Stress Management

Philadelphia Spartan Sprint at Citizens Bank Park, September 20, 2014, Sign Up Now for this Reebok S
When you're in stressful situations, be they physical, mental, or emotional, your adrenal glands secrete special hormones to help you through the stress. These hormones include epinephrine (also called adrenaline), norepinephrine, and cortisol. They prepare your body to handle stress by speeding up the heart to increase cardiac output, constricting blood vessels to the gut while enlarging those to the muscles, and dilating pupils dilate to give us a better look at whatever we're confronting. They stimulate the liver to release its glucose stores for quick energy. Fat depots are induced to liberate free fatty acids for fuel. Stress hormone release produces a heightened state of awareness which helps us think more clearly and quickly.
The good thing about these hormones is the way they prepare the body to run away from danger. The potential bad effect is that many normal body functions are subverted in order to meet the demands of flight. Under stress, the body requires extra energy in order to meet these demands. Amino acids that are supposed to be used for tissue growth and repair can be burned as one source of energy.
If the stress is emotional rather as well as physical, you have a medical time bomb. With constant stress, there is a constant perversion or re-routing of amino acids. Instead of supplying fresh material to grow hair, make antibodies, and rebuild heart muscle, amino acids are removed from tissues, travel to the liver, then go to muscles to be burned up as flight fuel.
A heart attack in someone under constant stress is more likely to be lethal. Invading bacteria from a cut are less likely to be mopped up by the white blood cells. The immune system is less hardy. Muscle wasting is more likely. People, training hard for athletics, are more likely to tip over into the overtraining syndrome.
What we need is a drug that will encourage our adrenal glands to make more stress hormone when we really need them, but none for the routine occurrences that we perceive as stressful. You will be pleased to know that such a drug is available although it has not been sanctioned by the American Medical Association, released by the Food and Drug Administration, or approved by the surgeon general. The drug is called exercise and you don't need anyone's permission to use it.
Nothing is more effective at reducing stress than a good hard workout today. Often times I will go into the gym roaring like a lion on the inside. Only to be purring like a kitten on my way out.

Simple mineral kills cancer cells within hours

Potent Over-the-Counter Mineral
Kills Cancer Cells in Just Hours

I want to review a potent, fast-acting treatment that – in my opinion – every cancer patient should know about as one of the options to consider.
The treatment is cesium chloride. You do need a doctor for this, it's not a do-it-yourselfer. But from what we can learn, it's such a powerful therapy, it's one of the top reasons for seeking the help of an alternative or integrative practitioner instead of going it alone or trying to talk your conventional doctor into working with you.
It's essential to find the highest quality brand and work with trained practitioners. But if you're willing to do that, you'll find cesium not only kills cancer cells, it also stops cancer metastasis and is known to shrink tumor masses – within weeks. Here's the full story. . .
Continued below…

This Hushed-Up Cure for Heart Disease, Diabetes, Alzheimer's and Cancer Has Been Censored, Banned, and Blacklisted... Until Now!
This Harvard study should have made front page news around the world. It's the kind of news that would have most Americans falling off their sofas... if they ever heard it.
You see, the Harvard researchers behind this study discovered a way to "flip a switch" inside your cells that makes it virtually impossible for any chronic disease to exist in that cell...
...and if you already have diseased cells, you can make them disappear as if they never existed at all.
So would it surprise you if I told you the FDA created laws to block access to this amazing technology? In some cases the laws are so tight, my colleague, Dr. Al Sears is not even allowed to TALK about it.
This hushed-up, breakthrough technology provides a possible CURE for everything from cancer and heart disease, to diabetes and Alzheimer's. And it's available RIGHT NOWBut it never sees the light of day.
Today, Dr. Sears is blowing the whistle on the FDA.

