Why Vegetable Oils Are Carcinogenic

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Replacing dangerous vegetable oils such as corn oil, soybean oil and canola oil with healthy fats such as lard, butter or coconut oil is a simple way to boost your health and reduce your risk of chronic disease, including cancer
  • Vegetable oils are a concentrated source of omega-6 linoleic acid, which has led to a severe imbalance between the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio in most people’s diets. This imbalance appears to be why vegetable oils promote cancer
  • Consumption of saturated animal fats such as butter, lard and beef tallow fell by 27% between 1970 and 2014, while consumption of vegetable oils rose by 87%
  • Historically, mankind consumed omega-3 and omega-6 at a ratio of 1-to-1. Today, most get 25 times more omega-6 than omega-3, and this imbalance has been linked to heart disease, gastrointestinal diseases, inflammatory conditions and cancer, especially neuroblastoma, breast, prostate, colon and lung cancer
  • Your body metabolizes omega-3 and omega-6 PUFAs into eicosanoids (hormone-like substances), and as a general rule, omega-3 eicosanoids are anti-inflammatory while omega-6 eicosanoids have proinflammatory effects. Part of the benefits of omega-3 fats is that they block the proinflammatory effects of omega-6 eicosanoids

Beet Juice Is an Effective Treatment for Leukemia

Did You Know…

… that beet juice is an astonishingly effective treatment for leukemia and other cancers?

The beautiful crimson color of the beet comes from betacyanins, natural compounds that also happen to be extremely powerful cancer-fighting agents.  Beets also contain an amino acid called betaine, packed with anti-cancer properties Continue reading

Harvard Study: Pasteurized Milk from Industrial Dairies Linked to Cancer

The truth has once again shaken the foundation of the ‘American Tower of Babel’ that is mainstream science, with a new study out of Harvard University showing that pasteurized milk product from factory farms is linked to causing hormone-dependent cancers. It turns out that the concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO) model of raising cows on factory farms churns out milk with dangerously high levels of estrone sulfate, an estrogen compound linked to testicular, prostate, and breast cancers.

Dr. Ganmaa Davaasambuu, Ph.D., and her colleagues specifically identified “milk from modern dairy farms” as the culprit, referring to large-scale confinement operations where cows are milked 300 days of the year, including while they are pregnant. Compared to raw milk from her native Mongolia, which is extracted Continue reading

Beets as a Leukemia Natural Treatment

Did You Know… that beet juice is an astonishingly effective treatment for leukemia and other cancers?

The beautiful crimson color of the beet comes from betacyanins, natural compounds that also happen to be extremely powerful cancer-fighting agents. Beets also contain an amino acid called betaine, packed with anti-cancer properties and unique phytochemicals called betalains. leukemia natural treatment

All of these nutrients are key to the incredible health properties of the beet. Betanin, one of the most researched betalains found in beets, has significant anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and detoxifying effects.

Recent Discoveries Shed New Light on Saw Palmetto

It is a promising herbal remedy, a common sight in the natural supplements aisle of your pharmacy. Principally, men use it most because it is believed to reduce a swollen prostate. But sometimes alternative health news isn’t so rosy, and Doctors Health Press must let you know: saw palmetto may not be the best bet for the prostate.

A new study, in the prestigious “Journal of the American Medical Association” found that saw palmetto does not relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate, even when taken in very high doses.

Many older U.S. men take saw palmetto extract in an attempt to reduce bothersome symptoms of a swollen prostate, including frequent urination and a sense of urgency. Its use in Europe is even more widespread, because doctors often recommend saw palmetto Continue reading

Sulforaphane Found in Cruciferous Vegetables Targets Cancer Cells

Research details published in the Molecular Nutrition & Food Research journal explains the potent mechanism exhibited by cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower to ameliorate developing cancer cells. The active photochemical known as sulforaphane targets prostate and other hormone dependent cancer lines and leaves normal healthy cells unaffected. Cruciferous vegetables have long been associated with a lowered risk of prostate cancer, but this is the first study to demonstrate the `search and attack` capability of the natural chemical compound. Consuming small amounts of crucifers several times each week can help to significantly lower your risk of developing many types of potentially deadly cancer lines.

The study was led by Dr. Emily Ho, associate professor from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. Tissue from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower contain high levels of the powerful natural compound chemically known as glucosinolates. In the body glucosinolates are broken down into sulforaphane  Continue reading

Palmetto/Nettle Root Extract Might be Preferable to Treat Patients with Early BPH

A comprehensive review of the randomized controlled trials (RCTs) show that when nettle root extract (NRE) is compared head-to-head with the standard drugs used to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), NRE is as or more effective, while consistently yielding fewer side effects. RCTs are regarded to produce the highest level of evidence for or against a particular intervention.

The standard clinical approach is to use drugs to block the activity of androgens (male sex hormones). NRE’s anti-prostatic effect seems to work differently. The minor androgen blocking effect of NRE is very far down the line from its major anti-proliferative and androgen enhancing effects. NRE also exhibits anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulatory effects,  Continue reading

Regular Exercise Cuts Prostate Cancer Risk

CHARLOTTE  – A new study has revealed that regular exercise can help keep prostate cancer at bay.

According to researchers at Duke University Medical Centre, those who were moderately active – anything equivalent to walking at a moderate pace for several hours a week – were significantly less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

They analysed 190 men who had a prostate biopsy and found that 58 percent of the men exercised less than the equivalent of one hour per week of easy walking, reports chinaview.cn

The study also showed that exercise was associated with less aggressive disease in men who did develop prostate cancer.

“As the amount of exercise increased, the risk of cancer decreased,” said lead author Dr. Jodi Antonelli, a urology researcher at the centre.
