Is getting cancer by some poor luck of the draw? Is cancer about bad genetics just because it has occurred in your family? Some expert medical opinions say that the cause of cancer is still unknown. Other expert medical opinions attribute the cause of cancer to 10% genetic, 20% environmental and 70% lifestyle.
Cancer is not an accident waiting to happen. The fact is that people from all over the world and of every ethnicity, that by most accounts is not even genetically related to you, can also suffer from cancer. It is caused by something that is common in our environment and lifestyle choices. So can you prevent cancer?
Cancer is not about you being born with bad genetics but about you making your own bad genetics. You see when cells multiply, the DNA strands will unwind to make a copy and re-zip back into new cells. The DNA strands when unwound are exposed and any damage by environmental pollutants, use of harmful products or food chemicals will result in damaged cells or cells with bad copies.
By the natural order every cell is programmed to self-destruct if they are bad cells so that the problem is eliminated. If a bad cell does not self-destruct then the next step is for the immune system to destroy the cell. So why do bad cells survive and multiply into more bad cells? This is caused by growth hormone called steroids from what we use and consume that can over ride the self-destruct program allowing the bad cells to mutate and grow into tumors. This is how you make your own bad genetics by what you use and consume everyday.
So preventing cancer is about knowing and mastering how to live clean and eat clean. If bad cells do not self-destruct then it is important, to signal the cells using nutrients to return to the original program called apoptosis.
