Broccoli is in the news again. It seems like every second day I read about the wonders of broccoli, or more exactly the benefits of the compounds broccoli contains.
Originally cultivated in Italy, in Roman times, the original plant looked very different from today’s commercially grown variety.
The edible part of the broccoli is the flowerhead. With the migration of Italians throughout the world, so broccoli has spread to be enjoyed by many people.
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable related to cauliflower, which is also closely resembles. The stems and stalks of the Broccoli plus the soft florets are all edible.
Broccoli provides a number of important benefits, but perhaps the most important of these benefits is its possible anti-cancer properties. Broccoli contains phytochemicals such as sulforaphane and indoles, which provide strong anticancer benefits. In particular, research into indole carbinol has shown that this compound may help to inhibit chemicals that promote the growth of tumors, thereby providing protection against cancers and tumor formation.
The various compounds contained in broccoli have also been shown to help prevent cancer cells from spreading to other parts of the body and to boost the effects of various detoxifying enzymes.
In addition to its role in fighting cancer, broccoli may be able to improve the appearance of the skin as well. That is because sulforaphane, one of the major compounds found in broccoli and similar vegetables, may be able to boost the detoxifying effects of liver and skin cells. Some recent studies have also suggested that the compounds found in broccoli may be able to repair the sun damage to the skin.
This is Part A of my new Information Series “Health – A to Z”.

We are not what we eat, we are what we absorb. Clogged colons prevent us from properly absorbing nutrients.
The fruit of a palm tree found in the Amazon rainforest. High in antioxidant goodness.
Contain healthy fats, vitamin E, magnesium and potassium all of which are vital to a healthy life. Eat a small handful between meals to get the goodness and stop eating junk food.
We all want to slow down the aging process. Keeping our bodies properly nourished and hydrated is essential.
Many foods have natural anti cancer properties. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables (lots of dark green leafy ones, and highly colored ones). Include garlic and other fresh herbs plus spices like turmeric and pepper.
Naturally occurring substances which neutralize free radicals which cause damage to our cells. Many types abound in fresh fruits and vegetables – a good reason to have a varied diet.
It’s just over a year since a good friend told us he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He has not been forgotten. As a lifelong fitness fan and non-smoker he was the last person you would expect to suffer from that horrendous disease.
Tragically three months after his diagnosis he passed away.
I now keep an eye out for anti-cancer information and pass it on. I’ve found an interesting book written by a Ph.D which contains independently verified information and meets The American Cancer Society (ACS) criteria by which mainstream and alternative cancer treatments are measured. They do this by asking three questions:
Has the method been objectively demonstrated in the peer-reviewed scientific literature to be effective?
Has the method shown potential for benefit that clearly exceeds the potential for harm?
Have objective studies been correctly conducted under appropriate peer review to answer these questions?
The author believes his information meets these criteria. So I’d recommend you seriously consider looking further into this new information.
“(NaturalNews) Cancer will be the number one killer in the world by the year 2010, overtaking the spot now held by heart disease, according to a recent report from Associated Press. International health experts foresee a doubling in the global rate of cancer deaths by 2030. Cancer diagnoses have been steadily rising around the globe and are expected to hit 12 million this year, with deaths from cancer logging in at 7 million. By 2030 this appalling toll will hit 27 million diagnoses and 17 million deaths. What can you do to make sure you are not among the gruesome statistics? Assuming you do not smoke or drink excessively, here is a list of the top 10 steps for avoiding cancer. Anyone who has had cancer can use these steps to prevent a recurrence.
Make high quality food a priority
The quality of the food supply is very poor, being grown in depleted soil, transported long distances, stored, processed, and packaged. There is very little nutrition left in such food. Yet high quality nutrients are required by the body to keep it free of cancer. Food is a lot more than just calories. It is the bedrock of the body’s defense, so only the highest quality, most nutrient packed food should be eaten. High quality food is not about what tastes the best, but what will make you feel the best.
It is up to us to be as proactive as we can when dealing with what life has offered if we hope to retain our health. Eating locally and organically grown and produced food is the best way to get maximum nutrition. Since everyone does not have access to this kind of food, the next best thing is to make a commitment to eat whole foods that retain their integrity and have not been processed. Whole foods are things like apples, celery, potatoes and chicken legs, items that have not been altered from their natural state.
