This past week has seen 3 of our customers diagnosed with throat cancer. Seems arbitrary. In the sclerology clinic I see trachea congestion lines in almost every client though.

The throat (our trachea) is common to food and air – so everything we eat, drink and inhale has an impact on our throat. Smoking, even electronic cigarettes, inhaling drugs, fumes and poisons, alcohol and other dietary abuses are linked to elevated risk. Excessive and ongoing heartburn does not in itself cause cancer, but changes to the cells, called Barret’s Oesophagus, increase the risks.

Google tells us There is also a connection between throat cancer and certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).
