The Window of Heaven / Powerful Anti-Cancer Properties of Herbs / Friday: F.W. Show of Antiques and Art

“What is to be lived for
is not the illusion
of Life,
but the Reality
of Love.
– Wm. C. Anderson

A Love
that never dies,
Truth
that never lies,
may be found
in the Secret Garden
of our Heart,
revealed
by its sound,

beating in Time
with the sweet melodious Songs
of our beautiful, little feathered
friends.

And as they sing to us
all day long,
these tiny Angels
blend their color and hue
with the fragrance of the Flowers,
and with me
and with you.

                  Truth that never lies.

The precious birds of the air
teach us

so very much about
Life,
and Living
and joyful giving.

“Who teaches us more
than the beasts of the earth,
and makes us wiser
than the Birds of the Heavens?
Job 35:11

To feel good again,
to feel peaceful in troubled times,
just listen
to all the joy
of their tiny
Hearts.

My Dear Friends,
in the clear light of early Morn,

when my exhaustion
has finally gone to bed,

through an open window
I clearly hear
birds softly singing
their beautiful lullabies.

     The greatest Gifts.

And as this Window of Heaven
is opened
by the birdlings gentle tunes,

I come to realize
we are so privileged
to listen to Music
that takes us
somewhere else,
and changes our Lives.

The greatest Gifts
are often
never noticed,
never felt,
never heard.

But
when they are,
Life
regains its meaning.
We are then made truly
grateful
for the Gift of Music
these talented friends,
so very small
and precious,
are so willing share.

             A Gift from God.

Such moments
capture the Wonder
of the Glorious Life
WE
can share.

These gifted Musicians
offer a unique
repertoire of Spiritual Insight.
They nourish and feed
the Soul.
They are among the many, many
Blessings
provided for us all.

They are
truly a Treasure
and a
Gift from God.

Among the many
exquisite things
Mankind accomplishes,
in the brevity of our Being,
is to simply
listen.

This music
is so peaceful,
and so powerful,
that it connects our thoughts
to a Divine awareness.

Past our distracting
and slumberous musings,

they will be
singing,
if,
even by pretense of our Being,

we will be
but listening.

ALL
of Nature
has no stronger desire,
no greater mission in this Life,
than to be
with you,
to commune with
you,
and to have you
returned back
where you belong:
into
the Arms of Her deep
and abiding Love,
to the Petals
of Her Flowers,
to the simplicity
of Her sympathy,
and the folds
of Her
Forgiveness.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby.

Our Home
was the beauty and extravagance
of God’s Garden –
a perfection for all Mankind.
Created before sin,
it existed in a perfect state of harmony,
as Man and animal
coexisted without death
or the threat of death.

The existence
Adam and Eve knew
was one of perfection.

Let us join
in the perfection
of being kind
to every living thing.
And like the birds
of the air,
let us be rejoicing in the gift
of precious Life,
let us sing.

“For the beauty of the Earth,
for the Glory of the skies,
for the Love which from our birth,
over and around us lies.

For the wonder of each hour
of the day and of the night,
hill and vale and tree and flower,
sun and moon and stars of Light.

For the joy of Human Love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on Earth, and friends above,
for all gentle thoughts and mild.

For yourself, best gift Divine,
to the World so freely given,
agent of God’s grand design:
Peace on Earth
and Joy in Heaven.”
Folliott Sandford Pierpoint

To be so thankful
is Music
to God’s ears.

I Pray
that we
and the birds
will be singing
when God calls us
Home.

Goodnight.

“The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:5

Herbs that help fight against cancer

There can be little doubt that herbs are very potent and powerful. Although, as yet, research is limited on herbs, it is growing and many are shown to have powerful anti-cancer properties without the damaging side-effects of drugs.

Here are herbs that just might help your fight against cancer. You will be pleased to know you can still have them prescribed and made for you by experts working with CANCERactive. This article was prepared with help from two of the UK´s top herbalists, Alan Hopking and David Broom.

