[FW] Cancer Update from John Hopkins

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard

tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains,seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts)and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system(IP6, Flor-ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS HOSPITAL , U S - PLEASE READ

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.

Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

上山記 ﹣ 人物篇之一 ﹣ 室友

那是我在帕奧的第一個早上。

早課后用完早餐,玄慈大師終於帶我到圖書館樓下的宿舍去給我找個房間。他隨手打開了八號房房門,只見一個小男生睡坐在床腳邊地上──一個後來全程陪了我在緬甸三個星期的越南小夥子。

小夥子比我早到快三個月。他先是短暫出家當了沙彌;兩個月后因為覺得不合適,所以就還俗了。原本打算離開這裡了,卻因為提交了護照做簽證延長手續并還在進行中,所以只能等手續辦完拿到了護照才能繼續他的旅程。

(話說我在寫這篇文章的當兒,他還沒拿到他的護照……)



這個小夥子來自一個不是很發達的小城市,起碼城裡的人思想都還很懷舊傳統,普遍上認為人生就是二十來歲就結婚生子然後工作賺錢如此這般過日復一日重複的日子。然則他偏偏就在十來歲時就開始質疑了這樣的生活的意義,想要跳出這樣的框框。

時不時離家出走到寶塔里和其他和尚過上幾個星期幾個月是常有的事。他的家人慢慢地也接受了他的追求,讓他繼續尋找這個不言不喻的事兒。

然後,就是來到這禪林之後的情節了。



他是電子工程師,工頭。當我問他之後回去想要干什麼,他說他想做蛋糕;他上過蛋糕課。

他家對面就是一個市場。所以他估計藉著這樣的人潮,他可以在家里的院子門前開個小小的檔口,慢慢地從這裡開始一步一步累計資金開店鋪。

做蛋糕比做工程師快樂,他說。



話說禪林里禁止用電話;雖然我還是看到很多僧人私下拿著手機上網聊天說電話。

重點是我的手機卡在房裡沒有訊號。

在一個翹課的傍晚,我和小夥子到森林帶上手機走了一趟;那也是第一次我和外界聯繫上,在蚊群中報了平安,還拍了幾張照。

其實悲催的是小夥子的手機卡在房裡時不時有若有若無的訊號。於是次日我就另買了和小夥子一樣的第二張卡。

然後在小夥子的幫助下,用剃刀把手機卡從Micro削成了Nano。



大約兩個星期后當我決定要離開到仰光另一個修道院卡巴耶的時候,小夥子竟然也決定和我一起‘暫時離開’。

次日我們就離開了。



他對狗狗還蠻有一套的。

當有狗狗因為陌生而開始對我們探索性地逞兇時,小夥子就往地上吐了一口口水。

然後狗狗就乖乖的了。



卡巴耶宿舍頂樓的曬衣處在沒有很多修道者的時候就是一個很遼闊的開放空間,很是涼爽。但是由於很多風塵雨水的吹刮,加上偶爾好奇的鳥兒飛進來拉屎撒尿,并缺少清理,地上因為污垢的累積變得歲月斑斑。

經過倆人的商討,我們花了一個下午用水潑用掃把刷清了這塊空地的一個小角角,成就了一…

無業遊民

話說,我正處於無業狀態中。

小學中學也不過是各六年,大學更是只有三年而已。而我不知不覺地竟然在這個公司呆上了十年,一晃眼的。離開這一份孕育了我十載的第一份工作,就像小時候離開母校一樣,說不出來的離別,欲言又止的傷感。

然而更大的,是對這樣一個生活模式的告別。

什麼意思呢?我也說不上來。


反正接下來我有足夠的時間去尋找答案就是了。


給心兒的話:家家酒

前言
本篇書寫于2013年8月14日。日前翻了翻未發箱才發現竟然到現在都還沒發表──現在發也好,心兒和天兒姐弟倆可以在玩家家酒前先參考參考。


小孩子的天堂比較簡單:寵愛、溫飽、糖果,還有最重要的──玩樂。

小的時候可以玩的東西實在是太多了!尤其現在科技日益精進的年代,層出不窮的玩意兒爭相面世琳琅滿目。再加上有對你倍加疼愛的小叔……

我們小時候也有很多復古但有趣的遊戲。像是“家家酒”,應該是角色扮演類的遊戲,但關於仔細內容那一部份我竟然不知道當時是怎麼胡弄過去的。

像是扮演媽媽的在家煮飯,煮好了之後,扮演爸爸的回家和扮演兒女的一起吃飯,然後睡覺。睡醒后,然後咧?又再重複嗎?

可我怎麼想,也搞不懂當時家家酒到底是怎麼樣的一個玩法。

這個遊戲到底可以玩多久啊?
