Like the other videos that we have seen that show exactly what is happening in a specific process, the cancer one delivered as well. Seeing exactly what is happening inside the body and how, why, and where cancer spreads, is so much more clear to me now. Good video.
The next 2 videos ties in with the whole class. The bottom line is if you eat the correct foods your body will naturally fight off so many bad diseases and cancers. The message throughout the course has been loud and clear. Diet means everything for our health.

I couldn’t have said it better myself… It all comes back to our diet. If we are eating healthy vitamin rich foods and skipping out on all the fatty, greasy, processed foods, our chances of getting one of these dreaded diseases is decreased substantially. I think we all should come back to these videos and watch them again on a regular basis b/c this has just motivated me to get back on track with my daily nutrition. After awhile, we all seem to forget how unbelievably important our daily diet is for our health. And when we are reminded of all the horrible painful diseases that we can get when we don’t eat right, changing our diet doesn’t seem that difficult anymore….

“it all comes back to our diet” So accurate! I agree with evertyhting that was said on these comments!

my nana took the saying an apple a day keeps the doctors away way to extreme when I was young. she applied it to everything. she would tell me what all the vegetables did for your body and fruit as well. she was strict on them vitamins too. her mom died from cancer and she swore she would try her best to stay healthy and try to not get it. so far so good. she is healthy as can be at her age.

I am sure that is why we are seeing more and more cancer at younger ages now days. we are a fast food society and putting horrible things in our body, myself included, mainly because of convenience.

I never really believed that, but after watching so many of these videos I am definitely convinced that we could cure and prevent so many diseases and ailments by simply changing our diets and eating better!

I agree! Diet is everything especially when you are healing or ill. Most everyone in the hospital is placed on a specific diet to maximized recovery of the body.

There are too many foods out there that are not good for that cause so many diseases or side effects so why do they sell them and produce them. What is good for you they change their minds so many times that you cant keep up. so why try.

Reply

PLP July 28, 2011 at 12:39 am

I agree with you on most of this, but why not try? Even if you partially eat what we should, isn’t that better than nothing? I would think so anyway. So don’t just give up, at least partially try.

I know i agree it is so crazy to think about the foods that are popular. Most of the foods are so unhealthy but are easily accessible. Diet is the most important thing to maintaining a healthy life yet the media and big corporations advertise, produce, and sell so many things that steer people away from a healthy lifestyle weather it be food or just products that are toxic to our system.

Reply

dahlke11 April 4, 2016 at 8:18 pm

Our biggest problem is in fact that the foods that are so accessible are the worst for us. This includes mainly junk foods, that I enjoy the most. I agree diet is the most important thing to maintaining a healthy life style we just have to watch what we eat.

Ashleigh W. July 15, 2016 at 8:23 pm

Its sad that a healthy lifestyle is not advertised the same way a big mac is.

Sydney Nichole July 19, 2016 at 9:47 pm

I don’t understand why eating healthy hits the pocketbooks much more than eating unhealthy. Fruits, vegetables, and salads are much more expensive than a bag of potato chips or a quarter pounder and fries.

abrewer2016 November 8, 2016 at 11:12 am

The prices of things is a big issue. Salads cost way more than a cheeseburger does. So it makes it more affordable to just go buy a cheese burger instead of a salad. It’s really sad. To bad they don’t make healthier food more affordable.

EPUGH November 2, 2016 at 4:15 pm

It is all about money and convenience… It is cheaper to create boxed, frozen, and processed food in bulk. Fresh food spoils faster and takes more work to manage. It is horrible. I wish they could not create that stuff but I am sure more people would starve and food supply would be low.

afriedl November 2, 2016 at 6:54 pm

I will be forever baffled by the fact that it is cheaper to eat chemicals than natural foods.

Jgaines November 3, 2016 at 12:40 am

Yes. It is hard trying to eat healthy because it is so expensive. Buying a salad from a fast food place rather than a burger is going to be at least $2 dollars more. Everything healthy is more expensive and I do not understand why either.

