MOST HEALTHY PREVENT CANCER FOODS


MOST HEALTHY PREVENT CANCER FOODS.

 

Avocados are rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that attacks free radicals in the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats. They also supply even more potassium than bananas and are a strong source of beta-carotene. Scientists also believe that avocados may also be useful in treating viral hepatitis (a cause of liver cancer), as well as other sources of liver damage.

Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower have a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol that can combat breast cancer by converting a cancer-promoting estrogen into a more protective variety. Broccoli, especially sprouts, also have the phytochemical sulforaphane, a product of glucoraphanin – believed to aid in preventing some types of cancer, like colon and rectal cancer. Sulforaphane induces the production of certain enzymes that can deactivate free radicals and carcinogens. The enzymes have been shown to inhibit the growth of tumors in laboratory animals.  However, be aware that the Agriculture Department studied 71 types of broccoli plants and found a 30-fold difference in the amounts of glucoraphanin. It appears that the more bitter the broccoli is, the more glucoraphanin it has. Broccoli sprouts have been developed under the trade name BroccoSprouts that have a consistent level of sulforaphane – as much as 20 times higher than the levels found in mature heads of broccoli. 

Carrots contain a lot of beta carotene, which may help reduce a wide range of cancers including lung, mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, bladder, prostate and breast. Some research indicated beta carotene may actually cause cancer, but this has not proven that eating carrots, unless in very large quantities – 2 to 3 kilos a day, can cause cancer.  In fact, a substance called falcarinol that is found in carrots has been found to reduce the risk of cancer, according to researchers at Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences (DIAS). Kirsten Brandt, head of the research department, explained that isolated cancer cells grow more slowly when exposed to falcarinol. This substance is a polyacethylen, however, so it is important not to cook the carrots.

Chili peppers and jalapenos contain a chemical, capsaicin, which may neutralize certain cancer-causing substances (nitrosamines) and may help prevent cancers such as stomach cancer. 

Cruciferous vegetables – broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage contain two antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin that may help decrease prostate and other cancers. 

Figs apparently have a derivative of benzaldehyde. It has been reported that investigators at the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research in Tokyo say benzaldehyde is highly effective at shrinking tumors, though I haven’t seen this report. In addition, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says figs, which contain vitamins A and C, and calcium, magnesium and potassium, may curtail appetite and improve weight-loss efforts. Fig juice is also a potent bacteria killer in test-tube studies.

Flax contains lignans, which may have an antioxidant effect and block or suppress cancerous changes. Flax is also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are thought to protect against colon cancer and heart disease.

TOP CANCER PREVENT FOODS


It is true your disease is what you ATE!  Working with hundreds of people over the years.  The minute they tell me what they ate for breakfast, I can tell what kind of fitness level they have and it is a blue-print for their future health. In the years to come the build up of consumption of soft drinks, sticky buns, and cream cheese bagels and coffee, all add up to a probable horrible disease.

Today, I want to contribute some of the research on foods that are preventative and often corrective for a lot of probably BIG medical problems.  Now, the big test is…how many are you eating?

LIPSTICK TO DIE FOR


Something to consider
Next time you go shopping for
Lipstick……

This comes from someone
Who works in the breast cancer unit at

Mt. Sinai Hospital , in Toronto ..

From: Dr. Nahid Neman

If there is a female you care anything about,

Share this with her. I did!!!!!

I am also sharing this with the males on my e-mail list,
Because they need to tell the females

THEY care about as well!

Recently a lipstick brand called ‘Red Earth’

Decreased their prices from
$67 to $9.90.

It contained lead.

Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.

The lipstick brands that contain lead are:

CHRISTIAN DIOR

LANCÔME

CLINIQUE

Y.S.L

ESTEE LAUDER

SHISEIDO

RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)

CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)

MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.

The higher the lead content,

The greater the chance of causing cancer.

After doing a test on lipsticks,

It was found that the Y.S.L. Lipstick
Contained the most amount of lead.

Watch out for those lipsticks
Which are supposed to stay longer.

If your lipstick stays longer, it is
Because of the higher content of lead.

Here is the test you can do yourself:

1. Put some lipstick on your hand.

2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.

3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,

Then you know the lipstick contains lead.

Please send this information to all your girlfriends, Wives and female family members.

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre

Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer,

Especially breast cancer

VITAMIN S


Follow the sun, we really need it.  It is a medical fact that sunlight, what I call vitamin S (the sun)  enables your body to produce vitamin D.  Just recently vast amounts of evidence and research has proves we are suffering from the lack of natures precious most precious gift the sun.
Researchers at St. George’s Hospital in London have found that breast tissues produce their own cancer-fighting compound (calcitriol) that destroys breast cancer tumors. In order to make calcitriol, however, tissues in the breast need Vitamin D, and the best way to get Vitamin D is to expose your skin to natural sunlight. In other words, the research is finding that the human body can cure cancer all by itself, but only if it has the raw materials available.
People have been brainwashed into thinking the sun is evil. They’ve been told to cover up their skin and to avoid being exposed to natural sunlight. They’ve coated themselves with sunscreens (which contain massive amounts of toxic chemicals), and taken extreme measures to avoid sunlight. This advice, however, has turned out to be completely wrong. Natural sunlight is absolutely essential for good health, and without it, you are far more susceptible to cancer, depression, obesity, osteoporosis and many other diseases. Sunlight is a natural cure that helps the body maintain a high state of health.
But what about sunburns, you ask? I speak from experience on this issue: people are only susceptible to sunburns when they have nutritional deficiencies caused by consuming soft drinks, processed foods, white flour, refined sugars, and other similar substances. A person on the standard American diet receives a sunburn very easily. But if that same person follows a sound diet for several months, avoids all processed foods and supplements their diet with nutritional supplements and superfoods, they will not burn their skin in the sunlight.
On the Vitamin D issue, deficiencies in this vitamin are widespread. As a result, perhaps tens of millions of men die by a completely avoidable disease: prostate cancer.  Those who take Vitamin D from cod liver oil or natural sunlight will have a much lesser chance of  experiencing prostate cancer.  In Breast cancer and osteoporosis: both diseases are entirely preventable, and sunlight is one of the keys to prevent these diseases.

Many doctors are still telling their patients to stay out of the sun. and the truth is that the sun that holds the cure to many diseases now considered epidemic in the Western world. We need more sunshine, not less, and while there is certainly such a thing as too much sunshine in one setting, the fact is that almost nobody living in modern cities gets even the minimum daily requirement of sunshine.
By the way, this is even more true for people who have darker skin. Those of African descent are especially prone to Vitamin D deficiencies since their skin naturally blocks a significant portion of sunlight radiation. That’s why black men have a much higher rate of prostate cancer than white men. Furthermore, black men who live in Northern climates (like London or Canada, for example) have it even worse: it’s virtually impossible for them to get enough Vitamin D since there’s not much sun to be found where they live. (Keep in mind: dark skin was an adaptation for people living near the equator, where sunshine is far more powerful.)
Back to the research.  Modern medicine is now finding that the body cures its own cancer if given the raw ingredients it needs. Breast tissues have their own miniature chemotherapy factories,  and if a tumor appears, they fight it off before it can ever be diagnosed by a mammogram. Truly, the human body is a miracle of nature, and your body knows how to cure cancer on its own. If you want to be free of breast cancer, simply feed your body the nutrition it needs to invoke its own innate healing abilities.
