Cancer causing factors

Cancer causing factors

Information sourced and compiled by Robert Gourlay 

Cancer is not bad luck it is a choice by an individual or a parent/guardian that exposes body cells to cancer causing agents. Cancer has little do with genes. There will be no single cause of the cancer: it will be multiple factors that low immunity or cellular response (regulation and healing) to a change in cellular conditions. 

Cancer is increasing at a rapid pace in society due to a decline in human and environmental health or wellbeing.

Below is a list of factors that can contribute to cancer.  The pathway to cancer in a body is opened up through the following primary factors or pathways:

  • Chronic blood acidity (blood cells need to be alkaline)
  • Chronic oxygen deprivation (all cells require high oxygen saturation)
  • Elevated cellular toxicity from exposure to chemicals and radiation
  • Low nutrient density in food
  • A chronic imbalance in gut biology (the source of most diseases)
  • Lose of negative voltage at a cellular level (cells require a negative voltage in the range of -50mV to -70mV, and cellular voltage at -35mV is potentially serious for human health)

The above factors are exacerbated by the following specific factors that include poor diet, environmental exposure to chemicals/toxins, lifestyle influences, etc: 

  • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
  • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
    chloride, and acrolein that is prevalent in the air of most cities, and includes the toxic elements such as lead, cadmium and arsenic.
  • Genetically modified (GM) food
  • Rancid peanuts and seeds
  • Vegetable oils such as Canola oil
  • Caned, processed vegetables and fruit, eg. tomatoes that are often grown as GM food and using chemical sprays and preservatives in the processing
  • All food grown with weed killers, pesticides/insecticides
  • Drug/medication addiction
  • Most laundry detergents that are not organically based or chemical free
  • Commercial (non-organic) hair dyes and shampoos (and other personal care products including aluminum in under-arm deodorants)
  • Granite countertops (which emit radon) or living in rammed earth houses that contain either granite clays or rock.
  • Chemicals from aerosol cans
  • Mammograms and X-Rays
  • All microwaved (irradiated) food and especially food microwaved in plastic containers (including plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
  • Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

Cancer prevention requires a lifestyle that eliminates all of the above factors.   This includes:

  • Growing your own food in biological and mineral dense soil
  • Include a wide range of so called super (ie. nutrient dense) foods in the diet.
  • Drinking negative voltage water (free of fluoridation, chlorine, caustic soda and aluminium that are often used in water treatment
  • Maintaining regular contact with nature (eg. beach, rainforest, etc.)
  • Avoiding fast/ processed foods
  • Avoiding medications and using alternative health treatments
  • Regular exercise
  • Slow food cooking, particularly meat (eg. bone, bone marrow and bone muscle for collagen)
  • Avoiding stress and maintaining a balance between work and recreation/leisure
