It’s never too late to reduce your cancer risk

Anna Mary Robertson "Grandma" Moses, one of the most acclaimed American folk artists, began her career at age 78. Fauja Singh thought marathons were 26 kilometers (not miles) long until he ran his first in 2000, at age 89. (He completed the London marathon in 2012 at age 101.) There’s proof positive that it’s never too late to do remarkable things — and that includes reducing your risk for cancer.

Researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the University of California, Irvine, looked at data on over 74,000 obese women (with a BMI of 30 or more) and uncovered the relationship between how many years they’d been obese and their risk for certain cancers. For every 10 years of obesity, a woman’s risk for all obesity-associated cancers went up 7 percent; postmenopausal breast cancer risk jumped 5 to 12 percent; and endometrial cancer risk increased by 20 to 36 percent.

Around 38 percent of American women and 34 percent of American men are obese, putting both genders at risk for obesity-related colorectal, esophageal, pancreatic, kidney, thyroid and gallbladder cancers!

So, in order to make sure the next decade doesn’t up your cancer risk:

-Increase your physical activity. Getting a pedometer and a walking buddy is a great first step (you’re heading for 10,000 steps a day).

-Say an absolute "no" to red meats, all added sugars and syrups, and most processed foods.

-Opt for 5-9 servings of produce daily.

You’ll see bodywide inflammation decrease as you lose weight (slowly, but surely), reduce your cancer risk and achieve a younger RealAge by at least three years!

Heart attack recovery

Usain Bolt, the Jamaican super-runner, bounced back from a foot injury to win three gold medals at the world championships in Beijing in 2015. Afterward, despite battling a hamstring tear (ouch!), he declared that he was going to win gold in Rio, and he did!

That kind of recovery is something everyone who’s had a heart attack hopes for. And now researchers have discovered one way to help that happen: load up on omega-3 fatty acids. In a study published in the journal Circulation the scientists say they discovered that 4 grams of omega-3 fatty acid daily for six months post-heart attack helps heal damaged heart tissue.

It may be that omega-3s boost development of stem cells that rush in to repair heart tissue after a heart attack (and also aid tissue repair after a stroke), resulting in fewer scars and more function, but we’re not really sure.

We’ve long recommended taking 600-900 milligrams of anti-inflammatory DHA omega-3 daily to protect your heart, brain and sex life! But don’t take more without talking to your doctor, and tell your doctor and cardiologist about ALL medications and supplements you take.

You also can get a great supply of these heart-lovin’ fats with two to three servings (3 ounces each) of DHA-loaded salmon or sea trout weekly. Three ounces of farmed Atlantic or wild King salmon delivers 1,500 mg of omega-3; 3 ounces of sea trout delivers 491 mg. Plus, 1 ounce of walnuts packs 2.5 grams of ALA omega-3s. Munch on those, and you’ll feel as energized as a Bolt of lightning!

Beware of mercury in skin-care products

Mercury was the Roman god of shopkeepers, thieves, tricksters and transporters of goods. Bingo! We’re not sure how all those centuries ago they knew what was going to be happening during the summer of 2016, but the Food and Drug Administration has caught thieves and tricksters illegally importing and selling goods (in this case various types of creams, soaps and lotions) laced with mercury.

They’re marketed as skin lighteners and anti-aging treatments to remove age spots, freckles, blemishes and wrinkles. They sneak in from around the globe, targeting Asian, Hispanic and Middle Eastern communities. They’re also promoted online.

Often the products have no ingredients listed — even no label. That should tell you something right there. But sometimes labels actually list mercury! Look for these words: mercurous chloride, mercuric, mercurio or just plain mercury.

The danger is that you’ll absorb mercury through your skin, and what accumulates can take decades to get rid of. That can trigger heart and neurological problems. If you’re nursing and use these products, you can pass mercury through your breastmilk! The mercury can quickly damage a baby’s developing brain and nervous system. Those skin products also produce mercury vapors, or you may leave residue on a towel and can make family members ill, too.

So, if you’re looking for good anti-aging treatments, try ours! Avoid the Five Food Felons, walk 10,000 steps a day, meditate for 10 minutes daily and sleep 7-8 hours a night. You’ll achieve a much younger RealAge, feel and look terrific with no harmful side effects!
