Diet Recommendations For Cancer Patients

 

Every clinic we work with has a different diet plan.

 

You can find dozens of diets on the internet. We think that extreme diets are not good for you, and diets such as the ketogenic diet, which is very low in carbs and protein - will restrict your body's ability to heal. You need healthy food for energy.

 

Below are the foods you SHOULD be eating:

 

Vegetables - Vegetables are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. You can vary your diet by varying your cooking methods. Try your veggies steamed, sautéed, raw and in soups and salads. Eat lots of dark, leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables are best for cancer patients.

 

Eat as much as you want of the following vegetables: Cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, endive, spinach, Bok Choy, lettuce, red cabbage, Swiss chard, mustard greens, cauliflower, water cress, kale. Skip the iceberg lettuce, there is absolutely no nutritional value in eating iceberg lettuce.

 

Help yourself to onions, garlic, parsnip, lotus root, leeks, turnips, red and white radishes, beets, acorn squash, carrots, scallions, summer squash, celery, rutabaga, cucumbers, zucchini, sweet potatoes (NOT white potatoes), fennel, yams, peas, artichoke, kohlrabi, chives, green and red peppers, tomato, eggplant, mushrooms.

 

Sugar - many nutritionists say that sugar feeds cancer and makes it grow. When making food choices, always read the labels and choose fresh foods that are low in sugar. Remember, ALL ingredients ending with CROSE such as sucrose, lactose, fructose, etc. are sugars. Also molasses, fruit juices, etc. are added sugars. Try to eliminate as much sugar as possible from your diet.

 

Fruit - eat fruit only in moderation. Fruit that grows in the north, where there is snow, is best. A cold snap in the growing season takes most of the sugar out of fruit, so apples, pears, peaches, apricots, plums and berries are a good choice. Avoid any fruit that grows in the south - these are pure sugar. Stay away from bananas, oranges, tangerines, pineapple, mango and papaya.

 

A word here about raw foods- we do NOT recommend a totally raw diet. Raw foods are good for weight loss because it takes so much body energy to digest. But cancer patients need that energy for healing, so while salads and some veggies are ok raw, it may be wise to gently cook most of your food.

 

Beans - green, great white northern, Anasazi, lentils, navy, black, turtle, Lima, fava, chick peas, kidney, black eyed peas, pinto.

 

Organic seeds and nuts - pumpkin, sunflower, sesame seed, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, nut butters, chestnuts, pine nuts, pecans.

 

Grains - Whole grains are part of a healthy diet. Try whole grain bread (NOT whole wheat) whole grain pastas, whole grain flours for cooking.

 

Never buy white bread or use white flours- these immediately convert to glucose (sugar) in your body. Use brown rice, never white rice. Buy whole grain cereals.

 

Oils - Olive oil and sunflower oil are your best options. Do not use canola oil.

 

Use organic butter, not margarine (margarine is lard with yellow food coloring).

 

Dairy - use nut milks like almond milk. Use organic dairy only, read sugar content on labels.

 

Never use soy milk - soy is a natural estrogen and can feed certain cancers.

 

Herbal Teas- Herbals teas instead of coffee. (Coffee is ok in moderation).

 

Do not use artificial sweeteners, as we learn more about them, the news is not so good. Use lemon or a bit of Tupelo honey in your tea.

 

Spices- use onions, garlic and any natural spices such as chives, onions, cilantro, parsley, dill and peppers to flavor your food instead of salt.

 

Protein - Organic, free range chicken, cold water fish (not farm raised), beans and brown rice. If you can get organic beef, it is ok in moderation.

 

AVOID white rice, white potatoes, sweets, soft drinks, fruit juice (concentrated sugar), processed meats and foods, fast food.

Organic Coffee Enemas

 

Organic coffee enemas are prescribed at many holistic clinics.

 

They are simple to do at home. Use only organic coffee (not decaf). Make a pot of coffee – two tablespoons to 8 cups of water. Let the coffee cool to comfortable warmth. Put a towel in the bathtub, and hook the enema bag over the faucet. Pour half the coffee into the enema bag. Position yourself on the towel, and insert the enema nozzle.

 

The goal is to lie on your right side for 10 minutes, then your left side for 10 minutes. When you are ready, keep the nozzle in, sit on the toilet, and release. This cleans out the lower bowel. As soon as you finish on the toilet, pour the rest of the coffee into the enema bag and get back in the tub. Do the whole thing all over again. The second time, the caffeine will be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. As it makes its way to the liver, it causes the liver to contract, and that will eliminate toxins (the liver is where we store lots of garbage, including residue from medications, alcohol, chemotherapy, etc.)

