Cancer is NOT contagious disease
The human body is made up of trillions of living cells. The growth of these cells, division and dying process occurs in organized manner. This process is regulated by DNA. When DNA damage is occurred in normal cells, it’s either dies or get repaired but in cancer cells, the damaged DNA neither repairs nor dies. This damage causes rise of abnormal cells with abnormal DNA. The new cells contain abnormal DNA. There are different causes of damaged DNA. Environmental toxins that are present in Cigarette smoke may damage DNA. It can be inhered from parents. Use Alcohol, physical inactivity, obesity, prolonged exposure to Ultraviolet radiations from the sun, impaired immunity including HIV infections leads to several types of cancers.
