Massive amounts of scientific research and billions of dollars is spent on trying to find a cure for cancer....but, unfortunately, we are no farther ahead today than we were 30, 40, or 50 years ago. Yes, we have drugs to "fight" cancer and give us more time, but we still do not have a cure.
What the majority of people do not realize is, DIET has everything to do with preventing cancer, stopping cancer growth, and many times, REVERSING damage that has already been done. (In my opinion, this should be on billboards everywhere)
Research has shown chicken can TRIPLE the rates of certain cancers. Not many people know that...colon cancer is associated with red meat....chicken is suppose to be "good for you". It's not. The meat and poultry industries, when confronted on these issues, stated that if people were to adhere to recommendations restricting the intake of chicken and red meat, these two industries would SUFFER HORRIBLY....so, if the American people had to choose, who should suffer, the meat and poultry industries, or the person with cancer?
Researchers wanted evidence showing what happened if they put cancer on a Vegan Diet...so, they put cancer cells in a petri dish and added drops of blood from a purely Vegan person in one dish and drops of blood from a person eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) in another dish. The immediate results showed the Vegan Diet stopped the cancer cells 8 times better than the SAD petri dish....8 times better....and that's the immediate results....can you imagine what can be done long-term?
Researchers did studies on women with breast cancer and men with prostate cancer. The researchers wanted to measure cancer cell clearance in these people using diet alone. At the beginning of the study, the participants had their blood drawn...one group was given a strictly plant based diet to follow and the other group the SAD. In just 2 weeks, the growth of cancer cells in the plant based diet group showed SIGNIFICANTLY less cancer cells...the SAD group had SIGNIFICANTLY less fighting power. Our bodies are designed to protect us....it's not that eating the SAD won't try and protect us, but we are, at the same time, feeding these cancer cells what they need to thrive on...animal products and sugar.
When these researchers added just 30 minutes of exercising, such as walking or biking, to the plant based eating group, the cancer cell clearance was even better. Then they tried adding STRENUOUS exercise to the SAD group to see if that would make a difference.....guess what....it did not...there was no added cancer cell clearance in this group.
The conclusion of this study was, nothing can "kick" cancer cells more than a Whole-Food Plant-Based diet. When we give our body what it needs, it WILL CURE ITSELF!! We need to continually feed ourselves with all kinds of vegetables, fruits, beans, whole-grains, nuts and seeds. The disease fighting properties found only in the plant kingdom are what we need to feed ourselves with everyday to prevent these horrible diseases from starting. But, even if the disease has started, you can STOP IT IN IT'S GROWTH....all with the food you put in your mouth!
Need ideas, recipes, don't know how to even begin? There are loads of recipes available on-line everywhere...type in vegan recipes and you will be inundated with them. As I mentioned before, straightupfood.com, VegKitchen.com, and ChefAJ'sKitchen.com are just a few of my favorites.
If I can help you transition over to a lifestyle that will give you your health back, (most people don't realize how bad they really feel until they try eating this way...they are absolutely amazed), drop me a line....I promise you, you will be glad you did!
