Cancer - Things You May Not Know - How Our Modern Day Bad Habits May Be Feeding It And How To Stop

by Jerrico_Usher

Have You Ever Wondered What Kinds Of Things You Do Everyday Are Feeding The Cancer Cells (they are in everyone healthy or not) in your body?

This article is the culmination of thousands of hours and a full year of research. I took as much information as I could possibly find from a variety of sources and consolidated it here for your benefit.

These are not being claimed as "facts"- you will need to verify all data found here. Some of them are proven scientifically and medically but I want you to use this as a starting point for your own research and leave it up to you to validate any claims before you adopt them as fact. I think you will find this information entertaining as well as fascinating.

This is for informative value only and the I don't claim to be a doctor or medical professional, nor do I claim the information inherant in this article can be used to treat or cure any ailment. This is for awareness and as a starting point for your research.

Part I: Background

(history, research, and My Passion To Understand Cancer At The Root Sources

This article is broken into two parts. Part I is the history and what lead up to me deciding to write it, and how the information was gathered. This is basically the back story of my mission to research, write, and compile all the data in part II.

Some of you will want to know the back story, others want to get right into the juice of the page- I won't be offended if you skip to part II (honestly if it were me I'd probably skip part I because often I'm not interested in the back story because I'm in a "research" mode and don't have time to get into the niceties of an article- just give me the points.

Part II is the juice, the consolidated and regurgitated data I found via many sources from reading books, magazines, PDF books (online book format), watching countless videos, asking nurses/doctors, and other professionals.

I spent a year researching and developing the information but overall the main gist, the spark struck from the match that lit the fire under my belly- came in the email from John Hopkins a friend showed me- I just elaborated on the points(at first) and supplemented more details and attempted to answer the burning questions the email didn't answer (but eluded to).

This became a quest at some point when I got a reality check that many of the people I came to know and love found out they had cancer! I wanted to both learn how to avoid the same fate, and help them to stop making it worse if remission was at all possible (I don't believe anything is impossible really).

With that Let's get into the introduction and part I (I summarized the intro here if you want to just skip to part II you won't miss anything vital).


How This Article Came To Be

I got an interesting eMail today based on John Hopkins research on cancer.

Now I usually don't read these, especially when they're forwarded (because often they're laced with rumor and innuendo instead of facts).

This one, however, made sense and came from a friend of mine who had a friend who, unfortunately, has cancer.

I became so interested in what I read (fascinated really) that I decided to do my homework and see if these claims have been substantiated.

I come to find that they actually were (but none the less will always take this as information not fact). I want to share this information with you and elaborate on what I read so I hope you find this information useful too.


I invite you to link this article to anyone you think could use this information.
The main points of this article were not consolidated by me (but I did extensive research and elaborated on them all).

These points were part of John Hopkins research someone put into an email and sent out virally (no pun intended). I wrote this as a way to pass this information on but with far more research and informative value added.

<---The opinions in this article are mine (both educated and rewritten/quotes from sources I found information on (to avoid dupe content I never use direct quotes) and the surplus of information is what I found in my research.

My friend and housemate at the time, asked me to consolidate this information into a potent culmination of data that she could use to understand it.

If there was one thing the email instilled in me, it was questions, questions, questions, with no immediate answers (this was the catalyst for my roommate/friend asking me to research it and this article was born).

She knew I was a writer and researched everyday (for a living and my own addiction to understanding anything I don't know about my world). She knew I lived by the philosophy "where is the bottom, and how can I get to it".

She wanted information to use to further her research (What I wrote in this article is consolidated information I found all over the web, in books, magazine articles, and from other people I know who've asked their doctor questions, and the list goes on).

I too have had many friends who fell victim to this merciless dis-ease and I knew a great deal about it from what I'd researched over the years.

I gave her everything I knew and what I found over the next 3 months. What triggered my deepest interest in it personally was when I read in this email that EVERYONE HAS CANCER CELLS IN THEIR BODY!

That was news to me! I read that if we all have cancer cells and the people who are said to "have" cancer (misleading terminology), are those whose immune function isn't properly "keeping them in check".

That's like hearing for the first time that everyone breathes air but some people get sick because the body can't fight the toxins in it (and having thought all air was "pure" and clean)!

