Garlic – Causes More Than Bad Breath!

Keeping with Halloween superstitions, many of us might have hung a few bulbs of garlic near our thresholds last night to ward off blood-thirsty vampires and other evil spirits. However, scientists now believe that garlic may be beneficial in warding off evil carcinogens in our foods.

 

Recent findings by the American Association for Cancer Research show that while this most offensive herb may damage our luck with the opposite sex; it may actually stop the production of PhIP, a suspected carcinogen produced by protein-rich foods – such as meat and eggs – when cooked at high temperatures. In the past, evidence has shown that breast cancer occurrence is higher among women who consume high quantities of meat in their diets. Although, diets high in bad fats and empty calories have also been blamed for increasing a woman's risk of breast cancer.

Speaking of natural food substances that can support our health, I happened across this website on natural supplements for cancer, including breast cancer and a long list of other serious ailments such as cardiovascular diseases, alzheimer's disease, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, arthritis, neurological diseases and others. The supplements were formulated over the past decade by a team of medical professionals who were disillusioned with the failings of western medicine in treating and curing disease. They turned to Eastern modalities and found answers there. The result is a line of all-natural evidence -based formulas that are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties - inflammation at the cellular level is cited as the cause of most diseases. Fermented soy and curcumin are the two main ingredients used in these formulas and they have both had positive indications in cancer research trials. In one trial curcumin not only repelled progression of lung cancer, but also broke down the dose of a common chemotherapy drug, making it less toxic to the body but the drug stayed just as powerful in treating the cancer. There are numerous clinical trials, including testimonials of people who experienced reversal of symptoms on this website that may be of interest if you're looking for natural http://www.jivasupplements.org/breastcancerproducts.htmlbreast cancer products Wondering if anyone has has seen this website?
