What do you want first? The good news or the bad?
The good news is, cancer deaths are declining. According to the American Cancer Society’s “Cancer Statistics, 2010” report, around 767,000 cancer deaths have been avoided since the 1990s.
The bad news? Cancer is still a big problem. American Cancer Society researchers estimate that some 569,490 people will die from cancer this year.
But there is also some better news. You can take positive action to drastically reduce your own cancer risk – without doctors, surgery, or expensive drugs.
Contributing Editor Starr Daubenmire has come up with a report all about the world’s strongest anti-cancer substance. It’s all-natural. It’s up to 1,000 times stronger than anything the medical or pharmaceutical industries have ever come up with. And if you make full use of it? You could cut your risk of cancer by 50%.
THB reader Clare S. said of Starr’s article, “I just want to thank you for letting me know the importance of [this substance]. I am lacking in this [substance] and I will endeavor to take it every single day now. My mother has cancer so I am so glad I read this article.”
“This is incredible and at the same time fantastic,” wrote Augustus. “This resource is free … and yet a lot of people die from various kinds of cancer. Thank you very much for this very important message.”
Peter W. thought Starr’s article “was very informative … just printed it for my friend who has prostrate cancer and just hope it helps him.”
It’s highly unlikely that you’ll hear about this anti-cancer substance from your doctor or anyone in the medical industry… So make sure you read Starr’s full article below.
And be sure to let us know what you think of it!
To your health,

Cut Your Risk of Any Cancer in Half – Starting Today!
By Starr Daubenmire, Contributing Editor
The mainstream medical establishment doesn’t want you to know this… because they make so much money by keeping you in the dark…
But you can cut your risk of contracting any form of cancer in half – right now – with the information in this article.
Cancer is caused by stress – biological, psychological, chemical and physical stress. In modern times the stress has increased geometrically because of pollution, artificial foods and other factors.
But eons ago Nature created an antidote to stress – a natural hormone that stimulates the body’s immune system. If you make full use of this natural defense, studies show you can cut your risk of cancer in half.
I am talking about the world’s strongest anti-cancer hormone. In terms of prevention, it is probably a thousand times stronger than any substance that the medical and drug industry has ever come up with.
One very important – but largely ignored – study found that that 30% of all cancer deaths – which amounts to 2 million world-wide and 200,000 in the U.S. – could be prevented each year with higher levels of this hormone.
In addition to that:
- One study followed 400 postmenopausal women for four years and found that the group that had sufficient levels of this hormone had a 60% lower rate of all forms of cancer.
- Another study of 900 men found that the group that lacked this hormone had a 50% higher risk of cancer of the prostate.
- A third study found that people who have a high level of this hormone are 40% less likely to develop colon cancer...
Would you like to know what this hormone is?
Then sit back because this may surprise you.
The world’s most powerful anti-cancer hormone turns out to be something quite common: Vitamin D!
Don’t be. This is a scientific truth that the medical establishment consistently refuses to disclose.
They have even beclouded this truth by mis-naming the hormone. They call it a vitamin but it is not a vitamin at all.
Vitamin D is a hormone that you can get in modest doses from food and supplements, but most effectively from the sun.
That’s right. The sun is Nature’s primary stimulus for the creation of Vitamin D.
I’ll bet you have never heard that before.
If you are like most people you’ve heard that the sun is a bad thing. You have been told that it is the main cause of skin cancer.
But that is absolutely false and dangerously misleading.
I will explain why that is true later in this essay. I will also explain how the sun can stimulate all the Vitamin D your body needs. Plus you’ll learn why the media has spooked you into believing that you should avoid the sun.
Moreover, I’ll tell you why you should NEVER use conventional sun blocks…not on yourself or your children.
This is a report you must read.
Why has this information been kept from you? Maybe it’s because the healing energy of the sun is free.
When a cure like this is free, nobody stands to make a profit but you. So it is understandable that Big Pharma, Big Medical and Big Government – all of whom make billions every year off cancer – don’t want you to know.
Vitamin D Has Been Vilified by the Sunscreen Industry
Before sun block became popular in the 1960s, people believed that the sun was good for you. And for good reason. Our bodies respond positively to a natural amount of exposure to the sun. It makes us feel warm. It seems to “bake” out aches and pains. It even makes us look healthy.
Too much exposure to the sun, however, has the opposite effect. It causes us pain and discomfort. It makes us wish we hadn’t stayed out in the sun so long.
Sun block was created to prevent sunburn. And because it was effective in doing so, it caught on. So strongly in fact that it soon became a billion dollar industry.
With all those millions in profits, sun block makers funded studies. And those studies show a positive correlation between repeated sunburns and two non-lethal forms of skin cancer: basal cell and squamous cancers.
But none of these studies proved that the sun was the leading culprit in basal cell and squamous cancers. And none of them detected any relationship between sunburn and melanoma, which is the one cancer that kills.
Melanoma often appears between the toes and in other areas of the body where “the sun never shines.” If the sun were the leading cause of skin cancer, how could that be?
The studies that were funded by the sun block companies never bothered to answer these questions. Instead they lobbied the government to spread the word that the best way to prevent all forms of skin cancer (including melanoma) was to use sun block. And so the myth was born!Here are a few facts that you should know about sun block and skin cancer:
Sunscreen blocks your production of vitamin D -A sunscreen with an SPF of 8 reduces your ability to produce vitamin D by more than 95 percent. A sunscreen with an SPF of 15 reduces vitamin D production by more than 99 percent.
