In this video abstract, CDC epidemiologist Dr. Hannah Weir talks about her work to predict the number of new cancer cases and deaths to the year 2020. Cancer rates are decreasing or stabilizing, but the number of cancer cases and deaths will only continue to increase. Dr. Weir discusses why we still have work to do to prevent, screen and treat cancers. Results of this work have been previously published in both Preventing Chronic Disease and Cancer.

Prostate Cancer Prevention - 7 Ways to Protect your prostate Naturally
 
03:40
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men in the United-States. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland behind the base of a man’s penis and below the urinary bladder. Its function is to make seminal fluid, which is the liquid in semen that protects, supports, and helps transport sperm. In this video will talk about some of the natural ways to reduce your risk of prostate-cancer. 1.Learn about personal risk factors. Some of the major personal risk factors for prostate cancer are age and family history. The risk of prostate cancer increases the older you get. Although approximately 75% of the cases of prostate-cancer have no pattern or order, about 20% of those with prostate-cancer have had cases of the disease in their family previously. More than 80% of prostate-cancers are diagnosed in men over the age of 65. 2.Exercise regularly. One great way to possibly reduce the risk of prostate-cancer is to exercise. Some studies even indicate that your risk of cancer decreases further the more vigorous you exercise. You should do aerobic-exercise at least 30 minutes per day for 5-6 days out of the week. 3.Have sex more often. Another way that you can reduce your risk of prostate-cancer is to have more sex. According to an Australian study, if you masturbate 3 or more times per week, you are 34% less likely to develop prostate-cancer by age 70. Along the same lines, sex also counts toward the total number of weekly ejaculations. • The finding could be explained by the flushing out of cancer-causing agents during ejaculation 3.Reduce the amount of fat you eat. You can reduce your risk of prostate-cancer by making dietary changes. In order to help lower your chance of getting prostate-cancer, you should eat a diet that is low in fat. According to numerous studies, there is an established link between a diet high in saturated-fat and the development of prostate-cancer. • In general, fats should not exceed 30% of total daily-caloric intake 4.Increase your soy intake. Increasing the consumption of soy products is another dietary option to consider to reduce the risk of prostate-cancer. Soy products contain isoflavones, which are natural compounds that act like estrogens. In laboratory tests, they have been proven to inhibit the growth of prostate-cancer cells. • Try to incorporate soy products such as soymilk, tempeh, miso, and tofu into your diet. 5.Brew green tea. Drinking green-tea may also reduce the risk of prostate-cancer. Brewed green-tea contains high levels of polyphenol compounds, particularly catechins, that may be protective against prostate-cancer. Try to brew yourself a cup with breakfast or lunch to help lower your risk of cancer 6.Increase natural vitamins and minerals. There are some supplements that will naturally help you fight prostate-cancer. Naturally occurring folate, a B vitamin, has been shown to reduce the risk of prostate-cancer. You should not take folic-acid, which is a synthetic form of folate, because it has been found to increase the risk of prostate-cancer.

