World Health Organization Says Processed Meat Causes Cancer

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), processed meat is tagged as a carcinogen. With such classification, processed meat and cancer are now highly associated with one another. Clearly, there’s more to know about this relevant topic. So, we’ve gathered some pertinent information about the correlation of meat with cancer. But before we go into details, let’s first distinguish processed meat from red meat. Continue reading

Physicians refuse to promote healthy lifestyle changes in order to avoid stressing cancer survivors

A recent study published in the journal Cancer found that some physicians fail to encourage cancer survivors to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Researchers from Northwestern University, Howard University and the University of Miami say that cancer specialists are afraid of overwhelming and distressing cancer survivors even though they know that their patients need to make healthy lifestyle changes even after they’ve beaten cancer.

The Need for an Alternative Disease Therapy Organization

Many nights I wake up and think of different ideas and thoughts to write in my weekly BULLETIN (some weird, some great.)

The last few nights I have been thinking about today’s BULLETIN and writing about alternative and preventive disease cures and therapies because a book that I am writing lists over 20 alternative disease-fighting therapies for cancer and other diseases. But a little genie in my brain keeps coming back to a phrase made by Mahatma Gandhi… Continue reading

Contaminants in tap water may be linked to more than 100,000 cases of cancer in America

Satisfying water quality standards is not a guarantee that your tap water is safe for drinking.

A recent study published in Heliyon links more than 100,000 future cancer cases in the U.S. to chemical pollutants in thousands of community water systems. The concentration of these pollutants in water systems is in the range considered legal, according to researchers from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit research and advocacy organization based in Washington.

How to Boost Your Immune System

NOTE: It is rare, if ever that we will post a column which embeds links to products being offered by any author, however you will note that the following does make an exception to the rule, as the source is extremely reliable and trustworthy – in our opinion. Those related links are colored in blue.~ Ed.

We are continually exposed to organisms that are inhaled, swallowed or inhabit our skin and mucous membranes. Whether or not these organisms lead to disease is decided by the integrity of our body’s defense mechanisms, or immune system.

When our immune system is working properly, we don’t even notice it. But when we have an under- or over-active immune system, we are at a greater risk of developing infections and other health conditions. Continue reading

Salicylates and Pandemic Influenza Mortality, 1918–1919 Pharmacology, Pathology, and Historic Evidence

It is 100 years later and what do we find? Maybe similarities to the Pandemic of 2020. Extremely well researched and although it may not help you in your quest toward Your Good Health, you should find the lessons of interest – and maybe even some answers to the similarities of the modern day issues. ~ Ed.

Déjà vu? Public gathering places were ordered closed in 1918.

~ Abstract ~
The high case-fatality rate—especially among young adults—during the 1918–1919 influenza pandemic is incompletely understood. Although late deaths showed bacterial pneumonia, early deaths exhibited extremely “wet,” sometimes hemorrhagic lungs. The hypothesis presented herein is that aspirin contributed to the incidence and severity of viral pathology, bacterial infection, and death, because physicians of the day were unaware that the regimens (8.0–31.2 g per day) produce levels associated with hyperventilation and pulmonary edema in 33% and 3% of recipients, respectively. Recently, pulmonary edema was found at autopsy in 46% of 26 salicylate-intoxicated adults. Experimentally, salicylates increase lung fluid and protein levels and impair mucociliary clearance. In 1918, the US Surgeon General, the US Navy, and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended use of aspirin just before the October death spike. If these recommendations were followed, and if pulmonary edema occurred in 3% of persons, a significant proportion of the deaths may be attributable to aspirin. ~ Editor

Can Parasites Cause Cancer?

For humans, there is no escaping the parasite problem. We all have parasites or have had them at one time or another in the past. People with a great diet and immune system have far fewer parasite problems, but none the less, they may harbor parasites. There are about 120 different species of parasites that invade the human body. Continue reading

We Are Pawns In A Bigger Game Than We Realize

 

 

“I had grasped the significance of the silence of the dog, for one true inference invariably suggests others…. Obviously the midnight visitor was someone whom the dog knew well.” ~ Sherlock Holmes, The Adventures of Silver Blaze

Is it possible to make sense out of nonsense?

So much these days is an incoherent mess. It’s complete nonsense. Continue reading

Preventing Cancer from inside the Cancer Cell

Most cancer doctors talk about preventing cancer with a strengthening of the diet and immune system. Today I would like to review the preventing of cancer by exploring the process from inside the cancer cell.

Here’s what most cancer researchers know. First, we must ask, what is the origin of cancer? Cancer starts in the mitochondria of a tiny body cell, which is smaller than the tip of a straight pin. Continue reading

Difference Between Iodine and Potassium Iodide

Iodine is an essential mineral. Adult men and women should have approximately 150 micrograms of iodine each day, and most people in the United States easily obtain this much through their diet, says the National Institutes of Health. By contrast, potassium iodide is a man-made salt compound of iodine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautions that you should not take potassium iodide unless you have been instructed to do so by your doctor or by public health officials.
