EATING FISH IS LINKED TO AN INCREASE IN MELANOMA RISK

Having a fish is mostly a requirement of the world. It is a good source of a protein diet and provides a good source of lean protein. Studies say that pregnant or breastfeeding eat at least 8 and 12 ounces per week but might be heard that healthy food also causes damage, fish also has a drawback such as mining or improper waste disposal chemicals can end up in the fish through waterways and can harm your nervous system, cause you, infants, etc. but that doesn’t mean that in taking fish is bad, fish is very helpful for our body.

Studies have shown that there are other foods that increase your blood pressure, increase the risk of heart disease, etc. Recently we heard that eating fish can increase the levels of melanoma in the body. Let’s see if it’s true or false.

WHAT IS MELANOMA?

Melanoma is a disease that makes your skin cancerous and thus leads to serious skin cancer in the pigment cells. Melanoma is caused mainly due to overproduction of melanin in the cells.

When melanocytes tend to grow out of control and invade the body tissue and travel to different parts of the body that is when you have real melanoma.

SYMPTOMS OF MELANOMA

There are not many symptoms of melanoma but there are a few common ones that can help you that you have melanoma. Such symptoms are:

1. Swelling of the pigment in the outer layer of the body.
2. Redness of the pigments spot on the surrounding skin
3. Itchiness
4. Darkening of the skin
5. Mole color changes

TREATMENT OF MELANOMA

Treating melanoma in its early stage will be the curable way and doesn’t cause any serious problems to your body. Once it spread to different parts of the skin it started to spread deeper into the body it’s become serious.
Treatment of melanoma includes:

1. Surgery
2. Radiations
3. Relatlimab drug
4. Chemotherapy

EATING FISH IS LINKED TO AN INCREASE IN MELANOMA RISK

Enlarge studies by scientists Published in cancer, cause and control state that consumption of fish can lead to an increase in skin cancer. Doctors to grown found that “compared to those whose daily fish intake was 3.2 grams the melanoma are not much higher but people who intake 4.3 grams daily have a higher risk of 22%.

However, a closer examination of the findings reveals that the findings do not necessarily imply that we should all exclude fish from our diets to avoid skin cancer. When it came to specific types of fish, persons who ate more tuna and non-fried fish had a higher melanoma rate. Surprisingly, there was no link to fried fish consumption. While this may seem counterintuitive, it is most likely owing to the little amounts of fried fish consumed each day — ranging from less than one to seven grams (equivalent to one heaped teaspoon).

Although the researchers took into account factors that could influence the outcomes, such as physical activity, smoking, family history of cancer, and alcohol use, the adjustment for daily UV exposure was merely based on the average UV index for the area they resided in.

This suggests that no adjustments were made for UV exposure related to a person’s job. They also lacked information on melanoma risk factors such as the number of moles on the skin, hair color, a history of severe sunburn, and individual sun-related behaviors.

Causation isn’t the same as observation. The findings of this study show that eating fish does not increase the risk of melanoma. This is because it is a “cohort study,” meaning that participants were followed throughout time to see if they developed melanoma.