Michio Kaku: How to Reverse Aging
 
04:38
Don't miss new Big Think videos! Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Enzymes like Telomerase and Resveratrol, though not the Fountain of Youth unto themselves, offer tantalizing clues to how we might someday soon unravel the aging process. Question: Do you think the enzyme Telomerase could be used to reverse the aging process in our lifetime? (Submitted by Paul Cellura) Michio Kaku: Paul, Telomerase hit the headlines; however, I think we have to put it into perspective. It is not the fountain of youth; however, it is a significant breakthrough. We have to put it into a much larger perspective. First of all, we know that DNA is sort of like a shoelace. It has plastic tips at the end. Every time a cell reproduces, the tips get shorter and shorter and shorter until finally they fray. And you know that your shoelace, without the plastic tips will simply fall apart. That's what happens inside a cell. A cell, for example, your skin cell, will divide about 60 times, that's called a Hayflick Limit. Then the cell goes into senescence and eventually dies. So in some sense, every cell has a biological clock. It is doomed to die after about 60 reproductions. However, Telomerase can eliminate some of the contraction of the chromosomes and the chromosomes can maintain their length. So at first you may say, "ah-ha! We can now defeat the biological clock." But not so fast, first of all, cancer cells also use Telomerase. Cancer cells are immortal. Cancer cells are immortal and that's precisely why they kill you. Why are cancer cells so dangerous? Because they are immortal. They grow and they grow and they grow until they take over huge chunks of your body, meaning that your bodily functions cannot be performed and you die. So we have to make sure that when you hit ordinary cells with Telomerase that you don't also trigger cancer in the process. Now, also you have to realize that genes are also very essential for the aging process. It turns out that we know what aging is. Aging is the buildup of error. That's all aging is. The build up of genetic and cellular error. And cells begin to age; they begin to get sluggish because genetic mistakes start to build up. Now cells; however, have a repair mechanism. They can repair damage to their cells; otherwise we would all basically rot very soon after birth. However, even the repair mechanisms eventually get gummed up and then the cell really starts to get old as a consequence. So then the question is, can you accelerate cell repair? That is another branch of gerontology which is being looked at using genes and using chemicals to accelerate the repair mechanisms. For example, if I take any organism on the planet Earth from yeast cells to spiders, insects, rabbits, dogs, and even monkeys now. And I reduce their caloric intake by 30%, they live 30% longer. In fact the only organism which has not yet been deliberately tested by scientists are homo sapiens. All the other species obey this basic rule. You starve them to death, they live longer. This is independent of Telomerase. This is a function of the wear and tear that we have on the cells. And this is the only known way of actually deliberately extending the lifespan of any organisms almost at will. Now, what we want is a genetic way of mimicking this mechanism without having to starve yourself because how many people do you know would be willing to starve themselves in order to live 30% longer? Not too many. So then the question is, are there genes that control this process. And the answer is apparently, yes. There's something called the Sirtuin genes, Sir2 being the most prominent of them. They in turn stimulate certain enzymes, among them Resveratrol, which is found in red wine, for example. So this does not mean that drinking red wine or taking Telomerase is the fountain of youth. I don't think that anyone has the fountain of youth yet. What I am saying is, we are now finding pieces of the fountain of youth, tantalizing clues that mean that perhaps in the coming decades, we might be able to actually unravel the aging process. We don't have it yet. Don't go out to the drug store and stock up on these kinds of chemicals and enzymes thinking you're going to live forever. However it is conceivable that in the coming decades we'll come very close to finding it.

50% OF ALL COLON CANCER CASES COULD BE PREVENTED IF EVERYBODY DID THESE 9 THINGS! Natural Remedies
 
04:09
50% OF ALL COLON CANCER CASES COULD BE PREVENTED IF EVERYBODY DID THESE 9 THINGS! Natural Remedies Colon cancer is very common health condition in nowadays that is caused because of the consumption of the processed meat, as it causes colorectal cancer in humans. Colorectal cancer, which includes colon and rectum cancers, is the third most common cancer diagnosed recently. Many Cases of Colon Cancer Are Preventable According to the researchers, up to 35 percent of cancer-related deaths may be due to diet, 30 percent due to tobacco, 20 percent due to infections and the rest due to other environmental factors. The good news is that colorectal cancer can be prevented via following lifestyle factors up to 50 percent. Eat More Vegetables and Some Fruits They are rich in antioxidants and other disease-fighting compounds, such as magnesium, which decreased the risk of the colorectal tumor by 13 percent. Anti-cancer effects of eating vegetables and fruits may be related to the ability to reduce insulin resistance, which may positively affect the development of tumors. Eat More Fiber Dietary fiber has been put on the list of the most effective compounds that reduce the risk of colorectal cancer (e.g. colorectal adenoma and distal colon cancer). Nutritionists say that every 10 grams of fiber you add to your daily diet decrease your risk of colon cancer by 10 percent. Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels Lack of the vitamin D is a risk factor for colorectal cancer because the vitamin D is beneficial for your immune system, which in turn may help you to limit the growth of cancerous tumors. According to the researchers the regular sun exposure, use of a high-quality tanning bed and/or supplementation with a vitamin D3 supplement can be great sources of getting your vitamin D levels into the optimal range of 50-70 ng/ml. Avoid Processed Meats Processed meats (bacon, ham, salami, pastrami, hot dogs, pepperoni, some sausages, and hamburgers) are those preserved by smoking, salting, curing, or the addition of chemical preservatives. Be Knowledgeable About Red Meat Consumption The studies showed that people who eat the reddest meat have a 24 percent greater risk of colorectal cancer than those who eat less, because of its way of cooking. Red meat cooked at high temperatures (fried and barbecued) may also contain carcinogenic cooking byproducts like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and heterocyclic amines. Exercise The regular exercise can significantly reduce your risk of colon cancer up to 40 percent compared with inactive persons, for instance. Exercise helps you to improve circulation of immune cells in your blood. The job of these cells is to neutralize pathogens throughout your body and to destroy precancerous cells before they become cancerous. Maintain a Healthy Weight and Control Belly Fat Researchers have linked obesity to an increased risk for about a dozen different cancers. In the case of the overweight or obese people, even small amounts of weight loss can lead to significant benefits for their health, especially losing excess belly fat. Limit Your Alcohol Intake and Quit Smoking Excessive intake of alcohol and smoking are increasing the risk of colorectal cancer. The experts define as the “moderate” alcohol intake of a 5-ounce glass of wine, 1 ounce of hard liquor and a 12-ounce beer with a meal, per day. Smoking is an established risk factor for colorectal cancer because it is a heterogeneous process. Eat Garlic Garlic has a proven ability to kill cancer cells and lowers the risk of colon cancer up to a 35 percent. Consuming high amounts of raw garlic also appear to have a lower risk of colorectal and stomach cancers. Should You Have Routine Colonoscopies Starting at 50?

