How to Survive a Bout with Cancer

Thursday June 1st, 2017

A healthy diet and exercise could reduce colon cancer patients’ chance of death and simply walking could improve survival rates for breast cancer survivors, studies have found.

A study of nearly 1,000 colon cancer patients found that those who exercised regularly, ate more fruits and vegetables and avoided refined grains and meats had a 42% lower chance of death after seven years.

Similarly, a study of more than 300 Australian breast cancer survivors who aimed to exercise for 180 minutes per week – most by simply walking – had far better rates of survival than those who were not part of an exercise program.

“Most of what we know about the importance of exercise post-cancer comes from studying women with breast cancer,” said Sandra Hayes, an epidemiologist studying cancer and exercise at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.

Studies conducted on the relationship between exercise and other types of cancer, she said, held up a general set of findings. “Engaging in some activity [or] exercise is better than none, and doing more is generally better than less,” Hayes said.

Researchers acknowledged that studies on the effects of exercise and cancer recurrence remain epidemiological, and that causal links are yet to be established. Further, the mechanisms through which exercise may influence cancer survival remain “unclear.” But the message of the studies is clear. More plant-based food and less or no animal food is the best way to survive cancer.

Researchers found that even colon cancer survivors while following the American Cancer Society guidelines of healthy eating and exercise patterns had a 42% lower chance of dying than those that did not.

“I would recommend that patients build up to exercising for at least 150 minutes per week,” said the senior author of one study, Erin Van Blarigan, an epidemiologist at University of California, San Francisco. “Brisk walking is a great exercise for everyone. I would also recommend that patients aim to eat at least five servings of vegetables every day, not counting potatoes, and choose whole grains over refined grains.”

Van Blarigan said she was surprised by the strong correlation between healthy diet, exercise and lowered mortality.

In a smaller study, Hayes and colleagues in Australia randomly assigned more than 300 breast cancer survivors to groups that received exercise counseling or to a control group. All patients were six weeks out of surgery, and lived in both rural and urban settings. The exercise program lasted eight months. The goal was to exercise 180 minutes per week. Most of the participants, researchers said, chose simply to walk.

After a median follow-up of roughly eight years, researchers found 5.3% of the women who had received exercise counseling had died, versus 11.5% of those who had not received counseling. Similarly, 12.1% of women in the group that received exercise counseling had a recurrence of cancer, versus 17.7% of those who did not. The researchers said an exercise program after treatment “has clear potential to influence survival.”

“Walking, in all cases where it is possible, is the best remedy for diseased bodies, because in this exercise all the organs of the body are brought into use. Many who depend upon the movement cure could accomplish more for themselves by muscular exercise than the movements can do for them. In some cases, want of exercise causes the bowels and muscles to become enfeebled and shrunken, and these organs that have become enfeebled for want of use will be strengthened by exercise. There is no exercise that can take the place of walking. By it the circulation of the blood is greatly improved.” Counsels on Health, page 200.

What about Eating Just a Little Meat?

It has long been known that a plant-based diet may be protective against diabetes. Studies have shown over and over again that those who eat meat one or more days a week had significantly higher rates of diabetes, and the more frequently they ate meat, the more frequent the disease. And also those who ate plant-based food had only a fraction of the diabetes even though they lived a lot longer (and therefore had more time to develop diabetes) than those who ate meat.

Today, as the Adventist-2 health study’s 89,000 participants show, there is a step by step drop in rates of diabetes as one eats more and more plant-based food down to a 78% lower prevalence of the disease. The protection builds incrementally as one’s diet of daily meat eating migrates to eating meat weekly, to just fish, to no meat, and then to no eggs and dairy either. A plant-based diet has the potential to stem the current diabetes epidemic.

The same is true for high blood pressure and excess body fat. The greater the proportion of plant foods, the lower the rates of hypertension and excess body fat. In fact, the only group that was not overweight, on average, were those eating exclusively plant-based.

But what about eating a really healthy diet with just a little meat? A study of Asians in Taiwan compared Buddhist vegetarians to Buddhist non-vegetarians, eating traditional Asian food. Even the omnivores were eating predominately plant-based diet, with only a little meat and fish – 3-8% of their Western counterparts.

