Firebirds Use Team Effort to Hold Off NYIT, 77-70

 
December 18, 2013


WASHINGTON, DC – The University of the District of Columbia women's basketball team used a collective team effort to hold off East Coast Conference foe NYIT, 77-70 on Wednesday evening in the nation's capital.
The Firebirds, currently the top team in the "Others Receiving Votes" category of the USA Today/WBCA Coaches' Top-25 Poll, improved to 8-1 overall and stayed unbeaten in league play at 4-0 with today's win. NYIT, which had won three of its last four games including its last two, fell to 4-4 overall and 2-3 in league play.
UDC had five different players reach double figures in scoring, and five different players collected at least five rebounds in the absence of the team's leading rebounder, sophomore forwardTatyana Calhoun (Environmental Science – Disputanta, VA/Sussex Central HS), who was out with a shoulder injury. Junior transfer guard Telisha Turner (Criminal Justice – Wilmington, DE/Harcum) scored a team-high 20 points while also registering season-highs of six rebounds and five assists. Junior forward Denikka Brent (Mechanical Engineering – Chesapeake, VA/Booker T. Washington HS) posted 11 points and five rebounds, sophomore forward Tiara Goode (Criminal Justice – Brentwood, NY/Brentwood HS) and senior transfer center Milena Bubnjevic (Criminal Justice – Leskovac, Serbia/Leskovacka Gimnazija) each pitched in 10 points and six rebounds and senior point guard Teara Shaw (Health Education – Bronx, NY/Indian River St.) added 10 points, four rebounds, three assists and a game-high three steals.
The Bears were led by the outside shooting of senior guard Alex Venuto and the interior play of reserve forward Dina Ragab. Venuto shot 7-of-16 from the field and 6-of-14 from long range for a game-high 24 points while Ragab played 24 minutes off the bench and added 17 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Starting forward Shannon Duer also finished with eight points and 11 rebounds, including a game-high seven on the offensive glass.
Venuto knocked down the first of her game-high six three-pointers for the first points of the game about 30 seconds into the action to help the Bears race out to an early 10-5 lead. Following a Firebird timeout though, UDC tied the score with a 5-0 run highlighted by a three-pointer by Bubnjevic. With the score knotted at 10-apiece with a little over four minutes gone by, Venuto buried two consecutive three-pointers and Maddison Campbell added a layup as part of an 8-0 NYIT run to go up 18-10 at the 14-minute mark. For the next six minutes, the only scoring by either team came on a pair of free-throws by Brent, but UDC rattled off another 13 unanswered points in a three-minute span after that, and built itself a 25-18 advantage with about five minutes left to play in the first half. The Bears came charging back, however, holding UDC scoreless in that final five minutes except for a layup by Shaw with nine seconds left. NYIT closed out the first period on a 12-2 surge, culminating in the fourth three-pointer of the half by Venuto just seconds before the buzzer, and the Bears led 32-29 at halftime.
The Firebirds came out with a head of steam in the second half, opening on a 7-1 run, capped by sophomore guard Tajruba Baldwin-Kollore's (Public Health – Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS) jumper to put UDC in front, 36-33 at the 16:36 mark. Back came the Bears though, with a 7-0 march that put them back ahead, 40-36 after a pair of Venuto free-throws near the 14-minute mark. Back-to-back running jumpers by Goode (who's 10 points was a season-high) helped stop the bleeding and evened the score at 40-all, and Brent later made 1-of-2 at the line to give UDC a 41-40 advantage just past the 12-minute mark. The lead would change hands four more times before Brent's layup at the 9:29 mark put the Firebirds ahead to stay, 47-46. Baskets by sophomore transfer guard Myla Somerville (Criminal Justice – Loveville, MD/Bowie St.) and senior guard Julissa Anderson (Criminal Justice – Greensboro, NC/Southeast Guilford HS) helped grow the lead to five, (51-46) at the 8:48 mark, but Venuto closed the gap to two with her first three-pointer of the second half (fifth of the game). Turner came right back down the floor for the Firebirds and spot up for a clutch three-point answer. Then, following an NYIT turnover, Anderson connected on a three-point dagger to make it, 57-49 UDC with 7:18 remaining. The Firebirds maintained a lead between four and 10 points the rest of the way and won by a comfortable seven-point margin.
UDC out-shot their guests 41-percent (28-of-68) to 32-percent (22-of-68) from the field and 35-percent (7-of-20) to 24-percent (8-of-34) from long-range. The Firebirds were also the more efficient passing team with 14 assists to 14 turnovers compared to NYIT's 16 assists and 21 turnovers. UDC out-scored NYIT 34-24 in the paint and 26-13 on points off turnovers.
The Firebirds, who currently sit atop the ECC standings, have over two weeks off for the winter holiday break before they host non-conference foe American International on Saturday, January 4th 2014 at 1 p.m.