Testosterone decreases risk of death by 56% in VA study
 
03:12
A 15 year study of over 83,000 men with low testosterone shows that men treated with testosterone were 56% more likely to be ALIVE as compared to men who were not treated, or received sub-therapeutic doses. The men treated had 24% less heart attacks and 36% less strokes. This is consistent with multiple previous studies, and directly contradicts the recent smaller VA study that showed an increase in heart attack and stroke in men treated with testosterone who had a preexisting diagnosis of heart disease. The previous study was poorly done, in fact over 40% of the men who were given testosterone NEVER had a followup blood test, and no consideration for weather those treated actually achieved therapeutic blood levels. This most recent study flies in the face of the FDA who recently made a position statement that men with low T should not take therapy if the cause of their low T was because of age related reduction in testosterone. Based on this most recent study, the FDA position could be responsible for hundreds of thousands of premature deaths based on the large numbers of older men with low T in the US. http://eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2015/07/27/eurheartj.ehv346

The Future of Cancer Screening: Public Health Approaches
 
01:01:42
Cancer is the second-leading cause of death among Americans and takes a toll on communities across the United States. One of the effective ways to reduce our nation's burden from cancer is to ensure that high quality screening services are available and accessible to all Americans. Screening for cervical, colorectal, and breast cancers is supported by sound scientific evidence, and helps find these diseases early when they are easiest to treat. This session of Grand Rounds explored new ways that public health can increase the rate of evidence-based cancer screening, and decrease disparities in screening rates. Viewers learned about the effectiveness of screening, successful organized cancer screening programs in the United States and abroad, and opportunities with the Affordable Care Act. The session concluded with future directions for CDC and the nation's public health system to improve cancer screening.

Why Screen for Oral Cancer?
 
04:11
http://www.pvsmiles.com - 480-991-2290 Deaths from oral cancer are higher than from cervical, testicular, laryngeal or thyroid cancer. Oral Cancer is the 6th, most common cancer in the US and is more prevalent than skin cancer and 3x more prevalent than cervical cancer. In America, one person dies from oral cancer every hour of every day. This is the fifth year in a row in which there has been an increase in the rate of occurrence of oral cancers, in 2007 there was a major jump of over 11% in that single year. Oral cancer is one of the few forms of cancer that has not experienced a significantly decreased mortality rate in the past 30 years. Approximately 40,000 people in the US will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer in 2012. This includes those cancers that occur in the mouth itself, in the very back of the mouth/oropharynx, and on the exterior lip of the mouth. Worldwide the problem is far greater, with new cases annually exceeding 640,000. Clinical data suggests that many are contracting the disease not due to tobacco or/and alcohol use, but due to HPV or other causes. Moreover, the majority of oral cancers are detected in late stages, for which the 5-year survival rate is barely over 20%. As a result, health experts are now advising all adults to have oral cancer examinations on an annual basis. We are pleased to announce that our dental practice, http://www.PVsmiles.com has enhanced our ability to detect oral cancer at early stages, as well as to detect abnormal tissue at pre-cancerous stages with the use of a revolutionary technology, the VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening System, which we are now using adjunctively to our conventional white light oral cancer examination. The VELscope is the only device cleared by the FDA for its ability to help detect lesions that may not be visible under traditional white light examinations, including pre-cancerous and cancerous growths. Thus the key is early detection, find problems before they can be seen with the traditional, palpation and visual white light examination. Oral cancer cases that were detected early have a 5 year survival rate of 85%. To learn more contact us at http://www.pvsmiles.com - or call us at 480-991-2290.
Cancer Claims 20% Less Lives Than Two Decades Ago
 
01:07
On average, 20 percent fewer people die from cancer as did 20 years ago. On average, 20 percent fewer people die from cancer in the US as did 20 years ago. However, those statistics are greater amongst some groups, while lower in others. Overall, the decline has been attributed to a decrease in smoking, earlier detection measures, and a better means of prevention. Lung cancer, which still claims the most lives, has experienced a 34 percent drop in resulting deaths the last couple of decades. The people who have experienced the biggest plunge in terminal cases are middle aged black men, who now succumb to cancer at only half the rate they used to. On the other end of the spectrum are elderly white women, who have not seen much of any decline in cancer-related deaths in the past 20 years. Cancers with the highest mortality rates after lung cancer, are prostate, breast, and colon cancers. The Cancer Statistics 2014 report was compiled by the American Cancer Society using data supplied by the CDC, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Center for Health Statistics. Said the CEO of the American Cancer Society, "The progress we are seeing is good, even remarkable, but we can and must do even better."

