Incredible things happen when
you do incredible things.
I've deleted sugar from my life

High levels of the hormone insulin can stimulate breast cancer

People with diabetes may have a
cause for relief because high
levels of the hormone insulin can
even stimulate the growth of
breast cancer.
Melatonin
melatonin is a sleep hormone
that help us to have a sound
sleep at night, but low levels of
this hormone in the body can
stimulate the growth of breast
cancer.
Age
some 75% of cases are in
women above 50 years. Thus,
risk increases with ages.
Treatment for breast cancer
The best treatments for breast
are restrictive diet and early
detection. Treatment depend on
the stage of the breast cancer.
When cancer is early detected it
can be confined to the organ it
started from where it can be
perfectly removed or cured. But if
the treatment is not commenced
early due to late detection, it can
spread to large area of the breast
as well to other vital organs of
the body. Making oneself
available for the screening
procedures (regular checkup)
can lead to early detection of
cancer while increasing the
chance for cure.

Too much flouride is bad for your health

Fluoride is a natural mineral
abound in water, soil and foods
like tea leaves, egg, fish and
meat. Fluoride is useful when
consumed in reasonable quantity
such as when small quantity is
used in washing our tooth and
mouth regularly.
Benefits of fluoride to our health
Fluoride helps to strengthen the
teeth and prevent cavities,
prevent against tooth decay
when taken in small quantity.
Journal of America Chemical
Society says, "Fluoride helps to
harden the enamel coating that
protects teeth from the acid
produced by decaying bacteria."
Fluoride makes it easy to wash
away decay-causing bacteria
through brushing and other
activity by preventing the
bacteria from having a strong
grip on the tooth.
Despite of all these
aforementioned benefits of
fluoride, it also have it side
effects on health especially if
used or consumed in excess. One
of the side effects of fluoride is
DENTAL FLUOROSIS.
Dental fluorosis occurs during
tooth formation. It ranges from
mild to severe dental fluorosis.
The mild can be hardly spotted
because it is whitish while the
severe can be spotted at a glance
because of its brownish
discoloration of the tooth.
Though, the occurrence of dental
fluorosis has increased over the
last 40 years in non-fluoridated
environments, studies shows
that the greater the exposure to
fluoride during tooth formation
the greater the risk of dental
fluorosis.
Decades ago, the main sources of
fluoride were food and water
but today, fluoride is available
everywhere through products
like toothpaste, mouth rinses and
dietary supplements.
Now the big question am asking
my readers is: Did most of the
consumers know the actual or
appropriate quantity of fluoride
to consume over a given period
of time and at a particular point
in time? The answer to my
question is big NO if I guess
right.
That is why fluoride has recently
attracted criticisms from
scientists and researchers.
Safe quantity of fluoride
According to a reputable online
source, "A 100ml tube of
toothpaste contains about
188.5mg of fluoride more than
three times a lethal dose for a
one-year old-yet nowhere on the
packaging are there any
warnings that this product might
be harmful to your child."
Accordingly, experts confirmed
that 50mg of fluoridated
toothpaste can kill a one-year old
child weighing 10kg.
WHO guideline suggest a 1.5mg
per litre of drinking water is the
safe level of fluoride in drinking
water.
Therefore, parents and
guardians are urged to keep
fluoridated commodity out of the
reach of children.

No evidence of relationship between fluoride and cancer

No evidence of relationship
between fluoride and cancer
Carcinogenicity studies in
rodents along with human
epidemiological studies have
been used to determine whether
a harmful relationship exist
between fluoride in drinking
water and cancer.
Five carcinogenicity studies in
animals have been reported in
the biomedical literature on
whether fluoride in drinking
water can cause cancer but no
association was found to exist
between fluoride and cancer.
Also, over 50 human
epidemiology studies have been
conducted to identify the
statistical association or
relationship between cancer
rates and fluoride. And again a
formidable association cannot be
established between cancer and
fluoridation.

Is Fruits Good For Diabetes

Fruits are good for everybody.
Diabetics and non-diabetics can
benefit themselves from the
numerous health benefits of
fruits.
The advice is that you should be
testing your blood sugar against
the safest fruits for diabetes.
What you can do is to test or
measure your sugar level with
meter after you consume fruits
to know which one is good for
your diabetes condition.
What that means is that a kind of
fruit that is good for one
diabetes patient may spike the
sugar level in others. However,
fruits with low sugar or with
bitter taste might be good for
diabetes. Fruits that can usually
spike blood sugar are those with
sugary taste. Therefore, it is
better for individuals to test their
blood sugar against such fruits.
BOTTOM LINE
Fruits are good for diabetes.
However, diabetes patients are
advised to test or measure their
blood sugar after they consume
fruits especially the sugary ones
to know how they affect their
blood sugar.
