There’s one little-known solution that could be a complete game-changer when it comes to lung cancer prevention.
It’s a powerful natural botanical called kava.
Research shows kava prevented the formation of lung tumors in 99 percent of laboratory animals studied—an unprecedented result.
But the thing is, most mainstream doctors haven’t even heard of kava.
Today, I’ll explain why Dr. Marc Micozzi—one of the world’s foremost cancer researchers—says kava is “hushed up” in mainstream medicine—and how you can easily try it for yourself…
Why natural cancer treatments are completely ignored by mainstream
In Dr. Micozzi’s Breathe Better Lung Health Protocol, he states that kava is a natural cancer treatment that’s been “hiding” in plain sight.
It hasn’t garnered much interest from mainstream medicine for two main reasons.
First, because it’s natural, it can’t be patented and turned into a massively profitable blockbuster drug by Big Pharma.
Second, Dr. Micozzi notes that natural products like kava modify the growth of cancer cells and tumors instead of killing them outright.
“You see,” he says, “when the government screens natural products for ‘anti-cancer’ activity, it looks only for the ability to kill cancer cells. Unfortunately, chemicals that can kill cancer cells will also kill your normal cells, which has led to the tragic and unnecessary disaster that is cancer chemotherapy.”
“Because of the bias in the cancer industry, natural products that effectively address these issues aren’t able to make the leap from laboratory studies to hugely expensive human cancer treatment trials.”
That said, there is plenty of compelling research on kava’s cancer-preventing benefits…
Kava’s link to lung cancer prevention is no coincidence
Residents of Hawaii, Samoa, and other parts of Polynesia know kava well. They traditionally brew it into a tea for its anti-anxiety qualities.
But as Dr. Micozzi notes, kava is a member of the pepper family, which is known for its anti-cancer properties. Piper nigrans, or black pepper, contains piperine, which research has shown to be a very potent anti-cancer natural ingredient.
In one study, when researchers gave carcinogen-exposed mice a kava supplement daily, many of the mice failed to develop tumors. In addition, the type of negative DNA effects typically associated with heavy tobacco use were also significantly reduced.
Dr. Micozzi explains why this is such an important finding: “This lab evidence supports the long-held observation that people living in the South Pacific have dramatically lower rates of lung cancer.”
Residents of Fiji, Vanuatu, and Western Samoa smoke just as much tobacco as people in other countries, but incidences of lung cancer are much lower. Kava use has long been the suspected reason behind that difference.
For instance, the lung cancer rate in Fiji is only 5 to 10 percent of the U.S. rate. That’s a stunning 10- to 20-fold reduction in lung cancer—potentially just from using kava!
Dr. Micozzi puts these results into stark perspective: “Kava can decrease the risk of lung cancer as much as—or more than—heavy cigarette smoking is said to increase it.”
Dr. Micozzi’s recommendation for trying kava
If you look into kava for yourself, you might discover that it was at the center of some controversy a few years ago after a scare about possible liver toxicity. In fact, Dr. Micozzi himself was instrumental in helping to point out that the “evidence” against kava was baseless.
In short, he says, “There’s no harm in trying kava!”
Kava does have a natural relaxing effect, so it’s best taken at night.
According to Dr. Micozzi: “Millions of people have found it to be effective for anxiety at a dose of 200 to 400 mg. And for insomnia I recommend 60 to 120 mg of kava per day, preferably taken at bedtime.” (At this point, Dr. Micozzi notes that there’s not enough research to suggest a kava dose specifically for lung cancer prevention. But the recommendations for anxiety and insomnia are good general dosage guidelines for this promising herb.)
