Female night shift workers have a higher risk of developing breast cancer than the rest of the female population. An interesting study in the December 1, 2005 issue of Cancer Research provides new information that might partly explain why this is.
Researchers found that sleeping for several hours in nighttime darkness promotes a healthy blood level of a hormone called melatonin, which can significantly suppress the growth and proliferation of breast tumours.
They also found that sleeping while exposed to light at night causes a dramatic drop in blood melatonin levels, setting the stage for growth and proliferation of breast cancer cells.
This study provides evidence that may partly explain why breast cancer is five times more common in industrialized nations compared to less developed countries. It may also explain why visually challenged people have lower rates of cancer than people who have no problems with vision.
Here are the essential details from this study:
* Researchers measured tumour growth and melatonin blood levels in rats that had malignant liver cancer or human breast cancer cells that were grafted into the rats
* Tumour growth and melatonin blood levels were measured in response to introduction of blood from healthy, premenopausal female volunteers whose blood was taken:
1. During daytime
2. During nighttime
3. During nighttime following 90 minutes of exposure to white fluorescent light to their eyes
* Tumours that were introduced to blood that was low in melatonin (samples taken during daytime and during nighttime following 90 minutes of light exposure) showed high proliferative activity
* Tumours that were introduced to blood that was high in melatonin (samples taken during nighttime darkness) showed a significant suppression in proliferative activity
This brilliant study highlights the importance of getting restful sleep at night with minimal exposure to light. Doing so is esssential to promoting a healthy circadian cycle, which is needed to produce an optimal amount of melatonin, as well as other hormones that are beneficial to health such as growth hormone, testosterone, and erythropoietin.
Of course, getting restful night time sleep in darkness and having a high blood level of melatonin are not the only factors that influence your overall health status and risk for developing cancer. A clean diet, peace of mind, appropriate amounts of physical acitivty, and an unpolluted environment are also essential requirements for your best health.
If you know any people who sleep with the light on, especially children, please pass this article along to them or their parents.

Originally from South America, cayenne is now used world wide, both as a culinary spice and medicinally.
For centuries Capsicum annuum, (cayenne pepper), and other medicinal herbs containing capsaicin, have been used to treat problems stemming from the gastrointestinal tract and stomach. It has often been used to improve circulation; reduce pain, itching, headaches; and to lower blood cholesterol.
Cayenne can be used in several ways. It can be used as a topical creme, tincture for pain spots, gargle for sore throat, tablet and capsule for internal issues. When using cremes and tinctures take care to protect your eyes, mouth, cuts and other sensitive areas. Consuming too much cayenne can have an adverse effect on the stomach.
Cayenne is also used in aiding with body detoxification with a diet known as The Master Cleanse. The Master Cleanse is an intensive detox that can bring big changes to your life. It may be worth looking into. If you have any of the above symptoms, check with your herbalist and try including cayenne in your diet. Give it a try. Spice up your life!

Have you ever exhaled on a mirror and noticed the temporary fog you created. The moisture is the result of the millions of tiny droplets of water that are carried out of our lungs in every breath.
Air is actually a form or water as water makes up its content. Today there exists, water extraction machines that pull water from the air. As water becomes scarcer, the use of these water collection machines will be more common.
With regard to the body, every breath dehydrates us a little more. During sleep we might as well be running a marathon as we dry out immensely. This is why after a night’s sleep we awake and pasty. You have been dehydrating breath by breath all night! We truly might as well have been running a marathon.
Sometime in the past someone said, “The AVERAGE person exhales anywhere from 48 to 64 ounces of water a day (about 1 to 1 1/3rd liters) just breathing.” That statement is almost wholly inaccurate.
The amount of water we will need and therefore exhale a day is dependent on 4 factors:
Diet: A poor diet / life full of white sugar, salt, sodium (used as a food additive), caffeine, alcohol & tobacco will constantly be dry. Trying to gauge how much water a person abusing themselves with the gunk above will need is a complete shot in the dark
Activity: The more active we are physically, the more water we will need. Activity means water lost (indoors or out). If we are busy talking all day, we lose more water. Chasing kids or in some other form of constant motion uses more water.
Environment: If we do the same job in an environment that is cool & moist, like Portland, Oregon, compared to a dry hot environment like Las Vegas, Nevada, we will need more water in Las Vegas. Environment is crucial to appreciate when factoring how much water we need.
Stress: One stressed by actual emotional stress or who is in constant concentration mode, like an accountant, will need more water as their liver is working harder. Stress releases hormones that must be dealt with by the liver (the washing machine of the body).
There is a patently false “old wives tale” known by many that for every cup of coffee, you need 3 cups of water. Hog wash! Consider this; the human body for all intents and purposes is a machine of unfathomable complication. It does have proclivities and slight variations, yet, does react to toxins and reject them.
Caffeine is a toxin that we know is harmful to the body. It shuts down the kidneys for hours just like a computer virus shuts down your computer. As for how much water it takes to flush out X amount of caffeine, that is completely unknown. The best rule of thumb via caffeine is to avoid it like the plague.
Using caffeine and then trying to repair the damage via water use, is like playing Russian Roulette with a doctor standing nearby who will try to put you back together if you blow out your brains. It is a bad game to play.
Most of us know little about how much water they need. There are obvious symptoms of thirst such as:
Smacking of the lips
The above list also means one is toxic. Toxic!!!? Yes, as lack of water causes stagnation in the body. In a stagnant environment we get worse and worse.
Therefore, if you follow your symptoms and drink water when you are thirsty and don’t drink it and even drink a little when you are not thirsty, you will be far better off.
If you are so inclined, experiment and try drinking 200 ounces of water in a day (or more) and see what happens. I’ve done it.
Remember, water is the life blood or oil of the body. The body will not run without it. Eliminate what is causing you to lose fluid (water) and you will feel the difference. All of this is covered in my two books in depth.

Cinnamon – When I was younger I never knew I was treating my self with herbs that would be beneficial to me: Toasted bread, butter, sugar, and CINNAMON.
Cinnamon or Cinnamomum is a great herb to have handy in the kitchen or café. Cinnamon is an Herbal Carminative (eases the discomforts caused by flatulence). Cinnamon and other herbal carminatives such as garlic, dill eucalyptus, peppermint, and many others contain volatile oils. These herbals work on the gut and are helpful with the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, reproductive system, musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and skin.
Some of the Herbal Carminatives include:
Garlic, dill, angelica, celery seed, wormwood, caraway, cinnamon, cardamom, eucalyptus, fennel, wintergreen, hops, juniper, motherwort, lemon balm, chamomile, peppermint, parley, aniseed, sage, pennyroyal, thyme, valerian, and ginger.
