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.

Cutting alcohol intake 'would prevent 2,600 cancer deaths a year' (

Reducing daily alcohol intake could prevent 4,600 deaths every year, including more than 2,600 from cancer, experts from Oxford University have said.

Cutting daily alcohol intake to just over half a unit, or 5g, could reduce deaths from five types of cancer by eight per cent, according to a review published in BMJ Open.

The authors indicate that the Government's current recommended daily limits of three to four units (24-32g) for men and two to three units (16-24g) for women may be too high.

The researchers found that if current drinkers lowered their consumption to just over half a unit of alcohol per day, this would delay or prevent around 4,579 premature deaths - equivalent to three per cent. It would reduce liver cirrhosis deaths by 49 per cent, saving 3,000 lives each year.

Sarah Williams, health information officer at Cancer Research UK, said: "Alcohol is one of the most well-established causes of cancer. Scientists and health organisations around the world agree that reducing the amount of alcohol people drink can reduce deaths from cancer."
