Let Love Be YOU / Cancer IS Preventable / No School for the next two weeks

 

Climb the Mountain.
To the high land
reside.
And take someone with you,
someone in need,
to
be
by your side.

My Dear Friends,
the Light of a Star
shines down upon us.
And when darkness falls,
with God by our side,
we will find
our way.
.
A Promise lives
within the Heart
that beats for
everyone
that night has
overcome.
For when we
rise,
we will find
the Sun.

When shadows fall,
the Journey has just begun
to the Light of Day,
to the Time
when night is overcome,
and you rise to see
the Light
of our Beautiful Sun.

“May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away.
May it be you journey on
To Light the day.
When the night is overcome
You rise to find the Sun.”
Ni B. Eith, Ryan Roma Shane

Love
may pretend to die
in the winter
of discontent.

In blizzards
of emotions
lost,
fragile Hearts may feel
a killing frost.

       The shadow’s call will fly away.

But tears of
Joy and of pain
can
become like falling rain
,
to fill an
Ocean
you sail
across,
to bring Love
Home again.

Each breathless word
whispered
by the Sacred Song
of your Life
to help someone,
becomes Music
in each moment
you
are truly alive.

Gently close
your tired eyes
and Dream of Peace
and Pray,
for we
to live as
“One”.

“We danced amongst the Stars that night,
When Joy had fallen far from sight.
We danced under the Sun so bright
And when all seemed lost,
we held on tight.
.
We danced to the music of Hummingbirds.
And we danced in the silence
when there were no words.
We danced in the shadows of fear and doubt.
And we danced when we questioned
what Life’s about.
.
We danced amongst the evergreens
That posed for painters Winter scenes.
We danced in the Winters bitter chill.
And when we danced
our World
stood still.

.
For that’s what Love was meant to be,
To find the dance when we cannot see.
To write a new song when the music stops,
With lyrics that caress every tear that drops.
For when the rhythm changes and tempo slowed,
We’re called to dance with the seeds we sowed.
.
For Life is hard,
there is no doubt.
But Dancing through it,
is what Life’s about.

 – Ernesto Cortazar

Your Immortal Love Song
always remains
in our World.
Absolutely Beautiful
and meaningful.

Yes,
the gentle wind
of words whispered
in the Light of Love,
will be heard
from Above.
Even
on a cold night
in the fragile Life
of someone in need.
.
“For the Beauty of the Earth,
For the Beauty of the skies
For the Love which from our Birth
Over and around us lies.
.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful Hymn of Praise.
For the Beauty of the hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of Light.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful Hymn of Praise.
.
For the joy of Human Love
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on Earth and friends Above.
For all gentle thoughts and mild.
  .

Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of Praise
For each perfect Gift of Thine.
To our race so freely given
Graces Human and Divine,
Flowers of Earth and Buds of Heaven.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn,
our joyful hymn of Praise
.

According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes… That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer – causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies – and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

  1. The food you eat…
    2. the air you breathe…
    3. the clothes you wear…
    4. the water you drink…
    5. personal care products you use…
    6. medications you take…
    7. the water you bathe in…
    8. virtually everything you consume, and
    9. everything you do – or are exposed to –
    causes cancer these days!

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in 
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

  • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
  • Genetically modified food
  • Most laundry detergents
  • Commercial hair dyes
  • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein) Hey, get an all electric car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Granite counter-tops (which emit radon) Yes, My Friend! Get rid of the granite counter tops.
  • Rancid peanuts and seeds
  • Canola oil
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Food laced with pesticides
  • Chemicals from aerosol cans
  • Mammograms
  • X-Rays
  • Food microwaved in plastic containers (including plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
  • Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.      $   $   $   $   $   $   $   $
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.

My friends, until we start electing people to represent US, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply Loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and Loving people to represent us. Frankly, these individuals need to Love us more than they Love themselves.

We MUST recruit good people to run for office.

These Loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their Hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our precious Children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous Heart of this Nation, there is no hope.

Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

And yes, it is a cancer of the Heart, our Heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing.”

Today is Tomorrow in Yesterday’s Dream / Power Lines, Electrical Devices and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation / Friday: At School – Shakespeare Play Production

Today
is Tomorrow,
in Yesterday’s Dream.

And the Season
of the Heart,
is always
Spring.

Let every precious breath
you take,
be
the very first breath
of Spring.

Yes,
the Time has come.
Wake up
and come alive.

If
you have missed
so many things
to do,
things you have
never done,
always remember that
Time
is in a swirl,
and it will quickly
take from you
what you need,
if you delay.

Our words
can betray much
to each other.
But more dearly
than the spoken word
can tell,
is the Love
in your eyes,
that speaks
more clearly
than words
will ever tell.

My Dear Friends,
to enjoy the pleasures
of this Life,
they must be
simple.

“Life is really simple,
but we insist on making it
complicated.”
Confucius

Simplicity
opens the door
to Beauty
and beyond.

If we only knew how often
simplicity and complexity
are entwined within every second
of our existence,
we would scarcely be able to breathe.
Such is the Beauty of
simplicity.

Within the simplicity
of Joy,
and the manifestation of Love,
is the underlying substance
of all that is
or ever was.

Simplicity
is the door to experiences of sublime importance.
Without simplicity,
they would be beyond our capacity
to understand or comprehend.
Simplicity is the key
to opening the windows
of Heaven
on Earth.

But complexity,
My Dear Friend,
brings chaos
into range.

“Simplicity is
the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Lingering Sunsets
are God’s invitation,
to walk slowly
past the Beautiful Gifts
He
has provided all around:
Flowers that abound,
the Grass
so green
it lends new meaning
to colors that
may be found,
with Trees
like Cathedrals
pointed toward the Sky,
where you and I
may place our
Hearts,
and our bountiful
Dreams.

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old,
you don’t understand it yourself.”  
Albert Einstein

Rainbows
in His Sacred Sky
are there
for you and I
to see a debt
has long been paid.
God’s Promise
was made,
and His Beautiful Language
will linger long
for us to see
beyond
His Love
for you
and me.

It is now the time
to dance with the rhythm
of the falling rain,
and join yourself
with all the Beauty of the Natural World
and receive its
bountiful Blessings
and Gifts.

The curvature
of our cravings
for more and more,
is not
curve-linear,
not round or smooth
or elliptical.
It is
jagged,
defined by violence
and war.

