What Is Cancer ?

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread. Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss and a change in bowel movements.

Causes Of Cancer :

  • genetic mutations from environmental and lifestyle factors.
  • Tobacco use is the cause of about 22% of cancer deaths.
  • Poor Diet,
  • Obesity,
  • Lack Of Physical Activity
  • Excessive Drinking of alcohol
  • Exposure To ionizing Radiation and Environmental Pollutants
    15% of cancers are due to infections such as Helicobacter pylori, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, human papillomavirus infection, Epstein–Barr virus and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

    What do we know about cancer ?

    Everybody thinks it cannot happen to them. And yet, six million people die of cancer every year. Approximately every fourth citizen of a developed country will be stricken sometime during his
    life and approximately 400 new incidents emerge per 100,000 people annually.

    Plants and cancer

    Throughout human history, plants have been an indispensable source of natural products for
    medicine. The chemical constituents of the plant cell that exert biological activities on human
    and animal cells fall into two distinct groups, depending on their relative concentration in the
    plant body, as well as their major function: primary metabolites, the accumulation of which
    satisfies nutritional and structural needs, and secondary metabolites, which act as hormones,
    pharmaceuticals and toxins.

    Plant-derived natural products with documented anticancer/antitumor properties can be classified into the following 14 chemical groups:

  • 1 Aldehydes
  • 2 Alkaloids
  • 3 Annonaceous acetogenins
  • 4 Flavonoids
  • 5 Glycosides
  • 6 Lignans
  • 7 Lipids
  • 8 Lipids (unsaponified)
  • 9 Nucleic acids
  • 10 Phenols and derivatives
  • 11 Polysaccharides
  • 12 Proteins
  • 13 Terpenoids
  • 14 Unidentified compounds.
