WARNING: New prostate cancer scam… exposed!

What a coincidence!

Turns out there’s an easy way to predict which men with prostate cancer will be treated with body-wrecking, energy-sapping, dignity-robbing radiation.

It’s got nothing to do with the stage of the cancer… the location of the tumor… or the prognosis of the disease.

It’s whether or not the doc owns the radiation equipment!

If the doc who spots your tumor has his own radiation machine, then that’s what you’re getting. And, according to a new study, you’ll be pushed into it whether you need it or not.

Overall, men who see docs who own this equipment are 61 percent more likely to get blasted with radiation than guys who see docs who DON’T have one of these things.

And for men with often-harmless low-grade cancers, the numbers are uglier than a tumor.

Guys with “favorable risk” — in other words, men with localized tumors unlikely to grow — shouldn’t be treated at all in most cases. They can kick back, relax and enjoy life knowing the cancer will almost certainly never pose a threat.

Every now and then, a doc can check up on the tumor to make sure it’s not growing, a practice known as “active surveillance.”

But it seems men aren’t always getting that choice… especially when they see a zap-happy doctor who owns a radiation machine.

The new study finds these low-risk patients are 89 PERCENT more likely to get blasted with radiation!

It’s a similar story for men who see docs who own external beam radiation machines. Those crooks will make you 45 percent more likely to get treated for a low-risk tumor.

The docs behind the study claim owning machines also increases the likelihood that men who really do need treatment end up getting it.

And, sure, the odds of men with more serious tumors getting blasted with radiation jumps… but… is that REALLY the best we can do here?

Radiation, surgery, and chemo are just about the most primitive treatments out there, and often leave men so miserable with side effects including fatigue, incontinence, and impotence that they might WISH they had the cancer back.

But there’s a reason men are being pushed into treatment, even when they don’t need it.

Money.

Docs who own the equipment on average milk out an extra $2,000 out of every man treated with it.

Compared that to the ZERO DOLLARS they make off guys who go for “active surveillance,” and you can guess which one gets the bigger sales pitch.

Don’t fall for it.

If you have cancer — in your prostate or anywhere else — don’t rush into the first treatment a doctor recommends.

Get a second or even third opinion, and make sure one of those voices is from a naturopathic physician experienced in cancer care.

Christmas is over, but there’s plenty of fruitcake still around… because docs are going absolutely NUTS!

The PSA test has flunked every single study that’s come along. It’s so bad that even major mainstream health organizations like the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force won’t recommend it any longer.

Yet a new survey finds nutty doctors are STILL pushing this ugly test on unsuspecting patients!

The Medscape survey finds that more than half of docs – 54 percent – believe the benefits of the PSA test “always” or “often” outweigh the risks.

Throw in the number who say those benefits “sometimes” outweigh the risk, and the total jumps to 90 percent.

These aren’t just opinions. They’re leading to ACTIONS too, with 60 percent saying they “always” or “often” push the test on their patients.

Another 29 percent “sometimes” use it.

Only 4 percent of docs have ditched it completely despite the fact that even the guy who discovered PSA calls the test “a profit-driven public health disaster” and said it’s “hardly more effective than a coin toss.”

One reason the test is such a failure is that it can’t distinguish between common harmless tumors and rare deadly ones.

Most of them are in that first category. They’re completely harmless – but shady urologists won’t admit that to their patients.

They’ll pretend your life is on the line.

As a result, the PSA test has led to aggressive and painful treatments for harmless cancers – including treatments that could put you in diapers for the rest of your life.

Many guys also lose the ability to “do it,” and some never have sex again.

Yet they actually THANK their doctors because they’ve been conned into believing those treatments saved their lives.

And they’d rather be alive and in diapers than pushing up daisies.

Well, friend, it turns out you don’t have to make that choice. A second new study shows that nearly every guy diagnosed with prostate cancer eventually dies of something else.

The study finds NO DIFFERENCE in the death rate between guys dutifully screened for prostate cancer every single year… and guys who get screened only occasionally or even NEVER at all.

Put yourself in that last group.

Unless you’ve got some complicating factor – like a close relative who died of this disease – screening is far more likely to hurt you than help.

