A New Year's resolution
that can stop cancer
If you're like many Americans, you've been celebrating the holidays with a lot of tasty food. Now, with the New Year hitting tomorrow, it's time to make some resolutions. And I have a great suggestion for you - one that might save you from cancer.
For years, I have warned you about diet, abdominal fat, and metabolic syndrome. If you are partaking in the standard American diet (SAD), you have significantly increased your risk of cancer.
A recent study out of Mexico followed 62,739 postmenopausal women for nine years. Eating more carbohydrates, having a large abdominal girth, and a high glycemic diet all contributed to increased breast cancer risk. Each of these factors figured to increase your risk between 28% and 37%.
Eating SAD raises insulin to cover for the increased processed carbohydrate load. Insulin not only converts the excess sugar to abdominal fat, but it also triggers changes in cells that can lead them to cancer. It's why I continually refer to insulin as the hormone of aging and death.

But you can fix the problem immediately. Simply make a resolution this year to eliminate all (or most) processed carbohydrates. All of your carbs should come from whole plants, especially fruits and starchy veggies. There's just no place for all the empty carb calories filling the toxic SAD diet.
This diet is filled breads, pastas, and sugars. And most of these foods contain processed fats and oils. Yes, they improve the taste. But they make the foods much worse for you. And they can increase your risk for cancer. Avoiding these foods — or at least cutting back on them significantly — can greatly reduce your cancer risk.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
