Cabernet, Chocolate, and You

Just living, is incredibly stressful. Emotionally, spiritually, and physically. That's no secret to any of you.

And now, many studies have shown that stress can damage the heart, and even cause cancer. High cortisol levels, the fight or flight hormones--- can be killers.

So what can we do? Can there be ways, even very pleasant ways, to reduce this ongoing daily risk?

How about food? Like red wine and chocolate? I'm serious. Yes, red wine and chocolate are very potent medicines. We already knew about red wine's resveratrol--- its good effect on reducing the odds of many cancers.

But now, red wine has been found to actually kill active cancer, according to new research!!!!

Red grapes and dark chocolate starve cancer while providing nutrients, Angiogenesis Foundation head William Li said at a prestigious TED Conference recently. "We are rating foods based on their cancer-fighting qualities," Li said. "What we eat is really our chemotherapy three times a day."

Blueberries, garlic, soy, and teas also help fight the effects of stress, and cancer. These foods possess key chemicals that reduce blood supplies to tumors, starving them to death.

For you males out there, an important Harvard Medical School study showed that men (who ate cooked tomatoes several times weekly) were 30 to 50 percent less likely to suffer the onset of prostate cancer.

About a dozen drugs are already in use to deprive tumors of blood supplies in a treatment tactic called "anti-angiogenesis. More astonishingly--- the Angiogenesis Foundation found that soy, parsley, red grapes, and many berries were either as effective in battling cancer cells, as many cancer drugs!

Eaten together, the foods tested were even more effective than the drugs, in fighting cancer!

"We discovered that Mother Nature laced a large number of foods and herbs with anti-angiogenesis features," researcher Li said. "For many people around the world, dietary cancer treatment may be the only solution because not everyone can afford cancer drugs."

If that's not enough, lets double-down. How about weight-loss for a bonus?

The foundation also discovered that anti-angiogenesis foods--- lowering blood flow to adipose tissue--- melt away fat!

Eat the right foods. Starve your tumors to death. And melt fat at the same time.
