Not Good to Drink . . . Carbonated Soft Drinks

By Paul Chong Saturday 15 August 2015

Unknown Be it pop, soda, lolly water or any other fizzy drink, its popularity & convenience is without doubt. These drinks are kind of additive as with junk foods. Makes no difference whether they are in diet form or otherwise, such drinks are not good to drink. In consuming this sweet fizzy delight, most people generally fail to see light!
It’s found that soda has been linked to diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases. Despite the fact, the average Australian still consumes at least 2 sweet carbonated drinks every day. A recent study from the University Of California, San Francisco found direct links between the consumption of sweetened carbonated beverages and premature cellular aging.

UnknownThe authors of the research, Elissa Epel, Ph.D. and Cindy Leung, Ph.D. decided to test the effects of sugared soda on the aging process. The researchers tested a group of people who consumed 12-20 ounces of soda or more on a daily basis, and measured the length of their telomere (the ends of chromosomes, which protect them from deterioration) and found that when compared to the control group, their telomere were significantly shorter. A short telomere is a good indicator of upcoming disease onset and has been linked to the development of cancer and cellular aging.imagesThe study tested the length of the telomere before and after regular consumption of soft drinks and found that they, indeed, cause significant shortening of the telomere. When put in numbers, the results are even more shocking: Daily consumption of 20 ounces of carbonated drinks was shown to cause 4.6 years of cellular damage, meaning your body ages 4.6 years, only because you drink soda. Furthermore, telomere shortening has been associated with insulin resistance, oxidative damage to the tissues, and inflammation.

The 5,309 participants, all aged between 20-65, came from different backgrounds, lived different lifestyles, and were of various races and ethnicities, with similar results for participants. Furthermore, the research found that it is likely that this kind of cellular damage can occur in children.

Cancer is Serious Business

All cancer patients MUST watch these videos as provided below.

When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough. – See more at: http://www.burzynskimovie.com/#sthash.JNw3ssjZ.dpuf

Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D,a Polish immigrant, was trained as both a biochemist and a physician. He’s spent the last 35 years developing and successfully treating cancer patients suffering with some of the most lethal forms of cancer at his clinic in Houston, Texas. The treatment he developed involves a gene-targeted approach using non-toxic peptides and amino acids, known as Antineoplastons.

After a grueling 15-year long battle, the Texas Medical Board has officially ended its crusade to revoke Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski’s medical license in an effort to end his use of Antineoplastons. The Texas Medical Board’s case against him was dismissed on November 19, 2012, just in time for Thanksgiving.

After it was revealed that the FDA had pressured the Texas medical board to revoke Dr. Burzynski’s medical license – despite the fact that no laws were broken, and his treatment was proven safe and effective – the obvious question was “why?” The answer to this has to do with money. Lots and lots of money… See, Dr. Burzynski owns the patent for this treatment, and should it actually gain FDA approval, not only would it threaten conventional chemotherapy and radiation, it would also result in billions of dollars of cancer research funds being funneled over to the one single scientist who has exclusive patent rights.

Doesn’t this gives you the impression that money is of more value in US than human lives? The power & control with which the pharmaceutical companies have over FDA go with any gainsaying.

Dr. Burzynski is now doing the unthinkable . . . He is the first and only scientist in United States history to enter the federal drug approval process for a proprietary cancer therapy without any financial support from the American government, the pharmaceutical industry, or the cancer establishment.

Foods To Fight Cancer

This is easily the best presentation & knowledge on cancer. Please read & digest.

A book written by Professor Richard Beliveau and Dr Denis Ginger on “foods to fight cancer” have the following findings: Statistic shows that one out of three people is affected by cancer before the age of 75. This represents 12 per cent of all reported deaths on Earth. However, fear not, there is hope. 

People fear cancer and also believe that there is little they can do to prevent it. They put developing cancer down to hereditary factors or sheer bad luck. However, scientific research shows that this is not the case, and that lifestyle factors such as diet can play a major role in preventing cancerDo you know, one third of all cancers are linked to poor eating habits?

 Poor Dietary risk cancer

What is Cancer ? Cancer is a disease of the cell. Our human beings is made up of 60,000 billion cells.

The growth of cancer takes a long time over many years or decades. A cancerous tumor is not an instant phenomenon, it is a result of a long process that take several years to form.

The slowness in the growth gives us the opportunity to intervene to block the rebel cell from maturing into a cancer cell.

 Preventing Cancer Growth

 Common method is by destroying the cancerous tumor by  1) Surgery,  2) Radiotherapy and 3) Chemotherapy ( Usually done together ).

Limitations

Surgery – cannot eliminate all cancerous cells. Radiotherapy ( X rays) – radiation will kill some of the normal cells too. Chemotherapy by medication or drugs to reach cancerous cells – many side effects including hair loss or drop in immune cell, organs complication.

