    ASPARTAME

    Roaches and ants won’t eat it, cats and dogs won’t eat it, even house flies won’t eat it —

    but the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) serves Aspartame to you with their approval and the approval of the Monsanto Chemical Company. 

    The FDA and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have received nearly 7,000 complaints, including five deaths, attributed to the use of aspartame in food products since the FDA first permitted limited use in 1981. 

    A number of researchers and doctors around the country object not only to the product itself, but to the questionable preliminary research that led the FDA to approve it’s use. 

    There are 90 documented symptoms including: Headaches, Muscle spasms, Irritability, Heart palpitations, Loss of taste, Joint pain, Dizziness, Weight gain, Tachycardia (heart racing), Breathing difficulty, Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), Blurred vision, Seizures, Rashes, Insomnia, Anxiety attacks, Vertigo, Hearing loss, Nausea, Depression, Blindness, Slurred Speech, Memory Loss, Fatigue, Numbness.

    Breast Biopsies Leave Room for Doubt, Study Finds

    The New York Times - By DENISE GRADYMARCH 17, 2015 

    Breast biopsies are good at telling the difference between healthy tissue and cancer, but less reliable for identifying more subtle abnormalities, a new study finds. 

    Because of the uncertainty, women whose results fall into the gray zone between normal and malignant — with diagnoses like “atypia” or “ductal carcinoma in situ” — should seek second opinions on their biopsies, researchers say. Misinterpretation can lead women to have surgery and other treatments they do not need, or to miss out on treatments they do need.

    The new findings, reported Tuesday in JAMA,challenge the common belief that a biopsy is the gold standard and will resolve any questions that might arise from an unclear mammogram orultrasound.

    Do Biopsies Spread Cancer?

    Cancer is almost always diagnosed by biopsy, a surgical procedure that removes tissue samples from tumors. 

    The samples are viewed under a microscope by a pathologist to determine the presence and type of cancer. Studies are proving that biopsies can indeed spread cancer. Even a needle aspiration can leave 'tracks' of cancer cells. As it becomes common knowledge that biopsies spread cancer, many patients are looking for safer options for testing and treatment. And over half a million US citizens travel out of the country for medical treatment each year. 

    UD doctors routinely recommend biopsies to diagnose cancer. PET and CT scans usually follow. All of these tests can harm the patient. All cells are surrounded by interstitial fluid. This fluid drains into the lymph system through lymph channels, to the upper left chest, where the major lymphatic channel drains directly into a blood vessel. When a scalpel or needle invades tissue with cancer cells, there will be some bleeding, spilling cancer cells into the blood vessels or the lymph system via the interstitial fluid. Once a few of the billions of cancer cells break away and enter the bloodstream, they travel to distant organs and start to grow. This process is called 'seeding'. The dangerously high amount of radiation in PET and CT scans damages normal cells, which produce abnormal cells when they divide, and those abnormal cells can become malignant.

    APPLE EXTRACT KILLS COLON CANCER CELLS BETTER THAN CHEMO DRUGS IN LATEST STUDY

    (Natural News, March 2013) 

    According to an article by Ethan Evers, oligosaccharides from apples killed up to 46 percent of human colon cancer cells in vitro, and outperformed the most commonly used chemo drug by a wide margin at every dose level tested. 

    Unlike toxic chemo drugs, oligosaccharides are natural, health-promoting compounds widely present in fruits and vegetables.

    Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related death for women worldwide, the 3rd for men. Commonly used chemo drugs for colon cancer not only have limited success, they produce serious side effects, such as coronary spasm, neurotoxicity, anemia and immunosuppression.

    Apples are the most widely consumed fruit in many countries, and have already demonstrated activity against breast, ovarian, lung, liver and colon cancer. The oligosaccharides used in the study can be cheaply produced from apple pomace – a widely available waste product left over from the apple juice processing industry.

    Oligosaccharides occur naturally in many fruits, vegetables and algae as well as in honey and milk. They have been shown to promote healthy intestinal flora, control blood sugar and modulate the immune system. Commercially produced apple juice contains virtually no oligosaccharides and provides only about 10% of any health giving substances compared to raw apples.

    Apples and their potent anti-cancer effects, even at low concentrations, offer promise for a low cost natural medicine in the future.

    About the author: Ethan Evers is the author of the award winning medical thriller "The Eden Prescription" – where researchers perfect an all natural cancer treatment only to be hunted down by the pharmaceutical interests who will stop at nothing to protect their $80 Billion cancer drug cash machine.

