Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Every year around 12 million people learn they have cancer, and the numbers continue to grow. The burning question is WHY?
Cancer has often been referred to as a 'disease', but in actuality it is a survival mechanism. Cancer occurs when the body becomes saturated with toxins from foods, pesticides, chemicals & from unhealthy lifestyle habits. Cancer is a symptom of a highly acidic body where cells are suffocating from a lack of oxygen and nutrients. The cells have to mutate in order to survive in this environment. These cell have to adapt to be able to make energy without the presence of oxygen. Why can't oxygen reach these cells? Because the capillaries are/or connective tissues surrounding the cells are full of harmful toxins that block the entrance of oxygen and nutrients into the cells. Because cancer cells are so nutrient and oxygen deprived, they love sugar, which supplies them with energy.
The food we eat will greatly influence our bodies acid/alkaline levels. The food we eat will also determine the degree of oxygen and nutrients that reach our cells. An important point to remember is that the consumption of Refined grains and sugars feeds cancer cells and tumors.
Avoiding the following foods is of utmost importance to ensure that the body remains in a healthy oxygenated state.
WHITE FLOUR- contains Bleaching chemicals such as azodicarbonamide which you might recall is the “yoga mat” additive. This plastic dough conditioner is used to make bread dough fluffier. According to the CSPI, the chemicals azodicarbonamide break down into after baking are recognized CARCINOGENS. Plus Refined flour causes major spikes in blood sugar, since its fiber content has been removed. (Natural Fiber prevents blood sugar highs). A study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Mile Markers, and Prevention found that regular consumption of refined carbohydrates was linked to a 220 percent increase in breast cancer among women!
Potassium bromate (aka brominated flour): A key bulking ingredient, potassium bromate speeds up the bread-making process and cuts costs for manufacturers—and may be linked to kidney and nervous system disorders and gastrointestinal discomfort. Even worse bromides have been linked to cancer.
