The secret to evading cancer may live in the sea. The cancer-fighting solution I’m going to tell you about today – perhaps the healthiest food in the world – could save your life. Plus, it’s not an exotic, expensive supplement. It’s cheap!
Yet few people know about it. Here’s the story. . .
These Doctors Were Forced to Admit
Rev. Cobus Rudolph’s doctor told him, “Congratulations! You’re cancer free!” That was six months after the same doctor had told him his case was hopeless and he should prepare to die. Rev. Rudolph saved his own life, at home, thanks to a book by cancer expert Ty Bollinger.
Richard Wiebe’s doctor told him, “You’re a miracle from God!” Just a year earlier the same doctor told Richard he’d be dead in six months from terminal brain cancer. Richard treated himself with the tips and secrets Ty Bollinger recommends.
Kevin Irish’s doctor was shocked. He asked Kevin, “Are you the terminal patient I saw two months ago? You look great!” Kevin saved his own life when he found Ty Bollinger’s book on the Internet and started following the advice.
Frank Woll’s doctor was stubborn: “Well, I know the cancer is here somewhere!” But the doctor couldn’t find Frank’s cancer with a magnifying glass. Only a month earlier, the same doctor had told Frank they’d have to cut off half his ear and part of his neck!
These four men got TOTALLY WELL with Ty Bollinger’s secrets. Now, Cancer Defeated is proud to publish them in a new Special Report. Click here and discover an effective, cheap, at-home plan to get rid of almost any cancer in one month.
If your visits to the beach leave you thinking there’s too much seaweed in the ocean … it’s time to reconsider this plant’s awesome but hidden benefits.
Seaweed is a very broad term used to describe many varieties of marine plants and algae. Kelp (one of the largest types of seaweed and well-known among health fanatics) is actually a type of multicellular algae. Like all algae, it feeds itself by photosynthesis, like a plant.
This type of seaweed contains massive amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
It contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E, iodine, other minerals, and fiber. All are powerful, cancer-fighting nutrients. I take a kelp supplement daily.
Mere kelp can help prevent and treat prostate cancer, breast cancer, gastric cancer, and more. It could be your “lifeboat” back to good health.
This stunning Japanese secret is lost on most Americans
The Japanese diet includes more than 21 different types of seaweed. Japanese men and women eat up to 11 grams of seaweed every day.
The seaweed-rich diet makes a significant dent in the cancer rate in Japan. And it could slash your risk, too.
Japanese men have a lower risk of getting prostate cancer (the most common type of cancer for men) than do American men. However, when Japanese men emigrate to the US and start eating a Western diet, they get prostate cancer at the same rate as American men. Of course, I can’t ascribe the entire difference to seaweed, but it probably plays a role.
The same is true for Japanese women. Mostly because seaweed contains so much iodine, Japanese women consume 25 times more iodine than American women. This extra iodine protects Japanese women from getting breast cancer.
In fact, 83 percent fewer Japanese women get breast cancer than American women. From the earliest days of this newsletter, I’ve urged readers to consume more iodine. It’s a particularly powerful tool against breast cancer.
Like the men, when Japanese women settle in the U.S. and start eating a Western diet, they get breast cancer at the same rate as American women.
Do the Japanese know a secret that’s lost on Americans? And if so, why do they stop taking advantage of it when they move to the U.S.? I guess it’s a case of “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” And like most of us, their eating habits are probably dictated more by what they like than by what’s good for them.
Seaweed protects you from cancer
in many different ways
There are thousands of seaweed species. Scientists divide them into three main categories:
1. Brown algae (such as kelp and wracks)
2. Red algae (such as dulse, weeds, and mosses)
3. Green algae (such as sea lettuce, which resembles land-grown lettuce in appearance)
Together they comprise one of the world’s great superfoods… your proverbial lifeboat.
Seaweed prevents cancer tumors from developing and helps maintain blood vessels that keep tumors from growing.
A type of brown seaweed – known as fucoxanthin – makes prostate cancer cells commit suicide.
Another type of seaweed – this one a red algae that grows near the equator in Southeast Asia – shrinks breast tumors more effectively than chemotherapy.
