“To Mrs. Jolie: You have the right to do with your body what you choose; I believe in the freedom of choice. But do you realize that everything else that you do in your life the smoking, the drinking, the bad foods, the stress, the fluctuations in weight; Do you realize that all that causes cancer? So, irony of ironies, you can have your healthy, completely healthy, normal breasts removed. But that doesn’t prevent other cancers from forming in your lungs, your brain, your stomach and your ovaries. Unfortunately, there will be a lot of women who follow in your footsteps,” said Gary Null on his radio talk show about Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a radical mastectomy.
One of a woman’s worst nightmares is finding out that she has breast cancer. Cancer can form in any woman’s body regardless of if your ancestors had cancer. Bad genes are not what cause breast cancer, instead an unhealthy lifestyle is what leads to cancer.
Well, you might be thinking that it’s treatable with chemo theory and radiation. Wrong! According to Gary Null and Dr. Christine Northup, chemo doesn’t really work and radiation is what causes the cancer! Now you might be wondering well what can I do to prevent cancer?
Here are some things you can do to lower the risks of cancer:
- Eating healthy- Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Stay away from too much meat, fried foods and junk food. Also avoid drinking and smoking.
- Exercise- Minimal to moderate exercise daily can help lower the risks of cancer.
- Proper amount of sleep- About 7-9 hours of sleep daily is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation.
- Stress a little less
- Avoid excessive radiation- The radiation from technology such as cell phones, is what causes cancer at times.
According to Gary Null and Dr. Christine Northup, the main reason why people get cancer is because of their unhealthy lifestyle. Angelina Jolie could’ve been proactive long before getting the double mastectomy by simply living a healthy life. Many women look up to Jolie as a role model; her actions are what some women might consider for themselves. Some doctors, such as Dr. Northup, want people to know the truth, which is that in most cases, the deciding factor of whether you are at risk of getting cancer is, you.
