Cancer Requires More than Standing or Walking for the Cure

By 2050, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has projected that one of every two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer. Studies show that one in eight U.S. women will have invasive breast cancer at some point during their lives. In 2016, it’s estimated that more than 300,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed.
These statistics are harsh, and more than 85 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer have had no family history of it, which begs the question: What are we doing?
Year after year, major walking events for the cure are conducted, and now a TV event is standing for the cure. While I love the increased awareness these events bring, such attention alone has not changed the war on cancer. Over the past six years, the NCI alone has funded $4.9 billion each year on average. In fact, we have more money funded and more awareness with an increase in incidence and mortality of cancers. America is losing the war on cancer.
The reality is that our body destroys cancer every day, and specifically our immune system seeks out genetic mutations and either corrects them or kills the cell that would have been a cancer. While everyone is focused on the craze for a cure, the person in the mirror is a cancer survivor every day. Therefore, when cancer develops in the body, the question shouldn’t be, “Where is the cure?” It should be, “Where is the cause?”
Look in a mirror and ask if your lifestyle is conducive to building cancer or destroying it. The body is either moving towards a beautiful landscape or a smelly landfill, and our lifestyle determines the scenery. Some factors to consider: nutrition, vitamin D levels, absence of preservatives/chemicals, lack of exercise, hours of sleep and the health of your nervous system to name a few.
Most cancers feed primarily on sugar, and many preservatives and dyes have been linked to cancers. There are many studies that point to vitamin D levels as preventing and even treating cancers. Sleep is when the body heals the most, and quality exercise increases the efficiency of the body to utilize oxygen. A spine in alignment helps your nervous system function and heal better and improves your body’s ability to fight cancer. The person in the mirror controls all these factors, not the government or genetics.
Cancer will always be easier to prevent than to beat once diagnosed. So the question remains, “Will you stop at just standing or walking for cancer, or will you change your paradigm and take control what lies within your power?”
