Cancer Strategy #7: Toxins (Including GMOs & Chlorine) Cause Cancer...
An eminent German oncologist says that cancer is caused by environmental toxins. Others agree. While there are obviously other issues, fungus, viruses, genetics, etc., the major change in the world that could have lead to the explosion of cancer over the last 100 years has been the introduction of tens of thousands of chemicals into the environment. Chemicals that we had never been exposed to before. Ones that our bodies don't know how to handle.
They overwhelm the defenses of your body and cancer develops. Unfortunately, if industry and the government they control have their way, it may even become worse.
Biotech companies have been aggressively promoting the use of genetically modified food. It's a financial goldmine for them. Unfortunately, there are several problems with genetically modified food. Even the scientists at the FDA resisted them till political pressure from the top approved it. Every independent study has shown problems with the eating of genetically modified food. Abnormal cell growth being high on the list. And no wonder.
Jeffrey Smith, author of Seeds of Deception writes on SeedsOfDeception.com:
Foods are not required to be labeled as GM foods.The only way to make sure you are not eating food that has been genetically modified is to eat organic food or food labeled non-gmo. Eating organic food will also reduce the amount of chemicals you are ingesting.
Types of toxins in your body
There are several types of toxic buildups in the body that need to be dealt with when fighting cancer. First there is cellular toxicity caused by the shunting of toxins into cells due to excess acidity in the blood, and the inability to release toxins in the cells for that very same reason.
Next is heavy metal and chemical toxicity coming from years of exposure to highly toxic heavy metals and chemicals. While many come from the environment, silver amalgam fillings, many vaccines and some other drugs put mercury and other toxins into our body. Most large fish have elevated mercury levels. Elevated levels of heavy metals disrupt the immune system, and must be dealt with when fighting cancer.
And then there is the toxic buildup in the colon of undigested foods and hardened fecal matter. Nutrient absorption is disrupted, and toxins sitting in that decaying mess are reabsorbed back into the body. This creates a constant stress on the immune system, and a further load on the body's detoxification systems. Colon cleaning needs to happen on the journey to good health.
The Chlorinated Water and Cancer Connection
Pathogens in water have led to many diseases. But did you know that what's put in your water to purify it may be causing your cancer (and heart disease)?
The French, with their lower cancer rates from consuming OPCs and resveratrol in red wine, have made red wine famous for its health benefits. There is another side to their lower cancer rates that most people don't know...
The French do not drink chlorinated water. They ozonate their water to purify it.
Does this make a difference? Absolutely.
"We are quite convinced... that there is an association between cancer and chlorinated water."
We don't use chlorine because it's safe, we use it because it is cheap. We essentially still pour bleach in our water before we drink it. The long-term effects of chlorinated drinking water are disastrous.
It may cause much heart disease too. Dr. Joseph Price wrote a highly controversial book in the late sixties titled Coronaries/Cholesterol/Chlorine, and concluded that nothing can negate the incontrovertible fact, that the basic cause of arteriosclerosis, heart attacks and stroke, is chlorine.
Dr. Price later headed up a study using chickens as test subjects, where two groups of several hundred birds were observed throughout their span to maturity.
One group was given water with chlorine and the other without. The group raised with chlorine, when autopsied, showed some level of heart or circulatory disease in every specimen, the group without had no incidence of disease. The group without chlorine grew faster, larger and displayed vigorous health.
This study was well received in the poultry industry, and is still used as a reference today. As a result, most large poultry producers use dechlorinated water.
When chlorine is added to our water, it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination byproducts), or THMs. These chlorine byproducts trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and are highly carcinogenic.
Dr. Robert Carlson, a highly respected University of Minnesota researcher, sums it up by claiming, "Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times!"
Breast cancer, which now affects one in every eight women in North America, has recently been linked to the accumulation of chlorine compounds in the breast tissue. A study carried out in Hartford Connecticut, the first of it's kind in North America, found that:
"Women with breast cancer have 50% to 60% higher levels of organochlorines (chlorination byproducts) in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer."
It is not just drinking chlorinated water that is the problem.
Up to two thirds of our exposure to chlorine is due to inhalation of steam and skin absorption while showering. A warm shower opens up the pores of the skin and allows for accelerated absorption of chlorine and other chemicals in water.
