Just like most other
non-hereditary cancers, colorectal cancer is eminently
preventable and avoidable, assuming you know what to do, and
have the discipline to do it. This guide will help you along.
[Video Transcript:] By now you already know
from the four preceding episodes that you are more likely to get
killed or seriously injured by the complications of colonoscopy
than by colorectal cancer , while the screenings do absolutely
nothing to prevent colon cancer. If anything, they are more
likely to hasten it.
So, to end the “Colonoscopy Risk” series on a
constructive note, I will help you to get started with real
prevention, not make-believe as commonly recommended by the same
people who promote colonoscopy screenings.
A lot of health-conscious individuals surrender
themselves to the risk of colon cancer because they falsely
believe it may be in their genes. In reality, according to the
National Cancer Institute, only 3% of all colorectal cancers are
This means about fifteen hundred people in
their early forties may die each year from truly bad genes,
about the same as the total number of Americans killed or
injured by colonoscopy screenings in just one week.
So, if any of your close relatives past fifty
have been affected by polyps or cancer , it simply means that
you may be affected by the same external risk factors as that
person. These risks are called endemic, dependent on your
habitat, you may end-up deaf too, but this has nothing to do
with any one genes.
In other words, if your brother eventually
becomes stone deaf because the two of you blasted your iPods
while growing up, you may end up deaf too, but this has nothing
to do with anyone's genes.
Also, this means that the remaining 97% of
colorectal cancers are mainly self-inflicted just like lung or
skin cancers are. If you take away the external causes of any of
these cancers, you aren't likely to get one either.
Still, a lot of people give up on prevention
altogether simply because most of the preventative advice is
unattainable or conflicting. So, lets avoid this trap, and follow the
80/20 rule. This rule means that 20% of any effort delivers 80%
of all results.
In this case, our “80% goal” concerns
inflammation of the mucosal membrane - the inside layer of the
bowel's wall - and anything that may cause it.
It is a well-established fact that bowel
inflammation is behind the majority of polyps and lesions that
eventually turn into cancerous tumors. When bowel inflammation affects the entire colon, the risk of
colorectal cancer, according to the National Institutes of
Health, increases “as much as 32 times the normal rate [link].”
That's right - three thousand two hundred
percent. For this reason alone, a life-long prevention of bowel
inflammation - localized, partial, or total - will deliver you
the utmost protection from colorectal cancer.
Since my recommendations are based on
preventing and reversing bowel disorders that cause
inflammation, besides escaping cancer, you will also get rid of
flatulence, irregularity, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal
bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal cramps, and all
the other equally nasty disorders that arise from them.
Not a bad proposition, actually… This
opportunity alone makes the prevention of inflammation
worthwhile regardless of your age or colon cancer risk, because,
as wise old doctors used to say, your health begins and ends in
To help you along, I've created a detailed
Colorectal Cancer Prevention Guide. It describes the primary
causes of bowel inflammation that precede colon cancer. These
causes are rarely, if ever, discussed by mainstream doctors, or
why it is important to eliminate them, and how to accomplish
Why is that - I don't know, so ask them, not
me? If you can't get a satisfactory answer, refer them to my
site. All of my recommendations are thoroughly referenced by
up-to-date research from blue chip sources, so doctors should
find themselves right at home!
My guide involves seven concurrent steps. These
steps address the primary causes of bowel inflammation and the
related risk factors that contribute to the oncogenesis of most
polyps, lesions, and tumors.
Step 1 goes to the core of the colon‘s
functions – the storage and removal of human waste. Any
breakdown in this process causes abnormal stools, and leads to
chronic bowel disorders. Since very few people actually know
what “normal” stools are, this step explains what they are, and
how to normalize them.
Dietary fiber happens to be the primary cause
of abnormal stools. Its side effects range from severe diarrhea
to colon obstruction. For this reason, step number two, explains
how to reduce your dependence on fiber without experiencing
constipation -- a common side effect of fiber withdrawal.
The connection between fiber, fermentation, and
cancer is so obvious, that even the arch-conservative Merck
Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy points out its role [link]:
Well, fiber happens to be the only “dietary
substance” that reaches the colon undigested and gets fermented
by bacteria. Alas, instead of eliminating fiber, Merck
recommends to kill bacteria with antibiotics. What else would
you expect from this charter member of big Pharma?
Dead bacteria brings us to step number three -
restoring the colon‘s ecosystem that was damaged by antibiotics.
It is an essential step, because bacteria prevent constipation,
protect the colon from pathogens, make essential vitamins, and
govern primary immunity, which, in turn, suppresses the
proliferation of numerous cancer-causing factors.
The moment you get rid of fiber and restore
your colon‘s ecology, the next challenge is staying regular.
Missing even one bowel movement hardens stools, and makes the
next defecation more difficult or downright impossible because
so many adults past forty already suffer from colorectal nerve
damage, and their colons no longer function properly. The moment
you get irregular there is a strong tendency to return right
back to fiber dependence, large stools, and antibiotics.
After becoming regular, our next goal is good
immunity. This is what protects you from random cell mutations,
environmental risks, and pre-existing problems. Step 5 explains
the role of immunity in cancer prevention, and explains what
needs to be done to keep it in top-notch shape.
Still, even the best immunity in the world can
be easily overrun by too many external risk factors, or
triggers, as I call them. The majors ones are drugs, wrong
foods, carcinogenic additives, heavy metals, and numerous
others. To stay cancer-free, you should anticipate and eliminate
as many of these triggers as possible. Therefore, step six -
Avoid Common Cancer Triggers - explains which ones, why, and
Finally, step seven, deals with slowing down
physiological aging… As you know, colorectal cancer affects
people past fifty the most. This is happening because all of the
preceding problems - colon deformation, nerve damage, fiber
dependence, and inflammatory bowel disease gradually overpower
our immunity as we age.
Obviously, you can't unwind your chronological
years. You can, however, reduce and somewhat reverse your rate
of physiological aging, and keep age-onset cancers at bay for
much, much longer.
I hope you also realize that all of these seven
steps will protect you from other major cancers, such as breast
cancer, ovarian, prostate, and so on… The organs and location
may differ, but the core causes, triggers, and protective
mechanisms are pretty much the same!
Well, at this point, the ball is in your court.
So, study the Colorectal Cancer Prevention Guide as if your life
depended on it, follow its common sense guidelines, and enjoy a
healthy gut for as long as humanly possible!
In turn, I wish you a ton of good luck, lots of
health, and a cancer-free future.
And never forget - the harder you work, the
luckier you get!
The preventative strategy presented in this
guide is based on the elimination of bowel diseases that
commonly precede colorectal cancer. It may not be foolproof for
people with preexisting conditions, but that doesn't mean that
you should ignore prevention for the same reason that the risk of a fatal car
accident doesn't stop you from driving.
It is a well-established fact that many
malignancies remains dormant or recede when their causes are
removed or diminished. In other words, what I recommend isn't a
focus-pocus, but a prudent strategy behind any effort to retain
health and attain longevity.
I know, I know, I know... Some of the information
and recommendations in this
guide are unconventional and counterintuitive. So, I hope the
following undeniable fact-of-life will assuage your concerns:
my entire body of work
is based on mainstream medical research emanating
from the best and the brightest medical minds. If one equals one,
and two equals two, and three equals three, than 1 + 2 + 3 can
only be six, not seven or five. In other words, if all of the
pieces are good quality, their sum can't be wrong either. So, study this guide to learn the facts, and do the
adding up on your own. This way you'll come to the exact same
conclusions that I did!
