…is cancer. Young and old, male and female, any country, a frighteningly increasing number of people suffer cancer.
Cancer is not a disease, but a symptom. There are many forms of cancer, each with its own mix of immediate causes, but they happen when three factors coincide:
- Carcinogenic agents (poisons, ionising radiation, etc.)
- Stress, particularly chronic, long term stress of the kind society imposes on a great many of its members
- An immune system that’s suppressed or overloaded in other ways in addition to stress.
I’ve set all this out in my 2005 book, book on cancer, and things have only become worse since.
In my book, my co-authors and I give clear guidelines on how to reduce your chances of getting cancer, and how to react if you already have it. But that’s a band-aid solution. We need to change society to eliminate the root causes.
A no-brainer is to stop releasing huge amounts of toxins into the environment, such as glyphosate, as Michelle Schoffro Cook writes.
The second is to change society so it serves people, rather than the other way. Pointing the way to the kind of world we need inspires all my writing. If you haven’t done so, please read my essay, How to change the world.
Comments are welcome, and if cancer has devastated your life, directly or second hand, I am happy to be here for you via email.
