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.
- 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)
- Electromagnetic (chronic electromagnetic field exposure, geopathic stress, overhead power lines, nerve interference fields)
- Polluted water (general pollutants, chlorine, fluorine).
- Food and digestion (pesticide/herbicide residues, food additives, diet or nutritional deficiencies, consumption of synthetic “frankenfoods,” intestinal toxicity or digestive impairment)
- Infections (bacterial and fungal)
- Polluted environment (industrial toxins, sick building syndrome)
- Drugs (tobacco, steady use of prescription or nonprescription drugs, alcohol)
- Pharmaceutical medications (hormonal therapies, immune-suppressive drugs)
- Emotional (chronic mental stress)
- Toxic metals (mercury toxicity, toxic metal syndrome)
- Dental procedures (dental amalgam fillings, dental root canals, dental metals of all types)
- Cellular (cellular oxygen deficiency, adverse cellular terrain, oncogenes- cellular genes that change normal cells into cancerous ones, genetic predisposition)
