The Heart of What We Seek / China’s Chili Products Contain Cancer-causing Chemical / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Preparation)

The deep plight of our Human condition
results from being so starved
from experiencing unconditional Love,
that we become emotionally and physically and Spiritually
ill.

We have all known someone
so completely deprived of Love 
that they gave up
on Life.

Unconditional Love
is at the Heart
of what we seek
throughout our brief lives.

Without such Love,
many studies have shown us
that infants, children and adults
develop severe cognitive and psychological dysfunction
or die.

 We simply MUST
find the pathway to unconditional Love.
Without it,
we will surely wither away.
Like the beautiful and precious plants
that do not receive
the Love of the Sun,
we become starved
and can no longer
survive.

Love
is the Light.

Such Love
is essential for our health.
And it is essential for our Spiritual well being.
Love is the goal of Life,
and God’s Beauty is the path
that leads to it.
Such Beauty
lies within
and all around.

               God’s Beauty is the path.

We all carry
the source of unconditional Love
deep within.
But if we fail

to keep feeling
this Love,
for ourselves and for others,
we simply wither away.
For Love without condition,
touches the deepest, most tender corner
of our Human Hearts.
And this Love
leads us to very Heart
of God.

Marianne Williamson “How odd that we spend so much time
treating the darkness,
and so little time seeking the Light.
We only get rid of darkness
by turning on the Light.”
Marianne Williamson, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment

Look for Beauty in our actions,
in what we do in our daily lives.
Enact the Beauty that we Love.
Find a deep sense of meaning,
Beauty beyond belief,
in unconditional Love,
and in Prayer.

Regardless
of what someone says or thinks or feels or does
or believes,
still Love them,
and Love them unconditionally.
Love other beautiful Creations such as the animals,
and Love your thoughts and dreams.
Love
yourself.

                 Beauty beyond belief.

Yes,
unconditional Love
can be found and felt
for ourselves.
The more we are able to Love ourselves,

the more we are able to Love others.
.
“When you accept yourself,
the whole world accepts
you.”

Lao Tzu

My Dear Friends,
unconditional Love
is the most healing force
in the Universe.
And please know
that what we Love,
we find Beautiful.

Unconditional Love
is the only thing in the entire Universe
that can enable and empower you
to experience the true joy
and peace
we so long for.
.
There are many ways

to find a deep sense of meaning
in the Beauty and the Love
that abounds all around.
One path

is to recognize the Beauty
in everyone,
and in everything.

                    What we Love, we find Beautiful.

The Holy Bible
tells us of the central role
that Love plays in our lives.
The description of God Himself is
that “God is Love”.
(1 John 4:16)
And
we are called upon
throughout His Precious Holy Word
to become perfected
in the Love of God.

My Friends,
we have Children to Bless,
wrongs to right,
Truth
to share and defend,
and Lives to devote
to others.

And
little time left
to do so.

Goodnight.

                Love other beautiful Creations.

China’s Chili Products Contain Cancer-causing Chemical

by VR Sreeraman on General Health News

A trade watchdog in China has detected a cancer-causing industrial dye in chili paste and red chili power products.
 China’s Chili Products Contain Cancer-causing Chemical

Several supermarkets and factories in Hunan province have been punished for selling and producing the products dyed with chemical compound Rhodamine B, a banned food additive.

The Changsha Industrial and Commercial Bureau revoked the license of a company while a dealer was fined tens of thousands of yuan, the Shanghai Daily reported.

The dye was added in order to improve the appearance of the products.

Hunan cuisine is known for being dry-hot, as distinct from the numbing-hot flavors of Sichuan cuisine. However, both provinces have been hit by the dyed pepper scandal.

Rhodamine B was first detected in hotpot seasonings in Chongqing in March 2011.

We Flow From The Shadow / Foods You Should Just Never Eat / Friday: Playful Corp. in McKinney

Moments have wings
and
one by one
they all fly
away.

As we journey
on,
we search for a place
in Love’s fragile Heart,
where we
belong.
But the ebb and flow
of emotions deep and wide,
like the Ocean’s
tide,
caress
every line of every shore
we come to Love
and adore.

Love is meant
to be.
Just as eyes
were meant
to see.
Just as
a pure river of water
flows
through you and me,
a Pure River
of Love
flows from God
to every one on
Earth,
to each of us,
to the individual,
and the collective
we.
.
In the time
we have so little of,
we cannot describe
the Light of the Sun
that opens up
our Eyes,
or the Light of Love
that opens
the Human Heart.

Can we see
Love?
Can we see
Hope?
No.
Our brick walls
are made of flesh.
Nothing we have
is real
without the Heart
giving cause
to the mind.

From the chaos
of Life and living
we are coming
into view.
We may
put to rest
the body,
but we can
never
bury the Heart
and all the Blessed Love
it brought into
Being.

Tomorrow
is made with the Light
that heals the Heart
with Love.

We cannot describe the Light.

Only Love,
for ourselves and
for others,
helps us understand
who we are
and why
we come into
the Blessed Light of
Life.

We flow
from the shadow
of now,
into a form
of what will
be.

Everything in
Nature,
everything in you
and me,
can be translated
and transcended.
The walls
that house
Dreams
are what they
contain.

  “The most precious Light Mehmet Murat ildan
is the one that visits you
  in your darkest hour!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

.
The moment
left to itself,
will begat nothing
but this
moment.
It does not
lead to the next,
but to what is
left
of this moment.

The caterpillar does not become a butterfly by telling everybody it has wings. It buries itself in darkness and grows wings.

Unless,
the Love of God
enter
into your Being,
you will never
say,
“I am
no longer
who I am.”

Goodnight.

  “These Magnificent Beings of Light
are all around,Rhonda Byrne
 emanating the energy of Love.
  Seeing them,
feeling their Love, 
gets me through
Life’s most challenging moments.”
Rhonda Byrne

A few months back, a website called Trueactivist.com (a sort of news aggregator with an activist flavor) published a list of nine foods you should never eat again if you care at all about your long-term health. Each of the nine foods mentioned ranged from the somewhat surprising to the “I stopped eating that crap years ago” category. Here is what was on that list:

White Bread, Refined Flours
Conventional Frozen Meals
White Rice
Microwaveable Popcorn
Cured Meat Products with Nitrates
Most Conventional Protein Bars
Margarine
Soy Milk and Soy-Based Meat Substitutes
Diet Anything

Each of these listed above were accompanied by a paragraph explaining how toxic they are, or how nutritionally vacant they may be. But this got me thinking…only nine foods? Off the top of my head I could think of at least ten more, including Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino. But beyond such specifics, I wanted to add an additional eleven to make an even-numbered list of 20 forbidden foods. These were all selected on account that they are bad for your health and offer little in return. I skipped over items that were just poorly managed, unsustainable, or just plain bad for the environment (that could easily be another list of fifty or more). So here goes:

Conventionally Grown Berries (due to the abundance of pesticides used)
Deep Fried Foods (due to the fact that they are loaded with saturated fat)
Conventional Fruit-Flavored Yogurt (loaded with more sugar than many sodas)
Pop Tarts (loaded with fat and sugar)
Vitamin Water (also loaded with tons of sugar)
Mayonnaise (just too much fat)
Store-Bought Muffins (loaded with fat and sugar)
White Pasta (lacking any real nutrition)
Canned Tomatoes or Tomato Sauce (the acid of the tomatoes leaches BPA from the can)
Artificial Sweeteners (They can increase your appetite and create severely adverse health effects)
Conventionally Produced Meat (too many reasons to list)

And there is a lot more where that came from. What else can or would you add to this list? Is there anything you think has been unfairly demonized?

Curing Ignorance Through the Infallible Word of God / Friday: At School again for Shakespeare Play Preparation

We are surrounded by
vast and empty spaces
of Nothing.
Great and grand

voids.
And wherever we go,

we have no idea
what we’re not seeing.

It is the same
for us.

Yes,
the Universe
does not reveal
everything it is hiding,
and that includes
a great reservoir of secrets.

All the stars and planets and moons
and great clouds of dust we can see
are a tiny percentage
of what is really there.

Almost all of the Universe
is made of “dark” matter
that neither emits nor absorbs light.
Roughly 70% of our Universe

is made of dark energy.

And dark matter makes up about 25%.
The rest – everything on Earth,
everything ever observed,
all of what we call “normal” matter
adds up to less than 5% of the known Universe.
So most of what is happening
in the Universe
appears to be
nothing.

And,
it is hiding
in plain sight.

It is the same
for us.

97 Percent of Our DNA
Has a Higher Unknown Purpose.

Yes,
WE Human Beings have found out
and now realize that 97% of our DNA
has a Higher purpose
and the information will lead us
into a scientific and Spiritual
renaissance.

Stephen Quake, professor in the school of engineering and professor of bioengineering

Nathan Collins reports in the Stanford News
that a new survey of DNA fragments
circulating in human blood suggests our bodies
contain vastly more diverse microbes
than anyone previously understood.

What’s more,
the overwhelming majority of those microbes
have never been seen before,
let alone classified and named, Stanford researchers report August 22
in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The Stanford study indicates that more than 99 percent of the microbes inside us are unknown to science.

A survey of DNA fragments circulating in the blood suggests the microbes living within us are vastly more diverse than previously known. In fact,99 percent of that DNA has never been seen before.

“We found the gamut,” said Stephen Quake, a professor of Bioengineering and applied physics, a member of Stanford Bio-X
and the paper’s senior author.
“We found things that are related to things people have seen before, we found things that are divergent,
and we found things that are completely novel.”

But there was something else, too – something weirder.
Of all the non-human DNA fragments the team gathered,
99 percent of them failed to match anything in existing genetic databases the researchers examined.

My Dear Friends,
inside each discovery of our LACK of knowledge
is a longing to find out more.
And a long-term, ever-deepening
awareness
of the vast unknown
Beauty and Miraculous Nature
of the Beings that we are.

In fact,
we are such mysterious Creations,
that scientists have finally proven
that our DNA has Telepathic abilities.
Scientists now believe that DNA
might have the ability to communicate with other DNA
at a distance
which if true would be like telepathy
because the cells are communicating non-verbally.

No,
we don’t know what gravitational fields look like,
what dark matter looks like,
what quantum foam looks like,
what constitutes the Universe
or US,
or what, is in fact,
REAL.
But what scientists are telling us, in different ways,
is that if we pay very close attention,
sometimes what looks like Nothing
is the best place to find the most interesting
something.

Let us pay attention
to what God says
we are:

These Truths are in Scripture.
And they are right there
on the pages of the Holy Bible
in black and white
about who I am,
and who YOU are,
as a Child of God.

Yes,
God can begin for YOU
a new understanding
about everything
and speak to your precious Heart.

Here
is some of what HE
says:

You are chosen.

You are Dearly Loved.

You are Holy.

You are a Saint.

You are free from condemnation through Christ’s death.

You have the mind of Christ.

You can do all things through Christ.

These verses
My Dear Friend,
are the infallible Word of God.

Here is a list of biblical affirmations
about our identity
derived from a few selected passages
in the New Testament.
This is just a portion of the many Truths
about who we are
and have become through faith in God,
It is a powerful inventory
to review from time to time.

• I am a child of God.

But to all who have received him–those who believe in his name–he has given the right to become God’s children … (John 1:12).

• I am a branch of the true vine, and a conduit of Christ’s life.

I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me–and I in him–bears much fruit, because apart from me you can accomplish nothing (John 15:1, 5).

• I am a friend of Jesus.

I no longer call you slaves, because the slave does not understand what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because I have revealed to you everything I heard from my Father (John 15:15).

• I have been justified and redeemed.

But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).

• My old self was crucified with Christ, and I am no longer a slave to sin.

We know that our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin (Romans 6:6).

• I will not be condemned by God.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).

• I have been set free from the law of sin and death.

For the law of the life-giving Spirit in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).

• As a child of God, I am a fellow heir with Christ.

And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ)–if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him (Romans 8:17).

• I have been accepted by Christ.

Receive one another, then, just as Christ also received you, to God’s glory (Romans 15:7).

• I have been called to be a saint.

… To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, and called to be saints, with all those in every place who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours (1 Corinthians 1:2). (See also Ephesians 1:1, Philippians 1:1, and Colossians 1:2.)

• In Christ Jesus, I have wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.

He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption … (1 Corinthians 1:30).

• My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who dwells in me.

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you (1 Corinthians 6:19)

• I am joined to the Lord and am one spirit with Him.

But the one united with the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17).

• God leads me in the triumph and knowledge of Christ.

But thanks be to God who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and who makes known through us the fragrance that consists of the knowledge of him in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14).

• The hardening of my mind has been removed in Christ.

But their minds were closed. For to this very day, the same veil remains when they hear the old covenant read./netbible2/index.php?header=&book=2co&chapter=3 It has not been removed because only in Christ is it taken away (2 Corinthians 3:14).

• I am a new creature in Christ.

So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away–look, what is new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17)!

• I have become the righteousness of God in Christ.

God made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we would become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).

• I have been made one with all who are in Christ Jesus.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female–for all of you are one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28).

• I am no longer a slave, but a child and an heir.

So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son, then you are also an heir through God (Galatians 4:7).

• I have been set free in Christ.

For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1).

• I have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.

Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ (Ephesians 1:3).

• I am chosen, holy, and blameless before God.

