Orange Is the New Pink

What If We Called It Breast Cancer Prevention Month?

One of the big reasons I founded Ageless Lifestyle After 50 in 2014 was to help you have better health longer in life (an ageless body), allowing you to experience the lifestyle available to you for many decades to come.

Too many women are taken, or have their lives sidetracked, by the diagnosis of breast cancer.

I was one of them, in 1999.

I don’t believe in calling myself a victim or a survivor. I just say I was diagnosed and go on with the conversation.

I don’t believe in giving cancer any power by the words I use.

I also don’t believe in fighting against something. I think it’s more important to talk about what you are for, what you are moving toward.

[Tweet “It’s not enough to be aware, that really hasn’t gotten us very far. We need to focus on prevention.”]

Most of the pink ribbon stuff benefits the organizations and corporations promoting themselves with the ribbon more than it helps to stop women from getting breast cancer.

The first step you can take is following simple steps to have a healthy ageless body if you haven’t already.

We also need to start telling the truth about cures that are already out there and working, rather than promoting drugs and other therapies that could very easily bankrupt you and your family while you suffer through the treatments.

There are so many alternatives. Do your own research. Be very careful whose advice you take on what you should do.

A few years ago I read the information below and it was too good to not share as another reference in our cancer-related library here on the site. (Cancer is listed under body in the tabs above)

Also under the topic of cancer, you will find articles on my cancer story and a radio show I did on how I cured myself naturally along with the mindset it took for me to do that.

If you’re dealing with a diagnosis right now, the resource that I would send my sister to first is ChrisBeatCancer.

Orange is the New Pink!

“Breast Cancer Awareness Month” should be renamed “Breast Cancer Prevention Month”.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, both individuals and businesses don pink ribbons in the fight against breast cancer.

But while pink has become synonymous with breast cancer, orange is the color that can actually help prevent this disease.

According to Dr. Neal Barnard

Women who consume the most orange vegetables, which are rich in carotenoids, lower their risk of breast cancer by 19 percent.

One type of carotenoid is beta-carotene, which many people associate with carrots. The Institute of Medicine recommends women consume a daily serving of 3 to 6 milligrams of beta-carotene to reduce the risk of disease.

Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene, but there are so many other foods that are packed with this immunity-boosting nutrient. One cup of butternut squash has up to three times the suggested minimum amount!

John Robbins and Joel Fuhrman, M.D.’s fantastic argument as to why supporting the pink campaigns (including KFC’s epic offering of pink buckets of fried chicken) will not provide protection against breast cancer the way a health-promoting, disease-fighting diet can.

Ways to Reduce Cancer Risk:

—>Maintain a healthy body weight by eating a nutrient-dense diet and exercising regularly.

—>Make at least half of your plate filled with colorful fruits and vegetables. Eat a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

—>Eat a whole food, plant-based diet to get a continuous flow of cancer-fighting phytochemicals and fiber running through your GI tract and promoting immune health.

—>Avoid meats, fish, dairy, and eggs to decrease toxin load.

—>Limit alcohol intake to no more than one serving a day for women and 2 servings a day for men.

—>Clean up your environment as best as possible by reducing the use of chemicals in your home, in your laundry, on your body, and with the tools, equipment, and cookware you use to cook and prepare food in.

—>Practice stress reduction and mindfulness.

—>Quit smoking.

Health and nutrition are a big passion of mine because, without your health, all the success you can achieve is meaningless. In 1981 I started seriously studying health, nutrition, and the mind/body connection. I stopped eating meat in 1990 for health reasons and compassion for animals. In 1999 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2005, the day after Christmas, I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health by making simple changes has become a driving force in my life.

Until next time, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post here or on Facebook.
