How we all are eating Cancer Causing Foods daily?

 

We all know that carcinogens are all around us, which is why for the most part, we now avoid chemicals, smoking, radio waves and even certain household detergents! But did you know that there are a huge amount of foods out there which are known to be carcinogenic…some of which you probably eat every day! Here’s 12 Cancer Causing Foods you may want to avoid from now on!

Refined Sugars spikes your body’s insulin


Refined sugar is typically made from genetically modified sugar beets and consuming it spikes your body’s insulin levels which can in turn feed cancer cells.

Soda Pop has Fructose


Fructose, the type of sugar found in soda, is a serious carcinogen, as is the brown coloring found in some cola’s. Soda also acidifies the body, which in turn causes cancer cells to multiply.

French Fries/Chips has Trans fats


These tasty staples are fried in Hydrogenated oils, like vegetable oil, which contains trans fats. Trans fats are a known carcinogen and recent studies have found that there is actually no “safe” amount of trans fats consumable. They are also very high in salt which increases the risk of high blood pressure. Potatoes are also one of the foods known to absorb the chemicals which are used to fertilize the soil, some of which is also know to be a carcinogen.

Processed Meats contain sodium nitrite


Meats such as bacon, sausages and in particular hot dog sausages have been proven to increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67% and in addition to this hot dogs commonly contain sodium nitrite, a cancer risk so well known that the USDA have been trying to ban it since the early 1970’s

Red Meat Has Neu5Gc, a sugar molecule


Some red meat contains Neu5Gc, a sugar molecule which attaches itself to your cells when you consume it. Your body then attacks it and increases the risk of causing a cancer. However, organic beef contains conjugated linoleic acid which actually helps your body to fight cancer cells..so all is not lost!

Microwave popcorn has PFOA


Most microwave popcorn bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid ( PFOA). This is a toxin which can also be found in Teflon. Exposure to PFOA significantly increases the risk of kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas and testicular cancers
Motorcycles are fuuunnnnn!!!

White Bread and Pasta has chemical


Refined flour is typically bleached to achieve it’s pure whiteness and can be found in found in some white breads and pasta. The food retains some of the chemical which is then ingested, and upsets our body’s natural blood sugar balance, increasing insulin production and encouraging the growth of cancer cells.

Canned Tomatoes has or BPA


The lining of almost all canned foods are made with a chemical called bisphenol-A, or BPA which can contaminated the contained foods. BPA has been found to effect the way genes work which in turn can cause cancer growth. Even the FDA agree that there is a problem with the use of BPA. Tomatoes and their acidic properties are at greater risk of contamination from

Alcohol


Alcohol is the second largest cause of cancer after smoking! Excessive alcohol use is the main cause of mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, mouth, rectum, and female breast cancers.

Without surgery or medicine- How to LOOK young all the time

How to Look and Feel Younger Than Ever

There is nothing that ages an individual more quickly than illness, pain and stiffness, or chronic stress. Therefore, much of what we do to take care of ourselves on a daily basis will also help us keep a youthful appearance.  Here is a rundown of the many things you can do that won’t cost (or hurt) too much, but will make you feel vibrant and strong.  Let’s be proactive in our approach to aging and grow into our later years gracefully and beautifully!

 Without surgery or medicine- How to LOOK young all the time

Protect Your Skin from the Sun


 Nothing ages the skin faster than sun overexposure. Collagen, the structural protein of our skin, breaks down in response to UV radiation.  The sun also increases the production of free radicals, which damage cells and break down collagen as well. Although sunscreen offers some protection, many people apply too little of it—and not nearly frequently enough.

 Aside from being a fashion accessory, sunglasses will protect the health of your eyes and will help prevent the wrinkles that accompany squinting at the sun. Purchase sunglasses that provide 99-100% UV protection for both UVA & UVB rays. And protect your skin from exposure by wearing a wide-brimmed hat, longer sleeves and other sun-shielding apparel.


