How Does Nutritional Supplements Prevent Cancer?

Sunday 25 September 2011

Dr. Ray D. Strand is an American who graduated from the University of Colorado Medical School. He has been actively practicing as a doctor for the past 30 years. 

He is the author of a book titled "What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You". His rather unconventional view is - the best defense against developing any degenerative diseases and pre-mature aging is the body's natural defense system, not the drugs he prescribes.

Please spend 2 minutes to read this excerpt from his book:

"Nutritional science offers us the greatest hope in our fight against cancer and several other degenerative diseases. They not only help prevent cancer but may actually enhance the traditional chemo- and radiation therapy. How can the process of building up the body's natural defense be bad? Shouldn't physicians want their patients to be as healthy as possible, since cancer treatments are going to put patients under the greatest stress they have had to endure in their lives?

Natural antioxidants and their supporting nutrients are the ideal chemo-preventive agents for many reasons. They
  • limit and even prevent the free-radical damage to the DNA nucleus of the cell.
  • provide the proper nutrients needed for the body to repair any damage that has been done already.
  • are safe and may be taken over a lifetime. (Pharmaceutical drugs do not share this advantage. Tamoxifen, which has been shown to decrease the risk of breast cancer, has very serious side effects.)
  • are relatively inexpensive.
  • provide the best defense against further advancement of cancer.
  • protect the body against oxidative stress that chemotherapy and radiation create.
  • embellish the cancer-fighting ability of chemotherapy and radiation.
  • inhibit the replication and growth of the cancer.
  • have been shown to cause tumor regression in some instances.

We cannot deny that the effectiveness of traditional cancer treatments has reached a plateau. Oncologists and radiation therapists must become more open-minded about antioxidant use in their patients. As researchers seriously consider the use of multiple antioxidants at optimal levels, cancer prevention and treatment may well be revolutionized. In the meantime the research that is presently available supports the use of antioxidants in all stages of chemo-prevention and cancer therapy."
