foods that fight cancer

It’s not an uncommon thought to be deeply afraid of getting cancer. More than 1.25 million new cases of invasive cancer are diagnosed each year while an additional of 1.5 million cases of noninvasive cancers will be diagnosed. Heartbreakingly, more than 500,000 people will die from cancer each year.

To fully understand how to support the body and prevent cancer, we’ll begin by looking at the connection between cells and cancer. Your body contains trillions of cells and within each cell is a central core called the nucleus. Inside the nucleus lies the key to life, deoxyribonucleic acid, better known as DNA. Our DNA contains the instructions that each cell needs to make its vital proteins and replicate itself.

You have a lot to process when you receive a cancer diagnosis. Part of that discussion can include a decision about off-label treatment options.

You’re probably familiar with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Their research determines a drug therapy’s safety and its designated use.

Simply put, an off-label treatment would involve use of a specific (FDA approved) drug for a purpose other than the FDA designation. A drug’s secondary use is therefore not listed on its “label”.

For example, you’ll notice a few things when examining a drug’s label.