What You Are What You Eat


 Much has been written about the power of nutrition to ward off illness, boost the immune system and enhance your complexion.  Real food is more beneficial to your body and skin than supplements are, and eating a wide variety of super foods increases your chances of absorbing the most nutrients possible.

 If maintaining healthy skin is your concern, foods containing vitamins A, C, and E, and polyphenols (antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties that protect and benefit the skin) should be part of your daily diet.  Here are some examples of deliciously colorful foods that provide these key nutrients:
 Without surgery or medicine- How to LOOK young all the time

• Vitamin A: Sweet potatoes, broccoli, leafy greens (such as spinach and kale), red, yellow and orange produce (such as cantaloupe, carrots, bell peppers), and asparagus

• Vitamin C: Red bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, pineapple, kiwifruit, oranges, and cantaloupe

• Vitamin E: Nuts and seeds, vegetable oils, tomato products, and spinach.

• Polyphenols: Green tea, cocoa and dark chocolate.


Exercise formula all the time


There are three types of exercise that can keep you looking and feeling young.

• Aerobic exercise increases circulation throughout the body and strengthens the heart and lungs.  It aids in digestion, helps us reduce anxiety and stress, and enhances the quality of our sleep. Weight-bearing aerobic exercise, such as walking, jogging, hiking or dancing, can even slow bone loss.

  • Strength training has been shown to build bone mass, which helps to prevent and slow down osteoporosis.  Building muscle mass keeps us strong and revs the metabolism, which helps to maintain a healthy body weight and youthful figure.  Strength training keeps us limber and improves balance, preventing debilitating falls and fractures. Ultimately, it keeps you independent and capable of more things even as you get older.

  • Lifestyle activities, such as golf, gardening, bowling, tennis and ballroom dancing involve both physical and mental stimulation, keeping both our bodies and minds young. In general, experts agree that the more you can move--even if it's not as intense as traditional forms of exercise--the better off your body and your mind will be as you age.


Adjust Your Mindset all the time


Research has found that the most serious aging occurs at the cellular level.  Many of our lifestyle habits such as exercise, nutrition, stress management and sleep will enhance the body’s ability to repair the cellular damage that is inevitable as we get older.   Traditional medicine focuses on treating illness to prolong life. But many healthcare professionals want to shift that focus to preventing disease in the first place.  We want to not only add years to our life, but life to our years.  Disease occurs when we fail to keep our bodies and minds active; it is not an unavoidable result of getting older. Arthritis, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease and even dementia often occur because of the accumulation of unhealthy lifestyle habits rather than as a result of years ticking by.

 Much of what you decide to do on a daily basis will not only prolong the length of your life, but the quality of those years as well.


Get your good Sleep everyday


 Experience a night of insomnia or stay up into the wee hours for any reason, and you’ll probably notice signs of sleep deprivation in the mirror the next day.  Bags under the eyes and pallor to your skin can definitely make you look old and tired.  Repeat this night after night, and the chronic sleep deprivation will age your body from the inside out.  Most of us don’t get enough sleep, and that plays a significant role in our appearances.  Individuals who get less than 6 hours of sleep a night may be at an increased risk for viral infections, heart disease, obesity and stroke, with an associated decline in mental functioning to boot.  If your lack of sleep is due to your desire to get more done each day, think about the time you waste due to fatigue interfering with your efficiency.  Adjust your attitude and your habits, and begin working to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night.


 Without surgery or medicine- How to LOOK young all the time

Deep Breathing, Meditation and Yoga


Chronic unmanageable stress wreaks havoc on our bodies and makes us feel old before our time.  It’s been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and skin inflammation.  Stress has also been shown to suppress our immune system, making us more prone to illness and disease.  Anything you do to manage and alleviate stress will have a positive impact on how you look and feel as you age. Setting aside a few minutes each day to be quiet, center yourself, and let your worries drift away is smart medicine. Make deep breathing exercises or meditation a part of your routine.  Yoga has the added benefit of not only calming the mind, but also keeping the body flexible and strong.