But,
we can do better,
we can do
more.

As the collective Human mind
releases
its desires and cravings,
it releases the hold
it has on you.

“People from the same ethnic group
who live closely
are more likely to instigate and organize each other
to fight rival ethnic groups,
whereas ethnic groups more dispersed within a country
are less likely to lead to intrastate conflict
due to a lack of coordination.”

Geography of Conflict

We
do not war
with
each other.
We war
in prescribed ways –
one geographical accident
of birth,
opposed to another
in geography
that is simply
birthed
in a different location.

“War is an inherently geographical concept:
it is fought across territories,
by territorially-bounded states,
and its outcomes influence the remapping
of that system of states.
Wars create geographies
and geographies create wars.
Colin Flint

My Friends,
bullets
that take the Life
of another,
never
hit the ground.
.
They also
take the precious Lives
of many, many others,
unnamed and unknown.
They kill the Children,
the sons and daughters
of us all,
never to be born.
They destroy
all Hope
for Children of Children of Children –
and on and on and on,
a number reaching into Infinity,
and far, far beyond.

“Whoever saves a single Life
is as if one saves
the entire World.”
Talmud

The cost of war
can never be
measured.
It cannot be
found,
even in the imagination,
or the perplexities
of mathematics
unknown and profound.

The true cost
is an Infinity
of
Infinities.

No
such number
will ever be
found.

“Thou shalt not kill.”
Exodus 20:13

Everyone,
as a Child,

has a beautiful Heart.

Every Day
is a wonderful Gift
and a Blessed day.

Happiness
may come into your Life
today.
And a small happiness
can lead to great Joy
throughout your
Life.

There is Infinite Love
and Hope and Light
in you.

Let the pathway
for others
be
through your Sacred
Heart.
Take someone
by the hand
and help them,
and they
will show you
the way.

Through the Heart
of another
lies
a truly Joyful
day.

Goodnight.

Power Lines, Electrical Devices
and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation

What is extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation?

Radiation is the emission or sending out of energy from any source. X-rays are an example of radiation, but so is the light that comes from the sun and the heat that is constantly coming off our bodies.

When talking about radiation and cancer, many people think of specific kinds of radiation such as x-rays or the radiation in nuclear reactors. But these are not the only types of radiation that concern us when we think about radiation risks to human health.

Radiation exists across a spectrum from very high-energy (also referred to as high-frequency) radiation to very low-energy (or low-frequency) radiation. This is sometimes referred to as the electromagnetic spectrum.

Examples of high-energy radiation include x-rays and gamma rays. They, as well as some higher energy ultraviolet (UV) rays, are classified as ionizing radiation, which means that they have enough energy to remove an electron from (ionize) an atom. Ionizing radiation can damage the DNA inside cells, which can lead to mutations and the uncontrolled cell growth we know as cancer.

Extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation is at the low-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum and is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation has enough energy to move atoms around or make them vibrate, but not enough to directly damage DNA. ELF radiation has even lower energy than other types of non-ionizing radiation like radiofrequency radiation, visible light, and infrared.

With most types of radiation, the electric and magnetic fields are coupled. Because they act as one, they are considered together as an electromagnetic field (EMF). But with ELF radiation, the magnetic field and the electrical field can exist and act independently, so they are often studied separately. Typically, we use the term “magnetic field” to indicate ELF radiation from a magnetic field, while we use “electric field” to mean ELF radiation from an electric field.

The possible link between electromagnetic fields and cancer has been a subject of controversy for several decades. It’s not clear exactly how electromagnetic fields, a form of low-energy, non-ionizing radiation, can increase cancer risk. Plus, because we are all exposed to different amounts of these fields at different times, the issue has been hard to study.

Electric and magnetic fields

All radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum is produced by the interactions of 2 forces, referred to as fields. Radiation has both an electric field and a magnetic field.

Electric fields are the forces acting on charged particles (parts of atoms), like electrons or protons, which cause them to move. Electric current is simply the flow of electrons produced by an electric field. The strength of an electric field is often expressed as volts per meter (V/m) or, for stronger fields, as kilovolts per meter (kV/m), where a kilovolt is 1000 volts.

magnetic field is created when charged particles are in motion. The strength of a magnetic field can be expressed in many different units, including tesla (T), microtesla (µT or one millionth of a tesla), and gauss (G), where one G equals 100 µT.

How are people exposed to ELF radiation?

Generating, transmitting, distributing, and using electricity all expose people to ELF radiation. Power lines, household wiring, and any device that uses electricity can generate ELF radiation. Thus any electric device, from refrigerators and vacuum cleaners to televisions and computer monitors (when they are on) are sources of ELF radiation. Even electric blankets expose people to ELF radiation.

How much electromagnetic radiation you are exposed to depends on the strength of the electromagnetic field, your distance from the source of the field, and the length of time you are exposed. The highest exposure occurs when the person is very close to a source putting out a strong field and stays there for a long period.

Does ELF radiation cause cancer?

Researchers use 2 main types of studies to try to figure out if something causes cancer.

  • Lab studies: In lab studies, animals are exposed to different levels of the substance (sometimes at extremely high levels) to see if this exposure causes tumors or other health problems. Researchers might also expose normal human cells in a lab dish to see if this causes the types of changes that are seen in cancer cells. It’s not always clear that the results from these types of studies directly apply to humans, but lab studies are a good way to find out if an exposure might possibly cause cancer.
  • Studies in people: Other types of studies look at cancer rates in different groups of people. Such a study might compare the cancer rate in an exposed group to the rate in a group with lower exposures, or to a group not exposed at all. Sometimes the exposed group’s cancer rate is compared to the cancer rate in the general population. But it can be hard to know what the results of these studies mean, because many other factors might affect the results. For example, people are typically exposed to many substances other than the one being studied, and these other exposures could affect the results.

In most cases neither type of study provides conclusive evidence on its own, so researchers usually look at both lab-based and human studies when trying to figure out if something can cause cancer.

Studies in the lab

Several large studies have looked at the possible effects of ELF magnetic fields on cancer in rats and mice. These studies expose the animals to magnetic fields much stronger than what people are normally exposed to at home, with fields ranging from 2 to 5000 microtesla (µT). Most of these studies have found no increase in the risk of any type of cancer. In fact, the risk of some types of cancer was actually lower in the animals exposed to the ELF radiation. One study did show an increased risk of tumors that start in thyroid cells, called C-cells, in male rats at some exposures. This increased risk was not seen in female rats or in mice, and was not seen at the highest field strength. These inconsistencies, and the fact that these findings were not consistently seen in the other studies, make it hard for scientists to conclude that the observed increased risk of tumors is from the ELF radiation.

