Diet And Cancer. http://www.CancerUncensored.com.
Welcome to today's issue of cancer uncensored. Hi, I'm Chris, and I am the author of cancer uncensored, a step-by-step guide to cancer prevention, early detection and cancer survival.
In today's video,I would like to give you an overview of cancer. I'm going to briefly talk about exactly what cancer is, what causes it, what symptoms there are, how you can avoid it. We will also cover current treatment methods and alternative medicine. I'll also let you know where you should go to obtain the most up-to-date news and breakthroughs.
Before we get stuck in, I ought to address two points:
Firstly, most people are terrified of cancer. I can fully understand that, as my wife has recently been diagnosed with cancer, but as a society, we mustn't let the fear of the disease stop us from taking steps to understand it, because that way we can actively prevent it.
One in three of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our lifetimes, and yet 85% of cancer is avoidable! This video, and my book, cancer uncensored, can tell you how. So take in as much of this data as you can, because it could save your life.
Secondly, you must understand that cancer isn't entirely understood. We have a number of very solid theories, and a lot of study data, but if cancer was fully understood, we might be closer to a cure.
As Thomas Edison once said, "The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition."
But as things stand at the moment, there are considerable vested interests in the medical and pharmaceutical industries which do not help to facilitate true impartial research. Cancer represents a three quarters of a trillion dollar, or 1 / 2 a trillion pound, per year industry worldwide. For the cancer establishment, if you have cancer you're worth more than a quarter of a million dollars or £150,000, but if you happen to be in good health, then you are not even a customer.
Just consider that for a short while...
So, while you will feel that your doctor has your interests at heart, the industry sector as a whole possibly does not.
The fact is, doctors in the Western world are obliged by law to advocate surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy as treatments exclusively, and will not even talk about the most basic of things, like lifestyle and diet, that may possibly have triggered the cancer in the first place! Not to mention talk about alternative medicine that actually has a reasonable track record.
Therefore you really need to get educated fast.
So, what exactly is cancer?
Basically, cancer is when cells in your body, which may be in any tissue or organ, malfunction by dividing excessively and invading bordering tissues. You have literally hundreds of thousands of cancer cells in your body at any one moment in time, even right now! But normally, when your immune system detects them, it eradicates them. If your immune system cannot destroy them swiftly enough, or doesn't function correctly, then a gathering of cells, called a tumour can grow. As the tumour establishes its own blood supply, it grows, and it can then spread to other parts of your body - but there are steps you can take at each stage to slow this process down.
The signs and symptoms vary, depending on what form of cancer you have. But a general list of symptoms may include a lump just about anywhere in your body, e.g. in your breast or testicle. A change in a skin mole. A sore that won't heal. A persistent cough or hoarseness. Persistent indigestion or problems swallowing. Coughing up or vomiting blood. Changes in usual bowel habits, for instance persistent diarrhoea or constipation. Any blood in the urine or bowel motions and any abnormal vaginal bleeding. Finally, unexplained loss of weight or an unexplained lack of appetite.
In theory, cancer can be initiated by three things.
1) If your body does not possess the basic materials to function correctly, like vitamins, minerals, oils and plant compounds.
2) When you're exposed to harmful environmental factors, like pesticides, cigarrette smoke, radon gas, electromagnetic fields,
3) Due to genetics. However genetic factors account for less than 10 Percent of cancer, and even then, studies show that diet can triumph over a predisposition.
Thankfully, we know of lots of different foods that kill cancer cells, and plenty of foods that have been shown in studies to reduce the likelihood of you getting it to begin with. Prevention is key, however these foods will also help support your body if you have already been diagnosed.
This video is far too brief to list all of them, however, if you visit http://www.canceruncensored.com you can discover more. In short,adding cruciferous and leafy green vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds and flaxseed oil to your diet can create a huge difference.
