How to prevent cancer

By HappySkinnyGirl

Don’t wait until you get sick until you do something about it.

What do you know about cancer?

Most of us probably don’t know much about it unless you’re sick or know someone who has cancer. We may associate cancer with the sun, smoking, and drinking habits. We read in the news that eating certain types of veggies and fruits will help prevent cancer and other diseases. All of this comes down to having a very good immune system. Such habits as drinking and smoking lower the immune system immensely.

How to boost your immune system

Stop thinking about food as just something delicious and start to understand that food is much more important than that. Fruits and veggies contains lots of anti oxidants which are good for your body. It help you to heal and repair damages, and fighting other bad cells. Some countries use a lot of herbs that are proven to be immune boosting. Herbs can protect and stop healthy cells to develop into cancer cells. Some of the powerful herbs are galangal root, lemongrass, cilantro, ginger, garlic, onions.

What can you do more?

There are other habits to prevent cancer. Some tips from healthmiracles.net:

  • Throw out your microwave
  • Stop wearing underwire bras

It may sound far fetched, but read this article habits to prevent cancer to understand it better. Of course, there are always research and studies that prove the microwave is harmless. Anyway, it doesn’t feel natural to use a microwave to prepare or heat the food and you really don’t need to use it either. Plus, some expert says heating/cooking your food in a microwave will decrease the nutrition value more.

Underwire bras can cut or prevent blood to flow nicely throughout your breast tissue. This makes me wonder why people in some country are more prone to breast cancer.

And last, don’t forget to exercise. Keep fit and healthy by getting some fresh air and going out for a walk daily.

This should not be about worrying or fear of getting cancer, but taking some control of your health and habits in order to stay healthy and minimize the chance of getting a disease.

    Jess,
    Your post is very timely. I just saw a TV segment on Good Morning Ameirca today on how diet, exercise and controlling stress cured 90% of cancer cells in a Colorado man and many such cases are under review.

    The doctors name is Dean Ornish. Google him to find out more.

    A few other tips for preventing cancer:

    1. Get more sunlight – Believe it or not, lack of vitamin D is causing a lot of cancer.

    2. Fix your Omega ratio – Omega 3’s help prevent and cure cancer.

    3. Make sure diet is alkaline – Caner thrives on acidity.

    4. Do not use antiperspirant – not only is it toxic, but blocking your pores here causes breast cancer.

    eliminate refined sugar – Sugar feeds cancer
