Desperately Seeking Cures for Disease aka A Toxic Food Environment
I have spent the past three years, very aware of the relationship between diet and health...And just spent the past weekend in the midst of a group of people who are very concerned about cancer, some desperately seeking a cure for the disease.
My father died of cancer nearly 6 years ago and my wonderfully vibrant mother-in-law died just before him of Leukemia.
If you are a male living in this country you have a 47% chance of getting cancer...if you are a female, you have a 38% chance. The rates we die from cancer are among the highest in the world and continue to get worse. Massive funding for over 30 years has not done much to find a cure or help prevent this terrible disease (obviously!)
HOWEVER, there has been much scientific research done on diet and health during this same time, which conclusively and consistently reports that a healthy diet and lifestyle can prevent the MAJORITY of cancers in the U.S.
'We' have been desperately raising money to pour into the frantic search for new drugs to alleviate the symptoms of disease. What about addressing and underlining the fundamental causes of illness???
T. Colin Campbell writes, "If nutrition were better understood, and prevention and natural treatments were more accepted in the medical community, we would not be pouring so many toxic, potentially lethal drugs into our bodies at the last stage of disease."
We all want to live a good, long life. We all want to share many birthdays with friends and family...growing old gracefully and peacefully. EAT TO LIVE a happy healthy life and avoid having to chase an unhealthy diet with unhealthy meds.
