Scientists have called cancer-inducing habits

German scientists called the unobvious factors provoking the development of oncology. This is what the Focus edition writes about.

According to specialists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), not only smoking and unhealthy food can lead to cancer. Those who like to sit near an airplane window are at risk: airplane windows let in up to 47% of UVA rays, which lead to premature aging of human skin, and this increases the risk of skin cancer. Oncology can also provoke the habit of driving in a car with an open window: the development of lung and bladder cancer is affected by exhaust fumes.

Other hazards include toxic ink on cash receipts printed on thermal Bisphenol A (BPA) paper, refusal of condoms during sex (the papillom virus affects the cervix and can cause cancer), and smartphone screen light that deprives the body of melatonin.

In addition, experts called dangerous cosmetics with mineral oils, as well as the use of hot soups and drinks. Thus, the liquid, which temperature is above +65 ° C, damages tissues and cells of the esophagus, which can cause cancer.

The risk of developing cancer of the liver, mouth, throat and mammary gland increases alcohol. For example, a man can drink no more than 0.5 beers per day, while a woman can drink half as much.

On January 13, it was reported that the director of the cancer center of Rechts der Isar Clinic of the Technical University of Munich, Khana Algyul, told about the signs by which violations in the work of the pancreas can be identified.
