CANCER CAUSING FOODS WE EAT EVERYDAY-DO NOT#CANCEROUSFOODS

microwave popcornWith ~1.5 million people diagnosed with some type of cancer everyyear, it’s time to look before you buy-

 
1. Microwave Popcorn-Proved by Wikipedia, conventional microwave popcorn bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid ( PFOA). This is a toxin you can find in Teflon also. According to a recent study at the University of California, PFOA is linked to infertility in women. Numerous studies in lab animals and humans show that exposure to PFOA significantly increases the risk of kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas and testicular cancers. You can read more about this substance and the above mentioned studies at cancer.org.

They used to contain diacetyl. Use of this chemical caused Conagra Foods to remove it from their brand of popcorn, ACT, because it was causing lung diseases in the workers at their factory.

2. Non-organic fruits

non organic fruitNon organic Fruits contain  pesticides such as atrazine, thiodicarb, and organophosphates, as well as high nitrogen fertilizers.
Atrazine is banned in European countries but still used here. This is a weed killer that causes severe problems in humans, especially in our reproductive capabilities.
A 2009 study found that when pregnant women drank water contaminated with atrazine, their babies had reduced body weights.Conventional foods  Apples oranges, strawberries, and grapes are probably the worst offenders with pesticides showing on more than 90 per cent positive pesticide residue.Washing fruit does not remove 100 per cent of the residue. Pesticides are toxic chemicals to insects as well as human beings.

3. Canned Tomatoes

 
canned tomatoThe lining of almost all canned foods are made with a chemical called bisphenol-A, or BPA.
A study published in May of 2013 by the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences -BPA affects working of genes  inside the brain of rats.Remember lax FDA is concerned! but not banned it.



 

4 Foam cups contain styrene  'human carcinogen'

But industry experts say regulatory agencies have deemed polystyrene safe for use in contact with food and drink'I think it's important to keep in mind that this is a hazard assessment,' Dr Jane Henney, who chaired the research council's committee of experts, told Newsday.
The declaration means there is 'scientific evidence suggesting that styrene causes cancer, but there may be alternative explanations, such as chance, bias or confounding factors', explained Dr Henney, who led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration during the Clinton era.

processed meatsIncludes hot dogs, bacon, most lunch meats like bologna or pimento loaf. They contain sodium nitrite
 which make them, look appealing and fresh but are carcinogens. Do not eat Smoking meats as it give you tar that from the smoking process.
 
 
 

6. Farmed Salmon-

 

farmed salmon 60% These fish are fed unnatural diets and are contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides, and other known carcinogens. They live in very crowded conditions which results in these fish having 30 times the number of sea lice than wild salmon.Also contains PCB’s, mercury, and cancer causing dioxins.
 
 
 

7 Potato Chips-

If potaotes are  superheated, it contains acrylamide, a known carcinogen that is also found in cigarettes.Alternative- USED BAKED CHIPS.
 
8.SMOKED FOODS-
 
Foods that are cured by use of nitrates or nitrites act as preservatives as well as adding color to the meat. Although nitrates do not cause cancer in and of themselves, under certain conditions these chemicals change once they are inside the body into N-nitroso composites. It’s this N-nitroso that is associated with a greater increase the risk of developing cancers.Avoid- Meats such as bacon, sausage, bologna, and salami .

9.Processed Flour -

Are bleached by Chlorine so you really needs to avoid all breads .USE RICE.

10. GMO'S-

Study by Dr. Pusztai at the Rowett Institute in Scotland, where rats were fed GMO foods, especially potatoes. ALL rats showed damaged immune systems, pre-cancerous cell growths, along with smaller brains and livers, in just the first 10 days of the project.
The FDA has NO testing procedures for GMO foods. The only human study ever published showed that those foreign genes that are present in GM food transfer to the DNA in the bacteria in our digestive systems.Unfortunately, almost all grains, including soybeans, wheat, and corn, have been grown via GMO’s. USE RICE.
GMO’s do not have to be listed on food labels, so read carefully and look for labels that state the food is GMO free.
11. Artificial Sweatners
There are numerous studies that show people who consume artificial sweeteners on a regular basis, such as in sodas, or coffee sweeteners, actually gain weight and make you diabetic.There is mounting evidence that the chemicals that make up these sweeteners, especially aspartame, break down in the body into a deadly toxin called DKP. When your stomach processes this chemical, it in turn produces chemicals that can cause cancer, especially brain tumors. LINK
STOP ALL FOODS ATHT SAYS-DIET FOOD,artificial sugar.DO NOT USE LOW FAT dressing also.
12. Excessive alcohol-
alcoholAlcohol use is the second leading cause of cancer, right behind tobacco use. While a moderate or low consumption of alcohol can be healthy and lead to a reduced risk of heart disease, excessive drinking is known to cause heart failure, stroke, and sudden death. In 2007, experts working for the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer  found  evidence to state that excessive alcohol use is the main cause of mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, mouth, rectum, and female breast cancers.


