The April 2010 annual meeting of the American Assn for Cancer Research reported the results of a study indicating that people who ate more food with plenty of vitamin K were less likely to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Vitamin K is found in egg yolks, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus.

Speaking of food, I have a client who is absolutely addicted to sweets. We’ve tried different strategies, but sugar gives him comfort. I did some looking into why people crave sweets, fats, pizza, etc., and why they don’t crave vegetables. It turns out that we are born with a taste reflex that accepts sweet tastes; it signals a source of energy, and rejects bitter tastes, which may signal toxins. Biology caused this predicament in order to guarantee our survival-I think that’s pretty cool. However, many sugars today are refined and not very good for your health. Natural fruit sugars in the whole fruit are much better for you, but I haven’t seen many commercials for Medjoul dates lately. Conversely, many vegetables have a bitter taste, Brussels sprouts come to mind. This is probably why most kids (and many adults) don’t like vegetables. Something to think about.

Dr. Whitaker has been espousing the cancer-curing talents of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski for as long as I can remember. A movie was made about his exploits and is now out on DVD. If you want to see what a mess the traditional cancer treatment paradigm is, and Dr. Burzynski’s attempt to change it, I encourage you to check it out. The title is: Burzynski

Stay well, John R Blilie, M.S.
