The diet / cancer link

The genetic modification of foodstuffs for example is still largely untested and many of its results are open to interpretation. Scientific knowledge ofrepparttar processes involved is actually at an early stage. Little is known about side effects, how gene function is controlled, gene transfer into other organisms such as bacteria inrepparttar 147233 human gut. The British Medical Association (B.M.A.) has said thatrepparttar 147234 potential adverse effects have not been sufficiently investigated and strongly recommend caution. The United Nations' safety body,repparttar 147235 Food and Agriculture Organisation, has warned thatrepparttar 147236 failure to carry out full health checks on G.M. foods could lead to toxic reactions, allergies and increased resistance to antibiotics.

Experience has shown that genetically modified and organic foods cannot exist together because genetically modified crops will cross-pollinate with any others. Contamination ofrepparttar 147237 whole food chain has already occurred within a couple of years. Biotechnology companies that are facing opposition in Europe are targeting less well resourced countries such as India inrepparttar 147238 hope that genetically modified organisms will spread irreversibly before public opinion has time to intervene.

In addition to avoidingrepparttar 147239 carcinogens that are increasing everywhere in our culture, we need a complex yet balanced mixture of specific minerals and nutrients to maintain ourselves in a healthy way. Recent government policy recommends we should eat a minimum of five or six fruit and vegetable types in any given day. The British Dietetic Association's survey shows thatrepparttar 147240 typical English diet includes only 3.3 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. The Scottish consume 2.7 portions a day whilerepparttar 147241 Irish get only a measly 2.3. New research from Spain suggests thatrepparttar 147242 quality of food and its method of preparation are as important asrepparttar 147243 quantity, since many ofrepparttar 147244 nutrients in food are destroyed during industrial preparation and even in domestic cooking processes. In order to gainrepparttar 147245 breadth of specific minerals we need to maintain health using food, we need fresh, quality food types, cooked appropriately, or at least someone to sell usrepparttar 147246 right supplements!

The quick-fix mentality of Western culture has grown so used to pill-popping supplements that markets have responded to this. The American public uses increasing amounts of vitamin and mineral supplements. A survey conducted byrepparttar 147247 Federal Drugs Authority (F.D.A.) in America states that over 60 million Americans believe that vitamin supplements are essential for good health. The report also shows that about 20 million Americans believe that mineral deficiency is a primary cause of disease, including cancer, which shows what a good marketing jobrepparttar 147248 supplements industry has done. Drug corporations are moving quickly intorepparttar 147249 supplements industry following market forces. Legislation in Europe is posed to ban many supplements (like herbs) that have a natural source, in preference to pharmaceutical alternatives. Even though appropriate dietary supplements are becoming recognised as a useful tool in maintaining health, legislation is fast catching up to regulate this field, showing a clear preference to synthetic chemicals.

In 1980repparttar 147250 National Academy of Sciences Committee on Dietary Allowances (who established R.D.A.'s or Recommended Daily Allowances) found no scientific evidence for nutritional benefits from vitamins, minerals or trace elements in dosages greater than those supplied by a balanced diet. Supplement industries with generous advertising budgets persuade many people that it is better to have 'expensive urine' than be at risk to disease through lackingrepparttar 147251 right vitamin or mineral in a diet.

Paradigm shifts in cancer treatment

Written by Simon Mitchell

Continued from page 1

cancer: something has gone wrong with this body, it has grown an enemy inside it. I will root it out and battle with it.

Paradigm 3: The Gaian view (an emerging paradigm) This paradigm started with Einstein andrepparttar science of energy. Its inception combines an age when we sawrepparttar 147232 first images ofrepparttar 147233 Earth as a whole entity from space. James Lovelock and his search for life on Mars is a central figure in its development through his identification ofrepparttar 147234 Gaia Hypothesis regarding Earth.

This planet we inhabit is a self-balancing, homeostatic system similar to our own as single biological entities. It maintainsrepparttar 147235 optimum conditions for life despite our best efforts to pollute it. Our bodies are a miracle of biology, constantly flexible and adaptive but easy to harm. Anything we do to it or each other, we do to ourselves as we are part ofrepparttar 147236 same 'web' or 'circle' of life. We exist for a purpose but do not yet know what it is. We are part of an evolving cycle of life, a happening miracle.

cancer: something has gone wrong with this body, it is trying to tell me something. I will listen to it and get help to understand why it has happened and what I need to learn and do to get better.
