For more than 40 years, the war on cancer has been waged in utter ignorance. It’s no secret that we are not winning the war on cancer because it continues to be the leading killer in the United States and most of the developed world.
Cancer was once a rare disease…
Based on research on human remains from 5,300 BC to the mid-19th century, we know that cancer was a rather rare disease.
This is no longer the case – in 2012, more than 1.6 million new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and more than 1,500 people will die from it every day. Cancer is now responsible for one in four deaths in the United States.
What may surprise you is that even the American Cancer Society says that about one-third of cancer-related deaths could be prevented by some lifestyle changes because these deaths are associated with being overweight, lack of physical activity and unhealthy food (which does not take into account smoking-related cancer at all). In fact, the American Cancer Society says Americans could realistically halve cancer-related deaths by simply making a few easy lifestyle changes as follows:
Include more exercise in your daily routine
Stop smoking today
Get regular checkups and screening for cancer
Top 8 Cancer Prevention Tips
It is reassuring that even conservative researchers already agree that simple lifestyle changes lead to more than a 50 percent reduction in morbidity, but why stop there?
I believe that you can PRACTICALLY ELIMINATE your cancer risk if you follow risk reduction strategies that have not yet been “proven” officially by conservative researchers.
I believe that the majority of all cancers could be prevented by simply applying the healthy lifestyle contained in the recommendations below.
- Avoid sugar, especially fructose
All forms of sugar are harmful to health in general and promote cancer. However, fructose is obviously one of the most harmful forms of sugar and should be avoided as much as possible.
- Optimize your vitamin D intake
Vitamin D affects virtually every cell in the body and is one of the most powerful anti-cancer agents in nature. Vitamin D is actually able to enter cancer cells and trigger their apoptosis (their cell death). If you have cancer, your vitamin D level should be between 70 and 100 ng / ml. Vitamin D works synergistically with any cancer treatment that is known to me, without adverse effects.
- Exercise regularly
There are many studies currently showing a very powerful effect of physical activity on dramatically reducing the risk of cancer. It most likely achieves this by optimizing insulin and leptin signaling.
- Avoid unfermented soy products
Unfermented soy contains a large amount of plant estrogens or phytoestrogens, also known as isoflavones. In some studies, soy has been shown to act simultaneously with human estrogen and increase the proliferation of breast cells, which increases the likelihood of mutations and cancer cells.
- Improve the sensitivity of your insulin receptors
The best way to do this is to avoid sugar and almost all cereals, even organic ones, as if you were one of two or three overweight people because they probably worsen your insulin and leptin signaling.
- Maintain a healthy weight
This will happen naturally when you start eating the right foods and exercising. It is important to get rid of excess fat in your body because fat produces estrogen.
- Drink a liter of organic green vegetable juice a day
Indeed, making juices is an incredibly fun, easy and healthy way to lose unwanted weight without any struggle or deprivation. You will not lose anything if you make green juices a regular part of your lifestyle. For starters, here’s a delicious and easy juice to start losing weight:
- Get very high quality animal omega-3 fats such as krill oil
Omega-3 deficiency is a common major factor in cancer, and because most cancers have an inflammatory component, over-regulation of cox-2 (Cox-2) enzyme activity, omega-3 fats – especially eicosapentaenoic acid – will immediately prevent of the inflammatory process.
