Buyer beware: The health benefits of almonds are being destroyed

Buyer beware: The health benefits of almonds are being destroyed | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

(NaturalHealth365) - "Many almonds now are fumigated with a chemical called propylene oxide – something that even the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) admits can lead to cancer.

 

The year 2007 marked a time in the U.S.foodmarket when it became illegal to sell raw almonds. This occurred due to a salmonella outbreak in Canada that was traced back to a California almond grower. A second outbreak led to the mandate for ‘treatment’ of the nuts...  Sadly, the treatment processes and government issued compliance standards drove many smaller almond producers out of business. Now most almonds come from big corporate producers willing to either heat almonds above 200 degrees or fumigate then in a closed chamber with propylene oxide gas. Today, even almonds sold as “organic” are treated using the heating process. Those not labeled as organic are generally getting the fumigation treatment."

Food As Medicine: How Diet Can Help Prevent Cancer

Food As Medicine: How Diet Can Help Prevent Cancer | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Diet in and of itself plays an important role in cancer prevention. Though the association between diet and cancer prevention is still not definitive, recent evidence suggests that diet may modify the risk of many cancers, including gastric, colorectal, breast, prostate, and lung cancers. For example, intake of dietary fiber and high consumption of fruit, vegetables, and fish has been associated with reduced risk of a number of cancers.

 

Some population studies also demonstrate that vegetarianism is associated with lower risk of overall cancer and female-specific cancers. On the other hand, red and processed meat, dairy, alcohol, and saturated fat increase the risk of certain cancers.  Research has found that vegetables and fruits containing high level of carotenoids (carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, papaya, tomatoes, etc.), cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bokchoy, broccoli, etc.), and antioxidant-rich foods (blueberries, blackberries, green tea, garlic, etc.) are linked to lower cancer incidence."

Sugar consumption has been shown to impair the immune system and make us more susceptible to disease, including cancer.

Considering the amount of sucrose and other refined sugars present in typical modern-day diets, particularly in the Standard American Diet, it follows that many persons have significantly compromised immune systems, which then opens them up to higher risks of numerous chronic diseases such as cancer.

The amount of glucose we consume has a corresponding adverse effect on the function of our white blood cells. In other words, the higher the amount of sugar ingested, the higher the degree of immunity impairment.

Sugar contains glucose and fructose. Fructose goes to our liver. The liver will turn excess fructose into liver fat which can trigger many of the metabolic diseases. Too much fructose shuts down the part of the brain that tells you when you have eaten sufficient food.

In terms of cancer many researchers feel that excess sugar consumption can increase the probability of cancer, and make the outcome worse of people who already have cancer. Excess fructose in the liver will cause the pancreas to produce more insulin. Excess insulin changes cancer tumors to attract more glucose, which then use that to fuel the growth of cancer.

To learn more about the problems and consumption of sugar take a look at this 45-minute documentary - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDaYa0AB8TQ

NIH Study confirms: Turkey Tail mushrooms boost immunity in women with breast cancer | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

(NaturalHealth365) - "It’s official – Turkey Tail mushrooms can boost your immune system so significantly that it may even shrink breast cancer tumors.

 

A $2 million, seven-year clinical study funded by the National Institutes of Health and jointly conducted by the University of Minnesota and Bastyr University showed that Trametes versicolor, or turkey tail mushroom, in freeze-dried form, dramatically boosts immune function for women with Stage I-III breast cancer─ possibly shrinking tumors."