1 ASTRAGALUS (Huang Qi): A Chinese herb; an immune system booster, known to stimulate body´s natural production of interferon. It also helps the immune system identify rogue cells. Work with the herb in both cancer and AIDS cases has been encouraging. The MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas conducted research showing that taking Astragalus when having Radiotherapy doubled survival times.

2 BERBERIS FAMILY (e.g. Podophyllum peltanum): Slow active purgative. Research has shown these herbs to have a strong action against cancer and they have been used with many cancers, especially Ovarian cancer. In Cancer Watch March 2015, an ingredient Berberine, was shown in research to outperform brain cancer drug, Temozolomide in vitro. It was also shown to act synergistically with it and improve its efficacy.

3 BLOODROOT (Sanguinaria canadensis): Research shows consistent anti-neoplastic activity. It has been shown to be effective against cancer tumors, and can shrink them; it is one of the herbs in an anti-cancer poultice called Black Salve against breast and skin cancers; and has proven useful with sarcomas.

4 BUTCHERS BROOM (Ruscus aculeatus): The active ingredients of this herb has been found to be the ruscogenins which have tumour-shrinking and anti-oestrogenic abilities. Thus its use in the treatment of breast cancer.

5 CAT´S CLAW (Uncaria tormentosa): An adaptogen and powerful immuno-stimulant, it enhances the white cells clean up process (phagocytosis). It is an excellent companion to astragalus, curcumin and echinacea. Research indicates it can reduce tumour size, particularly with skin cancers. It also helps reduce the side-effects of chemo and radiotherapy.

6 CHAPARRAL (Larrea mexicana): Cancer Watch covered a major research study from the US which heaped praise on this herb. It appears to boost the immune system, stop metastases and reduce tumour size. Seems especially interesting with breast cancer and is another ingredient in Black Salve. It is also an anti-oxidant and anti-microbial, with low toxicity.

7 CURCUMIN (Turmeric): This spice (Curcuma longa or Turmeric root) has been shown to have significant anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory activity. That alone seems enough for certain hospitals in America to consider using it in the treatment of polyps and colon cancer. However new research shows that it can both shrink cancer tumours and inhibit blood supply growth to tumours. It is a powerful antioxidant with liver protective benefits, and outperformed several anti-inflammatory drugs without side-effects in research.

8 DANG SHEN ROOT (Codonopsis pilosula): increases both the white blood cell and red blood cell levels, so can be extremely helpful to patients having chemotherapy and radiotherapy, or to patients whose cancer diminishes levels of either.

9 ECHINACEA: Another known immune system booster, it gained a populist reputation in treating colds. There is research on its helpfulness with brain tumors apart from its abilities to increase the levels of certain immune white cells in the body.

10 FEVERFEW: This herb caused a storm when research from Rochester University in New York showed it to be more effective than the drug cytarabine in killing leukaemia cells. The US Food and Drug Agency put the active ingredient, parthenolide, on to its fast track programme. Nothing has yet been heard. But then, the FDA has never approved a herb for use as a cancer treatment.

11 GOLDENSEAL: One cause of stomach cancer can be the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. This burrows into the mucous lining of the stomach to hide from gastric acids, and then causes irritation, acid reflux, ulcers and even cancer. Goldenseal is generally anti-microbial and is used in the Caribbean and South East Asia against parasites. Goldenseal, helped by the mineral Bismuth, will kill Helicobacter pylori. Vets seem to know this, even if doctors don´t. Berberine can be found in Goldenseal.

12 MILK THISTLE: Known for years to be helpful in strengthening the liver, this herb has now been shown to be capable of protecting the liver during chemotherapy. Research in America showed that leukaemia patients who took milk thistle had reduced liver toxicity and chemo side-effects. There is a little evidence that it has its own anti-cancer activity too.

13 PAU D´ARCO: This tree bark was original thought to be a strong anti-cancer agent, but then its actions were clarified as strongly anti-bacterial, anti-yeast and anti-microbial. That alone might be enough in some cases of cancer cause. But new research on the differing ingredients has shown the quinoids possess immune strengthening abilities and seem to help in cases of blood and lymph cancers.

