If you are like most Americans, you have an investment account. At least some of your nest egg is in the stock market, bond market, or maybe real estate. And if you are successful in growing your nest egg, you are investing with a long-term perspective: the average investor does best by putting aside money in a 401K or IRA regularly and not giving in to the temptation to chase the latest stock tip or pulling money when the market is sour.
Unfortunately, some investors see a bear market and panic, or the see some stocks doing better than their account is faring and chase them. They either fear loss or fear missing out on some opportunity. On average, the investors who forget that they even have an account do better. They invest for the long term and don’t chase short-term gain.
It’s a shame that the average person doesn’t take the same approach with health. Unfortunately, most of us take a short-term view of health. How many of us, when confronted with a cold or flu, take something from the drug store to simply mask the symptoms? We seek our immediate comfort first. But do we eat properly, build up our immune systems, and make ourselves less susceptible to colds and flus? If we weigh too much, do we invest in diet and exercise to bring the weight back down, or do we just make excuses, eat what we want, and tell ourselves the weight isn’t doing that much damage to our health? To avoid major disease, are we willing to invest long term in health? Or do we live for our comfort now?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world, but cancer, though second on the list, is the most feared. If you could reduce your risk of cancer by ten percent with moderate lifestyle improvements, would you make those improvements? What if those improvements reduced your risk by twenty percent? How about 30%?
Is it bad luck?
Even those claiming that cancer is largely due to the “bad luck” of random genetic mutations accept that environmental factors account for at least 30% of cancer risk. The bad luck hypothesis was set forth in an article published in Science, where scientists noted a strong correlation between tissue-specific cancer risk and the lifetime number of tissue-specific stem cell divisions, from which they hypothesize that such a correlation implies that more cell divisions means more random chances for mutations, and somewhere around 65% of cancers are due to intrinsic, or unavoidable genetic factors. This article led to significant controversy in the research community, however. Just because mutations occur in DNA doesn’t mean that the genetic damage will ever be expressed. Researchers are increasingly recognizing epigenetic reasons for cancer development over genetic reasons. Nonetheless, the bad luck hypothesis still admits 30% of cancer risk comes from environmental factors.
But if 30% risk reduction is not sufficient motivation for you, how about 70%? Published in Nature, researchers from Stony Brook University Cancer Center re-examined the data presented in the Science article and came to a different conclusion. First they challenged the assumption that any correlation between stem cell division rates implies intrinsic risk factors to be the primary cause of cancer. “If intrinsic risk factors played a major role, the tissue with the similar stem cell divisions would show similar observed lifetime cancer risk.” They found that rarely occurred and reassessed that intrinsic factors accounted for only 10% of cancers. Then they found that most cancers had mutations likely caused by extrinsic factors, meaning factors outside the cell. They also cited a primary disease database which shows the incidence and mortality of cancers has been increasing, which implies external factors have changed over time, leading to this increase. They conclude that 70% to 90% of cancers come from extrinsic factors.
So at least 70% of cancer development is due to environment. But how about the upper end of that range — 90%? Another study is even bolder, stating that 90%-95% of cancers “have their roots in environment and lifestyle.” This study was published in Pharmaceutical Research where researchers at the Cytokine Research Laboratory, Department of Experimental Therapeutics, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Boulevard, Houston, Texas reviewed numerous studies and statistical databases to arrive at that conclusion. They note that data shows that for people who migrate, their chance of developing most chronic illnesses, including cancer, are determined not by the country they came from, but the country that they migrate to. In identical twin studies, there was only about a 20% correlation between their chances of developing breast cancer; and since identical twins are more likely to have similar lifestyles, the purely genetic correlation may be much lower. Also they note that, even with all the research and treatments for cancer that have been developed, there has been no appreciable difference in death rates from cancer over the past few decades in the United States.
So now, with at least 90% of cancer risk coming from environmental factors, is it worth your lifestyle investment to lower your cancer risk? Or is the 10% “bad luck” factor sufficient for you to just live for comfort?
If environment is the key to avoiding cancer, what environment are we considering? If you eat the best diet, get proper rest and exercise, and hydrate well, have you made sufficient investment to reduce your cancer risk by 90%? From a cell’s point of view, its environment is what is immediately surrounding it, in part, but also the signals that are sent to it, perhaps from some distance. This means that distant cells, particularly from the brain, are impacting the cell as well as the environment right against the cell membrane. Without improving the signals that the cell receives, you haven’t succeeded in improving the cell’s environment. Signals cause the cell to react by looking into its genetic library for dormant codes that can improve its ability to manage its environment. This is referred to as epigenetics, where normal cells have many archived genetic codes that they can use to change their behavior, even behavior that leads to cancer.
The key is the cancer stem cell (CSC). We now know that normal cells develop stem cell characteristics, usually one step at a time, until they finally become cancer stem cells, when under sustained adverse conditions. As they attempt to cope with the signals they receive they become hardier and more versatile by trying to deal with the stress that the signals are presenting to them. Cancer is a complex variant of normal cell development.
