There are a bajillion things that cause cancer that you are exposed to every single day. You eat, drink, breath, or otherwise come in contact with hundreds of things that given the right conditions, can turn into cancer.
The important part of that statement is – given the right conditions.
Take for example a recent headline – HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM IN DRINKING WATER CAUSES CANCER IN LAB ANIMALS
Pretty scary stuff, right?
Calm down. Buried deep within the press release was this sentence –
“The lowest doses given to the animals in the study were ten times higher than what humans could consume from the most highly contaminated water sources identified in California.”
10 times more than a human could consume. Of course they’re going to get sick. So you’d better be careful the next time you are about to drink 80 glasses of the most polluted water in California 😉
Lets take a realistic view of the world of cancer.
Now, I’m no doctor, but it certainly seems to me that there are 2 things happening.
We are exposed to more pollutants in the air and water. We are exposed to unnatural chemicals in increasing amounts in all of the packaged foods we eat- and more are being found in the natural food too.
Problem #2 –
Your body is weaker and unable to fight off all this bombardment because you are undernourished.
So we have more offense, but your defense is on the injured list. Doesn’t make for a very good game, does it?
Improving your defense has to be your number one priority. You have to do your best to make sure you are getting all of the nutrients you need, get enough sleep, and get a little exercise every day.
You can’t do that sitting on the couch eating fast food. Besides, I can’t find too much that’s more boring than that. Terrible food, and terrible TV. What a life.
On the other hand, healthy eating may seem overwhelming to you. It’s hard to plan 7-9 servings of fruits and vegetables, 6 oz. of free range red meat twice a week, at least 2 servings of fish, and so on. At least, it’s hard in the beginning when you’re used to hot dogs and macaroni and cheese.
I’m horrified at how much I fed my own daughter that meal when she was young. I am so thankful that she did not develop any health problems because of it. Thankfully, I did include enough fruits and vegetables and vitamin supplements. And we don’t eat that stuff anymore. I haven’t had a hot dog in I can’t tell you how long. But if I’m at a barbeque and there’s hot dogs, I will eat one or two. It won’t kill you when the rest of your diet is in order. Your body is strong enough to fight off the incidental ‘slips’.
But when you continually feed your body foreign chemicals and you don’t give it the foods it needs to fight off the effects, and you don’t get at least a little exercise to keep your body strong, and you don’t get the sleep you need for your body to repair, you are creating the right conditions for serious disease.
Just like those lab rats – your body can only take so much.
And you can ask anyone who knows me how upset I get when I see kids who have all sorts of problems that could be solved just by feeding them a balanced diet.
Don’t wait another day. Start turning it around now.
