Increase your risk
of pancreatic cancer by 87%
by drinking this…

Pancreatic cancer is still one of the hardest cancers to cure. Very few doctors know what it takes to battle this disease. So it’s very important to prevent it. And now it looks like there’s a very easy way to do just that.

A new study out of Singapore found that a common beverage increases your risk of pancreatic cancer by 87%. That’s an astounding increase in risk. It means avoiding this one beverage will go a long way toward avoiding this killer disease.

During just one 10-minute shower, your body can absorb more chlorine than if you drank EIGHT GLASSES of tap water.

The beverage? It’s the same one that causes osteoporosis, heart disease, immune deficiency, and diabetes. It’s sugar-laden soft drinks.

These researchers tracked 60,524 participants over 14 years. They found that those who consumed two or more soft drinks a week increased their risk of pancreatic cancer by 87%. Sugar may be to blame. It increases insulin, which fans the flames of cancer.

However, it’s also possible that those who drink a lot of soft drinks also have other aspects of a deficient diet. Nevertheless, I continue to push for zero tolerance with soft drinks. When I see Coca Cola coming out of a mountain spring, I’ll drink it.

Terri and I recently visited the Santa Cruz amusement park. They had a special for unlimited rides for one price. But to get the special deal, you had to present a Pepsi can at the ticket booth. We did, two in fact, one for each of us. Much to the surprise of the ticket agent, both cans were unopened.

Stay away from soft drinks. They’re great for the taste buds — but terrible for your health.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,
