Cancer and healthy living
After reading the paw-paw thread, I was motivated to point out one thing that I think we all know, but most of us ignore.
Thousands of cells in your body die every day. They are replaced by new cells made up entirely of what they have on hand to build themselves with. What they have on hand is what we put into our bodies.
So it's sort of like a computer...garbage in, garbage out. If we eat junk food for 30 years, we will be growing progressively weaker cells. Sort of like a xerox copy of a xerox copy. Every copy gets worse. This makes it easy for cancer to attack and spread because the cells have nothing in them that would resist it.
If we eat healthy foods, high in antioxidants and vitamins and low in fats and "bad" carbohydrates (not all carbs are bad), then our cells will be able to fight the cancer when it attacks. Most of the time, it will be defeated before we even know that it was attacking.
I don't know about you, but I wouldn't build a house out of inferior materials, because that's where I live. I live in my body too. I want my cells to only be built of the best stuff I can afford to put into it.
