As January draws to a close, we here at F.A.C.T. (Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy) are happy to report that 2010 has gotten off to a vigorous start! We have much news to share with you.
F.A.C.T. has just received word that our film, Rethinking Cancer, has been selected as a finalist in the European Spiritual Film Festival in Paris! (Good thing we put in those French subtitles!) Awards will be announced in March–will keep you posted.
The effort to expand information on our website continues. We’ve just added articles on the Resource page, including cancer case histories and items on exercise and fermented foods. Note also recent additions on the Audio and Practitioner Directory pages. In the next few weeks, you’ll find a new link on the Resources page for “Research” which will highlight studies related to various aspects of the Biorepair program. The first item in this Newsletter is a preview: a large, well regarded study revealing that environment may have a greater impact on cancer risk than genetics.
Due to popular demand, we’re in the process of adding Chinese subtitles to our next edition of the DVD, which should be available by the end of February. We’ve learned that in Asia there is great interest in the non-toxic approach to disease. In China, cancer is soon expected to become the #1 cause of death and, according to our sources, people are actively looking for ways beside the conventional protocols. We are very excited about increasing interest in the film internationally. More about this in future Newsletters…..
A reminder: our DVD is now available with new, lower shipping rates and a simplified checkout process.
Hope you’ll check the website frequently; it’s a real work in progress. We always love to hear your feedback about the film and/or website. You can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
What Causes Cancer?
Many people fear that, because family members were stricken with cancer, they, too, are destined to become victims. In our experience at F.A.C.T., however, though families share genetic inheritance, they may also share unhealthy eating patterns, high stress environment, etc. We feel that the much more important factor is individual lifestyle over which you have considerable control. This large, well-regarded study is compatible with our findings: READ MORE
Move It or Lose It!
“All parts of the body which have a function if used in moderation and exercised in labors in which each is accustomed, become thereby healthy, well developed and age more slowly; but if unused and left idle they become liable to disease, defective in growth and age quickly.”
—Hippocrates, the father of medicine, circa 400 B.C.
Life back in the good ol’ B.C. days — before Stairmasters, elliptical machines, stationary bikes and jogging tracks – may have been very different from today, but the human body has not substantially changed! If you’re interested in attaining and maintaining good health in our modern, fast-paced, stressed out, too couch-potato world, it would be wise to heed Hippocrates’ advice and include regular moderate exercise in your life. It’s as important as diet. READ MORE
Carob Fudge – A sinful-tasting, sinless treat!
1/2 lb. dried black mission figs, soaked in water 1-2 hours
1/2 lb. raw cashews, soaked 6-8 hours
1/4 lb.. dried dates, pitted and soaked 1-2 hours
1 1/2-2 tbsp. carob powder

Pour off soaking water and save. Put figs, cashews, and dates in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth (add a little soaking water, if too thick to blend). Remove mixture to a bowl and stir in carob powder and most of the walnut pieces. Pour into a shallow pan, spreading evenly. Garnish with remaining walnuts. Refrigerate ‘til hardened. Cut into squares and serve or store in container in the freezer.
Coconut Carob Drops: Add 1-2 cups of fresh-shredded or dissicated coconut to the fudge batter. Form into balls and roll in coconut. Refridgerate.
Mint Fudge: Add about 1/8 – ¼ tsp. pure peppermint oil to fudge batter. Experiment with other spices, i.e., anise, clove, etc.
Why worry? What can worry do?
It never keeps trouble from overtaking you.
It gives you indigestion and sleepless hours at night.
And fills with gloom the days, however fair and bright.
It puts a frown upon your face, and sharpness in your tone.
You’re unfit to live with others and unfit to live alone.
Worry? Why worry? What can worry do?
Thank you for your support. Here’s to a happy, healthy February…
