The Importance of Plant Foods

A compound called D-glucarate is found in grapefruit, apples, oranges, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.D-glucarate has been shown to protect against cancer-causing agents by supporting detoxification and removal of dangerous chemicals, and also by protecting against the mutating effects that these carcinogens induce on cellular DNA.

This is important because the body is bombarded with carcinogens on a daily basis. These cancer-causing agents include pesticides, overcooked food, alcohol, food additives, tobacco, fungal mutagens, and industrial pollutants. And this is impossible to avoid living anywhere in the United States.

Learning about Cholophyllin

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Chlorophyllin is a semi-synthetic mixture of sodium copper salts derived from chlorophyll and is water-soluble.

Carcinogens in our food (like well-done meat) and environment can cause DNA mutations that lead to cancer and other diseases.

Protecting against DNA mutations is crucial to preventing disease and prolonging life.

Chlorophyllin demonstrates protection against numerous carcinogens.

Experimental evidence suggests that chlorophyllin may help prevent liver, breast, colon and pancreatic cancers.
