Colon cancer has jumped to the second leading terminal cancer killer in the United States, next only to the lung cancer. Colon cancer appears more frequently in women while rectal cancer has a higher occurrence in men. Periodic colon cleansing could minimize the exposure of potential carcinogens to the colon walls. The warm and filtered water that is induced into the colon, dilutes the toxic concentration in the cecum, facilitates the removal of the wastes.
According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, the lung and colon are mutually attached; they rely on each other to perform a physiological action in a cooperated manner. Functionally, these two organs are closely related in such a way that is described as frontend and backend with lung being the frontend and colon as the backend.
Although the causes of the two types of cancer are not clearly defined, clinically there is no lack of colon cancer metastasized to lung, causing lung cancer and vice versa. In a word, lung and colon are functionally, physiologically and pathologically related.
Colon cancer is developed from the polyps (benign tissues) in the colon, rectum, and anus. The long term stimulation works as the chemical catalyst that forms up the chemical environment suited for the cell mutation and results in the colon cancer. The cause of colon cancer is believed to be the individual or the combination effect of the poor diet, genetic factors and environmental pollution. The key point in treating and preventing the colon cancer is early detection and early treatment. Those who have a family history or potentially in a high risk, should have colon checkup regularly and have the polyps removed before it is too late.
