For those that do not want the inconveniece of it, they can spend
a day for the cure. It is vitamin D! You can get it from bright enough
sunlight or take it as a supplement (like they did in the studies done). For the breast cancer to be
eradicated, the body needs
many times more vitamin D than just for bone density. You need
'lifeguard levels' of vitamin D to prevent and treat cancer! Below are other things to prevent cancer to lower your chances of getting cancer even more like green tea and tumeric.

by other parts. So they say that vitamin D is actually a hormone.

Vitamin D has become one of the most well-researched nutrients out there, and studies have repeatedly demonstrated that it can significantly reduce your cancer risk, and increase your chances of surviving cancer if you do get it.Vitamin D influences virtually every cell in your body, which is part of why it's effective against so many different kinds of cancer and other disease states. Your organs convert the vitamin D in your bloodstream into calcitriol, which is the hormonal or activated version of vitamin D. Your organs then use calcitrol to repair damage, including that from cancer cells. Vitamin D also triggers apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells."

What vitamin is almost totally absent from our

Vitamin D has a dramatic impact on the health

cell differentiation (which puts cells into an anti-cancer state). That
makes vitamin D one of the most potent cancer inhibitors--and

was published that gave
about 1000 women 1100 IUs of Vitamin D [not nearly enough] and tracked

cancer incidences as the study progressed (including breast cancer)....
The results were
remarkable, the Vitamin D supplements had a very
strong effect at preventing cancer development even in just a few years
and the corrected blood value for Vitamin D correlated with the
protective effects against cancer.6 This study was so
impressive because cancer-causation is a process that

years have pointed to an association between geographic location and
the risk of dying of certain diseases. For example, people who live in
more southerly latitudes (and who receive year-round sunshine) appear
to have a lower risk of dying of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and
some cancers, such as colon and breast, than do those who live in
northern latitudes. Researchers suspect that the higher sun exposure,
which creates more vitamin D in the skin, may be responsible. [Note

body the chemicals that make you feel better as far as mood goes.
So instead of taking a supplement of iodine that is a chemical, eat
seaweed. Seaweed has plenty of iodine and lots of trace minerals since
the sea is loaded with these. You can buy granulated kelp (sold in
health food stores) and sprinkle it on food. "From Japan, Dr Funahashi

Similarly, higher dietary Iodine intake is associated with less goiter
and breast cancer. For example, Japan has the highest dietary
intake of iodine (13 mg per day), and the lowest rates for goiter and
breast cancer. However, when Japanese women immigrate and
change dietary intake of Iodine to the lower 150 mcg/day in America,
breast cancer rates increase. [Note that the Japanese eat a lot of
seaweed (sea vegetables) like the seaweed dishes at Sushi restaurants.]
is the most important section. Even if someone is treating you for
cancer, the most important part is up to you. If you
are leaving this up to someone else to cure you, then it may or may not
work. But if you are doing what you can do, then there is little chance
that you will not get rid of your cancer if you follow what is

first you will need to do some reading and learning to find out what
you can do for cancer treatment and prevention. If enough people use
the information here, they can eradicate almost all of the cancer in
the U.S. Some of the information here comes from Anticancer

Servan-Schreibner, MD, PhD. This doctor grew up where a
cancer causing pesticide was used a lot and he got cancer at age 31. He
wrote this book 15 years later.
saw that when he was being treated, doctors were doing their job that
they get paid to do. They get paid the same whether their treatment
cures the cancer or not. Whereas for him it was not a job but a matter
of life or death. So he decided to find all the latest and safest ways
to treat and prevent cancer. Note that integrative medicine
is a combination of alternative and conventional medicine.
David Servan-Schreibner says in the book Anticancer:
I have cancer. I was
diagnosed for the first time 15 years ago. I received conventional treatment
and the cancer went into remission, but I relapsed after that. Then I
decided to learn everything that I could to help my body to defend
itself against the illness. As a physician, established researcher, and
a former director of the Center of Integrative Medicine at
the University of Pittsburgh, I had access to invaluable information
about natural approaches to prevent or help treat cancer.
He asked his doctor about things that he could do
for cancer treatment and his doctor said
nothing in a lot of words. Dr. David says "In reality, what my doctor
meant was that onology [study of cancer] is an extraordinarily complex
field that is changing at breakneck speed. He was already hard pressed
to keep up with the most recent diagnostic and therapeutic procedures."
Also cancer is big business. The U.S. has spent $79 billion researching
cancer for decades and cancer is now the number one cause of death
among people under 80 years old.

