According the American Cancer Society, cancer can be caused by an alteration of genetic material or DNA/RNA in cell function. The real challenge is to create a plan or strategy to minimize one’s genetic predisposition to altered cell function and adopt a lifestyle that minimizes toxic compounds either in or on the body. Once you have minimized toxic exposure in your diet and work environment, the next step is to help your body’s major detoxification organs do their work. Optimal health of your liver, colon, and thyroid gland are significant for cancer prevention.
I have supported our patients with vitamin D and iodine, which promote a phase of cell function called apoptosis—limited cell life; this process limits the life span of all cells including cancerous ones.
