Many of you have asked about the book behind this BLOG. It can be gotten for $3.03 on Amazon.
If you haven’t read it yet, Do so now! Get the history behind epigenetics and its influence on our health. The back of the book contains hundreds of references. Do your own research.

This will be my last BLOG on here. It has been fun and educational. To all of you that told me it helped cure a decease of a loved one or yourself…thanks. There is a ton of material in this BLOG to go through and my book “Food for Thought, An Epigenetic guide to Wellness”, is available in hard cover, paperback and eBook from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The eBook is my favorite because it lets me set bookmarks and highlight information. There are over 200 references in the book. This is a great start to doing your own search on health. I have enjoyed the years of doing this BLOG and thank the thousands of readers I have. It is time to move on to other projects. I am still doing my travel in Europe BLOG for those planning a trip. Good health to all my readers. Don’t believe the TV commercials, they are designed to sell you processed foods. Get to know your local farm markets. Enjoy your food again.

Dr. Greger says that changing your diet from twice as much meat as vegetable to equal portions slows down progression of cancer. A total vegan diet eliminates the cancer. If you feel you must eat some meat, try to eat less than half the amount of vegetables you consume Animal Protein vs. Plant Protein). If you really want to wipe out cancer’s hold or future hold on your family, go VEGAN! Recently I went for an annual physical and had to fill out a new government form on diet. Asking me if I was vegetarian or vegan. That is exciting news. I don’t know if our government will do anything with this information but they are at least interested in the statistics. Test after test shows that a complete vegan diet will prevent cancer and reverse existing cancers. It also eliminates most of the top 20 killers of Americans (see my book for more information).

In this final part of the series, we ask the question, “Where is evolution taking us?” Scientists have always thought that evolution was strictly a random change to our DNA that changed us forever. Are we changing only by random changes to our DNA? I don’t think so. I believe our epigenetic program can also be changed. Our minds are changing us much faster than evolution ever did. Look at all the artificial parts we make for humans, legs, arms, hearts, etc. If our bodies became more machine, how would that change us? That is the question philosophers ask all the time. I think we are much more than the mere flesh that makes up our bodies. Epigenetics is an amazing part of us. What do we know?
We are made of a community of cells (we have more cells in our bodies than there are animals on the Earth). Each cell is a living organism that makes decisions, reproduces, eats, gets rid of waste and communicates with other cells. This community makes you unique. Where we are going is for the science fiction writers to dream up and the scientists to discover. For sure we have evolved from no cellular organisms to cells, to multicellular creatures, all the way up to humans. This is NOT the end. We are still evolving in new ways. In 1,000 years we won’t recognise ourselves at that time. Evolution is not over, we are not the end product of evolution. We are just a step to the future of mankind. After all Early man could not have imagined modern man.
Enjoy your health and your life!

One in every eight woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer. That is sad but the really sad thing is it can be prevented with a dietary change. Dr Greger says that broccoli, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and other plant-based foods can reduce the risk. He says new studies show a link between cholesterol and breast cancer. The cholesterol fat feeds the cancer and allows it to grow. the study shows a 17% increase in cancer risk for women with cholesterol over 240 as opposed to those under 160. This may be why cholesterol drops in cancer patients. The cancer is eating it up.
Eggs are a major source of cholesterol and fat. All animal protein foods contain this as well (cheese, milk, meat and butter). We have reported on studies that show meat can turn ON/OFF cancer (The China Study and others see my book). Once cancer is turned ON, cholesterol and fat feed it. This allows it to grow rapidly out of control. Feed your body correctly and you will enjoy good health!
