1. "The biggest drop in breast cancer incidence came not from changes in treatment or detection, but from the decline in hormone replacement therapy usage when the Women’s Health Initiative data was released in 2002.”
2. Measurable cancer deaths on the decline.
(NERISSA’s NOTE: This due to stats tracking 5 year survival rate after detection. If you die from cancer after your 5th year, you are called a “cancer survivor” and cancer organizations stop tracking you. Because you survived it, of course.)
3. “We are using more chemotherapy, more radiation therapy, and more surgery on these individuals. With these treatments, we have achieved modest gains in life expectancy, but we are...

I ate dinner one night and an hour after it
my throat began to close, my breathing
grew shallow, my heart started to race,
and I looked for the phone to call 911.
I know enough self-healing methods to
calm myself down and used them to
get past this scare.
It passed but left me shaken.
What had happened?
I talked it over with Nerissa and we decided
to ask the waiter what was in the food I had
“Nothing much,” he said. “Tuna and herbs,
and some paprika.”
That may mean nothing to you, but I had
taken a food allergy test months earlier

Although none of these articles talk specifically about food allergies and sensitivities, they do talk about how diet is directly related to health. Even healin g is directly related to diet (and lifestyle) more than anything else.

Medical mistakes are the leading cause of accidental death in the USA. But there are NO MANDATORY statistics required to be kept by our medical industry. But all the leading research indicates that 200,000 Americans are killed by mistakes at doctor’s offices and hospitals across the country, each year.
Let’s do the math. We start with the commonly agreed upon research data of preventable medical injuries approaches 200,000 deaths per year in the United States. Next we take the CDC 2006 vehicle accident death toll of 43,600. And finally, divide 43,600 into 200,000. The final figure is 4.56. Round that figure up to 5.
To summarize, you are 5 times more likely to be accidently killed ...
