Preventing and Reversing Cancer
1 out of 6 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Some health organizations predict 1 out of 8; some predict 1 out 6. The numbers are changing but not for the better. These statistics do not come out of a vacuum. They come from reputable universities and health organizations that study and research the incidence, survival and mortality rate of cancer as well as the trends and cultures.
The following is a list of such organizations.
- World Health Organization (WHO)
- Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA)
- National Cancer Institute (NCI)
- Mayo Clinic
- MD Anderson
- Susan G. Komen
- Center for Disease Control (CDC)
- American Cancer Society
These statistics are global statistics and do not include all other forms of cancer. General cancer statistics predict 1 out of 3 women and 1 out of 2 men will be diagnosed with some sort of cancer in their lifetime. American men and women are in the center of these statistics because the United States leads in all diseases, especially in breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. The WHO estimates that from 2007-2030 all forms of cancer will increase by 45% due to aging populations and various other factors. In the face of these sad and frightening statistics I am here to tell you that you don’t have to be that woman. You don’t have to be the woman that is diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime or any cancer for that matter. You can be the woman who puts a strategy together for prevention and prevents this diagnosis from coming to pass in your lifetime.
If you have already been diagnosed with cancer you can be the woman who not only survives it but also disarms it and keeps it from returning.
If you have a history of breast cancer in your family you don’t have to be the woman who sits idly and passively as though you are defenseless against it. You can educate yourself and put a strategy of prevention to educate you, your family and others. We do not have to be defenseless against breast cancer.
I was the 1 out of 6 woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I was the woman who had a family history of breast cancer.
I was the woman who sat idly and passively as though there was nothing I could do about it.
I was also the woman who came across some life-changing, life-saving information that would lead me to reclaiming my health. I was the woman who became educated and is educating her family and others on the subject of health and wellness, cancer and sickness and disease. You can also be the woman (or man) that prevents a cancer diagnosis in your lifetime.
Prevention starts by acquiring knowledge. Knowledge starts by attending a simple health class. Attending a class will provide you life-saving, life-changing information that will assist you in becoming a critical health thinker. Becoming a CHT will provide you a system for prevention and a starting point that will educate, support, assist and defend you against sickness and disease. You are your own first line of defense against cancer and any other disease. You are your own first health resource.
