On Saturday, I told you about the ridiculous cancer study that suggested two-thirds of all cancer have no clear cause. The researchers said these cancers are due to "bad luck." This study contradicted a study in the New England Journal of Medicine that clearly showed how cancers are made by environmental factors, not caused by genetics or bad luck. So now that you know this new study is hogwash, let's look at a supplement that has a great track-record for preventing breast cancer (and many other cancers).
One of the biggest causes of breast cancer is high levels of carcinogenic toxins in women. And Devra Lee Davis, a professor at the Carnegie Mellon University, found Canadian and Danish studies that show how these toxins appear years before the cancer diagnosis.
These studies found that the toxins are found in cured meat, some red meat, plastic, synthetic pesticides, cigarette smoke, and car exhausts. When you look at the list of possible cancer-causing toxins, you might feel like you can't possibly avoid them. You can't. But there is good news. God created your body to handle toxins. Your body was designed to remove these toxins through a detoxification process called glucaronidation. And there is a supplement that can encourage this process and help your body avoid getting overwhelmed by toxins.

The nutrient is calcium
d-glucarate. This is a natural substance you can find in fruits and vegetables. Calcium d-glucarate is glucarate attached to calcium. Researchers have found that glucarate binds itself to harmful environmental pollutants and removes these unwanted materials from your body. The calcium is a carrier that allows glucarate to stay in your body longer and, therefore, be more effective. Without the calcium, the glucarate would stay in your body for about an hour. But with the calcium, it can stay in your body for up to five hours!
One of the world's leading researchers on calcium d-glucarate is Thomas Slaga, PhD. He has conducted much of the research we've seen on glucarate in the past 20 years. Back in 1999, Dr. Slaga published his short book, D-Glucarate: A Nutrient Against Cancer. In that book, Dr. Slaga shows how this powerful nutrient can prevent breast cancer, as well as lung, colon, liver, bladder, skin, and prostate cancers.
What's interesting about calcium d-glucarate is that it does more than enhance this detoxification pathway. It also lowers estrogen levels, which is why it's so effective in sex-organ cancers, especially breast and prostate cancer. It does so by binding to excess estrogen, much like it does the toxins, and removes it from your body.
So if you're concerned about toxins in your body — and most of us should be — then consider taking 200-2,000 mg of calcium d-glucarate daily (depending on your cancer risk). For women concerned about breast cancer, consider taking calcium d-glucarate along with other breast-protective nutrients, such as selenium, turmeric, and DIM. You can find all of these and other great breast-cancer-fighting nutrients in Ultimate Breast Support from Advanced Bionutritionals.