Researchers at the University Putra in Malaysia used rats to test the effectiveness of red seaweed compared to chemotherapy. Chemotherapy shrank breast tumors 71 percent in four weeks. The seaweed shrank breast tumors 91 percent in four weeks.
In addition to working 27 percent better than chemotherapy, red seaweed showed another amazing benefit. While chemotherapy devastated the rats’ kidneys and livers, the seaweed protected those organs.
Seaweed also softens tumors.
Destroys free radicals, ushers out toxins,
According to Denmark’s National Food Institute and the Technical University of Denmark, seaweed finds and destroys free radicals in your body.
Certain types of blue-green algae work wonders for your immune system.
Blue-green algae contain a compound known as chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps purify your blood, detoxify your body, and rejuvenate your organs. Via this cleansing and detoxing mechanism, blue-green algae help prevent cancer and reduce tumor growth.
A specific type of blue-green algae – named spirulina because it looks like a spiral – boosts your immune system and prevents breast cancer cells from growing.
Spirulina is also a useful treatment for allergies, high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Chlorella – a type of green algae – is a “near-perfect food,” according to some doctors.
It binds to toxins and escorts them out of your body, enhancing your immune system. It also kills liver cancer cells.
Sea lettuce – a type of green algae (genus Ulva) — boosts your antioxidant enzymes, according to Dr. Hendrik Luesch from the University of Florida.
These enzymes increase the antioxidants in your cells. Boosted by higher levels of antioxidants, your body wards off damage and inflammation, and protects you from cancer.
Abundant trace minerals bring the gift of health
Brown algae contain all 72 trace minerals that are typically missing from our Western diet.
Besides these minerals, brown algae contain a compound called fucoidan that’s been proven to have significant cancer-fighting ability (see Issue #119).
Fucoidan prevents tumors from growing in at least three ways:
1. It triggers enzymes that kill cancer cells.
2. It changes the membrane of a cancer cell’s mitochondria (the cell’s “power house” or “engine”), causing the cancer cell to die.
3. It prevents cancer cells (especially lung cancer cells) from metastasizing.
Men who eat brown algae enjoy a reduced risk of contracting prostate cancer. Brown algae also help combat breast cancer, diabetes, obesity, chemical overloads, and more.
Boosts your iodine levels
If you’re health-literate you probably know that iodine is essential to thyroid health, but few people know it also offers powerful protection against breast cancer. Most Americans lack this essential mineral, because the practice of iodizing salt and even putting some iodine in bread dough has fallen out of favor.
The official recommended intake of iodine, at 150 micrograms, is absurdly low. A teaspoon of iodized salt is said to contain around 400 micrograms.
Kelp contains more iodine than any other known food. Even better, kelp contains a natural form of iodine that your body easily processes.
Helps neutralize carbohydrates
Eating carbohydrates increases your risk of cancer. Not to mention a host of other inflammatory diseases such as diabetes, dementia and heart disease.
Carbs contain a certain signaling molecule called IGF-1. High IGF-1 levels make cancer resistant to treatment.
When you lower your IGF-1 levels you reduce your risk of getting cancer, slow cancer growth if you’ve already got the disease, and increase your odds of surviving. Eating seaweed (i.e. the different varieties of algae) naturally reduces your IGF-1 levels.
When you eat carbs, your blood sugar increases. Seaweed helps prevents big spikes in your blood sugar levels, improving your insulin sensitivity and reducing your insulin levels.
Don’t take this as a gimmick that allows you to pig out on carbs – the best move is to eat as few carbohydrates as possible. But seaweed can help neutralize an occasional indulgence.
Don’t go overboard with seaweed
Chinese and Japanese healers have used seaweed to treat cancer for centuries. Just be careful not to eat too much.
Seaweed is almost too healthy. Ten grams (about two teaspoons) contains 34 times more potassium than the same amount of banana – and bananas are a potassium-rich food. That much potassium could cause heart palpitations if you have kidney problems.
It’s also possible to overdose on iodine.
To solve this problem, eat small amounts regularly.
Many ways to get some seaweed
Sushi rolls and seaweed salad will give you a weekly seaweed boost. Not a big fan of sushi? Buy seaweed in pill form.
I take Nature’s Way kelp myself, as well as various brands of chlorella or spirulina (depending on what mood I’m in). Just follow the directions on the bottles and you’ll be fine.
