Lifestyle Choices

Lifestyle is a complicated thing to blame for our rapidly increasing exposure to disease of all types but when we start doing the analysis it becomes patently clear that it is involved. To a large extent it does depend where you live. So we will discuss as many aspects as we can and then allow the comments to build up for and against lifestyle since 2000. I think the worst areas are the cities where polution is at an all time high and of course the oxygen in the air is apparently low anyway compared to levels a century ago. Polution is toxic including vehicle exhausts, plastics, furniture and wall finishes, cosmetics and cleaning products, clothing, farm chemicals, weedkillers and motor vehicle finishes. We are now possibly exposed to over 82,000 chemicals in use today.

It is clear thay living in a city it is hard to avoid many of these chemicals used by others even if we decide not to use any. here is where the choices come in. You can do the research and find which chemicals need to be avoided more than others and always remember that we are the guinea pigs. It is very easy for a chemical to be used in all sorts of industries where it is presumed safe until proven otherwise. Asbestos is more a mineral but was once presumed safe and there are thousands of chemicals which fall into this category. Obviously the higher the level of avoidance the better. And this applies specifically to cleaning products and cosmetics. Plastics is another where a test can be done at specific temperature then you leave fluid in a plastic bottle in a hot car where it reaches 45 or more degrees. Many of the chemicals are then passed on into the fluid and so into our metabolism.

The choices also apply to the food chain and again it is a lifestyle thing. Clearly junk food comes out on top of the Grim Reaper Stakes. There is very little competition here. Saturated fats, sugars and highly processed flours including gluten. What more could you ask for? Most food is cooked or processed these days and so contains only macronutrients such as protein, fats, carbohydrates etc but almost no micronutrients which are normally destroyed by cooking and processing.

One of the major factors in this problem has included migration from Europe over the last centuries to subtropical climates in Africa, America and Australia. In most cases European cooking styles and methods are still used with less benefician ingredients. Sub tropical inhabitants traditionally ate a high percentage of raw foods. Then of course add to this scenario the fact that almost all indigenous groups have added sugars and processed flours to their average diet. It is all backward.

Last but not least the least understood aspect of lifestyle is the EMF frquuency invasion and there is every chance that for our subject matter here in cancer that there will be a list of carcenogenic effects.
