Indole 3 Carbinol Powder May Help The Elderly Fight Cancer - Ⅰ
- Sep 19, 2019 -

People of any age may suffer from cancer, but medical statistics show that the incidence of most cancers increases with age, and more than 51% of cancer patients are older than 65 years old. Why is the incidence of cancer higher in the elderly? Current research suggests that there are the following reasons:

1. It has passed the latent period.

It is recognized that 80%-90% of human cancers are directly or indirectly related to exposure to carcinogens. When the carcinogenic factors act on the human body, they will not happen immediately. There is a long latency period before the occurrence of cancer. From exposure to carcinogens to the onset of cancer, this long process is called "carcinogenic latent period" in medicine, generally 10-40 years, generally 20 years. Therefore, if you are frequently exposed to carcinogens at the age of 20 to 30, you will not get sick until you are 40 to 50 years old. In this way, the incidence of cancer in middle-aged and elderly people is higher.

2. Endocrine dysfunction

In old age, the endocrine system is disordered and the hormones in the body are unbalanced. It is easy for some hormones to continue acting on sensitive tissues. That will lead to abnormal proliferation of some tissues and cells, or even malignant transformation.

Indole 3 carbinol powder contains I3C which may lower the risk of many types of cancer.
