“Researchers from the University Of Manchester, United Kingdom, have concluded that cancer is a purely modern, man-made disease.
In the United Kingdom alone, Cancer claims more than 150,000 lives each year. Statistics also show that about one in three people in the United Kingdom is likely to get cancer.
The researchers spent a great deal of time studying mummies, fossils and classical literature before arriving at their conclusion.
The researchers said the disease is a man-made disease fuelled by the excesses of modern life. This is because tumors were rare until recent times, when pollution and poor diet became an issue.
In the study of Egyptian mummies, for example, the researchers found no signs of cancer in many of them—with the exception of one isolated case. Slivers of tissue from hundreds of Egyptian mummies were rehydrated and placed under the microscope. The researchers found only one case of cancer in the mummies examined.”
Cancer News/ Gut Flora
“Researchers have shown that various types of intestinal bacteria might be factors in both causing and preventing obesity, and in other conditions and diseases. Now, a UCLA study suggests that it could also potentially be used to reduce the risk for some types of cancer.
The research, published online April 13 in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE, offers evidence that anti-inflammatory “health beneficial” gut bacteria can slow or stop the development of some types of cancer.
Ultimately, doctors might be able to reduce a person’s risk for cancer by analyzing the levels and types of intestinal bacteria in the body, and then prescribing probiotics to replace or bolster the amount of bacteria with anti-inflammatory properties….”
Cancer News/ Vitamin D
“A recent pooled analysis of a randomized trial and prospective cohort study determined that women with vitamin D levels of at least 40 ng/ml were associated with > 65% reduced risk of developing cancer.
Cancer is highly prevalent, affecting approximately 40% of men and women in their lifetime. In 2012, a total of 14 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed worldwide with 8.2 million cancer-related deaths. This number continues to rise with an estimated increase of 22 million cancer cases within the next 20 years.
Cancer creates a significant financial burden. In 2010, cancer care accounted for a total of $125 billion in the U.S. alone. With cancer diagnoses continuing to grow, this number is projected to go up to $150 billion by 2020. Therefore, it is important for physicians to implement preventative measures in order to decrease the medical and financial burden of those affected by this disease.
Current evidence suggests that vitamin D status is inversely associated with several types of cancer, including prostate, lung and breast cancer. Furthermore, vitamin D has shown to exert anti-cancer properties. There are several mechanisms that may be responsible for these findings, including vitamin D’s ability to prevent cellular proliferation, promote programmed-cell death and decrease inflammation in cancer cells.”
“A recent randomized controlled trial found that vitamin D supplementation decreased waist circumference, body weight and systolic blood pressure in Thai adults with prediabetes.
Prediabetes occurs when a person has a higher blood sugar level than normal, but not high enough to be considered type II diabetes. This is a sign that the body is not using insulin properly, known as insulin resistance. When an individual is affected by insulin resistance, glucose (sugar) builds up in the blood rather than being absorbed by the cells.
Prediabetes has become more prevalent in the U.S., affecting over 86 million adults ages 20 or older. Once someone has been diagnosed with prediabetes, it’s crucial to begin making changes to their lifestyle, such as increasing physical activity, limiting alcohol consumption and eating a more balanced diet. Without implementing these changes, approximately 15% to 30% of people with prediabetes will develop type II diabetes within five years.
Recently, researchers have begun to question whether vitamin D supplementation might also be an intervention to prevent the development of type II diabetes. Though, research on this topic has been conflicting. Some research has provided evidence that vitamin D supplementation improves insulin sensitivity, while others show that vitamin D doesn’t help control blood sugar. Now, researchers sought to gather more insight regarding the role vitamin D plays in the prevention of type II diabetes.
Participants who had an increase of vitamin D status over 10 ng/ml experienced a significant decrease in insulin resistance and a significant increase in disposition index. Disposition index is used to predict the risk for type II diabetes. The study presented significant results, suggesting that vitamin D may not only play a role in the prevention of type II diabetes, but it may also aid in weight loss.”
GMO and Contaminated Food
“After artificial turf (AstroTurf) was laid down on professional football fields, starting with the Houston Astrodome in 1966, football players suffered an alarming increase in knee injuries. Eventually, the NFL replaced it with other artificial surfaces, but between 2000 and 2009, ACL injuries were still 67 percent higher on fake grass than real grass.
Although artificial surfaces were supposed to make it easier to play indoors or outdoors in all types of weather, the game change hurt players instead.
The same can be said about artificial sweeteners.
