The Curious Case of “Pink” Fried Chicken in the Fight Against Cancer

“The Sugar Destroyer”

Breakthrough research reveals a solution so tailor-made to battle diabetes, it can regenerate the cells that naturally make your insulin! And that’s just the beginning…

You could reduce insulin requirements, wean yourself off expensive drugs and finally eat whatever you want.

Coined “The Sugar Destroyer” this blood sugar miracle is natural, safe and available to you right now. But best yet, you can have every last detail on this “new hope” absolutely FREE today. Read on to learn more…

I hope you’re sitting down for this one…

It’s called “Buckets for the Cure.”

In the guise of raising money for breast cancer, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure (the largest grass-roots breast cancer group in the world) has teamed up with fast food giant KFC.

And decided to sell KFC chicken in pink cardboard buckets…

Yes, the Colonel is now pretty in pink… for The Cure.

And why not? After all, the KFC franchise is in business to make money. The bigger question is what is the Komen foundation thinking?

Once again, it becomes obvious that Cancer is little more than big business…

Komen is not at all selective about what causes cancer, or what might cure cancer. (They still recommend mammograms…a subject we can explore more in depth in a future issue.) This KFC campaign is a perfect example of “greed-colored-pink.”

It makes you wonder who Komen will partner with next… Cigarette makers? Pesticide manufacturers? If the only criteria is potential for profit – and pink packaging – then anyone is a candidate.

The issue of cancer and diet…

The outcry over this marketing campaign has been enormous. Both KFC and Komen have been tarred with the same brush. What is really going on here?

Evidently, the idea of buying fast food chicken to support a cure for breast cancer just doesn’t sit very well.

That’s understandable. Fast food chicken is coated in starch – which creates carcinogens called acrylamides when fried. Acrylamides are suspected of not only increasing the risk of breast cancer, but ovarian and endometrial cancer.

Not the message you want to send in a campaign that is supposedly geared to research that would prevent and fight breast cancer.

But that’s the Cancer Industry at work. Here at THB, we expose medical mainstream vested interests all the time. As unsettling as this newest “pink-marketing” campaign is, it is really nothing new.

However, it does highlight a vital issue in the fight against cancer…

Your diet really is one of your best weapons against cancer!

The Komen foundation may be taking it very lightly, but simple changes in your diet can make a big difference in your risk of a lot of different cancers.

It’s a choice you get to make three times a day, every day.

There’s a wealth of research done on how diet influences health. Let’s ignore the Pink Buckets for now and take a look at how your own food choices stack up…

Tired of Trying To Keep Track of Everything You’re
Supposed To Be Scared Of?

The Big C, Heart Attacks, Strokes, Fatigue, Aging, Arthritis… You know they’re out there, they’re killers, and they have too many causes to count…

But if you had to worry about them all, you’d end up a paranoid ball of stress.  That’s no way to go through life.

Wouldn’t it relieve the stress if you knew you had the most powerful and fastest cures at hand if and when you ever have to face them?

Read on to learn how a private research team can give you exactly that…

The Cancer Fighters

Cruciferous Vegetables

Surely you knew these would be at the top of the list. Broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. All of these contain chemicals that seem to turn on your body’s natural detoxifying enzymes. They also block tumor growth and encourage cancer cells to eliminate themselves.

One study showed that the compounds from these vital veggies shrunk prostate tumors to half their size in one month.

Tomatoes

The juicy red color comes from a powerful antioxidant called lycopene. Many studies have shown lycopene to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. It also inhibits cancer cell growth in breast, lung and uterine cancers. Lycopene appears to interfere with abnormal cell growth. And it has a strengthening effect on the immune system. Cooked tomato products make lycopene the most available for the body to use.

Dark, leafy greens

Spinach, kale, swiss chard and other greens are high in carotenoids – antioxidants that destroy free radicals before they can damage your cells. One recent study showed that green leafy vegetables definitely reduces the risk of lung cancer.

