Ginger is a natural cancer-killer—and ovarian cancer is the latest on the list!


Natural medicine has known it a long time, and now conventional medicine is starting to agree: ginger kills cancer. A new study has demonstrated its effectiveness against ovarian cancer cells, and earlier research has shown it reverses breast, prostate, cervical, lung and colon cancers.
Researchers have discovered that ginger extract kills ovarian cancer cells over a three-day period. By the end of the third day, the growth of the cancer cells had halved, say scientists at the Iran University of Medical Science.
They tested different levels of ginger extract on the cell lines, and perhaps not surprisingly, the largest amount—80ug/ml—had the most dramatic effect.
The researchers surmise that ginger extract activates a process in the cell known as p53 expression. This regulates the life of a cell, including apoptosis, or cell death. In the cancer cells exposed to the ginger, p53 expression was seven times greater than in untreated cells.
The discovery is an important breakthrough because ovarian cancer is so difficult to treat, the researchers say. It's the fifth most lethal cancer in women, and, in the US in 2016, 22,280 new cases were identified, and it claimed 14,240 lives. Because there are few symptoms, it's often diagnosed quite late, and the general prognosis is poor.

Match your fitness to your personality!

If you are driven by collaboration, the essential dance-party ingredient of Zumba could be the most suitable option for your type of personality.
If you are driven by collaboration, the essential dance-party ingredient of Zumba could be the most suitable option for your type of personality.THE NEW PAPER FILE PHOTO
Are you super social? Which motivates you more - internal or external validation? Maybe you are laid-back? Or keen on getting the biggest bang for your buck? (In fitness, this often translates to burning the most calories.)
At the start of the year and resolutions are being heeded, fitness and health usually take centre stage.
But what exactly is the best fitness routine for you and how do you establish this? Many instructors and trainers will say that "the best fitness routine is the one you will do consistently".
But, if you are not already in a good routine, how do you find the right fitness direction - the one that will promote consistency?
Some say that looking at your personality outside the fitness world can help you figure out what works best inside that fitness world.
In which case, you really need to know: What is your fitness personality?
"If you're a Type A personality, you probably have a quantitative goal. You might be wearing a fitness tracker, and you probably feel you need a reason to work out," says Pete McCall, a spokesman for the American Council on Exercise.
FIND A PERFECT MATCH
If you're a Type A personality, you probably have a quantitative goal. You might be wearing a fitness tracker, and you probably feel you need a reason to work out.
PETE McCALL, spokesman for the American Council on Exercise.
"On the other hand, if you're more motivated by collaboration, whether there is a quantitative goal or not, then you might do well in something like Zumba, where the purpose is to have a dance party," McCall says.
So, ask yourself: Are quantitative goals important to you? If so, try fitness trackers, spin class, treadmill workouts and the like.
Or are you energised by the group setting and maybe having less-trackable goals? Then try group fitness, a la Zumba.
Cassia Denton, director of personal training and group exercise for Balance Gym in Washington, agrees and says to look specifically at what energises you in life.
"The first thing to look at is what tends to recharge you outside of work. Is it a hot bath and a glass of wine? Or is it a big meal with friends?" Denton says. "This can be telling in terms of what will help you stay motivated."
In other words, are you an introvert or extrovert?
The former, Denton says, might do well in a spin or yoga class, where, although there are people around you, the room might be dark and the focus is turned inwards.
The latter might do better in a group fitness class such as CrossFit, treadmill running or boot camp, where not only can people see you but there also might be an element of collaboration.
"If you're in the 'big meal with friends' category, this might be a good fit, because there is a certain amount of focus on interacting with other people," Denton says.
Liz Kerr, a Washington D.C. resident, says her personality partly fits Type A's desire to track workouts and see results (she does spinning and tries to lift weights), but over time she has added yoga, which is a little less quantifiable.
"It just makes me feel better," she says. "It's hard to measure, but my flexibility is better and my balance is better."
Kerr says going to a class often inspires her to work harder (she played team sports in college), both because of the instructor and the people around her. In other words, you can be social and competitive at the same time. A good instructor, she says, will both encourage and challenge.
"If the instructor is good, he will make everyone, no matter what their fitness level, feel comfortable, and still make sure they get a good workout."
Kerr says she prefers the gym environment because she can choose her regular classes, lift on her own or try something completely new. But some people prefer boutique studios or outdoor alternatives.
How do you know what is best for you?
Ask yourself: What setting works for your personality?
The only way to truly know is to visit many places, whether they are boutique studios, gyms or outdoor boot camps.
"It's like a favourite restaurant - it's not just the food, it's whether you feel comfortable in the space," says McCall.
Once you have figured out your fitness personality and started your routine, then what?
McCall says to keep it up for six weeks or so and then start homing in on what your fitness goals for the year might be.
"Exercise is stress on the body," McCall says, so you need to let your body adapt to that stress in a measured way. Do not do what so many end up doing in the new year: Ramp up too fast.
"Measured" for a beginner might mean walking briskly and eventually introducing intervals on a treadmill for 30 minutes, two to three times a week, for a six-week period.
If you then need help in the goal-setting area (is it a weight-loss goal, a quality-of-life goal, a strength goal, or a race goal?), you should ask a trainer, McCall suggests.
"In the end, exercise should be fun, enhance your life and not just make you look good, but also feel good," he says.
Now, go figure it out: Who are you?