I Spent A Year Researching Cancer And Found Some Fascinating Information

I did even deeper research on the topic over the course of a year, even contacting help nurses and cancer treatment centers hoping to get some information and many were helpful.

This is a great way to go, for information, although some hospitals won't help you if your not a member or patient (even if you tell them you have a friend who has cancer- pretty sad that they'd make a policy like that but likely, it's an issue with time availability and patients they can't get to so you may not be a priority- don't take it personal, other hospitals will and can give you some information).

I had friends who were, so they relayed the information to me. You should still take any information you get as just information, as sometimes "opinion" gets in there and isn't always based on (verifiable/substantiated) facts.

The same goes for this article- these statements are not facts, even if they were quoted to me as such, I never just believe something- I do my homework and so should you. My goal here is awareness and giving you plenty of ammunition to start your research (what to look for, ask about, etc...)

I wanted to understand the disease, it's "feeding" sources, and what science has both speculated and confirmed are these sources, to find ways to NOT GET CANCER myself and to help my friends understand that ANYONE can get it, rather proliferate it in their body - rather not let the cells, that are in every human being healthy or not, proliferate to the point of saturation (tumors are millions of cancer cells consolidating and this is very bad). In the end the goal of every human being should be to:

  • Protect The Immune System At All Costs
  • Stay Healthy As That's HOW you protect it
  • The one most people miss: DON'T FEED THE CANCER CELLS

I discovered some amazing insights into the dis-ease

(what does cancer eat? How Are We Feeding It Everyday?

I discovered some amazing insights into the dis-ease and have even taken measures to change the way I do things that may give the cancer cells "food" or "nourishment".

Things like freezing water in water-bottles, using plastic dishes/containers in microwave ovens, plastic wrap, and the like (more below on these).

What I've compiled is strictly my research, opinions, articulations, and findings from John Hopkins research institute including a rewritten (for dupe content protection) email received from that establishment covering some of the things they recommend (including the things mentioned above).

If you or someone you love, has cancer (or especially if you don't and want to avoid it) to ponder over and make your own judgements, validation (research on your own based on the concepts/ideals listed).

I hope this helps you and opens your eyes to the scary world (that if ignored could be a bad thing).

Modern Times Are Creating Food For Cancer Through Ignorance

The modern times have given us marvelous inventions like plastic, technology (microwave ovens?), and other things that have the potential to feed cancer if we're not aware of their mechanisms.

With that, please read this article with an open mind.

I wanted to offer you the same consolidation of ideas I gave my friend, as it helped her a great deal to understand and deal with this hard time.

Part II: The Consolidated and Reported Information On Cancer Information

(and how to help avoid feeding cancer cells)

Welcome to part two. Below I'm going to go right into it. I'm going to give you an overview of what cancer is (based on my research), how everyone already has it but the immune system is protecting you from it's proliferating (replicating) out of control, what things you may be doing that are "feeding" the monster, how you may be giving it the upper hand by not exercising, eating healthy, and more.

Comments are appreciated.

This article was moved from to Wizzley and amassed a lot of comments on the other site. For that reason and for informative purposes, I've duplicated the comments section down to who left the comment, what they said and my responses, at the end of this article just before the actual comments module (and to stimulate leaving comments). If you have any information you'd like to share with my audience or opinions on cancer or about this article I encourage you to share.

Let's get into it:

Everyone "Has" Cancer

- Cancer Is A Cell That Will Always Be There In The Body

Everybody alive and breathing has cancer cells in their body. "Having cancer" is not about "getting" it, its about having those cancer cells already indigenous in your body replicating at a rate that is dangerous.

Cancer cells are formed by crippled cells and free radical (destructive) cells. (a vague explanation)

Not Everything Free Is Good- Not At All

Free Radicals Are Very Bad

I'm going to segment for a moment to interject some fascinating information about free radical cells and cells that have a mission to save them (and save other cells they'd damage):

Antioxidants and one powerful one in particular that sacrifices it's own life to save others:

Free radical cells, for example, are cells missing an electron and that "robs" other cells to get it back.

This robbery goes bad and the cell it takes the electron from is permanently damaged (as if the robber shot it in the heart and ran away with the loot).

