Conquer Your Cancer Risk

Thursday, 08 Nov 2012 08:29 AM


In "Wild Hogs," Tim Allen and Martin Lawrence thought they could reclaim their youth and vitality on the seat of a Harley. But unless they were popping multivitamins as they cruised cross country, they weren't likely to gain much more than saddles sores from the 4,000-mile trip.

A 14-year study of more than 14,000 middle-age male doctors (safe bet there's a few Harley owners in the group) reveals that taking a daily multi cuts the risk of cancer by 8 percent — and, if you factor out prostate cancer (it accounted for half the cancers, which in many cases were caught early and treated effectively), a steady supply of vitamins and minerals is a lot more powerful cancer deterrent than that.

So how can a guy grab this advantage? We say, take your multivitamin and then rev up your health with even more cancer-proofing nutrition and supplements.

The foods that cool: Reduce inflammation, strengthen your immune system, and ride roughshod over your cancer risk by eliminating trans fats, most saturated fats, all added sugars and sugar syrups, and any grain that's not 100 percent whole. Now don't slow down! Add in phytonutrient and antioxidant-rich veggies like kale, Brussels sprouts, spinach, and broccoli, and lycopene-packing tomatoes. Choose fruits loaded with cancer-fighting lupeol: grapes, mangoes, and strawberries.

Super-boosters: Take 900 milligrams of DHA omega-3 a day. If your D-3 levels are OK (a blood test will tell you) get 1,000 IU a day from food and supplements. Make it 1,200 after age 60.

That'll get your motor runnin'...
