Inflammation can fuel cancer

The "emerging view that inflammation... can fuel cancer" as stated by this article is the reason I've got a link to "The Inflammation Syndrome" by Jack Challem on the lower right of this blog.

Yesterday's article describes more evidence found by UCSF scientists of the negative role the inflammation process plays.

"We already know that inflammation accelerates skin, cervical and colon cancer, and most likely also lung and breast cancer," she said. "If we confirm that what we've discovered in the mice studies also occurs in human cancers, we may soon be in a good position to slow this cancer process using drugs already under study for severe immune disorders."

This is a major reason why I'm so excited about Acai based multi-fruit juices. Numerous studies have shown that eating a diet high in fruits can protect you against inflammation, which can therefore reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

No MLM fruit juice has been studied over a period of years, and none will try to become a drug, so you can't say they will prevent chronic diseases, or any other claims. But it certainly seems logical that as a blend of nutrient-dense whole fruits, containing a very high ORAC score, that it would have a very positive impact on your diet & health. There are tons of anecdotal testimonials from drinkers, but again, this is not scientific evidence. But by drinking a few ounces a day I'm adding approximately 4,000 to 6,000 ORAC units to my diet. I'm drinking my fruit, and an amount of fruit in a mere 4 ounces that far surpasses the daily recommended number of servings in ORAC value.

I've personally felt short term health benefits after starting my nutrient-dense fruit juice, so I feel confident I'll also have long term health benefits associated with a high-fruit diet. Only time will tell, but it's food that scientists and nutritionists are recommending, not supplements. Plus a fruit juice is far more convenient to consume than 5+ fruit servings a day. With all the science pointing to the benefits of a high fruit diet, juice is a convenient choice for me. Try one and see for yourself.