14 PAU D´ARCO: Research from a number of cancer centers including the Royal Marsden has shown its potential as a part of a treatment programme against oestrogen-driven cancers, from breast to prostate. One active ingredient in the so-called Herb of Hippocrates is the anti-oestrogen Genistein, which Professor Powles formerly of the Royal Marsden dubbed ´the anti-oestrogen´.

15 SHEEP´S SORRELL: Used in Essiac and other herbal remedies, it is a cleanser and aids healthy tissue regeneration. There is some suggestion from research that it helps normalise damaged cells and tissue. It is also a highly praised ´vermifuge´ – intestinal worms have little or no resistance to this herb.

16 SKULLCAP (Scutellaria barbata): Research has shown action against many cancer types, for example against cancers of the lung, stomach and intestines.

17 SUTHERLANDIA (Cancer Bush): Peer reviewed research studies indicate that this herb is anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-fungal. It boosts the immune system and inhibits Tumour Necrosis Factor, known to drive wasting in cancer patients.

18 THOROWAX, or HARES EAR (Bulpleurum scorzoneraefolium): Research has shown its ability to enhance the production of natural interferon and it seems especially useful in bone cancer.

19 WHEATGRASS: One of the top private hospitals in South East Asia extols the benefits of freshly juiced wheatgrass. One shot gives you the chlorophyll of some 12 or more kilograms of broccoli. It acts as a blood purifier, and liver and kidney cleansing agent. In research, after two weeks of daily use, blood and tissue oxygen levels improve, as does circulation.

20 SWEET WORMWOOD: Another Chinese Herb, this has outperformed certain anti-malaria drugs and is now used by the aid agencies. It is strongly anti-microbial and anti-yeast and can be used as an effective part of an anti-candida diet. Also certain cancer treatments cause excesses of yeasts to form (for example, in Leukemia treatment) threatening the patients health further. Excess yeasts are even felt by some cancer experts to be one of the causes of cancer. However, in recent research Wormwood has been shown to have direct anti-cancer properties.

Because of EU laws, which allow you to buy cigarettes, medicines and GM foods, but not herbs in the High Street, you will have to visit a herbalist to be prescribed the above herbs. To go to the ´Our Natural Selection Shop´.

HEALTH WARNING!
Please be clear, no one is saying these herbs are not without any side-effects. Equally they may conflict with some drugs. The important point is that we are still discovering many of their benefits, albeit very slowly, because individual local herbalists just do not have the funds to conduct large scale clinical trials like the drugs companies do. You should seriously consider the usefulness of herbs as a part of your integrative cancer-fighting program. They just might make a serious difference to your health. But please make sure you go to an expert medical herbalist for clear and informed advice.

In The Fertile Fields / Reduce Blood Pressure Naturally / Friday: Engineering Week at the Museum of Science & Hist.

In the fertile fields
of our thoughts,
our feelings
and our dreams,

Flowers

have been steadily
growing,
watered by tears
still flowing,
over the graves
of those who left
unknowing,
how very much
we Loved
them.

     Flowers have been steadily growing.

When I
consider all the Love
I have known,
I am brought to
tearful appreciation.

In the chilly hours
of uncertainty,
old memories
can burn,
and leave one
to yearn.

It is then
we need to remember,
the Door never
closes,
our fear of Death never
discloses,
that we are older
than our fears,
and
younger than our
years,
that Love
is always just a heartbeat away –
the Heart
that beats within
another,
for you.

“Just like a Flower
that can shatter a stone,
the same can apply to Love
that can shatter
a hardened and fearful
Heart.”

Debra Esterline

We appear to be
separated
by a common
destiny,
but the material
plane of illusion
only reflects
you and me.

Many decisions
seem to be based
more and more
on emotion,
rather than thought
and reason,
and Prayer
and
FAITH.

Our emotions are,
often,
inadequate for dealing with
the stress
induced by superficial
and illusory
expectations
and constraints.

