Over 12.7 million people around the world will learn they have cancer this year.

 

Nearly 60%… or 7.6 million people globally… will die from it.

 

Terrifying, isn’t it? And, in general, the rates continue to climb every year.

Cancer is now the second leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease.

 

The World Health Organization expects that, unless something is done, the global projected number of cancer-related deaths will rise 80% by the year 2030.

 

Are you at risk? I think you know the answer to that already.

 

Now find out which cancers you’re most at risk for… and more importantly, how to become a cancer survivor rather than a casualty if cancer ever touches your life.

 

Top 9 Most Common Cancers…
Statistics, Symptoms and Survival Rates

 

Here is a list of the most common cancers in the United States and the American Cancer Society’s predictions for patients this year. While death rates are lower than in countries without advanced medical care they’re still significantly high.

1.  Prostate Cancer — 241,740 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 28,170

 

Prostate cancer is more common in those of African American ethnicity. Aging men are at general risk for prostate cancer and should be screened regularly with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. Obesity and smoking also increase the risks. This is the second most lethal cancer in men.

 

The symptoms of an advanced stage prostate cancer are seen mostly in urination disruption and abnormalities, including the need to urinate frequently, and blood or pain with urination.

 

Over 90% of cases are discovered before the cancer can spread. The 5-year survival rate is nearly 100% for these cases.

 

2. Breast Cancer — 229,060 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 39,920

 

The major risks for breast cancer include being female, aging, weight gain, alcohol and use of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT).

 

Unfortunately, breast cancer tumors are most treatable when they are small and produce no symptoms.

 

That is why, according to the American Cancer Society, it is so important to have regular screenings, self-exams and mammograms. The larger the mass becomes, the more painful it will become.

 

The 5-year survival rate for women with localized breast cancer – that is, cancer that has not spread to other tissues – is up to 99%. For cases in which the cancer has spread, the rate falls to 84%.

 

3. Lung Cancer — 226,160 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 160,340

 

Lung cancer is by far the most lethal cancer. It accounts for 28% of all cancer-related deaths. Thankfully, it is only diagnosed in 14% of cancer patients.

 

Smoking cigarettes is the biggest risk factor for lung cancer. Symptoms include a persistent cough that may have blood in it, chest pain and reoccurring pneumonia or bronchitis.

 

The 5-year survival rate for lung cancer is only 16%.

4. Colorectal Cancer — 143,460 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 51,690

 

Risk factors for colorectal cancer include aging, obesity, alcohol use, smoking and a high consumption of red meat or processed meat.

 

Like breast cancer, early stage colorectal cancer does not present symptoms. Understandably, this is one of the most under-screened cancers – only 39% of patients are diagnosed at the early stage.

 

Advanced stage symptoms may present lower abdominal pain, cramping, anemia and rectal bleeding.

 

64% of colorectal cancer patients live for 5 years after diagnosis, and 58% live up to 10 years. When detected early, the 5-year survival rate is 90%.

5. Skin Cancer and Melanoma – 81,240 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 12,190

 

While genetics can influence your susceptibility to skin cancer, other factors such as an unusual amount of moles and a history of overexposure to the sun can also play a role in developing a melanoma.

 

The best way to detect skin cancer is to pay attention to changes in your skin. Unusual changes or new moles should be examined by a doctor.

 

Most cases of skin cancer can be cured easily if detected early. The 5-year rate of survival is 91% in localized cases.

 

6. Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) — 70,130 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 20,130

 

Lymphoma is essentially white blood cell cancer, wherein the B cells or T cells of the lymphatic system grow or change uncontrollably. The lymphatic system makes up the majority of our immune system.

 

Often, the cause of lymphoma is unknown. However, it is sometimes seen in aging patients who have had their immune system repressed, or in the presence of autoimmune disease.

Symptoms of lymphoma include swollen lymph nodes, itching, night sweats and unexplained weight loss.

 

The 5-year survival rate of NHL is 67%.

 

7. Bladder — 73,510 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 14,880

 

Cigarette smokers are four times more likely to develop bladder cancer than non-smokers. The most common symptom of a bladder growth is blood in the urine. There is currently no screening method for those at average risk.

