Lung Cancer in

China

Talley, Carolina Torres
History
China is one of the world's four ancient civilizations; here
we give a concise overview of more than 5000 years of
Chinese history, including the Great Wall and the four great
inventions of ancient China.
The written history of China can be said to date back to the
Shang Dynasty (16001046 BC), over 3,000 years ago.
The first dynasty was founded in the 21st century B.C., and
China was first unified in 221 B.C. by Qin Shihuang -
Owner of The Terracotta Army.
January 26, 2016A new report estimates there
were 4.3 million new cancer cases and more than
2.8 million cancer deaths in China in 2015, with
lung cancer the most common cancer and the
leading cause of cancer death in China.
Common cancer in china
and why its happening
"At night if you use a torch, you can see it best, the
air is full of small particles, if you work indoors
there's less chance of getting cancer," he said.
Almost 22 percent of global new cancer cases and
close to 27 percent of global cancer deaths occur in
China, wrote the researchers.
Cancer has been the leading cause of death in China
since 2010, with lung cancer causing the most
deaths.
With the increase in air pollution over the last
decade, lung cancer has increased 50 per cent in
Beijing.
Lung cancer is happening in china because of all the
air pollution let out from factories
Background Information
Last year, more than four million people were diagnosed
with lung cancer disease and three million died from it.
Research from the American Cancer Journal of Clinicians
showed that: They spoke to a man who wants to remain
unidentified. The man had said his wife had been
diagnosed with lung cancer and that he was sure of
what caused it. He said, "The reason is the work
environment and the air pollution, and because she had
no cover. My wife was exposed to chronic air pollution
when she worked on the regional railways.
But the most dramatic increases have been in the coal
and steel producing provinces.
They were a couple that comes from the coal-producing
province of Shanxi.
Manmade
Lung cancer is due to the air pollution caused
by coal factories, coal producing. Lung cancer
is also due to smoking cigarettes constantly
every day. (drugs) some scientists also think
that radioactive gas causes 3 to 14 percent of
lung cancer.
Lung cancer symptoms
The early symptoms of lung cancer may be a slight cough
or shortness of breath, depending on which part of the lung
is affected. As the cancer develops, these symptoms may
become more severe or intense. Like many other types of
cancer, lung cancer , may also cause systemic symptoms,
like a loss of appetite or general fatigue. In the picture
below it shows 10 signs and symptoms of lung cancer:
How its being treated and
who are those majoraly
affected?
In the current study, the authors review the biomarker features of lung
cancer in the Chinese population. In addition, they discuss issues that
require improvement for the production of novel drugs and provide
future directions for development in China
Chemotherapy is used for lung cancer patients which kills growing
cancer cells. Chemotherapy is usually given by injection and,
depending on the stage of cancer, it can be prescribed with or without
surgery.
KEYTRUDA is a prescription medicine used to treat a kind of lung
cancer called nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). KEYTRUDA may be
used when your lung cancer has spread and, the Tests are positive and,
you have not received chemotherapy to treat your advanced NSCLC
and your tumor does not have an abnormal "EGFR" or "ALK" gene* or
you have received chemotherapy that contains platinum to treat your
advanced NSCLC, and it did not work and if your tumor has an
abnormal "EGFR" or "ALK" gene,* you have also received an EGFR or
ALK inhibitor medicine and it did not work or is no longer working
Lung cancer rates are consistently higher among men than women and
are mainly caused from cigarette smoking
How do you want to help?
We want to help by convincing the factories that
produce coal to use In house air filtration system
If they refuse to use in house air filtration system,
then we would like to consider to shut down the
coal producing factories
For cigarette smoking, we would like to convince
and show people how much damage is being done
to their lungs
We want to pass on this message by creating a
website and sharing the consequences to their
actions
INVESTIGATING THE WORLD

We investigated the world by researching


background information on lung cancer in
china. We used evidence to support our
information. In china there is lots of air
pollution caused by smoking and coal
factories, so people have to wear masks.
RECOGNIZE AND WEIGHING
PERSPECTIVES
We recognized and weighed perspectives by
gathering information from different cites and
combing them to form our own perspective of
lung cancer in china.
COMMUNICATE IDEAS

We communicated ideas by creating a power


point and a poster board With information and
data about lung cancer to share with the
class.
TAKE ACTION

We want to take action by sharing with others


to create more visual ideas to help those with
lung cancer and prevent those from getting
lung cancer