Combine These AMAZING FOODS to STOP CANCER, Oncologist Noticed! How to Fight Cancer with Foods?
 
13:57
Top 12 Cancer-Fighting Foods! Are You Eating Enough Cancer-Fighting Foods Every Day? Cancer is recognized worldwide to be a major health problem affecting millions of people each year. More than 1 million people in the United States alone get cancer each year, and as of 2009, a total of 562,340 deaths from cancer were projected to occur in the United States yearly. The main reason for such a high mortality rate from cancer is due to abnormal behaviors of certain cells, which usually results in cancer cell progression, tumor growth and metastasis. Many cancer survivors have been fortunate enough to use a combination of natural cancer treatments themselves at home, in conjunction with conventional medical treatments, in order to overcome their disease. This duel approach can help support the entire body and mind in the healing process that can sometimes be long and very difficult. Today, the early combination of chemotherapy and nutrition therapy is able to save the lives of thousands of cancer patients. Inflammation is the underlying issue that dictates cancerous tumor initiation, progression and growth. Studies suggest that 30 percent to 40 percent of all kinds of cancer can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle and dietary measures! And other sources claim that this number is in fact much higher, with around 75 percent of cancer cases being lifestyle-related. Practicing strategies that are fully within your own control — including things like eating a healing diet, vegetable juicing, consuming probiotic foods, taking immune-boosting supplements, busting stress and practicing healing prayer — can make you feel more empowered and hopeful when battling a disease, which goes a very long way in the healing process. Leafy Green Vegetables Leafy greens are the cornerstone of any healthy diet since they’re exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes, yet very low in calories, fats, sodium and other toxins. Leafy greens of all kinds — nutritious spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine, arugula salad, watercress, etc. — are rich in antioxidants known to combat cancer, including vitamin C and beta-carotene (a type of vitamin A). And the benefits keep coming; as natural sources of glucosinolates, they also contain antibacterial and antiviral properties, inactivate carcinogens, help reprogram cancer cells to die off, and prevent tumor formation and metastasis. These powerhouse chemicals are known to break down during the chewing and digestion process into biologically active compounds that prevent cancer cells growth, which are referred to as indoles, thiocyanates and isothiocyanates. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) found in leafy greens, which are made from glucosinolates, have been reported to help detox your body at the cellular level. Add a handful of leafy greens to your lunch and dinner to increase your nutrient intake; to make obtaining them simpler, try juicing vegetables for near perfect health. Vegetable juices are very easy to digest and make yourself at home. The Gerson diet meal plan even advises cancer patients to drink 13 glasses of freshly prepared juice daily! Cruciferous Vegetables Cruciferous vegetables are known to be powerful cancer killers and some of the best vitamin C foods widely available. Many are rich in glutathione, known as the body’s “master antioxidant” since it has high free-radical-scavenging abilities. Nearly all members of the brassica family of cruciferous vegetables are nutrient-dense sources of a family of phytochemicals called isothiocyanates that are linked to cancer prevention. In addition to isothiocyanates, cruciferous veggies like cabbage and broccoli also contain sulforaphanes and indoles — two types of strong antioxidants and stimulators of detoxifying enzymes that protect the structure of DNA. Add one or two kinds — including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage or Brussels sprouts — to three mostly plant-based meals daily in the form of roasted veggies, soups or stir fries, or dip them into hummus or Greek yogurt for a healthy, fast snack. Additionally, many other vegetables are beneficial for lowering cancer risk, including onions, zucchini, asparagus, artichokes, peppers, carrots and beets. 3. Berries The ORAC scores of nearly all berries are very high, making them some of the top high-antioxidant foods in the world. Blueberries, raspberries, cherries, strawberries, goji berries, camu camu and blackberries are easy to find and use in numerous types of recipes — which is good news considering they supply vitamin C, vitamin A and gallic acid, a powerful antifungal/antiviral agent that increases immunity. Berries are especially rich in proanthocyanidin antioxidants, which have been observed to have anti-aging properties in several animal studies and are capable of lowering free radical damage. High amounts of phenols, zeaxanthin, lycopene, cryptoxanthin, lutein and polysaccharides are other berry benefits. Less familiar “superfoods” mulberry,...

