Doctor Oz did a Cancer Prevention Clinic on the Dr Oz show, and I am sure that he will save another life or two by raising cancer awareness. Cancer is a life threatening disease that many people (including me!) fear the most. Dr Oz had three other doctors who beat cancer on his show: Dr Dara Richardson-Heron, a breast cancer survivor, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, a skin cancer melanoma survivor, and Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, a brain cancer survivor.
A woman told Dr Oz that she has had cancer three times, and she wants to know what she can do to keep Breast Cancer from coming back a fourth time? She has started doing yoga and more physical activity and wanted to know if that would help prevent Breast Cancer. Dr Oz said that physical activity does help to reduce fat in your body, and especially belly fat can be a problem because it creates estrogen which can stimulate cancer. Plus, exercise boosts your T-Cells and helps your immune system battle back again cancer.
There was a study done on yoga, and it was shown that women who did yoga had an increased quality of life. So doing yoga can be helpful if you have Breast Cancer or other cancers too! Also, it has been shown that by taking vitamin D, specifically the active form of vitamin D called vitamin D3, you can decrease breast cancer by up to 50%.
