Hello Real Health Hope Blog Readers:

Below is an email I got today from the folks who work hard to give us important food supplements for our anti-cancer lifestyles.   Beta Glucan, as I discuss in my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life, is a mainstay in my protocol as well as long time cancer coach, Bill Henderson, among others.   The research is outstanding regarding the positive impact of Beta Glucan on boosting a healthy immune system.  Here's the email from Betterway Health.

"To all of our affiliates,

It's always very exciting for me to share new research with all of those who support our cause.

I am so incredibly grateful for all of your support; we know that without you, our company would not exist. 

Here is a brand new study that we just received from Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka, Head of Pathology at the University of Louisville. 

In this new study, Dr. Vetvicka tested many leading Immune System Supplements for:

1. Phagocytosis
2. Interleukin 2
3. Antibody Formation
4. Superoxide Production
5. Interferon gamma secretion
6. Tumor Growth

*We are ecstatic to report that our product, Glucan #300, once again outperformed every product in every test conducted.

With over 7,000 peer-reviewed publications on the immunological effects of glucan; rest assured, you are promoting a product truly backed by scientific research.

As you can see in this study, there are several companies out there using clever marketing gimmicks to push their products; sadly, many of them do absolutely nothing for your immune system. 

Like us, I know that you pride yourself on giving your customers indisputable scientific evidence as to why the products that you recommend are truly the best. 

You can check out our article with links to the new study here:
http://www.betterwayhealth.com/blog/best-beta-glucan-study-2014/

*Please share this information with anyone you believe would be interested."

As far as I know Betterway Health offers this supplement at the best price.

I want to share with you a re-post from Shane Ellison, "The People's Chemist".   Families drinking commercial sports drinks are ingesting enormous amounts of high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar which are very damaging to health.  I personally take "Daily Dose" as well as "Cinnergy" which are products from Ellison's company but I have not ever met nor do I get any favors from this company.   I just like the products because they have no man-made chemicals and are manufactured in the purest possible way.    This recipe is a healthy alternative to expensive and non-nutritious sports drinks.   "Daily Dose can be ordered from www.thepeopleschemist.com.


This recipe makes a fantastic tasty and healthy "sports drink".  I've enjoyed it tremendously.  

The better a family’s choices, the healthier the kids. Sadly, the US is making all the wrong choices. According to a UNICEF report — “Child Well-Being in Rich Countries” — the USA ranked 26th of 29 countries. Along with asthma and Type II diabetes, we’re the most overweight. And that’s parlaying into more cancer. Today, childhood cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death among children and adolescents (ages 1 to 19 years).
To win the war on cancer, you need to know the cause…There are too many to mention here. In my book, Over-The-Counter Natural Cures, I trawled the library to discover today’s top cancer threats. Cleaning supplies, synthetic vitamins, artificial flavors, tap water and the profit driven vaccine schedule are among the biggest threats.
In addition to avoiding these overt cancer-causing compounds, I protect my kids with my all-natural, multi-vitamin known as “Daily Dose.” Daily Dose is a different kind of multi-vitamin…Unlike the store bought varieties loaded with preservatives, fillers and synthetic vitamins, Daily Dose contains the most beneficial, naturally occurring nutrients required to fight off cancer, as well as increase a child’s energy, vitality, immunity, and longevity.
One of it’s active ingredients, curcumin, even enhances learning, memory and mood. It’s not surprising that in a recent survey, curcumin was the top pick among doctors as the best supplement for overall health.
Since swallowing pills is a kids worst nightmare, I make taking Daily Dose fun.
Using my ultra-secret recipe, I dose them using “Power-C.” The formula is simple, yet tastier than any crap your kid might squeeze from a bag or chug from a can. My son Blair has been asking for it by name for 5 years.
Recipe (see image above) is as follows:
  • 1 gallon purified water or sparkling water
  • 3 capsules of Daily Dose
  • 1-3 cups of organic lemon juice
  • 1 whole organic orange
  • stevia
Open capsules and dump into water. Add lemon juice and stevia to match your personal preference for taste. Squeeze whole orange into Power-C. Stir, chill, serve with excitement!
Kids should be growing, not wilting. Yet, 1 in 3 children born in 2000 or later will suffer from diabetes. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) predicted that this scourge will erase 11 to 20 years from their lifespan. That’s a childhood lost, and an adulthood. And for what? Bad decisions. Start using Daily Dose and learn more by reading Over-The-Counter Natural Cures.

