THIS Condition DRIVES UP Your Cancer Risk 66%
People used to think that cancer was genetic. In other words… inevitable.
But the more we learn about cancer – and your genes – the more we’ve learned that there are many factors that influence your risk of cancer.
Things like your diet, environment, chemical exposure, and nutrient deficiencies can play a role in who gets cancer and who doesn’t.
That means that you have more control over whether or not you develop cancer than we ever realized.
Now we’ve learned that having one particular condition can increase your risk of cancer by up to 66%.
Fortunately, there are some ways to combat it.
Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is an autoimmune disease, which means that your body attacks itself.
In this case, it’s the central nervous system that is impacted, which leads to symptoms ranging from problems with vision, to arm and leg movement, to balance.
It’s a progressive disease, and there is no cure.
Unfortunately, the bad news for these individuals keeps piling on… because a recent study showed that people with MS have a much higher risk of developing cancer.
Researchers looked at the records of nearly 7,000 MS patients born between 1930-1979 and followed them for up to 65 years. Then they compared this group to more than 48,000 people without MS.
Compared to people without MS, those with MS had a
- 66% increased risk of respiratory cancer
- 52% increased risk of central nervous system cancer
- 51% increased risk of urinary cancer
- 14% increased risk of developing any kind of cancer.
The benefit of knowing that you’re at an increased risk of cancer is that you can be on high alert for symptoms – and also get tested more frequently – in order to catch any developing cancers as soon as possible.
Now, this kind of study doesn’t evaluate why there’s an increased risk… just that it exists. But I have a few ideas.
Studies have consistently shown that MS patients are low in vitamin D. And studies have also shown that having low levels of vitamin D increases your risk of developing advanced cancers.
Specifically, people with levels below 24 ng/mL are three times more likely to have stage three cancer.
I’m not saying that low levels of vitamin D is the reason MS patients have an increased risk of cancer. But there’s enough evidence about MS, vitamin D, and cancer to warrant getting your blood levels of vitamin D checked.
If they’re anywhere below 60 ng/mL, take active steps to increase your levels. The most important step is to spend more time outside.
After that, be sure to incorporate more vitamin D-rich foods in your diet, like salmon, sardines, eggs, liver, and cheese.
And the last step would be to add a vitamin D supplement.
When it comes to all aspects of MS, getting enough vitamin D is one of the most critical things you can do for your health.
