According to cancer.gov; about half of all cancer patients receive some type of radiation therapy sometime during the course of their treatment. Radiation therapy can be given in 3 ways:
A growing body of evidence suggests that cell phones dramatically raise your risk for developing brain cancer. The latest findings, published online in the journal Pathophysiology, confirm the cell phone linked to cancer find, and will hopefully convince you to educe your cell phone use and star using an effective wired headset to shield you from harmful cell phone waves.
In 2012, about half a million cases of cancer around the world were attributed to excess body weight, which extrapolates to 3.6% of all new adult cases.
In the United States, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer), with 1 man in 7 predicted to have the diagnosis during his lifetime.
With so many attacks by the media about the so called dangers of taking vitamins, it’s important for you to supply your body the following pearls so that you get more balanced information every day to keep you hopefully away from doctors.
The new European C ode Against Cancer, launched this month, outlines 12 things that individuals can do to reduce their risk for cancer. Top of the list is tobacco, followed by healthy body weight, avoiding too much sun and alcohol, but there are also several new recommendation – about radon, breast-feeding, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and also about vaccinations and organized screening programs.
Are you AGING fasting then you would like?
Are you dealing with HEALTH ISSUES?
Due to biochemical reactions in your body that occur with every type of food you at on a daily basis, some foods age you FASTER than your real age, while other foods help to FIGHT aging.
Eat the wrong foods regularly, and you can look and feel 10 or more years OLDER than your real age (not good!) … but eat the right foods, and over time, you can start to look 5-10 years YOUNGER than your real age.
Three of the processes that go on inside your body that have a MAJOR impact on your rate of aging are called “glycation”, “inflammation”, and “oxidation”. When we talk about aging, we’re not just talking about wrinkles on your skin or how thick your hair is … we’re also talking about factors that you can’t see, such as how well your organs function, and whether your joints are degrading.
Yes, I’m sure you’ll agree this is much more important than just know how you look on the surface. Of course there are many, many more than the 4 foods I will share with you today, however, these in my book are the first that must go. As an ex-311 pounder, I sure wish someone would have told me about these foods – but I can only go forward, and help those who are serious about staying well, and living as long as possible – What a concept!
Wheat (yes, even “whole wheat”)
Before I tell you why wheat can actually speed up the aging process in your body, let’s clarify some simple biochemistry in your body.
This deals with “glycation”, and substances called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). These nasty little compounds called AGEs speed up the aging process in your body including damage over time to your organs, your joints, and of course, wrinkled skin.
So with that said what is one of the biggest factors that increase production of AGEs inside your body? This may surprise you, but high blood sugar levels over time dramatically increase age-accelerating AGEs in your body. This is why type 2 diabetics many times appear that they have not aged well and look older than their real age. But this age-increasing effect is not just limited to diabetics.
Here is a little-known fact that’s often covered up by the massive marketing campaigns by giant food companies that want you to believe that “whole wheat” is healthy for you – but the fact is that wheat contains a very unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A, which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar HIGHER than even pure table sugar.
In fact, amylopectin-A (from wheat) raises your blood sugar MORE than almost any other carbohydrate source on earth based on blood sugar response testing that’s documented in studies.
This means that wheat-based foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, muffins and other baked goods often cause MUCH higher blood sugar levels than most other carbohydrate sources. If you don’t believe me, here’s something you should know … I ran personal blood sugar tests on myself using a blood glucometer about 45 minutes after eating 2 slices of wheat bread vs eating a bowl of oatmeal, with equivalent grams of carbs.
The blood sugar test results:
2 slices of whole wheat toast:
45 minutes after consumption. Blood sugar spiked from 86 fasting level to 155.
1 Bowl of Oatmeal: (equivalent grams of carbs to 2 slices wheat toast)
45 minutes after consumption. Blood sugar raised from 86 fasting level to 112.
As you now know, the higher your average blood sugar levels are over time the more AGEs are forming inside your body, which makes you age FASTER. Clearly, the whole wheat spiked blood sugar MUCH higher than the oatmeal and if you don‘t know, 155 is a massive blood sugar reading that will certainly contribute to faster aging if you eat wheat frequently.
You’ve probably also heard about the potential health-damaging effects of gluten (another problematic compound found in wheat that can cause inflammation in our digestive system) in the news recently, but this blood sugar aspect that was just covered is not talked about that often, and is yet another reason to reduce or eliminate wheat-based foods in your diet. Your body will thank you by aging slower and looking YOUNGER and be SLIMMER!
