liver cancer

  1. NEVER get liver cancer (Here’s the secret)

    It felt like NOBODY was talking about liver disease 50 years ago.  

    Now, deaths from liver disease and liver cancer are going through the roof…  

    Deaths from liver cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) are up 65 percent. And just since 1980, deaths from liver cancer have TRIPLED.  

    EVERYTHING – from what we eat, to the drugs we take – is attacking our livers.  

    But new research has revealed a way to slash your risk of both liver disease AND liver cancer… 

    A new study out of Finland followed 854 people for 25 years.  

    Researchers found that folks with low levels of vitamin D had a 67% higher risk of liver disease and a 91% higher risk of liver cancer. 

    That means drastically reducing your risk of liver disease…  practically down NOTHING… is as simple as getting a little sunshine!   

    It makes sense. Today’s skyrocketing rates of liver disease and liver cancer match up directly with our low D levels. An estimated 85% of Americans – nearly our entire population – are D-deficient.  

    Here’s how you can make sure you’ve got enough D right away… 

    easy ways to increase your vitamin D levels 

    1. Take it easy on the sunscreen.  

    One of the biggest culprits behind D-deficiency is sunscreen.  

    Every year we hear the same warnings and scare tactics when summer arrives: slather yourself with SPF 1000, cover head to toe with clothing, and hide under an umbrella.  

    But summertime is the ONLY time most of us in North America can generate enough vitamin D from natural sunlight – the best, most natural way to get enough D. As long as you stay aware of any twinge of sunburn.  

    Now, dermatologists will warn you: if you don’t wear sunscreen, you’ll get skin cancer. That’s a laugh. As sunscreen use has gone up with every decade, the skin cancer rate has gone up right along with it!  

    I’m not saying sunscreen is the culprit. But it certainly isn’t the cure. And the sun isn’t Satan. 

    Think about it. Our ancestors spent most of their time outside – WITHOUT sunscreen. If you’re worried about skin cancer, focus on eating foods that fight cancer like vegetables, nuts, beans, eggs, and fruits.  

    1. Take a vitamin D supplement. 

    If getting out in the sun isn’t an option, you can supplement with 40,000 IU of Vitamin D daily.  

    1. Eat vitamin-D rich foods. 

    Still another great option is to pile your plate with Vitamin D-rich foods like fatty fish (salmon and mackerel), oysters, beef liver, and mushrooms.

  2. The Paleo diet may prevent liver cancer

    Prevent cancer with this Paleo-friendly mineral trick

    When it comes to your health, we doctors can often trace an issue right back to what you put into your body.

    A poor diet, for instance, can lead to higher rate of infection, digestion issues, and even disease. But replace those unhealthy foods with unprocessed, natural, nutrient-filled dishes... and you could see a huge improvement.

    If you read my eTips regularly, then you know what a supporter I am of the Paleo diet -- because it can, among other things, halt diabetes development, prevent heart disease, and even help you lose weight.

    And now, research published in the American Society of Nutrition says that the Paleo diet may even help prevent liver cancer.

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reviewed data on 520,000 men and women between the ages of 25 and 70 over the course of eight years.

    They noted that selenium levels in the blood were SIGNIFICANTLY lower in folks who had two specific types of liver cancer: hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and gallbladder and biliary tract cancers (GBTC).

    And those with higher levels of selenium in their blood showed a lower risk specifically for HCC as well.

    Selenium is a trace element found in foods like salmon, shellfish, Brazil nuts, meats, eggs, and other staples of the Paleo diet... it is also a critical part of the reproductive process, metabolism, and detoxing your body to prevent infection.

    It is thought to help stave off several different types of cancer -- not only liver, but also breast, prostate, and colon -- by acting as an antioxidant and reducing your body's inflammatory response.

    And, as we know, inflammation can cause pain as well as tissue damage and disease.

    The researchers suggest that upping your selenium intake could go right along with liver cancer prevention methods like limiting alcohol, managing weight, and quitting smoking -- although it may not do a thing for one type of liver cancer, intrahepatic bile duct cancer (IHBC).

    If your selenium levels have plummeted from kidney dialysis or an infection (especially one that's caused diarrhea), you can supplement with selenium, which you can find in a daily multi, on its own in capsule form, or in a prostate support formula.

    But your body doesn't need a lot of selenium, even to prevent cancer and other diseases. You can get plenty of it by just eating the equivalent of six to eight Brazil nuts a day, as long as you're not allergic to them.

    But there is such a thing as getting too much selenium, so don't go too nuts.

    Following the Paleo diet will likely get you all the selenium you need -- as well as other essential nutrients and minerals like magnesium and potassium -- without overdoing it. Just make sure you stick to organic versions of your favorite Paleo-friendly foods to get the highest concentration of the nutrient out of them.

    A daily coffee habit can cut your risk of liver cancer in half, according to the latest research.