Daniel Irimia - Cells in Action Why Cancer Cells Leave the Tumors
 
01:08:55
Watch on LabRoots at: http://labroots.com/user/webinars/details/id/116 Invading cancer cells leave the tumor to form distant metastases and are ultimately responsible for 90% of deaths in cancer. Reducing the ability of cancer cells to invade and metastasize could extend the life of cancer patients. However, our current understanding of the conditions that trigger and guide the invasion of cancer cells is insufficient and our abilities to interfere with these processes are limited. By using novel microfluidic tools, we uncovered an unexpected ability of cancer cells to navigate and exit microscopic mazes along the shortest path. To explain this behavior, we propose a novel mechanism that guides cancer cell migration. This mechanism depends on the generation of spatial chemical gradients by the cancer cell themselves, through the competition between epidermal growth factor (EGF) uptake by the cells and the restricted diffusion of EGF from surrounding microenvironment to the cells. Employing this strategy when placed in uniform but confined environments, cancer cells can self-generate spatial gradients of EGF, effectively mapping the environment, and guiding their own escape from the confinement. Better understanding of the cancer cell guidance strategy by self-generated gradients could lead to approaches for restricting the migration of malignant cells to delay local invasion and distant metastases. Learning objectives: - Identify the environment settings that trigger self-guided cell migration; - Recognize the conditions that favor cancer cell invasion; - Predict the patterns of cancer cell migration in various conditions of confinement; - Suggest interventions that may perturb the self-guidance of cancer cells.

Gynecological Cancers Often Picked Up Later
 
01:45
It's well established that the Pap test provides early detection, which dramatically decreases cervical cancer deaths. "The Pap test is designed for one thing and that's to detect pre-malignant or malignant abnormality of the cervix, period. So if a woman has a negative Pap test, she cannot assume that she doesn't have uterine cancer, she cannot assume she doesn't have ovarian cancer, she cannot assume she doesn't have vaginal cancer," says Dr. Jimmy Orr, a gynecologic oncologist with Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. Therein lays the problem. Almost half of the 78,000 women each year who diagnosed with a cancer of the reproductive system are detected in later stages. "Three out of four women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer have stage 3 or 4 disease. One can have a small tumor that grows for a prolonged period of time shedding cells allowing it to develop," says Dr. Orr. Among women, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death. If caught early enough, there are effective treatments. The trick is finding it. "I think oftentimes we forget about the most important thing and that's a physical examination, a good pelvic examination. Exams and specific imaging studies can be helpful for ovarian and tubule disease. A biopsy of the lining of the uterus can be very important for women who have uterine cancer," says Dr. Orr. Women themselves may notice subtle symptoms. "Bloating, gassiness, dyspepsia or acid reflux. All of these are signs, and then there are a whole other group of women who may have a high risk who have a family history of ovarian or a strong history of breast cancer," says Dr. Orr. In the future, there could be more magic markers, like the Pap test. Until then, women should be their own health advocates. "And if something's not right, they need to come forward and not be afraid to tell someone," says Dr. Orr.

