Dr Oz: 3 Secret Weapons to Prevent Cancer: Gouda & Grilled Meat

By on February 3, 2011

Dr Oz did a segment called 3 Secret Weapons to Prevent Cancer with 3 cancer experts: Dr William Li, Dr Ilana Cass and Dr Dara Richardson-Heron from the Susan G. Komen of Greater New York.  Doctor Oz’s guests had some very interesting Cancer Prevention Tips like eating Gouda Cheese, exercising and avoiding pan-fried and grilled meats.  Please pass this article on to your friends and family so that we can help everyone to prevent cancer!

Dr Oz: Gouda Cheese Prevents Cancer

Dr William Li told Dr Oz that his tip for how to prevent cancer is to eat a hard cheese like Gouda Cheese, because it has a special vitamin in it called Vitamin K2 that inhibits cancer cells Dr Oz Cancer Preventionfrom growing.  By eating just 2 slices of Gouda a day, your overall risk of cancer decreases but especially your risk for Lung Cancer (the number one cancer killer in women) and Prostate Cancer.  Also, Dr Li said that if you are worried about cheese causing Heart Attacks and Heart Disease, Vitamin K2 also protects your heart by protecting your arteries from hardening.  Dr William Li said that other hard cheese besides for Gouda work as well like Jarlsburg Cheese, Emmental Cheese and Edam Cheese.

Dr Oz: Exercise Prevents Cancer

Dr Ilana Cass said that exercise and maintaining a healthy body weight can help prevent cancer.  At a minimum, you want to raise your heart rate 3 times a week for 30 minutes.  The best is to aim for 45-60 minutes of vigorous exercise, but even moderate exercise helps.  So, take a brisk walk and keep your weight down to help reduce your risk of cancer.

Dr Oz: Grilled Meat Causes Cancer

Dr Dara Richardson-Heron told Dr Oz that you should limit your intake of pan-fried and grilled meats, because when you heat the meat under such high heat, cancer causing chemicals attach to the food.  You should avoid grilled fish, chicken, beef and pork (so basically all forms of protein).  Dr Richardson-Heron said that the charred black areas (the part that tastes the best unfortunately!) are the worst for you.  If you have to grill your meat, then marinate it and precook it at least so that it is on the grill for less time.  Low heat is the best way to cook you meat such as steaming, broiling or low heat sauteing.  Instead, try grilling fruits and vegetables.  One more tip, if you insist on using a grill, cover the grate with aluminum foil and poke holes in it so that you get less cancer causing chemicals in your food.

  4. I don’t understand the grilled meat thing, I came home from work and my wife said we can’t
    grill any more because it can cause cancer. Please explain what transformation takes place
    that causes meat to become cancer causing.

    Thanks,

  5. Kent,

    If you just google grill and cancer, you’ll get more answers than you ever want to know. Need to do some home work man.

  6. Is swiss cheese considered a hard cheese? I’m asking because it has alot less sodium than most cheeses.

  7. Lorraine says:

    What happened! I would of thought the number one secret weapon to help prevent cancer would be stop smoking. Then reduce or eliminate dairy products and meat. .