Other studies in mice and rats have looked specifically for increases in leukemia and lymphoma as a result of exposure to ELF radiation, but these studies have also not found a link.

Studies in people

Studying the effects of ELF radiation in people can be hard, for many reasons:

Exposure to ELF radiation is very common, so it’s not possible to compare people who are exposed with people who aren’t exposed. Instead, studies try to compare people exposed at higher levels with people exposed at lower levels.

It is very hard to determine how much ELF radiation a person has been exposed to, especially over a long period. As far as we know, the effects of ELF radiation do not add up over time, and there is no test that can measure how much exposure a person has had.

Researchers can get a snapshot of ELF exposures by having a person wear a device that records their exposure levels over hours or days. Or, researchers can measure the magnetic or electrical field strength in a person’s home or workplace settings.

Other options include estimating exposure based on the wiring configuration of someone’s workplace/home or on its distance from power lines. But these methods result in exposure estimates that have a lot of uncertainty and that can produce biased estimates of total exposure. They typically do not account for a person’s ELF exposures while in other places, they don’t measure ELF exposures in every location that person has ever lived or worked over their lifetime. As a result, there are no good ways to accurately estimate someone’s long-term exposure, which is what matters most when looking for possible effects on cancer risk.

In children

  • A number of studies have looked at a possible link between ELF radiation from magnetic fields in the home and childhood leukemia, with mixed results. Still, when the findings from these studies are combined, a small increase in risk is seen for children at the highest exposure levels compared to those with the lowest exposure levels. Studies looking at the effect of ELF electric fields on childhood leukemia have not found a link.

Studies have generally not found any strong links between ELF electric or magnetic fields and other types of childhood cancers.

In adults

Although several studies have looked at possible links between ELF exposures in adults and cancer, most have not found a link.

What expert agencies say

Several national and international agencies study different exposures in the environment to determine if they can cause cancer. (Something that causes cancer or helps cancer grow is called a carcinogen.) The American Cancer Society looks to these organizations to evaluate the risks based on evidence from laboratory, animal, and human research studies.

Based on animal and human evidence like the examples above, some expert agencies have evaluated the cancer-causing nature of ELF radiation.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO). One of its major goals is to identify causes of cancer. In 2002, IARC considered the evidence for ELF magnetic and electric fields separately:

  • It found “limited evidence” in humans for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields in relation to childhood leukemia, with “inadequate evidence” in relation to all other cancers. It found “inadequate evidence” for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields based on studies in lab animals.
  • It found “inadequate evidence” for the carcinogenicity of ELF electric fields in humans.

Based on this assessment, IARC has classified ELF magnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” It has classified  ELF electric fields as “not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans.”

In 1999, the US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) described the scientific evidence suggesting that ELF exposure poses a health risk as “weak,” but noted that it cannot be recognized as entirely safe, and considered it to be a “possible” human carcinogen.

How can I avoid exposure to ELF radiation?

It’s not clear that exposure to ELF radiation is harmful, but there are things you can do to lower your exposure if you are concerned. Your exposure is based on the strength of the ELF radiation coming from each source, how close you are to each, and how long you spend in the field.

The NIEHS recommends that people concerned about their exposure to EMF (and ELF radiation) find out where their major EMF sources are and move away from them or limit the time spent near them. For example, moving even an arm’s length away from a source can dramatically lower exposure to its field.

Power lines

People who are concerned about ELF radiation exposure from high-power electrical lines should keep in mind that the intensity of any exposure goes down significantly as you get farther away from the source. On the ground, the strength of the electromagnetic field is highest directly under the power line. As you get farther away, you are exposed to less and less, with the level eventually matching normal home background levels. The electromagnetic field directly under a power line is typically in the range of what you could be exposed to when using certain household appliances.

If you are concerned about your exposure to electromagnetic sources around you (including power lines), you can measure the field strength with a device called a gaussmeter.

War After War / 20 Ways To Never Get Cancer / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

The Flowering of Truth
reveals the youth
of our existence.

Like a Child,
piece by piece
we combine bits of experience
into something elusive
and illusionairy.
As if we
define the World
around us.
And,
we do.

We plebeians of procrastination
often defer
from Peaceful pursuit.

               The Flowering of Truth.

In debt
from our desire
for prosperity,
we savoir the substance
of our circumstance,
while our good intentions,
rare for the moment,
perturbate in their orbits
around
the Human Heart.

In Time,
tainted with theatrics
in Love
with our self-esteem,
we live in isolated absence
of forethought.

In these tempest-tossed times,
there is the temptation
to tread lightly
upon the past,
which becomes prologue
and profound.
Our past is filled
with stones
to mark the Graves
of many,
known and unknown.

The Treasure
of our memory
is vast
and beyond Being.

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”                 – William Faulkner

The fierce breath
of History
emanates from our ignorance
buried deep within
the Human Heart.

Between the violent breaths,
prospects for Peace
grow into illusion,
and the cycle begats
war after war.

The sounds of silence,
from our precious breathless deceased,
spiral upward
with startling clarity,
in sufferance of
mortal and moral anguish.

And still,
we
do not listen.

The American Battle Monuments Commission maintains 24 permanent American burial grounds on foreign soil.

Let us remember the past,
and Honor those
who gave their precious Lives
for us.
Let us learn from the past,
so that we do not remain,
as George Santayana reminds us,
savages or infants.
Let us learn
and Lovingly create
a Peaceful future,
filled with Forgiveness
and Love for all
who transgressed
against us.
Let us do this
for our precious Children.

“Those who do not remember their past
are condemned
to repeat their mistakes.
Those who do not read History
are doomed to repeat it.
Those who fail to learn
from the mistakes of their predecessors
are destined to repeat them.
Those who do not know History’s mistakes
are doomed to repeat them.”
George Santayana

My Dear Friends,
let us empower those
who can help
move our precious Lives
forward forever.
Let us help those
who can resurrect
the Future.

To do so,
let us help
ourselves.
Let us empower
we.

