In the US, men have a 1 in 2 lifetime risk of developing cancer, and for women the risk is 1 in 3.

Micronutrients can prevent mutation and cancer
                                                                                                    A paper (J Nucleic Acids 2010 Sep 22; pii 725071 and also in the prestigious peer reviewed Pubmed) from the Nutrition and Metabolism Center at the Children´s Hospital, Oakland, California (Ames B N ) has summarised three of their recent research studies and concluded that optimising micronutrient intake will in turn optimise metabolism, decrease DNA damage and result in less cancer as well as other degenerative diseases associated with ageing.   The three studies looked at

  1. The delay of mitochondrial decay through ageing and free-radical damage could be minimised by supplementation with lipoic acid and acetyl carnitine.
  2. How even modest micronutrient deficiencies (common in much of the population) accelerate molecular aging, including DNA damage and mitochondrial decay. This work included an in-depth analysis of vitamin K that suggests the importance of achieving optimal micronutrient intake for longevity.
  3. The finding that a loss of enzyme function can result from protein deformation and loss of function due to an age-related decline in membrane fluidity or mutation. The loss of enzyme function can be compensated by a high dietary intake of any of the B vitamins.

Researchers concluded that ´optimising micronutrient intake could have a major effect on the prevention of cancer and other degenerative diseases of ageing

  1. A life time of experience has proved over and over that proper nutrition has everything to do with physical, emotional, and mental health. You can search everywhere for the right thing to take, supplement, have a healthy eating program to get sufficient nutrition, and still fall short. Plus, we are being exposed to more health threats now, in our modern environment, than ever before in history. After a lifetime of searching, I have landed on something! ONE thing, that truly helps the WHOLE BODY heal, can be completely absorbed by anybody, at a reasonable price, and is simple and easy to take! That is MMF! I will recomend it to anyone! A.L.