Why this mineral means quick death for cancer cells
Cesium therapy is intended for advanced, fast-growing cancers that have spread significantly or have high fatality rates.
Advocates of cesium therapy believe cesium chloride supplements can raise the pH level of tumor cells to a normal level, as they believe the pH levels inside tumor cells tend to be low, or acidic (a cell's pH is a measure of how acidic or basic it is). By raising the pH level of tumor cells, cesium slows or stops their growth.
Interest in cesium as a cancer therapy first surfaced when it was reported that certain regions of the world had extremely low rates of some types of cancer. These same areas also had a high concentration of alkali metals in their soil.
The areas studied include the homelands of the Hopi Indians of Arizona, the Hunza people of North Pakistan, and the indigenous peoples of Central and South America.
One reason those groups appear to be protected from cancer is the mineral cesium. Not only is it a naturally alkaline element, but cesium is also believed by some to be a natural chemotherapy agent. Its benefits are vastly underappreciated, which is why there's a good chance you won't find it in your standard multivitamin.
Scientists believe cesium affects cancer in four different ways.
    1. It changes the pH level of cancer cells – and leaves the pH of healthy cells untouched. In fact, cesium appears to boost cancer pH levels above 7.5, which is a crucial cutoff point for healthy tissues – meaning the cancer cells die. (A pH of less than 7 is acidic; more than 7 is alkaline.)
    2. Cesium starves cancer cells – because it limits your body’s uptake of glucose, which cancer cells rely on for sustenance. Without glucose, they end up starving to death.
    3. It stops the process of fermentation, the means by which cancer cells metabolize glucose.
    4. It neutralizes the lactic acid that is associated with the uncontrolled multiplying of cancer cells.
In short, cesium chloride addresses what many consider the very nature of cancer cells -- acidity. Cancer cells have lower pH levels because of the lactic acid produced by fermentation. Fermentation (converting glucose) is the primitive way a cancer cell sustains itself. So in terms of stopping the spread of cancer, cesium is one of the best bets out there.
One of the most powerful
alternative therapies available
There were some studies conducted back in the 1980s that showed cesium or cesium chloride therapy led to decreased tumor growth in mice with cancerous tumors, including sarcoma and breast cancer. On the flip side, other animal studies have shown long-term use of cesium can lead to serious blood and neuromuscular side effects – sometimes, even death.
In addition, the risks of cesium use include swelling and inflammation that occur when your immune system attacks dying cancer cells. And long-term use can cause abnormally high levels of cesium in your blood, which may lead to an abnormal heart rhythm. For these reasons, I emphasize the importance of taking cesium only under the guidance of a trained practitioner.
Earlier this year, a woman in Colorado died due to abnormally high cesium levels. She had been taking the supplement orally for a year to treat a breast lump, and the night before she collapsed with a heart attack, her husband had given her an injection of cesium chloride.
I only share this as proof that supplements and alternative treatments are powerful tools in the quest for health. That's why many of them are just as effective as any man-made drug. But at the same time, they must be used carefully.
Use this therapy with caution
You won't be surprised to learn that mainstream medicine doesn't accept cesium therapy as a reliable treatment. They're waiting on more clinical evidence, and they believe it is simply a coincidence that those areas with low cancer rates also had high cesium levels. You may have heard that the Hunza people of Pakistan consume apricot pits, which are high in laetrile. So cesium would not be the only factor in their success at avoiding cancer.
Still, it's worth looking into, as long as you're clear it's not a do-it-yourself treatment. Seek help from a doctor professionally trained in alternative methods. And be aware that not every alternative cancer doctor offers cesium therapy. The doctors we've interviewed (and we've interviewed a great many) all employ a wide range of treatments; they don't rely on just one. Finally – one more thing -- I've read that cesium can lower potassium levels, so ask to be monitored and take supplements if needed.
Be alert to side effects, which include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and sometimes tingling or unusual sensations around the mouth or in your fingertips.
You can get cesium chloride as an oral supplement or in liquid form from most stores that sell dietary supplements.

