Nasopharyngeal Cancer

Nasopharyngeal cancer is where malignant cancer cells form in the tissues of the nasopharynx.

The nasopharynx is the upper part of the pharynx (throat) behind the nose. Nasopharyngeal cancer most commonly starts in the squamous cells that line the nasopharynx.

The 3 parts of the pharynx are the nasopharynx, oropharynx and hypopharynx.

Key point about nasopharyngeal cancer:

1. Nasopharyngeal cancer is a type of Head and Neck cancer.
2. Risk factor may include the following:
  • Being of Chinese or Asian ancestry.
  • More common in men, 30-50 years old.
  • Exposure to the Epstein-Barr virus, of which it has been associated with various cancers, including Nasopharyngeal and some Lymphomas.
  • Eating salt cured foods, also chemicals released from the steam when cooking salt cured foods may enter nasal cavity, increasing the risk of nasopharyngeal cancer.

Health Advice

Do you like grapefruit?

The interaction between grapefruit juice and some medications can cause negative effects, especially on kidney level, and sometimes it can be fatal. A woman that uses birth control pills and then suddenly drinks too much grapefruit juice can get pregnant because this juice makes the effects of the pills disappear.

Grapefruit juice is not indicated to drink while taking anti-depressing medication, antibiotics and medicine for cardio-vascular diseases. A person that takes anti-depressives and adds to that grapefruit in huge quantities can feel that he has all of a sudden too much or too little energy, depending on the pills taken.

Combining it with antibiotic can cause stomach sickness or can extend the illness you are taking medication for because the antibiotics will diminuate their effect. Heart drugs don’t work anymore, the blood pressure stays up and the heart beat irregularly. For those that love grapefruit juice, witch is more concentrated than the fruit itself, a recommendation would be to restrain from drinking it while they are taking medication.

Get to Know what is cancer

All over the world, cancer is known to be as one of the most deadly disease ever to have affected the human race. Most of the medical researchers all over the world, consider cancer to be a “metabolic disease”. Metabolic diseases are those diseases, which are known to affect the metabolism rate of the human body.

As already said, we know that cancer has been concluded as to be a “metabolic disease” and that conclusion has been drawn from the fact that, cancer as a disease affects the human cells in the body.
Cells are microscopic living units in the body, which together form all living organs in the body.

At any given time or state, the human body is made up of a billion cells, which together constitute the human organs. Cancer as a disease is considered to be a very deadly disease, just because of the fact that the disease affects the human cells. In cancer, abnormal and unusual cells crop up in the human body and they grow and spread in the human body at an alarming and fast rate.

Coral Calcium

Shigechiyo Izumi is world’s oldest living person according to the Guinness book of World Records. He is 115 years old and retired from work at the age of 105, despite which he enjoys a remarkable health and is very active physically. He is Japanese residing on the Sango Coral islands in and around Okinawa. His secret has been revealed by medical tests as consumption of coral calcium.

The Sango islands were formed from Sango Coral reefs which have a chemical composition similar to human bones. During rain, the rain water naturally percolates through these reefs and accumulates various minerals and elements. The water becomes rich in essential vitamins and has a pH value between 7 and 8.5, indicating high alkalinity. This water contains a high level of coral calcium.

Shigechiyo Izumi

Sango coral is the only one of its kind to have these unique qualities (health benefits to human beings) out of about 2500 species of corals. It occurs in abundance only around Okinawa, Japan. Today, over 4 million Japanese are in the habit of consuming coral calcium capsules daily, as a result of the efforts of the Japanese government. The Japanese government authorized mining of Sango Coral sand for coral calcium about 10 years ago. This operation is very carefully monitored so that no living coral is damaged, and extracts, pulverizes and treats the Sango Coral sand rich in calcium, magnesium and trace minerals to produce coral calcium. The result is packed into capsules, which when consumed raise the pH level of the body to a healthy alkalinity.

The other cultures around the world who enjoy longevity are Titicacas of Peru, Azerbaijans, Armenians, Hunzas of Pakistan and Tibetans. They attribute this to drinking “Milk of the Mountains” – the molten glacier water which contains crushed rocks in the glacial ice, is turbid and white like milk. The scientific inference from these is that consumption of Calcium whether coral calcium or in other forms is beneficial in prolonging human life.
Coral calcium is full of trace minerals, the major ones being calcium and magnesium. Humankind has been depleted of micronutrient elements essential for proper functioning of body cells. The soil polluted by industrialization does not have enough minerals to keep the human body going. These have to be present in the soil first to be absorbed into fruits, vegetables and other edible natural food. In contrast coral Calcium consists of 74 trace minerals that are naturally ionized which results in better absorption by the human body. Strangely, but truly there have never been doctors in Okinawa, Japan, owing to coral calcium, proving the effectiveness of coral calcium in keeping the human body healthy and fit, apart from longevity. Over 200 diseases are linked to mineral deficiency including diabetes, cancer, heart disease, gall bladder and kidney stones and arthritis. Coral calcium, by providing essential minerals helps in keeping the pH balance in human body.
pH in normal terms means potential hydrogen. It is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration in a fluid. pH is measured on a scale of 14, 7 being the midway or neutral. A pH value below 7 indicates acidic and above 7 indicates alkaline. When a fluid is acidic, it is oxygen deprived. A human body is said to be non diseased only when the pH value of bodily fluid is alkaline measuring between 7 and 8 on the pH scale. The normal pH value of blood is between 7.35 and 7.45. If it drops below 6.8 or rises above 7.8, life becomes non existent.

Coral calcium increases the oxygen level in the body enabling to dump the toxic waste that keeps accumulating. Drinking oxygen rich spring or mineral water having high pH level combined with coral calcium and other minerals arms the human body with disease fighting ability, naturally.
