Health and Nutrition Strategies For Cancer Survivors and Everybody Else Warren Green is a 30 year member of the Institute of Food Technology, A HAACP (hazard analysis critical control point) Instructor with a Bachelors degree in Nutrition Science. WHAT’S IN YOUR DIET? Warren Green can be reached at warreng9241@hotmail.com Last month I passed the 77 year old threshold. I can state adamantly, it’s about the food. I’m saying that as an 11 year cancer survivor, and a food safety specialist. My Mission, Advocacy and Passion is to improve the quality of the food. That will strengthen the immune system, and help the body mitigate our toxic environment through our culinary intake. Everything starts with the quality of the food. Our government policy is that if the product is not “Certified Organic” you’re consuming it at your own risk. Agriculture products labeled “USDA -Certified Organic” means that the products have been produced according to USDA organic regulations, which means that if its not labeled certified organic it’s probably not. USDA Organic regulations can be found at (7 CFR Section 205) they include all USDA organic standards, including prohibited practices, requirements, and The National List of Allowed and Prohibited Materials. Last time, I mentioned “spin farming” and promised some details. “Spin” is an acronym for “Small Plot INtensive and is defined as an organic system that is production based. The components are sub-acre in scale, low capital intensive, entrepreneurially driven, and close to markets. “Organics” are the fastest growing segment in the food industry, growing at 20% annually. The Albemarle region is within the 500 mile radius required to be identified as a local supplier, and has the longest growing season in that radius. Using spin farming, an entrepreneur can offer a custom grown organic product, to any customer in the world. That kind of segues into a remarkable advertisement by a major, highly regarded food company. They are saying that their food will be “clean” by the end of the year. That speaks volumes, and they’re one of the better ones. That kind of ad campaign will make some organic suppliers rich. Finally, I came across an interesting study NCI about obesity and cancer, I thought I’d should share to further the discussion about food as medicine. Obesity is associated with increased ricks of at least eight cancers and maybe more. Use your culinary intake to promote better health and a better quality of life. You are what you eat.

One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment. --- Mahatma Gandhi No culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive. --- Mahatma Gandhi facebook.com/AlbemarleTradingPost Albemarle Tradewinds September 2016 7