If you’d rather not take a pill, buy dried seaweed and add one-fourth teaspoon or more to:
• Fresh squeezed juice
• Salad dressings (olive oil and vinegar dressings work best)
• Condiments, such as hummus, olive tapenade, or pesto
• Soups and stews (note to moms… your children won’t even notice, especially if you also include a fair amount of garlic!)
Just start small and add more over time!
By including more seaweed in your diet, you can lower your risk of getting cancer.
7 Natural Ways to Outsmart Toxins
in Your Bedroom and Bath
Modern living — especially in wealthy, developed countries — is largely based on convenience and comfort rather than what’s good for us. But what we gain from luxuries like body-conforming mattresses and anti-wrinkle clothing could also be putting our health at risk.
Many of us don’t have to wait till we get cancer to find out we’ve made a mistake. The chemicals make us sick now and we have to do something about them. We may be the lucky ones. . .
. . .because most people sail along without being bothered by the chemical wonderland we live in. After decades of exposure, they often get cancer.
If you want to do something about the toxins instead of assuming everything’s all right, then read the following collection of do’s and don’ts for your bedroom and bathroom. By acting now on these tips for navigating hidden dangers in your house, you’ll curb your risk of future health problems.

The Vitamin Doctor
1. Ditch toxin-heavy clothing
Much of the clothing sold in stores today drips with chemicals from the manufacturing process. Yet your skin is the largest organ of your body (most adults have 22 square feet of it, or eight pounds) – and it absorbs things readily and passes them into our blood. So it’s essential to protect it.
It’s possible to absorb a hefty chemical load from the clothes you wear. You can also inhale the gases these chemicals give off. Gone are the days when clothing consisted of natural fibers like cotton, wool, and silk. They’ve been replaced with synthetics like nylon, polyester, and spandex.
Today’s $7 trillion-per-year clothing industry uses a shocking 8,000 synthetic chemicals in the manufacturing process. Wrinkle-free, anti-cling, and water-repellent fabrics all carry high chemical loads.
The toxins include formaldehyde (linked to a 30% increase in cancer) and flame retardants like brominated Tris, a mutagen that causes cancer and sterility in animals. When chemicals like these get absorbed through the skin, they bypass your liver, which is your body’s natural toxin-filter. And because these chemical molecules are tiny, they can head straight to any other organ in your body, including your brain.
That’s why natural and organic clothing is a no-brainer. But you have to put some effort into finding it. Commit to buying and wearing clothing made from cotton, flax, hemp, silk, cashmere, alpaca, or angora. Start small and replace your undergarments first (because they’re closest to your skin). Aim to gradually replace all clothing that comes in contact with your skin, and you’ll drastically reduce your chemical load.
2. Kick the monsters out of your bed
We live in a world of insomniacs and sleep-deprived people – and one of the reasons may be the staggering chemical load in most manufactured mattresses. I know that my sinuses close up tight when exposed to most pillows and mattresses, forcing me to breathe through my mouth. These common household items often give me a sore throat as well.
These reactions often stem from government-mandated flame retardants that can withstand an open-flame test of 2,000 degrees for 70 seconds. But that means we’re talking about acutely toxic chemicals, many of which are known to cause cancer.
I often wonder how many people actually died of mattress fires before the government forced us all to use flame retardant bedding. Was it really enough to make it worth mandating deadly chemicals for all 300 million Americans?
Worse still, you’ll rarely find a “contents” list when you buy a new mattress. And when you consider that most of us spend six to nine hours on our mattresses every night, it puts all of us at high risk for absorbing the flame-proofing chemicals that leach to the surface of mattresses.
Symptoms connected to toxic mattresses include asthma, skin issues, infertility, hair loss, neurological issues, and cancer.
Overcome this bedroom risk with a low-density, food-grade polyethylene cover, or consider buying a 3-inch organic topper for your bed that sits above the surface of the original mattress (toxic gases are heavier than air and can only rise about an inch or two above the mattress).
If you need to replace your current mattress, look for a natural or organic handmade brand. If there’s no way you can replace your current mattress or find a substitute, at least try to detox regularly with a hot Epsom salt bath or sweat therapy, such as you’d get from a sauna.
