Internal Balance Demonstrates How Preventative Nutrition and Lifestyle Can Combat Cancer Growth

The team of professionals at Internal Balance in Franklin, Tennessee reports about a recent study published in the scientific journal Nature. This cancer study, says Internal Balance, shows that cancer needs many years to grow inside the body before it can be diagnosed by current medical technology. According to the study, says Internal Balance, a pancreatic cancer tumor that has metastasized to other parts of the body has already been growing in the pancreas for up to 20 years.

This is very valuable news, points out Internal Balance, especially when paired with pre-existing knowledge about the growth patterns of cancer. If cancer needs so much time to incubate in the body, deduces Internal Balance, then the proper growing conditions must have been necessary and present. According to Internal Balance, scientists know that the growing conditions for cancer include high sugar intake, low vitamin D levels and an alkaline diet with little physical activity. Alkaline diets, says Internal Balance, include acidic foods like caffeine, sugar and fried food.

Through nutrition and personal routine, Internal Balance reports that these conditions can be reversed, long before cancer has grown enough to be a threat. In fact, it is possible to create a biological environment in the body that inhibits and even prevents cancer growth. Like anything else that needs to eat in order to grow, notes Internal Balance, cancer can be starved.

Focus on a diet rich in plant-based nutrients, suggests the team at Internal Balance, coupled with regular exercise and lowered stress levels. Smart eating and healthy living, adds Internal Balance, can create an environment where tumors are discouraged from growing. Give up coffee for vegetable juice, recommends Internal Balance’s Tamara Mariea. You’ll get the same morning energy without injesting an acidic carcinogen like caffeine. Internal Balance says to instead feed the body more fruits, nuts, vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids. By consuming good food and getting plenty of exercise, concludes Internal Balance, a person can imbue their cells with anti-cancer nutrients.

Colts Neck Thanks Mario Romano for his Role in Making Pop Warner Football a Reality

Mario Romano Colts Neck

As cofounder of the Pop Warner Football organization in Colts Neck, New Jersey, Mario Romano knows the importance of the history behind its name. “It’s very important to have an idea of where we are coming from, so we know where we are headed here in Colts Neck,” Mario Romano explains. While the sports program Mario Romano started in Colts Neck was more about accessibility, Joe Tomlin created the original Pop Warner Football league in 1929 to prevent vandalism. Mario Romano Colts Neck describes how a factory in Northeast Philadelphia experienced 100 shattered windows. “Kids were breaking countless windows while they were playing outside,” explains Mario Romano Colts Neck, “so Joe Tomlin started what was called the Junior Football Conference in 1929.”

By 1939, the Conference had expanded from 4 to 16 teams. Just as Mario Romano’s Colts Neck league grew in a short amount of time, Tomlin’s league was rapidly expanding. “1939 was the year Glenn Scobie Warner was asked to speak at a Junior Football Conference banquet,” Mario Romano Colts Neck describes. Mario Romano of Colt’s Neck detailed the set of events that led to the league’s new name. “Joe Tomlin had arranged for about a dozen speakers to come to the banquet along with Glenn “Pop” Warner,” Mario Romano Colts Neck notes, “but with an unexpected burst of dangerously icy weather, Pop was the only one to show.” The rest, as Colts Neck’s Mario Romano says, is history.

Mario Romano tells his Colts Neck athletes about the way Pop Warner engaged the 800 excited young football players for nearly two hours. “I’ve told athletes from Colts Neck,” Mario Romano notes, “that, on that night, Pop Warner filled the void of 12 respected coaches – and then some!” Mario Romano of Colts Neck has had his share of experiences with public speaking, and notes that young athletes can be one of the toughest crowds. If he were alive today and in Colts Neck, Mario Romano would love to see how Pop Warner would handle the local athletes. “If Pop Warner can handle 800 young men at once,” Mario Romano suggests, “Colts Neck would be no problem for him.”

When it came time for Pop Warner to end his program with the youth in the Junior Football league, Mario Romano Colts Neck explains how a very peculiar thing happened. Immersing himself in youth sports around Colts Neck, Mario Romano feels the history behind the Pop Warner Football name. “That night, after Pop Warner finished,” Mario Romano Colts Neck describes, “the youth program was renamed the ‘Pop Warner Conference’ – right then and there!