For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in his sight in love (Ephesians 1:4).

• I am redeemed and forgiven by the grace of Christ.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace (Ephesians 1:7).

• I have been predestined by God to obtain an inheritance.

In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11).

• I have been sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation)–when you believed in Christ–you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13).

• Because of God’s mercy and love, I have been made alive with Christ.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you are saved (Ephesians 2:4-5)!

• I am seated in the heavenly places with Christ.

… And he raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus … (Ephesians 2:6).

• I am God’s workmanship created to produce good works.

For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them (Ephesians 2:10).

• I have been brought near to God by the blood of Christ.

But now in Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ (Ephesians 2:13).

• I am a member of Christ’s body and a partaker of His promise.

… The Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 3:6). (See also Ephesians 5:30.)

• I have boldness and confident access to God through faith in Christ.

… In whom we have boldness and confident access to God because of Christ’s faithfulness (Ephesians 3:12).

• My new self is righteous and holy.

… Put on the new man who has been created in God’s image–in righteousness and holiness that comes from truth (Ephesians 4:24).

• I was formerly darkness, but now I am light in the Lord.

… For you were at one time darkness, but now you are/netbible2/index.php?header=&book=eph&chapter=5 light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light (Ephesians 5:8).

• I am a citizen of heaven.

But our citizenship is in heaven–and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ … (Philippians 3:20).

• The peace of God guards my heart and mind.

And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).

• God supplies all my needs.

And my God will supply your every need according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

• I have been made complete in Christ.

… You have been filled in him, who is the head over every ruler and authority (Colossians 2:10).

• I have been raised up with Christ.

Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1).

• My life is hidden with Christ in God.

… For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).

• Christ is my life, and I will be revealed with Him in glory.

When Christ (who is your life) appears, then you too will be revealed in glory with him (Colossians 3:4).

• I have been chosen of God, and I am holy and beloved.

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience … (Colossians 3:12).

• God loves me and has chosen me.

We know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you … (1 Thessalonians 1:4).

The more we embrace these truths from Scripture about who we have become in Christ, the more stable, grateful, and fully assured we will be in this world.

Goodnight.

anything.”

Hope Has A Place / MORE Cancer Supplements, Herbs, Vitamins, Diet and Foods / Friday: Rollerland West

Many times
have we Prayed
with Hope in our Hearts,
that someone would hear
our song of frail desire
to be within reach
of all that
we aspire,
to be
or not to be.

Unlike the beautiful birds
of late Summer,
that too swiftly have flown away,
we are still here,
day by day,
looking up
with Hearts so full of Hope,
and speaking words
we thought we would never
say.

We barely understand.
There is
NO smile
on this planet
that can engender more
JOY
than yours.
The arms
that embrace those
you LOVE
send electric shocks
to the precious Souls
that are so dear,
that you hold so
near.

The Islands
of your eyes
may speak to
everyone.
And when they do,
you are not
alone.
And
when they are closed,
the dreamer
will not be
alone.

Is there
a sweeter song
than from the bird
in a tree.
Is there
a deeper Love
than God’s Love
for you
and me.
Listen
to the Nightingale’s beautiful
advice:
Without Love
we truly suffer
from the
Great Alone.

    Beautiful advice.

“One look at love and you may see,
it weaves a web over mystery.
All raveled treads can rend apart,
for hope has a place in a lovers heart.

Whispering words, a sigh of sighs.
the ebb and the flow of the ocean tides.
One breath, one word, may end or may start,
a hope in a place of a lovers heart.

Look to love, and you may dream.
But if it should leave then give it wings.
But if such a love is meant to be,
hope is home
and the heart is free.

Under the heavens, we journey far.
On roads of life,
we’re the wonderers.
So let love rise,
so let love depart,
let hope have a place
in the lovers heart,

hope has a place
in the lovers heart.”

I am free because
I am not the body.
I am free because I am the Soul-bird
That flies in Infinity-Sky.
I am the Soul-child that dreams
On the Lap of the Immortal
King Supreme.”

Cancer supplements, herbs, vitamins,
diet and foods, what to eat

Natural and alternative ways to prevent and treat,
or to slow down its progression

by Ray Sahelian, M.D.

Do not feel guilty if you get cancer.

No matter how well we eat or how healthy our lifestyle, there are still factors outside of our control that can cause cancers to occur including genetics, heredity, and unknown or unpredictable environmental factors.

Do not rely on natural medicine alone if you have cancer.
Modern medicine has made many advances in the treatment of cancer. Although there is a tendency to seek alternative treatments, this should not be done by abandoning all that modern science offers.

   Anti cancer diet and foods,
what to eat and what not to eat.


Cancer risk is heavily influenced by extrinsic factors with only 10-30 percent of cancers down to intrinsic risk factors such as mutations. And food choices are an important way to alter the risk. No single food can prevent cancer, but the right combination of foods can reduce the risk.

There are a variety of ways foods can prevent, slow down, or fight this disease. Genetic differences in taste preference, food tolerance, and nutrient absorption and metabolism all influence the effect of diet on cancer risk. Some foods block natural bodily processes such as inflammation that stimulated cancer growth. Other foods influence cancer cells to die through a process called apoptosis. Still other foods help the body in detoxifying cancer-causing toxins or protecting against free radicals. Colorful vegetables and herbs are at the top of the list of anti cancer foods. Colorful berries are also excellent. Some of the most promising dietary chemopreventive agents are green tea polyphenols (i.e. catechins), long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, carotenoids, glucosinolates / isothiocyanates, vitamins (i.e. vitamin D and folate).

Quantitative association between body mass index and the risk of cancer: A global Meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies. Higher body weight is usually associated with a higher risk for cancer. It makes sense to lose weight, or east less, in order to reduce the risk from several types of cancers.

Reduce your risk naturally.
Try to get a deep sleep at night.

Eat a healthy diet with few processed foods, and more vegetables, preferably organic. Reduce the amount of food cooked at very high temperatures. Try to maintain an appropriate body weight, losing excess pounds can reduce your risk. Many vegetables have anti-tumor activity, for instance broccoli, cauliflower and watercress.

Cruciferous Vegetables, Isothiocyanates, and Bladder Cancer Prevention. Overall, both cell and animal studies support a potential role for isothiocyanates in bladder cancer prevention and treatment.

The World Health Organization warns that processed meats – including bacon, hot dogs and sausagescan cause colon cancer.

People who consume a lot of processed carbohydrates – think snack foods and sweets – and sugary drinks face heightened risks of breast, prostate and other cancers. Substitute stevia, the no calorie natural sweetener.

People who eat more highly processed foods such as mass processed packaged bread and baked goods, chicken nuggets, frozen or shelf stable ready meals, food products made mostly from oils, fats, sugars, and instant noodles have a higher risk of cancer.

Omega-3 fatty acids from fish have a stronger effect than flaxseed and other oils when it comes to cancer prevention.

Avoid eating at least 3 hours before bed.

Eat more onions and garlic.

Of course, reduce or eliminate smoking and excessive alcohol drinking. Try to have no more than one drink of alcohol per day.
Minimize exposure to toxins.

Walk your way to wellness – By keeping your body healthy and active, walking can help you improve your mood, boost your energy, lose weight, control your blood pressure, prevent bone loss, and decrease the risks of many diseases, including cancer.

Everyone needs fats. Problems arise only when we get too much fat, or the wrong types of fat, such as trans fats and hydrogenated fats, and excess fat from dairy products and meats. Fat has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease as well as an increased exposure to certain forms of cancer.

Weigh less, live longer – Being overweight seems to play a role in cancers of the breast, colon and the lining of the uterus. Cancers of the prostate occur more often in obese men and cancers of the gall bladder, bile passages and ovaries occur more often in obese women. Fasting may reduce cancer rates according to one animal study.

Obese women have a higher risk for cancer than thinner women particularly cancers of the bowel, gallbladder, uterus, kidney, pancreas and esophagus, as well as post-menopausal breast cancers.

Seek shade, not sun – A tan is a sign of skin damage! It is a scientific fact that overexposure to the sun damages skin, causing cumulative, permanent harm, including (but not limited to) skin cancer.

Finding Fiber – Research has shown that eating more foods containing fiber can lower your risk of two fairly common, potentially fatal cancers: colon and prostate cancer. Because foods with fiber are naturally low in fat, they also protect you against other types of cancer to which a high-fat diet may contribute.

Drink tea rather than sodas or sugared drinks – Solid evidence is mounting that drinking tea can prevent cell damage that leads to cancer, heart disease and perhaps other ills. Tea is loaded with phytochemicals–a wide range of molecules that can act as antioxidants. Such compounds counteract the damage done to DNA cells by free radicals–charged particles produced by sunlight, chemicals, many foods and simply the stress of day-to-day living.

Cancer supplements, herbs, vitamins,  plant extracts with potential anti cancer activity

There are countless herbs that have been found to have anti-tumor activity in laboratory studies. Whether these herbs and dietary supplement have a role to play in cancer treatment or prevention in humans is not clear at this time. Even if they do, the appropriate dosage and best way to use them is not well known. However, if your doctor approves, you could try some of these herbal and nutritional supplements.

There are numerous reports of cancer preventive activity of dietary botanicals, including cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and broccoli, allium vegetables such as garlic and onion, green tea, citrus fruits, soybeans, berries, and ginger, as well as medicinal plants. Several compounds, such as genistein (from soybeans), lycopene (from tomatoes), brassinin (from cruciferous vegetables), sulforaphane (from asparagus), indole-3-carbinol (from broccoli), and resveratrol (from grapes) are being tested.

Amla herb has polyphenols and tannins with anti-cancer activities.

Berries and berry extracts such as acai, black or red raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, noni, and wolfberry have numerous anticancer compounds.

Broccoli vegetable and broccoli sprout extract are excellent options.

Carnosine supplementation
Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, and Genomic Stability Enhancement Effects of Zinc l-carnosine: A Potential Cancer Chemopreventive Agent?

Chrysin flavonoid is beginning to be studied with good potential. In rodents it can reduce testosterone induced prostate enlargement.

Curcumin may help fight bladder, breast, colon, prostate, and other forms of cancer. Researchers have found in the lab that curcumin can enhance the cancer-fighting power of treatment with TRAIL, a naturally occurring molecule that helps kill cancer cells. TRAIL stands for tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand. In an experiment with human prostate cancer cells in a laboratory dish, the combination treatment killed off two to three times more cells than either treatment alone. Curcumin exerts multiple different suppressive effects on human breast carcinoma cells in vitro.

Carotenoids show a prominent role in decreasing the incidence of various cancers.

Vitamin D has an important role to play in prevention. Cancer rates are different at different latitudes of the globe. Rates of breast, colon and ovarian cancer are lower in sunnier regions of the world than in Northern climates where cold winters limit people’s sun exposure. Sunlight triggers the synthesis of vitamin D in the skin, and people who get little sun exposure tend to have lower stores of the vitamin. More than three-fourths of people with a variety of cancers have low levels of vitamin D, and the lowest levels are associated with more advanced cancers.

Vitamin E is of benefit, particularly the natural form complex as opposed to synthetic vitamin E.

Goji berry could be of benefit, but human studies are lacking.

Green Tea has polyphenolic compounds such as EGCG that are protective against various forms of cancer.

Graviola fruit, also known as soursop, grows in the Amazon jungle and some of the Caribbean islands. See graviola cancer latest research, a web site that is updated regularly.

AHCC — Active Hexose-correlated Compound — is a mushroom extract that has been tested as an immune enhancing, liver protective and anti-cancer agent.

Ashwagandha has many compounds that have been found to have activity against lung, colon, breast, and central nervous system tumors.

Calcium D Glucarate is a natural supplement.

Cat’s Claw extracts exert a direct anti-proliferative activity on MCF7 breast cancer cell lines. Cats-Claw supplements can improve quality of life in those with advanced tumors.

DIM-Diindolylmethane supplement is another good option.

Indole 3 Carbinol is available as a supplement.

Mangosteen has powerful xanthones. As of 2017, I am not aware of human studies with mangosteen in the prevention or treatment of cancer.

Milk thistle contains silymarin and other flavonoids that have been found to have anti-tumor action in bladder and prostate cancer cells.

Noni fruit juice contains a polysaccharide-rich substance called Noni-ppt with anti-tumor activity.

Reishi mushroom water soluble extracts inhibit colon tumors in mice. Reishi may be helpful in advanced-stage cancers and has shown activity against prostate cancer cells.

Agaricus mushroom has been studied as a mushroom extract cancer treatment with good early results.

Resveratrol shows promise in neuroblastoma and breast cancer.
Integr Cancer Ther. 2014. Efficacy of Antioxidants as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in Combination With the Chemotherapeutic Agent Doxorubicin. Resveratrol and curcumin have the potential to be clinically applied to prevent cardiac toxicity and hand-foot syndrome and enhance the anticancer efficiency of Doxorubicin.

Maitake mushroom is often used in Japan

Calcium mineral has been associated with a lower risk of colon cancer, so has vitamin D.

IP-6, Inositol hexaphosphate, is a naturally polyphosphorylated carbohydrate found in beans, brown rice, corn, sesame seeds, wheat bran, and other high fiber foods. IP-6 has been reported to have in vivo and in vitro anticancer activity against numerous tumors, such as colon, prostate, breast, liver, chronic myeloid leukemia, and rhabdomyosarcomas. Significant human trials are lacking and hence we do not currently know whether taking IP-6 supplements is helpful in cancer prevention or therapy.

