Would cancer disappear if we all took care of our bodies?

I posed this question to Spiritual Presence, and here is the answer I received.

Another question has to be answered first. This question is: What causes cancer? Here is the answer:

Cancer develops when the body confuses itself. Confusion can come from sudden causes like exposure to powerful carcinogens and from slow developing causes like tobacco and sodium nitrite. Once confusion begins, the body opens to changes in functionality, which opens the way for cancerous growths to form. Cancer takes hold when the body cannot stop its development.

There are chemical causes and nutritional causes. There are emotional causes and genetic triggers. There are also natural contributors and internal agitators.

That’s the general answer to the first question. Now for the second question: would cancer disappear if we all took care of our bodies?

Answer: The intensity and frequency of cancer would significantly reduce. Cancer would not disappear completely because of pollution, accidents (when accidents hurt the body, sometimes cancerous growths can occur), and social isolation.

Here are the things you can do to reduce your body’s confusion:

  1. Remove poisons from your life. They include (a) health treatments that list cancer as a side effect or possible side effect, (b) overconsumption of alcoholic beverages, (c) cigarettes and other tobacco products, (d) poisonous cleaning products (products that have poisonous warning labels on them), and (e) exposure to known cancer-causing sources (such as asbestos).
  2. Be aware of pollutants in your areas of home, work, school, and recreation. If you live in an area that is known to have carcinogenic aspects, and you cannot move, be sure to choose recreational activities in an area that is free of similar carcinogens.
  3. If you walk in areas with concentrated car or airplane fumes, do not linger in those areas. If you have daily exposure to these fumes, drink water before and after the exposure.
  4. The more deeply you breathe, the more your body can repair itself. Practice breathing techniques regularly. At night, breathe deeply when lying in bed before sleep to increase the rejuvenating work of sleep.
  5. Part of the body’s care of itself takes place when the body is moving. Exercise and movement are therapies for the body to prevent cancer. Attitude affects the body’s care of itself so if you dislike the exercise you have chosen to do, it will not have the same protective value as exercise you enjoy. Breathing deeply when exercising increases the protective value of the exercise. Walking is the basic exercise that provides protection.
  6. The ill effects of ingredients in processed foods are somewhat known. Don’t eat known or suspected carcinogenic ingredients. Shelf-life preservatives are not protective of the body. Eating fresh foods is best.
  7. Sitting in bed so that the stomach is a table for a book, food, or electronic device interferes with body circulation. Circulation of flows in the body is very important. Improve your posture when standing, sitting, and carrying heavy objects.
  8. Live life with more positivity. When you eat, remember to be thankful and remember to eat moderately. Focus on the parts of the body that don’t hurt rather than the parts that do (and take care of the parts that hurt rather than suffer unnecessarily). Nourish your intellect, and choose intellectual challenges that are interesting. Be kind to yourself.
  9. Protect against the sun’s rays and feel the sun on your body during the less hot times of the day. Working in buildings that have no sunlight streaming in confuses the body’s defenses. Exposure to sunlight is important.
  10. Anxiety experienced when deciding about minor issues (for example, parking the car) is immune system lowering. Releasing anxiety is healing.
  11. Doing work and engaging in life events that upset you are immune system lowering. If you can’t change the work or the life decisions, find positivity in them and release the frustration.
  12. The development of cancer can be slow. Changing one’s lifestyle when the cancer is non-apparent can decrease its growth, especially if the changes include positivity about life decisions and attitude.
  13. Clothing that is dry cleaned, disliked but worn anyway, or too constricting can contribute to immune system lowering. For people who care about the clothes they wear, the clothing should be uplifting.
  14. Spiritual connection can strengthen the body, if the connection is sincere. People who are disconnected from spirituality can be strengthened through connection to nature. The connection to “beyond oneself” is strengthening.

“Little” things that contribute to cancer


Our bodies fight off invaders all the time. Our immune systems are designed to protect us. Cancer agents enter our systems in many ways, and our immune systems must fight them off and protect us from other invaders as well. ‘Round-the-clock protection, and often we do little to thank our amazing immune systems.

Besides the immune system, there are checks and balances that work to keep us well. These checks and balances require care to perform their exacting work. They work best when the body is cared for. They struggle when the body is unwell or too accosted by invading trespassers (bacteria, viruses, etc.) and weights (like cancer agents).

Cancer can start in many places and from many causes. As explained in the blog post “??Fuck Cancer!!”:

“Cancer evades understanding because it is so evasive. It quietly enters—sometimes. It takes over enthusiastically—often. It passes through the genes—but not always. It appears to have no symptoms or it creates many symptoms. It surprises us when the young are afflicted. It is tangible and can be removed, but it can get so small that we can’t see it move on. It grows in places that defy explanation.”

We live our lives as if we won’t experience cancer’s erosion, eating as we choose, stressing our bodies, and purposely exposing our bodies to the cancer providers. When cancer strikes, we are unprepared.

“Cancer is so widespread that we should be indifferent when we hear about another case of it, and yet we react with shock and dismay when another person faces its frightening diagnosis.”

This blog post presents a list of “little” things that contribute to cancer.  Each, on its own, may not present a problem, but when combined with others and placed into a body that has an overworked immune system and an unbalanced checks-and-balances system, real health havoc can occur.

The list is in no particular order. It does not include larger cancer contributors like cigarette smoke, asbestos, and known environmental cancer agents. It is not all inclusive. The list is meant to remind us how little things can add up to big complications.

  1. Certain artificial food colorings
  2. Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners
  3. Sugar
  4. Suppressed feelings of hurt
  5. Certain hair dyes
  6. Additives that preserve color
  7. Constant fear
  8. Glue ingredients
  9. Chemicals used in preserving: sodium and potassium nitrates and nitrites
  10. Processed talc
  11. Toxic ingredients in oral hygiene products
  12. Unresolved rejection
