Food how to get rid of light acne scars NOT Chemo Holds ‘Cure’ For Colon Cancer GreenMedInfo Blog

Colon cancer is one of the world’s most prevalent and lethal forms of cancer and is how to get rid of light acne scars believed to be driven primarily by the western pattern diet. It has been estimated that one million people around the how to get rid of light acne scars world are diagnosed with colon cancer, and 500,000 die from it, each year. Conventional treatment approaches continue to do very little to reduce how to get rid of light acne scars mortality, and this is believed to be due to the presence how to get rid of light acne scars of a subpopulation of colon tumor cells known as cancer how to get rid of light acne scars stem cells (cscs), or tumor-initiating cells (TIC), that are resistant to chemotherapy and therefore contribute to relapse. In fact, chemotherapy not only fails to destroy the cells at the how to get rid of light acne scars root of colon cancer but may also induce cancer stem how to get rid of light acne scars cell like properties (stemness) within colon tumor cells that otherwise would not express them, the result of which is to make the post-treatment, surviving colon cancer cells far more malignant. 1 radiotherapy has also been found to induce stemness in how to get rid of light acne scars cancers of the breast ( up to 30x increased tumorigenicity), indicating that both chemotherapy and radiotherapy — the purported ‘cure’ of conventional cancer care — may worsen the disease.

Given the bleak situation, interest in cancer stem cell targeting therapies of natural origin how to get rid of light acne scars has increased dramatically in the past few years. In a recent study published in nutrition titled, " colon carcinogenesis: influence of western diet-induced obesity and targeting stem cells using dietary bioactive compounds," researchers identified the western lifestyle and diet as a primary how to get rid of light acne scars driver of colon cancer incidence:

"Accumulating evidence suggests that lifestyle factors are one of the how to get rid of light acne scars predominant components that modulate susceptibility to colon cancer [12,13]. It is a concerning fact that the highest incidence rates how to get rid of light acne scars of colon cancer are observed in developed nations, including the united states [14]. Moreover, risk for colon cancer is elevated within one generation in how to get rid of light acne scars individuals who migrated from developing countries to developed countries. Colon cancer rates are rapidly rising in developing nations and how to get rid of light acne scars could be due to adoption of several features of the how to get rid of light acne scars western lifestyle, as previously reviewed [14]. Diets rich in red and processed meats, refined starches, sugar, and saturated and trans-fatty acids but poor in fruits, vegetables, fiber, u-3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin D, and whole grains are closely associated with an increased risk how to get rid of light acne scars for colon cancer. Other main features of the western lifestyle, such as excess body mass and sedentary behaviors, are also strongly associated with higher risk for developing colon how to get rid of light acne scars cancer [14–16]."

According to the study, the primary biological mechanism by which the western diet drives how to get rid of light acne scars colon cancer is through increasing insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) levels, decreasing IGF-binding proteins, which in turn increases bioactive (free) IGF-1 levels. This results in a complex cascade of molecular events consistent how to get rid of light acne scars with cancer initiation and promotion.

Of course, if the western diet is the primary driver of colon how to get rid of light acne scars carcinogenesis, the best preventive approach is to replace it by a how to get rid of light acne scars diet much higher in organically produced, high vegetable/fiber, high non-oxidized fat (richer in omega 3 and natural saturated fats), and anti-inflammatory ingredients. But when these modifications either are impossible to implement (think ‘food deserts’) or fail to take hold early enough or after colon how to get rid of light acne scars tumors and invasive cancer has already taken root, a more targeted and perhaps ‘heroic’ approach is needed but that is not reliant on chemotherapy.

According to the researchers, "the search for a nontoxic chemotherapeutic regimen is fueled by how to get rid of light acne scars epidemiologic studies that show correlation between plant-based diets and the reduced risk for various cancers [30]." their study focused on the following natural compounds as potential how to get rid of light acne scars chemotherapy alternatives:

The study identified these compounds as having potentially potent anti-colon cancer properties due in part to their ability to how to get rid of light acne scars interfere with elevated IGF-1 levels, as well as ameliorating many western diet-induced downstream effects, such as inhibiting the cancer stem cell self-renewal pathway known as the wnt pathway.

The remarkable thing about these phytocompounds is that they are how to get rid of light acne scars found in commonly consumed food ingredients. Curcumin is the primary polyphenol in the spice root turmeric, which is consumed the world over. Resveratrol is found in many common foods, including grapes, peanuts and chocolate. Lycopene is found in commonly consumed produce items such as how to get rid of light acne scars watermelon, tomatoes and guava fruit. Grape seed, while not commonly consumed outside supplement form, is found in grapes and is therefore an easily accessible how to get rid of light acne scars nutraceutical in most places in the world.

A hidden lesson here may be that instead of waiting how to get rid of light acne scars until after one is diagnosed with a serious health condition how to get rid of light acne scars such as colon cancer it would make sense to incorporate how to get rid of light acne scars smaller, culinary doses of these beneficial compounds on a daily basis how to get rid of light acne scars as a food-as-preventive-medicine approach versus taking heroic ‘drug like’ doses of the compounds later as ‘chemotherapy’ alternatives. While the latter choice should at least be made available how to get rid of light acne scars to those whose prognosis with chemotherapy or surgery alone looks how to get rid of light acne scars bleak, it would behoove medical professionals and their patients to take how to get rid of light acne scars seriously this preliminary research by using non-toxic dietary modifications and/or therapeutic concentrations of these bioactive food ingredients early on how to get rid of light acne scars as a preventive medicine strategy.
