Discover & Understand How to Prevent Cancer & Heart Disease by:Denis Van Loan B.S.,D.D.S.,
Degenerative diseases, like cancer and heart disease are caused by chemicals that irritate and cause inflammation, wreaking havoc on your healthy cells. Your biochemistry is disrupted.
"We know that most degenerative diseases are limited to free radical damage"...according to James Balch, M.D. In 1954 Dr. Denham Harmon said this: "A single common process, modifiable by genetic and environmental factors, was responsible for ageing and death of all living things." This is truer today because of the increased assault of chemicals on your body and its genetic code. Disease is produced by damaged DNA and inflammation.
The body is a complex balance of chemicals both organic and inorganic. Even nerve transmission and brain function are very much affected by chemicalsespecially foreign ones.
This includes not only toxins but also drugs and foreign (man made) substances that "gum up" your biochemistry. The delicate balance and harmony is disrupted and degenerative diseases develop.
Just as an unwanted keystroke in the html code can corrupt the software on your computer, so also can a damaged gene produce disease. Chemicals are the sources of these aberrations to your genetic code. It boils down to inflammation.
All inflammation causes free radical damage by release of free electrons. Electrons are very active "energy balls". They bombard other atoms and molecules causing free radical damage to them.
The net result is often damage to the nucleus of the cell where the genetic code resides. When there is damage to the genetic code of DNA and RNA, permanent damage occurs. Chronic diseases like autoimmune ones of arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia occur. In addition, other familiar diseases like heart disease, cancer and kidney disease easily develop.
You may ask why and how does inflammation occur? Anything that is an irritant will cause inflammation. Acute inflammation creates immediate symptoms like pain, swelling and redness in the tissues. It reminds us something is wrong.
Unfortunately chronic inflammation often does not cause symptoms that are directly associated with what is happening in your body. All degenerative diseases are inflammatory. You may be wondering what the dynamics and process is that defines chronic inflammation?
Chronic inflammation is long term, relentless irritation, usually on a low level. It does take its toll. All inflammation causes free radical damage by release of loose electrons. Electrons are very active and they bombard other molecules and chemical compounds in your body.
The net effect of loose electron bombardment is damage to cell nucleus where the genetic code resides. When there is damage to genetic code of DNA and RNA, permanent damage occurs. Chronic diseases like autoimmune ones of arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia occur. In addition other familiar but lethal diseases like heart disease, cancer and kidney disease develop.
If you study a microscopic slide of cancer cells you will see out of control, bizarre, inconsistent, irregular, tumor cells. Most of the time, they are so changed in their appearance they are nearly unrecognizable from the original, normal cell. The DNA has changed drastically.
Nearly everyone knows the term "carcinogen" is associated with cancer. What this means is that certain substances, chemicals can cause alteration of healthy cells which turn into cancer cells. In layman terms, the mitochondria and genetic code of the cells get "screwed up". This spawns a misfit, rogue cancer cell. If enough of these cancer cells proliferate and multiply, a tumor can develop. (anti-oxidants are helpful in preventing this)
While drugs are valuable in certain fights against disease, they nearly always attack the symptoms without addressing the root cause of the disease. When biochemistry is disrupted, homeostasis (body chemical balance) is disrupted and disease is allowed to flourish. The immune system is compromised, the hormone balance and function disrupted, the nerve conduction impaired, the body is upset and becomes weak.
Allergies often develop and neurotransmission is stalled or impeded. Nerve transmission is a chemical phenomenon and when foreign chemicals contaminate the synaptic nerve junctions, transmission is thwarted. Neurotransmitters that signal hormone activity are compromised or even stopped. Memory, cognitive decline and brain tumors can result.
The body is under attack by a proliferation of toxic chemicals and substances that damage the mitochondria and the DNA of cells in your body, often altering the genetic code, causing aging and pre-mature death. Cancer is a common example of this.
There is a limit to what the body can handle in detrimental foreign substances. On a daily basis your body takes in toxins in the form of air, water, food and absorbable foreign substances. Your body handles these toxins each day, eliminating chemicals and foreign substances primarily through the liver, kidney and lungs.
Unfortunately our modern environment sometimes overwhelms your body with huge amounts of a toxic substance or substances that are carcinogeniccancer causing.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are 80,000 toxic chemicals that you have exposure to.
These foreign substances include, but are not limited to herbicides, pesticides (4 billion lbs. in the U.S.A. each year.), mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, solvents, asbestos, trans fats, prescription drugs, cleaning agents, inhaled smoke and auto exhausts, cosmetics, ammonia, artificial food products, preservatives, and numerous biochemical pollutants.
These products cause inflammation and sometimes genetic aberrations that produce cancer and other degenerative diseases. Prevention is the key to health. This means reducing exposure to impure water, air and toxic laced food or any foreign substance.
Anti oxidant supplements in the form of vitamins A, C and E, plus plenty of raw vegetables and unprocessed fruits, help counteract the genetic degradation of DNA. Numerous well controlled studies demonstrate that raw vegetables can reduce cancers incidence as much as 30% to 70%.
Do not allow toxic chemical to be inhaled or come in contact with your skin. Toxins tend to have a cumulative effect. Diet is an enormous factor in degnerative diseases. Good diet makes the body strong, building immunity and resistance to disease.
Reduction or elimination of packaged and prepared foods is important. Drastic reduction of excess sugar, fried foods and artificial (foreign substances) helps prevent disease, because they are all highly inflammatory. Inflammation is the mother of all disease.