 

The first time you try this, you may only be able to hold the coffee for a minute or so. It takes a few times to relax and get the hang of it. Patients say they feel terrific and energized after a coffee enema.

 

IMPORTANT CAUTIONS:

 

ALWAYS take a high quality multi-mineral supplement on the day you do an enema. Coffee enemas leach the minerals out of your body and can make you feel very weak.

 

Liquid multi-mineral formulas are best. They may be found in the refrigerated section at your local health food store.

 

If you are not a coffee drinker, do the enema in the morning. If you do it late in the day, you will get a caffeine buzz and not be able to sleep.

 

Do coffee enemas three times a week for a good cleanse, and then only once a week after that, unless directed to do more often by a physician. Patients on chemotherapy may be advised to do more, but only do additional enemas on your physician's advice.

The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can “Sleep At Night”

Gardasil and Cervarix don't work, are dangerous, and weren't tested.

 

Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher in the development of the human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. She is the latest to come forward and question the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines. She made the surprising announcement at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination, which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2nd through 4th, 2009. Her speech was supposed to promote the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but she instead turned on her corporate bosses in a very public way. When questioned about the presentation, audience members remarked that they came away feeling that the vaccines should not be used.

 

"I came away from the talk with the perception that the risk of adverse side effects is so much greater than the risk of cervical cancer, I couldn't help but question why we need the vaccine at all." – Joan Robinson

 

Dr. Harper explained in her presentation that the cervical cancer risk in the U.S. is already extremely low, and that vaccinations are unlikely to have any effect upon the rate of cervical cancer in the United States. In fact, 70% of all H.P.V. infections resolve themselves without treatment in a year, and the number rises to well over 90% in two years. Harper also mentioned the safety angle. All trials of the vaccines were done on children aged 15 and above, despite them currently being marketed for 9-year-olds. So far, 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects from Gardasil alone to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (V.A.E.R.S.), and this number only reflects parents who underwent the hurdles required for reporting adverse reactions. At the time of writing, 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines. The reported side effects include Guillian Barré Syndrome (paralysis lasting for years, or permanently — sometimes eventually causing suffocation), lupus, seizures, blood clots, and brain inflammation. Parents are usually not made aware of these risks. Dr. Harper, the vaccine developer, claimed that she was speaking out, so that she might finally be able to sleep at night.

 

"About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have H.P.V. at some stage of their life. Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn't, and isn't treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer." – Dr. Diane Harper

 

One must understand how the establishment's word games are played to truly understand the meaning of the above quote, and one needs to understand its unique version of "science". When they report that untreated cases "can" lead to something that "may" lead to cervical cancer, it really means that the relationship is merely a hypothetical conjecture that is profitable if people actually believe it. In other words, there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent, but it is marketed to do that nonetheless. In fact, there is no actual evidence that the vaccine can prevent any cancer. From the manufacturers own admissions, the vaccine only works on 4 strains out of 40 for a specific venereal disease that dies on its own in a relatively short period, so the chance of it actually helping an individual is about about the same as the chance of him being struck by a meteorite. Why do nine-year-old girls need vaccinations for extremely rare and symptom-less venereal diseases that the immune system usually kills anyway?

16 Health Benefits of Lemons

by Diana Herrington, www.Care2.com

 

The Alkalizing Powerfood


Lemons are acidic to the taste, but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact they are one of the most alkaline-forming foods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body.


Lemons are a favorite all over the world and an essential food in kitchens everywhere.


"We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons." –Alfred E. Newman


16 Health Benefits of Lemons:


1. Lemons are alkalizing for the body: Lemons are acidic to begin with but they are alkaline-forming on body fluids helping to restore balance to the body's pH.


2. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work against infections like the flu and colds.


3. Your liver loves lemons: "The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile," says Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden. Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier.


4. Cleans your bowels: Lemons increase peristalsis in the bowels, helping to create a bowel movement thus eliminating waste and helping with regularity. Add the juice of one lemon to warm water and drink first thing in the morning.


