If you really want to stay healthy:

- eat plenty of organic raw foods

- drink lots of clean water

- exercise

- eat fiber

- stay away from processed foods

- stay away from dairy and meat products

I highly recommend the following book.

THE CHINA STUDY The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications For Diet, Weight Loss and Long-Term Health

by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M.Campbell II

- get plenty of sleep each night

- fast

- keep your mind clean 

- take vitamins, probiotics, etc. because our foods no longer contain all the nutrients that our body needs. (research them because not all vitamins are the same)

- try to avoid toxins from entering your body,

 these include make-up, shampoos, deodorants, cleaners, vaccines (research them) over the counter drugs instead look for natural remedies etc.

- here are some books

Only with conventional treatments will you find that the treatments are sometimes more dangerous (deadly) then the actual disease.

Treating the symptoms with conventional medicine is sometimes worse than doing nothing at all.

Treating the symptoms will never eliminate the cause, which will never cure the disease.

Only in finding the cause are you closer to eliminating the symptoms.

For only in treating the cause are you much closer to curing the disease.

Think Before You Pink

by Allyson Drosten-Brooks

Our country is currently facing a breast cancer epidemic. More women have died of breast cancer in the last 20 years than the number of Americans killed in World War I, World War II, and the Korean and Vietnam Wars combined. Breast cancer used to be seen predominantly in postmenopausal women but now it is the second leading cause of death in women age 25-54.

What’s going on?

Increasing evidence shows environmental factors are to blame. Breast cancer rates are much higher in industrialized countries such as North America and northern Europe than in developing countries. According to State of the Evidence 2006: What Is the Connection between the Environment and Breast Cancer?, a report that summarizes more than 350 studies on the environmental links to breast cancer, “Compelling scientific evidence points to some of the 100,000 synthetic chemicals in use today as contributing to the development of breast cancer, either by altering hormone function or gene expression”.

Some chemicals of concern are those that mimic estrogen in the body. Scientific evidence has shown that higher exposure to estrogens over a woman’s lifetime leads to a higher risk of developing breast cancer. The culprit? Hormone-containing personal care products. Parabens, a common ingredient found in lotions, shampoos, and other cosmetic products, are chemical preservatives that have been identified as estrogenic and disruptive of normal hormone function.

Pinkwashing: a term used to describe the activities of companies and groups that position themselves as leaders in the struggle to eradicate breast cancer while engaging in practices that may be contributing to the rising rates of the disease.
