A Plan for Living a Long and Healthy Life
Bad Things to Do and Consume, Things to Do in Moderation
plus Lifestyle Advice - Part 3 of the Series

by Tony M. Isaacs
author of "
Cancer's Natural Enemy"
excerpted and adapted from the upcoming "How to Live a Long and Healthy Life"

Bad Things to Do & Consume

  • Sugar and just about all sweeteners including corn syrup, fructose, honey, sucrose, maltodextrin, dextrose, molasses, rice milk, white grape juice, sweetened fruit juice, brown rice syrup, maple syrup, date sugar, cane sugar, corn sugar, beet sugar, succanat and lactose. (OK, this one may be hard to do, but if you have cancer, or have ever had cancer, you MUST cut all the sugar you can out of your diet because, quite simply, sugar feeds cancer!  If you don’t have cancer, go very easy on the sugar, or, better still, substitute Stevia or Lo Han whenever possible.)
  • (You do want to live a long time, right?)
  • (Grilling can produce carcinogens, which are always present in charred meats and other foods.  At high temperatures, certain natural constituents of the meat—the simple sugar glucose, the amino acid creatinine, and additional free amino acids—can chemically react to form carcinogenic heterocyclic amines (HCAs). Typically, the longer meat cooks at a high temperature, the greater the production of HCAs. Indeed, low-temperature cooking or a quick searing may generate none of the carcinogens.  On January 31, 2005 the National Toxicology Program (NTP), part of the National Institutes of Health, published its latest update of materials known to cause cancer in people and others that are "reasonably anticipated" to do so and among the 246 agents on the lists are the heterocyclic amines that develop in meats when they're cooked too long at high temperature.  Frying, especially in animal fats or processed vegetable oil is supremely unhealthy.)
  • – (The evils of microwaving are so bad and so dangerous that it gets it’s own chapter in my book titled “Nuke Your Microwave Oven!”.  Put simply, microwaving in plastic may create cancer causing dioxins and microwaving in ANY kind of container alters foods unnaturally so that nutrients are destroyed and cancer and disease causing compounds are created.  Man has evolved to eat food cooked by heat from the outside in, not food cooked from the inside out by being bombarded with microwaves.)
  • (Aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, although there is a likelihood that the disease itself is responsible for most of the greater concentrations of aluminum found in the brains of Alzheimer’s sufferers.  If you must use aluminum Anodized aluminum is the best bet, because the anodizing process seals the surface of the cookware.)
  • (Teflon, or polytetraflouethylene,  when cooked at any temperature causes fumes that are toxic to birds.  Cooked at the easily obtainable stovetop level of 680°F, Teflon pans release at least six toxic gases, including two carcinogens, two global pollutants, and MFA, a chemical lethal to humans at low doses. At temperatures that are reached on stovetop drip pans (1000°F), non-stick coatings break down to a chemical warfare agent known as PFIB, and a chemical analog of the WWII nerve gas phosgene. Some products that use Polytetraflouethylene: Heat lamps, Portable heaters, Sole plates on irons, Ironing board covers, Burners on stove tops, Drip pans for burners, Broiler pans, Griddles, Many cooking utensils, Woks, Waffle makers, Electric skillets, Deep fryers, crock pots, Hot air popcorn poppers, Coffee makers, Bread makers, Non-stick rolling pins, Lollipop molds, Corkscrews, Never-Stick-Stainless Steel, Stockpots, Roasters, Non-stick gingerbread molds, Pizza pans, Tortilla presses.)
  • Animal Fats (Especially animal fats from animals subject to feed lot practices and non-organic meat.  Animal fats are generally not so good for your waistline, but the worst thing about most animal fats is likely the pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics they contain.)
  • (Trans Fats, or Hydrogenated Vegetable Fats, are  the very worst fats of all, often found in fried foods and processed foods such as cookies, crackers and pastries.  Refined oils lose most of their nutritional value in the refining process.)
  • Potatoes (Good grief, no non organic meats and now my taters too? Yes, sorry!  Except for yams that is)
  • Sunburn and prolonged exposure to the sun
  • Salt (Except for sea salt.  Due primarily to chemical processing in the manufacture of commercial food salt, excess salt is linked to high blood pressure and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and life-threatening heart attacks each year.  Most of us eat an average of 10 times more salt than we should, and no wonder, as it is found in abundance in most foods in a normal diet, processed and natural. The average fast food hamburger, for example, contains over twice the amount of salt one should eat in a day.  Avoid foods high in salt, and avoid any added salt except sea salt and except when large amounts are lost from the body through sweating.)