13 Red Meat-

 In a study done over a 10 year period, eating red meat every day, even a small amount, such as that quarter pound hamburger you like to enjoy at lunch, increased a man’s risk of dying from cancer by 22 percent and a woman’s chance by 20 percent. A separate research study has shown that eating a lot of red meat increased the risk of breast, prostate, and colon cancer.
red meatRed meat seems particularly dangerous when talking about colon cancer. A study done in the US followed almost 150,000 people between the ages of 50 and 74. This study showed that the long term consumption of red meat significantly increased the amount of colon cancer found in the subjects studied. On the other hand, the long term consumption of fish and poultry appeared to be protective in nature.


14.SODA/DIET SODA-

Sodas also contain artificial colorings and food chemicals like derivative 4-methylimidazole (4-MI) LINK  click here.

FASTING AS IN VEDIC SCRIPTURES IN 3 DAYS REGERATES ENTIRE IMMUNE SYSTEM

A person's entire immune system can be rejuvenated by fasting for as little as three days as it triggers the body to start producing new white blood cells, a study suggests
Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy.
Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells.
During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells.
In trials humans were asked to regularly fast for between two and four days over a six-month period.
Scientists found that prolonged fasting also reduced the enzyme PKA, which is linked to ageing and a hormone which increases cancer risk and tumour growth.
"We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system," added Prof Longo.
"When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged," Dr Longo said.

"What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So we started thinking, well, where does it come from?"
Fasting for 72 hours also protected cancer patients against the toxic impact of chemotherapy.
"While chemotherapy saves lives, it causes significant collateral damage to the immune system. The results of this study suggest that fasting may mitigate some of the harmful effects of chemotherapy," said co-author Tanya Dorff, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital.
"More clinical studies are needed, and any such dietary intervention should be undertaken only under the guidance of a physician.”
"We are investigating the possibility that these effects are applicable to many different systems and organs, not just the immune system," added Prof Longo.
However, some British experts were sceptical of the research.
Dr Graham Rook, emeritus professor of immunology at University College London, said the study sounded "improbable".
Chris Mason, Professor of Regenerative Medicine at UCL, said: “There is some interesting data here. It sees that fasting reduces the number and size of cells and then re-feeding at 72 hours saw a rebound.
“That could be potentially useful because that is not such a long time that it would be terribly harmful to someone with cancer.

GOOD FATS ARE GOOD-

The Big 'Fat' Lie: What to Eat and AvoidGood fats are good and stop buying fat free salad dressing or fat free foods as long as they are not trans fat.
Here are five reasons why your body needs certain essential fats -

1. They coat the nerves and provide it a protective sheath (covering). If this covering is lost any virus can attack the nerves and destroy the nerve fibers.

2. Our brain matter is composed of a lot of fatty tissue. The nerve tissues in the brain make up for the amount of fat in the brain nerve cells.

3. Children, till the age of 5, need a good dose of fats and oils to develop a healthy brain structure.

4. Our immune system depends heavily on the production of the fighter cells and these in turn depend upon the healthy fatty acids in the body.

5. The fertility process requires healthy ovum (female) and healthy sperms (male). When there is a deficiency of essential fatty acids in the body, fertility suffers. Besides, this it can even affect the skin texture and condition.

Before you get down to chomping on your favourite bag of chips, here's a lowdown on the types of fats, the ones you should avoid and the ones that you shouldn't be afraid of
What to avoid?

