Making A Killing With Cancer: A 124.6 Billion Dollar Industry

What will you do if you are selling something that made you rich over a hundred billion dollars per year: would you take steps to eradicate the need for your business? Or would you make every effort for that money continue rolling in?

Well, when we talk about cancer, it’s really a big business. No one in the position would want to end it because they are all making a killing on the big business of treatment, while ordinary people go broke, suffer horribly, and die. If they entirely eradicate the disease, profit would not be enough.

There will never be a “cure” bought to the market and there will never be a governing body who would protect the consumers from buying toxic products because it will stop the cash from rolling in.

Sad to say but many potential cures, as well as a lot of researches, were ignored, covered up, and discredited because there is far more money in perpetuating illness than in curing it. In 2012, the reported spending on cancer treatment was 124.6 billion dollars. Blood money!

Poisoned For Profit

Nowadays, we are daily exposed to toxic elements that are manufactured by Big Pharma, Big Agri, and Big Business. They are getting rich off of poisoning us.

The statistics support that cumulative buildup of different toxins in the human body can eventually result in cancer in many people.

First, the manufacturers and the “food” producers profit when we buy their poisoned goods. Then when we become ill, the medical system and pharmaceutical companies profit since we must fight cancer.

In the United States, the drugs alone can cost over $100,000 per year, and that is on top of exorbitant costs for radiation, chemotherapy, and physicians’ bills. Cancer is the #1 most expensive “per person” illness to treat in the U.S.


Prevention: Your Only Defense

Your best defense against cancer is by avoiding carcinogens as diligently as possible. Though it’s not easy, you can limit your exposure to these carcinogens by taking the followings steps:

Purchase Organic Foods As Often As Possible.

GMOs and pesticides are proven carcinogens. The toxins you ingest with pesticide-treated foods will gradually build up inside your body making you weak and susceptible to all kinds of diseases including cancer.

Load Your Plate With Colorful Antioxidants.

Choose foods that are loaded with powerful, cancer-fighting antioxidants and will boost your immune system against other types of illness and disease as well. Some of these foods are dark chocolate, berries, colorful veggies, and coffee.

Avoid Tap Water

You are at the risk of ingesting loads of toxins if you are drinking municipal water. There is the willful addition of sodium fluoride, a pesticide which is labeled as “deadly to humans.” Not only has the consumption of fluoride been linked to cancer, but it also causes hardening of the arteries, lowers IQs, and causes infertility. Moreover, chlorine I also present in tap water and it is used to kill bacteria that could make us sick. According to Dr. Michael J. Plewa, a genetic toxicology expert at the University of Illinois, chlorinated water is carcinogenic.

“Individuals who consume chlorinated drinking water have an elevated risk of cancer of the bladder, stomach, pancreas, kidney, and rectum as well as Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”

Limit The Use Of Plastic In Your Home

BPA or Bisphenol-A is petrochemical plastics that are a major component of many water bottles, lines the inside of canned goods, and makes up the hard material of many reusable food containers, including some brands of baby bottles. They leach cancer-causing endocrine disruptors, especially if the food is hot. It would be better if you use glass containers whenever possible.

Avoid Processed Foods

Many of the preservatives and additives featured abundantly in North America are banned in other countries because of the health risks they represent.

Avoid Artificial Sweeteners

One example is aspartame, which is a known carcinogen that breaks down into formaldehyde in the human body.

Select Non-Toxic Cookware

Nonstick cookware contains Teflon and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which emit at least toxic gases within 5 minutes of heating up that nonstick pan. Toxic particles are leached directly into the food you’re preparing once the pans become scratched. Aluminum cookware is also potentially toxic. Some better cookware options are cast iron, ceramic, glass, and clay.

Don’t Smoke and Consume Alcohol Only In Moderation

Smoking put your health at risk. It doesn’t even give any health benefit so it typically a health hazard to you and the people around you when you smoke. Alcohol, on the other hand, needs to be kept in moderation so it won’t have a negative impact on your health.


Select Personal Care Products That Do Not Contain Petrochemicals

Petrochemicals are present in many cosmetics and other health and beauty aids. The danger of this is their byproduct, 1,4-dioxane, a proven carcinogen. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies dioxane as a probable human carcinogen California state law has classified dioxane to cause cancer. Animal studies in rats suggest that the greatest health risk is associated with inhalation of vapors. Avoid the following ingredients:

  1. Benzene
  2. Phenoxyethanol
  3. Paraffin Wax
  4. Mineral Oil
  5. Toluene
  6. Parfum or fragrance – 95% of chemicals used in fragrance are from petroleum Butanol and any word with ‘butyl’ – butyl alcohol, butylparaben, butylene glycol
  7. Methanol and any word with ‘methyl’ – methyl alcohol, methylparaben, methylcellulose
  8. Ethanol and word with ‘ethyl’ – ethyl alcohol, ethylene glycol, ethylene dichloride, EDTA (ethylene-diamine-tetraacetic acid), ethylhexylglycerin
  9. Any word with “propyl” – isopropyl alcohol, propylene glycol, propyl alcohol, Cocamidopropyl betaine
  10. Anything with PEG (polyethylene glycol)
  11. Anything ending in ‘eth’ indicates that it required ethylene oxide (a petrochemical) to produce e.g. myreth, oleth, laureth, ceteareth
  12. Anything with DEA (diethanolamine) or MEA (ethanolamine)

Choose Natural, Biodegradable Food Grade Cleaning Products

According to the website Natural Pure Organics, the average household contains up to 25 gallons of toxic materials, most of which are in cleaning products. When you use these cleaners, they linger in the air and on the surfaces, increasing your exposure to carcinogens as you inhale the toxins into your lungs or absorb them through your skin.

Refuse Vaccines

Many vaccines contain mercury and formaldehyde which are both known carcinogens. By the age of two, if a child has received all of the recommended vaccines, he or she has received 2,370 times the “allowable safe limit” for mercury (if there is such a thing as a safe level of poison). The HPV vaccine can actually increase the risk of reproductive cancer. The polio vaccine most recently came under fire for its cancer-causing ingredients.

Maintain A Healthy Body Weight

Obesity has been linked to increased risks of cancers of the endometrium, uterus, colon and rectum, esophagus, breast, kidney, gallbladder, pancreas, and thyroid.

Exercise Daily

Never forget that the bottom line of all of this is PROFIT. For the pharmaceutical companies and the health industry, cancer represents big money. Prevention is not what they wanted. So maybe, it would be just a little bit sillier if you subject your body to the tender mercies of Big Pharma and the AMA and their already loaded pockets instead of just taking a step to avoid illness altogether.
