16 Cancer-Causing Foods You Should Avoid! ...........


Please SHARE these 16 REALLY BAD foods that you should try to avoid at all costs!

#1 - Microwave popcorn

#1 - Microwave popcorn
Sure it's easy to pop a bag of popcorn in the microwave when you want a quick and tasty snack, but is it really worth risking yourself for liver, testicular and pancreatic cancer? The microwave popcorn bags you have in your cabinet are lined with carcinogenic chemicals AND so is a chemical in the popcorn itself, which creates the artificial butter flavor. If you can't give up your favorite movie-time snack, it's time to switch to the old-fashioned stove top or a kernel popping machine like you see at movie theaters.

#2 - Non-organic produce

#2 - Non-organic produce
You're not alone in thinking ALL fruits and vegetables are good for you, but there are actually many dangerous pesticides sprayed on non-organic fruits that are linked to cancer. One example is Altrazine, a weed-killer used at many U.S. farms, but banned in Europe for causing severe problems in humans, such as infertility. Another problem with non-organic farmed produce is the use of toxic fertilizers and hormones used to make fruits and veggies bigger. In case you were wondering, the worst offenders are apples, followed by oranges, strawberries and grapes. ALWAYS wash fruits and veggies to be safe, but know that this doesn't remove all pesticides.

#3 - Canned tomatoes

#3 - Canned tomatoes
I know what you're thinking... You've likely heard how the nutrient Lycopene in tomatoes lowers cancer risks, but that benefit is completely cancelled out when the lining of canned tomatoes contain chemicals that disrupt hormonal activity in the body. Since tomatoes are so acidic, the chemical BPA actually leeches from the lining into the tomatoes. This toxic chemical has been linked to different cancers, heart disease and reproductive problems. Next time you feel like making a nice red sauce, go with a glass jar or stew the tomatoes yourself.

#4 - Processed meats

#4 - Processed meats
If you're a carnivore, it may be hard to give up tasty deli sandwiches or cured meats to go with your cheese, but the benefits definitely outweigh the cancerous risk. Processed meats are created with excessive salt and chemicals that damage our health. A study over 13 years showed that 1 out of 17 people died who ate 160 grams of processed meats. That's 44 percent risk of cancer, as opposed to people who ate 20 grams or less. These meats are so packed with preservatives to look fresh, but they are well-known carcinogens, including the same things found in cigarette smoke.

#5 - Farm-raised salmon

#5 - Farm-raised salmon
Sure fish, especially salmon, is known as one of the healthiest foods out there, but unfortunately more than 60% of salmon in the U.S. is farm-raised... and could be deadly. Farm-raised fish are fed unnatural diets and contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides and other known carcinogens found in materials like asbestos. Farmed salmon is also fattier than fresh salmon, which means it soaks up more toxins. Next time you want a healthy omega-3 packed, treat yourself to fresh Alaskan salmon instead.

#6 - Potato chips

#6 - Potato chips
They may be cheap, easy and delicious, but these crispy, addicting snacks can also be deadly. These fatty foods don't only cause weight gain because of their high trans-fat content, they also have excessive sodium levels, which cause high blood pressure and artificial flavors, preservatives and colors. Another risk is the presence of acrymalide, a known carcinogen found in cigarettes. Try not to feed these quick snacks to yourself or your kids and choose pretzels, air-popped popcorn or baked apple chips instead.

#7 - Hydrogenated oils

#7 - Hydrogenated oils
Hydrogenated oils are vegetable oils, which cannot be naturally extracted like olive oil, soy or canola oil, they must be chemically removed. They are commonly used in many foods in your pantry to preserve and keep their shelf life, yet they are also linked to cancer, birth defects, heart disease and many other fatalities. NEVER cook with hydrogenated oils and check your labels for healthy oils like olive, soy and canola instead.

#8 - Salty, pickled and smoked foods

#8 - Salty, pickled and smoked foods
They may be delicious, but many salty, pickled and smoked foods are processed with the preservative nitrate, which changes in our bodies to N-nitroso composites, which are associate with high cancer-developing risks. Smoked foods like meat or nuts absorb the smoke, which contains the same tar found in cigarettes. Colorectal and stomach cancer are linked to salty, pickled and smoked foods. Do you have a taste for these cravable foods now?!

#9 - Processed white flour

#9 - Processed white flour
Oprah famously lost a lot of weight by cutting out anything white, especially the big culprit - white flour. You may have heard it's bad for you, but you probably don't realize that chemically-bleaching flour with chlorine gas kills all of it's healthy nutrients. Chlorine gas can be deadly when inhaled, so why would we want it in our dinner? White flour also contains a high glycemic rate, which raises blood sugar and insulin levels and can directly cause diabetes. Cancerous tumors feed on sugar in the bloodstream, so by avoiding refined grains like processed white flour, you can avoid or starve deadly tumors.

