Cancer: Its Causes And Prevention

 

Cancer is a disease in which the tissues of the body react differently and grow exponentially. Doctors describe cancer to be caused due to accumulated damage to genes. Cancer-causing agents are known as carcinogens and can be anything from a chemical agent to genetic factors.

Causes of cancer

The roots of cancer disease can be divided based on its source. The sources are as following:

  • Biological or genetic factors – Age, skin type, gender, genetic defects, and other factors can be one of the chief factors for cancer. In this case, the patient can only hope for the best. The patient will have to prevent the symptoms and take care of oneself as far as possible.
  • Environmental exposure – In this case, the patient is exposed to different cancer-causing elements with or without knowledge. Elements like radon, UV radiation, and particulate matter are some of these elements. One should try to remain as far as possible from these elements.
  • Lifestyle factors – Lifestyle elements like tobacco, alcohol and other several substances can cause cancer.
  • Occupational risk factors like exposure to chemicals, radioactive materials, asbestos fibers, pitch and tar, and some plastic and metal compound are one of the leading causes of people working in construction or chemical industries.

Apart from these factors, there are certain bacteria and viruses like HBV, HCV and may other act as a carcinogen. Drugs that affect certain hormones and medicines that cause immune deficiency can also negatively affect health.

Prevention from cancer

While medical science is still figuring out the permanent solution of the disease, there are specific steps one can adapt to lead a healthy and cancer-free life.

  1. Avoid Tobacco

Tobacco is the leading cause of cancer, yet many people are still addicted to it. One should avoid or reduce costs as far as possible.

  1. Prefer a healthy diet

Healthy and organic diets are the need of the hour. The carcinogenic chemicals used for processing food should be avoided as much as possible.  Try maintaining plenty of organic fruits and vegetables and maintain good health.

  1. Avoid sun rays as much as possible

Skin cancer is one of the most common diseases. One should avoid direct sun rays as much as possible. The sun rays between 10 a.m to 4 p.m are direct and hence affect the skin a lot. Unless it’s necessary, try avoiding the sun as much as possible.

  1. Practice safe sex

Safe sex is one of the most significant problems of our time. People get involved with as many possible sexual partners and in the process expose themselves to various sexually transmitted diseases like HIV or HPV.

People, who are suffering from HIV, have higher chances of getting cancer of the anus, lung, and liver.

While there are many pieces of research being done on cancer, we are still far away from any concrete solution. Hence it is better to be safe than to be sorry. The initial stages of cancer can be treated permanently and accordingly it is advised by doctors to have regular examinations for any cancer. Any slight implication and you save yourself from a lot more orde

Worldwide Efforts To Overcome The Poverty

In France and the experience of some North American states, the plans to overcome poverty are coordinated at the highest level; this means that they depend directly on the Office of the Presidency and have “effectively” one priority. Pockets of poverty are registered, and then a high-level technical qualification manager is appointed, who develops diagnosis and generates a “package” of projects in various areas of community development; productive, infrastructure, health, housing, etc. And this “package” of projects have priority one for its financing in the budget of the respective ministries, prior consideration of technical quality and administrative compatibility. The advantage is in the synergy. It is very similar to USA Barrio but with a higher power of effective executive coordination of resources and technical level.

Today the scenarios are different, more unstable, more challenging for everyone. But what are the positive signs ?. We can see the emergence of new lines of programs that tend toward equity, such as primary education scholarships that seek to retain the poorest and most vulnerable students in education. The progressive increase in the coverage of pre-school education, which aims to provide women with access to work and children with a more systematic stimulation of their cognitive, affective and motor development. The strengthening of the network of services connected to the USA Barrios program. The reforms of SENAME and Health are being studied. The constitutional change that will allow more quick access to justice for all is already being implemented. In general good signs. The 2001 budget also brings promises of greater equity when effectively considering funds for situations of mass unemployment.

These are generally good news for those of us who work day to day with low-income families, but we know that resources will always be limited even more in difficult economic situations.

The shadows are the situation of the small company, the projections made regarding the number of people who will not reach in the USA to complete the minimum of contributions for their forecast. The added effect of the increase in labor informality leading to a lower effective number of people quoting, Old age is becoming, in good measure, synonymous with poverty for many USAans. According to ILO figures, 90% of workers in Latin America will not have social security for their old age. But not only old age, but also the precariousness of work is becoming synonymous with poverty for many hardworking workers. Minimum wages in the USA are below the poverty line for many years; these are calculated so that at least two people work in a family group of average size. There are regions like the ninth, where more than half of the workers earn salaries below the poverty line.

This has been possible because the educational offer has been expanded and every time the field of action becomes more competitive for the influx of other specialists in the areas that were traditionally almost exclusive heritage of the profession and our professionals are also accepted in others privative of geographers or architects or therapists. On the other hand, the complexity of these new realities forces us to look more globally at the transformations in the different local problems and facts, which implies enabling new, more diverse and complex readings.

However, the most critical capital of Social Work is that work “with” people, with marginalized people, is more than a matter of technique and efficiency, it is more than disciplinary knowledge and expertise, it is “natural” commitment, let me use that word It has to do with the formation of attitudes and skills, with a way of looking at people who have increasingly become more admired, admiring their cultural worlds, their abilities, what they are capable of doing. People when they have a good reason for it that is valid for overcoming poverty and for rehabilitation.

