This Disease DRIVES UP Cancer Risk 75% (SHOCKING!)
While some types of cancer are on the decline, liver cancer rates have TRIPLED in the past 40 years.
It’s estimated that last year alone, over 42,000 people were diagnosed with cancer that starts in the liver… and over 31,000 of those individuals died.
Those aren’t good odds.
The key to reversing this trend is to find out what’s causing the drastic rise in digestive cancers in the first place.
And researchers just found it.
There’s a VERY strong connection between liver cancer and a disease impacting HALF of all US adults.
In fact, people with this one health condition have a 75% higher risk of developing liver cancer.
Fortunately, it’s both treatable and preventable.
Researchers in the U.K. looked at the health data of nearly 470,000 seniors for about six years.
Their goal was to see if there was a connection between poor oral health and gastrointestinal cancers.
This is key, because “poor oral health” wasn’t defined as outright gum disease. For this study, it was defined as painful gums, bleeding gums, or loose teeth.
It turns out that there was no link between poor oral health and the overall risk of gastrointestinal cancers.
But when the researchers looked at the 10 gastrointestinal cancers individually, it was a different story.
They found that there was a link between oral health and hepatobiliary cancers, which include those that occur in the liver, gallbladder, and bile duct.
But the biggest – most shocking – connection was to hepatocellular carcinoma, a type of cancer that starts in the liver.
People with poor oral health had a 75% increased risk of developing this type of liver cancer.
This study didn’t investigate why the connection exists, but I’d put my money on bacteria. The bad bacteria from gum disease spreads throughout your body, and your liver works really hard to try to eliminate them.
But as you get older and your liver isn’t functioning like it used to, those bad bacteria hang around in the liver longer, giving them plenty of time to do plenty of damage.
The answer here is clear. You have to get rid of the bacteria overtaking your mouth.
And the best way to do that is by cutting out sugar (it feeds bacteria), and avoiding processed foods (they promote the growth of bacteria), and avoiding hydrogenated oils (they’re highly inflammatory).
