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

Does a Low-Carb Vegan Diet Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease?

Friday, May 30th, 2014

logo1267406_md

Research published in the British Medical Journal Open concluded that in addition to weight loss, a specific low-carbohydrate vegan diet may reduce the risk of heart disease by 10 per cent over 10 years. If low-carb diets allow eating animal protein and fats they  may improve weight loss but raise cholesterol whereas diets high in vegetable proteins and oils may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering “bad cholesterol.” Researchers compared the Eco-Atkins diet, a low-carbohydrate vegan diet,  to a high-carbohydrate, low fat diet.  Researchers said “We designed a diet that combined both vegan and low-carbohydrate elements to get the weight loss and cholesterol-lowering benefits of both.”

Twenty three obese men and women completed the six month diet period. The subjects selected their own diet and could adjust it to their needs and preferences. They were given menu plans that outlined foods and amounts and alternatives for the foods listed. The food exchange list allowed the subjects to adapt the diet to their needs and facilitated adherence. Subjects were also encouraged to eat only 60% of their estimated daily caloric requirements-an amount that would maintain their current weight. The Eco-Atkins group aimed for a balance of 26% of their calories from carbohydrates, 31% from protein, and 43% from fat-primarily vegetable fat.  Results showed that the Eco-Atkins group reduced their cholesterol by 10% more  and also lost an average of four more pounds than the high carbohyrate group.
