Cancer Treatments CAUSING Dementia?!
There’s no way around it: Big Pharma is Big Business.
I have no problem with people making money. But I do have a problem when the bottom line comes at the expense of my health – and yours.
How else do you explain the horrific side effects that come with so-called safe, approved drug treatments?
Case in point: A common drug used to treat cancer can actually increase your risk of dementia.
Here’s what you need to know to stay safe (and not contribute to the money machine).
Prostate cancer is what’s called hormone-driven cancer, which means that androgen hormones like testosterone can actually fuel its growth.
(It’s a cruel irony.)
To cut off cancer’s food supply, Big Pharma came up with a drug treatment called androgen deprivation therapy, which essentially stops you from producing those hormones.
No hormones, no cancer growth.
It sounds good in theory.
But besides being the equivalent of chemical castration (say goodbye to your testicles… they’ll all but disappear, along with your manhood and your sex life), androgen deprivation therapy has another less than desirable side effect:
It can make you lose your mind.
In a study from JAMA Network, researchers evaluated over 150,000 senior men who were diagnosed with prostate cancer and followed them for at least 10 years.
They found that the men who had been given androgen deprivation therapy had a 20% increased risk of dementia, and a 14% increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
The more doses a man received, the higher his risk of these brain-robbing disorders – a scary fact that only strengthens the cause and effect relationship.
The worst part about these findings is that most men with prostate cancer don’t need any treatment at all – much less one that will steal their manhood and their mind.
You see, most prostate cancer is slow-growing and non-life threatening. When this is the case, doing nothing at all is the best course of action.
If you’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer, before making any kind of rash treatment plans, talk to your doctor about getting a test like the 4KScore test, which can assess just how aggressive your cancer is.
Then you can decide on the best course of action – and whether the risks are worth it or not.
P.S. Stay tuned! Tomorrow I’m going to tell you about a revolutionary new test that can diagnose aggressive prostate cancer 5 years sooner.
