You know that just thinking about the word “cancer” scares the day lights out of me…
Really it does….there are so many different forms of cancer any many that are really common such as non-melanoma skin cancer which is the most common type of cancer in us humans.
What is really staggering is the number of cases that are affected by this deadly disease as there are over one million brand new cases of this cancer occurring every year just only in the United States and about 2,000 deaths. It is said that non-melanoma skin cancer rarely metastasizes or rarely leads to a lethal outcome. Catching it at an early stage is very important.
By contrast, malignant melanoma is less common but it is one of the deadliest cancers.
I always try to think of the bright side by doing whatever possible to prevent such a deadly decease but then again do we know for sure that those preventative measures really truly help?…whether it does or not it’s better than nothing at all!
Again, there are so many different types of cancers so let just look at what Green Tea can do for us…
Research has shown green tea to be effective at preventing ovarian cancer.
A study in Sweden reported that women who consumed green tea showed a significantly lower risk of developing ovarian cancer, and that the risk decreased as their tea consumption increased.
And, green tea has been shown to prevent cancers of the digestive system.
One study concluded that the women who were regular tea drinkers had a significantly lower risk of biliary tract cancer and gallbladder cancer than those who did not drink green tea.
So perhaps stocking up on a good quality green tea may not be a bad idea after all to prolong your overall WellBeing….
As a parent and spouse, you try to ensure your family is healthy and happy, and you do everything within your power to keep them safe. It doesn’t cross your mind that the products that you are using to keep them safe may actually be placing them in harm’s way.
The truth is that there are a number of known carcinogens in our homes lurking in the shower, the toilet, the kitchen cupboard, and the rest of the house that have the potential to substantially increase the risk of you or your family developing cancer.
According to a report published by the Natural Resources Defense Council, many of the air-fresheners we use in our homes on a regular basis contain compounds with carcinogenic potential. The vast majority of air-fresheners, even some marked “all-natural” or “unscented,” contain compounds called phthalates.
Homemade air fresheners are one of the simplest products to make. Distilled water and a few drops of your favorite essential oils in a spritz bottle is all you need to keep your home smelling great. Shake well before each use and mist the spray around your home whenever you want to freshen the air. Or you can use it in an aromatherapy diffuser.
The other possibly dangerous and toxic product in your home could be hidden within your favorite scented candles. We all know that lead can be dangerous and lead poisoning can be disastrous for health, but when you see descriptions like essential oil and aromatherapy, you automatically assume that these products are healthy.
