Diets and stomach cancer and metastasis.

Chili peppers hottest variety.

A few of life’s necessities include food, water and shelter. To a bumblebee, it will be nectar from flowers. One equation of life is, the goal of life is life.

Hence the need to keep healthy with a healthy diet for quality life. 
We try our able best to link our food with health.

My nephew’s story about his patient’s dying cancer stage, prompted me to read more on stomach cancer. His patient started with a stomach cancer which then spread to the lungs and kidney via a process called metastasis.

This patient is a habitual user of microwave oven, but sadly, had been using the wrong type of containers to heat up foodies (in microwave oven).
Here are extracts with links provided.

Stomach (gastric) cancer 
After Lung cancer, Stomach (gastric) cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death worldwide.

A high salt diet is linked with gastric cancer. So are smoked and pickled foods. As well diets low in vitamin C, low in fruits, vegetables and grains. Often due to smoking, obesity, alchohol, age (over 60). It is twice more common in men. Infection with the bacterium  Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is the main risk factor in about 80 percent or more of stomach cancers.

Link  here  In anatomy, the stomach is an organ in the gastrointestinal tract used to digest food.
A study group led by Columbia University Medical Center's Timothy Wang, M.D. found that the hormone gastrin, which stimulates secretion of gastric acid, plays a key role in the development of Helicobacter-induced stomach cancer.
More than 50 percent of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter, which causes chronic inflammation of the stomach lining and is strongly linked to the development of gastric ulcers and stomach cancer.

Stomach cancer (also called gastric cancer) can develop in any part of the stomach. It may also spread to other organs, through the stomach wall, to nearby lymph nodes and organs such as the liver, pancreas, and the lungs, or to distant organs such as the lymph nodes above the collar bone, the colon, and the ovaries.

Metastasis is the spread of cancer from its primary site(eg stomach) to other places in the body (secondary sites- eg. brain and liver).
The Primary tumors however, are responsible for only 10% of cancer deaths.
The Secondary tumors are the main causes of death. They developed from metastases of the primary tumor, by spreading via the patient’s bloodstream.

Diets recommended to include:
-Capsaicin in chili peppers/ chili and jalapenos- helps prevent stomach cancer
-Flavonoids and catechins are nutrients that give foods a bitter taste, but they also are emerging as potential anticancer agents. In fact, catechins are 100 times more powerful than vitamin C and 25 times more powerful than vitamin E in their antioxidant/growth inhibitor powers.
The best sources are green and black teas, chocolate, grapes, garlic, onions, shallots and leeks.  A single tablespoon of cinnamon has more antioxidants than 8 ounces of broccoli.

-Beta carotene as in carrots- stomach, lung, colon, bladder, prostate and breast cancers- important not to cook the carrots.
-High in vitamin C foodies- include red and green chili peppers, guavas, dark leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, kiwi fruits, papayas, oranges and strawberries. Eat fresh and unprocessed for maximum health benefits.

Chili pepper plant- TMS, world’s hottest ever grown

The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is currently the world's hottest Chili pepper cultivar. As of February 2012, research by the New Mexico State University Chile Institute ranked their (golf ball size) fruits from individual plants as high as 2,009,231 SHU on the Scoville scale, making it the hottest chili pepper in the world to date.
Paul Bosland, a renowned chili pepper expert and director of the Chile Institute, said that, "You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty." The chili pepper’s mean heat topped more than 1.2 million units on the Scoville heat scale.
Commercially, the world's hottest available chili pepper

However, commercially, the world's hottest available chili pepper is still the “Naga Bhut Jolokia”, with a reported Scoville Heat Unit rating of 1.6 million SHU. 
Also known as ghost pepper/ ghost chili and is 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.