Mario Romano Colts Neck began his career on Wall Street in 1982. Studying there under some of the most prestigious financial professionals of our time before moving to Colts Neck, Mario Romano graduated from St. John’s University well ahead of his class. Relocating to the Colts Neck area, Mario Romano continued serving as an executive with a select group of Wall Street institutions. From his base in Colts Neck, Mario Romano co-founded Wealth Engineering and Development in 2005. Currently residing in Colts Neck, Mario Romano brings over twenty-five years of Wall Street experience to his mission of providing financial education to the masses worldwide. Mario Romano Colts Neck lives with his wife Gina and their three children. Mario Romano is known in the community of Colts Neck as a key proponent of youth sports and education for the instrumental role he played in bringing Pop Warner Football to the area.

Franklin Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass Discusses Primary Teeth and Preventing Tooth Decay

Snodgrass-King Franklin Pediatric Dentist

Franklin pediatric dentist Dr. David Snodgrass knows well that what facilitates cavity growth in a young patient’s mouth are sugars, bacteria, a tooth and time. If a cavity is deprived of any one of these things, says the Franklin pediatric dentist, it doesn’t have a chance. This means that children need to establish healthy eating habits at a young age, points out the Franklin Pediatric dentist, learning how to prevent bacteria from forming into dangerous colonies.

Though this may sound complicated, Dr. Snodgrass and the staff at the Franklin pediatric dentist offices of Snodgrass-King assure parents that it all boils down to a few simple habits. A major objective of the Franklin pediatric dentist and his partners is to help teach children good and long lasting dental health habits, especially regular brushing and flossing. In most cases, says the Franklin-based pediatric dentist, the old adage that prevention is the best medicine still holds true. Regular checkups by Snodgrass-King’s Franklin pediatric dentists and staff will help to prevent unnecessary treatment.

Dr. Snodgrass says that parents should take children to their first dental visit after the first tooth emerges. Regular visits to the trusted Franklin pediatric dentist will go a long way toward instilling a positive attitude in a child about dentists. Children’s primary teeth must be treated with just as much care, explains the Franklin pediatric dentist, as their future adult teeth. Snodgrass-King’s Franklin-based pediatric dentist also explains that it is important for primary teeth to stay in good shape and fall out naturally. Indeed, primary teeth play a significant role in speech development as well as preparing and saving space for permanent teeth, according to the Franklin pediatric dentist. Helping to maintain a child’s healthy smile, adds the Franklin pediatric dentist, contributes to his or her self-esteem.

Research in the dental field, notes the Franklin pediatric dentist, is always working to develop better techniques for preventing oral disease and tooth decay. Dr. Snodgrass believes that giving young patients at his Franklin-based pediatric dentist office an early push to take good care of their teeth will lead to healthy lifetime habits. He notes that one of the pediatric dentists on staff at Snodgrass-King’s Franklin office has cited interesting information revealed by several pediatric dental studies. Children with poor oral hygiene, says the Franklin pediatric dentist, have been linked to diminished performance in school, weak social relationships and lower pay grades. In fact, the Franklin pediatric dentist says that a child feeling pain from tooth decay may become so distracted they can barely eat, let alone do schoolwork. It is true that good dental hygiene habits can be time-consuming, says Snodgrass-King’s Franklin pediatric dentist, but adopting good mouth care habits early in life will beneficially affect many other facets of a child’s personality.

Senior Healthcare Consultants Up Close and Personal: Team Squad Leader

In Finance on January 4, 2011 at 8:08 am

Senior Healthcare Consultants: What was your previous occupation prior to becoming part of the team at Senior Healthcare Consultants?

Staff Member: After college I worked for a company that was on the cutting edge in retail. They provided a very respectable work environment and they had great benefits. After 12 years I came to the realization that my pay had topped out. I was 34 years old and in a position where I hadn’t the possibility of earning any more money. That was when I knew it was time for a change, and found Senior Healthcare Consultants.

Senior Healthcare Consultants: Why did you choose a career with Senior Healthcare Consultants?

