Bad health habits are the reason why cancer patients get sick.  

And when they have cancer they still make these mistakes which are the reason why they don't get better.

In this blog post, I'm going to talk about the 11 most common mistakes cancer patients do that make it impossible to heal.

So let's examen what stop you from getting well.

11 Mistakes That Cancer Patients Do That Make It Impossible to Stop Cancer

Mistake 1: Doing Conventional Treatments For Cancer

It's common to follow the traditional route to treating cancer. Orthodox treatments methods include chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. These methods are toxic to the body and don't address the underlying cause of disease.

Chemo for example only has an average cure rate of 2% according to a large study. It has never given positive results and is toxic.

Toxic chemo drugs

Chemo drugs are poisons with life-threatening side effects

Nurses need to wear gloves when they handle chemo drugs. How can you heal cancer if the substance you give cancer patients destroy their organs? While chemo kills cancer cells, it also damages healthy cells.

Chemo still exists because of greedy companies that don't want to give up their income. It has never proven to stop cancer and is dangerous.Read more about the devastating effects of chemotherapy here.

Radiation is another dangerous treatment method. Radiotherapy is carcinogenic(causing cancer).

You can observe the devastating effects of radiation by looking at the evidence. The evidence includes:

  • Studies of atomic bomb survivors
  • Victims of the Chernobyl nuclear accident
  • People treated with high doses of radiation for cancer
  • Uranium miners workers

I already talked about the dangers of cancer radiation in my previous blog post here.

Cancer surgery can't cure cancer. Surgery treats the symptoms and not the underlying causes of disease. It's a quick fix that cannot hinder cancer from regenerating.

Women that do mastectomy don't have higher survival rates than women that opt out of surgery. Surgery is useless when cancer spreads to different parts of the body. Read my comprehensive blog post about surgery here.

By not doing these treatments you increase your chances of survival. But fixing this problem is useless if you make mistake number two.

Mistake 2: Eating Animal Products

Humans are not meant to eat meat. Our stomach acid is only 1/20 as strong as carnivores like lions and tigers. It takes a lot of effort for the body to digest meat. Most of the flesh leave the stomach undigested and then move to the colon where it rots.

Meat promotes cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Countries with a higher intake of fat have more incidence of cancer.

Humans have lived on a plant based diet for thousands of years and been lean. Eating meat is a rather new phenomenon. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes skyrocketed when humans began to consume animal products.

Bacon, eggs and meat

Animal products are some of the worst things you can feed your body

You can get all your nutrient needs from a vegan diet. Meat is like putting regular gas in a diesel car. When you give your body what it needs, it will work as intended.

If you want to recover from cancer, then drop all animal products. Animal products include all meats and dairy products like butter, yogurt, and milk.

To learn more, please read my previous blog post about the importance of a vegan diet here.

By eliminating meat, you have taken a huge step in the right direction. But there is still one thing you have to fix if you want to improve your health even more.

Mistake 3: Eating Processed Food

We forget that we aren't any different from our ancestors that lived thousands of years ago. Even if we have smartphones and live in modern cities, our physiology is still the same.

Your body doesn't know how to handle human-made foods. Processed food is not real food. Processed food include pre-packaged, preserved, refined, microwavable and tinned foods.

Avoid foods that have a long shelf life, are take away, fast, meat, dairy, and frozen.

Other bad stuff is cakes, chips, burgers, tinned soup, granola- or chocolate bars. Pasta, ice cream, and white bread are other things to look out for.

Fast food and processed food are toxic to the body

Avoid processed or fried oils, saturated animal fats, hydrogenated oils and trans fats.

All vegetable oils are bad. Fats from processed foods cause heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Extra virgin olive and coconut oil are also bad for you.

Get all your fats from whole foods. Believe it or not but most vegetables contain fats. If you enjoy olive oil eat olives. Replace coconut oil with coconut and so forth.

The prepackaged food we buy today contains tons of toxic chemicals.

If you want to stop cancer, you have to throw away all junk food from your diet. Eat only food from mother nature and stop eating food created by man.

Please read my article about the alkaline diet to learn how to eat a more clean diet.

Fixing your diet increases your chances of survival. But even if you correct your diet there is still a problem that you have to solve. I talk about that in mistake number 4.

Mistake 4: Worry And Stress

Stress has a huge negative effect on your health. Worry and anxiety release stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol in your body. These stress hormones play a crucial role when you're in real danger and need to hide from a threat.

Your body can handle a little stress if needed. The problem is that your body can't see the difference between a real situation from a false one. Prolonged stress will have a detrimental effect on your body if you keep doing it.

In my other blog post, I talked about the emotional cause of cancer. Cancer patients have unresolved emotional issues from childhood. Because of that their stress levels are higher than normal.

Cancer manifests as they reach their emotional limit. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer interviewed and examined thousands of cancer patients.


Anxiety is detrimental to your health

He found out that everyone had traumatic experiences leading up to cancer. If you want to learn more, please read my blog post about cancer and stress here.

