why healthy diet is so important?

There is a lot of interest in how what you eat can affect your rosacea. Some foods can cause a flareup in rosacea symptoms. Also the makeup of your diet in general will affect your health for sure and also your rosacea.

why healthy diet is so important?

The most comprehensive study ever undertaken on the association between cancer and obesity concludes that excess body fat triggers many types of the disease, as does the consumption of even moderate amounts of alcohol, red meats and processed meats.
The study, released yesterday in Washington by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund, shows food, nutrition and lack of exercise appear critical in causing many cases - perhaps up to one-third - of all cancers. That means controllable lifestyle factors associated with diet and weight have about the same impact on cancer rates as smoking.
"The most striking finding in the report is that excess body fat increases risk for numerous cancers," said Phillip James, one of the study's authors and chairman of the British-based International Obesity Taskforce.
The international team of medical experts, which conducted an exhaustive, five-year review of more than 7,000 research papers that investigated whether food, nutrition or lack of physical exercise had an impact on cancer incidence, made 10 recommendations for preventing the disease. They include eating diets containing large quantities of vegetables and fruits and, most important, staying as thin as possible within the normal range of a person's body weight.
Ten recommendations
• Be as lean as possible within the normal range of body weight.
• Be physically active as part of everyday life.
• Limit consumption of energy-dense foods high in fat and sugar but low in fibre. Avoid sugary drinks.
• Eat mostly foods of plant origin.
• Limit intake of red meat and avoid processed meat.
• Limit alcoholic drinks.
• Limit consumption of salt.
• Aim to meet nutritional needs through diet alone.
• Mothers to breastfeed; children to be breastfed.
• Cancer survivors to follow the recommendations for cancer prevention.

"Cancer is preventable. If you able to find the cancer symptoms earlierThere are changes you can make in your daily life that will reduce your chances of developing cancer," Dr. James said. "Let's get more vegetables, fruits. ... Let's get off our backsides, however and whenever we can."
Among the cancers convincingly linked to excess body fat, particularly if it is carried around the waist, are colon, kidney, pancreas, uterine, adenocarcinoma of the esophagus, and postmenopausal breast cancer.
The new research also made some unusual findings about cancer. One is that there is convincing evidence linking being tall to a higher risk of colorectal and postmenopausal breast cancer. Another is that an association exists between high birth weight and increased risk for premenopausal breast cancer - probably due to body fat.
Although many medical researchers have presented studies before linking cancer to weight and diet, the new study makes the case even more convincingly because it draws together most of the available evidence on the subject. The AICR published a previous study on cancer and body mass 10 years ago, and, at the time, the evidence was only strong enough to link it to uterine cancer - indicating how much scientific research has uncovered in the last decade.

Hello, thanks for joining the group. Your post doesn't quite look like the sorts of posts that we normally get from those interested in rosacea. It feels a little bit to me like you are just after some traffic to your blog. How do you see diet being related rosacea - is it more direct or indirect ?

I feel a bit sad about that because I think the topic you have raised is actually quite interesting, and worth talking about from a health point of view.

p.s. feel free to followup with your thoughts, then I will know that you are genuine in your interest in this forum.

To make it short - people that suffer from Rosacea (which actually this is a side effect of a different condition) have a very sensitive intestines and colon. If we don't keep ourselves clean inside - it comes out from the skin.

Daniel Reid writes in his book The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity about digestion:

“...Anyone should be able to figure out what therefore happens when you ingest protein and starch together. Acid and alkaline juices are secreted simultaneously in response to the incoming protein and starch, promptly neutralizing one another and leaving a weak, watery solution in the stomach that digests neither protein nor starch properly. Instead, the proteins putrefy and the starches ferment owing to the constant presence of bacteria in the digestive tract.

This putrefaction and fermentation are the primary cause of all sorts of digestive distress, including gas, heartburn, cramps, bloating, constipation, foul stools, bleeding piles, colitis, and so forth. Many so-called “allergies” are also the direct result of improper food combinations: the bloodstream picks up toxins from the putrefied, fermented mess as it passes slowly through the intestines, and these toxins in turn cause rashes, hives, headaches, nausea and other symptoms commonly branded as “allergies”...

... The final fact of the matter is this: when you immobilize your stomach and impair digestive functions by consuming foods in indiscriminate combinations, the bacteria in your alimentary canal have a field day. They get all the nutrients and thrive, while you get all the wastes and suffer.
According to a recent survey in America, the average American male today carries about 5 pounds of undigested, putrefied red meat in his gut. Leave 5 pounds of meat in a dark, warm, moist place for a few days and see for yourself the results of putrefaction. The severely septic condition of the human intestinal tracts is unique in nature, yet Western physicians take it for granted and even insist that it is harmless to the rest of the system.

In fact, however, in order to protect itself from the chronic toxic irritation of improperly combined meals, the colon secretes large quantities of mucus to entrap toxic particles before they damage the colon’s sensitive lining. When this occurs at every meal, every day, every week, throughout the year – as is quite typical in modern Western diets – the colon ends up secreting a constant stream of mucus, which accumulates and gets impacted in the folds of the colon. This results in a narrowing of the passage through the colon and a constant seeping of toxins into the bloodstream by osmosis. When the impacting of toxic mucus in the colon reaches a critical pressure, it causes a pocket to balloon outward through the colon lining, causing a condition called diverticulitis. Colitis and cancer are the next stages of colon deterioration caused by these conditions.”

Also from this book:

“...These skin conditions are caused mainly by excessive putrefactive waste matter in the body’s excretory channels, and extreme acidosis of blood due to accumulation of toxic wastes; when wastes are retained and the colon is clogged, the body purges toxins through the skin and lungs, where these toxins cause abscesses, tumors, inflammation and eruptions. Also due specifically to poor metabolism of fats.”

So: This is a partial list of what I don't eat:
- No cow products in any form (meat, dairy or even byproducts hidden in cereals) - it is very hard to digest and it becomes putrid in our intestines.

- No hydrogenated fat!!!!!!!!!! This is the hardest because when I look at the labels in the store almost everything contains hydrogenated fat. (So no butter, no ice cream, no margarine, no mayonnaise, no readymade dressings, and of course - check the labels of cakes, cookies, bread and every single baked product in the planet!)

- No "diet foods" - they contain artificial additives - when there is a word I don't understand - it is probably manufactured.

-No fried food.

-No chocolate.

-Be very careful in restaurants (the only one I trust is Sweet Tomatoes)

-Spices - very limited - some kind of peppers are very harsh on my skin - No sugar (the sugars cause to the food to ferment in our intestines)

- No alcoholic drinks -I don’t expose my face to the sun.

Besides this - I eat everything else. As much fresh as possible. As much raw as possible.

As you see, apparently, what I was doing before I started this way of life wasn't helping me. The easiest is to think fresh - fresh foods.

Yes, a healthy diet is definitely the answer to Rosacea.