TS=2 July 20, 2011 at 8:55 pm

WOW MORE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT EATING HABITS AND HOW THEY CAN HURT YOU IN THE LONG RUN. MY MOTHER WHO ALWAYS TAKE SO MUCH SUPPLEMENTS AND EAT HEALTHLY JUST ENDING UP WITH CANCER SO EATING HEALTH MIGHT HELP THE RISK BUT YOU CAN`T STOP FROM GETTING CANCER. IF YOUR MET TO GET IT THEN YOU CANT HELP IT FROM COMING. NOW EATING RIGHT AND HEALTH CAN HELP ALOT BETTER THAN MAKING WORST. I LIKE THESE VIDOE AND ENJOY EVERYONE OF THEM.

Very good to discover that only by our eating habits, we can considerably prevent cancer. Good animation in the first video to explain how cancer develops in human body. Good to know that supplements cannot helps someone to prevent cancer. The third video gave me the right nutrition plan to prevent cancer by eating healthfull. Good videos.

These videos were very informative I just wish that I could cut out on some of the meat and incorporate more fruits and vegetables than what I do now. Its very interesting to know that green tea could prevent cancer. I have never really liked green tea but this may challenge me to drink some every now and then.

PEE2 July 20, 2011 at 4:19 pm

Hi LLM, it takes only one step to do that. If you try one time, the nexts should be easy for you. All what it takes, it is to start. Idid it . It worked for me, maybe it will for you.

AMG July 18, 2011 at 11:55 pm

The first video was interesting. You hear people talk about cancer running in the genes but to actually understand how it actually happens is another thing. I was very neat to to watch how the cells divide into an uncontrolled way.

Cancer is actually pretty amazing, in terms of how it works. I really enjoy reading on cancer, and I think one day we will have a cure. Already, we understand more about cancer than we did 10-20 years ago.

Angelena essary November 8, 2016 at 9:19 pm

I found that very interesting as well.

KNE2 July 17, 2011 at 10:41 pm

I thought the video of how the cells in our body divide was very interesting. I had no idea that green tea helps prevent cancer, along with fruits and vegetables and whole grains. I don’t like fish, so eating it twice a week is out for me. I wish I liked it better, since one of the videos said that it reduces the risk of cancer by 30-50%. I have never thought of an apple with the skin being a preventative for cancer. I will definitely start buying more apples to snack on now. I didn’t realize how bad red meat is for you, until I started watching these videos. I used to just eat chicken and turkey, until I met my husband. Now I also eat hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, fried shrimp, some tuna, and bacon. I think I was better off just eating chicken and turkey.

We use ground turkey in spaghetti, tacos, chili, etc and its pretty good. You cant really tell the difference except the texture is a little softer.

THIS VIDEO WAS VERY INFORMATIVE. IT EXPLAINED ALOT TO ME ESPECIALLY WHY OUR CELLS DIVIDE. I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING THAT THEY ACCUMULATE MORE WHEN DNA IS BROKEN DOWN. FRUITS AND VEGETABLES ARE GREAT FOR ONES BODIES BUT I DIDN’T KNOW THAT THE HELD SUCH A SIGNIFICANT ROLE FOR OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM. I RECENTLY FOUND OUT HOW BAD RED MEATS WERE FOR ONE HENCE COLON CANCER. VERY GOOD VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!1

MLW2 July 14, 2011 at 7:13 pm

Hopefully soon we will come up with a cure for this horrible disease. These videos were interesting because they talked about how you can catch it or it be passed on from generation to generation. I have quite a bit of people in my family that have died of cancer, so taking care of your body like not smoking can help you from getting it.

