Cancer PreventionPosted on the 15 March 2011 by Medicineman
So, is there anything we can do to prevent cancer from developing in the first place? Fortunately there is.
There are some drugs on the market to prevent cancer but are mainly meant for a specific population that is at a high risk of developing certain cancer types. Reasons most of these drugs are not used with a wider range of people are many serious side effects.
Nevertheless, some drugs have shown to decrease the risk for cancer and have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for cancer prevention. These include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and also the hormonal antagonists Tamoxifen and Raloxifene.
Besides those pharmaceutical solutions there are also some a bit more natural alternatives. Recent studies show that food is a powerful factor in the fight against cancer. Did you know that broccoli is a vegetable with the strongest anti-cancer effects on a wide intestine, lungs, stomach and breasts?
A half a cup of broccoli a day should have a very positive effect on the whole body.
