Darker, multicolored skin lesions, especially with borders that vary and look like they are consuming the skin near it should be evaluated. Another thing I look for is activity. Has it changed or does it flake?
There is a pathway in the liver collectively called the P450 enzymes. This pathway gets disrupted from sun (radiation) damage. It is fed (helped) by… You guessed it… vegetables and berries. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in berries and veggies facilitate the proper functioning of these enzymes, thus reducing the potential for skin or many other types of cancer. Supplementally, the best nutrients for these enzymes are S.O.D. (superoxide dismutase) which is called a free radical scavenger. As a free radical scavenger it is very effective in minimizing the “side effects” of treatments like chemo and radiation as well as damage from over exposure to sun. The sun is not as much an issue as our poor nutritional ability to deal with its effects. Take the opportunity to keep an eye on your spouses skin and Eat your organic fruits and veggies.
The Dr. V summary of this ground breaking paper is:
When one eats too many processed, low soluble fiber foods they create an intestinal environment that is conducive to storing belly (visceral) fat. When one consumes appropriate vegetable fiber it promotes a healthier intestinal environment that stimulates metabolism and virtually melts away belly fat. Clinically I have long understood that fat storage in the lower abdominal area is a consequence of poor intestinal function. This paper confirms what we have known clinically for many years. The now confirmed conclusion is, if you want to loose belly fat eat fewer processed carbohydrates and more vegetables. Vegetables also help one feel satisfied longer from the food that is consumed, as opposed to the desire for further empty calories soon after the consumption of said empty calories. Eat vegetables to be lean and satisfied.
