Chowan Volleyball Top Bowie State 25-9, 25-8 and 25-15


CHOWAN VOLLEYBALL BLOWS PAST BOWIE STATE 3-0


MURFREESBORO, N.C. -- The Bowie State University volleyball team didn’t have the same success as the BSU football team one day earlier, falling short as Chowan University won the CIAA Northern Division match, 3-0, on Sunday afternoon at the Hawks’ Helms Center.

The Lady Bulldogs (3-17 overall, 1-10 CIAA, 0-4 CIAA North) never got on track against the defending CIAA Champion Hawks, losing in straight sets 25-9, 25-8 and 25-15.  Freshman Yaje Ngundam led Bowie State with four kills and junior Kasi Eisenzimmer added three kills in the loss. Eisenzimmer tied for match-high dig honors with 12.

Karina Monroe paced Chowan with 14 kills on 22 attacks and Nikira Fults tallied 13 kills on 18 attacks. Monroe led the Hawks with three service aces and Cindy Ehrich led the Hawks with a dozen digs.
 
The Lady Bulldogs take on CIAA Northern Division foe Elizabeth City State on Monday (10/8) at 6 pm in ECSU’s Vaughn Center.

BROWN LATE GAME JAUNT LIFTS BOWIE STATE TO 35-31 ROAD WIN AT CHOWAN


BROWN LATE GAME JAUNT LIFTS BOWIE STATE TO 35-31 ROAD WIN AT CHOWAN


MURFREESBORO, N.C. – Chowan scored 15 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, but Bowie State redshirt sophomore Keith Brown rushed for a 57 yard touchdown to lift the Bulldogs to a thrilling 35-31 victory against the Hawks.

Brown finished the night with a game and career-high 132 rushing yards and two touchdowns to lead Bowie State. The victory snaps a two-game losing streak and improves the Bulldogs record to 4-2 (1-2 CIAA).

Chowan missed a great opportunity score early but fumbled the ball deep in the Bulldogs territory on the Hawks’ opening drive. Bowie State was unable to capitalize and turned the ball back over to Chowan on downs.

The Hawks’ third red zone opportunity finally resulted in positive result.  After two unsuccessful Hawks red zone attempts, quarterback Cameron Stover rushed for an 8-yard touchdown with 1:20 left in the first quarter for the games’ first six points.  Alex Noboa added the extra point to give Chowan a 7-0 advantage.  Stover completed 8-of-12 first quarter passes for 108 yards, but was intercepted once by BSU redshirt freshman Antoine Young.

Bowie State quickly responded with 14:53 left in the second quarter when redshirt sophomore Jared Johnston flipped a short 5-yard pass to sophomore Khari Lee for six Bulldogs’ points. Redshirt sophomore Mario Diaz-Aviles converted the extra point to tie the game at 7-7.

Bulldogs junior Corwin Acker provided a second quarter spark with two huge runs of 46 and 24 yards that put Bowie State in the Hawks red zone. Sophomore Keith Brown rushed for a 4-yard touchdown run to give Bowie State a 14-7 lead at the 10:26 mark of the second quarter.

The Bowie State defense pressured Stover in the first half, sacking him four times. Sophomores Oladimeji Layeni and Eric Walters recorded three and one first half sack respectively.

Bowie State’s Johnston scampered around the right end for a 49 yard touchdown run on the Bulldogs’ first play from scrimmage to open the third quarter. The Diaz-Aviles extra point gave Bowie State a 21-7 cushion

With 12:13 left in the third quarter, Noboa booted a 27 yard field goal to trim the Chowan deficit to 21-10.

The Bulldogs extended their lead to 28-7 following a 1-yard rush up the middle by Johnston with 5:58 to play in the third, capping off an 11-play, 81 yard drive.

An exciting 40-yard reception by Antjuan Randall put the Hawks in Bulldogs territory at the 15 yard line. Two plays later, JR Williams found paydirt from 5-yards out. Chowan went for two, but the conversion was picked off in the end zone, setting the score at 28-16.

Chowan (3-3, 2-1 CIAA) inched closer at the 13:53 mark of the final quarter, following a 1-yard run by Adrian Ferns. Noboa added the extra point, cutting the Bowie State lead to 28-23.

