The typical definition is that “Cancer is a disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body”. This is not entirely correct or a complete enough definition.
My definition is better (IMHO) and is “Cancer is a SYMPTOM of chronic and systemic dysfunction, toxicity and disease, which causes the cells to lack the ability to perform normal functions such as metabolism, growth and programmed cell death.”
Cancer is not a disease, but a symptom of whole body disease. Tumours are a symptom of cancer, not the disease itself!
Despite what various cancer charities tell us, there are many known causes of cancer, many of which we are exposed to on a daily basis. When we know what the causes are (which we actually do know), prevention becomes very simple.
I have put together a 1-hour introductory presentation on cancer, which explains what cancer is, how it starts in the body, what causes it, and how you can prevent it. Follow-up or advanced presentations are available on cancer treatments, both medical and alternative. These presentations also make up a cancer workshop which Ross is presenting in person and online soon!
More information on this will come soon in further articles on this topic!
