What Causes Cancer?

by Sharon on November 14, 2012

People are getting ill – a lot of people! The statistics are shocking – one in two men will get cancer in their lifetime, and one in three women. So what is causing this to happen? Why are people getting cancer? Is there anything we can do to avoid getting the disease?

What is causing this to happen – why are people getting cancer?

People don’t just get ill. The body is well equipped to handle illness – and to recover from that illness. That is the natural order of things. The trouble comes when a number of factors fall together to create and un-balanced state, or dis-ease.

There are four main causes:

  • Life-Style
  • Environmental Issues
  • Psychological Factors
  • Genetic factors


Life has become very fast. We jump out of bed, rush off to work, often with no breakfast, swallow a couple of cups of coffee to keep us going, rush through the morning & by lunch time are starving – just in time to grab an on-the-run hamburger or toasted sandwich. Super is not much better – there’s just too much to do, between work, our partners, children, social life, study etc etc … It’s no wonder we just don’t have time any more to look after ourselves. Who has the time to cook a healthy meal every night? If we look at the above example it is riddled with habits that are incredibly bad for our health.

The lifestyle factors most responsible for ill-health are:

  • Stress / anxiety / worry
  • Eating incorrectly
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Too much alcohol
  • Over-work
  • Insufficient rest

What happens here is that poor lifestyle choices causes stress in the body. Stress is a direct cause of acidity build-up. Acidity in the body causes the immune system to weaken. And when the immune system starts to slow down & is unable to handle it’s workload, we are in trouble. That’s when we get ill.


There are a large number of environmental issues which can cause cancer. Some of these, and this is by no means a comprehensive list, are:

  • Genetically Modified foods
  • Chemicals added to our food and water
  • Livestock which are fed steroids & chemicals to speed up growth
  • Contaminated lakes / rivers / seas – which then contaminate fish & other marine life
  • Toxic work environments
  • Plastics which melt into our food & give off poisonous gasses when heated
  • Dangerous metals in various places, such as mercury in halogen globes
  • Weapons of war


There can be many psychological factors for becoming ill. Life can be hard, and for some, a difficult & tough road to travel.

Here are some psychological factors which could play a part in getting ill:
Childhood / other unresolved trauma
Unresolved limiting or negative belief systems – such as “Nothing good ever happens ..”
Exhaustion from excessive worry & struggle
Unresolved feelings of guilt / anger / pain / fear or other strong emotions

Sometimes there is even a hidden agenda or ‘benefit’ from being ill. Often the sufferer is completely unconscious & unaware of the agenda – such as:
Getting a lot of attention from loved ones
Preventing a spouse leaving
Insurance or unemployment benefits


There could be genetic links to the disease – where there is cancer in the family.

Is there anything we can do to avoid getting the disease?

Yes – there is a lot we can do. Vast amounts of research have been done about the causes of cancer. This has empowered us to make wise & healthy choices. The information below is based on solid research & has been proven to help prevent cancer, and also assist healing from cancer:

Things To Avoid!

It is a sad but true fact that we live in a far from perfect world & there are many hazards to our health in our environment. Being aware and taking that little bit extra care to look after ourselves can go a long way towards eliminating circumstances & foods which  cause problems for our bodies. Knowledge is power!

Things to avoid:

  • Plastic containers in the microwave – various plastics do different things: emit poisonous gas / release chemicals / particles break off – into the food
  • Don’t use cling-wrap in the microwave – plastic from cling-wrap melts & drips into the cooking food!
  • Water bottles in the sun – minute particles disintegrate & float into the water, contaminating it
  • Non-stick pans – use at lowest heat possible. The plastic emits so much poisonous gas at high temperatures that it has been proven to kill pet parrots that are in the kitchen! Secondly, particles of plastic break off into the food

Foods to avoid:

  • Genetically Modified Foods –  more than double the poison is sprayed on GM foods than other crops – avoid at all costs
  • MSG or Monosodium Glutamate is quite literally lethal! (Note – please see note at end of article listing the different names used for MSG in foodstuffs)
  • Aspartame – this is used extensively in diet drinks – avoid at all costs – cannot be digested by the body & accumulates & solidifies in our body.
  • Tap water – contains Fluoride & other chemicals – causes the body to store poisonous metals such as mercury
  • Refined foods such as white bread / white rice / white sugar – unhealthy food choices & do little for true nutrition

Note: Monosodium Glutamate has been widely publicized as being highly poisonous, and exceptionally bad for our health. However, manufacturers are not happy about taking this ingredient out of products, for various reasons, mostly to do with profit. So they have become quite sneaky at hiding this ingredient – by re-naming it.

The following is a list of ‘other names’ for MSG:

  • Monosodium glutamate
  • Monopotassium glutamate
  • Glutamate
  • Glutamic acid
  • Gelatin
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
  • Hydrolyzed plant protein
  • Autolyzed plant protein
  • Sodium caseinate
  • Calcium caseinate
  • Textured protein
  • Yeast extract
  • Yeast food /nutrient
  • Autolyzed yeast


Knowledge is power – know what you are putting into your body and be healthy.
