Astonishing Benefits of Cranberries

Cranberries are an amazing berry and should be considered a super food. Research presented in just the last year alone on what this little fruit offers is astonishing. The benefits that cranberries offer are far more than previously understood. No longer should cranberries be only relegated to urinary tract infection (UTI) support, a garnish dish at the Thanksgiving dinner table or the high sugar cocktail juice that your grandmother drinks. Amazing health benefits are wrapped up in this little berry.

Prostate Specific Antigen Affected by Fatty Acids and Coenzyme Q10

The British Journal of Nutrition reported in November 2012 that fatty acids and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) alter serum levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA). PSA is a protein produced by prostate cells. Elevated levels of PSA are associated with prostate issues such as prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and acute bacterial prostatitis.

The investigators evaluated 504 healthy men with serum PSA level of 2.5 ng/ml or lower. The subjects received daily supplementation with:

1. Omega-3 fatty acids, including 1.12 grams of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 0.72 grams of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) per capsule, (more…)

Stinging Nettle is effective in treating BPH, arthritis, and aids post-partum mothers

Many people can relate to the experience of brushing up against a stinging nettle plant in a pasture or meadow. The unforgettable chemical burn creates mean welts which can sting for a week. However, stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) has such healing capabilities that many of the newer green super-food manufacturers add it to their compounds. Nettle is high in vitamin A and C, and is chock full of minerals, especially calcium and iron. Research indicates that nettle is beneficial for benign prostate hyperplasia, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. Midwives love stinging nettle as a pregnancy herb. (more…)

New studies reveal caffeinated coffee protects against Alzheimer’s, diabetes, depression and prostate cancer

Recent research suggests that drinking caffeinated coffee daily may protect against developing Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, depression and more, according to reports from Science Daily. Animal studies at the University of Florida discovered an ingredient in coffee that interacts with caffeine and increases blood levels of granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF), a growth factor that that prevents the production of beta amyloid plaques, which are thought to be the causative factor in Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers reported that daily consumption of caffeniated coffee by middle-aged and elderly individuals markedly lessens the risk of developing the disease. (more…)

PSA tests don’t save lives

The best way to protect your prostate is to keep it far away from doctors who want to screen it — and even further from the surgeons who make a living off prostate cancer procedures.

Not long ago, this was considered a rogue approach.

Today, it’s mainstream science — and another study confirms again that all the screenings in the world don’t save lives.

Simply put, the government-funded study of 76,000 men who were tracked for 13 years finds that annual PSA tests don’t make a bit of difference in determining who lives and who dies. (more…)

Prostate cancer screening has zero benefit, concludes 20-year study

Don’t let anyone from the cancer industry lie to you about PSA screening: The test is completely bogus and offers zero improvement in your lifespan. That’s the conclusion from a 20-year study that followed over 9,000 men. After 20 years of follow-up, guess what the results were? No significant difference in the rate of death between those screened for prostate cancer versus those who weren’t.

In other words, prostate cancer screening is really a bogus test used to exploit men’s fear and recruit them into unnecessary and potentially harmful cancer treatments. That’s why the cancer industry uses the PSA test, of course: It’s a powerful recruiting tool! It scares men into agreeing to expensive, high-profit treatments which are then billed to their insurance companies, Medicaid or Medicare. (Gee, no wonder our health care system is bankrupting the nation…) (more…)
