Curing Cancer One Step Closer

Curing Cancer Is One Step Closer 

From the desk of Dr Magne, author of http://www.Cancer-Free-For-Life.comGuy Dauncey,  co-chair of http://www.preventCancernow.ca, writes that there are many ways to describe how our world came to be so affected by Cancer. Here is how the vicious cycle got started. 

It started with farming 200 years ago when the German chemist Justus von Liebig (1803-1873) wondered what soil was made from. He burnt some and found that the ashes contained potassium and phosphorus. So farmers began feeding their soil with fertilizer of potassium and phosphorus instead of organic matter. This has led to a dramatic loss of minerals in the soil. From 1940 to 2002, plants grown on modern farms have lost 47 % of their iron, 21 % of their magnesium and 100 % of their copper. (Except when they are grown organically.) Humans: 0— Cancer cells: 1 

The plants are now more susceptible to insects and pests, so farmers treat them with pesticides and fungicides. This seems to make the problems go away, but plants have evolved over millions of years and are extraordinarily successful at fighting off disease. When they sense an attack coming, they generate phytonutrients to defend themselves. When we eat those plants, we acquire their disease-fighting qualities. When the plants are no longer attacked by the insects and pests because the pesticides keep them away, they don’t generate the phytonutrients, so even if we eat our five servings of fruit and veggies a day, they won’t contain the disease-fighting properties we need. (Unless they have been grown organically.) Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 2 

Our bodies need selenium too; it’s a natural Cancer-fighting agent. But the fertilizers bind to the selenium, inhibiting its uptake by plants. Mercury pollution and acid rain from burning fossil fuels also inhibit its uptake. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 3 

The food is harvested, but since the phytonutrients give fruit juice a bitter taste, and we prefer a sweet, smooth taste, they are removed by the bottlers. We also ship much of our fruit and vegetables in from Florida and
California, where they are picked before they are ripe, and before they have had a chance to develop phytonutrients. Humans: 0—
Cancer cells: 4
 

Meanwhile, people are eating more meat. This is good news for the cancer cells, because meat gives nowhere near the protection that plant foods do. Wherever people eat a vegetarian diet, they have less cancer. Humans: 0, — Cancer cells: 5 

What else do we eat? Sugar, of course! The average North American consumes 150 pounds of sugar, sucrose and fructose a year. This requires the pancreas to produce more insulin, raising our level of blood sugar, which the body stores as fat. The fat sends weird messages to our hormones (another cause of cancer) and sucks up toxic chemicals such as PCBs and chemical flame-retardants. This is great news for the cancer cells. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 6 

Because many people don’t like to get fat, however, the food industry uses sweeteners made from aspartame, which has “Warning: Cancer!” written all over it. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 7 

By now, we’re getting busy, so we sit our kiddies by the TV where the average child watches a junk food commercial every five minutes. By two years of age, 20 % of our babies are eating candy every day. The lack of exercise, combined with the sugar intake, makes them overweight. Then we feed them hot dogs, containing nitrite additives that form carcinogens. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 8 

Meanwhile, we are cooking our meat at high temperatures, eating baked goods and using microwaves. All this generates acrylamides, which are known to cause cancer in animals. Our fruits and veggies have pesticide residues (unless they have been grown organically), and our soft drinks contain ingredients that form benzene, another potent carcinogen. To make the junk food taste better, industry adds chemical colourants, flavourings and preservatives. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 9 

Finally, many mothers do all this during pregnancy, feeding their growing babies the worst possible diet. And still too many mothers fail to breastfeed, depriving their children of their full immune system development. Humans: 0— cancer cells: 10 

The way to turn the game around? Stop all the nonsense. Eat fresh, home-prepared, locally grown, organic, vegetarian food — raw where possible — with all its minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants intact. Humans: 10 — Cancer cells: 0 

There are many causes for cancer, not the least of which is a predisposition in the environment. You must remember that we all carry cancer cells in our body. They are cells that modify themselves due to environmental stresses and emotional or physical stresses. The role of the immune system is to eliminate these cells, which it does in the course of its normal functioning. In www.Cancer-Free-for-Life.com, I explain the crucial role of the immune system in fighting Cancer, and suggest effective and natural methods for remaining Cancer-free. 

If you live in a stressful environment, share a house with someone with whom you are in a toxic relationship, if you are unhappy with your job, and eat foods that don’t support your body, then cancer is more likely to develop. Why? Because as more demands are put on the immune system, it attends to what it considers its priorities. It aims for survival. It will fight an infection before it fights cancer cells. If you are feeding it unhealthy foods, sugars, foods that are laden with pesticides and fungicides, it becomes weakened and has to work harder to conduct its normal duties. Your thoughts and emotions will also affect your immune system, and negative thoughts and hurtful emotions such as anger, depression, sadness, have been shown to depress and weaken the immune system. You must realize how vitally important it is for you to become aware of your every thought. Further, you must reclaim your life and your happiness. You do have a choice over the circumstances of your life, who inhabits it, what work you do. Your life depends on it! You too can be Cancer free!!! Today!!!

    Wow, what eye opening information!!! Thanks for sharing.

    I would love it if you checked out the site http://www.flipitforlife.com. It’s all about changing our attitudes and putting things in perspective- even better, it donates all of its net proceeds to cancer research!
