We are constantly reminded that obesity1 is associated with many different diseases, from high blood pressure and heart disease, from cancer and diabetes, to ulcers, skin infections, gallstones, gastritis, gingivitis, glaucoma, and gout – to name just a few…
Why is obesity associated with so many diseases? Continue reading “Why is OBESITY associated with so many Diseases?” »
There is no war on cancer.
There is a war on cancer patients. More victims are dying every year. Even if your doctor issues a death sentence “you have three months to live”, you cannot choose your method of execution. You can only choose to wait, or to accept the treatments your doctor is allowed to use. This is a war on all cancer patients – not just generic cancer patients (which don’t usually die from their cancer). But it does affect generic cancer patients as well. Even if your cancer is not likely to kill you – you treatment choices are limited to those allowed by the so called “cancer war”.

In the book: “Love Your Disease: It’s Keeping You Healthy”, John Harrison, MD explains that disease is both self-created and self-cured. ”To cure ourselves we need to take back the responsibility of loving and caring for our [selves]… from whomever we have entrusted the task.” John explains that in many cases, our disease arises from activities that are meant to be and are in some ways actually healthy.
We each have unique healthy activities, which change over time through drift or deliberate actions. Our healthiness, our unhealthiness, and our disease arise, for the most part, from our choices and our actions. What about generic cancer?

Our medical system is schizophrenic with regards to generic cancer. Cancers are classified by tissues, but treatments attack malignant cells and ignore – or worse actually decrease tissue healthiness.
Cancer Research UK, classifies cancers into carcinomas (cancers of the Epithelial tissue), sarcomas (cancers of the Connective tissue), leukaemias and lymphomas (cancers of the blood and lymphatic tissues), and gliomas (cancers of the nervous tissues). In the previous post: What is Generic Cancer, Does Generic Cancer Kill?, I concluded that sarcomas are typically ‘generic cancers’.

What is ‘generic cancer’? Is there such a thing as generic cancer? How common is it? What causes it? What is the best treatment? Can it be cured?
Modern medicine views cancer as a disease. It uses surgery to cut the disease from the body, chemicals and radiation to attempt to kill the disease. At the same time, modern medicine admits that it cannot ‘cure’ this disease called cancer. Medicine considers a cancer to be ‘dead’ if it does not recur for 5 years after treatment. If it re-appears after 5 years – it is considered to be a ‘new cancer’. Continue reading “Generic Cancer Part 1: What is Generic Cancer, Does Generic Cancer Kill?” »
The most common misconception about nutrition is that we actually know a lot about nutrition.
Fact: no-one studies healthy nutrition and diet in a serious, scientific fashion.
We have lots of theories, lots of errors, lots of contradictions, but little true scientific testing in search of truth.
Virtually all of the scientific research into nutrition is ‘illness based’, not healthiness based. Continue reading “What should everyone know about nutrition?” »
If a super-intelligent alien was to visit our planet and search for a scientific theory of illness, she might conclude the our prevailing theory consists of “sell the drugs” and “damn the consequences”. She might also know that the scientific theory of illness consists of:
Illness Theory #1: Every illness has a cause.
Definition: a PRIMARY or SIMPLE ILLNESS is an illness that has a single cause. A non-primary illness is an illness with more than one cause.
Definition: an UNHEALTHINESS is an imbalance (a deficiency or an excess) in healthiness that is not severe enough to be classified as an illness.
Definition: Healthiness is the opposite of unhealthiness. When healthiness increases, unhealthiness decreases. When unhealthiness increases, healthiness decreases.
Does our medical system have a theory of illness? You might be surprised to learn that there is no prevailing scientific theory of illness. There are many so-called theories of illness, but none that achieve the simple theoretical reality of a scientific theory. Illness seems to be everywhere in practice, but it is nowhere in theory.
