The Good Fat Grocery List

If you’re tempted to cut out fats in your diet to lose weight, you’re going to miss out on a wide range of delicious foods with good-for-you fats. Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) and polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) are healthy unsaturated fats that improve your cholesterol, keep your heart healthy, and lower your risk of stroke. These fats can help your body absorb vitamin E, which is important for skin and nail health. Learn more about MUFA and PUFA-rich foods to add to your grocery cart to improve your health.


Cancer is Man-Made (Part II)

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that …cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

mummyIn the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found … no signs of cancer—except for one isolated case.

Professor Michael Zimmerman said: “In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases.”  Therefore, the virtual absence of tumors and malignancies in mummies must necessarily be interpreted as evidence that cancer was indeed rare in ancient times.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies—and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

The food you eat … the air you breathe … the clothes you wear … the water you drink … the personal care products you use … the medications you take … the water you bathe in … virtually everything you consume, and everything you do—or are exposed to—causes cancer these days!

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in 
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

  • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
  • Genetically modified food
  • Most laundry detergents
  • Commercial hair dyes
  • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
    chloride, and acrolein)
  • Granite countertops (which emit radon)
  • Rancid peanuts and seeds
  • Canola oil
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Food laced with pesticides
  • Chemicals from aerosol cans
  • Mammograms
  • X-Rays
  • Food microwaved in plastic containers (including
    plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen
    TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
  • Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said: 

There is Nothing in the Natural Environment That Can Cause Cancer … So It Has to Be a Man-Made Disease

Given the prevalence of cancer-causing factors in the modern world, what can you do to escape cancer?

Many scientists agree that a healthy diet … regular physical activity … and maintaining a healthy weight can prevent about one-third of the most common cancers.

But … eating healthy is not a guarantee that you’ll never get cancer.  Even those who think they have a healthy diet are not immune to cancer.  Consider the case of Linda McCartney, the late wife of Beatle Paul McCartney.  She was a life-long vegetarian, who also wrote a book on vegetarian cooking and produced a line of frozen vegetarian meals.  Yet, despite her healthy eating, she died of breast cancer at the age of 56.

Regular physical activity—although definitely a healthy thing to do—is not a guarantee either.  Consider Lance Armstrong, 7-time Tour de France cycling champion.  He engaged in more physical activity than most people, and yet he was diagnosed with Stage 2 testicular cancer.

Maintaining a healthy weight also does not assure you of immunity from cancer.  Many physically fit celebrities have fallen prey to cancer—Patrick Swayze, Jaclyn Smith, Robert Urich, Suzanne Somers, Farrah Fawcett, Ryan O’Neal, to name a few.
