In the recent past there has been discussion about the value of vitamins in the treatment and prevention of cancer. Whilst vitamins may help a better source for your cancer fighting ingredients is Natural Whole Food Supplements as they contain ALL the nutrients needed to help you in your struggle against this and the other debilitating diseases. Research has found that people whose diet is low in vitamin A are more likely to risk getting cancers of the stomach, colon, rectum, lung, larynx, bladder and prostate. Alongside this is the news that vitamin C may also lower the risk of stomach and oesophagus cancers.
Vitamins aren’t the only nutrients that can help prevent cancer and other diseases; minerals also play an important role. Zinc is very important for men at risk of hardening of the prostate, a pre-cancerous condition.
How does cancer develop? The most popular theory is that it is caused by free radicals, which damage the DNA of the cells, transforming a healthy cell into a cancerous one. So you would think that we ought to prevent free radicals forming! Easier said than done as free radicals are formed by oxygen, and as the cells need oxygen to survive and without it we die! Obviously the formation of free radicals is an inevitable fact of life. There are some ways you can restrict the formation of them an important one being not smoking as you ingest several billion with every puff.
Fortunately, with Food Supplements, you can neutralise free radicals, they contain substances known as antioxidants and phytonutrients. There is a growing amount of evidence that these can and do reduce the chance that most of the major diseases will ever get a foothold in your body. These include cancer, heart disease, arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, cataracts, Alzheimer’s and diabetes. Colds and flu will be of a shorter duration and less severe.
Experiments have shown that DNA damaged by free radicals can and is repaired by you if there is a plentiful supply of nutritional substances. Yes, you CAN get them from your diet but you more than likely do not as it is nearly impossible to eat sufficient quantities of food to obtain all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to help it remain healthy to a ripe old age most of us go down the debilitating road to our demise, not dropping off the end or having the plug pulled at the last possible moment, shouting WOW what a life.