Processed Meats Too Dangerous for Human Consumption per World Cancer Research Fund





"Spherestrats"  acrylic on watercolor paper by Jacquie Woodward.
I haven't posted for a little while on this blog but hope you have also been visiting my website, www.slamthedooroncancer.com where you can now download a pdf of my book, Slam the Door on Cancer -- and lock it out of your life, for only $5.   The paperback version is also available on the "shop" page of the website and comes with a Free CD of a recent Real Health Hope Seminar.
HOWEVER, the following re-post of an updated article is posted below and I believe it contains absolutely critical anti-cancer information.
UPDATED – 5/22/2013 – The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer.1 Bottom line: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives.
Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and virtually all red meat used in frozen prepared meals. They are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic ingredient known as sodium nitrite.2 This is used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats a bright red color so they look fresh. Unfortunately, sodium nitrite also results in the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines in the human body. And this leads to a sharp increase in cancer risk for those who eat them.
A 2005 University of Hawaii study found that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67 percent.3 Another study revealed that every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 21 percent.4 These are alarming numbers. Note that these cancer risks do not come from eating fresh, non-processed meats. They only appear in people who regularly consume processed meat products containing sodium nitrite.
Sodium nitrite appears predominantly in red meat products (you won’t find it in chicken or fish products). Here’s a short list of food items to check carefully for sodium nitrite and monosodium glutamate (MSG), another dangerous additive:
  • Beef jerky
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Hot dogs
  • Sandwich meat
  • Frozen pizza with meat
  • Canned soups with meat
  • Frozen meals with meat
  • Ravioli and meat pasta foods
  • Kid’s meals containing red meat
  • Sandwich meat used at popular restaurants
  • Nearly all red meats sold at public schools, restaurants, hospitals, hotels and theme parks
If sodium nitrite is so dangerous to humans, why do the FDA and USDA continue to allow this cancer-causing chemical to be used? The answer, of course, is that food industry interests now dominate the actions by U.S. government regulators. The USDA, for example, tried to ban sodium nitrite in the late 1970′s but was overridden by the meat industry.5 It insisted the chemical was safe and accused the USDA of trying to “ban bacon.”
Today, the corporations that dominate American food and agricultural interests hold tremendous influence over the FDA and USDA. Consumers are offered no real protection from dangerous chemicals intentionally added to foods, medicines and personal care products.
You can protect yourself and your family from the dangers of processed meats by following a few simple rules:
  1. Always read ingredient labels.
  2. Don’t buy anything made with sodium nitrite or monosodium glutamate.
  3. Don’t eat processed meats served by restaurants, schools, hospitals, hotels or other institutions.
And finally, eat more fresh produce with every meal. There is evidence that natural vitamin C found in citrus fruits and exotic berries (like camu camu) helps prevent the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines, protecting you from the devastating health effects of sodium nitrite in processed meats. The best defense, of course, is to avoid eating processed meats altogether.
****** UPDATE 5/22/2013 *******
The World Cancer Research Fund caught wind of our article. Thanks to everyone who has been spreading the word! As they put it, they were “in no way involved in the production of the article.” And they weren’t. We read their review and drew the only logical, possible conclusion. Their official response… “The articles talking about processed meat being ‘too dangerous for human consumption’ are unhelpful and scaremongering.” Yet in the very same online post, they tell you to avoid processed meat because it can cause bowel cancer! We’re sorry. But if a food is directly linked to 4,000 cases of bowel cancer in the UK alone (according to their stats), it is indeed “too dangerous for human consumption.”
And yet another detailed study in BMC Medicine from just this past March confirms it.6 Processed meats increase your risk of early death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. We don’t call it scaremongering. We call it the truth.
