A hundred year ago, cancer was not so common but since last couple of decades, its incidence has been rising alarmingly, probably due to our changing lifestyle and habits. The situation is so alarming that every fourth person is having a life time risk of cancer. India registers more than 11 lac new cases of cancer every year whereas this figure is above 14 millions worldwide. We are constantly exposed to a variety of cancer causing agents, known as carcinogens, in the food, we eat; in the water, we drink and in the air, we breathe. Our single meal may contain a dozen of carcinogens in the form of residues of pesticides and insecticides. Exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phone towers, cell phones, computers and other electrical appliances can cause cancer. Likewise there is a long list of chemical, physical, biological and geographical carcinogens.
Transformation of a normal cell into a cancerous cell is probably not such a critical event in the genesis of cancer rather it is the inability of immune cells of the body to identify & destroy the newly formed cancer cells when they are a few in number. We have observed that the risk of cancer is multiplied in those persons, whose immune system is suppressed due to any factor including chronic stress, old age, chronic debilitating disease and abuse of drugs such as analgesics, antibiotics, corticosteroids & chemotherapy. Moreover, the life has become fast and competitive, ‘cradle to grave’ leading to chronic stress that further enhances the risk of cancer by suppressing immune system of the body. The risk of cancer is also increased in those persons, who are affected by Human Papilloma Virus, HIV and many other viral infections including Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
Conventional approach to treat cancer is to cut it (surgery), burn it (radiotherapy) and poison it (chemotherapy). When a cancer is localised, it can be totally removed by surgery but in most of the cases, it is practically impossible to detect cancer in such an early stage. The cancerous cells do get killed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but both of these therapies also destroy some vital cells in the body, leading to serious side effects. Another major drawback of chemotherapy is the drug resistance. Recurrences are very common after chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Other conventional techniques used in the treatment of cancer including bone marrow transplantation, peripheral stem cell transplantation, hormone therapy, photodynamic therapy, cryosurgery, immunotherapy and gene therapy have their own limitations.
Sino Vedic Cancer Research Centre was founded in 1985 by Dr. S.P. Kaushal along with a team of doctors and scientists with the aim to explore role of herbs to fight cancer. Over a period of more than 25 years, the Sino Vedic Cancer Research Centre identified more than 450 anticancer herbs having antimutagenic, DNA repairing, proapoptotic, antitumourangiogenesis, immunomodulatory, chemoprotective and radioprotective properties and developed various anticancer herbal formulations that help to fight cancer at every stage without side effects.
Sino Vedic Cancer Research Centre has designed this website with the aim to educate people about causes, prevention and early detection of cancer. This website further elaborates the role of Sino Vedic Herbal Formulations in our Fight against Cancer.
Thousands of patients, suffering from various types and stages of cancer have been treated by Sino Vedic Herbal Formulations since more than two decades. We are sharing the response of Sino Vedic Herbal Formulations in some of our Exemplary Cases.