Yes,
we do unreasonable
and dangerous things.
Unbelievably,
we teach to a
test,
and not
to the Heart.

             The material plane of illusion.

My Dear Friends,
it does not matter
what a child has
learned,
if that precious Child
abandons all Hope.

Nothing learned
will matter,
then.

As the world evolves
to become more complex
and irrational,
we fail to realize
how very fragile we are
and dependent
upon complex interactions.

We become
more and more ignorant
about what is truly happening.
We know next to nothing
about dependency,
or each other.

Rarely,
have we appreciated
our ignorance.

As our lack of awareness,
remains unchallenged,
we stagnate
in the infancy of understanding,
and do not know,
that we do not know,
the answers.

Nobody really knows.

But,
the answers

are there.

Awareness of ignorance is the beginning of Wisdom.                    – Socrates

From every moment,
and from this moment on,
we have been
truly Blessed.

Within
the folds and flow
of fervent Prayer,
lies
the Sweet Bright Body
of Truth.

Brightly shinning,
the Vibrancy of the
Word of God
leaves the colors
of lessor words,
to fade
without a sound.

The Sweet Bright Body of Truth.

We cannot
depend
upon our judgement
alone.
We
are only
Human.

God
is with you,
and within.

Place your
Trust
where it
belongs.

“Likewise
the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:

for we know not
what we should pray for

as we ought:
but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us

with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
Romans 8:26

May God Bless you
and Abide with you
on your inner Journey,
through which we move
from sound to silence,
from plurality to unity,
and from the imperfections
of ourselves and our World around us,
to the Beautiful Presence
of the Divine within.

Goodnight.

12 ways to reduce your blood pressure naturally
By
Chris Woollams
(Former Oxford University Biochemist
and founder of CANCERactive)

January 15, 2018

Do not smoke – there’s clear research showing this puts up blood pressure
Don’t be overweight – research shows that a controlled weight loss program reduces blood pressure. Your waistline size is also linked directly to blood pressure!

Take aerobic exercise – run, walk, jog, swim. Regular daily exercise for 45 minutes where you get out of breath is what’s required.

Avoid Stress – Stress has a devastating effect on blood pressure. Pinpoint your stress triggers, and try to cut those people and things out of your life. Make time to relax and calm down. Plan your week better, include times when you work, times when you relax, times when you are enjoying other interests.

Eat a Rainbow Diet – people who stick most closely to the Rainbow Diet avoid 11 chronic illnesses that beset the Western World – one being high blood pressure. Most notable factors are:

Avoid salt – higher sodium levels in the body are linked to higher blood pressure. You should cut foods such as Chinese meals, sausages, bacon, dried meats, salted nuts and crisps. You should focus on potassium-rich foods (avocado, banana, spinach, sweet potato, apricots, pomegranate) and magnesium-rich foods (almonds, figs, spinach, dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds). Eat fresh, not processed or packaged foods.

Eat more colorful vegetablesGlutathione in vegetables and fruits reduces blood pressure; Beetroot, for example, has been shown to reduce blood pressure levels by 5 points, as it contains nitrate which converts to nitric oxide, which dilates arteries. Watermelon contains citrulline and does the same; arginine is found in pumpkin seeds and pulses and reduces blood pressure. Other nitrate containing foods include green leafy vegetables, celery, fennel and broccoli.

Eat more soluble fibre foodsoats, barley, nuts, seeds and legumes (pulses) are the favorite foods of good gut bacteria and their consumption is linked to lowered blood sugar, lowered estrogen levels and lowered blood pressure.

Eat more Mediterranean foodsExtra Virgin Olive Oil, oily fish, pomegranate, flaxseed, garlic, onions – all these have proven benefits in reducing blood pressure.

Enjoy Sunshine – We all know you increase blood levels of vitamin D if you lie in the sunshine. But did you know our levels of serotonin increase and that generates happy hormones, cutting stress, and nitric oxide reducing blood pressure.

