Cancer Awareness down Prevention up|Dairy & Cancer

cancer awareness

Does cancer awareness equal progression towards eliminating cancer?

The topic of cancer awareness can be a touchy subject especially when cancer has affected so many of our lives in this modern era.   I would believe that all parties involved  would love to see a resolution and end to cancer starting today.  I would like to believe that every agency of non for profit were all in on whatever it takes to rid the world of cancer.  My beliefs may be a little naive as well as hopeful that people are still not agents for greed and chaos.  I know that all organizations that claim to fight or want the best are not always truthful and have a tendency to omit or dance around hard cold evidence that may be key in significantly decreasing cancer worldwide.

This video from Dr.Gregor and the great people at Nutritionfacts.org highlights how the dairy industry does not take cancer awareness seriously but actually perpetuates cancer growth.  Please like, share, and comment and help to actually fight cancer.  Please look into my other dynamic articles as well right here on straightofficial.com and more content on Facebook.

Studies show contrast in cancer rates by country and correlation with dairy consumption.

“Studies comparing country-by-country cancer rates “have shown up to a 70-fold variation in the incidence of prostate cancer worldwide with low rates in parts of Asia and Africa and high rates in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Northern Europe.” Here’s the map of prostate cancer mortality. Could dairy consumption have something to do with it, given Northern Europeans, Americans, and Australians drink a lot of milk, whereas most non-Caucasians in the world are lactose intolerant? But just because a country drinks a lot of milk and has a lot of cancer doesn’t mean the individuals within the country that are drinking the milk are getting the cancer. That’s why we need “cohort studies,” where you find out how much milk people drink, and follow those individuals over time, and see if those who drink more milk get more cancer.

How does evidence show that cancer awareness is not enough?

There have been dozens of such studies done. Put them all together, and “[i]ntakes of total dairy products [including low-fat milk] were [indeed] associated with increased [prostate cancer] risk.” The question is…why? Maybe it’s just all the calcium. They found that the more calcium people consumed, the higher their risk of prostate cancer. Yeah, but most people get their calcium from dairy.

So, how do we know this isn’t just a dairy effect? Before we start worrying about kale and other non-dairy sources of calcium, it would be nice to see dairy calcium teased out from non-dairy calcium intakes. And that’s exactly what they did. Yes, the more calcium from dairy sources, the higher the risk of cancer, but non-dairy sources of calcium were found to be protective. So, it wasn’t a calcium effect; it was a dairy effect. This suggests that “other components of dairy” may be to blame.

They suggest it’s the animal protein, boosting the levels of a cancer-promoting growth hormone called IGF-1: insulin-like growth factor 1. If you look at 28 studies involving nearly 28,000 people—this is what’s called an albatross plot. Any study to the right of this line shows a link between IGF-1 levels and dairy products, milk specifically, or dairy protein consumption. And, any study hitting this line or over shows a significant association with higher IGF-1 levels.

Should cancer awareness be geared more towards lifestyle change?

This could also explain why plant-based diets can be so protective. Put watch-and-wait cancer patients on a whole-food, plant-based diet for a year—no chemo, no radiation; lifestyle changes only—and get “a significant reduction in PSA level[s],” indicative of tumor shrinkage: their bloodstream becoming nearly eight times better at suppressing the growth of cancer cells. Do biopsies, and you can show changes in gene expression, a down-regulation of critical cancer genes, effectively switching off cancer growth genes at a genetic level. Whereas, if you instead eat lots of dairy after a prostate cancer diagnosis, you may suffer “a 76% higher risk of” death overall, “and a 141% [increased] risk of” dying specifically from your cancer.

Even without IGF-1, the milk protein casein appears to be a cancer cell “proliferation promoting factor,” increasing the growth of prostate cancer cells, at least in a petri dish. And the same thing with whey, the other major animal protein in dairy. See, “nearly 100% of advanced” prostate cancers thrive by upregulating a growth enzyme called TOR. And, dairy protein boosts TOR signaling even higher, which only makes sense. Calves have to grow like 40 times faster than human babies, and so cow’s milk has to be packed with growth promoters, not to mention the hormones in milk. Especially from cows who are already pregnant again.

How does the hormones in dairy have an effect on our health?

This “[c]ommercialized milk production by pregnant cows releases uncontrolled amounts of bovine steroid… [hormones] into the human food chain.” And so, the combination “may [well] explain the observed association between high dairy consumption and increased risk of [prostate cancer].”

“From an evolutionary perspective…the persistent ‘abuse’ of the growth-promoting signaling system of bovine milk by humans over their entire life span [not just drinking milk during infancy] maintains the most important hallmark of cancer biology:” this “sustained proliferative signaling” to grow, grow, grow. And so, there’s this interest in trying “to define [the] safe upper limits for long-term milk and dairy intake for the prevention of the most common dairy-promoted cancer in men.”

