Your body needs constant supply of antioxidants to destroy free radicals from stealing your good cells and turn them into bad cells.
Cancer starts with weakened cells caused by free radicals. Those are the unstable chemical “burglars” that steal from other molecules. Then the burglarized molecules turn into free radicals too, doing even more damage.
Strands of DNA sometimes get broken through your body’s natural processes. Your cells then send signals to your body to repair your DNA. If the response is deficient, or no help comes at all, those cells become vulnerable to cancer.
What happens today that did not happen in our native environment is that those breaks occur a lot more often. They’re caused by things like environmental pollutants and chemical ingredients in food. Our bodies haven’t adapted to the huge increase in these man-made toxins over a very short period.
Cancer isn’t a “normal” part of life. Toxins and chemicals are interfering with your natural ability to defend yourself.
The most important thing you can do is to strengthen your cells, so they’re more disease-resistant. And that means making sure your body has the energy and the nutrients to repair and maintain those cells.
How to prevent cancers?
The three most important nutrients you need to keep your cells strong are also the ones chronically deficient in today’s world. They are vitamin C, vitamin D and CoQ10.
1) Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that disarms damaging free radicals before they can attack healthy cells and stimulate tumor growth.
Most people think of vitamin C in terms of head colds and eating oranges. But vitamin C has an integral relationship with cancer prevention. It can even cause sudden cancer remission. And it all started with Dr. Pauling’s instrumental study…
In fact, Pauling and his colleague, Dr. Ewan Cameron, published their results in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
But vitamin C is not a drug, and Dr. Pauling did no surgery. All he did was feed people vitamin C both orally and intravenously. So scientists and doctors didn’t believe a word of it.
Pauling and Cameron repeated their study a year and a half later. They used many of the same original hundred people, since they were still alive. But they chose a new set of 1,000 control patients.
And the results got even better.
Vitamin C Proved to be Effective
• Eight of the 100 “terminal” patients were still alive after the second study was finished. Their mean survival time after the date of “untreatability” was more than three and a half years.
• Twenty-two of the 100 lived more than a year after they were told they were untreatable… only four of the 1,000 untreated patients did. Those 22 survived an average of two-and-a-half years after reaching the apparently terminal stage.
It's no surprise if you never heard this story. The modern medical industry that can only stay in business by selling you drugs and surgery doesn’t want you to know about it.
But cancer is a man-made disease, and because of that, we already have the cure.
In fact right now, there is a pandemic because of a deficiency of this one nutrient. Cancer is the biggest epidemic the world has ever known. And it can be directly linked to the fact that almost no one gets enough vitamin C.
That’s why it saved those cancer patients. And for the most part, it’s also the reason you don’t see cancer in animals as much as you do in people. Because every animal on the planet except people, primates, guinea pigs and fruit bats can make their own vitamin C.
In fact, it’s the reason guinea pigs are … well, used as guinea pigs.. They can easily be made sick because they don’t make their own vitamin C.
It’s a human weakness that we don’t make it. We need vitamin C to live, and we’re totally dependent on our diet to get it.
Here are some other studies the establishment doesn’t want you to see:
• Like the one Cameron did in 1984, which was refused for publication until 1991. In it, Cameron looked at records of over 1,800 incurable cancer patients, and found that those who received any kind of vitamin C supplementation lived twice as long as those who did not.
• And the study from 2006 by the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association. They looked at patients who opted for high-dose vitamin C therapy as their only cancer treatment.
• One woman had multiple lesions in her chest, and decided to get injections of 65g twice a week. After 8 months, her chest x-rays were normal.
• A man with a bladder tumor that had spread into his muscle had the tumor removed. In cases like his, the cancer usually returns in a short time. He opted for high-dose vitamin C injections monthly over four years. And nine years later, he was in good health with no spread of cancer.
