Lung Cancer Research

Posted in Health News at 8:40 pm by Administrator

Exhaled breath biomarker may detect lung cancer. Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic have discovered that it may be possible to detect lung cancer by assaying the chemical composition of exhaled breath. The researchers used a chemical detection technique to compare the chemical composition of 82 confirmed lung cancer patients breath with 155 patients who are at risk for lung cancer but free of the disease. They found that their chemical detection technique of exhaled breath accurately identified those patients with lung cancer. This could be a huge breakthrough in the diagnosis of lung cancer. So if this lung cancer detecting machine can identify lung cancer before an x-ray can, then many lives could be saved.

Benefits of Eating Unsaturated Fats

Posted in Nutrition at 9:15 pm by Administrator

Eating unsaturated fats instead of saturated fats or carbohydrates:

  • lowers levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the bad cholesterol, without also lowering levels of HDL (good) cholesterol
  • prevents the increase in triglycerides that occurs with high-carbohydrate diets
  • reduces the development of erratic heartbeats, a main cause of sudden cardiac death
  • reduces the tendency for blood-flow-blocking clots to form in arteries.

Helpful suggestions for all of us…

Posted in Human Development at 10:00 pm by Administrator

  1. So why is a car’s windshield so large and the rear view mirror so small? Because our past is not as important as our future. So, look ahead and move on.
  2. Friendship is like a book. It takes a few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.
  3. All things in life are temporary. If it’s going well, enjoy it, that won’t last long. If it’s going badly, don’t worry, that won’t last long either.
  4. Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace.

A Clear Perspective

Posted in Nutrition at 9:47 pm by Administrator

“Natural, unprocessed grains such as brown rice, millet, barley, quinoa, and whole wheat berries are rich in complex carbohydrates, which are slowly absorbed and do not create spikes in insulin levels. The same is true for other plant sources of carbohydrates, such as squash, turnips, broccoli, and other pulpy vegetables. Not only are the carbs in these foods slowly absorbed, but these foods are essentially low in calories. A pound of brown rice –far more than you could eat in a single meal, or even in a single day– has less than 500 calories. A pound of broccoli, again more than you could eat at a single setting, has about 85 calories.” (p. 38)

High levels of homocysteine?

Posted in Nutrition at 6:00 am by Administrator

“A high level of homocysteine in the blood is an independent risk factor for arterial disease and heart attack and may also elevate the risk of cancer and a number of chronic degenerative diseases. The body can easily clear homocysteine from the blood if it has adequate amounts of vitamins B6, B12, and especially folic acid. You should be taking in about 800 micrograms of folic acid a day; if you get 400 micrograms from a B-complex supplement, the rest will come from a normal diet.” (p.127)
