    Several commonly used culinary herbs have been identified by the National Cancer Institute as possessing compounds that protect us against cancer. These "defensive" herbs include those belonging to the onion, ginger, mint, and parsley families, as well as flax. Use them regularly to flavor soups, stews, sauces, dips, salad dressings, entrées, vegetables, and stir-fry dishes.
    They contain a diversity of active phytochemicals (such as flavonoids, terpenoids, phthalides, and sulfur compounds) that can produce a serious punch, combating the proliferation of cancer cells.

    Garlic and Onions
    A recent study revealed that the risk of prostate cancer was 44 percent lower in those using garlic more than once per week. In China persons with the highest intake of garlic, onions, and leeks had a risk of stomach cancer that was 40 percent lower than that of those with the lowest intake. In the Iowa Woman's Health Study the highest consumption of garlic was associated with a 32 percent reduced risk of colon cancer.
    The antitumor property of garlic is a result of its diverse content of organic sulfides, as well as other health-promoting compounds such as flavonoids, phenolic acids, phytosterols, and saponins. Garlic's inhibition of tumor growth seems to be effective only when the tumor is small. More research is needed to determine the exact quantity of garlic needed to minimize cancer risk.
    Studies in Greece have shown that a high consumption of onions, garlic, and other allium (bulbous) herbs protects against stomach cancer. A Dutch scientific investigation also revealed that stomach cancer occurrence in those consuming at least one half an onion a day was about 50 percent lower than in persons consuming no onions.

    Turmeric and Ginger
    Turmeric offers a rich yellow color when added to foods such as rice and tofu dishes. It also flavors soups. Turmeric's beautiful hue comes from curcumin, a bright-yellow phenolic pigment that's an even more powerful antioxidant than vitamin E. Curcumin boasts the ability to suppress the growth of certain cancers in the stomach, breast, colon, lung, and skin.
    Dried ginger root offers a rich package of gingerols-phenolic antioxidants that possess pronounced anti-inflammatory activity-that inhibit various cancers. Ginger also contains curcumin, which assists in the elimination of cancer-causing substances from the body. A teaspoon of ginger powder every day is a useful and safe addition to any diet. Pieces of ginger can be added to fruit salads, muffins, and other bakery products.

    Flaxseed
    Flaxseed flour is finding its way into more and more breads, cereals, and bakery products. It not only contributes a pleasant nutty flavor but increases the nutri-tional and health benefits of the final product. Some people enjoy a teaspoon or two of flaxseed flour or ground flaxseeds sprinkled on their morning cereal.
    Animal studies have shown that flaxseed in the diet can reduce the incidence of breast tumors by 40 percent, and the tumor size of chemically induced cancers by about 50 percent. The cancer-protective properties of flaxseed are believed to result from their very high level of lignans. Lignan metabolites bind to estrogen receptors and thereby inhibit the growth of estrogen- stimulated breast cancers.

    Members of the Parsley Family
    Cilantro is a great addition to any tomato and lettuce salad, while ground cumin seed brings zest in the preparation of hummus. A sprig of parsley adds color and flavor to soups or vegetable dishes. Fennel finds value in vegetable preparations, while dill is used with success to flavor cucumbers and potato salad. Caraway seeds pep up bakery products and stewed fruits, while coriander seed adds richness to curry powders and pickles.
    Parsley family herbs provide a good source of phthalides, coumarins, terpenoids, polyacetylenes, and other phytochemicals-many of which have cancer-preventive properties. These beneficial substances block metabolic pathways associated with the development of cancer, or induce enzymes that help metabolize and eliminate carcinogens.

    Mints and Ginseng
    Terpenoids, the compounds responsible for the flavors of mints (basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, spearmint) and other common herbs, suppress the growth of tumors and decrease the number of tumors produced. For example, rosemary and sage are rich in ursolic acid and a variety of diterpenoids that inhibit cancer cells from growing.
    In a large study in Korea, the incidence of human cancer was seen to steadily decrease within the length of time Asian ginseng was used. Those who had taken ginseng for one year had 36 percent less cancer than nonusers, while those who used ginseng for five or more years enjoyed 69 percent less cancer. In addition, those who'd eaten ginseng less than 50 times in their life had 45 percent less cancer, while those who'd used ginseng more than 500 times in their life boasted 72 percent less cancer! Ginseng extract and powder were found to be more effective than fresh sliced ginseng or ginseng tea in reducing the risk of cancer.
    Clearly, how we season our food influences our health. An excess of salt and high-fat dressings may tickle our taste buds, but they also increase our risk of cardiovascular disease. Culinary herbs bring the same satisfaction while providing a measure of protection against our most serous foe.
    Love is a many splendid thing and food run a close second.

    7 dont's after a meal


    * Don't smoke-Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

    * Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

    * Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid.This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

    * Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

    * Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted &blocked.

    * Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
    * Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

    here is the tea that has helped so many

    ESSIAC TEA RECIPE,
    Cleansing Your Lymph Circulation And Your Lymph Glands RE-ENABLES Your Own Natural Healing Wisdom To Heal You.
    The Same Intelligence That Grew You From An Egg And A Sperm Knows How To Heal You.
    TRUST IT.
    modified by Shari Soza, soza@snowcrest.net
    The big effect that I saw immediately was that it cleansed the lymph glands on the back of my neck and head. This helps cancer conditions, of course, but it can also help many other health conditions. Essiac Tea is not just for cancer. It also helped my pancreas when I took it on a regular basis. That helped my digestion. Before that, I was having bloating after every time I ate something.
    The original Rene Caisse recipe for Essiac tea, was enough to take care of a whole clinic of waiting patients. I have slightly modified it, for my own use, and it will work for you too.
    Even if you follow the original instructions, and use only 8oz of the dry herbal mixture, it still makes too much, for a single person. While it sits in the refrigerator, it loses its effectiveness, or can even go moldy on you.
    It is better to make it in smaller amounts, and have a more potent result. I am also concerned as to how you can adequately mix in the Turkey Rhubarb root, thruout the whole 45 oz of dry mixture.
    I measure the herbs directly into a ziploc bag, by using the postal scale, to measure BY WEIGHT. I am not talking about measuring by volume, with a cooking measuring cup.

    Dry Herbal Mixture
    Herbs Original Amounts Eight Ounces Four Ounces Two Ounces

    Burdock Root 25 oz 5 oz 2.5 oz 1.25 oz
    Sheep Sorrel Herb 15 oz 3 oz 1.5 oz .75 oz
    Turkey Rhubarb Root 1 oz or 10 t. .20 oz or 2 t. .10 oz or 1 t. .05 oz or 1/2 t.
    Slippery Elm Root 4 oz .8 oz .4 oz .2 oz

    Total Ounces 45 oz 8.82 oz 4.41 oz 2.205 oz
    At the smaller amounts, the accuracy of the scale becomes a limit, so a good compromise is to use the 8 oz amount, and be sure and mix it well in dry form, then carefully measure out either 4 or 2 ounces, for actual making into tea. In the turkey rhubarb amounts, above, "t." means teaspoon. Use a real measuring spoon.
    Store unused portions of the dry mixture in an airtight container, and keep out of the light. After you try Essiac tea, if you want to purchase larger quantities, in bulk,
    the prices are at http://www.snowcrest.net/soza/herbs/MainEsse.htm..

    Preparation of the herbal tea:
    Measure out the desired amount of the dry mixture.
    For each eight ounces of dry herbal mixture, use 2 gallons of distilled water, in a stainless steel kettle. For four ounces, use 1 gallon of distilled water. For two ounces, use 2 quarts of distilled water. [If using half my 8-ounce package, STIR WELL, because I measure directly into each ZipLoc bag.]
    Boil the distilled water. It takes about 30 minutes for 2 gallons.
    Put the dry herbal mixture into the boiling water.
    Stir it and boil hard for about 10 minutes, with the lid on.
    Cover and allow it to sit and cool slowly for six hours.
    After six hours, stir it thoroughly with a wooden or stainless steel tool.
    Let it sit for another six hours.
    Return the kettle to the stove and bring it to a boil.
    When the boiling point is reached, turn off the heat and pour the tea thru a stainless steel strainer into a second stainless steel kettle.
    Clean the first kettle thoroughly.
    Strain the contents a second time from pot 2 to pot 1.
    Bottle the resulting herbal tea immediately into dark amber bottles and seal it while still hot. I used clear glass canning jars successfully.
    Cool them, and store in the refrigerator, until needed. I found that if not used quickly enough, the tea lost its strength, so I recommend using pint jars, instead of quarts.
    ________________________________________
    Directions for use:
    Heat 2 ounces or 4 tablespoons of distilled water, and then mix it with 2 ounces or 4 tablespoons of the tea taken directly from the refrigerator.
    Pour the tea into the measuring device, instead of sticking the spoon into the jar. This habit will protect against contamination.
    Keep the tea refrigerated at all times. Shake well each time before pouring.
    Take it on an empty stomach, at least 2 hours after eating. Wait 2 more hours before eating after taking the tea.
    Good times to take it are at bedtime, or upon awakening. More seriously ill persons can take it safely 3 to 4 times daily, spaced out, as described above, separated from meals, by two hours. It is not going to do you much good to take it with meals. It will not work all mixed up with your dinner. That would just be a waste of money.

    What I think is cool and I wanted to do it since I first saw the signs, is picking my own strawberries. Driving around one day I came upon the area where you pick your own strawberries and it's pretty cheap. They have a few strawberry pickings here but when I thought of all the insects that would be around, I went right to the farmer's market and picked up a tray. About 12 portions (green containers) on a tray for $9.00.

    There is way too much mosquitoes around here for me.

    More Good STuff

    I had the privilege of being swamped by rain for the entire planting season and it did not stop until too late to plant and get a harvest, so there was no garden this year.

    Fortunately I still have canned and frozen left from the previous year and all the cans seem to be good.

    I have the habit of dehydrating and then freezing cherry tomatoes and I still have a one gallon zip lock full of them. They taste as good as fresh in soups and stews.

    This year, no matter what the weather or how late the planting, I must get a batch of tomato plants into the ground. Even if they are in buckets on the porch I will have them this year. Everything else I plant is optional. I can buy canned and frozen just as cheap for storage and preps, but I really enjoy fresh stuff out of the garden in the summer, especially the peas, beans and okra.
