Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins:

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in aperson’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
a. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat, like chicken. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)..
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water – best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave..

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer..Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food You get the same results, only without the dioxin.

So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Ballads, Mindful

Poor Lucas

Barely twelve,

Was his age,

When lost loved ones,

Due to tuberculosis,

Starting from father,

To his weak mother,

Leaving the lad,

Alone & stranded,

Neighbors helped,

But Lucas shied away,

Hurt & broken,

He walked away,

From bad memories,

Found work as apprentice,

In a town,

Man did barbering,

And doctoring too,

He taught Lucas,

How to work,

And so became he,

Well known lad,

Blended in with folks,

And the nice man,

Finding some relief,

From haunting thoughts,

Being accepted,

As a son & worker,

So ends the fuss,

Of poor boy Lucas!

Doubt Proved False

In the beautiful city of Blissentious, there lived a lad named Masruq. Composed in a family of 7, he was the eldest brother. Besides him, there were 3 sisters and 3 brothers. Being raised in a religious atmosphere, all had been trained to be decent and mannerly.  However, Mukhtar, next brother after Masruq, got tied up in the worldly desires. Since is start at college, Mukhtar had fallen in with the bad group.

Slowly, his actions changed and affected the whole house, but before going this far, his parents and Masruq had tried to stop him by giving constant reminders and soft talks.  But Mukhtar was completely changed. He became more rebellious when they talked to him and listened to the worst form of songs, media that was devastating, and skipped prayers.  He woke at different times and skipped breakfast or all the meals, and ate only junk. He would remain in a trance as if he weren’t in this world at all because of the music he absorbed.

Then, he started listening at loud volumes if he got into a really bad mood.  This disturbed the whole house because they were all busy with something and more importantly, didn’t go into this Haram stuff. Masruq talked him into stopping this behavior, which he did temporarily, but not for very long. He wasn’t listening to his parents much either.

Mukhtar was taken to the psychiatrist, after being taken to Sheikhs, as his behavior was changing.  According to psychiatrist, he was mentally disturbed.  So Masruq and family took him to be ill, until a decision could be reached and to keep the younger siblings calmed down.

Now, it was during this time that Masruq had tried to help Mukhtar out by spending time with him to find out what was bothering him. And the result had been that his parents started suspecting him to be a music fan too.  What had happened was that when Masruq went in Mukhtar’s room, music would be blaring, but he would tell him to shut it down, when he’s there, which he did after a while. So the younger siblings went and told his parents’ that “Bhaiyya is listening to music too because it’s too loud in Mukhtar Bhai’s room, but he’s still there.”

As a result, they accepted this rumor, instead of clarifying it. Masruq was hit hard. He was trying to do all a favor, but was thought of as doing bad.  He explained to his parents what his goal was, but they still stayed a bit cold towards him. Masruq was mad a bit at that, but he remained calm and did Sabr. He was the most farmabadar son in his family and knew how to treat parents. The only thing he did was pray to Allah at Tahajjud and major Salats to bring up the truth.

One day, a noble, pious ma, named Khalil Sahab, came to their home.  He was a friend of Masruq and Mukhtar’s father. He asked him about the family and he also saw that Masruq had come to say salaam, but not Mukhtar. He asked to meet Mukhtar, but of course, he didn’t come. Trusting his friend, their father told him what had happened and so he went to talk to Mukhtar, despite his father saying, “Khalil Sahab, he isn’t talking to anyone…” “I am afraid he may be rude to you..” Khalil Sahab just shook his head and walked on. They followed.

Khalil Sahab entered his room and said, “Assalaamu alaikum beite, how are you?” Mukhtar just stared at him without any response and continued listening to his song on headphone. Khalil Sahab repeated and held out his hand.  Mukhtar unwillingly stopped his music and replied, without shaking hands.  Then he asked Mukhtar some questions amongst which were, “Did any of your siblings discoursge or encourage you to do this?” Mukhtar responded, “They said nothing, save Masruq Bhai.” Khalil Sahab asked, “Did he encourage or discourage you?” Mukhtar said, “He discouraged me.” “That’s why I respect him, though I didn’t follow his advice completely.”

