Cut canned food from your diet, report says
You can quickly reduce your risk of cancer by eliminating canned foods from your diet, according to a new report released by the nonprofit Breast Cancer Fund and the Silent Spring Institute. Metal food cans are lined with a substance linked not only to cancer but also to infertility, obesity, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and even early puberty in girls.
So just what is this horror? Keep reading. . .
This may be the world’s best cancer cure
“If I could pick only one treatment to cure my cancer, this would be it,” says a top expert on alternative cancer treatments. It’s one of the world’s most powerful cancer cures, according to research by Jim Sheridan, a scientist working at the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research.
Even the mainstream National Cancer Institute has confirmed this do-it-yourself treatment’s ability to kill cancer cells. Want real-life proof? We’ve got tons. The testimonials from patients are positively awesome. You can see their faces and hear their voices yourself by clicking here.
A 54-year-old terminal cancer patient named Robert rejected chemotherapy, tried this approach, and totally got rid of his cancer in six months. Another patient named Arch was told he had only a 15% chance to live. He’s still alive three years later with (in his own words) “no evidence of cancer in repeated CAT scans.”
In a group of 180 cancer patients with 30 different kinds of cancer, 83 percent went into remission and were still cancer free 18 years later. Discover more — click here.
The offending chemical is called bisphenol A or BPA, and 93 percent of us have detectable levels in our bodies. Since the 1950s, BPA has been widely used in the production of plastics and resins. It’s found in a whole range of plastic products from eyeglasses to computers. But most of the concern is focused on the use of BPA in food containers. It’s found not only in metal cans but also in many plastic drinking containers including “sports bottles” and some baby bottles.
BPA mimics the female hormone estrogen. In fact, it was first developed in 1891 as a man-made estrogen. BPA messes with the natural balance in our hormones, and thereby puts us at greater risk of breast and prostate cancers. There’s also evidence it helps make us fat and increases our risk of diabetes.
Cancer Defeated published an article about this exactly a year ago (Issue #17), but this study does break new ground. There’s some good news: You can reduce your body’s levels of BPA fast by avoiding foods packaged in metal or plastic.
The study tracked five families while they ate their normal diet, then while they ate a healthy diet, and again when they returned to their normal diet. Each family had four members — two parents and two children under 11. Urine samples were collected from each family member throughout the study.
Each of these families was in the habit of eating meals prepared outside the home, including canned food, canned sodas, frozen dinners, and microwavable foods packaged in plastic.
After monitoring BPA levels during this “normal” diet, the researchers arranged for a caterer to bring fresh organic meals and snacks to the homes of these families for three days.
The results were dramatic. The amount of BPA excreted in the urine went down by way more than half — it was down an average of 60%, to be exact. And this took just three days of switching to a healthy diet. In some individuals, BPA levels went down 75%.
“One of the main sources of BPA is believed to be food packaging, but there weren’t any studies that had actually looked at having people eat a normal diet and then stop eating foods that had been wrapped in BPA-containing products,” said Janet Gray, Ph.D., director of the Program in Science, Technology and Society at Vassar College and a science advisor to the Breast Cancer Fund.
I think it’s remarkable that BPA levels went down so fast. It goes to show it DOES pay to change your habits. You can get results. And avoiding food packaged in cans or plastic seems like a fairly easy change to make.
How will you benefit from making this simple change? 465 studies conducted between 1993 and 2006 show BPA is linked to cancer. BPA can alter the behavior of more than 200 genes that control the growth and repair of your organs and tissue. It causes changes in breast and prostate cells, leads to errors in cell reproduction, spurs the formation of fat cells — and much, much more.