Death By Doctors - Why Doctors Are The Third Leading Cause Of Death
 
16:23
Discover why doctors are the third leading cause of mortality in the United States and what you can do to avoid them. Learn why doctors commit suicide and the kickbacks they receive from Big Pharma. Download this cheat sheet to learn 9 things you can do to prevent cancer. http://bit.ly/2mvvek6 Death By Doctors 250,000 deaths per year are due to medical error in the U.S. That are more deaths than respiratory diseases, which kills close to 150,000 people per year.Other studies report much higher figures, as much as 440,000 deaths per year. Medical errors are not part of national health statistics. Each year people die because of medical errors in hospitals. Many of these errors are avoidable. Common medical errors include: Prescription errors Surgical errors A wrong diagnosis Faulty medical tools Patient neglect Why Doctors Kill Drug companies control the doctors and the medical system. Doctors know nothing about nutrition or prevention. They get less than 20 hours of nutritional education during the 7 years they become doctors. A whole food, plant-based diet can reverse many diseases. Doctors could have prevented these diseases if they taught their patients how to eat right. Hospitals serve junk food. Their food is high in sugar, unhealthy fats, salt, and meat. They buy high volumes of food at a low cost to save money. Often, this means serving packaged and processed foods in favor of fresh produce. Medical Errors And Patient Safety Doctors know nothing about prevention or why diseases occur. They treat only the symptoms of these diseases and not the underlying cause. Big Pharma doesn’t want the doctors to heal diseases. They make more money when patients take their drugs for the rest of their lives. Hospitals use toxic drugs and treatments even if they yield horrible results. The only reason we use it is because of the incredible profit it yields drug companies When doctors go on strike, the scientific research finds that patients stop dying. The mortality either stays the same or decrease, during medical strikes. Most doctors are nothing more than legalized drug dealers for Big Pharma. Physician Suicide Doctors spend three to seven years at an established teaching hospital.In America they expect them to work up to 80 hours a week. Some single shifts can last up to 28 hours. Primary care is more like an assembly-line-like system. The high cost of running a hospital forces doctors to treat as many patients as possible. Therefore hospitals lobby for longer hours even at the expense of the patient's safety. Physicians and nurses who work longer hours tend to make more medical mistakes. Around half of all doctors spend less than 16 minutes with each patient.Doctors get punished or fired if they are not productive enough. Because of the horrible working conditions, the suicide rate of doctors is the highest of any profession.Doctor suicide is 28 to 40 per 100,000, which is more than twice that of the general population. Things that make them them commit suicide include: The death of a patient Academic distress Inhumane working conditions Bullying and sleep deprivation Fear of harming a patient. Fear of being judged by others Doctor Gifts Doctors get kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies early on in their carriers. Big Pharma gives doctors gifts like a free lunch or invitations to workshops. Doctors that get these bribes often prescribe the drug company's drug. You can see the gifts doctors receive from drug companies on https://openpaymentsdata.cms.gov/ How To Fire Your Doctor The best way to treat diseases is the holistic approach. In holistic medicine, you try to find out the underlying cause of the disease. Your body can heal itself. If you cut your hand, it will heal the wound. It will reverse diseases if you change your diet and give it what it needs. Your body will rebuild itself unless you keep up with your unhealthy habits. When we eat and live wrong, we'll stay sick and become dependent on pharmaceutical companies. Things you should do to prevent diseases include: Changing your diet Getting enough sunshine Fixing your emotional wounds Exercising Detoxifying your body Drinking enough water Getting enough sleep Only you can heal yourself, not doctors or drug companies. When you visit a doctor, you're stuck in the spiral of pharmaceutical dependency. The only way to escape this trap is to change your diet and lifestyle.

Health Benefits of Turmeric - Decreased Cancer Risk
 
02:04
Turmeric in regular manner is a ‘preventive’ measure and prevention is always better than cure. Of course, using turmeric regularly will also help in several existing health problems. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT CURCUMIN COMBATS CANCERS OF THE BREAST, PROSTATE, LIVER, COLON, LUNG, PANCREAS etc. IT WAS ALSO FOUND THAT CURCUMIN ACTUALLY STOPS CANCER CELLS FROM DIVIDING. ****************************************************************** ****************************************************************** Daily diet recipes:- ****************************************************************** Recipes for Turmeric Milk A ½ to 1 inch piece of turmeric is heated for up to 15 minutes along with 8 ounces of milk until the milk is almost boiling. Strain out the turmeric and drink this milk after allowing it to cool for a few minutes. This recipe can soothe inflammation, diarrhea (use non-fat milk), strengthen bones and fight free radicals. ****************************************************************** ****************************************************************** Recipe for Turmeric Tea Take four cups of water and bring it to the boil. Add 1 teaspoon turmeric. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for at least 10 minutes. Strain this using a fine sieve. Add lemon or for taste. As a variation, a teaspoon of ginger can be added to the turmeric tea. Good quality turmeric powder must be used for this recipe. However, grating fresh turmeric root each time you brew your tea can provide a richer flavor. Since the health benefits of turmeric are widely known, turmeric root is available in most grocery stores worldwide. ****************************************************************** ****************************************************************** Recipe for Turmeric Rice This tasty and healthy dish comes from southern parts of India. What all is needed? Here is the list of key ingredients for Turmeric rice: • 4 cups cooked white basmati rice / brown basmati rice (basmati rice is the best rice for lemon rice) • 3 tbsp vegetable oil (any oil of your preference would do) • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice • 1 tsp mustard seeds • 6 green cardamom pods, split • 1⁄2 tsp ground turmeric • 2 dried hot red chills, cut lengthwise • Finely chopped pieces of ginger (based on your taste) • Garlic and clove – choose quantity based on your taste • 10 fresh or dried curry leaves (we use curry leaves a lot for taste and garnishing, use them if you find them good) • Garnishing of choice – Coriander, dry fruits, etc. How to cook Turmeric rice Cooking of Turmeric rice is not time consuming. It just takes 15-20 min. Step one is to heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and put all spices. Cook till you can very well smell the aroma of the spices. Typically it will take 3-4 minutes. Then put lemon juice and cook for 1 minute and then add rice. Important part is to keep stirring the mixture so that spices blend well with rice. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Your Turmeric rice is ready! Add garnishing of choice. The quantity is sufficient to serve 4 people. ****************************************************************** ****************************************************************** Also, as turmeric is absorbed poorly in body, it is best to include black pepper in diet to enhance its benefits. ****************************************************************** Music: Song title - Bensound.com ***********************************
Susan G Komen Race For The Cure Philadelphia 2018

