The lung is a vital organ formed part of the respiratory system located near the backbone on either side of the heart that inhales oxygen from the air to the bloodstream and exhales carbon dioxide from the bloodstream.
According to the statistic, in the US, approximately 541,000 Americans are living with lung cancer at some points in their lives. In 2018, approximately 234,000 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed, representing about 13 percent of all cancer diagnoses.
Prolonged exposure to second-hand smoke can also increase the risk of lung cancer.
* Exposure to certain chemicals
Risk of lung cancer is increased for people who inhale or expose certain industrial chemical such as radon gas, arsenic, chromium, nickel, etc. in the workplace.
* Family history
Risk of lung cancer increased if one of the members of the direct family has lung cancer.
* Lung disease
Risk of lung cancer is increased if you have or previously had certain types of lung disease
* Excessive alcohol drinking
Alcohol intake of more than 2 drinks per day is associated with a small increased risk of lung cancer.
According to statistic, approximate 87% of lung cancer deaths are caused by smoking.
These foods contain a high amount of antioxidants which enhance the immune system against the forming of free radicals and prevent the alternation of cell DNA cause of abnormal cell growth.
Second smoke contains the same amount of carcinogens, exposure to it can increase the risk of lung cancer.
Avoid exposure to certain industrial chemicals such as radon gas, arsenic, chromium, nickel, etc.. In the workplace, deal with them by taking maximum precautions and prevention.
* Reduced alcohol intake
Researchers found that increased risk of lung cancer for people who have more than 2 drinks a day.
On finding a potential compound for the treatment of cancer, researchers examined the effects of onionin A (ONA) derived from the onion in the inhibition of tumor-associated macrophages in the M2 phenotype.
* Onionin A (ONA) inhibits macrophage polarization into the M2 phenotype associated with tumorigenesis by antagonizing the cytotoxic activity immune cells.
Based on the finding, researchers said, “NA administration enhanced the antitumor effects of cisplatin in the tumor-bearing mice”.
