Neoplasm cells are always being created in the body. It's an ongoing process that has gone on for eons.
So parts of your immune system are designed to seek out and destroy malignant cells.
Cancer causes about 13% of all deaths. According to the ACS, 7.6 million people died from this horrible disease in the world during 2007.
It have been around as long as mankind, but only in the second half of the 20th century did the number of this ugly disease cases explode.
Contributing to this explosion are the excessive amounts of toxins and pollutants we are exposed to, high stress lifestyles that zap the immune system, poor quality junk food that's full of pesticides, irradiated and now genetically modified, pathogens, stress, lights, and just about everything that wasn't here 200 years ago.
All these weaken the immune system, and alter the internal environment in the body to an environment that promotes the growth of disease or tumor.
A malignant tumor begins when more abnormal altered cells grow and divide without respect to normal limit, invade and destroy adjacent tissues, and sometimes spread to other locations in the body.
Constant exposure to tens of thousands of man made chemicals from birth onward, chlorinated and fluoridated water, electromagnetic radiation, pesticides and other toxins, leads to the creation of too many Free Radicals and excessive numbers of cancerous cells.
Alone this would be enough to raise proliferation of genetically altered cells, but combined with an immune system weakened by a diet of refined and over processed food, mineral depleted soils, and too much exposure to artificial light at night, the immune system at some point no longer can keep cancer in check, and it starts to grow in your body.
Stress and the overload of toxins, you end up with a malfunctioning immune system and a body that is not capable of destroying the excessive numbers of altered cells that develop. Some, sooner or later, survive and multiply.
Furthermore, then you get sick. Of course, our diets loaded with sugar and refined carbohydrates don't help. Refined carbohydrates digest so fast they act like sugar, and tumor cells love sugar. They have about 8 times more receptor cells for capturing sugar than healthy cells.
In newly formed cells, Low Levels of Oxygen damage respiration enzymes so that cells cannot produce energy using oxygen. These cells can then turn cancerous.
Oxygen deficiency cause most illness and disease.
Symptoms include: stomach acid, bacterial, viral, parasitic infection, bronchial, chronic hostility, circulation problems. In addition, depression, dizziness, fatigue, irrational behavior, irritation, lowered immunity to colds, flu and infections, memory loss, muscle aches, overall bodily weakness, poor digestion, tumors, deposit build-up.
In short an underlying cause of all diseases is:
There is plenty of research showing that cancer thrives in an acidic, sour environment, and doesn't survive in a normal, more alkaline environment. Malignant cells make your body even more acidic as they produce lactic acid. Consequently, if you have cancer, your pH levels are low and your body is too acidic.
Taking action to make your body more alkaline is vital in the battle against disease.
It is crucial to strengthen the immune system so that it can better fight illness, especially if you are getting medical treatments that wipe out the immune system, and make the body additionally acidic.
Many diseases and tumors originate from a viral infection; this is especially true in animals such as birds, but also in humans, as viruses are responsible for 15% of human cancers worldwide.
Candida or other systemic fungal infections cause or at the very least contribute to the development of malignant tumor. A body wide Candida infection plays havoc on the immune system. Not only does the immune system become overwhelmed and worn out from fighting the infection, but Candida (or other fungus) excretes toxins that further weaken and harm the body.
The major waste product of Candida is acetaldehyde, which produces ethanol. Ethanol can cause excessive fatigue, and reduces strength and stamina. In addition, it destroys enzymes needed for cell energy, and causes the release of free radicals that encourages the aging process.
Ethanol makes it difficult to absorb iron. This reduces one of the most important oxygen supports in the blood (iron), and makes it difficult for your body to oxygenate fully. Furthermore, you know what may happen when your body can’t oxygenate well. Therefore, it may be important to deal with Candida if one wants to successfully recover from cancer.
Milton White, MD., believed that cancer to be a chronic, infectious, fungus disease. He was able to find fungal spores in every sample of cancer tissue, he studied.
