Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers'

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers' | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

Being overweight and obese puts people at greater risk of developing 10 of the most common cancers, according to research in the Lancet medical journal. Scientists calculated individuals carrying this extra weight could contribute to more than 12,000 cases of cancer in the UK population every year. They warn if obesity levels continue to rise there may be an additional 3,700 cancers diagnosed annually.The study of five million people is the largest to date to confirm the link.

Top Ten Acid Foods: #7 Artificial Sweeteners

Top Ten Acid Foods: #7 Artificial Sweeteners | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
Sugar is extremely acid-forming, but turning to artificial sweeteners could be even more harmful to your health.

Here's why...

COMPARE MOST POPULAR SUGAR SUBSTITUTES

Saccharin (Sweet n Low)
Saccharin was produced by a chemist working on coal tar derivatives.

Studies in laboratory rats during the early 1970s linked saccharin with the development of bladder cancer in rodents.

Aspartame (Equal, Nutrasweet)
According to the latest studies in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine and The European Ramazzini Foundation, aspartame is carcinogenic and linked to liver and lung cancer.

Sucralose (Splenda)
Studies on Sucralose revealed that at certain doses it reduced the amount of fecal microflora in rats, increased the pH level in the intestines, and contributed to increases in body weight.

A new study shows that sucralose can affect insulin response, making it more risky for those who are diabtiec or disposed to becoming diabetic–the people most likely to consume sugar-free products.

SO WHAT'S SAFE TO USE?

Artificial sweeteners are even more acidic than natural sugar, but there are healthier alternatives like agave nectar, stevia, real maple syrup, or raw honey.

When it comes to pH, balance is the key to a healthy alkaline lifestyle.

Your Fat Has a Brain. Seriously. And It's Trying to Kill You. | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
Body fat is just an inert layer of blubber, right? If only. New research shows that it's more like a toxic parasite that doesn't want to let go. The good news: if you exercise and eat right, you can force it to.

H2O Alkalizer's insight:

"Starting in the 1990s, though, scientists began to realize that fat is best understood as a single huge endocrine gland, one that wields powerful influence over the rest of the body."
