Published on

Antioxidants, whether obtained from food or nutritional supplements can reduce the risk of many types of cancer, as well as provide other health benefits. Supplementation, if done correctly, is both safe and effective ...along with a Healthy Diet can Maintain Good Health.

Transcript of "Antioxidants Can Reduce Risk of Cancer by Michael McNamara"

  1. 1. Cancer Reduction with Nutritional Supplementation by Michael McNamara
  2. 2. We are Continually Exposed to DNA- Damaging Free Radicals. Free Radicals Cause Oxidiation!
  3. 3. Free Radicals ―Steal‖ Electrons “Healthy Atoms” Have Balanced Electrons, and are Stable. “Free Radicals” are Missing an Electron, and Seek To “Steal” Electrons from Healthy Atoms
  4. 4. Oxidation Causes Browning of Apples Oxygen Free Radicals “Steal” Electrons from Healthy Atoms Causing Damage, as Seen with Browning of Apple Exposed to Air NormalOxidized
  5. 5. Oxidation Causes Damage to Cells: Cell Membranes, Cellular Organelles, and DNA Damaged DNA Can Lead to Mutations that “Code” for Uncontrolled Growth; i.e., Cancer! Free Radicals
  6. 6. Cancer Development Angiogenesis Signals to create blood vessels to feed cancer Propagation, Metastasis Cancer cells spread beyond local site Initiation Oxidative damage to DNA; mutation occurs
  7. 7. DNA Oxidative Damage Causes Mutations that Lead to Cancer! Breast Prostate Colon Skin
  8. 8. Cancer • Lung • Prostate • Cervix Heart Disease Stroke Arthritis Diabetes Smoking Increases Oxidative Damage These Disease Affect Non-Smokers Too! Everyone is Exposed to Oxidative Damage. Some More than Others!
  9. 9. The ―Antidote‖ to Oxidation are Anti-Oxidants! Antioxidants Donate Electrons Free Radicals Become “Neutralized”
  10. 10. Antioxidants that Protect Against Cancer Turmeric Extract (Curcurmin) Grape Seed Extract Olive Extract Co-Enzyme Q10 Vitamin D Vitamin E Vitamin C And Many, Many More….
  11. 11. Antioxidants are Found in Food And Nutritional Supplements Vitamin A Vitamin B Vitamin C Vitamin D Vitamin E Fish Oil Grape Seed Extract Resveratrol Co-Enzyme Q10 Turmeric Extract Green Tea Extract
  12. 12. Fish Oil: Omega-3 Fatty Acids (EPA / DHA) • Heart Health • Joint Health • Breast Cancer Protection • Prostate Cancer Protection • Brain & Nerves • Pregnancy
  13. 13. Largest Study in Medical History 29,000 men followed over 19 years (13,000 deaths) Significant Reduction in Overall Mortality in Men with the highest blood levels of vitamin E. American Journal Clinical Nutrition 2006 Nov;84(5):1200-7
  14. 14. Disease Mortality Reduction Prostate Cancer 32% Ischemic Stroke 37% Hemorrhagic Stroke 35% Lung Cancer 21% Respiratory Illness 42% American Journal Clinical Nutrition 2006 Nov;84(5):1200-7 Largest Study in Medical History 29,000 men followed over 19 years (13,000 deaths)
  15. 15. Researchers concluded the reduction of death was due to the protection of fats (including LDL) from oxidation, enhancement of immune system, modulation of gene function, and suppression of tumor angiogenesis (inhibit blood vessel growth to cancer cells). Largest Study in Medical History 29,000 men followed over 19 years (13,000 deaths) American Journal Clinical Nutrition 2006 Nov;84(5):1200-7
  16. 16. the DIFFERENCE Synthetic vs. Natural Vitamin E • L Alpha Tocopherol • D Alpha Tocopherol Most MultiVitamins Vitamin E: Bio-Available? 30 – 100 IU Optimal: 400 IU Shown to Reduce Risk of Cancer and Heart Disease • D Gamma Tocopherol USANA 400 IU
  17. 17. Just To Get 400 IU of Vitamin E from Food You would have to Eat: Spinach 30 lbs. Safflower Oil 1.5 qt. Almonds 5 lbs Wheat Germ 2.2 lbs 60 x Supplementation is a Good Way to Boost Antioxidant Intake
  18. 18. Turmeric Extract (Curcumin) Powerful Antioxidant Protects cells, organs (e.g., liver) Cox 2 Inhibitor (Anti-Inflammatory) Arthritis, Pain …. Inhibits Cancer Cells in ALL Stages Initiation Angiogenesis Propagation & Metastasis
  19. 19. Grape Seed Extract & Resveratrol Improves Collagen • Skin • Arteries Reduces Oxidized LDL to Reduce Heart Disease • 400 mg of Grape Seed Extract • 30 mg of Resveratrol Maintains Healthy Cholesterol & Triglycerides • Increases HDL, Lowers LDL, Protects From Oxidation Improves Blood Flow
  20. 20. Grape Seed Extract & Resveratrol Reduces Cancer Risk Supports Immune System • Protects DNA from Mutation (Cancer Development) • Blocks Blood Supply to Cancer Cells • Apoptosis (Self Destruction) of Cancer Cells After They Develop
  21. 21. Polyphenol Antioxidants Unique to Olive Oil Olive Oil is Primary Fat in Mediterranean Diet: Mediterranean Diet Shown to Reduce the Risk of Cancer and Heart Disease Countries with the Highest Intake of Olive Oil have the Lowest Incidence of Cancer and Heart Disease
  22. 22. Polyphenol Antioxidants Unique to Olive Oil Greece and Crete Have 37 Times Less Incidence of Cancer Compared to the U.S. Due to Amount of Olive Oil Intake
  23. 23. In a study involving over 61,000 women, those consuming at least 10 grams of olive oil daily cut their risk of breast cancer in half. Women who consume 5 grams of other oils daily (corn or safflower oil— common to North American diets) increase their risk of breast cancer by 69 percent. Breast Cancer 30 mg Olive Extract = 60 grams Olive Oil
  24. 24. Quercetin Vitamin D Fish Oil Soy Co-Enzyme Q10 Many Nutrients Reduce the Risk of Breast, Prostate, & Colon Cancer Olive Extract Grape Seed Extract Turmeric Extract Green Tea Extract Cruciferous Extract Alpha Lipoic Acid JAMA, 1996; 276:1957-1963 Gyn Onc, 1994; 55:72-77 Biochem Biophys Res Commum, 1997; 234(2):296-299 Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 1996, 224(2):358-361 Am J Clin Nut, 1991; 53(Suppl):2605-2645 Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 1995; 212(1) Cancer Res. 2003 Jul 15; 63(14):4028-36.

