What is Cancer?
Cancer is a class of diseases or disorders characterized by uncontrolled division of cells and the ability of these cells to spread, either by direct growth into adjacent tissue through invasion, or by implantation into distant sites by metastasis (where cancer cells are transported through the bloodstream or lymphatic system). Cancer may affect people at all ages, but risk tends to increase with age. It is one of the principal causes of death in developed countries.
Causes of Cancer:
An increasing number of people are developing cancer, mainly because of population growth and ageing, and other population changes such as the increase in obesity, decreasing physical activity, insufficient fruit and vegetable intakes and lowered immune systems.
It has been estimated that 40% of all deaths in the developed world may be attributable to suboptimal diet and physical activity levels. Improved immune system, nutrition and physical activity could help prevent many cancer deaths. Lack of physical activity, poor nutrition and obesity can independently increase the risk of cancer; collectively they can have an effect that is of similar magnitude to tobacco.
The Effects of Diet & Physical Activity on Cancer:
Research shows that increasing fruit and vegetable intake will reduce the risk of developing some cancers. Research supports a positive association between vegetable and fruit consumption and the prevention of cancer at various sites. Cancer is not prevented by any one individual fruit or vegetable. It is the consumption of a variety of fruit and vegetables that is protective.
Wholegrains and fibre are the two components of the cereal group that have the greatest impact in cancer prevention. Chose wholegrain and wholemeal breads, cereals and grain products.
Maintaining a healthy body weight and being physically active for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week, including some vigorous activity is beneficial in cancer prevention. If drinking alcohol, do so in moderation. Increase intake of fibre, fish, n-3 fatty acids, carotenoids, vitamin B2, B6, folate, B12, C, D, E, calcium, zinc and selenium.
The Benefits of Noni:
The guidelines for reducing cancer risk are consistent with the guidelines for coronary heart disease prevention, diabetes prevention as well as general health promotion. The basis for good health is good nutrition, regular exercise and, most importantly, a first-rate immune system. Our health is directly influenced by our immune system. The onset of almost all infectious and degenerative disease is preceded or accompanied by inadequate immune response.
The immune system is not responsive to drugs for healing. Antibiotics and treatments used to fight infections and illnesses actually depress the immune system when used long-term. But the natural nutritive forces of Noni can and do support the immune system. By rebuilding immunity, health is naturally restored and disease disappears. If health and immunity are thereafter conscientiously maintained, the individual is no longer vulnerable to disease.
It is never too late to enjoy the health benefit that taking a daily dose of Noni Juice gives you. With the correct diet, exercise and by drinking Noni Juice daily, the immune system can be restored and maintained at a level that provides good health well into the Golden Years.
