Discovered! A Hidden Cause of Cancer?!
We’ve learned a lot about cancer over the years.
But while we still have a long way to go in figuring out how to treat it, we certainly know a lot about how to prevent it.
Like the connection between smoking and lung cancer.
Or how obesity has been tied to at least 13 different types of cancer.
Now, researchers have made an important new discovery about your gut.
And it could help you avoid one of the worst cancers around.
Research into the importance of gut health has exploded in recent years.
Your microbiome is made up of billions of bacteria. And having more good bacteria than bad, and plenty of diversity, is essential to good health.
Now, a study from researchers at the University of Michigan has shown how poor gut health can increase your risk of developing one of the most lethal types of cancer in men and women: colorectal cancer.
For this study, two different groups of mice were exposed to a carcinogen. Then the second group was also exposed to an agent that promotes gastrointestinal inflammation.
The second group of mice developed three times more tumors than the first group.
A closer look at the fecal matter from the two different groups of mice showed that they had some pretty distinct differences in gut bacteria.
The researchers dug a bit deeper to find out why the differences in gut bacteria would have such a dramatic impact on tumor formation.
What they found was that in these mice, there were more T cells and CD8+ cells in the colon tissue.
This seemed strange at first, since these are immune cells that typically help prevent cancer. But the researchers think that overstimulating these cells promotes inflammation and essentially wears these cells out—which then opens the door for cancer to grow unchecked.
Whatever the underlying reason, there’s no denying the tremendous impact gut health has on every area of health—including cancer.
And it highlights the importance of taking steps to maintain good gut health.
That means limiting your consumption of sugars and processed foods, and taking a quality probiotic.

One of the biggest pitfalls of mainstream medicine is that it is primarily symptom-based. They have a separate drug to treat every symptom you can imagine.
