Breaking News: A Blood Test Can Screen For Early-Stage Cancer

Written by: Kat Gal

Cancer.

Just hearing the word makes you kind of nervous. Cancer is scary and serious. You want nothing to do with it, am I right?!

When it comes to cancer, prevention is number one, but early detection is just as crucial. If signs of cancer are detected early in your body, you have the best chance to find the best treatment option and to recover quickly.

Early Detection Through A Simple Blood Test

Early detection may be soon possible with a simple blood test. Researchers at John Hopkins University have recently developed a remarkable blood test that can detect early signs of the eight most common cancers, including breast, lung, bowel, pancreas, liver, esophagus and ovary. This is astonishing since these forms of cancer are normally not caught until later stages.

CancerSEEK, also known as the ‘liquid biopsy,’ is looking for mutated DNA in dying cells shed into your blood. Through checking protein biomarkers and mutations that regularly occur in cancer, they were able to detect 70 percent of cancers in 1,000 patients early on before the cancers started spreading. Such early detection enhances the chances of patients being able to beat the disease. There is a current on-going study testing 10,000 more patients, helping to determine the costs of the future.

CancerSEEK Blood Test Vs Current Testing

Aren’t current screening tests enough? Current screening tests can reduce the risk of death by 50 percent, though for five of these common cancers, early detection was simply impossible before CancerSEEK. To put this into perspective, pancreatic cancer can go undetected for a very long time. By the time it’s diagnosed, it’s often too late and four out of five patients die within a year of diagnosis. Early detection can potentially increase survival rates from 15 percent up to 92 percent for ovarian cancer.

For cancer, where testing and earlier detection is possible, testing is often not pleasant. Just think about colonoscopies. No one is keen on going through this process and some people are simply too afraid and forgo the procedure.

A blood test like CancerSEEK is simple, easy and pain-free. It is designed for people 50 and above as well as anyone at age with a family history of cancer. CancerSEEK has massive potential and can change the course of cancer detection on a large scale.

Cancer Prevention

Even while early detection blood tests are going to be available, you can’t forget about prevention.

Diet and lifestyle are absolutely crucial for preventing cancer and other diseases and feeling overall healthy and well.

  • Eat plenty of organic whole foods: lots of greens, vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, whole grains, beans, legumes and if you must, organic animal products.
  • Include superfoods, like turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, turkey tail, black pepper, Reishi and monk fruit in your diet that are scientifically shown to help to prevent cancer and to help the recovery process. Did you know that Organifi Gold includes all these cancer-fighting superfoods in just one warming cup?
  • Reduce – if possible eliminate – processed sugar, processed foods, artificial ingredients and additives. Focus on green juices and smoothies, raw foods and home-cooked meals instead. 
  • Stay away from toxins and use natural household and beauty products.
  • Drink plenty of water, at least 8-10 glasses a day.
  • Exercise 20-30 minutes a day and stay generally active.
  • Make sure to get good sleep nightly. Drinking a glass of Organifi Gold every night can calm your body, put your mind at ease and help you sleep.
  • Feeling well mentally and spiritually is also absolutely necessary, yet often ignored in creating a healthy and cancer-free body. Avoid stress. Develop a positive mindset. Spend time in nature. Find your community. Smile a lot.
