[WARNING] Heart patients face unexpected deadly new threat
It’s like almost getting hit by a car, with just inches to spare after carelessly stepping off a sidewalk without looking.
But before you breathe a sigh of relief…
Before you can check out that footage of your life passing before your eyes…
Before you can consider how lucky you were to survive such a close call…
You get hit by a bus!
I don’t mean to be grim, but new research is a warning for anyone who’s survived one of the biggest health scares of all.
If you’ve had a heart attack… if you’ve survived and made it home… if you’re ready to breathe a sign of relief…
Better look both ways – because there’s a new threat just up ahead.
And today, I’m going to help you dodge it!
What EVERY heart attack survivor needs to watch for
If there’s one thing every heart patient is painfully aware of, it’s that one heart problem can lead to another.
Once you’ve had a heart attack, you’re at risk of a second one.
And I’m sure you’re doing your best to avoid it.
That’s what makes this other risk so dangerous – because it’s completely out of the blue.
While you’re worried about your ticker – as you should be, of course – something else could be quietly happening deep inside your body.
Like that bus sneaking up from the other side, a tumor could be forming.
The new study finds that survivors of major heart problems including heart attack and heart failure have a much higher risk of cancer than anyone expected.
And when I say much higher, I mean we’re not even in “percents” anymore. It’s in “times” territory.
The risk is SEVEN TIMES higher!
And other major risk heart factors – like high blood pressure or diabetes – can TRIPLE your risk of cancer, even if you haven’t had a big heart scare.
One key reason for it is inflammation.
When you’ve had a heart attack, your body pumps out inflammatory compounds.
It’s partly a defense mechanism; some types of inflammation are caused by immune cells trying to heal damage.
But there’s a downside to it as too much inflammation brings its own problems… including, as the new study shows, a higher risk of some forms of cancer.
So add two things to your daily routine to cut that risk back down to size:
First, try green tea. It’s loaded with a powerful class of flavonoids called epigallocatechins that fight the damage of oxidative stress.
More importantly for today’s purposes, it’s a powerful inflammation-fighter… and not coincidentally in light of the new research, has been shown to protect the heart AND fight off cancer at the same time.
And second, try curcumin, which can wipe put inflammation, protect the heart and in lab tests has been shown to fight cancer in at least a dozen different ways.
