[Alert] Urgent Cancer Warning for Seniors!
When you think of things that cause cancer, the usual suspects come to mind.
Smoking… processed foods… and household chemicals to name a few.
And that’s why you avoid those things.
But no matter how hard you try to avoid cancer-causing foods or substances, you’re still vulnerable to this top killer if you have a certain condition.
It already affectsthousands of seniors… but you don’t have to be the next one.
Here’s what you need to know
By the time you’re 50 years old, your strength starts to take a nosedive.
It’s technically called sarcopenia.
And you might think it’ll only impact how much weight you can carry, or how far you can walk.
But according to a recent study, sarcopenia can increase your risk of dying from cancer.
In a recent study, researchers found that patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer who also had sarcopenia were much less likely to respond to treatment with a cancer drug called a programmed death (PD)-1 inhibitor.
PD-1 inhibitors work by supercharging your own immune system’s ability to fight cancer cells. It’s a great idea, but there’s a catch.
The drug depends on a strong immune system to do the heavy lifting. If your immune system isn’t up to snuff, the drug is virtually useless.
Muscle loss is associated with a dysregulated immune systemand is also associated with poor outcomes in numerous types of cancer. Because of this, it can hinder the effectiveness of the PD-1 inhibitors.
In this particular study, the researchers found that only 10.1% of those who had sarcopenia at the start of treatment were in remission at the end of one year.
But in those who didn’t have sarcopenia, nearly 40% were in remission.
What this means is that muscle loss greatly reduces your body’s ability to fight cancer – while also hindering the effectiveness of this particular cancer treatment.
Does that mean you need to become a gym rat to ward off age-related muscle loss?
No, but it DOES mean you should be doing everything you can to prevent sarcopenia. And the three easiest ways to do that are to exercise, eat more protein, and get more vitamin D.
By taking steps to boost your strength, you’ll also be boosting your body’s ability to fight cancer.
