Two Radical ‘Brave Choices’ to Prevent Cancer: Voluntary Mutilation or Clean Living

photolibrary_rf_photo_of_colorful_foodsThe Organic Prepper


Just the mention of the word causes an immediate wave of fear through young and old, rich and poor, men and women.   The disease is no respecter of persons.

How far would you go to lower your risk of cancer?  

If you are one of a growing number of women, you might go as far as to have a preventative double mastectomy.

Today the media is applauding the “medical choice” of Angelina Jolie, who has joined celebrities Sharon Osbourne and Miss America contestant Allyn Rose in having both of her healthy breasts removed.  Much is being discussed about her “bravery” in undergoing this procedure “proactively”.

I’m personally appalled by this action, and I know my opinion won’t be a popular one.  Particularly in the case of Angelina Jolie, I am disturbed, because of the influence she has.  She is a beautiful woman, a very popular celebrity, and a UN ambassador.  Her influence is broad – many people respect her activism, and for that reason, I am fearful that many other women will consider this to be a wise course of action.

Mutilating your healthy body by undergoing a series of traumatic, invasive surgeries does not sound like good preventative care to me.  It sounds like a very expensive, self-mutilating reaction to tests that say you “might” have a health issue in the future. No matter what the percentages are that you could develop cancer in the future, the fact remains that you are removing parts of your body that are currently healthy.

Breast cancer has become a multi-billion dollar industry, with all of the “Think Pink” products available in stores, the Run for the Cure races, and the celebrity pleas for donations.  An estimated $6 billion per year has been collected from the well-meaning purchasers of all that pink gear and only a small portion of it has actually made its way to the researchers.

Now we can add voluntary surgery to the profit side.  The scare tactics from the “Think Pink” crowd have hysteria over this terrible disease at a fever pitch.  Throw in a few beautiful people having their bodies mutilated “preventively” and easily influenced, frightened women will hop on-board.

All of this has to do with normalizing something that should be anything but normal.  Cancerous tumors growing inside your body should not be a common thing, but these days, it is.

The President’s Cancer Panel, a three-person panel that reports to the U.S. president on the National Cancer Program calculated that 41% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes.  If you’re male, the chances are 1 in 2 that you will be diagnosed with some type of cancer, and women have a 1 in 3 chance of hearing the diagnosis.

Global Cancer Statistics for 2011 study names cancer as the #1 killer in the western world and #2 in developing countries.

In 2000, prominent holistic researcher and practitioner Burton Goldberg addressed the US Senate regarding the increased incidence of cancer:

“A century ago, one in 33 people had cancer; today, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), it is more than one in three, and growing. When I was born in 1926, cancer was the tenth leading cause of death among children – now I am 73 and it is second. No other health topic today has the urgency of cancer because no other health condition is escalating as fast.”

The outlook is not improving, either. Despite the billions spent on cancer research, the World Health Organization predicts that deaths from cancer will DOUBLE by the year 2030.

Big Pharma, Big Agri and Big Business are getting rich off of poisoning Americans.

Instead of having a “preventative surgery” what if we tried to prevent cancer by reducing the exposure to toxins that cause cancer?  Whether or not you have the genetic markers for a disease, there are still many things that you can do to keep that disease from developing that do not include voluntary amputations.

There are steps you can take to limit your exposure to the toxins in our environment that  are proven to cause cancer.  When you do, be prepared for many people to consider your actions extreme. Interestingly enough, some of those very same people are the ones applauding the drastic measures of voluntary double mastectomies. I can’t tell you how many times I have watched people roll their eyes or scoff when I refuse to partake in things that are hazardous.  Somehow, drinking water from my own BPA-free water bottle is considered to be more extreme than someone’s “brave choice” of  having body parts removed.  Somehow, not taking my children to McDonald’s or feeding them hot-dogs and Doritos is “mean”. Making our body care products and cleaning products from wholesome, non-toxic ingredients is “silly”.

