The Dr Oz Cancer Proof Your Life show including a segment on your best bets for beating cancer before it begins. Doctor Oz did this in the form of a game where two women from his audience had to guess which food or supplement worked best to prevent cancer.
Dr Oz: Prevent Cancer with Beer
Dr Oz’s first question was which is better to prevent Cancer: beer or milk? Believe it or not, the answer is beer because it protects against bacteria that has be linked to Stomach Cancer and Ulcers. Dr Oz did say that 2 or more drinks a day can lead to an increase in other types of cancer though, so limit yourself to 1 glass of beer a day!
Dr Oz: Prevent Cancer with Fermentation & Sauerkraut
Dr Oz’s second question was which is better for preventing Cancer: sauerkraut or cabbage? The answer is that cabbage alone helps to prevent cancer, but the fermentation process used in making sauerkraut is even better at fighting off cancer. Ironically, just the other day I was reading a wonderful blog that gave a great Introduction to Fermentation and even documented the process of Fermenting Sauerkraut at home. Definitely check out those two links!
Dr Oz: Prevent Cancer with Magnesium
Dr Oz’s final question was which is better to prevent Cancer: magnesium or vitamin A? Vitamin A is good for you, but it is actually Magnesium that helps to reduce Colon Cancer in women when combined with calcium. Hence why all of us should take Dr Oz’s Calcium Cocktail (600 mg calcium, 400 mg magnesium and 1000 IU vitamin D)!
