Pre-Diabetes Linked to Increased Cancer Risk

Elevated blood sugars increase a person’s risk for cancer. [Reference] The mechanism is not completely understood, but is probably due to several different reasons, here are a couple of my theories:

Stop Metabolic Syndrome Before it Starts

Metabolic syndrome is killing America. This group of risk factors – which includes a large waistline or “apple shape,” a high triglyceride level, a low HDL “good” cholesterol level, high blood pressure and high fasting blood sugar – can raise your risk of stroke, double your risk of heart disease and multiply your risk of diabetes by five. You must exhibit at least three of these risk factors to be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. Although the risk of developing metabolic syndrome is closely linked to obesity, a lack of physical activity at any body size, as well as insulin resistance, genetics and aging may also increase your risk for metabolic syndrome. As a general rule, everyone should pay attention to metabolic health. Luckily, committing to a healthy lifestyle can help you prevent metabolic syndrome and its related disease states.

Here are 5 areas to be mindful of:

1. Maintain a balanced diet of whole foods.

Walking for Health

Modern research has shown that walking, which is considered moderate exercise, is highly beneficial for overall health and carries less risk of injury than intense aerobic exercises such as running. In fact, research shows that walking may reduce the risk of cardiovascular events by some 31% in both men and women. As a rough guide, the current standards suggest able-bodied adults complete moderate exercise for at least 30 minutes, five days per week, compared to intense exercise for 20 minutes, three days per week. As with any new exercise plan, you should consult your Naturopathic Doctor before beginning.