That’s why I believe that Social Work is the profession of revitalizing meanings, identities, values, vindicate what we have always been, the look that still singles us out, although the instrumental look of programs “for” people instead of people overwhelm us, although sometimes the offer of poor policies for the poor indignifies us, I make a call to recover the sense to re-enchant the taste for long-term processes, for those silent transformations that forge everyday cultural changes in the culture of respect for the rights of old age, of children, of women.

How To Overcome The Problem Of Poverty

A World Bank study based on a simulation model that allowed combining variables such as economic growth, poverty, inequality and education of the Labor Force shows that in the region one of the most significant factors that perpetuate bias is the distribution of budgets in school, which would tend to privilege the growth of contributions to university education to the detriment of basic training. The study concludes by projecting the variables in the current growth rate of Latin America during the next ten years; there will be two more poor people per minute. Only an accelerated increase in training in human capital can quickly pull the region out of poverty. This implies quality universal primary education for all young people in the next 20 years.

This would be one of the references that former Minister of Finance Mr. Aninat had in his hands, when after the re-evaluation of the Program to Overcome Poverty promoted by the government of President Eduardo Frei, it was decided to “focus efforts on overcoming the poverty in education “, allocating resources to increase the school days and improve the teaching staff.

However, we all know that in education significant transformations are needed to overcome the levels of inequality in which public school in the USA develops concerning private education.

The educational reform is meaning new opportunities for Social Workers, in the coordination of prevention programs, in the actions of Mental Health in education, in the implementation of new forms of school retention, expansion and diversification of social benefits for students, in end is a process still unfinished, and we know, the educational reform will not be without the participation of all professionals, the attorneys, society as a whole.

The extension of the school day, the programmatic transformation, the improvement of teachers are a significant effort, but they can not replace a coordinated work in other areas of social development.

The centralization of the strategy against poverty in education arises when it is evident that the efforts of coordination of the fight against poverty carried out by Mideplan with Minister Maira, were not giving results, then, Minister Sergio Pizarro, who replaces to the renounced Minister, tries to articulate a set of programs creating real public “Consortiums”, in which the programs were directed by plenipotentiary representatives of the different ministries involved. Thus arises among other programs, to name the most typical of this period the “USA Barrio,” however, In practice, it initially suffers from similar coordination difficulties that the policies of the concentration of public investment in priority communes due to poverty. The scale of the intervention had been changed, but coordination difficulties were not. What is in part, in the substratum of many of the inefficiencies of the public apparatus, is related to the fact that governments accede to multiparty coalitions without a service culture centered on people instead of on political relations, generating too much noise at the moment. to decide who “cuts the tapes.”

It can be seen that the central and local processes have not been adequately coupled to respond to the specific needs of specific territories and groups. Social Workers know about these articulations, we have experienced the divorce between the items of resources and the real strategic needs of overcoming poverty for the groups and territories with which we work. Somehow we also know about the accounting rigidity, the controls and the infinite repetition of the same solutions often evaluated as insufficient.

Issues & Family Relations!

One-parent families

  • One-parent families are the second counterpart of the typical nuclear family.
  • I also know very well the situation of a single-parent family.
  • It is all too often a complicated situation. Emotionally, socially, practically and financially a whole sandwich that needs to be lubricated every day.

A golden board! Let yourself be assisted if it becomes too tricky! Do not just sit and worry! The danger is that you end up in a negative spiral so that the problems get bigger instead of smaller!

Be assisted by a good friend, family or someone from the emergency services!

Again, I am not going to make a long list of what cargo covers the ‘one-parent family’ flag!

Again I would say: “Do not you have someone you can go to, or do not like to talk about your problems with friends or family, then give me a free sign!”

Country Growth

I am looking for a Country.

  • Where a food garden can be created
  • With a shop for selling the grown vegetables and local products
  • Where people can learn about self-sufficient living, food and connecting communication
  • Where you can also play, and fun can make

Where you still can be?

After a wonderful time living in beautiful Drenthe, I would like to spread my wings and am looking for a country where people can learn about food and connecting communication. Preferably somewhere in the middle of the country.

All About Social Relations!

 

Relationships

  • Relationship problems are as old as the street. Great wars have been fought for a loved one.
  • It keeps us all very busy.
  • Problems between partners often start with small things. Often very subtle, without anyone noticing.
  • It is essential that those little things are clarified. Some people like to talk; others prefer to be silent and think that it will pass.

For some things that are true. But other things continue to increase subcutaneously and before you know it you’re in a cascade of misunderstandings and real, more serious problems and for a while, and the road to ‘back as it used to be’ seems no longer to walk.

If the partners do not feel well, frustrated, angry, sad, anxious. Then it is essential that this is quickly clarified. With my proper intervention and your good will, the thread can be taken back to the past. I will help you to talk to each other about things that are usually not pronounced and that are at the source of the resentment or more.

A large proportion of the couples who come to me leave with a relieved feeling, with more insight into themselves and each other and succeed in lovingly living together again.

The others, those who have either wrongly chosen or who do not want to continue together, I can guide to a peaceful solution, the best solution for both.

Practical:

For relationship coaching, you can, of course, come with the two of you. That is ideal. But very often it happens that one of them sounds the alarm bell and the other person denies the problem, does not see or indeed does not want to go into therapy. Only coming is possible. It then takes you a lot further, and it often gives a lot of positive change and regularly it happens that the absent partner, because of that positive change, is also motivated to do something about it, and comes along.
