Dioxins Stored in Our Own Fat May Increase Diabetes Risk | NutritionFacts.org

Finding higher diabetes rates among those heavily exposed to toxic pollutants—such as those exposed to Agent Orange, chemical plant explosions, toxic waste dumps, or heavy metals in fish from the Great Lakes—is one thing. Would the same link be found in a random sampling of the general population? Yes. A strong dose-dependent relationship was foundbetween the levels of these pollutants circulating in people’s blood and diabetes. Those with the highest levels of pollutants in their blood stream had 38 times the odds of diabetes.

McDougall Success Stories: Jim Savarese – Off all medications and no longer uses a CPAP machine

Complications from diabetes result from constant elevations in blood glucose, which damage the blood vessels and other tissues. Excess glucose in the bloodstream results in the formation of Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs)—products formed when sugars react with and consequently damage proteins or fats in the body’s tissues, especially the blood vessels. AGEs are produced at an accelerated rate in diabetes and contribute to complications such as impaired wound healing, diabetic nephropathy, and atherosclerosis. In addition to the AGE produced in the body due to excess glucose, some can also come from the diet. Fried foods, meats, and dry cooked starchy foods (roasted/fried potatoes, bread, crackers, cookies, muffins and other baked goods, cold cereals, etc.) are high in AGEs.5,6

Indoor Tanning—More Dangerous than Sunbathing | DrFuhrman.com

Melanoma incidence has climbed steeply in the U.S., doubling between 1982 and 2011. The rise in melanoma is projected to continue. One contributor to these rising rates of melanoma is the use of tanning beds and other indoor tanning devices by young people, especially young women. Young women use indoor tanning most frequently, especially those in their late teens and twenties. About 20 percent of female high school students and young women 18-25 engage in indoor tanning. Indoor tanning in young people is especially alarming, since indoor tanning before the age of 30 increases melanoma risk by 75 percent. Melanoma is the type of skin cancer responsible for the most deaths . In 2009, the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization classified UV tanning devices as carcinogenic to humans.

3 Meditations to Calm Your Mind and Help You Fall Asleep | The Chopra Center

It’s no surprise that so many people have a hard time falling asleep—and getting quality rest once they do.
In today’s hustle-bustle society, many people rush from their beds out into their lives and get back home just in time to crash, before doing it all over again the next day. There aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish the things we need to get done, let alone getting around to the things we actually enjoy and want to be doing.
When we do finally have some time, we relax by watching TV or reading social media and Internet memes on our smartphones. These kinds of activities actually add more stimuli to an already overloaded lifestyle, making it nearly impossible for our racing minds to settle down.

Why Deep Fried Foods May Cause Cancer | NutritionFacts.org

In the latest study on dietary patterns and breast cancer risk among women, healthier eating was associated with eliminating three-quarters of the odds of breast cancer, whereas less healthy eating was associated with up to nearly eight times the odds. Included in the unhealthy eating pattern was the consumption of deep-fried foods, which have previously been linked to breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, oral and throat cancers, esophageal cancer, and cancer of the voicebox. No deep fried foods? What’s a Southern belle to do? Instead of deep fried foods, how about the traditionalSouthern diet, characterized by high intakes of cooked greens, beans, legumes, cabbage, sweet potatoes and cornbread, which may reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer significantly.

Poor sleeping patterns link to cancer – BBC News

Irregular sleeping patterns have been “unequivocally” shown to lead to cancer in tests on mice, a study suggests.
The report, in Current Biology, lends weight to concerns about the damaging impact of shift work on health.
The researchers said women with a family risk of breast cancer should never work shifts, but cautioned that further tests in people were needed.
The data also indicated the animals were 20% heavier despite eating the same amount of food.
