...the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.
Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes.
Dr. Otto Warburg in The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer

In the case of cancer, constipation and excessive meat eating should be the two suspects, when they are present cancer is rife, where absent there is none.
Dr. Ernest H. Tipper in his book "The Cradle of the World and Cancer - a Disease of Civilization"

Understanding the Nature of Ill Health and Disease
The entire approach and foundation of Orthodox Medicine is based on Louis Pasteur's Germ Theory, a flawed concept. A disease condition is viewed by the orthodoxy as an isolated event, confined to the area in which it manifests itself (e.g. an ear infection, eye infection, gum infection, lung cancer, skin cancer, etc. ). Under this theory, for unknown reasons, microbes or tumors indiscriminately grow in the patient and must be cut (surgery), burned (radiation), or poisoned (drugs) out of the body. In the orthodox model, the solution is sought through mechanical and chemical solutions. Seeking to understand WHY the infection or disease condition appeared in the first place, is not usually seriously explored. The quick fix with a prescription of drugs to smother the symptoms is the typical 'answer'.
A contemporary of Pasteur, Antoine Beauchamp, had a different opinion as to why disease conditions 'took hold'. Beauchamp felt that the ENVIRONMENT, or the ECOLOGY of the blood played the critical role in deciding whether disease conditions would manifest or not.
Alternative medicine explores the stressors (environmental, biological, chemical, psychological, and emotional) in a patient's life that cause a weakening of a particular energy field; which in turn allows the manifestation of a disease condition in a weakened area. In order to maintain a state of health, all energy systems within the body need to exist in a state of balance or equilibrium. Imbalance leads to conditions of discomfort (dis-ease) which eventually spirals into ill health if not corrected. The Chinese and Indians (Ayurvedic medicine) had worked all of this out thousands of years ago.
Orthodox or Allopathic Medicine utilizes poisonous substances (drugs) in non-lethal dosages in order to suppress symptoms in an affected area. This approach neither addresses the cause of the disease condition, nor is it responsible for healing the patient. Rather, the use of drugs often will temporarily mask the outer manifestations of the malady, while at the same time, drive the disease deeper into the body...only to reappear at a later date, as a more serious, and chronic health threat. One of the many flaws of the orthodox approach is that it focuses on the disease condition itself, rather than the patient. The term wholistic (or holistic) sprang up to distinguish those physicians whose diagnostic gestalt considers all of the physical, emotional, and spiritual energies interacting with the patient.
Ken Adachi in Forbidden Cures - Suppressed 'Alternative' Therapies

...the basic cause of disease is no longer a mystery. The basic cause is the habits of improper diet, inadequate exercise, negative mental attitudes, and lack of spiritual attunement which combine to produce toxic conditions and malfunction of our bodies. The elimination of the cause of illness is the obvious and only way to healing and health. The elimination of the habits that cause illness is done through the positive approach of developing proper habits that cause health combined with corrective techniques that remove the ill effects of our former incorrect ways.
Stanley Burroughs

Cancer is a disease of civilisation. It is practically unknown to the primitive races leading primitive lives. Hundreds of medical men who have practised for decades among the South African negroes have never seen a cancer case... On the other hand, cancer is not uncommon among the South African negroes in the coast towns who for decades have lived more or less on the white man's diet... Cancer is essentially a nutritional disease. It is far more prevalent in the towns where people subsist on artificial food than in the country where men eat fresh natural food, take plenty of exercise and are less troubled with intestinal stagnation and auto-intoxication than are the sedentary inhabitants of the larger cities. We need not abolish civilisation in order to abolish cancer. We need only reform our lives in accordance with the dictates of nature...
Sir Arbuthnot Lane, Bart., C.B., M.B.,M.S., F.R.C.S., famous Scottish surgeon, speaking in the House of Commons

The association between meat-eating and cancer is well shown in civilisation by the prevalence of cancer among the short-lived butchers and its comparative rarity among the long-lived clergy and farm labourers who eat very little meat.
Sir Arbuthnot Lane, famous Scottish surgeon

I confess that I believed in the irradiation of tonsils, lymph nodes, and the thymus gland. I believed my professors when they said that of course radiation was dangerous, but that the doses we were using were absolutely harmless. Years later — around the time we found out that the 'absolutely harmless' radiation sown a decade or two before was now reaping a harvest of thyroid tumors — I couldn't help wondering when some of my former patients came back with nodules of their thyroids: Why are you coming back to me? To me, who did this to you in the first place?
Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

Seventeen out of every 20 cancer victims shouldn't have cancer, they have been murdered by the callous indifference of the people with power.
Dr Vernon Coleman, F.R.S.M., Sunday Independent, November 1987. (Dr Coleman went on to become President of the International League of Doctors Against Vivisection.)

And we have made of ourselves living cesspools, and driven doctors to invent names for our diseases.
Plato

Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against Nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illnesses will suddenly appear.
Hippocrates

But nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause be. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention. That prevention of cancer will come there is no doubt, for man wishes to survive. But how long prevention will be avoided depends on how long the prophets of agnosticism will succeed in inhibiting the application of scientific knowledge in the cancer field. In the meantime, millions of men must die of cancer unnecessarily."
Nobel Prize Winner Otto Warburg in a meeting of Nobel Laureates, June 30, 1966

The food we eat is not mankind's only determining factor. The body, soul and spirit all have their functions and roles to play, their areas of influence. But the harm done by eating the wrong kind of food fats has repercussions in all realms of life, including healthy mental and spiritual functioning. In our world, however, the choice of healthy food is one of the elementary aspects of our lives which we should organize as such. It is far more important than many people in the Western world are willing to admit. It is not those who acknowledge this fact who are materialistic in their way of thinking, but those who are not willing to forego something, in order to achieve a far greater goal.
Dr. Johanna Budwig who developed a protocol for healing cancer naturally in "Flax Oil as a True Aid"
