Cancer disease is undoubtedly the plague of today due to the increase in its
incidence. The main reasons that make this disease so common are stress, malnutrition,
having habits such as alcohol and smoking, and working under unfavorable conditions.
Cancer is a disease that destroys blood cells in the body by weakening the immune
system. Therefore, it is necessary to keep the immune system strong to cope with this
disease. For this purpose, it is very important to take beta glucan support, which is one
of the biological response modifiers, into the body. In the treatment of many types of
cancer, such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer, the
immunotherapy method is used in addition to traditional chemotherapy treatment.
Many previous studies showed that beta glucan slows down cancer growth and
prevents cancer from spreading to other parts of the body