This complexity, and the importance of considering the environment that creates and maintains the cancer stem cell (CSC) is explained in a review article published in Cancers. Researchers from the Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology, Kazan Federal University, 420008 Kazan, Russia and the University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK explain the various environmental characteristics of CSCs which lead to their creation and hardiness, and their ongoing reliance on that environment. “Stem cells cannot survive outside their niche environment or in the absence of specific pluripotency factors and signaling pathways that support stem cell function. Importantly, these factors can facilitate the emergence of stem cells from more differentiated cells…” This summarizing statement is made after listing the various signaling pathways and environmental conditions that progressively lead to “stemness” in cells which can create the CSC. Once the CSC is produced, it can evade toxins and radiation much better than normal cells, and if necessary simply go dormant to wait out the harsh conditions. But as stated above, it does have one weakness: it depends upon environmental signals, and will not survive outside of the environment it requires. In other words, the normal, healthy environment is the one thing CSCs will not tolerate.
You invest financially for the long term so that in older age you will have money to support yourself. You may invest in life insurance so your family
is protected when you are gone. You get homeowners and automotive insurance to protect against catastrophic unexpected damage to your most expensive possessions. All these investments require short-term sacrifices for long-term gain and protection. Yet, will you not sacrifice some short-term enjoyment for long-term health? And if you fear cancer, and have a 90% shot at avoiding it with proper investments now, will you continue to live for the comfort of today instead?
If you have cancer, are you going to take the drugs and hope that they will wipe out the cancer, knowing that they are making a better environment for cancer to thrive in the long run? Even if you manage to completely wipe out a tumor, are you changing the environment so the cancer does not simply re-develop? Cancer and health are opposites, and you are either pursuing one or the other.
Dr. Nemec’s Review
Cancer is not a random event, it does not just happen whenever it chooses to. Cancer is 100% driven by the environmental factors, the mental-emotional physical factors that you produce at the cellular level.
All people are designed to live to be 120 years old in perfect health. The original design was even longer, closer to 1000 years. What caused longevity to go from almost 1000 years to 120 years? Change in the environment: change in the mental-emotional first and foremost and then the physical environment.
What causes a lifespan of 120 years in perfect health to change to developing cancer at 35 years old and dying prematurely?
The environment: the mental-emotional and physical environment produced at the cellular level.
Who controls that environment?
90% of that environment is mentally and emotionally driven. 10% of that environment is physically driven.
How can I change the mental-emotional environment?
There are two different type of mental environments that produce the emotional environments. They are the subconscious mind and the conscious mind. This is further divided into subconscious stored programming, conscious stored programming, and present conscious thoughts.
What percentage are each of these environmental influences?
Subconscious stored programming, 90%. Conscious storage programming, 9%. Present conscious thoughts 1%.
Can I change the subconscious and conscious programming with my conscious thoughts that I produce each moment?
You can change conscious stored programming to a certain degree by what you choose to consciously think about and act upon. You cannot change the subconscious programming with a conscious thought.
Subconscious programming started between the ages of zero and six. This is when the environment told you who you were. At this age, since you had no conscious filter developed yet the environment produced who you are today. If that environment was unconditional love you would have a subconscious program of unconditional love, but on the other hand if that environment told you the opposite, that you were not lovable, you were flawed in some way, missing something, needing something, lacking something, then this is the program subconsciously that was written on the hard drive of your brain. You are simply a product of your environment, your whole life from conception to this moment.
How do I know how I was subconsciously programmed during those formative years of my identity?
You know by the tension and stress that you carry. If you were programmed with unconditional love, then you are extremely balanced, mentally and emotionally even under the worst situation, and in any circumstance you are the calm in any storm because you have a foundation that does not recognize any problems with self; quite the contrary, your programming is one that you can do anything, you can solve any problem, you can resolve any circumstance in the situation because of your identity, because of who you have been programmed to be.
If I have subconscious programming that is something other than unconditional love, can I change this, and if so, how?
We have been researching this question for 40 years and have come up with only two possible solutions:
The first and most powerful is to receive a spiritual revelation of who you are. This does not come from conscious thinking; this does not come from any conscious thought. This is a can only come from a deeper connection to your spirit connected to your Father’s Spirit. Second is we have developed a complete Revolution New Medicine Protocol® for isolating subconscious and conscious program imbalances with 3-D brain imaging, brain mapping, and cellular analysis combined with our physical system of release of any incorrect programming, then — most importantly — confirming the release with follow up 3-D brain imaging, brain mapping, and cellular re-analysis to confirm complete environmental change down to the cellular level.
How do I change the physical environment?
Change your diet and change your lifestyle completely. Stop making short-term gains with long-term losses. Instead start investing your life in the most important goal: longevity, with a complete functional ability of body, mind and spirit. We were all meant to live to be over 100 years old in great health. This should be the norm. It is meaningless to wait for technology to alter your genes pharmaceutically enabling you to live this long unnaturally, because you never released the subconscious programming of “not good enough” and “not lovable enough.” What good is it to live to be 120 carrying stress programming, having no peace in each moment, always feeling like something is missing, never feeling complete, and never knowing who you are because you are still carrying faulty subconscious programming. Instead, follow your desire by connecting back to who truly you are and how you were designed to physically take care of your body. It was this way in the beginning: people ate living and raw plant food, they drank pure water, they breathed pure air, they went to bed when the sun went down and woke up when the sun came up, they exercised many hours of the day in the physical activities that they did, and they did not worry about tomorrow — they lived fully in today.
This has been our program of treatment and teaching for 40 years at Revolution New Medicine®. It is the only way to see your life and your health. Any other choice would be choosing short-term pleasures, but sacrificing long-term health of body, mind, and spirit.
