Cancer Cells

Received this in my inbox this morning, so sharing here with everyone for your reading pleasure.

> This is an old email but if you have not seen it, this might

> 1. Every person has cancer cells in the body.
> These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests
> until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors
> tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in
> their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are
> unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not
> reached the detectable size.
> 2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10
> times in a person's lifetime.
> 3. When the person's immune system is
> strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented
> from multiplying and forming tumors.
> 4. When a person has cancer it indicates the
> person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could
> be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle
> factors.
> 5. To overcome the multiple nutritional
> deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will
> strengthen the immune system.
> 6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly
> growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing
> healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract
> etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys,
> heart, lungs etc.
> 7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also
> burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
> 8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and
> radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged
> use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more
> tumor destruction.
> 9. When the body has too much toxic burden from
> chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either
> compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to
> various kinds of infections and complications.
> 10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer
> cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to
> destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to
> other sites.
> 11. An effective way to battle cancer is to
> starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it
> needs to multiply.
> a.. Sugar, is a cancer-feeder.
> By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important
> food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like
> Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame
> and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be
> Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.
> Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour.
> Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. ( THE
> b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus,
> especially in the gastro- intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on
> mucus.
> By cutting off milk and substituting with
> unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.
> c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.
> A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to
> eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork.
> Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones
> and parasites, which are all harmful,especially to people
> with cancer.
> d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and
> juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help
> put the body into an alkaline environment.
> About 20% can be from cooked food including
> beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are
> easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15
> minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To
> obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and
> drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean
> sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day.
> Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40
> degrees C).
> e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have
> high caffeine.
> Green tea is a better alternative and has
> cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified
> water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals
> in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
> 12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and
> requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat
> remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to
> more toxic buildup.
> 13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein
> covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees
> more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells
> and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the
> cancer cells.
> 14. Some supplements build up the immune system
> (IP6, Florssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,minerals,
> EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to
> destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are
> known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the
> body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted,
> or unneeded cells.
> 15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body and
> spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the
> cancer warrior be a survivor.
> Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the
> body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have
> a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy
> life.
> 16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated
> environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to
> get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy
> is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
> 1. No plastic containers in micro.
> 2. No water bottles in freezer.
> 3. No plastic wrap in microwave.
> Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its
> newsletters. This info is being circulated at Walter Reed
> Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes
> cancer, especially breast cancer.
> Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of
> our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with
> water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.
> Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program
> Manager at Castle Hospital was on a TV program to explain
> this health hazard.
> He talked about dioxins and how bad they are
> for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in
> the microwave using plastic containers. This especially
> applies to foods that contain fat.
> He said that the combination of fat, high heat,
> and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately
> into the cells of the body.
> Instead, he recommends using glass, such as
> CorningWare, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.
> You get the same results, only without the
> dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and
> soups, etc., should be removed from the container and
> heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you
> don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to
> use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a
> while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from
> the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of
> the reasons.
> Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as
> Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be
> cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high
> heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the
> plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a
> paper towel instead.
