How to send cancer on a permanent vacation

What are you doing for vacation this year?

Instead of worrying over where to go or what to do, think about this: Commit to making a few changes outlined below and send your risk of cancer on a permanent vacation — in as little as two weeks.

There’s proof: Scientists did it — and it worked. And not just against any cancer, but colon cancer — the third most common cancer in the world. All you have to do is eat more like your ancestors did…

Researchers have found that when people go from eating natural, unprocessed foods and begin eating the detrimental Standard American Diet (SAD), changes occur right away that rapidly increase risk of colon cancer.

Numerous studies have especially noticed this occurrence with Japanese-Americans. The Japanese diet is so healthy that most disease is a tiny fraction in Japan compared to in the U.S. But when Japanese people move to the US and begin eating like typical Americans, their health plummets.

So is the reverse true? What if someone switches from the SAD diet to a better whole foods diet, rich in the nutrients that do a body good — does the cancer risk then rapidly decrease?

Researchers at the Pitt School of Medicine decided to see. They had Americans and South Africans swap diets after finding that rural people in in South Africa hardly ever have colon cancer or intestinal polyps growths that often turn into cancer. In the U.S. and other western countries, colon cancer has become the second leading cause of deaths from cancer.

In their two week experiment, the scientists persuaded 20 Americans to eat a diet similar to the typical South African diet for two weeks. At the same time, they had the 20 Africans eat what Americans are usually consuming.

The typical American diet has more animal protein and fat, but also much less soluble fiber than the African diet. Soluble fiber protects your colon, and a lack of it is thought to increase colon cancer risk.

After two weeks, the experiment showed that the Americans’ cancer risk had already dropped while the South Africans’ risk had jumped. In particular, the Americans had more butyrate in their colons, a substance produced by intestinal bacteria that helps fight cancer.

So how do you eat more like the South Africans do? Well, the African diet has about five times more fiber in it than ours does. That means go heavy on the fruits and vegetables and other foods with real, soluble fiber, including legumes (peas, beans, lentils), fruits and vegetables (especially oranges, apples and carrots).

But if you have any doubts about your diet keeping you cancer free, Dr. Michael Cutler, author of Surviving Cancer, says there are 10 cancer-fighting nutrients (and numerous foods and alternatives) you can supplement with, including resveratrol and omega-3 fatty acids to help protect yourself.