• Another woman with lymph node cancer did get 5 weeks of radiation therapy, but refused chemotherapy. She had IV vitamin C therapy instead, and over a year later she was in normal health and had no clinical sign of lymphoma. She remains in normal health 10 years after the diagnosis.
• How about the study in 1997, published in the journal Prostate? Researchers found that vitamin C caused prostate cancer cells to die.
• There was also a study done by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in 2009. You can see the results in the chart below.
The study says plainly that an easily-attainable blood level of 2mM of vitamin C killed almost 100% of lymphoma cells in less than a day, and left normal cells alone.
But you won’t see this chart at your doctor’s office, or posted at your community’s hospital.
Because what the modern medical establishment does want you to see are the studies funded by drug companies that show very low doses of vitamin C don’t help cancer patients. Or the ones where patients with a rare colorectal cancer don’t benefit from high doses of orally administered vitamin C.
Why Drugs Companies Don't Want to Market Vitamin C
Because vitamin C is naturally occurring. If something occurs in nature, it can’t be patented. To patent something, you have to prove that you invented or created something exclusive or new.
If a drug company can’t patent a therapy, they can’t corner the market. Other companies are free to produce the same thing at a lower price. Competition drives down prices and profits far below what drug companies are used to.
And what they’re used to is the $11.4 billion Pfizer made in 2009 by selling you a statin drug like Lipitor.
So the big pharmaceutical companies tell you that nutrients are a waste of time.
In fact, that’s what they did for years with omega-3 fish oil… until a drug company found a way to patent a certain process to make it. And now we have an “FDA approved” omega-3 drug called Lovaza.
Thankfully, no one has made a drug out of vitamin C. But it’s more effective at keeping you healthy over the long term than any drug ever could be. And the best part is you don’t have to wait until you’re sick to start using vitamin C.
Stop Cell Damage and Avoid Cancer
Vitamin C works because it is an antioxidant. It disarms molecules called free radicals, which attack healthy cells. Vitamin C does this before the free radicals can induce oxidative damage to your cells, which stimulates tumor growth.
Scientists have known this since the 1980s, but today, we know even more about oxidative damage.
What we now know is that the protective caps on the ends of your DNA, called telomeres, are very sensitive to oxidation. The shorter your telomeres, the older your cells act and the more susceptible they are to becoming cancerous.
Vitamin C Can Slow Down Aging and Protect Your DNA
The new, exciting discovery about vitamin C is that it’s very effective at slowing down this aging process.
• A Japanese study tested vitamin C’s effect on telomeres. It was found that raising the level of vitamin C in the cells could slow down the shortening of telomeres up to 62%.
• Another study found that skin cells treated with vitamin C kept their young firm shape because it slowed shortening of the cell DNA’s telomeres. The telomeres also suffered less damage in the presence of vitamin C.
How Much Vitamin C Should You Get Every Day
The RDA doesn’t mean “don’t take more than this amount.” The RDA is strictly meant to prevent a severe dietary deficiency of a nutrient.
It is not a recommendation for how much of a nutrient you need so you can function at your best.
For example, the RDA of vitamin C for adults is 90 mg for men and 75 mg for women. This is not enough to slow telomere shortening or prevent cancer.
Remember that almost all animals make their own vitamin C? Well, based on what they produce, your body would make between 3,000 mg and 10,000 mg a day if it could – over 100 times more than the RDA
Dr. Pauling himself took between 12,000 and 18,000 mg a day, and lived to the ripe old age of 93.
Where to Find Vitamin C in Your Foods
Here are three ways to get all the vitamin C you need to feel your best:
• Dark, leafy vegetables, bell peppers all have lots of vitamin C. And, peppers are the kings of vegetable vitamin C. Red and green chili peppers have 242 mg per 100 grams, and
• In terms of fruits, black currants, papaya and guava all have vitamin C. Guava has 228 mg while oranges and strawberries by contrast, have about 60 mg per 100 grams.