The steam we inhale while showering can contain up to 50 times the level of chemicals than tap water due to the fact that chlorine and most other contaminants vaporize much faster and at a lower temperature than water. Inhalation is a much more harmful means of exposure since the chlorine gas (chloroform) we inhale goes directly into our blood stream.
If you take showers using chlorinated water and are dealing with cancer, clearly installing a shower filter to dechlorinate your shower water makes good sense.
Other Toxin Sources
In the process of eliminating as much toxic exposure as possible, you need to limit exposure from the chemicals in your carpets and walls of your home. Unless you've already taken special efforts to have a chemical free house, formaldehyde and many other chemicals have been outgassing toxic fumes in yours for years. Hulda Clark, in her books on fighting cancer and other diseases, recommends that all carpeting be pulled up, paneling and walls taken out and replaced, and so on - if you want to beat cancer. Pretty drastic stuff. A less overwhelming solution would be to get a photo catalysis air cleaner. Using technology developed by NASA, it puts out molecules that interact with VOCs, the chemicals put out by carpets, etc. and changes them into harmless carbon and water molecules.
Personal care items like shampoo, conditioner, or skin lotion often contain ingredients that add to the overburden of chemicals your immune system must get rid of. Try to use as natural and pure personal care items with as few chemical listed in the ingredients as possible to reduce that overload. The less overwhelmed your immune system is, the better it can fight the cancer.
The buildup of toxins in your body reduces cell oxygenation and toxins will damage DNA, causing cell mutation. The key is to protect your cells by making sure you are taking plenty of antioxidants, stop drinking chlorinated water or taking showers in it, and get rid of the buildup of toxins in your body using safe and natural detoxifiers.
There are three types of detoxification to be done, cellular detoxification, intestinal detoxification and a more general body detoxification in which we will include heavy metal detoxification. There is some crossover here, any detoxifier will work in more than one way. And remember, it is very important to alkalinize the body as that must happen before a great deal of detoxification can be done.
Products To Help You Detoxify
Let's start by introducing you to a product that replenishes your body's main cellular detoxifier and anti-oxidant, glutathione.
When you have a build-up of toxins in your body, as you do with cancer - and especially if you have had or are receiving chemotherapy, the glutathione levels in your cells (and liver) become depleted, and toxins build up in your body. This is because glutathione is your body's primary cellular detoxifier and antioxidant. Your liver's too. Depleted levels always occur with chronic ill health situations like cancer.
Glutathione is an amino acid, and thus is available in vitamins. Unfortunately, especially so for something this important, free glutathione as a supplement is not absorbed by your cells. Whether you take it in pill form or via injections, almost none gets into your cells or the liver. For years health practitioners have tried to come up with a way to get glutathione into cells. The only solution available before Glutathione PleoLyposome, was to consume undenatured whey protein like ImmunoPro or RenewPro. The amino acids in this type of whey can be used by the body to make glutathione. However, this process works slowly, and requires that you be able to properly digest the proteins.
Glutathione PleoLyposome has changed all this. I consider it a real breakthrough in cancer therapy - or any other therapy where toxins must be eliminated from the cells, like autism, Parkinson's, MS, and other autoimmune diseases. In it, glutathione has been bonded with a pure high quality essential phospholipid of Omega 3s and Omega 6s in a four to one ratio. That's good in its own right. Because this phospholipid is identical to the composition of your cell walls and blood brain barrier, it is very well absorbed into your cells. This enables the glutathione to be directly carried into your cells with virtually 100% absorption. Using Glutathione PleoLyposome, you can more rapidly and effectively detoxify your cells then you can with any other product.
Glutathione may inhibit the cancer cell killing abilities of vitamin C, selenium, melatonin, curcumin, ellagic acid, vitamin D and vitamin K. These all work by generating reactive oxygen species which are counteracted by glutathione. While it is a great detoxifier, you may want to moderate it's use if you are taking these or similar cancer fighting supplements.
The more you use, the faster the results. There are 12 teaspoons of liquid in a bottle. While you may use one teaspoon a day for normal preventative use, it is recommended that three teaspoons or a quarter of the bottle be used therapeutically for at least four days out of the week, and as much as half a bottle a day can be used in life and death situations.
