Five Unorthodox Ways Of Preventing Cancer

antioxidants

There are many well-known ways of preventing cancer risk that you are probably sick of hearing about by now – diet, exercise, vitamins. Increased intake of antioxidants is always a favorite.

But what if there are other odd, simple and fun tactics, most of which don’t cost you a dime of money or an ounce of sweat? Here are some truly strange and amazing methods of cancer prevention. We would be astounded if you have heard of them all!

Soak and Baste

Believe it or not, you can fight cancer at your next barbecue – by marinating or basting the meat before cooking.

Heterocyclic amines, a DNA-damaging compound, can be found in grilled meat. This substance can contribute to many cancers. Studies show that eating charred meat too often can increase your risk of pancreatic cancer by up to 60 percent. But never fear – you don’t need to skip your next grilled steak. Marinating in beer or wine for a couple of hours before cooking will reduce the harm.

Drink (a Little)

Everyone knows the health risks associated with drinking too much. But did you know that drinking too little can increase your cancer risk? A study in Belfast recently showed that a moderate amount of alcohol (one or two servings a day) can help defend the body against the bacterium Helicobacter Pylori, which can cause ulcers and even stomach cancer!

Too much alcohol can increase the danger as well, so go easy – but yes, there is a tumor-fighting benefit in that after-dinner glass of wine.

Avoid the Dry Cleaner’s!

Mitch Hedberg once joked about seeing a sign at his dry cleaners, “Sorry, We’re Closed” at 4 AM. “It would be ridiculous for me to assume it would be open. No need to be sorry,” he joshed.

But in reality, perhaps they shouldn’t have been apologizing due to another reason. Many dry cleaning services use perchloroethylene, a chemical which contributes to cancer risk in the liver and other organs. Experts warn that if you have your clothes dry cleaned, you should at least air them out before wearing – and get rid of the plastic they came in.

Future Research Possibilities

Many different peptides are currently being scientifically researched for different healthful benefits. Melanotan-2 is a synthetic peptide that has been shown to help suppress the appetite. Scientific studies on animal research subjects have shown that Melanotan-2 has the potential to help burn fat, increase energy and sex drive, while at the same time stimulating the melanocyte receptors which cause tanning. The Melanotan-2  peptide is still under scientific research and development. .

Shorten your Manicure

This one might really seem too hard to believe. You can reduce your risk of developing cancer by having less pretty nails?

Yes. Research actually shows that receiving a high number of ultraviolent drying sessions at your nail salon produces an increased risk of skin cancer. Drying machines that emit large amounts of radiation can damage your DNA with as few as 8 visits over a 4-year period. If you are opposed to air-drying your nails after a manicure, doctors advise using sunscreen on your hands before visiting the salon.

These methods may seem unorthodox – but it beats force-feeding yourself sauerkraut or gallons of green tea. Remember there are many hidden ways to help your body fight the risk, so keep learning!
