    If everyone in a household ate the same food, drank the same liquids, why would only one of them get cancer? Please make a hub about it.

    Because cancer, as well as other illnesses is the result not only of nutritional status and toxin ingestion but also genetic factors, individual resistance and physiology and other environmental factors.

    Mental state is also closely linked to cancer. Negative feelings and emotions can disrupt the body's harmony and allow things like cancer to grow.

    genetics is a huge factor in disease. and i think in weight as well. my pets have convinced me of this. i have 2 pet rats. one is a bit on the thin side. the other is a bit of a chunker. and she has developed a good sized fatty tumor. the only difference between them is their dna. they are sisters. they live in the same cage. they are offered the same food. but they couldn't be any more different.

    Cancer is not caused by food, or rather diet alone.  There are genetic factors, environmental factors. Frankly, I think genetics is likely the biggest factor.  My mother was one of 5 children, 3 of them died of cancer.  I'm not liking those odds!

    Perhaps that person had a different blood type than the others.  There is some scientific evidence that indicates that some blood types do better eating some foods than others.  O blood types seem to lean toward getting cancer while A' s lean toward.heart problems..

    I have to agree with KimmiS. Unresolved emotional issues can fester in the subconscious or the conscious mind (as well as in the body itself) and decrease the bodies' vibrational level, which leaves it open to dis-ease. Clear the issues, forgive and be grateful and you will improve the bodies' vibrational level to one of ease.

    Were they all x-rayed the same number of times? Same number of CT scans?  Smoke the same amount and same brand? Are they the same age?

    Did they die of a heart attack before the cancer in their body was discovered? (It can take 20-30 years to spot a cancer.)

    Was one expiosed to fumes from work for years?

    Did the one who cleans the house use a lot of toxic cleaners, such as bleach?

    Finally did they all eat the same portions? Did one eat only the potatoes and skip the salad?

    etc, etc, etc.
