The issue is, we are spending billions of dollars for cancer and other chronic illnesses.  Has anyone stopped to think why this is occuring.  I am a medical professional  (R.N.).  I practiced for 44 years in my profession.  I now see that there is more to health than pills and powders.  There is a movement inthis country amoung professional , drs. nurses and others to change the landscape of treatment to healing.

We live in a toxic world.  For example, additives, genetically engineered  food supply in corn, etc.,  herbicides, pestacides, Not to speak of the poisons found in the pills and powders that treat symptons.  The cause of a chronic illness is not addressed.  That is a big factor in the billions of money spent for health care. 

Each person needs to take responsibility for their own health.  Our approach to health should be an Integrative one.  Do not depend on drs. and pills and powders as the only alternative.   get out  of your box and see what is healthy and good for you.  Health is hinged on the choices we make.  It is a known fact if we eat lots of sugars, fats  and additive laden food products,  we are poisoning our bodies.  I am saying also that with the food we put in along with a pill for every SYMPTON THAT WE EXHIBIT, makes for disaster in our body's immune system.   Pharmaceuticals, Physicians, and their influence promote illiness and cure rather than healing and prevention.

We poison our bodies further with  alcohol, cigarettes and illicit drugs and wonder why we are spending so much money on health care.  

Get real at the top starting with the Department of aGRICULTURE, THE SURGEON GENERAL AND THE PROFESSIONALS SUCH AS ME WHO HAS EMBRACED A MORE HEALTHY LIFE STYLE.   

wE ARE WHAT WE EAT, LITERALLY.  tHIS INFORMATION IS KEPT FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC, SO ILLNESS CAN BE PROMOTED AND THUS THE VISCIOUS CYCLE CONTINUES.

FOODS PRODUCED TODAY HAVE ABOUT 1/10 THE NUTRITIVE VALUE AS IT DID 50 YEARS AGO.  THE SEEDS , ETC HAVE MOVED FROM THE PURE PRODUCT TO HYBRIDS.  NUTRITIVE VALUE HAS BECOME SECONDARY, SO PRODUCTION SEEMINGLY MAKES MORE FOOD,  pEOPLE BECOME SICKER AND SICKER BECAUSE OUR BODIES ACTUALLY STARVE BECAUSE OF LITTLE OR NO NUTRITION.  

FAST FOODS, CONVENIENCE OF PREPARED FROZEN DINNERS HAVE RUINED OUR MEALS.  tHEY ARE FILLED WITH CARBS, FATS AND TONS OF SODIUM.

hOPING THINGS CAN CHANGE ONE PERSON AT A TIME.  i HELP ANYONE WILLING TO LISTEN TO THE NEW  INFORMATIN TO HELP THEM LIVE MORE HEALTHY.

CANCER IS  A DISEASE CAUSED BY BREAKDOWN OF THE SYSTEMS OF THE BODY .  ONE  CANNOT GET ANYONE TO DISCUSS NUTRITION , EXCEPT FROM A CARBOHYDRATE, PROTEIN FAT APPROACH WITH MULTIVITAMINS.  Supplements that build an immune system are not offered to make it stronger.  In the end, no matter what meds, etc are given to a person. it is his/her immune system that  fights the cancer.

Summary of all of this, it behooves everyone to get out there ask questions, and take a personal interest in what they are eating.
