“14 ways to reduce breast cancer risk” Complementary Medicine Assoc.

  1. Radically reduce your intake of sugar/fructose and processed foods.
  2. Optimize your vitamin D3 level.
  3. Make intermittent fasting part of your lifestyle.
  4. Maintain a healthy body weight.
  5. Exercise at least 3 times per week.
  6. Get plenty of high-quality animal-based omega-3 fats, such as those from krill oil. Omega-3 deficiency is a common underlying factor for cancer.
  7. Drink a pint to a quart of organic green vegetable juice daily. Avoid drinking alcohol, or limit your drinks to one a day for women.
  8. Get proper sleep.
  9. Eat organic when possible, Follow a Mediterranean diet
  10. If you have children breastfeed exclusively for up to six months. Research shows this will reduce your breast cancer risk.
  11. Avoid excessive iron levels.
  12. Eat flax seeds. The phyto-estrogens protects against breast cancer more effectively than any other food we know of, but may also shrink breast tumors. Lilian Thompson’s research at the University of Toronto shows that flax seeds and estrogen-positive tumors shrank in every woman given flax seeds for three weeks.
  13. Reduce your physical and emotion stress. How stressed are you? -take the free quiz.
  14. Stay well hydrated.

Mediterranean diet  is  “abundant in plant foods, fresh fruit as the typical daily dessert, olive oil as the principal source of fat, dairy products (principally cheese and yogurt), and fish and poultry consumed in low to moderate amounts, zero to four eggs consumed weekly, red meat consumed in low amounts, and wine consumed in low to moderate amounts”. Total fat in this diet is 25% to 35% of calories, with saturated fat at 8% or less of calories.

“What creates the jolt in energy drinks?”

Energy drinks boost energy by using caffeine, taurine, vitamins, herbal supplements, sugar and sweeteners . Other lessen known ingredients in these drinks include gum arabic, pyridoxine hydrochloride, Inositol and Cyanocobalamin and about 16 other chemicals.
Only 80 mg to 215 mg per can  are Caffeine in comparison to a 12-ounce Pike Place Roast Starbucks Coffee weighing in with 260 mg.

One study found that 30-50 percent of adolescents and young adults regularly drink energy drinks.  Are these drinks encouraging are young people to become addicted to the “jolt” rather than building quality adrenal energy?

Bye Bye grey hair

Getting rid of that gray hair without toxic dyes…Researchers in the the FASEB Journal have found that hair grays because of oxidative stressdue to the huge accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicles. This causes bleaching from the inside out. So a new treatment using topical UVB-activated compound called PC-KUS (a modified pseudocatalase). For more information: 
In the future, sudden loss of the inherited skin and localized hair color won’t have the same devastating affects on the health of so many.

“Master gene for heart, blood n skeletal muscle”

New research out of the Lillehei Heart Institute at the University of Minnesota shows that by turning on just a single gene, Mesp1, different cell types including the heart, blood and muscle can be created from stem cells. The study was published today in the journal Cell Stem Cell. “Previous research indicated that this gene was the “master regulator” for development of the heart, and that its activity prevented the differentiation of other cell types,” said Michael Kyba, Ph.D., associate professor in the University of Minnesota Medical School Department of Pediatrics and a Lillehei endowed scholar. “Our work reveals that this gene acts differently, and that it plays a role in the development of blood and skeletal muscle as well. The outcome depends on the chemical signals that cells expressing this factor sense in their environment.” more info

It seems to kill the bacteria through simple surface contact.

Scientists in Biophysical Journal explained howthe Clanger cicadas have nanoscale sized pillars on their wings that trap and slowly kill bacteria by pulling their cells apart.  Sounds like the basis for the next Sci-Fi movie blockbuster.

“Healthy company = less stressed out workers = more $$”- Comp Med Assoc.

Stress has been called the “health epidemic of the 21st century” by the World Health Organization and is estimated to cost American businesses up to $300 billion a year.”

The rosary – yoga what’s the link?

Rhythmic prayer, such as saying the rosary, seems to affect the heart rate
in the same way as doing yoga.
Research on the health benefits of prayer has shown decidedly mixed
results. When individuals pray in a ritualistic or rhythmic way, such as
saying the rosary or repeating a mantra, they can lower their heart rate.
In fact, one study showed that the cardiovascular effects of rhythmic
prayer are similar to that of doing yoga. Studies on the effects of
intercessory prayer — that is, prayer for other people — show less
optimistic results. One study even showed that people who received
intercessory prayer from other people were more likely to suffer
post-surgery complications.

HPV vaccine not so popular yeah!

Vaccination rates among adolescent girls for the cancer-causing human papillomavirus (HPV) is low, so Merck and the CDC is putting pressure education on physicians and increased advertizing so more parental education.  They are encouraging physicians to push the vaccinations on every visit. medscape.com

So is it possible that people are becoming more educated on healthier ways to improve their health? This decrease is the best news to date. Seems people are not buying the fear tactics that this vaccine is necessary for young girls and boys.

Gardasil is the commercial HPV vaccine; licensed for use in June 2006, by the FDA to Merck and Company. The vaccine “targets four strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) — HPV-6, 11, 16, and 18. HPV-16 and HPV-18 account for about 70% of all cervical cancers. HPV-6 and -11 cause about 90% of genital warts. HPV is also linked to anal cancer.”

Who can get HPV infections?

It is possible for males to get HPV infections and can pass the virus to their sex partners. HPV causes genital warts and is associated with rare cases of cancer of the penis. Particularly in gay men, HPV is linked to anal cancers. Merck is currently testing Gardasil in men, including gay men. webmd.com

The HPV vaccine contains:

  • proteins of HPV Types 6, 11, 16, and 18
  • amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (adjuvant)  it causes neuron death in mice  healthsentinel.com
  • yeast protein -possible allergen for those who have yeast sensitivities or those who have an overgrowth of yeast in their body
  • sodium chloride salt
  • L-histidine – Most lists of amino acids classify Lhistidine as an essential amino acid; however, it has never been clear if Lhistidine is an essential amino acid for adults.
  • polysorbate 80  solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions”  ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
  • sodium borate – ” sodium borate, and sodium perborate are estimated to have a fatal dose from 0.1 to 0.5g/kg. These substances are toxic to all cells, and have a slow excretion rate through the kidneys. Kidney toxicity is the greatest, with liver fatty degeneration, cerebral edema, and gastroenteritis.”  cqconcepts.com

Merck does not list all ingredients in this toxic cocktail.  There is no guarantee that this vaccine is even needed. Vaccines add toxic chemicals to the body that is the reason the body launches the immune response. It is trying to get rid of these foreign substances.