An interesting fun fact is that there are cells that act as philanthropists. These cells sacrifice themselves to "save" the "broken" cells (free radicals are broken cells, all cells require 2 electrons to function or they eventually die- ironically a lot like how cancer kills a person!).

It does this by sacrificing it's electrons rendering itself diseased and sentenced to a quick death.

This cell doesn't become a free radical cell because it terminates itself by design. It detaches/releases both of it's electrons (which one or more free radical cells scoop up, this renders them "fixed" and they live in peace with the rest of the body) into the body when a free radical is detected.

Since the cells heart and brain are ejected (a transplant of a sort), the cell dies but served it's purpose. Guess what powerful cell this is (there are a few but only one that I know of specifically)?

Cells With Frontal Lobe (electron?) Damage

- Need A Philantropist Cell To Save Them (and other cells)

Think of these free radical cells (before being fixed) as a person with their frontal lobes damaged.

Brain Missing Frontal Lobe
Human Cerebrum with Section Removed

Like human beings with frontal lobes that are damaged, (they are missing an electron which equates about the same as missing the "rational" part of your brain) and they become irrational.

(this is called "highly reactive" in the free radical world)

Some free radicals are born that way (some cells don't even get a first birthday (relative to a cells calendar) before they become forced-villians.

These cells (free radicals) are the product of a few different things, one being carcinogens entering the body (from air, food, or even water) and acting as chemical knives to name just one.

They can't help themselves, they have but one mission in life and that is to find food- an electron (or more) - to make it whole.

I hate to romanticize it but for illustration purposes, it's like a lost soul looking for the woman/man that will make them whole again.

Anything negative that happens is just collateral damage (as far as the cell is concerned). Before that they can't fathom life without it, desperately looking for the fix it needs- figuratively and literally.

Although the free radical cell is bad because it's nature is to kill (other cells to take their electron not for any actual sadistic purpose- the death of the cell it robs the electron from is an unfortunate side effect of it's purpose), it's intention is simply- survival at any cost. it doesn't seek out to harm other cells because it has a mental disorder!

The good news is that it can be fixed and made whole again without destroying your cells in the process- by introducing, simply, what it's after in the first place- that electron. This can be done easily with anything that contains antioxidants, and especially from eating a lot of berries or vitamin C supplements/oranges etc...

By doing this, to use our frontal lobe metaphor- fixing their frontal lobe (so to speak) reverts an otherwise "bad" cell, back into/or converts it into a normal productive member of cell society.

(just in case you don't know, our frontal lobes are the only thing keeping us "rational" and "human" because they are the rationalizing filters of our brain - the part that makes us human and non violent (to the degree that we can control our own rage, rational states, and so on. It's likely the reason we don't just hunt each other for food!

If your struck or in an accident that damages your frontal lobes sufficiently enough, a peaceful lovable person could turn into a mental case- a monster- that can't control his or her actions. You can find a lot of information online about this if your still curious).

This relates to cancer for one good reason-

Free Radicals destroy perfectly good cells and when enough of them break down, damaging the functions of the body or interrupting organs from doing their job due to illness (if enough cells call in sick or dead- it disrupts organ function and distribution of chemicals and vital body nutrients...). Your body's integrated chemical computer systems start to crash and the immune system can't do it's job effectively- leading to cancer proliferating out of control in a worse case scenario.

When this happens the body loses balance and the immune system can't reach areas where it needs to go to stop cancer cell replication and saturation- this is just one way that cancer wins the fight and eventually the war- but it's one of the major sources.

I'm not sure if cancer cells are there all the time or if they pop in and out (my source says they are always there just in check, like a petri dish of bacteria kept from proliferating out of control by a control bacteria (in this case this "control" is your immune system).

One friend of mine who had beaten cancer says that cancer is the result of cells dividing and becoming damaged with errors due to carcinogens and toxins in the air infiltrating the cells as they divide or like acid causing the divided cell to not properly form.
Interesting (and frightening) huh?

Having cancer doesn't mean you have something in your body that everyone else doesn't have (as I once thought).

Having cancer, in the sense that it's killing you or making you sick, is the OVER ABUNDANCE of cancer cells (Defined by having dangerous levels or a replication of cells l (like cockroaches) to the point where it overwhelms your immune system's ability to control it.

