Juice Cleanse Adventure :: Day 2 of 10

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.”
-Hippocrates

Yesterday was Day 2. Going to work was hard without my morning coffee. Luckily, I am not experiencing the intense caffeine withdrawal that my friend Laura is. She had throbbing headaches all day yesterday and left work early. I pre-made a 52oz juice the night before to take with me. It actually lasted me all day along with my water. My energy levels were great as was my focus. Work was crazy, I was multi-tasking and was able to stay super focused and on top of it all. With a feeling of overall joy. Added bonus. When I got home I was feeling hungry for something savory so I made the suggested snack smoothie which included avocado, tomato, lemon juice, cucumber and spinach. I topped it off with cayenne pepper and ate it like a soup. It really hit the spot. Later I also ate a couple teaspons of hemp seeds. Their nutty flavor satisfied my craving. Then, I took Lulu for a walk, watched 2 very intense episodes of Breaking Bad (trying to catch up), and took a long, hot shower. I slept very well and woke up early with energy. So far, feeling good.

Cancer and the Vegetarian Diet

by William Harris, M.D.

Cancer is not caused by bacteria, faulty diet, inadequate exercise, environmental contaminants, ionizing radiation, tobacco, viruses, nor heredity. Cancer is caused by a series of genetic mutations in DNA which may be either germline (inherited) or somatic (acquired during life). However, the chances of these mutations occurring in sufficient number to result in cancer is affected by all of the preceding factors.

DNA is the critical target molecule in carcinogenesis (1). Although DNA has various repair mechanisms, some types of damage persist and become the basis of the defective molecular biology that is cancer. Oncogenes (tumor genes), tumor suppressing genes, and aptotic genes (causing programmed cell death) normally interact to build normal cells, to prevent excessive growth, and finally to kill the cell before genetic mutations cause it to malfunction.

Table 1. U.S. cancer rates.

Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States, where over 1.3 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed annually, with 550,000 deaths. Current United States incidence figures for the ten leading types of cancer are shown (2). Women have an approximately 1:8 lifetime chance of developing breast cancer, and men have an approximately 1:5 chance of developing prostate cancer. Rates above are per 100,000 in 1992. Both Hodgkin’s disease and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are included under lymphoma.

There are three categories of evidence suggesting that a veg*n (vegetarian or vegan) diet reduces risk for various types of cancer.

Epidemiologically, the intake of animal source food correlates with the country-by-country incidence of six types of cancer. Although none of the reporting countries can be assumed to have large vegan or even vegetarian populations, it appears that the less animal source food per capita, the lower the cancer rate.