Faced with a fourth and 12, Stover connected with Randall for a 26 yard gain and crucial first down. Stover hit Damien Ellis for a 7-yard touchdown with 6:45 remaining. Stover found Randall for the two-point conversion, putting the Hawks back in front at 31-28.

Bowie State had one more opportunity with 2:43 remaining in the game. Faced with a third and three from the Chowan 43 yard line, Brown rumbled 57 yards for a Bulldogs touchdown, shifting the advantage back to Bowie State at 35-31 with 33 seconds left to play.

Johnston led Bowie State with 164 passing yards, completing 16-of-29 passes. Senior Douglas McNeil, III led BSU with 54 reception yards and Lee added 50 yards. Young and Walters were Bowie State’s top defenders with 11 tackles each.

Stover threw for a game-high 311 yards, completing 22-of-33 passes and Ryan Nolan was his leading target with 130 reception yards on nine catches.

The Bulldogs will entertain the Trojans of Virginia State University for Homecoming 2012 next Saturday (October 13th). Kickoff is set for 1 pm in BSU’s Bulldogs Stadium.

Dirty mouth may double danger of pancreatic cancer

Cancer Defeated Publications

Oral Bacteria May Double
Your Risk of Pancreatic Cancer


    The last few years have brought a rash of studies suggesting periodontal (gum) disease is related to other serious diseases. It's long been known that people with diseased gums are at higher risk of heart disease.

    Now comes a study indicating gum disease is also linked to cancer — specifically, pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is extremely deadly. Very few patients survive more than a year following diagnosis (if they follow conventional treatments). And pancreatic cancer is very difficult to detect. At the very least, this new finding may help with early detection. Keep reading and I'll give you the details...

Continued below. . .


There's a Thief Silently Wiping
Away Your Memory
    Scientists used to think of memory as an area of the brain that acts like a "warehouse" where past knowledge is stored. But now researchers have found that no single location in your brain stores all of your memories. Instead, billions of brain cells retrieve your memories by sending out trillions of signals to communicate with other brain cells.

    But as cells age, this communication breaks down—that's the reason you start forgetting where you put your keys or glasses or the name of an acquaintance.

    So what's causing the breakdown?

    Free radicals...

    Those are the nasty molecules that attack your cells through oxidation, stealing electrons like a thief.

    Fortunately, there's a "super-nutrient" that's been discovered that attacks free radicals like nothing we've ever seen—100 times stronger than vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals.

    Learn how to supercharge your brain and protect your memory...


    The study of blood samples from more than 800 European adults was published in the journal Gut. The researchers found that people with high levels of antibodies for an infectious strain of periodontal bacteria, Porphyromonas gingivalis, were more than twice as likely to have pancreatic cancer as a control group of people who didn't show signs of this gum disease microbe.

    Dominique Michaud, a Brown University epidemiologist who co-authored the study, said the increased risk is about the same as that seen in smokers. In his words, "The relative increase in risk from smoking is not much bigger than two. If this is a real effect size of two, then potential impact of this finding is really significant."

    Jacques Izard of the Forsyth Institute and Harvard University is the study's other lead author. He cautions, "This is not an established risk factor. But I feel more confident that there is something going on. It's something we need to understand better."

    In other words — as always — more study is needed. But if you have periodontal disease, don't fool around. Get it treated and be strict with yourself about brushing, flossing and using a Water Pik or similar device.

    The researchers drew the 821 samples in their study from a vast database of more than 500,000 adults in 10 countries. The database contains medical records, health histories and preserved blood samples from this vast group of people.

    The study design included 405 people who developed pancreatic cancer, matched with a control group of demographically similar people who did not. The study controlled for factors like smoking, diabetes and weight.

    One of the most promising findings was that the date of the blood samples preceded the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer by as much as a decade. This means the presence of these bacteria in the mouth could be an early warning of cancer. It also gives strength to the theory that the bacteria somehow cause the cancer. It's certainly not the case that the people got gum disease AFTER their bodies were run down by cancer.

    We can't be sure just yet if these bacteria cause cancer — or how. But it's one more reason, if you need one, to take care of your teeth and gums.

Are you eating this "laundry detergent" ingredient?


