Vitamin C tricks cancer cells into thinking that it is sugar and cancer cells suck up the vitamin C resulting in the
destruction of the tumor from the inside.

Lifestyle: What child doesn’t put everything into its mouth? This is because tactile function for the infant is mostly
in the lips and tongue until the development matures. But putting non-food items in their mouths is a behavior that
occasionally leads to the accidental swallowing of some foreign objects like metallic toys, low-cost jewelry, coins and
other treasures. Even just gumming these items in their mouths can bring toxic levels of lead and cadmium and other
metals into their bodies. A recent study examined toxic metals in 72 random metal toys and child jewelry items.
Cadmium and lead weren’t the only toxic metals that came loose with some spit-juice digestive fluid. Copper, nickel,
arsenic and antimony were also found in some samples. Exposure to these metals can bring abdominal pain,
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and can have irreversible effects on a child's neurodevelopment and intellectual
Food and Nutrition: Pregnant women who eat lots of fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of god water have
a significantly reduced risk of preterm delivery. Due in part to today’s processed food and fast food diet, childbirth
delivery before 37 weeks of pregnancy are accomplished, accounts for almost 75% of all newborn deaths and is
associated with significant bad health problems. Many studies show that a mother's dietary habits directly affect the
unborn child. Analyzing some 66,000 births, a recent study found 5.3% of them were preterm births. The study team
also determined that a high fruit and vegetable diet significantly reduced preterm as well as late term delivery risks.

Medical Madness: Breast cancer chemo survivors often have fatigue, pain and other debilitating symptoms
that persist for months and sometimes years after treatment has ended. This is because chemotherapy leaves
behind epigenetic damage to the survivor’s blood and other cells. This damage is associated with inflammation
months after the treatment and brings with it pain and fatigue - just like the achy, tired feeling that comes with the
inflammation during a bout of the flu. This post-treatment achy, tired feeling is also caused by inflammation from the
chemo damage but unlike the flu inflammation, this stuff doesn’t just go away. The journal Brain, Behavior and
Immunity calls this the “cost of cancer treatment”.
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: Apricot seeds from the fruit apricot have a concentration of
“vitamin B17” amygdalin. Amygdalin is simply a plant substance and really isn’t a vitamin at all. Amygdalin is best
known for its cancer-fighting abilities and is also known to alleviate arthritis pain and lower blood pressure. Back in
the 50s, scientists made a chemically modified drug out of amygdalin called Laetrile. This version of amygdalin
failed to perform as a cancer drug in 91% of users - but even this beats the lousy 2.1% survival rate offered by
chemo. One concern from apricot seeds is the amount of cyanide in them. However, a 140-pound woman might
experience cyanide poisoning from 65 apricot deeds a day and a 175-pound man would be at risk from 80 apricot
seeds. FYI, high levels of vitamin C increase the concentration of cyanide released in the body with amygdalin.
Daily HealthTrivia: Stress relief trivia: Banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories an hour (and it
feels so good when you stop).
The First Rule of Happiness: If you want to know the value of one minute, ask the person who just
missed their bus.

Laugh About It! If it smells like a salad, tastes like a salad and even crunches like a salad, but looks like an
organic, gluten-free vegan chocolate cookie, it’s an organic gluten-free, vegan chocolate cookie…
