Did you know that organic apples may help fight cancer?

According to the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules regarding cancer, researchers at Fourth Military Medical University, School of Pharmacy in China found that an oligosaccharide in apples (a sugar) showed positive results when used with human colon cancer cells. Oligosaccharide has been found to initiate apoptosis, killing cancer cells and damaged cells, which may later become cancerous. Montclair chiropractor, Dr. Eshanov, advises patients on healthy eating habits and recommends that patients eat plenty of fresh RAW vegetables and fruits. (The family chiropractor advises everyone to consult with their primary health care provider prior to implementing  any new diet regimens.)


Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Slow or Stop Breast Cancer Cell Growth

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to slow and even stop breast cancer cell proliferation and growth according to researchers from the Fox Chase Cancer Center.  Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids include fish such as tuna, salmon, trout, chia seeds, flax seeds and various nuts. A complete list of omega-3 fatty acid rich foods maybe viewed at nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000140000000000000000.html. According to Thomas Pogash,”Diet can play a critical role in breast cancer prevention. When you compare a western diet to a mediterranean diet, which has more omega-3s, you see less cancer in the mediterranean diet. They eat much more fish.”

Dr. Eshanov, a chiropractor in Montclair NJ, advises patients that omega-3 fatty acids have also demonstrated positive effects in reducing inflammation and reducing LDL.
