Beyond 'Pink': How To Decrease Breast Cancer Risk Naturally

You will be hearing quite a bit of information about the need to find a cure for breast cancer this month of October since it is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I think it's important for everyone to know that National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was started by Zeneca Pharmaceutical (now AstraZeneca) in order to increase donations to "find a cure."  What this really means is giving money to pharmaceutical companies to come up with new drugs to treat breast cancer.

Gum Massage with Sesame Oil and Other Oils Deters Plaque and Gingivitis

While conventional dentistry is pouring chemicals into our mouths, ancient Ayurveda has been preventing gingivitis and periodontal disease with natural oils for thousands of years.

Ayurveda has been recommending oil pulling and gum massage for thousands of years to help prevent gum disease and plaque build up.

Yet the chemical industry is convinced their antibacterial mouthwashes and rinses are the answer. The heck with 'superstitious' ancient therapies – they say.

Is This Health Food Imposter In Your Pantry?

Is This Health Food Imposter In Your Pantry?

Olive oil comes from olives, corn oil comes from corn and canola oil comes from ... canola?

Right... sort of. Canola oil is a genetically modified food made from a hybridized version of the rapeseed plant which is a member of the mustard or cabbage family.

Rapeseed oil is a low quality monunsaturated oil used mostly in industrial applications and in some traditional Japanese, Indian and Chinese cultures.  The problem with rapeseed oil is that it's high (30 to 60%) in a toxin called erucic acid, found to be associated with fibrous heart lesions.

In the late 1970's, when polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils were beginning to be shunned for their association with high rates of cancer and heart disease, monounsaturated fats like olive oil were being relied on more and more as the best source of healthy monounsaturated oil. However, there was not enough olive oil for world demand, not to mention that it was too expensive for producing cheap processed foods. 

Olive Constituent Blocks Alzheimer's and Breast Cancer

Olive Constituent Blocks Alzheimer's and Breast Cancer

Two recent studies have found that a constituent of olives and olive oil inhibits the growth of breast cancer and the development of Alzheimer's disease.

The breast cancer research comes from scientists at the King Saud University. The researchers treated human breast cancer cells with a constituent of olives known as Oleuropein. The testing found that Oleuropein produced genetic changes among breast cancer cells that serve to inhibit their ability to metastasize and grow throughout the body.

One of the two key genetic changes influenced by the Oleuropein was the inhibition of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzymes. These MMPs – specifically MMP2 and MMP9 - usher the process of metastasizing. The MMP enzymes were blocked, effectively inhibiting the spread of the cancer.

The Oleuropein extract also stimulated a genetic expression of the TIMP gene. When these genes are expressed, through a polymerase chain reaction, tumor growth is halted.

The Fat Wars

The Fat Wars

Perhaps nowhere in health has there been more confusion than the confusion caused by fat. The question of which fats are healthy and which fats are unhealthy has led to some pretty unhealthy diets, including extreme no fat diets that attempt to eliminate fat as much as possible with no attention to the differences between different fats
