Strengthen your overall immunity by ridding your body of toxins

Epidemiologists have said that environmental and lifestyle factors may account for as many as 75 percent of all cancers...

As with many other diseases, both genetic and environmental factors are involved in the cause and development of human cancers. Cancer-causing biological, chemical, and physical agents are referred to as carcinogens and are grouped into two categories. Direct-acting carcinogens are carcinogenic on their own; procarcinogens are converted metabolically into carcinogens. Procarcinogens include aflatoxin (a toxin present in certain molds), many chemical dyes, introsamines from smoked foods in the diet, and some metals, such as nickel.

Many independent factors--such as gender, diet, age, and environment--may have a role in increasing or decreasing our susceptibility to carcinogens. Normally, DNA is able to repair itself. A failure in some aspect of the repair mechanism leads to mutated DNA. Sometimes mutated DNA can remain in the repressed state, which usually means that a cancer will not develop. As long as there are enough anti-promoters (such as antioxidants), the body can repair the dame to the DNA or repress the damage enough to avoid malignancy. However, in a toxic setting, carcinogenesis can occur more easily. This is where diet comes in. When you eat foods that are poorly absorbed by your blood type, their by-products linger in your intestinal tract, creating a toxic environment.
