Cancer is a disease of civilization. 

Cancer is the end result of health-destroying

living and eating habits.


We are destroying our health

·         By the food we eat and

·         The current PROCESS of Food irradiation


Cancer is not, as some people think, “a thunderbolt of fate”, striking at random with no cure or cause.  There is a cause-and-effect relationship between the environment we’ve created and the health problems we are experiencing.


A new government law, world wide, food “Irradiation” is affecting the entire world of fresh food. The end result will be cancer, sickness, disease, and slow starvation of our bodies.

Irradiation of Foods


Slow starvation within your body

                                                       At a Glance


Cancer, plagues, and disease will continue to increase at a rapid pace.  We are already seeing more sickness and death in people with weak immune systems.


Our immune system will become weaker and weaker unable to fight off the many diseases and illnesses that we are and will be facing.


What is food irradiation and how does it affect our health?


 “Irradiation” of our foods is potentially devastating to our health by eliminating living enzymes, vitamins and nutrients. It prevents restoring and healing the body of cancer and other diseases.


Our bodies are created to heal themselves.  It is our responsibility to give ourselves the necessary healthy food to assist our bodily systems to function properly, and gives us a long and healthy life.


The large majority of disease and affliction including cancer is caused by a lack of necessary living enzymes, vitamins, minerals, supplements, and also the trace elements needed by our body to fight and survive.


United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved Food irradiation as a process of protecting us from unsafe sanitary practices and controlling the food supply by killing and destroying all living parts of the food. 


Irradiation of food is more economical in guarding our food processes than improving and supervising sanitary practices in the growing and processing of food. 


Sounds great at first thought, but consider the long term effects of our body being slowly starved to the point of exhaustion, fatigue, sickness, and disease. The body is unable to fight for health.


How long can our bodies survive on “synthetic” chemicals and food substances?


How much food irradiation can our body tissue store, before there are major body breakdowns?


We are sacrificing our health and the health of our family in lieu of practicing safe food growth and processing.  How devastating! 


Listed below are some of the positive benefits of irradiation of foods.  However, as you view the list, consider the underlying opposite effect stated.


·         Microorganisms can no longer proliferate and continue their malignant or pathogen activities. (Remember, both necessary and malignant microorganisms – all are killed). 


·         Spoilage-causing micro-organisms cannot continue their activities. (Because spoilage can be stopped, we are more likely to eat spoiled foods).


·         Insects do not survive or become incapable of proliferation. (If there is not enough food values, nutrients, etc. for insects to survive, is there any food value left for human consumption?)


·         Plants cannot continue the natural ripening or aging process. (Most of the food supplementation of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements are formulated during the last stages of natural ripening and aging process.  It is NOW being halted.)


Irradiation of our foods will potentially


§         be used to mask spoiled food,

§         discourage strict adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices,

§         preferentially kill 'good' bacteria, encourage growth of 'bad' bacteria,

§         devitalize and denature irradiated food, (destroy enzymes and vitamins)

§         impair the flavor,

§         not destroy bacterial toxins already present,

§         cause chemical changes which are harmful to the consumer,

§         and, on top of all, is unnecessary in today's food system.


Why would anyone consider eating foods that have undergone irradiation? Considering the above listed qualities and you will see that the health of everyone will be greatly affected over time?


In treating cancer alternatively, the focus is on restoring or maintaining health.


The body needs living enzymes and vitamins attained from the fruits, vegetables and other living food that we eat.  These necessary food elements come during the final stages of natural ripening.


Keep in mind that all the living enzymes, as well as many other vitamins and nutrients and trace supplements, are devitalized, if not destroyed, by the food  irradiation processes.


It is important to again focus on the fact that much of what our body needs from the foods that we eat is gained during the natural ripening process of our food. 


But food irradiation prevents natural ripening. 


Irradiation causes chemical changes that will drastically affect the health of our body systems.  The body is created to eat whole natural foods, ripened in the natural environment of sunlight and air.  Not chemicals!


Think about the effects that irradiation will have on our immune system, and other organs of our bodies, especially with the passing of time. 


Each time we alter our food in any way, we will bring devastation to our body.


So it will be with the irradiation of our foods.  What foods will be irradiated


All fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meats, and eggs, along with other living foods, are by law to be irradiated. 


Food irradiation is currently permitted by over 40 countries, and volumes of food are estimated to exceed 500,000 metric tons annually world wide.  This volume will increase in the coming months and years.


Because of the 'Single Market' of the European Commission (EC), any food--even if irradiated--must be allowed to be marketed in any other Member State.  The USDA has agreed to the same guidelines.  Even if a general ban of food irradiation prevails in a country, irradiated food can be sold under the condition that the food has been irradiated legally in the state of origin.


Irradiation does not need to be stated on food packaging labels.  Many people are consuming irradiated foods without their awareness. 


Furthermore, with imports from third world countries, if the irradiation facility had been inspected and licensed, and the treatment is legal within the country or state of origin of the food, it can be sold anywhere in the world.

We cannot change the irradiation of foods on the market; however we can change our living and shopping habits. 


Organic grown foods are yet safe from the irradiation process, because of their high standards of growth and processing of food for organic certification.



Organic farms and foods do not yet come under the guidelines of food irradiation.


The selection of non-irradiation food sources will be important in healing the body. 


The health conscious person will turn to organic produced, and organic processed, foods. 


Organic farms and stores are re-emerging.   Many are taking steps to become a part of an organic farming co-op, market., or store to ensure good health for themselves and their families.


Organic food has a high spoilage rate as its freshness is only a few days.  Because of this, organic food will come at a higher cost.   The variety of foods will be more limited, as we will focus on the fresh organic foods of the season of growth.


It is also important to consider additional supplementation of organic whole food supplements from companies that have practiced good soil management, and Good Management Practices.

These supplements also meet my needs when I am unable to juice the quantity of juice needed to provide my immune system with the optimal supply of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace elements not yet discovered.


Summary Thought:


Start Building your Immune System with Organic

natural foods, especially the dark greens and dark

colors of fruits and vegetables.


It is our immune system that destroys the cancer cells and heals other infections, diseases, and infirmities. 


Our immune system is built up and strengthened with a wide variety of organic foods, especially the dark green and dark colored fruits and vegetables.


TIPS AND TECHNIQUES                               At a Glance


Hydrogen Peroxide is;

·         safe externally and internally;

·         Inexpensive;

·         Cleanses and disinfects;

·         Best of all adds oxygen to the body systems.


Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an inexpensive product found in most drug stores and discount stores. 


Hydrogen peroxide is a great product that boosts serum oxygen levels to revitalize normal cells, while damaging viruses and other pathogens.


It may be absorbed through the skin by bathing in it.  4 to 5 pints of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide in a standard-size bathtub is recommended.


Hydrogen peroxide can be applied topically by rubbing it on your skin.


It is a great product for cleaning and healing cuts, bruises, and skin abrasions.


Many dentists recommend it for cleansing and healing the mouth following dental work.


I use it daily as an oral antiseptic.  I do not need as much dental work.  My gums have healed. 


Hydrogen Peroxide also assists in keeping my body alkaline, which fights the cancer cells and other viruses in my body.

RADON:  The Health Hazard with a Simple Solution

Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste.  Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health.  Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America, and claims about 20,000 lives annually. 


We are just beginning to recognize the far reaching effects of radon on our immune system and other body organs.


Find out more about the effects on radon, and the simple test you can use to determine if you have “radon” in your home.