Prostate Cancer Killed 7 Buddies But One Man Escaped

This Vietnam Vet
Watched 7 Friends Die
of Prostate Cancer…
Then he discovered an
all-natural secret to beat it
— and it saved his life!
The same breakthrough
can save you,
your prostate—and your
sex drive—from a
surgeon’s knife!
Effectiveness confirmed by
an independent researcher
hired by M.D. Andersen
Cancer Center – yet you
won’t hear about it from
your doctor!
     Dear Friend,
     Imagine watching seven of your friends die from prostate cancer and then wondering if you’re going to be the next one facing a death sentence…
     That’s exactly what happened to John S.
     Guys he served with in Vietnam suddenly started dropping like flies from prostate cancer. Seven men from his platoon died of the dreaded disease. And many of them were only in their 50’s!
     Some experts say it’s because soldiers in Vietnam were exposed to high levels of Agent Orange, a toxic jungle defoliant.
     In 2002 John thought his number was up, just like his 7 buddies before him.
     A biopsy of John’s prostate showed 10 out of 12 tissue samples were full of cancer. His Gleason Scores, which show how aggressive the cancer is, were a high 6 and 7.  In his own words…
“I was advised that even with surgery and radiation,
I would need a miracle to survive”
     John got a second opinion and then a third one.  Every doctor told him there was no hope.  But the doctors were wrong. (As you’ll see, they often are when it comes to prostate cancer.) There WAS hope.
     Eighteen months later, John called family and friends with great news: “My ‘terminal’ prostate tumor is shrinking!”
     That’s unheard of with advanced prostate cancer when it’s treated with surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. But John didn’t use any of the treatments his conventional doctors recommended. He figured, why go through hell just to die anyway – the same as 7 of his army buddies?

28 Day Flat Belly Formula (ends today)

First off, I just want to congratulate everyone who secured their spot in my 28 day Flat Belly Formula program (beta group).

If you missed the post from a couple days ago. Here are the details of the program for you...

See, while working with a few of my fitness training clients I stumbled upon a faster way to burn belly fat and to flatten your abs.

So I decided to test out my new fitness discovery with a beta test group. And that's where you come in because I'm only taking on 19 people for this 28 day program and I'm charging a fraction of what I normally charge for my training programs.
  • I'm calling it the "28 Day Flat Belly Formula"
  • The entire program is only going to be 28 days long It's in the name
  • I'm going to provide you with a done for you meal plan crafted to help you increase your metabolism and burn more fat. (This is NOT a diet, it's a 28 day modified meal plan where all you have to do is read it, and eat it.)
  • You'll need to workout with me online 3-5 times per week  during the 28 day program.
  • The workouts will be challenging, even hard at times, but never impossible. And you'll always have motivation and accountability from me via email and phone whenever you need it.
  • Here's the best part... even though we're going to work on burning belly fat and flattening and defining your abs, we're not going to do a single crunch or sit up. (imagine that, a sexy mid section and a flat belly without doing traditional ab exercises).
  • At the end of the 28 days you should see weight loss of 12-19 pounds and flatter, more defined mid section. (you'll probably drop a clothes size or two)
  • The program starts this coming Monday
Now, typically my clients pay around $247/month or more to get personal training from me.

But since this is going to be the first time (beta group) that I try out this program on "non-clients" I'm going to make it FREE for the entire 28 day flat belly training program AND meal plan. After 28 days you will want to continue on your schedule, then its only up to $66 cents per day.

I decided to only take on 19 participants for the beta program, and since sending out the last email, 11 people locked in their spot leaving only 8 spots open.

If you want one of these 8 spots and are ready to burn more fat Flatten your belly starting this Monday then please click here and we'll get you locked into one of the remaining 8 spots. Thanks a bunch

 Like I said, there are only eight spots left for the 28 Day Flat Belly Formula training program that start this Monday so click here to secure one of the remaining 8 spots.

D.C. Divas Tackle Columbus Comets in Critical Division Clash

Click Here To Listen To the Game Live Starting at 5:15pm EST Saturday
Neal Rozendaal

Washington, DC – The first goal for the D.C. Divas every season is to win their division championship and qualify for the playoffs, and 2014 is no different. Their longtime division rivals, the Columbus Comets, come to DC Saturday for a critical WFA matchup.

Even though the Divas lost to the reigning WFA champion Chicago Force last week, 42-27, Divas head coach Alison Fischer was encouraged by how her team played in the absence of starting quarterback Allyson Hamlin. The Divas scrambled to install a Wildcat offense during the bye week, and it yielded 27 points – the most points the Chicago Force have ever surrendered in a regular season WFA game.

“We knew with the athletes we have that the Wildcat package would probably do pretty well,” Coach Fischer said. “The lack of practice time was the biggest challenge, because we didn’t have a whole lot of time to put the new offense in. We had to make some personnel changes, and it’s tough to move folks around to new positions in that short of a time. But the players responded and I liked what I saw, for the most part. Considering what we had to deal with, I think we played pretty well on offense. I thought the Wildcat was effective, and it’s something you’ll probably see more of from us.”