4) Anti-Angiogenesis Metronomic is a new approaches by attacking the tumor’s blood supply thus depriving it food.  But anti-Angiogenesis Metronomic has to be a continuous process. 

The good news is that a significant quantities of some Anti-Angiogenesis Metronomic molecules are present in fruits and vegetables.

Eating to Prevent Cancer

While it is true that the tumors that forms spontaneously in our bodies generally remain microscopic in size, posing no danger to health, it is also true that all too often these tumors do not grow and develop into lethal end stage cancel. However, if it does grow, we will be at risk of developing cancer.

Anticancer molecules present in fruits and vegetables fight cancers at the source, before it can reach maturity. Anticancer molecules present in food keeps them from progressing to an advanced stage of lethality.

In this way, we should try to think of cancer as a chronic disease, one that can be controlled on a daily basis with the help of foods rich in anticancer compounds.

Among the many anticancer compound present in fruits and vegetables, phytochemicals are the most important.

Anticancer compound present in fruits and vegetables, phytochemicals are the most important 

Anticancer compound present in fruits and vegetables, phytochemicals block carcinogen action, block the promotion and progression of cancer cells.

Cabbage

Cabbage family ( Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts ) have an almost magical ability to fight against the development of cancerous cells in the body. Eaten regularly, they are an easy way to help to prevent cancer.

Broccoli is by far the best source of sulphorahane ( one of the phythochemical compounds )

Rapid or light cooking techniques, such as steaming or stir-frying in a wok, are simple and effective ways to maximize the quantity of anticancer molecules. Over cooking reduces the effectiveness of the anticancer molecules. 

Garlic and Onions

Used for more than 2000 years before Christ, Garlic and Onions represent one of the best documented examples of the role of plants in the treatment of diseases and maintenance of good health.

The molecules found in garlic and onions are also capable of slowing down the propagation of tumors by interfering with the growth processes in cancer cells, leading to cell death by apoptosis. 

Freshly crushed garlic is by far the best source of anticancer compounds and should be preferred over supplements (Drug).

Soya

Soya Beans, Soya sauce, Tofu has Isoflavones, the anticancer compounds present in soya, possesses a chemical structure similar to that of sex hormones and may thus interfere with the development of cancers caused by high levels of these hormones in the bloodstream.

Soya plays an important role in the prevention of breast and prostate cancer.

Studies has shown that taking soya at an early age for woman decreases the incidence of breast cancer. 

 Japanese Green Tea

Green tea is an exceptional source of powerful anticancer molecules that make it a key feature of any diet designed to prevent the growth of cancer.

Green tea undergo the least transformation of all teas.

Black tea (Red tea) – resembles that of green tea, except that the roasting stage is carried out and thus have very little anticancer activity.

Japanese Green tea contains much more anticancer activity know as EGCG than Chinese Green Tea.

Brewing time matters too, and to maximize the extraction of the anticancer compound, the infusion time allowed should be at least 8 to 10 minutes.

Higher EGCG has better anti cancer compound

Berries

Most berries are an exceptionally abundant source of several classes of polyphenols that posses anticancer potential: ellagic acid, anthocyanidins, and proanthocyanidins.

Eating cranberries should be preferred over drinking cranberry juice.

 Omega-3s

Studies show that omega-3s reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease and in cancer prevention.

Omega-3s acids are naturally extremely unstable and it is preferable to use whole foods as source instead of omerga-3s supplements (Drug).

Eating fatty fish once or twice a week is one simple way of increasing omerga-3 levels in your diet.

Sardines, Salmon, linseed, soya, nuts are other sources of Omega -3 fatty acids.

Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits : Oranges, Grapefruit, Lemons, Mandarins

Studies has suggested that phytochemical compounds in citrus fruits block tumor growth by direct action on the cancerous cells, restricting their ability to reproduce.

Citrus fruit consumption, whether in the form of whole fruit or juice, supplies the body with an incomparable source of specific anticancer molecules, while also providing the necessary daily requirements of many vitamins and minerals. 

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate contains important amounts of polyphenols that are potentially capable of exercising beneficial effects on some chronic illness, including cancers and cardiovascular disease ( heart and blood vessel). 

Milk chocolate contains less polyphenols

Substitute dark chocolate for sugar-filled junk food with no nutritional benefits. 

Supplement ( Drugs)

Eating whole food provides greater benefits than taking supplements.

There are no and there will no miracle cures that are able to entirely repair the damage caused by a poor diet. You cannot eat just anything and then get off the hook by taking a pill.

Myth

Fruits and vegetables contain pesticide residues that causes cancer. – False, the residue is present in trace amounts and no study has ever established a link between these residues and cancer.

