Cancer is considered the disease of the century. According to statistics of the World Health Organization (WHO), it is responsible for the deaths of 15 million people worldwide each year. To protect from this fatal disease, prevention is the best way. To help you strengthen the natural defenses against the proliferation of cancer cells: Try mixing these three natural ingredients!
Cancer is a disease caused by mutation of the cells of a tissue in the body, and which begin to quickly and haphazardly multiply. They can also migrate and stick to closest organs and tissues and thus form other tumors. Therefore, regular monitoring can detect the disease in its early stages and prevent its proliferation in the body, increasing the chances of cure.
What are the risk factors for cancer?
Although the exact cause of the appearance of cancer cells is still unknown, several factors contribute to their development:
- Family history
- Unhealthy diet
- Prolonged exposure to chemicals
- Prolonged exposure to the sun
- Exposure to certain viruses (Human Papillomavirus)
Thus, to reduce the risk of developing cancer, whatever its type, make sure to follow a healthy, balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables which are an important source of nutrients and antioxidants to protect the body cells from the effects of the free radicals and toxins. Indeed, proper diet and weight control are one of the means of effective prevention against the most cancers.
According to a study by the School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London and whose results were published in The Lancet, each 5-point increase in BMI (Body Mass Index) increases the risk of cancer of the uterus by 62%, gall bladder by 31%, liver by 25%, cervix by 10%, thyroid by 9% and blood (leukemia) by 9%.
In addition, a healthy lifestyle is also important: regular physical activity, enough sleep, avoiding stressful situations and exposure to chemicals in the workplace as well as house cleaning products, and stopping the use of tobacco and alcohol, are some actions to be taken to reduce the risk of cancer and protect the health.

Thanks to its richness in antioxidants and its various anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal and antiseptic properties, aloe vera helps to strengthen the defenses of the immune system and boost its action, thus helping the body to fight against various inflammations and infections. It is also effective to stimulate blood circulation, improve oxygenation of cells and promote their renewal. Thus, it inhibits the growth of cancer cells and slows down the development of cancer.
According to a Japanese study in the laboratory and in humans, aloe vera consumption has an inhibitory effect on the creation and development of cancer cells.
In addition, its healing and regenerative properties help speed up the healing of the skin and its analgesic effect helps relieve pain.
Thanks to its high content of vitamin C, citric acid and antioxidants, it has very potent antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral effects. It stimulates the immune system and effectively contributes to the treatment of several diseases such as colds or flu. Moreover, its alkalizing effect on the body prevents the development and proliferation of cancer cells.
The health benefits of honey are well established. Very nutritious and with multiple medicinal properties, it helps regulate the cholesterol and sugar levels in the blood, fights fungal infections and fights against the pathogenic effect of many bacteria and viruses.
Containing a large amount of antioxidants, it also has a potent anti-tumor effect which helps to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in the body.
