Cancer Growth Needs Angiogenesis or Blood Vessels Five Foods to Stop or Slow Growth

As I mentioned a number of times, we just cannot avoid cancers from forming in our bodies. The key things we must do is to prevent their growth and spread. Many anti-angiogenesis drugs have been developed with mixed results due to side effects and infectiveness and perhaps being applied too late before it spreads.

For too long we have been using chemical warfare chemicals to kill all cells, but cancer cells preferentially because they grow much faster. Very little research had been funded under the Reagan and beyond administrations because a great bias towards leaving this to Big Pharma and small more research oriented firms who have been more successful which has led to Big Pharma buying the small drug company stocks and eventually company. Then more risky research slows considerably.

One of things President Obama did was to double the funding for NIH (National Institutes of Health) which can do high quality research by either doing it themselves or more likely funding promising research. I suspect, but do not know whether the recent vitamin D revolution occurred because professors got enough funding to carry out larger studies or not, but nothing happens by accident. The Democratic House passed 400 Obama bills, often with Republican support, but our senate Republicans will and have done everything in their power using ancient senate rules to stop legislation. Many of bills helpful to Americans have not even been brought up because of Republican opposition to bills they supported in the past.

The Republicans have left our health situation in shambles including corporate Healthcare and cutting the budgets for the FDA, NIH, allowing the widespread use of High Fructose Corn Syrup which allowed much higher levels of fructose into our diets, especially in soft drinks and prepared foods.

Scientific studies has proven that Fructose not only greatly increases obesity because it makes us eat more, but the side products produce in liver metabolism and cell metabolism of fructose increases both heart disease and cancers. Sure fewer people are dying, but the number of people who survive has increased, especially for breast cancer, but more are getting treated for cancer.

The great increase in obesity has led to children producing fat based estrogen at an early and get breasts at age 8 now, especially among the Blacks who eat lots of cheap Fast Foods thanks to our dear Republicans, especially Reagan and the Dept of Agriculture and the Big Five Food Producers who make fiber stripped tasteless foods from cheap subsidized corn and soybeans flavor enhanced with lots of fructose sugar.

Politics: Republicans are using politics to make our National Security less secure by enraging Muslims all over the world while the Moslem countries have all moved towards moderation with the exception of a few such as Iran. The recent problems with a mail-order degreed minister threatening to burn the Koran has led to many incidents throughout our country. The Republicans are willing to win the race at any cost to Americans' security.

We have seen the effects of religious extremism throughout human history leading to genocides by Religious fanatics in both Christians, Muslims, and Pagans alike.

Humans are the only species that has a prefrontal cortex that allows us to have good judgement. Diseases such as parietal epilepsies, and prefrontal cortical injuries have resulted in complete change in the behavior of previously intelligent and well controlled individuals into liars, thieves, adulteress, and uncontrolled greed. Individuals differ widely in how much prefrontal cortical control we have. Some live an emotional life while others may think too much such as myself.

People in lower positions in our economy are not forgiven for outrageous behavior, but we seem to follow those in power or powerful positions such as politicians to lie for political advantage which are outrageous but still accepted by their Stepford Followers. The Wall Street Journal surprisingly found that people who watch television news take off their thinking cap and just feel. That is why most news now is directed towards our emotions rather than our intellect. Exceptions are Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, and a few others at MSNBC, Fareed Zakaria of CNN, and Amanpour of ABC. Sure others appeal to both our intellect and emotions, but they tend to get better ratings when dealing with emotional, but trivial topics.

Cancer Angiogenesis Five Foods Reduce Rate of Blood Vessels in Tumors Disturbing new research suggests that microscopic cancer, small cancer cells that can only been seen under a microscope, is widely prevalent. A recent study of women in their 40s indicated that 40% of them had microscopic breast cancer. Even more shocking, almost 100% of people in their 70s will have microscopic cancer in their thyroid glands.

A microscopic tumor can grow up to 16,000 times its original size in as little as 2 weeks. But new groundbreaking research from The Angiogenesis Foundation proposes that you can stop cancer before it begins to grow. This new preventive approach is called anti-angiogenesis. To learn more about anti-angiogenesis and the groundbreaking research at The Angiogenesis Foundation, click here. Anti-angiogenesis encourages that, by changing the way you eat, you can change your “internal environment,” thereby depriving cancer cells the opportunity to grow and multiply.

Certain foods, eaten in the correct portions and frequency, can provide cancer-starving benefits. Below are 5 foods to eat that can prevent cancer growth:

  1. Bok Choy This type of Chinese cabbage contains brassinin; a powerful cancer-fighter, also found in broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Bok Choy should be eaten 3 times a week, in 1/2 cup servings to obtain its full benefits.
  2. Cooked Tomatoes have more cancer-fighting properties than raw tomatoes. Both contain the molecule lycopene, but heating the tomato changes its chemical structure and makes the benefits more readily available to your body. You should eat 2-3 (1/2 cup) servings of cooked tomatoes a week.
  3. Flounder This fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and low in mercury. Three 6-ounce servings a week is ideal.
  4. Strawberries The antioxidants in this berry help fight cancers. You should eat 1 cup a day, including the juice.
  5. Artichokes contain 3 different cancer-fighting molecules. Enjoy ¼ cup of hearts per day.
