I will be writing about Health & Nutrition, Organic Foods, Natural Healing, and some Great Healthy Recipes too!

We should also consider the rights and responsibilities of the Human Race in what we eat and how we live.

Since we are all different, I accept that no one thinks the same as anyone else, and that is fine. Some things are just "important" ...

So here we go ... here are some of my favorite ideas and findings that I hope will be interesting and helpful or even inspirational, for you as well.

Cruciferous vegetable intake may boost survival of breast cancer patients (news-medical.net)

A study by Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Shanghai Center for Disease Control and Prevention investigators reveals that breast cancer survivors who eat more cruciferous vegetables may have improved survival. The study of women in China was presented by postdoctoral fellow Sarah J. Nechuta, Ph.D., M.P.H., at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting in Chicago, Ill.
"Breast cancer survivors can follow the general nutritional guidelines of eating vegetables daily and may consider increasing intake of cruciferous vegetables, such as greens, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli, as part of a healthy diet," said Nechuta.

Nechuta, Xiao Ou Shu, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues investigated the role of cruciferous vegetables in breast cancer survival among women in the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study, a prospective study of 4,886 Chinese breast cancer survivors who were diagnosed with stage 1 to stage 4 breast cancer from 2002 to 2006. Shu, Ingram Professor of Cancer Research, is the principal investigator of the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study.
