Weird Fruit SLASHES Cancer Risk 50%

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you know how devastating it can be.

And you’d do anything to prevent the disease… or to keep it from coming back.

Now, it looks like stopping cancer just got A LOT easier.

Because one simple fruit has been PROVEN to slash your cancer risk in HALF… and it may even fight cancer better than chemotherapy.

But it’s a fruit that you’re probably not eating nearly enough.

Exciting research from the University of Arizona Cancer Center has found that lemons and lemon peels are absolutely bursting with anticancer properties.

Now, lemons may not be the first fruit that you throw into your grocery cart.

But maybe they should be.

They contain 22 cancer-fighting compounds that bolster your immune system in order to effectively fight malignant cells.

You see, lemons are bursting with phytonutrients and terpenes that have been found to target cancer more effectively than chemotherapy, and without the dangerous side effects.

On terpene, called d-limonene, not only prevents cancer but destroys cancer cells that have already formed.

In the University of Arizona study, 43 women diagnosed with breast cancer were each given 2 grams of d-limonene every day for up to 6 weeks before surgery.

Not only did d-limonene consumption reduce tumor markers by 22 percent but it also suppressed the protein cyclin D1 which is linked to breast cancer growth.

What’s more? The d-limonene actually concentrated in the affected breast tissue.

It’s like the d-limonene actually knew where to go to fight cancer.

But this isn’t the only incredible anticancer benefit of lemons.

Lemon rinds contain modified citrus pectin (MCP) which has been found effective in stopping the spread of breast, prostate, and skin cancer.

The peels also contain limonoids that slow cancer growth and induce cancer cell death.

In fact, The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization of Australia estimates that consuming a high number of lemons and other citrus fruits can reduce cancer risk by more than 50 percent!

The average lemon – including the peel and the rind – contains about 300 mg of d-limonene.

Simply stock up on organic lemons and add them to salads, desserts, veggie dishes, and smoothies.

But if you’re not up for chowing down on lemon peels, d-limonene is available as a supplement from manufacturers like Wellness Resources and Natural Healthy Concepts.