Those men who ate vegetarian had half the incidence of diabetes and the women only had a quarter of the rates of their meat-eating Buddhist compatriots. They wanted to break up their study to look at ovo-lacto and vegan participants like what was done in the Adventist-2 study, but they couldn’t because they had no incidence of diabetes among the vegan group.

The Adventist-2 study is important because it’s not only the biggest study of those eating plant-based diets in North America, but the largest such study anywhere anytime.

So, eat plants, not animals. You’ll have the longest life-span and the best quality of life.

“Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, prepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible, are the most healthful and nourishing. They impart a strength, a power of endurance, and a vigor of intellect that are not afforded by a more complex and stimulating diet.” Ministry of Healing, page 296

Researchers are now saying the link between excessive Internet use and mental health has been underestimated.

The more time you spend on the internet and social media, the more likely you are to suffer from mental health issues, according to researchers at McMaster University.

The link between internet addiction and mental health issues is stronger than previously thought, researchers say, as more and more people are unable to cope with everyday life without having an online fix.

The study surveyed 254 students at the university in Hamilton using the Internet Addiction Test (IAT), which was created in 1998, as well as a newer scale of the researcher’s own design.

Those who screened positive on the IAT as well as on the researcher’s scale had more trouble dealing with their day-to-day activities including life at home, work, school and social settings, says chief researcher Michael Van Ameringen at McMaster University to Science Daily.

Of those surveyed, 33 of them met the criteria for internet addiction and 107 for problematic internet use.

“Internet use has changed radically over the last 18 years, through more people working online, media streaming, social media, etc.,” says Michael Van Ameringen, professor of psychiatry and behavioural neuroscience at McMaster, to The Mirror. “We were concerned that the IAT questionnaire may not have been picking up on problematic modern internet use, or showing up false positives for people who were simply using the internet rather than being over-reliant on it.”

The study also found that 56 per cent of university students had a difficult time controlling their use of video streaming websites, 48 per cent couldn’t control their use of social media and 29 per cent had trouble staying away from instant messaging.

As well, 42 per cent were facing mental health problems as a result of their over-use of the internet.

These findings, Van Ameringen says, could help medical professionals and how they approach patients with internet dependency.

“If you are trying to treat someone for an addiction when in fact they are anxious or depressed, then you may be going down the wrong route,” he says. “We need to understand this more, so we need a bigger sample, drawn from a wider, more varied population.”

Internet addiction has not been formally recognized by the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-5 as a diagnosable condition, citing more research is needed.

Jesus wants to know you he wants a relationship with you take the time to read and study God’s word and he will give peace. God wants you to be temperate in all things.

“AND EVERY MAN THAT STRIVETH FOR THE MASTERY IS TEMPERATE IN ALL THINGS.”(1 Corinthians 9:25)

Image result for Condoms

 

Wednesday August 24th, 2016 

Liberals champion distribution of free condoms in high schools to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease. But distribution of free condoms seems to be related to a significant increase in these things. Though liberals tried to explain away these findings from a recent study, the facts remain.

Liberals will now argue that the problem is not with the distribution of condoms. It’s that we didn’t offer enough sex education with them. But this has not borne out either. Jonathan Zimmerman noted in his 2015 work, “Too Hot to Handle: A Global History of Sex Education,” there’s “scant evidence” that sex education “affects teen pregnancy or venereal disease rates.”

Other liberal morals are also in question. Nobel Laureate George Akerlof and current Fed chair Janet Yellen wrote a paper in 1996. They wrote, “Although many observers expected liberalized abortion and contraception to lead to fewer out-of-wedlock births, the opposite happened.”

Why not just follow the principles of God’s law? Liberals do not want to acknowledge that God’s way is the best way and will go to any lengths to do away with it.

“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry…” Colossians 3:5.

“God will cleanse the earth from it moral corruption, not by a sea of water as in Noah’s day, but by a sea of fire that cannot be quenched by any human devising.” Christ’s Object Lessons, page 179.

It isn’t easy being anxious. You can’t sleep, you can’t concentrate, you’re tired and cranky. The good news: Curbing your anxiety may be easier than you think — perhaps as easy as saying “thank you.”

