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? I thought I’d expand on food as medicine. Cancer researchers are studying cruciferous vegetables . Cruciferous vegetables are plentiful in the Albemarle and includes: Bok Choy, Cabbage, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Collards, Kale, Cauliflower, etc. They are rich in nutrients, including carotenoids, vitamins C,E, K, fiber, and a group of substances known as glucosinolates. During digestion, glucosinolates are broken down to form biologically active compounds such as indoles, and sulforaphane (an isothiocyanate). Indoles and isothiocyanates are the most frequently studied for their anticancer effects. They are thought to inhibit the development of cancer in the bladder, breast, colon, liver, lung and stomach by protecting cells from DNA damage, inducing cell death (apoptosis), they help inactivate carcinogens, they have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. They are believed to inhibit tumor blood vessel formation and tumor cell migration. Food as medicine makes sense, particularly to cancer survivors. The newest, most significant cancer strategies include immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is based upon training your body’s immune system to recognize and combat cancer cells. Eighty percent of your immune system is based in your digestive system and nourished by your nutrient intake. Consequently, it’s in your best interest to avoid contaminated food and water. The food industry uses chemicals such as antibiotics, which also kills beneficial bacteria and damages your immune system. United States food policy is risk based and asserts that if you want chemically free livestock, dairy or produce, you should go organic. If you don’t, you’re gambling. My mission is to provide tools for you to reduce the odds. I glean my information from the Federal Register (our nation’s diary) and the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations). A risk based policy is not zero tolerance, and allows for discretion. Discretion lends itself to negotiation. Here are some examples of probable negotiations: Lead is toxic, it damages at any level, and the damage is always permanent, yet lead still exits in much of the nations plumbing. There are acceptable levels of e-coli in fresh meat and poultry products. The USDA advises through “safe handling instructions” how to handle the contaminated food that you’re going to consume. I remind you that the USDA does not have recall authority and Country-Of-Origin (COO) regulations have been rescinded. Removing identification from imported meat makes me wonder about motive. Finally. I”m encouraged by the The College Of the Albemarle’s (COA) proposed agriculture program. I had a great conversation with Charles Purser, Dean of the Edenton-Chowan campus who provided me with valuable information about the interest in sustainable agriculture in our high schools. Agriculture production fits very comfortably in a STEM related curriculum, and can be financed through USDA rural economic development programs. A thriving sustainable, organic, produce industry, will be an economic driver, and promote healthier options for cancer survivors. We will be the “Organic Capital of the World”. I’ll keep you posted on COA’s progress. Business Home Auto Boat Renters Workers Comp.
