Study finds that this common blood pressure drug may increase risk for lung cancer...
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, including benazepril, captopril and enalapril are prescribed for high blood pressure and heart disease.

A recent study by McGill University in Montreal, and published the medical journal, BMJ, has recently found that patients taking these drugs for more than five years may be 14% more likely to get lung cancer than people not on these drugs. The risk increased to 31% for patients taking the drugs for more than 10 years. This is a significant increase in risk.

The link between ACE inhibitors and lung cancer...
 
The reason for this elevated cancer risk is that these drugs increase the carcinogenic  chemicals called bradykinin and substance P in the lungs. These harmful chemicals have been found in lung cancer tissue, and may stimulate the growth of cancer cells.

The study looked at nearly one million British patients who were taking blood pressure drugs. And, while the researchers were quick to qualify that this was an observational study and that it doesn't definitively prove that these drugs cause cancer, it should be a red flag for doctors.

Patients should also take control of their health and weigh up the benefits of these drugs against the increased risk for cancer... Especially when you can treat high blood pressure naturally. Find out how below...