    SHOCK STUDY: Chemotherapy can backfire, make cancer worse by triggering tumor growth.

    Daily News, August 2012 

    Long considered the most effective cancer-fighting treatment, chemotherapy may actually make cancer worse, according to a new study.

    The extremely aggressive therapy, which kills both cancerous and healthy cells indiscriminately, can cause healthy cells to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to further treatment.

    Researchers in the USA made the 'completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resistant inside the human body when they are so easy to kill in the lab.

    They tested the effects of a type of chemotherapy on tissue collected from men with prostate cancer and found evidence of DNA damage in healthy cells after treatment, the scientist wrote in Natural Medicine. Chemotherapy works by inhibiting reproduction of fast-dividing cells such as those found in tumors.

    The scientist found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein called WNT16B which boosts cancer cell survival. "The increase is WNT16B was completely unexpected," study co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle told AFP.

    The protein was taken up by tumor cells neighboring the damaged cells.

    "WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumor cells and cause them to grow, invade and most importantly, resist subsequent therapy," said Nelson.

    In cancer treatment, tumors often respond well initially, followed by re-growth and then resistance to further chemotherapy.

    Top 12 Cancer Causing Products in the Average Home

    Among many other cancer causing products commonly found in the home, this dirty dozen list has made it to the Hall of Shame. The Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC) and Ralph Nader have released a "Dirty Dozen" list of consumer products used in most American homes, and manufactured by giant U.S. corporations. 

    The "Dirty Dozen" products contain a wide-range of carcinogenic and other toxic ingredients and contaminants to which most of us are exposed daily.

    Study: Radiation Therapy Can Make Cancers 30x More Aggressive

    June 26th 2012 at 10:00 am by Sayer Ji. 

    Following on the heels of recent revelations that x-ray mammography may be contributing to an epidemic of future radiation-induced breast cancers.

    In a new article titled, "Radiation Treatment Generates Therapy Resistant Cancer Stem Cells From Aggressive Breast Cancer Cells," published in the journal Cancer July 1st, 2012, researchers from the Department of Radiation Oncology at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center report that radiation treatment actually drives breast cancer cells into greater malignancy. 

    The researchers found that even when radiation kills half of the tumor cells treated, the surviving cells which are resistant to treatment, known as induced breast cancer stem cells (iBCSCs), were up to 30 times more likely to form tumors than the nonirradiated breast cancer cells. In other words, the radiation treatment regresses the total population of cancer cells, generating the false appearance that the treatment is working, but actually increases the ratio of highly malignant to benign cells within that tumor, eventually leading to the iatrogenic (treatment-induced) death of the patient. 

    Last month, a related study published in the journal Stem Cells titled, "Radiation-induced reprogramming of breast cells," found that ionizing radiation reprogrammed less malignant (more differentiated) breast cancer cells into iBCSCs, helping to explain why conventional treatment actually enriches the tumor population with higher levels of treatment-resistant cells.

    Raise Your Glass To Resveratrol

    Anti-Aging Supplement Can Turn Back The Clock 

    Article by Dr. Michael Heim, Tampa Health Center 

    In my last blog on caloric restriction and longevity, I mentioned a supplement that produces similar effects in the body without the pain of following a low-calorie diet. That supplement is Resveratrol. As I covered in last month's blog, research has shown that caloric restriction or intermittent fasting can have an enormous impact on your health and has been shown to increase life span by up to 60% in animal studies. It is believed this result is due to a survival mode which the body reverts to when it goes through periods of time without a readily available fuel source. This survival mode leads to improved fuel efficiency, improved immunity and disease fighting ability. 

    Resveratrol is a compound found in many common foods including red wine, grapes, berries, and peanuts. Before you get too excited about the Resveratrol content in wine however, know that you will have to consume a liter of wine to get about 5 mg of this nutrient and that the recommended dosage is 250-300 mg daily. Luckily, Resveratrol is also available as a nutritional supplement. It is believed that Resveratrol simulates caloric restriction and the resulting health and longevity benefits it provides. 

    Animal studies have shown a longevity benefit from Resveratrol, even in subjects that were given a high caloric diet, but there is an even greater, synergistic effect when the two are combined (Resveratrol supplement with some sort of caloric restriction protocol as discussed in my blog last month). 

    This May Surprise You:

    The World Health Organization (WHO), produced a study ranking  health care  by country.  Can you guess where the US ranks? 

    In overall medical care, the US ranks # 37, just under Costa Rica and just above Slovenia.  (France is number one) 

    They also ranked the total health expenditure as a per centage of each country’s  GDP.  The USA ranks 2nd.  Only the Marshall Islands spends more on health care than Americans. 

