YOU Have Cancer!
My cancer scare changed my life. I'm grateful for every new, healthy day I have. It has helped me prioritize my life. ~Olivia Newton-John
You have cancer - you have diabetes - you have...
"Almost one in two men and women—approximately 41 percent of the population—will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime" ( American government Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 - see more numbers below). I guess these numbers are much the same in most other countries with similar lifestyle.
Usually we're thinking “it doesn't happen to me", but when it comes to cancer I think most of us know that it is a big chance that just "I" will hear the words “You have cancer”. The good thing is that we can choose to never hear those words if we learn how to prevent diseases.
We were born with a body in perfect health and balance. It is obvious that we must be doing something very wrong as most of us suffer from one or another disease. The Western/American diet is the reason...
If this seems to be a depressive article it is not - if you read it all you will be happy to know that YOU can stay healthy and live a long life filled with joy and energy. You may even reverse diseases. The answer is to learn how to prevent diseases by doing a few changes in your life.
Some more scary numbers! ( From the American government Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010).
- Cancer - Almost one in two men and women—approximately 41 percent of the population—will be hear the words "you have cancer" during their lifetime.
- Cardiovascular disease - 81.1 million Americans—37 percent of the 13 population—have cardiovascular disease. Major risk factors include high levels of blood cholesterol and other lipids, type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), metabolic syndrome, overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, and tobacco use. 16 percent of the U.S. adult population has high total blood cholesterol.
- Hypertension - 74.5 million Americans—34 percent of U.S. adults—have hypertension. Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease. 36 percent of American adults have prehypertension—blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal, but not yet in the hypertension range.
- Diabetes - Nearly 24 million people—almost 11 percent of the population—ages 20 years and older have diabetes. The vast majority of cases are type 2 diabetes, which is heavily influenced by diet and physical activity. About 78 million Americans—35 percent of the U.S. adult population ages 20 years or older—have pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes (also called impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose) means that blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be called diabetes.
Physician error, medication error and adverse events from drugs or surgery kill 225,400 people per year ( Barbara Starfield, M.D., -article in the Journal of the American Medical Association - year 2000)
And all this diseases because of breakfast, lunch, dinner, drugs and wealth! And a Government that protect the industries and not the people. So much suffering and pain could all be prevented if you knew how to prevent diseases.
Does your doctor tell you how to prevent diseases?
To me it’s hard to understand that so incredible many people today suffer from one or another serious disease when we sit on all the knowledge about the benefits of a health lifestyle and how to prevent diseases. We can prevent hearing "you have cancer" - all it takes is a change to a plant-based diet. And it seems that we have more than enough money to get the message out.
Expenditures in the United States on health care surpassed $2.3 trillion in 2008, more than three times the $714 billion spent in 1990, and over eight times the $253 billion spent in 1980. How can this be possible? We have the knowledge, we have money. So WHAT do doctors really do? Do they tell you how to prevent diseases? Should they not work to prevent diseases? Should they not give you advice on how to stay healthy? Do they write prescriptions of healthy diets and exercise or do they just write prescriptions on harmful drugs? They tell you "you have cancer" but they should have told you how to prevent getting cancer. Doctors help people by giving prescriptions to get a certain medicine and by giving surgery - they are afraid to tell you how to stay healthy as they risk loosing their job.
We spend $2.3 trillions on health care (crazy!) but more and more people are overweight or die of diseases than ever!! What If some of the $2.3 trillions had been spent on public information- information about how to prevent diseases. What if some of these trillions had been spent to educate doctors in nutrition so they could work on preventing disease instead of trying to repair and cause even more disease. Something is very wrong.
The benefits of a healthy lifestyle are total health and wellness!
I have just finished reading the China Study by T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. He is one of the giants in the field of nutrition. The China Study is the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever made. The study is based on hardcore scientific research. The science is clear and the results are solid and convincing evidence. Studies and years of research show that if you change your diet to a whole foods plant-based diet you will stay healthy! It reverses advanced heart disease and cancer - and you will never hear words like "you have cancer". It helps obese people lose weight and diabetics get off their medication. Your health is in your hands!
The evidence amassed from researchers around the world shows that the same foods that are good for prevention of cancer is also good for prevention of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cataracts, macular degeneration, Alzheimers, cognitive dysfunction, MS, Osteporosis and other diseases. In one of my other articles about pH balance I had a quote from Robert O. Young (Ph.D., D.Sc). “All sickness and diseases are an expression of over-acidity” ( Ph. D., D.Sc.). And over-acidity is the result of the Western/American diet.
...the basic cause of disease is no longer a mystery. The basic cause is the habits of improper diet, inadequate exercise, negative mental attitudes, and lack of spiritual attainment which combine to produce toxic conditions and malfunction of our bodies. The elimination of the cause of illness is the obvious and only way to healing and health. The elimination of the habits that cause illness is done through the positive approach of developing proper habits that cause health combined with corrective techniques that remove the ill effects of our former incorrect ways." Stanley Burroughs
How to prevent diseases - read the China Study!
Colin Campbell’s advice in the China Study is a whole foods, plant-based diet! "Choose a whole foods, plant-based diet. Minimize refined carbohydrates, added vegetables oils and fish. Avoid meat, poultry, dairy and eggs".
It is not hard to figure out. If we all stopped eating meat, poultry, dairy and eggs it would have an enormous effect on those industries - they simply would have to close down. The industry is more important than your health!
"You have cancer" - prevent hearing those words!
The big question is – now that you know how to prevent diseases, will you change your diet? I am afraid that most people will continue as before. We do not want to hear that our favorite foods are a problem simply because of their nutritional content. Many people continue smoking even if you can read on the package that smoke kills.
But the day your doctor tells you “YOU have cancer” or even worse – “your kid has cancer” Then what? You had the information about how to prevent diseases, or at least you knew it is possible - and could have prevented cancer but you were not willing to do any changes in your life.
He who has a “why” to live can bear with almost any “how.” Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher
Change to a plant-based diet.
If we want to stay healthy and prevent hearing the words "you have cancer" or "you have diabetes" or any other disease it is time to take responsibility for our own health by changing to a more natural and healthy lifestyle.
Important! Never stop any medical treatment unless you discuss it with your doctor or an experienced nutritionist first.
