With all the incredible technologies that are being invented and such innovative minds receiving education, we all wonder why is it that diseases like Cancer are only increasing instead of reducing?
The likelihood of developing Cancer was 1 in 33, hundred years ago. Today, it is 1 in 2. This means that nearly half of Americans are expected to at some point in their life to receive diagnosis of this terrifying disease.
So the question now is: what has gone wrong? What are people doing differently than they were doing 150 years ago? Experts believe a variety of factors play a part, but most important one is the diet.
Most people lived off the land, traded fresh goods in exchange for other freshly-picked, canned, or butchered goods, and they also consumed higher-quality food products with higher nutritional value and less chemicals, hydrogenated oils, and cheap fillers 100 – 150 years ago. Sodium intake was also lower, as was sugar. And since that time, animal food consumption has increased dramatically.
This left even 70% of the population consuming highly processed, high-heated, low-nutrient, high-sodium, high-sugar, and high-fat foods that is packed with calories and devoid of true life force. So, it makes sense that consuming a diet primarily made up of junk food and factory-farmed animal products would contribute to an acidic system, weak organs, and a nutrient-deficient body.
If you think that any of these conditions are desirable for optimal health,you should think again. In 1939, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells cannot survive in an alkaline Ph. This means eating your fresh fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, sprouted nuts, seeds, and legumes, sprouted grains, and miscellaneous foods (like seaweed, spirulina, etc…) is not only a smart way to receive more nutrition, but is a prescription for optimal health. If you want to live long and reduce your risk of developing Cancer, your diet must become a priority. Other factors, of course, play a part in one’s risk of developing this disease (like EMF exposure, environmental toxins, stress, poor lifestyle, inability to forgive, among others…), but the cellular state of your body is the prime condition for your entire being to thrive.
The focus of Dr. William Li’s speech at a recent TedEd event is less-known perspective. Li describes a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor. The crucial step? Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game.
