This One Nutrient Prevents Breast Cancer, Study Confirms

This One Nutrient Prevents Breast Cancer, Study Confirms
Breast cancer is one of the most aggressive forms of female cancers. In fact, 23% of invasive female cancers and 18% of all cancer deaths worldwide are from breast cancer. Breast cancer can also affects men.
Although research on breast cancer cure has taken several decades so far, it still hasn’t provided positive results. One study has found that anti-cancer medications based on curcuma can help in the treatment of breast cancer as they destroy cancer cells in the breast. The study, conducted by several specialists in this field including Ramesh C Gupta, Ph.D. from the University of Louisville, found that curcuma can considerably reduce tumor size.

Another study conducted by Washington State University scientists at Texas A&M has found that antioxidant compounds in peaches can prevent breast cancer cell growth and development. The study results showed that regular consumption of at least 3 peaches a day can significantly speed up recovery in breast cancer patients.

According to the researchers, these compounds can cut down the risk of metastasis, the primary killer in breast and many other cancers, when added to anti-cancer therapies. In laboratory tests, these powerful antioxidants have proved effective in destroying breast cancer cells while leaving the healthy cells intact. During the study, lab mice were given extracts from “Rich Lady” peaches, which killed even the most aggressive breast cancer cells.

In the study results, published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, the researchers explain that certain phenols in the fruit account for the amazing cancer-fighting properties of peaches. They also added that the extracts given to mice were five times more toxic on cancer cells as opposed to normal cells. Follow-up tests also confirmed that the compounds prevented cancer from growing in animals.

Unfortunately, breast cancer is constantly on the rise, and only last year 232,000 new breast cancer cases were registered in the US alone. It’s also been estimated that this life-threatening cancer is predominant in Western countries.

The fact that these natural phenolic compounds have shown great efficacy in reduction and prevention of breast cancer tumors is very promising for new and more effective treatment of this disease, especially because the chemotherapy agents that are currently used are very toxic and attack healthy cells along with cancerous ones.
As the trial only included lab animals, further research is needed to confirm these findings, in which case, peach extracts may really become a promising alternative for breast cancer treatment.

SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR KIDNEY STONES WITH ONLY HALF A CUP OF THIS DRINK

According to statistics, more than 26 million Americans are suffering from kidney disease, while 1 in every 3 adults is at serious risk of developing it. Medical experts claim that kidney disease kills more people in the USA than cancer or heart disease!

Kidney stones are small hard deposits inside your kidneys which can cause serious problems. They occur due to excessive meat consumption and lack of vegetables or insufficient water intake. Kidney stones are formed when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid than fluid. The standard medical treatment for the condition is potassium citrate. According to a recent study, lemons have an incredible ability to melt and reduce kidney stones, which is why they recommend the popular Lemonade therapy.
