Probiotics, A Cancer Killer
- Oct 11, 2018 -

Cancer, or malignant tumor, has become one of the most common deadly diseases. The world produces about 11 million new cancer cases every year, of which 20.3 percent are new cases in China. It has been a public enemy of health. The occurrence of cancer is closely related to genetic, environmental pollution, bad habit, dietary nutrition, virus infection and radiation. The most common cancers were lung cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer and esophageal cancer, while the most common cancers were breast cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer and cervical cancer. The overall incidence of cancer is on the rise in the world, with significantly increased cancers including lung cancer, breast cancer and colorectal cancer. Significantly reduced cancers included gastric cancer and cervical cancer.


Cancer is caused by normal cells whose proto-oncogenes are activated by mutagens and transformed into uncontrolled abnormal cells. The new tissue produced by the abnormal proliferation of these cells does not have the function of normal tissue, and its main activity is to constantly consume the body's resources, occupy space, and increasingly rapid division and proliferation. Hyperplasia is also known as a "tumor." Cancer is generally referred to as a malignant tumor. Cancer cells escape from the malignancy and pass through the blood and lymphatic system to other organs to form new tumors.

The principle of cancer control is "prevention first, prevention combined, early detection, early diagnosis and early treatment." Because one-third of all cancers are preventable. We can see two key points from the process of cancer formation: one is the mutagen, or carcinogen; The second is the monitoring of abnormal cells.

What role can probiotics play in the two key points of cancer prevention? First, let's look at the formation or source of carcinogens. The 10 trillion bacteria in the intestine make up a small chemical plant, where harmful bacteria break down digested food and other substances in the body into many carcinogens, most commonly nitrosamines, indoles, phenols, and secondary bile acids. We also eat foods that contain some pre-carcinogens and carcinogens (mostly cured, smoked, grilled, or Fried). What do probiotics do with them? First, probiotics can inhibit carcinogens and precarcinogens by binding, blocking, or removing them. It also inhibits the activity of bacteria and enzymes that may turn precarcinogens into carcinogens. To put it simply, probiotics can absorb carcinogens and process or transfer carcinogens, reducing their toxicity. Probiotics help keep the body away from harmful bacteria and enzymes, and they don't have the opportunity to process carcinogens. The most typical example is probiotics can reduce the activity of fecal enzymes and effectively prevent colon cancer. Second, probiotics acidify the gut and regulate the gut flora, thereby reducing the number of harmful bacteria and changing bile solubility. To reduce the conversion of bile into the carcinogen secondary bile acid. Thirdly, probiotics can promote intestinal peristalsis and accelerate the excretion of harmful carcinogens in feces.

For the second key point, probiotics also play a role in abnormal cells. First, probiotics can activate the immune system and improve the immune response. Once there are abnormal cells in the body, the immune system will quickly detect them and then react. Tumor necrosis factor, interleukin and interferon produced by immune cells are the weapons against tumor. Second, probiotics produce compounds that inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Like some functional glycopeptides. Third, probiotics can produce anti-mutation substances and block the attack of harmful cells, inhibit the transformation of abnormal cells, and play a role in preventing cancer.