Melatonin, a pineal hormone, is a potent antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit estrogen-responsive human breast cancer cells and augment the effectiveness of tamoxifen.

Can one integrate anti-caner herbs with cancer medications / chemotherapy drugs? Do herbs — such as graviola, mangosteen, mushroom extracts. — enhance the immune system while taking cancer drugs?

A. There are multiple forms of cancers — in different stages of growth and metastasis — and there are numerous chemo drugs that are prescribed (in different dosages), and countless herbs that have anti-cancer potential. Little research has been published regarding their interactions and whether they would help or harm when combined. Therefore it is nearly impossible to make any definitive statements. Making it even more difficult to predict is the timing of the herbal use with chemo drugs, and each person’s individual and unique response along with the influence of weight, smoking, alcohol use, diet, exercise, sleep habits, etc. Cancer prevention or treatment with herbal medicines is an area that has a lot of potential for exploration.

Supplements that may be helpful for those on chemotherapy
Carnitine improves fatigue in those who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
Glutamine supplementation can lessen loss of protein in the muscle and protect immune and gut-barrier function during radio-chemotherapy in patients with advanced cancer.
Glutamine supplement may also be helpful for mucositis induced by cancer treatment.
SAM-e may have a protective effect in cancer chemotherapy-induced liver toxicity, do not use more than 100 mg a day.

CoQ10
Improved survival in patients with end-stage cancer treated with coenzyme Q10 and other antioxidants: a pilot study.
J Int Med Res. 2010.
This pilot study evaluated the survival of patients with end-stage cancer who received supplements of coenzyme Q10 and a mixture of other antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C, selenium, folic acid and beta-carotene). During a period of 9 years, 41 patients who had end-stage cancer were included. Primary cancers were located in the breast, brain, lungs, kidneys, pancreas, esophagus, stomach, colon, prostate, ovaries and skin. The median actual survival was 40% longer than the median predicted survival.

Additional Herbs and compounds
Celery seed extract
D Glucarate supplement

Indole-3-carbinol supplement
Mistletoe herb
Morinda citrifolia extract
S
ulforaphane, found in broccoli and Brussels sprouts, slows the growth of human breast cancer cells in the lab. It disrupts the action of protein ‘microtubules’ within the cells, which are vital for the success of cell division. It also has effects on detoxification enzymes that can defend against cancer-promoting substances.
Vitamin K supplement

Tongkat ali — Beta-carboline alkaloids isolated from tongkat ali have demonstrated significant cytotoxicity against human lung cancer (A-549) and human breast cancer (MCF-7) cell lines. In plain English, this means that some compounds in this plant can kill cancer cells. The practical significance of this finding in humans is not clear at this time.

Supplements used for radiation therapy
Aloe vera gel may be helpful for skin damage as a consequence of radiation therapy.

Natural cancer treatments worth trying
Yoga, hypnosis, meditation, biofeedback, imagery, and support groups can help ease the anxiety and post-chemo or radiation treatment consequences. Different vitamins and other micronutrients in vegetables, fruits, and other natural plant products may prevent cancer development (carcinogenesis) by interfering with detrimental actions of mutagens, carcinogens, and tumor promoters. There’s a lot of controversy surrounding alternative treatments, and more research is needed before we have more confidence in these approaches.

Fasting before chemo
Enhanced Therapeutic Efficacy in Cancer Patients by Short-term Fasting: The Autophagy Connection. Preclinical studies suggest that fasting prior to chemotherapy may be a good strategy to protect patients against the side effects of chemotherapy and it could sensitize cancer cells to chemotherapy. Fasting results in a decrease of circulating growth factors which prompt normal cells to redirect energy toward cell maintenance and repair processes, rather than growth and proliferation. Fasting is also known to upregulate autophagy, an evolutionarily conserved catabolic process that is upregulated in response to various cell stressors.

Factors that cause cancer
Diet and speed of growth as a child are both significant causes of cancer, but many Americans still incorrectly believe that factors such as pesticides or pollution are bigger causes. Diets that have a high content of fruits, vegetables and whole grains and that go are low on red meats, dairy products and fats protect against heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Hormones that cause the body to grow quickly may be involved in some cancers. Tall people have a higher risk of cancer than shorter people. Breastfeeding reduces the risk of cancer for mother and child.
Repeated CT scans increase the risk.
Several studies, mostly involving Western populations, have found that cancer risk increases with height. Taller people are more likely to succumb to this disease. American Journal of Epidemiology, 2009.

What about high alkaline foods and water?
The kidneys and lungs can easily make the blood the normal pH necessary for proper body functioning even if high alkaline foods or water are consumed.

Role of alcohol
Men who drink beer or liquor on a regular basis have a higher risk of several different types of cancer. Among 3,600 Canadian men ages 35 to 70, those who averaged at least a drink per day had higher risks of a number of cancers than men who drank occasionally or not at all — including cancers of the esophagus, stomach, colon, lungs, pancreas, liver and prostate. When the researchers looked at individual types of alcohol, though, only beer and “spirits” — and not wine — were linked to elevated cancer risks. Cancer Prevention and Detection 2009.

Exercise and physical activity
Exercise is particularly important for overweight survivors of breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers, because lifestyle factors can significantly affect their quality of life. Men who exercise hard are less likely to die from cancer. British Journal of Sports Medicine, July 2009.

Pollution and environmental exposure
To lessen cancer risks:
Remove shoes before entering the home to avoid tracking in toxic chemicals such as pesticides.
Filter tap water.
Use stainless steel, glass or BPA-free plastic water bottles.
Microwave in ceramic or glass instead of plastic containers.
Minimize consumption of food grown with pesticides and meat raised with antibiotics and growth hormone.
Minimize consumption of processed, charred or well-done meats, which contain carcinogenic heterocyclic amines and polyaromatic hydrocarbons.
Reduce radiation from X-rays and other medical sources.
Reduce your exposure to three dangerous chemicals: formaldehyde, benzene and radon. Almost all homes contain formaldehyde, considered a probable human carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency. Formaldehyde is used in plywood, particle board, foam insulation, carpet and draperies, furniture, permanent press fabrics and toiletries. Exposure is highest when these are newly installed. Many Americans are exposed to formaldehyde at work, raising their risk of dying from Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other cancers. Exposure to benzene is widespread. Exhaust from cars and other vehicles contain benzene, listed as a known human carcinogen by the EPA. Radon, which forms naturally and can collect in homes, is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, behind smoking.

Hey,
by an ELECTRIC car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prevalence, incidence
Breast and prostate cancer head the list of the most common cancers, regardless of race, among American women and men. Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the US and the American Cancer Society estimates that in 2016 approximately 1.5 million Americans received a new diagnosis and over half-a-million Americans died of the disease.

Just four types account for half of all cancers in the U.S.: prostate, breast, lung and colorectal tumors.

Those who are tall are more likely to get this disease which may account why men have a slightly higher incidence, particularly of kidney, melanoma, and hematological malignancies. Many cancer survivors have unresolved physical and mental health issues long after being cured.

Each day, your immune system spots and destroys cells that could easily go on to become cancerous, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, news release, Feb. 2, 2014.

Knowing one’s genetic risk for cancer may not have a strong influence in changing behavior which makes one question whether such tests are necessary or helpful, Oct. 21, 2014, Annals of Internal Medicine.
Chemotherapy may worsen quality of life for some cancer patients who are nearing death. Cancer specialist doctors may presume there to be no harm in giving dying patients chemotherapy, but data point to more harm than benefit.

Bladder cancer
This
is the fourth and eighth most common cancer in men and women in the United States, respectively. Flavonoid phytochemicals are being studied for both prevention and therapy of various human malignancies including bladder Cancer. One such naturally occurring flavonoid is silibinin isolated from milk thistle. Cigarette smoking is confirmed as a risk factor for bladder cancer.

Green tea extract may interfere with a process that helps early bladder cancer to spread throughout the body. The findings bolster ongoing studies into green tea extract as a cancer treatment — and may give green tea drinkers more reason to savor every cup. When human bladder cells were exposed to both a cancer-causing chemical and green tea extract, the extract interfered with a particular process by which early cancer cells become invasive and spread throughout body tissue. This process involves the “remodeling” of actin, a structural protein in cells that is essential for cell movement. Actin remodeling allows cancer cells to move and invade nearby healthy tissue. Based on the new findings, green tea extract may get in the way of this process by activating a protein known as Rho, which helps regulate actin’s organization in cells and has been implicated in tumor development and progression.

Bone Cancer
Harvard University is investigating an allegation that a dentistry professor downplayed research showing an increased risk of bone cancer for boys who drink fluoridated tap water. Chester Douglass, who heads Harvard’s Department of Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology, received a $1.3 million grant in 1992 from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to conduct a study of fluoride exposure and osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Douglass’ 1992-1999 study found that the odds of having osteosarcoma after drinking fluoridated water were “not statistically different” from those who drank non-fluoridated water. But Elise Bassin, a doctoral student who Douglass supervised, reported in her 2001 thesis that boys who drink fluoridated water appear to have an increased risk of developing the bone cancer. Her findings were based on some of the same people used in Douglass’ study. The Environmental Working Group filed an ethics complaint against Douglass In June 2005 after discovering that Douglass cited Bassin’s research in his final grant report. In it, he said her work supported his claim that there was no significant risk from fluoridated water, even though Bassin had found a strong link between fluoride levels in tap water and an increased osteosarcoma risk for boys. There appears to be a conflict of interest between Douglass’ research and his position as editor-in-chief of The Colgate Oral Health Report, a quarterly newsletter funded by Colgate-Palmolive Co., which makes fluoridated toothpaste.

Brain cancer
The number of brain tumor cases in the US and Europe has increased by up to 40% in the past 20 years. The incidence rate for brain tumors is increasing among people of all ages, but males between 20 and 40 years old are the most affected. Epidemiological studies indicate that white collar workers — intellectuals and professionals — are among the most affected. The reason is still unknown, though environmental causes such as cellular phones, computers and exposure to electromagnetic fields cannot be ruled out.

Children fathered by men who have been exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) apparently have increased odds of developing brain tumors. Parental exposure to PAH, which occurs primarily through tobacco smoke, occupational exposure, and air pollution, could increase the risk of cancer during childhood.

Resveratrol, found in red wine, shows promise for the treatment of neuroblastoma.
In survivors of childhood cancer, exposure to radiation therapy, especially before 5 years of age, is the most important risk factor for the development of a new primary tumor of the central nervous system (CNS). The most common CNS tumors in these children are gliomas and meningiomas, which are primarily located in the brain but can occur elsewhere.
Coffee and tea lovers may have a decreased likelihood of developing the most common form of malignant brain tumor in adults. A study of more than 500,000 European adults adds to evidence from a recent U.S. study linking higher coffee and tea intake to a lower risk of gliomas, a group of brain tumors that makes up about 80 percent of malignant brain cancers in adults. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, online September 15, 2010.

Breast Cancer — for a fuller discussion, click the link below
Breast cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in women in the United States and is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer-related deaths.
A high-fiber low-fat diet reduces blood levels of estrogen in women with breast cancer, researchers report. This may help keep the disease in check, as breast cancers are sometimes driven by female hormones.
    Even moderate physical activity over the course of a lifetime can reduce a young woman’s risk.
Having breast cancer tissue sampled with a needle seems to increase the odds that disease will also be found in an armpit lymph node called the sentinel node, new research suggests. The spread of breast cancer to the sentinel node adversely affects a woman’s survival and influences the treatment received. As reported in the Archives of Surgery, Dr. Nora M. Hansen of the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center, Santa Monica, California hypothesized that the method used to obtain specimens from the breast tumor might influence the spread of cancer to the sentinel node. To investigate, the researchers studied 663 women with proven breast cancer. Of the cancers, about half were biopsied with a needle, while the remainder involved actual removal of the tumor. Women who had a needle biopsy were about 50 percent more likely to have cancer in the sentinel node than women who underwent tumor removal. The researchers suggest that the increased risk of sentinel node disease may be “due in part to the mechanical disruption of the tumor by the needle,” and they call for further studies to confirm these findings. Archives of Surgery, June 2004.
A high-fiber low-fat diet reduces blood levels of estrogen in women with breast cancer. This may help keep the disease in check, as breast cancers are sometimes driven by female hormones.
High-carb diets may increase more than just waistlines. New research suggests they might raise the risk of breast cancer.
Genistein, which has weak estrogenic and antiestrogenic properties, may be one of the the components in the soy-based Asian diet that helps prevent breast cancer by its effects on biochemistry early in life. Reduced caloric consumption by Asians may be another reason for the lower rate of breast cancer.
One test tube study indicates saw palmetto slows the growth of breast cancer cells.
Consider the following supplements: Black Cohosh, Cat’s Claw,  Curcumin, Green Tea, and Melatonin. You can read more about them by clicking on the links here or at the top of the page.

