I don’t read many books on health. A while back, however, I came across The Truth About Cancer and decided to read it. I was interested in it because cancer is one of the top killers in the modern age. More personally, my mom passed away because of cancer. I also have two friends who passed away because of cancer at the young age of 32 and 33.
I’m glad I read the book. Honestly, the content of the book is not what I expected. I expected a positive attitude toward popular cancer treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. But the book is actually against them. It’s eye-opening for me.
You might want to read the complete book yourself, but here are ten key ideas from the book:
1. Cancer is widespread.
Cancer is now one of the top killers in the world. About 40 percent of the general population will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives.
The most common type of cancer for a woman is breast cancer. For a man, it’s prostate cancer.
2. The standard treatments do more harm than good.
The standard treatments for cancer are chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Unfortunately, they often do more harm than good.
Chemotherapy, for instance, has a low success rate. Only about 2 percent of patients survived for more than five years after undergoing chemotheraphy. Chemotherapy is literal poison to the body that harms both bad and good cells.
3. Money is the main reason behind the standard treatments.
If they aren’t effective, then why are those treatments still used widely? The short answer is money. There is a lot of money to be made through them, and the industry just won’t let it go.
4. Beware of the screening movement.
There is now a widespread screening movement that encourages people to do regular checkups for cancer. Unfortunately, the standard screening procedures also do more harm than good. Mammography, for instance, could actually cause cancer.
5. There are better ways for early detection.
If the standard screening procedures are not recommended, then what should we use? Fortunately, there are good alternatives.
For mammography, a good alternative is thermography. For many other types of cancer, a good alternative is a combination of AMAS test and ONCOblot test.
6. “Alternative” treatments are often more effective than the standard ones.
Similar to the case of early detection, there are good alternatives to the standard treatments. Some of them are oxidative therapy, virotherapy, and metabolic theraphy.
7. The best way to handle cancer is to prevent it.
Prevention requires you to adopt a holistic, anticancer lifestyle which includes your mind, body, and spirit.
8. The most important aspect of prevention is nutrition.
Nutrition is the “fuel” that your body uses. That’s why it’s the most important aspect of cancer prevention.
For this, keep in mind that there are only two types of food: cancer-fueling and cancer-fighting. In general, processed food falls under the cancer-fueling category while organic food falls under the cancer-fighting category.
9. Regular exercise is essential.
In addition to nutrition, you need to make sure that you have regular exercise. Exercise causes your body to sweat which helps your body eliminate toxins. An especially good form of exercise is rebounding.
10. Have enough sleep and stay hydrated.
Having enough sleep and staying hydrated reduce your cancer risk.
I hope you find these nuggets of information useful. Stay healthy and live your life to the full!