    And when it comes to how many years of a person’s life expectancy will be healthy ones, the USA is 24th

    Conclusion – While we spend more on health care than almost every other country in the world, we are not receiving the kind of care that they get in the 36 countries that rank ahead of us. 

    And in 25 other countries, people live healthier lives. 

    Is it any wonder that over half a million people leave the US each year to seek medical treatment outside the country?

    What's really in the food? The A to Z of the food industry's most evil ingredients

    Thursday, July 28, 2011 - by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger - Editor of NaturalNews.com 

    Ever wonder what'sreallyin the food sold at grocery stores around the world? People keep asking me, "What ingredients should I avoid?" So I put together a short list that covers all the most toxic and disease-promoting ingredients in the food supply. These are the substances causing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and leading to tens of billions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs across America (and around the world). 

    High Fructose Corn Syrup, How Sweet it is…NOT

    Our Guest Doctor Michael P. Heim is a nationally known Bariactric Medicine (weight loss) Specialist. His clinic, The Center for Health and Age Management, is located in Tampa, Florida, where he practices anti-aging medicine, medical weight loss and primary care medicine. 

    in-defense-of-food-pollan-198x300I’ve just finished Michael Pollard’s Book, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifestowhich I mentioned in my blog last week. Many thoughts went through my head while reading this book but the one that stands out the most was that it reminded me of why I majored in nutrition in college. 

    Simply put, I believe in the power of food and always have. The natural next step as a physician has been to believe in the power of food and healthy living to fuel our health and well being. The author does a masterful job of explaining how the food supply in our country has become so unhealthy.  It also makes me question everything I put in my mouth and, as a parent, what my children put in theirs’. 

    To reiterate some of the points of last week’s blog, we as a country have been duped by the food industry with cooperation from our government. The food lobby is well funded and with that funding comes the power to obtain the right (by our government) to make, quite frankly, asinine health claims about the so-called food they are selling us. Are we really to believe that Lucky Charms is now somehow good for us because a small amount of “whole grains,” have been added? 

    The same machine has produced the commercials mentioned last week about the merits of high fructose corn syrup, in moderation of course.  Does anyone else want to ask, “are you #@@?% kidding me?”

     

    Organic Coffee Enemas

    Organic coffee enemas are prescribed at many holistic clinics.  They are simple to do at home.  

    Use only organic coffee (not decaf).  Make a pot of coffee – two tablespoons to 8 cups of water.  Let the coffee cool to comfortable warmth.  Put a towel in the bathtub, and hook the enema bag over the faucet.  Pour half the coffee into the enema bag.  Position yourself on the towel, and insert the enema nozzle. 

    The goal is to lie on your right side for 10 minutes, then your left side for 10 minutes.  When you are ready, keep the nozzle in, sit on the toilet, and release.  This cleans out the lower bowel.   As soon as you finish on the toilet, pour the rest of the coffee into the enema bag and get back in the tub.  Do the whole thing all over again.  The second time, the caffeine will be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.  As it makes its way to the liver, it causes the liver to contract, and that will eliminate toxins (the liver is where we store lots of garbage, including residue from medications, alcohol, chemotherapy, etc.)

     

    Detoxification Tips for Cancer Patients

    TrampolineFor patients who’ve undergone chemotherapy, or for anyone who would like to cleanse their body, there are some simple things you can do at home.  

    First, drink lots of pure mountain spring water – the higher the source, the better.  Do not drink distilled water – distilled water is ‘dead’ water – all of the health-giving minerals have been removed.  Avoid caffeine, soft drinks, tap water, hard liquors, frozen drinks and fruit juice (which is concentrated sugar). 

    Gently bouncing on a rebounder – a small trampoline – is another way to increase your circulation and stimulate your lymph system to flush toxins from the body.  Just bounce lightly – the balls of your feet never have to leave the surface of the rebounder.  Start with just a few minutes, and work up to 15 minutes a day. 

    Also, try to get at least 15 minutes or outdoor exercise a day – exercising in the fresh air can reduce stress and increase circulation of the blood and lymph. 

    Another great de-stressor is laughter.  Keep a positive attitude.  Be kind.  Smile.  Hug.  Believe. 

    Is It Really Safe To Travel To Mexico For Cancer Treatment?

    Many patients ask if it is really safe to go to Mexico for treatment.  