Staff Member: I chose a career with Senior Healthcare Consultants because of the preset appointment program. Although I was not sure if I wanted to be an “insurance salesman”, given the reputation that they have, I decided to do the interview with one of the Senior Healthcare Consultants recruiters located in Pennsylvania to at least find out exactly what Senior Healthcare Consultants was all about. I was very impressed when I learned about the money that I could make, but also that Senior Healthcare Consultants promotions are based on hard work, trainability, and production, rather than who you know. However, I was still unsure because I did not want to do anything that could possibly hurt the clients I would see. The Senior Healthcare Consultants recruiter then said something that impressed me the most. He said that we are not “salesmen,” rather we are educators and Senior Healthcare Consultants represents companies that have the best reputations in the industry. Right then, I knew I was going to be working for a company that had good business ethics. The main reason that I have stayed with Senior Healthcare Consultants was the opportunity to be on the ground floor of something very special, an opportunity that only comes once in a lifetime. The second reason is the renewal income that I will make this year and the “stacking effect” it will have on my income for the years to come! If I continue to work hard on my production, overrides, and renewal income, I will have earned a six-figure income this year. I have never made that type of income before coming to Senior Healthcare Consultants.

Senior Healthcare Consultants: How many years of sales experience did you have before joining Senior Healthcare Consultants?

Staff Member: I had no previous sales experience before Senior Healthcare Consultants.

Senior Healthcare Consultants: What was the most difficult part of your learning curve at Senior Healthcare Consultants?

Staff Member: Closing the sale. I felt like I was pressuring someone into something. However, I found through constantly absorbing a lot of coaching from others at Senior Healthcare Consultants that are successful and always following the “30K presentation” you learn in Senior Healthcare Consultants training, that it became very easy to close. The fact is, urgency is part of this business, as our clients need our help and they need it as fast as we can get it to them. If the Senior Healthcare Consultants presentation is followed correctly and exactly as trained and you thoroughly educate the client and repeat our benefits, the client almost jumps out of their chair to give you the check. Senior Healthcare Consultants never applies pressure, as the client makes their decision based off of our education, not our sales ability. The other great thing about Senior Healthcare Consultants is the constant coaching that you receive. It never stops. Everyone on staff at Senior Healthcare Consultants has a genuine interest in making you successful.

Senior Healthcare Consultants: Give a few pieces of advice to incoming members of the Senior Healthcare Consultants staff.

Staff Member: First, you have to be willing to work hard Tuesday through Friday 10-12 hours. Next, keep a positive mental attitude at all times. Never blame the preset appointment or the area. They haven’t changed, you have! Finally, have a long-term outlook– Senior Healthcare Consultants renewal income is great!!

Attorney John Black Reports on Class Action Suit Naming Pella Corporation

In Attorney on January 4, 2011 at 7:26 am

According to John Black, home and business owners may want to inspect their windows. Freed & Weiss has been leading the charge in a faulty product class action suit naming Pella Corporation and Pella Widows and Doors. When the intermediate federal appellate court upheld the lower court’s class certification, reports John Black, the decision covered the ProLine series, the 250 series and the 450 series of Pella windows. “If you have these kinds of windows,” comments John Black, “you may want to check for wood rot.”

John Black states that the class action suit alleges that the aluminum cladding around the window masks water damage causing wood rot. Some homeowners have had to replace their windows, according to John Black. Other homeowners who have the faulty windows, adds John Black, have wood rot and have not yet replaced the windows. “Then we are aware of other individuals who have neither wood rot nor have replaced the windows, but, unfortunately, may be in for a big shock once they realize the extent of the problem,” comments John Black.

John Black explains that two classes were certified by the district court and then upheld by the appellate court. The first class, points out John Black, is a national declaratory judgment that groups together those who have not experienced any wood rot from the alleged defect and those who have experienced rot but have not replaced their windows. The second consumer fraud class certified by the court, says John Black, consists of individuals who had wood rot and who have already been forced to replace the faulty windows. John Black states that this second class encompasses the states of California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and New York.

A “declaratory judgment,” explains John Black in reference to the first class, is issued by a court that identifies specific rights or privileges of parties involved. Declaratory judgments are considered final and binding, notes John Black, without specific orders on how the parties are to proceed. John Black said that the plaintiffs currently await a decision by the United States Supreme Court as to whether they will review the case, as Pella has requested.

While waiting, John Black said, Freed & Weiss continues its investigation concerning ProLine widows and other window complaints. John Black invites individuals who own Pella windows and are dealing with wood rot issues to directly contact Freed & Weiss toll free at (866) 779-9610. “It is critical that we know just how far reaching this problem extends,” states John Black. John Black says he believes that companies have a responsibility to uphold their promises to customers and not put defective products into the stream of commerce. If they do not, according to John Black, then consumers need to be aware and take action.