• The king of all fruits as far as vitamin C goes is the acerola cherry. They have 1,678 mg per 100 grams – over 20 times the vitamin C of oranges!
• Thyme and parsley are the best sources of vitamin C. You can add them to any soup, stew or salad. Also, a little-known source of vitamin C is peppermint leaves. You can make peppermint tea – just make sure to cover the mug while brewing to keep in the oils.
• Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is regularly available in stores. An effective dose of vitamin C if you’re currently healthy is 1,500 mg, twice a day.
Pregnant women should get at least 6,000 mg per day. But in times of stress or sickness, you can take up to 20,000 mg. A powdered form may be more convenient for larger doses.
A new, exciting discovery about vitamin C is that it’s very effective at defending you against this process and protecting your DNA
• Watercress is also a little-known but rich source of vitamin C.
If you prefer supplement, try to get 1,500 mg twice a day if you’re healthy.
If you’re under a lot of stress, or sick, you can take as much as 20,000 mg per day.
2) Vitamin D:
Low Vitamin D levels are strongly linked to cancer. A report out of a university in Nebraska showed that vitamin D has the potential to lower the risk of all cancers in women by 77 percent.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego found you can lower your risk of breast cancer by 50 percent, and colon cancer by more than 65 percent, simply by boosting your vitamin D levels through sunlight, diet or supplements.
A Harvard-sponsored report published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute revealed that when men raise their vitamin D intake, they can lower their overall risk of cancer death by 29 percent, drop rates of “digestive tract” cancers by 43 percent (throat, stomach and colon), and reduce death rates from these cancers by 45 percent.
The best source of vitamin D is sunshine. Your skin produces vitamin D when the sun’s rays shine on you. Ten to 20 minutes of sun get’s you a full day’s supply of it. To supplement with vitamin D, make sure you take the natural form, D3. You need at least 2,000 IU per day.
CoQ10 is one of the most overlooked nutrients. It’s the fuel your cells use to make energy. That means it’s the primary source of energy for the immune cells that get suppressed by cancer. CoQ10 restores their ability to fight back and attack cancer cells. Like vitamin C, it’s also a powerful antioxidant that blocks free radicals from damaging your DNA.
Besides helping to prevent cancer, there are many clinical trials in which CoQ10 helps heal people who already have cancer. In one, researchers in Denmark studied a group of breast cancer patients. They gave them CoQ10, plus a combination of other antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
The entire group had a partial remission of the cancer. Two of the patients received larger doses of CoQ10 (390 mg) and their tumors disappeared. From here you can see that it is a very powerful and important nutrient against cancer.
The best way to get CoQ10 is by eating red meat and organ meats like the liver from grass-fed, not grain-fed animals. Grain-fed meat is not a good source of CoQ10 because the grain-fed animals are feed with corn that makes them fat and pump with antibiotics to keep them from getting sick.
Also, the problem in eating a lot of organ meat is that they tend to contain the most toxins and other pollutants. The best way to make sure you’re getting enough CoQ10 is to take a supplement.
You need a minimum of 50 mg of the ubiquinol form of CoQ10 a day. If you have high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol, gingivitis, age related memory loss, chronic fatigue or are a vegetarian, increase your dose to 100 mg of ubiquinol per day.
Furthermore, the cows are injected with synthetic growth hormone to make them grow faster. Another factor is they are raised in an unhumane condition.
Say No to Chemotherapy
More than half of all people diagnosed with cancer receive chemo. The treatment uses chemical agents to stop cancer cells from growing. The problem is... it kills healthy cells too.
Your doctor will probably recommend chemotherapy too. But that may kill you. Chemo is poisonous. It destroys good cells along with the bad. It zaps your energy... causes you to lose your hair... and it makes you susceptible to bleeding and infections.
Recent studies reveal that it does more harm than good. You could suffer from long-term side effects for decades. That's if you even survive the treatments.
