    Whitewashing Causation ... Epigenetics is the 95% Key ...

    "You are what you eat" is an old saw. What you are actually eating is not necessarily what you think. Today's food can actually weaken your immune system if you eat thoughtlessly or as you have been carefully taught. It ain't your Grandma's table any more.

    That some people may still believe that genetics is a huge cause of cancer or that bad habits make for sick people is a corporate blinder that has carefully been fitted over folks' heads.

      This is only going to get worse. The only questions the EPA asks is "Will it make a profit, I believe they still do crop dusting with airplanes in some areas. Even is they don't spraying like in the picture will blow to the neighboring crops I know some organic farmers who complain about the wind blowing pesticides over their crops. We need to demand more regulation

      Trump has taught us that the regulations don't work. I just discovered that the EPA was founded by Nixon! I don't want a toe tagging agency that only helps corporate citizens. We need a real government & we need full reorganization.

      The midterm elections are important. Planting a garden anymore means you are a revolutionary. Everything is backwards and upside down.

      I have had a super strong immune system for all of my life. When I was getting chemo, my blood levels never tanked. When everyone around me was sick, I wasn't (though I worried I would be). My WBC was always high for unknown reasons besides the fact that I have a strong immune system. I eat a lot like it was my grandmother's table .. except not as healthy because we don't raise most of what we eat like she did.

      LiveWithCancer, I feel somewhat like you do. I have a strong immune system and also did not get ill with chemo and had few problems following surgery and radiation. However, I think that there must be something affecting our immune system that allowed us to get cancer and for me to also have Chronic Ebstein Barr virus and Hashimato's Disease.
