Interesting facts about cancer
- Every person has cancer cells in their body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion times.
- When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
- Cancer cells occur in the body between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
‘New research shows that a primary tumor usually suppresses the formation of secondary tumors! [1,2,3,4] Once the primary cancer has been removed secondary cancers are more likely to form,’ says Chamilla Sanua from Weleda Pharmacies. ‘This is due to a substantial reduction in Natural Killer cells (NK) immediately after surgery. This should be taken into account as a possible scenario when deciding to remove certain kinds of cancers,’ explains Chamilla.
