Delaying breakfast prevents cancer?

Fasting for both diabetes and cancer prevention! I have always recommended fasting for cancer treatment but haven’t made it a point for fasting for cancer prevention. How about simply fasting an extra three hours a day to help prevent cancer? A study done by the University of California found that women who merely fasted for longer periods of time overnight had significantly better control over blood glucose concentrations and ultimately a lower cancer risk. For each three-hour increase in nighttime fasting they found an associated 4% lower postprandial glucose level – and this was regardless of how much women ate before fasting. Simply put, waiting longer in between the evening meal and breakfast reduces glucose levels and can reduce the breast cancer risk among women. But fasting is not even a recent discovery. In 75 AD, one of the favorite practices of Thessalus was to begin almost any disease treatment by prescribing an abstinence from all food for a period of three full days.

Fasting for health is a good thing!
