Organic Is Better

A new study by Newcastle University shows that milk from organic, grass-fed cows is better for you. This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. Of course organic and natural anything is going to be much better than its factory farmed and pesticide laden equivalent. Nonetheless, this sort of research is vital to provide empirical evidence of the qualitative difference and to understand exactly how it is better.

In this specific case, organic and naturally grazed animals produce milk that is much higher in antioxidants, beneficial fatty acids, and vitamins. It also demonstrates that the quality changes with the seasons. It is healthiest in the summer, when fresh grass and clover is abundant. Future research will seek ways to boost the nutritional value in winter months.

Milk itself is an interesting study in nutrition. Raw milk from a clean source is much better for you than pasteurized milk. Homogenized milk should be avoided because the process of homogenization causes the milk fats to alter in ways that make it impossible to digest properly.

Dietary guidelines call for limiting whole fat dairy products. A little is okay, but too much can be bad for you.

Organic and natural foods deliver the best nutritional value. They always have more of the nutrients your body needs to stay fit and healthy. And they taste much better! It's win-win.

Easy Ways to Cut Your Risk of Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer, as well as the most deadly, and women are much more vulnerable than men. A nonsmoking woman is twice as likely to develop lung cancer than a nonsmoking man. You can protect yourself and enjoy a long and healthy life by making a few simple lifestyle changes.

Get Some Sun On Your Skin

Your body needs sunlight in order to create vitamin D. Vitamin D provides protection against all kinds of cancer, and cancer rates are significantly lower in sunnier regions. You only need fifteen minutes per day in the sun without sunscreen, at least a few days a week.

Sun Protects Against Cancer

The necessary wavelength that provides UVB radiation is unavailable in northern latitudes during the winter, so you should take a supplement at that time if you live in colder climes. Cod liver oil is a great source of vitamin D. Fatty fish such as herring, catfish, salmon, and mackerel are good sources. Mushrooms can be a good source if they're exosed to UV light for a few minutes after harvesting.

Yellow-Orange Veggies

Carotenoids found in vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes are very protective against cancer. Eating a half cup a day can cut your lung cancer risk by 25%.

Fruits and Juices

Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins which inhibit precancerous cell growth in the lungs. An 8 oz. glass a day or a handful of berries will provide a great deal of protection. Pomegranate seeds and juice protect against lung cancer by providing isoflavones, polyphenols, and ellagic acid. Tomato juice is loaded with the antioxidant lycopene. Lycopene has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer by 32%.

An Apple A Day...

Apples are loaded with cancer fighting flavonoids. Having an apple a day cuts your lung cancer risk by 46%. Don't peel it, though! Most of the flavonoids are stored in the skin.

Apples For Health

Get Active!

The more research that's done, the more obvious it becomes how dangerous the sedentary lifestyle is to human health. It should come as no surprise, then, that exercise is also very protective against lung cancer. Twenty minutes of exercise a day is ideal, but tailor your workout to your fitness level. Check with your doctor before starting any fitness program, especially if you have a medical condition or you've been very sedentary.


Taking just a few regular strength aspirin a week cuts the risk of the most common form of lung cancer in half, even if you smoke. Taking aspirin regularly is not a good idea for everyone, so you should check with your doctor before doing so.

And One Not So Easy...

Everyone knows that smoking is the biggest danger, and that quitting is not so simple. These strategies will offer some protection even for smokers, but if you smoke you really need to quit. 87% of all lung cancer cases are linked to smoking. Medications such as Chantix or Zyprexa can make it easier, or the nicotice patch or gum or nasal spray or lozenge. Hypnotherapy can be helpful, or NLP, or meditation... or all of the above! Whatever it takes. Declare all out war on your smoking habit!

Choosing a Long and Healthy Life

If you want to have better health and vitality, you have to make the right choices. Life is all about the choices you make. Every choice confers certain benefits and certain consequences. You can choose to eat food that has the short term benefit of good flavor and the consequence of long term health problems. You can choose the benefit of great health and vitality with a simple and effective exercise program or the benefit of little effort that comes with a sedentary lifestyle. Just don't be surprised when the time comes to pay the price for the choices you made. It always comes.

"Oh, but it's all in the genes," some people say. "You'll only live a long and healthy life if you've got good genes. Otherwise no amount of exercise and proper diet will do you any good." It is true that genetics can be beneficial or detrimental to your efforts, but they are not the only important factor. They're not even the most important factor for the vast majority of people.

Recent research at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona supports this fact. A research team led by Adolfo Díez Pérez studied the genetics of a man who remained healthy, staying physically and mentally sharp well past the century mark, and the members of his family. They found none of the expected genetic mutations in the KLOTHO gene, which determines mineral density and bone health, or in the LRP5 gene, which is associated with longevity. While there could be other as yet unknown genetic mutations that have an effect on longevity, it appears that the important factors for this man and his long lived family is largely due to their healthy Mediterranean diet and regular physical activity.

While there are no guarantees on your lifespan, you will certainly have a much higher quality of life if you choose to eat healthy (and delicious!) food and get plenty of exercise.
