I use herbs and vitamins, home grown food, and knowledge started when I read a book on nutrition while waiting from late AM to late after noon winds to die down while a crop sprayer in June of '72. I was one of the last to spray DDT in the US. I got accidentally poisoned by Toxaphene which hit just as I was diving into a field surrounded by wires. Took 15 minutes to wear off enough to do the job, and until the afternoon to fully feel OK.
It started me on a quest for nutritional and agricultural knowledge (along with my other numerous quests for knowledge). I learned some things too late to save family and friends, but have helped others. Sure, a lot of stuff is hype, and there are a lot of nutritional supplement profiteers and frauds. Not everything can be cured or helped. I do not remember the last time I got sick. I take supplements for traumatic arthritis which have minimal effect. The ones for my heart have kept it and my arteries clear and healthy. The anti-cancer ones and immunity ones have kept me from getting cancers others my age and younger got, and free of sickness.
I am in a high risk category from Agent Orange exposure, smoking up until 4-4-04, heavy drinking from '86 to '96, family history of heart disease and cancer. I have to take extra Liv 52 for Hep C I got from the blood of RVN wounded. I cut back too much and damage began to return that had been removed by the stuff. Can't get by with insufficient doses. I can't always get what I need even from my Earthship and outside garden foods, so take kelp and veg & fruit pills. Radiation from the sun can cause burn in as little as 15 minutes many days here at 8,880'.
These things really work, but require a great deal of study and wisdom in their use.

Juice Plus vitamins are wicked awesome. The wife had some prescribed long ago but she never took them. I eventually started them and wow, my vision noticably improved, and this was when it wasn't even a problem. My energy level was such that I could stay up late and not feel tired. I could go to sleep any time I wanted within reason and the sleep itself was always very restful. Today I take Flintstones vitamins and get nearly the same effect with 3-4 a day. Much cheaper.

I've always bought fruits and vegetables from little old guys that sell out of the back of their trucks. They just taste better (and the produce is good too #-o ). For all I know, they use more synthetic fertilizers than those who grow the bland counterparts at the supermarket. Frankly, I don't care. My diet is sufficiently rich in nutrients.

On the topic of DDT.

Breast cancer had been rising steadily in Israel for 25 years, but rates dropped sharply between 1976 and 1986. The only apparent reason they could come up with was a banning of organochlorine pesticides (DDT, BHC and lindane) that had been enacted in the 1970s.

I can drink water containing sulfuric acid, cyanide, and cocaine. In the appropriate concentrations, the effects would be negligible. Concentration. That's a key word. You understand it's implications, right?

Quote:
The main culprit is IGF-1 A Harvard university study found that men with the highest IGF-1 levels had up to 4 times the risk of prostate cancer as those with the lowest. Professor Jeff Holly, a leading expert on IGF-1 said that those in the top quarter of IGF-1 blood levels have a three to fourfold risk in breast, prostate or colorectal cancer.


Citation please.

Quote:
A high dairy intake is also linked to increased risk of ovarian cancer.
The 2010 100% Health Survey involving 55,000 people showed that the more milk a person consumed the worse their overall health, digestion, immune and hormonal health.


As I stated before, a "high" intake of anything would be unhealthy by definition. One can die by drinking sufficient amounts of perfectly pure, distilled water. Those crying about "bad" stuff don't seem to understand that it's not the stuff that gets you, it's the amount of the stuff.

[quote]

Ever thought of doing some research?

"It's the amount of stuff"...That's what it says doesn't it? The higher your intake the greater your risk.

The National Cancer Institute, no friends of the naturopathic cancer movement, said that 19 out of 23 studies have shown a positive association between dairy intake and prostate cancer.
'This is one of the most consistent dietary predictors for prostate cancer in the published literature...In these studies men with the highest dairy intakes had approximately double the risk of total prostate cancer and up to fourfold increase in risk of metastatic or fatal prostate cancer relative to low consumers.'

My point being, dairy isn't necessarily the problem. Not to mention your confusing correlation with causation.

It is exactly the problem!, hence "positive associaton".

Nobody is saying dairy is solely responsible for prostate cancer, nor breast cancer, but the fact is the presence of IGF-1 and perhaps other naturally occuring growth factors in milk, accelerates cancer cell growth.
Certainly nobody with breast, prostate or colorectal cancer should consume dairy products.
I don't think anybody should!
