Cancer is caused by both internal & external factors such as Inherited Mutations, Hormones, Immune Conditions & Environmental/acquired factors such as Tobacco, Diet, Radiation & Infectious organisms.
The consumption of Paan, Betel Nut, Tobacco & Slaked Lime are the main cause of lungs & throat cancers.
Heavy consumption of alcoholic drinks can cause Esophageal, Stomach & Liver cancers.
Alternatively cancer may be caused by Industrial waste pollution such as Asbestos, Nickel, Tar.
High doses of X-rays can lead to Skin, Lungs cancer & Leukemia.
Other factors contributing to cancer are Vital Infections, Trauma, Hormone Imbalance & Malnutrition.
Furthermore, faulty diet is also one of the root cause of cancer.
The effective treatment of cancer consists of a complete change in diet.
First of all you must eliminate all environmental sources of carcinogens, such as smoking, carcinogenic chemicals in air, water & food.
Consequently diet is not just a minor, but rather a major factor in both the development & prevention of cancer.
In addition you can also prevent & treat cancer by dietary programmes that include natural foods and the use of megavitamin supplements.
As a first step, you should cleanse your system by thoroughly relieving constipation to make all your organs like Skin, Lungs, Liver, Kidneys & Bowels active to eliminate cause .
In addition use enema to cleanse the colon & to do so you should take only juicy fruits like Oranges, Grapefruits, Lemons, Apples, Peaches, Pears, Pineapples & Tomatoes for first four to five days.
As a result your diet should consist of 100 percent natural foods, with emphasis on Raw Fruits & Vegetables, particularly Carrots, Green Leafy vegetables, Cabbage, Onion, Garlic, Cucumber, Asparagus, Beets & Tomatoes.
Most of all you must add high quality protein in your diet, such as Almonds, Millet, Sesame Seeds, Sprouted Seeds and Grains.
Wheatgrass juice is very much affected to repair cells. Fasting & Grape diet is another remedy for the treatment of cancer, fast for two to three days so as to prepare the system for the change of diet.
After the short fast, you should have a grape meat every two hours in a day. Follow this routine for three weeks but in chronic stage follow the same for one to two months.
You should begin the grape cure with a small quantity of 30, 60, to 90 grams per meal & start increasing gradually to maximum upto 250 grams per meal.
According to several studies, vitamin A exerts an inhibiting effect on carcinogenesis. It is especially relevant & one of the most important aids to the body’s defence system to fight and prevent cancer.
Beta-Carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A, which acts as an inhibitor for skin cancer.
It helps the body to thwart cancer-causing process known as oxidation.
As a result it acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells against oxidation damage.
Eat fruits such as Cantaloupes, Apricots and vegetables such as Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Spinach and other Leafy Green Vegetables to source beta-carotene.
Excessive carotene in the diet can color the skin yellow, a condition called carotenemia.
Most of all, use of green, yellow vegetables & fruits also acts as prophylactic agent against cancer.
Hence, people eating green & yellow vegetables every day have less risk of developing Lung, Stomach & other types of cancer.
Those who reported the highest consumption of carrots, squash, tomatoes, salads or leafy green vegetables, dried fruits, fresh strawberries or melon had a decreased risk of cancer.
