Carbohydrates (essential nutrient) Carbs are the essential nutrients that effects every cell in the body, so they clearly impact your quality of life. Getting it wrong probably results in stuff like type 2 diabetes, cardiac problems, strokes, obesity and chronic inflammation, such as arthritis. So,what exactly is getting it wrong? I thought you’d never ask. Carbohydrates can be divided into two groups, simple and complex. Most simple carbohydrates are manufactured in a factory, and shelf life and distribution are major considerations. Fiber is processed out for better shelf life. If you don’t restore the fiber, you’re getting it wrong. Complex carbohydrates are plant foods including: whole grains (still has the fiber), fruits, potatoes, and vegetables. For my fellow survivors, you want high quality, complex carbs , as your primary source of this essential nutrient, that should occupy 33% of your diet. Cancer survivors need stability and balance, and they’re compromised by simple carbs. Think local produce, so you don’t have to consider long distance distribution, and shelf life. The closer to the harvest the better. Cancer survivors should be particularly careful with your commercial bread choices. Avoid bread products that contain potassium bromate. Potassium Bromate is considered a carcinogen and not allowed in Canada, Brazil, the U.K., and the European Union. In the United States it merely has to be identified in the ingredient statement. Curious about how a carcinogen is allowed into the food chain? As this article is going to press, I’m seeing press releases regarding cancer in cured meats. As a former meat inspector I have extensive knowledge about cured meat and sausage manufacturing, and why there’s always been concerns about cancer. Check this column next month and I’ll elaborate.. Finally, I ran across an interesting Epigenetic study on why elephants rarely get cancer. Elephants have about 100 times more cells than humans and live about as long. You would think that its cells would mutate and become malignant over the course of their lives at a higher rate than humans. But they rarely die from cancer. It turns out that DNA researchers were able to determine that elephants produced a protein that kills the mutated cells before they become malignant. Dead cells can’t multiply. No multiplying cells, no cancer. The AT reaches 60k readers each month in printed and social media ......call Ken and learn how.
