Breast thermography is a non-invasive, non-radioactive, and painless procedure for detecting breast cancer. An estimated 1 in 12 women have breast cancer, according to statistics gathered by the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Early detection is critical when it comes to identifying, treating, and surviving breast cancer. This January and February, Assure A Smile invites Miami residents to schedule a breast thermography appointment to remain proactive in the fight against this pervasive disease.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin—meaning that our bodies do not store it so we need to obtain it from food or supplements. It is an antioxidant, which blocks damage caused by free radicals. Too many free radicals may contribute to the aging process as well as the development of cancer, heart disease and arthritis. We need Vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissue, and it helps the body produce collagen—an important protein that is used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, vertebral discs, joint linings and capillary walls. It is also needed for healing wounds and repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
This April marks the 13th annual Oral Cancer Awareness Month, a time for patients and dental professionals to promote awareness for oral cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. It is important to note that oral cancer cases are on the rise and individuals must take proactive steps to prevent the formation of this serious condition. The Oral Cancer Foundation urges Americans to take part in this initiative by learning more about oral cancer, who it affects, and how a screening from your local dentist may be an invaluable method of early detection and treatment.
Whole grapes have been a dietary staple among the cultures of central Europe, Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East for thousands of years. It was not until the 1970s, however, that the true health benefits of the grape would be realized. In 1970, the American Cancer Society became the first organization to successfully extract Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin Complexes (OPCs) from the seed of the fruit. Following the discovery of OPCs, Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has become one of the best-researched sources of antioxidants, vitamin E, and flavonoids that drive holistic health and wellness.
