2 Foods to lower cancer risk and blood pressure

I just read these 2 tips in Mens Health and figured I'd pass them along...

1. According to Mens Health, in a Washington State University study, people who drank a daily shake with whey protein for 6 weeks lowered their blood pressure by about 8 points. Apparently whey protein may help to improve the function of blood vessel linings according to the study author.

Of course, you probably already know some of the other muscle building and fat loss benefits of a quality whey protein too. I use whey protein in all of my post workout smoothies, and lately I've also been adding vanilla whey to my yogurt/berry/nut mixtures for an extra protein boost.

FYI - my favorite whey protein that I've found is this grass-fed raw whey protein, which is one of the highest quality that I've been able to find.

Almost all whey proteins on the market are made from milk from factory farm cows that are crowded inside horrendous "milk factories" and fed mostly corn, both of which makes the cows sick. I've verified that the whey listed above is from truly grass-fed cows that spend their time outdoors eating grass, and not corn.

Also, on the topic of lowering blood pressure... over the past year, I've been trying to help my mom with some natural remedies to help lower her elevated blood pressure. In my searching, I purchased several different manuals and books about blood pressure...

However, the absolute best one that I read about six months ago was from a natural health author named Frank Mangano, and it's called The Blood Pressure Miracle.

This manual had TONS of great tips and several dozen really interesting natural remedies for lowering blood pressure without dangerous drugs. It was by far the best blood pressure manual that I've read.


2. The second study that I just read about in Mens Health shows how fish oil may help prevent pancreatic cancer.

The study was from the International Journal of Cancer, and found that participants who took at least 850 mg of omega-3's per day reduced the risk of developing pancreatic cancer by 53%.

Although this study only talked about pancreatic cancer, I think we already know how powerful the EPA and DHA types of omega-3's in fish oil can be for so many aspects of our health besides just cancer risk.

Warning:  I've been reading more and more studies recently about many types of fish oil on the market that have gone rancid in the processing of that fish oil, or contain other contaminants in the fish oil.

Make sure to read this page that shows problems with some fish oils on the market.

I'll be back soon with more Lean-Body Secrets.
