“Eat organic food, or as our great grandparents called it…food.”

This is only the second time in two and a half years of blogging that I am writing about health instead of self defense. The fact is the number of Americans that die each year due to violence is infinitesimal compared to how many die from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. What got me on this subject today is that I have yet another relative who has been diagnosed with cancer. When I was a kid people dying of cancer was so rare that they made movies about them (Brian’s song, Bang the drum slowly, etc, etc.)!

So why is cancer so rampant? Is it just something that happens and there is nothing we can do about it? Well…did you know:

-Almost all lunch meat (including those fast food subs and roast beef sandwiches), hot dogs, bacon and other processed meat contain nitrates? Nitrates have been absolutely linked to cancer. We still eat the stuff daily, and worse, feed it to our kids.

-The U.S. uses more sunscreen than any other country in the world. The U.S. also has more skin cancer than any country in the world. Studies show that vitamin D keeps certain cancers away. The best source of vitamin D? The sun we’re told to avoid!

-It seems like high fructose corn syrup is in about every pre packaged food made by man. Google that stuff some day (along with aspartame and flouride) when you’re bored. Our great grand parents didn’t eat that stuff…and that generation had a fraction of the cancers that ours does.

-When you watch those goofy commercials for persciption drugs listen to how many have lymphoma or other cancers as a possible side effect! I’ll take the flippin itchy skin or dry eyes over cancer anyday…duh.

-Women apply deodorant to their armpits (which contain lymph nodes) at least once a day, every day. Do you know that several ingredients in most deodorants are known carcinogens…that you’re rubbing daily at the edge of your breasts? But we accept that breast cancer happens just because. BTW, most shampoos, perfumes, lotions, etc. have known carcinogens in them as well.

-Another breast cancer thought; doctors are taught to handle tumors very gingerly. Two absolute no-no’s are radiation and pressure. Both of these are used in mammograms! Look in to thermography ladies. It involves neither pressure nor radiation and detects problems earlier.

-A slice of chicken breast has the following ingredients: Chicken. The nuggets that fast food and school cafeterias feed our kids instead contain: chicken; modified cornstarch; mono-, tri-, and diglycerides ; chicken broth , modified cornstarch, cornstarch; vegetable shortening; partially hydrogenated corn oil; and citric acid as a preservative, wheat and on any given day the hydrogenated oil could come from soybeans, canola, or cotton. Nuggets also contain several completely synthetic ingredients that ultimately come from a petroleum refinery or chemical plant. Sodium aluminum phosphate, mono-calcium phosphate, sodium acid pyrophosphate, and calcium lactate, “anti-foaming agents” like dimethylpolysiloxene and dimethylpolysiloxene is a suspected carcinogen and an established mutagen, tumorigen, a reproductive effector; it’s also flammable. But perhaps the most alarming ingredient in a nugget is tertiary butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ. TBHQ is a form of butane.

-Most of the conventional fruits and vege’s we eat are irradiated and, as they are growing, drenched with pesticide. Pesticides are found in nearly all tumors when they are removed and studied.

-Almost ninety percent of all corn and soy in the U.S. is GMO. Look up the studies on the tumors and reproductive problems GMO corn and soy are causing in lab animals. Yet we keep eating (and feeding our kids) the cereal and pre-packaged snacks that are made with the stuff.

Evidently the medical and diet advice from the experts is failing us. If what we were told by the system was true would cancer, diabetes, etc. be at epidemic proportions? I challenge you to research and study these things…to think for yourself and not blindly follow what the media, any government agency, doctors or other experts tell you to think. BE SAFE!