But if you look at diet and cancer guideline recommendations, yeah, milk may increase risk of prostate cancer. “However, no recommendation was provided for [cutting down on dairy] because the evidence for prostate cancer conflicted with decreased risk of colorectal cancer.” High dairy intake is associated with increased prostate cancer risk, but decreased colon cancer risk.

Why is the public not aware of connection to cancer growth?

So, it’s like alcohol may be an “intoxicating carcinogen,” but “policymakers hesitate to introduce effective alcohol policies, or even to support the addition of [cancer-warning] labels, for fear they might undermine [any] possible health benefits of alcohol use.” Now, I’ve talked about how the purported benefits of alcohol appear to be “evaporating.” Is dairy really protective against colon cancer?

If you put all the cohort studies together, where they measured dairy consumption and then followed people for years to see who got cancer, milk and total dairy consumption was indeed “associated with a reduction in colorectal cancer risk,” one of our deadliest cancers. Now, people who drink more milk just happen to tend to exercise more, smoke less, drink less, eat less meat—which could explain some of the association.

What are alternatives to dairy?

“However, many of the studies adjusted for [these kinds of] confounding factors.” More likely, it was the protective effects of the calcium, “which may bind [up] pro-inflammatory…bile acids in the gut,” though high-fat dairy products, like cheese, may actually increase bile acids, explaining why the cheese appeared to cancel out the calcium benefit. So, might we be able to get the best of both worlds by consuming non-dairy calcium sources?

If you randomize people to calcium supplements, you can get a significant reduction in recurring colon polyps, which can otherwise turn into cancer, though calcium pills have been associated with adverse cardiovascular effects. And so, the best of all worlds, if you want to take a precautionary approach in terms of nutrition and cancer, is to obtain calcium through low-oxalate dark green leafy vegetables, beans, split peas, chickpeas, and lentils—or, if necessary, “calcium-fortified foods,” such as soy or almond milk”.

CBD for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is one of the most common chronic pain conditions in the world.

Evidence suggests fibromyalgia is more prevalent in women.

Genetics – Fibromyalgia tends to run in families and there may be certain genetic mutations that may make you more susceptible to developing this disorder.

Infections – Some illnesses appear to trigger or aggravate fibromyalgia.

Physical or Emotional Trauma – Physical trauma, like a car accident, can sometimes trigger fibromyalgia.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia cover a wide variety of physical and mental deficiencies. The most common symptoms include:

Muscle pain – Pain associated with fibromyalgia is often described as a constant dull ache throughout the body. .

Fatigue – People with fibromyalgia often wake feeling tired, even after sleeping for long periods of time.  This means their bodies don’t get the chance to fully rest, which can lead to an ongoing cycle that increases pain and prevents quality sleep.

Cognitive difficulties – Commonly referred to as “fibro fog,” this symptom often impairs one’s ability to focus, pay attention, and concentrate on mental tasks.

Initially only treated by arthritis doctors, fibromyalgia has captured the attention of many healthcare providers. Today, fibromyalgia patients can be handled by their primary health care provider. While there is no cure for Fibromyalgia, a variety of medications and therapy can help control symptoms, including CBD oil. It’s common for fibromyalgia patients to experience a variety of symptoms. Treatment options may include the following:

Active exercise – Physical activity can lessen pain and improve fitness.

Acupuncture – This traditional Chinese practice uses thin needles inserted at crucial points of the body to restore the flow of energy.

Psychotherapy – A form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychotherapy helps the patient increase the understanding of their condition and explore the role of coping styles with physical sensations.

Chiropractic care – Using adjustment, manipulations, and stretches, chiropractors can help ease pain associated with fibromyalgia.

Massage – Massage may help alleviate muscle pain.

Physical therapy – Physical therapists can help restore physical function and mobility, maintain physical physique, and promote proper physical activity.

 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is derived from Cannabis plants, which refers to Hemp and Marijuana. CBD is found in both Hemp and Marijuana plants and has no psychoactive properties. This means that CBD doesn’t produce a “high,” as opposed to THC. CBD has the potential to be highly effective in treating pain, reducing inflammation, and relieving anxiety.

CBD is a cannabinoid, and cannabinoids are also naturally produced by the human body to help regulate its Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The Endocannabinoid System is a biological system responsible for maintaining essential health functions. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body in places such as:

Brain

Organs

Connective Tissues

Glands

Immune Cells

The Endocannabinoid System performs multiple tasks with the principal goal of maintaining homeostasis. CBD Oil may have the potential to stop nerves from sending pain signals between the brain and body tissue.

