Vitamin D

Starting off, Vitamin D is not a Vitamin, long time ago mis-namer. It’s actually a Pro-Hormone – a precursor building block to hormones and it’s unbelievably important. It acts as a molecular switch activating at least 200 target genes in our bodies, thereby regulating gene expression. And many of these are the ON switches for our immune system! I only wish I knew then, what I know now.

Justin & Audra have a son “SuperMax” with Glioblastoma. Their fierce love for their son and drive to make a change for everyone around them has created their MaxLove initiatives.  SuperMax is conquering Brain Cancer with their use of dietary and alternative treatments in addition to traditional treatment.  They have also created a place for parents of kids with all cancers a place to share and learn.  Please check out Fierce Foodies on Facebook.

targets that can potentially be used not only for the prevention of cancer but also for treatment.  This research report lists common molecular targets that cancer controls to our detriment.  Then it shows you what foods specifically can counteract those targets.
