Study Of Brain Tumors

Brain tumor is found amongst all types of humans around the world regardless of age or body type. There are some that are more prone to Brain tumor, as brain tumor can happen for those with bad nutritional choices. Internationally, brain tumor is found more amongst men than women. Clearly external factors contribute more to the development of brain tumors than genetic disposition. Bad habits of eating are main leading causes for health issues that lead into brain tumor development. The environment is yet another reason for the cause of human health problems. For many years the issue with pollution has been discussed by scientists and doctors around the world, warning people to minimize their use of gasoline/diesel powered machines.

Elderly are also another target for brain tumor and are advised to take action if any symptoms occur. The possibility of brain tumor grows higher as the environment around human’s changes. For example, the use of fast food is one of the biggest known factors to as the cause of bad health. An average person who consumes fast food more than 3 times weekly; he or she has a much weaker immune system to prevent brain tumor from developing. The consumption of fast food is widely spread around the humans, especially those that are in need of food in little times. Some fast food companies are so fast that once a person orders their meal; it would be ready in some matters of minutes. Some experts are to be questioned on whether the use of fast food should even be legal for children. The FDA has been trying to fight off some of the chemicals and harmful materials used by food producing companies, but over the years, food companies have been able to convince the FDA that their products are safe to consume. There are not too many choices as to what a person can get in a fast food restaurant. Normally the food consists of ground beef or chicken, and sometimes ground chicken, sold as chicken sandwich.

The reason for a fast food is the use of junk materials to be made cheap and easy. Just in the United States alone, there will be about 62,000 cases of brain tumor to be reported by this year. Brain tumor prevalence refers to the total number of people who have a brain tumor. It is estimated that more than 600,000 people in the United States are living with the diagnosis of a primary brain tumor (Bruce 22). This number has been growing very rapidly since the 1960’s. The rapid growth of the environment is the key element to this issue and yet we will experience more this problem with other diseases and sicknesses. On the other hand lays the use of second hand smoke which causes for poor blood circulation in the human body, which eventually leads into a brain tumor. To put bad food and bad habit of smoking together, we increase the chances of brain tumor by twice the normal amount a human being would be accepted for. Nevertheless the amount of stress and the lack of exercise we see in humans today than we learned many years ago.

Environment is another key factor as to what happens to humans as they evolve. A human body can change and associate itself with what is around it. Just like the way a person living in a cold place is used to the cold can also move to a much warmer place and still survive. In some cases though, a human body can adapt to the bad portions of the nature. For example, the harmful gasses that are produced by manufacturers and cars can leave a huge effect to how much oxygen is taken in by a human lung. A brain tumor is more likely caused by the lack of oxygen in the blood stream. The way to look at it would be that humans are the biggest consumers in terms of products around them.

Many trees are cut down each year for building houses and many areas are expanded for those wanting to live there. The environment as we see it today is in fact the most harmful place for a human being to live in. there are many sources as to the things that are around us that could the main cause for cancers. The brain cancer is yet another disease given to humans due to the lack of good environment. Humans are always exposed to bad sleeping hours and bad exercise habits that could lead into problems later in their life. Now brain tumor itself could not be caused by genetics alone, as the environment is to change genetics for everyone around. The main causes could simply be from the things that happen to humans in their everyday life as they tend to get along with the nature around them. Like for example, the use of cars has reduced the amount of exercise a person gets in their daily life. In many areas of the world where the transportation is not always an option; people tend to walk miles for grocery shopping or going to school.

One of the most famous uses of treatment is through chemotherapy, where the patient is injected with liquids that contain chemicals that kill the cancer cells. Sometimes chemotherapy is used as water and it is spread around on the brain tumor after the surgery is done. This will kill the cells that were missed by the surgery. Chemotherapy is a painful procedure and can always lead into further problems for the patient as they are being treated. They are not very safe and sometimes do lead into death for some people with a weaker immune system. There is also another method which is known as radiation and this too can have some serious effects on a human body and cause major problems for the person later in life. Although doctors do recommend the chemotherapy over radiation; it is still a debate on whether this is a good idea to be used on all patients or not. Doctors and scientists are still trying to find better ways to treat patients with brain tumor, but have yet to provide anything that works almost 100%. There are some better technologies coming out soon according to Dr. Duma and are showing better results for those with brain tumor. Some have been treated for more than 5 years and have been able to survive the brain tumor. Yet he does not call this a fix to this problem, but rather a good way of indicating of a good hope for the near future to a cure to this deadly disease. His impact is to find a better treatment that could stop the brain tumor completely in a short period of time. This is not to mention the fact that there are millions that are in need and some will not get this treatment soon enough to survive.

There are plenty of evidence as to what happens to a person with brain tumor, but the actual understanding is that a brain tumor can leave a permanent damage on a human being. As the person goes through with having a brain tumor, the expansion of the cells cause for an empty space and the lack of good brain cell production. This however is not to be mistaken with other cancers, since other cancers only affect the area they have occupied and once treated, they tend to leave very few issues. The amount of damage that a brain tumor leaves in a human body is almost enormous, such as having difficulty to remember things, or having damaged nerve system to where the person’s body is almost always out of control. The human body might be able to fight off some of things, but it cannot take control over everything. There are many theories as to what happens when you eat fast food. To some it may seem like normal daily value of calories and food nutrition’s. Perhaps we must look at this topic in a more open field as to what are these types of foods made of. For any reason that may come to mind, especially fast food; there are many additives that are added to the ingredients. One of the main ingredients that push a human being to eat this type of food would be MSG (Monosodium Glutamate). MSG is a type of chemical added to foods to preserve the taste; basically meaning that any type of food with MSG will taste good to your taste buds, regardless of the material.

In the society that we live in with work hours being so intense to allow for anyone to be able to exercise; we can see that not many people are in a big favor of working out. Get some form of exercise-- even a little is better than none. However, avoid exhaustion (Henson). There are some forms of exercise that are given to people with brain tumor that they should follow, but rather they are always avoiding these workouts, thus causing for more problems down the road. Although this is not forget that an individual should not overdo their workout, as this could lead into more problems, such as bad blood circulation or the spread of the disease. However some doctors do not recommend exercising at all costs as they believe that headache symptoms are to worsen with exercising.

In many cases some people are to never exercise and are still able to get away with simple treatments and have the brain tumor removed from their body. This is not to be that the lack of exercise before getting a brain tumor would be a good option, at all. To some experts, the human body is able to adjust itself to the nature and the things around it. This could be true as proven before with scientific measures, but yet the questions about exercising remains on, should everyone exercise? It would be safe to say yes everyone should even after having a brain tumor. The human body although very strong, it is sometimes weak when it comes to certain matters that could lead into higher risks, such as death. One could go without exercising and not even catch a cold, but that could not be said for just about anyone living in this world, as different environments have different effects on humans.

In Conclusion - There has been many ways made to approach this issue in the humans in the recent years with the new technologies available. There has yet been a cure to help those that are in need of the removal of the brain tumor. The tumor itself is one painful procedure, and the removal is yet another. In a study on rats in a lab; scientist found that the impact of the environment is so powerful that not only people can get brain tumor but also they can get many types of now known cancers. It is advised to not make the brain cancer alone as a deadly problem in life, rather the symptoms that are to follow with it. Some of the symptoms may never go away even once the tumor is treated and has been removed. The many months of chemotherapy will leave a very bad and harmful effect that will follow the person forever. It would be much better to stay safe than sorry at all times.

For any symptoms and signs of headaches and feelings of bad migraines visit your MD for more information and emergency purposes.

Thanks, M
