Cancer Awareness powerpointPresentation Transcript
Things that wouldn’t hurt you to know
• TO BRING AWARENESS OF OBJECTS AND FOOD IN OUR EVERY DAY LIVES THAT HURTS AND HELPS WHEN IT COMES TO CANCER.
FOODVEGETABLES• BROCCOLI, CABBAGE, and CAULIFLOWER – have chemical compound called indole-3-carbinol that can combat breast cancer by converting a cancer-promoting estrogen. – especially sprouts, also have phytochemical sulforaphane, a product of glucoraphanin- believed to aid in preventing some types of cancer, like colon and rectal cancer. BroccoSprouts that have a consistent level of sulforaphane-as much as 20 times higher than the levels found in mature heads of broccoli.• CARROTS – Contain a lot of beta-carotene, may help reduce a wide range of cancers including lung, mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, bladder, prostate and breast. – SOME RESEARCH INDICATED BETA-CAROTENE MAY ACTUALLY CAUSE CANCER, BUT THIS HAS NOT PROVEN THAT EATING CARROTS, UNLESS IN VERY LARGE QUANTITIES (2-3 KILOS A DAY) CAN CAUSE CANCER. – Falcarinol that is found in carrots has been found to reduce the risk of cancer, according to Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences. Isolated cancer cell grow more slowly when exposed to falcarinol. This substance is a polyacethylen, however, so it is important not to cook the carrots!
FOOD (cont.)• KALE – has indoles, nitrogen compounds which may help stop the conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells in estrogen-sensitive tissues. – Isothiocyanates, phytochemicals found in Kale, are thought to suppress tumor growth and block cancer-causing substances from reaching their targets.• MUSHROOMS – Shiitake, maitake, reishi, Agaricus blazei Murill, and Coriolus Versicolor appear to help the body fight cancer and build the immune system. – Polysaccharides, especially Lentinan, powerful compounds that help in building immunity. – are a source of Beta Glucan. – have a protein called Lectin, which attacks cancerous cells and prevents them from multiplying.
FOOD (cont.)• SEAWEED – and other sea vegetables contain beta-carotene, protein, vitamin B 12, fiber and chlorophyll, as well as chlorophylones- important fatty acids that may help in the fight against breast cancer. – have high concentrations of the minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and iodine.FRUIT• AVOCADOS – Rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that attacks free radicals in the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats. – Supply more potassium than bananas – Strong source of beta-carotene. – Scientists believe that may also be useful in treating viral hepatitis (a cause of liver cancer) as well as other sources of liver damage.
FOOD (cont.)• FIG – have a derivative of benzaldehyde. – contain vitamins A and C, and calcium, magnesium and potassium, may curtail appetite and improve weight loss efforts – Institute of Physical and Chemical Research in Tokyo say benzaldehyde is highly effective at shrinking tumors.• GRAPEFRUITS – contain monoterpenes, believed to help prevent cancer by sweeping carcinogens out of the body. – studies show that may inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer cells in vitro. – contains vitamin C, beta-carotene, and folic acid• GRAPES – Red grapes contain bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants that work as cancer preventives.
Avoid COSMETICS containing • Formaldehyde • Parabens • phthalates (endocrin disrupting preservatives) *100 unique chemicals in every day personal products . MINERAL OIL (LIQUID PETROLEUM)IS A BY PRODUCT OF PETROLEUM AND IS KNOWN TO INCREASE THE RISK OF CANCER. *THESE CHEMICALS SLOWLY POISON US THROUGH REPEATED USE!!!

WARNING! CONTAINS KNOWN IRRITANTS, CARCINOGENS, AND/OR NEUROTOXINS Carcinogens are chemicals that cause cancer. Neurotoxins are chemicals that adversely affect the nervous system reducing emotional well being, mental alertness, coordination and other functions associated with intelligence.• Lysol Disinfectant (all scents) • Pine-Sol Multi-Action Spray• Renuzit Air Deodorizer • Tilex Soap Scum Remover• Gillette Foamy Skin Conditioning • Colgate Toothpaste• Speed Stick Deodorant • Arm & Hammer Toothpaste• Soft Soap • Crest Tarter Control• Secret Deoderant • Ban Roll-on• Spic & Span Cleaner • English Leather Deodorant• Glass Plus • Lever 2000• Ajax Cleaner • Old English Furniture Spray• Spray and Wash Stain Remover • Endust• Sunlight Dishwashing Liquid • Shout Aerosol & Stick• Jergens Liquid Soap • Caress Body Bar• Dove Soap Bars • Camay• Right Guard Deodorant • Ultra Brite Toothpaste• Lady Speed Stick • Irish Spring Deodorant• Scope Mouthwash • Ponds Dry Skin Bar• Lemon Pledge • Formula 409
• Avoid CT Scans as they have been linked to progression of cancer• Avoid EMF’s (electromagnetic field) – Electronics – Power Lines – Modems – appliances
• NEVER heat your food in plastic• Plastic bottles leach toxic chemicals into water and food• Items marked with 3,6, and 7 never be used• Labeling with 2, 4, and 5 less dangerous• NEVER freeze your food in plastic containers
62 TOXIC CHEMICALS ARE IN THE AVERAGE HOME!
BUY CLOTHES THAT DON’T NEED DRY CLEANING• Use a chemical called perc (perchloroethylene) found to cause kidney and liver damage• take out of plastic to air out before wearingChoose cucumbers over pickles• Studies find that smoked and pickled foods contain various carcinogens Walking • Take a 30-minute walk every evening after dinner to reduce your risk of breast cancer.
CUT A KIWI FRUIT IN HALF, SPOON OUT THEFLESH• Kiwi is a little hand grenade of cancer fighting antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein, and copper• Rub a couple of cut kiwifruit on a low-fat cut of meat for tenderizingADD GARLIC TO EVERYTHING YOU EAT• Contains sulfur compounds that may stimulate the immune system’s natural defenses against cancer, and may have the potential to reduce tumor growth.• Studies suggest that garlic can reduce stomach cancer by as much as a factor of 12TAKE UP A TEA HABIT• Protects against a variety of cancers as well as heart disease• Chemical in green tea EGCG could be one of the most powerful anticancer compounds ever discovered.
BLEACHis linked to the rising rates of breast cancer in women,reproductive problems in men and learning andbehavioral problems in childrenCOAT BARBECUE FOOD WITH A THICK SAUCE• Grilling meat can create a variety of cancer-causing chemicals if the charring flames touch the meat• American Institute for Cancer Research found that coating the meat with a thick marinade and preventing direct contact with the flames reduced the amount of chemicalEVERY TIME YOU GO TO THE BATHROOM, STOP BY THEKITCHEN OR WATER COOLER FOR A GLASS OF WATER• Published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1996 found men who drank six 8-ounces of water daily slashed their risk of bladder cancer in half.• Another study for women lowered their risk of colon cancer reducing risk by 45 percent.
