Throw out the roast, live 25 more years

Online Publishing and Marketing

"Honey, throw out the roast,
we're going vegetarian!"
Editor's Note:  Following is the report of one of our star writers, Andrew Scholberg, who represented Cancer Defeated at the 5th Evidence-based Complementary & Alternative Cancer Conference held recently in West Palm Beach, Florida. The conference is sponsored by the Annie Appleseed Project, a nonprofit group that challenges conventional cancer treatment and seek alternatives.
    One of Dr. Keith Block's patients with metastasized prostate cancer called his wife after his initial consultation. He told her, "Honey, throw out the roast. We're going vegetarian!" She did, and he's still alive 25 years later.
     Keith Block, M.D., is one of the world's leading integrative cancer doctors. He related this story at the 2012 Complementary & Alternative Cancer Conference, where he was the keynote speaker.
     Another patient came to Dr Block with metastasized kidney cancer. The doctor he'd been seeing had given him one month to live. He's alive 22 years later and free of disease. And Dr. Block says he actually looks younger today than he did 22 years ago! Keep reading to find out how Dr. Block brings about these remarkable cures. . .
Continued below. . .


You've got to watch this
    I recently came across what I believe is one of the most promising cancer advancements of the past 30 years.
    A neurochemist developed it over the course of 20 years. Already several major studies (on over 10,000 patients combined) have verified its accuracy. The FDA has even approved it.
    But, strangely, this cancer discovery has been kept almost completely quiet. (The reason why made me furious -- I bet you'll feel the same way.)
    I just finished watching this special video alert… It's got everything you need to know about this medical development.
    You've got to watch it now...