This bitter fruit is a sweet way to beat cancer

This Bitter Fruit is Having Sweet
Success Against Cancer!

When it comes to natural remedies, it seems that ancient Oriental medicine often has a leg up on Western medical practitioners.
This holds true when it comes to the plant called bitter melon, which is especially popular among Japanese living in Okinawa.
Based on the many health benefits it brings—perhaps it’s no coincidence that folks on this Japanese island live longer than almost anyone else on the planet. Keep reading and discover the benefits of this natural remedy. . .
Continued below…

Video of the Week:
"Shocking Confessions of a Drug Company Insider"
In this exposé, a top executive of a major pharmaceutical company spills the naked truth about the drugs you and your family take... which drugs heal, and which ones KILL... what doctors turn to when they don't know the cure... what they do when they themselves or their loved ones are stricken with disease or illness... what life-saving resource they insist should be in every home. Watch this must-see video nowbecause your life -- or the life of your loved ones -- may depend on it.

Bitter melon is commonly found in Asia, the Caribbean, East Africa, and South America.
It has a green, bumpy outer skin and looks like a type of squash. A bitter melon that isn’t fully ripe can produce an unpleasant taste.
But what the fruit lacks in looks and flavor it makes up in its healing powers.
Bitter melon has long been prepared as an herbal remedy for use in traditional Asian medicine. According to the Philippine Department of Health, the fruit can be used to treat:
  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Coughs
  • Diarrhea and other stomach problems
  • Headaches
  • Parasites
  • Respiratory problems
  • Skin eruptions
Filipinos often grind bitter melon leaves and seeds into a juice to drink for various stomach problems. They also use warmed bitter melon leaves as a topical treatment for burns or cuts.
Recently, U.S. medical practitioners have begun to embrace the antiviral, antioxidant and anti-diabetes health benefits this plant provides.
For example, information from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Research Center shows bitter melon contains compounds that help your cells absorb and process glucose—just as insulin naturally does.
This could prove to be a health bonanza for the thousands of people dealing with blood sugar imbalances such as type II diabetes.
But scientists are most excited about recent research that shows the plant may be a powerful natural cancer cure.
Pancreatic cancer gets a smack down!
A team of researchers at the University of Colorado Cancer Centerbought a Chinese variety of bitter melons from a local grocery store. They used a regular juicer to remove the pulp and seeds, then tested some of the remaining juice directly on cell cultures.
The results?
Bitter melon juice—diluted to just five percent in water—was amazingly effective at reducing the viability of all four pancreatic cancer cell lines tested!
After just 72 hours of treatment, the bitter melon juice reduced the viability of BxPC-3 and MiaPaCa-2 cancer cells by a whopping 98 percent!
It was almost as efficient against the AsPC-1and Capan-2 cancer cell lines, reducing their viability by 90 percent.
Researchers found that bitter melon juice launched a two-pronged attack by:
  • Inducing programmed cell death (apoptosis) along several different pathways, and
  • Starving cancer cells of the sugar they need to survive.
But the researchers didn’t stop with testing the juice on cells in a Petri dish…
Mouse tumors shrank
a whopping 64 percent!
The investigators also implanted mice with MiaPaCa-2 human pancreatic cancer cells to test the effectiveness of the juice in vivo (that is, on live subjects).
For six weeks, they fed half of the mice five milligrams daily of freeze dried bitter melon powder. The researchers were amazed to find that the mice fed with juice powder had pancreatic tumors 64 percent smaller than the untreated mice—with no visible side effects!
What’s more, these results are similar to those achieved with the most popular chemo drug used to treat pancreatic cancer.
In a different study using the same type of animal and cancer cell lines, the chemo drug reduced tumor growth by 52 percent after 18 days.
But pancreatic cancer isn’t the only type of cancer that bitter melon is able to clobber…
Bitter melon blows away breast cancer
Ratna B. Ray, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Pathology at Saint Louis University, is convinced that bitter melon extract “can be utilized as a dietary supplement for the prevention of breast cancer."
In the 2010 study published in Cancer Research, Dr. Ray’s team conducted in vitro experiments using the extract on breast cancer cells and primary human mammary epithelial cells.
The researchers found that bitter melon significantly slowed cell growth and division. What’s more, they found that the extract also caused breast cancer cells to self-destruct.
According to a Science Daily report, the researchers are using several cancer cell lines to conduct follow-up studies to examine how the extract discourages cancer cell proliferation.
They also plan to conduct a preclinical trial to evaluate how well it performs when administered orally.
But one way to enjoy the health benefits of bitter melon is to eat it! Many people around the globe enjoy the fruit with meals, although it may be an acquired taste for people who aren’t used to it.
The ripe fruit has a sweet flavor that you may enjoy. But if you’re not sure you want to add bitter melon to your meals—it’s also available in the U.S. and many other countries as a supplement.
Be sure to talk with your doctor before using bitter melon, especially if you have diabetes. Its natural ability to moderate blood sugar may interact negatively with diabetes medications. But that’s true of nearly all natural remedies for high blood sugar. Used correctly, they reduce your need for drugs, often to zero. But you have to monitor the process to make sure your blood sugar doesn’t plummet too low.
And with proper use, you may find that bitter melon is a safe and effective way to enjoy sweet success against cancer!

