Prevention of brain cancer?

Hi Everyone, Brain cancer, like any other cancer on Earth is not only curable (once diagnosed), but 100% avoidable. Very easy - in the most natural way - an exercise... Reality of the Future?... Living on the safe side of Life... Where not a single disease exists... Everybody relax! The greatest discovery in human history has been made - The Uncompromising Bacteria, Viruses and Cancers Killer (UBVCK). Ready for use... Thanks to it, The Vaccines-, Cancers- and Infectious Diseases-Free World is just around the corner... Mortality due to cancers and infectious diseases worldwide has been reduced, but not eliminated... The plague of Cancer can be erased from the face of the Earth. Very easy. The same goes for Infectious Diseases. Any inflammation inside the human body can be completely avoided... I call it Immunizer - just a simple exercise, but The Complete Colds/Flus/AIDS/HPV/HBV/HCV/West Nile/Yosemite/ Cancers Prevention - normally done for a minute a day for kids and adults as the full prevention of the major plagues of civilization. If done for 3 - 4 minutes a day, the immunizer will guarantee a very fast recovery for those infected by said viruses and from any forms of Cancer (Brain, Liver, Lung, Anal, Cervical, Ovarian, Colon, Prostate, Breast and all the rest)... Guaranteeing everybody the Iron Constitution, the immunizer guarantees a considerable Life Extension... Once your body does not have to fight bacteria, viruses and cancers... You can also turn off the heating of your home, as you will not feel cold like you felt before you started doing the immunizer. The energy you used for heating, now will be spared. One can imagine how much energy will be spared worldwide... I will disclose my Dream Immunizer (The Deadliest on Earth, The T-Rex Bacteria, Viruses and Cancers Killer) to everybody in the world, if I am paid 500 Billion US Dollars (or BP) and all of us - kids and adults - will stay absolutely healthy all the time, all our lives, even if we are directly exposed to any possibly existing bacteria, viruses and cancers on Earth - mutant, resistant, deadly and all the like. No killer viruses, bacteria and cancers on Earth got any chance against the tremendous power of the immunizer - they just die the moment they touch you...

Is brain cancer fatal?

Very often; yes. Brain cancer needs to be found very early and be very small and be located in an easy to reach location for there to be any real chance of survival. Most cases of brain cancer are not found until there is a reason to look for it and by than it is often too late. Brain cancer can also show up anywhere in the brain; many locations that simply cannot be operated on. Unlike some other types of cancer, brain cancer is not one that can be checked at home; and its symptoms often do not show up until it is already at a growth point that is near fatal. Brain cancer has a 5 year survival rate of 32% By comparison there are at least 17 types of cancer with higher survival rates (for example prostate has 98% and breast cancer has 86% survival rates) There are only 6 types of cancer with a lower survival rate ranging from stomach (23%) down to pancreas (4%).

Is Brain Cancer the same as a Brain tumor?

No, but a brain tumor is cancerous, just not quite the same. I hope you don't mind, but I have a story to tell you. My mom had a brain tumor, it was the size of an orange. I don't remember it because I was maybe 4. The operation to remove it took maybe 4 hours, and she is fine now, but has lost a little bit of memory, like math and science. Anyways, a brain tumor is abnormal development of tissue that squishes your brain and can kill you easily. Brain cancer is when cells in your brain begin to grow out of control because those cells have DNA damage and when they make another through asexual reproduction, the new cell has DNA damage. The roundup: My mom had a brain tumor when I was around four; A brain tumor and brain cancer are both cancerous but different because a brain tumor is excessive growth of tissue; brain cancer is when a damaged cell in your brain reproduces asexually and keeps reproducing until there are too many damaged brain cells. Hope I helped! :)

Primary tumors of the brain and central nervous system are often associated with HIV infection. Men and caucasians have a higher risk of developing brain tumors. Other risk factors being studied include children with a history of previous radiation treatment to the head for cancer; parents with certain cancers (nervous system, salivary gland, colon); having an older father; having well-educated parents; occupational exposure to vinyl chloride, lead, and pesticides; history of epilepsy; history of certain genetic conditions (tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, von Hippel Lindau, familial polyposis, Osler-Weber-Rendu, Li-Fraumeni).

How can cellphone cause brain cancer?

A cellphone sends out its messages by means of a microwave broadcast, which is picked up by the nearest cellphone tower. If you are holding the cellphone to your ear, in order to hear a phone call, the broadcast is taking place very close to your brain. Intensity of any emitted radiation (including microwaves) varies inversely as the square of the distance, so when the emitter is very close, it is also tremendously more intense than it would be at a greater distance. In the case of a cellphone, even a distance of a few inches would make a huge difference in intensity of radiation, as compared to holding it right up to your ear. The exact connection between microwave radiation and cancer has not been worked out, however, in general, radiation is a form of energy which can cause chemical reactions to occur. If genetic material (DNA) undergoes certain types of chemical reactions, that can alter the way that the cell functions, which includes the possibility of cancer.
