The Middle East has the lowest cancer rates in the world. Today, we’re going to talk about why.

People in the Middle East consume a lot of sugar, and sugar feeds cancer. But, even though diabetes is common in the Middle East, cancer is not.

Countries with high rates of cancer:
1. Australia
2. Ireland
3. Hungary
4. the United States

Why the Middle East has low rates of cancer:
1. Many people participate in fasting (Ramadan)
Benefits of fasting for lowering the risk of cancer:
• Fasting starves cancer
• Fasting stimulates autophagy
• Fasting generates new immune cells
• Fasting helps decrease inflammation
• Fasting increases antioxidant networks in the body

2. Many people consume certain spices with anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties, such as:
• Turmeric
• Saffron
• Cardamom
• Nutmeg
• Caraway
• Cinnamon
• Coriander
Other foods popular in the Middle East that have anti-cancer properties:
• Black seeds
• Olive oil
• Dill
• Sesame seeds
• Dates

3. There is low tobacco usage among women in the Middle East
• Smoking tobacco, chewing tobacco, and vaping are linked to cancer

4. Alcohol is prohibited in most areas of the Middle East
• Drinking alcohol increases the risk of six different types of cancer

Potential reasons why the cancer rates in the Middle East aren’t even lower:
• High consumption of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup
• A high rate of obesity
• High rates of people with low vitamin D
• Polymorphism