Washington Adventist Shocks Bowie State 72-71


BOWIE, Md. – Bowie State shot a season-low 33 percent from the floor and tied their season-high of 23 turnovers, losing a heartbreaking 72-71 decision to the Washington Adventist Shock on Monday night in the A.C. Jordan Arena.

The win moves the Washington Adventist University record to 9-5 overall while the Bowie State University Bulldogs first semester record drops to 6-5 on the year. The Shock victory also snapped a BSU 21-game series winning streak over Washington Adventist/Columbia Union.

Washington Adventist was led by freshman Eric Lindsey (Churchton, Md.) with 20 points which included the game winning free throw with 1.2 seconds left in the game. Tyrus Fleetwood (Hackensack, N.J.) and Charles Allen (Washington, D.C.), came of the WAU bench to add 15 and 10 points respectively.

“We knew tonight’s game was going to be tough, but to turn the ball over 23 times and have them convert that into 31 points was our downfall”, said Bowie State head coach Darrell Brooks.

The Bulldogs held advantages in points in the paint (38-36), second chance points (13-8) and rebounds (51-43) However, the Shock converted BSU’s 23 turnovers into 31 points.

Bowie State was led in scoring by senior Carlos Smith (Baltimore, Md.), who finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds, his third double-double of the season. Graduate student Brian Freeman (Clinton, Md.) recorded his third double-double of the year, adding 13 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) tallied 11 points off the bench, while senior Ray Gatling (Oxon Hill, Md.) added 10 points and a career-best nine assists.

Washington Adventist held an early 4-0 advantage until back-to-back field goals by Smith tied the game at 4-4. The lead would change hands seven times in the first half with each team experiencing a four point lead twice.

Bowie State went into halftime with a 37-33 advantage, mainly on good free throw shooting. The Bulldogs knocked down 13-of-16 first half free throws (81 percent), but shot a chilly, 12-of-36 field goals, which included all eight 3-point attempts during the first 20 minutes of action.

Washington Adventist didn’t shoot well either in the first half, making 12-of-33 (36 percent) field goals, which included 4-of-12 behind the 3-point line.

