Cancer is the disease Americans fear most, and understandably so since
it’s responsible for nearly one out of every four deaths in the US. Adding to
its stigma, cancer diagnosis and treatment are the moneymakers in this
industry – and also the focus of most government-funded cancer campaigns.
Comparatively little is done in the way of prevention education, leaving
many feeling powerless against this potentially deadly disease – as though
all you can do is cross your fingers and hope you don’t become one of the
quickly growing cancer statistics. What a relief it should be to learn that
prevention strategies not only exist, but also are remarkably effective at
lowering your risk of most types of cancer.
Cancer Prevention: 10 Top Tips
“More than half of all cancer deaths could be prevented by making
healthy choices like not smoking, staying at a healthy weight, eating right,
keeping active, and getting recommended screening tests.”
This quote is taken directly from the American Cancer Society, and it
should be eye-opening and empowering if you’re not yet aware that cancer
prevention starts, first and foremost, with you and, as the featured article
explains, your home.
1. Optimize Your Vitamin D
If you want to slash your risk of cancer, it's essential that you
spend adequate time in the sun or a safe tanning bed, or if that’s not
possible supplement with proper amounts of vitamin D3. It’s been definitively
proven using data from more than 100 countries that the higher the solar UVB,
the lower the incidence of 15 different types of cancer, including
Bladder Breast Cervical Colon Endometrial
Esophageal Gastric Lung Ovarian Pancreatic
Rectal Renal Vulvar Hodgkin's lymphoma Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
The most important factor is your vitamin D serum level. In order to help
prevent a wide variety of diseases and health ailments, including cancer,
your vitamin D level needs to be between 50 and 70 ng/ml year-round. Vitamin
D from sun exposure or a safe tanning bed is the BEST way to optimize your
vitamin D levels.
Just be cautious about the length of your exposure. You only need enough
exposure to have your skin turn the lightest shade of pink. Once you reach
this point your body will not make any additional vitamin D due to its self-
regulating mechanism. Any additional exposure will only cause harm and damage
to your skin.
If you’re taking oral vitamin D, you also need to make sure you’re taking
vitamin K2 as well, as K2 deficiency is actually what produces the symptoms
of vitamin D toxicity, which includes inappropriate calcification that can
lead to hardening of your arteries. To learn more, please see my previous
article: What You Need to Know About Vitamin K2, D and Calcium. If you take
oral vitamin D and have cancer, it would be very prudent to monitor your
vitamin D blood levels regularly.
2. Avoid Eating Excess Protein
Most of us eat far too much protein. Consider reducing your protein
levels to one gram per kilogram of lean body weight unless you are in
competitive athletics or are pregnant. It would be unusual for most adults to
need more than 100 grams of protein and most likely need close to half that
amount. This may come as a surprise, as we’ve been told for decades how
important protein is for your health, but the truth is that excessive protein
intake can have a great impact on cancer growth.
The mTOR pathway is short for mammalian target of rapamycin. This pathway
is ancient but relatively recently appreciated and has only been known for
less than 20 years. Odds are very high your doctor was never taught this in
medical school and isn't even aware of it. Many new cancer drugs are actually
being targeted to use this pathway. Drugs using this pathway have also been
given to animals to radically extend their lifespan. But you don't have to
use drugs to get this pathway to work for you.
You can “biohack” your body by restricting your protein intake and
replacing the decreased protein with healthy fats; this will provide
virtually identical benefits as these dangerous and expensive drugs.
For most people, reducing your protein levels to one gram per kilogram of
lean body weight means restricting protein intake from 35 to 75 grams.
Pregnant women and those working out extensively need about 25% more protein,
though. Further, when you reduce protein you need to replace it with other
calories, specifically high-quality fats such as avocados, butter, coconut
oil, olives, olive oil, nuts and eggs.
3. Eat Living Foods with Amazing Health Benefits
Sprouts are a “super” food that many overlook. In addition to their
nutritional profile, sprouts are also easy to grow on your own. I started
sprouting seeds in ball jars 10 to 15 years ago. A Care2 article published
last year6 listed 10 reasons for eating sprouts, including the following. You
can see my recent article that extols their benefits. I should be providing a
more comprehensive report in the near future.
Sprouts can contain up to 100 times more enzymes than raw fruits and
vegetables, allowing your body to extract more vitamins, minerals, amino
acids and essential fats from the foods you eat.
Both the quality of the protein and the fiber content of beans, nuts,
seeds and grains improves when sprouted.
The content of vitamins and essential fatty acids also increase
dramatically during the sprouting process. For example, depending on the
sprout, the nutrient content can increase as much as 30 times the original
value within just a few days of sprouting. Sunflower seed and pea sprouts
tend to top the list of all the seeds that you can sprout and are typically
each about 30 times more nutritious than organic vegetables you can even
harvest in your backyard garden.