Reply

lmp2 July 16, 2011 at 12:26 am

I TO HOPE THEY FIND A CURE FOR THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE AND FAST. CANCER RUNS A LOT IN MY FAMILY TO. I WAS WATCHING DR. OZ ONE DAY AND NOT ONLY IS THERE FIRST AND SECOND HAND SMOKE BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT A THIRD EXIST. IT IS CARRIED THROUGH THE CLOTHES THAT YOU WEAR. I THOUGHT THAT TO BE INTERESTING BECAUSE THAT THE BIGGEST WAY CHILDREN AND INFANTS ARE EXPOSED TO IT. WE THINK THAT NOT SMOKING AROUND THEM WILL HELP THEM BUT THEY CAN ABSORB THE TOXINS FROM THE SMOKE THROUGH OUR CLOTHES.

Reply

sboyett April 8, 2015 at 11:28 pm

There are tests that you can get now that can tell you if you are carrying the gene for certain types of cancer… I know they have the test for breast cancer. If you test negative, that doesn’t mean that you wont get breast cancer, but if you test positive then you more than likely get it. I think the test is a good thing. Alot of women are deciding to get breast removal and implants when they learn they test positive. If they do that, then they will know for sure they wont get it.

dasmith March 4, 2016 at 6:16 pm

It is interesting to me that cancer can be passed through generations. I truly believe some of the cancer causes are the food we buy at the stores. Who knows how it is treated, what is fed to the animals, and the chemicals they use to treat the animals and vegetation scares me.

Reply

Ashleigh W. July 15, 2016 at 8:24 pm

Yes, me to! We don’t know what we are eating. There are so many meats being pumped with hormones and our veggies are being wiped down with pesticides, its scary.

MRC2 July 12, 2011 at 2:51 pm

Once again, these videos were very informative. I really want to grow myself a garden so I can have all the fresh vegetables I want and with no contaminates. Just another reason to believe what God made is better for us than what man has made. Are you beginning to see the picture more clear people? When people start messing with something that is already perfect, bad things happen. Look at all the benefits of natural foods. Americans are desensitizing their taste buds to the over powering tastes of man-made food items. This makes really good foods taste bland. I am going to go eat an apple right now.

I’ve taken the same message here. If it’s grown from the ground, it’s typically good for you. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc. Have to eat them!

Reply

HMH2 July 11, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Much of what we are learning seems to have a theme that if you eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains then you will have better health, wellness, and possibly longevity. I have been a vegetarian for about five years and it was one of the best decisions that I made for my health and happiness. I’ve learned to become a more creative cook and I’m not limited to meat and potatoes. Now, it’s good to know that this lifestyle decision may even help prevent cancer.

Reply

MRC2 July 12, 2011 at 2:56 pm

I am glad being a vegetarian is working out really well for you. I am closer to a vegetarian now then I have ever thought I would be. I do love my meat but it is only stuff like fish and egg whites. I like chicken but it has become less appealing to me. Especially after watching the movie Food Inc. If you have not watched it then you really need to. That goes out to everyone. People are so blind from how and where our food comes from. No wonder there are so many cancer cases. People you need to get informed. Start buying organic. Yes, I know it is more pricey but is your life and your child’s life not worth those few extra pennies?

Reply

LLM July 19, 2011 at 8:28 pm

wow. that is awesome that you are a vegetarian. I wish I could eat more fruits and vegetables than what I do now. I would love to cut out on eating so much meat and eat a variety foods.

Reply

bst July 21, 2011 at 12:44 am

They would just change them once you find that you like them they would find another way to say they arent good for you.

JM2 July 23, 2011 at 10:04 am

Being a vegetarian has it’s benefits. But I don’t know how you can stand to be around a steak cooking on a grille and not go insane knowing you won’t be able to eat any of it. I’m all for eating healthy, especially after this class. My wife and I have modified a lot. But you can have meat in moderation and be perfectly fine. You only live once and who wants to live to 100 if you didn’t enjoy the ride. I’m glad it’s working out for you but I’ll continue to indulge in a moderate way.

tynapp July 24, 2016 at 7:35 pm

Great for you. I believe vegetarians are the healthiest people on this planet hands down. With all the plant based proteins and antioxidants from fruits. But, me myself just can’t do it.

