Increasingly, an awareness of the power of commonly used traditional plants to prevent and even treat cancer is coming to the forefront.

That exercise is crucial for optimal health is nothing new. But did you know it's also a powerful strategy to reduce your risk for cancer?

When my brother was 38 he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer and was told he probably wouldn’t survive it. The doctors were shocked to find someone his age with this type of Cancer.

Intuitively, you would think that a cancer cell that didn’t get enough oxygen would shrink and die…but that isn’t the case at all.
