Cancer Information

It’s estimated 2 in 5 (43%) of Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Cancer is caused by an imbalance between the number of cancer cells in the body and the strength of the immune system. This imbalance allows cancer cells to grow, be noticed and become dangerous.

The following is an excerpt from ‘Food Matters‘:

The big problem with cancer research is that the public is led to believe that the big next breakthrough is around the corner. Look at any newspaper most weeks and there will be a story about a ‘new cancer cure.’ And yet when you stand back and look at what’s actually happening, our relatives continue to die and the cancer breakthrough turns out to be just another drug that causes cancer.

The big mistake is that the cancer industry is continuing to view the tumour as cancer and we all know the tumour is not cancer. If the tumour were cancer that would mean we could cut the tumours out of the human body and they would never grow back. However, we know that’s not true and these tumours can and do grow back. And the reason they grow back is that the underlying metabolic process has not been corrected.

Mainstream medical treatment of cancer revolves around 3 treatments: surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapies, used either alone or in combination.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy is toxic and cannot discriminate between cancer cells and healthy cells; thus, they damage both types of cells and cause serious and often debilitating side effects, frequently forcing patients to abandon treatment. They also destroy a cancer patient’s already fragile immune system. Chemotherapy and radiation therapies will never fix the original underlying cause of cancer, often making patients sicker and usually decreases the quality of life. Therefore, it is not surprising that many cancer patients now opt to complement conventional treatments with alternative therapies.

Natural Cancer treatments do three things:

  • They safely get rid of cancer cells by gently killing the cancer cells.
  • They strengthen the immune system and remove toxins.
  • They shake up and correct the internal environment on which the cancer cells thrive, which in turn makes the body hostile to cancer cells.

A healthy, high fibre diet (consisting of fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, greens, herbs, whole grains, superfoods etc.) can greatly lower your chances of getting a debilitating disease like cancer. At Raw Blend, we believe that prevention is better than cure and a Green Smoothie is a great way to build up your immune system to help prevent diseases like cancer.
