Medical professionals from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine have unveiled five easy-to-follow guidelines for cancer prevention. Their findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in June 2014. These steps have merit and are great advice for anyone who is looking to prevent cancer, who is struggling with disease or whose immune system is compromised.

Cancer may come on sudden, but it is not some random act. An accumulation of dietary decisions and toxin exposures brings the cells to a compromised state. Learning how to empower the immune system with the right foods can restore cellular health. Learning how to avoid overexposure of certain chemicals, byproducts, fungi, heavy metals, pesticides, hormone disrupters and petroleum products can help prolong quality of life.
Still using Splenda as your sweetener of choice? It is the most versatile and widely used artificial sweetener. However, as is often the case, popularity of a product does not indicate that it is safe.
Over the years since Splenda’s discovery, much research and thousands of consumer complaints have documented Splenda’s danger. Here are the top 10 (and then some more) reasons why Splenda is the wrong choice.
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!
The cure for any disease seems to be quite mythical. We assume that medical research is sincerely searching for a cure for many diseases such as cancer. Yet, to this day, there has never been a drug that has cured anything. In fact, the use of the word cure has drastically declined over the last hundred years. Not only will you never find a cure for disease, you do not even want a cure for disease!
Ask yourself which you prefer: a cure or a healing? Is it better to fight and conquer disease or to support the innate healing of your body? In the vast majority of cases, disease is not a foreign invader. Rather, it is an abnormal response of your own body. Fighting disease is fighting your own body. It is counterproductive to real health.
You do not want a cure. You need healing. Healing is not a mystical concept. It is the natural state of the human body. Your body is designed to heal itself.
It’s no secret that our healthcare system is broken. More and more people are also realizing that ObamaCare is not the solution! It takes more than expanding access to our current broken sick care system. We must let go of these healthcare myths and develop a new healthcare system that is based on building real health and healing!
The American Healthcare system is filled with many inconsistencies. In the last article, we learned about these healthcare myths:
Myth #1: ObamaCare Will Save our Health Care System
Myth #2: Pharmaceutical Drugs Make You Healthy
Myth #3: Vaccination Provides Immunity
Myth #4: Low Fat Diet Foods Help You Lose Weight
Myth #5: Chiropractic Healthcare is Only for Bad Backs and Necks
In this article, we cover five more.
You have been duped by Breast Cancer Awareness Month! You have been told to buy pink to help support the search for a cure for breast cancer. However, many of the ‘pink’ products you purchase actually cause breast cancer! Further, while some of the funds may go to research, this research has done nothing to prevent breast cancer at all. Buying pink only supports the rising rates of breast cancer.
It’s not your fault. Millions of dollars have been spent to entice you spend your money on ‘pink’ products. It is a great marketing plan. You get to feel good about yourself, thinking that you are supporting a good cause. Meanwhile, the corporations behind it rake in billions of profit dollars.
Your skin care lotion is killing you! Did you know that most personal care products from skin care to shampoo and even sun screen contain many cancer-causing, toxic chemicals? They may seem innocent as they moisturize and soften your skin but they are killers! Everything you put on your skin, hair and nails is absorbed into your body. If you skin care contains these chemicals, it is killing you softly. These chemicals are disturbing your hormones, causing you to gain weight and, ultimately, causing cancer.
In the U.S., manufacturers are allowed to use virtually any chemical they want in their skin care and other personal care products. Often, their products are called ‘natural’ but still contain toxic chemicals. Their goal is to generate sales, not to protect your health. As a result, the chemicals they choose may be expedient for them but detrimental to your health and life. So, how can you protect yourself? Ultimately, your health is your responsibility. Rather than trust a product manufacturer, do your own research to make sure that your skin care products are truly safe.

Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments have continually failed us. There is a day coming when the great kingdom of medical science will be humbled. It will not likely come at the hand of God; however, I believe that the writing is already on the wall.
You are probably thinking that a plant is much more likely to be a natural remedy than it is to be a dangerous drug. However, the answer to this question may surprise you. What is the Pacific Yew Plant?
In my last post, I featured a story about Eli Lilly’s drug patent dispute over their blockbuster lung cancer drug, Alimta. When I first read about this story, I have to admit, I was infuriated! It is always upsetting to me to see the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry take advantage of emotionally vulnerable cancer patients, all for huge profits! Now, Lilly is using ‘nutrition’ – not to heal cancer but to prop up their profits.
