My mother died when I was 15 from cancer. Cancer has always been part of my family: my grandmother & grandfather both had
cancer. That's why I almost became a hypochondriac at the age 21. I was sure cancer would be my destiny. Headache? Brain tumor. Bowel & stomach pain for 2 years?
Tumor. High cholesterol? Cardiovascular Disease coming.
Then I started reading about nutrition and I changed my diet to mostly whole food plant based meals. No bowel pain anymore. Perfect cholesterol, calcium & even iron. At the same time, I started to understand that, even with bad gene odds, we could redefine the outcomes & give our ugly diseases no terrain to grow on.
Today, it is estimated that only 10-20% of cancers are attributed to inherited genes, which means that up to 85% of cancers initiate because of our lifestyle, environment, and diet!
Throughout our families hardship, when my mother was sick, I remember the only hope we placed for recovery was in drugs; drugs that weaken you and hurt you at the same time. Nothing was about nutrition. Food at the hospital? White bread, butter and maybe a side salad. When I think of it, it makes me angry. Today, we know so much about antioxidants in vegetables and the link between gut & immunity that we can build an unfriendly terrain for the disease. So let's try now!
