The Importance of Plant Foods

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

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.

Meat Increases Breast Cancer Risk

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

Studies have consistently shown that what we eat affects our cancer risk. And women who eat more red meat suffer higher breast cancer rates. In a study of postmenopausal Chinese women who ate a Western-style diet (which included beef, pork, and desserts) found they were 30% more likely to develop breast cancer than those eating a diet of vegetables and soy.

What isn’t known from this study is whether meat from “free range” animals also increases breast cancer.

Sugar Linked to Dementia

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

According to German author and neurologist Dr. Agnes Floel, elevated blood sugar levels (from regularly eating high-carb, high-sugar foods) are fast becoming significant markers for cognitive decline and dementia.

In a recent study of 141 participants performed at Charite University Medicine in Berlin, researchers measured and compared sugar levels in 2 test groups—one had normal sugar levels and the others’ were elevated.

After testing which included an MRI scan and a word test, the researchers noted that the higher blood sugar participants consistently did worseduring the memory assessments than the normal blood sugar group!

The reason why this happens is because sugar clogs the nutrient channels in all of your cells.  Not only can this weaken your bones and muscles, but it can slow down communication between your nerve cells–which can lead to mood swings, memory problems and eventually dementia.

Have You Read The Label?

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

The food companies are beginning to realize that some people read the label to see which “poison” is in the package. The big food conglomerates are more interested in making a buck than to see that the buyer has good food.

All the antibiotics that are given to the animals are passed on to humans. The GMO are creating all kinds of health problems in people today. The quick test they were given didn’t have enough time to get into the system before they started destroying the body.