5. Scurvy is treated by giving one to two ounces of lemon juice diluted with water every two to four hours. In 1747, a naval surgeon named James Lind cured scurvy with fresh lemons. To this day, the British Navy requires ships to carry enough lemons so that every sailor could have one ounce of juice a day. In the past, lemons were replaced with limes; this is where the English got their nickname "limeys." Watch this video: "Scurvy Pirates and the Lemon of Love"


6. The citric acid in lemon juice helps to dissolve gallstones, calcium deposits, and kidney stones.

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.

 

7. Vitamin C in lemons helps to neutralize free radicals linked to aging and most types of disease.


8. The lemon peel contains the potent phytonutrient tangeretin, which has been proven to be effective for brain disorders like Parkinson's disease.


9. In India, Ayurveda medicine values the lemon as a fruit and for its properties. It is sour, warm, promoter of gastric fire, light, good for vision, pungent and astringent.


10. It destroys intestinal worms.


11. When there is insufficient oxygen and difficulty in breathing (such as when mountain climbing) lemons are very helpful. The first man to reach the top of Mt. Everest, Edmund Hillary, said that his success on Mt. Everest was greatly due to lemons.


12. Lemons have powerful antibacterial properties; experiments have found the juice of lemons destroy the bacteria of malaria, cholera, diphtheria, typhoid and other deadly diseases.


13. Blood vessels are strengthened by the vitamin P (bioflavinoids) in lemon thus prevents internal hemorrhage. Also, making it useful in treating high blood pressure.


14. The symptoms of eye disorders, including diabetic retinopathy have been shown in research to improve due to the rutin, found in lemons.


15. Lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds, including naturally occurring limonene; oil which slows or halts the growth of cancer tumors in animals and flavonol glycosides which stop cell division in cancer cells.


16. According to The Reams Biological Ionization Theory (RBTI), the lemon is the ONLY food in the world that is anionic (an ion with a negative charge). All other foods are cationic (the ion has a positive charge.) This makes it extremely useful to health as it is the interaction between anions and cations that ultimately provides all cell energy.

 

History, Trivia and Interesting Lemon Facts:


Fashionable ladies used lemon juice as a way to redden their lips during the European Renaissance.


The lemon is a small evergreen tree native to Asia (as well as the fruit that grows on the tree).


The lemon is thought to have originated in the Indus Valley (a Bronze Age civilization in South Asia) because of a lemon-shaped earring from 2500 BC found by archaeologists in the area.


Lemons have been in cultivation around the Mediterranean from as early as the first century AD.


Lemon trees produce fruit all year round. One tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons in a year.


Once upon a time lemons were presented as gifts to kings because they were so rare.


California and Arizona produce 95 percent of the entire U.S. lemon crop.


Lemon Nutrition:


Lemons contain vitamin C, citric acid, flavonoids, B-complex vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber.
Lemons contain more potassium than apples or grapes. Potassium is beneficial to the heart.

How to Pick and Use Lemons

 

Heavier lemons will have the most mineral content and sugar, thus thick-skinned lemons will be lighter than thin-skinned lemons and will have less sweetness and fewer minerals.
The ones with the most juice will have finely-grained texture peels.


Lemons should be fully yellow; the ones with green tinges have not fully ripened and will be very acidic.


Over-ripe lemons will have a wrinkling look, soft or hard patches and will not be a vibrant yellow.


Lemons stay fresh kept at room temperature (not in sunlight) for about seven to 10 days; or store them in the refrigerator crisper for about four to five weeks.


How to use lemons:


"When life gives you a lemon... squeeze it, mix it with six ounces of distilled water and drink twice daily." –Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden


A bowl of fresh lemons will add fragrance and color to a room for days.


Alkalize with lemon water.


To reducing sodium intake, squeeze fresh lemon on salads, steamed vegetables, soups and stews.


Roll a lemon on the counter a few times before squeezing to maximize the amount of juice.


Lemon juice can be stored for later use by putting freshly squeezed lemon juice in ice cube trays until frozen, then store them in containers in the freezer.


Dried lemon zest should be stored in a cool and dry place in an airtight glass container.


The zest of fresh lemon is a wonderful addition to cakes, cookies and in vegetables.


Finally...try a Lemon Facial Cleanser ...as recommended by Dr. Oz.


Lemon Cautions:


Pure lemon juice contains acid which is harmful to tooth enamel. Always dilute with water before drinking it.


Lemons that are not washed properly, like the ones you get in restaurants, may include potentially pathogenic microbes.

