In 2015 it has been estimated that the number of newly diagnosed women with breast cancer will reach 231,840, while the number of newly diagnosed men will be 2,350 solely in the U.S. Given these frightening numbers, people try their best to find ways to prevent breast cancer.
One of the ways is to be careful with the products you use every day. According to a 2012 study, parabens was found in 99% 160 of tissue samples collected from 40 different mastectomies. These chemicals are usually contained in deodorants, cosmetics and sunscreen that act as a preservative.
Many researches and studies have been and still are conducted in order to find natural ways to combat cancer without the nasty side effects of chemotherapy. A team of researchers from LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans created a super cocktail made of six compounds found in vegetables, fruits, spices and plant roots that killed 100 percent of sampled breast cancer cells.
The team discovered that a blend of curcumin, isoflavone from soybeans, Indo-3-carbinol from cruciferous plants, C-phycocyanin from spirulina, resveratrol from grapes and quercetin from tea is able to suppress breast cancer cell growth by more than 80 percent. This blend also inhibited migration and invasion, and caused cell cycle arrest leading to the death of 100 percent of breast cancer cells.
Furthermore, our everyday diet and lifestyle has a great impact on our health. Even in cases where patients went for conventional treatments, healthy diets can minimize side effects and even boost the effectiveness of conventional cancer therapies.
There are many people who can confirm that it is possible to heal the body the natural way with healthy diets, exercise, supplements, essential oils, acupuncture, and other alternatives to help boost your body’s immune system.