    A woman with inoperable pancreatic cancer was given three months to live. Her doctor told her, "We have no treatment for you." She went to Dr. Block's clinic and is now a long-term survivor.
      Dr. Block has many other such stories that prove how foolish it is for a doctor to presume to know how long a patient is going to live -- something only God can know.
     The founder of the Annie Appleseed conference, Ann Fonfa, first met Dr. Block in 2005. She introduced him by saying, "We know what Keith Block does is working because we hear from people all over the country."
Doctors use this alternative secret,
but you can't have it
    Dr. Block rejects the notion that a cancer doctor should use only conventional treatments or only natural remedies. Rather, he combines the best of both. He uses chemo sensitivity testing, designed to match a patient's cancer cells with the specific chemo drug that's most likely to kill the strain of cancer the patient has.  He only uses chemo when the test indicates that a chemo drug will be effective against that cancer.
     Ann Fonfa pointed out that some conventional cancer doctors are well aware of the value of the chemo sensitivity test, yet they withhold it from their patients! She found out about that by accident from a doctor from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center who attended one of her conferences.
     This doctor told the audience that when he got colon cancer his fellow doctors at Sloan-Kettering gave him a chemo sensitivity test to find the best treatment. But he said the same doctors tell all their patients that "chemo sensitivity testing doesn't work." This dishonesty, hypocrisy, and greed is par for the course in the cancer treatment racket.
     But Dr. Block's clinic is different. His sole focus is to give his patients therapies that will actually help them get rid of their cancer. And he has put just about everything needed to beat cancer under one roof.
The six key factors in treating cancer
    The treatment plan at Dr. Block's clinic focuses on a few key factors, and he named six: the eating plan, the mind-spirit connection, physical care, nutrition, fitness, and attitude. The treatment is individualized, not one-size-fits-all.
    The first thing you see when you enter Dr. Block's clinic is the kitchen. And that's no accident because he regards food as either a help or a hindrance in getting rid of cancer. Eating the wrong foods -- like sugar, bad fats, and junk food -- will feed cancer. But a solid eating plan that includes a good variety of vegetables helps cure cancer.
    He recommends a colorful variety ("rainbow") of vegetables, whole cereal grains, and mostly plant-based proteins. He offers his patients cooking classes, which he says are fundamental and basic for medical care.
      Inflammation is a common problem that can lead to or aggravate cancer. In fact, inflammation more than doubles the mortality from cancer. Yet conventional doctors don't even test for it. Dr. Block does, and he prescribes a treatment plan that reduces inflammation.
    Correcting the ratio of bad fats to good fats is one way to reduce inflammation. Dr. Block said that omega 6 fats can drive up inflammation. The typical American has a ratio of 20 to one of bad fats to good fats (omega 3). Kids may have a ratio of 40 or 45 to one. A ratio of two to one or one to one is ideal, he said. He pointed out that cutting dietary fat lowered the risk of breast cancer recurrence 24 percent.
     Sleep is "super relevant" for health and especially for cancer patients, according to Dr. Block. Being exposed to light while sleeping increases breast cancer incidence by 22 percent because light suppresses melatonin. Using black shades with velcro to block light from a bedroom can improve the quality of sleep, he said.
Air travel industry would be shut down
if it had a record like the cancer industry
    Dr. Block posed the question, "Why are we losing the war on cancer, which costs America $225 billion a year?" He said you could fill 12 jumbo jets with the Americans who will get diagnosed with cancer today -- and another 12 jumbo jets tomorrow and the next day and the next. That's bad enough. But he said the number of people dying of cancer each day would fill three or four jumbo jets. He observed that "the FAA would shut down all flights if the prognosis for flight safety were that bad!"
     We're losing the war on cancer, Dr. Block declared, because "our system is topsy turvy" and because "there's no foundation for true prevention." Screening procedures aren't prevention because they only catch disease -- early, one hopes. But even catching it early is too late when the cancer could've been prevented in the first place.
    Dr. Block, who has seen over 18,000 patients, declared, "People don't die from cancer. They die from complications and consequences of the disease -- from things that are treatable." He listed sticky blood as an example. Sticky blood can lead to an embolism. But an integrative treatment program can change blood from sticky to slippery, which is much more healthy.
      How important is exercise in a cancer treatment program? Dr. Block declared, "No patient has done a three-mile speed walk and died the next day." That being the case, when someone has cancer it'd be an excellent idea to do a three-mile speed walk every day! Dr. Block wants all of his patients to get moving. And he even has a treadmill next to the chemo suites at his clinic.
      Dr. Block often treats his patients while they're exercising. For example, he can give a chemo drip by IV while a patient is doing yoga.
This doctor follows his own advice
    Dr. Block practices what he preaches about exercise. His favorite hobby is cold-water surfing. Believe it or not, he surfs the waves of Lake Michigan during the cold, windy Chicago winters. He has also surfed the waves off the shores of Alaska, and he even surfed 1,000 feet from glaciers in Antarctica!
    Of course, few cancer patients will follow him in that extreme hobby. But just about all cancer patients can walk three to five hours per week. For those who like to ride a bike, Dr. Block recommends 30 minutes of cycling per day.
      Dr. Block is the editor-in-chief of Integrative Cancer Therapies and the author of Life Over Cancer. For years, the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment was located in Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He recently moved his clinic to the adjacent suburb of Skokie.
Doctor apologized for not listening
    The next presentation was a panel discussion of long-term cancer survivors. Moderator Julia Chiappetta found her breast cancer herself. She'd formed the habit of checking herself for cancer, and she felt her tumor.
    But when she first saw a doctor about her concern, he gave her a mammogram, which was negative, and told her not to worry about it. She pleaded with him to do a biopsy because she could feel something wasn't right. The doctor had to apologize to her when the biopsy came back positive for stage 2 breast cancer. He promised to listen to his patients better in the future.
     Julia says mammograms are only about 50 percent accurate. She prefers other cancer detection tools: ultrasound, thermography, and MRIs. To get rid of her cancer, Julia used a natural protocol with no drugs whatsoever, and that worked for her.  For a detailed description of thermography, see our Special Report Breast Cancer Cover-Up.
They used alternatives — and lived
    Panelist Eddie Dutton, the executive director of the South Florida Cancer Association, had stage 4 neck cancer with a cancerous tongue and throat. One doctor gave him four months to live. His doctor gave him the conventional treatment -- surgery, radiation, and chemo.

