Staying Healthy this Fall

A science post seems so out of character for me.  I definitely didn't go to school to learn this stuff, but it's important to me now.  My husband used to call me Dr. Noble, now he just calls me a Quack Doctor.  However, one of my friends is also into it with me now, so we're just treating each other.  It's been pretty fun!  My ailments are canker sores, she's caught a cold.  On that note...cheers to good health!

According to Dr. Otto Warburg, winner of the Nobel Prize for cancer research. “Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body’s cells by an anaerobic cell respiration.” Otherwise, there is not enough oxygen at the cellular level.

In addition, an insufficient supply of oxygen to the tissues, is a major cause of our worst diseases, including heart disease.

So what can you do to increase the oxygen level to your cells and provide your body with the oxygen it needs for optimum health? Here are six suggestions:
1. Get more physical exercise
2. Eat dark-colored berries
3. Eat plenty of green, leafy vegetables
4. Avoid trans fats

Oxygen adds to the taste of water. For this reason a small amount of it is desirable in drinking water. We are all familiar with the "flat" taste which water often possesses after it has been standing in an open container for some time. The taste can be improved simply by shaking the water in a partially filled bottle. This reintroduced oxygen into the water will give it a more appealing taste.

Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease.The link beweeen insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce."
Dr. W. Spencer Way: Journal of the American Association of Physicians

In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oygen state. Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease. Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease."

Give me oxygen or give me death! Thanks for a thought-provoking post, Jennifer.