And losing body fat is typically another fun side effect of eliminating or reducing wheat in your diet.
In fact, I had a patient in his mid 60’s just removed 95% of the wheat from his diet about 3 months ago (aside from a little bit on 1 cheat day per week), and he’s noticed that his chronic joint pain has completely disappeared! Not only that, he also commented that he’s finally lost those “love handles” on his sides that have been plaguing him his entire adult life. All by simply reducing his wheat intake!
Yet another problem with wheat-based foods and aging.
As it turns out, baked wheat products contains carcinogenic chemicals called acrylamides that form in the browned portion of breads, cereals, muffins, etc. These carcinogenic acrylamides have been linked in studies to possible increased risk of cancer and accelerated aging. Note that acrylamides are also found in high levels in other browned carbohydrate sources such as french fries or any other browned starchy foods.
Corn-based foods – corm syrup, corn cereal, corn chips, corn oil
This is quite a variety of stuff that you might eat every day – we’re talking corn chips, corn cereals, corn oil, and also the biggest health-damaging villain that gets most of the media attention, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
We already talked in detail in the last section about wheat regarding the blood sugar process and it’s relation to age-accelerating formation of nasty “AGEs” in your body
But here’s another nail in the coffin for corn – it turns out that scientists have found out that the fructose in HFCS causes 10x more formation of AGEs in your body than glucosel. Yes, that’s right – that means the HFCS you consume daily in sweetened drinks, and most other processed foods (yes even salad dressings and ketchup) contribute to faster aging in your body – as if you needed yet another reason to avoid or minimize HFCS!
We’re not done yet with corn … it gets even worse –
Another major issue with corn-based foods and corn oils is that these foods contribute excessive amounts of omega-6 fatty acids to your diet, which causes an imbalance in your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio and leads to inflammation and oxidation within your body.
Once again – another example of corn-based foods aging you FASTER.
My advice. Avoid or reduce corn-based foods like corn chips and corn cereal as much as possible. These aren’t as bad as wheat in relation two blood sugar, and they don’t contain gut-damaging gluten like wheat does, but they’re still bad for you. When it comes to corn syrup or corn oil, avoid as much asa you can if you want to stay lean, healthy and young looking.
Sugar, sugary foods, certain starchy foods
Again, we get back tow the relationship between your average blood sugar levels and blood sugar spikes over time, and how that can increase those age-accelerating compounds called AGEs in your body.
Sugar is an obvious one to avoid. You’ve heard how bad it is for you 1000 times before for many other reasons, including your waistline and developing type 2 diabetes. But now you also understand the aging effect on sugar.
Instead of sugar, consider using a natural non-caloric sweetener like Stevia in your daily coffee, tea, in baking or other sweetening needs. This dramatically helps you control your blood sugar response and thereby help slow aging.
My personal trick to satisfy my sweet tooth is to only have 1-2 squares of dark chocolate after dinner instead of a normal full dessert that most people choose, and I did for half of my life. You only get about 2 grams of sugar in 1-2 squares of dark chocolate as opposed to 40-80 grams of age-accelerating sugar in a typical cake, ice cream, or brownie type of dessert. Come on folks – this is a “no-brainer”, and you can do it too!
Keep in mind that some starchy foods like white rice, oatmeal, and white potatoes can also have significant impacts on your blood sugar and thereby can increase formation of AGEs in your body. These foods are best kept in smaller portions if you decide to eat them, and balanced with healthy fats and protein to slow the blood sugar response.
Soybean oil, canola oil, or other “vegetable oils”
I know these have been marketed to you over the years by giant food companies as “healthy”, but if you understand a little biochemistry about how these highly-processed oils react inside your body, you would quickly see what a lie we’ve been sold.
First, anything labeled soybean oil, canola oil, corn oil, vegetable oil, or cottonseed oil (these are in a LOT of processed foods you probably eat) most times have undergone a refining process under extremely high heat and use of chemical solvents such as hexane.
This leaves you with an oil where the polyunsaturated fats have undergone a lot of oxidation and are therefore VERY inflammatory inside your body, producing free radicals, damaging your cell membranes, contributing to faster aging, heart disease, and other possible health problems.
If you want to avoid the health-damaging effects of soybean, canola, corn and other “vegetable oils”, make sure to avoid then as much as you can, and instead opt for truly healthy oils and fats such as organic extra-virgin olive oil, avocado oil, organic virgin coconut oil (a healthy source of MCT fats), and grass-fed butter (a great source of healthy CLA fats).
