Super berries - causing cancer cells to self destruct

Super foods are not a new concept in the health and nutrition world, but we are proud to create the term “super berries.”
What is a super berry?
Super berries contain high amounts of specialized nutrients and powerful antioxidants that create apoptosis(pronounced a-pop-toe-ses).
Apoptosis, often called “cellular suicide,” is a natural process creating the fine balance between cell death and cell renewal. It’s a crucial system used by the body to get rid of cells that are abnormal, mutated, or no longer function properly.
Cancer cells alter and grow in a way that avoids the self-destruction caused by apoptosis. Traditional forms of cancer therapies such as radiation, drug therapy, and chemotherapy can’t tell the difference between healthy cells and mutated cancerous cells – so all fast growing cells are destroyed, whereas apoptosis only targets cancerous cells.
Scientists have now discovered that certain super-foods and super berries can help prevent cancer and/or trigger natural cell death against cancer cells.
Since emerging evidence proves diet influences the cancer process before it begins, it is crucial you discover which foods can make a difference between preventing cancer or accelerating the spread of cancer.
The David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California studied extracts of six popular berries: blackberry, black raspberry, blueberry, cranberry, red raspberry, and strawberry for their ability to stimulate apoptosis of the COX-2 colon cancer cell line.
The researchers also evaluated these berries for the prevention of oral, breast, colon, and prostate cancer cell growthThey learned black raspberry and strawberry extracts had the most effective apoptosis-inducing effects.
Strawberries and raspberries – also contain a unique phytochemical called ellagic acid, which has the power to prevent skin, bladder, lung, esophagus, and breast cancers.
Remember when my friend said eat every red and green this certainly fits into that category #superberries #fightcabcer #survivor #iamstillawoman

"Hard nipples" - areola or nipple skin

Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??" The answer: Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples". Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…

2017 gone and 2018 hello another travel year!

Here we go again a brand new year. Lots to be grateful for. This year sees a lot of interesting things happening and as we know you get out of life what you put into it.
You know when you spend time with people and they don't do fun things and they don't have much to offer a conversation.
Well that is no one that I know. (Anymore) if you get what I mean.
This year sees my favourite travel buddy of all time Ann and I heading on another adventure. Well actually it's true 3 for us.
Trip 1) Dubai, Egypt, Cyprus and Gallipoli 2005
Trip 2) Italy, Athens, Mikonos and Santorini 2011
So this year sees us off to a great part of the world again and different,
Trip 3) Amazon Jungle, Rio, Argentina and Chilli 2018 yay this year!
Ann and I have been friends since kindergarten so there is a long history nearly all our lives just about.
We have a ball on our trips we have met so many amazing people and seen some pretty amazing things. But all in all we are doing adventures seeing the worl…
