Throat Cancer Prevention With Your Breakfast Ceareal

Folate May Prevent Throat Cancer

Research has shown that Folate or Folic Acid, is capable of preventing throat cancer. It has been shown to even heal precancerous lesions.

"According to a new study in the journal Cancer, when [Giovanni Almadori, MD and other lead] researchers gave 15mgs of Folic Acid (daily for six months) to 43 patients with precancerous throat lesions, 31 of them experienced a 50 percent reduction in the lesion size. Leafy greens, citrus fruits, breakfast cereals, and breads are rich in Folate. Get at least 400mcg (micrograms) per day. A Folic Acid supplement is cheap insurance that you’ll hit that number daily.

Funny thing though is that to get 400mcg of Folate you would have to eat 15-20 slices of sandwich bread a day or you could just eat a bowl of a nutritious breakfast cereal in the morning and get twice the 400mcg of Folate you need. Here’s to breakfast in the morning and here’s to staving cancer as best as we can through our diets.