The next two products will help clean the colon. A colon full of putrefied and rotting food and fecal matter will certainly overload your body with toxins and limit nutrient absorption.
Para Cleanse & Colon Booster
The creator of these two herbal formulas found that they worked together to make a powerful colon cleanser. Not only are they highly effective for getting rid of the junk in the intestinal tract, but some alternative cancer healers say that everyone with cancer has parasites. This makes sense. Any time your immune system is overwhelmed and your body chemistry is off, and it is or you wouldn't have cancer, you're bound to have pathogens of all types residing in the body. Candia, viruses, parasites. Para Cleanse will fight the parasites. You can use it even if you are not sure that you have parasites, won't hurt a thing. And you are most likely to have parasites. This combination will not be as gentle as Max Digestion but will do more cleaning.
If you are already are taking a parasite killer, the combination to get is the Whole Body & Colon Program. The herbs in the Whole Body Program work on detoxifying and supporting detoxification throughout your body. And the Colon Program is even more effective than the Colon Booster as a stand alone product for the colon. (Colon Booster works better with Para Cleanse.)
Oxy E and the AFA Blue Green Algae are potent detoxifiers. Taking large doses right from the start can overload the liver and kidneys, the core of the detoxification system in the body. So start with small amounts of these two products to reduce detoxification side effects. You would be able to increase amounts more quickly if you were taking the following two products.
Supporting the liver and kidneys will help to minimize detoxification side effects and be a significant help in detoxifying your body. The kidneys flush waste toxins from the body. Every muscle, organ, bone and tissue you have depends on the kidneys to keep them free from corrosive salts and chemicals. The liver filters and cleans the blood, breaks down toxic substances, and tries to deal with the overwhelming amount of chemicals and toxins we are exposed to.
Liver Balance Plus, Kidney Rescue and UltraLiver8
Liver Balance Plus and Kidney Rescue are herbal formulas that are designed to work together to support the function of these two organs. (Seasonal Rescue supports both organs too.) If you are embarking on a cancer fighting program which will detoxify your body, taking both the Liver Balance Plus and the Kidney Rescue will help you avoid some of the detoxification symptoms. This would enable you to more rapidly increase the amounts of the cancer fighting supplements you take, and can even help prevent death that sometimes occurs from to rapid killing of the highly toxic cancer cells in people who are in weakened states.
UltraLIver8 focuses on liver support too. It 's main ingredient also happens to be the top medicinal mushroom for fighting cancer, Reishi. Which just happens to be great for the liver. It also makes use of the herbs Triphala and Burdock as the two other major ingredients for liver support. With additional ingredients to enhance assimilation and use. None of the ingredients in UltraLiver8 are used in Liver Balance Plus so these two products form a good combo for liver detoxification support.
For more extensive detoxification, consider some of the following products...
"Magnetic" Clay Detox Bath Kits
These detox kits are called "magnetic" clay because they literally pull toxins out of the body into the bath water. They can be used in foot baths or packs too if someone is not able to get into a bath, or is very weak and must detoxify very slowly.
Tests have shown that these baths are much more effective than standard chelation therapies at pulling heavy metals out of the body. They do a superb job of getting out the metals, chemicals and other toxins that usually are a factor in the development of cancer. (Remember Otto Warburg explained that it was a toxic buildup that led to the low oxidative state in the first place.)
Mercury is particularly dangerous because mercury vapor is more than a thousand times more likely to bind to the oxygen receptors on red blood cells than oxygen is. Each red blood cell has four oxygen receptor sites to grab oxygen and carry it to the cells. If you have much mercury vapor in your body at all, the mercury vapor fills some of those receptor sites, and not as much oxygen can be sent to the cells. And poor cellular oxygenation, leads, as you know, to cancer. Cellular Zeolite, Zeolite Powder and Glutathione are all excellent mercury detoxifiers.
Dental amalgam fillings are over half mercury, and give off mercury vapor constantly. In the Seventies when the price of silver skyrocketed briefly, the percentage of silver in the fillings decreased from about 30% down to about 4% and copper increased from about 4% to about 30%. Copper is not nearly as inert as silver, and releases much more mercury vapor (and toxic copper vapor). Getting rid of the mercury in your body along with the other toxins is of vital importance for cancer prevention and elimination.
