Animals & Cancer: Part 2 How to Prevent the Likelihood of Developing Cancer

by Ava Frick, DVM

Preventing the likelihood of developing cancer requires awareness and vigilance. A list of ways you can help include:
Nutrition – Develop a grain free feeding plan for the animal’s life. Avoid genetically modified crops (GM). GM is a crude and imprecise way of incorporating foreign material into crops, with unpredictable consequences. GM plants lead to GM organisms with altered DNA and bizarre molecular structures that over time can change a body’s DNA and increase the rate of cancer.
Avoid products with fructose – The journal of Cancer Research just published findings that cancer cells can readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation. The metabolism of fructose leads to the accumulation of uric acid, increasing the risk of many other diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, and kidney disease.

Do not expose the body to excessive or unnecessary radiation, radiographs, CT scans, etc. Radiation from x-rays is damaging to the body, even more so in those where their lifespan is short and the metabolic rate is fast. X-rays can cause DNA changes and chromosomal mutations that are often irreparable, and the effects are cumulative.

Toxic chemicals and heavy metals are a huge threat to the survival of our animals. 2009 research showed cats and dogs to have a 60% higher level than the humans they lived with. They are in the carpet, treated fabrics, paint, topical repellents, and water. Herbicides and pesticides on the ground and in processed foods from the plant materials contained therein are routes of exposure. The removal of chlorine, chloramines, fluorides, and the 3-5000 chlorine byproducts that are all known or suspected carcinogens should also be addressed.

Keep the cells oxygenated. That means exercising throughout life and utilizing whole food or herbal antioxidants. Another way to oxygenate the body is by drinking alkaline water. Alkaline water is not just high in pH but it also carries a very high negative electrical charge. This gives the body an opportunity to release its highly positively-charged toxic heavy metals and other toxic acid waste stored in the cells. Alkaline water also handles free radicals and corrects the damage caused by their presence. My preference is a system provided through Natural Plus Plus, LLC (727) 447-2344. www.gobeyondorganic.com.
