1. Every  person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up  in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When  doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in  their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to  detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable  size.

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

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

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

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

6.  Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and  also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,  gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver,  kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer  cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and  organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will  often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and  radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. 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.

10.  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.

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

CANCER  CELLS FEED ON:

a. 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 aminos or sea salt.

b. 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.

c. 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.

d. A  diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts  and a little fruit 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 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).

e. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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 and allows the body's killer  cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. 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.

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

16. 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.

CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL,  USA

1. No  plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in  freezer.

3. No  plastic wrap in microwave. (From Patricia: no 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  cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to  the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in  them as 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.

This  is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your  life.
