When it comes to our ‘genes’, we appear to have been ‘indoctrinated‘ to believe that ‘the genes we inherit‘ have everything to do with disease and that we are totally at their mercy when it comes to developing cancer!!?? The fortunate thing is this is not the case!!
You will be pleased to learn that only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and the lifestyle we lead, which basically means that should we choose to adopt a ‘preventative approach‘ we could maintain healthy gene expression.
“What folks need to know is that genes can only express what they are fed. If they are fed a polluted diet from a toxic immediate environment (milieu), they will express disease.”
“Bad things can happen to DNA at almost any point in a cell’s lifetime, not just during replication. In fact, your DNA is getting damaged all the time by outside factors like UV light, chemicals, and X-rays—not to mention spontaneous chemical reactions that happen even without environmental insults!”
Fortunately, your cells have in-built repair mechanisms to detect and correct many types of DNA damage, as long as your cells remain healthy, they can read the signals to act as nature intended.
Even conventional science admits that our environment is a major risk factor for developing cancer. This therefore means that our lifestyle has everything to do with the health (and expression) of our genes and therefore cancer development.
