Wheatgrass and Wheatgrass Juicer - Dietary and Medicinal Benefits

Dr. Chiu-nan Lai, Ph.D., at the University of Texas Cancer Center, Dept. of Biology, Houston, Texas has determined through using the Ames Bacterial Mutagenicity Test that chlorophyll is the active factor in wheat sprout extract which inhibits the metabolic activity of carcinogens. A 20-year study of 20,000 telephone company workers has found that a natural ingredient in carrots and leafy green vegetables significantly reduced the risk of lung cancer in cigarette smokers. They determined that a diet high in beta-carotene negated the bad effects of 30 years of smoking.

For those of us who choose to continue on smoking, it would be nice if we could be the recipients of more useful information such as this via the mainstream media. All stereotypes aside, with the proper information that is free of bias and bigotry, some of us smokers have the ability to live healthy and productive lives well into old age. ..Any sarcasm on my part is intended.
