Worldwide in the early 21st century, preventable cancers linked to lifestyle factors were responsible for several million new cancer cases annually. Such cancers are especially common in developed countries. For example, in the United States some 25 to 30 percent of major cancers, such as colorectal cancer , endometrial cancer, breast cancer , and esophageal cancer , have been linked to obesity and physical inactivity. In fact, in 2012 in that country, researchers estimated that about percent of newly diagnosed cancer cases in men and percent in women were associated with overweight or obesity. The impact of obesity on cancer risk varies widely by cancer type. Likewise, about one-third of cancers commonly diagnosed in the United Kingdom are considered preventable through improvements in diet, physical activity, and weight control.
Colostrum Replacers & Supplements - Do not confuse these two types of products. Newborns must have colostrum during the first hours after birth. If the dam is colostrum deficient, you must use a colostrum replacer. The best colostrum replacer is colostrum saved (and frozen) from does on your property who have already kidded. This colostrum will have antibodies that provide the kids needed immunity to the organisms existing in your particular location. If you don't have a supply of frozen colostrum, then you must use a commercially-prepared goat colostrum replacer (*not* "supplement"). Do not use colostrum or colostrum replacer beyond the first 48 hours of the kid's life. Switch to goat milk or goat milk replacer. Colostrum has already done its job for the newborn after 48 hours and the kid's body can better digest goat milk. I use Ultra-Bac 24 all-species milk replacer (Milk Products).
