    For me, it would be based on the food we eat and lifestyle.  Taking care of oneself is very important as well to prevent cancer or any diseases.  A lot of prayer would be anther way. big_smile

      Hello JK sophie and yes you are right. It is based on the food we eat and lifestyle. What we have to remember is that bacteria causes a lot of diseases and proper holistic nutrition by way of balancing your PH levels will beat disease and keep you very healthy.

    its an OPEN SYSTEM theory. this is like a chain INPUT-OUTPUT-feedback

    meaning what we intake(INPUT) it will process(OUTPUT)and whatever you intake whether thats good or bad there is a consequences or might a reward(FEEDBACK)

    Another overlooked possible reason for cancer is our emotional states.
    Extreme and prolonged stress levels can have an influence on our DNA.
    Right now, in this economic climate, I hope all are keeping a cool head and
    trying to stay calm.

    You can eat a totally healthy diet for all of your life, and pray 10 times a day, and still get cancer.  There was one of the first natural/organic food gurus years ago, I forget her name, who died of stomach cancer.  I'm sure there have been very pious ministers who have died of it as well. 

    You can reduce your risk of cancer by eating healthy, and not having bad habits like smoking or drinking, but it doesn't make you immune.

    My grandmother died of liver cancer caused by eating too many sweets.  It's not the alcohol in the liquor that kills you, it's the sugar.  She never drank more than a small glass of wine once or twice a week in her life.

    Breast cancer has nothing whatsoever to do with what you eat, and has been proven to be genetic.

    So live a healthy lifestyle, and reduce your risks, but neither food nor prayer will save you from cancer.

      Well said. I don't like being told I was responsible for my breast cancer alone. But, I was diagnosed with cancer after a very stressful time at work.

        The truth is, your breast cancer probably had been there long before you stress at work.  The genes that made you prone to it were probably in your body when you were born, and something happened that made it come to life.  Stress simply makes bad situations show up because it compromises your immune system, making whatever is wrong with you show up in some other way.  You didn't go to the doctor and say "I think I have breast cancer", I'm sure.  You probably got sick in some other way from stress, and they found the cancer.  Most cancers are diagnosed not by the symptoms they cause, but while looking for another disease.

        My lupus was diagnosed after major stress as well, but unlike cancer, lupus is sometimes caused by long term (years), unrelenting stress.  I went through several years of severe stress, and it at one point caused my immune system to shut down completely.  When it came back up, it went into overdrive, thus the lupus.  Now my body is fighting itself.

        Having lupus, I am much more likely to have cancer, because my immune system is compromised.

      That's a good one!  Thanks!  This will definitely help those people who want to prevent having it (whatever type of cancer it is). smile

    Yes, that's so true. 
    I am one of the Healthiest people in my family, and did all of the right things,
    and yes I learned I had Breast Cancer in Jan. of 07.

    I ate more salads and vegetables than meat.  Drank a lot of water, always filtered.
    Took great vitamins, supplements, herbs, etc.  Worked out, stayed in shape,
    never overweight, don't microwave food, tried to not eat any hydrogenated foods,
    some alcohol, never smoked, no drugs, you name it.

    I feel that from looking back on my life, and now meeting and comparing notes
    with others, Lifestyle has more to do with it as well.

    At the time I was working for the most toxic person I had ever met.
    I was very depressed with the career choice I had made, and where I was to
    go from there. Couldn't think straight, make decisions, losing money, etc.
    I was, of course, not eating well, not sleeping, quit working out, my whole
    life pattern had changed. I finally walked away.

    Later with in a few months, I found two lumps.  No one in my family had ever had
    Cancer at all, much less Breast Cancer. It was caught early, but fairly aggressive.
    Already gone to first sac of lymph nodes. 

    Before I started Chemo, I wanted to step up my nutritional intake to ensure my
    immune system would be at its optimum.  I researched the recommendations by the
    American Cancer Society.  I found a perfect amazing Whole Live Food Supplement
    approved by the American Cancer Society and hailed by many well re noun Doctors,
    Medical Universities, Hospitals, Researchers, the list is a mile long.

    What was my Chemo and now Health weapon of choice?? 
    Juice Plus+  Boy perfect for Chemo patients, due to the fact you can barely eat.
    Its like juicing 17+ fruits and vegetables and you get to drink it down in a capsule.
    Compared to most, I did better than anyone the Chemo Lab had ever seen. They said
    I made it look easy.  I had my days, but for the most part, I looked like a normal
    healthy person.  Now I continue to take Juice Plus+, and I was the only one that did
    not get sick thru the holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm suppose to be the one with the weakened
    immune system. yeahhhhhhhhhh!! 

    Everyone needs to check out what the Medical Professionals have to say about
    Juice Plus+, but especially those of us who have already experienced the RATH
    of Cancer.

    antioxidants will surely help.
