Cancer is Not All in Your Genes! Most Cancer Can be Avoided With a Healthy Lifestyle

Cancer is Not All in Your Genes! Most Cancer Can be Avoided With a Healthy Lifestyle | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it
Cancer ISN'T all in your genes: Up to 90% of cases 'could be wiped out by avoiding triggers caused by our unhealthy lifestyles'
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

Despite what you may be told, the majority of cancer is not caused by your genes or by bad luck. How can that be, if today 1 in 2 males, and 1 in 3 females, will have cancer in their lifetime’s according to WHO? Cancer incidence is far too high to be explained by simple mutations in cell division alone. Research indicates that genetic susceptibility may be likely in from only 2% to 5% of cases.

There are ample studies and research that show lifestyle, diet, environment, and pollution are the major contributors to cancer. The bottom line is that most cancer (and most other chronic degenerative diseases) is caused by the way we live and by man-made products and chemicals, and is therefore preventable if we can get access to the right knowledge.

The knowledge to prevent cancer is not accessible from your medical practitioners, as their focus is on disease rather than health, and their education is lacking in how to be healthy. In fact our medical system lacks even a basic credible definition of health.

Some ‘experts’ like to constantly remind everyone that there is no evidence or clinical research that diet and lifestyle are the answer to cancer prevention or reduction. There is never likely to be any clinical evidence, as no organization will spend the huge sum of money required on such research to conclude that you can prevent or even overcome cancer with self-therapy based on non-patentable interventions as simple as change of habits and non-exposure to chemicals. The US$100 billion cancer industry of today does not want to hear that. There are also other vested interests across the food and chemical industries that don’t want to hear such inconvenient truths.

While the medical industry does the best they can to extend the life of cancer patients based on what they are legally permitted to prescribe (chemotherapy, radiation and surgery) without any intention of trying to cure cancer, there are thousands of people in the world who do cure their own cancer by taking charge of their own health and changing their lifestyle. It is these cancer survivors that we need to learn from.

What You Should Know About Iodine and the Beneficial Role of Iodine in Cancer Prevention.

The absence of iodine in the human body is a promoter of cancer. Iodine is present in many tissues throughout the body.

Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

Previously we would never have thought of taking iodine supplements, as we all had adequate iodine in our normal daily diet. Iodine was in our salt and also in our bread. At that time a single slice of bread provided us with the recommended daily allowance of iodine of 150mcg.

However around 30 years ago the baking industry replaced iodine in bread with bromine in the form of potassium bromate. It is claimed that the reason for this is that bromated flour produces dough that is more elastic and also produces a better result. It is worth noting that subsequent to that the UK in 1990 banned the use of bromated flour, and Canada followed suit in 1994. In the USA it is believed that the FDA has known for a number of years that bromine is a cause of cancer based on studies with animals. Yet they list potassium bromate as a safe additive.

In addition to bread, bromine is commonly used in the following products and materials:

  -  Toothpaste and mouthwash as an antiseptic and astringent.
  -  Hair products and hair dyes.
  -  Various household products as a flame retardant.
  -  Nuts and oils as a preservative.
  -  A fumigate for termites.
  -  Hot tubs and pools as an antibacterial agent.
  -  Many carbonated drinks.

Research indicates many cases of schizophrenia and depression have been attributed to increased levels of bromine. Within the body bromine can act as a neurotoxin affecting memory and learning, altering mood, and has been linked to behavioral changes. It is also known to disrupt the endocrine system enhancing estrogen reception, decreasing progesterone reception, and lowering sex-drive.

You may be wondering why I am focusing on bromine in a discussion about iodine. The answer lies in understanding some basic physiology. There is a group of elements known as halogens, which include iodine, fluorine, bromine and chlorine. At the cellular level the halogen family of elements each bind to the same receptor sites, and therefore compete with space against each other at those specific sites. If we consider for a moment our contemporary lifestyle and environment we can see very clearly that we are all exposed to fluorine, bromine and chlorine on a daily basis, and we have very little exposure to iodine. The result is that our cellular receptor sites for all the halogens are filled with fluorine, bromine and chlorine. Our levels of iodine have significantly diminished.

