"Search for the cure within the cause, the body itself is the best healer"               

Plato C427 -C347 BC






"For much of its history, the cancer war has been fighting the wrong battles, with the wrong weapons, against the wrong enemies. The Secret History of the War on Cancer by Dr. Devra Davis shows, decade by decade, how the campaign has targeted the disease and left off the table the things that cause it—tobacco, alcohol, the workplace, and other environmental hazards. Conceived in explicitly military terms, the effort has focused on defeating an enemy by detecting, treating, and curing disease. Overlooked and suppressed was any consideration of how the world in which we live and work affects whether we get cancer. The result is appalling: over 10 million preventable cancer deaths over the past thirty years. This has been no accident.

According to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Center for Environmental Oncology ( Healthy Choices Lives Newsletter, Spring 2007, Volume 1, Number 4 http://www.environmentalhealthtrust.org/07-spring Myths vs. Facts about Cancer and Environmental Risks), there are many myths about cancer.  One debunked myth in particular highlights the environment as a major factor in the occurrence of cancer. 

Myth:  Most cancers are genetic in nature so there's little we can do to protect ourselves.

Fact:  "The National Cancer Institute reports that only about one in ten cases of breast cancer occur in a woman born with a genetic risk of the disease." 

"In 1964, two senior scientists at the National Cancer Institute, Wilhelm Hueper and W.C. Conway, wrote, 'Cancers of all types and all causes display even under already existing conditions, all the characteristics of an epidemic in slow motion.' The unfolding epidemic was being fueled, they said in 1964, by "increasing contamination of the human environment with chemical and physical carcinogens and with chemicals supporting and potentiating their action." Sandra Steingraber, LIVING DOWNSTREAM; AN ECOLOGIST LOOKS AT CANCER AND THE ENVIRONMENT (New York: Addison-Wesley, 1997, pg. 43)

A scientific article from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggested that more than 75% of cancer is caused by diet and environmental factors.

Illnesses and diseases, including cancer, can be the result of the garbage our bodies collect from microbes (viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites), chemicals ( pesticides, additives, preservatives, contaminants, drugs, personal care products, hair dyes, cleaning products, lawn care products, materials gas off), radiation and electromagnetic fields.  Over the years our collection grows until we reach toxic overload or body burden. Many of the toxins that make up body pollution are carcinogenic. A woman who is pregnant may pass these toxic elements to her developing fetus through the placenta.

"Chemicals have replaced bacteria and viruses as the main threat to  health.  The diseases we are beginning to see as the major causes of death in the latter part of (the 1900's) and into the 21st century are diseases of chemical origin.” 

Dr. Dick Irwin, Toxicologist, Texas A&M University www.lesstoxicguide.ca/index.asp
