Cancer is the #2 cause of death in this country, and has been for decades. Billions of dollars have been assigned, fundraised, and donated to find a cure. Perhaps there is none? Perhaps we have had cures right under our noses that have been suppressed by western medicine. What can/would you do if you were diagnosed?
Our digestion is considered normal unless something goes wrong, sometimes terribly wrong. So many people suffer from disorders in this perfect system; they may suffer for decades, even die from it. I know it doesn't need to be this way.
And we have all the capabilities to take care of it our selves, even heal from digestive disorders. Understanding the system is part of the healing.
ORAC value stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It's a lab test that attempts to quantify the "total antioxidant capacity" (TAC) of a food. According to the free-radical theory of aging and disease, diets high in antioxidants will slow the oxidative processes that contribute to age-related degeneration and chronic disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, diabetes and arthritis.
Over forty years of studies have shown that any nutrient categorized as an antioxidant can protect against allergies, arthritis, cancer, cataracts and heart disease, as well as against disorders we are suffering from simultaneously, but which might be totally unrelated.
