There’s been a credible link between antibiotics and cancer. Here’s how that works: There’s a germ in your intestine that secretes a chemical that goes through the bloodstream from the intestine to the liver and triggers an “anti-cancer” effect there.
When you kill this germ with antibiotics, the chemical it once made is erased and so the liver never gets the trigger to produce its anticancer effect.
Without that germ, the liver becomes a little more vulnerable to liver cancer. It’s one small pathway. But is it the ONLY pathway? Are there OTHER germs that do the same thing in the liver and elsewhere? You bet there is.