 

Detoxification Tips for Cancer Patients

For patients who've undergone chemotherapy, or for anyone who would like to cleanse their body, there are some simple things you can do at home.

 

First, drink lots of pure mountain spring water – the higher the source, the better. Do not drink distilled water – distilled water is 'dead' water – all of the health-giving minerals have been removed. Avoid caffeine, soft drinks, tap water, hard liquors, frozen drinks and fruit juice (which is concentrated sugar).

 

Gently bouncing on a rebounder – a small trampoline – is another way to increase your circulation and stimulate your lymph system to flush toxins from the body. Just bounce lightly – the balls of your feet never have to leave the surface of the rebounder. Start with just a few minutes, and work up to 15 minutes a day.

 

Also, try to get at least 15 minutes or outdoor exercise a day – exercising in the fresh air can reduce stress and increase circulation of the blood and lymph.

 

Another great de-stressor is laughter. Keep a positive attitude. Be kind. Smile. Hug. Believe.

This is a great read!

ASPARTAME

Roaches and ants won’t eat it, cats and dogs won’t eat it, even house flies won’t eat it — but the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) serves Aspartame to you with their approval and the approval of the Monsanto Chemical Company.

 

The FDA and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have received nearly 7,000 complaints, including five deaths, attributed to the use of aspartame in food products since the FDA first permitted limited use in 1981.

 

A number of researchers and doctors around the country object not only to the product itself, but to the questionable preliminary research that led the FDA to approve it’s use.

 

There are 90 documented symptoms including: Headaches, Muscle spasms, Irritability, Heart palpitations, Loss of taste, Joint pain, Dizziness, Weight gain, Tachycardia (heart racing), Breathing difficulty, Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), Blurred vision, Seizures, Rashes, Insomnia, Anxiety attacks, Vertigo, Hearing loss, Nausea, Depression, Blindness, Slurred Speech, Memory Loss, Fatigue, Numbness.

 

Breast Biopsies Leave Room for Doubt, Study Finds

The New York Times - By DENISE GRADYMARCH 17, 2015

 

Breast biopsies are good at telling the difference between healthy tissue and cancer, but less reliable for identifying more subtle abnormalities, a new study finds.

 

Because of the uncertainty, women whose results fall into the gray zone between normal and malignant — with diagnoses like “atypia” or “ductal carcinoma in situ” — should seek second opinions on their biopsies, researchers say. Misinterpretation can lead women to have surgery and other treatments they do not need, or to miss out on treatments they do need.


The new findings, reported Tuesday in JAMA,challenge the common belief that a biopsy is the gold standard and will resolve any questions that might arise from an unclear mammogram orultrasound.


In the United States, about 1.6 million women a year have breast biopsies; about 20 percent of the tests find cancer. Ten percent identify atypia, a finding that cells inside breast ducts are abnormal but not cancerous. About 60,000 women each year are found to have ductal carcinoma in situ, or D.C.I.S., which also refers to abnormal cells that are confined inside the milk ducts and so are not considered invasive; experts disagree about whether D.C.I.S. is cancer.


“It is often thought that getting the biopsy will give definitive answers, but our study says maybe it won’t,” said Dr. Joann G. Elmore, a professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle and the first author of the new study on the accuracy of breast biopsies.


Her team asked pathologists to examine biopsy slides, then compared their diagnoses with those given by a panel of leading experts who had seen the same slides. There were some important differences, especially in the gray zone.


An editorial in JAMA called the findings “disconcerting.” It said the study should be a call to action for pathologists and breast cancer scientists to improve the accuracy of biopsy readings, by consulting with one another more often on challenging cases and by creating clearer definitions for various abnormalities so that diagnoses will be more consistent and precise. The editorial also recommended second opinions in ambiguous cases.


A second opinion usually does not require another biopsy; it means asking one or more additional pathologists to look at the microscope slides made from the first biopsy. Dr. Elmore said doctors could help patients find a pathologist for a second opinion.


A surgeon not involved with the study, Dr. Elisa Port, a co-director of the Dubin Breast Center and the chief of breast surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, said the research underlined how important it is that biopsies be interpreted by highly experienced pathologists who specialize in breast disease.


“As a surgeon, I only know what to do based on the guidance of my pathologist,” Dr. Port said. “Those people behind the scenes are actually the ones who dictate care.”


In Dr. Elmore’s study, the panel of three expert pathologists examined biopsy slides from 240 women, one slide per case, and came to a consensus about the diagnosis.