Nutr Cancer. 2003 45(1):101-12. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1995 Jul 6; 212(1): 172-7.
  25. 25. Co-Enzyme Q10 Needed for Muscle, Brain, and All Cells …. To Create Energy for Cells! Co-Enzyme Q10 Required to Make Energy Molecules (ATP)
  26. 26. Co-Enzyme Q10 Needed for Muscle, Brain, and All Cells …. To Create Energy for Cells! Co-Enzyme Q10 Required to Make Energy Molecules (ATP) Mitochondria Glucose & O2 ATP & CO2
  27. 27. Co-Enzyme Q10 Reduces Risk of: • Breast, Prostate, & Colon Cancers • Heart Disease • Congestive Heart Failure • Diabetes (Type 2) • Alzheimer’s Disease • Age-Onset Dementia • Peripheral Neuropathy
  28. 28. “Vitamins, if properly understood and applied, will help us to reduce human suffering to an extent which the most fantastic human mind would fail to imagine.” Albert Szent-Györgyi (1893-1986) Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine
  29. 29. ―I dream of a world free from pain and suffering. I dream of a world free from disease. The USANA family will be the healthiest family on earth. Share my vision. Love life, and live it to its fullest in happiness and health.‖ —Dr. Myron Wentz, Founder and Chairman, USANA Health Sciences