The Bulldogs started the second half on 7-0 run to give the home team their first double-digit lead of the night at 44-33. Bowie State pushed their lead to a game-high 13 points at 56-43 following a pair of free throws by sophomore Andre Jackson (Owings Mills, Md.) at the 13:28 mark.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the Shock made a huge run over the next nine minutes, outscoring Bowie State 21 to 11, trimming the deficit to 67-64 after a traditional three-point play by Elliott Meredith (Bedford, Ohio) with 4:49 left in the non-conference contest.

Two free throws by the Shock’s Fleetwood cut the Bulldogs lead down to one at 67-66 a little over two minutes later.

Junior Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) scored Bowie State’s only field goal over the final 1:09, which was a 3-pointer to give the Bulldogs a little breathing room at 71-66. In fact, the Bulldogs made just one other field goal over the final 9:40.

Calvin Lovitt (Capital Heights, Md.) drained a triple on the next Washington Adventist possession and a Lindsey free throw knotted the count at 71 with 22 seconds remaining in the game.

Following a Bowie State timeout, a Gatling 3-pointer was off the mark and during a mad scramble for the rebound, Lindsey was fouled with 1.7 seconds left on the clock. Lindsey missed the first of two free throws in the double bonus situation, but sank the final throw for the final score of 72-71.

The Bulldogs will break for final exams and return January 2nd to open conference play on the road at Livingstone followed by road games at Johnson C. Smith (1/4) and Winston-Salem State (1/6).

Seed oil may defeat “incurable” pancreatic cancer

Could this Seed Really be
‘Cancer’s Worst Nightmare’?

We’ve had an unusually good run lately at uncovering exciting new cancer treatments. (Much thanks to our wonderful research staff!) If you missed our article about dandelion in Issue #350 you should absolutely go back and read it now.
This week I’ve got one for you that’s equally if not more exciting. If you knew about a natural cancer treatment with over 460 scholarly studies published on its efficacy … wouldn’t you want to spread the word?
That’s how I feel about the Nigella sativa seed. The flowering portion of this plant is often called by more popular names like fennel flower, nutmeg flower, black caraway, Roman coriander, and black cumin. But read this before you head for your spice cabinet!
Continued below…
Do THIS for 3 Minutes a Day
To Slash Belly Fat
Belly fat isn’t only uncomfortable – it’s also dangerous for your health.
The trouble is… belly fat has always been so hard to get rid of – until now…
Meet Clent Manich. Weighing in at 447 pounds, he had belly fat in spades and serious health issues.
But not anymore.
Clent discovered a natural 3-minute-a-day solution that changed his life forever.
Just click here to get the exact “recipe” he used – and look and feel better than you have in years!

