As Addictive as Granola, But Healthier: Fruit and Nut Whole Grain Cereal

Commercially available granola is not as healthy as everyone thinks it is. All too often it contains an alarming amount of oil, sugar and salt....and please, forget about granola bars, they are even worse. Pictured is Om multi grain hot cereal with almonds, pecans, pumpkin, flax and poppy seed, Medjool dates, Mission figs, fresh apples and raspberries....needs no sweetener and milk of any kind is not necessary.

Delish with Om fruit butters such as Pumpkin or Pear Butter

William Li: Can we eat to starve cancer?

Ted Talks
 William Li, eating to starve cancer

Why you should listen to him:

Many of society’s most devastating diseases -- cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, to name a few -- share a common denominator: faulty angiogenesis, the body’s growth of new capillary blood vessels. Given excessive or insufficient blood vessel growth, serious health issues arise. While researching under Harvard surgeon Judah Folkman, who pioneered the study of angiogenesis, Li learned how angiogenesis-based medicine helps patients overcome numerous diseases by restoring the balance of blood-vessel growth.

Li co-founded the Angiogenesis Foundation in 1994. The foundation’s Project ENABLE -- a global system that integrates patients, medical experts and healthcare professionals -- democratizes the spread and implementation of knowledge about angiogenesis-based medicines, diet and lifestyle. Some 40,000 physicians have been educated on new treatments, ranging from cancer care to wound care, by the foundation’s faculty of medical experts, and they are bringing new, lifesaving and disease-preventing techniques to people around the world.
"Imagine that one medical advancement held the promise to conquer cancer, perhaps within your lifetime … the potential to also end more than 70 of life's most threatening conditions, affecting one billion people worldwide. This is the promise of angiogenesis, the first medical revolution of the 21st century."
