BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and America is awash in pink. A staggering $6 billion is spent every year on breast cancer research with no medical cure in sight. Is it possible we are looking in the wrong place? Bits of Health™ Inc. thinks so. Research has consistently shown that eating green, alkaline foods prevents breast cancer 82% of the time. The only problem is most people don't like greens or don't have time to make them. Newly launched Bits of Health™ Inc. has the solution. They sell tiny algae tablets called "bits" that are swallowed or chewed and instantly give you all the green nutrition you need for the day. If this sounds too good to be true, it's not. Algae has been taken by Olympic athletes and tens of millions in Asia for over fifty years. NASA has fed it to the astronauts for decades because "algae has 1,000 times more nutrition than fruits and vegetables." The Japanese eat algae every day and have 75% fewer incidences of breast cancer. Could it be the algae? Bits of Health™ Inc. thinks so.
The company was started four years ago when Founder Catharine Arnston learned her younger sister in Canada had breast cancer and was told by her oncologist to eat an alkaline diet to help her heal. What's an alkaline diet? It's a diet full of greens. The antioxidants, chlorophyll and phyto-nutrients fight cancer and build the immune system. The scientific community has long known about the healing powers of alkaline, green foods and their research proves it prevents cancer. A quote from The European Journal of Cancer explains: "not only did a high vegetable consumption reduce the risk of breast cancer by 75 percent but micronutrients like beta carotene reduce the risk of breast cancer by 82 per cent."
If breast cancer could be prevented by eliminating acidic foods and by adding alkaline, green foods, Catharine felt the women in America needed to know. She gave up her 25 year corporate career, returned to school to study nutrition and proceeded to launch her "greens revolution." But when she found that most people either didn't like eating greens or had no time to prepare them, she knew she had to find a faster, easier solution. It turned out to be algae.
Algae is highly regarded around the world. It was used to prevent mass starvation after both WW I and WWII and is endorsed by the Carnegie Institute, United Nations, the World Bank and NASA as the most nutritionally dense food in the world. It has more chlorophyll than wheat grass, more beta carotene than carrots, more iron than spinach and more protein than steak. Its nutritional pedigree is so deep, there are 100,000 studies documenting its ability to stop cancer tumors, breast cancer and more. It contains no sugar, no caffeine, no chemicals, no gluten and requires no cooking, no chopping, no preparation, all for just one calorie.
The only problem with algae is that Americans consider it pond scum. Little do they know it's a nutritional superstar. It became clear to Catharine that if America was ever going to embrace algae, she needed to give it a makeover. As a result, all her algae brands have playful names like ENERGYbits®, SKINNYbits®, RECOVERYbits® and VITALITYbits.® The bits are so small they can be easily swallowed or chewed and the large bags are sold with slim refillable travel tins that are sleek, savvy and stylish and fit in your pocket.
After three and a half years, Bits of Health™ Inc. is now growing nationally. Consumers and athletes coast to coast have caught the buzz about algae and are learning what the rest of the world has known for fifty years – that algae is the most nutritionally dense, green food in the world and the easiest way to protect one's health. More importantly, Bits of Health Inc. are now giving women in America a fighting chance to protect themselves from breast cancer, colds, fatigue, high blood pressure, heart disease, toxicity and just about every other type of illness.
With over 200,000 cases of breast cancer being reported every year, and with 82% of breast cancers being preventable with green nutrition, 164,000 lives could potentially be saved every year just by eating greens. Could algae be the breast cancer cure we've been waiting for? Bits of Health™ Inc. thinks so. Algae makes health easy. Bits of Health Inc. makes it possible.