Normally your immune system either inhibits the cells ability to replicate too fast or destroys enough at a time that there is never enough to hurt you.  The way it should be stated is one who "has" cancer simply "has too many cancer cells" or one is "sick FROM cancer".

Testing To See If You "Have" Cancer

Is A Matter Of Cancer Cell Saturation And Concentration (tumors)

The reason they say you have it or don't, are in remission or not, is based on how they test for dangerous levels of cancer concentrations.

If you don't have enough cancer cells present or accumulating or markers found, it doesn't show up as a dangerous condition.

(they can see this too by looking for tumors which are just "communities" of cancer cells living together and sharing a feast- your body).

Metaphor: Air Saturation Of Toxins / Carcinogens

If the air was your body and the spread out molecules (toxins in the air whose molecules are so far apart (not concentrated in one place densely) were cancer, the air would be fine to breathe, but if enough of those toxins, carcinogens (from exhaust etc...), were collectively in the same place you'd start to see smoke, then if enough of them were close enough together breathing it in could harm you or kill you. This is where they measure quality in parts per million.

Different toxins can harm you in less or more density, such as poisons with differing degree of toxic potentiality.

I've always had a phenomenal immune system so it's likely I've been feeding the cells for years and didn't even realize it but not to the degree that my immune system could control the chaos- although I will admit, my immune system isn't what it used to be.

10 years ago I never got a cold, got sick, even the flu while having many around me suffering from all of the above.

Negative Thinking Causes Cancer?

It could due to the stress it causes in your body!

I thought cancer was something caused by negative thinking and I was part right as this causes stress which releases cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body.

I didn't at first, however, have a way to quantify "why" negative thinking could potentially cause cancer!

Don't worry, just thinking or being negative won't give you cancer- unless this is your MO. Your body can recover from a bad day, even a bad week or month- but if you don't want to test fate, you should really stop what your doing.

You should put a lot of thought into how dangerous consistently thinking, feeling, or being negative can be to your health- and anything that endangers your health can deteriorate your immune function.

If your:

  • Eating unhealthy chemical/preservative rich foods
  • Breathing the toxic air in a city laced with unhealthy saturation's of carbon monoxide and other "fumes"
  • Not exercising,
  • Not drinking water
  • Sitting at a desk inside the house all but an hour a day (lacking Vitamin D, not getting enough exercise, socializing (which creates protective chemicals)
  • Trolling forums/sites cyber-bullying people or building up angry mental states


Or anything like these...

Your a candidate for the disease- it's just a matter of time.

If this has been you and your health hasn't reached dangerous levels yet, you can start today and change all of that through awareness and immediate change/action.

Positive thinking actually could help your body fight cancer! Positive thinking helps avoid bad chemicals and often boosts the immune system in many ways including creating high potency chemicals like serotonin (providing your eating right!).

With Most Healthy, Positive, People, Cancer Cells Are In Check

But Being Healthy And Positive Is No Guarentee!

The fact is, even if you exercise daily, are pleasant and positive all the time, eat right, and take vitamins or "protective" neutraceuticals (vitamins that are much more potent than a multivitamin and that are targeted for specific things), you can still get cancer.

What you don't realize can actually kill you.

Eating Right

For example, eating right. You always get your fruits and vegetables- 5+ servings a day. What if those groceries that claim to be fresh and healthy were grown in soil that is vitamin and nutrient deprived?

Food Is Only As Nutritional As The Soil It's Grown in!

This is a reality these days. Farmers can't afford to "re-invigorate" the "used" soil and often don't.

Without the proper nutrients in the soil and the proliferation of pesticides, some even being embedded into the very seeds before planting (in the same way they blend broccoli and cauliflower seeds to produce "brocoliflour") you can eat all the fruits and vegetables you like but it won't give you what you need!

I Get Only Organic Am I Safe?

Even if you get all organic produce and vegetables there's a chance that your food isn't all it could be (a small one really as organic is more expensive BECAUSE the organic farmers take extra steps to assure soil is rich with nutrients, watered with fresh untainted water and even avoid pesticides all together).

