Cancer is an ugly word. It seems like there are more and more people getting diagnosed with some form of cancer everyday. We all know the damage it can do to our lives and others around us. So, before we dive into how to get rid of these cells, lets first learn what cancer is and how it survives and grows.

What is Cancer?

Cancer is where a group of abnormal cells grow and hijack the body’s normal, balanced system of angiogenesis (healthy blood vessel growth). The tumor needs nutrients and oxygen to grow and spread. It does this by sending chemical signals that stimulate blood vessel growth in the area, in turn allowing blood, oxygen and nutrients to be sent to the tumor to continue growing.

There is lots of great research out there explaining this process and how to stop it.

Dr. Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer, particularly anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor.

The crucial first (and best) stepEating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game. It’s like scoping out a competitor before the big game. Once you know how to beat them, you can put your game plan into action and work towards that victory.

Resveratrol Protects the Heart

Pre-conditions the heart and brain from damage caused by strokes and heart attacks. Does this by raising the activity of heme-oxygenase, a protective antioxidant enzyme that is usually activated after heart attacks and strokes. This means individuals can sustain a heart attack or stroke and suffer small or no adverse consequences.*

Prevents blood clots that cause strokes and heart attacks by inhibiting the enzyme phosphoinositide 3-kinase.

Increases the activity of an enzyme called human endothelial nitric oxide synthase which then produces nitric oxide, an agent that widens blood vessels and controls blood pressure.*
