Cancer Truths you Didn't know !
No matter who you are or where you are from, cancer is an existing part of society. Many die and many survive. No person is just sitting there saying, “ Oops cancer happens, Oh well”. We are constantly looking for a cure. Recently Johns Hopkins Cancer Treatment Hospital released something about cancer that we didn't know.
Everyone has cancer. No seriously, it has been studied on healthy people and people who have cancer. Everyone has cancer cells in their body. These cancer cells do not show up on tests until studied under a microscope. Cancer is virtually undetectable until those cells are multiplied to several billion. When a person is told that there are no more cancer cells, It just means that the cancer is now undetectable with tests.
Cancer cells happen between 6 + times in a persons life. That is a lot to be detected.
If you have a strong immune system, and you take care of yourself, cancer cells can be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and creating the cancerous tumors.
When cancer is detected in a persons body, it usually indicates that a person has several nutritional deficiencies. This can be caused by their environment, lifestyle, food, andx even their genetics. If your family, people tend to get cancer, then it is most likely you will end up with it also.
In order to fix the nutritional deficiencies, the person must change their diet and add in supplements that can increase their immune system.
Chemotherapy is a way to poison the rapid growing cells and it also kills the rapid growing healthy cells in places like the gastrointestinal tract, bone marrow and more and can seriously damage your organs like the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys.
Radiation will kill the cancer cells but in the process it also scars, burns, and damages healthy tissue, organs, and healthy cells.
The first treatments of radiation and chemotherapy normally reduce the size of the tumor, but if the treatment needs to be ongoing, it will not result in the destruction of the tumor.
When the body has too many toxic chemicals from the radiation and chemotherapy, the immune system has either been destroyed or is compromised. This can cause the person going through the treatment to get all sorts of complications and infections.
Radiation and Chemotherapy can often cause the cancer cells to become resistant to treatment and mutate and very difficult to destroy. Having surgery to remove cancerous tumors can also cause the cancer cells to spread to other areas of the body.
A good way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not giving it what it needs to multiply.
Do you know someone who has cancer?
Now you may ask, well what foods should a person try to avoid when they have cancer or if they are trying to prevent cancer.
Avoid Sugar ! Sugar is literally a cancer feeder. When you cut out sugar, you are cutting off an important food supply for cancer cells. I am not saying not have anything sweet, try not to use NutraSweet, Equal, or sugar substitutes that contain Aspartame. The chemical Aspartame can cause serious heart issues. Try a natural sweetener such as honey or molasses, but only in small amounts.
- We naturally have Cancer cells
- We can only slow down the inevitable
- Don't eat sugar, so pretty much no good junk food
- Bottom line, cancer sucks!
Say No to MILK ! Milk creates mucus in the stomach that cancer cells feed on. When you take out milk and substitute it with Almond or soy milk, the cancer has nothing to feed on.
No More Acidic Foods! Cancer cells live in an acidic environment. A meat-based diet, is highly acidic and it is recommended to eat fish and just a little bit of chicken rather than red meats or pork. Your average meat contains livestock antibiotics, parasites, and growth-hormones which are dangerous for people with cancer. Also, Meat protein is hard to digest and require a lot of digestive enzymes. When the meat is undigested, what is left in the intestines will become putrid and leads to toxic buildup.

High Sugar Fruit
More Vegetables ! When your diet is consisted of very little meat and over 80% of fresh vegetable and fresh juice, seeds, nuts, some fruits and whole grains, you are creating an alkaline environment for you body. The other 20% can be cooked foods that includes beans. Fresh vegetable juice provides live enzymes that are easy to absorb and within 15 minutes start to enhance the growth of healthy cells. If you don't like juice, try to eat raw vegetables at least 3 times daily. The natural enzymes die at about 104 degrees F, when cooked.
Get Rid of the Caffeine ! Chocolate, Tea, and Coffee are things that are high in caffeine. If you want to drink tea, try Green Tea with honey. This has cancer fighting properties and tastes a lot better. Drink purified water or filtered water to avoid heavy metals and toxins that are found in your average tap water. Distilled water is acidic and it is best to avoid it.
Take Supplements ! There are certain supplements that help to better the immune system such as Essiac, IP6, Anti-oxidants, EFAs, Vitamins, Flor-ssences, etc. These help to enable to the body to boost its own killer cells to help destroy the cancer cells. Other supplements such as Vitamin E are known to cause Apoptosis, or a programmed cell death, this is the body's natural method of getting rid of unneeded, damaged, and unwanted cells.
Be Proactive ! When you are positive and continue to be proactive it will help any cancer survivor be a warrior. Cancer is a disease of the body, spirit, and mind. Being Angry, bitter, and unforgiving put the body in an acidic and stressful environment. So learn to be forgiving and loving and relax and enjoy life.
Though it hasn't been medically proven many say that oxygen therapy has helped them battle cancer. Cancer cells cannot thrive in a highly oxygenated environment. When you exercise daily and deep breathing meditation help the body's natural cells absorb more oxygen on cellular level. Some have stated that oxygen therapy is a means to help destroy cancer cells.
