Popular Mainstream Treatment Linked to Colon Cancer!?

When it comes to preventing colon cancer, your mainstream doc will give you all sorts of dietary suggestions.

Mostly, they’ll tell you to give up some of your favorite things, like red meat, dessert, and alcohol.

But here’s what they won’t tell you:

Something THEY give you increases your risk of this deadly disease!

That’s right… a life-saving treatment that’s been long-accepted by the mainstream could GIVE you colon cancer.

As if you need another reason to stay away from antibiotics, a new study has surfaced linking these common drugs to colon cancer.

The overuse of antibiotics is one of the medical crimes of the century. These miracle drugs were a gift from heaven, and we blew it.

You see, when a doctor prescribes antibiotics for no good reason, they create superbugs that no medication can treat. That’s why the World Health Organization says we need to prepare for a world without antibiotics because they are slowly becoming useless.

Antibiotics also destroy your microbiome, the collection of healthy bacteria in your gut… and this has many impacts on your overall health.

That’s bad enough… but no one thought taking antibiotics would give you cancer.

Recently, a group of researchers from Umeå University in Sweden decided to investigate the connection between antibiotics and cancer.

And the results were disturbing.

Their study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, looked at data of over 240,000 people and found that women and men who took antibiotics for over six months had a 17 percent higher risk of developing cancer in the ascending colon (the first part of the long intestine) than people who didn’t take antibiotics.

Now, I’m the first doctor to tell you that you should take antibiotics if you really need them, but you want to make sure you have tried everything else you possibly can first.

Talk to your doctor to determine if you really need an antibiotic or if you could do without it.

And don’t forget to take a probiotic if you’re prescribed an antibiotic. Antibiotics destroy your healthy gut microbiome, but a probiotic can help restore it.