 

50% of all cases are diagnosed when tumors are noninvasive. The 5-year survival rate for these cases is up to 97%. Cases with invasive tumors that have spread to a local region have a survival rate of 71%.

 

8. Kidney (Renal) Cancer — 64,770 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 13,570

 

The risk of kidney cancer is very strong if you smoke. 30% of cases can also be attributed to obesity. Hypertension and high blood pressure are also risk factors.

 

92% of kidney cancers are in the form of renal cell carcinoma, which develop in the kidney’s filtering microtubules that lead to the bladder.

 

Symptoms of a tumor include pain in the lower back or abdomen, blood in the urine, weight loss and swelling in the lower extremities.

 

The 5-year survival rate for renal cell carcinoma is 71%. However, when diagnosed at an early stage, the rate jumps up to 91%.

 

9. Thyroid — 56,460 estimated cases in 2012

 

Estimated deaths in 2012: 1,780

 

The most obvious symptom of thyroid cancer is a lump in the neck. Difficulty breathing or swallowing, swollen lymph nodes, and chronic throat pain are also signs of a growth.

 

Major risks for thyroid cancer are a family history and exposure to radiation.

 

The 5-year survival rate for thyroid cancer patients is 97% for cases that have spread to the region, but is nearly 100% for localized cases.

 

A “Simple” Cancer Solution

 

What’s your risk of cancer?

1 in 3 for women and 1 in 2 for men!

 

That’s the statistical likelihood that you will develop cancer at some point in your life.

 

But I don’t suggest you roll over and accept that you may get one of these common cancers.

 

I suggest you fight back and learn how to prevent cancer.

 

Research has shown that over 30% of cancer cases could have been prevented. But I maintain that nearly all cases can be prevented. (And I don’t buy in to genetics causing cancer, and neither should you.)

 

Consider these guidelines from Mayo Clinic on how to prevent cancer:

 

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Base your diet on fruits, vegetables and other foods from plant sources — such as whole grains and beans.

 

 

  • If you choose to drink alcohol, do so only in moderation.

 

  • Limit processed meats.

 

  • Stop Smoking

 

  • Avoid midday sun

 

  • Get immunized against Hepatitis B and Human papillomavirus (HPV)

 

  • Avoid unprotected sex and no sharing of needles

 

  • Get regular self-exams and screenings for various types of cancers — such as cancer of the skin, colon, cervix and breast

A cancerous cell is acidic. If your body is in a constant state of over-acidification, it becomes impossible for healthy cells to regenerate.

 

Cancer cells thrive in an overly acidic environment. By taking action to become more alkaline, you can make it more difficult for cancer cells to regenerate.

 

Eating an acid/alkaline balanced diet is the key to staying healthy. Understanding the pH of the foods that you eat is relative to the state of your body’s health.

 

The goal of the acid alkaline balance diet, also known as the alkaline diet and the alkaline ash diet, is to achieve an optimal balance between acid-forming and alkaline-forming foods.

 

The anti-cancer alkaline diet greatly reduces the strain on the body’s acid-detoxification systems.

 

Detailed information about this diet can be found in the anti-cancer alkaline diet book: The Acid Alkaline Balance Diet

Can This Natural Secret Really Fight Cancer Absolutely?

 

Can This Natural Secret Really Fight Cancer Absolutely? Pancreatic enzymes, which are a type of proteolytic enzyme, were first used to treat and fight cancer in 1902 by a Scottish scientist, John Beard. Read on to find out more.

There are actually more than 3,000 enzymes in your body, each with a specific function. You cannot survive without them, as enzymes act as catalysts for countless biological changes that take place in living organisms.

 

Some experts, such as Dr. Edward Howell, believe that you are born with a limited supply of enzyme energy, and if you don’t consume enough enzymes via your diet (in raw foods, for instance), your digestive system will become stressed and unable to properly break down your food. This could lead to a reduced availability of metabolic, i.e. proteolytic, enzymes, which he believed was at the root of most chronic health problems.

 

While it used to be thought (for more than 100 years) that enzymes consumed orally were not absorbed by your digestive tract or bloodstream, research has proven this to be wrong.

