Imagine that a new pharmaceutical drug is released to the public amidst a flood of news reports and television advertising. This pill has been has been clinically and conclusively proven to dramatically reduce the risk of breast cancer by as much as 80%. Do you think this would be a popular prescription?

It may come as a surprise to know that healthy lifestyle habits and diet have been clinically shown in a significant number of studies to substantially reduce the risk of breast and other cancers that plague our modern society. A vast majority of the fund-raising activities for the pink ribbon organizations are rooted in good people with noble intentions, however, with over a billion dollars spent on the “cure”, little progress has been made in this fight.

In today’s SuperHealth Podcast, we turn our attention from awareness to prevention. Join us as we explore key factors that increase women’s risk and those factors that decrease the risk of breast cancer. This is vital information you are not likely to hear from conventional medicine.

Take control of your health today.

Here’s to your Super Health!

Welcome to Living Fuel TV. I’m KC Craichy, bringing you an important health alert.

Imagine if there was a lethal disease, with minimal things that you can do to greatly minimize your risk; but no one’s telling you about it. Well to me, awareness is knowing the little things to minimize your risk, not finding out you have a problem and figuring out how to deal with it at that point. So, today is about minimizing your risk. So, to cut through the sea of pink, today we’re gonna talk about a few things that increase your risk of breast cancer, and a few things that reduce your risk of breast cancer, and quite dramatically, I might add.

So, the things that increase your risk of breast cancer, and obviously I’m speaking to the ladies, are medical radiation, is a big one. CT scans, CAT scans, PET scans, mammography, even. We talk about thermography and MRI and ultrasound being a great alternatives to mammography. We did a show even recently about mammography and how that does have an increase risk and the expert panels change the recommendation from every year after 40 to every other year after 50. They did that for a reason. There’s a lifetime load of radiation, and these tests can actually aggravate and agitate cancer cells and make them more aggressive. So watch that show. Don’t just send me emails telling me how it saved your life or whatever, because there are instances where that has happened.

This is a big deal, but there are things we need to look at along the way. Synthetic hormones. If you are doing hormone replacement therapy and they’re giving you a drug, a synthetic drug. And you know it’s synthetic, usually. It’ll say progestin instead progesterone. The hormone is progesterone or estrogen or testosterone, those are the hormones and those are the names of compounded hormones which are the only ones one should consider. Oral contraceptives increase the risk of breast cancer. Alcohol increases the risk. Junk foods, highly processed foods, fast foods, fried foods increase risk of breast cancer.

Eating non-organic foods and genetically modified foods, increases the risk of breast cancer. Sugar increases the risk of all kinds of cancers. And I always say minimize sweet drinks, because this is a source of maybe 15% of your calories you don’t even know about, mostly from sugars. So those are the things, some things that increase risk. Now, you’re wise and you want to make good decisions with your life. If you know you’re heading for a cliff and you have answers that keep you from heading to that cliff, then one should consider these things.

The things I’m about to tell you about, have been studied dramatically. These are not drugs. No one has a drug deficiency, and there have been no major breakthrough in breast cancer and since they’ve been trying to have a war against it. There have been incremental increases in benefits, but the things that we want to do are to keep you from having it in the first place. The number one thing that’s been studied over the last several years is fish oil. Fish oil reduces the risk of breast cancer in the studies, sometimes 50% and substantially higher percent of the time.

Another extraordinary powerful nutrient is vitamin D3, at higher doses. It’s actually been shown in numerous studies, I’ve been reading them in the last 24 hours, the studies about how people with breast cancer, particular the more aggressive forms of breast cancer, are the people with the lowest blood levels of vitamin D.

So, vitamin D3 is a very inexpensive nutrient. It’s a great protocol to start with 3000 to 5000 IU a day. In three months get tested to see what your levels are, but keep your levels above, say, 70000 milligrams per deciliter. So, we did more than one show on vitamin D. I invite you to come back to Living Fuel TV and watch the archive, extraordinarily powerful information, not just for breast cancer but or numerous things. Increase your broad spectrum antioxidants. Because oxidation is one of the foundational processes of this disease. So increase your broad spectrum antioxidant in your food, in your supplements, and resveratrol is one antioxidant that has recently been studied. That has significant benefits in the reduction of breast cancer risk. In spices like tumeric and cayenne and curry, these things are tremendous in reducing breast cancer risk. Then obviously, and it sounds obvious but it isn’t necessarily, lose weight. Make sure you’re at the optimal weight. Because too much weight is associated with breast cancer risk. Numerous studies, even on the cancer association sites themselves.

Balance your hormones, by this I mean find an expert. We always recommend Fishman Institute, Robert Fishman. Because he’s a consultant to doctors, and your doctor can go to him and help you balance your hormones. It’s really an important thing there. Then exercise. Everyone agrees that exercise is a way to minimize your risk. So I encourage you to do the research. We’re gonna put some of the research on livingfuel.com so you can check it out and read the studies on these various things. But if you look at the percentage decrease of risk of each of these things, and add them all up, it’s like a number well beyond 100%. I know that is mathematically oversimplification, but the point is there are genetic factors, there are radiation factors, there are all kinds of factors involved in breast cancer. But if lifestyle is 80+% of the risk, lifestyle and diet, then we ought to take some serious steps, particularly if we know that we’re at higher risk.

God bless you. I hope this helps, and have a great day.