#10 - GMO's

#10 - GMO's
You may have heard the term GMO, but you're not alone in not fully understanding the dangers of genetically modified organisms. Why would anyone want to eat something that sounds like that, right?! WRONG! After GMO's were introduced in 1996, Americans with 3 or more chronic illnesses jumped from 7 to 13% in just 9 years. Allergies skyrocketed and so did Autism in children, reproductive and digestion problems. GM vegetables fed to rats caused development of horrifying tumors. One of the biggest culprits was GM bovine growth hormone found in milk. Stay away from these silent killers and choose certified organic, non-GMO verified and locally-grown foods that are produced without biotechnology. You'll be thankful you did later on in life.

#11 - Refined sugars

#11 - Refined sugars
Cancer cells LOVE refined sugars, which spike insulin levels and and promote cancer growth. High-fructose corn syrup is considered the worst offender and it's found in any sweet you can think of. It's been known for a long time that cancer cells feed off of sugar, so with so many people addicted to sugary treats, it's no wonder why cancer rates have skyrocketed.

#12 - Artificial sweeteners

#12 - Artificial sweeteners
While many people choose artificial sweeteners to lose weight, they are actually doing way worse damage to the body. People who consume artificial sweeteners in soda, coffee or diet-candy actually end up gaining weight and it does nothing to help those with diabetes. Aspartame found in artificial sweeteners has been known to cause convulsions, cataracts and gastro paresis. Also, artificial sweeteners do nothing to inhibit the body’s ability to monitor its daily calorie consumption, making us crave sweets even more. Another deadly toxin called DKP forms in the body from these fake sweets that produces cancer-causing chemicals, especially brain tumors. To sum it up, there is pretty much NEVER a good reason to ingest artificial sweeteners.

#13 - ANYTHING "diet"

You may be thinking you're doing the right thing when choosing a food with a "diet" or "low-fat" label, but you're actually doing way more harm than good. Chemical artificial sweetener aspartame, again, is the big culprit, causing cancer, birth defects and heart problems. Think about it - anything "diet" is chemically processed and not REAL food. These foods also contain additives like ones found in cocaine to make you feel good, but also be addicting. Be smart and eat nature's delicious, natural foods - organic only, of course!

#14 - Alcohol

#14 - Alcohol
Alcohol use is the second leading cause of cancer, right behind tobacco use. While a moderate or low consumption of alcohol can be healthy and lead to a reduced risk of heart disease, excessive drinking is known to cause heart failure, stroke, and sudden death. Excessive alcohol use is the biggest cause of mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, mouth, rectum and breast cancers. Don't worry! You don't need to give up your glass of wine with dinner, but, for your health’s sake, stick to one.

#15 - Red meat

#15 - Red meat
If you love a delicious steak now and then, don't worry! Red meat is actually a good thing in your diet in small doses, but only if it's grass-fed beef, which can actually help fight certain cancers. However, people who eat meat like hamburgers every day have a greater risk in developing deadly cancers, upping their risk to 22% in men and 20% in women. Red meat is particularly good at causing colon cancer. So, enjoy your steak dinner now and then, but don't do it every night of the week and when you do crave red meat, stick to grass-fed, organic beef.

#16 - Soft drinks

#16 - Soft drinks
Soft drinks, soda, pop... no matter what you call it, it's still detrimental to your health! Soda is packed full of calories, sugar and artificial ingredients, and has ZERO nutritional benefit. One can of soda contains about ten packets of sugar and most popular diet and sugared sodas are nearly as corrosive to dental enamel as battery acid. Think the occasional soda won't hurt? Studies have shown that only drinking two sodas per week nearly doubles the risk of pancreatic cancer. There are plenty of alternatives out there, so next time you're craving something sweet, think about what you're putting into your body. Your health is an investment, never forget that!

Home Remedies for Burns ......... Flour !

A woman's experience with burns . . .

Some time ago I was cooking some corn and, my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went into the boiling water....A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just as I was screaming, and asked me if I had some plain old flour... I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He told me to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes which I did. He said that in Vietnam , there was a guy on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out...Well, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had a blister!!!!

... Long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 mins, pulled it out and did not even have a red mark or a blister and absolutely NO PAIN. Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself. *Cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour.
I use the flour and have never ONCE had I ever had even a red spot/burn mark, or a blister! I even burnt my tongue once, put the flour on it for about 10 minutes .... the pain was gone and no burn.

Try it . . . Experience a miracle! Keep a bag of flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did!

Pau Lembut Buttermilk ..........