Originally designed to restrict calories, it turns out they may do more harm than good. They trick the body into thinking it has taken in sugar when it hasn’t, often triggering sugar-binging (and weight gain).
And now a study in the journal Nature shows that artificial sweeteners alter your gut biome by changing the balance of bad and good bacteria, causing insulin resistance and subsequent glucose intolerance. Insulin resistance means your body isn’t using insulin properly to convert glucose into energy. That can pack on pounds and lead to diabetes.
If you’ve been drinking diet sodas or munching on sugar-free candies, stop. Instead, opt for fresh, unadulterated beverages and foods, and take a probiotic to restore the balance of good bacteria in your gut.”
“A groundbreaking new study published in the prestigious journal Nature has revealed how non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) drive obesity- and diabetes-related changes in both mice and humans…
The study titled, “Artificial sweeteners induce glucose intolerance by altering the gut microbiota”…
The researchers administered commercially available formulations of saccharin (Sweet’ N Low), sucralose (Splenda) or aspartame (Equal) in the drinking water of 10-week old mice. The control group received I either glucose or sucrose. After 11 weeks, the three artificial sweetener fed groups developed “marked glucose intolerance,” with saccharin having the most deleterious effects followed by sucralose and aspartame.
Gut changes linked to artificial sweeteners…Notably, the researchers found that many of the strains that were increased in relative abundance belonged to the Bacteroides genus and Clostridiales order, both of which contain members linked to obesity and opportunistic infections.”
GMO and Contaminated Food/ The Oils
“In an effort to avoid the health-harming problems caused by GMO soy, corn and canola oils, food manufacturers are turning to the cleaner, non-GMO benefits of sunflower oil. Furthermore, sunflower oil is void of trans fats, another plus when it comes to maintaining good health.
Of course, by now we’re all aware of the fact that GMOs wreak havoc on health. They’ve been proven to damage blood, destroy reproductive organs and create cellular damage in the body. At the same time, Monsanto, the company that incites frustration among many people for their involvement in GMOs, and worse, their refusal to admit that they’re unhealthy, is a key player in the GMO field.
The greedy company maintains that GMOs are proven to be safe, are thoroughly tested, and are helpful in reducing agricultural chemical use. As just one example, Monsanto maintains that the protein in their high-lysine corn is safe because it’s found in soil, suggesting that it’s good to ingest, since consumption of soil on vegetables and fruits has been occurring in the human diet throughout history. Clearly, that kind of logic is only a warped attempt to try to pull the wool over our eyes. Health conscious people know better.
As for trans fats, it’s no secret that they should be avoided. They’re used to boost food flavoring, maintain a product’s appearance and increase shelf life, but they also contribute to weight gain and memory loss. For example, one study found that men aged 45 and younger who ate a junk food diet high in trans fats performed less effectively on word recall tests for every additional gram of trans fats they ate every day.”

Eight Superfoods to Keep You Mentally Sharp The superfoods listed in the article include: blackberries, apples, cinnamon, spinach, extra virgin olive oil, salmon, turmeric and concord grape juice, along with the reasons why they’re so beneficial. Other items could include coconut oil, which recently has been found to actually reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. See our previous posts on coconut oil by checking the “categories” search for more on that subject.
“We are living much longer than our parents ever did, so why shouldn’t we do everything we can to live healthy lives and age wisely to enjoy our longer lifespans?
Maintaining our functionality and independence does not just depend upon our physical health but also on our mental acuity, many studies show. While we still don’t have a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, we know that that the brain functions better when our diet includes certain foods.
“A brain healthy diet [is] one that reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes, encourages good blood flow to the brain, and is low in fat and cholesterol,” according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The overall goal is the prevention of mental deterioration and if choosing certain foods over others can help then why not do so? Here a few that can help….”
High-Protein Diet Aids Sleep, Weight Loss There are a number of vegetables and nuts which also are high in protein. It’s worth your time to research these and include them in your diet regularly. Among these are: figs, kale, almonds, avocado, romaine lettuce, spinach and pumpkin seeds.
“If you’re trying to lose weight, eating a high-protein diet can help by promoting better sleep, a new study finds. Previous studies show increasing sleep aids weight loss, so researchers from Purdue University decided to look at what type of this diet would accomplish this.
First, they did a pilot study and found that in 14 participants, consuming more dietary protein resulted in better sleep after four weeks of weight loss. Then, they added 44 overweight or obese participants in the main study…
The participants completed a survey to rate the quality of their sleep every month throughout the study, and those who consumed more protein while losing weight reported an improvement in sleep quality after three and four months of dietary intervention.