Caffeine – think coffee increases your blood pressure? Actually, the jury is out. In some people it does; in regular drinkers it doesn’t seem to.

A Lot Like Heaven / The Bio-Initiative Report / Friday: At School for Shakespeare Rehearsal

Dedicated
to my precious Mother,
Marie Gaul Anderson.

            HELLO to Love

When Sundown
pales the sky,
when it is time
to say goodbye,
have we
ever truly said
HELLO,
hello to Love,
hello to Life,
to living,
to laughter,
to leaving?

Have we
greeted the Evening
of Life,
as we did
our Morning?

Did we ever
truly come to know
the Sun that rises,
is the same Sun
that sets,
that the Heart
that beats for one
can live for all
and die without
regret,
that the Light
of Love
can shine
throughout our lives
and into the Hearts
of each and every
one?

     The same Sun that sets.

From where I came,
the Earth
looked a lot like Heaven.
Smiles
came from one
who gave me
Life,
who answered my
Prayers,
who forgave me,
sustained me,
and showed me
the Way,
who put me
to bed at night,
and turned on the Light
of Day,
who kept me clothed and fed,
and filled my Life with
Hope and Joy,
day after day after day.

The Child once we were can remain.

She
took me
to Church
and with me
Prayed,
showed me
there is more to Life
than living,
more to receive
in giving,
more to Love
than we can ever
know,
measure,
or understand.

Let us give thanks
for the precious Mothers
of our World.
It is their
Love
that sustains,
that remains,
that lights the Lamp
of Hope.

The Love of a Mother
insures
that the Child
once we were,
can remain.

Goodnight.

         A Lot Like Heaven.

Thank You!

My Dear Friends,
the following information
is truly
IMPORTANT.

Please
read it carefully
and take it
to Heart.

Our precious children
need our guidance
and good judgment.

Each new technology is a whole new World. And under every Flower there,    a serpent lies coiled. – Wm. C. Anderson

Cell Phones and Cancer

The World Health Organization
has classified cell phone radiation
as a class B carcinogen.

Dr. David Carpenter,
Dean at the School of Public Health
State University of New York,
believes that up to 30% of all childhood cancers
are associated with
electromagnetic (EMF) radiation exposure.

Cell phones emit high levels
of electromagnetic radiation
directly into your head,
actually heating it up in the process.
There is increasing amounts of scientific evidence
linking this to brain cancers.

Multiple recent studies,
including international scientists,
are urging governments to place stricter regulations
on cellphone use,
particularly due to the latest outcome
of their investigations:
Young people who use cell phones
before the age of 20
are five times more likely
to be at risk for malignant brain tumors
than children who do not use mobile phones.

Researchers of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report
agree that approximately ten years of cell phone use
may lead to tumors.
There are significant studies that directly correlate
RF radiation from cell phones with brain tumors.

The BioInitiative 2012 Report
was prepared by 29 authors from ten countries,
ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs,
and three MsC, MA or MPHs.
Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society.

                     She turned on the Light of Day.

Studies report that:

The chance of developing a brain tumor
goes up as much as 40%
after a decade of cell phone use.
Yes,
people are 5 times more likely
to develop a brain tumor
if they began using a cell phone
before the age of 20.
People have twice the risk
of developing the cancer known as “Glioma”,
if they use their cell phones for half an hour a day
for more than a decade.

People using cell phones for 2000 hours
have 240% greater risk for malignant brain tumors.

A significant report was released in 2009
by the International EMF Collaborative,
a team of international EMF scientists and activists,
entitled “Cell Phones and Brain Tumors:
15 Reasons for Concern, Science, Spin
and the Truth Behind Interphone”.

read more on children and cell phones from WebMd

Another study by an Israeli research group
found that there’s recently been a sharp 4-fold increase
in malignant tumors of the parotid gland
on the side of the face
the cell phone users generally hold the phone.
Parotid tumors have historically been very rare
and have shown up in people after the age of 50.
Most cases since 2001 have occurred
in people under the age of 20.

       More to Love than we can ever know.