Food prepared at home is best because restaurant food is low on nutrition and high on toxic chemicals. But stay away from packaged foods and other products of food technology. They are processed, low on nutrients, and usually chocked full of chemicals. They have been created to benefit the food company that manufactures them, not the person who has to eat them. A plant based diet that places primary emphasis on vegetables and fruits eaten raw offers the highest level of cancer preventing compounds. A diet that places primary emphasis on processed carbohydrates like pancakes, bread, cake and snack foods offers the lowest level of cancer protection.
If avoiding cancer is the goal, eat the highest quality food that can be found and afforded. When times are though, think of an investment in high quality food as something that can never be taken from you, and will never lose its value. High quality food will enhance your looks and appeal to a much greater extent than a new outfit, hairdo or manicure. There is nothing that creates a radiant appearance like the glow of good health.
A diet that frequently includes known cancer fighting food is of tremendous value in the quest to remain cancer free. The Budwig protocol is the only well documented food cure for cancer. It consists of flax oil mixed with cottage cheese. Other known potent cancer fighters are berries, apples eaten with their seeds, almonds, Brazil nuts, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, green leafy vegetables, beans and other legumes, garlic, tea, grapes, red wine, avocados, and tomatoes. Most culinary herbs have cancer fighting properties so use them whenever possible. Turmeric, ginger, rosemary, cumin, and cayenne are among the richest in cancer fighting compounds.
Stay as chemically free as possible
When the body is chemicalized, the immune system is so busy dealing with the toxic chemical onslaught that it cannot do the jobs it was meant to do. One job of the immune system is to make sure the cancerous cells produced by the body every day are identified and eliminated before they can turn into a full blown cancer. The immune system perceives toxic chemicals as just what they are, foreign invaders that do not exist in nature. It responds by trying to oust these invaders from the body. While it is busy doing that, a few cancerous cells can slip by unnoticed and a cancer can begin.
We are living in a time of chemical assault like never before. Our food is full of chemicals, the air we breathe is polluted, and the water supply contains industrial waste and pharmaceutical residues. Our personal care and household products are a toxic chemical soup. Add to that the threat from electro magnetic fields (EMFS) such as produced by power lines, computers, cell phones and even electric alarm clocks, and the total environmental threat we deal with on a daily basis is mind boggling.
Anyone who has been on the standard American diet, taking prescription drugs, and using personal care and household products from traditional retail outlets has a huge store of toxins in the body that need to be eliminated before they can contribute to the development of cancer. This can be accomplished by practicing yoga and using the breathing techniques prescribed by yoga masters, or by deep tissue massage. For the first few times, each should be followed by a general purpose antioxidant supplement like R-Lipoic Acid, and the drinking of plenty of pure water. Both will flush out toxins. Cilantro juice is another way to flush out many toxins including heavy metals. Follow the juice with chlorella or IP6 to escort them from the body. There are many other detox formulas on the market.
It is relatively easy to find personal care, cosmetic, and household products that are free of toxic chemicals. Non-toxic products can be easily ordered on line and shipped to your home. Install a water purification system, preferably one that uses reverse osmosis to get the toxins out of your drinking water and the water in which you bathe. These are also available online. Let fresh air into your home or workplace whenever possible. Use houseplants to keep the air in your environment free of pollutants. One medium sized houseplant for every 100 square foot of space should do the trick. Larger plants provide even more natural air cleaning.
Do the best you can to rid your environment of EMFs. For starters, never sit with a laptop computer on your lap. Get rid of those old style televisions and computer monitors that emit huge amounts of radiation. Throw out your microwave. If you aren’t buying packaged processed foods, you won’t need it. For a quick heating device, get an inexpensive toaster oven. Move the alarm clock from next to the bed to across the room. Do not use a cell phone unless you have to, and then use it only with a headset or in the speakerphone mode. Never carry electronic gadgetry mounted on your body.
Learn to read labels. If you do not recognize the ingredients as compounds that occur in nature, do not buy the product.
Keeping yourself and your family as free of toxins as possible requires a new way of thinking and approaching life. One of the first priorities for making a purchase should be how much the product will add to the quest for a long and healthy life. When thoughts go in this direction you will begin to see how people are being manipulated and used by many of the large corporations. Producers that make products containing toxic chemicals are showing no regard for their customer’s health or the well being of their families. They will use people however then can to enrich their bottom lines. As people become aware of this, their criteria for a purchase evolves to the point where they naturally purchase only products that will enhance their health.
