Prevention is Better than Cure October 2011
I recall a proverb, "Its the bitterest medicine that does the most good". There are few bitter medicines now as most are loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners. But, this is leading to the fact that I have a bitter pill for you this month. Something to look forward to.

As I was making notes for this letter some weeks ago I was contemplating a local newspaper's thoughts on Daffodil Day - "part of the NZ fabric for 21 years now." We are told it is an iconic occasion on many people's agenda - The New Zealand Cancer Society's collection day. "This Spring flower symbolizes the hope that keeps the one in three New Zealanders affected by cancer going." How tragic that no one asks why in those 21 years the rate of cancer victims has more than doubled to one in three! I am not opposed to donating to hospice care as we need to meet the needs of victims, but every dollar we give to cancer research is a dollar we are not using to protect ourselves and our families. If we would change our focus, we would soon see the day when we had little need of hospice care!
The cancer war is still on! Many of us are aware that US President Richard Nixon is the 'Commander in Chief' who started the war on cancer. More accurately 'was' as it all happened in the 1970's! As any supreme leader would do, he gave total authority and supplied unlimited funds to his troops. As may often be the case, we don't really know if he was clear who was fighting what. But, for us the dust has settled now and anyone who wants to can get a very clear understanding of the whole situation.
Cancer is not the enemy. - It is the weapon!
The two sides in the conflict are: - The plebs, the peons. or Mr. Everyman. And in the White and Blue corner: - The Drug Cartels!
There is no other expanation for the wildly escalating cancer rates but that everything to do with established cancer research and drugs is about the rich getting richer and the poor getting - cancer!
But time for a change of thought.
One of the questions that has come back to me has been, "Are you going to talk about the Alkaline to Acid balance in your book?" The answer in a word - YES!
Most people in the west have a diet that is far too acidic! We are not taking about the acid levels in the food, but the 'ash' residue that it leaves in our system. Sweet foods actually raise acid levels, while the foods that we might tend to think of as acidic raise alkaline levels.
Have a look through these lists and consider if a bad Ph level might be causing you problems.
Sorry, but there we have to leave it. If you want that 'bitter pill' - ie. If you want to have the full letter emailed to you, fill out the form at the top and hit submit.
Have a great month,
ps. Talk about acid levels - I have just done some numbers on a Time magazine,'Briefing'. 'Americans are eating 70,675,200 hot dogs every day this summer'. (2011) Now that works out to nearly two a week for every man woman and child! You would not eat that over preserved lump of fat, and all that white bread, but pass this on to your friends who do.
