Detoxification is the process in which the body eliminates or neutralizes toxic substances. Toxins come from various sources including the air, diet, drugs, alcohol, smoking, as well as metabolic by-products. Thus, lifestyle factors play a significant role in the accumulation of toxins. The build-up of toxins results in cellular damage, and eventually chronic disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that almost half of American adults have at least one chronic disease. Chronic diseases including heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems in the U.S.1
The body utilizes several routes of detoxification including the skin, lungs, kidneys, liver, and intestines. What’s important to keep in mind is that there are two pathways by which the body detoxifies harmful substances and it’s essential to support both of these pathways in order to detoxify effectively. Supporting only one of the detoxification pathways can actually do more harm than good. (more…)
A brand new study – just released online this week – offers timely support to the heavily criticized USDA Dietary Guidelines of 2010. Those proposed guidelines continue to promote a grain-rich, low-protein diet. (more…)
There is an epic battle being waged over a common food that you and your children likely are exposed to every single day.
In one corner are those who proudly profess the almost miracle-like qualities of this food, with boastful claims about how it can do everything from curing cancer to preventing heart disease and even menopause.
In the other corner there is a persnickety bunch who retorts that this food is anything but a “miracle.” They claim it can lead to thyroid disease, actually CAUSE cancer, hamper your immune system, destroy your brain, make you infertile, and even turn males into females! (more…)
It turns out Mom was right.
If broccoli or Brussels sprouts were frequently the last bits left on your plate as a child, Mom had good reason to encourage you to clean your plate and eat your vegetables.
Broccoli and Brussels sprouts belong to the Brassica or cruciferous family, which also includes cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, kale, kohlrabi, mustard greens, rutabaga, turnips, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, arugula, horseradish, radish, wasabi, and watercress. This family of bitter greens and roots is quickly becoming the focus of scientists and cancer specialists alike due to the high amounts of glucosinolates that it contains. (more…)
Breast cancer is a cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. Risk factors for breast cancer include gender, age, family history, defective genes, early onset of menstruation, late menopause and late childbearing. Breast cancer is about ninety percent due to genetic abnormalities that happen as a result of the aging process and the “wear and tear” of life in general.
A study published in the journal Breast Cancer investigated the effects of an herbal formula on breast health in women not taking hormonal contraceptives or supplements. (more…)
A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has revealed that the popular cancer drug Avastin (bevacizumab) raises patients’ risk of death by up to 350 percent when combined with chemotherapy. Designed to stop the production of new blood vessels in the body, and thus the spread of cancer cells, Avastin is also responsible for causing blood clots in legs and lungs when used as directed.

For several years now I’ve been telling you about the slow-but-sure advances in research of intravenous ascorbic acid (IAA) to treat cancer. And during those years we’ve seen a growing acceptance of the KNOWN FACT that mega-doses of vitamin C effectively kill some types of cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.
Imagine what that means! This is potentially a natural, affordable “chemotherapy” that makes patients feel better, rather than reducing their poor bodies to shrunken shells.
Now imagine what that means to Big Pharma and their BFFs at the FDA. (more…)
The Cancer Industry suppresses the overwhelming empirical and laboratory evidence of alternative, natural cancer cures. And there are several MDs and mainstream scientists aware of the Cancer Industry`s failure to win the war on cancer, especially by using chemotherapy. Their voices are muzzled also.
Yet, the common public perception is that alternative natural cures are quackery, and only Big Pharma shills and the AMA administrators of poison can help you if you have cancer. There appears to be a combination of factors involved with this duplicity, especially greed and willful ignorance. (more…)
