9 health benefits of green tea

Green Tea NewsThe health benefits of green tea are (almost) endless. Cultivated for hundreds of years, green tea is loaded with antioxidants; saccharides (sugar); chlorophyll and some vitamins like, A, B1, B2, B3, C and E. Naturally, millions of people drink green tea for the health of it – but what does it really do for us?

1. A great way to prevent cancer

Research shows that green tea helps inhibit the growth of cancer cells and prevent cancers such as, pancreatic, prostate, breast, esophagieal, colorectal, stomach and lung cancer. A current analysis of 22 studies proved that drinking (2) cups of green tea per day can reduce the risk of lung cancer by 18 percent. (more…)

GUT WRENCHING! Tell FDA to remove toxin, making us sick, from food

sick-3

Rates of digestive diseases are rising—ranging from widespread digestive discomfort (“belly bloat,” “spastic colon,” Irritable Bowel Syndrome) to serious and sometimes life-threatening diseases such as ulcerative colitis and colon cancer.

For decades, scientists conducting laboratory animal experiments using the common food additive carrageenan have found higher rates of gastrointestinal inflammation, colitis-like disease, and even colon cancer.

Carrageenan is a convenient and unique food additive for the food industry, and selling carrageenan is a profitable enterprise for a handful of chemical corporations. For decades, these companies have spread misinformation—often, outright lies—about carrageenan’s safety.

Carrageenan can be found in many foods, even foods labeled “natural” and “organic.” It is widely used in dairy products (chocolate milk, whipping cream, ice cream, nonfat sour cream), frozen dinners, dairy alternatives (soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk), prepared poultry and cold cuts, nutritional drinks, and even infant formula.

And who has been more than willing to listen to the corporate scientists rather than to the scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health? That’s right: the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In June 2012, the FDA rejected a citizen petition by the nation’s preeminent publicly funded scientist and carrageenan expert, who formally requested that carrageenan be removed from our food supply.

Orthodox Cancer Treatments Don’t Treat Cancer

Most fine doctors like Dr. Ben Goldacre like to have all the available facts about a prescription drug before prescribing it. However, when it comes to pharmaceutical medicines, it’s nearly impossible to find real data, so doctors really never know the true dangers about the drugs they use.

Not only are they not sure about the side effects and the possibility of death but they are also not sure whether or not the drug will help the patient at all. In short, modern medicine is based on research fraud and we find doctors and medical officials, including the FDA, abandoning their public health mission by revolving everything they do and promote around pharmaceutical interests. Anything non-pharmaceutical in nature is patently condemned. (more…)

Tocotrienols May Help Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer is very difficult to treat.  Cancer drugs are notoriously ineffective and the other option of having the stomach removed creates many health problems.  Researchers tested gamma tocotrienol and found that it could significantly help kill stomach cancer when combined with chemo drugs that typically don’t work well.  Furthermore, gamma tocotrienol had specific properties of its own to reduce or help prevent stomach cancer.

Allium Vegetable Consumption Reduces Risk of Stomach Cancer.

Gastric cancer, commonly referred to as stomach cancer, can develop in any part of the stomach and may spread throughout the stomach and to other organs; particularly the esophagus, lungs, lymph nodes, and the liver. Stomach cancer causes about 800,000 deaths worldwide per year. Stomach cancer is often asymptomatic or causes only nonspecific symptoms in its early stages. By the time symptoms occur, the cancer has often reached an advanced stage, one of the main reasons for its poor prognosis. Infection by Helicobacter pylri is believed to be the cause of most stomach cancer while autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and various genetic factors are associated with increased risk levels.

Infection by Helicobacter pylri is believed to be the cause of most stomach cancer while autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and various genetic factors are associated with increased risk levels.

A meta-analysis published in the journal Gastroenterology reviewed the effects of allium vegetables (onion, garlic, shallots, leeks, chives, etc) on the risk of stomach cancer. Researchers included 19 case-control and two cohort studies with a total of 543,220 subjects. It was found that those who consumed large amounts of allium vegetables appeared to reduce the risk of stomach cancer as compared to those with the lowest consumption. The equivalent of 1 garlic bulb or 20 grams per day of allium vegetables was associated with a 10 percent reduction in the risk of stomach cancer. These results suggest that further studies are necessary to determine whether this association can be replicated since potential confounding factors and exposure misclassification are possible flaws of the meta-analysis.1