Ashleigh W. July 15, 2016 at 8:26 pm

Good for you! What a beautiful way to live. That’s the problem people are afraid that being a vegetarian will limit their food choices and it doesn’t. It helps prevent all these nasty diseases naturally.

I do think cancer can be cause by what we eat but also it can just run in the family. I see that with my own eyes where the person eats healthy her hole life and don`t smoke but end up with lung cancer. To me it just don`t make sense.

I have always believed that cancer was caused by mainly what we eat. If we all ate healthy fresh food that was baked or steamed we probaly would be cancer free. Healthy food unforntaly comes at a higher price. Maybe one day i will be able to resist the taste of fried foods and change my diet to a healthy one.-JB

I crave fast food. We eat out at least once a day. It’s awful. We are all too lazy to go to the store and cook so we just order take out or go through the drive through. We are the typical american family. That is very sad to say.

MAO July 30, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Unfortunately, I must say I do the same thing. Our economy forces both parents to work and alot of days I am so tired from working all day it just seems so much easier to go to McDonald’s drive-thru for dinner.

Ashleigh W. July 15, 2016 at 8:28 pm

Most people are, that’s why these videos are so great. We are learning what food to avoid and incorporate in our diets to prevent disease. The fast food restaurants do not care if you get sick, we have to care enough to stop treating our bodies this way. I think you should take it one day at a time and soon you all will hate fast food.

B-N April 29, 2011 at 4:57 pm

I’m in major trouble because of the lists of food that helps prevent cancers…the only things I actually enjoy on that entire list is Orange Juice and apples…and cancer also runs on my mother’s side of the family which doesn’t really help things either.

I was so interested in all the cancer fighting foods that I learned about in the second video. Makes you wonder why we do not eat these things all the time so we can try and prevent the development of cancer!!! The drink green tea is not one of my favorites but when you hear that the place where it is most harvested is the lowest cancer in the world it makes you want to drink it all the time.The 3rd video shows what we should and shouldn’t eat to fight cancer. A good way to do that is to eat lots of fruits, vegtables, and fiber. Brocoili, genger, fish, and blackberries are all leading foods. I like the idea of a “Gut Friendly Diet.” I’m going to try some of these methods out.

Over the weekend we found out that my sister in law has cervical cancer. It is said that atleast one out of 10 people have cervical cancer but just do not know it. The videos are true she has to change her diet completely. More fruits and vegetable and a lot of soy products. Cancer is a very scary thing to go through andd is very hard for a family to deal with.

Cancer, like all the other diseases studied in this class, can be prevented through our diets. The video encouraged us to eat colorful fruits and vegetables and to reduce the intake of red meats. Fish was important in the prevention of cancer. I have never had green tea but I will be looking in the store for it.

We also need to protect our skin from the harmful and cancer causing sunlight, and watch the cleaning products we use in our homes or the chemicals we use in the summer time to keeping the pest and weeds away.

I like how the first video was done. It was interesting to see how cancer formed then how it formed secondary cancers that was distributed in the blood stream to other parts of a body.

Increasing you chances of avoiding cancer can be as easy as going to your local grocery store. There are so many choices that are absoloutly delicious! 🙂

Good nutrition is a vital must to building a healthy gutt. Fruits and vegetables are the best. Fiber is another good thing to consume in moderation and helps in weight loss as well because it helps you to feel full longer in-between meals.