    Everyone has seen the sensational media stories about the drug wars and kidnappings in Mexico.  I’m sure if you are a drug dealer, you have something to worry about.  But in twenty years of working with cancer patients, the only time we have ever heard of a patient having trouble was from a couple who drove far into mainland Mexico, and had their money and passports stolen when they let them in plain sight in their car.

    When patients travel to clinics in Baja, the skinny peninsula just south of California, they are met by clinic drivers at the San Diego airport.  These drivers take the patients and their luggage directly to the hospital or clinic where they will receive treatment.  Most drivers have a ‘fast pass’ so patients are not required to spend hours waiting in line at the border.  In most cases, the ride from the airport to the facility takes about 15 minutes. 

    Choosing The Right Cancer Clinic

    Choosing a clinic is a lot like choosing a spouse. You want a clinic that is caring, loyal, trustworthy, smart, attractive and successful. You need to feel a ‘connection’ in order to put your trust and your life in a medical team. 

    When a patient is seeking natural cancer treatment, they have a world of options. There are hundreds of websites touting everything from radio wave hyperthermia to stem cells to cancer vaccines. There are small private clinics and there are large modern hospitals. When you are faced with a life-threatening disease, the stress of finding the right treatment center can be just overwhelming. 

    When a patient calls us, we will ask many questions about the diagnosis, what has been done so far, and where they have been treated. We want to know about cancer diets they are following, family support, what type of facility would make them feel comfortable. After 20 years in this field, we have learned what things are important to a patients comfort and successful treatment. 

    What Can I Do Right Now To Stop The Cancer Growth And Improve My Health?

    One of the most frequently asked questions from cancer patients is: “What can I do right now to stop the cancer growth and improve my health?”  And the answer is:  change your diet! 

    When you have a scan with contrast dye, the carrying agent for the dye is glucose, or sugar water.  Glucose is used because cancer cells suck up the sugar so quickly and completely, it lights up the films and shows the doctors where the cancer is located.  

    Sugar feeds cancer and helps it grow.  If you eliminate sugar from your diet, you will quit providing fuel for the cancer growth.

    Sugar is hidden in many foods.  Sometimes we think we are eating healthy, but we are consuming large amounts of sugar.  

    It doesn’t matter if the sugar is natural or refined – it’s still sugar.  While fruits are part of a healthy diet, we recommend eating only ‘northern’ fruits.  Fruits that grow where there is a winter season are best because the dormant season takes much of the sugar out of the fruit.  The best fruits are apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots and berries of all kinds (go easy on strawberries).  Fruits with the most sugar are southern or tropical fruits. The fruits with the most sugar are green grapes, melons, pineapples, mangos, papayas and bananas and citrus (lemons and grapefruit are permitted). 

    Monsanto Launches Damage Control Over GMO/Cancer Study

    By Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com | September 24, 2012

    Biotech giant Monsanto has launched a desperate damage control effort in the aftermath of a French study which found that rats fed on Monsanto's genetically-engineered corn were far more likely to suffer tumors, organ failure and premature death. 

    Aside from the details of the study, a wider question remains. If Monsanto and other GMO giants are so confident in the safety of their products and have no qualms about them being in the food supply, why have they spent a combined total of over $19 million dollars in an attempt to prevent Americans from knowing that their food is genetically modified? 

    Monsanto has bankrolled a huge campaign fronted by lobbyists in an effort to sink California's Proposition 37, a bill that would simply mandate genetically modified food and ingredients be labeled at the retail level.

    Vitamn C and Cancer

    BY DR. GARCIA AND DR. PEREZ 

    Question: Many clinics give Vitamin C by IV. Have there been any studies to show how this treatment can benefit cancer patients ? 

    Answered by Dr. Eduardo Ariel Perez Carbajal and Dr. Juan Manuel Garcia DeLeon Buenfil - BioScience Research Institute, Tijuana, Mexico. 

    A number of case-control studies have investigated the role of vitamin C in cancer prevention. Most have shown that higher intakes of vitamin C are associated with decreased incidence of cancers of the mouth, throat and vocal chords, esophagus, stomach, colon-rectum and lung. Because the possibility of bias is greater in case-control studies, prospective studies are generally given more weight in the evaluation of the effect of nutrient intake on disease. 

    Medical Tourism - How American doctors are driving patients out of the country

    When Eileen Draper told her gynecologist she was having menopausal symptoms, her doctor told her she had to start taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT). 

    “Don’t I have a choice?” Draper asked. Her doctor told her that all of her patients in peri-menopause had to go on HRT; there was no choice if she wanted to keep her doctor.