Let there be Peace on Earth
and let it begin with me.
Let there be Peace on Earth,
the Peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
in perfect harmony.
Let Peace begin with me,
let this be the moment now.
.
With every step I take
let this be my solemn vow,
to take each moment,
and live each moment
in Peace Eternally.
.
Let there be Peace on Earth
and let it begin with
me.

Jill Jackson-Miller and Sy Miller

Pierced by arrows
of discontent,
we cannot even now
define
our Blessings,
so abundantly bestowed.

  His Will is made abundantly clear.

To know
the Will of God
reveals the destiny
of Mankind.
And His Will
is made
abundantly clear
in His Word.

You
may not Believe
in God.
But,
He Believes
in YOU.

You Faith
is
your Love of
God.
And Love is,
at the end of Life,
truly ALL
that remains,
and all that
ever was.

Goodnight.

                 All that ever was.

20 Ways To Never Get Cancer

Little habits that can save your life.

First, the good news: You probably won’t get cancer.

That is, if you have a healthy lifestyle. “As many as 70% of known causes of cancers are avoidable and related to lifestyle,” says Thomas A. Sellers, PhD, associate director for cancer prevention and control at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Diet, exercise, and avoidance of tobacco products are, of course, your first line of defense, but recent research has uncovered many small, surprising ways you can weave even more disease prevention into your everyday life.

Try these novel strategies and your risk of cancer could dwindle even more.

1. Filter your tap water
You’ll reduce your exposure to known or suspected carcinogens and hormone-disrupting chemicals. A report from the President’s Cancer Panel on how to reduce exposure to carcinogens suggests that home-filtered tap water is a safer bet than bottled water, whose quality often is not higher – and in some cases is worse – than that of municipal sources, according to a study by the Environmental Working Group. (Consumer Reports’ top picks for faucet-mounted filters: Culligan, Pur Vertical, and the Brita OPFF-100.) Store water in stainless steel or glass to avoid chemical contaminants such as BPA that can leach from plastic bottles.

2. Stop topping your tank
So say the EPA and the President’s Cancer Panel: Pumping one last squirt of gas into your car after the nozzle clicks off can spill fuel and foil the pump’s vapor recovery system, designed to keep toxic chemicals such as cancer-causing benzene out of the air, where they can come in contact with your skin or get into your lungs.

3. Marinate meat first
Processed, charred, and well-done meats can contain cancer-causing heterocyclic amines, which form when meat is seared at high temperatures, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which get into food when it’s charcoal broiled. “The recommendation to cut down on grilled meat has really solid scientific evidence behind it,” says Cheryl Lyn Walker, PhD, a professor of carcinogenesis at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. If you do grill, add rosemary and thyme to your favorite marinade and soak meat for at least an hour before cooking. The antioxidant-rich spices can cut HCAs by as much as 87%, according to research at Kansas State University.

4. Caffeinate every day
Java lovers who drank 5 or more cups of caffeinated coffee a day had a 40% decreased risk of brain cancer, compared with people who drank the least, in a 2010 British study. A 5-cup-a-day coffee habit reduces risks of oral and throat cancer almost as much. Researchers credit the caffeine: Decaf had no comparable effect. But coffee was a more potent protector against these cancers than tea, which the British researchers said also offered protection against brain cancer.

5. Water down your risk
Drinking plenty of water and other liquids may reduce the risk of bladder cancer by diluting the concentration of cancer-causing agents in urine and helping to flush them through the bladder faster. Drink at least 8 cups of liquid a day, suggests the American Cancer Society.

6. Load up on green greens
Next time you’re choosing salad fixings, reach for the darkest varieties. The chlorophyll that gives them their color is loaded with magnesium, which some large studies have found lowers the risk of colon cancer in women. “Magnesium affects signaling in cells, and without the right amount, cells may do things like divide and replicate when they shouldn’t,” says Walker. Just 1/2 cup of cooked spinach provides 75 mg of magnesium, 20% of the daily value.

7. Snack on Brazil nuts
They’re a stellar source of selenium, an antioxidant that lowers the risk of bladder cancer in women, according to research from Dartmouth Medical School. Other studies have found that people with high blood levels of selenium have lower rates of dying of lung cancer and colorectal cancer. Researchers think selenium not only protects cells from free radical damage but also may enhance immune function and suppress formation of blood vessels that nourish tumors.

8. Burn off your risk
Moderate exercise such as brisk walking 2 hours a week cuts risk of breast cancer 18%. Regular workouts may lower your risks by helping you burn fat, which otherwise produces its own estrogen, a known contributor to breast cancer. (Try these 14 Walking Workouts That Blast Fat.)

9. Skip the dry cleaner
A solvent known as perc (short for perchloroethylene) that’s used in traditional dry cleaning may cause liver and kidney cancers and leukemia, according to an EPA finding backed in early 2010 by the National Academies of Science. The main dangers are to workers who handle chemicals or treated clothes using older machines, although experts have not concluded that consumers are also at increased cancer risk. Less toxic alternatives: Hand-wash clothes with mild soap and air-dry them, spot cleaning if necessary with white vinegar.

10. Ask about breast density
Women whose mammograms have revealed breast density readings of 75% or more have a breast cancer risk 4 to 5 times higher than that of women with low density scores, according to recent research. One theory is that denser breasts result from higher levels of estrogen – making exercise particularly important (see #8). “Shrinking your body fat also changes growth factors, signaling proteins such as adipokines and hormones like insulin in ways that tend to turn off cancer-promoting processes in cells,” Walker says.

11. Head off cell phone risks
Use your cell phone only for short calls or texts, or use a hands-free device that keeps the phone – and the radio frequency energy it emits—away from your head. The point is more to preempt any risk than to protect against a proven danger: Evidence that cell phones increase brain cancer risk is “neither consistent nor conclusive,” says the President’s Cancer Panel report. But a number of review studies suggest there’s a link.

12. Block cancer with color
Choosing your outdoor outfit wisely may help protect against skin cancer, say Spanish scientists. In their research, blue and red fabrics offered significantly better protection against the sun’s UV rays than white and yellow ones did. Don’t forget to put on a hat: Though melanoma can appear anywhere on the body, it’s more common in areas the sun hits, and researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have found that people with melanomas on the scalp or neck die at almost twice the rate of people with the cancer on other areas of the body.