     It’s confusing, but Nigella sativa has nothing to do with the herbs fennel, nutmeg, coriander and cumin which many of us cook with. So I’m just going to call it N. sativa for the rest of this piece, even though calling it fennel or black cumin would give it a nice, cozy, kitchen-cabinet feeling.    
The flower is native to south Asia, and looks like a bed of miniature tulips have been planted inside the outer petals of a daffodil. But the seeds that eventually spring from this flower are where the curative magic is found, including chemotherapeutic effects on several types of cancers.
Multiple studies over several years
show this anti-cancer seed works
One of the greatest aspects of N. sativa is its ability to stop some of the most aggressive forms of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. Right now, pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in America, claiming around 34,000 lives a year. The survival rate after five years of conventional cancer treatment is a dismal four percent.
That’s why I’m so encouraged by a study conducted at Kimmel Cancer Center, part of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. The researchers found treatments containing N. sativa destroyed pancreatic cancer cells. The “magic” ingredient in Nigella sativa appears to be thymoquinone, an extract of the seed oil.
Researchers believe thymoquinone holds promise as a preventative strategy both for patients who have already gone through surgery and chemotherapy and are at risk of developing a second round of cancer, as well as those who have a generally high risk of developing cancer, period.
Along with her team, Dr. Hwyda Arafat of Thomas Jefferson University found that adding thymoquinone to cancer cells resulted in programmed cell death for about 80 percent of the pancreatic cancer cell lines tested. She and her team also found that activity of a tumor suppressor gene (p53) and a gene (Bax) that promotes apoptosis or programmed cell death both increased. Similarly, the bcl-2 gene that blocks cell death was decreased. These findings are based on tests of lab-cultured cancer cells, not human subjects.
Other observations included what the team called “epigenetic” changes in pancreatic cancer cells—that is, modifications to the “expression” or activity of the cell’s DNA. The thymoquinone essentially increased the acetylation process of DNA proteins, which is key to initiating cell death. And at the same time, thymoquinone acted as a histone deacetylases (HDAC) inhibitor, which basically stops the gene transcription process so cancer cells can’t replicate.
Other studies found that N. sativa oil helped reduce unwanted side effects from chemotherapy, and that it had incredible success as a tumor therapy. In 1997, a study at the Cancer Research Laboratory of Hilton Head Island in South Carolina showed that N. sativa oil increased the growth rate of bone marrow cells by an incredible 250 percent, while at the same time inhibiting tumor growth by 50 percent.
And in a study on N. sativa and breast cancer, researchers found that N. sativa both alone or in combination with oxidative stress was an effective in vitro (test tube) treatment for deactivating breast cancer cells.
“Magic” protocol you can follow from home
As proof that Nigella sativa is making headway as a cancer remedy, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has already granted two patents that involve N. sativa oil for the purpose of treating cancer, boosting the immune system, and preventing side effects from chemotherapy.
There’s also a Black Seed Oil Protocol that’s recommended by several practitioners. Here’s one version of the program:
  1. One teaspoon of black seed oil mixed with a half teaspoon of raw Manuka honey, taken a half hour before breakfast
  2. One teaspoon of black seed oil mixed with juice from one orange taken in the afternoon between meals
  3. One teaspoon of oil mixed with a half teaspoon of raw Manuka honey, taken before bed
The honey is used as a carrier to get the oil to the diseased cell, and Manuka honey is said to have the highest anti-microbial activity of all honeys. This protocol, combined with a healthy lifestyle, is said to work wonders both in treating cancer and a variety of other ailments.
I suspect the thymoquinone extract researched by the team at the Kimmel Center may turn out to be extremely effective when given intravenously (by IV). But as far as I know, no studies have been done. The Kimmel study, as I mentioned, was on lab cultures, so we’re well short of knowing what we need to know about the clinical value of this substance.
Cures just about everything but death
It appears Nigella sativa is an effective remedy well beyond cancer, including both acute and chronic conditions—everything from the treatment of diabetes and hypertension to dermatological conditions.
Additional studies by Arafat and her team indicate it can treat a broad array of immune and inflammatory disorders, on top of thwarting the growth of diseases like prostate and colon cancer. The oil has also been shown to have anti-fungal effects and has been successfully used to treat the growth of Candida in all organs in the body.
In the Middle East and certain Southeast Asian countries, Nigella seeds are sold in small bundles labeled “black cumin.” They’re meant to be rubbed until they warm up, and then they let off an aroma that supposedly opens clogged sinuses similar to eucalyptus treatments.
So far, small quantities of the black seed oil appear to have no harmful side effects, though there isn’t enough research on larger, medicinal quantities to know if those are safe. The only adverse effect I came across was that some people get allergic rashes if they rub the oil on their skin, which some practitioners recommend doing for joint pain and headaches.
If you’re interested in trying it, the oil is widely available both online and in herbal and nutritional stores.
And if you’re interested in an exciting new supplement that may prevent cancer – or help treat it if you’ve got it – you should have read our last issue. If you missed it, please read it below.

Create an Internal “Enemy Territory”
Cancer Cells Don’t Dare Invade!

What if you could make your body “enemy territory” for cancer?
If the claims hold up, you may be able to do just that in three ways, with one single product… creating an internal environment hostile to cancer.
Obviously there are a number of other things you can do. Like doing without sugar, which cancer also loves. And exercising. But today we’re introducing you to a proprietary mineral supplement that may send rogue cancer cells packing. Read on to discover more…

The cancer secret
only top 1% of U.S. oncologists know 
?
What you're about to see is real.
An out-of-control brain tumor that chemotherapy, radiation, and even surgery failed to stop...
Shrunk to nothing using a brand new cancer treatment known as the "Halo Cure".
The Halo Cure has successfully treated over 20 different cancers in lab tests.
And as we speak, an enlightened 1% of U.S. oncologists are using it to save "hopeless" patients from some of the most deadly cancers known to man... Without the horrifying side-effects associated with chemo, radiation, and surgery.
The only thing you'll find more shocking than how easily this groundbreaking cancer solution works... Is the shameful reason the government has kept it secret for over 3 years!
But in this groundbreaking video, one doctor is stepping forward to reveal how you can get full details on the life-saving Halo Cure as well as cutting-edge natural treatments for Alzheimer's, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and more... Absolutely free!
If you're ready for the truth behind the U.S. government's best kept cancer secret, watch this eye-opening video now!


