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? Processed foods are primarily carbohydrates with essential nutrients removed. Such as baked goods, for longer shelf life. You will need a sufficient quantity of these type products to satisfy your nutritional needs. The excess will be stored in your body. Fiber is the part of the plant that your body can’t digest. Fiber slows fats and sugars entering the blood stream, and since fats bind to fiber, it lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. Soluble fiber is so potent it is allowed to be advertised on products such as oatmeal, as “heart healthy”. If you don’t get enough fiber in your diet (at least 25 grams), you are probably consuming excessive fats and sugar, which of course are being stored. Fruit and whole grains are high in fiber. If you want to get slim or get healthier increase your fruit and exchange enriched flours for whole grain. I’m a supplement advocate and include a fiber supplement in my daily regimen. I increase my fiber anytime I eat red meat or poultry. While we’re talking about enriched flour, let’s take a look at the whole concept of food enrichment. Enriched, implies that something has been added to food to make it better. When a nutrient is lost in processing and replaced, or is added for longer shelf life. Fortified foods are foods with nutrients added, that are not replacements. Business Home Auto Boat Renters Workers Comp.

With the rescinding of “Country Of Origin” labeling, and the world’s leading pork manufacturer now owned by the Chinese, I have concerns and would limit my intake. The response I’ve received about making Northeast North Carolina the “Organic Capital of the World”, has been remarkable. Many cancer studies have shown that one of our major crops, organic cruciferous produce, are potent cancer fighters. I believe that organic cruciferous produce, are going to be one of the most coveted commodities in the world as cancer rates rise. Northeast North Carolina, is ideally located to capitalize on our long growing season and brilliant farmers. Our proximity to a major seaport, railroad, major trucking hub and interstate highways, provide access to more than 50,000,000 million customers. I envision our farmers making their own deals with organic produce customers. With consumer demand for organic on the rise, this is the next big thing. Finally, I had a wonderful time at the well attended, Relay for Life Survivor’s and their care provider’s dinner. Debbie Morrisette did her usual masterful job. Clearly, the American Cancer Society (ACA), deserves our support. Cruciferous produce is medicine. AESOP’S FABLES The Thrush and the Fowler A THRUSH was feeding on a myrtle-tree and did not move from it because its berries were so delicious. A Fowler observed her staying so long in one spot, and having well bird-limed his reeds, caught her. The Thrush, being at the point of death, exclaimed, “O foolish creature that I am! For the sake of a little pleasant food I have deprived myself of my life.” Warren Green can be reached at Albemarle Tradewinds June 2016 7
