    1. 1. The Natural Alternative
    2. 2. Cancer Today...Cancer today is found in many humans and is being treated in multiple ways. Surgery Chemotherapy RadiationSide affects of these medical aids result in: Headaches, vomiting, body aches/pains, lack of energy, loss of hair, etc.
    3. 3. Our ProposalA 100% natural solution to prevent and eliminate cancer No toxins and no radiationCreating a biological pill made of super foods and herbal spices Packed with fruit and vegetables antioxidants and natural healing remedies
    4. 4. What We Deal With... The fight to cure cancer has been ongoing for years And yet no true solutions have been foundOn a daily basis the human body is exposed to outside influencesA large number of cancer causing agents get overlooked
    5. 5. Antioxidants RoleWhat exactly are antioxidants? What do they do? They are the hero’s that protect DNA from carcinogens Turning free radicals to a stable electron configurationExample of a free radical: Oxygen losing or gaining an electron from the interaction with another atom or molecule present in the body When the electron transfer happens, oxygen is transformed into a free radical and becomes highly reactive which causes the oxygen to seek an atom or molecule to transfer electrons to for oxygen to return to a stable electron configuration.
    6. 6. Broccoli Before DessertSulforaphane is derived from hydrolysis of glucoraphanin in broccoli and other cruciferousvegetables Shown to induce phase II detoxification Inhibit chemically induced mammary tumors in rodants To induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in colon cancer cellsIndole-3-carbinol found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables Shown to restrain elastase Has declined the survival rate of breast cancer
    7. 7. An Apple a DayContain powerful substances that help aid in inhibitingbreast cancer before formation beginsSix studies done at Cornell University resulted in the beliefthat special phytochemicals blocked the cancerous cellsApples are high in phenols and flavonoids Protect cells from mutating
    8. 8. A Cancer Un-FiestaAvocados are rich with anti-carcinogeniccompounds that help prevent cancer andhelp stop existing cancerous cellsCancer fighting compounds are found in the meat, not the skin of theavocadoAvocados differ in their nutrient facts based upon their geologicalgrowthRich in carotenoids which are antioxidants that humans can notproduce themselves
    9. 9. Lycopene in WatermelonLycopene is contained within Watermelonalong with several other antioxidants Potent anti-cancer fighting benefitsLike Avocados, Watermelon differs in it’s lycopene content indifferent climatesRecent research has shown that women with higher levels oflycopene have 40-50% reduction in developing breast cancer
    10. 10. The “Spice Superstar”Turmeric contains Curcumin, a phytonutrient, within it’s rootsThis “Anti-Cancer Spice” has the ability to: Inhibit activation of cancer genes Inhibit spreading of cancerous cells Kill or shrink tumors
    11. 11. The “Stinking Rose”Garlic is such a powerful antioxidantdue to it’s strong odor The smell comes from it’s active nutrient - AllicinProperties help fight cancer by stopping DNA from beingdamagedEsophageal and stomach cancer is reduced in those who eat
    12. 12. Lemons and GrassCommonly used for it’s fragrance, Lemongrass also hascancer fighting benefitsDrinking it as a tea has beenproven to kill human cancer cellsStudies in China and India haveshown it to fight against skin and colon cancer, as well asDNA damaging ionizing radiation
    13. 13. The “Super-Sized” AntioxidantRosemary is not only an antioxidant, butalso a anti-inflammatory, antiviral,antimicrobial, and anti-allergenA combination of rosmarinic acid, carnosic acid, and carnosolmake it one of the most powerful antioxidantsTests have shown suppression of cancerous tumors in skincancer when rosmarinic acid is present
    14. 14. What We Need...As you can see, Broccoli, Apples, Avocados, Watermelon, Turmeric,Garlic, Lemongrass, and Rosemary all have something in common:anti-cancer propertiesRequesting a grant for $1.5 million dollarsPut these anti-cancer properties from these foods to test anddiscover a natural-fighting cancer alternativeTesting will be done on cancer and non-cancer patients of bothgenders and all ages
    15. 15. Our AccomplishmentWe hope to bring relief to the families and individuals whoare suffering through this battle of cancerGoal is to revolutionize the way doctors and patients fightcancer today