It’s a well-established fact that cancer thrives in three conditions:
  • An acidic internal environment
  • A low-oxygen environment
  • A toxic environment
Who cares about pH and O², anyway? You should, if you want to be healthy, or fight disease.
Can you hope to be healthy
with an acidic body?
According to many cancer experts, if you want to create an inhospitable environment not only for cancer cells but also for bacteria, viruses and fungi, then you need to guard your body’s pH… because the right cell and tissue pH is critical for good health.
pH is the measure of negative hydroxyl ions (OH-), to the number of positive hydroxyl (H+) ions in your fluid or tissue. The higher the pH, the more alkaline and oxygen rich… the lower it is, the more acidic and oxygen-poor. For good health, you need to maintain a pH of about 7.4.
Although the difference appears insignificant, acidity in the range of 7.0 or 6.7 weakens every system in your body, making you a sitting duck for disease.
It forces your body to borrow minerals from your vital organs, bones and teeth in order to neutralize that acid and remove it. The body will do whatever is necessary to keep the blood slightly alkaline, but it may have to strip everything else of minerals in order to do that. It’s this depleted state that sets you up for disease.
According to advocates of the acid-alkaline theory of health, disease NEEDS an acidic and low oxygen environment to survive and flourish. Some authorities say terminal patients have acidity levels 1,000 times higher than those of normal healthy people.
In a state of acidosis and low oxygen, glucose becomes lactic acid during fermentation, forcing your pH to plummet, potentially reaching 6.0 or 5.7, or lower.
As you can guess from the word, acidosis refers to excessive acidity. It leads to an inability to absorb and use nutrients, reduced cellular energy, inhibited cellular repair and detoxification… and a friendly environment for tumor cells.
Some researchers say chronic acidosis causes diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, immune problems, chronic infections, and more.
Acidosis is also linked to problems that seem minor but may foretell serious ones in your future… anxiety, diarrhea, early morning fatigue, headaches, rapid heartbeat, restless legs, shortness of breath, high blood pressure, and insomnia. And of course, heightened susceptibility to illness.
Long-time readers of this newsletter may remember that I’ve been skeptical of the acid-alkaline theory because a healthy balance seems to be the effect rather than the cause of good health habits. Many programs that purport to make your body more alkaline just consist of a healthy, nutrient-rich diet or a heavy load of mineral supplements. If it makes them happy to describe a “healthy diet” as an “alkaline diet” then I guess they can do that.
But the supplement I’m reporting on today does seem to be supported by some studies and my attitude is “go with what works.” We can worry about the theory later. If the reports are accurate, this supplement could be an exciting discovery.
The hazards of low oxygen levels
When your cells are low in oxygen, they become inefficient at converting food to energy.
If your oxygen levels dip dangerously low, angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels) begins. This provides fresh oxygen, boosting your oxygen levels and slowing cancer – but only temporarily!
Eventually your energy-conversion efficiency cranks down another notch, creating a vicious cycle.
Researchers believe this cycle is a major driver of cancer. It could explain why so many cancers become drug resistant within three to six months.
It’s been known for more than 80 years,
so why haven’t you heard?
This is based on a recent study, but it’s not particularly new.
More than 80 years ago, Dr. Otto Warburg won his first Nobel Prize (1931) for proving that cancer was caused by lack of oxygen respiration in cells.
In an article called The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer, he said, “the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.”
In other words, the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen respiration with fermented sugar. Your body cells should get their energy from oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs mostly by fermentation.
Fermentation lets cancer cells survive, but they cannot perform normal functions. All they can do is multiply and grow, degrading into cancer cells that no longer serve you, but just live to survive for themselves.
Normal body cells are obligate aerobes (they can’t live without oxygen)… but all cancer cells are partial anaerobes (they can live without oxygen).
So… how do your cells become oxygen deprived?
Internal toxins make you acidic
and oxygen-poor…
Metabolic waste products are acidic and must be detoxified. It’s a normal part of life, as long as you can detoxify effectively.
But most people are regularly exposed to toxic lawn care and cleaning products, plastics, air pollution, drugs, and mercury fillings, to name a few. Unless you’re eating only organic foods, you’re also getting a heavy dose of toxins from fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides in your food.
Compound that with everyday stress, poor sleeping habits, and a sedentary lifestyle, and you get quite a build-up of waste products and toxins. Your body may not be able to rid itself of these substances fast enough to keep up.
If you’re a cancer patient, chemotherapy and radiation also contribute to your toxic load.
Any overload of toxins can clog up your cells, leading to poor quality cell walls that deny access to the nutrients (needed for respiration), and further reduce your ability to detoxify.
Over time these waste products become solid wastes like oxidized fats, uric acid, kidney stones, and tumors. They contribute to rapid aging and related diseases such as arthritis and heart disease.
Now, you may notice that nearly ALL experts on alternative cancer treatment call for avoiding toxic substances and getting rid of the toxins that are already inside us. This view isn’t the property of the acid-alkaline crowd. But they can characterize it that way if they wish, as long as it works. . .
Kills 3 birds with one stone…
A proprietary mineral supplement called Liph (pronounced “life”), formerly called Alka Vita, claims numerous health and anti-cancer properties.
Its main component is modified liquid silica, a unique form of elemental silicon. High in oxygen and highly alkaline, it helps offset internal acidity. In concentrated form, its pH is around 14.3.
It fights cancer by:
  • Inducing apoptosis (cancer cell death)
  • Reducing harmful DNA mutations
  • Preventing cancer cells from attaching to your tissues
Liph creates exactly the kind of cancer-hostile environment you want – an alkaline, oxygen-rich, non-toxic system.
Studies show it reduces oxidative (free radical) stress at a cellular level – by increasing three chemicals that support your immune function and ability to fight cancer:
  • Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – An enzyme that repairs damage caused by superoxide, one of your most abundant free radicals. An antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • Catalase – Another antioxidant enzyme produced naturally. Helps convert the dangerous metabolic byproduct, hydrogen peroxide, into water and oxygen. Also breaks down other harmful toxins.
  • Glutathione – Your most abundant natural antioxidant, often called your Master Antioxidant. Fights cancer by keeping red and white blood cells healthy, and aids in DNA synthesis and repair. Affects every bodily system, especially immune, nervous, and GI systems. So needless to say, glutathione serves a critical role in your health.

