As with chemotherapy, radiotherapy is harmful to both cancer cells and healthy cells alike. This inevitably results in it causing side effects, including the triggering of new cancers. In other words, rather than curing a patient’s cancer, radiation can instead increase the risk of additional malignancies occurring. Many studies have found this to be the case in breast cancer treatment, with research showing that patients receiving radiotherapy have a significantly excess risk of second cancers.
In contrast to the risks of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, studies conducted by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have shown that micronutrients effectively control multiple steps in the development of breast cancer. The specific micronutrient combination employed in this research includes vitamin C, the amino acids lysine and proline, and the green tea extract epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Inhibiting the progression and spread (metastasis) of breast cancer, the results demonstrate that nutritional and Cellular Medicine approaches have real potential in the prevention and control of this disease.