The Divas defense faced a prolific offense and gave a fine account of themselves for the second straight game. In particular, the halftime defensive adjustments have been outstanding, as D.C. has yielded just two second-half touchdowns combined in their last two contests.

“The defense is coming along,” Fischer remarked. “They are playing better in the second half, and one of our coaching challenges is to get them going in the first half. But overall, I love our effort, especially in the second half.”

So far this season, the Divas have solidified their place as one of the top teams in women’s football, even though they are now 0-2 after dropping consecutive close games to the teams ranked #1 and #2 in the sport. The Divas’ record brings a particular urgency to this Saturday’s game with their division rivals, the Columbus Comets. A loss to Columbus would virtually eliminate the Divas from contention for the division title, while a victory this weekend would all but assure the Divas of a spot in the WFA playoffs.

Columbus (1-1) will come into the game with momentum from a 42-0 victory over the Derby City Dynamite. Coach Fischer understands the importance of Saturday’s contest. “Columbus is a division rival, and it’s pretty much a must-win game for us if we want to win the division. That’s how we’re treating it.”

Saturday’s game promises to be a tough, well-played contest, and the Divas and Comets are longtime rivals that know each other well. “Columbus always brings it. They’re always physical and play for the whole game,” Fischer praised. “The Comets have always had a strong running game, and defensively, they have some very good athletes that get to the ball.”

Get your tickets today for this important matchup on Saturday, April 26, against the division rival Columbus Comets by visiting Kickoff for Saturday’s game is at 6 PM at Prince George’s Sports Complex in Landover.

Around the WFA – The Chicago Force were awarded an extra point for their return of a blocked PAT attempt against the Divas, giving them a corrected final score of 42-27 in their win over D.C. last weekend. Chicago is 3-0 on the year and hosts the 2-0 West Michigan Mayhem Saturday…The Boston Militia remained undefeated with a 47-7 victory over the Cleveland Fusion last week, handing Cleveland their first regular season loss since 2012…The Atlanta Phoenix held off the Miami Fury in a defensive slugfest, 12-8. Atlanta travels to Jacksonville this weekend to battle the always-sharp Dixie Blues…Two weeks ago, the Utah Blitz held a career win/loss record over five seasons of 3-27, including 15 losses in a row. But the Blitz registered their first win since 2011 with a victory over the Everett Reign on April 12, and they now boast a winning 2-1 record on the season with their triumph last weekend over the Nevada Storm…The Seattle Majestics, Central Cal War Angels, and San Diego Surge are all 3-0 and dominating opponents on the West Coast. Seven of their nine combined victories have been by 40 points or more.

Bowie State Bulldogs Football Wraps Up Spring Practice on a Successful Note

      Displaying Wilson, Johnson and Redman.jpg                                    

BOWIE, Md. - Easter weekend proved to be more than just another holiday for the Bowie State University Football Team.  Following a “Mock Draft” on Thursday, April 17th where Moses Ware, Bulldog Offensive Coordinator and Coach for the Gold Team and Antone’ Sewell, Defensive Coordinator and Coach of the Black Team chose players for each of their teams in a fashion similar to the NFL Draft. 

On Friday, April 18th, the Bulldog Coaching staff hosted the program’s first fundraiser in the Student Center.  The capacity crowd of parents, friends of the program and supports were entertained by a DJ and the Soul Patrol Band.  Proceeds from the event netted over $10,000 that go directly into the Bulldog Foundation which supports the football team’s student-athletes.

On Saturday, April 19th, the entire football team came together to go over last minute details and assignments prior to the Bulldog Alumni Game.  Just as they were about to be released, Bulldog Linebacker Coach and former Super Bowl Champion (New Orleans Saints) Charles Grant introduced the Bulldog players and coaching staff to his former teammate at the University of Georgia, Running Back for the Denver Broncos and Detroit Lions and Riverdale Baptist Alum, Olandis Gary who gave words of encouragement and hosted a valuable question and answer session.
 Displaying Grant and Gary.jpg
The Bulldogs had their full Black and Gold Game to wrap-up the Spring Season following a spirited Alumni Game featuring former Bulldog players from the 80’s, 90s’ and 2000’s to include Bulldog Defensive Coordinator Sewell. The Spring Game began with former Bulldog and Houston Texans Delano Johnson (’11) as Honorary Captain for the Black Team while former Pittsburgh Steelers and Bulldog All-Time Leading Rusher Isaac Redman captained the Gold Squad. 

