Prevent Breast Cancer With These Four Foods

The U.S. spends billions of dollars every year on cancer research, with breast cancer receiving the lion’s share of the funding. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute, funding for breast cancer research in 2012 reached a staggering $602 million—twice as much as that allocated for lung cancer research.1

While some research on prevention measures exists, many of the studies on breast cancer focus on genetics, diagnosis and treatment—including novel drug/chemotherapy regimens, stem cell therapy and antibody and nanotechnology treatments.

However, doesn’t it make sense to do everything in your power to protect yourself from getting a horrible disease like cancer? Prevention is a whole lot easier than grueling treatments after diagnosis.

Fortunately, you don’t have to look far to find some of the best breast cancer preventives. In fact, most are probably already in your kitchen.

10 of The Most Functional Foods In The World Which Destroy Cancer Cells

Many specific proteins, enzymes and coding within our immune system may be activated to kill cancer cells. There is no such thing as a cancer cell that cannot be defeated by the human immune system. The difference between cancers that grow and those that don’t are what we put in our bodies to prohibit their growth. Proteins can be rendered ineffective if cells experience uncontrolled growth though damage or mutations to DNA or if toxins through food and chemical pollution override the immune system’s natural function. Here are 10 functional foods which suppresses tumour development during immune surveillance in the human body.

5_foods_tnf2Scientists have found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein which boosts cancer cell survival. Chemotherapy has been proven to cause cancer cells to interact with nearby tumour cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy. Where conventional medical treatment fails cancer patients, natural foods succeed.

In a study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, scientists identified a molecule, known as TIC10, which activates a protein that helps fight the disease. The protein, called TRAIL (tumour-necrosis-factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) suppresses tumour development it can actually cross the blood-brain barrier, which separates the main circulatory system from the brain.

9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

Even when our food choices aren’t the best, herbs and spices do more than just improve taste.  They give any meal a nutrition boost.  And according to a new study they may even reverse the damage from an unhealthy meal.

Researchers from Penn State University cooked up coconut chicken, cheese bread and a dessert biscuit for six men. The subjects were aged 30 to 65 and overweight but otherwise healthy.  On one day the meal was served plain.  On another day researchers added two tablespoons of a blend of nine herbs and spices to the meal.

After each meal the researchers drew blood from the subjects every 30 minutes for four hours.  They found that antioxidant activity in the blood increased 13% after the spicy meal compared to the plain meal.

The spices and herbs also decreased post-meal insulin levels by 21% and triglyceride levels in the blood by as much as 31%.  That in turn could reduce heart disease risk.

7 Ways To Prevent and Even Reverse Heart Disease With Nutrition

7 Ways To Prevent and Even Reverse Heart Disease With Nutrition

You can reverse heart disease with nutrition, according to a growing body of scientific research.

Considering that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the developed world, anything that can prevent cardiac mortality, or slow or even reverse the cardiovascular disease process, should be of great interest to the general public.

Sadly, millions of folks are unaware of the extensive body of biomedical literature that exists supporting the use of natural compounds for preventing and even reversing heart disease.

Instead, they spend billions buying highly toxic cholesterol-lowering pharmaceuticals with known cardiotoxicity, among 300 other proven side effects, simply because their doctor told them to do so.

So, with this in mind, let’s look at the biomedical literature itself.

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.”

Reduce high blood pressure with garlic

high blood pressure4Garlic can be used to reduce blood pressure levels in people with uncontrolled hypertension, even if they are already being unsuccessfully treated with medication, according to an Austrialian trial. Although garlic is known for a range of health benefits, this is one of the first conclusive studies into its cardiovascular benefits.

What does the study show?

The trial, which was undertaken by the University of Adelaide, involved 50 patients, all of whom were being treated for hypertension, but who still had high blood pressure despite their medication. The volunteers were divided into two groups. The first group was given four capsules of aged garlic every day for 12 weeks. The second group was given a placebo instead.

The results of the trial, which were published in the scientific journal Maturitas, showed that the systolic blood pressure of the group who took the garlic capsules was around 10mmHg lower than the group that took the placebo. (more…)

Suppressed science: Garlic proven to kill brain cancer cells without side effects

cancer First comes a guy curing his stage 4 prostate cancer with baking soda. Next a woman cures her cancer with carrot juice while some time ago a UK farmer cured his cancer with wheat grass juice. Now there’s an obscure study proving garlic kills brain cancer cells without side effects.There’s no money in any of that – only healing. Darn! How’s the cancer industry going to exploit cancer victims and create huge fund raising revenues if this type of news gets out?

A small group of researchers at Medical University of South Carolina discovered something that’s useful for anyone willing to properly consume lots of garlic. They discovered that certain organo-sulfur compounds in garlic do kill brain cancer cells without disturbing healthy cells.

But they did this in 2007! It didn’t get much mainstream press, if any. Did we miss something? Maybe Big Pharma is trying to figure out how to create those compounds synthetically to get a patent and pay the FDA for approval after offering dubious papers from sketchy trials.

Whether it’s useful for the cancer industry remains to be seen. But the results of this study haven’t received much if any attention from the mainstream press. Apparently, there wasn’t even a ripple within the medical establishment.

Instead of using the study to further explore natural methods of nipping brain cancer in the bud, the cancer industry encourages beginning “proven medical treatments” as early as possible. Treatments like surgery, radiation and chemotherapy offer 15 months or fewer of practicing efficient drool cup use before dying. But these “treatments” are proven money makers.

About that obscure garlic brain cancer study

Three researchers teamed up in South Carolina for an in vitro analysis of what three natural garlic compounds can do to brain cancer cells, specifically glioblastoma, the fastest growing brain cancer tumor common to adults. Two types of glioblastoma cancer cells were cultured, and three sulfur compounds from garlic were administered into the culture.

The compounds were diallyl sulfide (DAS), diallyl disulfide (DADS), and diallyl trisulfide (DATS). All three provided cytotoxic (cancer killing) effects, especially DATS, which “induced cell death via reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and a mitochondria-mediated pathway”.

These compounds are able to get through the blood brain barrier to induce cancer cell apoptosis and prevent future cell growth.

Interestingly, what’s implied from the background of the study abstract (sourced below) is that the protection against carcinogenesis provided by these garlic sulfur compounds was already known.

The researchers were attempting to determine the mechanics of how these compounds were so protective.

They found out how and more. They isolated the exact mechanics, detailed in the full study text below, and determined that these compounds are more than protective. They do what currently accepted brain cancer treatments are supposed to do but don’t, while leaving other healthy cells alone which those “standard of care” treatments also don’t.

It’s recommended that one peels open garlic cloves and exposes them to air for 15 minutes or so to release those compounds. Some even say crush them for more exposure, then consume them raw to get the full benefits. This may not seem inviting to most. But is sure beats a slow agonizing death with a drool cup.
