What causes cancer is less important than what causes cancer to start growing. It is impossible to protect ourselves against all the causes of cancer, but we can make sure we don’t provide it fertile conditions for growth.
Wouldn’t you rather prevent cancer from growing than endure months of chemotherapy, radiation, and possibly surgery?
Any cancer has three stages in its life: Initiation, Promotion, and Progression.
One of America’s top cancer researchers learned how to turn cancer growth “On” and “Off” in 27 years of documented, peer-reviewed, published experiments, but this information has been kept from the public eye. Making this critical information widely known might offend certain powerful industries in this country, it seems. Read on to find out how you can gain access to this potentially life-saving information.
While it is important to avoid as many of the substances and practices that cause our cells to mutate in the “Initiation” phase of cancer, it is impossible to completely prevent these mutations from happening in a few of the billions of cells we are made of.
What is more important is to help our body to do its work in starving and killing off these mutant cells before they begin to spread. Given the right nutrition, physical exercise, and emotional climate, our bodies are very well equipped to handle cancer cells on their own.

Researchers tell us that cancer may occur several times unnoticed during the average lifetime. Most men over the age of forty have been found to have some cancerous cells in their prostate, for example, with no symptoms. These cancer cells may or may not ever become a problem unless they are provided with the factors that promote their growth.
The problem is that most of us can’t successfully avoid all the substances and habits that initiate cancer. To make things worse, we consume a diet that supports the growth of cancers. Looking to medical science to cure, or more often cut out, irradiate, or poison the cancer seems crazy if we are still feeding the cancer cells and providing them an environment that promotes their growth.
Here is a list of what Cancer.gov says causes cancer:
Growing older, tobacco use, (excessive exposure to) sunlight, ionizing radiation, industrial chemicals and food additives, viruses and bacteria, certain hormones, family history, alcohol, poor diet, lack of physical activity, and/or being overweight.
Whew! That’s quite a list, isn’t it? Makes you want to crawl under the bed and never come out.
These are the official causes of cancer, but I believe you should take several of them with a grain of salt. (No, wait! Is salt on the list?!)
There is no time or space to go into all these risk factors here.
There are four points worth noting about them, though.
1) Nearly all of them are avoidable.
2) THE biggest carcinogen in our diet that you will not hear mentioned in official “.gov publications” or those of the American Cancer Society is not on this list.
3) Some of our health care screening procedures may increase your risk of cancer and are often unnecessary, always costly, and sometimes damaging.
4) Medical researchers have discovered a lot more about which nutrients and vitamins can help preventing cancer than they are telling us.
