44% of men and 37% of women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.* This means, more than likely, someone you love and care for will get this. In fact, you could even be the one sitting on the doctor’s table.
There’s much to write about as it relates to cancer; the fight, the cause and the cure. I could spend weeks just writing on the cause, many weeks and many tears more writing about the fight. Cancer is one of those “I can’t believe it happened to ME” diseases that many learn is a lonely and painful process. If you already have a suppressed immune system, your chances are greater of being diagnosed.
Our body creates cells, and if those cells are retarded in some fashion, it is our bodie’s duty to kill them so that the bad cells can not replicate.
Pretty simple right?
But, what if your system doesn’t catch those bad cells in time? Well, they continue to grow and mature and replicate and grow a nice little home (tumor) somewhere in your body. But your body would need to be producing a lot of bad cells in order to create a tumor right?
Bad cells replicate themselves at a faster rate than your healthy cells. What that means to you, is for every 5 good guys, you have another 10 bad guys. Drugs attempt to kill the cancer cells, and do; but the very basis of science tells us that this very action to the body has a reaction inside the body- and it’s not always positive.
Did you know that 100 years ago breast cancer was basically unheard of? How is that possible? Why are more women getting breast cancer? Why are younger and younger women being diagnosed with it? What’s changed?
The pink ribbon suppliers and cancer donation-takers don’t want to answer those questions.
Nor do they want to answer what percentage of funds goes to the actual care/research of cancer.
Let’s face it, you buying a cute little pink bracelet or water bottle isn’t going to cure Sarah’s cancer. We all know that, but we’re afraid to do nothing at all, after all we “want to help”.
Eat2Live serves a lot of women, and in keeping with that, Eat2Live always stresses taking care of YOU first. So, before we even get into (and we won’t) fundraising, medical costs, treatment options and the like, let’s talk about you.
Eat2Live’s goal is to ensure that you are healthy and strong enough to handle whatever life throws at you- including cancer. I imagine that out of all our readers, a few of you will end up being diagnosed one day (statistically), so heed my words.
What you put into your body is typically what you will get out of it. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows evidence that the use of antibiotics is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Yet, when you see your doctor for a viral infection he/she prescribes you an anti-bacterial. The more antibiotics that you take over a lifetime, the higher the risk of breast cancer. Why are we being given drugs that we don’t need?
Think about how many antibiotics you’ve taken over the last, let’s say 17 years or so, until now. (Go ahead and take your time, I’ll wait…)
Now, let’s think about the vaccinations, the antibiotics in the animal feed, even the very chemicals that the government puts in your tap water (fluoride for most of us, lead if you’re in Flint Michigan).
The American diet itself is a major cause for concern. We are organic beings. We absorb what we put in and on our bodies. The perfume you just sprayed on your neck was reabsorbed into your blood stream within 26 seconds. Do you even know WHAT exactly was absorbed?
The food producer’s job is to make sure that you buy MORE of their products, and will tell the public what they want to hear in order to make that happen. Cheerios may be gluten free, but they are still over spraying their crops to dangerous levels with Monsanto chemicals that have been banned in just about every other country in the world. The ingredients in Kraft Mac & Cheese are banned in most other countries, yet it is served in our public schools and we pay for it willingly.
So, imagine if you will, a nutrient-deficient diet, leading to chronic illness and over medication. This is what has changed over the last 100 years.
We must stop asking questions like “How much can I lose in a week?” and START asking deeper, bigger questions.