13. Pick a doc with a past
Experience – lots of it – is critical when it comes to accurately reading mammograms. A study from the University of California, San Francisco, found that doctors with at least 25 years’ experience were more accurate at interpreting images and less likely to give false positives. Ask about your radiologist’s track record. If she is freshly minted or doesn’t check a high volume of mammograms, get a second read from someone with more mileage.

14. Eat clean foods
The President’s Cancer Panel recommends buying meat free of antibiotics and added hormones, which are suspected of causing endocrine problems, including cancer. The report also advises that you purchase produce grown without pesticides and wash conventionally grown food thoroughly to remove residues. (The foods with the most pesticides: celery, peaches, strawberries, apples, and blueberries. See the full list of dirtiest fruits and vegetables here.) “At least 40 known carcinogens are found in pesticides and we should absolutely try to reduce exposure,” Sellers says.

15. Do a folic acid check
The B vitamin, essential for women who may become or are pregnant to prevent birth defects, is a double-edged sword when it comes to cancer risk. Consuming too much of the synthetic form (not folate, found in leafy green veggies, orange juice, and other foods) has been linked to increased colon cancer risk, as well as higher lung cancer and prostate cancer risks. Rethink your multivitamin, especially if you eat a lot of cereal and fortified foods. A CDC study discovered that half of supplement users who took supplements with more than 400 mcg of folic acid exceeded 1,000 mcg per day of folic acid. Most supplements pack 400 mcg. Individual supplements (of vitamin D and calcium, for instance) may be a smarter choice for most women who aren’t thinking of having kids.

16. Up your calcium intake
Milk’s main claim to fame may also help protect you from colon cancer. Those who took calcium faithfully for 4 years had a 36% reduction in the development of new precancerous colon polyps 5 years after the study had ended, revealed Dartmouth Medical School researchers. (They tracked 822 people who took either 1,200 mg of calcium every day or a placebo.) Though the study was not on milk itself, you can get the same amount of calcium in three 8-ounce glasses of fat-free milk, along with an 8-ounce serving of yogurt or a 2- to 3-ounce serving of low-fat cheese daily.

17. Commit to whole grains
You know whole wheat is better for you than white bread. Here’s more proof why you should switch once and for all: If you eat a lot of things with a high glycemic load—a measurement of how quickly food raises your blood sugar—you may run a higher risk of colorectal cancer than women who eat low-glycemic-load foods, found a Harvard Medical School study involving 38,000 women. The problem eats are mostly white: white bread, pasta, potatoes, and sugary pastries. The low-glycemic-load stuff comes with fiber.

18. Pay attention to pain
If you’re experiencing a bloated belly, pelvic pain, and an urgent need to urinate, see your doctor. These symptoms may signal ovarian cancer, particularly if they’re severe and frequent. Women and physicians often ignore these symptoms, and that’s the very reason that this disease can be deadly. When caught early, before cancer has spread outside the ovary, the relative 5-year survival rate for ovarian cancer is a jaw-dropping 90 to 95%.

19. Avoid unnecessary scans
CT scans are a great diagnostic tool, but they deliver much more radiation than x-rays and may be overused, says Barton Kamen, MD, PhD, chief medical officer for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In fact, researchers suggest that one-third of CT scans could be unnecessary. High doses of radiation can trigger leukemia, so make sure scans are not repeated if you see multiple doctors, and ask if another test, such as an ultrasound or MRI, could substitute.

20. Drop 10 pounds
Being overweight or obese accounts for 20% of all cancer deaths among women and 14% among men, notes the American Cancer Society. (You’re overweight if your body mass index is between 25 and 29.9; you’re obese if it’s 30 or more.) Plus, losing excess pounds reduces the body’s production of female hormones, which may protect against breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and ovarian cancer. Even if you’re not technically overweight, gaining just 10 pounds after the age of 30 increases your risk of developing breast, pancreatic, and cervical, among other cancers.

Worlds Are Created By Love / Foods That Increase Cancer Risk / Friday: Doss Cultural Center

“In the mind,
we doubt and suspect,
and we get a kind of pleasure,
a kind of joy from that.
But in the Heart,
we try to encompass the Full World,
and by Loving the World,
we get JOY.”

Sri Chinmoy

Now
quickly becomes
nevermore.

Time
is enfolded within
layers of illusion.
This moment,
this precious instant
in the swirling sea
of now and never,
then and ever,
can quickly become
nevermore.

The awareness of Self,
of being firmly rooted
in who we truly are,
can enable us
to see that everything around us,
is intensely
ALIVE.

And,
in your dynamic vision
of Life all around,
you discover
that YOU
are truly
alive.

Getting in touch
with your consciousness,
with the awareness inside,
can enable you
to experience true
Happiness.

My Dear Friends,
our perceptions become clouded.
They delude us.
But,
despite what our senses tell us,
we CAN
experience a profound sense
of inner peace
and JOY.

As many religious traditions
have always held,
the natural state of consciousness,
which pervades the entire Universe,
is total Bliss.
And getting into touch with
the clarity of pure consciousness
inside of us,
empowers us to experience
this JOY.
When we do this,
we experience
what is true happiness.

Where the center of your gravity lies.

Yes.
Taking the time
to slow down,
and reflect upon the true nature
of who you are,
and where the center
of your gravity lies,
can have a massively
therapeutic effect.

And
who am I?

My Friends,
the Universe is apparently filled
with particles and anti-particles
dancing into and out of
existence
billions of times
each second
.

Yes.

They disappear and reappear in reality.
But,
where do they go?
.
Quantum physicists now know
they “reappear.”
They appear, and then they disappear.
But,
different ones appear.

This fact,
that the particles
of which WE are made,
reappear and are always
different
when they reappear
,
conveys a simple and powerful
message:
we are all connected,
we are truly
one.

Consciousness Moves to Another Universe After Death.

This is much like
the air we breathe.
Each breath
is taken in and
released.
And a new and different breath of air,
with new and different particles,
is taken inside.
We share these particles
with every Living thing
on Earth.

“The third Universal Truth is
that ALL things
– seen and unseen –
are connected.
All things are different faces
of Consciousness.”
– 
Michael Brown

Quantum Theory Proves
That Consciousness Moves to Another Universe
After Death.

