Why This Type of Soy is Better

Whether or not soy is healthy for you is a hotly debated issue. The debate stems largely from the fact that health benefits of fermented soy have been misconstrued as being applicable to nonfermented soy as well, which is simply not the case. more

A Culinary Combo That Fights Prostate Cancer

By Kelley Herring
New research shows that curried cauliflower – a traditional Indian dish seasoned with turmeric and other spices – provides powerful protection against the development of prostate cancer. What’s more, this Madras medley was shown to be effective in treating established prostate cancers.
Scientists at Rutgers tested curcumin, a phytonutrient found in turmeric, along with phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC). PEITC is a naturally occurring substance particularly abundant in cauliflower and other vegetables of the broccoli family (including arugula, watercress, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, kohlrabi, and turnips).
The researchers injected the mice with curcumin and/or PEITC, alone or in combination, three times a week for a total of four weeks. Both curcumin and PEITC significantly reduced the growth of cancerous tumors. But PEITC and curcumin together had even stronger effects.

Pick up a bottle of this powerful prostate protector. Look for high-quality, organic turmeric at your local health food store, and make sure to keep it in a cool dark place. (Light reduces its potency.)