Here, their father was listening. This proved that Masruq was innocent.  He had been telling the truth.  Masruq thanked Allah, “Alhumdulillah wa shukru lillah!” Alla this fuss had started because he had been seen going in Mukhtar’s room frequently and the youngsters had given assumed info.  But what was Bhaiyya doing for real? No one knew!

Khalil Sahab blew some supplications on Mukhtar and left the room.  He told their father to continue these supplications, which were Suras Fatiha, Falaq, Nas, and Ikhlas along with Ayat ul Kursi and the last two ayats of Al Baqarah.  After some days, Mukhtar was back to normal.  He himself was guilty for his behavior, which was caused by the pressure from friends and evil eye.

Masruq was happy. He had been proven not guilty, and Mukhtar had come back to normal. His parents had apologized and patted him. The power of dua and yaqeen in Allah helped Masruq and his honesty, patience, and purity helped as well.

Therefore, “Don’t go by assumption but by evidence.”

The Fruit of Sincerity by Mindful

There was a boy named Tahir, who lived in New Brunswick. He was second eldest out of siblings.  From childhood to adulthood, he had been taught about Islam in a very understandable and nice way.  Therefore, he was a good example for his siblings, after his elder brother.  Because his older brother was on his own now, Tahir had the responsibility at home.  Even his friends knew how strict and firm Tahir was, but even then some were there with evil intentions.

One day, Tahir went to play badminton with a couple friends.  On the way back, they stopped for drinks at a local store.  Tahir didn’t take the drink that they took because it was root beer.  The boys’ tried to get Tahir to drink some giving excuses such as “It isn’t real beer!” “It’s just a name!”  But Tahir refused saying, “Say what you want boys, but what’s in doubt should not be drunk at all!” And he drank cream soda.

Next time, after playing their game, each boy was drinking their own drink, when one of the boys’ named Nasir gave him a can with the label of cream soda on it.  The label was in place so neatly that Tahir didn’t notice and drank it, keeping in mind that it was cream soda! The taste wasn’t much different, so Tahir was unaware.  The boys saw this and all laughed then the Nasir asked, “So…how’s it?” Tahir replied normally, “It’s good…because cream soda always is..” Nasir just laughed and kept quiet.

When Tahir arrived home, he felt some weird feeling inside himself.  Then he had a sudden urge to vomit and he ran to the bathroom.  After he was relieved, he said to himself, “This is all Nasir’s doing…Istaghfirullah!” “He fooled me into drinking root beer…La hawla wala quwwata illah billah!”

The next day, upon meeting Nasir, Tahir didn’t fight or shout, but calmly said, “May Allah guide you to the staright path…Aameen!” Nasir just stared and acted as if nothing was wrong, then said, “Hey pal, what’s the matter?” “you feelin’ ok?” Tahir continued, “You think you can get away with your pranks, but Allah is watching.” “He saves whom he wishes and destroys whom he wishes.” “Repent dude and come to the truth.”  Nasir had no effect. Instead, he said sarcastically, “Huh, listen pal, I don’t want preaching, you hear?” “So what if you found out eh?” “A prank…haha..nothing to be serious about.”  Tahir shook his head and said, “May Allah open your heart.” and left.

Because Tahir was kind, patient, and resistant, Nasir had an effect.  A couple days after, he came to Tahir, ashamed and apologetic. “Sorry man…thought about what you said…it made me feel guilty…” “I want to learn more dude…could you help me out?” Tahir forgave him and Nasir came more and more towards Deen.  Tahir became a top figure in the community for his personality and reputation.

Allah had chosen Tahir as a means of giving hidayat, so whether big or small, all folks respected and followed his advices. Tahir’s household was known as a source of light to those in the community and he excelled in all, worldly and Islamic things.