The problem is your basing "organic" or "non-organic" on the stores word, and an organization that "may" have actually checked every piece of fruit or vegetable.

What guarantee do you really have that they are truly organic? Unless you grew them yourself, it's possible your buying into a lie, and even if the store bought them based on someone's inspection- they don't inspect every single plant, apple, orange, and the like- they test a small sample of a "crop".

Don't forget that these "inspectors" are human beings and could possibly have been bought off!
You don't think they can't slip something in post inspection grown somewhere else? So many businesses these days are "doing what it takes" to survive and they aren't above cheating- who'll know the difference right?

I'm not trying to be pessimistic here, I actually think more than not the opposite is true- the organic foods are actually organic- I just want you to be aware that most people base their awareness of if something is organic or not, and what organic means- on trust, on the word of the stores sign.

l always look for the stores like whole foods supermarket that actually have inspections done on their food to "certify" organic based on stringent qualifications.

All Things Being Perfect and Honest

There Still Is A Variable To Think About

Even if all the conditions are honest- where the produce is grown may affect it- especially if the very air which no farmer can control, blows some toxins in to rest on your organic groceries.

Let's not be naive about it- it's possible. I'm not saying it's always the reality- but don't fool yourself into trusting that it's always the case. This is one way people get cancer even though they do everything right.

Your only true and useful defense is to do all the right things AND make sure you get tested often.

Most cancers can be caught early and can be treated before they spread, often even if they "form" tumors the tumors, if caught early can be removed thus eliminating the problem.

Being a little paranoid about your health and cancer is not a bad thing (don't over do it but take precautions).

Move to an area where you can actually safely breathe the air if possible, exercise, eat right best you can, and the number one thing to do for sure is DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.

Water not only hydrates the body, it's the one chemical that cannot be cut by anything else (diluted).
It can be dis-banned (cut into oxygen and hydrogen) but it's the one most powerful thing in your body.

You can't live without water for many reasons and one is it's ability to help the immune system.

Water cleans, lubricates, detoxes, and energizes cells including your brain cells, and empowers many systems.

Don't go out and start drinking bottled premium water just yet. This is not the best bet either. Water contains minerals that are VITAL to your health- many bottled water companies over filter their water and remove/strip off the minerals. If you don't get enough of these minerals in your food your in trouble.

Also keep in mind many of the bottling companies actually pull that water form the municipal water supply (the same place your tap water comes from which is already filtered by law).
Take a look at your bottled water, some are blatant in the ingredients list and say "bottled from the "city municipal" although many have no idea what that means!

With most people, the cancer cells are always in check, but with a poor immune system which is caused by things like sugar over indulgence or dioxins and a range of other things cancer cells will eventually have the upper hand.

Those dioxins (comes from microwaving food/drinks in plastic containers or covering food with plastic wrap then microwaving them (the dioxins evaporate and are absorbed by your food/drink.

Freezing water in water bottles (and other liquids) has the same effect but in a different way. That toxic sugar you love so much is literally FOOD for CANCER cells. Human being shouldn't even eat refined sugars, only the sugars in fruits and vegetables- the refined stuff is like feeding your body's cancer cells what they crave more than you do!

The human body doesn't need, and in fact it's toxic to the body, refined sugars. They say sugar is 1000x more addictive than the worst elicit drugs! Don't believe it?

Try to quit "taking it" and see what happens to you. You can get past it, in fact eating a lot of fruit will help the "withdraws". Unfortunately, your body gets used to it, but it's more a mental craving than a physical one and the withdraws are more mental than anything- but that's still hard to overcome! I know I couldn't do it- easily.

Refined sugar is cancers favorite treat next to dioxins. cancer cells see it as cake and ice-cream- a party your not even aware your funding.

Cancer cells can't duplicate if they can't eat, but if they can eat, they massively duplicate.
Think of that movie Gremlins and feeding them after midnight, Gremlins mimic very closely to cancerous activities although they aren't "sweet" before they eat like Gremlins.

The body keeps these Gremlin Cancer Cells so to speak, from eating after midnight thus they are starved and cannot replicate out of control, however neglecting your health, stressing out all the time, smoking, etc are all things that weaken the immune systems ability to make sure the Gremlins don't eat after midnight!

