Pediatric malignancies develop early in life (some probably in the womb called fetal origin of adult disease) and over a much shorter time period than it takes for adults to develop cancer. This suggests, says a consensus statement from Europe (European Network for Cancer Research in Children and Adolescents 7th Framework Programme) that fewer and stronger events are required for cancer to happen in children.
What are the risk factors:
- Like environmental exposures.
- Nutrient deficiencies.
- Methylation issues.
- Gut issues.
- Too many antibiotics too early, not followed up by probiotics and fermented foods.
- Compared with adult cancers, most cancers in children show fewer genetic causes. (Even in adults, genes only account for 5 to 10% of cancers)
- So you the parent need to take charge:
- Detox before you conceive.
- Keep a greener home
- A greener supermarket cart.