Cervical
Screening should begin within 3 years after a woman begins having vaginal intercourse, but no later than 21 years of age. If traditional Pap test results are obtained, screening should be done every year. If liquid-based Pap tests are used, screening should be done every 2 years. Many American women who have had a complete hysterectomy are having Pap smear screenings even though they are not at risk of cervical cancer.
Women infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) may reduce the odds that the virus will persist by increasing the amount of certain carotenoids– plant compounds with antioxidant properties – in their diets. Specifically, the study found that increasing dietary intake of lutein/zeaxanthin, beta-cryptoxanthin, vitamin C, and papaya appears to lower the risk of persistent HPV infection, a strong risk factor for cervical cancer.

Colon cancer
Eating lots of preserved meats such as salami, bacon, cured ham and hot dogs could increase the risk of bowel cancer by 50 percent. Fiber found in vegetables, fruits, and whole grain cereals and legumes may reduce colon cancer risk. A daily calcium supplement protects against colon polyps, particularly the advanced type that go on to become cancer.
Sigmoidoscopy is recommended every 5 years starting at age 50.
Despite recent advances in screening and treatment for colon cancer, the number of people dying from the disease has remained steady since the late 1980s.
Higher milk and calcium consumption is linked with reduced odds of developing colorectal cancer, according to an analysis of ten studies.   

Endometrial
Risk factors are unopposed estrogen therapy, late menopause, tamoxifen, nulliparity, infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome, diabetes, and obesity. Most endometrial cancers are diagnosed at an early stage when there is unexpected bleeding or spotting.
Regular consumption of soy foods seems to reduce a woman’s risk of getting cancer of the endometrium, the lining of the uterus, according to a study conducted in Shanghai. This benefit is most pronounced among overweight women. The estrogens women produce are known to play a key role in the development of endometrial cancer, the researchers note in this week’s British Medical Journal. Soy foods contain isoflavones with both estrogen-like and anti-estrogen activities.

Esophageal or esophagus
The most prominent, scientifically supported, and long-regarded risk factors for esophageal cancer are tobacco, alcohol, and reflux esophagitis. Dietary habits, nutrition, local customs, and the environment are contributing factors. Along these lines, vitamins, minerals, fruits, vegetables, meats, fats, salted foods, nitrogen compounds, carcinogens, mycotoxins, and even the temperature of what we consume (for instance drinking very hot tea or coffee) are increasingly regarded as potential etiologies for this deadly although potentially preventable disease.

Carbonated drinks may raise the risk of esophageal cancer. A team at Tata Memorial Hospital in India found a strong correlation between the rise in per capita consumption of carbonated soft drinks in the past 50 years and a documented increase in rates of esophageal cancer in the United States. Team members studied U.S. Department of Agriculture data to find that per capita consumption of carbonated drinks rose by more than 450 percent, from 10 gallons on average in 1946 to 49 gallons in 2000. And over the past 25 years, the incidence of esophageal cancer has risen by more than 570 percent in white American men. Esophageal cancer affected 13,900 U.S. men and women in 2003, of whom more than 10,000 were men, and killed almost all of them, according to the American Cancer Society. The number of esophageal cancer cases clearly followed the rise in intake of carbonated soft drinks, the researchers found.
Research in China provides further evidence that exposure to silica dust raises the risk of cancer of the esophagus, the organ that connects the mouth with the stomach. The association was first noted in 1968, when a high rate of esophagus cancer was observed among residents of a South African village, which seemed to result, in part, from silica contamination of their diet. Since then, numerous other reports have verified this association. In the present study, Dr. Ignatius Tak Sun Yu, of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and colleagues evaluated death from esophagus cancer among nearly 3000 caisson workers and non-caisson workers exposed to silica. Caisson workers were defined as subjects who worked underground in settings with high levels of silica dust. The researchers’ findings appear in the International Journal of Cancer. Compared with the general population, the workers were 2.2-times more likely to die from esophageal cancer. The elevated risk was 4.21-fold for the caisson subset of workers.
In patients with early-stage cancer of the esophagus, those who were treated with radiation and chemotherapy before surgery lived more than twice as long as those who were treated with surgery alone.
Persistent hiccupping in addition to weight-loss and difficulty swallowing could be a warning sign of cancer of the esophagus. Hiccups are caused by the involuntary spasm of the diaphragm, which causes the vocal cords to close very briefly. Eating too quickly or too much, coughing, laughing and too much alcohol are thought to cause hiccups. In cancer patients, hiccups could be linked to the vagal nerve or phrenic nerve, the motor nerve of the diaphragm.
There is no association between the use of carbonated beverages and risk of subsequent development of cancer of the esophagus.
About a third of East Asians — Chinese, Japanese and Koreans — have an enzyme deficiency that puts them at higher risk of developing esophageal cancer when they drink alcohol.
Overweight teens are at increased risk for developing it later in life. Cancer, news release, Oct. 14, 2013. Exercise lowers the risk.
Bisphosphonates, drugs sold as Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva and other brands, are widely used after menopause to prevent or treat osteoporosis. They increase the risk.

Drinking plus being overweight is a bad combo when it comes to esophageal cancer.

Head and Neck cancers
Chronic tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption are well-established risk factors for the development of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. There are, however, a variety of other habitual and culturally based activities that are less commonly seen in the Western world and that are also risks factors for the development of this type of cancer. In this era of globalization, many of these habits have now crossed borders and appear in various areas throughout the world. These factors include chewing tobacco and snuff, areca nut in its various forms, and Khat leaves.

People who eat plenty of fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of developing cancers of the head and neck. Researchers at the National Cancer Institute found that among more than 490,000 Americans age 50 and up, those who consumed the most fruits and vegetables were the least likely to develop cancers of the mouth, throat or voice box. Smoking and heavy drinking are two major risk factors for head and neck cancers. (International Journal of Cancer, May 15, 2008.)

People with cancers of the head or neck have better survival odds if they have private health insurance. Head and neck cancers include cancers of the mouth, throat, nasal cavity, salivary glands and lymph nodes of the neck. Most cases are linked to smoking, with excessive drinking being the other major risk factor.

Intestinal
Diets high in saturated fat appear to increase the risk of cancer of the small intestine. The small intestine makes up 75 percent of the digestive tract, yet rarely do cancers develop there, more often showing up in the large intestine, or colon. (Cancer Research, November 15, 2008.)

Kidney
A diet high in refined cereals, and bread in particular, is associated with an elevated risk of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the main type of kidney cancer.
Eating red meat may increase a person’s risk of developing renal cell carcinoma — which accounts for 85 percent of kidney cancer, while eating vegetables may provide a protective effect. Dr. Nabih R. Asal of the University of Florida, Gainesville found that people who ate lots of white bread and white potatoes were at greater risk of the disease than their peers who ate these foods less frequently. (Journal of the American Dietetic Association, April 2009.)

Leukemia
Living near a fuel station may quadruple the risk of acute leukemia in children,. French scientists who carried out a study of more than 500 infants found that a child whose home was near a fuel station or vehicle-repair garage was four times as likely to develop leukemia as a child whose home was further away. And the longer a child had lived nearby, the higher the risk of leukemia seemed to be. The prevalence of childhood leukemia is four in every 100,000 children, but it is the most common type of childhood cancer in developed countries. Few clear risk factors have been identified for the childhood variant, but exposure to benzene in the workplace has been identified as a possible factor in leukemia in adults. The risk appeared to be even greater for acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia, which was seven times more common among children living close to a fuel station or commercial garage.

Kids with leukemia do not take enough antioxidants, which raises their risk of side effects during chemotherapy. Chemotherapy produces changes that stress the body’s antioxidant defense system. Therefore, it’s important that the diets of cancer patients contain adequate amounts of antioxidants. In a 6-month study, the researchers examined antioxidant intake and chemotherapy side effects in 103 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common cancer in kids. During the study period subjects ingested vitamin E, total carotenoids, beta-carotene, and vitamin A in amounts that were 66, 30, 59, and 29 percent, respectively, of the US recommended dietary allowance. Greater intake of vitamin C was associated with fewer therapy delays, less side effects, and fewer days spent in the hospital. Similarly, the risk of infection and side effects decreased as vitamin E and beta-carotene intake increased.

Regular consumption of fruits and vegetables during the first two years of life is associated with a reduced risk of childhood leukemia.

Living near a high-voltage power line roughly doubles the risk of childhood cancers such as leukaemia.

Rosemary extracts have been found to be helpful.
Children being treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) seem more able to deal with their treatment if their levels of antioxidants don’t drop too much.
Parthenolide, a compound found in feverfew, has been tested against chronic myelogenous leukemia.

Liver
Heavy alcohol use, diabetes, and viral hepatitis combine synergistically to raise the risk of developing liver cancer. Carnitine may be helpful.

Lung
In people at high risk for lung cancer, low-dose CT scanning of the chest may detect early lung cancer. However, “its usefulness as a screening tool is limited because it misses tumors in certain areas of the lung and often falsely identifies harmless spots as being cancerous.

Workers exposed to the pesticide chlorpyrifos have an elevated risk of lung cancer and lung disease. Annual screening for lung cancer using computed tomography (CT) can help detect the disease at its earliest, most curable stage, but it does not reduce mortality from the disease and could actually result in more harm than good.

Plenty of sunshine and vitamin D may help people with early stage lung cancer survive longer after surgery. Patients who had high levels of vitamin D and had lung cancer surgery in sunny months were more than twice as likely to be alive five years after surgery compared to patients with low levels of vitamin D who had surgery in the winter. Exposure to sunshine is a significant source of vitamin D, which also comes from food and dietary supplements.

A study conducted in an area of Italy where residential radon levels are high confirms that the risk of lung cancer increases in step with levels of radon exposure, but that the Mediterranean diet may modify the effects. In the study, researchers examined the association between indoor radon exposure and lung cancer in 384 “case” patients with lung cancer and 404 control patients without lung cancer. They considered the potential role of smoking, diet, and other risk factors. The researchers determined residential history during the 30-year period ending 5 years prior to enrollment. Radon detectors were placed in the main bedroom and the living room in each residence for two consecutive 6-month periods. Confirming prior studies, the researchers found a positive link between indoor radon and lung cancer. The odds of developing lung cancer rose with increasing levels of residential radon exposure. Overall, the increase was generally not statistically significant, although significance was reached for some high radon exposure categories. They also report that individuals with low-medium consumption of dietary oxidants tended to be at greater risk for developing lung cancer. The possibility that dietary antioxidants may modify the effects of radon on lung cancer risk should be studied further, they conclude. SOURCE: International Journal of Cancer, May 10, 2005.

Although both marijuana and tobacco smoke are packed with cancer-causing chemicals, other qualities of marijuana seem to keep it from promoting lung cancer. The difference rests in the often opposing actions of the nicotine in tobacco and the active ingredient, THC, in marijuana, says Dr. Robert Melamede of the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. Whereas nicotine has several effects that promote lung and other types of cancer, THC acts in ways that counter the cancer-causing chemicals in marijuana smoke. Lab research indicates that nicotine activates a body enzyme that converts certain chemicals in both tobacco and marijuana smoke into cancer-promoting form. In contrast, studies in mice suggest that THC blocks this enzyme activity.

Eating cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli and sprouts, protects against the development of lung cancer. A person’s genetic makeup may influence these anti-cancer benefits.
Despite large declines in smoking rates, cigarettes still cause about one-third of cancer deaths in the United States.

Lymphoma
Infection with hepatitis C virus nearly doubles the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer involving the lymph nodes. People who undergo chest radiation therapy early in life to treat Hodgkin’s disease — a type of lymphoma — appear to be at increased risk of cardiovascular abnormalities.

Melanoma skin cancer
Australia has the highest skin cancer rate in the world and despite decades of health campaigning the rate of melanoma, which is the most common kind of skin cancer, is soaring. The melanoma rate rose 12 percent in men and 15 percent in women in the last 10 years, and is expected to rise another 11 percent.

Neuroblastoma
Zeaxanthin is an interesting nutrient that has been looked at as a treatment for neuroblastoma.

Oral
Many healthy people who smoke or drink may have a genetic alteration in the cells of the mouth and throat that could signal an increased risk of developing cancer.

A simple inspection of the mouth by trained healthcare workers could reduce oral cancer deaths worldwide by at least 37,000 annually. Oral cancer is a common problem among men in developing countries, and is often associated with tobacco or alcohol use. Short of convincing people not to engage in these activities — which is notoriously difficult — detecting and treating early disease may be the best approach. Visual inspection of the mouth has proven to be a simple and accurate means of screening for oral cancer.

Ovarian
After following more than 60,000 women for an average of 13.5 years, Swedish researchers found that those who drank at least two glasses of milk every day or consumed at least four daily servings of dairy products were twice as likely to develop serous epithelial ovarian cancer as those who consumed less than two servings of dairy a day.
Increased risk with postmenopausal estrogen use. Decreased risk with aspirin use. Women who eat plenty of vegetables, particluarly carrots, tomatoes and other foods high in carotene and lycopene may reduce their risk.

A case-control study of diet and the risk of ovarian cancer. Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2004 Sep;13(9):1521-7. Epidemiologic studies have suggested that some dietary factors may play a role in the etiology of ovarian cancer, but the findings have been inconsistent. We assessed the association of ovarian cancer with dietary factors in a population-based case-control study in Canada. Diet information was collected on 442 incident cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed in 1994 to 1997 and 2,135 population controls via a self-administered questionnaire. We did not observe an association of ovarian cancer risk with dietary fat intake, including saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein, carbohydrate, dietary fiber, fruit, dairy products, meat products, fish, chicken, grain products, nut products, baked desserts, margarine, butter, mayonnaise, and supplement of multiple vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, zinc, and selenium. Our findings suggested that ovarian cancer risk was positively associated with higher consumption of dietary cholesterol and eggs and inversely associated with higher intake of total vegetables and cruciferous vegetables and supplementation of vitamin E, beta-carotene, and B-complex vitamins.

