Why do some people get cancer while others don’t?
NOTE: This is the fourth in a series of reports on Ty Bollinger’s book CANCER: Step Outside the Box. Catch up with Part 1 Part 2, and Part 3 before continuing on….
I know my family asked the above question when my mother got sick with cancer, and I’m sure we aren’t alone with that inquiry.
It’s vitally important to maintain a healthy immune system, a balanced pH, and oxygenated cells. And it’s entirely like the flu bug at work. The people who maintain a healthy immune system don’t catch the flu, while others succumb to it. Yet all were exposed to the same microorganisms.
That’s what happened every year at the YMCA where I worked. I never got sick, but most of the other senior staff did. There were times I was the only senior staffer there! And that’s out of 8 people!
Bollinger surmises that some people are “better able to resist cellular mutations and damage of outside toxins and carcinogens. Perhaps their acid buffering systems are better suited to maintaining homeostasis within the body’s pH system. So, despite years of exposure to external toxins, chemicals, tobacco, and eating a poor diet, they will not develop cancer, while others exposed to the same toxins will develop cancer.”
Is there a genetic link?
A large study of 89,576 twins by the Paul Lichtenstein of the Karolinska Institute of Stockholm, Sweden, as reported in the 2000 New England Journal of Medicine, showed that genetics had nothing to do with the likelihood of cancer. I was delighted to read that! It is mainly attributed to chemical pollutants, bad eating habits, and unhealthy lifestyles.
So you needn’t worry about cancer in your family being a sign that you’ll probably develop cancer. Make a concerted effort to eat a healthy balance diet (organic as much as possible), balance your bodies’ pH with the right foods and minerals, stop smoking (or never smoke!) and avoid chemicals as much as you can. This will help.
And should you develop cancer, there are lots of ways to successfully treat that cancer to avoid the Big 3 – cut, slash, and burn.