 

Orally consumed proteolytic enzymes can, and do, pass through your digestive tract and into your bloodstream for systemic effects, according to researchers, and this includes a potential role in fighting cancer.

 

Pancreatic enzymes, which are a type of proteolytic enzyme, were first used to treat and fight cancer in 1902 by a Scottish scientist, John Beard. German researchers later used them to treat and fight cancer, multiple sclerosis and viral infections, and some enzyme mixtures are still commonly used to treat cancer in several European countries, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).

 

Although ACS states that “available scientific evidence does not support claims that enzyme supplements are effective in treating cancer,” there is good reason for further study.

 

Have You Heard of Dr. Gonzalez or the Gerson Therapy?

 

Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, and today it is most well-known for its role in cancer. The Gerson Therapy is a multi-faceted approach involving dietary changes (organic and plant-based) and detoxification, but enzymes are at its foundation. In addition to “copious amounts of fresh, organic juices” that are consumed every day “providing your body with a super-dose of enzymes,” patients also receive a pancreatic enzyme supplement.

 

According to one study conducted by the Gerson Research Institute, when patients with melanoma, colorectal cancer, and ovarian cancer were treated with surgery and Gerson therapy [including systemic enzymes], survival rates were higher than would normally be expected …”

 

The Gerson Therapy is not the only ‘alternative’ cancer treatment that involves proteolytic enzymes. Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez also uses pancreatic enzymes to treat cancer patients, with research showing “an aggressive nutritional therapy with large doses of pancreatic enzymes led to significantly increased survival over what would normally be expected for patients with inoperable pancreatic adenocarcinoma [cancer].”

 

Separate research also suggests that people taking pancreatic enzyme supplements may have less severe side effects while undergoing radiation therapy compared to those taking a placebo. In the US, at least one enzyme preparation is currently being studied for use along with chemotherapy in cancer patients, according to ACS.

Proteolytic Enzymes Eat Up Scar Tissue for Lunch

 

Part of what makes proteolytic enzymes so beneficial is their ability to breakdown scar tissue in your body. What does this have to do with cancer?

 

Dr. William Wong, ND, PhD, explained:

 

“CA (cancer) cells are covered with fibrin (the same stuff scar tissue is made of). Then as the cells glom together to form tumors these growths themselves are armored with fibrin. This thick protective coating is designed to prevent the body’s own defenses (i.e. Natural Killer cells, White blood cells or Oxygen) from getting inside the cell or tumor to destroy it.

 

Would it not make sense to have something strip away the outer fibrous wall of CA so that whatever agents we are using as medicine, whether natural or otherwise, can actually get into the cell and do their job?”

Systemic enzymes eat away at scar tissue; it’s their ‘claim to fame,’ and perhaps the reason why many doctors in Europe use enzymes as part of their cancer treatment plans as a matter of course.

 

Proteolytic Enzymes Are One of Nature’s Most Powerful Inflammation Fighters

 

This is important, because chronic inflammation plays a well-established role in the growth and spread of cancer. It’s no coincidence that many chronic inflammatory diseases, including pancreatitis and Crohn’s disease, increase your cancer risk, too, as do inflammatory conditions like hepatitis B or C infection, which can cause liver cancer.

 

According to Cancer Research UK:

 

“… It’s clear that fledgling tumors hijack inflammation and use it to accelerate the progression towards full-blown cancer. As one of our own experts once commented, “If genetic damage is the match that lights the fire, inflammation may provide the fuel that feeds the flames.”

 

Here, too, systemic enzymes help, as they are powerful anti-inflammatories. And, systemic enzymes appear to stimulate your immune system, making them useful for both infectious and chronic diseases alike.

 

Researchers noted in Medical Hypotheses:

 

“Numerous publications reveal that oral proteolytic enzymes are able to stimulate directly the activity of immune competent cells as well as to increase efficiency of some of their products.”

 

Systemic enzymes are very safe with few, if any, side effects, which is why so many people use them for everything from general well-being to more serious issues like cancer.

 

Why It’s Important to Replenish Your Enzyme Supplies

 

Proteolytic enzymes are naturally produced in your pancreas, but your natural production declines with age; these inflammation-busters become largely depleted as you hit 40 and over.

