14th century Chinese secret fights breast cancer

This year over 255,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 40,000 will die from the disease.

These statistics are pretty scary.

It means that women have a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer at some point in their lives.

And, once diagnosed, they’re run through the gamut of radiation, chemo, and even complete mastectomy.

To make things even worse, traditional doctors still recommend mammograms as their front-line tool to detect breast cancer early even with studies proving them ineffective and even damaging to women, since they too often lead to false positives and unnecessary surgeries.

Whether you have never been diagnosed with the disease, have a genetic pre-disposition, or have already fought off cancer before, taking steps to prevent breast cancer more effectively and safely is important for every woman.

Luckily, there is a little-known breast cancer preventing fruit that has been used by the Chinese since the 14th century, and is not only easy to use but has been shown in studies to actually kill tumors and improve your overall health at the same time.

Bitter melon provides sweet results

Bitter melon is a strange looking plant that looks a lot like an ugly, wrinkled cucumber.  It grows in Asia, Africa, and even some parts of the Caribbean.

The fruit was first used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine and was then introduced to the Chinese to treat everything from skin and respiratory infections to blood sugar problems.

What’s amazing is that even though there have been more than 100 studies that show the incredible health benefits of this fruit, you’ve probably never even heard of it, since mainstream medicine and pharmaceutical companies work hard to cover up anything natural that works to cure disease.

Yet, on top of all of the other health issues bitter melon can help, it has now also been shown that this super fruit has the power to kill breast cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

In fact, the compounds in this fruit not only destroy tumors but even work to prevent cancer cells from spreading.

How to get the benefits of bitter melon

Bitter melon’s powerful cancer fighting properties make it a great breast cancer prevention tool all women should add in to their daily lives.

Although, you can often buy the fruit in your local grocery store, many people find the taste difficult to get used to.

Try it and see what you think.  If the sour flavor isn’t for you, bitter melon extract is easy to find.  Just take 1,000-2,000 milligrams per day for the best effects.  You may need to split the dose into 2 or more servings a day to increase absorption.

And, if you suffer from diabetes, be sure to follow up with your doctor since the fruit’s positive effect on your blood sugar will more than likely require your medication dosage to be reduced — maybe even eliminated depending on your type.  Just one more reason to love bitter melon.

However you choose to incorporate bitter melon into your daily life, you will feel better knowing this amazing Chinese secret is at work in your body fighting to prevent breast cancer.