Only organic fruits and vegetables offer real health benefits. – False, In fact it would be better to consume many standard fruits and vegetables on a daily basis than to only occasionally eat organic foods. 

Fighting Cancer Menu

Quit smoking

Lower red meat and calorie intake- avoid or reduce industrially process foods i.e. chips, soft drinks, crisps, hamburgers.

Avoid barbecued meats. The greasy drippings that fall and catch fire produce toxic substances know as aromatic hydrocarbons.

Exercise regularly

Choosing to modify your diet in order to include certain foods that are exceptional sources of anticancer molecules represents one of the best weapons currently at our disposal in the fight against cancer.

Anti-Cancer Food

Lightly cook, steam or stir-fry Cabbages, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or Tomatoes.

Habitually add Garlic or Onions to your cooking.

Drink more Soya Bean Drink or Japanese Green Tea or choose Red Wine than beer.

When you buy your fruit, take Berries, Oranges, Grapefruit, Lemons, Mandarin Oranges conveniently.

Add Sardines or Salmon to your dish.

Choose Chocolate rather than sugar.

After reading the book, I have a better understanding about cancer. At least we are in control of our life, so why put our life and our family at risk. 

Just make an effort and take more anticancer food. Do not make life difficult for ourselves, simple adjustments to our lifestyle keeps the doctor away.

Take care

Cancer: Man’s Own Doing?

By P Chong                                                             Mon. 25 Oct. 2010

Blood runs through our veins

In modern day living Cancer is the bane.

Google Picture of Mummy

When young I had often wonder why the study of archaeology or anthropology. I just couldn’t visualise the benefits to the living human. Directly or indirectly, they have much relevance & reveal hidden knowledge to the medical field. For instance, archaeology & the study of Egypt mummies have proved that cancer was extremely rare in ancient times.

Leading medical researchers are led to conclude from archaeological findings that cancer is a relatively modern disease, brought on by our lifestyle & diet – being most endemic in industrialised societies. Could this be conclusive?

National Geographic: Breast Cancer Survivors

US-based writer & investigator Terrence Aym’s article on “Egyptian Mummies Prove Cancer Is Man-Made” claims that while “cancer kills millions of people annually . . . the strange fact is that there is no trace of the insidious killer among the remains of ancient peoples”.

Professor Michael Zimmerman, the US biologist, recently declared in an interview with a British newspaper, “In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases”. However, in a study of the Egyptian mummies, it simply does not exist. Zimmerman concluded “The virtual absence of malignancies in mummies must be interpreted as indicating their rarity in antiquity, indicating that cancer-causing factors are limited to societies affected by modern industrialisation”.

Zimmerman’s colleague, Professor David, spoke at a conference in early 2010. During her presentation she stated that, “In industrialised societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare.

”There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer,” she noted. “So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.”

Perhaps all this new evidence should make the US FDA reconsider artificial sweeteners, binders, and preservatives not to mention irradiated food, genetically engineered crops and animals and the newly approved cloning?

For some years many cancer experts have contended that the modern-day malady must have its roots in the modern-day lifestyle, particularly that of the Western culture. The mute mummies have actually communicated a lot: their bodies’ lack of cancers and tumours underscore many researchers’ suspicions and tend to support their theories. 

Not content to let physical evidence alone prove the case that cancer is man-made, Zimmerman and an associate, Rosalie David, poured through ancient literature, classical medical writings and investigated fossil records likely to contain the tell-tale signs of encroaching carcinoma but to no significance.

A previous study of thousands of bones from the remains of Neanderthals also failed to turn up evidence of any cancers. According to the study, only one Neanderthal may have been afflicted with cancer, and even that is not proven

Although the ancient Greeks were the first to write of diseases that today would be identified as forms of cancer, the condition was exceedingly rare. It was not until the middle of the 17th Century that medical texts began defining the disease which had suddenly become more prevalent.

Zimmerman asserts that his research shows that distinctive tumours, carcinomas and cancerous lesions only began to be seen about 200 years ago. That falls in line with the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and the introduction of pollutants into the air and water and the addition of chemicals with artificial processing of of foods to preserve them longer than traditional methods of salting, smoking or drying.

Evidences point that an unhealthy lifestyle, smoking, pollution, obesity stress, tension and bad eating habits have made what used to be a relatively rare disease far more widespread. We may thus conclude that wile cancer though may not be entirely man-made, but the hand of humankind in its propagation is very clearly visible.

My brother-in-law recently passed on at age 64 of lung cancer. He was a non-smoker. I believe it’s the polluted environment of Taipei where he lived that contributed to his cancer, which was only detected in the fourth stage – just too advanced for any cure. People say the good die young. At 64, with the advancement of modern medical science, he was indeed young to have passed on.