Lifeguards in Australia have the lowest rates of melanoma – In the February 2005 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute a study confirmed that exposure to the sun reduces the risk of skin cancer. Additional studies have shown that lifeguards in Australia have the lowest rates of melanoma.
Sunscreen does not block all the rays of the sun – Most sunscreens block only the UVB rays that burn your skin. They allow you to stay in the sun for hours without burning, while your skin soaks up the highly penetrating UVA radiation.
Unfortunately, most people believe that sunburn protection equals skin cancer protection. Actual evidence suggests to the contrary – that excessive exposure to non-burning UVA rays not blocked by common sunscreens induces skin cancers including the deadly melanoma variety.
Sunscreen contains several carcinogenic substances, some of which are activated by the sun! – one of the most common ingredients in commercial sunscreens is PABA, which can produce genetic mutations that can lead to cancer. The very thing that sunscreen sellers claim to protect you from. Even more incredibly, PABA is mostly inert until it becomes illuminated. Exposure to sunlight causes it to become carcinogenic. After exposure to UV radiation in sunlight, PABA or padimate-O attacks and damages DNA.
Sunscreen contains chemicals that mimic estrogen in the body – A Swiss study published in 2001 in Environmental Health Perspectives found five chemicals commonly in sunscreens that behave like estrogen. These five xenoestrogens are:
1. Octyl-1. dimethyl-PABA (OD-PABA)
2. Benzophenone-3 (Bp-3)
3. Homosalate (HMS)
4. Octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)
5. 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC)
So the result of the anti-sun campaign is this: more than half a million cases of cancer occur each year – that could have been prevented – if only a moderate exposure to sunlight had been allowed to provide normal levels of vitamin D.
Sunscreens are the Enemy, Not the Sun!
Thanks to modern day lifestyles and anti-sun propaganda message, an estimated 1 billion people worldwide are now deficient in Vitamin D. The situation is epidemic.
Not only will sunscreens NOT protect you from skin cancer, they will INCREASE your chances of getting all forms of cancer, including breast cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer.
Optimal vitamin D levels are one of your best protections against any kind of cancer – and regular sun exposure (without sunscreen) is the best way to achieve it.
Protection by Design…
As a hormone, Vitamin D influences the entire body. Almost every type of human cell has receptors that respond to vitamin D. Which means your body is designed to make vitamin D from exposure to sunlight.
It doesn’t take a whole lot. Fifteen minutes a day or a half hour two or three times a week is enough exposure to create the Vitamin D that your body needs.
And as long as you listen to your body’s natural messages, you will never have to worry about getting too much sun. What happens is this: depending on the amount of stress you are under, you may need just 2000 units of Vitamin D or 20,000. You can’t tell how much you need by taking your pulse or using some other artificial device. But you can tell simply by noticing that your skin feels like it has had enough.
When that happens it means your body is telling you that it has made the amount of Vitamin D that you need. Just get out of the sun at that moment and you won’t get sun burned and your immune system will be operating at full tilt.
Because vitamin D is fat soluble, it can be stored in the fatty tissues of the body. (That’s another reason it isn’t really a vitamin. It can be produced and stored naturally by the body.) But if, for some reason, a person can’t get out in the sun, he can and should supplement his intake of Vitamin D with natural foods and supplements.
How “ultra-violet” stacks up…
According to a leading vitamin D researcher, Dr. William Grant, vitamin D deficiencies cause 5 to 6 times more cancer deaths than any cancers due to excessive sun exposure.
The sunlight produces two types of ultraviolet light: UV-A and UV-B.
UV-A has a longer wavelength. It is good for you. UV-B has a shorter wavelength and is bad.
Melanoma, the only type of skin cancer that can kill you, is caused by the longer wavelength ultraviolet A (UV-A).
UV-B rays stimulate Vitamin D and your immune system. They are the heroes of the cancer game. And the sun is the primary way your body gets UV-B rays.
Dr. Grant, a former NASA scientist, understood the benefit of UV-B waves. He knew that UV-B levels are measured geographically in the U.S. So he compared cancer maps with UV-B maps to see how levels of sun exposure related to cancer death rates.
What he found disproved the mythology that had been promoted for so many years by the sunscreen companies. His studies confirmed that the lower the sun exposure was, the higher the death rate was from common cancers. The final tally was this…
Premature cancer deaths due to vitamin D deficiency are 50-60,000 per year…compared to 9,800 who die of melanoma and skin cancer.
So a natural amount (15 to 30 minutes a day) of UV-B rays are healthy.
Getting the sunlight you need promotes the repair of damaged cells. This is important because damaged cells don’t repair themselves and don’t replicate. The more stress your body is subject too, the fewer healthy immune cells it has to fight cancer. Vitamin D reverses that process.
Vitamin D also helps prevent cancer cells from developing their own blood supply. This means it is harder for them to grow and spread. This suppresses metastasis.
The studies are clear about the benefits of Vitamin D and sunlight. But the government and mainstream medicine are not telling you what the studies have been saying. (Incidentally, the first study that showed the benefits of Vitamin D and sunlight dates back to an article on cancer mortality that was published in North America in 1941.)
So it’s not like the medical industry hasn’t known the facts. But they aren’t telling you. Is that because they are just plain stupid? Or might it have something to do with the billions of dollars that are made by sunscreen companies and skin doctors?
You don’t need to take a position on this question to benefit from the truth. Fear of the sun is nonsense. It is Nature’s best source of Vitamin D and Vitamin D is your body’s best protection against cancer.
