SPECIAL PREVENTIVE FACTORS
Venereal disease can lead to breast, cervi-
cal, uterine, and prostate cancer.
Avoid contact with sick pets. Actually, you
would be wise to not have any dogs or cats inside the home.
The following can also lead to cancer: too
much sunlight (skin cancer); mechanical, physi- cal, or chemical irritation; prolonged irritation of warts, pimples, or sores (skin cancer); and radiation (leukemia).
The clothes should have no constricting
bands and should keep the neck, head, arms, legs, and feet warm. As many layers of clothing should be worn on the extremities as are worn on the trunk. This is especially important in cancer of the breast or skin.
A biopsy is a thin slice of tissue, taken to
examine it for possible carcinoma (cancer). But, when the slice is made, the cancer (if any) stored in that area, can immediately begin spreading throughout the body.
X-rays, radium, and other forms of radia-
tion therapy, along with chemotherapy. It weak- ens the body, intensifies the toxicity and weakened conditions initially producing the cancer. The can- cer generally returns within 6 to 12 months in greatly strengthened form.
Here is a brief list of some of the significant
factors leading to cancer: Chemical additives in food, refined and fragmented food, use of nico- tine and/or alcohol, a heavy protein diet, exces- sive use of dairy products, commercial oils and fats (especially when heated and reheated), all grease, hydrogenated oil (added to many foods), diethylstilbestrol, hormones, contraceptives, nitrates (often added to food), medicinal drugs, hard drugs, monosodium glutamate (in food and tobacco), refined sugars, saccharin and other artificial sweeteners, biopsies and other forms of surgery, pollutants (occupational and envi- ronmental), X-rays and radium exposure, cos- metics, detergents and soaps, water (chlori- nated, fluoridated, or contaminated), and alu- minum.
Jethro Kloss said that his cancer cure was
correct food, herbs, water, fresh air, massage, sunshine, exercise, and rest. Yet some famous medical dictionaries say nothing about diet in can- cer treatment, except to keep the diet under 2,000 calories. The truth is there is a close relationship between the food we eat and what happens in our bodies.
Meals, bedtime, periods of study, etc. should
be according to a regular schedule. Avoid noise, smog, television, worry, stress, and confusion. Do some reading everyday. Reading in God’s Word, accompanied by simple trustful prayer brings healing to heart, soul, and body.
Dr. Josef Issels’ cancer clinic, in Germany,
is an example of a well-rounded program. In addi- tion to other things mentioned in this book, he prescribes plenty of rest, complete freedom from worries and mental stress, and plenty of fresh, pure air day and night. To the degree the patient is strong enough for it, and as he improves, there is lots of exercise and walking.
Some, in a position to do so, may wish to
move to a warm, unpolluted climate (any left?) where fresh air and sunshine is continually avail- able. Build up the system with good food, exer- cise, and rest.
Continual overwork and exhaustion can lay
the groundwork for the development of cancer.
City living, with its hurry, noise, confu-
sion, and air and water pollution can also pro- vide the inferior living conditions which lead to malignant conditions.
WORR , DEPRESSION, AND STRESS
Stress is also considered a significant fac-
tor. More and more research indicates that, as Dr. H.F. Dunbar says, “only certain types of people succumb to cancer.”
Two Soviet researchers (Serov and Troskin)
demonstrated that negative emotions reduce the white blood count in an alarming manner, hin- dering a major body defense against disease.
Researchers at the Rochester Medical Cen-
ter in New York have found that people are more likely to contract cancer if, more than others, they have a harder time dealing with severe emotional conflicts and stresses; have uncontrolled anxi- eties and worries; experience traumatic emo- tional experiences or losses; and have strong feelings of loneliness, inadequacy, hopeless- ness, and desperation. It may not be that such negative attitudes cause the cancer, but they keep
