Pineapple Fights Cancer Growth

According to the National Cancer Institute, cancer has now surpassed cardiac disease as the largest killer in the United States. The incidence of cancer increases with age, with approximately 80 % of cancers occurring in ppl over the age of 55.

However, according to researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, preventing cancer may be as simple as eating pineapple.

While analyzing bromelain, an extract of crushed pineapple stems, researchers found that two molecules isolated from the extract showed promise in fighting cancer growth:

One molecule, known as CCS, blocks a protein called Ras, which is defective in approximately 30 % of all cancers. The other, called CCZ, stimulates the body's own immune system to target and destroy cancer cells.

Researchers discovered these two molecules work simultaneously to block the growth of a broad range of tumor cells including breast, lung, colon, ovarian & melanoma.

While CCS & CCZ are protease enzymes (usually associated with breaking down proteins, as in the digestive process), the above findings distinguish the molecules as a new way of treating disease & potentially a whole new class of anti-cancer agents.

What's more, bromelain, a rich source of enzymes, has also been found to modulate immunological responses & has been proposed to be of clinical use.

How many people suffered in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it's the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss, protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections, feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment, boost your energy and improve your outlook on life

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America’s largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970's! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing... Extracts from the tree were shown to:
Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.

The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!

What's more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched, so why haven't you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be, why doesn't every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients?

The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health--and for many, our very lives are controlled by money and power.

Graviola- the plant that worked too well

One of America 's biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree's anti-cancerous properties and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

But that's where the Graviola story nearly ended?

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree- it's completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There's no way to make serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree's most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they'd be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits or even make back the millions it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn't let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that's dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed

When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola--and its shocking cover-up came in fast and furious.

The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public.

Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials--the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value were ever initiated.

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin."

The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers.

Seven years of silence broken, it's finally here!

A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America . The full Graviola story- including where you can get it and how to use it is included in Beyond Chemotherapy: New Cancer Killers, Safe as Mother's Milk, a Health Sciences Institute FREE special bonus report on natural substances that will effectively revolutionize the fight against cancer.

Marco's comment:
Unsure if the above mentioned is true or the otherwise. But I am going to plant one Graviola plant at my garden.

5 tricks to get your man to the doctor's

Below are the five tricks to get your man to the doctor's (No screaming or begging involved)

Be the damsel in distress
In the coyest, most honey coated voice you can summon, ask him: "Sweetheart, how will you take care of me if you're not well?"

Treat him like a child
When he coughs, pat his back. When he sneezes, put a tissue to his nose and make him blow it. Baby him enough and he'll be begging to see the doctor. Men detest being treated like children.

Scare him silly
All men are terrified of becoming infertile. Gently remind him that staying sick affects his sperm count, and can even affect his virility. He'll be dying to see the doctor.

Strike while the iron is hot
Strike when he is dog tired and woozy. Tell him how his company has been squeezing every ounce of his energy and underpaying him then casually mention company benefits. Use the following words: "MC", "day off", "couch-potato" and most importantly, "FREE".

Tempt him with food
Consistently cook up the blandest dishes you can think of for him, and feast on his favourite dish at the same table. Make sure he smells what you're eating

5 tips for easy weight loss

Tip1: Have at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetable each day
Fruits and vegetables come with beneficial fibers, vitamins and antioxidants. Not only do they fill up your stomach fast so you feel full but are also low in calories and helps to keep your calorie count low.

Tip2: Never skip meals
Try to eat 5- 6 meals throughout the day. Having small, frequent meals instead of three big main meals helps to balance your calorie intake throughout the day and keeps your blood sugar level balanced.

Tip3: Go for fresh wholesome meals
If you can, get fresh food. Try and avoid processed and convenient foods such as fast food which are often higher in sodium and fat content.

Tip4: Reduce the intake of sugary drinks
Juices, carbonated drinks, and cream& sugar in your coffee or tea can all add up. Drink no less than 8 glasses of water a day instead. In addition to providing hydration to your body, water will be also help you feel full.

Tip5: Work your body
Most experts recommend 30- 60 minutes physical activity a day to stay healthy. Also try weight-bearing exercises at least twice a week. This will help burn unwanted calories.

Marco's comment:
Chew your food slowly before swallow. Besides, if you eat out, instead of ordering fruit juices or soft drinks, get yourself a cup of green tea or plain water.

"感冒"- 多喝水卻很少尿一定要看

感冒多喝水卻很少尿尿一定一定要看。 女生要注意,男生要給你的女伴看!
希望大家都能注意自己身體細微的變化! 如果感冒多喝水卻很少尿尿一定要有警覺心, 因為腎臟的神經很大條很粗心不會警告你, 事業誠可貴, 健康價更高!
俗話說經一事長一智,不過我寧可沒經歷這件事, 不論你多忙,請你看完這個正在發生的事......

