A new CDC report shows that cancer is rapidly surpassing heart disease as the nation’s number one cause of death.

Heart disease has been America’s top killer for decades. But a new government report shows that cancer is closing in fast.

In 2000, cancer was the number one killer in just two states, Alaska and Minnesota. But now, cancer is the top killer in 22 states and gaining fast, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control1

The chart below shows how cancer is taking over. The blue states are places where cancer has emerged since 2000 to replace heart disease as the number one killer. The green states are where heart disease still takes more lives than any other cause.

The Chemicals That Are Killing Us

It’s no wonder that cancer is on the rise. As processed foods have increased in the American diet, so has cancer. Many artificial additives used by food manufactures have been shown to be carcinogenic.2

Artificial sweeteners are another big driver of cancer. The popularity of zero-calorie sweeteners in recent decades coincides with the growth of cancer deaths. Animal studies link them with leukemia and DNA damage that can cause cancer.3

Besides our food, there are now cancer-causing chemicals in just about everything we come in contact with. We recently told you how a weed killer linked to prostate and breast cancers is in 94% of the drinking water in the U.S.

Carcinogens are in many household items we use every day… Everything from flooring and clothing to water bottles and cosmetics.4,5,6

Recommended for You: Fight Cancer From Your Kitchen

A snack that protects you from one of the deadliest cancers… A common spice that shrinks tumors in weeks… The most popular room in your house could be a genuine cancer clinic. Just ask Ellen Shepherd. At 87 she had skin cancer—again. This time, she opted out of surgery and used oil from a common herb instead. And you won’t believe what happened next…

The American Society of Clinical Oncology predicts the cancer death toll will continue to accelerate. They say the number of cancer cases will increase 45% by 2030.7

What can you do to protect yourself and your family?

  • Eat organic. Many agrichemicals are known carcinogens.
  • Avoid plastics. Microwave foods in glass instead of plastic. Use a stainless steel water bottle instead of a plastic one.8
  • Stay away from canned foods. The lining of most cans contains BPA, which is linked to breast cancer.9
  • Use a quality water filter. Many municipal water supplies have been found to be tainted with chemical pollutants. And drinking bottled water out of a plastic container is not much better.

There are other effective, natural solutions for fighting cancer you should know about.

For example, Carol R., a retired schoolteacher, was diagnosed with breast cancer diagnosis in 2009. Mainstream treatments scared her. So she went to a specialized health facility in Wichita, Kansas, for an alternative therapy.

Now she says, “Not only is the cancer gone, I feel stronger than I did 20 years ago—which is amazing because I thought I was healthy then.”

For details on Carol’s treatment and others who’ve tried it, go HERE.
