Are you still eating processed foods? I'm not. I had stopped, BEFORE, my sister died of cancer at 51; a rare, mystery cancer no one could figure out how she got, & usually only seen in extremely old people and less than 2% of the population. She'd never drank, smoke, nor used drugs. Now, everything I read is like "Oh yeah; that's how she got it".
The Food Industry is Waging War on Your Cells with These 10 Toxic Ingredients
(and by the way, neotame is now added into everything, even certified organic food that is PROCESSED, and neotame is NEVER listed on the label)

There is a close relationship between food allergies, inflammation, and overweight. For more about this, see the authors Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss website.
I have (and currently am) resisting, with both heels dug in, trying going gluten free as a test. It reminds me of how I initially strongly resisted organic food; until my sister died, that is.
However, I've had allergic shiners all my life, and other classic symptoms of food sensitivities.
See also the GAPs diet:
I believe none of this would be necessary if mankind hadn't MESSED WITH and genetically altered, i.e. "improved", the grains God gave us to eat.
As soon as I have a career job again, I am going to get organic grains and pantry supplies from Azure Standard. If there's not one in my area, I'll gladly take on being the drop coordinator.

I love tabbouli; it's my fav parsley recipe.
Do you have any parsley recipes? Parsley is great for detox, and detox is a cornerstone of cancer prevention. The cucumber in tabouli is a high pH index food, so cucumber is also a friend in the cancer prevention arsenal. Here's my tabbouli recipe:
Except I use 3 bunches American curly parsley. I keep bulgur wheat on hand as a pantry staple; any time I can get reasonable prices on tomatoes, cukes, and parsley, I make tabbouli.
Parsley is a Blood Purifying Superfood
by Dr. David Jockers
(NaturalNews) Parsley is considered the world's most popular garnish. Parsley was originally cultivated in Europe and the Middle East but has become a staple in American cuisine. This herb has remarkable healing and blood purifying benefits that classify it as a superfood.
Parsley has been revered throughout history and used for both culinary and medicinal purposes. The Greeks made crowns of parsley to bestow upon their sports champions. It was used for the Hebrew celebration of Passover as a sign of rebirth in the spring. The Romans used it to deodorize corpses before funerals.
It contains a unique combination of nutrients that make it a powerful superfood. The volatile oil compounds myristicin, limonene, eugenol, and alpha-thujene have been shown to inhibit tumor cell formation. Additionally, parsley is rich in flavonoids-including apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol, and luteolin that have strong anti-oxidant properties.
Parsley also contains about three times the amount of vitamin C by volume as an orange. Vitamin C is extremely important for healthy immune function and youthful skin & joints. Additionally, it contains carotenoid anti-oxidants lutein and zeaxanthin which enhance eye function and help the body neutralize damage from UV radiation.
Super rich in chlorophyll
Parsley is super rich in chlorophyll, the energy producing substance that gives herbs and plants its characteristic green color. Chlorophyll helps to alkalize the body, purify blood, and form new red blood cells. In addition, the chlorophyll and flavonoids in parsley help to enhance cellular glutathione formation. Higher levels of cellular glutathione allow the body to detoxify and heal more effectively.
Through these properties, parsley is able to improve cellular oxygenation properties. Increased oxygenation = increased cellular energy = increased detoxification & healing mechanisms.
Parsley is a fantastic source of folic acid which is extremely crucial for its ability to reduce homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an inflammatory mediator that is linked with cardiovascular disease and brain degeneration. Folic acid is also important for pregnant women as it plays a critical role in fetal development. It is also an important nutrient for cancer prevention.
Parsley is also known as a powerful diuretic that reduces blood pressure and enhances kidney function. In particular, parsley increases sodium and water excretion thru urine and increases potassium reabsorption into the kidneys. This is particularly useful for anyone with poor circulation, swelling, cellulite, and other cardiovascular problems.
Juiced parsley is also believed to stimulate uterine contractions during labor. This juice has also been used to enhance skin and hair texture. It is also thought to reduce inflammation and mucous formation throughout the body. This is why many individuals see results using parsley to reduce symptoms of asthma, allergies, bronchitis, & urinary tract infections.
The rich chlorophyll content is also a great body odor and breath freshener. Chlorophyll acts as an anti-mutagen and it reduces odor causing bacteria which are responsible for producing bad breath and body odor. Parsley combines well with garlic and onions and reduces the strong pungent body odor these sulfur rich foods are known to cause.
Parsley dipped in apple cider vinegar is especially useful for reducing body odor and improving digestive function. The natural acids, chlorophyll and enzymes present in this food combination synergize to enhance the intestinal microflora. This is one of the best aids for neutralizing acid reflux, gas and bloating.