Pancreatic
Physical activity decreases risk, obesity increases risk. A diet high in vegetables reduces the risk of pancreatic cancer. Smokers who consume diets rich in saturated fat may be at increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer.

Penile
A sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer is also a cause for half of all cases of cancer of the penis, Perhaps human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines for cervical cancer are also likely to be effective in the fight against penile cancer. Merck & Co’s Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline’s Cervarix are both used widely to immunize girls against HPV infection, which can lead to cancer of the cervix. However, penile cancer is quite rare, accounting for less than 1 percent of adult male cancers in Europe and North America, although the incidence can be as high as 10 percent in parts of Africa and Asia. Worldwide, there are more than 25,000 new cases every year.

Prostate tumors
Click prostate cancer for a full discussion of the latest research on diet and natural supplements involved in the prevention or treatment of prostate cancer.

Skin
Is the use of sunscreens effective in preventing wrinkles or damage to skin leading to abnormal growth leading to skin cancer?

Stomach
Regularly consuming hot dogs, salami, bacon, smoked ham, or other processed meat products may raise the risk of stomach cancer.

Testicular or testis
Testicular cancer occurs in about 8000 men each year.
Q. I am a 43 year old male who recently underwent an inguinal orchiectomy – 10 days ago. I noticed I was having some ”hot flashes” last week while I was recovering, and informed my Urologist about these symptoms. He had blood drawn from me (not in the morning as suggested), the findings indicated I had an abnormally low testosterone count of 26 nanograms per deciliter. To back up somewhat, I had been taking about 250 mg of DHEA per day for well over a year and only discontinued it’s use about 5 days prior to my diagnosis of testicular cancer. So, as of today I have been off DHEA for approximately 2 weeks. Now my Doctor has me on a topical gel to replace testosterone and has basically told me I am stuck with this for life. I have one testicle, but it appears to not be functioning.
A. This is interesting, I do not know if taking the high dosages of DHEA had an influence on the testicular cancer formation.

Throat
Drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes increase the risk.

Uterine
The use of clomiphene citrate to induce ovulation in women with fertility problems appears to be associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer.

What is it?
A cancer is a cell that has lost its normal control mechanisms and thus has unregulated growth. Cancer can develop from any tissue within any organ. As cells grow and multiply, they form a mass of cancerous tissue that invades adjacent tissues and can spread (metastasize) around the body

Cancer cells develop from normal cells in a complex process called transformation. The first step in the process is initiation, in which a change in the cell’s genetic material primes the cell to become cancerous. The change in the cell’s genetic material is brought about by an agent called a carcinogen–such as a chemical, virus, radiation, or sunlight. However, not all cells are equally susceptible to carcinogens. A genetic flaw in the cell or another agent, called a promoter, may make it more susceptible. Even chronic physical irritation may make cells more susceptible to becoming cancerous. In the next step, promotion, a cell that has been initiated becomes cancerous. Several factors, often the combination of a susceptible cell and a carcinogen, are needed to cause cancer. About 15 to 20 percent of cancers are associated with an infection, for instance viruses with cervical cancer and helicobacter pylori with gastric cancer.

Radiation exposure
Nuclear industry workers exposed to chronic low doses of radiation have a slightly higher risk of developing cancer. Approximately one person out of 1,000 would develop cancer from exposure to the amount of radiation from a single, average whole body CT-scan. Even very low doses of radiation pose a risk of cancer over a person’s lifetime, including radiation from routine X-rays.

People who get whole-body X-ray scans in the hope of finding tumors at their earliest stages may, ironically, be raising their overall risk of cancer. The scans are marketed as a way to catch cancer before symptoms begin, but the radiation from the scans themselves could cause cancer.

Work exposure of toxins
Death rates, both overall and cancer -related, are considerably higher among workers engaged in manufacturing computers and component parts, when compared with the general population. Similar findings have been reported among employees who work in plants that manufacture computers, semiconductors, integrated circuits and other components

Pollution
Diesel fumes from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach — the busiest U.S. seaport complex — raise the risk of cancer for people living up to 15 miles inland. The report by the California Air Resources Board said 50,000 people living closest to the two ports face a higher-than-average risk of developing cancer from port pollution alone. But even residents living within 15 miles of the complex face a slightly higher risk than Californians as a whole.

Research
Treatment with a shark cartilage product does not prolong life in patients with advanced cancer, nor does it improve quality of life. Shark cartilage has become a popular alternative medicine for people with advanced cancer. Its use is based on the belief that the reason sharks rarely develop cancer is because of their high cartilage content. Previous reports examining the benefits of shark cartilage as an anti-cancer therapy, however, have yielded mixed results. In one of the few randomized trials to evaluate this treatment, Dr. Charles L. Loprinzi, from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and colleagues compared the outcomes of 89 patients with incurable breast or colon cancer who were treated with shark cartilage or placebo in addition to standard care and treatment with chemotherapy if appropriate. The shark cartilage and placebo were supplied as a powder, mixed with water or juice, and consumed three to four times per day. There was no difference in overall survival between subjects drinking shark cartilage and those drinking placebo, the researchers report in the journal Cancer.

Growing body of evidence linking increased night light to certain types of cancer has led researchers to suspect it could be connected to the steady increase in cases of childhood leukemia. Scientists presenting research at the First International Scientific Conference on Childhood Leukemia said that light at night and working shifts, which disrupts the body’s internal clock, have been associated with an raised risk of breast and colorectal cancer.

Loss of weight and muscle mass, common among people with cancer, may be improved with fish oil supplements, according to a report. Intestinal upsets make high-dose fish oil capsules difficult for many people with cancer-related wasting to tolerate, but those who are able to take the supplements regularly may be able to stabilize their weight or even gain pounds, according to Dr. Patrick Burns of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City and colleagues. Animal studies and some clinical investigations have suggested omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oils may protect against cachexia, as weight loss related to a chronic disease is called.

The intake of 400-600 g/d of fruits and vegetables is associated with reduced incidence of many common forms of cancer, and diets rich in plant foods are also associated with a reduced risk of heart disease and many chronic diseases of ageing. These foods contain phytochemicals that have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties which confer many health benefits. Many phytochemicals are colourful, and recommending a wide array of colourful fruits and vegetables is an easy way to communicate increased diversity of intake to the consumer. For example, red foods contain lycopene, the pigment in tomatoes, which is localized in the prostate gland and may be involved in maintaining prostate health, and which has also been linked with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Green foods, including broccoli, Brussels sprouts and kale, contain glucosinolates which have also been associated with a decreased risk of cancer. Garlic and other white-green foods in the onion family contain allyl sulphides which may inhibit cancer cell growth. Other bioactive substances in green tea and soybeans have health benefits as well.

The Unending Debate: Do Vitamin Pills Prevent Cancer?
For several decades the scientific community has debated whether vitamin and mineral supplements prevent or reduce the risk of cancer. Over the years numerous studies have given contradictory results leaving the medical community uncertain of what to recommend to the public. In this latest study, scientists, from the Scientific and Technical Institute for Nutrition and Diet in Paris, France gave a vitamin/mineral supplement to thousands of men and women. A total of 13,000 men and women aged 35 to 60 took part in the study. Half were given a daily supplement containing 6mg of beta-carotene, 120mg of vitamin C, 90mg of vitamin E, 100 micrograms of selenium, and 20 milligrams of zinc. A dummy capsule was given to the other participants. At the end of seven years, the researchers found that taking the supplement had no effect on heart disease, and did not influence cancer rates in women. But they found a 31% reduction in the risk of all cancers in men taking the antioxidants. And, overall, the death rate was 37% lower among men who took the supplement. The researchers, said: “Our findings support recommendations for following a healthy diet, particularly one rich in fruit and vegetables which are major dietary sources of antioxidant vitamins and minerals, for all ages in life and for both sexes.”

They added that women may not have received the same benefits because their diet were better than those of men and they perhaps were already ingesting many healthy antioxidants through their diet.
Dr. Sahelian says: The debate seems to continue regarding the role of vitamin/mineral supplements and the prevention of cancer. It appears that those with a very health diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables are not likely to reap much benefit from supplements, but those with a marginal diet would.

Vitamin B17, laetrile for cancer remedy
What do you think of laetrile as a cancer remedy?
I have not seen convincing studies that vitamin B17 is effective as a cancer remedy.

The last days of cancer treatment
There appears to be a disturbing rise in the number of cancer patients getting chemo and other aggressive but futile treatment in the last days of their lives. Rather than letting these dying patients live the last days of their lives in peace, they are subjected to painful and nauseating chemotherapy. Nearly 12 percent of cancer patients who died in 1999 received chemotherapy in the last two weeks of life, a large review of Medicare records revealed. That is up from nearly 10 percent in 1993, and the percentage probably is even higher today. Overly aggressive treatment gives false hope and puts people through grueling and costly ordeals when there is no chance of a cure.

I remember in my residency days at a Philadelphia hospital encountering so many patients who very on their to dying, but rather than providing supportive care in a hospice or with their family, the oncologists pushed more and more drugs on them. One particular patient, a 74 year old man with metastatic lung cancer, had come for intensive chemotherapy. He was actually alert and in relatively good shape when he first came in. He was started on chemotherapy and within a couple of days he started losing weight at a rapid pace, his hemoglobin level dropped, he started getting rashes and bruises all over his body, his white blood cell count dropped, and soon he had chemotherapy induced nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. He got infected with a gastrointestinal bug, was given antibiotics which made him even more sick. Even as he was rapidly deteriorating, the oncologist kept prescribing more chemotherapy. I was a first year resident and thought at the time that the doctor must know what he was doing.

As I reflected on this more later, it became apparent to me that specialists do make mistakes or may be suggesting medical treatments just so that they can continue charging for their visits. Within 6 weeks of being admitted into the hospital he passed away, a miserable, painful, death. I’ve long thought about him and whether he would have been better off staying home. All all the medical dollars that were wasted on him could have been used to immunize poor children or helping those with no medical insurance.

Food additives and cancer
Food coloring Red 2G (E 128), which is added to some breakfast sausages and burger meat, may cause cancer. Tests using animals indicated that aniline, a substance into which Red 2G is converted in the body, might cause cancer in animals and humans, possibly hitting the genetic material of cells.

Questions
Q. I’ve seen promotional material for glyconutrient and cancer, can you shed some light on this?
A. I have a full discussion on glyconutrients here.

Q. i wanted to ask as i read many herbs that could treat cancer like Essaic Tea, Noni Juice, Goji Berry mangosteen, so i wanted to ask what is the difference between them and which do u think is more effective. Aslo, can you comment on Dr. Johanna Budwigs flaxseed oil and cottage cheese cancer cure?

A. It is impossible to know which is better or which combination is best since so little study has been done on humans with these herbs. As to Dr. Johanna Budwigs flaxseed oil and cottage cheese diet treatment, I have not seen such studies that show it to be effective.

Q. Should a patient with cancer take any supplements that increase testosterone? I understand that testosterone feeds cancer.

A. There are a number of different types of cancer, some are responsive to blood hormone levels or hormone usage, others are not. Testosterone is particularly associated with prostate cancer.

This is the problem. We can’t “trust” the laymen and we can’t trust the corporations and we can’t trust many doctors and we certainly can’t “trust” the internet. I trust in God, who told me He helps those who help themselves, so now I am studying integrative medicine. Because I am too poor to go back to the University, and I live in a remote rural community, I have to educate and make decisions for myself. I would no more follow the advice of Florida Congresswoman’s advice than I would that of the Cancer society or the doctor I am assigned to, without researching thoroughly. They are only dangerous to those who do not take the time to research her position. Most people do not have the time to do as I do. They will take “on faith” that anyone in “authority” knows what he is talking about.

They are too busy juggling stressful lives, and easily intimidated. And most of them will add the stress of ill health to the rest of their problems. I subscribe to your newsletter because I consider you a relatively knowledgeable and intelligent person. You and Dr. Weil, Dr. Pauling, Dr. Hoffer and Dr. Strand all share a trait I have come to appreciate on the internet … you are all conservative both in discussion and the language used to present it, and you cite references. You are also
Integrative or orthomolecular physicians, not snake-oil salesmen with instant cures. Much of this is above my head, but I am learning. No one person can store all this in his head. I have decided it is the essence of wisdom not to retain it all but to retain its sources and its references. You offer a good reference and are a good source.

Could you answer which of the following you feel might be good or bad: Cesium Chloride – DMSO/MSM/Cesium Chloride (DMCC), MMS (chlorine dioxide), Gerson Therapy, Bob Beck Protocol, Cellect-Budwig Ozone Therapy, Dr. Stananislaw Burzynsk antineoplastons and Aminocare, Lifewave, Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT), Matthias Rath Oral Amino Acid Protocol, Brandt Grape Protocol, Intravenice C. Supplements covered on your site: Avemar Dong quai (for anemia caused by Multiple Myeloma) Energy Kampo Force-C (Ginsenoside – Aglycon Sapongenin) Germanium 132, Graviola MaxHerbal C (Taxus Brevifolia, Ginsenoside aglycon sapogenin), Immune C Spray (Baccharis Trimera, Plantago Majora Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis) NTense NTense-2, Pancreatic Enzymes, Peony root (for anemia caused by Multiple Myeloma), Poly-MVA, Pawpaw, SaliciniumVitalsil (Antrodia camphorata), Zolite, limu.
I have not looked into these alternative cancer therapies to any great extent to have a thorough and educated opinion.