Let's have a quick look at the other halogens in our daily life. Chlorine is used in our water supply, in swimming pools, and as a whitener and disinfectant in many products. Fluorine is present in our water supply and toothpastes. Now you can begin to understand the exposure we all have to fluorine, bromine and chlorine in our environment.

But where does our iodine come from? Iodine is not manufactured in our body. It is consumed as part of our daily diet. It is a natural micro-nutrient found in the soil and the sea. So to consume iodine it must already exist in our food supply. It is present in seafood and sea vegetables, especially kelp, and also in foods grown in iodine-rich soil as well as animal products where those animals consumed iodine. As the sea and our soils have gradually become polluted and deficient in iodine there is little likelihood that our typical western diet today has sufficient iodine to support our needs and maintain our health.

From 1970 to 1990 a survey in the USA concluded that the level of iodine in the population declined by more than 50%. In the UK and Australia recent surveys found that the general population was indeed iodine deficient. In the early 1900's iodine was added to salt, milk and bread to reduce the incidence of thyroid problems. However today this practice of adding iodine to milk and bread has ceased in most countries. Some countries still add iodine to salt, however most people today have dramatically reduced their use of salt fearing other health problems such as hypertension and elevated blood pressure. The end result is that we have an insufficiency of iodine in our diet and throughout our body.

Jorge D. Flechas, MD is a renowned expert on the subject of iodine. He made it clear in a paper he delivered at a conference in Las Vegas that the absence of iodine in the human body is a promoter of cancer. Iodine is present in many tissues throughout the body. The absence of iodine in breast tissue leads to fibrocystic breast disease (present today in more than 60% of women) which in turn can lead to breast cancer. In the ovaries the absence of iodine leads to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which is a health problem affecting hormone levels, periods, and ovulation in women. Women with PCOS have a higher incidence of ovarian cancer. Insufficient iodine present in the endometrium can lead to endometriosis which can eventually become cancerous.

Women would seem to be affected by lack of iodine more than men. The simple reason is that women have more estrogen. Estrogen is known to inhibit the body's ability to absorb iodine. Today many people in our society are believed to be estrogen-dominant primarily as a result of the estrogens fed to animals and the xeno-estrogens now present in our environment. Therefore estrogen-dominance coupled with a severe lack of iodine in the diet has a compounding detrimental affect on our overall health. In men this combination is considered by some doctors to be the cause of the increased incidence of prostate cancer.

It is important for your own health that you consider discussing this with your own health-professional after you have done some basic research yourself. Unless they are well-informed of some of the latest research (not only by the pharmaceutical companies) most doctors today may not have a clear understanding of the significance and role of iodine in the body. Their views on the topic may only be based on research done in the first half of the 1900's.

The Case of the Incredible Disappearing Cancer Patients

The Case of the Incredible Disappearing Cancer Patients | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it

For chronic diseases, like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, even obesity, and many more, there are no techniques to document “cured patients.” As a result, there are no statistics for “cured patients” of any...

Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

Most medical clinical studies are done to test treatments and the effects of treatments on symptoms. Usually they test one ‘new patented medicine’ against placebos, or against other medicines, to determine which has the most effect on the symptoms of illness.  They do not identify the core cause of each patient’s illness, and as a result, they cannot and are not designed to address the cure. Cures are outside of the limited view of ‘symptoms’ measured by clinical studies.

When a single case of an illness is cured, when someone claims to have cured their illness – it’s called anecdotal. Its significance is ignored, and the cured patient simply ‘disappears’ from any statistics or record keeping.

There are in fact thousands of these anecdotally cured patients in the world today who have managed to cure themselves of many chronic diseases including cancer. But the medical profession has no interest in understanding how they may have cured themselves.

Investigations by some independent researchers into these people typically reveal that it was ‘health’ that cured them. Quite simply the majority of them focused on becoming healthy, which of itself seem to cure many illnesses. Yes it is anecdotal – but it is still very real, and it is happening at an increasing level.

So we need to ask ourselves would we rather be prescribed chemically-based medicines to modify our physiology and influence symptoms without any chance at all of curing anything, or would we rather prescribed a program for health which in many cases (anecdotally) the illnesses are cured.

Food for thought!