Smoking, by the way, is like adding pure free radicals to your body...

Can an Ant take down an elephant?

How about a million at once?

This is your body vs. cancer.

The reality of "chemotherapy" is akin to nuking a city of which only a hand full of "terrorists" exist to try to save the rest of the USA from terrorism.

It's not only ridiculous but it ends up making things worse (and making people suffer for the last of their days).

I'm sure there are situations where it's valid, such as someone with good enough health despite the saturation of cancer cells- that could recover without damaging too many "good" cells.

But why would you radiate (negative radiation) a body to get rid of cancer if the problem is the weak immune system? Now your weakening the immune system further causing the cancer to get a hold of MORE power..

There are new ways now, by the way, to treat cancer that don't involve damaging the immune system in the process.

Cancer cells are very toxic to the body as they feed on you, eating you alive then reproducing Gremlin cells (so to speak).

Cancer doesn't have to take over your entire body to kill you, it just has to take down your immune system and even benign illnesses like a cold or flu will kill you.

It's a horrid death when you really start to see how powerful something as simple as the common cold is to the body and how much we take our immune system for granted!

In the normal healthy states of the body, cancer cells are kept in check by the body's immune system and thus cannot attack the (healthy) body. If they try, its like the thick elephant skin is to an ant's "bite" and the body gets a red flag to destroy the threat.

They sure try but the immune system picks them off when they attack the body in any way. What cancer does is attacks the body in every way from blood cells, white/t-cells and so on. There are as many "types" of cancer as their are different functions in the body!

How do you get cancer? You'd be surprised!

---- John Hopkins Alert! (what started this article)

This is quoted from an email, unknown author but the information is based on research done at John Hopkins Institute: Very important things to know about cancer:

1. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

2. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

3. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

4. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

5. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

6. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

7. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

What Cancer Cells FEED On: Your Going To Be Shocked


Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's amino's or sea salt.

Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastrointestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.

Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans.

Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily y absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells an d allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, lack of forgiveness and bitterness puts the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

1. No plastic containers in the microwave.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters.

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.

Don't Freeze Your Plastic Bottles (with liquid/water in them)

This Releases Dioxins From The Plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.

You get the same results, only without the dioxin.. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.

Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

The Key To Beating Cancer Before It Can Multiply Out Of Control

... Is Taking Care Of Your Immune System Which Is The Very Reason Cancer Can Beat Us In The First Place

When we don't exercise we don't force enough oxygen into our lungs and ultimately into the blood stream which is like kryptonite to cancer (oxygen kills cancer!)

When we don't eat right we cause cataclysmic problems in our body including overwhelming the body's toxin neutralizing organs the liver, appendix, kidneys, and so forth causing them to spill-over and not filter effectively or at all. These toxins get into the blood stream and mess up the immune system which is like taking down America's military and letting the bad guys roam free to destroy whatever they want ungoverned.

The things we do EVERYDAY that are preventable and based on modern science that are killing us should be stopped such as the saran wrap and Tupperware/plastic containers in the microwave! due to the dioxins!

Lack of education What you don't know CAN kill you/hurt you, the plastic containers in the microwave and the popular freezing water bottles in the summer is proof!

Negative thinking causes stress hormones as well as toxic neuro-peptides to flood the body. The brain generates chemical cocktails for every thought in your head based on your perception of the thoughts meaning. Negative thoughts, depression, anger, etc all generate toxic chemicals/neuro-peptides in the body which can weaken your immune system. Emotions are the end result of those chemicals in your body, emotions are a reaction to the neuro-peptides. Negative thinking can kill you by weakening your body and immune system allowing cancer cells to multiply.

Smoking itself doesn't cause cancer directly but the toxins and carcinogens cause cell mutations that create cancer cells and weaken the immune system making it harder for your body to fight off cancer reproduction. It also floods the body with 1000x the free radicals you'd get in a full day (one cigarette). When cancer cells reproduce to a certain extent they overwhelm the immune systems armies and this can kill you very painfully and slowly.. your literally being eaten alive from the inside.

Feel free to add any links on cancer awareness in the comments box, this is all I have for now. Hope this helps. Pass this info along.

