13 Carcinogens that Cause Cancer

What is Cancer?

Cancer cells are parasitic and immortal. They serve no special function in the body and grow to such a large size that they eventually kill their own host.

Cancer: Then and Now

-        Late 1940s: 1/16 incidence of cancer

-        Today: According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will have cancer in industrialized nations.

What Causes Cancer: 13 Groups of Carcinogens

It goes far beyond just cigarettes. Charlotte Gerson, Max Gerson's daughter, has written extensively about the “multiple-hit theory,” which predicts that all cancers result from at least two “hits” to cellular genes. Over time as the “hits” add up and interact, a breaking point is reached and cancerous growth is literally switched on. Charlotte enumerated 49 hits in her book. Here I have compiled that list into 14 groups.

  1. Radiation (atmospheric cosmic rays, x-rays, sunlight's ultraviolet rays, ionizing radiation, microwave oven radiation, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from domestic appliances, nuclear radiation, irradiated foods)
  2. Electromagnetic (chronic electromagnetic field exposure, geopathic stress, overhead power lines, nerve interference fields)
  3. Polluted water (general pollutants, chlorine, fluorine).
  4. Food and digestion (pesticide/herbicide residues, food additives, diet or nutritional deficiencies, consumption of synthetic “frankenfoods,” intestinal toxicity or digestive impairment)
  5. Infections (bacterial and fungal)
  6. Parasites
  7. Polluted environment (industrial toxins, sick building syndrome)
  8. Drugs (tobacco, steady use of prescription or nonprescription drugs, alcohol)
  9. Pharmaceutical medications (hormonal therapies, immune-suppressive drugs)
  10. Emotional (chronic mental stress)
  11. Toxic metals (mercury toxicity, toxic metal syndrome)
  12.  Dental procedures (dental amalgam fillings, dental root canals, dental metals of all types)
  13. Cellular (cellular oxygen deficiency, adverse cellular terrain, oncogenes- cellular genes that change normal cells into cancerous ones, genetic predisposition)