People can laugh all they want.  They can consider me dramatic and hysterical.  I am making my own “brave choice” to take care of my family by reducing our exposure to everyday carcinogens.

Be truly proactive. Commit yourself to your health and the health of your family by identifying the dangers and then go against the current of popular opinion to avoid these perils. Don’t think pink, think green.

  • Purchase organic foods as often as possible.  GMOs and pesticides are proven carcinogens.
  • Load your plate with colorful antioxidants.  Opt for organic versions of foods like berries, colorful veggies, dark chocolate, and coffee, to name a few, are loaded with powerful, cancer-fighting antioxidants.
  • Avoid processed foods. Many of the additives and preservatives featured abundantly in North America are banned in other countries precisely because of the health risks they represent.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners. Aspartame, for example, is a known carcinogen that breaks down into formaldehyde in the human body.
  • Refuse vaccines. Many vaccines contain mercury, another known carcinogen.  By the age of two, if a child has received all of the recommended vaccines, he or she has received 2,370 times the “allowable safe limit” for mercury (if there is such a thing as a safe level of poison).
  • Maintain a healthy body weight. Obesity has been linked to increased risks of cancers of the esophagus, breast, endometrium, uterus, colon and rectum, kidney, pancreas, thyroid, gallbladder, and possibly other types.
  • Exercise daily.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Consume alcohol only in moderation.
  • Limit the use of plastic in your home. BPA or Bisphenol-A are petrochemical plastics that are a major component of many water bottles, lines the inside of canned goods, and makes up the hard material of many reusable food containers, including some brands of baby bottles.
  • Select personal care products that do not contain petrochemicals. Many cosmetics and other health and beauty aids contain petrochemicals. The danger of this is their byproduct, 1,4-dioxane, a proven carcinogen.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies dioxane as a probable human carcinogen California state law has classified dioxane to cause cancer. Animal studies in rats suggest that the greatest health risk is associated with inhalation of vapors.
  • Opt for natural, biodegradable food grade cleaning products. According to the website Natural Pure Organics, the average household contains up to 25 gallons of toxic materials, most of which are in cleaning products.  When you use these cleaners, they linger in the air and on the surfaces, increasing your exposure to carcinogens as you inhale the toxins into your lungs or absorb them through your skin.

Instead of having a life-altering surgery, take steps to rid your environment of as many cancer-causing toxins as possible.  We are breathing them in, eating them, and rubbing them on our skin. While changing your lifestyle is not a guarantee against cancer, neither is surgery.

Be radical.  Make the “brave choice” of living a clean life and avoiding toxins.

  1. So, if you think you might get a cancerous brain tumor, do you have your head removed or since most Hollywood celebs have an open space between their ears, they probably don’t worry about brain cancer?

    What she did is pathetic, but its her body and if she wants to mutilate it, so be it.

    I know that there’s no way in hell I’m going to get my testes chopped off, because I ‘think’ they might become cancerous.

  2. This is the current “reasoning” behind male circumcision – the boy “might” get a urinary-tract infection – so chop off his foreskin! Unbelievable.

    There is no way to avoid all the crap in the air, the food, the water, our homes, etc. And no matter how many organic veggies we eat, no matter how well we prep, the end result is that no one gets out of here alive. Tampons I used decades ago may have prevented me from ever becoming a grandmother. I used to be so angry about this, but now I give up. I think I already have cancer. Who wants to live on this polluted earth anyway? I’m genuinely sorry I ever had children – I love them but I can’t protect them and I’ll have to leave them behind on this ruined planet. The seas, the soil, the air, the fresh water, the animals and the plants. Nice going, humans. I want off this ride!


    1. Hey Dot, I lost my wife from breast cancer back in 1994. My 27 year old daughter, who is a P.A., underwent the genetic testing and was deemed “at risk” and had both her breasts removed a few weeks ago. I cannot say I agreed with her choice as I feel lifestyle choices and proper nutrition along with the recommended nutritional supplements would have been my recommendation. I have a medical background but became disgusted with the exploitation of patients for financial gain and no longer practice for a living. Reading your comment struck me as I have had those same feelings at times. I am typing these words with tears in my eyes because I feel the same way about what has happened to our planet and have great concern about my children and grandchildren’s future. I hope you continue the fight along with the rest here on the Trenches to make this world a better place for our kids. Hang in there, we need you.

