Knowing Your Enemy
In Preventing and Reserving Cancer we stated that Americans are at the center of cancer statistics. The United States leads in all diseases – especially breast cancer, which is the most common cancer among women. In spite of these painful statistics we don’t have to be the person who is diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime. We can be the person who disarms and prevents cancer. Prevention starts with knowing your enemy.
Knowing Your Enemy
Cancer is no longer a disease that is diagnosed rarely and at the end of life. Instead it has become a household word. In spite of this reality we don’t have to be afraid of cancer. Knowing your enemy will provide you with enormous power against it. To prevent, disarm and educate yourself so that you can live a life of prevention requires knowing your enemy. In this case the enemy is the diseases of affluence that are afflicting Americans in an unprecedented degree, specifically the life-threating disease of cancer. The following is a simple summary of some of the most basic facts you must understand to prevent and disarm cancer.
What is Cancer?
World Health Organization (WHO) definition:
Cancer arises from one single cell. The transformation from a normal cell into a tumor cell is a multistage process, typically a progression from a pre-cancerous lesion to malignant tumors. These changes are the result of the interaction between a person’s genetic factors and three categories of external agents, including:
- Physical carcinogens, such as ultraviolet and ionizing radiation;
- Chemical carcinogens, such as asbestos, components of tobacco smoke, aflatoxin (a food contaminant) and arsenic (a drinking water contaminant); and
- Biological carcinogens, such as infections from certain viruses, bacteria or parasites.
WHO, through its cancer research agency, International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), maintains a classification of cancer causing agents.
Health is the Process by which you care for your Human Cell
The human design is made of trillions of cells. Each cell is designed, delegated, commanded with a purpose. Liver cell, skin cell, eye cell, etc. They are healthy, sound, stable cells. They are the basic living unit or building block of the human body. Health is the process by which you assist your human design in protecting and defending the health of your cells.
The basic definition of a free radical: an atom, or a group of atoms that are unstable. Free radicals can break cells and have been known to cause, or to show faster progress of cancer.
Simple understanding of Free Radicals
Free radicals are a threat to the human cell.
Free radicals exist naturally in the human body. They are initiated in a variety of ways. One way is simply by being alive and aging. Vigorous exercise, smoking, toxins, neglecting the twelve laws of simple health, consuming dangerous ingredients in our foods, exposure to chemicals, overexposure to sunlight, dehydration and countless of other factors contribute to free radical formation. Once free radical formation is initiated its progression may cause damage to healthy cell structure and DNA damage.
Free Radicals are Relentless
Free radicals form with out your awareness. While you are shopping for a pair of high heel shoes and going out to lunch with your girlfriends this negative factor is working against you. Understanding free radical formation and the danger it poses to the normal, good, efficient functioning levels of your human design provides you with enough knowledge to put a strategy together to keep them from gaining significant ground against your health. Although we cannot avoid them we can neutralize and deactivate them judiciously and consistently. We are not defenseless against free radical formation.
In addition toxins form alliances with free radicals. Toxins are substances that can cause a poisonous effect. Environmental pollutants and contaminants we ingest or breathe contribute to toxic build up in the bloodstream, which initiates free radical formation. This includes chemicals, molds, mildews and food borne viruses. Toxins are categorized as external and environmental. They initiate disease and immune disorders and deterioration.
Carcinogens are cancer-causing substances ingested and inhaled which initiate cancer and cancer progression.
Cancer initiation cannot be prevented. Cancer cells are present in each person. If the person’s immunity is strong the cancer cells will be seized and kept from multiplying. If the immune system is compromised, over time cancer cells will multiply and become life-threating.
Cancer progression can be prevented. Cancer cells are similar to radical terrorist. They do not obey their original design and just like a radical terrorist they need resources to survive and multiply. In the war on terror America has faced the reality that terrorist cell groups exist among us. They don’t exist on their own however. They have supporters that channel resources and funding for their agenda of destruction. Likewise cancer cells are living organisms who have to eat and stay alive to continue multiplying. They create their own blood vessels and embed themselves into tissue and organs.
What do Cancer Cells need to Survive?
Cancer cells were once healthy cells that became sick cells. The factors that caused them to become sick are the same factors that will sustain them and cause them to survive and metastasize. Ultimately we can simplify the factors down to the neglect and lack of mastery of The Twelve Laws of Simple Health.
- Lack of Nutrition
- Lack of Water
- Lack of Exercise
- Lack of Sleep
- Lack of Rest
- Lack of Cleansing
- Lack of Fasting
- Lack of Reducing Stress
- Lack of Fresh Air
- Lack of Sunlight
- Lack of Emotional Fortitude
- Lack of Spiritual Fortitude
Breasts are made up of a complex network of milk-producing sacs, passageways for carrying milk, supporting tissue, lymph nodes, glands, tiny muscles and fat. Throughout puberty and menopause, the look of the breasts changes as well as the structure and function of the breasts. Breast fat attracts toxins and boosts free radical formation, which over time initiates precancerous cells. These cells can be disarmed and prevented from turning into cancer cells or they can be fertilized into further disease simply by caring or neglecting to care for our human design.
The Experts Agree
Health experts Dr. Bob Arnot author of “Breast Cancer Prevention Diet”, T. Colin Campbell author of “The China Study,” Dr. Don Colbert author of “Toxic Relief” and Harvey Diamond author of “Fit For Life” all agree that the overconsumption of animal-based foods, dangerous fat, chemically compounded foods, excessive sugar, sedentary lifestyle, sleep deprivation, dehydration, underconsumption of plant-based foods and a host of additional factors serve to support cancer cells and their deadly system.
Three Approaches to Cancer Treatment
- Kill the cancer cell (conventional medical treatments)
- Boost the immune system to kill the cancer cell (alternative treatments)
- Rehabilitate the cancer cell, reverse its disease process, stabilize the cell and nurture it back to its original healthy state (The Twelve Laws of Simple Health)
SHM seeks to provide mentorship in mastery of The Twelve Laws of Simple Health.
These facts about cancer should give you a head start on knowing your enemy and assisting you in reclaiming your health and preventing disease.
