The Cancer PREVENTION Coalition

In my quest for recovering my health (documented throughout this blog), I realize that I repeatedly say over and over again (in so many different ways) the cause and effect that our food choices have on our health.

On thing I have learned throughout the years of intense study as I've tried to overcome my health issues is to NEVER TRUST an organization that makes a profit off of an individual, community or society being sick.  Never trust the advise they give for you to be 'well'.  If the company can't make money off of the suggestion (to be well), then they most likely won't recommend it to you and the company (without morals) would fight to keep you from knowing the cheap effective (and natural) way of treating the particular illness.

Please see my blog entry entitled 'Cancer' for a listing of books that were written by Doctors who had to give up their medical doctor licenses in order to teach people the truth about healing cancer - naturally and effectively. (Some from their own personal experiences battling and recovering from Cancer).

The below information is from the "Cancer PREVENTION Coalition".  Their website is http://www.preventcancer.com/consumers/general/dirty_dozen.htm. Now THAT is a Coalition I CAN TRUST.

Here is a list of the 12 products most likely to cause CANCER.  Avoid these products like you would a plague.

Here is the article...
