Steve Jobs is a pancreatic cancer sufferer, like actor Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer in September 2009. Here is a little about pancreatic cancer who quoted from the Sol Goldman, John Hopkins Medical Center and WebMD. This article is part of the book Fat Loss Weight Loss Diabetes note which will be released shortly. Diabetes is associated with the pancreas.
Another thing that attracted me to share the coincidence is that I learned marketing, so it is quite familiar figure of Steve Jobs is not Apple user though. Steve Jobs health is observed to be interesting, because the stock price of Apple shares Steve’s health is influenced by rumors.
For example, when Steve looked unwell at an event at MacWorld 2009, Steve said he “was in a hormone imbalance”. Then when he announced it will undergo treatment, Apple’s stock price fell. Every time a rumor circulated, either genuine or fake about Steve’s health, then the share price will fall.
Steve Jobs is known with pancreatic cancer. And the following is an overview of pancreatic cancer.
The pancreas is a gland in the form of tubes, about 15 cm, located at the back of the abdomen. The main task for the human body produces an enzyme that helps adalh intestine break down food, and produce the hormone insulin which helps the blood sugar regulation.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death both men and women and is one of the most deadly cancers, also known in medical circles as the “silent killer” 38,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 34,000 of them will die from it.
This cancer can actually be managed if found at an early stage but the problem of cancer is difficult to diagnose early stage.
In the early stages of cancer does not feel any symptoms. However, along with the magnitude of the growth of cancer, then it will feel pain in your upper abdomen that spread to the back left.
The pain becomes when people affected by cancer eating or lying down. Other symptoms that appear are aliases yellow jaundice. Ability to survive for 5 years is 25 percent if the cancer surgery and was appointed as a child and has not spread.
Anyone who is at greatest risk for pancreatic cancer? The following are the factors that influence the incidence of pancreatic cancer:
1.Faktor descent. If there are 2 or more relatives who suffer from pancreatic cancer.
2. Ashkenazi Jewish descent
3. BRCA mutations
4. Age above 50 years
5. Heavy smokers.
7. Others, such as chronic liver disease, obesity, lack of exercise.
The first three factors mentioned above is that most can not be controlled. But the fourth factor is aging simply can not be controlled, because the chronological age of the person continues to grow. However, the age of the body can be restored. One way is to conduct a comprehensive hormone therapy.
The fifth factor is smoking is a factor that I gave special attention. According to John Hopkins, smoking is a risk factor for pancreatic cancer, and as we know, the consumption of cigarettes in this country is huge. It should be a concern for all communities in Indonesia, that due to smoking is more than just lung cancer.
Premature deaths resulting from smoking is to worry about. Premature death means the loss of valuable talent needed a very expensive companies, agencies, organizations in this country to move forward.
The sixth factor is diabetic. Pancreatic cancer patients, 10-20 percent were diabetics. Diabetes is a risk that can fakor in “managed” with a healthy lifestyle. Keywords diabetes is heredity, and lifestyle. Hereditary factors certainly can not be changed, but the lifestyle can always be modified.
Some risk factors for diabetes is the originator of an overdose of sugar that causes fatigue pancreas, and foods rich in fat, especially trans fats contained in the oil palm, and sold at various fast food. Consumption both in the “back up” by monosodium glutamate, aka MSG, which reinforces a sense.
However, if you want to trace a little, we need to think critically, what motivates people to become like the food, which ultimately lead to diabetes.
One is stress (suitable for the condition of Steve Jobs), whether it be work stress, stressful romantic relationships, financial stress. One solution is to actually find a solution to this stress, teach new healthy lifestyle. That is, who needs to be changed is mindsetnya, demonstrated a new way, and given examples of how to do it.
All companies, organizations, ionstansi, should make the training mindset healthy lifestyle changes. Because if negligent, could make an impact for the overall team strength, especially when the affected are in high positions such as executive Steve Jobs.
Either smoking or diabetes, to change lifestyle, it takes more than just an appeal. But the need of conditioning. Because it takes is a change in mindset. Changes in behavior, which has been heralded, will not give any results without changing the mindset. The change means changing the subconscious mindset that needs special techniques to do it. Not just an appeal. Should be standard procedure. Part of the obligation.
If the organization still wants changes to improve performance, it’s time to corporate health strategy to be one competitive advantage that is applied in the company. Changing the mindset, change the behavior so that change the outcome. Thus, we can reduce the risk of premature loss of talented people such as loss of Steve Jobs of Apple.
