Cancer like diabetes, hearth disease, asthma, and others is an enviromental condition rather than an viral, bacterial, or fungal disease.

 

Scurvy was the wrath of long distance travellers until they realized that citric fruits lasted long enough to provide them with the necessary vitamin C during their travels.

Goiter was the wrath of people far away from the sea and salt mines until it was found that sodium is an essential mineral in the human diet.

What is the key ingredient to cancer? What are we missing, or what do we have in our environment that we should not?

Please share your thoughts.

Key ingredient is your own cells. As far as I understand, cancer is just the uncontrolled reproduction of your own cells caused by a mutation in its DNA.

Yes, that is correct, and we know many things that appear to promote the development and spread of cancer in the body, but what is the trigger?

Life is the trigger. If you knew what the trigger is and could do something about it, then you are the winner. I doubt it is common to all cancers. Some are genetic. Genetic mutations is what made us evolve so stopping mutations is not good unless you want to stop evolution.

Life sucks (sometimes and depends if you make it through without getting sick or broken) and then you die.

I am sorry that you feel that way.  Do you feel sad by the idea that such a horrible thing as cancer is completely out of your control and that life sucks?

yes, you could say I am sad there are sick and damaged people in this world that I can nothing about.

If her god knows she has cancer wouldn't he/she/it take it away if he/she/it wanted without all the begging.



Why would he when he gave it to her in the first place?

Susan, I am not getting your posts. 

I am saying why should he respond to prayers to take away the cancer when he gave her cancer in the first place.

Did accidentally click the "stop following" link?

Booklover, I am not getting your posts. 

I'm saying I am not receiving your messages. I found them by looking on the list of postings on the right side of desk. I then looked up your home page and can follow your discussions. 

I like what you write. I am in the process of trying to find out how many of my "friends" are not coming to me. So far there are 11 friends' messages that I have not been getting for over a week. 

My next step is to contact Ruth or whoever runs this site. 

Thanks for contacting me. I now know you receive a private message from me. 

I am sorry about your son.  I did not mean to rest importance to type 1 diabetes by grouping all types of diabetes into one.  The reality is that cancer itself has many different manifestations and it is not one single process.

Diabetes is a malfunction of the pancreas to various degrees and from various causes.  I simply used the generic form, and I apologize if it offended you.