Take Care of Your Smile.


 Most people don't take the time to connect the two, but the health of your mouth can also affect the health of your body.  Individuals with gum disease are more prone to heart disease and lung problems.  For people with diabetes, treatment of gum problems can also help control blood sugar levels. And nothing can make you look older than yellow, stained or missing teeth


Don't Neglect Your Ears


 Our ears contain tiny hairs that vibrate in response to noise. This then excites the auditory nerve, allowing us to hear and interpret sounds.  However, too much vibration due to excess exposure to very loud noises frays those hairs, and could lead to hearing loss over time.

 By all means, enjoy listening to music--but turn down the volume. You should still be able to hear outside noises above the music in your ears.  Wireless headphones have saved my marriage, since my husband loves to stay up way later than I do watching movies.  But if I try to talk to him and he can’t hear me, I know they are too loud.  If you work in an environment that exposes you to constant loud noise, or you love a good rock concert, consider using earplugs or sound-reducing headphones to muffle the sound.  Nothing will make you feel old faster than not hearing the conversation around you!


Stop Smoking and Limit Alcohol.


 Smoking can accelerate the aging process and shorten your lifespan (and quality of life) considerably.  Decreased lung capacity, emphysema, and heart disease are all associated with smoking, not to mention the detrimental effect it has on your looks.  Smoking correlates to wrinkles around the lips, yellowing of the teeth, and aging skin.  If you want to look younger, feel younger and live longer, give up smoking!

If you have the space to sit on the floor, try this torso twist stretch. It’s guaranteed to make you feel better!

 

9. Be grateful


Write down five things you’re grateful for, no matter how large or small (your hair, your family, and your morning cup of Joe— whatever). Do you feel more thankful, generous and overall happier after? Funny how a little reminder of what we have can turn a frown into a smile.

Spare a Minute of every hour for improving your Health and feel happy


This is my second part of blog on, How to improve your fitness in a MINUTE in 2012. In this blog you will see that how in a minute you can do so many exercises which will not only give good health but also happiness.

There is no excuse:

I have no time for exercise

I am busy

I have lot of work to do

I have to eat

Let see see some more tips what you can do in a minute…

11. You can do 10 pushups.


Being strong is important, but having functional strength is even more important because it makes everyday activities easier to accomplish. A push-up is a great, quick exercise for building functional strength. Drop down and give me 10—or as many as you can do in 1 minute.

 

12. Encourage someone.


Isn’t it interesting how you always seem to feel better after helping someone else feel better? Whether you post a supportive comment on a blog or write a few kind words in a card or an email, taking a minute out to help someone can quickly boost your mood.

 

13. Write a goal for the day


Fact: People who set goals have more success than people who don’t. So why not take a few seconds and write down what you want to do today? Then, just commit to making it happen!

  Simple TRICKs to improve your health and happiness in 60 seconds


14. Focus on one thing you love about yourself.


At times, we put so much effort in focusing on what we don’t like about ourselves that we fail to see the good. Take one minute to think about what you like about you. Is it your eyes? Your strong legs? Your giving nature? Thinking about how great you are will instantly increase self-confidence.

 

15. Wash your hands.


It seems like cold and flu season is always in full force (or just around the corner).  One of the simplest and easiest ways to stay well year round is to wash your hands. All you need is warm water, soap and 20 seconds of rubbing to rid your hands of unwanted germs.

 

16. Compliment a stranger.


What better way to make yourself feel good than to unexpectedly brighten someone else’s day? The next time you admire someone’s clothes, positive attitude or eyes—say so!

 

17. Try aromatherapy.


 A number of different smells can have a positive effect on your mind and body. For example, peppermint is known to calm the stomach while its smell can energize you through a workout. And the scent of jasmine has been shown to reduce anxiety. To benefit, grab some scented lotion and either take a whiff from the bottle or rub some on your hands.

 

18. Salute the sun.


Sun salutations are a well-known set of yoga poses that are said to warm up the body and increase blood flow and flexibility. So grab your mat and do one or two sets—rain or shine!