Consciousness exists outside
of the constraints of Time and Space.
It is able to be anywhere:
in the Human body and outside of it.
That fits well with the basic postulates
of quantum mechanics,

according to which a certain particle can be present
anywhere
and an event can happen
in several, sometimes countless, ways.
learning-mind.com

Oddly,
the more energetic our particles are,
the less time they exist.
They go back into the vast space and vacuum
from whence they came.

Outside of the constraints of Time.

Yes,
there is something very weird going on
in the, so-called, empty space
in our Universe.

To a physicist,
mass and energy are interchangeable.
This tells us
that YOU have an uncertainty in the energy,
of which you are made.
And the greater the uncertainty,
the shorter the time that you are uncertain
about whether particles even exists.

Particles constitute
the origin of all structure today.

So,
in a sense,
YOU,
yourself, are virtual particles
that have become real.

You see Folks,
we don’t really know
what we are
or
that we are
(if we really exist).

“You are becoming
The Song of your Heart.
How Beautiful it is.
As the Flower blossoms forth,
Feel the Earth in your toes.
Oh my child,
you’ll never know
What Tomorrow brings.
So sing, sing, sing.
Rise before the Morning Light.
Let your Soul take its flight.
God is with you
listening.
So sing, sing sing.”
Snatam Kaur and Peter Kater

Let’s wax Philosophical
for a moment.

As we journey through this Life,
we experience moments when it seems
we are not able to see any purpose
in the circumstance
in which we find ourselves.

But,
our Perpetual Creation
tells us that at every moment
the World is the way it is
because God Loves us,
and He perpetually Creates us
in His infinitely dynamic
and Loving Image.

This moment
was created
and brought into being
out of absolute nothingness
by a Loving
Creator.

            Faith leads us into the Light

Realizing
that we are far less than half-present,
knowing
that we have not had
a sense of being truly
where we are,
and who we are,
has left precious Life
in the dark.

But Faith,
leads us
into the Light,
the Light of
Love.

As we Pray,
and Meditate,
on the Beauty and Immensity
of our Universe,
we can come to
more fully realize,
that Worlds
are Created by Love.
And,
OUR World
can be recreated
by Love,
and by Love
alone.

“There can be Miracles
When you Believe.
Though Hope is frail
It’s hard to kill.
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe,
Somehow you will,
You will when you
Believe.”
Stephen Schwartz

          To everything there is a Season.

Have you
wept for LOVE?
Has a Loved one
wept
for you?

Perhaps,
it is now time
for weeping,
crying
for all the JOY
in Life.

“To everything
there is a Season.
A time to weep,
and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;
Ecclesiastes 3:4

 My Dear Friends,
we experience,
and are aware of,
only a very narrow
slice of Reality.
.
But Time alone
with God,
as you Pray
with all your Heart
to our Father
in Heaven above,
will broaden the
dimensions
in which you truly
dwell.

Goodnight.

Kahlil Gibran “When you are sorrowful
look again
in your Heart,

and you shall see that in Truth
you are weeping for that
which has been your
delight.”

Kahlil Gibran

………………….By Love alone.

“Our mind
is like a cloudy sky:

in essence clear and pure,
but overcast by clouds of delusions.
Just as the thickest clouds can disperse,
so, too, even the heaviest delusions
can be removed from our Mind.”

“Heaven and God
are not high above us, far away;

it is a plane of consciousness within us.
Seekers of the Eternal Truth
will realize their Eternal Heaven
within
their aspiring Hearts.

This year, more than 1 million Americans and more than 10 million people worldwide are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, a disease commonly believed to be preventable. Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle. The lifestyle factors include cigarette smoking, diet (fried foods, red meat), alcohol, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, infections, stress, obesity, and physical inactivity. The evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental pollutants etc.

Top 10 Foods That Increase Cancer Risk

Nearly 1.5 million new cases of cancer were expected to be diagnosed last year–while 559,650 people were expected to die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. That’s more than 1,500 people a day–such a startling statistic. In the book Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic (New Society Publishers, 2007) the authors write that the Number 4 solution is to “Eat a Healthy Diet.

Listed below are the 10 Foods and Drinks to Limit or Eliminate:

1. All charred food, which create heterocyclic aromatic amines, known carcinogens. Even dark toast is suspect.

2. Well-done red meat. Medium or rare is better, little or no red meat is best.

Be healthy.  –  Be LOVING.

3. Sugar, both white and brown – which is simply white sugar with molasses added. (See Care2′s Directory of Natural Sweeteners for great, healthy alternatives.)

4. Heavily salted, smoked and pickled foods, which lead to higher rates of stomach cancer.

5. Sodas/soft drinks, which pose health risks, both for what they contain–sugar and various additives
– and for what they replace in the diet
– beverages and foods that provide vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

6. French fries, chips and snack foods that contain trans fats.

7. Food and drink additives such as aspartame.

8. Excess alcohol.

9. Baked goods, for the acrylamide.

10. Farmed fish, which contains higher levels of toxins such as PCBs.

We Are Alive Forever / The Power of Pure Consciousness / Obesity May Double Risk Of Cancer / Friday: T. B. A.

We hear of
Miracles.
And there are
many.

My Dear Friend,
Miracles abound
with the simplicity
of knowing,
that everything
is a Miracle.

No.
We are never fully
aware,
that every Life
is a Miracle,
every day
is a Miracle,
and every moment
is truly Miraculous.

William Wordsworth
wrote in a poem that begins,
“The World is too much with us;
late and soon,
getting and spending,
we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature
that is ours.”

It is very hard
to reflect upon what is going on,
because demands for our time
and our energy
don’t diminish.

The beauty of God’s creation is everywhere.

And so,
we are seldom
in the moment.

Slowing down
is essential
and
requires the recognition
that it is important
to do so.

Finding a tranquil location,
perched along the banks of a soothing River
makes it easy to slow your pace
and discover the art
of relaxation.
Since the Beauty of God’s creation
is everywhere,
it isn’t necessary to travel
many miles
to behold it.

The wonders of our Father
in Heaven
abound all around us,
surround us,
are us.
And these marvels
reveal much about our
Creator.
His Beauty
is reflected
in His
Creations.

Yes,
it is reflected
in YOU.

To sense our consciousness,
just slow down
and take notice of the marvels
unfolding all around us.
To live in
WONDER,
focus your conscious thoughts,
your good intentions
and physical energy.

Get rid of the
negative emotion.
Our reality
is that everyone
is playing the game
of Life
at their own pace.

