Liver Cancer Deaths Are Skyrocketing As Food Becomes Increasingly TOXIC Due To Pesticides And Herbicides

Liver cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancers in the U.S., based on data from United States Cancer Statistics: 1999-2014 Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report which was published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This chronic disease claimed about 16,000 men and 8,000 women while almost 32,000 Americans were diagnosed with the medical condition. [1]



A new report revealed that liver cancer death rates have doubled in the U.S. since the mid-1980s. Published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, the report predicted the rising incidence of liver cancer to continue through at least 2030. [2] According to the document, several risk factors contributed to the increase including the rise in obesity and type II diabetes, a higher rate of hepatitis C virus infection, and tobacco use.

The report provided a chilling landscape on the prevalence of liver cancer in the U.S. However, it failed to include another risk factor that is linked to liver cancer – pesticide exposure – which was associated with a 71 percent increased risk of liver cancer, as per a meta-analysis presented at the 2017 meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research held in Washington, District of Columbia. [3]



According to lead study author Hamdi Abdi, several studies have confirmed the influence of exposure to pesticides on the development of liver cancer. Abdi and his colleagues examined and reviewed 16 other studies, which provided information on the participants’ individual levels of pesticide exposure.

Pesticides are used in agricultural, commercial, and “home and garden” applications. Chemicals used to control pests on food crops present a danger to people who consume those foods. Many fruits and vegetables contain pesticide residues even after being washed or peeled.

There are a number of specific pesticides classified as probable causes of cancer including captafol, ethylene dibromide, glyphosate, malathion, diazinon, and dichlorophenyltrichloroethane (DDT). [4] DDT, an organochlorine pesticide, may increase the risk for hepatocellular carcinoma, says a study published in the March 2017 edition of Cancer Causes & Control. [5] Its use is restricted in many places.

Toxapene, the most heavily used insecticide in the world before it was banned in 1982, was also identified as a cancer risk. The pesticide caused increased incidence of neoplasms of liver and uterus in mice. [6]

However this might be the very tip of the iceberg: A report released by Princeton University revealed that there are 70,000 chemicals that are in commercial production in the U.S. [7] The combination effects and long term low-level exposure effects of these chemicals are in very many cases simply unknown.



The U.S. Department of Agriculture publishes an annual report on pesticide residues in fruits and vegetables that are important parts of children’s diets. These foods include apples, apple juice, carrots, grapes, green beans, peaches, potatoes, and tomatoes. The report shows which food registered greater or lesser frequencies of organophosphate pesticide residue detection. [8]

There is a growing concern over the contamination of food with agricultural chemicals. More studies are needed to develop a true dose-response curve for each chemical, that will enable researchers to gather data on the link between the dose of a chemical or drug and the effect of the chemical or drug. This information is pertinent to the determination of the level of pesticide data that is maybe associated with a certain increase in liver cancer risk.

To reduce your exposure to pesticides and other chemicals, the following tips might help:

• Purchase organically produced vegetables and fruits.
• Thoroughly wash all fruits and vegetables.
• Grow your own vegetables or fruits if you have larger space.
• Cook pork and chicken thoroughly.
• Trim visible fats from meats because many residues are fat soluble.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
