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 >>

Canada's Christian leaders and medical practitioners have expressed concerns to lawmakers over a proposed law on physician-assisted death, which, they say, would force them to perform legalized euthanasia.
Cardinal Thomas Collins, the archbishop of Toronto, and Larry Worthen, the executive director of the Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada, testified before a parliamentary committee last week, as the federal government has until June 6 to pass a new law on euthanasia, according to The Huffington Post.
Last year, the Supreme Court of Canada lifted the ban on physician-assisted death, giving the government one year to draft the law. In January, the court gave the government a four-month extension while also instituting interim guidelines for people seeking an assisted death, which took effect Saturday. more >>
Joni Eareckson Tada, an evangelical Christian author and international advocate for people with disabilities, on Friday endorsed Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, praising his commitment to "a compassionate social conservatism."
"American society, as with any nation, is judged on how it treats its weakest members, including the elderly, people with disabilities, and the unborn. It is why I personally support Senator Marco Rubio," Tada, founder of the global ministry Joni and Friends, said in a statement, World magazine reports.
"On all issues relating to sanctity of life, Senator Rubio is solidly committed to a compassionate social conservatism which lifts up the needy," added Tada, who has been a quadriplegic for close to 50 years. "I strongly urge you to join me in supporting his campaign for U.S. president." more >>
The Center for Medical Progress has released a video that purports to show overlooked evidence that reveals how a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic used accounting gimmicks to disguise its illegal profiting from the sell of aborted baby parts to researchers.
The Tuesday release of CMP's latest video comes two days before CMP's indicted founder, David Daleiden, will present himself in Harris County court to address felony and misdemeanor charges that came as a result of a grand jury investigation into a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic's fetal tissue reimbursement practices.
Although CMP and pro-life supporters believe that CMP's fifth video released last year shows a Houston Planned Parenthood official explaining how the clinic skirts around state and federal fetal tissue reimbursement laws, it was Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, who were indicted with felony charges last month for tampering with governmental records, while officials from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast were cleared of criminal wrongdoing. more >>
The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control is now urging condom use to prevent the spread of the Zika virus after health officials in Texas reported that a Dallas resident contracted the virus through sex.
Dallas County Health and Human Services officials told NBC5 that the patient got infected after having sex with an infected person who recently returned from a trip to Venezuela.
"A person who recently traveled to an area with Zika virus transmission returned to the United States and developed Zika-like symptoms. The person later tested positive for Zika, along with their sexual partner, who had not traveled to the area," a statement from the CDC said. more >>