lot of new reserach has been done on this sunshine vitamin or hormone.
Besides cancer it is very effective against type 1 diabetes,
colds and flus and many other health problems that are addressed on the

nearly enough to get rid of 70% of cancer especially breast cancer. One
scientist says that enough vitamin D will eradicate breast cancer
The above book has a lot of
great information but it is way off when it says that 30 minutes a day
of sunlight provides enough vitamin D. If you are at the latitiude of
Boston, MA then there are 3 months of the year where you cannot get any
vitamin D from sunlight even if you were in the sunlight nude
day. At the latitude of Montreal, this number is 5 months.
Take 29 minutes to watch this video about vitamin D and cancer.
It sums up a 2 day conference with over 100 scientists that was
sponsored by the NCI (National Cancer Institute). It is very easy
to take a vitamin D supplement compared to changing your diet or
getting more exercise. You need the optimim amount of vitamin D or what
they call lifeguard levels of vitamin D. This is explained in the
but you can also get it from supplements.
The vitamin D that you get
from sunlight is non-toxic pre-vitamin D so you cannot get too much.
The scientists have determined that it is safe for anyone to take 2,000
IU of vitamin D a day. They have capsules that contain 1,000 IU. If you
take over 70,000 IU a day then that would be too much. That would be 70
of the above capsules a day.
latest RDA says that 4,000 IU a day is fine for any adult and
that even 10,000 IU of vitamin D a day should be fine. The
Vitamin D Solution tells about
a guy who took 1,000,000 (one million) IU a day of vitamin D due to a
manufacturing error. He had vitamin D toxcicity (hypervitaminosa D) but
stopped taking it and fully recovered.
You may have heard that sunlight
causes skin cancer. But if you check different studies, you find that
in England the highest rates of skin cancer are with people who are in
the office all day and spend no time in the sunlight. The lowest rates
of skin cancer are with lifeguards in Australia. What you have heard
were the marketing efforts of companies trying to sell you billions of
dollars of sun block while increasing cancer levels.
Just check your history and you will
find that before this, decades ago, these same companies sold billions
of dollars of sun tan lotions that were marketed as something that
would cause you to get a sun tan instead of a sun burn. The main
ingredient in these sun tan lotions was butter or oil! "Tan don't burn, get a Coppertone tan."
They had big billboards advertising this with a girl with a dark tan
with a dog pulling down her bathing suit bottom and you see that she is
very pale there. See picture here.

You never heard that? Right. Because it didn't happen.
Here are a few things that really did happen:
In the 1980s, dermatologists began warning about the dangers of
sunlight. Their advertisements were heavily funded by the cosmetics and
sun screen industry.
In the 1980s the current triple childhood epidemics of asthma,
diabetes, and autism quietly began. Rates of cancer and other chronic
illnesses began to escalate.
In 1989, the American Medical Association's Council on Scientific
Affairs warned about the dangers of sun-exposure, advising mothers and
children to "stay out of the sun as much as possible."
In 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics warned mothers to always
keep infants out of direct sunlight, use sun-protective clothes, sun
block, and make sure children's activities in general minimize sunlight
In 2000, it was documented that rickets � vitamin D deficiency is
making a comeback in American children who drink less milk and more
juice and sodas.
Today, we have escalating rates of cancer and chronic disease. Many say
hiding from the sun's rays, and living with the subsequent low levels
of vitamin D, was one of the tickets to that train wreck.

optimum amount to take (you can tell your doctor about this) so they
are testing 4,000, 6,000, 8,000 and 10,000 IU of vitamin D per day.
Vitamin D supplements are
available in 2 forms, vitamin D-2 and vitamin D-3. The vitamin D-3 is

anywhere. Vitamin D-2 is from plant sources so it is vegetarian but is
harder to find. So below is a link to get some from amazon.com. They

There are some articles that say
that vitamin D-2 is not as effective as vitamin D-3. But Dr Holick

this is true in real life, not theories. So he did 4 different studies
to test out these theories. In this video

Different phytochemicals have different colors. Like the lycopene in
tomatoes and watermelon make those foods red. Phytochemicals are

beta-carotene. The term is generally used to refer to those chemicals
that may affect health, but are not yet established as essential
A third healthy-eating fundamental is EAT ALKALINE.
Acid-alkaline balance is a key principle often ignored even by who
habitually eat health foods. Many researchers recommend a dietary
ratio of about 80% plant based foods to 20% animal foods, approximating
an 80% alkaline to 20% acid diet.
The fourth principle is EAT
ORGANIC. To most of us, organic produce is that which is grown without
chemical pesticides or other chemical additives. Also if it is not
organic, it may be genetically modified foods.
To reiterate, the best diets all have in common these four basic
principles: EAT PRIMITIVE, EAT COLORFUL, EAT
ALKALINE, EAT ORGANIC.