〝感冒〞讓我的一個好同事(其實可以說是好朋友), 現年26歲,在耶誕節那天住進醫院的加護病房直到今天 (12/28)都沒出來。

她, 一個花樣年華的女孩子, 才26歲,前幾天不舒服, 講話有鼻音, 告訴我們她應該感冒了, 她媽媽叫她去看醫生, 她說她自已多喝開水就好了, 過了兩天, 實在很不舒服才去看醫生, 開始服葯, 起初有好一點, 但是她告訴媽媽每天喝很多水, 可是排尿很少,也沒在意, 但是很容易疲倦, 這樣大約過了三四天,她在12/22還活蹦亂跳的和我們一起參加公司尾牙, 12/23還和朋友一起出外遊玩; 12/24早上就沒起床過一直在睡覺, 她媽媽問她, 她說應該是〝感冒〞很累要睡覺就這樣, 一直到12/25早上她媽媽說, 已經睡一整天了該起來看看吃點東西服葯, 結果她才發覺自已根本站不住, 而且腹痛緊急送往醫院, 直接送入加護病房檢查原因, 原先醫院推測是腹膜炎要緊急動手術, 但經過胃腸科主治醫生初步檢查覺得不像, 就去照超音波, 發覺胃腸根本沒事, 這才又找了婦產科醫生會診, 又去照超音波, 結果一樣檢查不出什麼問題。

過一夜12/26早上, 她全身酸痛躺不住, 坐著呼吸急促, 緊急戴氧氣罩, 醫院發覺她根本沒排過尿, 這才找了腎臟科醫生會診, 腎臟科醫生一檢查, 從她臉上出現二個紅點, 及一直沒排尿, 推測是急性敗血症引發急性腎衰竭, 但還不能確定, 所以抽血去檢驗, 另外, 培養她體內的細菌, 看是哪一種細菌這樣厲害, 但是抽血檢驗要下午才會有結果, 培養細菌要三天才會有結果, 腎臟科醫師推測是一種名為葛蘭氏, (我不知道字對不對, 這個譯音是來自醫生口中)細菌的頑強細菌進入血液中直接破壞血小板才會是目前的病狀,建議醫院使用專門針對葛蘭氏細菌的抗生素為她注射, (一直到此時醫院還是用一般的抗生素注射, 因為沒查出病因, 無法對症下葯!)。
但是, 一直到12/26中午, 我去加護病房看她時, 剛好遇到腎臟科醫師門診完來看她, 但我已看到 手肘靠著床邊的部份已立即出現了淤血且變黑, 因為無法排尿而產生的水腫,這 位醫師隨即問了我的身份後, 要找她的父母說明病情, 我及她的父母才在這位好心的醫師詳細解說下, 瞭解她的病況己到了危及生命的階段, 急性敗血症己經引發了第一項併發症-急性腎衰竭, 目前臉上的紅點及手肘的淤血都是急性敗血症的徵兆, 目前已出現了呼吸急促的病狀, 接下來可能會引發腦部缺氧而無法呼吸!

正式宣佈有三天的危險期, 並且立即安排洗腎, 清除腎臟內的積水。
今天12/27中午我眼看她, 加護病房內的她插入鼻管, 管內都是血, 我還要強忍著眼淚, 告訴她,嗨! 今天看起來氣色好多了, 躺著沒問題、可以睡的著就好了, 明後天開始好好補補又可以一起上班了,出去問了她媽媽, 才知道今早併發了胃出血, 緊急插管抽血 ........ 她媽媽對著我一直掉眼淚說:我祇要她能好, 我怎樣都沒關係...

我要奉勸各位好朋友一些事, 這是那位好心醫生的提醒:
每天在我們身邊都有很多細菌,〝感冒〞祇是你的身體提醒你, 免疫系統受到傷害, 有任何症狀都要一五一十告訴醫生, 好讓醫生能研判確實的病 情!

上洗手間前後都要洗手!以免細菌經由尿道進入身體破壞我們的血液組織, 引發如此嚴重後果, 還有不要諱疾忌醫! 畢竟,生命是我們自己的!

Beware of birth control pills

Received a forwarded email that worth sharing with the readers especially women. Nobody could tell if the content is true or fake, but it is better to take note than ignorance.

Recently this past week, my cousin Nicole Dishuk (age 31...newly graduated student with a doctoral degree about to start her new career as a Doctor...) was flown into a nearby hospital, because she passed out.

They found a blood clot in her neck, and immediately took her by helicopter to the ER to operate. By the time they removed the right half of her skull to relieve the pressure on her brain; the clot had spread to her brain causing severe damage.

Since last Wednesday night, she was battling... they induced her into a coma to stop the blood flow, they operated 3 times... Finally, they said there was nothing left that they could do... they found multiple clots in the left side of her brain... the swelling wouldn't stop, and she was on life support...

She passed away at 4:30 yesterday. She leaves behind a husband, a 2yr old Brandon and a 4yr old Justin... They found was a birth control pill she was taking that allows you to only have your period 3 times a year... They said it interrupts life's menstrual cycle, and although it is FDA approved... shouldn't be - So to the women in my address book - I ask you to boycott this product & deal with your period once a month - so you can live the rest of the months that your life has in store for you.

*Please send this to every woman you know - you may save someone's life... Remember, you have a cycle for a reason!

The warnings and side effects of the birth control pills are horrible. Please, please forward this information to as many daughters and sons, co-workers, friends and relatives. Several lives have already been changed.

Marco's comment:
Condom is still the best way for birth control. Besides, it is also proven to be very effective on prevention of STDs (Sexual Transmitted Diseases). Why choose birth control pill while there is a better alternative?

Men's fitness

As you age, your body loses muscle tissue and your metabolism slows down. Exercise is the best way to get physically fit and lose weight. It can also add years to your life.

Experts recommend 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity at least three times a week.

Select the best plan that is favorable to your lifestyle, whether it is at home or a fitness club. Pick a form of exercise you will enjoy the most and start out slowly, increasing your activity and work out-time gradually.

Consider adding basic weight training to build muscles, burn calories and control body fat. If you're beginner, try increasing your personal fitness in your everyday life by walking more, doing gardening, painting, and parking your car further from your destination.

Not only will you have the satisfaction of getting things done, you'll enjoy the benefits of being physically fit.

You don't need to lump your exercise all in one session. Try it in 10 minute increments if this is easier for you and as time allows.
