And Alzheimer’s disease, now the sixth leading cause of death, currently affects over 5 million Americans – a number that the Alzheimer’s Association predicts will skyrocket as the population ages, potentially tripling by the year 2050.
While these statistics are bleak (conventionally speaking), we are not helpless in the face of these two dreadful health conditions. In fact, scientific research supports the ability of a plant-based diet to help alleviate and even prevent both cancer cell growth and brain damage.

(NaturalHealth365) We often hear that ‘cancer kills’ – but so does stress! While most of us know that cancer is one of the leading killers in the United States, few of us fully realize that chronic stress is strongly linked to millions of deaths, as well.
The prevailing theory is that (chronic – unwanted) stress triggers chronic inflammation in the body. This can damage cells and tissues and ultimately lead to widespread damaging effects and health consequences, including cancer. Now, new research points to some promising data.
