This Is The Only Cancer Screening You May Ever Need

Medical science says that invasive procedures such as biopsies and early screenings are the answer to cancer progression, but this is not prevention. While there are many types of cancer screening tests, cancer prevention may be possible years ahead of its development with one simple blood test.

Cancer-Related Deaths Are Rising

According to the National Cancer Society, in 2016, an estimated 1,685,210 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and 595,690 people will die from the disease.The most common cancers in 2016 were breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, colon and rectum cancer, bladder cancer, melanoma of the skin, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, thyroid cancer, kidney cancer, leukemia, endometrial cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In 2017, according to The American Cancer Society, there will be an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed and 600,920 cancer deaths in the US.

Although There Are Many Types Of Cancer Screening Tests, Screening Is Not Prevention

Generally, the American Cancer Association strongly suggests that screening tests could alleviate much of the suffering and death from cancer. But is this true? Is early screening the answer, or is it prevention? Although there are many types of cancer screening tests available, screening is not prevention. Screening, as we know it today, with expensive procedures such as MRIs, mammograms, scans and more, only helps to identify cancer once it appears. It does not help to prevent it. But heading off cancer – staying ahead of its development -- now that’s empowerment.

Heading Off Cancer Before It Starts

Therefore, you may be able to know where your fate lies years ahead of time instead of believing you are doomed to get cancer because your parents or uncle or cousin had it. It is not true that cancer exists in all of us, lying dormant until conditions are right for it to grow. That is a tale told to justify the millions of cancer diagnoses as a norm. Cancer is an anomaly and should not be as rampant as it has become today. A healthy body and a strong immune system do not allow cancer cells to grow. Rather, it is important to take note of a tumor-making virus that lies dormant in your body for years, gets bypassed by the immune system and has the ability to become cancerous. It is also important to take note that the one saving grace is that this virus can be knocked back naturally.

The Epstein Barr Virus Is A Tumor-Maker

You can stop waiting for cancer to strike and you may also be able to do something about it by taking a routine blood test to identify if you have the Epstein Barr Virus. The Epstein-Barr virus, according to an article published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases is a known tumor-maker.

The Epstein Barr Virus is a tumorigenic herpes virus that causes infectious mononucleosis and is associated with a variety of human tumors of both lymphoid (Burkitt lymphoma, Hodgkin disease, and B lymphoproliferative disease) and epithelial cell (nasopharyngeal carcinoma) origin.

It All Starts With Mononucleosis

Epstein-Barr infection usually occurs during childhood as glandular fever and is most commonly associated with mononucleosis. Additionally, many mononucleosis cases can also be mild and develop in those who’ve simply had sore throats. Either way, the virus is highly contagious particularly if you are exposed to someone who is contagious. Once you’ve been infected, Epstein Barr virus establishes its home in your organs (most likely your liver) for life. There it can lay dormant and undetected by your immune system for years until it is ready to strike.

Epstein Barr Virus May Be Responsible For Some Big Name Cancers

The American Cancer Association lists Epstein Barr Virus as an infection that can lead to several cancers. Research done in Southern China has found that that there is a close relationship between Epstein Barr infection and lung cancer. Additionally, research published in the Journal of National Cancer Institute has found that Epstein Barr Virus and breast cancer are linked. What is more, research out of the University of South Wales has found that the Epstein Barr virus has also been linked to prostate cancer.

Why Aren’t More People Testing For The Epstein Barr Virus?

Epstein Barr Virus is so common and many medical practitioners don’t know enough about the virus’ role in cancer to treat it as anything serious. What is more, science hasn’t fully explored the virus’ connection to chronic symptoms, known as autoimmune disease. Lastly, proper funding has not allowed for further research into Epstein Barr’s role in human health to continue. But, that’s about to change.

In his latest book, Epstein Barr Virus expert Anthony William, NY Times Best Selling Author of the Medical Medium Series; Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal, Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits & Vegetables, and Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr, goes into enlightening detail about the Epstein Barr Virus as the unknown cause of most cancers, as well as a cause of so-called mystery illness or autoimmune disease. In the books, Williams goes in-depth in explaining the unstudied ways in which cancer originates, and empowers his readers to knock back Epstein Barr Virus in the only effective way--

The Epstein Barr Test May Be The Only Cancer Screening Method You Need

History of mononucleosis needs to be a cancer screening question at your practitioner's office. If it is not, do not hesitate to mention it to your practitioner and request an Epstein Barr Test. If you have had mononucleosis and/or glandular fever or even frequent sore throats as a teenager, you are likely to have the Epstein Barr Virus, even if your doctor tells you that you once had the virus but now don’t, according to William, since once contracted, Epstein Barr virus houses up in the body for life.

Knowing Can Be Healing

Knowing there is something you can do to prevent cancer is extremely empowering. While this certainly isn’t a guarantee of not getting cancer, it is relief to know there’s another possibility to invasive screenings, unnecessary exposure to radiation, and believing that you have faulty genes.

William’s strategy for knocking back Epstein Barr Virus into dormancy involves strengthening the immune system. This is done, naturally by eliminating triggers from the diet and making lifestyle changes that don’t fuel the virus and allow it to proliferate.