Bahan-bahanya ( bahan doh pau)
400 gram tepung roti ( kalau guna tepung pau lagi bagus)
100gram tepung gandum
200ml buttermilk (susu segar dicampur dengan 1 sudu besar cuka makan )
100 ml air suam
2 sudu kecil baking powder
50 gram shortening @ lemak sayuran
2 sudu besar gula
1 sudu kecil garam
8gram atau 3 sudu kecil yis

Untuk Inti:  guna inti kacang merah, kaya dan krim coklat.

1. Masukkan semua bahan doh pau dalam bekas adunan dan uli sehingga tidak melekat pada tangan, pastikan doh elastik ye, permukaan doh kena licin dan masa menguli amat penting bila membuat doh pau, pastikan doh betul lembut dan licin sebelum diperap,  perap dalam 40 minit atau sehingga satu jam, selepas itu tumbuk-tumbukkan doh bagi keluarkan angin. ( jika menggunakan Bread Maker (BM), masukkan semua bahan dan tekan ON, tunggu sampai siap di uli dan boleh terus ke langkah 2 di bawah) .

2.  Bahagi doh pada beberapa bebola kecil dan biarkan sebentar, lebih kurang 6 ke 7 minit, kemudian leperkan sedikit dan masukkan sedikit  inti kacang merah, kaya, krim coklat ataupun ape jua inti kegemaran anda,  tutup kemas, ulang langkah tadi hingga doh habis.

3. Lapik pau dengan baking sheet atau daun pisang, dan biarkan pau naik dua kali ganda lebih kurang 40 minit jam, Panaskan pengukus, dan pastikan air betul-betul mendidih, kukus pau dengan api sederhana, tak perlu api terlalu besar selama lebih kurang 7 hingga 8 minit sahaja, bergantung pada saiz pau. Jika pau kecil-kecil, cukup hanya 5 ke 6 minit sahaja.

Tips-Tips untuk mengelakkan pau berkedut apabila selesai dikukus.........

1. Pastikan air kukusan betul-betul mendidih. ( air kukusan lebih kurang 3/4 pengukus)
2. Jangan kukus pau terlalu lama ( masa yang ros sarankan hanya 6,7 dan 8 minit sahaja), jika buat pau yang comel, 5 ke 6 minit sudah mencukupi.

3. Apabila mahu menangkat pau yang sudah di masak, angkat sekali pengukus atasnya dan alihkan dari haba pengukus, angkat pau yang sudah masak dan letakkan di dalam bekas ( jarak-jarakkan pau, jangan ditindih antara satu sama lain)  dan susun baki pau yang mahu dikukus, ulang langkah tadi sehingga selesai.

4.Pastikan air kukusan tidak jatuh pada permukaan pau, ( kalau nak lagi yakin boleh balut penutup pengukus dengan kain bersih).

5. Jangan buka penutup sebelum masa yang ditetapkan, kalau asyik buka penutup pengukus tu, haba sejuk membuatkan pau sensitif dan pau akan mengecil dan permukaan nye berkedut.

6. Untuk pastikan pau yang dihasilkan putih melepak-lepak pastikan guna bahan yang putih, contohnya guna shortening, jangan guna butter atau marjerin.

7. Di sarankan guna tepung pau, jika ade lah, tepung pau adalah tepung low protein.

8. Jika sudah nampak pau yang siap diletak inti tu sudah naik dua kali ganda, terus kukus, jangan over perap, nanti liang dalamnya belubang-lubang bila terlebih masa perapan.

Bloated ? Beat Bloat With Yoga ........

"Fifteen minutes of yoga will help ease your pain," says Zayna Gold, creator of Healing Through Movement and a Boston-based yoga instructor.

Beat bloat and flatten your belly with these 14 yoga poses  :-



2)  Knees hugged to chest or "Apanasana ".

You'll want to do this simple stretch—also known as the wind-relieving pose—to gain relief from bloating and gas pains.

How to do it: Lie down, relax and inhale, placing your hands on your knees. Exhale, and hug your knees to your chest. Rock your knees from side to side to maximize the stretch. Stay for five to ten breaths, and release your knees. Repeat this move a few more times.

Modification: Bring up your knees as far as it is comfortable. To vary the stretch, you can do one side at a time. Leaving your left leg extended, bring up your right knee and hold it for five or more breaths. Then, switch to the other side.


3) Spinal Twist '
Use this twist pose to soothe and tone your abdomen.

How to do it: Lie down, hug your knees and inhale. As you exhale, drop your knees to the left, using your left hand to push them down gently. Then, turn your head and stretch your arm out to the right. Stay for five to ten breaths. Inhale, and return your hands and knees to center. Repeat on the other side.


