What Everybody Should Know About Cancer and Diabetes Prevention with Maple Syrup...
Are you looking for a natural solution to reduce the risk of diabetes and slow down the growth of cancer cells? Your search is probably over because recent studies have shown that maple syrup holds the key to these problems. US researchers have found that maple syrup has the ability to substantially decrease the risk of diabetes. The syrup also showed great potential in slowing down the growth of cancerous cells. Maple syrup has thirteen active antioxidant substances. These antioxidants were previously unknown but were discovered only recently. Because of these antioxidants, researchers have firmed up that maple syrup has a great potential in fighting cancer growth, diabetes, and infections.
Food for Diabetic Sufferers...
Maple syrup contains increased levels of abscisic acid and phytohormone. These substances can effectively defend your body against diabetes and metabolic syndrome. The acid has a unique role in controlling diabetes. It releases insulin through the pancreatic cells and promotes enhanced sensitivity of fat cells to insulin. Because of these unique actions, maple syrup can control diabetes. The results of the studies were presented to the American Chemical Society in San Francisco. These results were carefully reviewed by other experts in the field.
The Anti Cancer Potential of Maple Syrup...
Quebec researchers, on the other hand, conducted a study to probe the impact of maple syrup on cancer cell growth. The results of this study were published in the Journal of Medicinal Food. According to the researchers, your favorite maple syrup can significantly slow down the growth of cancerous cells. It has been found that the syrup is effective in inhibiting the growth of brain, prostate, and lung cancer. However, the efficacy of the syrup on breast cancer growth was less significant.
Your Tasty Alternative to Fight Cancer and Diabetes...
Maple syrup can serve as your tasty alternative in fighting cancer and diabetes. There are many anti cancer foods today like blueberries, tomatoes, broccoli, and carrots. However, recent studies have shown that maple syrup is more effective against cancer compared to other anti cancer foods. Laboratory testing results also show that the syrup is more potent compared to the maple sap. It is also ideal to use the pure dark syrup rather than the lighter syrup. Dark syrup has high color oxidation. This is the reason why darker maple syrup should be preferred. So if you want a better alternative to fight cancer and diabetes, then your favorite maple syrup is a good option.

Fish Oil Benefits Even After Heart Attack, New Study Finds...
(NaturalNews) Study after study over the past decade has come up with the same conclusion: omega-3 fatty acids from fish or fish oil supplements decrease the risk of atherosclerosis, potentially deadly arrhythmias, heart attacks, and sudden cardiac death. Omega-3 fats have also been found to reduce heart failure death by about nine percent in patients with grave prognoses. But what about people with serious heart disease who have already had heart attacks. Is there any hope omega-3s can help their cardiovascular (CV) health, too? A new study of tens of thousands of patients shows the answer is a resounding "yes".
