Cancer Nutrition: Myths, Controversies and RealitiesNot quite a viral video but I am happy that 2,000 people have watched my video “Nutrition and Cancer; Myths, Controversies and Realities” and hope many more will have an opportunity to see this presentation.
A scary scenario has been painted where anyone may analyze your DNA without your knowledge. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/11/us-usa-geneticprivacy-idUSBRE89A06H20121011?feedType=RSS&feedName=healthNews
With 23andme you have access to your own DNA and know that it is only you who provided it as “the big spit” is certainly not something you wouldn’t know about! I encourage you to have your genome tested with 23andme and own your own results.
Genetic counseling is helpful when determining family history however most genetic counselors don’t integrate this into lifestyle and specifically nutrition advice. That’s where I come in. Please let me know if you would like a brief consultation to explain the relevance of your findings and how to integrate these into dietary changes which may be helpful to you.
The expanded 4th edition of my handbook is now available on my site or at Amazon or Barnes and Noble. The cover features black and red raspberries as well as other beneficial fruit with cancer fighting properties. The bigger size of this edition features over 100 specific chemotherapy drugs and nutritional advice. The layout now has each recipe with its own page making it easier to use.
I look forward to your feedback
Purple-blue fruits and vegetables such as black raspberries are rich in anthocyanins and provide health benefits. Metabolic syndrome is a condition that affects many Americans who have waists that exceed half their height. From the NHANES telephone survey results researchers have found that those who eat plenty of the purple-blue produce have a lower risk of having metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is having 3 or more of the following – being overweight (BMI >25), having a waist that exceeds 35 inches for women, 39 for men, having elevated plasma cholesterol levels, having high blood pressure. If a cup of berries each day would reduce that risk then it’s surely worth it! Check out my store for a great way to boost your berry intake

At annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association research presented that dieters who drank 2 or more diet sodas containing aspartame were 6 times more likely to have abdominal adiposity (belly fat) known to be associated with both type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Is this a chicken or egg situation? Do dieters select diet sodas before or after they get fat? Some suggestion that blood sugar levels are affected by aspartame provided by study using diabetes prone mice. Ironically, on the American Diabetes website they recommend diet sodas!
