[WARNING] Is Your Lower Back Pain DEADLY?

Dear Reader,

Aging is no walk in the park.

Some mornings you wake up creaking like an old ship… and other days you feel like a 30-year-old again.

But if you suffer from chronic lower back pain, those “feeling young” days are few and far between.

And before you chalk it up to just getting older, there’s something you need to know.

Because that lower back pain could be a telltale sign of this HIDDEN danger.

Research now shows that lower back pain could be a symptom of cancer.

And not just one type… three.

A survey of studies has shown that lower back pain could be your first sign of lung, prostate, and spinal cancer.

And though the chances are low, it’s important to know what to look for.

First, let’s talk about lung cancer. This is the most common type of cancer, and it effects smokers AND non-smokers alike.  (In fact, 50 percent of lung cancer patients are non-smokers.)

If you start experiencing breathlessness, pain with coughing, or coughing up blood, it’s time to get to the doctor.

The symptoms for prostate cancer are a little different. If you’re experiencing back pain coupled with pain in your hips, ribs, and spine, you could be at risk.

Spinal cancer is, thankfully, extremely rare, but it’s still important to know the signs. If you notice that your muscles are feeling very weak and you’re having trouble walking, it may be time to get a second opinion.

Though you shouldn’t live your life full of worry, it’s always  good to be aware of what’s happening with your body.

And since pain is a sign of inflammation, which can cause cancer, it’s never a bad idea to be proactive.

To relieve your pain in the meantime, try some light yoga. There are many good, free resources on the web that can guide you through gentle stretching to relieve your pain.

And in the meantime, tackle inflammation by taking a daily curcumin supplement. Not only will it calm inflammation, it can also help banish your pain. You can find a curcumin supplement at Vitacost.com.