Run away from prescription and over-the-counter drugs
Socrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”. If he were alive today he would probably be appalled by a society that is tightly in the grip of pharmaceutical companies. These companies sell patented toxic chemicals that do little or nothing to keep people well and healthy on any sustained basis. Their products mask symptoms that should be given attention. Symptoms are a wake up call that something is wrong. They need to be traced back to their cause, so the cause can be addressed and corrected, not covered up and ignored.
Whether it is a prescribed medication or an over-the-counter drug, the affect on the body is the same as with the toxic chemicals in food and other products. Drugs are lab created and do not exist in nature. If you put a drug into your body, your immune system has to deal with it as though it too is a foreign invader. Drugs raise the level of toxicity in the body and must be detoxified by a liver already stressed from trying to deal with the high level of environmental toxins.
No one gets better taking pharmaceuticals, and there is no healing. The side effects that are produced by one drug frequently lead to more prescriptions for more drugs in what becomes a vicious cycle. If people take enough drugs their bodies become chemical waste dumps where cancer can easily flourish. The reliance on drugs has diverted attention from the real issue, which is how to care for ourselves and keep ourselves healthy. Once people become truly health conscious, they resent the drug companies because they know that these companies do not have people’s best interest at heart with the products they sell. They are just like the companies that make chemicalized foods, trying to get people’s money without given anything of value in return. People who have wised up to the harmful effects of patent medicines see the constant barrage of commercials for drugs as blatant manipulation and brainwashing.
There are natural alternatives to drugs that do not just mask symptoms but actually produce healing. There is an abundance of natural compounds that can keep people in good health. These substances leave the immune systems and liver strong and able to provide protection from cancer.
Keep your gut healthy and happy
People have trouble with their stomachs and digestive tracts and write it off as an inevitable result of stress or aging. Yet many natural healers say death begins in the gut, a statement that underscores how vital the health of the gut is for overall well being. When the gut is not healthy, food cannot be properly processed and assimilated into the body, leaving people unable to have access to the wealth of nutrients that high quality food provides. Since it is these nutrients that provide protection from cancer, it becomes imperative that gut health be a priority in any anti-cancer effort.
The deterioration of the digestive system occurs over a period of years and can be signaled by sounds of a thunderstorm coming from the gut. Other symptoms include headaches, increased susceptibility to infection, gas, bloating, constipation, indigestion, and falling energy levels. Failure to address declining gut function creates an opportunity for cancer and other degenerative diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, lupus, arthritis, and psoriasis. Many chronic diseases start with gut deterioration.
The four pounds of bacteria that live in the gut are the backbone of the immune system. They are our unpaid personal bodyguards, willing to go to war against aberrant cells, bacteria, viruses, pathogens and foreign invaders to defend us. They also help out with digestion and make sure nutrients are absorbed so they can be used by the body to keep it healthy.
One of the worst things that can happen to ruin the happy relationship between people and their bacteria is antibiotics. They kill off the bodyguards along with the enemies, leaving no defense against unfriendly bacteria that would like to inhabit the intestinal tract. After a round of antibiotics, it is essential to take probiotics to reestablish friendly bacteria in the gut. Kefir, a culture that can be started in any kind of milk including coconut milk, offers powerful protection to the gut and as a result, to the entire body. Kefir culture is available online.
Even if no antibiotics have been taken, the herd of friendly bacteria in the gut can become depleted to the point where it can no longer do what it is meant to do. Pesticides in food are lethal to intestinal bacteria. Even if the skins of fruits and vegetables are well washed, pesticides remain because they work systemically and will be contained in the body of the produce. Chlorine is meant to kill bacteria in water and will kill off the bacteria in the gut as well. Eventually the gut becomes so depleted that it will be as though antibiotics have been taken even if they have not. When this happens, unfriendly microorganisms are free to set up shop in the digestive tract.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria similar to the bacteria found in the guts of breastfed infants who have been provided this natural protection against many diseases by their mothers. Almost every supplement company sells probiotics in capsule form. Although they don’t work as well as kefir at restoring depleted levels of bacteria, they are good for maintenance of a healthy digestive system. Yogurt will also help preserve the health of the digestive tract once it has been established, but it won’t do much to help repopulate a digestive tract after antibiotic use or years of general neglect.
