Spices That will Naturally Cut Your Risk of Cancer and Spice up your Barbecued Meat!

Researchers at Kansas State University report that adding certain spices such as: rosemary, fingerroot and tumeric to your meat (especially beef)  before grilling will cut your risk of developing cancer. These spices are sold in an extract form that have demonstrated HCA inhibition of 61 percent to 79 percent, according to Health Day.

Moreover, Health Day reports that "Cooked beef tends to develop more HCAs than other kinds of cooked meats such as pork and chicken," KSU food chemistry professor J. Scott Smith noted in a news release. "Cooked beef patties appear to be the cooked meat with the highest mutagenic activity and may be the most important source of HCAs in the human diet."

So, before you fire up the grill......don't forget the Spices!

Eat More Strawberries To Protect the Cell Structure in the Body

Eating More Strawberries is a Natural Way to protect cell structures in the body and to prevent oxygen damage in all of the body's organ systems. Moreover, strawberries contain phenolic phytonutrients, which serve as potent antioxidants and a heart-protective fruit, but an anti-inflammatory one as well.

Strawberry's phenols block the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase (or COX), whose over-activity has been shown to contribute to unwanted inflammation, such as that involved in rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, and cancer, according to the World's Healthiest Foods Weekly Newsletter.

George Mateljan of World's Healthiest foods, believes that it is healthier to purchase organically grown produce. Organically grown produce is free of pesticides, which is an insect repellant that is sprayed on produce while it is grown on the farm. Trader Joes is an affordable place to buy organically grown strawberries. In fact, I have purchased Organic strawberries for as low as $2.99 a pack at Trader Joes.

Along with eating strawberries, eating a variety of fruits and vegetables is a sure way to help the body fight illnesses such as: cancer, heart disease, diabetes and stroke. In fact, the USDA and health professionals are  recommending a daily intake of 7-13 fruits and vegetables a day. It almost seems nearly impossible and could be expensive to consume that many fruits and vegetables day.

Taking a daily whole food supplement is the next best way to assure that your body gets the recommended amount of phytonutrients. For more information and on the importance of adding a whole food supplment to your diet and research information, visit my Juice Plus+ site.
