Why is it that the #2 killer in the United States has it's own month dedicated to eradicating it...and NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT IT?
Wanna know my opinion? Of coarse you do, you are reading my blog! I think (humbly of coarse) that all of the ribbons, and walks, and fundraisers are skirting the real issue. Cancer is big business! Those that have the power to blast information to millions and millions of people chose not to because they are either mis-informed or it would murder their long-sought-after-career with the big wigs at the FDA, the CDC, the USDA.
There is no huge profit margin in fruits and vegetables- not like in the pharmaceutical industry. There is no glamour in preventing a disaster long before it has time to escalate. Conventional medicine wants to be a hero and say that their new drug is the miracle that is going to "cure" cancer.
Why jump through radiation filled hoops when you are two steps from death's door when you could have made small changes along the way that would have prevented your disease in the first place? I know when my grandmother got to the place where she was facing the end she questioned what she could have done differently. She told me. I only wish I had 1/2 of the information I do now. It might not have made any difference.
But you have time. You can still make small changes that will very obviously impact your health now and for the long run.
“So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.” -A. J. Reb MateriIf you only do one thing this month for your health, do this - go through all the food in your house and throw out everything with the following ingredients:
- high fructose corn syrup
- hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils
And then go to the grocery store and read every label of every item you pick up. Do not buy anything with those two ingredients in it.
You don't have to go to extremes like some of us do, but you absolutely will be doing yourself and your family a huge service.
Cancer is preventable. Many people do it. You just have to DO something about it. You can't rely on "magical" pills.
