Can You Reduce Your Risk of Cancer?

According to Dr. Mercola, Cancer surpassed heart disease as the number one killer in America in 2005 and now causes nearly 560,000 deaths in the United States each year.

Cancer is growing at alarming rates, which is particularly frustrating since the vast majority of cases could be prevented by lifestyle changes that include exercise, losing weight, eating healthy, and reducing stress.  The Center for Disease Control states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. Stress, in particular, weakens the immune system significantly and could translate into growth of cancer cells.  Only 25 percent of people eat the daily recommended vegetable requirement, so by all means eat your vegetables; wheat grass being one of them.

Limiting sugar intake and processed foods as much as possible is another way to reduce cancer risk. Processed foods are high in sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup. Sugar or refined carbohydrates cause your body to release insulin.  Normalizing your insulin levels is important to lower your risk of cancer and exercise helps to drive your insulin levels down.

In summary, the most powerful cancer-prevention methods are available to you right now, with no prescription or doctor’s visit needed. In fact, reducing your cancer risk is more about taking control of your health than perhaps any other factor.

Nobel Laureate, Dr Otto Warburg, discovered cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Wheatgrass is one of the highest alkaline foods available. Only Best Organic Wheatgrass includes both the roots and leaves, each containing cancer fighting agents.