There’s no way you’d sit down and drink laundry detergent in your pursuit of “good health,” right?
And yet, for the millions of men and women who take or consider taking prescription osteoporosis drugs, they have no idea that hidden in that little pill is an ingredient also used in common laundry detergents.
Men and women with serious problems are being fed the same thing used to wash clothing!
And that’s just one of the nasty “secrets” most people don’t know about prescription osteoporosis drugs.
Researchers have discovered that osteoporosis medicines can actually make bones more fragile. So while pharmaceutical companies continue marketing their products as “life savers,” these drugs can end up making the problem even worse.
And they know it. In fact, it was revealed that the maker of one very popular osteoporosis drug socked away $48 million dollars to deal with future lawsuits related to the product.
I’m writing to tell you about something new that can help you strengthen your bones, in just 15 minutes per day.
It’s not a drug, it’s not a diet. And it’s not something you’ll ever hear the pharmaceutical companies discuss.
They’d rather you didn’t find out about this... because it’s cheap... and they can’t patent it!
The best part about this is you can start benefiting from it just minutes from now. Osteoporosis is serious. And osteoporosis is scary.
But now there is a way to beat it without putting yourself at risk.
P.S. One in 3 women over the age of 50 will fracture a hip, wrist or spine because of osteoporosis. The same is true for 1 in 12 men.
The worst part is that the majority of the people who suffer this fate have no idea they have a problem, until it’s too late.
Don’t let that be your story. Take control and get on the path to stronger bones, fast.

The Secret of People Who Don't Get Cancer


The secret to curing cancer:
You've been throwing it in the trash!
    In 1921, a British doctor discovered that a remote tribal people was almost totally cancer-free. But when members of this tribe move away from their native land and change their diet, they get cancer just like anyone else.

    It's all thanks to a food most of us throw away as waste!

    Click here now and watch a new video presentation about this cancer breakthrough.

    One cancer expert calls this overlooked food "the key to curing AND preventing cancer"—and you can benefit NOW -- without going to a doctor or buying expensive supplements.

    This little throwaway food tastes great. Bill Clinton (of all people) eats it regularly, and so can you.

Deadly pregnancy mistake doubles breast cancer risk

Cancer Defeated Publications

Did Your Ob/Gyn Warn You About This
Cancer-Causing Pregnancy Mistake?


It may double or triple your breast cancer risk!
By Carol Parks, Contributing Editor
    Here's a striking cancer-predictor that warns you years and even decades before the fact…

    Scientists are now warning that this pregnancy mistake can lead to not only direct pregnancy complications but also an increased risk of breast cancer… and several other types of reproductive-related cancers.

    A recent study suggests that if you make this mistake during pregnancy, you subject yourself and your child to greatly increased cancer risks. Let me explain…

Continued below. . .


Breast Cancer Breakthrough BANNED!
U.S. Government Blocks Release
of Doctor's Life-Saving Book
    A mammoth discovery is wiping out most breast tumors better than anything seen yet in modern medicine. It makes surgery, radiation and chemotherapy look like something from the Dark Ages.

    A Cornell-educated doctor followed more than 25 years of case studies and PROVED this treatment can cure breast cancer. With the discovery I'm going to tell you about, almost every woman makes it and without losing a breast to surgery or taking any toxic chemicals. Even those with late stage cancer!

    You've got to include this treatment if you want to have any REAL hope of defeating breast cancer. Click here now and watch a new video presentation about this important discovery…


    Delivering a high birth weight baby more than DOUBLES your risk of breast cancer! This is now known to be an independent risk factor — that is, independent of other breast cancer risk factors.1

    What do they consider a high birth weight baby?

    In a study performed at the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston, the researchers considered babies above 8.25 pounds as "high birth weight".

    They found that breast cancer risk was 2½ times higher in women whose baby's birth weight was in the top quintile, compared with birth weights in the lower quintiles. (A quintile is 20% of the total.)

    Study leader Dr. Radek Bukowski explains it this way… "This means they have high levels of estrogen, low levels of anti-estrogen and the presence of free insulin-like growth factors associated with breast cancer development and progression."

    He suggests that although women are not believed to be able to alter their pregnancy hormones, they can take steps to boost their overall protection from breast cancer. Read on, because I'll reveal some protective strategies you can engage in even if giving birth is ancient history for you.
These dangerous hormones hang around for LIFE!
    Recent animal studies suggest that breast stem cells are involved in breast cancer development. These stem cells can increase or decrease their numbers depending on their exposure to hormones, including pregnancy-related ones. And breast stem cells from pregnancy maintain a sort of "memory" of earlier hormone exposure.