Berries

Strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries and blackberries are loaded with polyphenols that inhibit tumor growth. In tests, extracts of strawberry reduced the growth of breast cancer cells by 53% and prostate cancer cells by 43%.6 All berries seem to help destroy cancer cells in the colon.

Sulfurous Foods

Garlic, onions, leeks, shallots and chives promote the death of cancer cells in the colon, lung, breast and prostate. Garlic, in particular, reduces the risk of colon cancer. It also helps fight the bacteria H. pylori, which can cause stomach cancer.

Fatty Fish

The risk of cancer is significantly lower in people who eat fish at least twice a week.9 Small fish like anchovies, sardines and small mackerel have fewer environmental toxins. Wild-caught salmon is also a good source of healthy omega-3 fats.

Grass-fed Beef

Grass-fed beef is much lower in fat than a grain-fed steer. It is much higher in omega-3s that can lower your risk of cancer. Omega-3s dramatically slow the growth of cancer and keep it from spreading.

Spices

Several spices have anti-inflammatory and tumor-fighting powers. Curcumin goes after cancer cells. So does ginger and turmeric. And like garlic, turmeric attacks the inflammation caused by H. pylori.

Green Tea

The polyphenols in green tea are cancer terminators. Cultures that drink a lot of green tea have a much lower incidence of cancer overall. In a three year study of women with ovarian cancer, green tea inhibited tumor growth. The women who drank at least one cup of green tea a day had a 56% better survival rate.

There are lots more cancer-fighting foods, of course, but making an effort to get as many of the ones above into your regular diet will go a long way in fighting off cancer.

But we still need to take a quick look at the foods that don’t do you any favors…

Foods to Avoid

Processed Meats

Cured meats almost always contain sodium nitrites. Ham, bacon, sausage, cold cuts and hot dogs wouldn’t look so good without them. Nitrites are a color fixer. They make meat that would normally be putrid gray look pink and fresh. But when you eat these foods, and your body starts to digest them, the nitrites are converted to nitrosamine, a carcinogen. This increases your risk of stomach cancer, colon cancer, and pancreatic cancer.

Fried Foods

French fries, chips, doughnuts and other commercially fried foods are diet disasters on so many levels. Frying in hydrogenated oils at high temperatures creates the acrylamides I mentioned before. And the effect on your waistline can be deadly. Obesity is a known cancer risk factor, resulting in 100,000 cases of cancer each year.

Sugar and Simple Carbohydrates

These foods are like rocket fuel when you eat them. Your blood glucose goes up and stays up until it can be normalized by insulin. That causes more than one problem. First, it contributes to overweight and obesity as mentioned before. Then, there’s the fact that it really is rocket fuel.

While it’s true that all cells are fed by sugar, cancer cells have a special appetite for glucose. When you eat sugar, you are feeding them with their favorite growth factor. And simple carbs do pretty much the same thing. One shocking study revealed that people who drink two or more sweetened soft drinks per week have a much higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

What about supplements?

There is a place for supplements in your life. A good multivitamin can be good insurance. You can determine other needs with your own health care professional.

But there is no substitute for real, whole foods. Despite all the research, we still don’t know about every nutrient that might be in healthy foods. Or how all the various nutrients work together naturally.

Thank goodness Big Pharma can’t patent broccoli. They’d extract what they think the active ingredient is… synthesize it… and charge a monopoly price for it. And it might never work like the real thing.

No… real, whole foods are the way to go. Organic if possible. Treat yourself to the whole rainbow of fruits, vegetables and healthy fish and meat.

And if you want to donate to the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer or any other cancer, forget the obligatory pink crusades.

Make a donation directly to a trusted organization that reflects healthy approaches to prevention and treatment of cancer. One you might want to check out is the Pine Street Foundation (pinestreetfoundation.org).

Leave the heartless marketing schemes to the vested interests who are making money from cancer. Recognize their agenda and steer clear. There are much better ways to stay healthy and cancer-free.
