In Tuesday's CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER there was an article about building up your immune system to fight off colds by getting 8 hours of sleep a night. Does anyone do this? Read Get Your Sleep To Help Fight Off Colds that I posted earlier this week.
Breast Cancer Fighting FoodsAt Get Moving with mountain Woman and Tahtimbo, I found this list of Cancer fighting foods that were listed in Shape Magazine that Mountain Woman shared: Artichokes, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Pomegranates, (Pomegranates have been shown in clinical trials to halt the spread and recurrence of cancer), Swiss Chard (use instead of spinach), Bok Choy, Tomatoes and Purple Grapes.
One thing mentioned was if we all ate our daily dose of 5 to 9 servings a day of fruit and veggies, there would be 200,000 fewer cancer deaths a year!

The good news is that I do not need Chemo and will start my radiation treatments on Tuesday, October 6.
