Sugar Identified As Top Cause For Obesity & Cancer Surge

Published

on

It seems incredibly hard to avoid sugar these days, with so many processed foods containing some form of it. But as research continues to unravel how our modern world’s food supply harms our well-being, there seems to be a dire emphasis on sugar as one of the main culprits for diseases.

The Credit Suisse Research Institute’s 2013 study concluded that as much as 40 percent of US healthcare expenditures are for diseases directly connected to the overconsumption of sugar. And more than $1 trillion is spent each year to fight the harmful health effects of sugar. Sugar and obesity are also linked to an increased risk of cancer, with obesity estimated to be responsible for 500,000 cancer cases worldwide each year.

How Sugar And Obesity Cause Cancer

Because sugar is not our body’s ideal fuel, it promotes more reactive oxygen species than fat, causing more free radicals, which then causes mitochondrial and nuclear DNA damage along with cell membrane and protein impairment.

Chronic overeating has also been found to generate a similar effect, as it places stress on endoplasmic reticulum, which is the membranous network located inside the mitochondria of the body’s cells. Because the ER can only handle a certain amount of nutrients at a time, an excess amount causes it to signal the cell to dampen the sensitivity of the insulin receptors on the surface of the cell. This causes insulin resistance, which is at the core of many chronic diseases, including cancer.

High-Fructose Corn Syrup Primary And Cancer

Obesity often results from over-consumption of refined fructose/sugar and not enough intermittent fasting. It can lead to chronic inflammation and an elevated production of certain hormones like estrogen, which can cause breast cancer.

Research from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has shown that refined sugar can not only increase your chances of breast cancer, but also raise your risk of tumors spreading to other organs. It also found that refined fructose in high-fructose corn syrup was the primary culprit for the breast tumors and metastasis.

High-fructose corn syrup is found in most processed foods and beverages.

Give Up Sugar To Avoid Cancer

The worldwide cancer epidemic is alarming, but one of the most powerful ways we can avoid and/or treat cancer is to stay away from sugar, as without it, cancer cannot thrive. This is because cancer’s food source is primarily sugar and excessive protein.

Cancer cells do not have the metabolic flexibility to burn carbs or fat for fuel, and can only survive with enough sugar. While German cancer researcher Dr. Otto Warburg discovered this in 1931, for which he was given a Nobel Prize, few experts have embraced this theory.

The best way to cut back on sugar and fructose consumption is pretty straightforward: switch to REAL foods. Not only will you get more nutritional value out of them, but you’ll cut your chances of sugar overload, obesity, and cancer as well.

It’s also best to cut back on the amount of sugar you add to your food and drink. You can opt for alternatives like stevia or luo han instead of sugar and/or artificial sweeteners. Also try adding fresh fruit to recipes and meals, as well as spices like cinnamon to your food and drink, instead of adding sugar.

The U.S. Government’s Role In Sugar Consumption

Despite the fact that sugar alone causes so many health problems and contributes so much national expense, U.S. regulators don’t encourage lower sugar consumption.

Both the sugar and corn industry are heavily subsidized by taxpayers. In fact, The Washington Post noted:

The [sugar] industry used to boast that its government protection does not cost taxpayers anything directly, but that claim has been exploded due to recent market developments that forced the federal government to, in effect, buy up tons and tons of sugar and sell it to ethanol refiners at a loss — so as to prop up prices. Taxpayers took a hit of some $258 million in fiscal 2014.

Cancer Screenings May Not Be The Best Prevention

While cancer screening is conventionally touted as being a necessary part of cancer prevention, researchers are now questioning the validity of this, saying the public service announcements that claim “cancer screening saves lives” are more misleading than truthful.

As Newsweek reported:

The problem, they say, is that the ubiquitous adage is based on the fact that deaths from the target disease may decline but fails to take into account deaths linked to factors related to the screening itself. Sure, screening for prostate cancer might reduce the incidence of death from that specific disease, but does it reduce overall mortality for the person who got the screening? Maybe not.

For example, prostate cancer screening is known to return ‘numerous’ false positives . . . and contributes to over 1 million prostate biopsies a year. The procedure is ‘associated with serious harms, including admission to hospital and death.’ What’s more, men diagnosed with prostate cancer are ‘more likely to have a heart attack or commit suicide in the year after diagnosis’ . . . In both cases, the deaths aren’t due to the cancer itself but rather are linked to the screening.

Additional Lifestyle Tips

Make sure you’re always eating real food and avoiding processed foods and sugars, especially fructose. You should reduce non-fiber carbs and instead have large volumes of fresh, organic vegetables and fats from high-quality sources like avocados, seeds, nuts, and raw cacao nibs. Also make sure to get enough exercise, as it increases mitochondrial biogenesis, which is essential to fight cancer. Other things to consider are fasting three hours before bed, optimizing your Vitamin D intake, steering clear of BPA, phthalates, and other xenoestrogens, maintaining a healthy weight, limiting your protein intake, and avoiding drinking too much alcohol.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needless acupressure is often used on children.
