Caner is actually an abnormal cell growth. In other words, cancer cells take over and
push normal cells out of the way. You can think of it like a drop of water. The drop of
water is the normal cell. Then the bucket fills with mud. The mud is the abnormal cells.
Not a very good example.
However, the jest of it is abnormal cell growth
that can become very abundant and increase far beyond the normal cell growth.
What causes cancer? Well in my opinion, abnormalities and abundance. In other words,
if you partake of something that is considered not good for you in abundance, you have
a higher probability of developing abnormal cells.
Now here is the thing about that, you might die of something else before those abnormal
cells kill you. Some cancers are slow growing and others fast growing.
I had a friend that was having problems, went to the doctor, and was told he had liver
cancer. He did drink a lot of beer all his life. Within one week, he was dead. Before
that, he never had a problem. Just one day he woke up with abdominal pains. The
doctor told him to get his family together and things in order because he probably
wouldn't live a month. He didn't live one week.
It's easy for people to say they are alright with their life style but when you are on
your death bed, you will wish this and wish that.
My husband, I tried to get him to stop smoking for years. He was told one of his lungs
was almost gone in terms of just dead tissue. He was having therapy and all that when
he was told, he needed heart surgery or he would die. He told me he wished he had
listened to me. There he was after heart surgery, tubes every where, induced coma,
and when out of the coma he could not talk due to the tubes and all he could do is look
at me and some times nod his head. He was in the hospital for two weeks in that
condition. Sepsis so bad that his feet and hands were black. He was swollen so much
blisters appeared under his skin. Then he died. Nothing I could do. Helpless.
I tell you this because often people don't take into consideration others around them,
their family, their friends. What you do to your own body can have an extremely
significant impact on others.
He was 69 years old. BUT a lot of people live to be far into their 80s and 90s. I would
have thought we'd have at least ten more years together.
It's really not tough to eat foods you like and enjoy without eating meat. The tough part
is simply making the change to other foods. Once you discover all the good healthy foods
you can eat, eventually the thought of eating meat, escapes you.