(Guest Hubber/Commenter Made a Great Point)

This segment comes from a commenter on this article:

Good in some ways,but cancer does not actually eat you from the inside out,its a little more complex than that,also its not always caused by the things you have listed,yes all those things do and can cause cancer .

But this is not always the case.

To be very basic,we have a system in our body that when something attacks,the army that is the immune system,has another back up army that actually tells the immune system to get to work.

When people develop cancer that means the back up army is not working it has effectively gone to sleep and so cannot kick the immune system into action.

It likely went to sleep for many of the reasons you say above, it was at first thought that this back up system had died thus causing the immune system to stop working - but it has been discovered that the back up armies are just lying dormant.

There is actually a doctor in Canada that discovered this purely by accident while working on another project.

He found an already known drug used for metabolic disorders in children woke up this dormant army and kicked it back into action fighting the tumour and killing the cancer.

He actually has discovered what could be a very efficient cure fo cancer. He could manafacture this drug cheaply for around a dollar a pop, but he is having a lot of trouble as the huge drug companies do not want to lose there grip on this disease.

Just think how much money they would lose if the chemo and radiation came to an end! Trust me there have been many cures discovered (just look at the books listed on this hub!) but they will never get any further than behind closed doors due to the powerful drug companies blocking mainstream capabilities for a drug that is sold to do it.

The huge drug companies that seem to play a big part in ruling our world will make sure of that,so dont expect an official cure anytime soon.

Anyway the point I was trying to make is,my husband was fit strong and healthy and did none of the above mentioned things that cause cancer, but he got stomach cancer that spread to his esophagus.

He developed this for no other reasons than it was in his genes they determined he would die from this disease. The only cure for him would have been to have his stomach removed way before it developed.

It didnt make the slightest bit of difference that he was the most positive man on the earth, that he ate an organic diet, or that he didnt smoke exercised and was the picture of health.

It was written before he was born and he didnt know ,so could do nothing. Now our 5 children face the dilema of finding out if they to carry the same gene. If they do the only answer is stomach removal while they are still fit.

Yes we should all take responsibility for what we eat and the things we expose ourselves to but sometimes it wouldnt make the slightest difference if its already in your genes.

Very informative. Some truly great information in here. Thank you for posting.

The answer is simple- starve it! Stop microwaving stuff in plastic, quit covering hot foods in plastic, stop freezing water bottles then drinking the infected water (infected with cancer feeding elements), eat healthy, keep your immune system high, take in tons of antioxidants to make that happen... interesting information on the cell wall, do you have research urls I can look at? I'm fascinated with how cells work and this is something I didn't think of!

sherien morsy 5 months ago

it is very helpful knowledge, but I like to say that: the most complicated in cancer cells is that cell doesn't have death signal or receptors on its cell surface which mean if you offer her a good media it will never die.

while normal cell has this receptors and gonna to die at certain time. So the question is HOW TO PUSH CANCER CELL TO DIE !!!!!

Thank you for this. This is the kind of information we need to be hearing...and sharing. I will share this link with friends.

Amazing how even cancer cells can look beautiful under a microscope. Not that that's helpful for those with cancer. I certainly don't mean to sound insensitive. I just find it fascinating. Even ugly things have some kind of beauty in them sometimes I guess.

Thank you Angellite, very insightful. I'm glad you wrote your book, there simply isn't enough "real" information out there.

I am impressed by your desire to understand this subject and the trouble you have gone through to learn more. I am the author of "Every BODY Can Heal" which I wrote following my daughter's recovery from an advanced stage (IIIB) of an aggressive form of ovarian cancer. I wrote it for anyone facing what she was, but who didn't have the knowledge that I do.

This book details the diet used to save her from the cancer, and from the treatments. Many years ago, scientists used to cause cancer to take hold in rats for the purpose of testing the effects of drugs or vitamins. They did this by exposing the rats to radiation (X-rays), starvation, surgery, stress (loud noises, flashing lights, etc), and deficiencies. Notice that these are all of the things conventional medicine does to treat cancer?

They give you multiple cat scans and x-rays, perform surgery, don't allow you to eat for a period of time following surgery, and feed you a below par diet during recovery. Now while it is imperative to see a specialist (oncologist) for treatment in cancer and all serious diseases, and to follow their advice, it is equally important to ensure that you are getting every required nutrient, and phytonutrient necessary to protect you FROM THE TREATMENTS, or you will get the cancer back.

