Clearly mainstream science is not winning in the battle against cancer. In spite of the vast sums of money that have been spent in the search for a cure the situation is only becoming more and more serious with the passage of time. Because of this many of our leading scientists are now beginning to wonder whether it would not be best if our major efforts could be directed towards prevention.
How do cancer cells develop?
If we are to understand how to achieve prevention, we need to know what the disease is, how it originates and what we must do to check its development. Let’s remember that a cancer cell is simply a cell that has been forced to adapt itself to certain stimuli or irritants. These stimuli or irritants may develop in the body as by-products of an abnormal or disordered metabolism, or may be taken into the system from outside in the form of drugs, chemicals, unsuitable foods or other toxic substances. When these stimuli or irritants threaten the life of the cell, the cell will either die or it will adapt itself to the changes in its environment. In doing this it becomes an abnormal cell, a deranged cell, a cancer cell.
Abnormal cells do not necessarily present a threat to our lives. It is well known that practically every human being at one time or another develops cancer cells in the body, but when the body is in a healthy condition, it usually destroys these cells and no cancer develops.
Some years ago, Dr Cornelius Rhoads, one of the most renowned cancer authorities, appearing before the Royal College of Surgeons in London, pointed out that ‘persons in normal health appear to have a natural defence against cancer and can throw off the disease after it attacks body tissue’. The Journal of the American Medical Association, some time later, also explained that the body possesses the power to destroy cancer cells. It states that ‘there is..
- a time when cancer cells do appear and are killed by the patient’s natural defences
- a time when the patient’s resistance is low and these cells grow, metastasize and kill the patient.
Another noted authority on cancer, Dr Kasper Blond, emphasizes that the liver is the key organ that protects the body against the onset of the disease and as long as the liver is in a healthy condition, it can protect the body against cancer.
Remove the cause
All this clearly proves where the real answer to the problem of cancer lies; it is not in the discovery of an elusive cure, but in prevention, in the adoption of a way of living that keeps the body in a healthy condition.
We must accept that disease never comes without a cause. Sure, there are times when people inherit the diseases of their parents, yet far too often we put the cause down to hereditary factors when, with respect, it was not the diseases of our parents that we inherited, but the same disease-causing cooking methods, foods and lifestyle!
In the treatment of any disease, our primary focus must be on the removal of causes and not merely on the suppression of symptoms. We need to be prepared to give up whatever is making us ill. Only then can we hope for recovery. A cancer patient cannot simply rest his or her hopes on therapy while continuing the same eating and lifestyle habits as before. In general terms it is our improved health and vitality that ultimately overcomes disease. To drive out disease we need to ‘fill up’ on health!
Prevention starts on your plate
Let’s face it: it’s really hard to see the light side of cancer. On the bright side though, many experts believe that at least 50% of cancer cases could be averted with changes in diet. Cancer usually develops slowly, over many years, and goes through a number of stages. The sooner we make dietary changes, the better our chances of never having to battle this deadly foe. There’s no one magic bullet to prevent cancer, nevertheless, research shows that certain nutrients stand out as valiant warriors in the war against cancer.
