Title: The #1 Cause Of Cancer
Post by: danialthomas on July 04, 2020, 04:06:14 pm
Do you know the #1 cause of cancer? Hint: It is not poor diet, stress, family history, or environmental toxins. Then what is it? It is age.

Increasing age is the most significant risk factor for cancer. A growing body of evidence supports the hypothesis that by slowing the aging process, you may delay or prevent the onset or recurrence of cancer and other chronic disease. Slowing aging centers around changes in diet and lifestyle to improve mitochondrial function; promote effective immunity; increase microcirculation and tissue oxygenation; promote tissue alkalinity; enhance detoxification; improve gut health; reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exposure to environmental toxins; and promote sound sleep, physical fitness, and good mental health. Together, this helps create a more tumor-resistant environment in the body.

So why is increasing age is the most significant risk factor for cancer? Besides immune decline, aging enables the emergence of tumors through the onset of cell-cycle arrest (senescence) of aging fibroblasts, which makes them prone to autophagy. Senescence-induced autophagy creates a permissive metabolic microenvironment for tumor initiation and growth through the production of high-energy mitochondrial fuels from fibroblasts—such as lactate and ketones—that feed nascent (emerging) cancer cells. Senescent fibroblasts can also stimulate tumor formation and promote its growth and spread through the production of inflammation-signaling molecules. To help prevent the onset or recurrence of cancer, in addition to changes in diet and lifestyle, it important to eradicate aged, autophagy-prone, senescent fibroblasts. To learn more, visit