    As a result, the effects of higher hormone levels don't just disappear after pregnancy. They pretty much hang around for life, as certain body cells "remember" their former hormone exposure.

    This might explain the boosted risk of breast cancer long after pregnancy. And especially so in women who deliver large babies. Apparently these pregnancy hormones create some kind of long-term effect that can lead to breast cancer later.
What if YOU were a large baby?
    To cut to the chase… Yes, if you were a high birth weight baby, unfortunately you are at a higher rate of breast cancer before age 50, before menopause.

    Some things you have no control over. And one of those is what your mother did or didn't do while she was pregnant with you. But as with the mother, so with the child: There are ways to mitigate your risk if you were a big baby, so stick with me for a few minutes.

    Also like the mother, scientists think the baby's increased danger may be related to hormones in the fetal environment.

    A baby is exposed during pregnancy to high levels of anabolic hormones — estrogen and progesterone, growth hormone, and insulin-like growth factors I and II. Any or all of these can affect the baby's mammary cells and how they proliferate, imprint, and reprogram.

    Exposure to high levels of these growth factors can result in a large baby, and greater cancer risk later in life.

    This association between high birth weight and breast cancer risk was greater in women who developed estrogen-receptor positive and progesterone-receptor positive breast cancer.

    What's more, those who were large at birth also had higher adult rates of lymphatic cancer (17% increase) and digestive cancers (a 13% increase) including stomach, colorectal and pancreatic.

    As you might surmise, low birth weight was associated with less incidence of breast cancer among women under age 50 (pre-menopausal).
The hidden role of the mother's pre-pregnancy weight
    Another recent study shows how important the mother's pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index (BMI) as well as pregnancy weight gain are, as factors that predict their baby's birth weight.2

    While the purpose of the study was to see if high birth weight was predictive of adult weight problems and obesity (and it was), it's not too big a stretch to suggest that the resulting obesity could be a step toward cancer.

    Researchers in Norway did a population-based study where they assessed 58,383 pregnant women over a seven year period from 2000 and 2007. They wanted to find out if there was an association between the mothers' pre-pregnant BMI and weight change during pregnancy — compared to their baby's birth weight.

    What they found is:
  • Babies' birth weight corresponded to maternal pre-pregnant BMI
  • Babies' birth weight also corresponded to mother's pregnancy weight gain.
    In other words, the higher the mother's weight and BMI prior to pregnancy, and the more she gained during pregnancy, the higher her baby's birth weight was.

    In fact, every increase of 2.2 pounds in pre-pregnancy BMI spiked birth weight by .05 pounds. It doesn't sound like much, but it can sure add up.

    Let's put some feet to those numbers. For example, if you're 20 pounds overweight when you become pregnant, you'll likely have a baby weighing one whole extra pound, which is a lot for a tiny baby. Suppose your baby would have been in the 7 to 7.5 pound range. Now you're talking about a baby who just jumped into the heavy-weight baby range.
The "have a bigger baby" movement
of 30 years ago (revisited)
    Interestingly, there was a time in the 1980s when women advocated that having bigger babies was a positive thing. (And so it probably was, compared to having a three-pound baby. But it's wise to seek the middle ground.) Influenced by this movement, many women rejected the recommended 25 to 35-pound weight gain and felt free to gain 40 and even 50 pounds or more.

    Those who do that have babies who are, essentially, obese at birth. Not a good way to start life.

    The authors of this study encourage women to get to a healthy weight before conception, and stick to a low-carb diet and moderate weight gain during pregnancy, avoiding the extremes.
Pregnancy weight gain can TRIPLE
your risk of breast cancer
    Women who did gain more than 50 pounds during pregnancy, and failed to lose it after their baby's birth, tripled their risk of breast cancer, post-menopause. Those gaining more than 40 pounds boosted their risk by 40 percent.

    This was discovered by researchers at the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC., based on a study of 27,000 breast cancer patients in Finland.3

    One of the study's investigators explains, "Significant weight gain during pregnancy may cause changes in breast tissue that increase susceptibility to breast cancer in later life — roughly equivalent to the risk of post-menopausal obesity."

    As in the study reviewed at the top of this article, the Georgetown scientists believe that higher blood levels of estrogen during pregnancy fuel abnormal cell growth that can become malignant many years later.

