Sweetened drinks are the biggest source of added sugar in the average American’s diet, according to the American Heart Association.
Here’s some less-than refreshing news about soda: even sugar-free versions were associated with a higher risk of death in a study of 452,000 people in 10 countries. Continue reading
When any human over the age of 18 decides they no longer want to continue with chemotherapy, due to the side effects the poison inflicts on the body, physicians and the government don’t bat an eye.
The patient is referred to hospice care where they will live out their remaining time on earth in a state of comfort until the morphine and lack of essential nutrients needed to sustain life takes its toll, and death ensues.
Unfortunately, if you are under the age of 18, this right is not up to you, and it is not up to your parent. Continue reading

When it comes to treating somebody who is just beginning to suffer Alzheimer’s disease, the conventional medicine folks have a big problem.
They don’t know how the disease starts. So they can’t catch it at an early stage. In fact, 20 years ago when my mother was developing dementia, her doctor didn’t know a thing about it. Continue reading
If stomach cancer is diagnosed, the next step is to determine the stage of the cancer, which indicates how far it has spread, if at all. – ID 82025069 © Christian Weiß | Dreamstime.com
More than 26,000 people in the United States—approximately 16,000 men and 10,000 women—are diagnosed with stomach cancer every year, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), and nearly 11,000 die from it.

Can we count on normal PSA levels by age? Regardless of any PSA reference range for different age groups, there’s actually no ‘normal’ prostate-specific antigen level that guarantees you’re free from prostate cancer.
What is a PSA Screening?
A prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening a simple blood test that measures that assesses your risk of prostate cancer. Generally, your risk of having prostate cancer increases along with your PSA level, and in most men, PSA concentrations rise with age, for various reasons.
Although experts have devised age-adjusted PSA reference ranges to estimate your risk of prostate cancer, there really are no truly normal PSA levels by age. In other words, although PSA can give you an idea of your risk, there’s no guarantee that you have prostate cancer if your PSA rises above a certain mark, nor are you assured of being cancer-free if your PSA remains below a particular threshold.

It’s time… I’ve held my story in for six months, save for a few close friends and family knowing, and it’s time to break the silence of fear. The fear of repercussions that would come from sharing this with anyone who may not know me personally or understand the nuances of what happened. The fear of offending someone who holds a different belief system than I do. Fear of someone who may think I am ungrateful or unkind. Fear that I may get negative feedback or retaliation.
Despite all of those fears, I have to trust that speaking out and sharing my story could help a mama or daddy out there somewhere find the courage they need to stand up for themselves. I am writing this to you… so here it goes…(deep breath)… Continue reading

Colorectal cancer is typically considered a disease of aging — most new cases are diagnosed in people over age 50. But even as the rates decrease in older adults, scientists have documented a worrisome trend in the opposite direction among patients in their 20s and 30s.
Now, data from national cancer registries in Canada add to the evidence that colorectal cancer rates are rising in younger adults. The increases may even be accelerating. Continue reading
In the first prospective study of directly measured body fat distribution and cancer risk, investigators found that higher levels of abdominal and thigh fat are associated with an increased risk of aggressive form of cancer.
It’s not the amount of fat in your body but where it’s stored that may increase your risk for heart attack, stroke and diabetes. Continue reading
An estimated 12.5 million people had some form of cancer in 2009, according to the American Cancer Society.. Another 25.8 million have diabetes.. These two preventable diseases are responsible for millions of deaths worldwide each year.
In the constant battle to stay healthy, many of us know that too much sugar in the blood can lead to diabetes and that by controlling our diets we can both prevent and even reverse the disease. But, could the same be said for cancer? Continue reading