  • Soda pops (eight teaspoons of sugar per can for naturally sweetened ones, dangerous artificial sweeteners in diet ones!)
  • Tap Water (tap water has been shown to have traces of over 2100 toxic chemicals, including pesticides, and many of these have been shown to cause cancer, cell mutation, nervous disorders and possibly Alzheimer’s Most of the tap water in the U.S. is chlorinated – we essentially put bleach into our drinking water because it is cheap. Besides the resveratrol in the red wines they drink,  the French likely  have much lower cancer rates because they drink oxygenated water instead of chlorinated.  According to the U.S. Council Of Environmental Quality, "Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine." It should also be pointed out that the body absorbs chemicals in tap water from baths, showers, dish washing, etc.  Only a whole house filtration system is safe.)
  • Processed Foods (including Breads, Pasta, Non Whole Grain Cereals , Bagels, French fries, Chips , Pretzels, Waffles, Pancakes, & commercial Baked goods)
  • Fast Foods (Do I really have to explain?)
  • Peanut Butter (Most peanut butters are hydrogenated to keep from separating.  If you must have peanut butter on rare occasions, natural peanut butter would be better, but even natural peanut butter often contains aflatoxins, near ubiquitous fungal poisons that naturally lace a range of foods in tiny traces—especially peanut butter. This known human carcinogen was among chemicals on the National Institute of Health’s National Toxicology Program’s first national compilation of cancer-causing agents, in 1980.)
  • White bread and bleached flour (Just empty calories that provide little nutrition and contribute more to obesity than any other food substances in our diet.  In the process of making flour white by bleaching it with dangerous chemicals like the ones that make linens white, half of the good unsaturated fatty acids that are high in food value are lost in the milling process alone, and virtually all the vitamin E is lost with the removal of wheat germ and bran. As a result, the remaining flour in the white bread you buy, contains only poor quality proteins and fattening starch. Also, about 50% of all calcium, 70% of phosphorus, 80% iron, 98% magnesium, 75% manganese, 50% potassium, and 65% of copper is destroyed.  About 80% thiamin, 60% of riboflavin, 75% of niacin, 50% of pantothenic acid, and about 50% of Pyridoxine is also lost. .)
  • Alcohol (OK maybe a beer or two on occasion if you just have to, but no more!  Much better would be an occasional glass of red wine during the evening)
  • Soy or soy-based foods - except for fermented soy products such as miso, natto or tempeh (Sorry, tofu lovers, but, regardless of the hype of the well-heeled soy industry, non-fermented soy products can cause bad, bad things – and weakening your immune system is just one of them!   For more information, reach the chapter in my book’s Hall of Shame section titled “Concerns Regarding Soy”.)
  • Canola Oil (Surprised?  Well, of all the cooking alls, only olive oil, hemp, sunflower, palm and coconut oil are healthy. Read your food contents labels carefully to avoid canola and soy – especially Peanut Butter labels.  Most major peanut butter brands take out all the peanut oil and replace it with canola.)
  • Margarines and cooking oils (See “Trans Fats, above, and the information about soy.)
  • Foods of all kinds with high glycemic index and/or glycemic load values (Refer to the section of my book “Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load” for more information.)
  • Aspartame (Nutrasweet), Sucralose (Splenda), Saccharine and other artificial sweeteners (All have demonstrated carcinogenic qualities and other health problems.  Use Stevia or Lo Han, sold as supplements at health food stores and widely available on the web for less than $5 for a fifty packet box)
  • MSG (Avoid at all costs! Another villain of the highest order that gets its own chapter later in the “Hall of Shame” section of my book.  MSG, or Monosodium glutamate, is described as a mutagen and reproductive effector by the Center for Disease Control in their Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances.  It is used in a huge variety of foods and other products, and is disguised under at least 40 different names.  It can cause cell mutations, brain damage, neuroendocrine disorders, seizures, headaches, asthma, obesity, diabetes, bladder pain and other ailments.)