3. Don’t strangle your lymphatic system
I’m not much of a fashion expert, but it’s no secret that tight-fitting clothing is in common use. A century ago, things like corsets and foot bindings caused physical deformities that were plain to see. These days, few people give a second thought to the effect of tight elastic bands like those found in socks, undergarments, and bras in particular.
The chief risk of tighter-than-comfortable clothing is that it constricts lymph drainage, which is needed for a well-functioning immune system. Lymph drainage is a key weapon in flushing out toxins. Cut that off and you have a backup of lymph in your body, which includes toxins and other debris.
Avoid this easy-to-fix problem altogether by wearing clothing that fits. If your undergarments leave red marks and indentations on your skin, they’re too tight. Even if you don’t notice any discomfort, take the red marks as a cue from your body to re-size your clothing.
You should also always take restrictive clothing off at night (especially bras) so your immune system can have some breathing room. Men should wear boxers or at least take off tight-fitting brief at night because – aside from the lymph problem – briefs reduce sperm counts and testosterone levels.
4. Choose health over beauty
Beauty as our culture defines it has a powerful effect on the way we live our lives – a fact that’s underscored by the billion-dollar-a-year beauty industry. Hair dye is a massive offender, packed with a multitude of chemicals likely to cause cancer. Cancer shows up decades later, after long exposures, making it hard to prove a connection.
My view is that hair dyes are a cancer risk you can do without. Avoid them.
If you’re set on dying your hair, use something natural. Try an herbal dye if you want to go darker, or lemon juice and sunlight if you want a lighter hair color. Henna is a safe hair dye, but the color may not appeal to many people.
5. Smell good the natural way
We already know perfumes and fragrances are guilty of triggering allergies and irritations. That’s because the perfume industry is riddled with toxic ingredients. Increasingly, those toxins are being linked to cancer. Sometimes the connection is indirect – as in the case of fragrances that trigger hormone disruption that in turn causes cancer.
Perfume makers call it “brand protection” when they don’t put a list of ingredients on their labels. They don’t want competitors to know their formula. The FDA shrugs at this since we don’t ingest perfumes. But toxins are still absorbed through your skin. This goes for all perfumed products, including creams, soaps, and so forth.
This one has an easy solution: use fragrance-free soaps and lotions. If you want to wear some type of fragrance, try a homemade perfume recipe made from essential oils.
6. Chuck the dirty shampoos
Conventional shampoos are yet another example of chemical-heavy products we rub on our skin. With ingredients like MSG, dioxane, propylene glycol (also the main toxic ingredient in industrial antifreeze!), sodium lauryl sulfate (used in garage cleaners), and a long list of other offenders… it’s a stretch to say you’re cleaning your hair.
Fortunately, some of the mega-companies that make shampoo are caving to public demand. At the end of 2013, iconic baby shampoo makers Johnson & Johnson finally removed formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane from their ingredient list.
We still have a long way to go. The only solution for now is to find a truly organic shampoo free from synthetic chemicals. Check the ingredients list for things you recognize and can pronounce, like aloe vera, shea butter, comfrey, and horsetail extract. Look for natural preservatives like citrus seed extracts and essential oils like sweet orange or peppermint.
7. Toss Your Toxin-Heavy Cosmetics
Most women are surprised to learn there’s a dizzying array of chemicals in their makeup products. In fact, 60% of lipsticks contain lead, a neurotoxin. Nail polishes are absolute chemical cocktails.
And here’s an astounding fact: The European Union has banned more than 1,000 ingredients from cosmetic use… yet the FDA has banned only eight. Worse, federal law allows companies to leave some chemicals off product labels to protect “trade secrets.” (Too bad they don’t have the same concern for your health.)
You’re exposed to these chemicals when you breathe in powders, swallow lipstick and lip balm or absorb them through the skin, or get bits of makeup in your eyes. The simple solution is to choose all-natural products and toss out any that contain man-made, synthetic chemicals – including synthetic fragrance.
But be warned – products labeled “organic” and “natural” can still contain petrochemicals. Your best bet is to check out Environmental Working Group’s “Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database,” which is an excellent resource for healthier natural products. Also look for the USDA organic seal. Or consider making your own makeup.
