Most seniors work at places like SRS and got cancer from making nuclear bombs and nuclear waste. Plus, everyone has cancer cells, there just not active. When cancer cells are active they cause cancer tumor.
When people are old, they become weak and less defence. Plus when they become weak and defenceless, the body inside them also become weak and defenseless so then it is easy for them to get cancer than most youths
The gland (Thymus) that is responsible for providing a great many immune system cells is very active in youth and at puberty begins to atrophy (deteriorate) and by old age is pretty much useless making older people more susceptible to numerous illnesses, not just cancer
Younger people I know... has been diagnosed with cancer. So, it's not just older people. People develop cancer when they are a child, so it's most likely that we have it in us, and when we get older, we will most likely experience a lot of the symptoms. If you actually expose yourself to anything that will cause Cancer, you are at risk of getting Cancer.
Think of it this way. If you are exposed to a carcinogen one time, it will only hurt your cells a little, but the more you are exposed to it, the more the damage builds up. Older people have more exposure.
I've had cancer, and, I never smoked, barely drank! Research has shown that we have genes that are predisposed to cancer, especially if close relatives have had it. I suspect second hand smoke and all the plastics and synthetics we live with probably contribute as well as the atmosphere. More testing is done these days, but we need to test younger people for certain diseases. With more public awareness, more are getting treatment and "living!"
Research shows that by the time a woman finds a lump i her breast it has been growing for 9 yrs!...prob holds true for other cancers as well...but it has everything to do with your genetics and how strong your immune system is...Antioxidants are cancer eaters like lil pac man and keep cells strong ...so they dont let cancer penetrate...it has been proven...Antioxidant therapy (pure NON cooked organic fruits and vegetables and juicing them) search for ...The Gerson Therapy...on you tube and Food Matters...Learn the truth...Big Pharma does not want you to know because Cancer is BIG Business!!!!