Restore declining hormones to optimal levels
For women and for men, achieving and maintaining hormonal balance is probably the single greatest intervention that can be taken to preserve health. Hormonal decline can start as early as the late 20’s for women and the mid 30’s for men. It is an opening door that leads to aging and degenerative diseases like cancer. While women and men have their hormones in abundance and in balance, they are vital, vibrant and reproductive. Nature has a use for them and wants to keep them around. When hormones decline and are not replaced, a powerful message is sent to nature saying these people are no longer necessary in the great scheme of life.
Hormones control mental and physical well being. Energy level, metabolism, brain functioning, skeletal integrity, mood, motivation, and zest for life are orchestrated by the hormones. All the hormones work together to keep us healthy and functioning at our best. If one hormone is not up to par, repercussions will manifest through all the body systems. If people do not feel well and at their best a large part of the time, chances are pretty good that at least one hormone is not at the level it should be. If they have trouble sleeping, feel depressed, gain weight without increasing food intake, have low energy during some part of the day, or have lost interest in sex or cannot perform, their hormone levels are probably declining and out of balance. For anyone who already has cancer or any other degenerative disease, hormonal imbalance is almost a sure thing. Until hormones are replenished and balanced, real sustainable recovery will be impossible.
The only way to achieve hormone balance is with bioidentical hormone replacement that restores hormone levels to where they were at the prime of life. Teenagers and people in their early 20’s usually feel good and energetic most of the time. They do not have cancer. This is because they have a full complement of balanced hormones.
Achieving this level of hormonal balance and the vibrant health, joy of living and freedom from worrying about cancer and other diseases that goes with it, requires the help of a physician trained in anti-aging medicine or hormone balancing. Many traditional doctors have never heard of bioidentical hormones or if they have, they will advise their patients not to use them because they are not drugs. Since many bioidentical hormones are made at compounding pharmacies, this is a good place to start the search for hormone balance. Ask who they recommend.”
Reduce the quantity of processed foods you consume. There are hidden sugars and fats, plus lots of chemical additives you’ll want to avoid. Read labels – if you need a science degree to understand the ingredients you probably shouldn’t eat it.
Reduce your salt intake, use only natural quality salt which is chemical free and contains minerals.
Add flavor with herbs, spices or lemon juice instead of adding salt.
Reduce you fat intake. Consume only healthy fats. Learn more about dietary fats
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce the quantity of meat you consume. Look at the portions on your plate – make sure vegetables make up 75%.
that there’s a simple formula that has been *scientifically proven* to prevent and CURE virtually all diseases? Find out why this one-minute therapy is being suppressed in the U.S. while more than 15,000 European doctors have been using it to heal millions of patients – and how you can use it, too.
I just came across this website that talks about a one-minute cure for virtually all diseases. My first reaction was, “Yeah right!” Sounds too good to be true — but wait till you read what it’s all about.
The info gives lots of *proof* that it’s the real deal — I’m convinced!
This one-minute cure is an awesome therapy that most people will never know because powerful enterprises, cartels and agencies whose financial interests are threatened by it are keeping this info from reaching the general public.
But today, you’ll find out how to use this astonishing cure to heal yourself and your loved ones of disease — and *prevent* yourself from getting any disease as well.
It was never my intention to crusade about natural methods of treating cancer.
However, recent events have caused me to look deeper into the subject. Seeing first-hand the tragic results of the “medical” treatment of cancer means I would be neglectful to ignore alternatives and share the results.
Having said that I’ll readily state I’m not a researcher. So what can I do? I can look for people who have already done the work and made it available in a easily accessible form.
I also feel that we must be responsible for our own health and wellbeing. So take control now and take some time to review the following list to see if one suits your needs – I sincerely hope you find what you’re looking for:-
I’ve always felt that, if I found information which can help others achieve better health, I had a duty to share it.
Thanks to technology it’s now easier than ever to share such information. So, try to get over “information overload” and take some time to read things which really matter to you.
On Tuesday October 28, 2008 a good friend passed away from cancer. I’m not going to relate any details, I respect the privacy of the person and his family. The only reason I bring his untimely death to your attention is to highlight that we should not take our health, or the health of our friends’ and family, for granted. Ever.
So it’s my duty to share any important information I find.
Please take some time to click the following links, which I hope will guide you to needed information.