Correction to previous issue
    The previous issue, #180, was incorrect when it described the beetroot supplement Neo40® Daily as  "sublingual (under the tongue)."  The lozenges should be allowed to dissolve on top of the tongue.  As always, when taking this or any other supplement you should use as directed on the packaging.  We regret the error.

    When Eddie asked the doctor about alternatives, the doctor said, "I don't know anything about it, so I wouldn't recommend it." He decided to use alternatives, including laetrile (apricot seeds), resveratrol, and hawthorne berries. These alternatives helped him get rid of his cancer.
     Panelist Billy Lewter is a prostate cancer survivor. He'd decided to get surgery but changed his mind in favor of alternatives. His doctor was shocked and offended upon learning that Billy wasn't going to have surgery. He shook Billy by the shoulders and said, "You're playing Russian roulette! You have 12 months to live."
    Billy sought treatment at the Hippocrates Health Institute, a Florida clinic. Later he went to Germany for cancer treatment at the late Dr. Hans Nieper's clinic in Hanover. Dr. Nieper gave him Venus fly trap extract and other therapies. The doctor who once told him "you have 12 months to live" was dead wrong.
     Billy has survived for 19 years without conventional treatment. Unfortunately he was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, though he's not a smoker. He hopes to beat that, too.
The doctor was talking through his hat
    Panelist Florence Ferreira learned she had cancer 12 years ago. Like Julia, she found it herself despite a mammogram that was negative. Her doctor gave her "six months to live." She never believed him. She had a sense that he was talking through his hat.
     To outlive her doctor's death sentence, she used both conventional and alternative therapies. For her, this integrative approach has worked. But two years ago she had a setback. In September of 2010 she learned about two tumors growing in her spine, pinching the nerves going to her legs. This caused intense pain. She couldn't sleep at night. She was screaming. Steroids didn't help. When the pain kept on increasing she went on morphine.
     Dr. Martin Dayton of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, helped her get through the crisis. Florence calls him a "great doctor."
     To get rid of the tumors, she concluded that she needed extreme hyperthermia -- a treatment that's only available in Germany. So she got her passport, flew to Germany, and checked into the clinic of one of Germany's leading cancer specialists, Alexander Herzog, M.D. (I've personally interviewed Dr. Herzog and toured his clinic as well as the other top clinics in Germany. For more information, check out our Special Report German Cancer Breakthrough.)
    Florence needed wheelchair service to make it to Dr. Herzog's clinic. She had hardly slept for months. She was swollen just about everywhere. She had local hyperthermia on her spine the very first day, which gave her immediate relief. "It was pretty amazing," she said. On the third day Dr. Herzog gave her extreme whole body hyperthermia in which her core temperature was heated to 42 degrees Celsius (107.6 degrees Fahrenheit) for four hours under sedation. Healthy cells can take this kind of heat for four hours, but cancer cells can't.
Florence came back to America dancing and jumping!
    She said, "I came back to America walking, dancing, and jumping." Florence's oncologist couldn't believe it. Instead of looking into the German treatments he told her, "It HAS to be the placebo effect." What an ignorant remark!
     From the time Cancer Defeated first started in 2006, we've repeatedly and forcefully recommended hyperthermia. It's a treatment every cancer patient and everyone who might become a cancer patient (in other words, everybody) should know about. The best source of information is German Cancer Breakthrough.

