You’ve probably heard the news that 65-year-old screen star Michael Douglas has Stage IV throat cancer. He announced the news on the Late Show with David Letterman last week. The news comes just weeks before he appears in the hotly-anticipated sequel to Wall Street.
While the public is watching his new film, Douglas will be undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. This diagnosis is a poignant reminder that cancer can strike any of us, at any time.
That’s because cancer is still the world’s number one killer. Over 1,500 people die of cancer every day in the U.S… and one in three people are living with it.
The conventional response to cancer is exactly what Douglas is currently looking at… chemo, radiation, and surgery. But these standard therapies don’t seem to do much good against cancer.
Thirty-three years have passed since Nixon promised us a cure for cancer. Yet more people die of it each year than the year before. And the best clinical research shows that while people are diagnosed with cancer earlier, they are living with it no longer than they were back in 1977.
If conventional treatments can’t help us combat cancer, what can?
The answer may be found in your own back yard. It’s a simple, all-natural solution… And it may be able to cut your risk of cancer by 70 percent.
Doctors Offer Three Lethal Options
Since Nixon made his promise, we’ve spent $30 billion on finding a cure for cancer. And all we’ve come up with are the three options that Douglas is looking at… chemo, radiation, and surgery.
The big problem is that these options aren’t very effective.
For example, surgery doesn’t really address the problem. Instead, cancer often spreads after surgery. That’s because surgery causes the cancerous cells to break away from the tumor and infect other organs… thus spreading the cancer. Once cancer spreads, surgery is practically useless. All it can do is relieve some of the pain caused by a cancerous mass pressing against organs.
“Cancer is a systemic disease,” says cancer expert Dr. Allan Spreen. “Cutting it [out] is rarely the answer.”
Chemo also fails to fix the problem. Worse, it does plenty of damage along the way. It uses chemicals to kill the growth of all your body’s cells. And all your cells are systematically poisoned.
But anyone submitting to chemo can expect:
- Hair loss;
- Violent nausea;
- Extreme pain;
- Immune-system destruction; and
The basic hope behind chemo is that it kills the cancer… before it kills the patient.
The final option uses radiation to burn out cancer cells.
“The rationale is the same as with surgery,” says Dr. Spreen. “To remove the tumor by burning it away. But as with chemo, it is non-cancer cells that are often destroyed.”
The key problem with radiation is that while it reduces the tumors’ size, it makes them more malignant.
“The more malignant the tumor, the more resistant it is to treatment,” says Dr. Spreen. “What’s worse, there’s little evidence that radiation improves the chances of survival.”
Seeking Other Solutions
These three options aren’t just prohibitively expensive and dangerous… They don’t do much good either. In fact, there’s plenty of legitimate research that clearly shows they just make the patient feel worse – not better.
Cancer is the biggest killer of our time… and conventional medicine can’t effectively combat it. Chances are all of us will be touched by cancer… But that doesn’t mean there’s no hope.
The truth is, many promising solutions have shown great cancer-fighting potential… Yet most of us don’t hear about them.
That’s possibly because Big Pharma makes most of its billion-dollar profits out of those three flawed cancer treatments.
The treatment I’m about to show you is nothing but a headache to those big drug makers. It’s no more expensive than a piece of fruit… It’s totally safe… And the most recent research shows it can fight cancer by up to 70 percent…
The Secret May Be in Your Garden
If you or a loved one have cancer, a Central-American cure may be your answer. It has the benefits of chemo or radiation… but without the risks. Watch our special presentation to find out more.
If you don’t have cancer, then there are several powerful natural micronutrients you can start taking now to greatly reduce the chance you’ll ever be in Michael Douglas’s position….
We report on these preventative and curative options regularly as the studies come in… We are building a file of them which we will produce as a special report soon.
In the meantime, a new and exciting find gives new meaning to the phrase, “when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.”
We all know that the flesh of citrus fruits offers us loads of health-boosting benefits. That’s because they’re stuffed with minerals like vitamin C, vitamin B6, niacin, calcium, and many more.
But recent research reveals that we should be eating the rind as well. That’s because it contains d-limonene, which offers anti-tumor attributes.
Studies conducted on rats show that d-limonene fights breast, skin, liver, and lung cancer. It works by breaking down communication between cancer cells and destroying them from within.
One study found that limonene actually reduced pancreatic cancer cells by 50 percent. And the University of Arizona discovered that citrus rind cuts your risk of cancer by 30 percent. However, the real news here is that when it was taken with black tea, cancer risk was slashed by over 70 percent!
And each of those lab tests revealed that citrus peel could reduce the size, amount, and growth of cancer cells.
Adding Zest to Your Health
The most recent studies say that the peel of one orange may slash your cancer risk. One whole orange peel equals about 1 tablespoon of grated citrus peel. And it’s easy to get that into your diet…
- Sprinkle finely grated peel onto salads
- Mix into salsa
- Stir lemon zest into tea
- Add lemon zest to fruit compote
You can also buy limonene supplements in gel form. If you’d prefer to supplement your diet this way, shoot for 7-gram to 14-gram supplements each day.
Supplementing Your Health
Further research shows that citrus holds an additional cancer-fighting secret. Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is a citrus peel compound used in canned foods. But recent research shows it may also stop cancer from spreading. And it’s particularly effective against prostate and breast cancer.
Pectin is naturally found in citrus fruits. MCP is a modified form that breaks its molecules down into smaller groups, allowing for easy absorption into our bloodstream.
The most recent science shows that MCP binds to the surface of cancer cells… which stops them from grouping together and spreading.
One extraordinary study showed that MCP significantly slowed the spread of breast cancer in female patients. Another showed it reduced the growth of cancer cells in men with prostate cancer by over 30 percent. And the National Cancer Institute conducted a remarkable study showing that MCP decreased the spread of lung cancer in rats by over 90 percent.
It’s easy to get MCP into your daily diet. And there are no worries that it’s dangerous… Even the FDA has listed it as “recognized as safe.”
“I’m excited that there’s an alternative cancer treatment that the FDA is not clamping down on,” says Dr. Spreen.
You can pick up MCP in powder form or capsules. Dr. Spreen recommends mixing a daily dosage of 5 grams of powder into water or natural fruit juice three times a day during meals.
If you opt for the capsule form, you should take 800 mg three times a day with meals.