This is not my review, it’s a review of someone far more knowledgeable than me, please read it now.
“Ty Bollinger taught me many things about cancer I didn’t know. Coming from most people, this would be a mild compliment. Coming from me, it is somewhat more than that. You see, I have studied natural cancer treatments every day for the last eight years. I’ve written two books and 100 newsletters on the subject. I’ve given 25 workshops around the country on Beating Cancer-Gently. I “coach” about 10-12 people a week on the phone. They are people who have read one of my books. I coach them on the details of “what I would do if I were them.” Ty’s research and writing are superb. He has collected all the data on the history of alternative cancer treatments and prepared this vital information for you in a very readable style. I will read this book a second time shortly to make sure I didn’t miss anything. If you or a loved one have cancer, you MUST read this book. There is no other book which presents this subject in layman’s language with the thoroughness of Ty’s book.”
What makes this book so superbly useful is that Ty gives you the complete explanation of the background of the treatment — who discovered it, exactly how it works, what type of cancer it should be used for — and then tells you how to order the substance or contact the clinic or medical professional who can administer it.
Believe me, you cannot find this information in as complete and current a form anywhere else — not even in my own books. Just buy it. You won’t be sorry.

The following is an extract from an article published on NaturalNews.com
There’s a new reason, and a big one, to think that we benefit from free-radical-inhibiting antioxidants. We’ve long thought that by reducing free radicals, antioxidants can help prevent cancer, of course. But a recent experiment at Johns Hopkins and published in the March 14 issue of Science shows how antioxidants may be doing much more: interfering with the growth of cancers that are already established, and potentially, even reversing them once established, by knocking out communications signals between cancer cells that encourage cells to grow and divide. Those communications signals turn out to be… free radicals, which the cancer cells often produce in abundance.
Maqui berry is a deeply purpled berry from the Patagonia region. It is a sacred plant to the Mapuche Indians, the indigenous inhabitants of Central and Southern Chile.
The Mapuche Indians is the only unconquered Native American Indians in the entire America continent. They have resisted the Inca and Spaniards’ attempt to conquer them. The warriors’ legendary strength and stamina are largely contributed by drinking a fermented maqui drinks several times daily.
Maqui is revered as a symbol of health, strength, and believed to have profound and mystical healing powers by the Mapuche Indians. Besides increasing warmth during the winter month and increase strength and stamina, maqui berries has been traditionally used by the Mapuche Indian for a variety of ailments such as sore throat, diarrhea, ulcers, hemorrhoids, birth delivery, fever, tumors and other ailments. The maqui leaves have been used to treat diabetes, exhibit anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antimicrobial effects.

Assisting in bilingual education, software, supplies and technology to aid in the future of their children and helping to preserve their lifestyle by implementing a program to aid in the preservation of their natural forests.
I’m still reading Dr David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anti Cancer – a new way of life”. Because of his medical/research background this book not only presents scientifically valid statistics and reasoning behind his words, he also provides interesting, and understandable, commentary on the reasons why our generation is more commonly being afflicted with cancers.
For example, the immense increase in the production of synthetic chemicals from 1 million tons in 1930 to 200 million tons today.
The purpose of Dr Servan-Schreiber’s book is not to scare you, but to reassure you that it’s possible to do things to protect yourself. He provides tables which summarize, e.g. which foods to limit/reduce and which foods to eat instead.
I have covered many of the principles of nourishing your body at a cellular level and avoiding toxins in my Cell Rejuvenation Series. Look it up and read this 10 part series when you get the chance. I suggest you bookmark it so you can easily return.
You will note it is attributed to Johns Hopkins, a world famous and highly respected medical research school based in the United States. However, none of the claims in the message were published or in any way endorsed by Johns Hopkins. In fact, Johns Hopkins has released a statementdenying any involvement.
It really is a shame they cannot address the email and give us their point of view, rather than just denying any involvement. Surely it’s a good thing to give the public sensible anti cancer information.
Of course I’d like that information to be correct and be useful in our daily existence. To ensure you’re getting correct, up to date information I recommend you read Dr David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anti Cancer – A new way of life” which directly addresses a lot of the points.

“AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY.
Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added> to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic build-up.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

contains more than 23 vitamins and minerals, 18 amino acids
approximately 60% protein in the form of amino acids
considered a complete protein.(contains all 8 essential amino acids)
protein content is superior to animal proteins
the body has to break these (animal protein) down into their component amino acids before it can utilize them
full spectrum of the B-vitamins
twice the amount of folic acid as raw beef liver
one of the richest natural sources for niacin (vitamin B3)
contains more B12 than raw beef liver
is very high in beta-carotene
good concentrations of calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, phosphorus and iodine, zinc, iron, potassium and iodine also a rich and unique source of micronutrients
7% Chlorophyll by weight
5-10 times as much chlorophyll as spirulina and
10 times the amount found in alfalfa
Chlorella contains amino acids (protein), enzymes (including pepsin for digestion), vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates.
It contains over 18% Chlorella Growth Factor, high in RNA and DNA, the building blocks of life.
Up to 10% of chlorella can be RNA, while DNA levels can be as high as 3%. Also high in the essential fatty acids, as well as an array of phytonutrients and carotenoids.
AS A FOOD Chlorella is a whole food – you eat it in its entirety.
Chlorella contains a balance of phytonutrients and co-factors beneficial to overall restoration and maintenance of health.
Each Chlorella cell is a self-sufficient organism because it contains all its life forces within itself.
Chlorella is able to deliver a wide range of nutrition our bodies need with its wealth of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids and other vital nutrients.
High Chlorophyll content
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
High fiber cell wall
Storehouse of nutrients
In Japan, Chlorella is regarded as a functional food, rather than a dietary supplement. A functional food is one that contains all the essential nutrients needed by the human body and can perform many therapeutic functions in the body
The unique structure and contents of Chlorella makes it an excellent detoxifier.
DETOXIFICATION Detoxification and elimination of toxins are crucial for recovery from health problems and essential achieving for optimum health. Capable of removing alcohol from the liver and heavy metals (such as cadmium, mercury, uranium and arsenic), certain pesticides, herbicides, and polychlorbiphenyls (PCBs) from the body’s tissues.
Chlorella detoxifies the liver, gallbladder and colon, indigestible fibrous outer cell wall has been proven to have the ability to bind with heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, chlordecone, a harmful insecticide and toxins such a PCBs and carry these toxic substances out of the body.
The cleansing of the blood, bowel, and liver begins after Chlorella has been taken regularly for 3 months or more depending on the amount taken.
Large doses of Chlorella will facilitate fecal mercury excretion.
Cooking meat at high temperatures (broiling, frying and barbecuing) causes an interaction between meat proteins and the heat to form heterocyclic amines (HCAs). HCAs are known carcinogens implicated in increased colon cancer.
Chlorella has the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any green food and is also one of the richest sources of beta-carotene and is an excellent source of zinc.
Researches has found that zinc is effective in the prevention of “cadmium induced suppression of the immune system”.
IMMUNE BOOSTER Chlorella accelerated the recovery of developing cells in colony forming units and restored the population of mature white blood cells.
Chlorella is well known in the Japanese scientific community as a “biological response modifier” — a natural substance that improves the capacity of the body’s immune system.
Chlorella induces higher levels of interferon and stimulates macrophages, cells that actively protect against disease by digesting foreign substances in the body.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) unique to chlorella stimulates healing and replacement of cell tissue.
The sugars of the nucleotides include mannose, rhamnose, arabinose, glactose and xylose.
New field of science called glyco biology that is studying the importance of these sugars in immune regulation.
MEMORY BOOSTER Chlorella is a storehouse of vital nutrients that the brain needs to maintain memory.
The brain has the highest concentration of RNA within the body.
RNA is vital for memory and learning. The brain cells have limited capacity to make nucleosides and nucleotides that are combined by cells to create RNA.
Diet deficient in nucleosides and nucleotides may be a factor in age-related memory loss
Chlorella is a very rich source of nucleosides and nucleotides.
Chlorella is an excellent natural source of the “brain-boosting” nutrient, phosphatidylserine (PS), a phospholipid found on the surface of the brain cell membrane.
Studies on animals and humans have shown that PS supplementation may improve memory and learning abilities. PS supplementation also lightens depression and may delay memory loss associated with Alzhemer’s disease.
Free radicals are toxic time bombs that cause an “energy shortage” in the brain cells causing mental lethargy.
Anti-oxidants are nutrient that can nullify the effects of free radical damages.
