Cancer is a Nutritional and Environmental Dis-ease

If you take the time to visit the cancer pages on my original website, established in 1991, you will find this note:

There are at least 22 known causes of cancer including malnutrition, reported by the USDA to be related to at least 50% of all cancers in 1972, resulting from over 100 scientific studies.  Most nutritional deficiencies included low levels of magnesium, vitamin A, zinc, B complex, iodine, vitamin E, and choline (an important  brain nutrient).

and  you will find this note:  Columbia University School of Public Health reports that 95% of cancer is caused by diet and environmental toxicity.

Now today, you can read this - and wonder why it takes so long for the mainstream to inform you.

Healthier Lifestyles May Prevent 340,000 U.S. Cancers a Year: Study

THURSDAY, Feb. 3 (HealthDay News) -- About 340,000 cancer cases in the United States could be prevented each year if more Americans ate a healthy diet, got regular exercise and limited their alcohol intake, according to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF).
These types of lifestyle changes could lead to significant reductions in particularly common cancers such as breast (38 percent fewer cases per year), stomach (47 percent fewer) and colon (45 percent fewer).
The research about how a healthy lifestyle can reduce cancer risk was released Feb. 3 to mark World Cancer Day. The WCRF said its findings are supported by the World Health Organization's new Global Recommendations on Physical Activity for Health, a report that says that regular physical activity can prevent many diseases, including breast and colon cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
"Physical activity is recommended for people of all ages as a means to reduce risks for certain types of cancers and other non-communicable diseases," Dr. Tim Armstrong, of WHO's Department of Chronic Diseases and Health Promotion, said in a WCRF news release.
"In order to improve their health and prevent several diseases, adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity throughout the week. This can be achieved by simply walking 30 minutes five times per week or by cycling to work daily," he advised.
Other healthy lifestyle habits that reduce the risk of cancer include quitting smoking, avoiding secondhand smoke, avoiding excessive sun exposure, and preventing cancer-causing infections, the WCRF said.
Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. Each year, 12.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer and 7.6 million die from the disease. But 30 percent to 40 percent of cancers can be prevented and one-third can be cured through early diagnosis and treatment, according to the WCRF.
