Why Are so Many Young People Getting Cancer?




Mercola | 1 April 2024





  • Global cancer incidence is increasing, particularly among those under 50, with a notable rise in breast, uterine, prostate, lung, colorectal, pancreatic, and stomach cancers, with early-onset breast cancer incidence climbing by 3.8% annually between 2016 and 2019
  • The global death toll from early-onset cancers has surged by nearly 28% from 1990 to 2019, with predictions indicating a potential rise in mortality rates
  • Dietary changes, particularly the increase in obesity and consumption of processed foods rich in linoleic acid (LA), a polyunsaturated fat found in seed oils, are identified as major contributors to the rising cancer rates
  • LA intake is linked to several mechanisms promoting cancer, including disruption in energy production in cells, hormonal imbalances, increased oxidative stress, and damage to cellular and mitochondrial membranes
  • Limit your LA intake and avoid processed foods and certain animal products to mitigate your cancer risk
