Reducing belly fat is particularly beneficial as it is linked to metabolic syndrome, a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity, as well as heart disease
The prevalence of metabolic health in adults is ‘alarmingly low,’ in the U.S. even among people who are normal weight, a new study finds.
Knowledge about metabolism has been increasing yet something is missing something. Perhaps indirect advice on metabolism through old wisdom that kept hundreds of generations of people slender and strong. Continue reading
NOTE: At the time of this posting, that which is published below is six and one-half years old, and yet the Medical Establishment STILL refuses to heed the warnings as posted by this author. The Publisher of this site has been publishing said warnings about mammography and it’s far more reliable and safer alternative for nearly 20 years. ~ JB
While a growing body of research now suggests that x-ray mammography is causing more harm than good in the millions of women who subject themselves to breast screenings, annually, without knowledge of their true health risks, the primary focus has been on the harms associated with over-diagnosis and over-treatment, and not the radiobiological dangers of the procedure itself.

Oh – DUH – someone finally awoke? ~ Ed.
Two commonly used drugs encourage the disease to develop in the lungs
The commonly prescribed chemo drugs paclitaxel and doxorubicin cause breast tumours to release proteins that then circulate in the blood until they reach the lungs, triggering the disease’s onset in a new part of the body. Continue reading
Publisher’s NOTE ~ The basis of what you are about to read was written some years ago by a renowned practitioner (now retired) in the cancer field and was updated in November of 2016. As the Estate approved Editor and Publisher of the writings of Dr. William Donald Kelley, I have taken the Liberty of correcting several minor issues in this post. In addition, I have also added the names and contact information for several of those offering services or enzymes – beyond those which were originally offered by the author. Also, we have added several video tutorials for your expanded education.
There has been no attempt to alter the meanings or intent of the author’s original writing. You’ll find a link near the end of this post, which will take you to the original column. We believe that you will find what is posted here to more beneficial. ~ J. Bennett, Editor and Publisher
There is a protein produced by the body that correlates directly with cancer risk. It is called C-Reactive Protein, or CRP, and there is also a simple blood test you can take to determine if your levels are elevated. Periodic testing for CRP is extremely important on the Healthy Breast journey and is a great way to monitor your progress.
C-Reactive Protein and Cancer
C-Reactive Protein is produced by the immune and fat cells and processed in the liver. High amounts of it equals high levels of inflammation occurring somewhere in the body. Inflammation is connected to almost every disease condition, including Breast Cancer. Continue reading
One of the major changes that occurs when a person suffers from chronic stress is too much adrenaline and cortisol in the system. Now research has discovered a direct link between adrenaline and Breast Cancer.
Adrenaline and the Fight or Flight Response
Adrenaline, also known as epinephrine, is a hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands.
More than likely, you have already heard of the “fight or flight” response, also known as the stress response. The stress response happens automatically and is part of the Sympathetic Nervous System. The body goes into this mode in response to any kind of threat. It could be a stranger walking towards you in a dark alley, a wild animal chasing you, a fight with your spouse or a looming deadline.
It’s officially BHAM month again, Healing Divas. This stands for Breast Health Awareness Month and it happens every October. I decided to rename “Pink Month” to this a few years ago and the movement has really taken off!
If you are on the Healthy Breast path, then you know that every day is your opportunity to be and do your best. However, October is your chance to reflect, refocus and turn up the dial on your commitment to yourself and your health.
We all know zinc as a go-to for when we get sick (along with vitamin C, of course). But do you know the reason why? Zinc is a heavy-duty immune system stimulator. And when it comes to Breast Cancer, it can be a super-protector as well.
Did you know that periodontal disease affects half the American population? This is a true health crisis, since gum disease can not only lead to tooth loss but is also connected to dozens of chronic disease conditions, including breast cancer. There is a way out of the cycle of periodontal disease and chronic illness, however. As it turns out, flossing may just prevent Breast Cancer. Continue reading
Studies suggesting that screening tests like mammograms should be used less do not always find receptive audiences. ~ Ed.
Every year, millions of women flock to their doctors to get their annual mammograms, a breast cancer screening procedure that involves pressing a woman’s breasts between two metal platforms to scope out tumors. But surgeons everywhere are starting to question the controversial practice, which studies show isn’t even an effective screening tool, and is actually harmful to the bodies of women who receive it.

Maintaining healthy hormone levels can be a challenge but it is possible. Following a diet that supports the thyroid is a good place to start. It should provide certain nutrients, like iodine and selenium, that naturally support normal thyroid health. Additionally, it’s important to be mindful of other types of food that can actually interfere with hormone balance and thyroid function. Let’s take a closer look at how you can use the power of nutrition to support your thyroid and encourage normal hormone balance. Continue reading
Your urine color reflects what you eat and drink, and even the medications you take. But it’s a red alert for any shade of red, black, or brown, especially when accompanied by other symptoms.
Pretty much everyone knows his or her normal urine color (or subtle range of urine colors). If the shade changes a great deal, however, we can become a little alarmed.
But hold on. While urine color is a centuries-old diagnostic tool, many shades of yellow can be perfectly normal, even if they vary from nearly colorless to dark yellow. Continue reading
Scientists explain how being overweight makes breast cancer cells more aggressive
Researchers from Helmholtz Zentrum München, Technische Universität München (TUM), and Heidelberg University Hospital carried out a study on how extra weight makes breast cancer cells more aggressive. Using human tissue from breast cancer metastases, the researchers found that the enzyme known as ACC1 (acetyl-CoA-carboxylase 1) — a key component of fatty acid synthesis — is inhibited by high levels of cytokines. They found that obesity causes the release of cytokines into the bloodstream that affect the metabolism of breast cancer cells, which in turn make them more aggressive. Continue reading
As more and more consumers become aware of the risks of traditional cancer treatments, hospitals in the United States are finally beginning to respond. Some doctors are becoming open to modalities which can complement traditional cancer treatment. U.S.-based clinical trials show cyroablation to be especially effective for early-stage Breast Cancers.
It happened subtly, over the course of a decade or two. Household cleaners went from being largely soap-based to primarily chemical-based. Cosmetics such as lipstick and blush went from being made from bees wax, plant-based extracts, and strawberries to being pumped full of lead, parabens, and synthetic dyes. A loaf of bread went from being nothing more than flour, yeast, sugar, and salt to a confusing concoction of additives and artificial flavorings. Continue reading
