Steve Jobs's Pancreatic Cancer

Late Apple Founder, Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer. It's a sad news to the world especially the iPhone and Apple product lovers.

How did the cancer formation happen? I hope that everyone can understand about this so we can do a BETTER PREVENTION. 

It took 8 years time between his cancer diagnosis till his death. 

Do you know that 2/3 of the time when cancer cells start multiplying, the cancer can't be diagnosed by the doctor, specialist or machine? 

The reason is that when it starts to multiply, the amount is still very small. It starts from 1 cancer cell, multiply to 2 cancer cells to 4 cancer cells..

Once many cancer cells form a tumor, it will start to spread. 

There is a limitation to our medical machine. When the number of cancer cells are still not significantly large, the machine is not able to detect the cancer cells. 

Even the most advance machine PET scan can only DETECT cancer cells when it is at least 1mm or 2mm size. Anything less than that size, the machine can't tell the existence of cancer. 

However, do you know that when 1mm size of cancer has been detected, how many cancer cells are there in the single dot (1mm) already? It has 1 MILLION of cancer cells already!!

Imagine once this 1 million cancer cells multiply, the number will become 2 millions, then 4 millions and so on. The cancer cells increase fast! 

Can you now relate that why a patient after getting diagnosed with cancer, usually after a short while, it will reach terminal stage? The cancer cells spread fast with big amount keep multiplying. 

For Steve Jobs's case, his cancer cell is a chronic pancreatic cancer cell which multiplied quite slowly, multiplied every 10 months. Majority of the Solid Tumors multiply every 3 to 7 months.
Hence if we back calculate when Steve Jobs started to have cancer cells in his body, it's actually when he was in his 20's. 

In summary, 
2/3 of time when cancer cells exist, our body and doctors can't tell us. 
the remaining 1/3 when cancer is diagnosed, it may be too late for curing.

Hence all the above give us a clear message that: 
We have to start changing our diet and lifestyle during the 2/3 of time to kill the cancer cells when they are still small. 

Our body has a very important defence system (which is immune system) to help us detect and damage the cancer cells.
