I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Ways to remove pesticides from apples

A study by Yang et al, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, measured the effectiveness of commercial and homemade washing agents in removing surface and internalized pesticide residue from apples.

Surface pesticide residues were most effectively removed by baking soda solution (1 tsp baking soda per 2 cups water).  However, the apples had to be washed for 12-15 minutes to completely remove the pesticide.  Also, this process did not remove the pesticides that had penetrated into the apple itself.  Only peeling can achieve this, but then beneficial bioactive components in the peel are also removed.  See here for an article about this study.
