The hidden cancer risk that can strike YEARS later
You don't want to just SURVIVE your cancer. What good is survival... if you're in misery when it's all over?
You want to survive it in STYLE: You want to beat the disease and laugh in its face!
And the best way to get the last laugh against cancer is to live a full, healthy, and happy life after.
But too many cancer patients aren't getting that.
Sure, they're surviving their cancers, but new research reveals how they're facing OTHER risks LATER -- including rapid aging and early death.
I'd say it's as if the cancer wins... but the study also exposes another ugly truth about that damage.
It's not left behind by the cancer itself.
It's from the treatment!
Well, friend, I'm not about to let this disease OR its treatments get the best of you.
I'm here today with the key to not only surviving, but also thriving -- and it starts by recognizing the risks that most mainstream cancer docs will never talk about.
That's what happens later, when you're no longer in his care but forced to live with the damage his treatments have left behind.
The two most common, chemotherapy and radiation, can damage your cells on the genetic level, which causes the strands on your DNA to peel away like parts of a banana.
That's the kind of damage associated with advanced age -- but you could get there a whole lot sooner if you've had radiation or chemo, increasing your risk of everything from heart disease to dementia to death itself.
Those might be some of the BIGGEST risks.
But they're not the ONLY ones.
Some cancer patients are given long-term steroids, often in combination with chemo, which can lead to cataracts, weakened bone, nerve damage, immune system dysfunction, and more.
In addition, common cancer drugs can slam your thyroid... boost your blood pressure... weaken your muscles and joints... and trigger liver and kidney disease.
Radiation -- even without chemo -- can lead to dementia, stiffer arteries, and new cancers.
Call it more proof that it's not enough to beat CANCER.
You also have to beat the TREATMENTS, and there IS a way to do that -- you just won't hear about it from the doctor who's giving you those treatments.
A holistic medical doctor can work with you to help decide which treatments you might need and how to reduce or eliminate toxic side effects, including both short-term issues like nausea and long-term damage like that unraveling DNA.
