OCTOBER & NOVEMBER ARE CANCER AWARENESS MONTHS
AND BY COINCIDENCE – SOME OF THE SAME NUTRIENTS I RECOMMEND FOR HANGOVER PREVENTION ARE RECOMMENDED FOR CANCER PREVENTION
Here is a direct quote by Dr Teitelbaum, Medical Director of The Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers in Kona, HI.
“A variety of different nutrients are crucial for your body to fight cancer, but the problem is that the American diet too often lacks what we need to stay in top health. “It’s the first time in history that we have calorie malnutrition,” That means calories aren’t in short supply, but nutrients can be. You can fill in the gaps with dietary supplements.”
So, as mentioned in my blogs:
A few of these important nutrients are:
- CURCUMIN: Anti-inflammatory
Teitelbaum goes on to say Curcumin has killed cancer cells in the laboratory, shrunk tumors in animals, and helped prevent several forms of cancer from developing in animal studies. “Curcumin is a pretty remarkable herb,” Teitelbaum says. There are more than 1,000 studies showing that it’s effective for cancer
2. GLUTATHIONE: The Ultimate Anti-Oxidant (& hangover preventor)
A quote from Gaynor Integrative Oncology on Glutathione says:
Studies have shown that glutathione attacks cancer cells and even reduces the adverse effects of other cancer treatments. A study published in the International Journal of Cancer showed the effects of exogenous glutathione in ovarian cancer cells.¹ The study’s findings show that extracellular glutathione triggers DNA damage in cancer cells resulting in apoptosis (cell death). http://gaynoroncology.com/glutathione-and-cancer-cell-death/
Another great article on glutathione:
- METHYLATION (which is driven by B vitamins)
A study on Methylation (B vitamins) and cancer in NCBI says:
Aberrant Methylation of DNA (global hypomethylation accompanied by region-specific hypermethylation) is frequently found in tumor cells.
- MILK THISTLE
Although I talk about Milk Thistle for Hangover Prevention and toxicity in general,
A study from Intergrative Oncology says:
Milk thistle seeds contain a powerful phytonutrient called, silymarin, which is increasingly being recognized for its’ wide-range of anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and protective effects against various drugs and toxins.
Cheers and To Your Health!