2016 study suggested that a lack of endocannabinoids, neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, may be at the root of chronic pain syndromes, like fibromyalgia.

Taking CBD Oil may help fibromyalgia patients by offering the following potential benefits:

Promotes calmness and relaxation

Minimizes pain and discomfort

Increases in daytime alertness

Deeper, more restful sleep

 

If you have not tried CBD oil before, it’s important to know that it affects everyone differently. The dose needed to achieve CBD’s potential therapeutic benefits may vary depending on factors like age, size, and severity of condition. It’s recommend starting with a small dose, like 5-10mg, and gradually increasing until you achieve desired results.

How does Nutrition Affect our Health| What’s Eating You

 

The debut of the awesome show (WEY) What's Eating You with Daniel & Courtney

Posted by Daniel DC Owens on Saturday, July 13, 2019

How does nutrition Affect our health| What’s Eating You

The answer is just as complicated as it is simple.  We as a people are facing what looks like the peak of  a health crisis.  The world has seen mortality rates increase for a decade and the top 3 out of 4 causes of death are health related.  The earth is starting to show the effects of losing environmental stability due to our eating habits.

I’m not here to convince you or chastise you for your choices as I believe it ineffective when giving information or knowledge.  I do believe however,  that when someone sees what they believe to be an issue they should be able to speak up as so long as they have at least thought about a solution to said problem.   I also find it ineffective to just see the problem and only lend a voice to that side of the table.

What’s Eating You is a new show that gives the viewer a platform to participate in conversations involving the 4 pillars of Health, Wealth, Faith, and Family.  The pilot episode goes right into nutrition and how food is our ultimate connection to nature and the universe.  The show will air live on PowerPlay Radio Network and What’s Eating You Facebook page every 2nd and 4th Saturday starting at 1 p.m. CST.   Please feel free to like, share, and comment as your participation helps us pinpoint what is most important to you and your family.

Having a discussion centered around data and figuring out what root causes keep us caught in these vicious cycles will help spark ideas and create effective action plans.  Feel free to email at nutritiondanstraightofficial@gmail.com

HEALTH: WHAT IS CBD? @DJGOJABEAN

INTRO TO CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substanceCBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.

CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.

Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THCCBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high.

The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.

HEALTH: 3 ways quality nutrition supplements help fight pain and disease!

3 ways quality nutrition supplements help fight disease!

3 ways quality nutrition supplements help fight disease!

Have you ever had a lingering surgery issue or been diagnosed with a disease such as fibromyalgia, or diabetes?  Many people around the world suffer with these issues everyday and now have become so common place that people are becoming numb to serious health ailments.  The U.S. accounts for well over 50 percent of prescription drug use worldwide and the percentage is growing larger as the years go by.  The drug epidemic has grown to massive proportions and drug companies are not slowing down anytime soon in the near future.  We the people have to take control over our health and learn  alternatives to achieve optimal health.  We should have come to the conclusion at this point that prescription drugs do not cure nor heal people they only mask symptoms and cause side effects. I will keep this brief and give you some benefits that come with high quality supplements.

  1. High quality supplements that are liquid and made from real fruits and vegetables pass along essential vitamins and nutrients for proper body function.  Have you ever wondered why certain body functions such as your ability to heal wounds dissipate over time?  One major reason can be linked to a shortage in the essential vitamin and minerals.  A key component in healing is the molecule Nitric Oxide which is naturally produced by the human body but as we get older our production slows down and we heal at a much lower rate.  How can one start producing such a molecule?  One way is to take synthetic drugs that help you pump out the molecule but they come with side effects because they are not natural.  The Noni fruit has been researched and proven to help the body produce Nitric Oxide naturally but is all Noni fruit drinks and products created equally? Short answer. No!  The best idea would be to look at products with clinical research and have been tested for unknown substances. To give you a better understanding of  what a lack of the essential vitamin and minerals will do to your body I have attached this chart directly from the FDA. Vitamin_and_Mineral_Chart
  2. High quality supplements can produce life changing results that are tangible such as the lowering of A1c and bad ldl cholesterol.  Arterial plaque builds up within our veins causing issues such as stroke, and heart attacks.  The research shows that the consumption of fruits and vegetables has been associated with reducing arterial plaque naturally and reversing the effects of these deadly diseases..  The only issue is that the fruits and vegetables of today are less nutritious as compared to just 50 years ago.  You do not get the same effect when eating these items so supplementing with a high quality product will usually give you the proper levels of concentrated fruits and vegetables to see a tangible difference in your health.
  3. The use of high quality supplements can help boost the ability for your brain to fight off disease such as dementia and Parkinson’s.  The world has come to the consensus agreement that omega 3 dhl is great at protecting your vital brain functions.  Most supplements contain omega 3 sourced from low quality farm raised fish and contain Tocopherols which are great but not the most effective or potent form of omega 3.  I will give you an important word to research called “Tocotrienol”   The recent research shows how Tocotrienols are showing great progress in the fight with Alzheimer and Cancer.  Your brain has the ability to bring a great amount of fortune and pleasure or agony and pain.  I would suggest that one take every precautionary measure to protect the one brain you get.