 

In fact, a new-born baby has 100 times more enzymes than an elderly person, and even a 20-year-old has double the enzyme levels of a 70-year-old. If you have blood-clotting disorders, chronic fatigue, high cholesterol, obesity or other chronic health ailments, these could be signs that you’re already enzyme deficient.

 

If you don’t eat perfectly (including raw foods on a daily basis), the chances that your body is lacking in these crucial catalysts is even higher.

Fortunately, there is Heal-n-Soothe, the best systemic enzyme formula to replenish your body’s supply of vital enzymes.

 

Heal-n-Soothe®” not only gives you the healing power of systemic proteolytic enzymes but also other natural anti-inflammatories (some of which have their own anti-cancer effects). This includes:

 

  • Turmeric, which protects against multiple types of cancer and organ damage from conventional treatments.

 

  • Ginger, which has shown some ability to slow or prevent tumor growth in animal studies.

 

  • Boswellia, which has been shown to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells.

 

Heal-n-Soothe now has 2X MORE proteolytic enzymes than before … it’s new and improved, for maximum pain- and inflammation-fighting power! Find out more now.

Breast Cancer Prevention:Total Curve Promotes Breast Health

 

 

Find Out How Total Curve Can Also Help You To Lower Breast Cancer Risk

 

 

Every year many women die of breast cancer. It accounts for about 10% of all cancer deaths in women. Every year, breast cancer takes away the lives of over half a million women world-wide. This is almost one per cent of all deaths each year.

 

These are discouraging stats. They are made more discouraging when you consider that breast cancer is often preventable. While some cases are hereditary, more often than not, lifestyle, diet, exercise and other factors such as smoking and drinking can play a role in determining a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer.

 

Total Curve believes that the most important step that a woman can take in preventing breast cancer is to have a greater understanding of this issue. That is the purpose of this article. We think you would have agreed that knowledge is power, and with it comes the chance to save lives.

 

Breast cancer occurs most commonly in the breast’s milk ducts, or the lining that supplies the ducts with milk. Eighty per cent of breast cancers are discovered when the carrier discovers a lump on her breast.

 

Timing is crucial to a positive outcome. The earlier it is been detected, the higher will be the chances of survival. Treatments for breast cancer include hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

 

While genetics play a role in determining the likelihood of breast cancer, it is a minor cause, at five per cent. The most common cause of breast cancer, by far, is lifestyle. Excessive alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise, overweight and post-menopausal obese are leading causes of breast cancer in women.

 

Age is also a factor. The older a woman gets, the higher is her risk of developing breast cancer; age is a risk factor. Over 80% of all female breast cancers occur among women aged 50+ years (after menopause).

 

This makes it even more important to adopt healthy living habits when you are young. There are various healthy habits that you can cultivate for preventing breast cancer.

 

You can start by eating mushrooms and drinking green tea. A recent study of over 2,000 women suggests that women who regularly ate mushrooms had a 50% lower risk of breast cancer. When combined with green tea, the risk was lowered by 90%.

 

In fact, eating more vegetables especially brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts) can help in cutting down the risk of cancer. Studies show that women who consume one and a half servings of brassica vegetables every day have a 42% reduced risk of developing breast cancer.

 

Watch your weight, especially after menopause. A recent study concluded that an added weight of 22 pounds after menopause increased breast cancer risk by 18%.

 

Alcohol and second hand smoke are also leading causes of breast cancer. Studies have conclusively found a high relationship between heavy alcohol consumption and breast cancer. Second hand smoke, particularly in pre-menopause women, increased the likelihood of developing breast cancer later in life by an astounding 70%!

 

Total Curve can help you reduce your risk. We have added buckwheat and watercress into our Total Curve Daily Supplement because they are both proven to increase overall breast health in women. What is really encouraging is that new medical evidence suggests that watercress is a powerful inhibitor of breast cancer.

 

In a recent British study, scientists concluded that watercress interferes with a protein responsible for breast cancer. In fact, evidence from the study suggests that watercress simply ‘turns the breast cancer signal off’, stopping the cancer growth on the spot.

 

This is good news for women and another reason to let Total Curve 3-Step Breast Enhancement Therapy enhance your body with beautiful, natural and healthy breasts.
