How YOU could be at risk for lung cancer… even if you’ve NEVER smoked!
Experts consider it one of the biggest puzzles in cancer today.
As more people quit smoking, the number of lung cancer should go down.
And they have...
But not nearly as much as they expected – and the reason for it is as frightening as it is mysterious.
You see, more people who’ve NEVER SMOKED are now getting the disease!
Now, the latest research nails down what could be one key reason for the sudden surge in lung cancer among never-smokers.
And it’s something you can ARM YOURSELF against, so you’ll never face the devastating news that you have this deadly disease.
The mysterious rise of lung cancer
People are smoking less, but lung cancer is still far and away the deadliest form of the disease.
Lung cancer kills more than 140,000 Americans every year – more than cancers of the breast, prostate, colon, rectum, stomach and skin COMBINED.
And nearly 1 in 4 of these lung cancer patients have NEVER smoked!
There are a few reasons for it, including toxins in food and even a growing number of drugs with cancer as a known risk (even some blood pressure meds, yikes). Radon gas and pollution also play a role.
But the new study finds another reason: It could be triggered by a breakdown in your immune system!
See, as your immune system loses steam, inflammation levels rise. Cancer cells in the lung especially can feed off that inflammation.
It creates the perfect condition for a tumor to grow and thrive in.
The mainstream, of course, is stunned.
I’ve been saying this for decades now.
Anyone who knows me… anyone who’s come to my clinic here in the beautiful Berkshires… and spoken with me about cancer risk knows that my long-time cancer-beating protocol is built around shoring up the immune system:
- If you’re at risk for cancer, this will BLOCK
- And if you have the disease, this same immune-boosting approach can help you to FIGHT IT OFF.
If you’re concerned about your own risk for ANY form of cancer, I’d suggest starting off with a funny-sounding supplement called Turkey Tail.
No part of the turkey is used in it; it’s actually a medicinal mushroom that can power up the immune system to slow the growth of tumors and fight off cancer.
I recommend a form from a company called Fungi Perfecti, especially this time of year as the immune boost you’ll get from Turkey Tail can also protect against cold and flu. (For the record, I have no financial ties with this company; I just think it has a fine product.)
And if you’re at especially high risk of cancer, talk to a doctor about low-dose naltrexone (LDN).
This therapy helps the immune system when you’re fighting cancer… but there’s evidence that at very low doses it can also stimulate the immune system to arm it against the disease so that it never forms (among many, many other amazing benefits).
Most mainstream docs don’t know much about LDN, so speak to a physician experienced in integrative or functional medicine.
