I keep dreaming of a future, a future with a long and healthy life, not lived in the shadow of cancer but in the light. ~Patrick Swayze
|Cancer-Kicking Smoothie (Recipe Below)|
Cancer isn't really a sexy topic for a blog. Unless you know someone who is struggling with it (the "announcement", the avalanche of fear, the numbness, the anxiety, the grief, the multi suggestions for treatments, the pharmaceuticals... etc. etc. etc.) you probably don't go on the Internet to search for preventative actions to take.... just a minute.... I don't think I know of anyone who hasn't been in this position (except perhaps a child who doesn't yet know what this scourge is). Okay, probably everyone reading this right now has googled at least once about "alternative" cancer cures, new research, anything that offers hope that the mainstream press doesn't seem to.
I have a delicious, healthy smoothie recipe for you today
from raw foodist, Victoria Boutenko's e-newsletter:
Anti-Cancer Green Smoothie
Whirl the following up in your Vitamix or blend well in another blender type:
1 pint broccoli sprouts
1 pint ripe organic blackberries
1 cup water
Blend all ingredients well. - Enjoy
In 1992, scientists found that broccoli sprouts are rich in a compound that provides significant protection against breast cancer and colon cancer. The compound is called sulforaphane glucosinalate.
Black raspberries (blackberries) have been shown to reduce the risk of oral, esophageal and colon cancer in animal models, according to the researchers.
