Drug-free cervical cancer prevention can save kid’s lives
Q: My pediatrician has been pushing me to get my young teen daughter a cervical cancer vaccine. I want my daughter to be protected, but I’m wary of this vaccine. Are there any other ways to prevent this cancer?
Dr. Wright: I’m glad parents are starting to trust their instincts to avoid Gardasil, which is NOT a cancer vaccine.Trusting your instincts can protect you in even in your investment related decisions. With the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies several crypto robots like the Bitcoin Code have come to fore. The review of this trading robot at https://cybermentors.org.uk/bitcoin-code/bitcoin-code-should-you-invest/ will provide a clear picture about only Bitcoin Code and not all crypto robots just like gardasil – It’s supposed to reduce risk of some (but not all) HPV infections, which can develop into cervical cancer.

Young women can get a huge dose of cervical cancer protection by following Grandma’s advice: Eat your vegetables. Specifically, you’ll want to stock up on green vegetables and vegetables from the cruciferous family. (Broccoli, cauliflower, and kale are three cruciferous standouts.)
One of the early clues that cruciferous vegetables may reduce the risk of cervical cancer came from studies of laryngeal and/or vocal cord polyps, also known as recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). Although frequently benign, this condition can proceed to actual cancer, which can be fatal. RRP is caused by HPV, specifically HPV-6 and HPV-11, two of the four main HPV types that cause cervical cancer.
In a 1998 report from Long Island Jewish Hospital, researchers noted a close connection between estrogen metabolism and the growth of HPV viruses that cause RRP.
They wrote: “Our results show an inverse relationship between the ratio of C-2 to C-16 alpha hydroxylated estrogens and the severity of RRP.” Translated into English: The lower the “2/16″ estrogen ratio, the worse the RRP; the higher the “2/16″ ratio, the less severe the RRP.
In this study, the researchers asked RRP sufferers to eat significantly more cruciferous vegetables. They found that compounds in these vegetables led to increases in the “2/16″ estrogen ratio, which correlated with improvement in RRP.
Another study on RRP also found that a natural substance found in cruciferous vegetables called indole-3-carbinol (I3C) can favorably influence HPV-associated tumors. Researchers asked volunteers to take I3C to explore its effects on RRP. Of the 33 volunteers, more than 30 percent had complete remission after five years. Another 30 percent had a reduction in the growth of RRP.
In addition, young women should make sure they’re getting an ample amount of folate in their diet. Research shows that folate can reverse pre-cancer of the cervix (cervical dysplasia) and very early cervical cancer (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia).
