Cancer is a fatal condition caused by cells growing and reproducing uncontrollably.
These cancer cells can destroy the surrounding tissue, which contains healthy cells and organs.
Eating an unhealthy diet, smoking and not doing enough regular exercise are all risk factors for cancer.
But people are also more likely to develop cancer if they are higher, a scientist has argued.
Higher people are more prone to several types of cancer, Dr. Leonard Nunney claims, forming the University of California Riverside.
For every 10cm in height, the risk increases by about 13 percent for women, and about 11 percent for men.
The link can be caused by higher people who have more cells in the body, said Nunney.
“One of the major hypotheses was that something happens early in life that made your cells more susceptible to cancer and as a coincidence that causes you to grow tall,” Nu Nney told the guardian.
“Whether it comes from a better diet or the fact that your parents happen to be tall does not matter.”
“It’s clean a number of cells, but it caused it.”
Right people have an increased cell division, which can increase the risk of cancer, warned Nunney.
Melanoma cancer had an unexpectedly strong relationship to height, which may be caused by the growth hormone called IGF-1
, he said.
But Cancer Research UK said people did not have to worry about their height.
“A number of studies over the years have shown that higher humans appear to have a slightly higher risk of cancer. 19659002]” This study suggests that higher people are made of multiple cells, so there is more potential for a of them go wrong and become cancerous. “
” But the increased risk is small and there is plenty you can do to reduce the risk of developing cancer such as smoking a. Keeping a healthy weight. “
More than one in three people will get cancer at any time during their lifetime, added charity Macmillan Cancer Support.
For most, elderly are the major risk factor for cancer. Generally, people over 65 are more likely to to develop cancer than people under the age of 50.
Smoking is the biggest preventable cause of cancer. About 20 percent of all cancer cases are caused by smoking.
Talk to a doctor if you are worried about signs and symptoms of cancer or if you think you might be in danger.
