Salivary glands are present in the mouth, near the back of the tongue and in the nose. These are glands that secrete saliva and remove food particles that have lodged in them. The salivary gland is also involved in the digestion of proteins and can cause an increased risk of oral cancer. The disease may begin slowly or rapidly, depending on the conditions of growth of the cancer cells. The following are some Salivary gland cancer risk factors.
Age. The presence of a tumor in the salivary gland cancer risk factors increases with age. This is due to the slow but progressive growth of the cancer cells. In as much as tumors may not develop for several years after first appearing, they do tend to remain active for longer periods. The effects of aging on the body include lower levels of the body's circulating free radicals. These are substances that damage cells and damage DNA.
Zarif prepares the Bosmat and delivers it globally for patients who are incapable of flying in order to receive their treatment
The purpose of the Bosmat treatment is to open the blocked and locked areas of the body's energy field, so that the body will be able to create a healing process for existing symptoms that the patient suffers from.
For years, Oren Zarif proved that as the energy blocks open, the body begins to create a healing process and returns to its strength, thousands of patients testify for it.
Female sex. Women have a two fold risk in developing cancer cells in the salivary glands. First, it is the result of having ovaries. Second, women who were pregnant during their younger days have undeveloped glands and higher levels of estrogen.
Race. It has been determined that African American men have higher chances of contracting Salivary gland cancer. The reason for this is because the Salivary glands in this race are much smaller in size. This is the reason why African American men have a five to ten times higher risk of developing the cancer than the white men.
Lifestyle and environment. One of the Salivary gland cancer risk factors is unhealthy lifestyle. People with unhealthy lifestyle have slow rate of growth of the glands. They are not in a habit of taking in enough nutrients. They live in cities where air pollution is very high. These factors contribute to cancer cells.
There are other factors that can be controlled but these two are quite important. Other risk factors include heredity and obesity. These two are hereditary conditions. Hereditary cancer is not that easy to control as it is a disorder. On the other hand, people with obesity are more likely to develop the disease. Obesity leads to increased fat deposition which can increase the risk of cancer cells. Cigarette smoking also increases the risk. It has been noted that there is a direct relation between the amount of tobacco and the development of cancer. Cigarette smoking also affects the salivary gland directly. Saliva production slows down with regular cigarette smoking.
Stress has also been cited as one of the most significant risk factors for cancer of the glands. Stress has been associated with a number of cancers. It is therefore advisable for you to work out and de-stress yourself often. It does not necessarily mean you have to go on a diet but you must learn to relax your mind and body often to help keep stress away from your life.
