Rethinking Cancer Newsletter #11
Greetings to all from F.A.C.T. headquarters in hot New York City!
The heat, however, has not stifled our efforts to enhance our website. Check out the reconfigured Donate page which should make ordering simpler and faster. Note that we’re now carrying Ruth Sackman’s classic book, Rethinking Cancer, (instead of linking to Amazon), so that now your purchase becomes a tax-deductible contribution. (French readers heads up: this book is currently being translated into French. Will let you know when it’s available.)
Response to the unique new recipe book, Triumph Over Cancer by Doris Sokosh, long-term recovered cancer patient featured in the film, Rethinking Cancer, has been terrific. Doris is thrilled! As mentioned in previous newsletters, we also have a link to the excellent, information-packed Cancer — A Rational Approach to Long Term Recovery by Lou Dina, another long-term recovered patient in the film.
Something new on the News page! a Cartoon Gallery, containing all the cartoons from past newsletters, just in case you missed any. We’ll continually add to this. If you have any health-related cartoon ideas, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will, of course, give credit for anything we use. Help us spread the word: laughter is great medicine!
As always, we greatly appreciate your comments and contributions which enable us to share as much news and information with you as possible.
To your health!

Acid/Alkaline BalanceBy Ruth Sackman
One of the major nutritional goals is proper acid/alkaline balance. It is important that the diet be slightly more alkaline-forming than acid. This is the environment which is most conducive to health and the body’s natural repair process. READ MORE.
Excelsior (Alkaline) Broth
This is a Natural Healing classic, a soothing, satisfying, mineral-rich, broth to neutralize acidity and foster an alkaline environment — key to promoting health and healing. Sip the broth if you experience the burning sensation from an acid reflux reaction or an ulcer. Keep it on hand to maintain energy and alkalinity during a “healing crisis,” a fast or a common cold. Taken upon arising, this drink helps the body do its “housecleaning” by giving up the harmful toxins that have collected during the night. Or just sip anytime for a pleasant drink.
Place in a large soup pot:
| Potatoes (with skins, if organic), cut in large chunks
Onions, in large chunks
Optional additional (preferably organic) vegetables: sweet potato, celery, kale, rutabaga, turnip, carrot, fennel, garlic, etc. Really, any veggie is fine and will add to the pleasant taste.
A batch of broth will last at least 3 or 4 days in the refrig to be re-heated or taken at room temperature.
The World According to Monsanto
Monsanto is the world leader in genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial history. This century-old empire has created some of the most toxic products ever sold, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and the herbicide Agent Orange. Time and time again Monsanto has shown that it puts profits about the well-being of people and that we, as consumers, must question it’s noble talk of solving world hunger and protecting the environment.
