It was way back in 1971, that the then-President of the United States, Richard Nixon, declared war on cancer by signing the “Conquest of Cancer Act,” thereby officially inaugurating what has become better known as the “War on Cancer.” Friends, that was over 40 years ago, and to this very day, after being joined by such organizations as the Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, as well as other organizations, and after spending over 500 BILLION dollars on this “War on Cancer,” victory over cancer is no closer today than it was when the “War On Cancer” first began in 1971! You would think that after all these years, and after spending all this money, they would have won the battle against cancer by now, or at least made some significant progress. They keep telling us they are "winning" the war, and they keep encouraging the funding of their efforts so they can continue to do research, but the facts are that after all these years and after all the research, and after the spending of all this money, more people are experiencing and dying of cancer than before that war began.
Something is very wrong here. What is it?Some 20 years ago, Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize Winner, gave us a clue as to what is wrong here, as well as why more people are experiencing and dying of cancer then before the war began, when he states:
"Everyone should know the 'war on cancer' is largely a fraud. "Today, the treating of cancer is a huge business! Every 30 seconds another American is diagnosed with cancer, then spends an average of over $25,000 trying to get rid of that cancer, often exhausting their life savings, and what do they get for all their pain, suffering, and money – every 55 seconds, another American dies of cancer."If you will do a little research, you will find that almost all of the monies spent thus far on this “War on Cancer” over the past 40 years (just like with most other health issues), has been spent on seeking a drug to cure it, and the paying of salaries to those in the disease care business, rather than seeking the cause of the problem. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 26:2 that “. . . the curse causeless shall not come.” What is God trying to tell us here? I believe He is trying to tell us that cancer, along with almost every other physical problem a person experiences during his or her lifetime, will not occur without a cause! Would you not think it more prudent we spend our monies seeking the cause of cancer and other physical problems and then eliminating their cause so that people could know how to prevent them, rather than putting all of that money into looking for a cure AFTER a person has already been diagnosed?
What They Don't Want You To KnowWe must realize that if people knew the cause of a particular disease and how to eliminate that cause, the money being spent on seeking "cures" would dry up, and a very lucrative source of income for many individuals and organizations would cease. All the evidence points to an industry that does not want people to realize the true cause of physical breakdowns, because that would be unprofitable to them. And that, my dear friend, is the reason why, after over 40 years of cancer research, and after spending over $500 billion seeking a cure, we are no closer to winning the “War on Cancer” than when the “War on Cancer” began in 1971.
What Does Cancer Research Reveal?While various government agencies, as well as the American Cancer Society are looking for cures for cancer, there has been some interesting independent research going on seeking the cause of cancer. Dr. Gio B. Gori, Deputy Director of the National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Cause and Prevention, testified before a Senate Select Committee stating:
“Nutritional science is coming of age . . . No other field of research seems to hold better promise for the prevention and control of cancer and other illnesses, and for securing and maintaining human health.”Dr. Gori went on to say:
“Until recently, many eyebrows would have been raised by suggesting that an imbalance of normal dietary components could lead to cancer and cardiovascular disease . . . Today, the accumulation of . . . evidence . . . makes this notion not only possible but certain . . . (The) dietary factors responsible (are) principally meat and fat intake.”Dr. Mark Hegstead, a nutritional scientist from Harvard University, testified before the Federal Trade Commission some years ago saying:
“I think it is clear that the American diet is indicted as a cause of coronary heart disease. And it is pertinent, I think, to point out the same diet is now found guilty in terms of many forms of cancer: breast cancer, cancer of the colon, and others...”And here we are years later, and Dr. Hegstead’s words, along with the words of Dr. Gori, are still as up-to-date as tomorrow’s newspaper! Sadly their words have not been heeded by the medical community which continues to tell us that the cause of cancer is still unknown! John Robbins, in his book “Diet For A New America”, through the use of many charts and graphs, shows that countries with the highest consumption of animal source foods have the highest rates of breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancers, cervical, uterus, ovarian cancers, as well as numerous other cancers. Following is a quote from John Robbins book “Diet for A New America” that powerfully supports what I and Hallelujah Acres believe and have been teaching for many years now and he "amen’s" here what I still believe and what I am trying to say in this article:
“The war on cancer is a tragedy. Billions upon billions of dollars are being spent to develop and apply treatments that are invasive, expensive, painful, often mutilating, and in many cases of little benefit. “Meanwhile, most of us are unknowingly increasing the probability of cancer with our every meal. The more I’ve learned about diet and cancer, the more stunned I’ve been at our ignorance of their close relationship. We do not have to quake helplessly in the face of cancer, ‘hoping’ to escape its clutches. “We do not have to sit by passively, watching our loved ones succumb to this disease. We do not have to spend our life savings, undergoing painful and devastating treatments that do little or no good. We are blessed now with the knowledge, which enables us to make clear, life-giving choices. We need only make them in time.”
