Up to 90% of All Types of Cancers Can Be Preventable (or Treatable) If You Do This!


The American Cancer Society reports that each year 12.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer and 7.6 million people die from the disease. However, most cancer deaths can be prevented and up to one third can be cured if diagnosed and treated early. Although the American Cancer Society states that 30 - 40 percent of cancer deaths can be prevented, some medical experts estimate it can be as high as 90 percent -- if you do this.

What you need to do

There are many life choices you can make that will significantly increase cancer prevention and death. One of the key choices is your diet, yes, what you eat. According to Dr. Mercola, who authors an online web site with the latest information on health issues, most cancers are rooted in metabolic and mitochondrial dysfunction. What does this mean?

Metabolism is the chemical process your body uses to transform the food you eat into the fuel that keeps you alive. Mitochondria are that part of each cell responsible for creating more than 90 percent of the energy needed by the body to sustain life and support growth. Together, they are responsible for brain, heart, liver, skeletal muscles, kidney and the endocrine and respiratory systems.

Rooted in poor diet choices

Most cancers are rooted in poor diet choices which affect both the metabolism and mitochondria. In addition, toxic lifestyle choices like smoking will also increase your chances of developing cancer. This is why most cancers are both preventable or treatable.

One key life choice, according to Dr. Mercola, is to develop a ketogenic diet. This means eating the right kinds of foods - like foods high in healthy fats, along with moderate protein and low net carbs (or non-fiber carbs). These can be found in foods such as seeds, nuts, butter, olives, avocado, coconut oil, raw cacao or cacao butter.
