Cancer – Get Used to It

Your chance of getting cancer is now 1 in 3 – up from 1 in 33 just 100 years ago. At this rate, your children will have half a chance of getting cancer and for your grandchildren it will be a sure thing.

What about the War on Cancer?

Well, it has given us a tremendous cancer industry. There are now more people making a living off of cancer than have cancer. The average cancer patient spends over $300,000 before he/she dies. This is a tremendous success for a business that provides practically no value.

The wrong premise.

We just started off with the wrong goal. We said, “We know that most cancer is caused by lifestyle, diet, pollution, radiation and the tremendous number of toxins we ingest every day, but let’s ignore that and try to find a drug that can make it go away once we get it. This may just be impossible, but we will keep trying.”

Such a waste.

If only we could have spent some of that money on going after the causes of cancer. Clearly we are doing something wrong yet we are afraid to look at it. Most admit that up to 90% of cancers are preventable, but we spend less than 10% of our research money in prevention. Instead, over 90% of our research money goes to such marginally effective treatments as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and now gene research.

Clearly the industry does not want to prevent cancer. It wants
to treat cancer.

What can I do?

  1. First, don’t wait until you have a cancer diagnosis. Most agree that it takes years before most cancers are detected – as much as 20 years or more. You need to adjust your life now.
  2. Build your immune system – the prevailing cancer theory in alternative medicine is that we all get cancer every day. As long as your immune system is strong, the cancer is destroyed immediately. A weakened immune system will allow the cancer to grow. There is no quick answer to this – I will write more on this later.
  3. Reduce the toxic burden on your body. You know what to do – get those chemicals out of your life. Foods – avoid processed foods, buy organic whole foods, and avoid restaurants. Home – use natural cleaning agents and pesticides – you can find them. Work – avoid jobs and industries that force you to be exposed to toxins – it’s not worth it.

Basically, strive for whole health and you will reduce your chance of cancer. Almost all the advice on this site will better your chances. Hang in there. Make it a distant goal for your life – make those small steps that keep you moving in that direction. Before you know it, you will have made big changes.
