Many cancer patients use dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals and herbs or other botanicals but often don't tell their doctor. This gap in communication can happen when patients believe that their doctors are indifferent or negative toward their use of these supplements. As a result, patients may find information about dietary supplements from unreliable sources, exposing themselves to unneeded risks, experts say.

Miniature two-color barcodes have the potential to combat forgery and track cancerous cells, investigators say. Tiny rod-like single crystals that act as miniature dual-color barcodes have been synthesized by researchers. The researchers have demonstrated the potential of these barcodes for two very different applications: anti-counterfeiting measures and cell tracking.

A charity endorsed by celebrities including Jerry Hall and Jerome Flynn was last night accused of promoting a Vitamin C therapy which falsely claims to ‘kill cancer’.Doctors listed on the Yes To Life (YTL) website charge patients – many of whom are dying – up to £3,000 to administer high doses of intravenous Vitamin C, despite it being clinically unproven against any form of cancer. Yet a description on the website makes it sound like a virtual panacea, suggesting it can be used against all kinds of conditions.Medical experts last night described the claims as ‘quackery’ and called for the Charity Commission to investigate.  One has already reported YTL to the Advertising Standards Authority.Until last week, YTL’s website carried a glowing endorsement from actress Maureen Lipman, but when it was drawn to her attention by The Mail on Sunday she said she had no memory of the words ascribed to her.‘I looked at their website and I got the idea they were saying, “This cures cancer”,’ she said, ‘so I asked them to remove it, which they did.’Last night, leading cancer consultant Agamemnon Epenetos described the YTL claims as ‘inaccurate’ and ‘false’. He said: ‘There is no evidence at all. Major studies have been done and have shown that there is no evidence that it works in cancer.’

Something that is good for us can also be bad for us. It may sound illogical, but it's why one week we can read that something is a universal panacea only to become a powerful carcinogen the next.Take oily fish. It's full of good things such as long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, but also contains pollutants. How good or bad it is depends on who you are and how much you eat. (Check out the NHS Choices website for information on oily fish).And what about the claims for 'superfoods' such as blueberries and goji berries? Read the smallprint of the research and inevitably it will say something like, 'at some unspecified point in the future the chemical in this superfood may provide benefit to some patients'.
That's fine, but all this means is that by now many of us have a healthy scepticism about the next claim to come along. We start to suspect that quite apart from making the people who eat them hugely dull, foods that are 'good for us' may not be quite as good for us as we've been lead to believe.So when beetroot hit the headlines a few years ago with claims about improved athletic performance and lower blood pressure, many probably dismissed them. I certainly did.Then I met Dr Andrew Webb.

Apple Pie with Walnut Crumb Topping

Baking is the ultimate in interactive, intergenerational family fun! From stirring the batter to licking the beaters, there’s a job for everyone, big and small.

Creating cookies, cakes and pies together doesn’t have to be a big production. If you stock your pantry with baking staples, you’ll be ready whenever the mood strikes your brood. (Got cousins or grandkids visiting? Baking together is a great way to bond!)

Spices

Dried spices lose their potency and freshness within six months to a year from the date they’re first opened, so the spices from last year’s cookie bake-a-thon may need to be replaced. Check your spice cabinet and then stock up on baking essentials, including:

  • Cinnamon
  • Cloves
  • Nutmeg
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice 

For a new twist on your family’s favorites, check out our Whole Foods Market™ Cocoa Sugar Grinder. It’s a simple way to add a sweet, satisfying crunch to all kinds of cookies, from Classic Sugar Cookies to Chocolate Mocha Sugar Cookies.

Grandma tip: Got leftover bits of pie crust? My granny used to roll out the scraps, put them on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, then pop ‘em in the oven for a quick and toasty treat. This year, I’m going to take her tradition to the next level with the cocoa sugar grinder!

Vanilla

I can’t tell you how many of my baking projects have sputtered out because I thought I had vanilla, but the bottle in my cabinet was nearly empty. (Dang those opaque bottles!) Double-check your supply before you get started.

Vanilla elevates flavors in all kinds of holiday recipes, from Baked Cranberry Walnut French Toast to Pumpkin, Brown Sugar and Cashew Biscotti, so it’s an especially essential holiday flavor.

 

Gift Idea: Looking for a culinary gift for the cooks in your life? Whip up a batch of Vanilla Bean Sugar with a Whole Foods Market™ Organic Fair Trade Vanilla Bean. The recipe includes a link to a printable gift tag, so your handy gift from home will have a polished touch.

Chocolate

Whether your crew craves old-fashioned fudge, classic chocolate chip cookies or something nontraditional, like Cherry-Pistachio Crunch Bark, it’s good to have several different kinds of baking chocolate on hand, including:

  • 365 Everyday Value® Dark Chocolate Baking Chunks
  • 365 Everyday Value® Milk Chocolate Baking Chips Jumbo
  • 365 Everyday Value® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Chips
  • 365 Everyday Value® White Chocolate Baking Chips Mini
  • 365 Everyday Value® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Chips Mini

Holiday bonus: These 365 Everyday Value® baking chocolates proudly carry the Whole Trade® seal. That means your purchase gives back to the communities where the chocolate is sourced and helps make tangible improvements in real people’s lives. How’s that for a sweet treat?

 

Baking Mixes

Whether you’re pinched for time or whipping something up on a whim, sometimes it helps to have a couple of baking mixes on hand. But don’t trade quality for convenience!

Our quality standards don’t allow any artificial colors or flavors, and our baking mixes are full of authentic ingredients — including real figs in our 365 Everyday Value® Sticky Figgy Pudding Cake Mix and real molasses and ginger in our 365 Everyday Value®   Gingerbread Crackle Cookie Mix.

Find more recipes for cookies, pies, desserts, breads and muffins, and more in our online holiday guide.

Does your family have a special baked good that you make every year? Share some inspiration from your oven to ours!