Escape to another Century,
with your intention of understanding
a totally other time
and place.
Slow your pace
and sustain your reading attention.
It is important that mom AND dad

of truly great literature
for their children.

Our shadows are cast by the same Light.

My Dear Friends,
the brevity
of our Being
dictates many things.
But
our brevity is
illusory.
Our constituent essence
exists lividly buried,
and forever alive,
within our DNA
and that of our inheritors,
our children,
and our children’s
children.
And,
more importantly,
we are alive forever
in the Spirit.

“For you have been born again,
but not to a Life that will quickly end.
Your new Life will last forever
because it comes from
the Eternal, Living Word
of God.”

1 Peter 1:23

The essence
of our Being
is truly designed,
Biologically and Spiritually,
to be alive
forever.

As every Flower
blossoms,
it soon fades away.
And Flowers teach us:
we each
have the capacity
to blossom,
and express
the Beauty of Love
to the whole World.

“Our Spiritual roots
are where our Life gets its nourishment.
It is our infinite source of the Love,
happiness, and serenity that we all deeply desire.
Through Spirituality we gain
an outlook that best benefits
our Life.

The Power of Pure Consciousness
by Steve Taylor
read more

Experiencing ‘consciousness-in-itself’ can have a massively therapeutic effect. It brings a sense of being firmly rooted in ourselves, of being truly who we are. We also have a sense of being truly where we are, realizing that before we were only half-present, and everything we see around us seems intensely real and alive, as if our perceptions have become much more acute. But above all, we experience a profound sense of inner peace and natural happiness. As the Hindu and Buddhist traditions have always held, the nature of consciousness-in-itself (which means the consciousness inside us and the consciousness which pervades the whole universe) is bliss. Getting into contact with the pure consciousness inside us enables us, therefore, to experience this bliss. Indeed, it could be said that it’s only when we do this that we can experience true happiness.

Obesity May Double Risk Of Colorectal Cancer
NDTV.COM
click here to read more

Women who are overweight or obese have up to twice the risk of developing colorectal cancer before age 50. The study published in the journal JAMA Oncology, said that it was it is of utmost importance for women to maintain a healthy weight, beginning in early adulthood for prevention of early-onset colorectal cancer.

Compared with women with the lowest body mass index (BMIs), 18.5-22.9 kilograms per square meter, women with the highest BMIs, greater than 30, had almost twice the risk of early-onset of colorectal cancer, Xinhua news agency reported.

“We hypothesised that the obesity epidemic may partially contribute to this national and global concern in early-onset colorectal cancer rates, but we were surprised by the strength of the link and the contribution of obesity and weight change since early adulthood,” said Yin Cao, Assistant Professor of surgery in the Division of Public Health Sciences at Washington University.

For the study, published in the journal JAMA Oncology, the team included data from 85,256 women aged 25 to 44.It must be understood that this is an association study, which does not establish that increasing weight is a cause of early-onset colorectal cancer. More studies are needed to uncover the causal relationship between the two and identify young people at high risk of colorectal cancer at younger ages.

The American Cancer Society recently lowered the recommended age at which most people should undergo a first screening colonoscopy. The new guidelines recommend screening beginning at age 45, down from the previous recommendation of age 50.

Obesity is a condition characterized by excessive body weight. Your diet can play a significant role in managing obesity. Here are some foods that are known for their fat burning abilities.

1. Tomato: Tomatoes encourage the production of the amino acid called Carnitine, which is an organic molecule that plays an important role in the regulation of fatty acid and energy metabolism. Tomatoes also have a compound known as 9-oxo-ODA that helps reduce lipids in blood, which further helps in preventing weight gain and belly fat.

2. Green Tea: Catechins are one of the antioxidants present in green tea which are believed to boost metabolism, further promoting weight loss.

3. Celery: Containing barely 16 calories per 100 grams (as per USDA), celery is ranked high among negative calorie foods. Packed with fiber, celery is also rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate.

4. Broccoli: Plant-based foods are high in fiber and great calorie burners. Containing barely 34 calories per 100 grams. Broccoli is ranked high amongst superfoods. It is packed with fibers and antioxidants and studies have shown that they may also have certain anti-cancer properties.

Living Is But One Dimension / Prevent Cancer in Your Home / Tuesday, Jan. 5 We Begin Again

There is so much more
To Life,
Than Life.

Amazing_Water_Lily_flower_beautiful

    There is more to what exists.

Living is but one
Dimension of existence.
It is a very narrow fragment.
Life is a very thin sliver
Of awareness,
Of who we are,
What we know,
What can be.

The Water Lily,
So fragile, delicate and beautiful,
Floats upon the surface
Of its reality,
Much like you and me,
Never knowing, unaware,
Of what lies beneath,
In the waters of Life,
Majestic, dark and deep.

ws_Water_Lilies_Pond_1920x1200

    This time is your true Treasure.

What lurks below
Is unknown,
And the distance
May be vast,
Much like the way
To what lies above,
To the infinity of stars,
Far beyond what
The Water Lily
filled with Life,
Or we,
May ever know.

And the narrow path forward,
Around and beyond,
Is the horizon,
The limit of what we see,
But not of what is,
Not what can be.

“There are more things
in Heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of
in our philosophy.”

– Hamlet, First Folio (1623),
by William Shakespeare

There is so much more
To what exists,
And whatever will be,
To what our minds can imagine,
Where we truly are,
Where we can go,
What we can see.

l

Fragile, delicate and beautiful, as are you and me.

My Friends,
The wind beneath
The wings of your longing
Can lift your Spirit
To heights so Heavenly,
Only dreams aspire,
Only Angels see.

lilies

There is so much more to Life.

For you are Lovingly made
Of Angelic Dust,
Formed within a Beautiful Dream,
By a God that deeply Loves you,
Knows your every desire,
Every need,
Every longing,
In every moment
To be.

Fragrant Water Lilies

The wings of your longing can lift your Spirit.

Rejoice,
My Dear Friends.
Take comfort in this brief moment
Made for you and me.
This time is your true Treasure,
God’s precious Gift beyond belief,
As you may come one day
To see.

“Surely a man goes about
as a shadow!

Surely for nothing
they are in turmoil.”