    Each 2.2-pound increase in pregnancy weight gain boosted breast cancer risk by 3.9 percent (adjusted for pre-pregnancy BMI). However, women who stay within the "normal" range of a 25 to 35 pound weight gain do not experience a risk increase for either premenopausal or postmenopausal breast cancer.

    Incidentally, if you're reading this during your child-bearing years, you may be interested to know that breast-feeding your baby and having more than one child are protective against breast cancer.
You can't turn the clock back, but…
Here are 7 things you can STILL do to reduce your risk
    If you were a high birth weight baby — or had a high birth weight baby — it is more urgent than ever (based on this emerging research) to change what you can still change to stack the deck in your favor.

    I delivered both an 8lb 10oz and a 12lb 12 oz baby, so the news I just told you scared me. If you're in the same boat, you will definitely want to do as much as possible to mitigate your risk factors, including the seven steps below.

    Some of these I'm sure you've heard before, but maybe haven't implemented. Others may be new ideas to you. All of them have merit, so pick one or two and get started today. Then gradually add more after you're used to the first couple.
  1. Eat a diet composed almost entirely of vegetables, fruits, and non-GMO organic meats. Skip the breads, desserts, soda, etc. If you already have the pregnancy weight gain or large baby strike against you, you cannot afford to play around with foods that spike your blood sugar, lead to further weight gain, and are associated with increased cancer risk.

    Studies show that women with a waist circumference of over 34 inches were at a 30 percent higher risk of post-menopausal breast cancer than women with waist measurements under 28 inches.

    What's more, scientists believe that estrogens are produced within belly fat. So this is an important consideration. Many people drop weight automatically just by forsaking soda, chips, and dessert. Once you're three weeks in, you won't miss these things nearly as much as you think you will.
  2. The flip side of the coin is to get up and get moving. This isn't rocket science. You've heard it before. Exercise helps control your weight, stimulates your immune system, puts you in a good mood, relieves stress, and lowers many dangerous health markers (blood pressure and triglycerides come to mind). And too many other things to name here.
  3. Get plenty of vitamin D… best achieved by about 15 minutes out in the sun every day. The ideal amount depends on the time of year, the time of day (late afternoon sun is less intense), how far north you live, and your skin type. You will receive little vitamin D from the sun from September to April in the northern hemisphere (especially north of the Chicago/Detroit latitude). But at noon in July you can burn quickly. So use your judgment. During the winter months, up north, you will probably be forced to supplement with vitamin D3 (not D2). Vitamin D3 is proven to protect you from many different kinds of cancer.

    It is prudent to have your vitamin D levels measured to ensure you don't get above the 100 level, if you are getting your D3 through supplementation. This is rare, but everyone absorbs vitamin D differently, so a word to the wise.

    However, your skin knows when to stop production, so you needn't worry about D from the sun. There's no way to overdose on that.
  4. Aim to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep per night. Sleep is protective against cancer. Shut off the computer and TV and get some sleep. You'll feel more alert the next day too, a nice side benefit.
  5. Reconsider the advice you'll be hearing throughout October from the American Cancer Society, related to their National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and National Mammography Day.

    Skip the mammogram, and instead get a baseline thermogram now so you can easily observe whether new or dangerous changes are taking place.

    Radiation is a known risk factor for breast cancer. If you already know you have a birth-weight related risk factor, why take on additional known risks from mammogram X-rays?

    Incidentally, you'll want to consider other radiation risks too, at the dentist, the airport, and via various medical procedures.
  6. Remove any root canals you have. They are a known risk factor for many cancers. Strikingly, 97 percent of all terminal breast cancer patients have one or more root canals.

    If you don't have any, care for your teeth like your life depends on it. That will help you avoid what your dentist will term a "need" for a root canal. You know what they say about an ounce of prevention…
  7. Limit alcohol consumption to two or three drinks per week, at most, or better yet -- abstain totally. Multiple drinks daily are associated with increased breast cancer risk.
    We all recognize that hindsight is 20:20. If you know and love young ladies who will take advice, this is critical for their future. So pass it on.

    But if you can't turn back the clock, today is the best time to start aggressively implementing these seven strategies to lower your risk of the cancer 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with this year. Especially if you gave birth to a high birth weight baby, or you were one.
