Cut Your Cancer Risk
three changes you can make today to cut your risk
This week the CDC came out with a report relinquishing statistics that the US population falls short with cancer screening. Much of the report is discussing women's cancers such as cancer and breast, and colon cancer which affects men as well. To give you an example, “ According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2010, 72.4 percent of American women were screened for breast cancer, and 83 percent of American women were screened for cervical cancer. These screening rates are below the national targets of 81 percent and 93 percent, respectively.”  Recall the top 10 killers for Americans, heart disease ranks #1 as of 2009 statistics, and cancer coming in next, with 567,628 deaths per year, with an overall death rate of 793.8 deaths per 100,000 population.  Take this knowledge for empowerment, you don't have to be a statistic. When is comes to disease, “genetics loads the gun, with diet and lifestyle pulling the trigger,” as said by Dr. Chris Meletis. Here are 3 simple, not easy, ways to embrace a healthier lifestyle to cut your cancer risk:
- Be Tobacco Free: Have you been to a Body Worlds exhibit or some other experience where you got to view the lungs of a smoker? Or do you know that tobacco use contributes to 1/3rd of all cancer deaths, or that “ a single cigarette contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 200 known poisons and more than 60 carcinogens.”  If you or a loved one, are still using, reach out for help to quit.
- Eat Fruits and Veggies: The record player is broken, have you noticed? Yes, amazingly this is still the answer to so many problems! So basic, yet so hard to make a change at times. Try a cooking class or get a some new recipes to inspire you to make healthy and tasty meals at home. Your plate should be half vegetables, one quarter protein, and one quarter grains (preferably gluten free according to many holistic doctors) according to the new USDA guidelines. 
- Stop Stressing: Stress will make you not only unhappy, overweight, but ultimately lead to your death through heart disease,cancer, or some other illness. Your stress could be manifesting as neck tension, IBS, panic attacks, or other health condition. Consider reading a book, joining a group, or other exploration of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. 
Today, can be the start of a new beginning, leading you down a path of better health. Change starts with you, wanting a long, healthy, and happy life! “ The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions.” ~Ellen Glasgow

over-coming prosperity issues on lack at a time
We all know what it feels like to want something we don’t have. It may be a pair of expensive jeans, a romantic partner, or rent money; it may be a certain attitude, a car, or a savings account. This is part of life, and in the best-case scenario, we experience a constant flow of money and material possessions, companions and experiences, in and out of our lives. However, many of us linger in a state of wanting and not having, a state of lack that never seems to subside. We consistently perceive ourselves as not having what we need or not having what we want. This is an energetically draining state to be in. It is also self-perpetuating because how we feel about ourselves determines what we are able to create for ourselves.
How we feel profoundly influences how we perceive our reality. When we feel we are lacking, we look around and see what is not there. On the other hand, if we feel abundant, we can look at the very same situation and see a completely different picture, one full of blessings and advantages. The more we see the blessings, the more abundant we feel, and the more blessings we attract. Similarly, if we see lack, we tend to create and attract that energy.
If you find yourself habitually residing in a feeling of lack, it may be due to a core belief formed in your childhood or even in a past life. It may be because you are out of touch with your inner divinity, which is the source of your abundance. In any case, know that your perception of lack is a misperception that can be corrected with awareness and effort. It can be as simple as taking 10 or 15 minutes each day to quiet your mind and imagine yourself in a state of unlimited abundance, handling the financial demands and others in your life with total ease, drawing from an endless supply of resources. Know that it is your birthright to be fully supported in the fulfillment of your needs and desires.

This sauce is wonderful paired with pork chops, chicken seared duck breast or a simple grilled fish. The only problem with Plum Sauce is all the sugar it contains. Up to twice as much as soda pop. Here is an awesome and east to make recipe with Plum Sauce that is exotic and delicious but, without all the added sugar.
