We recently posted an article about how filling your plate with 2/3 fruit, vegetables and whole-grains can help you increase your chances of breast cancer survival!
But researchers were quite secretive about the exact types of fruit, vegetables and whole-wheat's to add to your diet. They said they needed to do more research so they had something to compare their current findings to. They were afraid to bring false hope.
The thing is, fresh food DO help your body fight cancer. And it's not only this study that says so.
You see, it's what's in these foods and what they can do for your health when you eat them that are proving to be the reason behind this cancer feat.

If you've received the devastating diagnosis from your doctor that you have type 2 diabetes, you might think there's no way to get your health back on track.
But there is!
And the latest research coming out of Newcastle University in the UK explains you can do it by getting to the bottom of the underlying reason you got diabetes in the first place: Belly fat.

In fact, many “skinny” people collect fat in their abdomen that they can't see.
And you're both at equal risk of diabetes because of what this fat does.

If you think about a black tomato, you probably picture something rotting on the ground with all sorts of disgusting things oozing out of it!
But real black tomatoes have nothing to do with rotting food!
In fact, they're plump, shiny and juicy just like any normal tomato, except their skin is a velvety black.
You may be asking yourself why anyone would want to grow a black tomato never mind replace juicy red ones with them?

At 26, Chris Wrak's doctor told him he had stage three colon cancer. His tumour had grown so large it was digging itself deep into the tissues in his gut and was on the brink of spreading to other tissues in his body.
His doctor gave him one treatment option: Surgery and then chemo. But he couldn't promise it would be the end of his cancer struggle.

Instead, he was going to conquer cancer chemo-free.
And it worked!
Here's what Chris did. And why, ten years later, he's healthy and completely cancer-free.... ››› more
