  1. REPORT: What ‘aspirin therapy’ can REALLY do to seniors [Yikes!]

    Every time I see yet another aspirin commercial, I’ve gotta wonder…

    What in the HECK ever happened to truth in advertising???

    Clearly, it’s a concept that DOESN’T exist anymore…

    Because if they were REALLY forced to give you the truth… they wouldn’t be ALLOWED to market it as some heart-saving wonder drug.

    They’d have to show frantic phone calls… ambulance lights

    And terrified seniors being RUSHED into the ER after suffering from internal bleeding.

    “I FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN STABBED FROM THE INSIDE!” would be about as honest an endorsement as they could show!

    So, let ME give you what THEY won’t -- and that’s the ugly truth about aspirin.

    How it DOESN’T work

    And more importantly, how you can get the heart protection you need… WITHOUT those risks!

    Get the HEART-SAVING benefits of aspirin… with ZERO risk!

    Years ago, they had everyone over 40 absolutely CONVINCED that an aspirin a day will keep a first heart attack away.

    Now, millions have undoubtedly paid a high price for little to no ACTUAL protection.

    And new research shows how as you get OLDER… the risks get even BIGGER.

    In seniors even so-called “baby” aspirin increases the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding by 60%!

    Bad as that is, this gets a whole lot WORSE…

    Because a second study just out finds that aspirin can not only increase your risk of cancer… but speed the growth of the DEADLIEST tumors!

    If you’re past 70, the old “aspirin a day” plan will DOUBLE your risk of death from a stage 3 tumor… and boost the risk of a stage 4 death by almost a third.

    Short of going in your sleep at the age of 110, there aren’t too many “good” ways to die. But I can assure you… dying of a stage 3 or 4 cancer is one of the absolute WORST.

    Yet THAT’S what aspirin can do to you!

    You’d think with these risks… the benefits would be off the charts.

    But here’s the thing about that…

    The “benefits” for primary prevention are almost nonexistent. 

    One study a few years back found aspirin cuts the chance of a first cardiovascular event like heart attack or stroke by a crummy 11%...

    But it increases the risk of a dangerous bleed by 43%.

    It’s so bad that even the mainstream is starting to sound like… well… they’re sounding more like ME!

    The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association last year finally updated their guidelines… and recommended AGAINST aspirin for most people.

    Yet the word hasn’t gotten out -- close to 30 million Americans are still taking it daily.

    If you’re one of them, talk to your doc about quitting (just don’t do it on your own) and trying something safer instead…

    Like a mix of heart-friendly basics, such as…

    • CoQ10
    • L-Carnitine
    • magnesium and
    • vitamin E as mixed tocopherols.

    Real protection. Real benefits. And no bleeding!

    In Your Corner,

    Dr. Allan Spreen

    P.S. Earlier this year, I shared how taking too much aspirin could lead to a terrifying stroke-like problem. If you missed that one… or just want to take another gander at it… click here.

  2. Skin cancer risk PLUNGES with this vitamin trick [No chemicals needed!]

    We’ve all been told, repeatedly, that the ONLY way to avoid skin cancer is to avoid the sun.

    And if you DO have to go outside – ohmygod!!!! – you’d better SLATHER some poorly tested chemicals all over your body’s most sensitive organ.

    That’s right -- your skin.

    Well, friend, the mainstream may have gotten it ALL WRONG…

    Because the key to protecting yourself from the most common form of skin cancer may have NOTHING to do with UV rays.

    According to new research, it’s what’s on the INSIDE that counts!

    The vitamin you almost NEVER hear about

    Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common forms of the disease, striking some 1 million Americans every year.

    This isn’t typically a deadly cancer. But it’s no fun, either.

    It looks like a chunk of your skin was burned off or something…

    And treating it usually means removing that chunk -- leaving you with some battle scars, often in highly visible places such as the face, neck and ears.

    But if you boost your A, your risk of this disease will PLUMMET.

    In the new study, folks with the highest levels of A had a 17% lower risk of skin cancer.

    Apply that across the board… and make sure everyone gets more A

    And that means 170,000 cases of skin cancer every year could VANISH.

    Yet how often do you hear about vitamin A?

    Almost never.

    Your best sources of A include carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin (hello, autumn!)… as well as milk, fish, liver, eggs, and poultry.

    Now, this isn’t to say you can load up on those foods or pop an A supplement and then go bake in the sun ’til you crisp.

    But the notion that any sun exposure will roast you to death is just absurd.

    Get out for 15-30 minutes a day without “protection,” depending on your complexion, to enjoy the benefits of sunshine (including vitamin D).

    Then, if you’re going to be out longer than that, cover up.

    Check online to find a sunscreen free of hormone disruptors and other nasty chemicals. They’re harder to find, but they’re out there.

    A good place to start your search is by punching “EWG sunscreens” into Google. You’ll find a free guide that includes just about every possible brand along with ratings and an explanation of what’s inside for each.

  15. The Ultimate Prostate Cancer Diet: Can You Prevent Prostate Cancer With Food?

    Diet prostate cancerThe topics are all over your television, news stream, and radio: how can you prevent prostate cancer? Is there a prostate cancer diet? What are your risks for prostate cancer? If you’re a man – or a woman who loves a man – you’ve probably realized prostate health should be a major focus of overall health. There’s a good reason for that. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men, coming in behind skin cancer. And it’s the second deadliest cancer in men, as well. In fact, 1 in every 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point. Sadly, 1 in every 38 of those men will die from it. However, that doesn’t mean that prostate cancer is inherently a death sentence. More than 2.9 million men diagnosed with prostate cancer are still around, living life to its fullest. And perhaps the easiest way to prevent prostate cancer, and increase your odds of beating it, is through diet. Simple, healthy, and delicious changes to your diet can help you help your prostate!
