WAR on Cancer Isn’t Working

Someone posted this on Facebook this morning.  I’ve seen it going around and want to address why this approach isn’t working.

We have bumper stickers that tell us to be AWARE of cancer and to “Save the Ta-Ta’s”.  We have pink packaging on food.  We are asked to run marathons FOR cancer research. We have woman REMOVING Their breasts because they MIGHT get cancer.

Our cancer rates are off the charts, along with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, birth defects, learning disorders, depression…..

But guess what?  ALL of these conditions are caused by poor nutrition.  Malnourishment.  Americans have severely compromised immune systems due to low quality food intake.

The problem is that most people have no idea what a healthy diet is!

Common myths;

  • Low fat is healthy.
  • Red Meat is bad for you.
  • Grains, especially whole grains, are good for you.
  • Caloric restrictions works to aid in weight loss.
  • Fat makes you fat.
  • Cereal is a decent, even healthy, breakfast.
  • It’s healthy to cook with olive oil.
  • Vegetarianism is healthy and better for the planet.

Our cancer rates began to rise in the early 1960’s due to the fact that Americans had at that point continued to eat the alternative fats we were asked to use while we were were rationing food during World War 2.  Combined with the proliferation of processed foods, instant foods, eating out more often, woman beginning to work outside the house, TV becoming what we do most of the time…I could go on but you get the point.  We do not eat the diet we are meant to eat; plenty of healthy organic fats (remember they ALL used to be organic along with everything else we ate), high quality protein and mostly green leafy veggies and other low glycemic foods.

Cancer is treatable, even curable, when we repair the immune system.  That can only occur with the right nutrients, nourishing and repairing the body.  Cancer is preventable by keeping our immune system intact and that only occurs with enough of the healthy saturated fats and organic grass fed proteins our bodies need so badly.
