Lifesaver: Soy Increases Lung Cancer Survival
This study of 444 women with lung cancer is the first to show that eating more soy food before being diagnosed with lung cancer is associated with better overall survival. 50% of the women who ate 2oz or less of soy a day were still alive after a year, while 60% of those who ate 4oz or more were. This study shows the preventative value of including soy in your diet. (J Clin Oncol March 2013;doi:10.1200/JCO.2012.43.0942).
Antioxidants: Slowing the Aging Process
In theory, the more antioxidants you take in, the slower you age. Antioxidants are powerful nutrients that eliminate free radicals. A free radical is a molecule that has an unpaired electron, so it tries to grab an electron from another molecule, which damages DNA and cell membranes. Free radicals are behind the aging process and more than sixty diseases, including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, cataracts, and Alzheimer's. They are caused by the body's own reactions and by outside sources, like sunlight, X-rays, chemicals and poor diet.
However you look at it, the discovery of antioxidants is one of the most important break throughs for modern life. They prevent and treat diseases of all kinds and are of particular value to the aged who are more likely to fall ill from disease. Just don’t forget, the younger you are when you start taking antioxidants, the more likely you are to prevent illnesses and the greater the chances of living a long and healthy life. Truly, antioxidants are amongst the very best anti-aging nutrients. . . . (for the full article, see this month's copy of The Natural Path).
