By eating all this meat and consuming all this dairy, we are a very sick nation. Heart disease and cancer rates are the highest EVER and they continue to rise....How can this be? How can Americans be amongst the "sickest" people in the world? The scientific research that has been done shows us by eating all the processed, artificial foods, along with huge amounts of animal products, (meat AND dairy), is making us SICK. This does not have to be the case....our health is in our hands. We can absolutely prevent disease, stop the progression of diseases, and reverse damage that has been done by THE FOOD WE PUT IN OUR MOUTH. There is not a PILL on the market that can work this MAGIC!!
I would like to share with you two tips today: Apples and Mushrooms.
Apples: According to Michael Greger, MD, research nutritionalist, a study done at the University of Wisconsin showed that apple peels stopped the growth of tumor cells. The researchers had petrie dishes with cancer cells growing in them, (breast and prostate cells)...they put drops of apple peelings into the dishes and the tumor cells stopped growing. The results were amazing.
Mushrooms: Researchers asked the question why Asian women had extremely low to non-existent risks of breast cancer, when in America breast cancer is rampant. Their research showed in Asia, women consumed green tea regularly as well as ate mushrooms which played a big part in their diets. After gathering all their information, the researchers found women who ate 15 mushrooms in a month's time had a 64% lower risk of breast cancer, and those that ate the mushrooms and drank green tea had a 90% less risk of breast cancer. This is AMAZING!
For those of you who don't know this, researchers have found that whatever starts the formation of breast cancer cells starts the formation of prostate cancer cells. Both of these types of cancers are considered "hormonal"--researchers are finding what causes breast cancer also causes prostate cancer...they are very closely linked.