    NOW,
My Dear Friends,
Stop acting like you are too busy.
Get in your car (electric, I hope)
go to the health food store and spend your money wisely.
Arm your poor deprived body with what it needs to fight cancer.
You now know what to purchase.

Take the list with you!

          The brilliance of the Love all around.

The Fragrance That Endures / The Silence Within

“Silence is as deep as Eternity;
speech,
shallow as time.”

Thomas Carlyle

Love
is the Fragrance
that endures.
It endures
beyond all things.
It lingers
in the air,
with every breath
we breathe,
every word we
share.
It glistens
in your hair.
It murmurs
in your Heart,
and then,
it flairs.

                  There is Time enough.

And sometimes,
Love hides.
It disappears,
but then again,
it is
there.

Love
is a fruit in season at all times,

and within reach of every hand.”
Mother Teresa

My Dear Friends,
we are
Brothers of the Wind,
Sailors
on the Sea of Time,
the Time left
to be.

As familiar
as an old Friend,
is the fragrant air we breathe,
warm and calming.
And in silence,
if to listen we dare,
the Heart will declare
within itself to be,
the cherished Love
we seek to find,
and forever be.

“True Silence
is the rest of the Mind,
and is to the Spirit,
what Sleep is to the Body,
Nourishment and Refreshment.
It is a great Virtue;
it covers Folly, keeps Secrets, avoids Disputes,
and prevents Sin.”
William Penn

         As familiar as an old Friend.

Yes,
there is Time
enough to be
reborn.
Time
to be more alive
than ever
before.

I know,
and you know,
with every fiber of our Being,
with every beat of our Heart,
that LOVE is always
the answer.
Love and only Love
heals all wounds,
and will always
be.

Always.

To be possessed
of Love,
is
to be possessed of Life,
and hear the lovely,
peaceful flowing melody
of everything
God wills for
YOU.

As we close our eyes,
in silence and in Love,
we start to see
in Dreams
fluttering past our tired eyes.
And the past is washed away,
as Love cleanses the mind,
and Life
becomes clear,
as we
experience the subtlety
of our Nature.

Life
for many
becomes a sad song,
and at the same time,
can give a smile to your face.
Our desperation
can be Beautifully blended
with our Prayers
and our Hope,
and like a magnificent work of modern art,
become Majestic.

With God,
all
things are possible.

“Recently I met a group of scientists in America who said that the rate of Dalai Lamamental illness in their country was quite high – around 12 percent of the population. It became clear during our discussion that the main cause of depression was not a lack of material necessities, but a deprivation of the affection of others.”
– Dalai Lama

When left alone, we will not survive.

                     The silence within.

One must create
a silence within.

Go deeply within the self
and speak as though
there were a Presence there
that knows.

There is.

“God’s poet is Silence!
His Song is unspoken

And yet so profound, and so loud, and so far,
That it thrills you and fills you
in measures unbroken —

The unceasing Song
of the first morning Star.”

Joaquin Miller,  from “The True Poet”

It is most worthwhile
to commune with the Spirit,
to sense it and feel It.
To approach the Spirit
directly,
the pathway
is through our own
Prayers.

This moment,
when you are pierced to the center
and know beyond knowing
what the center of your Life is,
and it is HIM,
and it is all
you will ever, ever want.”
Margaret Pace

It is time for us to see
who we are?
And there is
good news.
What God wants you to be,
you are.

             We try too hard.

My Friends,
we try too hard.
Stop trying to be yourself
and accept
that you are
yourself.

What is inside you
desperately seeks the manifestation
only you can provide.
In silence,
let it out!

“The most powerful thing you can do
is to be ALIVE.

Alive to your purpose.
Alive to, and fully open and inspired by,
your dreams.
To stop holding back on the truth
within your Heart and Soul.
You have been given a dream, a vision, a Legacy
by Divine Authority.
And it’s time to bring it to Life.
Because dreams aren’t just for dreaming;
they’re for doing.”
Annie S. Anderson

God wants you to be
who you are.
Each day we awake
and begin anew
to find out what Life
is all about.

With God
on our side,
deep inside our Prayers,
we can find
the answer.

Then,
we have finally
arrived.

       We are Brothers of the Wind.

When a curtain is pulled back,
that opens up your Heart,
reveals what is Beyond,
what may come to be –

the Archer may pull
the Arrow of your time
and bend the bow back.
But the arrow
moves forward,
to pierce all your Tomorrows,
with all your beautiful
Dreams.

 

 

Ever moving,
every One.
And in the way it moves,
Life
goes on.
What lies Beyond
points the way
Home:
to Love
in new dimensions,
to Faith
in the future,
to Pathways
of Salvation,
to Hope
for the Dawn
of a new day,
which surely will come.

Looking back
is far beyond
what need be.
.
Only forward,
My Friend,
can you find Hope,
the comfort of Forgiveness,
and the Everlasting Love of God,
to one day
clearly see.

Goodnight.

“We listen too much to the telephone
and we listen too little to Nature.
The wind is one of my sounds.
A lonely sound, perhaps, but soothing.
Everybody should have
his personal sounds to listen for –
sounds that will make him exhilarated and alive,
or quiet and calm…
As a matter of fact,
one of the greatest sounds of them all –
and to me it is a sound
– is utter, complete
silence.”

André Kostelanetz

                We awake and begin anew.

Starting Over is Forfeiting the End / Where JOY Hides and How To Find It / Friday: Modern Art Museum

What we endear,
defines
what we can endure.
The weather
in the mind
may be
cloudy or clear,
intemperate,
or to your Sacred Heart,
very dear.

“I have been thinking about this for a long time;
trying to understand how we are asked
by merely waking
to endure the hardships of living
and how we are asked,
in the midst of that struggle,
and often through the openings that struggle creates,
to endear ourselves
into the Fabric of Life.”
Mark Nepo
To Endure and Endear

But
True Love,
My Dear Friend,
is a term of
endearment
meant for us all.
From the start,
God expresses his deep and abiding
affection for us.

The Love of God,
is beyond definition.
It defies even death.
The Ultimate Love
of God
defines
Eternity.

“Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.”
Frederick M. Lehman
(The Love of God)

My Friends,
give Life,
and the Love of Life,
a new beginning
so the morrow
may become a friend.
Starting over
is forfeiting the end.

In our stories
of Hope,
we harvest
every Season
of the Heart.

Joy,
the second fruit of the Spirit,
(Galatians 5:22)
is more than just happiness.
There is
a Joy that God gives
that far exceeds
mere Human cheerfulness.

    You are not shade or shadow.

Seeing clearly,
we find
our mortal shapes
made of clay,
walk in the LIGHT
of God’s Pure Love
day by day.

He can make you laugh,
and teach you
once again,
to play and have fun,
and bask
in the Glorious Light
of His Sun.

You are not
shade or shadow.
Your Spirit
need never lie
in the field
fallow.

My Friend,
the shape
of Life’s Compass,
is in the likeness
of the Cross.
Such Compassion,
as was His suffering
and sacrifice,
truly
shows us the
WAY.

The shape of Life’s Compass.

Our perilous imaginations
can preclude
the common denominator
of common sense.

What ultimately matters
has nothing to do
with matter,
and everything
to do with
the Spirit.

Go
to your Heavenly Father
in Prayer.
He is listening
to hear the
the sound of your voice,
just as YOU
long to hear
the sound
of your precious
Child.

“Arise,
Cry aloud in the night,

At the beginning of the night watches;
Pour out your Heart like water
Before the presence of the Lord.”
Lamentations 2:19

Yes,
a Child of yours,
crying aloud
in need in the night,
would find YOU
to be
by their side.
And so it is
with your Father
in Heaven Above.

“No temptation has overtaken you
except what is COMMON to mankind.
And God is Faithful;
He will not let you be tempted
beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted,
he will also provide a way out
so that you can endure it.”
First Corinthians 10:13

This Scripture
teaches us something wonderful.
If we belong to God,
He will not allow any difficulty
to come into our lives
that we are not capable of bearing.
With every temptation,
with every trial that comes our way,
God will remain Faithful
to us;
He will provide
a way to endure.

Goodnight.

Where JOY Hides
and How To Find It.

by Ingrid Fetell Lee
click here for more

 “I know what joy feels like, but what is it, exactly?” And I found that even scientists don’t always agree, and they sometimes use the words “joy” and “happiness” and “positivity” more or less interchangeably. But broadly speaking, when psychologists use the word joy, what they mean is an intense, momentary experience of positive emotion — one that makes us smile and laugh and feel like we want to jump up and down. And this is actually a technical thing. That feeling of wanting to jump up and down is one of the ways that scientists measure joy. It’s different than happiness, which measures how good we feel over time. Joy is about feeling good in the moment, right now. And this was interesting to me because as a culture, we are obsessed with the pursuit of happiness, and yet in the process, we kind of overlook joy.

So this got me thinking: Where does joy come from? I started asking everyone I knew, and even people I just met on the street, about the things that brought them joy. On the subway, in a café, on an airplane, it was, “Hi, nice to meet you. What brings you joy?” I felt like a detective. I was like, “When did you last see it? Who were you with? What color was it? Did anyone else see it?” I was the Nancy Drew of joy.

(Laughter)

And after a few months of this, I noticed that there were certain things that started to come up again and again and again. They were things like cherry blossoms and bubbles … swimming pools and tree houses … hot air balloons and googly eyes –

(Laughter)

and ice cream cones, especially the ones with the sprinkles. These things seemed to cut across lines of age and gender and ethnicity. I mean, if you think about it, we all stop and turn our heads to the sky when the multicolored arc of a rainbow streaks across it. And fireworks – we don’t even need to know what they’re for, and we feel like we’re celebrating, too. These things aren’t joyful for just a few people; they’re joyful for nearly everyone. They’re universally joyful. And seeing them all together, it gave me this indescribably hopeful feeling.

The sharply divided, politically polarized world we live in sometimes has the effect of making our differences feel so vast as to be insurmountable. And yet underneath it all, there’s a part of each of us that finds joy in the same things. And though we’re often told that these are just passing pleasures, in fact, they’re really important, because they remind us of the shared humanity we find in our common experience of the physical world.

But I still needed to know: What is it about these things that makes them so joyful? I had pictures of them up on my studio wall, and every day, I would come in and try to make sense of it. And then one day, something just clicked. I saw all these patterns: round things … pops of bright color … symmetrical shapes … a sense of abundance and multiplicity … a feeling of lightness or elevation. When I saw it this way, I realized that though the feeling of joy is mysterious and elusive, we can access it through tangible, physical attributes, or what designers call aesthetics, a word that comes from the same root as the Greek word “aísthomai,” which means, “I feel,” “I sense,” “I perceive.”

And since these patterns were telling me that joy begins with the senses, I began calling them “Aesthetics of Joy”; the sensations of joy. And in the wake of this discovery, I noticed something that as I walked around, I began spotting little moments of joy everywhere I went – a vintage yellow car or a clever piece of street art. It was like I had a pair of rose-colored glasses, and now that I knew what to look for, I was seeing it everywhere. It was like these little moments of joy were hidden in plain sight.

And at the same time, I had another realization, that if these are the things that bring us joy, then why does so much of the world look like this?

(Laughter)

Why do we go to work here? Why do we send our kids to schools that look like this? Why do our cities look like this? And this is most acute for the places that house the people that are most vulnerable among us: nursing homes, hospitals, homeless shelters, housing projects. How did we end up in a world that looks like this?

We all start out joyful, but as we get older, being colorful or exuberant opens us up to judgment. Adults who exhibit genuine joy are often dismissed as childish or unserious or self-indulgent, and so we hold ourselves back from joy, and we end up in a world that looks like this.

But if the aesthetics of joy can be used to help us find more joy in the world around us, then couldn’t they also be used to create more joy? I spent that last two years scouring the planet, looking for different ways that people have answered this question.

And this led me to the work of the artist Arakawa and the poet Madeline Gins, who believed that these kinds of environments are literally killing us. And so they set out the create an apartment building that they believed would reverse aging. And this is it.

(Laughter)

(Applause)

It’s a real place, just outside Tokyo. I spent a night there, and it’s a lot.

(Laughter)

The floors undulate, so you don’t end up walking around so much as kind of bouncing around the apartment, and there are bright colors in every direction. I’m not sure I left any younger, but it’s as if, by trying to create an apartment that would make us feel youthful, they ended up creating one that was joyful. And yes, this is a bit much for everyday life, but it made me wonder: What about the rest of us? How do we bring these ideas back into the real world?

So I started finding people who were doing just that. For example, this hospital, designed by the Danish artist Poul Gernes. Or these schools, transformed by the non-profit Publicolor. What’s interesting is that Publicolor has heard from school administrators who say that attendance improves, graffiti disappears and kids actually say they feel safer in these painted schools. And this aligns with research conducted in four countries, which shows that people working in more colorful offices are actually more alert, more confident and friendlier than those working in drab spaces.