      1. Hi Millard,
        Thank you for your note. I’m sorry hear about you losing your wife, and that recently your daughter underwent this horrid mutilation to stave off the beast. That’s a sad story. I’m glad that you left medical practice for ethical reasons. I’d hate to be a doctor nowadays anyway. If I were a healer, I’d figure out a way to do it for free or for barter, like in the olden days.

        From what I’ve read (and I don’t have a medical background), the tumor is the symptom, and cutting out the symptom rarely works. What I read works is correcting the conditions that made cancer arise in the first place.

        I’ve had good luck shrinking my tumor with graviola and also drinking, every few days, baking soda mixed in water. And loads of vit c/vit d of course. I don’t smoke, I eat organic, drink raw milk, filter out fluoride, etc., but just existing here now, due to all the toxins unleashed in the last few years, is enough to get cancer.

        Sigh. I’ve made my peace with death. But I’m not ever going to take my own life. I am, however, ready to sacrifice my life to defend against tyranny. I’ve read enough Solzhenitzen to know what’s coming (but not enough to spell his name correctly, hehehe).

        Things happened so fast, though, didn’t they? 9/11 and then boom – police state. All they have to do know is close the borders, although the borders now appear to include Mexico. I’ve always wanted to visit the Yucatan Peninsula… go figure, now I won’t need a passport.


        1. Hey Dot, that is one of the rare times I will disclose very personal feelings but your comment just struck to the core of the matter with me. I lived the majority of my life looking for something that I felt was missing. I could never quite put my finger on it but I always felt something wasn’t right. I finally broke free of “the matrix” and my life has been enriched with new friends and new goals that I hope to achieve before I am put to rest. I would have liked to leave this place better than I found it but too much s**t and so little time leaves me overwhelmed at times. The good people on FTTWR have sparked a renewed determination in my will to make a difference. Thank you for your kind response and take care.

          1. Well, it is an interesting ride. Life has its high notes as well as low ones.

            This site is pretty terrific. I was so bummed when it appeared to be offline for several days. It’s a lifeline to connect with like-minded folks, that’s for sure.

            Well, keep on keeping on, Millard. I appreciated your response to my comment. Thank you for “listening.”


          2. Well Dot, I’m confident that I’ll be here to see us reinstate our constitution and dispose of the vermin currently walking the halls of congress and occupying the White House. Only then could I allow myself to enjoy watching the waves roll in on some Mexican beach. Right now, it’s time to get the ball rolling.

          3. I hope you’re right, Millard. And fyi, I want to go to the Yukatan to see the giant pyramid, not to lie on a beach. (I would spontaneously combust if I were to lie on a beach.)

    2. Dot, I lost my mother and my sister (at 33) to cancer. A little over three years ago, I had to have surgery for a collapsed lung and they had to remove a section of my upper left lung that was unsavable. I’ve been a smoker most of my life, and although I was able to quit for a few months after the surgery, I soon resumed smoking. After a few months of that I started experiencing pain in that lung, and I’m certain that I was developing cancer in that lung, although I never had it confirmed, being that I refuse to have ANYTHING to do with the so-called ‘medical’ establishment since that operation.
      I already had a dvd by G. Edward Griffin titled “A World Without Cancer” that shows how vitamin B-17 kills cancer cells. I started eating apricot kernels every day, and the pain completely disappeared. They also cured a good friend of mine’s skin cancer, and they are very inexpensive. It’s all in this article:

      1. Thanks for the link, #1. I’m so sorry to hear that you lost two loved ones to cancer and that you yourself had it, too. I myself used to smoke, and really understand the pull there. One thing I read about is that commercial cigs are made with nicotine from plants sprayed with some sort of radioactive residue on the pesticide. Try growing your own leaves – or buy organic and roll your own. I don’t think the Native Americans (who smoked, right?) died in droves from cancer.

