Study: Purple Potatoes Help Prevent Colon Cancer

by PAUL FASSA

Colorectal or colon cancer is the number two cancer killer in the country. Of course, this is according to mainstream oncology. Many who have been stricken with colon cancer have survived in healthy fashion using “alternative” therapies.

Chris Wark of “Chris Beat Cancer” is a visible example. He encourages others who beat cancer without losing their health to the normal cut (surgery), burn (radiation therapy) and poison (chemotherapy) to contribute their success stories to his “Chris Beat Cancer” website.

But the best way to beat colon cancer is to prevent it by not indulging in a standard American diet (SAD), moderately exercising, and not stressing over all the stuff of modern living.

There is also a particular food that is powerful in preventing colon cancer, which has been proven by in vitro (labcultures) and in vivo (animal or human studies) – purple potatoes.

The Once Demonized Source of Fat That Kills Cancer and Treats Alzheimer’s

Cancer Cococnut OilCoconut oil was victimized during that era of erroneous dogma that demonized saturated fats, including butter, and created the unhealthy trans-fatty acid hydrogenated unsaturated fat industry, which included margarine. Saturated fats have been resurrected from the trash bin of forbidden foods over the past decade or so with proven health merits.

 

 

Now that the fog of junk science dogma has lifted, more and more health conscious folks are finding saturated fats, especially coconut oil, are beyond just safe. They are healthy and medicinal. Several published but unpublicized studies have been conducted and are in progress regarding palm or coconut oil’s medicinal properties.

One of the most profound studies that you probably haven’t read or heard about involves cancer. It was conducted by Australian researchers and published in the January 2014 journal Chemotherapy under “experimental chemotherapy”. It was an in vitro (test tube, petri dish) study on human colon or colorectal cancer cells.

Oregano and Thyme Shows Promise Against Colon Cancer

Most colorectal cancers begin with polyps—small clumps of cells that attach to the intestine walls. While polyps usually start out benign, they can turn into cancer over time.

7 Reasons to Get More Magnesium

7 Reasons to Get More Magnesium

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body, and is the reason why vegetables are green.  But few people fully appreciate the importance of this miraculous mineral. 

The human genome project reveals that 3,751 human proteins have binding sites for magnesium.[i]  And so far we know this one essential mineral activates over 350 biochemical processes in the body to keep things flowing.

Plants are green because they contain the light-harvesting molecule chlorophyll which bears a striking resemblance to human hemoglobin (with the difference that the latter contains an oxygen-binding iron atom and not magnesium).

Here are just seven good reasons to get more magnesium-rich foods in your diet today.

1. Prevent Migraines.

Garlic Extract Prevents Colorectal Cancer

 

Recently published research reveals that garlic extract can help protect against colorectal cancer, the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S., and the third leading cause of cancer death. In 2014 alone, an estimated 137,000 people were diagnosed.

Using rats induced to develop colorectal cancer, researchers aimed to see what, if any, influence aged garlic extract (AGE) had on the growth of malignant cells.

The researchers noted that AGE decreased the number of aberrant crypt foci—abnormal glands in the lining of the colon and rectum. These irregular clusters of cells are the precursors to polyps, and often the first sign of the potential development of cancer. AGE also suppressed the division and spread of cancerous cells.

The researchers concluded, “These findings suggest that AGE has an antitumor effect through suppression of cell proliferation.”

Older man is beating stage IV colon cancer with Essiac tea

cancerColon cancer is third most common cancer for both men and women, and it’s the second leading cancer cause of death in the USA. The usual treatments involve surgery and/or chemotherapy.

With surgery, there’s a good chance of being saddled with a colostomy bag or ileostomy or ostomy bag worn externally to allow one’s feces to be excavated into the bag without the missing parts of the lower colon. (more…)

Magnesium Lowers Colorectal Cancer Risk

Magnesium Lowers Colorectal Cancer Risk

An astounding 70% or more of Americans are deficient in the essential mineral magnesium.  Low levels can have deadly effects.

Epidemiologic studies have suggested that low magnesium may be associated with higher rates of colorectal cancer among other diseases.  Now a meta-analysis confirms that higher magnesium intakes are associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer and especially colon cancer.

Researchers from Soochow University in China analyzed eight prospective studies covering 338,979 participants. Their results, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found the highest average intake of magnesium was associated with an 11% reduction in colorectal cancer risk compared to the lowest average intake.

In addition, the researchers found that for every 50 mg per day increase in magnesium, colon cancer was reduced by 7%.

The results are consistent with an earlier meta-analysis by Imperial College London and Wageningen University finding for every 100 mg increase in magnesium, colorectal cancer decreased by 13%.

Unfortunately, only about 20% of Americans get the recommended daily magnesium intake of 420 mg for men or 320 mg for women.  And a deficiency can be debilitating.

Magnesium participates in over 300 known biochemical reactions in your body.  Recent research from the human genome project reveals that 3,751 human proteins have binding sites for magnesium.

Magnesium supports harmonious flow within various body systems.  Without it things get stuck.  This can show up as constipation and other digestive problems, irregularities in menstrual flow and reproductive health, muscle spasms, nocturnal leg cramps, and migraine headaches.

The health benefits of magnesium are far greater than previously imagined.  This one essential mineral keeps your heart rhythm steady…promotes normal blood pressure…helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function…supports a healthy immune system…regulates blood sugar…and keeps your memory strong.

It’s not difficult to boost magnesium levels with whole foods.  One of the richest sources of magnesium is high quality chocolate. Dark chocolate has a whopping 176 mg of magnesium in a 3.5 ounce bar.  In fact, if you crave chocolate your body may be telling you it’s low in magnesium.

Other high magnesium foods include:

  • Dried seaweeds
  • Dark leafy greens (especially spinach and Swiss chard)
  • Broccoli
  • Beans
  • Whole grains (especially brown rice and quinoa)
  • Almonds, cashews, and filberts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Lentils
  • Avocados
  • Spirulina and chlorella
