Proactive Steps to a Cancer Free Life: Vitamin D

Intel Hub, Apr. 2, 2012

Cancer is an opportunistic disease. It uses the opportunity that it recognizes in a toxically burdened, nutritionally and emotionally deficient body to overrun your normal defense system. More and more research supports the optimization of our Vitamin D levels as an extremely important step in the quest for a cancer free, long, healthy life. In fact, a recent study in The American Journal of Cardiology found that Vitamin D deficiency (serum levels below 30 ng/ml or 75 nmol/L) was a strong independent predictor of all causes of death.

More than 70% of the people in the study were below the status of 30 ng/ml required for “sufficiency”, but many clinicians believe that the number for sufficiency should be closer to 50 ng/ml, putting about 95% of the people in a state of deficiency.

From Therapeutic Advances in Gastroenterology: “Some nontraditional roles ascribed to vitamin D include anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects. These effects have led to possible implications in the pathophysiology of immune-mediated diseases including multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In addition, vitamin D insufficiency has been linked to higher rates of cancers including colon, prostate and breast cancers.”

Taking an aspirin a day will cause cancer, not prevent it

Natural News, Apr. 1, 2012

The mainstream media is abuzz with new reports that claim taking an aspirin a day will supposedly help keep cancer away (http://www.naturalnews.com). But just a few years ago, mainstream science was declaring the exact opposite, as a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute back in 2004 found that daily aspirin intake is linked to a significantly increased risk of developing cancer.
Dr. Eva S. Schernhammer, M.D., Dr.P.H., from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, and her colleagues conducted an extensive investigation into the long-term effects of taking aspirin. They found that prolonged use can trigger cancer development in humans, and that there is no evidence that taking aspirin in any way helps prevent cancer.
“Our findings do not support a protective effect of analgesic use (of aspirin) on the risk of pancreatic cancer,” wrote Dr. Schernhammer at that time, which was also a rebuttal to other studies that had claimed taking aspirin helps prevent cancer. “Rather, aspirin appears to increase the risk of pancreatic cancer after extended periods of use.”

Are Your Morning Vitamins Slowly Killing You?

Propaganda courtesy of the Cochrane Collaboration -Ed.

Gizmodo, Mar. 24, 2012

A Cochrane Systematic review—a study which takes in as much data as possible from around the world to help firm up medical thinking—suggests that a number of the vitamins present in daily supplements can actually cause damage.
Combine that with the fact that some studies show that high doses of vitamin supplements can increase cancer risk, and it’s pretty compelling evidence to try and get your nutrients from your food rather than a pill.

Vitamins Will Kill You [“The BBC Radio flagship programme “Today” this morning (Wed), did a feature on a report from something called ‘The Cochrane Collaboration’ which claimed that use of vitamins and supplements could be damaging to health…The Cochrane Collaboration, and the Campbell Collaboration, with which Cochrane is increasingly allied, are examples of the kind of semi-invisible bodies, linked to major elite organisations, that drive health practices into national populations via govt & supra-govt. (e.g. EU) bureaucratic channels”]

Investigation: 75% Of US Nuclear Power Plants Leaking Radiation Into Drinking Water Up To 750 Times Legal Limits

Alexander Higgins Blog, June 22, 2011

Leaks of radioactive tritium have been detected from 48 of the 65 nuclear power plants, with 37 of those sites leaking at levels exceeding federal drinking water standards by hundreds of times. The EPA says even exceeding these levels by hundreds of times there is no cause for concern or threat to public health. Then why do we have regulations if exceeding them by hundreds of times is no threat to human health?

It is also reported that the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant here in NJ is leaking radiation directly into the aquifer that feeds the drinking water in surrounding towns. To of Oyster creek is Toms River which known as known locally as “cancer alley” due to the unexplained high rate of cancers in the area.

Radiation Protection, Now and Long Term

Fortify Health, Mar. 28, 2011

It is critical for those in the U.S., especially on the West Coast, to adjust to the continuing increased radiation, potential radiation and the resulting food contamination from Japan’s tragic nuclear disasters. You can check daily Geiger readings for Northern California, which extends from San Luis Obispo to Mendocino.

It is important to remember to take action calmly, after clearly evaluating the degree of true risk. DONT FORGET: TAKE BENTONITE OR ANY EDIBLE CLAY, 1/2 TSP ONCE A DAY, ALONG WITH A BICARBONATE SALT. This starts the detox process and pulls heavy metals out of the body gently.

Iodine 131 is only one part of the problem from Fukushima and does gravitate toward the thyroid and kidneys, and it can be blocked from the thyroid by dietary iodine. Iodine 131 poses a much smaller risk to adults (except young women). Chernobyl cancers occurred mostly in children because of the childhood growth process and dietary iodine deficiencies. Iodine depletion can be supplemented now and after exposure (there is a therapeutic window for weeks and even months after exposure).

TSA to retest airport body scanners for radiation

USA Today, Mar. 12, 2011

The Transportation Security Administration announced Friday that it would retest every full-body X-ray scanner that emits ionizing radiation — 247 machines at 38 airports — after maintenance records on some of the devices showed radiation levels 10 times higher than expected.

The TSA says that the records reflect math mistakes and that all the machines are safe. Indeed, even the highest readings listed on some of the records — the numbers that the TSA says were mistakes — appear to be many times less than what the agency says a person absorbs through one day of natural background radiation.
