Healthy Eating During Early Childhood Shown to Reduce Cancer Types

Nutritious early childhood diets and healthy eating patterns reduce cancer types.

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 14, 2006 -- A book by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.: Disease-Proof Your Child, demonstrates that healthy eating habits during early childhood may reduce certain cancer types. Despite recent headlines by the American Cancer Society stating that cancer deaths fell for the first time since 1930, Fuhrman suggests that a closer look at the statistics will actually reveal that cancer is not on the decline and will eventually get worse unless parents promote healthy eating habits.

The decrease in cancer incidences for men is a result of smoking less. The American Cancer Society stated that while cancer slightly decreased in men, it actually increased slightly in women. Americans are smoking much less, but the incidence of cancer has increased every single year for 75 years straight. Fuhrman concluded that the society gives the false impression that cancer is on the decline and that diet has nothing to do with cancer.

“The health care industry is not winning the war on cancer, in fact the World Health Organization (WHO) predicts a doubling of the cancer rates in the next 20 years.* This is because early childhood diets create adult cancers and our children are eating a worse diet than ever before. With the lowering of smoking rates we should have seen a large drop, the tiny decrease denotes nothing,” Dr. Fuhrman said.

Bottom line, in spite of modern medical care, Americans are still losing the war on cancer. It may not be cigarettes any more, but our growing waistlines show food addiction is just as serious as cigarette smoking.

Dr. Fuhrman lays out the case for healthy eating in his revolutionary new book Disease-Proof Your Child (St Martins, 2005) which presents clear research that adult cancer types are caused by early childhood diets. Dr. Fuhrman is a nutritional expert who has reviewed over 60,000 research studies.