        I totally understand your not wanting to go near a doc with potential cancer. I feel the same way – just a biopsy is likely to spread the cancer. If you’re diagnosed with the big C and refuse treatment, I imagine that they could label you mentally ill and take away your guns. that was my reasoning in not going – plus I know that conventional medicine will do nothing productive while draining all my resources and causing me lots of pain. I’d really rather die without all that.

        I’ll look into the B17 – thanks again!

        1. Thank you for the kind thoughts, dot. What they did to my family was my main incentive for writing the article. That, and to educate others so that hopefully they wouldn’t make the same mistake of trusting the so-called ‘medical’ establishment with their lives.

          The first book I read after taking the red pill was “Behold a Pale Horse”. In it, Bill Cooper talks about radioactive elements being used in the tobacco fields. I doubt it not.

      2. #1 – I used to smoke 2-3 packs a day. I was really addicted. Then I quit in 1975. Here is how: I got totally honest with myself. I told myself: if there is one good thing about smoking – I will not quit. But, if there is nothing good about smoking; then I will quit.

        Cigs did NOT “relax me” – the opposite. They did not make food taste better – the opposite. They did not make stress easier – the opposite. I did not gain tons of weight. I did go through 2 packs of certs a day as an oral replacement.

        Once I had my mind “right,” the rest was easy.

        It was really physically uncomfortable for about 3 days. Then it was over. I have not put a cig into my mouth since 12:00 AM 12/18/75. Smoked [without inhaling] one fine cigars a day [Pleiades] in 1985, but then stopped those.

        1. JM, I only smoke about a half a pack a day. The two best reasons I can think of for not smoking are the cost and cancer, so as to the cost, $20 a week I can afford. As to cancer, I don’t worry about that at all anymore since I eat the apricot kernels every day. Better yet, I no longer worry about ANY form of cancer, for that reason alone.

          Besides, I’ve never been much of a quitter. 🙂

  3. This “proactive” bravery is so insane, I don’t even know where to start. I don’t like it that this endorses or even plants the idea that this is what healthy women should be doing. Too many “breast cancer survivors” these days and I wonder how many are due to false positives or diagnoses of “precancer” that would never develop into anything. There is so much that people can do on their own to prevent or treat or even cure cancer, but instead this is the role model we should be following? Just cut them off, just in case? Crazy talk.

  4. This entire world now consists of billions of beautiful souls battling a seemingly never-ending war against a few thousand psychopaths who are attacking and killing us on hundreds of fronts.

    Specifically regarding this article, most of the population has not a clue that everything we do to better this world is merely treating symptoms brought on intentionally by the same psychopaths to kill us while making trillions of dollars in the process. Yea, like think pink…….

    Unless the root cause is attacked, NOTHING will EVER change. The root cause is the biggest hoax ever perpetuated upon this planet: Fiat, debt-based, interesting bearing currency controlled by trillionaires. Until this biggest of all big lies is deleted from our existence, I repeat : NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE. NOTHING EVER. Did I say nothing ever?

    1. @Constable – You said it right – FYI: these filthy F-king SCUM punks know they are in their end game. It IS gonna change, and very soon. The People WILL attack, I believe this year. I am signed on and ready. Then they, the enemy. will never be seen again, anywhere in the world – because we will exterminate them, AND their gene pools.

      We know who they are.

      They know we are comin’…

  5. This is like that trend where pregnant women are sexy on the cover of magazines. Remember Demi Moore starting that? Now women with no breasts are sexy. Especially if it makes sure they don’t have breast cancer. WTF!!??? How about I cut off my family jewels because I’m afraid of getting prostate cancer? Then I can finally sing Soprano! How about we have men with no brains are sexy? Oh yea, that’s called David Beckham!

    Everything that is moral is immoral and everything that is immoral is moral. Welcome to the New World Order.