Cordless land line phones
emit high levels of EMF radiation
and can be even more dangerous than cell phones!
And usually we speak longer on cordless phones

More than 31 million children use cell phones daily
close to four hours a day.
Cell phone radiation danger to children
is especially of concern,
as children absorb 50% more radiation than adults do,
because their skulls are thinner and smaller,
and EMFs penetrate much more deeply into their brains.
Their brains are more conducive to radiation
due to the higher water and ion concentration
in a developing brain.

Many health symptoms
due to cell phone radiation
show up early on and may precede
more serious disorders and diseases.

They include:

Chronic colds & flues
Headaches and “mind-fog”
Digestive disorders
Sleep disturbance.

Memory Loss
Depression/anxiety
Chronic pain
Dizziness

        There is more to Life than living.

Brain cancer has now surpassed leukemia
as the number one cancer killing children,
and many scientists believe
this is directly linked to the exponential increases
in cell phone use
and other wireless devices.

One of the most comprehensive studies
testing the cell phone – cancer link on children
was conducted by Professor Lennart Hardell in Sweden.
The results of the study indicate that
children and teens
are 5 times more likely to get brain cancer
if they use cell phones.

A study conducted in 2009
by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
on autistic children
and their mothers during pregnancy
shows significant results,
strongly suggesting that:

“electromagnetic radiation
in the sleeping environment
of the mothers during pregnancy,
as well as electromagnetic radiation
in the sleeping environment of children,
may be a key contributing factor
if not a causative one –
in neurological impairments in children,
including autism.”

Forgive us Lord,
for we know not
what we do.

Come on Folks,
put the phone down
and just talk to your child.
Old fashioned conversations
are GREAT
and
much safer.

THAT
is called Love.

Now,
please don’t CALL me
and tell me
you agree.

“Oh I believe
there are, Angels among us
Sent down to us,
from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me,
in our darkest hours
To show us how to live,
to teach us how to give
To guide us with the light of Love.”

Your Happiness Matters Most of All / 8 of the Worst Foods for Your Body / Friday: SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium

Can your eyes find the Sun?

Your happiness
matters
most of all.

When
you take a look
around,
can your eyes find
the Sun,
knowing the day
is not done?

All existence
seems
to fade,
like the dimming
of the Light
when the Sun
takes flight.

But,
as God in our
thoughts
becomes Prayer,
we come to know
deep in our Hearts,
that day
is never done,
and all things,
all thoughts
become One.

       When the Sun takes flight.

As long as
God
dwells in our Lives,
our Lives can be
truly lived.
.
My Friends,
the great Truths
are simple:
hold someone
by the hand,
and let the Light of Life
begin again.

It does not
take much Love
to keep you
warm
night and day.

We can Love
completely,
without complete
understanding.
Love
does that.
.
“Look at this man

So Blessed with inspiration.
Look at this Soul.
Still searching for Salvation.
I don’t know much,
But I know I Love you.
And that may be
all I need to know.”
Cynthia Weil, Tom Snow, Barry Mann

             It does not take much Love.

    My Dear Friends,
a Life
left to chance,
may never
dance.

“I have no desire
to live comfortably,
nor do I wish
to be rich.
To be happy
is to wander freely,
to study the Book
of Nature
with my feet
over its
Leaves.”
Paracelsus

To taste the
Day,
it must be
sweet.
The bitter of Life,
is far too often
tasteless

Use your Love
to exhaust
your Hate.

Your happiness matters.

“If
you stare into
the abyss
long enough,
the abyss
stares back at
you.”
Nietzsche

Both
Thomas Edison,
father of recorded sound,
and Alexander Graham Bell,
inventor of the telephone,
stared into the abyss,
and made these discoveries while
researching into the
Spirit World.

Edison wanted to
listen in on the
Spirits.
Television
was invented as a result
of trying to capture psychic influences
on gases fluctuating in front of
a cathode ray tube.

The origin of the television set
was heavily shrouded in
spiritualism and the occult,
writes author Stefan Andriopoulos in his book
Ghostly Apparitions.