Can Diet Make A Difference?No one has done more research on the relationship of diet to disease than Dr. T. Colin Campbell, PhD, of Cornell University. Following are a few excerpts from Dr. Campbell’s book, “The China Study,” a book I highly recommend to all who are interested in learning the science supporting the diet relationship to cancer as well as most other diseases.
“What made the project especially remarkable is that, among the many associations that are relevant to diet and disease, so many pointed to the same finding: People who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. Even relatively small intakes of animal-based foods were associated with adverse effects. “People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease. “If you are male in this country, the American Cancer Society says that you have a 47% chance of getting cancer. If you are female, you fare a little better, but you still have a whopping 38% lifetime chance of getting cancer. The rates at which we die from cancer are among the highest in the world, and it has been getting worse. “Despite over thirty years of the massively funded War on Cancer, we have made little progress. Contrary to what many believe, cancer is NOT a natural event. Adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle can prevent the majority of cancers in the United States. “The American people need to know the truth. They need to know what we have uncovered in our research. People need to know why we are unnecessarily sick, why too many of us die early despite the billions spent on research. The irony is that the solution is simple and inexpensive. “The answer to the American health crisis is the food that each of us chooses to put in our mouths each day. It’s as simple as that. “So, what is my prescription for good health? In short, it is about the multiple health benefits of consuming plant-based foods, and the largely unappreciated health dangers of consuming animal-based foods, including all types of meat, dairy, and eggs. “Impressive evidence now exists to show that advanced heart disease, relatively advanced cancers of certain types, diabetes and a few other degenerative diseases can be reversed by diet. . . “One of the more exciting benefits of good nutrition is the prevention of diseases that are thought to be due to genetic predisposition. We now know that we can largely avoid these ‘genetic’ diseases even though we may harbor the gene that is responsible for the disease. . . In my own laboratory we have shown in experimental animals that cancer growth can be turned ON and OFF by nutrition, despite strong genetic predisposition. . . . Eating the right way not only prevents disease but also generates health and a sense of well-being, both physically and mentally. “My journey in science over the past forty-five years has convinced me that it is now more urgent than ever to show how people can avoid these tragedies. The science is there and it must be made known. We cannot let the status quo go unchallenged and watch our loved ones suffer un-necessarily. It is time to stand up, clear the air and take control of our health. “. . . almost all diet books on store shelves are variations of this one theme: eat as much protein, meat and fat as you want . . . eating this way is perhaps the single greatest threat to American health we currently face. . . "At the end of the day, the strength and consistency of the majority of the evidence is enough to draw valid conclusions. Namely, whole plant-based foods are beneficial, and animal-based foods are not. “There is no such thing as a special diet for cancer and a different, equally special diet for heart disease. The evidence now amassed from researchers around the world shows that the same diet that is good for the prevention of cancer is also good for the prevention of heart disease, as well as obesity, diabetes, cataracts, macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s, cognitive dysfunction, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and other diseases. Furthermore, this diet can only benefit everyone, regardless of his or her genes or personal disposition. “All of these diseases, and others, spring forth from the same influence: unhealthy, largely toxic diet and lifestyle that has an excess of sickness-promoting factors and a deficiency of health-promoting factors. In other words, the Western diet! “Conversely, there is one diet to counteract all of these diseases: a whole foods, plant-based diet. . . When a whole food, plant-based diet is demonstrably beneficial for such a wide variety of diseases, is it possible that humans were meant to consume any other diet? I say no, and I think you’ll agree.”NOTE: Isn’t it interesting, that Dr. Campbell, after some 50 years of scientific research into the relationship of diet to disease, ends up promoting the very same diet God gave Adam some 6,000 years ago in Genesis 1:29 and that Hallelujah Acres has been promoting for the past 23 years. Why has it taken us so long to realize that God had it right from the very beginning in Genesis 1:29, while man has had it so wrong for so long? The tragedy is that while Dr. Campbell has scientifically proven God had it right, and Hallelujah Acres has been proclaiming God had it right these many years, the majority of people have not yet heard the message, while others who have heard, have not yet heeded the message. Sadly, you will find doctors to be just as sick as the people they treat, suffering from the same physical problems as do their patients because they have been trained in disease care, rather than in health care! There is very little money to be made in health care — while disease care costs our nation trillions of dollars annually. And to top it all off – “Obama Care” is attempting to force every citizen of the United States into a system that has already proven to be a very expensive and dismal failure, while at the same time; the Hallelujah Diet (based on God’s Genesis 1:29 diet) has proven to be a very inexpensive impressive success! I’m so glad that when I had my colon cancer in 1976, almost 40 years ago, I chose God’s Genesis 1:29 diet as my form of treatment rather than the conventional treatments of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery! As a result of making this simple diet change, within a year of doing something as simple as changing my diet from a meat-based to a plant-based diet, my cancer was gone and has remained gone to this very day as I just recently celebrated my 81st birthday, still cancer free! HALLELUJAH! Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high we will return with another exciting issue of the Hallelujah Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