The day was filled with big hits and big plays which resulted in only a 3-0 score for the Gold Squad.  Afterwards, Bulldogs Head Coach Damon Wilson stated he was happy with the fact the team was able to fill two completely separate teams with multiple players at each position so that the coaching staff could truly get an accurate evaluation of the team’s strengths and challenges.

With training camp in the not so distant future and the first game against Saint Anselm at home on September 6th, the Bulldogs are prepared to make a statement all season long until they regain the CIAA Championship on what would be the 25th anniversary of the last time the Bulldogs were crowned Champions.

I've stumbled upon faster fast loss

A couple days ago I sent my clients an email telling you all about the new accidental discovery I made with a few of my personal training clients (who I used as test subjects)

...that's code for "Guinea pigs"

The BIG discovery I made was a new and faster way to burn belly fat and get flatter and a more defined mid section.

Since sending that email out I've gotten a boatload of responses from people who want to be in the first ever "beta test group" I'm doing to validate my belly fat burning discovery.

Actually, I was a bit overwhelmed with how many people replied back so quickly and asked to be in my beta test group.

So I've finalized the program and here's how it's going to work.

  • I'm calling it the "28 Day Flat Belly Formula"
  • The entire program is only going to be 28 days long It's in the name
  • I'm going to provide you with a done for you meal plan crafted to help you increase your metabolism and burn fat. (This is NOT a diet, it's a 28 day modified meal plan where all you have to do is read it, and eat it.
  • You'll need to workout  3-5 times per week during the 28 day program.
  • The workouts will be challenging, even hard at times but never impossible. And you'll always have motivation and accountability from email and phone contact with me any time.
  • Here's the best part... even though we're going to work on burning belly fat and flattening and defining your abs, we're not going to do a single crunch or sit up. (imagine that, a sexy mid section and a flat belly without doing traditional ab exercises).
  • At the end of the 28 days you should see weight loss of 12-19 pounds and flatter, more defined mid section. (you'll probably drop a clothes size or two)
  • The program starts this coming Monday
Now, typically my clients pay around $247/month or more to get personal training from me.

But since this is going to be the first time online (beta group) that I try out this program on "non-clients" I'm going to make it FREE thats $0 for the entire 28 day flat belly training program AND meal plan. After the 28 days and you have seen great results you can continue on the program for as little as 66 cents per day!

But there's one small catch to all this...

I'm only taking on 19 people for the beta test group because I want to be sure that I can give each individual participant plenty of attention.

So if you want a fast fat burn, and a better looking mid section in only 28 days, and if you're not afraid of a little hard work and can put in 3-5 days per week for just four weeks then this may be the program for you.

To lock in one of the 19 spots for yourself just click here and let me know that you want in on this amazing program.

Committed to your fitness success,

Nathan Lewis

P.S. There are only eight spots left for the 28 Day Flat Belly Formula training program that starts this coming Monday so click here to secure your spot.

new discovery (for a flatter belly)

I think I've discovered a new way to burn more fat and get my clients a flatter belly.

As a fitness trainer, when people come to me, the number one thing they ask for is to help them get abs – a flatter belly.

Now, since I like to experiment with different workouts, cardio programs and eating plans I tend to use my clients as Guinea pigs.

Some times I find better ways to get you faster results and other times I discover things that just don't work (but seemed good in theory).

My clients don't mind, they're good sports about it Actually. Recently I shifted my focus on finding new and faster ways to drop more fat off the mid section and to find a better way to get my clients flatter, more defined abs.

And I *think* I discovered the perfect flat belly formula. Now I say I think because up until now I've only tested this with my current clients. I've never used this system with every day people – you know folks who have not worked out for a while if ever.

That would be the TRUE test of my new discovery.

See, my clients are getting amazing results from this new belly flattening training system I've discovered.

They love it because the results come fast, the belly fat just falls right off and we could see really noticeable results in less than 30 days.

But I need to test it out with people who have never been through my training programs, and that's why I'm writing you...