THIS ANCIENT GRAIN COULD SERIOUSLY STRENGTHEN YOUR HAIR!

 PIN IT
1/2
The ancient grain you know and love as quinoa is basically OG superfood status at this point. It’s undoubtedly in your go-to salad, lunch bowl, or dinner recipe due to its nutritional prowess—so, at a time when beauty labels are starting to be as clean as (healthy) nutrition labels, it comes as no surprise that the power grain is making its way to your personal care regimen. One way to incorporate it? In your hair-care routine.
At a time when beauty labels are starting to be as clean as (healthy) nutrition labels, it comes as no surprise that the power grain is making its way to your personal care regimen.
Take it from Boyce Clark, Ph.D., a biogeochemist-slash-single parent with a 12-year-old daughter who constantly struggled with frizzy hair. “A friend suggested a keratin straightening treatment, but when I saw it uses formaldehyde, that wasn’t something I was comfortable putting on my daughter,” he says.
So he did what any chemistry-savvy dad would do: Concocted a solution himself (which then became a brand of hair-care products called Lubricity Labs). Turns out the key ingredient for smooth, healthy hair was the power grain you know and love as quinoa. Makes sense, when you think about it (it’s a protein, after all).

The power of quinoa

Protein is a key factor in your own hair’s strength. Your strands are made out of keratin, which is a protein (in case you missed that in science class) so reinforcing it with another protein helps keep it strong.
“Quinoa is strengthening and moisturizing due to the amino acids content,” says Ginger King, a cosmetic chemist. “Amino acids are the building blocks of cells, so it’s essential for both skin and hair to function. It’s like nutritional supplements.”
Dr Clark discovered it’s beneficial for hair once he saw how well it smoothed his daughter’s hair. “What I learned is that hair frizzes because moisture absorbs into the strands and then they swell,” he says. So he zeroed in on the power duo of quinoa and glycolic acid (the latter prevents your keratin from being able to absorb water and stave off the swell).
“Quinoa proteins add strength and protection to your hair.”
“Quinoa proteins add strength and protection to your hair,” says Dr Clark. “Since the grain has the highest concentration of protein than any other grain, and it has [some of the] essential amino acids that your body can’t make on its own. When you walk around and let sunlight and oxygen interact with your strands, the outer layer of your hair becomes damaged—and the amino acids of quinoa match the natural keratin and fill in the gaps from that damage.”
He adds that the quinoa in his products are hydrolyzed, which means they’ve been chemically cut into smaller pieces via enzymes. “The quinoa’s chopped up to the point where it matches perfectly with the keratin in your hair,” Dr Clark explains. “So it’s really efficient when it comes to repairing.”
Not only is it a superstar strengthener and smoothing VIP, but it’s good for your colour as well. “Quinoa’s an antioxidant, which could help prevent your colour from fading,” says King. Well, I don’t know about you, but the grain is no longer going to only be found in my lunch.

Should we eat more seaweed?

seaweed, friday night feast










Although packed with goodness, naturally abundant in the UK and delicious to boot, seaweed is often overlooked as an ingredient. This week on Friday Night Feast, Jamie and Jimmy explore the health benefits of seaweed and have fun turning it into something really tasty. Here, Laura Matthews, Jamie’s Head of Nutrition, explains why we should think about cooking with seaweed.
Dried seaweed (or nori) is an incredibly nutritious ingredient. It’s a good source of protein – essential for the body to grow and repair itself – and it contains a whole host of vitamins and minerals, which our body needs in small amounts to stay healthy and work properly.
Seaweed is one of the few veggie sources of iodine, which is important for cognitive function and maintaining healthy skin. It is also a good source of vitamin B12, potassium, iron, copper and manganese.