Why would this be the case? Well, as I started to trace back our love of color, I found that some researchers see a connection to our evolution. Color, in a very primal way, is a sign of life, a sign of energy. And the same is true of abundance. We evolved in a world where scarcity is dangerous, and abundance meant survival. So, one confetto – which happens to be the singular of confetti, in case you were wondering –

(Laughter)

isn’t very joyful, but multiply it, and you have a handful of one of the most joyful substances on the planet. The architect Emmanuelle Moureaux uses this idea in her work a lot. This is a nursing home she designed, where she uses these multicolored spheres to create a feeling of abundance. And what about all those round things I noticed? Well, it turns out neuroscientists have studied this, too.

They put people into fMRI machines, and they showed them pictures of angular objects and round ones. And what they found is that the amygdala, a part of the brain associated in part with fear and anxiety, lit up when people looked at angular objects, but not when they looked at the round ones. They speculate that because angles in nature are often associated with objects that might be dangerous to us, that we evolved an unconscious sense of caution around these shapes, whereas curves set us at ease.

You can see this in action in the new Sandy Hook Elementary School. After the mass shooting there in 2012, the architects Svigals + Partners knew that they needed to create a building that was secure, but they wanted to create one that was joyful, and so they filled it with curves. There are waves running along the side of the building, and these squiggly canopies over the entryway, and the whole building bends toward the entrance in a welcoming gesture.

Each moment of joy is small, but over time, they add up to more than the sum of their parts. And so maybe instead of chasing after happiness, what we should be doing is embracing Joy and finding ways to put ourselves in the path of it more often. Deep within us, we all have this impulse to seek out joy in our surroundings. And we have it for a reason. Joy isn’t some superfluous extra. It’s directly connected to our fundamental instinct for survival. On the most basic level, the drive toward joy is the drive toward life.

The Deadly Effect of Being Perfect / How to Prevent Cancer by Eric Jensen (excellent)

The Love of God is perfect.

The Deadly Effect
of Being Perfect

“Have no fear of perfection
– you’ll never reach it.”

Salvador Dali

I constantly remind myself, and others,
of the dangers of being
a perfectionist.
To strive for perfection is to never be satisfied.
And importantly, to never be Happy.
Endeavoring to be perfect can easily become
a deadly double-edged sword.

This is my favorite photo of R. J. He is showing off his new collar!

This is my favorite photo of R. J.
He is showing off his new collar!
He is another perfect gift.

Trying to always be perfect is pursuing the worst in us, that part that tells us nothing is ever good enough.

I have found one of the best antidotes to the unnatural inclination toward perfection is simple. Stop thinking about it and give your life, your labor and your love to others. Recognize that Love is the condition in which
the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

An antidote, by the way,
is a substance which can counteract a form of poisoning.
The term ultimately derives from the Greek αντιδιδοναι antididonai, “given against”. Antidote is the best term to use, in my opinion, to better understand what we are really coping with.
For you see,
perfectionism is a form of poisoning.
The expectation of perfection can poison the Spirit of a Child.
Yes, it can lead to death,
and has
many millions of times.

Allow me to mention, again, the horrifying statistic involving our precious children that enroll in a College or University.

Statistics on College suicides has tripled since the 1950s and suicide is currently the second most common cause of death among college students, second only to traffic accidents.
1 in 12 college students has actually made a suicide plan
at some point.
For more see: youngadults.about.com

It is unbelievable, but tragically true. And suicide, typically, does not discriminate based on age, race, gender, or sexual orientation. But in this country it does discriminate. Suicide rates are inordinately high for our young, vulnerable and emotional distressed and stressed out children. For middle and high school age youth (ages 12-18), suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death.

In ages 10-14, we have seen an alarming 128% increase in suicides since 1980, making it the third leading cause of death for that age group according to the Jason Foundation – see: http://jasonfoundation.com/youth-suicide/facts-stats/

More teenagers and young adults
die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.

Come on Folks,
WAKE UP!

Each day in our nation,
there are an average of over 5,400 attempts by young people grades 7-12. My dear friends, these are NOT just numbers,
they are our children.

War deaths in Afghanistan number over 2,100 young Americans, lost since the U.S. entered that conflict in 2003. But most people are unaware that a much greater loss of young lives occurs
every year
on this nation’s college campuses.

Yes,
we are effectively at war,
in our own country,
with what causes the death
of many more young Americans.
And the sooner we realize that it is a war,
and one that we are losing,
the sooner we will find hope for the many thousands
who desperately need Hope.
They are the children of our deepest love.
They are the sons and daughters of us all.
They are my children.
And they are your children.

Folks, we need to admit our mistakes.
We need to take responsibility.

We need to love each other enough to see the light of our neglectful transgressions. We need to stop pretending that we are doing what is right. We have failed so many of our deeply loved children, by not having the courage to say no. Say NO to outdated and oppressive teaching methodologies. Say NO to antiquated and overly stressful and unnecessary assessment strategies that place so much stress on children that they simply stop breathing. Say NO to anyone who expects our children to be perfect. Shout No. And then, by God, go out into this world and do something about it.

And what has Dr. A been up to?And what has
Dr. A
been up to?

My friends,
there is simply too much stress placed upon our young, sensitive, vulnerable children. And what have you gained, if your honor roll child no longer exists. The only thing to be gained from such tragic loss is knowledge – truly sad knowing, and deep, everlasting regret.

We now have the wisdom, garnered from an unimaginable price paid by so very many children, to know that a precious child means far more to us than a crippled letter of the alphabet printed upon a piece of really dumb looking paper.

LeVonna and I have come to the realization that such artificial contrivances as report cards and grades, are highly superficial and deplorably subjective. Our state government (that’s us, Folks, you know – WE the people!) is responsible for adding even more unnecessary stress through mandated testing. And, importantly, these man-made artificial contrivances can become highly destructive of fragile self-esteem and of Life itself. And the truth is, they are really meaningless, in the grand scheme of things. But, on the bright side, corporate profits are up, as they have effectively lobbied to market these very expensive examinations.

By the way, Martin Carnoy, at Stanford University
and Richard Rothstein of the Economic Policy Institute
examined test series over the last decade.

An analysis of international tests suggests
students in the U.S. are not lagging behind
their peers in other countries.
Based on their analysis, the researchers found that average low,
partly because a disproportionately greater share of US students
comes from disadvantaged social class groups.

My friends,
this is part of the price we pay for living in a vibrant democracy.
We educate and test EVERYONE.
Many other countries test ONLY those that are not screened out and placed in fast-track vocational programs. If you are not bright enough,
off you go to the factory!
And guess what,
these students are not included in tests
that compare the U. S. with other nations.

Based on analysis,
these researchers found that average U.S. scores
are low partly because a disproportionately greater share of US students comes from disadvantaged social class groups.
(Remember, we include EVERYONE in our testing.)

The analysis also shows how errors in selecting sample populations of test-takers and arbitrary choices regarding test content contribute to results that appear to show U.S. students lagging.

Folks,
the UNFAIR and highly publicized comparative results create panic and stupidity in response to a very unreal scenario.
The results can be abhorrently devastating to your child,
who is NOT doing poorly in comparison.
The stress placed upon the teachers, administrators and your child
is unwarranted, and many times, destructive.
It is dangerous
and contributes to very deadly atmosphere
that pervades academia.
We now live in a dangerously delusional place.
And only the truth shall set us
free.

Remember the TECAT testing fiasco – the infamous Texas Examination of Current Administrators and Teachers. It was a test of basic literacy given to Texas teachers in 1980’s. This test, seen as politically essential, was intended to raise the public esteem of teachers by weeding out incompetents. Teachers expended massive effort in reviewing basic skills and drilling on the test format
(yes, the format of all things, and totally useless in this life
or the hereafter).

The focus in our public schools, at the time, was drawn AWAY from teaching and placed entirely upon preparation for this test.
99% of the 210,000 who took the test had passed.
And we lost thousands of experienced vocational education teachers, special education-teachers and others who were over represented among the failures. The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled it an UNFAIR TEST.
This, so called, literacy test, it ruled,
discriminated against teachers who were black or over 40.

I recall one very dear and deeply loved third grade teacher, with over thirty years of experience, who was so nervous that she could not cope with the stress. It was over three decades ago when she took her last test in college, at Texas Wesleyan University. I was her Principal and found her to be not only highly competent, but very, very loving and deeply dedicated to every child. The students in her class were privileged to be in the life-affirming, warm and loving environment she created for them. I attended her funeral shortly after she lost her employment and all hope. I cried for weeks. This was yet another example of an ill-conceived assessment program with deadly consequences.

Ed. Note:
Not ONE
state legislator
attended her funeral.

Yes,
it was another testing fiasco
that slapped thousands of educators in the face.
It devastated the lives of precious, dedicated veteran educators
– people that our kids needed in their shop classes, elementary classes and special education programs.
What a horrible experience for everyone.
It scarred educators so much
that it was never repeated.

Thank God!

And all it accomplished, other than spending our money in a cruel and unwise manner, was to leave the landscape of so many dedicated and experienced educator’s lives in ruin. What a way to appreciate those precious people who chose a life of near poverty (yes, some teachers received food stamps to survive) in order to help our children.

But,
we had people who needed to get re-elected,
regardless of the cost.

Remember folks,

your vote

is the single most valuable thing you possess!
When you place someone in control of your life, and the lives of your precious children, by giving them your vote – make certain that they possess the qualities of being truly Human.
If compassion and common sense have not been
the hallmark of their life,
vote for someone else.
It is that simple.

I have a suggestion for you.

Please take the last report card you received and tack it to the wall. Throw darts at it until it has so many holes in it that you can see the light of day through it (another way of saying – the truth).

Now,
when you have put enough holes in this byproduct of an
ill-conceived, panic laden, distortion of reality,  you will realize that it shall never do your child much good. After all, it is not really accurate and can convey negative connotations that are truly
harmful.

These reports are are so subjective they are not really telling you much of anything, at all. But, you got in some good practice throwing darts. I also recommend the same for those self-destructive and illusory state exam results. You know, the ones that have resulted in closing entire schools, while stroking the egos of a few politicians.

Oh my God!
Please forgive us.
And hand me another dart.

If
you really want to give your child an assessment,

give him or her a huge hug at the end of day,

and tell the one you cherish just how much he or she is loved by you. Take the time to say everything you ever wanted to tell your child, each and every single day. Let them know that they are the PERFECT gift from God. And they need not even try to improve upon such perfection. Now that is a genuine and heart-felt  assessment.
And it is one worth giving.

And if your really feel compelled to have a written report card, write

“I LOVE YOU”

on a piece of paper, fold in half and hand it to your child.

I asked that you not use so much eye makeup.

I asked that you not use
so much eye makeup.

The Love of God is perfect.

And the Gift He has given you, in a child of His, is all you need and all you shall ever need. Please, do not even think about asking for more. That would truly be an affront to God. Please do not insult and offend the One who has given you a Perfect Gift in the form of His precious child.

And please, don’t allow your child to be given contrived, superficial, highly subjective grades for anything. Do not allow some pretentious, philosophically antiquated, overtly biased and over bearing teacher to do this.

Hey,
give your kid a puppy, or a smile, or the wink of an eye, or a big hug or a new toy or a good laugh or a trip to the back yard to play with him or her.

Squirt your kid, regardless of age, with the water hose, and then take off running. (Expect to get wet within the next 15 seconds. You cannot have more fun than a great water fight on a hot day).
Give your child the very firm knowledge
that whatever they do is good enough.
In fact, tell him or her that what you EXPECT
is not to be perfect.

No one is.
No one.

It would be abnormal to be perfect.
Trust me, you would not fit in with the rest of us.
A perfectly behaving child really doesn’t exist.
And, nothing good will ever come from it.

The only thing you should expect from your deeply loved child
is that he or she
be Happy.
If he or she is not, do something different.
If you think about what makes you happy,
you can make someone else happy.

It is that simple.

Yes,
it is important to graduate.
But in order to graduate, you must survive.
You must be alive.

And your child will, if you relax,
and Pray
and play with him or her
(by the way, more play results in a better preparation
for the game of life.
And, in many ways,
it is a really dumb game!).

If your child is being provided with an antiquated grade from a philosophically outdated school,
give the grade back to the teacher
,
where it belongs.
Yes,
just hand it back.
A superficial and subjective grade
truly belongs given back to the instructor.
Isn’t it a reflection upon how the child did
under the tutelage of that teacher?

Hand it back!

Ask why the teacher did not do a better job teaching your child.
And inform the teacher that you really don’t want or need his artificial appraisal of someone he will really never know.

Fear
can keep you, and your children, from living.
But with God on your side,
you need not fear anything or anyone
.
You are perfectly loved by your Creator.
In fact,
you are the very definition of perfection.

But perfection from human beings is unattainable.
The expectation of perfection from children is as deadly
as any toxin, infection, contagion or war.

So relax.

We are already perfect.
Now, you can say a simple prayer of Thanksgiving.
And give that perfectly wonderful child of yours
a big hug for me.

Hey,
give me one too!
I will be perfectly happy with that.

Goodnight.

Ahhhh!!   More highly subjective grades!

What would you be willing to do to have an extra day, month, or years with your loved ones?

