it combats cancer: Research
has revealed that a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol can combat
breast cancer by converting a cancer-promoting estrogen into a more protective
riety. The phytochemical sulforaphane raises the levels of certain
cancer-fighting enzymes that defend the body from cigarette smoke, fumes,
pesticides & other known carcinogens.
tips: Broccoli leaves actually
contain more beta-carotene (i.e. pre-Vitamin A) than the florets - use leaves
in purees, soups, stir-fries. To preserve broccoli's valuable nutrients,
steam or microwave, being careful not to overcook.
Avoid garnishing broccoli with fatty cheeses and creams instead,
squeeze on some lemon juice or sprinkle with toasted bread crumbs.
it combats cancer: Its
plentiful store of vitamin C works as an antioxidant and may also reduce
absorption of cancer-causing nitro amines
from the soil or processed foods.
Papaya contains folacin (also
known as folic acid), which has been shown to minimize cervical ysplasia and
Diet tips: Choose papayas that are at least half yellow in the store - fully green ones were probably picked too soon and won't ripen properly. You can serve papaya in fruit salad, add it to a garlic-and-spinach pasta mixture, or just eat it on its own, letting the juice dribble down your arm.
it combats cancer:
Garlic's immune-enhancing alliums compounds block carcinogens from entering
cells and slow tumor development. Diallyl sulfide, a component of garlic oil,
has also been shown to render carcinogens in the liver inactive.
Studies have linked garlic - as well as onions, leeks, and chives - to
lower risk of stomach and colon cancer.
it combats cancer: Research
has shown that indoles, nitrogen compounds found in kale and other leafy greens,
may help stop the conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells in
estrogen-sensitive tissues. In addition, isothiocyanates, phytochemicals found
in kale, are thought to suppress tumor growth and block cancer-causing
substances from reaching their targets.
tips: A cruciferous vegetable, kale requires quick cooking - blanching or
steaming - to preserve its nutrients. When you're done, save the nutrient-rich
cooking liquid for soups or sauces. You can also use whole large leaves to wrap
fillings or to layer in lasagna.
How it combats cancer:
This nutrient-dense food contains many anticancer properties. It's loaded
with beta-carotene, which may protect DNA in the cell nucleus from cancer-causing
chemicals outside the nuclear membrane.
tips: Go for freshness when picking potatoes - canned arieties contain less
beta-carotene and vitamins C and B. Naturally sweet and creamy, mashed sweet
potatoes can be enhanced with a little apple juice. Or whip the cooked tubers
with orange zest or orange juice and season with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
it combats cancer:
Grapefruits, like oranges and other citrus fruits, contain monoterpenes,
believed to help prevent cancer by sweeping carcinogens out of the body. Some
studies show that grapefruit can inhibit the proliferation of breast-cancer
cells in vitro. It also contains vitamin C, beta-carotene, and folic acid.
Diet tips: Grapefruit can be sweetened with brown sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup or honey; vanilla extract, fresh mint, and almonds also accent the fruit's flavor. Grapefruit juice will give you the antioxidants and phytochemicals that fight cancer, but it's missing the fiber that fresh, whole grapefruit offers.
it combats cancer: Avocados
are rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that attacks free radicals in
the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats. Ounce for ounce,
avocados also supply 60 percent more potassium than bananas and are a strong
source of beta-carotene.
Diet tips: Store
avocados at room temperature until they soften. If you don't eat the fruit
immediately after cutting, sprinkle on some lemon or lime juice to keep it from
darkening. Add chunks or slices to salads and sandwiches or spread mashed
avocado on bread.
they combat cancer: Seaweed
and other sea vegetables contain beta-carotene, protein, vitamin B12, fiber, and
chlorophyll, as well as chlorophylones - important fatty acids that may help in
the fight against breast cancer. Also, many sea vegetables have high
concentrations of the minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and iodine.
Diet tips: Sea vegetables come fresh, dried, or powdered. Both the Japanese & the Irish regularly use them as flavorings for soups, stir-fried over rice.
it combats cancer: Soy
contains several types of phytoestrogens -weak, non-steroidal estrogens that
could help prevent both breast and prostate cancer by blocking and suppressing
cancerous changes. Genistein, one type of phytoestrogen, also lowers
breast-cancer risk by inhibiting the growth of epithelial cells & new blood
vessels that tumors require to flourish.
tips: Tofu is made by coagulating the protein in soybeans - much the way cheese
is produced. While bland on its own, tofu absorbs other flavors when cooked,
making it perfect for stir-fries, dips, spreads, shakes, even cheesecake. It's
also a good high-protein substitute for meat, whole milk & mayonnaise.
CAUSES OF CANCER
number ONE killer in Singapore is cancer (followed by Heart Disease &
Stroke). Not all cancers are the same. 1/3 is curable. 1/3 is preventable. 2
factors of cancer that cannot be controlled are AGE & FAMILY HISTORY.
1. Smoking is very often the main cause of cancer. It kills us silently and drains money from us quietly. There're 4,000 harmful chemicals (though in diluted form) in one stick of cigarette. Taking one puff is 600 times worst than inhaling the exhaust fumes from vehicles.
2. Some food that cause cancer are:
Deep Fried Food
Food that is high in fat causes our bile to secrete acid that contains a
chemical which is a promoter of cancer cells.
Food that contains preservatives, too much salt or nitrates (e.g. Canned food,
veggies & sausages, etc.)
Overnight Rice (where Aflatoxin is accumulated)
2.7 Food that is low in fiber: Our body needs 25 gm of both soluble & insoluble fibers daily. We must drink at least 1.5 liters of plain water a day.
3. Types of fat and which is the best?
Olive Oil - The best of all oils. It does not absorb in our body.
ii. Peanut Oil - It contains Vitamin E. Only a small dosage is recommended.
Vegetable Fat - Palm oil is worst than coconut oil. It is high in
cholesterol and highly unsaturated.
Coconut Oil - It has saturated fat.
Specific Food & Beverages
Cabbage is highly recommended for health reason.
Tomato is best eaten raw with a bit of olive oil for better absorption. Other
alternative is to take tomato sauce.
Coffee is good because it contains 2 anti-oxidants. Inhaling the coffee aroma
for half each day is equivalent to eating two oranges a day. However, the
residue of over-burned coffee is extremely bad for health. It can cause cancer.
Tea, as long as it is in its original tea leaves and not processed into BOH or
Lipton packets, it is good for health. Tea contains 30 anti-oxidants.
Recommended dosage is 4 cups a day.
and be fit
Frequency: 3 to 5 times a week.
: Intensity: Exercise
till we sweat and breath deeply.
: Types of exercises: Find one that suits your age,
we reach the age of 45 & above, it is recommended that we go for regular
comprehensive health examination. Early detection may save lives.
SALT THE CURE OF PAIN

water/rinse your mouth with salt water if you have a sore throat because salt
can reduce inflammation.
method has actually been proven (medically) to be really effective and it really
can help to reduce inflammation.

After tedious/strenuous exercise, soaking your feet with salt water
can help to prevent cramps and pain; and also prevent from skin irritation. Hope
it will be of help to you.
HONEY & CINNAMON
It is found that mixture of Honey and Cinnamon cures most of the diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Ayurvedic as well as Unani medicine have been using honey as a vital medicine for centuries. Scientists of today also accept honey as a Ram Ban (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