Native British seaweed

As an island nation, we are blessed with a supply of some of the world’s great sea-based foods, including lots of seaweed! However, despite Irish and Welsh traditions such as laverbread, most people in the UK today have come to associate seaweed with Asian recipes.
If British seaweed with all its benefits has sparked your interest, have a look at these recipes for Coconut rice poké or Salmon and seaweed salad. Top chef Nathan Outlaw also has a lovely recipe for Cockle and seaweed risotto.
In terms of fresh varieties, kelp is a great ingredient to cook with because of its intense umami flavour – great for adding extra depth to soups and stews. So try something different, and give seaweed a whirl!

Autism from epilepsy drug can be passed on to three generations!

The epilepsy drug Epilim (sodium valproate) has caused physical and neurological abnormalities in 20,000 children in the UK alone—and a new study has discovered that the disabilities can be passed on to future generations.
UK MP Norman Lamb, who is campaigning to have the families properly compensated, has described the drug as "an extraordinary scandal".
The drug, which was introduced in the UK in the 1970s, can cause physical abnormalities, as well as autism and learning difficulties, and women with epilepsy shouldn't be taking the drug while they're pregnant, although many who have been affected by the drug claim they weren't made aware of the dangers.
A new study has discovered that the harm caused by the drug can be passed on to future generations. Scientists at Konkuk University in South Korea carried out the study on mice, and have postulated that children of people harmed by the drug are more likely to suffer from autism, seizures and hyperactivity—and these problems are passed to the second and third generations.
They believe that sodium valproate is another factor to explain the alarming rise of autism cases; autism affects one in 68 children in the US alone, a rate that represents a hundred-fold increase in just 10 years.

A third of Brits admit they are more likely to suffer from food envy in January! A third of Brits are more likely to suffer from food envy in January!


NEWS COPY - By Gemma Francis

Brits suffer from food envy once a week – with cheesy garlic bread, pizza and cheesecake most likely to 
bring on the green-eyed monster, a study has found.

Almost half of Brits have fallen victim to ‘food envy’ - feelings of regret about a food choice and wishing they
 were eating what’s on someone else’s plate instead.

But the cold days, dark nights and discipline required to stick to New Year’s resolutions may be contributing to feelings of jealousy.

A third of Brits admit they are more likely to suffer from food envy in January than at any other time of the
 year, as they abstain from eating certain foods, or cut back by ordering cheaper dishes, rather than what they really want.

To tackle the issue, the report commissioned by Just Eat, found four in 10 usually order the same food as other people simply to avoid feeling jealous.

And a quarter has changed their order altogether after seeing a friend’s choice.

Graham Corfield of Just Eat said: “When ordering a takeaway or dining with friends, there is nothing worse than feeling like you made the wrong choice when the person next to you has something you want more.

“With many trying to cut back during January, food envy is rife, particularly as we battle to make it to payday after the long month of having little or no money.

"With thousands of restaurants on Just Eat serving over 100 different cuisines, there’s plenty to choose from to hopefully help keep food envy at bay.”

The study of 2,000 adults found cheesy garlic bread is the biggest food envy-inducing starter, followed by nachos, crispy duck pancakes, ribs and onion rings.

When it comes to the main course, pizza is most likely to leave fellow diners battling the green-eyed-monster along with fish and chips, steak, a hearty cheeseburger and a juicy mixed grill.

A delicious slice of cheesecake is the most enviable dessert, followed by chocolate fudge cake, sticky toffee pudding, an ice cream sundae and a chocolate brownie.

But when food envy strikes, loved ones bear the brunt of almost one in four of those surveyed, via OnePoll.com, admitting it has led to rows with others.

And more than two-thirds said the disagreements are usually between them and their partner.

Falling outs have happened because someone tried to take food from their plate while others admit they have argued with their partner after they ordered something knowing they loved it but couldn’t eat it.

One in five have even stolen food from another person’s plate when they weren’t looking, while almost one in ten have switched meals with someone altogether.

Top 10 starter dishes most likely to cause food envy:
1. Cheesy garlic bread
2. Nachos
3. Crispy duck pancakes
4. Sticky ribs
5. Onion rings
6. Chicken wings
7. Onion bhajis
8. Duck spring rolls
9. Chicken satay skewers
10. Garlic fried prawns

Top 10 main course dishes most likely to cause food envy:
1. Pizza
2. Fish and Chips
3. Sirloin steak
4. Cheeseburger
5. Mixed grill
6. Chicken tikka masala
7. Fried Chicken
8. Chow Mein
9. Rack of ribs
10. Burritos

Top 10 dessert dishes most likely to cause food envy:
1. Cheesecake
2. Chocolate fudge cake
3. Sticky toffee pudding
4. Ice cream sundae
5. Chocolate brownie
6. Melting chocolate pudding
7.Chocolate chip cookie dough
8. Apple crumble
9. Waffles
10. Creme brulee
