As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time.
INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017
Dan always talks about the golden years and how we were going to get an RV and cross the United States. As you know, that didn’t happen. We went to plan B, which lead us to Mexico and stayed there for seven years. I’m not complaining, for Dan and I have each other and met some wonderful people along the way.
As we grow throughout the various times of our fruitful life, be they education, family, or work. There is one thing we all come to face during our older age.
They're known as The Golden Years of life and they're supposed to be filled with love and joy, or so we hope.
Yet, as we grow older, we come to recognize that that is not always so.
We lose a spouse, retire from work, and our bodies lose the energy they once had, our entire system seems like it's beginning to fall apart and we don't always know why or how.
What happened to Our Golden Years many people will often come to say, sometimes it's just plain hard to make it through the entire day, without coming to face some form of pain, I do say.
Socialization and friendship with others have become important to all, for with its use, games we play, and other types of participation, they can often come to ease the items of depression and stress.
And at the conclusion of each day "we should thank The Lord for another day of life in Our Golden Years, be they filled with joy or even cheers." by Kay I. Kramer
I am not a doctor nor a nutritionist; however, I am in the process to be. Through the past eight years managing my cancer and keeping cancer free without surgery, chemo and radiation, my passion and knowledge has brought me to you. I have learned from the finest professionals and functional physicians about lifestyle changes and have attended training sessions and conventions with my medical tourism group. I’m a big believer of inspiration and everything is possible.
Be true to your SOUL and keep your CORE healthy.
As I blog about vitamins and the benefits toward cancer and prevention; My quest is to gear you to seek a professional in functional medicine. The reason is, they are experts in reading lab work to see what you are lacking in and also will help you get to the root of your condition.
Today’s topic is vitamin E! A diet containing adequate amounts of vitamin E is important in maintaining general health, and may prevent against some forms of cancer. The ability of vitamin E to prevent or treat Alzheimer’s disease or heart disease requires further study.
Vitamin E, also known as alpha-tocopherol, is a natural antioxidant that is found in foods such as plant oils, eggs, nuts, green leafy vegetables, and whole grains.
Its major function is to neutralize free radicals, meaning that it protects cells from their damaging effects. Therefore, vitamin E is being investigated in conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, in which free radical damage is known to play a part.
Data on whether it can reduce cancer risk is mixed, and under some circumstances taking vitamin E supplements may actually increase risk.
For chronic disease prevention including conditions such as heart disease and cancer, a meta-analysis concludes that nutrients like vitamin E are best obtained from the diet.
To prevent progression of Alzheimer’s disease - One clinical trial showed that vitamin E reduced progression of Alzheimer’s disease. A few population-based studies suggest that high dietary intake of vitamin E may lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
To prevent cancer - Data on whether Vitamin E supplementation can reduce cancer risk is mixed. Large population-based studies suggest it may reduce risk of prostate and colorectal cancers in male smokers. However, initial data from the SELECT Trial shows vitamin E taken alone or with selenium for 5 years did not reduce prostate cancer risk, and even increased risk after 7-year follow-up.
Vitamin E also had no effect on lung, urinary tract, pancreas, mouth or stomach cancer risks. Another trial in patients with head and neck cancers found that patients who received vitamin E had a higher rate of second primary cancers compared with placebo, and that vitamin E may interfere with radiation therapy.
To manage cardiovascular disease - Data from clinical trials show that vitamin E supplementation does not help prevent heart disease, and it may increase risk for a certain kind of stroke.
Vitamin E is a nutrient that's important to vision, reproduction, and the health of your blood, brain and skin.
Vitamin E also has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are substances that might protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. If you take vitamin E for its antioxidant properties, keep in mind that the supplement might not offer the same benefits as naturally occurring antioxidants in food.

Foods rich in vitamin E include canola oil, olive oil, margarine, almonds and peanuts. You can also get vitamin E from meats, dairy, leafy greens and fortified cereals. Vitamin E is also available as an oral supplement in capsules or drops.
Vitamin E deficiency can cause nerve pain (neuropathy).
The recommended daily amount of vitamin E for adults is 15 milligrams a day.
Vitamin E is an excellent cancer-fighting nutrient. Vitamin E is fat-soluble and acts as a strong antioxidant, helping the body remove cell-damaging free radicals.
Vitamin E can significantly decrease the risk for prostate, colon, and lung cancers. In fact, low amounts of vitamin E may increase the risk of cancer.
It’s important to get enough of this vitamin daily from diet or supplements.
The recommended daily amount of vitamin E is 8 to 10 mg. You can also eat the following foods to supplement vitamin E in your diet; almonds, avocado, broccoli, beans, mango, spinach and olive oil.
Dan uses vitamin E, although he suggests that you do your research for there are different types. Again, it is wise to get a functional medicine doctor to advise you on the supplements that you may be lacking.
