Dr. Heike Bischoff-Ferrari, University Hospital Zurich, known for his work on stem cell therapy, stated that in addition to optimal vitamin D and Omega-3 levels, daily physical exercise lessens the risk of cancer.
"Scientific investigations have demonstrated that proper vitamin D levels in the body hinder the growth of cancer cells," stated Dr. Bischoff-Ferrari. Similarly, proper Omega-3 levels in the body have been proven to limit the transformation of normal cells into cancer cells, and daily exercise has been demonstrated to increase immune system performance and reduce inflammation.
According to a new multicenter scientific study, the combination of vitamin D, Omega-3, and regular physical activity can cut the risk of cancer by 61%.
"It may be appropriate to consume fatty sea fish such as salmon, sardines, and tuna, as well as foods like as eggs, dairy products, yogurt, flaxseed, and walnuts, and to exercise 6.000 steps each day," stated Dr. Yüksel Büküşolu.
The trial followed 2,157 people aged 70 and up for three years in Portugal, Austria, Germany, France, and Switzerland. The goal was to see how daily doses of omega-3s, vitamin D3, and simple home strength training exercises affected each participant.
The treatments were given to different groups in order to determine which strategy (or combination of ways) could reduce the risk of invasive malignancy. (To explain, invasive cancer occurs when the disease spreads beyond the area of tissue where it began, into healthy tissue.)
