(Health Secrets) There was much ado in the mainstream media about the recent study from Johns Hopkins which said that getting cancer is a matter of bad luck – in other words, unlucky gene mutations. Bad luck and the tired old saw about cancer being largely due to genetics? Where do we even begin with such terrible disinformation?
Has mankind somehow gotten more and more unlucky? And if it is “unlucky gene mutations” why is it that people who eat and live a healthy anti-cancer lifestyle are so much luckier than those who don’t?
Cancer was rare a century ago. It has proliferated since then, especially since the 1950’s. So our luck has really taken a turn for the worse since then? And when you think about it, it has (though as is often the case, you make your own luck).
Yes, it is our bad luck that we have introduced all of those toxins into the air we breathe, food we eat and water we drink. And our bad luck that we have depleted the soil of minerals and processed most of the nutrition out of our food while adding in harmful ingredients for the sake of longer shelf life, taste, color and texture. And that bad luck has indeed gotten worse and worse because the increased incidence of cancer tracks exactly with the increased toxins of the industrial age and with the decreased quality and nutrition of our food.
If gene mutations play such a big role, then what is it that causes those gene mutations much more frequently among unhealthy people? Could it be toxins? Of course it is toxins – and that, along with poorly nourished cells and diminished and unbalanced hormones are by far the main causes of cancer, gene mutations or not.
But you know, it won’t do to tell people that eating, living and supplementing wisely will prevent cancer. There is little profit in that – and the cancer industry depends on cancer for hundreds of billions of dollars each year. So, just resign yourself to lady luck and if you do get cancer be sure to keep using the failed but hugely profitable mainstream medicine paradigm of trying to cut out, poison out or burn out the mere symptoms of cancer which destroy your first line of natural defense (the immune system) and which fail to address the true root causes that led to you getting cancer in the first place.
The study authors and their mainstream media lapdogs did report that not all cancer is due to bad luck. In addition to smoking, they identified the sun as a cause of cancer and advised us to not stop slathering on that cancer-causing sunscreen to block the life giving and cancer preventing sun!
Such a study is scientific hogwash!
