Malignant Tumor – The Ever-Hovering Fatal Invader!
That smartphone in your hand! How many minutes can you stay away from it? Do you know radio-frequency waves emitted by your phone have the potential of stimulating cancerous cells, God forbid, in the brain or near the spinal cord? The microwave oven, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a bunch of IoT-based home automation devices use radio-frequency as the backbone of their functionality.
The non-stick cookware you use daily in your kitchens contains a coating of Teflon to avoid food from sticking in the pan. Do you know heating such non-stick cookware at 300⁰C produces fumes that contain tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) which is a possible cause of cancer according to The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)?
According to the National Institute of Cancer, Acrylamide – not only found in cigarette smoke but is also present in many food items including French fries, bread, cookies, breakfast cereals, and coffee – is also the leading cause of cancer.
Stimulators have Sneaked In – The Trojan Horse Ambush!
Your shampoo might contain paraben. That concealer you use might contain asbestos. Your eyeshadow and hair dye might contain coal tar dyes. Your lotion, your raincoat, your nail polish, your perfume, your food packaging, your house paint and even toys for kids may contain phthalates which is one of the most prominent causes of cancer.
Is There a Working Solution?
How to be safe when everything you surround yourself with can be a cause of cancer?
Even some cancer therapies like chemotherapy and radiation therapy may increase contribute to vulnerabilities of the patient’s body exposing him/her to another type of cancer in the future.
Is it IMPOSSIBLE to be safe in today’s Artificial World?
NO, indeed not impossible!
There is one simplest way out of all these complexities.
Fasting – The Promising Solution!
Yes fasting for a minimum of 12 hours a day for at least 20 to 25 days a year helps to boost the immune system and has been proved to be effective against cancer cells.
Yoshinori Ohsumi won the Nobel Prize (2016) for his work on recycling and renewal of a cell’s contents by a process called autophagy. He discovered that mutation in the genes causes diseases but organisms – from single-cell to complex, including humans – can rely on fasting to activate autophagy. It only requires fasting for only 20 to 25 days a year to keep your body from cancerous cells or tumor stimulators.
Scientists believe that fasting activates autophagy in humans which reduces inflammation, controls sugar levels and improves brain functions. It is also believed to be the reason for the long life in people of Ikaria because they observe 150 days of fasting a year.
Dr. Thomas Seyfried in Cancer as a Metabolic Disease maintains that the majority of cancer cells have damaged metabolism that means they need more glucose than normal cells to make ATP energy packets or they can use glutamine, a natural amino acid to make more ATPs. Fasting reduces both glucose and glutamine in the body making it tougher for cancer cells to survive. There is growing evidence that fasting not only prevents but also helps in the treatment of cancer.
Seeing the benefits of fasting I believe soon medical practitioners will start recommending fasting in conjunction with occasional medicinal treatments for cancer.
Besides this, fasting has also been proven beneficial in controlling sugar levels. A case study in 2017 showed that patients with Type-2 Diabetes observed fasting for 24 hours 2 to 3 times a week over 4 months. They no longer required insulin therapy for the next 2 months after practicing this routine. It promotes cell regeneration, protects the blood against the harmful effects of chemotherapy and improves the quality of life in cancer patients.
Research shows that short term fasting protects the body from toxicity and activates stem cells of the immune system which enhances efficacy against chemotherapy.
6 out of 10 commandments publish by Harvard newsletter to avoid cancer can be fulfilled by simply fasting which includes avoiding smoking, avoid drinking, proper diet, proper exercise, proper sleep and stay lean.
The Divine Has The Final Say!
Fasting has been practiced for centuries and is one of the common practice among various religions. Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Jews, and Hindus practice fasting. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam in which adult Muslims abstain from eating and drinking to share the hunger and thirst of the needy as a reminder of their religious duty to help others.
But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.The Holy Qura’an – Chapter 2 (Al-Baqrah) Verse 184
Monique Tello, a practicing physician gave a similar statement about fasting in her recent publication in Harvard health blog that timing of fasting is the key, if practiced properly it can help not only to reduce weight but will also prove effective in preventing diabetes.
