[Discovered] The REAL Cancer Trigger?!
I’ve talked a lot about antibiotic resistance recently – and for good reason.
It’s a MAJOR threat to your health that could take us back to the Dark Ages.
But antibiotic resistant superbugs are just part of the story.
It turns out that bacteria could be deadly for an entirely different reason.
In fact, they could be the underlying cause of one of the leading killers in the U.S.
When you hear the word “infection,” chances are you think of something like a sinus infection, or something that can happen to a wound.
Here’s what you probably don’t think of: Cancer.
But according to researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, infections could play a major role in the development of cancer.
In fact, they estimate that as much as 20% of all cancers are caused by infections.
Most of those are caused by viruses, but we’re now finding out that bacteria play a bigger role than anyone realized.
Researchers looked at a specific family of bacteria called mycoplasmas that have already been linked to cancer. Next, they conducted a mouse study to determine the effect of mycoplasmas on the development of lymphoma.
And what they found was SHOCKING…
The mice infected with mycoplasmas developed lymphoma EARLIER than those not infected.
The mycoplasmas released a cellular protein called DnaK, which blocks an important protein that helps repair your damaged DNA.
In other words, the presence of the mycoplasma bacteria caused changes in your body that prevent damaged DNA from being repaired – and damaged DNA is a major cause of cancer development.
They also found that a bacterial infection could prevent cancer drugs from working.
It’s bad enough that the bacteria caused changes that contributed to cancer. But it gets worse.
Because these changes continued to be in effect long after the bacteria themselves had been removed.
And the worst part? Mycoplasmas likely aren’t the only bacteria that share these cancer-promoting properties.
This highlights more than ever the importance of making sure you never have to deal with a bacterial infection.
The best way to do that is to make sure your immune system is firing on all cylinders. And the best ways to do that?
Wash your hands often and make sure you’re getting plenty of sunlight.
This is the greatest source of vitamin D, which is critical for a strong immune system.
Morning light also sets your circadian clock for the day, which makes sure your immune system is functioning properly.
Properly set circadian clocks also allow us to get restful sleep — another critical factor for optimal immune system repair.
And if you do develop an infection and your doctor gives you antibiotics, TAKE THE ENTIRE COURSE.
NOT doing this is a major contributor to antibiotic resistance.