A dietitian designed a diet that met each study participant’s daily energy need and 750 calories in fats and carbohydrates were trimmed per day while maintaining the protein amount based on whether they were in the higher- or normal-protein group…
“This research adds sleep quality to the growing list of positive outcomes of higher-protein intake while losing weight, and those other outcomes include promoting body fat loss, retention of lean body mass and improvements in blood pressure,” says professor Wayne Campbell, the lead author of the study….”
“Owning a dog may reduce your risk of suffering heart attack or stroke, especially if you live alone, a new study finds.
Several studies have found that people who own dogs have better heart health, which led to the American Heart Association last year issuing a statement attesting to the beneficial effect they can have on their owner’s heart.
Now comes a preliminary Swedish study that finds dog ownership can not only improve cardiovascular health for older people, but that this is especially so for people living alone, who are at higher risk, previous research has shown.
Since 2001, dog owners in Sweden have been required by law to register their dogs, so the researchers examined this national registry to learn how dog ownership was related to new cardiovascular events or mortality.
The researchers compared people who were dog owners with non-dog owners and found that those who did own them were less likely to die of cardiovascular disease – or any cause, for that matter. Most significantly, they found the benefit to be particularly strong for older people living alone, which is a group traditionally found to be at higher risk of suffering a cardiac event.
Dog owners do more exercise (by walking their dogs), which may contribute to them having better blood pressure, cholesterol profiles and lower risk of diabetes. Other theories may be that dogs tend to reduce the risk of depression, which is also a cardiovascular risk factor, studies have noted.”
Prescription Drugs – Over the Counter
“Older adults might want to avoid a using class of drugs commonly used in over-the-counter products such as nighttime cold medicines due to their links to cognitive impairment, a research team led by scientists at Indiana University School of Medicine has recommended.
Using brain imaging techniques, the researchers found lower metabolism and reduced brain sizes among study participants taking the drugs known to have an anticholinergic effect, meaning they block acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter.
Previous research found a link between between the anticholinergic drugs and cognitive impairment and increased risk of dementia.”
“One thing I’ve learned through my experience is that when it comes to illness, pretty much any dog can get sick. Despite articles claiming that mixed-breed dogs are healthier than purebred dogs, my extensive first-hand experience, and an important study conducted by the University of California-Davis, tells us otherwise.
The study, titled “Prevalence of inherited disorders among mixed-breed and purebred dogs: 27,254 cases (1995-2010),” was reported in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association on June 1, 2013. Research utilized more than 27,000 patient cases to determine the likelihood of occurrence of 24 of the most common hereditary diseases in dogs. Despite articles that claim that there is a higher concentration of hereditary disease in purebred dogs, this extensive study proves otherwise.
What researchers found was, “Of the 24 disorders assessed, 13 had no significant difference in the mean proportion of purebred and mixed-breed dogs with the disorder when matched for age, sex and body weight.” One disorder was more frequent in mixed-breed dogs and the other 10 were more prevalent in purebred dogs, although no one breed was dominant in suffering from any particular illness.
This makes sense since most domesticated dogs are believed to be the descendants of just a handful of lines of wolves. As a result, all dogs share strong genetic tendencies, some of them health-related. In purebred dogs, national breed clubs such as the Golden Retriever Club of America and the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation have worked together to identify breeds with an increased risk of specific health issues and to take steps to minimize the risk. In fact, the Canine Health Foundation has funded more than $35 million in research to improve the health and well-being of dogs.
So, perhaps the most important question is, “How can potential dog owners increase their chances of getting a healthy dog?” The good news is that thanks to the work of the American Kennel Club, their Canine Health Foundation, and breed clubs, responsible breeders are able to reduce the risk of some of the more prevalent diseases in dogs. Breed groups recommend specific testing for disease before breeding a dog. Responsible breeders utilize those tests before mating dogs, thus reducing the risk of a specific disease in the puppies they produce.”
Your physical health is very important, but of even greater importance is your spiritual health. Man suffers from a fatal spiritual disease called sin, which always leads to death.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
This is why Jesus Christ said we need the Spirit of God who gives us eternal life with Him. We need to be “born again” with a new spirit that is not subject to sin and death.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Right now, through repentance of the spiritual disease called sin, you can come to Jesus Christ, the Great Physician, for healing and assurance of eternal life.
Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
For those who love the Lord Jesus and are looking for His coming, the following is their future:
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