4)   Bridge Pose or "Setu Bandha Sarvangasana"

This mild inversion helps your blood flow, making you feel more energized.

How to do it: Lie on the floor and bend your knees. Keep your arms beside your body and your feet flat on the floor. Move your hips up to give your chest a good stretch. To better aid your digestion, try this variation. "Press one hip up and hold the pose. Take five breaths, then switch to the other side," says Gold.

Modification: Keep your hands under you as you arch your back and open your chest. You can also clasp your hands and interlace your fingers under your back.


5)  One legged seated spinal twist .

Since you're doing this twist pose from a seated position, you have more control over your stretch.

How to do it: Sit with your legs extended. Bend your right knee and place your heel close to your body. Reach your right arm behind you and place your palm on the floor. Your left elbow goes on the outside of the right knee to help you twist. Stay for five or more breaths, deepening the stretch every time you exhale. Then release the twist and repeat on the other side.


6)  Seated forward bend pose or "Paschimottanasana"

This simple stretch helps you relax, and relieve some of the stress that's affecting your digestion.

How to do it: Sit on the floor with your legs in front of you. Keeping your back straight, slowly hinge forward at the hips and lower your torso. Stay there for five to ten deep breaths.

Modification: Lower yourself as far as you can, but keep it comfortable and feel the stretch.


7)  Seated heart opener.

 Use this move when you've eaten too much. It will stretch out your belly and ease stomach cramps.

How to do it: Sit down on your heels and lean back, placing your palms about eight inches behind you, with your fingertips pointing away from you. Press your hands into the ground, lift your chest and arch your back. You should feel your hips pushing into your heels. Increase the stretch by lowering your head behind you. Feel the stretch in your throat and chest. Hold for five breaths, and then sit up.

Modification: You can do this pose while sitting in a chair. Lift your chest, arch your back and feel the stretch.


8)  Cat and Cow or " Marjaryasana and Bitilasana"

 Transition between these two poses to warm up your spine and relieve the tension in your back and neck.

How to do it: Get on your hands and knees on the floor. Inhale, making sure your back is flat and your abs engaged. Exhale, drop your head and round up your spine for cat pose. On an inhale, arch your back, lifting your head and butt for cow pose. Switch back and forth between the two poses, connecting your inhale with cow pose and exhale with cat pose. Repeat several times.


9)  Child's pose or "Balasana"

 Also known as the resting pose, this is a basic move you can use for a relaxing stretch. Stay in this position for five breaths or more.

How to do it: Sit on your knees and feet with your legs spaced wide apart. Lean forward, stretching your arms in front of you. Then, keeping your back straight, place your forehead on the floor.

Modification: To make it easier to hold the pose, rest your head on a block or a pillow.


10)  Downward Facing Dog.

 Do this all-over stretch to energize your mind and body.

How to do it: Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Keeping your back straight, hinge forward and press your palms to the ground. Hold the pose for five to ten breaths. Alternate with child's pose.

Modification: Place your feet further back, and bend your knees to make it easier to keep your back straight.


11)  Standing forward bend.

 Hold this pose to strengthen your spine and relieve tension in your neck and back.

How to do it: Stand with your legs apart, and bend forward from the waist. Keeping your back straight, place your hands on the floor.

Modification: Can't reach the floor? Place your hands on a yoga block or your furniture to help you hold the pose.


12)  Open triangle pose.

 Tone your belly, and get a good stretch and twist with this pose.

How to do it: Stand and take a big step back with your right foot, turning it towards the side of the mat. Spread out your arms. Keep your spine long as you hinge forward at the hip. Float your left hand down to the floor. Raise your right arm, keeping your arms spread out. Look up to your right hand. To exit the pose, look down to your left foot before you straighten up. Repeat on the other side.

Modification: Float your forward hand down to your shin, or a yoga block placed beside your foot.

13)  Chair pose.

 This pose opens up your chest, and helps strengthen and tone your legs.

How to do it: Stand with your feet together. Bend your knees like you're sitting in a chair. At the same time, raise your arms up beside your ears. To exit the pose, straighten your arms on an exhale. Then, rise to a standing position, and bring your arms down to your sides. "For more dynamic action, you can move out of the pose and into a standing position on alternating breaths," says Gold.

Modification: Leaning against a wall will help you hold the pose. If you're stiff, you can separate your feet so that they're hip-width apart.


14)  Breathe in and out .

 As you end the exercise, take a moment to breathe deeply for up to five minutes. "This is the best way to wind up your yoga practice for a final healing to the digestive system," says Gold.

How to do it: Exhale deeply through your nose. Then, inhale slowly through both nostrils. Repeat five to ten times, each time focusing intently on your breath.
