Day 157

Fruits and Vegetables Are No Miracles In Cancer Prevention.

Thoughts: Do you believe this? You might if it was coming from a reliable source right? A reliable trustworthy source like CNN?

I read this article today. Disgusting. I cannot believe that people would read this and believe it to be true. The indigenous people that lived on this earth thousands of years before us survived on only fruits and vegetables and meats and cancer was not in their vocabulary. Now CNN are saying that the basic necessity that the Earth humbly provides does not prevent cancer. No they do not, so here instead take this man made pill...this ought to prevent you from cancer. Or eat some more hormone infested meat for protein that ought to give ya good health for 80 years. Yes I am being sarcastic. These people are sick and corrupted and robbing the lives of millions. And yours too. If you let them.

So let’s look at the article. First of all, the photo they used for the article, is the most unappealing vegetable photo of dirty potatoes and bland colours. And underneath the caption reads "A new study published this month implies that eating fruits and vegetables doesn't help prevent cancer as much as it's touted". The 'new study'. THE NEW STUDY. Need I say more?

This is the article is in bold font below and the regular font is me talking.

CNN) -- The benefits of fruits and vegetables in staving off cancer exist, but they're not as strong as previously believed, a new study reports. Eating an additional 200 grams a day of fruits and vegetables (about two servings) resulted in only a 3 percent reduction of cancer risk, which was described as "very weak," according to the study published online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Did you know that the National Cancer Institute actually exist because cancer exists in the world. Without cancer this organization would not be here and would not make its yearly billions. Did you know that the pharmaceutical company is the largest money making business in the world...billions...and if you are not sick they don't make money. They need us to be sick. So don't eat vegetables folks just in case you never get sick and never get cancer, because they need to make their billions, and have their deluxe homes, fancy gadgets, and extravagant lifestyles, private jets. It's becoming so obvious and so easy for us to see these days, how our sickness is linked to billions of dollars.

Some background information on the National Cancer Institute...The NCI budget this year is 2.5 billion dollars. 99 percent of it will go into researching man-made drugs, the same thing they have been doing for 60 odd years with abysmal results. Most cancer patients in this country die of Chemotherapy. NCI is an absolutely corrupt, inept, incompetent organization and it conveniently reverses the overall rise in the mortality form cancer.

"This doesn't mean fruits and vegetables aren't important," said lead author Dr. Paolo Boffetta, the deputy director at the Tisch Cancer Institute at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. "They aren't the only factor. There is no one factor."

The World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Cancer Society all encourage people to maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat five servings of produce a day for cancer protecting benefits. Don’t you want to know who are the people running these organizations? See how easily we trust them as we quickly assume that people in these positions are doing the best they can for the people. And we assume that they are looking out for our best interests and want us to be healthy and well. I know I want to believe that us human beings are being looked after too. Wrong. And don’t worry I’m with you. I just want to live a happy and healthy life. I feel violated and angry and grateful too that I know this stuff. And everyone deserves to know.

The U.S. government's food pyramid recommends 1.5 to 2 cups of fruits a day and 2.5 to 3 cups of vegetables for adults. See guidelines here Funny how when you look at their “suggested” pyramid (when actually they say you “need”) that the highest serving of foods they say we “need” is 6 servings of grains a day! Yes I will repeat it again the largest food group they want us to eat in the pyramid is GRAINS. And when you check out the list they encourage us to eat which are on the grain list are...
-white flour
-degermed cornmeal
-white bread
-white rice
-corn tortillas
-flour tortillas
-Ready-to-eat breakfast cereals
-corn flakes
-white sandwich buns and rolls

AND GUESS WHAT??? All of these (except white rice) contain corn. Now corn is manmade, if human were to die so would the corn. Corn is in virtually everything we consume. It has become part of every meal, every day, in mass quantities, from children to senior citizens to cows. What makes up a corn kernel is starch, which causes inflammation in our bodies, makes us fat, just as it beefs up a cow and causes us bloating. If they can feed chickens corn and they grow chunky in half the time, imagine what it is doing to us!?! If you watch Food Inc you can see chickens so beefed up on corn that they take just a few steps and their legs snap un-able to hold their weight. So yeah let’s take the most unnatural, man made things we can get and eat it 6 TIMES A DAY!!!

And then they go on to say "Most refined grains are enriched. This means certain B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid) and iron are added back after processing. Fiber is not added back to enriched grains". Yes they strip it away and then add man made vitamins BACK into it. Not a natural process at all. See my blog from Day 149 for more on corn and the dangers of it.

Vegetables are a suggested intake of that is 2-3 servings and fruit 1-2 servings. And I know that before The Earth Diet I was sucked into thinking "Oh I can't have too much fruit it one day, it's too much sugar". Yet I would happily go have a slice of bread which contained twice as much sugar, but artificial sugar! Now the MILK section suggests 3 cups a day which includes milk, cheese and a lot of types of cheeses, icec ream, desserts and yoghurt. And of course the dairy industry is also a multibillion dollar company. The milk industry is losing money in the western world due to more and more people becoming aware of the detrimental effects on our long term health. The countries that consume the most dairy products have the highest incidences of breast cancer, colon cancer (and other cancers), osteoporosis, diabetes etc etc so now the industry is looking to the East to spread its wares. China who are almost 100% lactose intolerant are being told milk is good for them and are being sold cattle which are not suitable for their climates. It is a dirty, dirty business.

