You may well be aware that in February, Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer. Jolie had been told that due to her genetics, she had an 87% chance of contracting breast cancer.

Jolie has been praised by Cancer Doctors for a her brave act and for setting a good example to other women.

I’m not one to rant, but are you kidding me???

Firstly, for any gene to express itself, it requires to be triggered by it’s environment. That’s how genes work. So if Jolie lived a healthy lifestyle, her chances of cancer would be minimal. After all, cancer was extremely rare prior to the beginning of the 1900’s. If it was a genetic disease, then it would have been prevalent in the 1700 and 1800’s, but it wasn’t!!!

Cancer has become a big problem since the introduction of poor quality, toxic, mass produced food and an enormous introduction of toxins into our environment.

If you stand back for just a second and look at the medical ‘advances’ since they began ‘experimenting’ with pharmaceuticals to kill cancer cells for over 100 years, the truth is that is has FAILED!!!!

The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy and/or surgery fails in the majority of cases. All cancer statistics are gathered over a 5 year period after treatment. So if someone dies after 6 years, that were considered a total success. Official statistics make it look like medical approaches are advancing, but the truth is that more people are contracting and dying of cancer than ever before.

If you understand that cancer has direct links to toxins, sugar consumption, low enzyme levels, emotional stress and weakened immune system, then if you avoid these things, you hugely reduce your chances of your cancer genes from being expressed. We all have cancer cells. The question is whether our immune system is strong enough to kill the cancer cells regularly enough so they don’t build up to dangerous levels.

Many pioneers of natural cancer treatments have been very successful, such as Max Gerson, William Kelley and others and their extremely successful treatments are just attacked by the medical community, despite the fact that the medical community have failed to be anywhere near as successful as these pioneers.

There is a history of bowel cancer in my family, but I certainly won’t be having my colon removed any time soon!!! I’ll just continue to eat well, stay hydrated, exercise regularly, minimise my toxic load, stay mentally and emotionally positive and get adequate rest and sleep. That’s my approach to staying healthy and vibrant and when you’re healthy, you can’t be unwell.

My own opinion is that Jolie didn’t have the full facts to hand before making such an important decision.

I think it was a very sad day (for her) and I really hope other women do not follow her example and instead educate themselves about the causes of cancer and how to lead a lifestyle that will greatly reduce the chances of cancer from occurring.
