October is Cancer Awareness Month and breast cancer is usually the focus, but I think the focus can be on any form of cancer.  In an article by Lynn Allison entitled “10 Foods That Destroy Cancer Cells” in the Newsmax Health Section of the site:, here are the 10 foods. You can also Google the article itself with the author’s name and it will come up under

(My comments in parentheses).

NOTE: There is more information on each food in  this article and I suggest you read it in its entirety. Links to other articles from newsmax are below the list. You may want to read the one on breast cancer, since this is a hot topic for October.

  1. Grapes and Red Wine (aim for organic)
  2. Sea Vegetables, such as arame, kombu, nori (used is sushi)
  3. Turmeric (spice that contains cur cumin, a powerful cancer-fighter)
  4. Green Tea (contains an anti-inflammatory ingredient)
  5. Cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage
  6. Garlic, which may reduce the risk of many cancers, including breast cancer
  7. Hemp Oil, which speeds up the healing process
  8. Mushrooms, long-used in traditional medicines to be anti-viral and anti-cancer
  9. Ginger, which has been shown to reduce tumors
  10. Tomatoes, which contain lycopene. that destroys cancer cells (Buy organic!)

P.S. My recipe for Kitchari*, an Indian Stew that I make often, uses many of these food items: garlic, cruciferous veggies, ginger, turmeric, and mushrooms. If you go to a Japanese restaurant and order sushi, you can enjoy it better knowing that the seaweed nori is what surrounds the insides. A glass of red wine or green tea will go nice with almost any meal,
and hemp oil can be used as part of your salad dressing or taken as gel caps.

I actually have several kitchari recipes from other sources. Just put the word kitchari in the search box for the other links that are slight variations on my recipe link here.

Urgent Petition on Monsanto’s Roundup

Friday, October 5th, 2018



More info on Roundup’s Toxicity Please sign petition below.

Tell the USDA: Test our food for Monsanto’s toxic glyphosate NOW.

The USDA tests our food for pesticides to make sure it’s safe for us to eat. But it’s not testing for glyphosate — a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®.

The California Supreme Court recently affirmed that glyphosate is dangerous to humans. The World Health Organization named it as a probable carcinogen. And the EU and Canada are already testing for it in food.

The USDA is dragging its feet on protecting us from this toxic pesticide. We need your help to change that!

Tell the USDA: Test our food for Monsanto’s toxic glyphosate.

The science is clear. Roundup® is terrible for people and the planet. It’s used to douse our food, including common crops like soy and wheat. This toxic pesticide is ending up on our plates and in our bodies.

The amount of Roundup® being used each year has increased significantly. Use jumped from only 11 million pounds in 1987 to nearly 300 million pounds in 2016.

That means Roundup® is sneaking into our food in increasingly dangerous ways. This summer, new tests revealed glyphosate in cereal and granola bars commonly eaten by kids.

The USDA annually tests our food for pesticide residues to make sure it’s safe. If the agency finds residues above the maximum level, it’s supposed to notify the EPA to allow actions to be taken against the supplier. But instead, it’s looking the other way as glyphosate poisons our communities.

Tell the USDA: Start testing our food for glyphosate to make sure it is safe for Americans to eat.

Despite the evidence that glyphosate is harmful for human health, the USDA refuses to test our food for it. In 2017, the agency announced that it would start testing corn syrup for glyphosate, but then quickly dropped the plan.

This begs the question — why is the USDA so reluctant to test our food for glyphosate? Maybe because Monsanto doesn’t want it to test and release this information. Documents revealed that Croplife America, the trade organization that represents Monsanto’s interests, has tried to influence the USDA’s testing program.

We need to send the message to the USDA that it can’t put Monsanto’s profits ahead of human health and the environment.

Tell the USDA: Test our food for Monsanto’s toxic glyphosate NOW.