Most cow's milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, dioxins (up to 200 times the safe levels), up to 52 powerful antibiotics (perhaps 53, with LS-50), blood, pus, faeces, bacteria and viruses. (Cow's milk can have traces of anything the cow ate... including such things as radioactive fallout from nuke testing ... (the 50's strontium-90 problem). (more on milk in my blog day 135) (6-7 teaspoons of oils)

Then for meat and beans it's suggested that we need 5-6 servings a day and oils is 6 teaspoons per day.

So, so far they have said we “need” to consume ALOT OF FOOD all in one day....

-6 servings of grain
-3 servings of milk
-Fruit 1-2
-Vegetable 2-3
-5-6 servings of meat and beans
-Oils 6 teaspoons

So tell me government, why do we take some ‘things’, twirl them around in a machine, make them into “food” and say we “need” them above fruits and vegetables. And most people don’t excrete this amount of calories in a day so guess what...they pile up as fat...on your body. This seems TOTALLY backwards to me. And if they really care about people’s health and wellbeing enough to create a pyramid, why don't they stop making junk foods, artificial sugars and fast food all together. The government does have this power you know. And again, it's money. They make billions off the meat industry, billions off the corn industry, billions off the pharmaceutical industry. You are paying them to kill you.

They don’t make billions off fruits and vegetables. That is a fact.

Scientists think fruits and vegetables have anti-cancer compounds, affecting enzymes, immune system and hormone levels.

From 1992 to 2000, Boffetta and the 51 co-authors obtained self-reported dietary and lifestyle habits of 478,478 people from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. The participants answered questions about their medical histories, physical activities, tobacco and alcohol use, and habitual diet.

They lived in 10 Western European countries and ate varying diets. About eight years later, a follow-up revealed that more than 30,000 participants had cancer -- the incidence rate was about 7 per 1,000. Can you trust these studies?

Researchers raised the prospect that people who ate more fruits and vegetables could have lower cancer risks because they had generally healthier lifestyles, "such as lower intake of alcohol, never smoking, short duration of tobacco, and higher level of physical activity." These could've been factors rather than just fruit and vegetable intake.

Previous studies have touted the benefits of produce, with findings of 20 to 30 percent reduced cancer rates. The latest finding from the European study was low in comparison.

"Diet is a complex pattern and lifestyle," Boffetta said. "Cancer is complex disease. It's unlikely that one thing will explain the other."
Diet is NOT a complex pattern. It is if you make it. No it's simple, eat actual real foods provided naturally by the earth. Stay away from the complex human machine.

The study does not contradict existing American Cancer Society guidelines about eating five servings a day to reduce cancer risk, said Dr. Michael Thun, the organization's vice president emeritus of epidemiology. It reaffirmed existing notions that higher intake lowered cancer risk, he said.

"In my view, there is a good body of evidence that fruit and vegetables do matter for cancer -- it certainly matters for heart disease," Thun said. "It's not as strong as initial studies suggested."

Decades of research have shown that eating processed red meat increases risk of cancers in the digestive tract and that obesity is associated with colorectal and breast cancer. But "the story on vegetables and fruits has been harder to nail down," Thun said.

Dr. Christine Gerbstadt, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, warned against slacking off on daily fruit and vegetable intake because of this study.

She pointed out eating fruits and vegetables has benefits beyond the cancer realm.

"It does help with lowering weight and blood pressure, lowering diabetes risk or lowering blood sugar. Those are all health benefits that increase lifespan significantly."

They also provide soluble and insoluble fiber, minerals, high nutrients and low calories, she added.

It's time people knew the truth. Now you get to choose for yourself.



Challenges: The reason I even blog about this stuff is because I do care about the human race, I love human beings and believe everyone deserves a chance to remember who they are, experience abundance, joy, love and health. These people are robbing the lives of millions, and people don’t even know its happening. You might not even know. I didn’t know for many years.

Triumphs: Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of freedom, peace and joy :)

208 days to go!!!


  1. With all the preservatives and chemicals in foods no wonder we are sick! Fruits and Vegetables are so important as well as Meats (in appropriate doses). This article is right in the fact that it is all about money and companies making it from sick people. A lot of organizations and institutes would not exist if we all led healthy lifestyles without consuming chemicals and preservatives and getting regular exercise. But each to their own opinions, but no wonder the health system is struggling to keep up. Hear Hear to this article, one that I actually agree with! Thanks Liana.

  2. Well Said Liana. We are a Country that makes MONEY on Illness and Disease...and now we see the real reason for the new Health Care Bill. The Government wants their share of the LOOT.
    ROCK ON LIANA....I am sooo behind you>