This is the obvious and simplest reason for our community to participate in this Race for the Cure. But, sadly, not everybody realizes this. Sadly, more and more people act on the misconception that breast cancer is “well in hand” and that “the breast cancer cause has all the support it needs.” Certainly, we have achieved great things in the breast cancer movement. Since Susan G. Komen began its groundbreaking work in the 1980s, the number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. has decreased by 39 percent. But the reality remains, this year in the U.S. alone, approximately 40,000 people will die of breast cancer. 40,000 deaths. In a single year. In a single country.

My Experience With Hepatitis C
 
18:16
Back in the summer of 2012, I attempted to donate blood at the Red Cross, but my blood was rejected because I tested positive for The Hep C virus. It came as a shock to me because I had no symptoms and was otherwise in excellent health. In this video I talk about my experience with the disease and the treatment I got. http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs164/en/ Key facts Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus: the virus can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis infection, ranging in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness. The hepatitis C virus is a bloodborne virus and the most common modes of infection are through unsafe injection practices; inadequate sterilization of medical equipment; and the transfusion of unscreened blood and blood products. 130–150 million people globally have chronic hepatitis C infection. A significant number of those who are chronically infected will develop liver cirrhosis or liver cancer. Approximately 500 000 people die each year from hepatitis C-related liver diseases1. Antiviral medicines can cure approximately 90% of persons with hepatitis C infection, thereby reducing the risk of death from liver cancer and cirrhosis, but access to diagnosis and treatment is low. There is currently no vaccine for hepatitis C; however research in this area is ongoing. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes both acute and chronic infection. Acute HCV infection is usually asymptomatic, and is only very rarely associated with life-threatening disease. About 15–45% of infected persons spontaneously clear the virus within 6 months of infection without any treatment. The remaining 55–85% of persons will develop chronic HCV infection. Of those with chronic HCV infection, the risk of cirrhosis of the liver is 15–30% within 20 years. Geographical distribution Hepatitis C is found worldwide. The most affected regions are Africa and Central and East Asia. Depending on the country, hepatitis C infection can be concentrated in certain populations (for example, among people who inject drugs); and/or in general populations. There are multiple strains (or genotypes) of the HCV virus and their distribution varies by region. Transmission The hepatitis C virus is a bloodborne virus. It is most commonly transmitted through: injecting drug use through the sharing of injection equipment; in health care settings due to the reuse or inadequate sterilization of medical equipment, especially syringes and needles; the transfusion of unscreened blood and blood products; HCV can also be transmitted sexually and can be passed from an infected mother to her baby; however these modes of transmission are much less common. Hepatitis C is not spread through breast milk, food or water or by casual contact such as hugging, kissing and sharing food or drinks with an infected person. Symptoms The incubation period for hepatitis C is 2 weeks to 6 months. Following initial infection, approximately 80% of people do not exhibit any symptoms. Those who are acutely symptomatic may exhibit fever, fatigue, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, grey-coloured faeces, joint pain and jaundice (yellowing of skin and the whites of the eyes).

If You Eat an Avocado a Day For a Month, Here's What Will Happen to You
 
09:20
What Will Happen to Your Body If You Eat Avocado Every Day. The avocado is a unique fruit with multiple nutritional and health benefits. How would your body respond if you ate just one avocado a day? In fact, it would transform your life as you’d get amazing results: your breath will be fresh at all times, your kidneys and liver will work more efficiently, your blood pressure will become lower, just to name a few. There's a miraculous mineral to be found in avocados: potassium. It helps your system keep a healthy fluid balance through chemical channels for cells and organs. Avocados are also a great source of vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is known for its involvement in the creation of collagen and elastin, which help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness. Vitamin E takes it to a whole new level, reducing the damage of excessive sun exposure and counteracting aging. TIMESTAMPS How to get fresh breath. 0:37 How to make your kidneys work more efficiently. 1:26 How to decrease your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. 2:20 How to make your liver function more efficiently. 3:16 How to lower your blood pressure. 4:13 How to improve your vision. 5:07 How to get extra protection from cancer. 6:03 How to lose weight easily. 6:52 How to make your skin glow. 7:49 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Avocado has antibacterial and antioxidant flavonoids, which kill bacteria in your mouth and make your breath fresh. -Potassium helps your system keep a healthy fluid balance through chemical channels for cells and organs. A good fluid balance allows your kidneys to function better. -Eating avocados regularly lowers the “bad” LDL cholesterol and blood triglycerides by up to 22% and increases the “good” HDL cholesterol by up to 11%. -This fruit is actually one of the best products for a liver-friendly diet, and that's all thanks to its ability to help your body produce glutathione! The liver desperately craves this antioxidant to filter out harmful substances and protect its cells from damage. -Potassium in avocados helps regulate the fluid balance benefits your blood pressure too. In this case, potassium prevents osteoporosis and, most importantly, lowers your blood pressure. -Avocados are high in antioxidants, especially carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect our eyes against harmful blue light. -The ability of avocados to give that extra bit of protection from cancer comes from the carotenoids and monounsaturated fat they contain, both of which make their own contribution to the impressive reduction of cancer. -Avocados are rich in fiber, which is essential for making those unwanted pounds disappear. Fiber is incredibly filling and digests slowly. -Thanks to vitamins C and E avocados help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness. Avocados are also rich in omega-9 fatty acids, and they’re crucial for maintaining moisture in the epidermis and regenerating epidermal cells.

