5 major causes of lymphoma
1. Acidic constitution
The body fluids in the human body are normally weakly alkaline (PH between 7.35 and 7.45), so that normal physiological functions can be maintained. If the pH value of body fluids hovers around 7.35 or slightly lower than this value, it means that the body has an acidic body, which means that the body is in a sub-healthy state between health and disease.
If lymphoid tissue remains in acidic body fluids for a long time, the amount of dissolved oxygen in its cells will decrease, cell activity will decrease, and the body's metabolic cycle will slow down, which will produce a large amount of acidic waste. When these wastes accumulate to a certain extent in the lymphoid tissue system, Tissue cells will become cancerous.
The causes of acidic constitution include unreasonable diet, lack of exercise, excessive psychological burden, addiction to tobacco and alcohol, irregular life, etc. Therefore, we must pay attention to a healthy lifestyle. The harm that an unhealthy lifestyle brings to the human body is often not immediate, but develops over time.
2. Viral factors
Lymphoma virology research has found that the occurrence of lymphoma may be related to Epstein-Barr virus, human T-lymphotropic virus, and human B-lymphotropic virus. If the human body is infected with these viruses, lymphoma can easily be induced.
The human body's immune system has an immune surveillance function. Under normal circumstances, the immune system can automatically eliminate mutated or cancerous cells in the body. If there is an immune deficiency and the protective wall collapses, viruses can easily invade and cause infection. Patients with AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, organ transplantation, etc., whose immune function is low, have a higher chance of developing lymphoma than normal people.
4. Genetic factors
Lymphoma has a hereditary predisposition. If someone in your family has had lymphoma, your risk of contracting lymphoma will be greatly increased. Therefore, people with a family history of lymphoma should pay special attention and should undergo regular lymphoma screening.
5. Physical factors and chemical factors
People who are exposed to various types of radiation or chemicals for a long time without taking relevant protective measures are more likely to develop lymphoma. Therefore, if you are exposed to these factors for a long time due to occupational reasons, you must take relevant protective measures to minimize the damage.
The above are the five major factors that lead to lymphoma. To summarize, in fact, if you want to prevent lymphoma, you must pay attention to developing healthy diet and living habits, strengthen exercise, improve the body's immunity, and try to avoid contact with harmful substances. If you have lymphoma People with family history must get screened regularly.
