Natural Compound in "Throw Away" Food Could Reduce Cancer Risk by 70%

It has been more than 40 years since President Richard Nixon declared a “War on Cancer” and promised that a cure would soon be found.

However, in the four decades since the “war” began, more Americans continue to die from cancer each year than the year before. And while the research shows that people are being diagnosed with cancer earlier, we are living with it no longer than we were in the 1970s.

If there is a “War on Cancer”… it’s quite clear that mainstream medicine is on the losing end.

So, if conventional treatments can’t help us combat cancer, what can?

The answer can be found in natural healing protocols that remove the foods and toxins that can cause it, while supplementing the body with the superfoods, nutrients and lifestyle factors that are known to successfully treat and prevent the disease.

And one important part of this healing protocol could 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, U.S. taxpayers and private investors have spent more than $200 billion on cancer research. The three primary weapons that mainstream medicine has used to fight this “war” are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation… or cut, poison and burn, as the case may be.

But the evidence is clear that these options are simply not very effective… not to mention potentially deadly in their own right.

Although surgery can relieve the pain caused by a cancerous mass pressing against organs, it doesn’t really address the problem. And it can even cause cancer to spread as cancerous cells break away from the tumor during surgery and take hold in other parts of the body. Once cancer spreads, surgery is practically useless.

Chemo also fails to fix the problem. It uses chemicals to stop the growth of your body’s cells. But it does plenty of damage along the way as all of your cells are systematically poisoned. Those who submit to chemo can expect:

  • Hair loss
  • Violent nausea
  • Impotence
  • Extreme pain
  • Destruction of the immune-system, and
  • Death.

The basic hope behind chemotherapy is that it kills the cancer before it kills the patient.

The final option uses radiation to burn out cancer cells.

As with surgery, the goal of radiation is to remove the tumor. But as with chemotherapy, radiation also destroys non-cancerous cells.

Another key problem with radiation is that while it reduces the tumors’ size, it can make them even more malignant. And more malignant tumors are more resistant to treatment.

Worse, there is little evidence that radiation improves the patient’s survival rates.

Natural Solution Cuts Cancer Risk by Up to 70 Percent

These three options are prohibitively expensive and dangerous. They make the patient feel worse – not better. And the statistics clearly show that they just don’t work.

Cancer is the biggest killer of our time. Chances are that all of us will be touched in some way by this disease. But that doesn’t mean there is no hope.

The truth is that many promising solutions have shown great cancer-fighting potential, yet most of us don’t hear anything about them.

That’s because they are not part of the multi-billion dollar cancer research industry and because Big Pharma and mainstream medicine make so much money from those three flawed cancer treatments.

But the treatment we’re 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 could slash cancer risk by up to 70 percent.

The Secret May Be in Your Garden

We all know that the flesh of citrus fruits offers loads of health-boosting benefits. That’s because its stuffed with vitamins, essential minerals and other disease fighting phytonutrients.

But recent research reveals that the rind of citrus fruits may be just as powerful. And it could be a powerful weapon against cancer. That’s because it contains a compound called 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 d-limonene actually reduced pancreatic cancer cells by 50 percent. And the University of Arizona discovered that citrus rind could cut 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!

Each of those lab tests revealed that citrus peel could reduce the size, amount, and growth of cancer cells.

Another Citrus-Fruit Cancer Fighter

But d-limonene is not the only cancer-fighting compound in citrus peels. Research shows that modified citrus pectin (MCP) may stop cancer from spreading and is particularly effective against prostate and breast cancer.

The most recent science shows that MCP binds to the surface of cancer cells… which stops them from grouping together and spreading.

One study showed that MCP significantly slowed the spread of breast cancer in female patients, while another showed that it reduced the growth of cancer cells in men with prostate cancer by over 30 percent. The National Cancer Institute also conducted a remarkable study showing that MCP decreased the spread of lung cancer in rats by over 90 percent!

You easily find d-limonene and MCP in supplement form. However, we have not been able to find a guaranteed organic source. This is a concern since citrus crops are widely sprayed with pesticides and fungicides and these residues build up in the peel.

But there is a solution…

Adding Zest to Your Health

If you want to enjoy the proven health and disease-fighting benefits found in the peels of organic oranges, lemons and other organic citrus fruits… buy a zester. You can sprinkle finely grated citrus peel onto salads, mix it into salsa, add it to sliced fruit or stir it into tea.

Not only will you improve the taste and flavor… but you’ll be doing your body a favor as well.
