Cancer and Whole Food Nutrition

Posted Jun 02 2008 6:04pm
In the most recent issue of Consumer Reports On Health magazine, there is a special report inside titled "Making sense of risks." It covers "today's best advice on prevention, detection, and treatment" of cancer. I have included below two paragraphs from the two page article that I thought readers of this blog could relate to:

Some foods - such as broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables - may have particularly potent anti- properties. But studies that have looked at the -fighting potential of specific nutrients in the form of supplements have yielded almost uniformly disappointing results.

Instead of obsessing about specific foods, nutrients, or supplements, it's best to eat a wide variety of healthful foods. Research continues to document the anti- benefits of a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains, and relatively low in saturated fat, alcohol, and meat. (Consumer Reports on Health volume 20 Number 3 pages 8-9)

If you have read previous articles in my blog, you will quickly see how this information relates to Whole Food Nutrition. The power of goes well beyond a balanced diet. are the bodies natural fuel for healing and health. No vitamin or supplement can even compare to the power of fresh, whole food nutrition.

Lisa Hark, PhD, RD wrote an article in the recent issue of Bottom Line Health titled "What Your Doctor Won't Tell You About Nutrition." In the opening paragraph she states "for optimal health, the latest research calls for nine to thirteen servings daily" (of fruits and vegetables). She continues to say "This dietary recommendation is linked to lower rates of serious diseases, such as and heart disease, but few Americans learn about this from their doctors." (Bottom Line Health volume 22 number 3 page 1)

Illness is on a steady rise in America and health costs are going through the roof. Save yourself the medical bills and prescription costs and start taking care of your health the way nature intended. Your body will heal itself as long as you give it the proper to do so.

Get all the servings of fruits and vegetables that Lisa Hark recommends, get the variety of fruits, vegetables, beans and grains that On Health magazine suggests. Take control of your health and make the decision to do something about it. As I have stated throughout this blog, the most convenient, lifestyle friendly way to get daily is by consuming . There simply is no better source of than .
