Health Nugget - Higher C-Reactive Protein may Signal Higher Cancer Risk

Posted by Edna & Roger Boisjoli on September 22, 2011 at 5:15 PM

We are all now familiar with the fact that elevated C-Reactive Protein levels, which is an indication of inflammation in our arteries and bodies, is a very important indicator of increased risk of heart disease. More than 10,000 Danish citizens participated in a long-term study (up to 16 years) that showed that individuals with a baseline CRP value greater than 3 mg/L were 30% more likely to develop cancer. The individuals with elevated CRP at the time of their diagnosis of cancer did poorly and had a dramatically higher risk of early death.

The 12-Week Healthy for Life Program located at was shown in a clinical trial under the guidelines of the FDA at the University of Colorado Medical School to decrease the CRP levels in the participants by 27%. Healthy lifestyles (Healthy Diet, Modest Exercise, along with Supplementation) will significantly decrease your risk of both heart disease and now cancer.
