Tara & Steve Mann (Cancer Crackdown) and Bernice Yoder (Pancreatic Cancer Survivor) Interview.

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

taramannMy first guests, Tara and Steve Mann, are Co-Founders, CEO and President of Cancer Crackdown. (This is a continuation of an interview started last show). Cancer Crackdown is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization, their passion is to help fighters take their battle with cancer to the next level. They are unique in that they fight alongside those battling this disease. They develop plans and help fighters and survivors to be successful in following them to reach their overall health goals. They offer a wide range of resources and encouragement for those fighting, those surviving and those that wish to prevent this disease. We all have a choice in this battle against cancer, to survive or to prevent!!
Their mission is to be the trusted source of knowledge regarding natural therapies to defeat cancer and remain cancer free. We partner with fighters and survivors by supporting and navigating them through their battle. Together, they develop a unique plan that is specific to each individual and instills in them a fearless approach to winning the battle.
Cancer Crackdown started as a small group on Facebook in January 2012 with a few people who wanted to share some information on tips and best practices during chemo. Cancer Crackdown has grown and we are now serving cancer fighters all over the world!!
Cancer fighters that can no longer take chemo or choose not to are in dire need of accurate information and guidance. Due to the vast amount of information available and many untrustworthy sources on the internet, it makes it difficult for us to make decisions about what is viable information and thus dissuades many from knowing what is worth trying. We have and will continue to research topics of interest and ensure credibility of sources. We help put patients in contact with proper practitioners in their area and locate services for them that may benefit their treatment. We are in the process of building on the services we are able to provide to cancer patients that we are so fortunate to partner with during their difficult time.

berenice yoderMy second guest is Bernice Yoder, a 9 year pancreatic cancer survivor. Berenice says: I will be a nine year pancreatic cancer survivor this coming November. When I found out I had cancer, I had no idea what pancreatic cancer was. It had never touched my immediate or extended family. It was something you heard of or read about, not something that happened to you.

This illness changed my life. It gave me more will to live, to be able to finish raising my then 13-year-old daughter who had just lost her dad 15 months before. It taught me to fight, and to never give up. There is always hope even through the pain and grief and anger that is part of this terrible illness. I am proud to say I am a survivor of one of the deadliest cancers

Reduce Plaque Buildup with Garlic?

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Logos 005A new study published in the Journal of Nutrition concluded that Aged Garlic Extract can lower plaque buildup in arteries and prevent heart disease. In the restudy researchers studied the effects of taking daily Aged Garlic Extract in people with metabolic syndrome.  This study, the fourth in which the team evaluated Aged Garlic Extract, fifty five patients diagnosed with metabolic syndrome were enrolled. All were between the ages of 40 and 75 and all were on the brink of developing heart disease.  Researchers measured the total coronary plaque volume and calcium deposit of each subject. They also measured the levels of low-attenuation plaque and non-calcified plaque using the non-invasive imaging tool Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) for each subject.

After dividing the subjects randomly into two groups one was given a 2,400 milligram dose of the Aged Garlic Extract  while the other group was given a placebo. Subjects took the supplement daily for one year.

During follow up screen after one year the subjects who took the Aged Garlic Extract successfully reduced their accumulated total plaque by 80 percent and also lowered the soft plaque.  It is noteworthy that the subjects who took the Aged Garlic Extract had less plaque during the follow up screening. Researchers reemphasized “We have completed four randomnized studies and they have led us to conclude that Aged Garlic Extract can help slow the progression of atherosclerosis and reverse the early stages of heart disease.”

Can Multivitamins and Minerals Protect Older Women with Invasive Breast Cancer?

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment concluded that postmenopausal women who develop invasive breast cancer may benefit from taking supplements including multivitamins and minerals. Researchers of this very large study group found that the risk of dying from invasive breast cancer was 30% lower among women using multivitamin/minerals that among non users. Authors said “Our study offers tentative but intriguing evidence that multivitamin/mineral supplements may help older women who develop invasive breast cancer survive their disease.”

Overall Research Data was collected from 161,608 women post menopausal women between ages 50 and 79 from 40 clinical centers throughout the USA. in the years 1093 to 1998. Research on this study was collected from 7,728 women in this group who were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and were followed for an average of 7 years after their diagnosis. Extensive interviews included data on whether or not they had taken multivitamin/mineral supplements at least once a week during the prior two weeks. About 38 percent of this population were using supplements and most were taking the supplements before their diagnosis. Comparison of the date on mortality and supplements showed that women who took the supplements had a 30 percent lower mortality rate than those who did not. This relationship remained even after taking into consideration such confounding variables as smoking status, education, race/ethnicity, weight, depression, alcohol use, physical activity, ager of breast cancer diagnosis, and diabetes.