With the epidemic of overweight people, obesity, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, arthritis, etc., it’s time we all took personal responsibility for ourselves, and be an example to our children who will not live as long as us if we don’t make some serious changes, starting TODAY!
Drugs can only cover up symptoms – by feeding our bodies what it really needs we can avoid your becoming one of the millions of “Prescription Drug Addicts” who, in my opinion, for most are going down the wrong road, folks often get worse from the drug effects. It has been said, “you can’t keep doing the same things and expect a different result”.
Come on – let’s fight the big pharma and food manufacturers who are putting poison on the shelves in such a slick way – they don’t care about your health – it’s all about MONEY! But I care, and that’s why I tell it like it is – maybe not how you want to hear it, but, the truth always wins out!
I’m all about helping YOU to –

I think this will open of many to now understanding why were seeing so much illness. It doesn’t mention that the Bromine and Chlorine in these flame retardants act just like Fluorine, as all of these halogens will compete with Iodine. They all act to increase our relative deficiency of iodine and thus all lead to more thyroid problems and obesity but in addition PBDE’s also contribute to low energy levels, low fertility, cancer, auto immune disease, etc.
Know that this is just the tip of the iceberg but it’s very heavily documented or HBO would be sued. Chemical flame retardants are everywhere. Our furniture. Our homes. Our bodies. But do they work as promised? And are they making us sick?
The 3 chemical companies producing flame retardants would prefer that we not ask these questions, and they’ve spent millions of dollars on lobbyists, publicists and influencers to ensure that we don’t. It might remind you of the Big Tobacco cover-up. Which makes sense, since Bit Tobacco has had a hand in this, too.
Set against the backdrop of the awards-winning 2012 Chicago Tribune investigative series “Playing with Fire,” TOXIC HOT SEAT threads together an intricate story of manipulation that details how Big Tobacco skillfully convinced fire safety officials to back a standard that, in effect, requires all furniture to be filled with toxic flame retardants. The film continues to untangle how the chemical companies obscure the risks to public health and misrepresent chemical safety data by paying “experts” to alarm legislators and the public about the deadly risk of removing chemical flame retardants from our homes.
Through the personal stories of a cancer-surviving firefighter, a renowned chemist whose work helped remove fire retardants from kid’s pajamas in the 1970s, and a brave and determined young Maine legislator and mom, TOXIC HOT SEAT reveals the courage of brave citizens willing to fight for the truth against a shadowy nexus of money and politics.
Make sure you share this with everyone you know – we each have to take responsibility by saving our own lives and those we know and love. Let’s stop the secretes.

Resin from the Boswellia serrata tree, an anti-inflammatory staple in Ayurvedic medicine, is now showing promise as a colorectal cancer tumor inhibitor, according to research carried out by Dr. Ajay Goel, director of epigenetics and cancer prevention at Baylor Research Institute in Dallas, TX. Dr. Goel and his team have studied boswellia and its impact on colorectal cancer for the past 3 years and recently announced they have “multiple lines of encouraging evidence suggesting that in addition to its anti-inflammatory activities, boswellia is an important modulator of epigenetics in colorectal cancer, and very likely other human cancers as well.”

In laboratory animals, supplements of the amino acid leucine (abundant in high quality proteins such as whey) reduced blood sugar levels and improved their ability to process fat. In supplemental animals liver levels of fat and glucose improved.
“It had effects that improved insulin sensitivity improved their ability to metabolize sugar and fats and their overall metabolism improved.”
Magnesium acts with and is essential to the activity of vitamin D and yet most Americans don’t get their reference daily intake (RDI) of this important mineral. Extensive research showing that vitamin D deficiency plays a major role in the development of many diseases, including a variety of cancers (breast, prostate and colon) as well as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, psoriasis and mental illness, has prompted many people to take vitamin D supplements. However, their effects are greatly reduced if magnesium is deficient.
R-Lipoic acid is a potent, water and lipid soluble antioxidant that, based on animal experiments, may prevent cataracts caused by oxidative stress in the lens. Since R-lipoic acid is both water-soluble and fat-soluble, it can get deep into the eye tissues and destroy free radicals that cause protein changes resulting in cataracts. Animals given chemicals to induce cataracts had a 60% reduction in cataract formation when treated with R-lipoic acid.
The omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is highly concentrated in the retina and supports the function of the light receptive retinal cones and rods. The retina contains higher concentrations of DHA than any other tissue of the human body. DHA is essential to the healthy functioning of the retina and macula.
Insufficient B-complex vitamins result in paralyzed eye muscles, itching, burning, light sensitivity, blood shot eyes and watering eyes. Nearsightedness is often a result of stress. The B vitamins are necessary for normal nervous systemfunction and may be the single most important factor for nerve health. Pantothenic acid (B5) in particular is an anti-stress vitamin. Thiamin (B1) is important for intracellular eye metabolism and riboflavin (B2) deficiency has been linked to cataracts. B-complex vitamins with extra riboflavin are recommended for hyperopia (farsightedness).
The largest study to date on the link between vitamin D and common respiratory infections, shows that people with the lowest vitamin D levels report having significantly more cases of cold and flu than those with higher levels.
Since vitamin D is produced in the skin from sun exposure, that could explain why most colds and flu occur in the winter when there is less sunshine. Vitamin D acts as an immune system modulator, preventing excessive expression of inflammatory cytokines and increasing the ‘oxidative burst’ potential of macrophages.
Olive leaf extract and its active component, oleuropein, appear to interfere with viral infection and/or spread by directly inactivating the virus or by preventing virus shedding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane. It’s able to directly penetrate infected host cells and irreversible inhibit viral replication. Since this effect seems to apply to both active and latent viruses, olive leaf extracts could prove to be a major weapon against the common cold and flu, as well as many other viral and bacterial infections.
Bovine colostrum is another useful supplement for cold and flu protection. This thick, yellow substance, emitted by the mammary glands during the first 24-48 hours after birth, is rich in nutrients and immune factors that protect against invading organism and facilitate development of strong immune system. By boosting a weakened immune system, colostrum’s immune factors can help prevent such conditions as colds, flu, diarrhea, sinusitis, asthma, allergies, herpes, viral bronchitis, candidiasis and ear infections.
Resveratrol may improve how the human body responds to insulin, the hormone responsible for sugar and fat metabolism. Hungarian researchers report for the first time that a daily 10 mg dose of resveratrol is associated with reductions in insulin resistance in type-2 diabetics. According to the researchers:
“The present study shows for the first time that resveratrol improves insulin sensitivity in humans, which might be due to a resveratrol-induced decrease in oxidative stress that leads to a more efficient insulin signaling via the Akt pathway.”
Pomegranate extract from Verdure Sciences has been granted two new patents. This rich source of antioxidants, has been linked to improved heart health, but a growing body of science indicates the fruit protects against prostate cancer. Studies also report a role in joint health by slowing cartilage loss in arthritis. Ellagitannin compounds like punicalagins and punicalins, account for half of the fruit’s antioxidant ability behind the reported health benefits.
Astaxanthin, the pigment that gives krill oil its colour, can boost the body’s defense against obesity-induced oxidative stress, according to South Korean researchers. At a dose of only 5 mg daily, researchers saw a reduction in oxidative stress markers plus an increase in the blood’s antioxidant capacity … including a 193% increase in superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels.
Whey protein is a “functional food” with a number of health benefits. The biological components of whey (including lactoferrin, beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptide and immuno-globulins) demonstrate a range of immune-enhancing properties. In addition, whey has the ability to act as an antioxidant, anti-hypertensive, anti-tumor, hypolipidemic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and chelating agent.
The primary mechanism by which whey is thought to exert its effects is by intracellular antioxidant. A number of clinical trials have successfully been performed using whey in the treatment of cancer, HIV, hepatitis B, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and as an antimicrobial agent. Whey protein has also exhibited benefit in the arena of exercise performance and enhancement.
Sarcopenia (skeletal muscle wasting with aging) is believed to underlie a number of serious age-related health issues. While it may be seen as inevitable, decreasing this gradual loss of muscle is vital for healthy aging. Elderly individuals are still able to respond to both resistance training and the anabolic signals provided by protein ingestion, provided specific amino acids, such as leucine, are present.
Whey protein, a rich source of these essential amino acids, rapidly elevates plasma amino acid levels, providing the foundation for muscle mass preservation. Several studies have shown whey protein to be effective in augmenting the effects of resistance exercise, particularly when taken in the hours surrounding the exercise training. Simple dietary and exercise strategies that may improve the maintenance of skeletal muscle mass could reduce the incidence of many age-related health issues and improve the quality of life for many aging folks.