Again, readers of this newsletter already know that all three of these substances are extremely important to good health. If this supplement increases them as claimed, I’m all for it.
A stand-alone cancer treatment?
Studies for Liph’s safety have been ongoing for the past eight years.
It was shown to be non-toxic in two 2005 animal studies in Sugar Land, Texas – with no observable abnormal reactions, signs of toxicity, or weight changes.
The same year, in San Diego, a study at the Anti-Cancer Lab showed that Liph reduced tumor growth in mice injected with human melanoma cells… in ALL of the animals, and in some cases, by more than half.
No human studies have been conducted but Liph’s anti-cancer effects have been observed in humans in individual cases. People reported complete remission from various types of cancer – including pancreatic, breast, and uterine – using Liph as a stand-alone cancer treatment!
It’s also been reported to reduce side effects from chemotherapy.
Beats acidosis, low oxygen, and toxins… all at once
Liph is easy to take in water or tea. It’s water soluble, making it an extremely high bioavailable source of silica, compared to other forms of silica. Silica has a pH of about 13.4 – highly alkaline – so it helps rebalance your pH, and helps initiate new healing and tissue construction.
When you’re restored to your optimal alkalinity, your oxygen levels will rise and you’ll be able to detoxify back to full health.
Liph appears to work for both health maintenance and therapy. It deserves more study as a promising cancer treatment.
