The popularity of the paleo diet attracts attacks from many experts who debunk its benefits. And now some of those same naysayers are trying to claim that eating paleo makes you more vulnerable to cancer.
A new study conducted by Harvard University suggests that there may be a link between a common procedure and prostate cancer, the second leading cause of death among American men.
Most urologists in conventional medicine place high emphasis on the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to determine prostate health. Even though researchers have placed substantial doubts on the validity and reliability of the PSA test, conventional doctors continue to use the test and rely on it to determine male prostate health.
Here is the point: The literature says a low PSA number of about four indicates a normal or healthy prostate, whereas higher numbers put prostate health in doubt and even suggests malignancy. A higher number, of course, calls for biopsy and may lead to prostate surgery.
Red eye can be a photographic annoyance. Nowadays, even the most rudimentary photography software provides filters to remove it.
But if red eye never shows up in your children’s photographs, it might be a sign of a rare but serious form of eye cancer.
Researchers in the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-AARP Diet and Health Study have found that increasing calcium levels can reduce the risk of cancer in women.
The results of the study, reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine, indicated that increasing your calcium intake can decrease your risk of all cancers if you’re a woman. This holds true with doses up to 1,300 mg of calcium per day—if you take more calcium than that, there are no signs of further decreasing your cancer risk.
Cancer is serious business. Many patients who hear their doctor tell them they have cancer believe their death warrant has just been signed.
It’s also serious business for the medical-industrial complex, which makes big money off cancer treatments and cancer drugs.
One in seven American women is currently suffering from breast cancer. The medical establishment pushes annual mammograms as the gold standard for early detection of breast cancer, with the idea that early detection reduces mortality. But a new study published in the British Medical Journal shows that annual mammograms do nothing to reduce mortality rates beyond that of “physical examination or usual care.”
In the study performed by Canadian researchers, 89,305 Canadian women aged 40-59 were enrolled and randomly assigned to one of two groups: one that receive mammograms and one that did not. During the study period that encompassed 25 years, 3,250 women receiving mammograms and 3,133 not receiving them were diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those 3,250 receiving mammograms, 500 died from breast cancer. Of those not receiving mammograms, 505 died from breast cancer.
The American diet is highly acidic. We don’t need “healthcare” and drugs. We need diet education and diet reversal from acidic to alkaline.
Cooked and processed foods – the foods that make up the diets of most Americans – are mostly acid. Meat is always acid-forming. There are no alkaline-forming meats. Acid (low pH) causes fermentation and disease. That is why there is such a culture of disease in this country. Death comes with total saturation of the body with acid.
If you survived Christmas, watch out for New Year’s. Research shows that this is the deadliest time of the year.
When the DNA in your cells misbehaves, it can speed up the aging process and lead to cancer. But laboratory research at Brown University shows that a simple eating trick may be able to stop that misbehavior while keeping you younger.