Chemo attacks cells that divide quickly. That includes those in your bone marrow, the lining of your mouth and intestines, and hair follicles. It doesn't discriminate.
It ruthlessly weakens the immune system. Often to the point of no return. It even reduces the ability to digest food. So you are unable to absorb the nutrients critical for recovery. When you hear that someone died as a result of "complications from cancer treatment," that most likely means they were killed by chemotherapy.
Chemo offers false hope. Simultaneously, it creates more problems. And the cost of chemo – now upward of $10,000 – continues to skyrocket.
Millions have died along the way. You may have heard the stories about the fates of Patrick Swayze, Farrah Fawcett, Peter Jennings, and Tony Snow.
What do these celebrities have in common? They all had cancer. All received chemotherapy. And soon... they all died. It's no coincidence. Chemo kills.
Many scientists only focus on diagnosis and treatment. That makes us more dependent on deadly drugs.
The majority of patients receive palliative treatment where the aim is to alleviate symptoms of cancer with the minimum of side effects, and yet, 43 percent of all patients suffered significant treatment-related toxicity.
There are Other Alternatives
Dr. Mazurak is a nutrition and metabolism professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. She's also led cancer studies for the University of Guelph in Ontario. And she's published dozens of related studies in peer-reviewed journals. Her research team focuses on the relationship between nutrients and cancer.
Her latest study was published in Cancer, the journal of the American Cancer Society. It's convinced her that everyone on chemo should be taking this supplement.
1) The supplement is fish oil. And Dr. Mazurak isn't the only one who believes in its benefits.
Dr. Lona Sandon is a professor of clinical nutrition at the University of Texas. She's a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. After studying Dr. Mazurak's findings, she thinks they offer real hope.
Patients waste away from chemo. It devours their energy. They lose weight and muscle mass. They're in no condition to survive the treatment... let alone fight the disease.
Dr. Sandon says that supplementing with fish oil can even the score. For starters, it helps prevent cancer-related malnutrition. That's a big concern with patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Other similar studies have looked at omega-3 and muscle preservation and have also suggested that fish oil can act to prevent inflammation caused by both disease and hardcore medications, like chemotherapy agents.
Dr. Mazurak followed 40 newly diagnosed lung cancer patients undergoing the first rounds of chemotherapy. Sixteen of those patients were given fish oil. The other 24 received no supplements.
Their weight and blood levels were monitored. Muscle and fat were measured using computed tomography (CT) imaging.
After 10 weeks, 70 percent of the patients taking fish oil had gained healthy muscle mass. Those with the highest levels of fish oil in their blood had the greatest gains. They were also the quickest to recover from a chemo session.
At the same time, 70 percent of those not taking the fish oil had lost significant muscle mass. That group was also much slower to recover from their chemo sessions.
Dr. Mazurak believes these results can be attributed to the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil.
Fish oil has both EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. The most important one is EPA – the type of omega-3 that controls inflammation.
Inflammation plays a major role in disease. It's your body's natural response to infection. It's linked to everything from heart attacks to cancer. And cancer is a very extreme infection.
Chronic inflammation can also result from chemical exposure – like chemo.
Inflammation releases chemicals to fight infection. But it can also promote tumor development. It can go from "friend" to enemy in an instant.
The EPA omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil also boost your immune system... and give your body a chance to focus on recovery.
EPA is found in the flesh of coldwater fish. For example:
• halibut, and
Not a fish lover? You can get a quality fish oil supplement in pill form from your local health food store. Just make sure it's the real thing, not synthetic because synthetic is artificial, not genuine.
2) Practice prevention. It's the best way to avoid cancer. So eat foods like broccoli, mustard seeds, horseradish, and wasabi. Studies have indicated there's a link between these foods and cancer cell death.
3) Antioxidants boost your immune system. They help you avoid and fight cancer. Use colors as a guide. Eat purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow foods. The important categories are beta-carotene, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.
