Book Excerpt

Hello, and thank you for your interest in Natural Health. The book you are looking at is about cancer, how to prevent it, and how to defeat it.

The following is a short excerpt from Chapter Three. It provides a short sample of the contents of this book, and how it was written.

An Excerpt from Chapter Three….. Enjoy the read.


While we are on the topic of how disease is generated in our bodies, I would like to say a few words about how various diseases are passed on to our offspring. Some people believe that certain diseases run in their family. They believe that if their Mother had kidney problems, that they will have kidney problems as well, or because their Father had a bad heart that they will also have a bad heart.

They look at this as certain disease conditions being hereditary in their family. Disease can and does get passed along to future generations, but heredity has nothing to do with it.

Heredity is defined as “The transmission of characteristics from parent to offspring by means of genes”. This refers to passing on family traits that have to do with physical characteristics such as height, body type, hair color etc. It has nothing to do with passing on disease. If your Mother had red hair, it is likely that you will also have red hair.

Just because cancer or heart disease may have been a serious problem in your family does not mean that it will be a problem for you. Let me try to explain.

In a perfect world we would all be created equal. In other words, we would all be in perfect health when we were born. Our bones would all have formed properly, our hearts would all be strong, we would all have the right number of fingers and toes, and we would all have the same opportunity to lead normal, healthy lives. However, this is not always the case.

One hundred years ago our ancestors did not have junk food. There were no chips, no pop, and no fast foods. A snack to them was eating an apple, or maybe munching on a carrot they had just picked from the garden. Because of the quality of the food they ate they were generally a lot healthier and stronger than we are.

Diseases like cancer were unheard of until someone was past middle age. Today, we have babies being born who already have cancer, and there is a very good reason for this.

I don't think anybody can dispute that the health of a fetus is directly tied to the health of the mother, and this is because whatever the Mother consumes will be passed on to the fetus. The unborn baby does not have a choice about the quality of the nutrition that it receives.

We have all heard of babies being born with a drug dependency. This is because the Mother was on cocaine, or heroin, or some other drug while she was pregnant with the child. The health of the baby is a direct reflection of the health of the Mother during pregnancy.

The same principle also applies during the child’s infancy. Whatever Mom and Dad eat is what the toddler eats. If the parents eat food that does not provide the proper nourishment for healthy growth, how can you expect the child to grow up strong and healthy?

This is now a very serious problem because we have raised a generation of junk food addicts. Combine that with all the toxins being put into our commercial food, and a lot of our young people really do not have a very good chance at good health.

What does all this have to do with heredity? Just this. The health of the children is closely tied to the health of the parents, but it has nothing to do with heredity, it has everything to do with the same dietary habits.

If the parents are hooked on junk food, it is very likely that the children will be hooked on junk food as well. If the Mother is overweight, and if the daughter has the same diet, then it is very likely that the daughter will also be overweight.

We can take this one step further. If a parent has a particular diet, and that diet has caused a heart condition to occur, then the child with the same diet will very likely develop a heart condition as well. Or, if a parent has a diet that has caused cancer, and the child has the same diet, then cancer is also likely to occur in the child. Heredity has nothing to do with it.

This process of passing on disease conditions to our offspring can easily be broken by changing our own, and our children’s diet. We can break this cycle of passing on disease conditions to our children by educating them, and ourselves, about the value and benefits of eating proper nutritional food.

In this chapter we looked at how and why most diseases, especially cancer, originate in our body, and in a later chapter we will take a look at what we can do to prevent cancer from occurring, how we can defeat any cancer that we may have, and how we can keep our body in good health.

Thank you for reading the excerpt above.

The purpose of writing this book was to let the general public know that there are alternative options to the conventional treatments for cancer, and this book goes into great detail in explaining how these natural methods can help you.
