Do you know anyone who has or is suffering with breast cancer or prostate cancer? There are all too many people out there whose lives have been touched by this disease or some variation of any other type of cancer. The thing about it all is, could we have prevented it from happening?
As I mentioned before, my mother in law suffered from a very rare form of ALS (not Alzheimers) but Lou Gehrigs disease. It was so aggressive that by the time we diagnosed her, she died 6 months later. The reason I mention this is that there are a ton of diseases and neurological disorders that I truly think we can avoid if we just educate ourselves as to the products we use daily in our lives and we have our children use.
There are so many carcinogens that are put into our daily products that your head would spin if you read the label and actually knew what all that scientific lingo really meant! Reading labels is not enough anymore, its education. The first thing you should know is that your skin is the largest organ of your body and a direct connector to your bloodstream. So anything you put on your skin goes directly into your bloodstream.
If there is any form of breast cancer in your family, you should advise the men in your family to get a prostate exam, as there is a direct correlation to breast cancer and prostate cancer. So many men I know who have had breast cancer strike a woman in their family, have since been in for a prostate exam and all too many have had prostate issues. A dear friend of mine just had to have his prostate removed because he had prostate cancer and his sister had a lumpectomy just 1 year ago.
Do you know that our country is the only country that allows mineral oil to be put into products we use daily, not only on ourselves but also on our children. While mineral oil may be “a natural product” made from the means of the earth that we live on, so is carbon, and we all know that carbon causes cancer, so does mineral oil. Mineral oil is a byproduct of petroleum, you now the stuff we use in our car…you know it as gasoline and oil. It is cheaper to reconsitute it and sell it to cosmetic companies and pharmaceutical companies then it would be if we disposed of it the proper way. Mineral oil is one of the first ingredients in diaper rash ointment, yes the stuff you put on your babies raw bottom.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. All these toxins from not only these products but many others I have not even mentioned get stored in your body in our cells. They stay there until they are released into our bloodstream. Typically stress induces a chemical reaction in our bodies and releases those toxins. Those toxins then affect our organs causing cancer and neurological disorders. Because toxins love to be stored in fat cells within our body until they are released, they tend to store very often in breast tissue since it contains the most fat cells in most women.
My point is that we all need to be educated in what we are using on our bodies and use products that can promote antioxident generation. Steer towards products that are pure, safe and beneficial for you whether it is a product used internally (food) or externally (skin care and cosmetics).
All this being the primary reason I switched my entire family to a better choice of products carried by a company my favorite company. Education is key. Ladies, if you have not made your annual appointment for a mammography, use the time right now to do so. If you are younger then the age of 40, men or women, and have breast issues or prostate cancer in your family, it does not hurt to get checked.
