Study Finds That Raw Garlic Cuts Lung Cancer Risk In HalfPosted: September 28, 2013
A new study out of China has determined that people who consume raw garlic as a regular diet were 44% less likely to suffer from lung cancer.
Researchers at the Jiangsu Provincial Centre for Disease Control surveyed the participants on their diet and lifestyle habits, including garlic consumption and whether or not they were smokers. Even among those who smoked, the garlic consumption reduced lung cancer risk by 30%. The study was published in the Journal Cancer Prevention research.
Researchers believe that the benefits of raw garlic may be linked to a chemical called allicin, which is released once the garlic is either smashed or diced. This chemical is rumoured to not only reduce inflammation but also decrease the damage from free radicals to the body’s cells. The study used the data of approximately 4,500 lung cancer patients and 4,500 healthy adults from 2003 to 2010. If you are looking to provide your body with a healthier environment, this is just one of the many health benefits raw garlic can provide you with. It’s time for human beings to make a change, and one of those changes includes the way we eat.
Cancer incidence rates continue to rise every year, according to the American Cancer Society. Males have approximately a 1 in 2 chance of developing cancer within their lifetime, and a 1 in 4 chance of dying from it. Women have a 1 in 3 chance of developing it and a 1 in 5 risk of dying from it. We continue to search for a cure, while we forget to acknowledge the cause. We choose to surround ourselves with a bombardment of chemicals, GMOs, artificial sweeteners, harmful cosmetics, hazardous household products and more. Is it really a mystery that cancer rates continue to increase? Our eating habits as a whole tend to be extremely poor and we continue to ignore the amount of research that can render cancer lifeless.
For example, here is a list of 20 medical studies that prove cannabis can be an effective treatment, and possible cure for cancer. Here, doctors at the University of Alberta discovered a cure for cancer, a substance that dramatically reduced tumors that has never seen proper attention from the medical industry due to its inability to generate a profit. The list goes on and on. The information shared in the video below is also something to ponder when thinking about both cancer and cancer cures. I am definitely open to the idea that certain cures are suppressed, and Kimberly Carter Gamble makes a good point in the video on that exact idea. At the end of the day it all comes down to making better choices in your life.