Many vaccines contain large amounts of mercury and other toxins. Mercury also greatly disrupts the immune system, and is usually found where there are candida and other fungal infections.
In these detox clay bath kits, different herbs are combined with a special bentonite clay to pull out chemical and metal toxins. Simply mix the clay with the herbal formula into a tub full of moderate temperature water. One bath may rid years of accumulated toxic chemicals and metals, but as you have lived many years, you will need a series of baths.
The clay provides a large negatively charged surface area in proportion to volume. When mixed into a tub of very warm water, the clay opens the pores of the skin and has a magnetic `pulling effect' and draws out many times its weight in positively-charged toxic particles.
The Dental Mercury kit is designed to get rid of mercury.
The Environmental kit is often suggested for cancer. It is designed for pollutants, insecticides, pesticides, vaccination poisons, industrial pollution, chemical warfare, and almost all chemicals including food additives, chlorine, etc. Very helpful in radiation and lead detoxification.
Use the Clear-Out detox kit for a general overall detox. Use this if you are not sure which kit to get.
Smokers or ex-smokers may want to use the Smoker's Cadmium formula which assists in removing toxins found in cigarette smoke (cadmium), tobacco, smoke inhalation, etc. It is effective to release toxic substances found in tobacco such as tar, hexavelant chromium, hydrogen cyanide, nicotine, lead and arsenic. This may help someone stop smoking.
For someone seriously ill, smaller amounts are suggested so a single kit may provide 10 or more baths taken 1 to 3 weeks apart, and the clay dissolving agents may not be needed. The kits are inexpensive as they last a long time and well worth doing. They can be used as a foot bath if a full body bath is not possible.
Heavy Metal Screening Test Kit
Not sure if you have elevated levels of heavy metals? There is now an accurate, inexpensive and easy to use home test that will tell you within a few minutes if you have elevated levels of heavy metals. It won't tell you which ones you have too much of, but it indicates how high the overall levels are. As any and all heavy metals cause free radical damage and mineral mal-absorption, it doesn't really matter which ones you have elevated. You need to reduce their levels if they are elevated.
Using technology that has been around 75 years, this test has been evaluated and proven accurate and reliable by numerous experts, and is even suitable for clinical use. Just be sure not to take any mineral supplements or drink wine the day before the test as that would skew results.
If you have elevated levels, consider taking Bio-Chelat as it works on detoxifying all heavy metals along with one of the clay bath detox kits or Esdifan. You can't detoxify too much and we all have too many toxins in our bodies.
You need to stop putting toxins in your body. Or greatly reduce the number. Excess toxicity is intimately connected with cancer. Here are some products that help you do just that.
5 Elements Shampoos, Conditioner and Scalp Detoxifier
These salon quality shampoos and conditioner detoxify and rejuvenate your hair and scalp. They work so well they are marketed as the Morocco Method for stopping and reversing hair thinning in 30 days. These shampoos and conditioner have no chemicals in them. You will be able to read every name on the ingredient list. They are organic and safe. Using them will eliminate the unhealthy chemicals other shampoos and conditioners put into your scalp. When you are dealing with cancer, the more toxins you can prevent from entering your body, the better off you will be.
With ingredients like clay and algae, they don't look, smell or suds up anything like ordinary shampoos and conditioners. But they work better and are much healthier. If you are dealing with a brain tumor, also consider using their clay based Zen Detox scalp detoxifier. It will pull toxins out of the scalp. and also help with getting rid of radiation treatment side effects.
By the way, these shampoos weren't made by some health nut who just threw a bunch of stuff together. Anthony Morocco cuts the hair of the stars (and other wealthy clients), and before he released his line of products to the public, his clients were the only people using these products. There is nothing better. They are unlike any shampoo or conditioner you have used, they have to be if you're going to have something of superior quality, a step above the rest.
Coral White ToothPaste
Even most natural toothpastes still have ingredients that you really don't want in your body. Fluoride and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate to name a couple of major toxins. That's why I was pleased when I found Coral White. It's main ingredient is coral calcium, and it is chock full of other good for you cavity fighters and teeth whiteners, and doesn't have anything toxic in it. Plus the coral calcium in it has been shown to help remineralize teeth.