He says that the key to success in cancer treatment lies in its early detection. His advice is never to ignore the ‘red flag signals’ sent by our body which could be any abnormal development – prolonged cough, abnormal bleeding, prolonged constipation or diarrhoea. These symptoms are emergency signals and a physician and specialist should be consulted immediately. Prevention should be a high priority for everyone, he advises. And preventive options such as PAP smear test can start as early as 18 years. But after the age of 50 years, he advises regular preventive tests such as mammography, colonoscopy and CT scans on an annual basis. On the question of emerging and new forms of treatment, Dr Bajpai elaborates on the new therapies that are an improvement on chemotherapy and which focus on targeted therapy and treatment by tablets and immunotherapy.

Can blueberry fight breast cancer?
 
01:30
In health news, a recent study found that blueberries may reduce the risk of having breast cancer. According to the research conducted in New Zealand, a 50-percent lower incidence rate of mammary tumors was detected after including blueberries to the animals’ diet. Blueberries contain phytochemicals called anthocyanins, an antioxidant that helps decrease the chance of developing breast cancer. They help reduce free radicals in our system, decrease new blood vessel formation, and increase the number of beneficial bacteria – all elements which help in the fight against breast cancer. But researchers stressed that the study was done in an animal trial and the response to environment stress of each animal differ. They can’t still say that eating blueberries will prevent breast cancer in humans. Breast cancer is the third most common type of cancer-related death case for both genders. Among Emirati females, breast cancer was the most commonly diagnosed cancer in 2013. Regular screenings is one way of reducing reduce cancer-related deaths. Mammogram, an X-ray of the breast, is the best screening tool used today to detect breast cancer. Aside from this, maintaining a healthy lifestyle like limiting alcohol, abstaining from smoking, and exercising regularly can go a long way towards reducing the risk of breast cancer.

WHO Says Alcohol Abuse a Leading Cause of Death, Disability
 
04:02
I'm Mario Ritter with the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The World Health Organization says alcohol abuse is the third leading cause of death and disability in the world. A new WHO report says the harmful use of alcohol kills two and one-half million people a year. And officials say action is needed to reduce the problem.The WHO released the "Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2011" in February. The report shows young people at risk. It says three hundred twenty thousand people between the ages of fifteen and twenty-nine die yearly from alcohol related causes. That is nine percent of all deaths in that age group.Shekhar Saxena is director of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse at the World Health Organization. He says alcohol is responsible for one-third of the deaths among young people in some parts of the world.He said the harmful effects of alcohol are increasing in developing countries, especially in Africa and Asia. These areas have fewer health services available.The World Health Organization report finds that six percent of all male deaths worldwide are related to alcohol. This is true in only one percent of female deaths. The report says one in five men die from alcohol related causes in the Russian Federation and neighboring countries. There are four main causes of alcohol related death. Injury, from car accidents or violence, is one. Diseases like cirrhosis of the liver, cancer, heart and blood system diseases are the others. The WHO report says alcohol abuse also adds to the development of two hundred other diseases. However, the majority of people in the world are not alcohol drinkers. The report says in two thousand five, almost half of men and two-thirds of women did not drink alcohol at all.Dr. Saxena says people who are dependent on alcohol live ten years less on average that those who do not have the problem. He says the majority of deaths are among people under the age of sixty.The WHO has a plan to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. It includes raising taxes on alcohol, reducing the number of places to buy alcohol and raising the drinking age. Officials say other measures include effective drunk driving laws and banning some alcohol advertising. For VOA Special English I'm Mario Ritter.
