1. Poor Dental Hygiene

Poor cleaning of the teeth, tongue, and mouth can cause changes in cell growth that can make a person susceptible to oropharyngeal (a type of throat cancer). Despite regular cleaning of the mouth, teeth, and tongue by them washing twice daily, it’s important to also visit a dentist at least once in 3months for proper dental inspection and treatment.

2. Smoking

Smoking endangers the overall health in various ways though sometimes they can be prescribed by a doctor to speed some healing process yet, smoking outside a doctor’s advice can damage not only the lungs but may result in throat and/lung cancer. Hence, stop smoking and talk to a therapist.

3. Poor Nutrition

Poor selection/intake of foods can increase the risk of developing throat cancer especially the regular intake of foods that are not rich in antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and lycopene.

Hence, fatty-rich foods like sardine and mackerel, fruits like orange, watermelon, and tomatoes, and vegetables should be included in diets regularly. Also, reduce fat and sodium intake and engage in physical activities(like singing and talking) to improve lungs and throat function.

4. Excessive Alcohol Intake

Alcohol may be enjoyable and may provide some benefits to those who drink it moderately but if it’s taken in excess it can cause dry mouth that may cause inflammation on the throat and vocal cord(by causing the cells in the mouth and throat to absorb harmful substances) which may result in throat cancer.

Causes, Symptoms And Prevention Of Throat Cancer

The combination of smoke and alcohol can be very dangerous to the lungs and throat health. Hence, reduce alcohol intake, drink enough water (to dilute alcohol whenever it’s taken in excess), and exercise regularly.

In addition, a person experiencing any two of the above-listed signs should exercise more, eat more vegetables, fruits like watermelon, carrots, fish, chicken, eggs, and low-fat dairy products such as milk to fight throat cancer.
