Foods that combat cancer, helps with blood sugar and heart

Combats cancer, helps keep blood sugar stable and for a healthy heart

High blood sugar is linked to heart disease, whether you have diabetes or are just “working your way there”, by what you have been eating. Here is a list of foods for the heart, cancer and for diabetes.

If something, such as stress or medication is going on, your body is depleted of vitamins you must work to get them back in there. (It is like running a car without oil. You won’t for long because it will start breaking down.) Eyes need vitamins. Glaucoma has been found to be treatable with higher doses of vitamin C. and Paul Harvey touts a brand of vitamin, containing luetin for ocular nutrition for macular degeneration. (vitamin C and B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins. Higher doses will not hurt you as they are not stored in the body and must be replaced each day. What your body doesn’t need, it gets rid of.)

  • Alfalfa combats cancer and helps prevent cataracts.
  • Almonds- Magnesium rich, helps prevent cataracts, helps stop angina, cardiovascular diseases, reduces risk of diabetes, and helps relieve stress.

  • Soft drinks (Caffeine can cause dehydration that weakens the heart) Causes Rapid heartbeat. It takes 32 glasses of alkaline water at a pH of 9 to neutralize the acid in ONE 12 oz can of soda. For every can of soda, your body withdraws 20mg of calcium from the bones. When your body is an extremely acidic state, is when disease develops. Soda may contain
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup, which since the 1990’s has been used in most non-diet soda and packaged foods, including fruit drinks, instead of sugar, due to it’s low cost. Made from chemically engineered corn and will d pack on weight faster than sugar. High fructose corn syrup leads to increased risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, Adult Onset Diabetes Mellitus, can elevate insulin levels in women on the pill, anemia, defective connective tissue formation, and also accelerates aging, among other things. Fructose contributes to the obesity epidemic by increasing the appetite making one feel hungrier and does nothing to help control body weight. If sugar is used instead of the high fructose corn sweeteners its ingestion lowers immune function by reducing the ability of white blood cells to ingest and destroy bacteria.
  • Caffeine and sugar both cause dehydration, and massive depletion of minerals. Caffeine by itself- calcium excretion in the urine increases by 25%. When sugar was added, urinary calcium loss almost doubled (1). Calcium can be withdrawn from the bones and teeth. Diet pop may contain Aspartame ( Nutra Sweet) which has an alarming health record or Sucralose, also marketed as Splenda, which breaks down into small amounts of 1,6 -dichlorofructose, a chemical similar to chlorinated pesticides. There has not been adequate testing of this product before it was released for public use, and many of the post-approval studies are alarming. Acesulfame-k is a dangerous chemical. Carbonated water. Our bodies require oxygen to remain healthy. For every can of carbonated soda ingested, the amount of oxygen in the blood is decreased by 25% for up to three hours. If you are drinking several sodas per day, you are depriving yourself for a significant amount of oxygen. Phosphoric acid When too much is in the blood, calcium is leached from the bones, causing osteoporosis. Calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus must be maintained in the proper balance for bone health. Even in citrus sodas which contain citric acid instead of phosphoric acid, calcium is needed to normalize blood pH. The fastest growing group of people with osteoporosis in this country is teenagers….because of the huge number of sodas they consume.

Cold temperatures in winter and keeping the air conditioning too low in summer can cause heart attacks. Cold temperatures cause blood vessels to tighten, interfering with circulation and straining the heart. (Dress in several layers in winter and in summer don’t keep the AC too cool.)

AVOID MSG. Every person is different so they will have different reactions. Following is a list of some of the common symptoms one may see:

Abdominal pain, achiness, angina, back pain, chest pain, cramps, foot pain, fibromyalgia, hand pain, headache, jaw pain, joint pain, pain in the bones, migraine, neck pain, numbness, stiffness, tightness, extreme drop in blood pressure, rapid heartbeat (tachycardia); angina; Cardiac Arrest Symptoms, swelling, fluid retention, depression, mood swings, attention deficit disorder (ADD); dizziness; light-headedness; disorientation; mental confusion, anxiety, panic attacks, hyperactivity, behavioral problems in children, rage episodes, lethargy, sleep disturbances (drowsiness or sleepiness and insomnia in others) numbness or paralysis; slurred speech, Meniere’s disease, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, irritable bowel, bloating acid reflux, asthma, shortness of breath, chest pain, runny nose, tightness in respiratory area, sneezing, hives or rash, mouth lesions, temporary tightness or partial paralysis (Skin), numbness or tingling of skin, flushing, sweating (hot flashes), dry mouth, swelling of prostrate, nocturia, blurred vision, difficulty focusing, temporary loss of vision, burning sensation in the back of the neck, forearms and chest, numbness in the back of the neck, radiating to the arms and back, tingling, warmth and weakness in the face, temples, upper back neck and arms, facial pressure or tightness, tooth pain, bronchospasm (difficulty breathing), difficulty in concentrating, convulsions, swelling of the throat, bruxism (grinding or clenching of the teeth) throbbing of the head, tinnitus, cancer-associated generation of free radicals and lipid peroxidation.

The level of vitamin B6 in a person’s body plays a role in glutamate metabolism, and the possible impact of marginal B6 intake should be considered in helping a person. (B 150 complex at Wal-Mart is also good for tinnitis and stress.)

But that is not enough as they also call it by other names!

Hidden Sources of MSG

Few people realize how prevalent MSG is. Fewer still realize that there are many different names for processed free glutamic acid.MSG is often combined with other substances and renamed, or created by the manufacturing process.

MSG increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and certain types of cancer.

If you eat out, you are almost guaranteed to get a nasty dose of MSG, a flavor enhancer. KFC puts in in everything–chicken, potatoes, gravy. MSG goes by many aliases so if you ask if they use MSG they can deny it. Many restaurant employees and their managers, will swear they don’t use MSG but ask for the ingredient list and you WILL see MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein everywhere.

Moms: Infant formula AVOID! uses MSG product disguised under one of the many aliases used for MSG (See the list of other names MSG goes by)

Many items that don’t have MSG on the label will have: Hidden under many different aliases in order to fool those who are aware of how deadly MSG is . We need to be aware instead of blindly feeding this to our children!

 

AVOID!  The following are all aliases of Monosodium glutamate (MSG) a nasty marketing trick by manufacturers who know if you look at a label and don’t see Monosodium Glutamate you will buy it: Hydrolyzed corn gluten, Hydrolyzed soy protein, Hydrolyzed wheat protein Hydrolyzed protein such as vegetable protein, Calcium caseinate, Textured protein, Monopotassium glutamate, Glutamate, Glutamic acid, Gelatin, Sodium caseinate, Yeast nutrient, Autolyzed yeast.(The word “hydrolyzed” on the label is a good tip-off.  Also in restaurants if you ask if it has MSG they can say “no”. All restaurants are now using it in some form. Bad for hearts and diabetes.

The FDA has now approved spraying MSG on agricultural products. ANY fresh food may have some residual MSG on it, and processed food made from fresh fruit or vegetables may have MSG in it, too.– Fresh produce sprayed with Auxigro in the field. (Yes the EPA approved this!) AVOID! uses MSG product disguised under one of the many aliases used for MSG