World's #1 Publisher of Information About Alternative Cancer Treatments

    The youngest panelist, Johnny Cathcard, was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 12. He started getting headaches in sixth grade, and they became worse in seventh grade. After an MRI, a doctor told his parents, "My gosh, your son has a fist-sized tumor in his brain. We've got to cut it out now!" The next morning he was on the operating table.
    After surgery, he got heavy doses of conventional treatments, including a "super dose of chemo" 11 years ago at Sloan-Kettering. The side effects were severe, including some damage to his hearing.
     Johnny's high school cross country coach once told him, "When you get to the end of what you can do, that's where faith begins." And Johnny holds onto those words as a metaphor for life. He says "bad things often happen, but life is all about how we deal with them. Life isn't meant to be easy, it's just meant to be worth it!"
     Johnny is wise beyond his years. He says faith got him through his many health crises: faith that tomorrow will come, faith that there will be a future, faith that he's going to get to the other side.
     The panel also included Jennifer Rozman, who became a full-time caregiver when her mother was dying of breast cancer. That experience revealed her mission in life: to help people be proactive with health. She started a juicing company and brings juice to people's homes. She teaches others that connecting the mind and the body is the path to true health.
     Next issue will feature our concluding report on Anne Fonfa's excellent conference.

Winston-Salem State 4 - Bowie State 1 (SOFTBALL SEMIFINAL)


(PETERSBURG, Va. - April 20, 2012) Once the Winston-Salem Rams got the lead, there was little debate who was going to get the ball.

It didn’t matter that Brittany Lane had just come off a 13-inning gem only two hours before. Her team ahead entering the third inning, Lane got the call.

And that was it.

Lane earned her second win of the day – she also picked up a save in the Rams’ first game of the day before noon – working five innings in relief as defending CIAA Champion Winston-Salem State punched its return ticket to the championship round after a 4-1 win over Bowie State.

Francesca Edgerton belted a tremendous two-run home run over the left-center field wall to push the Rams (28-17) to a 3-0 lead in the second inning, prompting Lane’s return to the hill in relief of starter Monet Daly, who worked two scoreless innings to start the game.

Lane, who finished the day having worked a staggering 20 innings, earned the victory in a thrilling 4-3 13-inning affair with Chowan in an elimination game just hours before taking on Bowie State, which lost for the second time in two games on Friday.
Bowie State's Haley Snyder and Kiara Washington led the Lady Bulldogs with a pair of hits each.  Haley Flint took the loss (5-6), lasting only one and a third innings and gave up three hits and three runs.
The loss ends Bowie State's season at 20-16.

VIRGINIA STATE NIPS BOWIE STATE 1-0 IN SOFTBALL SEMIFINALS




(PETERSBURG, Va. – April 20, 2012)  A Jamisha Smith sacrifice fly to left field in the top of the second inning scored Virginia State pinch runner D'Auna Noggin from third to give all the Lady Trojans needed to top Bowie State 1-0 in the CIAA winner's bracket semifinals.  BSU's Lady Bulldogs were held to three hits while the Lady Trojans tallied eight hits.

Endya Bailey went 2-for-3 to pace Virginia State and Jessica Mattia picked up the pitching victory.  Mattia struck out six and snared a line drive back to the pitching circle to close out the bottom of the 7th inning Bowie State threat.

Mariela Hernandez (7-7) took the loss for Bowie State.  Justine Smith, Cara Nance and Amanda Ray recorded one hit each in the setback. 

The Lady Bulldogs will face the Lady Rams of Winston-Salem State at 5:30 pm today.  WSSU’s Lady Rams won a 13 inning loser’s bracket marathon, defeating Chowan 4-3.

Bowie State (20-14) chased Winston-Salem State starter Yasmin Lee (11-10) after four innings, then ripped All-CIAA pitcher Brittany Lane for five runs – four earned – on five hits in three innings.

Bowie State starter Shelby Snyder (8-3) allowed just one run on only three hits in the complete game effort.

The Lady Bulldogs will play Northern Division No. 3 seed Virginia State in the tournament’s semifinals at 12:30 p.m. on Friday on the campus of Virginia State. Winston-Salem State (25-17) will take on Virginia Union at 10 a.m. on Friday at the Petersburg Sports Complex.

5 Simple Steps for Achieving Any Goal
If you're not happy with your body then your workouts have lost focus.

What is your immediate goal?

If you don't have a ready answer then chances are good that your motivation is low and it has resulted in a lack of results.

