A High-Fat Diet may increase Risk of Breast Cancer

Leave a comment


The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) says that a diet high in fat can increase risk of Breast Cancer. Women concerned about breast cancer need to look at this article. Reduce your fat to good fats and stop intake of all saturated fats. This was study of 337,327 women by the National Cancer Institute.  Cancer is a concern among all of us. Women in particular are concerned about breast cancer. The more we research cancers of all types, we see that they are highly related to our diet. Americans have the worst diet in the world and we have some of the highest cancer rates as well. You can change your diet to a healthier one. Once you do, you will find you enjoy healthier foods more than you ever thought. We have only one body, take care of it and fuel it correctly!

 

Why do we have Junk Food?

3 Comments


Junk food is one of the most profitable businesses around! Dr Greger, in his video below, says Coca Cola is as profitable as tobacco. Unhealthy food is profitable. First you pay when you buy this food so a company can turn over insane profit margins and then you pay again as you get sick for your health care. We are all paying too much for healthy care because many of our Americans are eating way too much junk food. These companies know how to use sugar and other chemicals to addict you to their products. I believe in the American system of making money but when companies make excessive profits at the cost of American health, it is not OK! Our government looks the other way because of lobbies. Only you can change this situation. Just stop buying unhealthy foods! Watch your family get healthier and watch your savings go up.

As if this is not enough, we are subsidizing these industries with our tax dollars. Our government subsidizes companies in the production of animal products and sugar production. Both of these have changed our diets since World War II. Both sugar and animal protein are linked to many diseases including cancer and heart disease. Why do we do it? Getting sick fuels the other hugh money making industry, the drug industry.

 

How to get Lowest Risk of Heart Disease

Leave a comment


The PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) quoted a study published in “Public Health Nutrition” that says Vegetarian and Vegan eaters have the lowest risk of heart disease! The study stated:

Those who consumed a vegetarian/vegan diet had fewer heart disease risk factors including lower blood pressure, half the risk of diabetes, and a 44 percent reduced risk for hypertension, compared with those who consumed pesco-vegetarian and non-vegetarian diets. Additionally, vegetarians and vegans were 43 percent less likely to be obese, compared with non-vegetarians.

If you are on the border about meat and animal protein (eggs, milk, meat and cheese), seriously limit it’s intake or stop all together. If you can’t stop eating meat at least limit the portions to a small piece once or twice a week and increase your vegetable intake drastically. A good indicator of how much animal protein is safe is 10% of all your food intake (from “The China Study”). Count all the calories you consume in a day. Then count the calories from meat, eggs, milk, cheese and yogurt. Divide the animal protein calories by the total calories. If your number is higher than 10%, you may be at risk of diseases including heart disease and cancer.

Unfortunately the Standard American Diet (SAD) is very sad. Americans that eat eggs, bacon butter and milk for breakfast; meat and cheese for lunch and meat and potatoes for dinner have an animal protein percentage over 60% (some in the 90′s). Our bodies were not built for this type of consumption. The proof is all around you, JUST LOOK! WE have many more hospitals, medical centers and chronic illnesses are way up. It’s not just old people but our children are falling victims to these diseases at am alarming rate.

 

Weeding Out the Gene Pool!

Leave a comment


Grace Ault, PhD [about epigenetics' role beyond treatment] – Since methylation running amok can be reversed; epigenetics might allow doctors to deactivate the seeds of cancer before actual growth. “One thing that’s known is that diet, exposure to pollutants, or drugs—those things can actually change the methylation patterns of DNA,” says Ault. Even the amount of exercise a person gets can change a cell’s epigenetics. Everything we do or don’t do programs who and what we are. Our bodies through epigenetics try to react to diet, environment and our frame of mind. These reactions were intended to evolve us into better creatures able to adapt to whatever world we found ourselves in. Our modern world is changing everything way too fast. This causes epigenetics to sometimes react in ways that are not beneficial to us. Does this programming realize that we are headed down a slippery slope? Does it realize we are doomed so it weeds us out of the “bad” gene pool? Maybe disease is nature’s way of keeping the flower bed free of weeds!

Obesity among Children Increases!

Leave a comment


The PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) says obesity among our children is on the rise. A study by National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) indicates that obesity for children ages 2 to 19 is increasing. What are we doing to our children? It is one thing for an adult to live a style that leads to obesity but to do this to our children is wrong! We know that sweets, sugar, salts, fried foods and processed foods (most of what Americans eat) is the cause. Take control back of your shopping and kitchens! Buy more fruits and vegetables, buy organics, Don’t buy processed (frozen, canned or boxed) and stop frying foods. Reduce drastically the amount of fast foods in your children’s diets. If you don’t, they will be burdened with weight problems their entire lives.

Obesity leads to many diseases like High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol issues, Heart disease, cancer and Diabetes. These are the top killers of Americans. Who will protect your children from these killers if you don’t? Having these conditions requires medication which leads to many other side effects.

 

Secret Chemicals in Your Food?

1 Comment


The Washington Post ran an article today on “Are secret, dangerous ingredients in your food? Please read the article at this link! It seems they cab do their own tests, draw their own conclusions and then decide to add these chemicals to our foods without notifying the FDA. Do you trust your lives and the lives of your families with the big food companies? I don’t! We have enough disease (heart, cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, etc) in this country! These additives are deemed safe by the food companies and not included on the labels. If we don’t know they are there, how can we determine if they are really safe.

The only true answer is to return to natural living. DO NOT buy processed foods. If it comes in a can, box, frozen package it is processed. Some natural appearing things like baby carrots are also processed pieces of scrap and not healthy! Buy and cook what grows! Buy from an organic farmer. Processed foods do not save time or money. All they do is make you ill.

We have GMO wheat that studies show increase weight issues of Americans. Where will this stop? You can take control of your livers, your food and your health. Do it before its to late for your family!

 

Why do we Age?

Leave a comment


Dr. Greger has an excellent video on why we age!  A weird bacteria was found on Easter Island that actually can slow down the process of aging.  This is not science fiction but science fact. How does this work? The enzyme iN this bacteria is called TOR. Dr Greger defines the aging process similar to a speeding car. As we enter mature adulthood our cells are still going at top speed. They should be slowing down since we are aging. Why do they still speed along? Because they never needed to slow down! We never lived long enough in the wild for it to matter.

Modern medicine has increased age slightly but at the expense of illness and disease. In my opinion it is not the age we can obtain that is really important but the quality of life during the last 15-20 years of our life. We should age comfortably and happily not worrying about disease and illness. What do you think?
