Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?

The Answer is a Resounding YES! It is possible to stop and reverse cancer growth by simply eating healthy.

Cancer is an ugly word. It seems like there are more and more people getting diagnosed with some form of cancer everyday. We all know the damage it can do to our lives and others around us. So, before we dive into how to get rid of these cells, lets first learn what cancer is and how it survives and grows.

What is Cancer?

Cancer is where a group of abnormal cells grow and hijack the body’s normal, balanced system of angiogenesis (healthy blood vessel growth). The tumor needs nutrients and oxygen to grow and spread. It does this by sending chemical signals that stimulate blood vessel growth in the area, in turn allowing blood, oxygen and nutrients to be sent to the tumor to continue growing.

There is lots of great research out there explaining this process and how to stop it.

Dr. Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer, particularly anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor.

The crucial first (and best) stepEating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game. It’s like scoping out a competitor before the big game. Once you know how to beat them, you can put your game plan into action and work towards that victory.

10 Processed-Food Secrets You Want to Know

This Article from DrMercla.com view: Full Article

In the featured article,1 Donna Gates, author of The Body Ecology Diet, explains 10 reasons why you might want to think twice the next time you’re tempted to eat processed foods.

1. They’re Addictive and May Cause You to Overeat
Processing modifies or removes important components of food, like fiber, water and nutrients, changing the way they are digested and assimilated in your body.

Unlike whole foods, which contain a mix of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, fiber and water to help you feel satisfied, processed foods stimulate dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter, making you feel good even though the food lacks nutrients and fiber. This artificial dopamine stimulation can lead to excessive food cravings and, ultimately, food addiction.

2. They’re Linked to Obesity
Processed foods are virtually guaranteed to contain additives that are linked to obesity. This includes monosodium glutamate (MSG), high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners and more. Plus, refined carbohydrates like breakfast cereals, bagels, waffles, pretzels, and most other processed foods quickly break down to sugar.,

This increases your insulin and leptin levels, and contribute to insulin resistance, which is the primary underlying factor of nearly every chronic disease and condition known to man, including weight gain.

3. They Break Principles of Food Combining
Some nutrition and health experts, such as Wayne Pickering, believe that eating foods in certain combinations helps your body’s digestive processes to work more efficiently and absorb more nutrients. Wayne actually constructed a very useful food combining chart that can be obtained on his website. According to one such premise, eating proteins and starches together, which is common in processed foods (such as a pepperoni pizza), inhibits digestion leading to putrification of your food, acidic conditions in your blood and supports disease-causing pathogens in your gut.
