In honor of National Cancer Prevention Month in February, stress and cancer expert Dr. Pete Sulack released a list of things one can do to reduce the risk of getting cancer.
Sulack, founder of one of the fastest growing chiropractic clinics in the nation, has studied extensively the connection between stress and cancer.
"You can't possibly avoid every single cancer causing substance, and you can't avoid stress — it is a fact of life. What you can do, however, is counterbalance stress with daily choices that at least give you a fighting chance," said Sulack in a statement to The Christian Post. "You can adopt practices that make your body more resilient in the face of cancer. It doesn't really matter whether you are genetically predisposed to contracting a certain kind of cancer. What matters is the genetic expression that comes from your daily choices, behaviors, and habits. It has been said that genetics loads the gun, but daily choices pull the trigger." more >>
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has admitted that the Episcopal Church's suspension in January by the Anglican Communion for supporting gay marriage is fair, but said that it will not change their stance on the issue.
"We're not changing — so there shouldn't be an expectation that in the next three years the Episcopal Church is going to change," Curry said at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. earlier this week, according to an article on the Institute on Religion & Democracy blog Juicy Ecumenism.
"This is who we are," Curry added. more >>
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — At Movieguide's 24th annual Faith & Values Awards Gala, Dolly Parton was awarded the Epiphany Prize for the Most Inspiring TV Program of 2015 for her NBC TV movie "Coat of Many Colors," a story about her upbringing in rural Tennessee around the time she was 9 years old.

Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson opened up in an interview about the prayer that led him to run for president.
Carson was asked in an interview with The Church Boys podcast to explain the divine calling that, he claims, inspired his presidential run. God gave him a "clear message" that running for president was the right move, he said.
"It was easy for me, because all the pundits, all the political experts said, 'Absolutely impossible — a political novice to run for president? There's no way you can out together an organization, there's no way you can pay for it. It's impossible,' which comforted me," Carson said in his answer. more >>
The Institute on Religion & Democracy has called on evangelicals, Catholics, and all Christians to stand together against proposals, backed by a number of Republican presidential candidates, to draft women into combat roles should the need arise.
"Christian leaders should oppose conscripting women into the military. Not only evangelicals, but also Catholics and Christian pacifists should speak out. Can the Church be silent about the potentially coercive militarization of America's daughters?" asked IRD's Evangelical Action Director Chelsen Vicari.
"Women are serving and have been serving their country alongside men. We support and thank them for their sacrifices. Women have important roles to fill in the military, but women also play vital roles in the home. Forcing mothers, daughters, and our sisters to register for Selective Service would be a tragic mistake," she added. more >>
President Barack Obama claimed in a wide-ranging interview that he has met most hopes and expectations people had of his presidency, and also singled out Pope Francis' visit to the White House as a stand-out moment.
"I've done a lot of them and I've made progress on almost all of them," Obama told "CBS This Morning" about voters' expectations in an interview that was posted on Tuesday.
"I feel pretty good about being able to match up what I said I would accomplish with what has been accomplished. I mentioned in the State of the Union that one of the things I regret though is that I haven't been able to drain some of the rancor that exists here in Washington," he continued. more >>
