Stress Fuels Cancer Growth?!
Nothing good comes from chronic stress.
Stress causes a chain reaction of events in your body that can lead to moodiness, sleeplessness, and upset stomach in the short term—and depression, cardiovascular disease, sexual dysfunction, and more in the long run.
Yes, it can even increase the risk of cancer.
I could tell you to work on cutting out the stress in your life.
But if that’s not going to happen anytime soon, there’s something else you can do.
Scientists have found ONE KEY NUTRIENT that can help prevent stress-induced breast cancer.
Before researchers could find a way to stop stress from causing cancer, they first had to find out how stress impacts tumors development to begin with.
After exposing mice to a stressful situation, they injected them with cancer cells. The first thing researchers saw was that the tumors in the stressed mice grew faster and got larger than in unstressed mice.
Next, they found that the stressed mice had high levels of epinephrine, which seemed to fuel the tumor growth. It did this by making a protein called lactate dehydrogenase, which helps fuel cancer cells.
Researchers confirmed this finding in actual breast cancer patients. It turned out that those with higher epinephrine had more lactate dehydrogenase in their tumors, and also had lower survival rates.
In other words, stress essentially fuels tumor growth.
But after testing numerous compounds, the researchers identified one key nutrient that can help BLOCK stress-induced tumor growth.
It’s not a drug, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
It’s simply vitamin C.
Injecting tumors with vitamin C decreased the production of lactate dehydrogenase—and more importantly, it caused the tumors to shrink.
This just adds yet another impressive bullet point to vitamin C’s already impressive resume of health benefits.
These include boosting the immune system, lowering high blood pressure, lowering the risk of heart disease, helping prevent gout attacks, helping prevent cognitive decline, and much more.
To make sure you’re getting enough vitamin C in your diet, don’t just reach for oranges. Vitamin C is found in plenty of foods too, like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, and papayas.
