Judge spares cancer curing cannabis grower.

Judge suspends sentence for Australian man who grew cannabis to cure cancer.

After losing 3 loved ones who underwent radiation chemotherapy, A man in Australia decided to try using cannabinoids to heal his mother's cancer.

According the the judge in the case, Dooley, is a well respected member of his community and has no prior convictions on his record.  Justice Peter Barr acknowledged that Dooley sincerely believed that treating himself and his mother with cannabinoids would be beneficial to their health, noting that this case was a "most unusual one."  

Dooley explained that, after having lost his grandmother, wife, and close friend who were undergoing traditional cancer treatments including radiation and chemotherapy, he was convinced that those methods of fighting cancer actually killed them rather than helped.  Dooley proceeded to grow 81 plants to use for treatment and claimed that his mother's cancer was cured using cannabis.  The judge suspended Dooley's 6 month jail sentence, also claiming that Dooley was not a recreational user and was growing the plants specifically for medicinal use.

Do you wonder why anyone would want to use cannabis to treat cancer?

Lower cholesterol naturally

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in several countries around the world.  Take the preventative rout by including some food in your diet that will help you manage your good and bad cholesterol.

Here are some natural choices for help with maintaining healthy cholesterol levels:

-Soluble fiber:  Consuming ten grams of soluble fiber daily can lower harmful, or LDL, cholesterol by around 5%.  Broccoli, sweet potatoes, apples, carrots, and oats are all good sources of soluble fiber which helps slow the abosorption of cholesterol in the intestines.

-Green tea:  A Brazillian study on green tea conducted by giving participants extract from green tea in capsules concluded that LDL cholesterol levels dropped approximately 4.5%. 

-Artichoke leaf extract:  This extract could help increase the flow of cholesterol secretion from the liver, and may limit cholesterol synthesis in the body.

-Nuts:  Many nuts contain healthy fats which help to lower levels of LDL cholesterol in the body.

-Niacin:  Niacin is not without side effects and should be taken carefully with doctor supervision but could lower harmful or LDL cholesterol by as much as 10% and raise healthy or HDL cholesterol levels by between 15% and 30%.

-Red yeast rice:  Red yeast rice contains natural compounds called monacolins which are converted to a chemical that inhibits the production of cholesterol in the body.  Consuming red yeast rice as part of an overall diet can help to maintain normal cholesterol levels.

Metabolism:  Mushrooms are packed with B vitamins which are known to help make available energy from the food you eat.  They also metabolize fats and protein.