“These were very, very experienced breast pathologists who have written textbooks in the field,” Dr. Elmore said.

APPLE EXTRACT KILLS COLON CANCER CELLS BETTER THAN CHEMO DRUGS IN LATEST STUDY

(Natural News, March 2013)

 

According to an article by Ethan Evers, oligosaccharides from apples killed up to 46 percent of human colon cancer cells in vitro, and outperformed the most commonly used chemo drug by a wide margin at every dose level tested.

 

Unlike toxic chemo drugs, oligosaccharides are natural, health-promoting compounds widely present in fruits and vegetables.


Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related death for women worldwide, the 3rd for men. Commonly used chemo drugs for colon cancer not only have limited success, they produce serious side effects, such as coronary spasm, neurotoxicity, anemia and immunosuppression.


Apples are the most widely consumed fruit in many countries, and have already demonstrated activity against breast, ovarian, lung, liver and colon cancer. The oligosaccharides used in the study can be cheaply produced from apple pomace – a widely available waste product left over from the apple juice processing industry.


Oligosaccharides occur naturally in many fruits, vegetables and algae as well as in honey and milk. They have been shown to promote healthy intestinal flora, control blood sugar and modulate the immune system. Commercially produced apple juice contains virtually no oligosaccharides and provides only about 10% of any health giving substances compared to raw apples.


Apples and their potent anti-cancer effects, even at low concentrations, offer promise for a low cost natural medicine in the future.


About the author: Ethan Evers is the author of the award winning medical thriller "The Eden Prescription" – where researchers perfect an all natural cancer treatment only to be hunted down by the pharmaceutical interests who will stop at nothing to protect their $80 Billion cancer drug cash machine.

 

SHOCK STUDY: Chemotherapy can backfire, make cancer worse by triggering tumor growth.

Daily News, August 2012

 

Long considered the most effective cancer-fighting treatment, chemotherapy may actually make cancer worse, according to a new study.


The extremely aggressive therapy, which kills both cancerous and healthy cells indiscriminately, can cause healthy cells to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to further treatment.


Researchers in the USA made the 'completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resistant inside the human body when they are so easy to kill in the lab.
They tested the effects of a type of chemotherapy on tissue collected from men with prostate cancer and found evidence of DNA damage in healthy cells after treatment, the scientist wrote in Natural Medicine. Chemotherapy works by inhibiting reproduction of fast-dividing cells such as those found in tumors.


The scientist found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein called WNT16B which boosts cancer cell survival. "The increase is WNT16B was completely unexpected," study co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle told AFP.


The protein was taken up by tumor cells neighboring the damaged cells.


"WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumor cells and cause them to grow, invade and most importantly, resist subsequent therapy," said Nelson.


In cancer treatment, tumors often respond well initially, followed by re-growth and then resistance to further chemotherapy.

Do Biopsies Spread Cancer?

 

Cancer is almost always diagnosed by biopsy, a surgical procedure that removes tissue samples from tumors.

 

The samples are viewed under a microscope by a pathologist to determine the presence and type of cancer. According to TMD Limited, a medical tourism company, it is the fear of biopsies spreading cancer that drives over half a million US citizens out of the country for medical treatment each year.

 

Doctors routinely recommend biopsies to diagnose cancer. PET and CT scans usually follow. All of these tests can harm the patient.

 

All cells are surrounded by interstitial fluid. This fluid drains into the lymph system through lymph channels, to the upper left chest, where the major lymphatic channel drains directly into a blood vessel. When a scalpel or needle invades tissue with cancer cells, there will be some bleeding, spilling cancer cells into the blood vessels or the lymph system via the interstitial fluid. Once a few of the billions of cancer cells break away and enter the bloodstream, they travel to distant organs and start to grow. This process is called 'seeding'. The dangerously high amount of radiation in PET and CT scans damages normal cells, which produce abnormal cells when they divide, and those abnormal cells can become malignant.

GMOs are Hitting the Big Screen!

THE GMO FILM PROJECT tells the story of a father's discovery of GMOs through the symbolic act of poor Haitian farmers burning seeds in defiance of Monsanto's gift of 475 tons of hybrid corn and vegetable seeds to Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake of January 2010.

 

After a journey to Haiti to learn why hungry farmers would burn seeds, the real awakening of what has happened to our food in the US, what we are feeding our families, and what is at stake for the global food supply unfolds in a trip across the United States and other countries in search of answers. Are we at a tipping point? Is it time to take back our food? The encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, seed take over, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing resistance of organic farmers, concerned citizens, and a burgeoning movement to take back what we have lost.

