is the most feared of all diseases.
People immediately associate cancer with dying. Unlike other killing
diseases, cancer usually causes a slow death involving great pain and
suffering, with much mental anguish and a feeling of hopelessness. In
addition, the mental and physical stress it puts on loved ones and caretakers
is beyond calculation.
You have 76 trillion cells in your body that must constantly undergo
reproduction if the body is to remain alive and functioning correctly.
Some of these cells reproduce every few days while others reproduce
after a much longer period. As each old cell reaches the end of its
life cycle, it reproduces and is replaced by a fresh young cell. The
natural process of cell death is called apoptosis. The normal death
rate of cells is controlled by a "biological clock" gene called
the P53 gene.
know that most cancers are initiated by the action of free radicals.
Free radicals are unstable atoms or molecules with at least one unpaired
electron. These unpaired electrons want and need a partner. Consequently,
the unstable free radicals, which have the ability to attract electrons
from other atoms or molecules, go about swiping electrons from other
stable atoms or molecules. This taking of an electron from another atom
means that the free radical is now balanced and is no longer a free
radical. But the atom or molecule from which the electron was taken
is now damaged, and it has become a free radical itself. This sets off
a chain reaction of electron stealing and consequently damage within
the body, similar to little bombs exploding within the cell structure.
In their search for electrons, free radicals do a lot of structural
damage to healthy cells. Cumulative free radical damage causes the plasma
membrane of the cell to break down. When this happens, transportation
of nutrients, oxygen, and water into the cell and the removal of waste
products and toxins out of the cell become compromised. This causes
the cell to either starve to death, die in a sea of accumulated toxic
waste, or, if the DNA of the cell is also affected, it can cause the
cell to reproduce daughter cells incorrectly, thereby causing cell mutation.
mutated cell is now genetically incorrect and does not behave as a normal
cell. The P53 gene of the cell is affected and the natural biological
clock is stopped, eliminating apoptosis. Without apoptosis, the mutated
cancer cell doesn't die. In order to sustain its growth a cancer cell
steals nutrients from surrounding cells and begins to rapidly reproduce
damaged, mutated cells in geometric progression (2, 4, 8, 16, etc.).
Over a period of time the cancer cell develops into a cancerous mass
or tumor. Cancerous cells from the mass or tumor can be transported
to other tissues or organs where they imbed and begin to grow and reproduce
recent years the ability of the medical community to diagnose and treat
cancer has greatly improved. Unfortunately, however, the vast majority
of cancers still lack effective treatments. The choices for conventional
treatment involve some form of surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy.
These procedures are invasive, treat only the symptoms, and often cause
side effects more severe than the disease itself.
Alan Levine of the University of California Medical School observes,
"Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy."
He also states: "Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon,
or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade...."
methods treat cancer as a localized disease to be treated in a localized
manner by cutting out the tumor, irradiating it, or flooding the body
with toxic (often carcinogenic) drugs in order to destroy the tumor.
the other hand, natural healing methods consider cancer to be a systemic
disease. Emphasis is placed on rebuilding the body's natural immunity
and strengthening its natural ability to destroy cancer cells. The key
is to Alkalize, Cleanse, Nourish, and Balance the Body, allowing it
to heal itself naturally.
on cancer (which has been corroborated by the National Academy of Sciences,
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Cancer
Institute, and the American Cancer Society) found that 80 to 90 percent
of all cancers are produced as a result of life-style factors, (smoking,
alcohol, lack of exercise), exposure to chemicals, environmental factors,
and dietary practices.
are surrounded by natural and technologically produced toxins. These
environmental poisons are present in the air we breathe, the foods we
eat and the water we drink. In today's industrial world, we cannot escape
them. We are exposed to more toxins in 15 minutes than our great-grandparents
were exposed to during their entire lives. The majority of these toxins
are considered to be cancer-causing carcinogens, and, as unbelievable
as it sounds, the most toxic environment to which we are exposed daily
is the environment in our own homes.
of us contributes to the destruction of our own health.
our headlong rush to make our lives easier, safer, faster, more fun,
and more convenient, we have changed our lifestyles. And, both accidentally
and on purpose, we have also changed our environment. We have created
the toxic environment necessary for a variety of old and new disease
microbes and degenerative disease conditions, such as cancer, to proliferate
and devastate our society.
lifestyles, environmental factors, and nutrition are the most common
risk factors for developing cancer, it stands to reason that many of
these cancers can be destroyed, substantially reduced, or their development
reversed by reducing or eliminating the contributing risk factors. There
are some risk factors like air and water which are difficult to control
but can nevertheless be improved. And you do have almost total control
over some of the other known risk factors such as smoking, alcohol,
intake of chemicals and drugs, and diet and nutrition.
and nutrition appear to be factors in 60 percent of women's cancers,
40 percent of men's cancers, and 75 percent of cardiovascular diseases.
