Cancer: Myths and Facts

People today are faced with so many distorted facts about cancer and too many just accept what’s on offer. Most will blindly follow authority without stopping and applying a bit of common sense. The following is information on what we are being told and believe to be the truth about cancer as well as facts we’re not being told.Myth 1; People believe that cancer is a result of fate or bad luck, not the result of something they did.
Fact; All cancers no matter where they appear in or on the body are caused by the way we now live. They are all self caused. Many people blame genetics but that’s just an excuse to lay the blame on something beyond their control.Myth 2; Nobody knows what causes cancer or why there is so much of it today.
Fact; Cancer is not evenly distributed around the world, and is only a problem in western developed countries and is rare in undeveloped countries. It has many contributing factors such as our wrong food choices, toxic chemicals and our sedentary lifestyle.Myth 3; Only doctors know how to treat cancer with their 3 treatments of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy .
Facts; While our mainstream medical system is very good at diagnosing cancer there is no question that alternatives or natural treatments are much more effective. Cancer is a degenerative disease and all degenerative diseases can be reversed. It’s never too late to do something about it.


Myth 4; All cancers if detected early can lead to a complete cure of the disease.
Fact; Believing that early detection leads to a cure is a carefully orchestrated deception. Cancer statistics are measured by a five year survival period, which is if you are still alive 5 years after being diagnosed you are statistically a survivor so the earlier they can detect cancer the sooner the clock starts running that measures this 5 year period. That is, it helps their statistics.

Myth 5; Doctors are taught that cancer is a foreign lump and if they can remove it all they have successfully beaten the disease.
Fact; Cancer will develop because of a condition within the body and by just removing the foreign growths, that doesn’t remove the condition that caused these growths to appear. That’s why it will often return as they haven’t removed the reasons why it first grew.

Myth 6; I don’t need to change the food I eat as my doctor told me it has nothing to do with cancer.
Fact; The food you eat everyday is without doubt the most causative factor in the development of cancer. “We are what we eat” and the typical western diet  of processed food and convenience food is not known for its health giving qualities.

Myth 7; Getting sun burnt when we were young is the reason why someone will develop cancer of the skin or a melanoma.
Fact; For something that provides life on this earth the sun has received an enormous amount of bad press lately. Cancer commonly grows in some weak spot and the sun may determine where a growth will develop because of the irritation caused by the sunburn but it’s our appalling diet  that causes it to grow. The sun has many health giving qualities as it provides us with vitamin D which we need.

Myth 8; The only way to stay cancer free is to have regular check ups.
Fact; Regular check ups is a great way to recruit people into the cancer industry, Most cancer checks are highly inaccurate and 20 to 30 percent of mammograms for breast cancer  can produce false positives or false negatives. PSA tests for prostate cancer  are also highly unreliable. Biopsy which is taking a small sample is much more accurate but very invasive. Preventing cancer by learning about its causes and practicing prevention is a much safer option.

Myth 9; The cure for cancer is just around the corner and we will only need to take a pill in the future to overcome the disease.
Fact; Progress with cancer research  is a myth and sustaining hope for the development of a safe and effective drug is pointless. There are only natural ways to completely rid the body of cancer and that is to remove the factors that caused it to grow in the first place and allow the body to heal. It work’s for everyone.

Myth 10; Radiation and chemotherapy  are safe and effective ways to remove cancer.
Fact; Both these treatments are carcinogenic and if someone who has undergone these treatments survives for long enough, they could or will develop independent cancers that are a direct result from those treatments. There are many other problems with these treatments as well.

The safest option to not die of cancer is not to get it in the first place and you do that by practising a little prevention. Cancer has many contributing factors which will weaken the immune system and it’s a weak immune system that will allow cancer cells to become established. The first requirement for anyone that’s been diagnosed with cancer is to strengthen the immune system and you do that by eating the food that’s been designed for human beings.
