‘There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.’
This was explained to me 10 years ago by a master nutritionist.

I believed this then and I am happy to see that modern science is catching on to this important fact. We live in a terribly toxic world and limiting your exposure to these toxins in the fo0od and water we consume, the air we breath and the environments we live in should be a major priority in our lives. – dg