I only recommend certain supplements as stated earlier all supplements are not created equal.  I rarely ever send someone to get store bought supplements including those from stores such as GNC, Wal-Mart, Kroger etc..  You usually will get less than what you pay for with these supplements and most will have little to no effect.  You may even pay top dollar for a supplement with little to no benefit as well so you must look at ingredients to ensure that what you are putting into your body is a quality effective ingredient.

HEALTH: CBD OIL IS NOT THE SAME AS HEMP OIL @DJGOJABEAN

CBD oil is not the same as hemp oil

CBD oil is an oil that contains Cannabidiol.
CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant and usually combined with a base oil (often olive, coconut or MCT).
Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant and should not contain CBD, or any other cannabinoids.
Hemp oil is associated with its own list of health benefits.

HEALTH: ERASING THE ASTIGMATISM WITH CBD @DJGOJABEAN

Erasing The Astigmatism with CBD

Automatically people who don’t know enough or become blinded by social media assume CBD is and will “Get You High” That is False information.

When it comes to treating illnesses, anxiety, cancer, depression, and epilepsy with CBD these are just the beginning.

The possibilities seem almost endless with CBD!

To date, research has revealed that CBD has a wide range of medical benefits against more than 50 afflictions including acne, ADD/ADHD, Parkinson’s, mad cow disease, Huntington’s, kidney disease, rheumatism, sickle cell anemia, and Crohn’s disease, among others.

HEALTH: The Nutrition Gap| 3 leading causes of death in US

The Nutrition Gap| 3 leading causes of death in US

The Nutrition Gap and the 3 leading causes of death in the United States linked.

Vegetables does not mean bland, it actually means flavorful and colorful!

The United States is in the middle of a war and is getting its ass handed to it in a major way.  I’m not speaking on the pretend war on drugs or the irrational war on terrorism.  I will reserve those topics for fake outrage and less meaningful conversation.  I’m speaking on the health of a nation that is pathetically plunging to its own demise.  How can one be in a war that has such a drastic fatality rate that the top 3 wars combined would seem like a brief footnote in history.  The one topic that seems to be the elephant in the room and the one people take arms to avoid, Nutrition!

I do not believe people avoid the topic because they are knowledgeable and there is no discussion to be had but, simply put, most of us are ignorant to the information and hate that we have no knowledge about what we put in our bodies and how it works.  Nutrition can seem very complicated and seems to be such a broad topic that people get lost in a sea of misinformation. Three of the top four causes of death in the U.S. are heart disease, Cancer, and chronic lower respiratory disease.  These three alone account for over half of the deaths in The United States according to this shocking CDC report.

The million dollar question is what causes such a large proportion of deaths to fit in these three categories?  The answer is simple. A lack of nutrition knowledge and application can and will kill off the population in masses.  This epidemic has been a battle for over a decade and is only rising in number as we continue to take a Martin Luther King approach and turn the other cheek while our entire bloodline suffers.  We feel like we can eat, drink, and inject whatever we want and there will be no repercussions for our actions or lack thereof.  The western diet along with western medicine have long been the laughing stock of the world as we continue to lead the world in being the unhealthiest nation.

The second question is, how do we fix it?  NUTRITIONNNNNNNN?????  Hippocrates so elegantly said many moons ago “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”  How can someone with no awareness of today’s technological advances and resources know something so simple yet so complex to modern day society?  if we learn to put down the processed foods and cut down on meat, eggs, and dairy consumption the world around us may be more vibrant and productive.  We should be focusing on the most nutrient dense vegetables we can get our hands on such as green leafy vegetables, legumes , and various fruits.  The increase of fruits and

If only we ate our feast with more of these ingredients!

vegetables and decrease of the the previous mentioned foods have shown clinical proof and evidence that these diseases can be prevented and often times reversed.

I’m all about solutions and remedies instead of complaints and and crying.  We often times have to do something different to get a different result.  This is a call to action for those who are letting this message seep into their conscious brain and want a resolution to our healthcare crisis and prescription drug epidemic.  This simple solution will help bring a majority of issues into check especially if coupled with exercise.  There are many options that will change your life such as a high quality nutrition supplement that is clinically tested.  Instead of a doughnut for breakfast try water and a piece of fruit or a nice fruit and vegetable smoothie.  We all have choices to make and that require us to be disciplined and make a better decision for generations to come.