Chlorella is packed with antioxidants. A rich natural source of two powerful, memory-enhancing antioxidants, Beta-carotene and chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is a powerful antioxidant that protects the mitochondria from free radical damage.
Chlorophyll was found to be more effective than vitamin C.
CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH Chlorella is the richest natural source of chlorophyll, – structure almost identical to that of haemoglobin. Chlorophyll cells have a magnesium molecule at the centre.
Magnesium is essential for the heart to function properly. Chlorella is also a good source of Omega-3 oils, which are known to protect against heart disease.
Research programs have indicated that regular use of chlorella helps guard against heart disease, reduce high blood pressure and lower blood cholesterol levels.
Chlorella is a “cholesterol-cutting superfood.” Studies – long-term use of chlorella helps lower serum cholesterol and reduce “bad” (LDL) cholesterol levels.
Forty-five tablets (nine grams) of chlorella per day of Chlorella can help fight free radical damage that can lead to arterial lesions and plaque buildup associated with atherosclerosis
Chlorella may improve elasticity of arteries.
Chlorella helps take the pressure off of hypertension.
Perfectly created by nature to remove the toxic residue of smoking. Cigarette smoke reduces the blood’s ability to deliver oxygen to the heart, which reduces the heart’s ability to create “energy molecules.” It also increases the blood clotting activity of cells, which could block blood flow and damages arteries by promoting the formation of atherosclerotic lesions and hardened arteries
Smoke-filled air contains cadmium, known to cause all sorts of havoc in the body. Russian researchers found that cadmium, along with other heavy metals, takes part in the activation of blood clotting.
Cadmium is also suspected of contributing to high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.
ANTI CANCER Chlorella contains beta-carotene, which has been shown to destroy cancer cells.
It also provides antioxidant vitamins C and E and selenium.
Chlorella contains a range of carotenoids that is superior merely to taking a supplement of synthetic beta carotene
Chlorella increases levels of inteferon, one of the body’s greatest natural cancer defences, which in turn stimulates the activity of T-cells and macrophages, thus enhancing the immune system’s ability to combat bacteria, viruses, chemicals and foreign proteins
Chlorella stimulates Interferon, our body’s natural defense against cancer due to its unique cell wall. Different from other sets “green” foods. Induces interferon production in the body, which is important to immune function.
CGF improves resistance to abdominal tumors while increasing the number of immune cells in the abdominal cavity.
Chlorella Increases T-Cells and B-Cells lymphocytes. Chlorella improves fatigue often associated with chemotherapy. White blood cell count is often improved.
ANTI AGING Chlorella is packed with the most potent combination of purely natural nutrients to detoxify your cells and rejuvenate your body to help you look and feel younger.
Dr Benjamin Frank, author of The No-Aging Diet, suggests that human RNA/DNA production slows down progressively as people age, resulting in lower levels of vitality and increased vulnerability to various diseases. Chlorella contains 3% RNA (ribonucleic acid) and 0.3% DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), making it one of the highest known food substances in nucleic acids.
WEIGHT MANAGEMENT When the functions of the body are balanced, and the processes of assimilation and elimination are working correctly, the body will naturally revert to its ideal weight.
In many people this lack of nutrition results in cravings for more food, which can lead to overeating. Chlorella provides a whole range of essential nutrients.
Sluggish digestion is often one of the contributing causes of unwanted weight gain and obesity.
Chlorella is an effective addition to any weight-loss program because it stimulates peristalsis in the intestines. Chlorella’s ingredients also improve the entire digestive process.
BETTER EYESIGHT Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss for people over the age of fifty-five. Previously, AMD was accepted as an inevitable part of aging. Research now indicates that age-related vision problems such as macular degeneration are linked to nutritional deficiencies.
Harvard researchers found that people with the highest consumption of lutein- and zeaxanthin-rich* foods lowered their risk of macular degeneration by as much as 57%, compared to people who consumed the least amount of these foods.
Chlorella is a good source lutein, lutein and zeaxanthin, alpha-carotene, gamma-carotene, xanthin and lycopene, etc
HOW TO TAKE For general health maintenance, a daily dose of 3 – 4 grams (15 – 20 tablets of 200 mg each).
The dosage should be increased to 5 – 6 grams (25 – 30 tablets of 200 mg each) for relieve of actual health symptoms.
Chlorella is best taken about half an hour before meals for optimum digestion.
