I was diagnosed with cancer. I have no family history, I have no health indications that would make anyone think I'd be prone to cancer, I rarely get sick...
So, I believe there is NO reason I should have had cancer.
But, I was lazy about my diet - I found it easier to each quick and cheap, than to prepare thoughtful healthy meals.
I had a lot of stress in my home life and at work... that weakens the immune system.
I had very little time to exercise - and always felt guilty about it.
I lived in a house that had radon gas - yes, we mitigated (which basically means you try to air out the house), but I wasn't concerned about it.
All the things that my body needed to stay strong, I just let them go. I made everything else a priority.
So. Now that I've had cancer, I think: Is the cancer something that just happens, or is it really preventable?
Can I change my diet, and environment, and exercise - all things that improve survival - will that prevent it from coming back? Was my lack of concern before a cause for cancer?
I don't know. But my body feels like that is true.
How can the cancer possibly return, when I am giving it nothing??
I created a graph to illustrate my point at: http://strongerthancancer.com.
I will continue to build on this idea, because I truly believe it's possible. I would love to hear other people's opinions.
