Just a note about a recent newsletter, in which I called attention to the link between milk and cancer. The association is very real. Whereas it does not PROVE causation, it has to make anyone but a fool thinks carefully about the connection.
Now, almost by serendipity, a new study came across my desk only this week, AGAIN demonstrating a link between milk consumption and cancer—breast cancer in women…
For women who drink two to three cups of dairy milk per day, the study proclaimed the associated risk of developing breast cancer rose by more than 70%.
Drinking dairy milk may be a contributing factor in having an increased risk of developing breast cancer, according to a new study conducted by researchers at Loma Linda University Health.
Researchers published the controversial study this week in the Oxford International Journal Of Epidemiology. They looked at the dairy intake of 53,000 American women and found that higher intakes of dairy milk were associated with greater risks of developing breast cancer. The average age of participants in the study was 57 years old.
The national rate of breast cancer in the U.S. is 13 percent. It is believed that about one in eight women will contract cancer. The rate of breast cancer frequency in the study was lower than the national average.
The study was funded by the National Cancer Institute and the World Cancer Research Fund as a part of a health study exploring the links between lifestyle, diet, and disease.1
A previous study of men suggested dairy products might increase a male’s risk of developing prostate cancer by 30 to 50 percent.
So what’s a milk lover to do? If you like the flavor and texture of milk, there are many alternatives on the market, part from daily milk. Milks are made from coconuts, almonds, oats, flax, and more are readily available in stores and are very easy to make yourself. Often these milks provide even more nutrients than cow milk does too.
Don’t be fooled by the calcium story: milk weakens bones and removes calcium from bones, as I said last time.
Well, it’s not often I spend a big chunk of my newsletter crowing about something I already said. But I do feel at last that I am getting support from real science for what I’ve been saying for decades.
The Mrs. Muir Effect
Here’s where I’d like to ask some of you for real help with a project. Let me share with you a section for a new book I am writing: Overcoming The Fear Of Dying. I’m sure it’s a much-needed text. Death is still a taboo subject and still evokes fear or avoidance in typical Westerners.
Here Are My Preliminary Notes For This Section:
One thing I have seen countless times on the wards is the patient being beckoned over to the other side by a friendly spirit. Nurses know this, of course; they see it often but don’t mention it to the doctors… at least not the male doctors! But obviously there is a presence there. It’s a ghostly immaterial apparition that is calling the patient over at the moment of dying.
You witness the terminal patient making gestures, apparently talking to someone at the end of the bed, some spectre; someone who isn’t there. Sometimes there is a friendly smile of recognition as if the patient already knows this being.
And then, next thing, he or she is gone from us.
I suspect this happened with my Mum Florence (I told you this story in a newsletter at the time). She and her ex-husband, who died within a day of each other (their obituaries were only an inch apart in the local rag!), probably went through this ritual.
I wasn’t there. I’d flown home to Las Vegas. But the nurses say that Mum was fine when they went round to do her vitals at 2.00 am, laughing and joking, and yet when they came again, at 3.00 am, she had passed. I can imagine it easily, having seen it myself so often. The non-material presence appears and beckons… it might even have been her first husband, my own Dad, saying “Come on Flo, it’s time.” By then she would be halfway to the other side anyway, having left our world and was already peeping into the next.
I think she would have found it comforting to find someone she knew and trusted, to help her make that final, eventful step!
I call this the “Mrs. Muir Effect”, after a wonderful sweet movie called The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. It starred Gene Tierney, as Mrs. Muir, and Rex Harrison as the cantankerous ghost of Captain Daniel Gregg, who originally owned Gull Cottage, the house Mrs. Muir has bought for herself and her daughter.
There’s not a scary moment in the whole story; just love, courage and reverence. It turns out in the end that even the daughter (played by a young Natalie Wood) has seen the ghost of Captain Gregg and talked to him often, without the least fear.
What I am asking for is: do any of you have any true stories or anecdotes of this sort? I’d want to put them in the book and share, with or without your name. So do bear that in mind.
You would be doing good in the world, in helping poor souls who dread death to come to terms with the fact there is something out there!
Please do NOT send me Christian propaganda: I have subscribers all over the world, practicing many religions, who feel no need of being told what to think from any one particular tradition. They have their own way. We must respect that.
This is for ALL HUMANITY. I really feel a strong sense of mission in this work. I can take this way beyond Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s work On Death and Dying and beyond The Tibetan Book of The Dead.
As I said, there is a real need for some comforting truths, as religious values are steadily eroded in this competitive and mechanistic world. So-called science insists we are all just a brain, with the inference that when we die and the brain is gone, we are gone too.
I say nonsense. There is an enormous abundance of evidence to the contrary; that we are NOT just a brain. Near-death experiences, out of the body, infinite mind, remote viewing, telepathy, prescience, and many other phenomena demonstrate clearly that we are non-material souls and therefore do not (and cannot) UN-Be!
Please help! Blessings,
To Your Good Health,