Each year we take a break from the science of education and update you on two devastating diseases likely to impact you and/or your loved ones.

This month it is cancer; July will be about Alzheimer’s disease.

You need to know how to protect yourself and your family from cancer. Mostly because you CAN! Yes, most cancers are preventable and I’ll tell you how.

The Research

Cancer continues to be the #2 cause of death, next to #1 heart disease. This is disturbing considering how much money is spent on cancer research every year. In fact, when I type “cancer” into one of my favorite medical research engines I can find over 72,000 NEW research articles on cancer published in 2018 ALONE. And we are only halfway through the year! That is over 400 articles being published EVERY DAY just about cancer.

Scientists are learning a tremendous amount about cancer every day. But then why does the World Health Organization predict cancer incidents will more than DOUBLE in the next two decades? How is it that more than 14 MILLION people will receive a cancer diagnosis this year? I’ll tell you.

One explanation is that a lot of people aren’t paying attention to what the research is saying. Instead, they are relying on outdated assumptions or results from bad research that somehow got too much publicity.

For example, many believe that cancer is hereditary, or just a result of really bad luck. Turns out genetics and “bad luck” account for a very small percentage of all cancer diagnoses. Most cancers (depending on which type) have a shockingly low 2-10% heritability.

In fact, did you know that the heritability of breast cancer from your mother is a shockingly low 1.8%? This might sound surprisingly low. Let me explain how we might get fooled into thinking it is genetic, but in fact, it is a slew of environmental factors creating familial trends (Anand, et al., 2008).

Girls often grow up in the same house as their mother. They eat the same kinds of foods, breathe the same air, and get exposed to the same molds, toxins and noise stress. They might use the same cleaning products (bleaches, sprays, toxins, etc.), the same personal care products (creams, hair color, deodorant, toothpaste, etc.) and they can take on similar beliefs and attitudes. In short, females are often immersed in their mom’s environment. Because this is the environment they grow up in, they often continue these habits into adulthood. It is these lifestyle choices and environmental factors that lead to most familial trends in breast cancer, NOT genetics.

This is actually great news! This means that you and I have a CHOICE, to a large degree, when it comes to cancer. The majority of all CANCERS ARE PREVENTABLE! Then why are we still losing the war on cancer? Because some people (NOT you) are unwilling to make the adjustments to their lifestyle and environment to PREVENT most cancers.

Prevention is the way to go for many reasons. Typical cancer treatments are expensive and often painful. Although there are some new and promising alternatives, the most common ways cancer is treated are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. These require you to be cut open, poisoned, or burned, respectively. So, if some of the lifestyle changes outlined below sound unpleasant, just remember your alternatives.

Here are 5 lifestyle adjustments you can make to protect yourself from cancer. I think you’ll be surprised to learn how much money you are spending on things that are putting you at a GREATER RISK of cancer.

Five Ways To Save $$$ While Building
A Forcefield Against Cancer

1. Stop putting toxins IN your body
Below are some of the more common toxins you might be putting IN your body. Each one directly increases your risk of cancer. Which one is the easiest for you to eliminate (or at least reduce drastically) from your diet?

  • Tobacco – Using tobacco increases your risk of developing at least 14 types of cancer. It also accounts for about 25–30% of all deaths from cancer and 87% of deaths from lung cancer (Anand et al., 2008). If you have a habit of smoking, seek help and make a positive change in your life. You are worth it. Check out http://www.smokefree.gov for some extra support. And if you are wondering, e-cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, and water pipes (or bongs) may also cause cancer.
  • Excessive alcohol – Are you part of the 70% of Americans that do not recognize alcohol consumption as a risk factor for cancer? If so, consider yourself now informed (Heymach et al., 2018). If you are having more than 2-4 drinks a WEEK, you might want to consider cutting back. Like most things, a little bit probably isn’t going to hurt you but too much is putting you at greater risk.
  • Sugar (candy, soda, sugary flavored coffees, baked goods, etc.) – Cancer LOVES sugar. It feeds off of it, literally, and helps the cancer to grow. Did you know doctors give patients pure glucose linked to a radioactive dye to locate tumors in the body? Those sugar-loving cancer cells, suck up the sugary marker and thus glow brighter than the other tissue, helping the scanning device to see the cancer cells.
  • White bread and white rice – These (along with sugar) all raise your blood sugar levels, and you produce extra insulin in the pancreas. (Asians have a gene that prevents this.) Diabetes is a known dietary cancer risk (Anand, Nath & Saraswathy, 2014).

All of the substances listed above are addictive substances. Therefore, cutting them from your diet will not be as easy as cutting Brussels sprouts, even though it could potentially save you hundreds of dollars a month. I’m not going try to tell you it will be easy to stop smoking, give up soda or your morning sugary cup of joe, or whatever your favorite vice is. It will be hard.

But you know how to do hard things. You do it every day. You are a teacher! Every day you do things much harder than say NO to something listed above. Harness your teacher superpowers and take care of your body.

2. Stop putting toxins ON your body

Do NOT rely on the government to tell you what you eat (the food pyramid changes every few years and it’s still wrong) or to help you make safe choices for you. PAY attention to the ingredients that interact with your body, especially shampoo, hair conditioner, hair coloring products, deodorant, face cleaning products, soaps and makeup products.

Stop buying things that contain “Parabens.” They’re a family of chemicals used in various personal care products and have long been linked to cancer. They disrupt estrogen function (Harvey, 2003). As an alternative, buy from the companies Arm & Hammer (“Essentials Natural Deodorant”) and Tom’s (“Natural Deodorant” and toothpaste) who both sell healthy products. You’ve just started to lower your risks.

One-time usage does not put you at risk. But using slightly dangerous products over time is a higher-risk behavior. You can save yourself a lot of money by eliminating toxic products that don’t fall in the “need” category as well.

The Food and Drug Administration has been sitting on damning evidence from government research studies since July 2009, showing over 80% of all sunscreen products contain known carcinogens. We’ll get to what to avoid in just a moment.

3. Reduce your stress

What does your stress level have to do with cancer? More than you might think. Chronic stress impairs your body’s capacity to fight inflammation. If you are an over-scheduled adult, or have an over-scheduled child, do yourself a favor and aim to under-schedule yourself and your family. Cut back on an activity or two. Not only will this save you more money, but it will create space and time in your life for things that will contribute to your cancer force field:

  • Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Breathing exercising
  • Appreciating nature
  • Spending time with loved ones
  • Mindfulness

4. Exercise

Researchers have long linked exercise with lower breast cancer risk for women past menopause, believing it works partly by lowering the estrogen levels. Higher estrogen levels can raise breast cancer risk. Find a physical activity you love and commit to doing it 3-6 times a week for at least 20 minutes.

And then consider some of these other habits that could help you move your body more:

  • If it’s 1-3 floors in a building, take the stairs down to the lobby.
  • Instead of driving around for an extra 3 minutes waiting for the best parking spot to come available, spend those minutes walking the parking lot.
  • Take the stairs instead of the escalator at the mall or airport. My rule of thumb is unless I’m carrying more than 20 lbs, take the stairs!

5. Get your vitamin D

The most common cause of skin cancer is the sun. You probably already knew that.

You probably also know that vitamin D (that you get from the sun) is great for your physical and emotional health. So, what is one to do? Stay out of the sun? Go out in the sun? Read on – I’ll tell you

There’s no risk of skin cancer at short exposures (15 minutes or less) and a HUGE upside. The Vitamin D helps facilitate healing from illnesses and helps metabolize the potassium and calcium needed for strong bones (Lappe, Travers-Gustafson, Davies, Recker, & Heaney, 2007). If you want to stay outside longer, do intervals of sun, then shade. It is the continuous sun exposure that stacks up the radiation, not the intervals.

When you use sunscreen, use the lowest number that can work for you. Most people think they’re protecting themselves better by using a higher numbered sunscreen. But the higher the number, the more risk you’re taking with toxic chemicals.

The higher SPF is also a waste of money… Sunscreens with SPF 8 block 87% of UVB rays (the ones that burn your skin). SPF 30 blocks 97%. SPF 100 sunscreens block 99%. In any case, read the ingredients on what you buy.
Certain sunscreen ingredients may be potentially carcinogenic or have other health risks (anything with oxybenzone, benzophenone, octocrylene, or octylmethoxycinnamate.)

Please be a healthy label-reader: Avoid personal care products with retinyl palmitate and oxybenzone.

Please do not buy products that may increase cancer risk. And remember, a little sun is good; too much is dangerous.

How to spend the money you just saved?

With the adjustments above, you can potentially save yourself hundreds of dollars a month. With that extra money, might I suggest a few things to stock your fridge and shelves with to help prevent cancer:

  • Foods packed with antioxidants: Antioxidants include enzymes or other organic substances, such as sunlight, vitamin or food sources that are capable of counteracting the damaging effects of oxidation. Stock up on sweet potatoes, watermelon, colored berries (like blueberries… frozen is OK), cold water (NOT farm raised) fatty fish (like salmon), colorful vegetables (such as peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, etc.), green tea, olive oil, coffee, dark chocolate (60-65% is best), plain Greek yogurt, mangos, and papayas.
  • Folic acid: Folic acid is known to reduce cancer risks. That includes the following dark greens (in order): spinach, collard, turnip and mustard greens, broccoli and asparagus, papaya, beans, peas, lentils and avocado (Willett, 2006). When you slowly reduce, and then eliminate the products made by humans (chips, cookies, bread, candies, etc.) and focus on nature-made foods, health often improves. Keep in mind, if it’s dark and bitter, it’s better for your body.
  • Curcumin: Turmeric’s active compound is a yellow spice, called curcumin. This spice is commonly used in Indian foods. In one recent study, two researchers concluded, “Curcumin can selectively modulate multiple cell signaling pathways linked to inflammation and to the survival, growth, invasion, angiogenesis, and metastasis of cancer cells.” (Hasima & Aggarwal, 2016).  Studies have shown that curcumin even kills cancer stem cells, the “mother” cells that control the growth and spread of cancer cell colonies (Prasad, 2015). You can buy curcumin capsules in most drug stores and supermarkets. I buy mine from Amazon (VitaLabs as Curcumin C3 Complex).
  • Graviola: Annona Muricata (also known as Soursop, Graviola, and guanabana), is an amazing evergreen plant found in tropical and subtropical climates. Multiple studies have substantiated its effects as being anticancer, anticonvulsant, anti-arthritic, antiparasitic, hepatoprotective and antidiabetic. This fruit extract may be purchased from Amazon as Biotech Nutritions Graviola (Paul, Gnanam, Jayadeepa, Arul, 2013; Antony, Vijayan, 2016; Moghadamtousi, Fadaeinasab, Nikzad, Mohan, Ali, Kadir, 2015).

Cancer prevention requires serious lifestyle commitments to healthy living. Those changes include smoking cessation, increased ingestion of fruits and vegetables, moderate-low use of alcohol, caloric restriction, sufficient exercise, avoidance of over-exposure to sunlight, minimal meat consumption, use of whole grains, and use of vaccinations, getting sufficient vitamin D, avoiding toxic personal care products, cutting the sugar, use of curcumin, Graviola, and getting regular check-ups with fewer radiation doses.

That’s a lot.

So, first, take a moment and acknowledge yourself for whichever of these are already a part of your personal lifestyle. You are already helping your body stay cancer free. Now, pick one area you know you can improve on. Make a change and stick with it. When it becomes a comfortable habit, make another improvement. You are worth it!

The Biggest news in cancer TREATMENT for 2017-18

The most promising breakthroughs in cancer treatment revolve around gene editing, immunotherapy, and proton therapy.

Gene editing is maturing. You may have heard of the gene-editing technique simply called CRISPR. It works like a pair of scissors to cut DNA, inserting or reordering bits of genetic code with remarkable, science-fiction-like results: CRISPR can help create mosquitoes that don’t transmit malaria, or be used in humans, to battle 50 untreatable diseases, including cancer. How? You can remove the patients’ immune cells, edit the genes, and reinsert the weaponized cells into the body to hunt and kill cancer. This is not science fiction; it has already succeeded in test patients.

Another option is immunotherapy, which “activates” certain parts of your immune system to fight disease. Immune cells cruise around your body looking for “foreign molecules”. Once they find these foreigners, a certain class of immune cells (cytotoxic T cells) attack and eliminate the foreigners. Unfortunately, cancer has several ways it can hide from immune cells. However, scientists have discovered ways to genetically re-engineer a patient’s immune T cells to detect the previously hidden cancer cells. The game of hide and seek is over.

But, there’s a glitch. Making immune-cell treatments for every patient is expensive and time-consuming. Commonly, doctors can’t use a patient’s own T cells because there are not enough healthy ones for them to tinker with. Instead, they use someone else’s. This increases time and expense. So while it shows promise, immunotherapy has some limitations.

Proton therapy is essentially an improved form of radiation. At high energy, protons (positively charged particles) can destroy cancer cells. Traditional radiation treatment has been shown to be quite successful, but at the cost of damaging healthy tissue near the cancerous tumor. This can create additional health challenges. With proton therapy, radiation can be deposited directly in the tumor without exposing nearby healthy tissue with the radiation.

The world of science is making progress with cancer treatments. It is time for YOU to do your part and make progress with cancer preventions. How can you help yourself? Take hold of your health and commit to making at least one change today.