Today in the United States, by the simple act of feeding ourselves, we unwittingly participate in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Massive agro-chemical companies like Monsanto (Agent Orange) and Dow (Napalm) are feeding us genetically-modified food, GMOs, that have never been fully tested and aren't labeled. This small handful of corporations is tightening their grip on the world's food supply—buying, modifying, and patenting seeds to ensure total control over everything we eat. We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now!

 

High Fructose Corn Syrup - How Sweet It Is....NOT

Our Guest Doctor Michael P. Heim is a nationally known Bariactric Medicine (weight loss) Specialist. His clinic, The Center for Health and Age Management, is located in Tampa, Florida, where he practices anti-aging medicine, medical weight loss and primary care medicine.

 

in-defense-of-food-pollan-198x300I’ve just finished Michael Pollard’s Book, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifestowhich I mentioned in my blog last week. Many thoughts went through my head while reading this book but the one that stands out the most was that it reminded me of why I majored in nutrition in college.

 

Simply put, I believe in the power of food and always have. The natural next step as a physician has been to believe in the power of food and healthy living to fuel our health and well being. The author does a masterful job of explaining how the food supply in our country has become so unhealthy.  It also makes me question everything I put in my mouth and, as a parent, what my children put in theirs’.

 

To reiterate some of the points of last week’s blog, we as a country have been duped by the food industry with cooperation from our government. The food lobby is well funded and with that funding comes the power to obtain the right (by our government) to make, quite frankly, asinine health claims about the so-called food they are selling us. Are we really to believe that Lucky Charms is now somehow good for us because a small amount of “whole grains,” have been added?

 

The same machine has produced the commercials mentioned last week about the merits of high fructose corn syrup, in moderation of course.  Does anyone else want to ask, “are you #@@?% kidding me?”

Raise Your Glass To Resveratrol

Anti-Aging Supplement Can Turn Back The Clock

 

Article by Dr. Michael Heim, Tampa Health Center

 

In my last blog on caloric restriction and longevity, I mentioned a supplement that produces similar effects in the body without the pain of following a low-calorie diet. That supplement is Resveratrol. As I covered in last month's blog, research has shown that caloric restriction or intermittent fasting can have an enormous impact on your health and has been shown to increase life span by up to 60% in animal studies. It is believed this result is due to a survival mode which the body reverts to when it goes through periods of time without a readily available fuel source. This survival mode leads to improved fuel efficiency, improved immunity and disease fighting ability.

 

Resveratrol is a compound found in many common foods including red wine, grapes, berries, and peanuts. Before you get too excited about the Resveratrol content in wine however, know that you will have to consume a liter of wine to get about 5 mg of this nutrient and that the recommended dosage is 250-300 mg daily. Luckily, Resveratrol is also available as a nutritional supplement. It is believed that Resveratrol simulates caloric restriction and the resulting health and longevity benefits it provides.

 

Animal studies have shown a longevity benefit from Resveratrol, even in subjects that were given a high caloric diet, but there is an even greater, synergistic effect when the two are combined (Resveratrol supplement with some sort of caloric restriction protocol as discussed in my blog last month).

Study: Radiation Therapy Can Make Cancers 30x More Malignant

June 26th 2012 at 10:00 am by Sayer Ji.

 

Following on the heels of recent revelations that x-ray mammography may be contributing to an epidemic of future radiation-induced breast cancers, in a new article titled, "Radiation Treatment Generates Therapy Resistant Cancer Stem Cells From Aggressive Breast Cancer Cells," published in the journal Cancer July 1st, 2012, researchers from the Department of Radiation Oncology at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center report that radiation treatment actually drives breast cancer cells into greater malignancy.

 

The researchers found that even when radiation kills half of the tumor cells treated, the surviving cells which are resistant to treatment, known as induced breast cancer stem cells (iBCSCs), were up to 30 times more likely to form tumors than the nonirradiated breast cancer cells. In other words, the radiation treatment regresses the total population of cancer cells, generating the false appearance that the treatment is working, but actually increases the ratio of highly malignant to benign cells within that tumor, eventually leading to the iatrogenic (treatment-induced) death of the patient.