You need to reduce all sources of toxicity to lower your cancer risk. Screenings methods like mammography and CT-scans lead to more cancer. Please read the next section with full attention.

Mistake 5: Doing Mammography Screening or CT-scans

Mammography may cause women more harm than good.

One mammogram exposes you to as much radiation as you would get from 1,000 chest X-rays.

It uses radiation at a high dose, which leads to mutations and breast cancer.

Not only are mammograms unsafe, but they don't save women's lives. Annual mammograms do not improve breast cancer survival over physical examination alone.

CT- or CAT scans produce cross-sectional images of the body using X-rays and a computer.

These scans yield higher-resolution images than regular medical X-rays. But it comes at a great cost. Ct-scans expose patients to hundreds or thousands times the amount of radiation.

Despite clear evidence that x-rays damage your body, hospitals still promote these scans.

Are you getting enough sleep every day? If you have trouble sleeping, then pay attention next. Lack of sleep makes it harder to heal from cancer.

Mistake 6: Not Getting Enough Sleep

Your body needs rest to rejuvenate and do its repair work. Sleeping in darkness is crucial to producing melatonin.

In the Nurses' Health Study they examined nurses working night shifts. What did they discover? They found out that nurses working night shifts had 36% more breast cancer than day workers.

Your body needs to recharge itself to tackle the challenges of the day. If you sleep only a couple of hours each day, you add more stress and cause further health problems.

Learn more about the importance of sleep and how to fix it, in my massive guide. Read it here.

Are you indoors most of the time? Did you know that not getting enough vitamin D from the sun increases your risk of cancer? Continue to read if you want to lower your possibility of cancer even more.

Mistake 7: Not Getting Enough Sunshine

Sunshine is essential for good health. Many people are indoors most of the time and don't get enough sunshine. Vitamin D is a hormone that you get easiest from the sun. Dietary sources of vitamin D are sparse.

Several studies show that people with lower vitamin D levels are at a greater risk of getting cancer.

Getting enough Vitamin D is essential to good health

If you want to learn more about this topic, then I have already written a detailed article about it here. In this blog post, you learn how to boost your vitamin d level and why to ditch sunscreens.

Do you exercise on a regular basis? Did you know that you can increase your survival rate if you work out? Continue to read and find out more.

Mistake 8: Not Exercising Enough

When you exercise you oxidize your cells. Cancer cells lack oxygen, so you want to do things that increase it.

One major study examined 2987 women with breast cancer. Women that walked more than one hour a week after their treatment were less likely to die of breast cancer.

If you want to take your health to the next level, then exercise more.

Learn 20 easy exercises you can do now if you have cancer. These exercises are not taxing and are fun to do.

The next mistake I'm going to talk about might seem obvious. But it is a mistake some make that contribute to more cancer.

Mistake 9: Smoking And Taking Recreational Drugs

Recreational drugs and cigarettes are pure poison. Smoking increases the risk of at least 14 types of cancers, these include:

  • Lung cancer
  • Esophagus cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Cervix cancer
  • Nose cancer
  • Mouth cancer
  • Pharynx cancer
  • Pancreas cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Bowel cancer
  • Ovary cancer
  • Sinuse cancer

Smoking leads to poor blood circulation in feets, hands, and pain. Cigarettes hinder the flow of oxygen in the body. If you have cancer, you want to increase the oxygen level not decrease it.

Other recreational drugs or substances that can increase cancer risk include:

  • Marijuana
  • Khat
  • Cocaine
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Methamphetamine/crystal meth
  • MDMA

If you're smoking and want to end this bad habit, please read the book Easy Way To Stop Smoking by Allen Carr. Click here to buy the book.

One common mistake many people do is to drink alcohol. If you're an avid drinker, then read what I'm going to tell you next.

Mistake 10: Drinking Alcohol

Alcohol is toxic to the body. When you drink alcohol, your liver has to work on overdrive to get rid of all toxins. Alcohol is acidic and not something you need to consume.

More alcohol consumption increases the risk of developing alcohol-associated cancer.

About 3.5% of cancer deaths in the United States 2009 were because of heavy alcohol use.

If you drink alcohol you increase the risk of getting these cancers:

  • Head and neck cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer

Ditch alcohol and you will be on a better way to good health.

If you have problems with giving up alcohol, then please read this book here.

So now you reached the last mistake people make that create more cancer.

Mistake 11: Amalgam Tooth Fillings And Heavy Metal Pollution

Heavy metals are one of the most toxic things on earth. Amalgam tooth fillings increase your risk of cancer.

Amalgam fillings contain 50% mercury. Mercury is the most toxic natural substance on earth. Only plutonium is worse than mercury.

Mercury evaporates and releases inside your body. Sources of heavy metal exposure include beauty products, fish, cigarettes and car smog.

Reducing heavy metal exposure is important if you want relief from cancer. Discover more about heavy metal exposure by reading this blog post.
