Curing Cancer with Carrots
Ann Cameron - 2014
Since then, others with a variety of cancers have reported similar successes. Cameron wanted to find out why such an apparently simple cancer cure--just carrots--works. Based on her extensive reading in scientific journals focused on nutrition and cancer, her ground-breaking book describes the details of the carrot treatment and the scientific evidence for its power. In this book, she shares little-known research that is revolutionizing scientific thinking about cancer and how to treat it. The research comes from the exciting new field of epigenetics--the study of how chemical switching mechanisms in our bodies change the expression of our genes. Our environment, the foods we eat, and the way we live can silence pro-cancer genes or turn them on, set anti-cancer genes on alert or turn them off. Genes aren't our destiny. Neither is cancer. Cancer develops when the body loses its ability to recognize and eliminate rogue cells--cells that take over the body if they don't quit dividing. In some cases--probably many--carrots can restore the body's natural power to regulate growth and kill defective cells. The scientific information in this book could be a life-saver and a beacon of hope for you or someone you know. Equally helpful, it offers the practical knowledge Cameron gained from her journey through cancer and back to health--how to use the internet to research proposed treatments and the quality of hospitals and doctors; how to reduce the cost of cancer care; and how to arrive at individual treatment decisions that are best for you.

It was the diet plan which empowered people to lose weight quickly. The Daily Mail called it “The biggest diet revolution since the Atkins” and their parent paper, the Mail on Sunday said it’s “The only diet plans you'll ever need”. For the Radio Times it was simply “The diet that works”. The Guardian noted that 5:2 is "A modern phenomenon...it sometimes seems as if every other person you meet is following [it]" The 5:2 diet was lauded by the media as the final answer to the western world’s dietary challenges and obesity epidemics. It was the diet to end all diets. Simple, part-time, flexible, hugely healthy and massively effective. But what if there is a way to upgrade the diet which received such plaudits? What if there is a way to make it work better?What if there was a way to ratchet up the health benefits, the anti-aging benefits, the weight loss benefits and the overall effectiveness of the diet?

Peterson ATTENTION: You can now buy the paper back version of this book at the current reduced price of $6.99 and get the kindle version at a discounted price of $0.99 instead of $2.99 using our Kindle Matchbook program cheers! Jordan B. Peterson's "12 Rules for Life" is quite the thought-provoking read. The Canadian clinical psychologist puts forth his ideas about personality, being, existence; the interconnectedness of order and chaos, two forces evident in all of life; the gender roles assignment discourse; the source of the world's greatest evils, and many other controversial topics. It is refreshing, and sometimes confusing, how he weaves biblical accounts and characters into the telling of his stories. But what might raise the hairs of most are his views on political correctness regarding postmodernism, white-privilege, cultural appropriation and everything in between. One thing is clear about Peterson. He is a man unapologetic of his views, which are largely unpopular, closely conservative, and politically incorrect.This book contains a comprehensive, well detailed summary and key takeaways of the original book by Jordan B. Peterson. It summarizes the book in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate and imbibe the original work by Peterson.