Trans-Fats:
They are the worst fats because they are unnatural and harmful for the body. Trans- fats are created in oil industries and the end product is unhealthy for the body. Trans-fats are used in all the ready-to-eat foods like chips, noodles, bakery products and pre-cooked meals.

Highly Refined Oils: Many oils are made from genetically modified seeds and plants, and not only that they are also super refined and processed to the point that they become unhealthy.

Most of the ready-to-drink coffee mixes and other breakfast cereals with pre-mixed creamers or dairy look-alikes have oils and fats of industrial variety.

Many desserts and ice-creams have industrial fats in them. Similarly, some of the pre-packaged mithais may have unhealthy ingredients and artificial oils.
Also try to change cheese to Indian butter- called Ghee, as it is more healthy than Butter.
Healthy Fats and Oils All natural fats and oils are essentially healthy for the body. Some of the top sources of healthy fats and oils are --

1. Walnuts and Flaxseeds: You must include these two in your daily diet. Walnuts in the winters and flaxseeds in the summers provide our body with a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to have the following benefits -

  • They help the body create an army of immune fighter cells
  • They provide healthy fats for the creation of nerve sheaths
  • They keep the blood pressure under control
  • They keep the blood vessels free from cholesterol deposits
2. Fatty fish: They provide the body with a healthy dose of omega 3 fatty acids for non- vegetarians.

3. Free Range Eggs: They are also a rich source of have essential fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids.

4. Fermented soya products and sea based plants are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids .

5. Organic butter and ghee is also a good source of general fats.

6. Cold pressed oils like olive oil, mustard seed oil and other seed oils also provide general fatty acids which are healthy in nature.

Mustard Oil -Antibacterial and anti allergy aid.#pubmed#mustard

Mustard oil has antibacterial property-"PUMBED JOURNAL"

 Mustartd oil has antibacterial property secondary to its active ingredients- 4 isothiocyanates (3-butenyl, 4-phentenyl, 2-phenylethyl, and benzyl isothiocyanate) which work for  4 Gram-positive bacteria (Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Listeria monocytogenes, and

Staphylococcus aureus) and 7 Gram-negative bacteria (Aeromonas hydrophila, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella choleaesuis, Salmonella enterica, Serratia marcescens, Shigella sonnei, and Vibrio parahaemolyticus) .Thai is reason Indian Babies are geting message when they are orn untill they are 6 month -1 year old to protect against these dreaded bacteria. As you know babies do not get good defence system untill they are 6 m to 1 year old and in Indian Ayurvedic system Mustart oil is known to Indians of its properties which is now widely researched by USA scientists.

Other essential oils also possess antibacterial property.AActive component -terpenes and terpenoids are components derived from Essential Oils, shows inhibitory activity against Staphylococcus aureus. Carvacrol has specific effects on S. aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis.
Perilla oil suppresses expression of α-toxin, Staphylococcus enterotoxin A and B and toxic shock syndrome toxin.
Geraniol shows good activity in modulating drug resistance in several gram-negative species.
EOs also act as biopreservatives, reducing or eliminating pathogenic bacteria and increasing the overall quality of animal and vegetable food products.SO Pickles in India and Asean countries are preserved in oil. Although clinical studies are scarce, the uses of EOs for topical administration and as penetration enhancers for antiseptics are promising.LINK


DO NOT USE JOHNSON BABY OIL AS IT IS SYNTHETIC AND SHOULD NOT BE USED.
Sinusitis and allergies-
If you have used all medications for allergies and still no solution-Must try mustard oil -instill 1 drop each nostril at bedtime when you lay down and mix by pinching and massaging nose a little bit. Some of you will sneeze immediately -10-15 , but that is nml and will get better in 3 minutes. Use for 1-2 weeks continuously then as needed basis.(REMEMBER THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE-YOU MUST CONTACT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE USING THIS).

Research and Safety

Mustard oil is generally safe but avoid if you have known allergy to nuts,oils in general..German medical journal "Arzneimittelforschung" in 2006, researchers compared the effectiveness of mustard oil-rich herbs, such as nasturtium and horseradish, to antibiotics for treating acute sinusitis. Nasturtium and horseradish compared favorably to antibiotics, with 81 percent of patients noticing a relief in their symptoms. In addition, the herbs were better tolerated than antibiotics and had fewer side effects.
