A new study released recently from public health researchers at the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis demonstrates that over half of all cancers are preventable.

Dr. Raymond Francis, MIT-trained scientist and in-demand speaker at health conferences worldwide, has known for many years that we already have the means available to end this epidemic of chronic disease.

cancerCited as ‘one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease,’ Dr. Francis shares this knowledge in his best-selling book, Never Be Sick Again (Health Communications, Inc.).

His revolutionary ‘Beyond Health Model’ is already in use by people around the world who are using it to cure themselves of ‘incurable’ diseases – just as he did twenty-five years ago when he was told by doctors that he was terminal and conventional medicine could do nothing. And the model outlined in his book is so simple it is being taught to children!

According to the American Cancer Society, over 1,638,000 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. and over 577,000 Americans will die from this disease this year.

“The health of our people is deteriorating rapidly. More than 3 out of 4 Americans now have a diagnosable disease and the healthcare costs are threatening to bankrupt our country,” says Dr. Francis.

The Siteman study shows that smoking alone is responsible for one-third of all cancer cases, and an additional 20 percent is caused by excess body weight and obesity.

Correcting these two lifestyle choices would drop the cancer rate by a whopping 50 percent!

While researchers argue that the greatest emphasis should be put into preventative measures, there are many factors that stand in the way and it would truly need to be a society-wide effort that included changes by government, doctors, health insurance, and individuals to make it a reality.

People need to understand and believe that when they make these difficult lifestyle choices, it is possible to prevent cancer.

Dr. Raymond Francis is an internationally recognized leader in the field of optimal health maintenance and his revolutionary new understanding of health is based on cutting-edge cellular biochemistry and molecular biology that prevents and reverses disease.

Passionate about restoring our nation’s health with an effective alternative, this MIT-trained scientist and chairman of The Project To End Disease (TPED) has devoted his life to reversing this downward trend of bad health in our country.

Dr. Francis was the host of the syndicated ‘Beyond Health Radio Show’ for 16 years and has made guest appearances on over 2000 radio and television shows.

Dr. Francis says it all: “health is a choice that has not yet been chosen.” Now it’s up to society to make the right choice!
