There are a lot of different views and articles in the media and within various documents written by professionals expressing stories that link food-additives, chemicals and food colouring with cancer risk. Many people are left confused with the conflicting information and tend to feel overwhelmed with the presentation of the resulting information.
Most people around the whole globe would agree that the most important connections with reducing cancer risk would be weight loss, exercise and a healthier diet.
Plant foods offer natural compounds which protect our cells in a number of ways including thousands of phytochemicals, many are antioxidants that protect and repair our DNA. Some antioxidants appear to affect cancer cells, which in turn, control how they grow and spread. Also, the vitamins and minerals in fruits, vegetables, ‘whole’ grains and bean families also help repair DNA and control cell growth as well.
It is quite apparent that some foods have a direct relation to specific types of cancer. Some studies have established that fiber seems to lower the risk of colon cancer and there is an ample amount of relevant information which shows the benefits of eating ‘whole’ foods because they contain less fat and calories.
Eating organically tends to be more expensive, the costs related to the benefits of eating a diet higher in nutrients and protective phytochemicals should not necessarily be a concern in your everyday grocery listing.
Growing your own organic food is not only a healthier option and therapeutic for our lifestyles, it also assures you of the complete value of food that is not sprayed with pesticides leaving residues which most non organic crops contain. This helps all of us regain a sort of control which for some people is a necessity for their everyday health and well being.
It is obvious that purchasing organically grown foods is more expensive and no one should have to be deprived of healthy food because they can’t afford it. For example if you’re eating fewer fruits and vegetables just so you can afford them, this is not a good idea. You have other options. For instance, when using your very own LED grow lights you can produce a variety of leafy greens for your diet as it promotes nutritional diversity. Different foods have different amounts of nutrients. By growing and eating a variety of fresh leafy greens, you’ll get a more balanced amount of vitamins and minerals all year round.
We have made the decision to offer our lights at a reduced price for cancer patients (Cancer Patient and Survivor Pricing) because we have directly experienced the impact which relates to having cancer. Cancer Patient and Survivor Pricing program is to offset the costs associated to organically grown food produce to promote well being to those who are in need of such gratification, through recovery as well.
