Cancer Causes
Cause of cancer, in general, could be due to many factors including smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, viruses, bacterias infection, radiation, lack of activities, genetic factors, bad diet, carcinogens,  chemicals, toxins present in the atmosphere, work hazard, and abestos.

There could be one or multiple reasons that one gets cancer. There are still many unknowns there, but the good thing to know is that not long ago, many cancers were once fatal, are now curable and treatable than ever before.

Vitamin D and Cancer Prevention

Vitamin D has been shown to block the growth of cancer cells.  75% of colon and breast cancers can be prevented if vitamin D levels in blood maintains between

40-60 ng/ml, according to research published by Dr. Cedric F. Garland, University of California San Diego, School of Medicine.  75% - 80% of people in the United States have below normal rang of vitamin D in their body.

Breast Cancer and Vitamin D levels

According to observational studies, the rate of breast cancer decreases by about 30% when vitamin D levels are greater than 40 ng/mL comparing to lower levels of 20 ng/ml.It appears that, risk of getting breast cancer decreases substantially as vitamin D levels increase from very low levels (less than 10 ng/ml) to 20-30 ng/ml, then that rate decreases at a slower paste until levels of around 50 ng/ml.

Higher Cancer Cases in Western Countries

Reported cancer cases in the United States and other western countries are four times higher than those of third world countries. The same research believes the main reason is due to the life style and more cosumption of key food that have long history of medicinal properties which they fight cancerous cells at molecular levels.
  • One in every four people die from cancer in the United States!

  • 30-35% of all cancer deaths are due to obesity, bad diet, and physical inactivity.

  • 90-95% of all cancers are due to environmental factors, and the other 5-10% are genetics.



Let's Together Fight Cancer

AND Make A Difference!

  • One in every eight women gets breast cancer!
  • 75% of breast and colon cancer deaths could be prevented if vitamin D range in blood would be between 40-60 ng/ml.
  • Smoking is related to more than twenty types of cancer. Smoking also increases the risk of  getting heart diseases and stroke.
  • 1 of 5 deaths in USA is due to smoking, depending on the recent studies of the Center of Disease Control and prevention.
  • Studies shows that healthy diet and physical activity are important key factors to reduce the long term risk of cancer.
  • In general, cancer cells are fed and love sugar or glucose. Carbohydrates are converted to glucose in your body, cutting sugar  and carbohydrates in your diet will eventually upset and destroy cancerous cells.
