You need to keep your body filters cleared of dirt!
Do you ever stop to think, when taking a pee, where that golden liquid comes from and how precious it is to you?
Kidney cancers are significantly on the rise. In fact up by 50% in the years between 1991 and 2006. Not surprisingly, since most cancers are caused by xenobiotics and our kidneys have to filter more and more hostile chemical junk to protect us.
It’s not just a boomer thing: the cancer increase is across all age groups, as you would expect if environmental toxins were to blame. In fact more younger people are getting diagnosed now than ever before (up from 45.9% in 1991 to 55.3% in 2006.
It has been suggested that some of the rise comes from an increased rate of detection, due to CT scans. Today practically everyone who comes into ER with a complaint such as a belly ache is given a CT scan. Small kidney cancers that might have gone unnoticed are thus being detected.
But that can’t explain the trend entirely, because the rise in cases began before the use of CT scans became prevalent. It’s a genuine trend.
Other worrying findings:
• In people aged 20 to 39, new kidney cancer cases rose on average from 4.5% annually during 1975-1990 to 5.2% during 1991-2006. That may not sound much but it’s not a 0.7% increase, it’s actually a 15% increase.• Overall, there were 7.4 new cases of kidney cancer per 100,000 adults in 1975 vs. 17.6 per 100,000 adults in 2006. That’s a 237% increase in 31 years.
The information was presented at the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium last week and have not yet been subject to “peer review”1.What is very clear is that our kidneys are under increasing attack and are very vulnerable. This study did not address any of the many other disease which lead to kidney failure; just cancer. But these too are on the rise.
You should worry about your kidneys. You should worry a lot in fact!
Along with the liver, our kidneys are a master filtering system that is our main defence between ourselves and the toxic environment we live in.
Don’t think a kidney transplant will save you. There are not enough kidneys to go round and people die every year, waiting for a kidney that never came.
If you are cocky enough to think you can buy your way to the front of the waiting queue, here is something else you need to know: kidney transplants are accompanied by a significant risk of skin cancer, carried by the transplant process.
In the United States alone, an estimated 100,000 living kidney transplant recipients are at risk to develop cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma [malignant tumors occurring in the skin that can spread to other organs],” according to Dr. June K. Robinson, of the Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.
She and her team have just concluded a study on the success of training kidney cancer transplant patients to self-examine and seek out skin cancer, before it gets a grip. You were probably never told these two big negatives, when you last read about the “success” of kidney transplants.
It’s true, you last longer on average that dialysis patients. But it’s still a miserable end-game (chess term).
“The educational intervention effectively increased awareness of the kidney transplant recipients’ risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma and provided sufficient training to enhance self-efficacy in their ability to detect an area of concern,” the researchers concluded2.
That’s why I produced for you a pair of fabulous eBooks that go to the heart of the health problems we face from what I call the “chemical blizzard”. Kidneys and liver are our two major “filter organs” that take out the bad stuff. You need to keep your filters clean!
Both liver and kidneys are facing a world we doctors hardly imagined half a century ago. A lot of medical thinking and awareness is seriously out of date; it’s yesterday’s science in fact—and could kill you.
Bag yourself a copy of both eBooks, sold together, for the low- low price of just $24.95 for the pair. That’s less than $13 each!
For a book that could—and probably will—save your life, I think that’s very little money.