I'm thinking of doing a "beta test group" online where I would design and deliver the custom program online to a group of people who want to burn belly fat, get definition and flatten your abs and I plan on tracking everything so I can quantify REAL results from people who I have never worked with before.

I'm still working on the outline for the program so I don't know how many people I want to take into this beta group.

But if you think that you'd be interested in being a test subject (yes a Guinea pig) in my beta test group while I test out the new belly fat burning workouts and nutrition program I discovered while training my clients then click here to sign up now to try this program free for 30 days.

I'm putting the details of the program together in the next day or so and then it should be ready to do for the beta test group.

Four Surprising Ways to Avoid Skin Cancer

We’re approaching the time of year when many of us will spend a lot more time in the sun, so soon our radios and TVs will resound with warnings about skin cancer. 
The warnings are somewhat overblown. True, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., but this is mostly due to basal cell carcinomas, an almost harmless type of cancer that affects hundreds of thousands of people.
All the same, sun exposure does bump up your skin cancer risk, and ages and damages your skin to boot. Who wants wrinkles? So take a look at these unusual ways to keep the harm to a minimum and still enjoy some sun. . .

Foods You Should Never Mix
With These Popular Supplements!
There's something that you should know about vitamins.
It’s so controversial that it could change the entire vitamin industry.
What you could be mixing with your vitamins might actually be making you sick.
Vitamins aren't as regulated as pharmaceutical drugs, and labels don't warn you that you could be taking a harmful dose of vitamins by mixing them with other vitamins found in foods.