I know from firsthand experience that operating without a goal will get you nowhere. Sure, you may still be exercising regularly and eating mindfully but without that concrete goal your efforts will yield little results.

1. Setting your goal 

You want to be in "better shape" but that's so vague. Dig deeper.

What specifically do you wish you had now that you don't?
  • To drop 3 dress sizes.
  • To lose 2 inches of arm fat jiggle.
  • To melt 4 inches from your waist.
  • To be able to run 3 miles without stopping.
2. Define your timeline 

Now that you've determined exactly what part of your body isn't up to par, tie that goal in with a specific timeline. When you have a timeline to measure your progress against, you'll find that achieving your goal becomes an easier process.
  • To drop 3 dress sizes by August 20th vacation.
  • To lose 2 inches of arm fat jiggle by October 13th wedding.
  • To melt 4 inches from your waist by July 7th pool party.
  • To be able to run 3 miles without stopping by June 16th city 5k.
3. Name your prize 

It's time to take your motivation to the next level. Now that your specific goal is set and your timeline is clearly defined, let's add a prize that you'll receive once you've accomplished your goal. This prize shouldn't be anything related to your unhealthy habits – so no junk food or extra large meals. Make the prize an item that will reinforce your slimmer body, like a nice piece of clothing.
  • A couple new outfits for your August vacation.
  • A sleeveless dress for the October wedding.
  • A new swimsuit for your July pool party.
  • A new pair of running shoes for your June 5k.
4. Picture it 

You know what you want, when you want it by, and the reward you'll get by achieving it. Now spend time picturing your end goal. Find a comfortable, quiet corner, close your eyes and see a mental movie – starring yourself – enjoying your reward with your new and improved body. Play your mental success movie several times throughout the day.
  • See yourself enjoying an afternoon of your vacation, wearing your new clothes with confidence.
  • Imagine how you'll feel walking down the aisle baring your toned arms.
  • See yourself lounging by the pool in your swimsuit, carefree and happy.
  • Imagine the feeling of accomplishment you'll feel as you cross the finish line.
5. Recipe for success 

The steps that you've taken above have prepared you to mentally take on the challenge of motivating yourself through this transformation process. All that remains is a solid exercise and nutrition plan to push you through to your new body.

This is where I come in.

I'm fanatical about propelling each and every one of my clients through their own personal body transformation.

Call or email today and I'll get you started on a program that will make your goals a reality.
Advanced Article on Slow vs. Fast Barbbell Squat Training
By Morrissey MC, Harman EA, Frykman PN, Han KH (1998), Early phase differential effects of slow and fast barbell squat training.
To examine the importance of resistance training movement speed, two groups of women (24 years old, +/- 4 years, 5 ft. 4 in. tall +/- 2 in., 130 lbs. weight +/- 15 lbs.) squatted repeatedly at 1) 2 seconds up, 2 seconds down (slow); or 2) 1 second up, 1 second down (fast), doing three warm-up sets and three eight-repetition maximum sets, three times per week for 7 weeks. Tests included force platform and video analysis of the vertical jump, long jump, and maximum squat, and isometric and isokinetic knee extensor testing at speeds from 25 to 125 deg/sec.
The groups improved similarly in many variables with training but also showed some differences. In the long jump, the fast group was superior in numerous variables including knee peak velocity and total-body vertical and absolute power. In the vertical jump, fast training affected the ankle and hip more (e.g., average power), and slow training mostly affected the knee (average torque). In isokinetic testing, the fast group improved strength most at the faster velocities, while the slow group strength changes were consistent across the velocities tested. Although both slow and fast training improved performance, faster training showed some advantages in quantity and magnitude of training effects.
Super Soup
Soup is a wonderful meal to enjoy when you're focused on losing weight – with a few guidelines.
  1. Never choose soups that have a cream base. These are filled with more calories and fat than you need.
  2. Avoid soups that have noodles or rice.
  3. Make sure that your soup has a lean source of protein, such as lean turkey or chicken breast. Try the Turkey & Veggie Soup recipe below.