Our bodies were designed to heal us, it is your job to lessen the immune system's burden by eliminating unnatural substances, such as plastic, artificial sweeteners, fake fats, genetically altered foods, and so on, and to supply it with every required nutrient from the most natural source available. Other important considerations are raw foods (when safe to do so), foods with the "antistress factors" and other "healing factors". Good luck with your quest.

Great hub! Very much informative. Thanks for sharing.

I think people listen too much to authority, or give people too much credit such as doctors who may have been a D student in medical school and people think doctors are always the authority- their not!

Part of the problem is ignorance (with cancer proliferation) of what's happening so when they just hear they have cancer they lose hope (which can make things MUCH worse). Knowing how cancer works, what causes it to manifest or multiply the way it does, helps us wrap our head around the very ability to survive it. Knowing that we can fight it regardless of what any doctor told you, is the truth that people need.

I believe you can kill cancer through powerful thinking which boosts the immune system and the mind controls the body, thoughts are the fuel that release the body's chemicals known as neural peptides, which are chains of amino acids, the right chemicals can kill the cancer virus. More awareness needs to spread thats for sure.

Great hub! I meant to comment on this the other day, but was newly released from the hospital. You've touched on some very important information that few know about cancer.

A number of years my husband had colon cancer and wasn't expected to live. He was treated at one of the cancer treatment centers here in the U.S. They spent days with us, teaching us about the link between our diets and cancer. I credit the changes in the way to eat in his survival and beating cancer. One of the things they had him do was eat two Brazilian nuts every day. Another, was to advise us to never ever buy and consume meat from any grocery store, but he could eat meat from an Amish farm, etc. If you are going to eat meat or poultry, make sure it is hormone free.

Having just had breast cancer removed this past week surgically, I was very blessed to be told the cancer had not spread and I would not need chemo. As a former health care lobbyist, and hospital administration staffer -- the medical profession telling me that chemo was a good thing -- would have been a "no go" for me and a battle with my adult daughter who does not question authority. Think long and hard before agreeing to destroying your own body's immune system.

I've sat in meetings on Capitol Hill, etc. chemo is big business, not necessarily the real cure, or the right path for many.

Great Hub and it is nice that you are spreading the word with official facts from John Hopkins. I have read many times that people can beat cancer with a change in their diet. The tumors are actually containing the cancer and are not the cause of the cancer. The cause is exactly what you said above.

Our bodies typically know what is best for us. We get a fever to kill the virus when we are sick. Yet we take medicine to lower the fever. Obviously at a certain point it can become dangerous. But in general I would prefer my body to take care of it.

Chemo is the same thing on a whole new level. I'm not one to study the Bible. But I believe it discusses fasting as the best way to cure our bodies of almost everything. Our bodies are working 24/7 to digest food. But if we give it a break, it will use the time to heal itself. I find that I find info like this well ahead of everyone else then a year later the news or my wife will tell me the same damn thing. But, if I had mentioned it before my wife would think I am being crazy.

I do my best to be healthy, but to be honest we really screwed up our food supply just to make a few extra bucks. Foods like soup made with fresh stock simmered over a stove for hours have been replaced with cans loaded with unhealthy salt, msg, preservatives etc...

I do my best for my family to eat healthy but their just isn't enough time with my wife and I both working. For my grandparents generation one person could stay home while one worked. My grandfather didn't have that much better of a job than me and they had 3 more kids to feed. The cost of living has increased way more than it should have. Now people need to have both parents in the work force. Sorry abut the rant. Here are some of my places to get info.

Very Nice!!! I knew most of this when my former neighbor got cancer and he died. He had chemo and he wanted to go natural and work with the Vitamin C program, but his wife didn't really want to or he didn't I got conflicting reports on that. She has moved out of the area and she never has contacted us since.

I've long been interested in all the various ways we can maintain a body free of cancer, keep it fit and ready to fight off anything offending its balance. So many people do so many things to promote cancer, your so right. Prevention is no doubt the strongest defense against cancer. Great Read!
