Natural Ways To Avoid Cancer

Some information in the internet says, we all have dormant cancer cells in our body “normally”. There are also conflicting issues that it is only a speculation. Whatever is real, the most important is for us to prevent existence of the disease since it is life damaging.

Humans experiences minor transformations in their DNA that accumulate resulting with a cell multiplying uncontrollably. Certain viruses assist in causing the cells to multiply, then form tumor and they may be benign or may be malignant.


Those malignant tumors are called cancerous and can easily multiply and grow out of control, while benign tumors, although they may cause swelling are not posing to cause alarm if treated early in the proper way.

Our body is provided with an amazing defense system, an anti-virus that continuously guard for good health, the immune system that acts to resist internal attack of harmful bacteria and viruses, however, if the immune system do not get proper nourishment, it becomes weak and can’t work properly resulting in frequent body infection, Illnesses we get from our own recklessness and unhealthy lifestyle.

Much poisoning of the body has been caused by the excessive consume of improper foods, such as meat, dairy products, sugar, white flour, white rice, with the use of liquor, tobacco, coffee, soda and all other chemically processed foods.

Fresh food builds good blood, where as unwholesome food builds a poor quality of blood.

Cancer will not develop where there is a pure blood stream and the body’s immune system is functioning at its optimum.

Our human body anytime may develop cancerous tumor that is caused by unhealthy lifestyle.

Under normal conditions, our body’s immune system can destroy most of these cells before they are able to grow into a tumor. Sometimes the cancer cells are not detected properly by the immune system, or the immune system may not be working properly.

In such cases, the cells do then grow into a tumor. It is not clear how often each human develops such abnormal cells, but it is likely that every human undergoes this process from time to time.

Cervix cancer cells often escape from the immune system and develop into cancer. The immune system can be stimulated by vaccination, which prevents the development of atypical cells by helping the body develop immunity against the virus.

Remember, overall lifestyle is your greatest defense. Nutrition can help to cure cancer if carried together with the complete accessories of a healthy lifestyle. You need exposure to sunlight, enough sleep, a regular exercise, plenty of water, proper diet, clean air and prayer.

Foods high in purine include red meats especially fatty, all internal organ meats such as liver, kidney and gizzard. There are also veggies known to be high in purine. These foods must be minimized to avoid gout attack.

Meat is on top among others so consume meat in moderation. If in case, choose lean meat and remove fat as possible. Try to avoid red meat and choose white meat instead.

Seafood such as shrimps, crabs and lobsters and fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel, tuna, sardines is also high in purine that a gout patient should take in moderation.