Antibiotics also destroy the normal, protective gut bacteria, allowing intestinal yeast and fungi to grow unchecked, resulting in Candida overgrowth. This can lead to immune suppression, symptoms of any autoimmune disease, or even cancer.
Pathogens in water have led to many diseases.
But did you know that what's put in your water to purify it may be causing your cancer (and or heart disease)?
When Chlorine is added to our water, it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination by products), or THMs.
This chlorine by products trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and are highly carcinogenic.
Breast cancer, which now affects one in every eight women in North America, has recently been linked to the accumulation of chlorine compounds in the breast tissue.
A study carried out in Hartford Connecticut, the first of its kind in North America, found that:
"Women with breast cancer have 50% to 60% higher levels of organochlorines (chlorination byproducts) in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer."
It is not just drinking chlorinated water that is the problem.
Up to two thirds of our exposure to chlorine is due to inhalation of steam and skin absorption while showering.
A warm shower opens up the pores of the skin and allows for accelerated absorption of chlorine and other chemicals in water.
The steam we inhale while showering can contain up to 50 times the level of chemicals than tap water due to the fact that chlorine and most other contaminants vaporise much faster and at a lower temperature than water.
Inhalation is a much more harmful means of exposure since the chlorine gas (chloroform) we inhale goes directly into our blood stream.
One of the causes of tumor is excessive free radical damage in your cells that harms your DNA and results in some cells abnormal proliferation which has the potential to progress into malignant.
Every chemical and toxin in your body cause free radical damage. The carcinogenic ones cause even more. Combined with high acidity and low oxygenation, you've got a prescription for cancer.
Another reason we have too much free radical damage and too much diseases are Low Levels Of Enzymes from the processed foods than whole foods, and have fewer nutrients to act as free radical scavengers to help protect you from those free radicals.
On top of this, we are exposed to 70,000 chemicals - 20,000 of which are noted cancer-causing agents. All these cause free radical damage.
The major reason enzymes levels become depleted is that we eat mostly processed, irradiated and cooked food.
The digestive system was designed to process raw food. Raw food, when it is picked ripe, has enzymes in it that help break down that food in the upper stomach where it sits for 30 to 45 minutes.
The enzymes in the food predigest that food. Then in the lower stomach the pancreas excretes more enzymes. When you eat cooked, irradiated and processed foods where the enzymes have been killed, the food does not predigest in the upper stomach. Consequently, when it reaches the lower stomach two things happen. The pancreas must make extra enzymes to try and break down the food.
The pancreas, after decades of overworking, eventually is no longer able to produce an adequate supply of enzymes. As a result, you develop low enzyme levels and your body cannot naturally kill cancerous cells using enzymes.
In addition, food that is not completely digested all too often makes its way into the bloodstream, especially if you have leaky gut syndrome from Candida overgrowth. This partially digested food cannot be absorbed by cells. Consequently, it is treated as a toxin, and the immune system has to get rid of it. This puts an additional strain on the already overworked immune system.
Studies have found that the immune system treats the ingestion of cooked food as a toxic poison, causing a jump in white blood cells in an attempt to get rid of it as fast as possible.
Taking a good quality enzyme supplement with meals, one that has high levels of protease to digest protein, lipase to digest fat, and amylase to digest carbohydrates helps break down food in the upper stomach so that the pancreas doesn’t have to produce extra enzymes. Food is better digested.
Stress is part of our lives but have also an impact on our health. Every day, we hear more and more about the harm it may cause our minds and bodies, from heart disease to anxiety attacks. Now researchers are trying to determine if stress is also a factor in who will develop Invasive tumors.
Stress could be one of the many components in lowering immune systems and therefore making us more susceptible to diseases. But stress might just be one piece of the puzzle — what percentage is the question. I fall back on the fact that regardless of what percentage it might be, it’s a percentage we’re more in control of.
We can’t control genetics, but we can change how we respond to stress.
The more support you give your body, the better you will be at handling any possible side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and the better your body will be at fighting all diseases.
