Eating Right for Cancer Prevention

healthy foods to fight cancerResearch shows that most cancer-related deaths are directly linked to the lifestyle choices of individuals, such as smoking, drinking, lacking of exercise, and even an unhealthy diet. Avoiding such habits and picking up good ones like exercising regularly and eating the right food can be a good start for an anti-cancer lifestyle. What you eat plays a huge role on its effects on your health, including the risk of cancer. Without knowing it, the food you are consuming right now may even be fueling cancer, while you neglect the powerful foods consisting of nutrients that shield you from the cancer. Changing your eating habits can minimize your risk of various types of diseases and possibly even stop cancer in its tracks. Here are some of the best foods proven to prevent cancer: Fruits (foods rich in Vitamin C) Vitamin C, an antioxidant found in most fruits and vegetables These fruits help prevent the formation of cancer-causing nitrogen compounds. Diets rich in Vitamin C are able to reduce the risks of cancers of the stomach, bladder, breast, and many more. Berries Unlike other fruits and vegetables, these tiny bundles of joy have been ranked among the best power-foods that prevent cancer. This is because of an antioxidant called pterostilbene, which is contained in berries in very high amounts, making them one of the strongest cancer preventing fruits around! Sweet potatoes (foods high in beta-carotene) Beta-carotene is another powerful antioxidant. Beta-carotene the compound that gives orange vegetables, such as carrots and sweet potatoes their characteristic color. It is also richly found in many leafy vegetables. Research shows that taking food high in beta-carotene among premenopausal women can reduce the risk of breast cancer by up to 50%. Cod liver oil (foods rich in Vitamin D) Deficiency of Vitamin D has been linked to colon and breast cancer. Scientists say that Vitamin D can stop the formation of blood vessels that lead to growing tumors. Because there are not many foods that provide Vitamin D, it would be wise if you pick up some supplements. Flaxseed (foods rich in Omega-3) Consumption of foods containing omega-3 fatty acids reduces the risk of cancer by preventing the rapid multiplication of cancer cells and inhibiting certain processes that result in the growth of tumors. They can also reduce inflammation, which leads to the reduction in cellular mutations. These are just some of the foods that can prevent cancer. There are a myriad of super foods out there such as cruciferous vegetables, foods rich in curcumin, and even drinks like tea or green tea that effectively help in reducing your risk of incurring cancer. Just find and consume the best ones you like for a longer and happier life!

Benefits of Human Hair Wigs

human hair wigsMany people have trouble deciding whether a synthetic wig will match the quality of a human hair wig. While synthetic wigs are relatively inexpensive, they do not measure up to the natural look and feel a human hair wig may provide you with. There are not many disadvantages regarding human hair wigs due to their high quality, you just have to expend more on one and take care of it like it’s your own hair i.e. wash it after every use.

The following are the advantages of using a human hair wig in contrast to synthetic wigs:

Human hair wigs are stronger and more durable

Synthetic wigs do not possess the same durability and strength as human hair wigs, making them last for a shorter period of time compared to human hair. Additionally, human hair is heavier and more voluminous, thus giving a more natural look and feel.

A human hair wig can look like real hair and you have more styling options with human hair than synthetic wigs

Apart from the fact that human hair feels heavier than synthetic hair, it looks more real and natural because it is made of real human hair. Additionally, human hair is more durable therefore you can make it go through the same styling options as you would with your real hair such as ironing, heating, blow during, curling etc., without making it look unnatural or fake.

Human hair wigs last longer than synthetic wigs

It is better to invest on a human hair wig than replacing your synthetic wig every time it wears off. Aside from being more real and natural, it will save you from burning holes through your wallet repeatedly. Human hair wigs last just as long as real hair, this can be about a few years on an average, in contrast to synthetic wigs that last for only 4 months maximum, depending on the daily styling, treatment, usage and length of hair.

Human hair wigs are heat resistant

One aspect of synthetic hair which most people worry about is the melting of the fibers of the hair due to heat treatment and styling. Human hair wigs are made of real hair and can withstand heat and friction the same as real hair does, therefore, you will have more styling options such as heat curling, ironing and blow drying without causing serious damage to the hair.

Wig origins

Most of the human hair wigs that are in the market these days are from Asian countries, usually from China. Asian countries like India and Pakistan provide better quality hair compared to other countries of Asia and like most Asian women’s hair, human hair wigs from Asian countries are often dark in color and are made to produce dark, straight wigs. In order to change the color of the hair, the hair has to go through several heating processes and dying, curling and bleaching, to match the style of what a buyer may require. However, such hairs often go through a lot of damage and often do not last longer than a few months. Therefore, for Asian hair, always choose darker colors or the original hair colors.

The best quality human air wigs are originated from European countries, particularly the Eastern European ones such as Russia and Poland. These wigs are more expensive compared to Asian hair due to the quality and longevity.

Why I Buy Wigs

beautiful hair wigI buy wigs and hair because I like to feel beautiful.  Who doesn’t want flowing locks of long full hair cascading down their back? Wigs mean the world to me because they are fun and I like to play dress up. I don’t know what I would do if wigs and hair extensions did not exist. I was not blessed with long hair so I buy it.

Wigs transform me instantly into someone new. I am a confident person yes, but more confident when I am wearing a wig.  I just need it to feel beautiful and wigs do it for me. Sorry if that sounds insecure to some but I just love to buy wigs online. They make me look good and feel good at the same time. So whats wrong with that? Absolutely nothing ladies and gents!

As much as I love wigs, I do not broadcast it to everyone on the street that I am wearing a wig or have had hair extensions put in.I just let them keep guessing. I am sure they know since my hair is long one month and short the next but who cares, I look great and feel great. That’ s all that matters.

Wigs on some level are a personal addiction of mine and that is why I personally prefer to buy wigs online. I get a rush every time the delivery driver shows up with my new wig package. I open the box, run upstairs to my bathroom and put it on. Then I do my makeup and put on an outfit and away I go. I swear I have been buying and wearing wigs for about ten years and I won’t stop ever. Wigs are not just for people who are losing their hair. I have my own hair, that I wear but I save my wigs for vacations, and dinners out and special occasions.

If you have never tried a wig, or a hairpiece or hair extensions, I encourage you to buy wigs online, order one that looks like it would suit you and check it out. And don’t worry. I have bought wigs that didn’t suit me at first, but the secret is to work with them. You have to cut it style it and brush it out a little until you get it just right. Some of the wigs, I have purchased have been an instant success, others have not been and those are the ones you play with and create a new style. I love wigs.

If you weren’t born with it, buy it. Whats the big deal? Wig smig. I love wigs plain and simple. I buy wigs. I wear wigs. There I said it. When I get my new wig, I get my quick dose of fabulous hair and voila, I am ready to take on the world!