 

Last month, a related study published in the journal Stem Cells titled, "Radiation-induced reprogramming of breast cells," found that ionizing radiation reprogrammed less malignant (more differentiated) breast cancer cells into iBCSCs, helping to explain why conventional treatment actually enriches the tumor population with higher levels of treatment-resistant cells.

This May Surprise You:

The World Health Organization (WHO), produced a study ranking  health care  by country.  Can you guess where the US ranks?

 

In overall medical care, the US ranks # 37, just under Costa Rica and just above Slovenia.  (France is number one)

They also ranked the total health expenditure as a per centage of each country’s  GDP.  The USA ranks 2nd.  Only the Marshall Islands spends more on health care than Americans.

And when it comes to how many years of a person’s life expectancy will be healthy ones, the USA is 24th.

Conclusion – While we spend more on health care than almost every other country in the world, we are not receiving the kind of care that they get in the 36 countries that rank ahead of us.

And in 25 other countries, people live healthier lives.

 

Is it any wonder that over half a million people leave the US each year to seek medical treatment outside the country?

Top 12 Cancer Causing Products in the Average Home

Among many other cancer causing products commonly found in the home, this dirty dozen list has made it to the Hall of Shame. The Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC) and Ralph Nader have released a "Dirty Dozen" list of consumer products used in most American homes, and manufactured by giant U.S. corporations.

 

The "Dirty Dozen" products contain a wide-range of carcinogenic and other toxic ingredients and contaminants to which most of us are exposed daily.

Most Brand-Name Laundry Detergents


Loaded with extremely toxic chemicals that could harm you, your family and the environment. Residues of these chemicals are left on your clothes and are absorbed by your skin and evaporated into the air where they could be breathed in. Most would be surprised to find that even ‘Green’ labeled detergents contain toxic ingredients.

Know the truth about Detergent

 

Unlabeled Toxic Ingredients Linear alkyl sodium sulfonates (LAS) or ‘anionic surfactants’, carcinogenic, reproductive toxins
Petroleum Distillates, carcinogenic, cause lung damage, lung inflammation and damage to mucous membranes.Phenols, toxic to central nervous system, heart, blood vessels, lungs and kidneys.Sodium hypochlorite (household bleach): When it reacts with organic materials in the environment, carcinogenic and toxic compounds are created than can cause reproductive, endocrine and immune system disorders.
 

“What is particularly galling about the “Dirty Dozen”, emphasized Ralph Nader, “is that these toxic chemicals don’t have to be there. Yet these corporations continue to expose people to health hazards unnecessarily”.

 

Current product labeling provides no warning for cancer and other chronic health risks. Food is labeled for cholesterol, but not for carcinogens. Cosmetics are labeled for major ingredients, but not for those that form carcinogens or contain carcinogenic contaminants. Except for pesticides, household products contain no information on their ingredients.

Cancer rates are skyrocketing. Currently, more than one-third of all of us will develop cancer in our lifetime, and one-fourth will die from the disease. Many cancers are due to avoidable exposures to industrial carcinogens in the food we eat, and the cosmetics and household products we use.

Hopefully this has gotten the message across that just because these products sit on store shelves, do not guarantee it’s safe to use. These are 12 of the thousands of products that have not been tested alone or in conjunction. We’d like to add one more to this product hall-of-shame.

What Can I Do Right Now To Stop The Cancer Growth And Improve My Health?

One of the most frequently asked questions from cancer patients is: “What can I do right now to stop the cancer growth and improve my health?”  And the answer is:  change your diet!

 

When you have a scan with contrast dye, the carrying agent for the dye is glucose, or sugar water.  Glucose is used because cancer cells suck up the sugar so quickly and completely, it lights up the films and shows the doctors where the cancer is located. 

 

Sugar feeds cancer and helps it grow.  If you eliminate sugar from your diet, you will quit providing fuel for the cancer growth.

Sugar is hidden in many foods.  Sometimes we think we are eating healthy, but we are consuming large amounts of sugar. 

 

It doesn’t matter if the sugar is natural or refined – it’s still sugar.  While fruits are part of a healthy diet, we recommend eating only ‘northern’ fruits.  Fruits that grow where there is a winter season are best because the dormant season takes much of the sugar out of the fruit.  The best fruits are apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots and berries of all kinds (go easy on strawberries).  Fruits with the most sugar are southern or tropical fruits. The fruits with the most sugar are green grapes, melons, pineapples, mangos, papayas and bananas and citrus (lemons and grapefruit are permitted).
