NEW! Beating Cancer Ebook

Beating Cancer E book

Even as far back as the '70s cancer was the second leading cause of death in America. That fact alone, and the fear and dread it instilled in the American public, led then President Nixon to declare war on it.

Today that fear and dread are still with us. But the statistics have gotten worse. Cancer is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 85. It now strikes 1 out of every 2 men, and 1 out of every 3 women.

Children are not exempt from this devastating disease either. It is the leading cause of death of children between the ages of 1 and 14.

But cancer isn't as mysterious as it was in the '70s. No one knew then what caused cancer. But now we know that there are literally hundreds of chemicals which raise the risk of developing cancer, or lead directly to it. These chemicals are known as carcinogens.

Carcinogens are everywhere-in the food you eat, the air you breathe, and the water you drink. The only difference between the '70s and now, with the exception that cancer is the leading cause of death, is that there are now thousands more carcinogenic chemicals in your food and environment.

Don't Panic, Cancer Can Be Beaten

It may seem like a hopeless situation. But you don't have to sit idly by with a 'wait and see' attitude. You can cancer-proof yourself.

President Nixon and the American public of the '70s thought that the answer to cancer was in the laboratory. Medical science and the pharmaceutical companies therefore set out to find a magic elixir-a chemical 'cure-all'-for cancer.

Truth be told, the multinational pharmaceutical companies are yet searching for a chemical cure-all.

There is, however, no 'pill for this ill.' Cancer can be beaten. But not with more synthetic chemicals and concoctions.

The Answer For Cancer Is To Give Your Body What It Needs

The answer to beating cancer-to making your body cancer-proof-is to give your body what it so desperately needs. Along with that, you have to minimize your exposure to as many of the known carcinogenic compounds as possible.

You may be asking yourself, "What does my body need so that I won't get cancer?"

The answer is nutritious food. Notice that I emphasize nutritious.The great proportion of the food eaten by the typical American cannot be called 'nutritious.' It more appropriately fits the category of junk food.

The standard American diet is loaded with tons of bad fats, sugar, harmful chemicals, and sodium. Without a doubt this is SAD (standard American diet.)

Check the following food items in group A. Circle the ones that are a part of your daily diet:

(1) soft drinks (regular/diet soda; fruit juice)
(2) snack foods (potato chips, crackers, pastries, etc.)
(3) low-fat products (mayonnaise, salad dressings, etc.)
(4) non-organic red meat (beef, pork, lamb)
(5)non-organic poultry (chicken, turkey)
(6) pasteurized milk
(7) processed meat (sausage, bacon, salami, etc.)
(8) fast food

Now, circle the items in group B which you eat on a daily basis:

(1) vegetables
(2) fruits
(3) whole grain (whole wheat bread, whole grain pasta, etc.)
(4) beans (kidney, black, pinto, etc.)
(5) nuts and seeds (almonds, walnuts, peanuts, sesame, etc.)
(6) fish (salmon, sardines, tuna, mackerel, etc.)

All of the food items from group A are linked to cancer through either a chemical compound, a process, or preparation.

If you are the average American, you didn't choose too many items from group B. And even if you chose vegetables and fruits, chances are you are not eating enough servings.

Your immune system is the number one defense against invaders like cancer. The only way to nourish it so that it can perform its job is through healthy nutrition.

Deprive Cancer of What It Loves

Did you know that your diet promotes an atmosphere in which cancer thrives? It's true. The standard American diet is full of foods which literally feed cancer.

What are some of the things which promote cancer? Sugar is one. And it doesn't matter if its ordinary table sugar or artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet or Equal, Sweet 'N Low, or high fructose corn syrup.

Sugar is addictive and it stimulates hunger. Americans eat far too much of it. Beating Cancer shows you why sweeteners are cancer friendly, and what you can do about it.

Animal studies have linked the following artificial sweeteners to cancer:

  • aspartame
  • saccharin
  • sucralose
  • sugar
  • But savvy food manufacturers have disguised sugar under a number of seemingly harmless names. You have to be equally savvy to recognize them on food labels. I'll tell you how to avoid this trap in Beating Cancer.

    Health Promoting Food Substitutions

    I know what you're thinking right about now. You think that you have to give up all the foods and beverages you love. Don't think about it that way. Instead of giving up, you are going to substitute for.

    For instance, you are going to substitute organic, free-range meat for sick and toxic factory-farmed meat. For obesity-promoting sodas and fruit juices/drinks you will substitute 100 percent fruit juice and filtered water. You will substitute a natural sweetener such as stevia for sugar and artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet and Sweet 'N Low.

    How You Prepare Your Meat Has An Impact On Carcinogenic Compounds

    Did you know that high-temperature cooking such as frying and barbecuing produces cancer-causing compounds? Beating Cancer gives you detailed instructions on what to do in order to minimize or eliminate these carcinogens.

    Do I Have to Give Up the Foods I Love?

    I know what you're asking yourself right about now. You're asking yourself if you have to give up the foods you love. My answer is to not look at it as giving up but rather as substituting for.

    You will be substituting 100 percent fruit juices and filtered water for sodas and fruit drinks/juices. Instead of eating sick, factory-farmed red meat and poultry you will substitute organic, free-ranged meat and poultry. And instead of using sugar and artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet and Sweet 'N Low, you will substitute the natural sweetener stevia.

    Unlikely Products Linked to Cancer Risk

    What if you sold a product and knew from numerous studies that it led to cancer in laboratory animals? Would you go public with that information? Be honest. This product is bringing in a lot of profits.

    This is actually going on right now. There are manufacturers who are aware that their products are linked to cancer. But they are remaining silent about it so as not to hurt their sales.

    Beating Cancer reveals food and non-foods that you probably use that are linked to cancer. Did you know that the cell phone is strongly linked to brain cancer? The manufacturers are keeping 'mum' about it.

    As a matter of fact, the cell phone industry did a study on cell phones when they were first introduced. The study revealed a link to cancer. That study was promptly shelved.

    By the way, young children are much more at risk for future brain cancer than adults are. I will tell you what you have to do to lessen the risk for both you and your child.

    Beating Cancer will also reveal the cancer dangers of the microwave oven, sunscreens, and other common products.
