There are some forms of cancer that are just really difficult to treat. And pancreatic cancer ranks at the very top of that list. Sadly, it has the worst survival rate of any form of the disease. So, anything that can help cut the risk of this deadly enemy ought to be front page news. But what did I hear after the results of a groundbreaking new study that came out in July?
So allow me to tell you about this exciting new research.
Researchers found that higher intakes of the antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E, and selenium can cut the risk of developing pancreatic cancer–by as much as 67 percent.
That’s a pretty remarkable observation. And certainly something that’s simple to achieve. These particular nutrients are easy to get–both in foods and in supplements. And they’re relatively inexpensive, to boot.
It’s nice to see the old standards are still the ones to beat in terms of prevention.
And it’s also nice to see some positive news about antioxidants for once. They’re one of the most powerful tools we have in our anti-cancer arsenal. Yet, they don’t get much support from the traditional medical community. In fact, more often than not, the mainstream “experts” tell people not to take antioxidants.
But despite the mainstream’s mixed messages, you simply can’t argue with scientific evidence.
And speaking of effective, scientifically proven ways to fight cancer naturally… In the upcoming September issue of my Logical Health Alternatives newsletter, I’ll cover this topic in much more detail. So if you’re not already a subscriber, find out how you can become one today.
If you or someone you love is currently battling this disease–or if you have a family history–this is one issue you don’t want to miss.
