Eat Fruit, It's Good For You :)

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"
Ok, everyone should know that fruit is good for you and that you should be having at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. Having adequate servings of fruit and vegetables will promote good health and your health should be an important thing to maintain! Fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that may help protect you from chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases AND certain cancers. Fruits can protect your body from free radicals that can cause cancer. Fruit also is beneficial in reducing the aging process and I know you all want to look younger right?! Also, having more fruits and vegetables in your diet can help you lose weight along with eating lean meats, nuts, and beans. I would like to share with everyone an email I received from my sister. I'm not sure if it's entirely true but it makes sense and it's interesting.

Cancer Treatment:

An highly interesting article.

Dr Stephen Mak told …..that he treats terminal cancer patients in an
"un-orthodox" way, and many patients recovered. He explained, that
before he uses solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients, he
believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses.

See the article below

Dear Shereen,
Thanks for the email on fruits and juices. It's one of the strategies
to heal cancer. Lately, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%.
Cancer patients shouldn't die. The cure for cancer has already been
found, whether you believe it or not.
I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the
conventional treatments. Very few live for 5 years under conventional
treatments, and most live for only about 2 to 3 years... The
conventional treatments don't make any difference, because most cancer
patients also live for about 2 to 3 years without any treatment. It is
difficult to cure cancer patients who've undergone chemo and
radiotherapy, as their cells are toxic and weak. When there is a
relapse, the cancer spreads very fast, as the resistance is poor.
Thanks, and God bless.

Dr Stephen Mak

This is very informative!

We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and
popping it into our mouths. It's not that easy. It's important to know
how and when to eat fruit.

What's the correct way to eat fruit?


Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system,
supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other
life activities..

Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The
slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the
intestines, but it's prevented from doing so.

In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid.
The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach,
and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've heard
people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian
my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the
toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty
stomach. Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas.
Hence, you bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the
eyes - all of these will NOT happen if you eat fruit on an empty

There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are
acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to
Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have
mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of
Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT
from the cans. Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat
cooked fruit; you don't get the nutrients at all. You get  only the
taste... Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.

Eating a whole fruit is etter than drinking the juice. If you should
drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you
must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a
3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice
for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how
radiant you look!

KIWI: Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium,
vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!

AN  APPLE a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low
vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the
activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon
cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total
antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from
cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

EATING 2 - 4 ORANGES oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower
cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of
colon cancer.

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also
packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune
system. Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant.
Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C & Potassium..

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners
for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which
helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!
Can u believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this
applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however,
the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed,
slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will
break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid
food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats
and lead to cancer.. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after
a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks.
Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be
the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw. You may
never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of
people who have a heart attack while they're asleep do not wake up.
Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Be careful, and be
aware. The more we know, the better our chance to survive.