– Psalm 39:5-6

This time on Earth
Is all we have,
All we need,
To share who we are,
Be all we can be,
To Love so deeply
No one is left in need,
And Life is fulfilled
Beyond what we
Are able to see.

ground

The ground beneath your feet
Bears the weight of your Dignity.
Yes, it carries more than you and me.
For we walk upon this Sacred Soil
With our hopes and dreams,
The Sanctity of our Being,
Our wishes for all Humanity,
The Destiny of our deep desires,
The discovery of our Divinity.

Across the great divide
Of fear and doubt,
Lies this Sacred Land
Found only in dreams.
And as Spirits soar
In our search for
Everlasting Love,
We discover our Home
In the Heart of One
We Adore.

    Welcome Home.

What we endeavor to see
Is far less than what we are.
We are so very much more
Than what we thought,
What we imagined,
What we dreamed
We could ever be.

When your longing for Love
Is carried gently
On the Wings of Prayer.
There
You will be.

Welcome Home.

From our friends at the Underground Health Reporter:
Prevent Cancer in Your Home in 6 Easy Steps

Read more

cancer-prevention-266x300

There are many steps you can take –
in your home, your lifestyle and your body –
to drastically reduce your lifetime cancer risk.

Hey folks,
This is easy!
It is just common sense.

Toxic cleaning products
in your home drastically increase your cancer risk –
especially BREAST cancer risk for the females
who tend to use them most often.

Women have been shown to absorb
as much as FIVE pounds of toxins
through the skin each year.

Do we have your attention
YET?

We are destroying our immune system’s
ability to fight germs and infection
by overwhelming our environment
with antibacterial products.

The BEST product to use
for general household cleaning is
(GRIP YOUR KEYBOARD TIGHTLY –
HERE IT COMES):

simple soap and water.

Hey, it gets even easier.

Choose Organic

We have known how dangerous
pesticides are for decades.
By choosing organically grown vegetables
and organically raised animal products
you limit your amount of exposure.

This is especially important
when it comes to “soft” fruits and vegetables
– such as peaches and tomatoes –
that absorb more insecticides and chemicals
than thicker-skinned varieties.

If you think ORGANIC is more expensive –
try a month in the hospital.
Pay that bill,
then look forward to going home
to slowly and painfully
die.

Come on folks,
wake up!
How simple do you want
me to say it.

I Love You.

And yes,
that is reason enough
to hit you between the eyes
with the truth!

The chemicals used in dry cleaning
have been linked to several forms of cancer.

So before you drop off your clothing,
and that of your loved ones,
at the dry cleaners,
THINK
Do I really want to die in this way?

Yes,
My friends.
It is that simple.

Please read more.
cancerAnd in an update of December 17, 2015:
Cancer is overwhelmingly
a result of environmental factors.
The new study, in the journal Nature,
used four approaches to conclude
only 10-30% of cancers were down
to the way the body naturally functions

A few minutes of reading,
coupled with a relatively small dose
of common sense,
can prevent a horrible death.
And I do mean
horrible.

I have lost so very many loved ones,
including my precious Mother, Marie,
friends, neighbors, a deeply loved student,
Aaron Rivera,
fellow teachers I truly admired and loved
and so many others to this horrible
and preventable malady.

The thought of losing
you
I cannot bear.

And now,
I simply must close.
I cannot see through
the tears.

R. J. (Rosie Junior) celebrated his second birthday on Dec. 26. He received many gifts from Ian, Dr. A. and others. But his Love is the greatest gift of all. I am afraid not to Love him. He could devour me in one gulp for dessert. And then, all that would be left is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . burp!

They Are But Three / If Good Men Do Nothing / Movie: Theory of Everything

 There is only one happiness in life,
to love and be loved.
– George Sand

I Love You

Life has taught us that Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward, together in the same direction. – Antoine de Saint-Expurey

“I Love You”
Are but three,
You, what you dream,
And what you see.

They say something much more
Than they say,
And harbor within
A world you cannot contain.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life:     that word is Love.                         – Sophocles

They are not words,
Oh, Keeper of the Keys.
They are the secrets
That unlock the doors
To hearts in every place,
In every space.

And they are but three.
And they are but yours.
Yours to share,
Yours in Prayer,
To climb three stairs,
To Love so sublime.
They are a poem
In life’s rhyme
,

All in rhythm
With Celestial Time.

Noah turns 13.

Congratulations to Noah    who turned 13.

Three simple sounds
To say what God feels
For you, and for me,
Today, not never,
Now and forever.

You cannot truly know
What you cannot feel.
And feeling not
Conveys less than you are.
And you are all the world
To someone in need,
Who, hearing nothing,
Feels not the beat
Of your heart,
Or his own.

020They are but three
Harbingers of freedom.
They open the wounds
Of a lonely heart,
To feeling,
To healing,
To Loving again.

You can share this love,
This moment.
You, and you alone
Can feel the way,
Convey your Love for another
On a special day,
This day,
Father, Mother, Sister, Brother,
Beloved of another.

We have two new friends.

We have two new friends.

Your life is a Prayer,
Your Love, always there,
To discover,
To give,
To share.

What in the name of All
That resides in
Heaven Above

Are you waiting for?

  More pain in life?

According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece left on the table.

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece on the table.

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies –
and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

  1. The food you eat…

We enjoyed a Holiday lunch with David & Amy Smelley

We enjoyed a Holiday lunch with David & Amy Smelley. Thank you!

2. the air you breathe…
3. the clothes you wear…
4. the water you drink…
5. personal care products you use…
6. medications you take…
7. the water you bathe in
8. virtually everything you consume, and
9. everything you do –
10. or are exposed to –
causes cancer these days!

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in 
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

      • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
      • Genetically modified food
      • Most laundry detergents
      • Commercial hair dyes

Lunch 2

       It was delicious!

        • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein)
      • Granite counter-tops (which emit radon)
      • Rancid peanuts and seeds
      • Canola oil
      • Canned tomatoes

We were in the mood to celebrate.

      • Food laced with pesticides
      • Chemicals from aerosol cans
      • Mammograms
      • X-Rays
        • Food microwaved in plastic containers (including plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)

    •Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.

    A great time was had by all.

    A great time was had by all.

    My friends, until we start electing people to represent us, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and loving people to represent us.Frankly, these individuals need to love us more than they love themselves.

    It was a delightful time.

    It was a delightful time.

    These loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous heart of this Nation, there is no hope. Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

    And yes, it is a cancer of the heart, our heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
    is that good men do nothing.”
    Edmund Burke