The type of skin cancer you have to worry about is melanoma. It’s extremely invasive and deadly -- but fortunately pretty rare. It causes around 8,000 deaths in the U.S. each year (might even be more, since many dermatologists have said they’re unaware of reporting requirements).
Melanoma tends to strike more young people than most other cancers. Its rate is highest among white people though other races aren’t immune, and it especially affects those who’ve been sunburned, hence the saturation media coverage about the dangers of sun exposure.
But it also takes a great deal of all-around oxidative stress, AKA free radical damage, to develop skin cancer. And there are several ways to lower the oxidative stress in your body. Here are four I recommend:
Anti-Skin Cancer Strategy #1: Eat Smart
If you get a lot of sun exposure, but pair it with a healthy diet that includes loads of antioxidants, there’s a good chance you’ll curb any cancer from developing.
In fact, sun exposure itself is a free radical story. The problem with the sun’s ultraviolet wavelengths is that they damage skin cells by causing the release of free radicals. If those free radicals damage your DNA, you could wind up with cancer cells that replicate. Fortunately, a large amount of antioxidants in your skin can help neutralize those free radicals and thus prevent skin cancer.
Eating antioxidants is a proven way to keep free radical damage at bay. And you can get plenty in your system as long as you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables (I recommend organic), and supplement with nutrients like vitamin C and E, along with a variety of other herbs and vitamins. I’m also a big advocate of staying hydrated and adding lots of omega-3s (healthy fats) to your diet.
You should also load up on carotenoids, the compounds that give foods like carrots and sweet potatoes their vivid colors. You’ll find them in green leafy vegetables, yellow and orange colored fruits and vegetables, and red beets.
What’s great about carotenoids is that they act as a natural sunscreen to the plants that produce them. So if you eat them, you get similar benefits: a level of natural sunscreen, plus antioxidants that scavenge for free radicals and protect your cells from oxidative damage.
Anti-Skin Cancer Strategy #2: Use the
RIGHT Sunscreen
Not only is your skin your largest organ, it also protects you against pathogens and extreme temperatures and provides sensation and insulation.
The problem with sunscreen when it comes to skin cancer is that you’re basically slathering your skin with toxins. Rubbing toxic ingredients into your body’s key defense against toxins won’t do your health any favors, since your skin is vital when it comes to your body’s detoxification process.
Despite the unstinting praise it gets in the media and from conventional doctors, sunscreen is known to cause rashes, hormonal problems, and yes, maybe even cancer. According to Dr. Arthur Perry, who was recently featured on the Dr. Oz show, the popular chemical sunscreens many people use contain endocrine disruptors and interfere with the function of hormones in our bodies, which potentially leads to cancer—especially breast cancer.
I’m not saying you should forego sunscreen completely, especially if you plan to spend the day at the beach. But you need to choose the right sunscreen. For starters, stay away from anything with benzophenone, which is one of the most common sunscreen ingredients and is known to cause cancer in animals.
Safe alternatives include “physical sunscreens,” which don’t get absorbed into the body—though they can leave a white sheen on your skin. That’s because physical sunscreens sit on the surface of the skin and reflect the sun. They’re basically made of crushed rock, ground down to a fine consistency. Your body can’t absorb rocks.
Physical sunscreens have the following ingredients: zinc, titanium, or both. Plus, they’re good options if you have sensitive skin. And if you don’t want the white sheen, look for micronized zinc oxide. It’s invisible once applied, though it runs a little more expensive. Zinc oxide is the white stuff that some lifeguards smear on their noses to prevent burn.
Many dermatologists say there haven’t been conclusive studies on the link between chemical sunscreens and cancer, but when poisoning takes place over decades it’s pretty tough to get an accurate study going. I believe the effects are subtle and take a while to show up, but they’re there all the same. Big science has not made any effort to find out.
This is another case where people think the government checks everything out and “surely it wouldn’t be on the market if it was dangerous.” Well, they don’t check things out – certainly not long-term effects such as cancer that don’t show up at once.
I’ve also read that a solution of powdered vitamin C in water, smeared on the skin, prevents sunburn. If you’ve tried this, write me and let me know how it worked.
Anti-Skin Cancer Strategy #3:
Get more of this “Sunshine Vitamin”
Ultraviolet radiation can actually be good for you—as long as you’re talking about UVB (ultraviolet-B) radiation. That’s what your body needs to manufacture vitamin D. Though keep in mind, you only need a few minutes of sun at midday (especially if you’re Caucasian) to make what you need.
When you have healthy levels of vitamin D, you’re actually better protected against all types of cancer. Plus, there are scores of diseases linked to low vitamin D concentrations that you can easily protect against. And because the primary source of vitamin D is the sun, you can come by it naturally and—thank heavens—free of charge.
Sadly, Big Pharma sees vitamin D as a threat to their profits. Here’s their skewed logic: If people get enough vitamin D, their general health will be better and they won’t need other drugs. Because of this, representatives of the pharmaceutical industry recommend shockingly low levels of daily vitamin D intake—just 600 IU/day of vitamin D3 and only 20 ng/ml of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration. This directly contradicts recommendations of vitamin D researchers which call for much higher doses – several thousand IUs per day.
I say, don’t limit yourself when it comes to vitamin D. The benefits are too numerous. The lives saved and diseases prevented thanks to sunshine-generated vitamin D far outnumber the tiny number of additional melanoma cases. Just be sensible and don’t overdo your time in the sun.
Anti-Skin Cancer Strategy #4:
Reduce Inflammation
This one will surprise you. Aspirin is another way to lower your risk of skin cancer. Researchers at Stanford University looked at data on 60,000 women over 12 years and found that those who took daily aspirin reduced their risk of melanoma by 20 percent. The theory is that aspirin beats back cancer cells before they grow and prosper.
The benefits appear to rise from long-term use, so I don’t believe popping an aspirin before you go outside will do any good. This is not a sunscreen, it’s a systemic (whole body) tip for reducing cancer risk by getting inflammation under control.
I don’t endorse the notion of a daily aspirin, pushed by many heart doctors. But this study does point up the benefits of anti-inflammatories for preventing cancer, and it does so in quite a dramatic way. Achieve the “aspirin effect” with safe, natural anti-inflammatories like omega 3 fatty acids (e.g. fish oil), curcumin and digestive enzymes.
Skin protection pays dividends in the long run
If you’re the type who likes to have the sun-kissed glow that comes from a good tan, you can get it naturally. Simply eat more yellow and red fruits and vegetables. A recent study in Scotland showed that doing so gives your skin a more attractive glow—but without the harmful effects of tanning or using fake-tan creams.
Bottom line is, don’t forget to pay a lot of attention to your skin. Sun exposure isn’t the only threat, and sunscreen is far from being the best solution. Remember your skin is subject to premature aging for a variety of reasons, including poor hormonal balances, bad nutrition, dehydration, stress, lack of sleep, alcohol, and smoking. These things will all age you, so follow the advice above to protect your skin and avoid skin cancer.