The television was intended as an almost
magical box
through which we could watch distant events unfold,
a kind of technological
crystal ball.

 Andriopoulos’s book puts the TV
into a long line of other “optical media”
that go back at least as far as
weird Renaissance experiments
involving technologically-induced
illusions,
such as concave mirrors, magic lanterns,
disorienting walls of smoke, and other
ghostly apparitions”
and “phantasmagoric projections”
created by speciality devices.
.
These were conjuring tricks, sure,
but they relied on sophisticated understandings
of such basic things as light, shadow, and acoustics,
making an audience see –
and believe in
– an illusion.

Understanding
the origin of technologies

understand the allure
and the effect
they have upon our
children.
.
Each new technology
is a whole new World.
And under every Flower there,
a serpent lies
coiled.

Goodnight.

“Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the Flower;

We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death
Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears”
– William Wordsworth

8 of the Worst Foods for Your Body

Many people think of healthy eating as consuming a certain number of calories per day. But the truth is, it’s not just about how much you eat but the quality of the food you eat, and how safely it’s been produced. Read on for some of the worst foods you can put in your body –
you’ll certainly be surprised by a few!

1. Microwave Popcorn

Workers in microwave popcorn factories have actually developed an extremely rare form of lung cancer from inhaling fumes. If that isn’t enough of a reason to avoid the stuff, here’s another: the lining of the bags contains perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a substance that has been linked to several other forms of cancer and infertility.

Plus, so many microwave popcorns are loaded with bad fats and sodium. Homemade air-popped popcorn can actually be a health food, believe it or not, so stick to that for your next movie night.

 2. Non-Organic Apples

Last year, apples won the dubious honor of being the most pesticide-laden produce. Because they aren’t very resistant to pests, apples tend to get sprayed more. They’re also treated with pesticides to extend their shelf life.  If you’re an apple lover, always, always, always buy organic  – or don’t buy ‘em at all. Your body will thank you!

3. Soda

Several studies have directly linked soda consumption to higher instances of cardiovascular disease, cancer, depression, obesity—you name it. Diet soda isn’t off the hook, either. Here are 9 Disturbing Side Effects of Soda.

4. Chips

Many brands of chips contain unimaginable amounts of sodium and fat—one bag can often be more than a day’s worth. But it’s not just the nutritional concerns to think about here – chips also contain acrylamide, a chemical that comes with an increased risk of several forms of cancer and infertility. You can also find the scary stuff in french fries.

5. Canned Tomatoes

Aside from being far less delicious than the real thing, canned tomatoes have the added “perk” of bisphenol-A (BPA) on the cans’ lining. This is the stuff nightmares are made of: BPA has been linked to fetal abnormalities, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, thyroid issues and even cancer. It’s been banned for use in baby bottles, and overall bans are being considered nationwide. You can get up to 50 mg of the stuff from canned tomatoes; the acidity makes them more difficult to package than most products, so a safe alternative has been difficult to find. Your best bet, though, is to avoid them all together. Stick to fresh tomatoes or, if need be, tomatoes packaged in glass jars.

6. NonOrganic Celery

Celery is one of the dirtiest of all vegetables—the Environmental Working Group has founded dozens upon dozens of different pesticides on the non-organic stuff.  As with apples, go organic or don’t go at all.

7. Milk with Artificial Hormones

Many farmers give their cows artificial hormones so they will produce more milk — good for their bottom line, not so good for our health. These hormones lead to higher rates of another hormone, IGF-1, which is thought to increase instances of cancer in humans. Look for milk that is certified organic, or labelled with either BGH-free or BST-free.

8. Margarine

If margarine didn’t have any food dye in it, it’d be a delightful shade of gray. If that isn’t evidence enough, what is?!  Though margarine is often thought of as a healthier version of butter (there’s no cholesterol, right?) it’s also a wonderfully terrible source of trans fats – stuff that does, indeed, raise your cholesterol. Here’s your excuse to go back to the real stuff – or, of course, olive oil!
