But you can now investigate, study, research and locate alternative solutions online using the internet. A friend of mine sent me this link yesterday; http://www.cancertutor.com/ A fantastic site with loads of information. They talk about the corrupt system. The FDA, the AMA, Pharma, the media, etc... all in the business for making money and not for curing cancer. But most importantly they speak about ways in curing cancer naturally. The site is packed with information about all kinds of natural cures for diseases. A fantastic site that has many links as well.
Today my recipe includes Azuki beans or aduki or adzuki which ever you prefer. These beans are heavily consumed in Asia and date back to 4000BC, Say What? They are used in a lot of sweets and desserts. But I am using them for a Mexican Adzuki Bean Burrito with Avocado and Pineapple.
Why it's good for you!
Adzuki Beans Adzuki beans are a good source of magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc copper, manganese and B vitamins. As a high-potassium, low-sodium food they can help reduce blood pressure and act as a natural diuretic. They are low in calories but high in nutrients. When combined with grains, beans supply high quality protein, which provides a healthy alternative to meat or other animal protein.
Like most beans, adzuki beans are rich in soluble fibre. This type of fibre provides bulk to the stool and binds to toxins and cholesterol aiding in their elimination from the body. In Japan adzuki beans are known for their healing properties and are used to support kidney and bladder function.
Avocado Avocados are loaded with monounsaturated fats. They also have a high fiber content as well. They are rich in Vitamins B, E and K and have a large amount of potassium. The avocado is under research for its potential anticancer properties.
Pineapple Mainly from its stem, pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme, bromelain, which breaks down protein. It also contains the B vitamins and vitamin C plus manganese.
