The Whole package-Synergistic effects

This below is an Abstract from Article that shows that healing and protecting properties of the carotenoids from tomatoes working in the best way when those  are in the combination, as God created them!

“For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD Isaiah 66.2

Synergistic effects

Lycopene is the major carotenoid in tomatoes. Tomatoes contain a matrix of many bioactive components, including vitamin C, vitamin E, other carotenoids (a-, β-, γ- carotene, lutein), and flavonoids. Their synergistic interactions, when used in combination, may be responsible for the observed beneficial effects of tomato-based products. This study investigated the synergistic antioxidant activity of lycopene in combination with β-carotene, vitamin E, and lutein. A liposome system was used to test the synergistic antioxidant activity. The carotenoid mixtures were more efficient in protecting liposome from oxidation than the individual carotenoid .Research Article

Help request Montebrollo Salute, Italy

Dear friends,

A while has gone since my last newsletter in 2015, so I am pleased to update you about Montebrollo’s activities here in Bologna (Italy). The vegan cooking courses have continued to take place during this year 2016, with the presence of a very good vegan cook of Bologna. In one way it is more practical to have Davide live in the same city, on the other hand he is not an Adventist, so we miss the personal testimonies of Concetta and Leila while leading out their courses. My plan is to have them join us again in autumn 2016. And of course keep a friendship with Davide that can lead him to think that Christians aren’t after all so bad! (so many people here in Italy have a distorted idea of God and church due to the negative influence of a certain church in the history of this country).

After the cooking-class, we usually have a lunch together in the big living-room and a walk in the beautiful paths around the house. The hills nearby remind us a little bit of Tuscany, which is not so far away from us.

A small group of participants are coming now regularly to the courses and a friendship has developed from these events. The words of Giulia, the daughter of a couple that loves to come and herself participates, has especially touched me: “Thank you Alessia for these moments of peace and fellowship in your house. A long time has passed since I have seen my parents in such a good mood and harmony among themselves!”. The couple, that I know personally since the father is a MS patient of mine, has experienced a negative atmosphere in their relationship, due also to his invalidating illness.

Such are the rewards for me, small but significant: to make a difference in the life of others by sharing a place that many say brings a deep peace within, that they say to experience very rarely. Indeed the soothing sounds and atmosphere of nature around the property mean a lot.

These and other experiences have convinced me about the need to move to the country-house myself. So, the need for a person/couple that would help with running the B&B and the health courses is now more than ever urgent. They would help with cleaning and preparing breakfast, and with running the orchard and garden around the house. In exchange they would be offered lodging in the house, like an au-pair exchange. They would need a car, and some economic independence. I am thinking about some students that have ended a medical missionary school, a retired couple that wants to support a missionary oriented health project, or a single lady with a vision and experience. As the B&B activity will increase, the work will too and it will be possible to pay a salary.

My request to you is to please pray for this small project and spread this particular request with friends and church members. If you have any questions, suggestion or idea please feel free to write me back, as it is always nice to read news from you and keep in contact. You are also welcome to visit! Thank you for your support and friendship, God bless you always,

Open Vacancy: Bed & Breakfast, Bologna

Welcome to Montebrollo Salute, Bologna

We run a country-house on the hills of Bologna where we host since 2014 regular vegan cooking classes and health programs for the general public: friends and patients of the physiotherapy clinic that Alessia Venturoli runs downtown.

The idea is to start this year 2016 with a christian bed and breakfast, so to share our christian view of life through friendship and literature and healthy breakfasts every morning.

For this project we offer a working place as helper in the running of the bed and breakfast.

For more info see our Newstart Map.

Can we eat to starve cancer?

How can we conquer one of the most tragic conditions ?

William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor. The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game. Witness William Li’s interesting talk at TED (c).

WHO stuft verarbeitetes Fleisch als krebserregend ein

processedMeat1

Wahnsinn, jetzt ist es offiziell so. Die WHO stuft – basierend auf 800 Studien – verarbeitetes Fleisch als krebserregend ein: https://www.tagesschau.de/inland/who-fleisch-krebs-101.html

“Das Risiko steigt demnach umso stärker, je mehr Fleisch ein Mensch isst. “Jede verzehrte Portion verarbeiteten Fleischs von täglich 50 Gramm erhöht das Darmkrebsrisiko um 18 Prozent”, hieß es in der IARC-Studie. Eine Arbeitsgruppe aus 22 Experten hatte mehr als 800 Studien über die Folgen des Fleischkonsums ausgewertet. (…) Es gebe “starke Anzeichen” für einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem Konsum von rotem Fleisch und dem Risiko, an Darm-, Bauchspeicheldrüsen- und Prostatakrebs zu erkranken.”

Reasons why we should avoid milk and dairy products

“Many people, including vegetarians, consume substantial amount of diary products depite scientific evidence that questions about their health benefits and indicates their potential health risks. Milk and dairy products are not necessary in the diet and can, in fact, be harmful to health. It is best to consume a healthful diet of grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and fortified foods including cereals and juices. These nutrient-dense foods can help you meet your calcium, potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin D requirements with ease—and without facing the health risks associated with dairy product consumption.”

Here are some reasons why we should avoid milk and dairy products.

  • little benefit for bones
  • fat content can cause cardiovascular problems
  • riskfactor of various cancers
  • lactose intolerance
  • milk proteins and diabetes
  • harmful containments
  • health concerns for children, infants and their developement

The Okinawa Diet: Living to 100

What would happen if you centered your diet around vegetables, the most nutrient-dense food group?

“The plant-based nature of the diet may trump the caloric restriction, though, since the one population that lives even longer than the Okinawa Japanese don’t just eat a 98% meat-free diet, they eat 100% meat-free. The Adventist vegetarians in California, with perhaps the highest life expectancy of any formally described population.”