During sprouting, minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, bind to
protein, making them more bioavailable.
Sprouts are the ultimate locally grown food, and can easily be grown
in your own kitchen, so you know exactly what you’re eating. And since
they’re very inexpensive, cost is no excuse for avoiding them.
4. Simplify Your Cleaning Supplies
My top list of cancer prevention strategies has always included reducing
your exposure to environmental toxins like household chemical cleaners. While
it is very difficult to prove that a person's exposure to household cleaners
over the course of 10, 20 or 30 years is what caused their cancer diagnosis,
it is well known that commonly used household chemicals do, in fact, cause
cancer, along with other serious health effects like reproductive and
developmental problems in developing children.
Research has found, for instance, that breast cancer risk is twice as
high among women who report the most use of cleaning products and air
fresheners, compared to those who rarely use such products. Mold and mildew
cleaners and air fresheners have shown the greatest correlation with breast
cancer. Some of the chemicals of greatest concern that you'll want to avoid
Synthetic musks Phthalates 1,4-diclorobenzene
Terpenes Benzene Styrene
Phenol Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) Formaldehyde
Petroleum solvents Butyl cellosolve Triclosan (antibacterial)
Fortunately, it’s simple to replace toxic commercial cleansers with safer
options. One of the best non-toxic disinfectants is plain soap and water. You
can use this for washing your hands, your body and for other household
cleaning. Another all-purpose cleaner that works great for kitchen counters,
cutting boards and bathrooms is 3% hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. You can
also keep your home very fresh and clean by making your own natural cleaning
products using items you probably already have around your home. Some more
tips for making simple and effective all-natural cleansers:
Use baking soda mixed with apple cider vinegar to clean drains and
bathtubs, or sprinkle baking soda along with a few drops of lavender oil or
tea tree oil (which have antibacterial qualities) as a simple scrub for your
bathroom or kitchen.
Vinegar can be used to clean almost anything in your home. Try it
mixed with liquid castile soap, essential oils and water to clean floors,
windows, bathrooms and kitchens. It can even be used as a natural fabric
Hydrogen peroxide is safer to use than chlorine bleach for
disinfecting and whitening.
Vodka is a disinfectant that can remove red wine stains, kill wasps
and bees and refresh upholstery (put it into a mister and simply spray on the
For a great video on how to use these ingredients and other tips for
cleaning your home without hazardous chemicals, please review the article How
to Keep Your Home Clean Naturally. The free eBook Toxic Free also has 70
recipes for a toxic-free home that are worth checking out.
5. Use Greener Beauty Products
When cleaning up your lifestyle you may be tempted to start with your
diet (which is a good place to start), but your personal care products are
also important to address. Putting chemicals on your skin is actually far
worse than ingesting them, because when you eat something everything must go
to your liver before entering your blood stream, providing your body an
opportunity to detoxify substances that could be harmful. When you put
chemicals on your skin however, they're absorbed straight into your
bloodstream without filtering of any kind, so the toxic chemicals from
toiletries and beauty products are largely going into your blood, lymphatic
system and then directly into your internal organs.
There are literally thousands of chemicals used in personal care
products, and only a tiny fraction of them have ever been tested for safety.
According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, nearly
900 of the chemicals used in cosmetics are known to be toxic. It's impossible
to list them all, but some of the most common culprits to avoid include:
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) Musks Mercury
Paraben 1,4-Dioxane Lead
Phthalates, including dibutyl phthalate (DBP),
dimethyl phthalate (DMP), diethyl phthalate (DEP)
Mineral Oil, Paraffin, Petrolatum
Nano particles Antibacterials Hydroquinone Formaldehyde
When it comes to personal care products, I like to use this rule -- if
you wouldn’t eat it, don't put it on your body. Ideally, you'll want to look
for the USDA's verified Organic seal. I also highly recommend using the
Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database, where you
can look up a wide variety of products and brands to find out what they're
really made of, and whether or not they're safe. You can also make your own
personal care products, using simple all-natural ingredients that many of you
may already have in your home Our Nourishing Roots has a recipe for a
watermelon face mask that you can try, and here are a few of my
All-natural moisturizers -- Pure emu oil is a great alternative to
facial- and body moisturizers and lotions, as is pure coconut oil. It’s a
fantastic moisturizer and a potent source of the beneficial fat lauric acid.
All-natural acne fighter -- Rubbing just a drop of oregano oil on a
breakout can speed up the healing and prevent unsightly scarring (remember to
wash your hands thoroughly afterward).
All-natural deodorant – Plain soap and water works fine. If you still
need further help then try a pinch of baking soda mixed into water as an
effective all-day deodorant.
