Cancercerous cells are prevalent in everybody. A healthy immune system helps ward off the cancerous cells from multiplying and mutating. When the immune system is compromised or is unable to defend against the cancerous cells, then a full on cancer attack develops. Over the past 30 plus years I have heard a tremendous amount about cancer research and fund raisers for cancer research. I estimate that a total of 40 trillion dollars has been raised for cancer research. Each year we all give our hard earned money to charities to help fight cancer. Unfortunately, I believe that most of the money goes into someone's pocket and not into research. The reason why I believe this is because cancer is still a big factor in the mortality rate of Americans. Researchers are looking in the wrong direction when it comes to cancer. The answer to why cancer is so prevalent is right under the researchers noses-- in their food. I strongly believe that one of the biggest contributors to the development of cancer is found in our food supply. You would be amazed at the findings that I have discovered on the chemicals, and agents that are in our food supply that all cause cancer. I get upset and angry at our current situation. It is becoming harder and harder to find good healthy nutrient dense, chemical free food.
When I go to the grocery store, I am amazed at all the hidden cancer producing agents that are in most of the food. When I tell people of my findings, most of the folks think I am crazy or over fixated about these agents found in the food. But as crazy as I may be about this, I am convinced that most of these agents are the number one contributor to poor health, disease and cancer in humans.
In my book "diet EARTH" I have mentioned many of the harmful chemicals that are already in our food supply that contribute to disease and cancer. You will be amazed at what is found in simple salad dressing. I feel that "diet EARTH" is a break through in discussing the problem that we are facing in this country with the natural food supply. I am outraged at the junk we are subjected to. To call that stuff food is ridiculous! There is so much garbage out there that many people eat every day that increases internal fat and they are not even aware of it. Many people who are over fat will never lose the fat because they continue to eat certain foods that contribute to fat storage. Some of these agents are found even in "health foods."
There are foods that actually contribute to breast cancer. This is because these foods increase estrogen levels beyond normal levels. Too much estrogen has been linked to breast cancer. There still needs to be more research in the foods that we are eating. I am concerned about our future. We are not too far away from having to depend solely on process food companies to get all of our food. It is a shame that we are all subjected to harmful chemicals in our food.
I don't know about you, but I can't afford to eat organic food all the time. When I was single I could eat organic food all the time. Now that I have a family and monthly bills, I can't afford to buy all organic food. When it isn't organic the food choices are quite limited. There really isn't much to eat if it isn't organic, because of all the chemicals that are in the non-organic food. It really bothers me to know that I can't go to a convenient store, restaurant, or a grocery store and buy food when I am hungry that is organic and healthy to eat. There is nothing in a convenient store that is good for you. It is 99% junk. The 1% is that is good is the purified water, other than that the rest is junk. When you go to a restaurant, unless you go to a fancy place that serves only organic food which will cost you an arm and a leg, most of the food is cheap, non-organic and filled with chemicals. This is because to make money in the restaurant business you must sell cheap food and lots of it to make a profit.
It appears that the majority of the country doesn't really care about this matter. People will just take medications when they have a health problem. They pay little attention to changing what they eat. So as long as the people don't really care, then there will never be a change. In fact, I believe that most people don't even know or care about the fact that our food supply is mostly processed and chemical ladened. They have been eating it for so long that they don't know any better.
It is even getting to a point where we won't be able to drink a clean glass of water. Even our water supply has been tampered with. Depending where you live in this country will determine how much regulation to the water has been done. Some towns are better than others, but the truth is that most towns all have to put chemicals in the water to regulate it. One guy told me that putting chemicals in the water to regulate the bacteria is healthy and provides healthy water. But I don't care, if it isn't 100% chemical free then it poses a health risk.
The bottom line is that it is becoming harder to find food that doesn't increase the risk of developing disease, cancer, or illness from eating it. Even if the chemically enhanced food doesn't cause illness or cancer, it can contribute to obesity. Obesity is a major problem among Americans. Obesity can result in a heart attack, cancer, or illness. It is all about nutrition. The more our natural food supply gets destroyed the worse our health becomes.
Please keep in mind that not all cancer related illness is directly related to food. There are other factors to be considered; hereditary, genetics, age, etc... But there are many cancers that are related to food that can be stopped if only food companies would remove these cancer producing agents from their products.