And if you DO find out you have cancer, it may not need treatment at all… because guys who choose the “watch and wait” approach live just as long as men who rush into drugs and surgery.

With a ‘no way’ for PSA,

Slash your risk of the deadliest prostate cancer

* Do our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 6/15/2016

Let’s face it, guys: None of us are as slim and trim as we used to be — and if you are, congratulations.

You can skip ahead to the next story.

But before you do… before you say “not me — I’m in perfect shape” and click the “archive” button on this message… take a good, hard look at your waistline.

You don’t have to be shaped like a panda to be the wrong shape.

Even if you’ve just got a little extra air in the tire, it’s time to pay attention — and not just because of the heart disease and diabetes risk your doc blabs on and on about.

They’re real risks… but after hearing so much about them, the warnings start to lose their punch.

So here comes a new punch — a low blow that hits right below the belt, because the latest research finds even a little extra belly fat could lead to prostate cancer!

We’re not talking any ol’ tumors here — like the ones that are usually harmless.

We’re talking about the rare aggressive tumors… and that means you DO need to worry about your belly blubber, because as your waistline grows, your risk of a deadly cancer shoots up.

Every five-point jump in your BMI will increase your risk of fatal prostate cancer by 10 percent… and every 4 extra inches in your waistline will boost the odds of dying from prostate cancer by 18 percent.

There’s no word on why that risks jumps so quickly, but extra belly fat is known to screw with your hormone factory and immune system at the same time, a one-two punch that could give a cancer just what it needs to grow and thrive.

Of course, not every risk is within your control. The study finds taller guys also have a higher risk of cancer… but there’s not a whole lot you can do about your height.

So focus on your weight. Losing even a few of those extra pounds won’t just protect your prostate, it’ll also help you to avoid all of today’s leading killers of seniors: heart disease, diabetes and even dementia.

It’ll even make you better in the bedroom!

No one expects you to be pencil thin. Heck, it’s probably better if you’re NOT a stick figure.

The study finds that lowest risk is at a 33-inch waistline, and the higher risk starts 4 inches later — at 37 inches. So if you can keep your waistline to 36 inches or less, you’re golden.

Making haste when it comes to the waist,

Disarm prostate tumors with this simple nutrient

* Do our loved ones & friends KNOW ? * Note taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison   –   3/7/16 Everyone loves winter — right up to the day it actually arrives. Once the bone-chilling temperatures hit…and you’ve thrown out your back shoveling snow…you remember why winter is actually your LEAST favorite season. Well, my friend, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. The days are getting a little warmer and a little longer — and longer days mean more sun to help your body to start pumping out vitamin D again. And men, the latest research shows one of the most important reasons yet to make sure you get plenty of the sunshine vitamin: It can help you survive prostate cancer. I’m sure you’ve heard that in most cases you don’t need any help at all surviving this disease. Most tumors grow so slowly that they won’t ever hurt you, much less kill you. But rare aggressive tumors can turn deadly in a flash — and if you have low D levels, you’re facing more than double the risk of a more aggressive tumor, according to the study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. If your D levels drop below 30 ng/mL, you could be 2.64 times more likely to have an aggressive tumor than if you had a higher D level, according to the study of 190 men with prostate cancer. Lower D levels could also raise your “Gleason” score, which is a measure of just how nasty that tumor is. That’s right in line with other studies, which have linked low D levels to a higher risk of any number of cancers and a higher risk of DEATH from this awful disease — and higher D levels to a LOWER risk of the deadliest tumors. One study even found that supplements of 4,000 IU of vitamin D per day cut the risk of high-Gleason tumors by 55 percent. There are two common ways to get your daily dose of vitamin D. The first is completely natural and totally free: Get outside every day wearing as little clothing as local laws and common decency will allow. That’s hard to do during bitter cold winter months… and most folks just don’t get enough sunshine even in spring and summer to get the D vitamin levels they need to fight cancer, protect the heart, and boost the immune system. So along with getting outside when you can, I recommend the second way of getting your D: with a high-quality D3 supplement. Look for a minimum of 2,000 IU per day, but some folks might need double that level or more. If you’re unsure, ask your doc to run a D test to find out where your levels are and how much you need to boost them. Helping you “D”-feat cancer, Jack Harrison