Things to Do in Moderation

  • Fish (the best fish are oily fish such as wild salmon and cold-water fish. Eat baked, roasted or poached – no frying or charring.  Sadly, fish would be recommended as a “Do” and recommended in abundance if it weren’t for the fact that just about all fish is now showing signs of toxins, especially mercury.)
  • Turkey (baked or roasted, small portions, no frying, charring or smoking)
  • Other lean meats (choose organic, grass fed meats.  Ostrich and bison are both better choices than beef)
  • Eggs (Actually, eggs are pretty healthy for you, despite years of misinformation – so long as you select organic eggs from free ranging field hens or the Omega 3 eggs.  Whole eggs do have a good dose of calories though, so an even better plan would be to mix your eggs 50/50 with an egg substitute that is made from 98%+ real eggs, provided it’s not one of the brands that contains ingredients you can’t readily pronounce!)
  • Oat Bran, Rice Bran, Whole Wheat & Other Whole Grains (Oat and Rice Bran are best, but maintain a modest overall intake of grains regardless of your choice).
  • Dairy Products (use no fat or low fat organic milk or substitute rice milk or almond milk – but use sparingly due to sugar content)
  • Dark Chocolate (Dark Chocolate made with 60% or more cocoa has been shown to have health benefits for the heart and to enhance mood; however, if you have cancer, the added sugar is probably not worth the benefits of the chocolate)
  • Beets, Jicima, Carrots, Winter Squashes, Yams, & Eggplant (use in moderation due to high carbs, although yams have some very good anti-cancer properties)
  • Fermented soy products (Soy protein is good for helping to lower “bad” cholesterol; however, only fermented soy products are safe.  Traditional fermented soy products such as miso, natto and tempeh, which are usually made with organically grown soybeans, have a long history of use that is generally beneficial when combined with other elements of the Oriental diet including rice, sea foods, fish broth, organ meats and fermented vegetables.  While fermented soy products contain protein, vitamins, anti-carcinogenic substances and important fatty acids, they can under no circumstances be called nutritionally complete. The soybean lacks vital sulfur-containing amino acids cystine and methionine. These are usually supplied by rice and other grains in areas where the soybean is traditionally consumed. Soy should never be considered as a substitute for animal products like meat or milk. Claims that fermented soy products like tempeh can be relied on as a source of vitamin B12, necessary for healthy blood and nervous system, have not been supported by scientific research. Finally, soybeans do not supply all-important fat soluble vitamins D and preformed A (retinol) which act as catalysts for the proper absorption and utilization of all minerals and water soluble vitamins in the diet. Soy products actually increase requirements for vitamins B12 and D.)

Lifestyle Advice

  • Avoid Stress at all costs! - a great way to reduce stress is EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique
  • Get Plenty of sunshine – (a half hour each day.  The sun is the great energizer and source of life.  It also converts cholesterol to vitamin D)
  • Wear Sun block whenever you are in the sun for any length of time
  • Get Lots of Fresh Air (open those windows!  Eat your lunches outside.  Go for walks daily.  Sleep with the windows open at night whenever possible – get burglar bars if you are worried.)
  • Get Air Purifiers
  • Invest in a Good Water Filtration System (The average glass of tap water in the U.S. contains traces of over 2000 chemicals, many of which are pesticides, carcinogens, solvents and poisons.  Drinking filtered water is not enough – your body absorbs more chlorine and fluorine from a bath or shower than it does in 8 glasses of tap water.)
  • Take time to relax and meditate.
  • Have fun and be happy!  Laughter is good medicine for the body and soul!
  • Get plenty or sleep – 8 hours each night
  • Exercise every day in moderation (There are just too many benefits to list – just realize this: it doesn’t have to be overly hard or painful, but it really should be done if you want to live longer, healthier and happier.)
  • Eat a healthy breakfast every day (just be sure to include fruits, juices and other healthy foods, such as omega 3 eggs, yogurt with blueberries, and oatmeal, and don’t overly rely on  grains, cereals and bread.  Avoid sugar and coffee – try hot green tea instead.)
  • Drink lots of filtered water or reverse osmosis distilled water and green tea.
  • Liver Cleanse (Perform once a year at least.  The liver is the body’s main detoxification site and it is essential to have a liver in good condition to maintain overall good health.)
  • Colon Cleanse (Also perform once a year. Bowel movements are the basis of your health. If you don't have at least 1 bowel movement per day, you are already walking your way toward disease.   It is said that death begins in the colon, and indeed, colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S.)
