  • Give your liver the nutrition it needs

In a shocking turn of events, death rates for liver cancer increased an astonishing 43% in just 16 years – from 2000 to 2016. Considering that the majority of other cancers have remained relatively stable over the same period, this is extremely disturbing!

Now, there are many well-known contributors to the development of liver cancer. These include excess alcohol consumption, hepatitis C infection and diabetes.

But have these factors gotten so out of hand that they, alone, can account for this steep rise? Or is there another contributing factor that is often overlooked? Continue reading

  • Is there cancer in your coffee?
  • 4 major health benefits associated with a few cups of java each day
  • The best and worst coffees for you

Thanks to a recent California lawsuit, acrylamide levels in coffee are big news these days. Suddenly, everyone is concerned that they’ll die of cancer the next time they drink a cup of java from Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts.

If you’re not familiar with acrylamide, it’s a pretty nasty compound that is generated when certain foods are cooked at high temperatures. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies it as a probable human carcinogen and neurotoxin.

But here’s the thing. Coffee is not the only source of acrylamide. Nor is it the highest dietary source of this chemical compound. Continue reading

  • Stop cancer before it starts
  • Asian spice kills cancer cells
  • 2 more spices to up your odds against cancer

If you’re counting on medical science to protect you against cancer, you’re on the wrong track.

Sure. Over the years we’ve gotten much better at increasing survivorship of patients who are stricken with this deadly disease. However, we’re still no closer to developing a drug to cure it. And there is no vaccine or medication that helps prevent it.

In the meantime, the majority of cancers are caused by lifestyle factors. In fact, only about 5% of cancers are hereditary. This means your best bet at side-stepping cancer is to avoid it in the first place. Continue reading

  • Most cancers aren’t hereditary
  • Eat your way to a cancer-free life

There’s no doubt about it. A lot of the diseases we associate with aging are frightening. But, by far, the idea of developing cancer is one of the most disturbing. It can be deadly, and there simply isn’t a cure for it.

Now, you might think that if there’s a history of cancer in your family it makes you a prime candidate.

That isn’t true. In fact, only a small number of cancers – about 5% to 10% – are directly attributed to genetics. The remaining 90-95% is rooted in the way you live your life. Continue reading
