Multiple studies have studied the effects of shift work on breast cancer risk. Women who worked night shifts for 4 years and those who worked fewer than 3 night shifts per week both had a 30 percent higher risk of breast cancer than women who did not perform shift work at all, according to a 2012 study published in the International Journal of Cancer . In the first group, the women had entrained their bodies to the opposite of the normal day-night cycle, having worked night shifts regularly for several years. The second group of women never got a chance to fully get used to one schedule over the other, daytime or night. Both scenarios increased their risk of breast cancer.
I am diagnose with pancreatic cancer stage 4, and i have started to fast 9 day’s ago. My weight was then normal, but have lost now a few pounds. I am using tumeric also called curcuma as help by this fasting, because it is good i heard for the pancreas and liver area. But i heard if you go for long fasting in weeks, it is purify your body and your body recycling it’s self. Is it than useful to use a herb as curcuma, because maybe it is standing the way of how nature works in the way with your body recyclings. Or maybe it doesnt matter, because it is a herb and it has no negatve effects on a long fasting? Please can i get a advice of you?
