Radiation can kill cancer. This is a fact. But radiation also causes collateral damage to healthy cells. This is also a fact. I know because I have experienced both the positive and negative effects of radiation therapy. The challenge lung cancer patients face is that their radiation therapy treatment may damage their heart. These two organs are quite near each other…
Collateral damage aka side effects from conventional toxic cancer therapies is nothing new. If you are like me however, you trust your oncologist or radiation oncologist in this case, not to expose you to a therapy that can kill you.
Keep in mind that, according to the study linked and excerpted below, oncologists simply don’t understand certain negative aspects of some of the toxic therapies they administer.
If you are considering radiation therapy anywhere near your heart or if you have already had radiation therapy anywhere near your heart please consider both resveritrol and CoQ10. I supplement with
to keep my heart healthy and I recommend them for you as well. I also exercise, modestly, but frequently. I take a sauna several times each week and my diet is largely fruits and veggies.
According to the past five years of annual echocardiograms, my heart health is either stable or improving depending on the metric that you look at. All without conventional heart meds.
I am both a long-term cancer survivor and cancer coach. Do you have lung cancer? Please scroll down the page and leave a post if you would like to learn more about both conventional and non-conventional anti-lung cancer therapies.
“Radiotherapy treatment for lung cancer could have a negative effect on the health of your heart new research has found…
Scientists from The University of Manchester’s Division of Cancer Sciences and The Christie NHS Foundation say it (radiotherapy treatment for lung cancer) could reduce survival rates in those receiving the therapy by up to 20 per cent.
Radiotherapy plays a major role in curative-intent treatment of lungcancer and advances in radiation technology have enabled doses to be delivered to a larger proportion of patients. However, over the past two years, evidence has emerged showing radioactivity of the heart from radiotherapy is increasing mortality rates…
“We found that the radiation may cause an extra burden on the heart and even small amounts of radiation may have an effect. We have identified the top of the heart in particular as a dose-sensitive region, where excess dose results in poorer patient survival.”
Patients receiving a higher dose of radiotherapy to this region of the heart have a 20% higher risk of early death than those getting a lower dose he says. One of the key reasons for such high numbers in lung cancer patients is that their tumours can often be much closer to the heart than other forms of cancer. This means some radiation will inevitably hit the organ, having an adverse effect…”
“This study is the first to demonstrate that resveratrol has radioprotective effects in vivo. These results support the use of resveratrol as a radioprotector with the potential for widespread application…”