 

19. Give yourself a mini-massage.


Massage has a number of health benefits, including reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and speeding muscle repair. While you may not be able to spend the time or money getting one at a spa, pampering yourself with just 1 minute of self-massage by rubbing your own hands, feet or shoulders can do wonders.

 

20. Be absolutely present.


When we are wrapped up with work, to-do lists, and just getting by, sometimes we can forget to focus on what we are doing in the here and now. Try spending a minute just being. Focus on sounds, smells and whatever else is going on around you; instead of thinking ahead to what you'll do next, think about what you're doing right now. You’ll be amazed at how peaceful you feel. Just be!

Healthy trick to make your brain smart all the time

How to make your brain smart all the time

This is very nice study which give us idea that what we eat not only good for our body but also for our brain power. This research study following nearly 28,000 people aged 55 and older at high cardiovascular risk, which monitored their diets for 5 years and tested declines


 Healthy trick to make your brain smart all the time
against thinking and memory tests, found a smaller drop in brain power for those who ate well. The American Academy of Neurology has published the results in the journal Neurology. The healthy eating linked to the stronger cognitive health was a diet with not much red meat, moderate alcohol and lots of fruits and vegetable, nuts and fish.

The 27,860 over-55s included for the analysis, from across 40 countries, were studied over an average of around 5 years. Certain health conditions were excluded at the start of the study of people at high risk of cardiovascular disease. None of the participants had diabetes or a history of heart disease, stroke or peripheral artery disease; nor had any recently experienced serious disease outcomes such as a stroke or congestive heart failure. Participants who experienced heart disease or stroke during the study were no longer followed for diet and mental power.  To take a baseline measure of cognitive health and monitor any decline, thinking and memory skills were tested at the start of the study, then 2 years and about 5 years later. A maximum of 30 points was possible against these thinking and memory tests and cognitive decline was noted when scores dropped by 3 points or more, which happened for 17% overall - a total of 4,699 participants.

Interesting Results-Cognitive decline lowest among those who reported healthiest diets


The proportion registering a decline was lower for people reporting the healthiest diets - 14% of these showed a drop in thinking and memory, compared with 18% of the people eating the least healthy diets. For the measure of diet, the participants were asked at the start of the study to say how often they ate certain foods, including vegetables, nuts and soy proteins, whole grains and deep-fried foods. They also reported levels of alcohol intake and gave data to produce a ratio of fish to meat and eggs in their diets. The measure of diet quality was a modified version of the healthy eating index used by the US government. Among the 5,687 people with the healthiest diet, 782 made up the 13.8% having cognitive decline, while of the 5,459 people with the least healthy diets, 987 accounted for the 18.1%. The relative difference from these figures produces a 24% lower likelihood of a drop in thinking and memory for people eating well. The researchers accounted for factors that could have affected the results, such as physical activity, high blood pressure and history of cancer. Study author Dr. Andrew Smyth, of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and the National University of Ireland in Galway, says diet in later life is only part of the picture, Adoption of a healthy diet probably begins early in life, and a healthy diet might also go along with adoption of other healthy behaviors. For their data, the authors examined participants from randomized drug trials in cardiovascular disease supported by pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim.

In background to their work, the authors cite previous brain health links to healthy diet but point out that using the large multinational prospective cohort study allows observation of "more precise associations between diet (assessed using standardized methodology) and cognitive outcomes." Explaining what biological explanations may lie behind the emerging evidence, the authors say: "Dietary intake may modify the risk of cognitive decline through multiple mechanisms, including increased risk of stroke (both overt and covert) and through deficiency of nutrients required for neuronal regeneration (for example, group B vitamins, and vitamin C)." The risk factors for dementia listed by the US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke include a number that can be modified by dietary and lifestyle measures. The new study ends by stating, “In conclusion, we report that higher diet quality is associated with a reduced risk of cognitive decline. Improved diet quality represents an important potential target for reducing the global burden of cognitive decline."