Anxiety tends to turn people inward, make them more introspective and therefore less socially engaged. Previously, scientists have shown that people who are more self-focused do in fact experience greater levels of anxiety.

Two psychologists at the University of British Columbia recently decided to test whether acts of kindness, already shown by researchers to increase a person’s happiness, might also help alleviate social anxiety.

In a study published in the journal Motivation and Emotion, Jennifer Trew and Lynn Alden described their study of 115 socially anxious college students. The two researchers divided their subjects into three groups. The first group was asked to engage in three acts of kindness a day, two days a week, over a period of four weeks. Examples of acts of kindness by the participants included washing a roommate’s dishes, mowing a neighbor’s lawn and donating to charity.

The second group was asked to insert themselves into, or expose themselves to, social situations, also over a four-week span. These situations included asking a stranger for the time, talking with a neighbor, and asking another person to lunch. Subjects were also instructed to do deep-breathing exercises beforehand to make their tasks easier to perform.

The third group, the control, was asked merely to keep a diary of personal events.

The results: The first group, who engaged in acts of kindness, “experienced a greater overall reduction in avoidance goals.” That is, they experienced fewer instances of avoiding social situations because of their fear of rejection or conflict.

Trew and Alden concluded that “acts of kindness may help to strengthen social relationships, increase social engagement, and broaden social networks.”

“We found that any kind act appeared to have the same benefit, even small gestures like opening a door for someone or saying ‘thanks’ to the bus driver,” Alden said in a statement.

Being outwardly directed and engaging in acts of kindness have also been linked to optimism. In another recent study, scientists linked gray matter volume in the left orbitofrontal cortex, the area right behind your left eye, to increased optimism and decreased anxiety. The more gray matter, the more optimistic the person. The more optimistic, the less anxious. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/04/07/the-surprisingly-easy-way-to-reduce-your-anxiety-thank-you-very-much/

 

 

The scientists have just found out the truth of these inspired statements. The medicine for the troubled mind!!!
“The consciousness of right-doing is one of the best medicines for diseased bodies and minds. When the mind is free and happy from a sense of duty well done and the satisfaction of giving happiness to others, the cheering, uplifting influence brings new life to the whole being.”–Ministry of Healing, p. 257

 


It takes 10 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of hard cheese.

It takes 12 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of ice cream.

It takes 11 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of non-fat dry milk.

It takes 7.4 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of dry whole milk.i

Humans have made the cow a modern factory—a perpetual milk machine. Three thousand years ago, a cow gave approximately 200 pounds of milk in a year. Today, the modern cow gives more than 15,000 pounds of milk, 75 times as much. And this over-production is causing more diseases in cows (as well as humans). In fact, 89% of cows today have the bovine leukemia virus.

God never intended for a cow to this much milk. Milk is a very delicate substance, related to almost every gland and organ of the cow’s body. It was meant as a normal function of the animal in creating life. All of the best elements in its body must be assembled to make milk, so that the calf can have a good start.

Today, we drink unnatural milk. It is produced from a cow unnaturally begotten by selective breeding, by cross-breeding, or by artificial insemination. The milk is taken from diseased cows, from bloated milk bags, or from heavy, chemicalized feedings often loaded with antibiotics and hormones.

If you believe that you are getting antibiotics only when they are prescribed by your doctor, consider this: about half of the nation’s entire antibiotic output, or over $70 million worth yearly, goes directly into feed stuff for animals intended for human consumption, to make them gain weight faster and to keep them (supposedly) disease free.

Every sip of milk has 59 different powerful hormones. Do you want your family to consume, estrogen, progesterone, or prolactin?

The Word of God says I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. Deuteronomy 30:19

Other Strange Additives

The dairy industry adds animal products to every carton of milk (in the form of vitamin D3) and may soon be adding processed raw fish organs. Dairy processors are about to get approval to add fish oil to cheese, yogurt, milk, and ice cream.

Cow’s milk also contains the following:

59 Active Hormones

  • Allergens
  • Fat
  • Cholesterol

Most of the dairy products we buy have the following in measurable quantities:

  • Herbicides
  • Pesticides
  • Dioxin (up to 2200 times the safe level)
  • Up to 52 powerful antibiotics
  • Blood
  • Pus
  • Bacteria and viruses