I enjoyed all of these videos especially the first, which really helped explain the formation and growth of cancer, as well as the second, which gave great advise on what to eat to help prevent cancer. I learned a few new things from the second video such as that broccoli is a very important food because it contains isothiocyanate and folate, both of which have been proven successful in helping prevent cancer. Luckily for me I love broccoli! 🙂 I also learned that Japan has the lowest cancer rate due to the widespread consumption of green tea which has made me decide that I am going to try to start drinking green tea, even though I’m not crazy about the taste.

i totally agree with these videos.cancer has alot to do with what we put in the body.nowadays almost every affordable foods out there in the markets has chemicals added in them.if it can change foods from their natural state, then there is a very high probability that it might cause the same or similar changes in the human body.organic foods are best but they are more expenssive.it is worth the sacrifice if one has to cut down some of the risks of getting cancer.

I absolutely loved all the videos. It has always been a passion to eat what the lord gave us. And very little man mad products. The videos show that eating the rainbow can have significant health benefits.
I love garlic and ginger, I have not tried turmeric mostly because i don’t know what to use it on. I already eat most of the things listed with the exceptions of an apple a day and berries. Will have to try and incorporate these in the diet.

cinnimon and fruits would be my favorite things listed to eat that helps prevent cancer and most of the vegetables that was listed I don’t like.

These videos were extremely informative. I have had two grandparents on both my mom and dads side that have passed away from cancer. I like and already eat a lot of the foods that were mentioned. I am going to continue to incorporate healthy things in my diet.

The first video- This was an over view of what I already knew but, I really liked the 3-D images showing how the cancer cell growns. I never really knew that the nucleus really determined if the cell lives or dies. Cancer cells can form to damage to genes, genetics, and other leading factors. The second video- It showed what foods we should eat to prevent cancer cells. Like berries, spices, green tea, and apples. I never knew that Japan has the lowest rate due to their green tea growth. Green Tea increases cancer fighting oxidants. The third video- shows what we should and shouldn’t eat to fight cancer. A good way to do that is to eat lots of fruits, vegtables, and fiber. Brocoili, genger, fish, and blackberries are all leading foods. I like the idea of a “Gut Friendly Diet.” I’m going to try some of these methods out.

I agree, it is ironic that pretty much everything we eat is either going to make us or break us. I have learned a lot about a few foods from the essay assignment. It is scary thinking about all the different diseases and what is going to work for our own body.

thats true,but it is the food choices we make that determines if they are harmful to our body or not.i believe if we spend money on healthy foods, then we will spend less on health.thats will be a lot of savings!

WHEN WE CHOOSE TO EAT PEOPLE DON`T REALIZE WHAT COULD BE HURTING THEM. YES I THINK IN THE LONG RUN YOUR SAVE MONEY IF YOU EAT HEALTHLY.

I knew that certain foods and preparation methods could contribute to the risk of cancer, but I did not know that there were foods that could help prevent cancer. Certain berries, watercress, spices and sources of isothiocyanate, like brocolli, are known preventitives.

Food (nutrition) is linked to everything! Good health Bad health. How and what you eat is a dirrect reflection, in my mind, of how healthy you are. Isn’t it wonderful to see that we can be our own healers through eating super foods.

All these videos were informative on how eating right is the best way to stay healthy and avoiding any kind of diseases such as, cancer. Watching theses videos i learned that there are so many different vitamins in so many different foods such as, broccoli,and nuts. Giving a list of what is good and not good for you is perfect for a person to get the right foods for a good and healthy meal.

I agree, eating right and natural is the key. I also know just saying do it solves nothing. Teach the proper foods to eat. Lists for this or that is a good learning tool.

We live in such a fast paced world that sometimes we don’t have time to even make the healthy choice as opposed to the most timely choice.

I agree these videos were very informational. I didnt realize that i already ate alot of the foods listed and had no idea that they could help prevent cancer. I have lost both of my parents to cancer and i try to do everything i can to prevent that from happening to me.

The first video was very interesting to me to see how the cancer cells grow. The second video was informative on what we can eat to help prevent cancer. I love broccoli and will be eating more of it, along with macadamia nuts, yummy. I like how the third video gave lists of what we should and shouldn’t eat although, I have learned that from the nutrition class itself.
