This Mouth Problem Makes Cancer EVEN WORSE!
No one choosesto go a few rounds with colon cancer.
Despite recent advances in mainstream “care,” it’s still one of the worst killers around… expected to claim 50,000 American lives this year alone…
And for years, docs have been MISSING part of what makes the disease so deadly.
But no more.
Because just-out research has FINALLY revealed the culprit behind aggressive colon cancer, a unique form of mouth bacteria that’s making your disease HARDER TO BEAT…
By helping cancer cells GROW.
It’s called Fusobacterium nucleatum, and while your doc’s probably never heard of it, your dentist certainly has… because this bacterium is infamous for contributing to dental plaque and tooth decay.
Recently, though, scientists have started to find ties to bigger health issues… linking its presence in the gastrointestinal tract to inflammatory bowel disease and as many as 1 in 3 cases of colon cancer.
But in the study, a multi-faceted report published in the journal EMBO Reports, Columbia University researchers took things a step further, diving deep into WHY this relationship exists.
They used cell cultures, in vitro methods, and a mouse model to identify two vital pieces of information:
- F. nucleatum creates a molecule (called FadA adhesin) that not only triggers a cancer signaling pathway… but STIMULATES the growth of cancer cells.
- The bacterium is also closely tied to a cancer-growing protein called Annexin A1, INCREASING its production and boosting its effect on cancer cells.
Put simply, researchers say the bacterium completes a feedback loop that KEEPS CANCER GOING… which might explain why mainstream treatments have such a hard time keeping up…
And while the researchers didn’t propose any concrete solutions for this problem, a previous study – published in in Scientific Reports – found that polyphenol compounds from black and green teas may be able to inhibit the bacterium’s activity.
That study focused on F. nucleatum in oral issues like tooth decay and halitosis (bad breath), but each of the compounds tested were shown to BLOCK its growth… displaying their potent anti-bacterial potential.
Plus, a medley of other cell and animal studies have suggested that green tea may help fight – even PREVENT– colon cancer by limiting its spread, minimizing cellular damage, and KILLING OFF cancer cells.
Look for it bagged or loose at your local grocery store – and drink up. Many studies suggest that you’ll need to drink at least three cups of green tea a day to get that sort of protection.
