MORNING HAS BROKEN, HAPPY TUESDAY! I AM STILL HERE AND DOING GREAT.
YESTERDAY I WENT TO THE GYM AND WORKED OUT ON THE TREADMILL FOR 20 MINUTES AND DID SOME WEIGHTS. MY HOME PROGRAM IS COMING ALONG AS PLANNED. IT WILL NOT BE LONG UNTIL I GET TESTED FOR THE RESULTS TO MY PROGRESS.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MY DOCTORS FROM MEXICO FOR ALL THE HARD WORK IN GETTING ME BACK INTO SHAPE.
THE WORD OF THE DAY WHAT IS CANCER. IN ORDER TO TREAT AND MANAGE THIS DISEASE WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT IT IS?
The human body is made up of hundreds of millions of living cells. Normal body cells grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. During the early years of a person's life, normal cells divide faster to allow the person to grow. After the person becomes an adult, most cells divide only to replace worn-out or dying cells or to repair injuries.
Cancer starts when cells in part of the body start to grow out of control. There are more than 100 types of cancer, including breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lymphoma. Cancer cell growth is different from normal cell growth. Instead of dying, cancer cells continue to grow and form new, abnormal cells. Cancer cells can also invade (grow into) other tissues.
Cells become cancer cells due to damage to DNA. DNA is part of every cell and directs all its actions. In a normal cell, when DNA gets damaged the cell either repairs the damage or the cell dies. In cancer cells, the damaged DNA is not repaired, but the cell goes on making new cells that the body does not need. These new cells will all have the same damaged DNA as the first cell does.
People can inherit damaged DNA, but most DNA damage is caused by mistakes that happen while the normal cell is reproducing or by something in our environment. Sometimes the cause of the DNA damage is something obvious, like cigarette smoking. But often no clear cause is found.