Space doesn't allow for a discourse on diets and what foods to eat to
reduce possible cancer development, except to say, reduce your intake
of fat, red meat, smoked meats or those preserved by nitrates, and eliminate
from your diet white sugars, white flour products, and especially all
soft drinks which are up to 500 times more acidic than your blood, causing
a cascade of health problems.
most doctors don't counsel cancer patients or those that are at high
risk for cancer about nutrition. However, research shows that ingesting
the correct foods and supplements may prevent cancer, boost the immune
system and energy levels, and give the body a fighting chance to prevent
cancer or heal itself. A healthy diet strengthens the immune system,
slows tumor growth, protects against further metastasis and reduces
the overwhelming negative side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.
repeatedly show that there is a substantial reduction in cancer risk
in those who eat or juice the necessary amounts of fresh fruits and
vegetables. Only nine percent of Americans eat the recommended five
daily servings. Research has found that it is the antioxidants in fruit
and vegetables that confer additional protection against free radical
induced cancer. Low blood levels of antioxidants are associated with
an increase in death rates from many types of cancer.
of the most promising areas in cancer prevention involving nutrition
is in the area of chemoprevention. Chemoprevention is the concept that
natural substances found in whole fresh foods provide powerful weapons
against cancer, and against other chronic ailments as well. Chemoprevention
is NOT chemotherapy. Instead of toxic poisons, chemoprevention employs
non-toxic nutraceuticals to develop optimal health and to counteract
cancer and other chronic and degenerative diseases.
is a food substance or part of a food that provides medical or health
benefits, including the prevention of, and/or treatment of disease.
They are naturally occurring compounds found in plants, algae, microbials,
and other biological sources which support specific bodily health functions.
One of the most powerful nutraceutical chemopreventatives for cancer
is an extract from red raspberry seeds and concentrated fruit called
Acid is a nutraceutical. It contains a naturally occurring phenolic
compound that has very strong anti-oxidant properties. It is a potent
anti-carcinogen. Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations within
a cell's DNA. It is also considered to be a cancer inhibitor which has
the ability to restore apoptosis or normal cell death in cancer cells.
In addition, research has found it to be antibacterial and anti-viral.
Daniel Nixon of the Hollings Cancer Institute at the Medical University
of South Carolina has been working with Ellagic Acid from red raspberry
seed in his cancer studies.
Nixon found that ingesting 40mg of Ellagic Acid daily, which is the
amount of Ellagic Acid contained in 1 cup of red raspberries, can cause
cancer cells to undergo apoptosis (natural cell death). This is important
because when cancer cells undergo apoptosis it effectively stops their
geometric reproductive progression. The cancer cells die a normal
death and are not reproduced. In other words, Ellagic Acid reinstates
the apoptosis (natural cell death) causing action of the P53 gene.
Nixon also has shown that human cervical cells which are infected with
the human papilloma virus (which is considered to be the main cause
of cervical cancer) are also killed.
investigations and researchers, both in the United States and in Europe,
found that daily consumption of Ellagic Acid from red raspberries had
positive responses in:
of perodontal disease
- protection of the liver from toxic injury
- promotion of liver regeneration
- promotion of faster wound healing
- reduction of radiation induced chromosomal damage
- slowing the spread of the HIV virus in the human body
- slowing the degenerative process of aging
- prevention of neural tube birth defects
- reduction of neurodegenerative diseases
- reduction of diabetic retinopathy
Acid is a super antioxidant and a potent anticarcinogen which protects
the cells against free radical damage. It is also a very powerful anti-viral
and anti-bacterial agent. Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations
within a cell's DNA. It is also considered to be a cancer inhibitor
with the ability to induce apoptosis or normal death in many different
types of cancer cells.
RBC's Ellagic Acid in the form of the "Immune 360" product
and Marine Bio Coral Calcium (find these superior products at
RBC Wellness Products) to the following cancer prevention guidelines
is an excellent way to reduce the chance of developing cancer:
a desirable body weight
- Eat a varied diet
- Include a variety of both vegetables and fruits in the daily diet
- Eat more high-fiber foods, such as whole grain cereals, legumes,
vegetables, and fruits
- Cut down on total fat intake
- Limit or better yet eliminate consumption of alcoholic beverages
- Limit or better yet eliminate salt-cured, smoked and nitrate-preserved
Grange recognizes that alkalinity is the key to optimum health and that
Marine Bio Coral Calcium dramatically increases the beneficial effects
of Ellagic Acid.
alkalinity at the cellular level equates to optimum health.
pH 7.4 is Health - 7.2 is Death.
1 gram of Marine Bio's Coral Calcium to a quart of distilled water raises
the pH of the water to an alkaline 11.5 - 11.73. The 1 gram of Coral
Calcium immediately increases the alkaline level by 100,000 times and
a the same time adds one billion free radical fighting electrons.
Bio's Coral Calcium is believed to be the most powerful antioxidant
Marine Bio ionic form Coral Calcium, the "King of Minerals,"
is immediately bioavailable.
calcium and other minerals in Marine Bio's Coral Calcium (almost identical
in composition and proportion to human bone structure) become immediately
ionic in the water, allowing the calcium, magnesium and trace minerals
from the ocean to be readily available to the cells.
Marine Bio's Coral Calcium lowers the surface tension of the water,
allowing it to penetrate and hydrate the cells more effectively, carrying
in nutrients and removing toxins and waste residues more effectively.
