These new recommendations will allow for the continued destruction of health for the average American. Unfortunately, most people will never even realize this because the media headlines incorrectly reported that the FDA will phase out some antibiotic use.

Cancer is not a curse – it is a lifestyle! You may have certain genetic risk factors for cancer, however, it is your lifestyle that activates those genes and allows cancer to develop. In fact, cancer develops over many years as a result of the combined effect of daily lifestyle choices. New research, reported in the New York Times Health blog, adds further evidence that sugar consumption – especially sugary drinks fuels the growth of cancer.
Few words have the ability to strike such fear into one’s heart as the words: “You have cancer.” In our society, cancer is viewed as a raging enemy that is stalking us, preparing to pounce when we are most unaware. However, this is simply an inaccurate view of this disease.
The truth is that cancer is not a curse that strikes randomly. It follows a very specific pattern. It actually develops when it is most expected to. It is not the result of a random curse but rather, it is the result of a specific lifestyle. The good news about this is that you can literally choose to live a cancer-proof lifestyle. You can beat the odds of cancer!
