Is Cancer Genetic? What Causes Cancer?

Causes of cancer. Is cancer genetic?...It has been estimated that only about 5-20% of cancer causes can be traced to genes. However, I'm not a medical professional, so let's hear what some have said about the relationship between cancer and genetic.

Prosperitydoc wrote: No. Cancer is not genetic. Cancer is a label in Western Medicine used for many things. Regardless of what they call it or where it is located in the body one does not catch cancer. One develops Cancer over a long period of time. Today it is being called one of the "Lifestyle" diseases along with Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Stroke and Heart Disease.

One does not catch these diseases, they are developmental diseases--they grow overtime in the body. How? Stress and diet! Breast Cancer - stress and diet! Consider that just recently diet had little value in Western Medicine, as long as you don't have a disease your diet didn't matter. However, once you have one of these diseases you are given a restrictive diet and drugs.

Prevention is the easy cure. Start with knowing the difference between "real food" and chemicals called food. We've been duped into believing better living through chemicals, but not in our foods! All refined, reconstituted things from refined white sugar to Splenda are not food - they are chemicals. Real sugar is in it's natural state is not white and found in fruit and vegetables.

Pomegranates, blackberries and blueberries have real sugar. It is called complex-carbohydrates. An orange has real Vitamin C, which is used in cancer therapies. Butter is a food and margarine is a chemical - a roach won't eat it. Margarine is a wax, don't throw it away - use it to wax the tires on your car. Read the label on bottles and packages.

If you can't pronounce it, it probably is not a food. Be ware of word like reconstructed and reconstituted - it is no longer a food. It is a chemical - free radicals destroying your cells. It is the chemicals that you eat knowing or unknowingly that grow cancer. We'll discuss stress another time."
And now from some of the top cancer researchers:

Contrary to popular opinion, cancer takes several decades to develop in humans. Given this long incubation period, science can show us the way to destroy any initial pre-cancerous cells and keep the cancerous ones from causing widespread damage.If you think cancer has a genetic basis, then think again. Dr Robert A. Weinberg of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the world's leading cancer researchers and discoverer of the so-called oncogene (cancer-causing gene), reversed his previous conclusions after discovering that "fewer than one DNA base in a million appears to have been miscopied". It's not enough of a defect!

His exact words: "Something was very wrong. The notion that a cancer developed through the successive activation of a series of oncogenes had lost its link to reality." He called the genetic discoveries made thus far "sterile". The prime cause of cancer is therefore not genetic. This was announced in 1998.

From the Committee on Diet Nutrition, and Cancer:

"The differences in the rates at which various cancers occur in different human populations are often correlated with differences in diet...when people migrate from one country to another they tend to acquire the pattern of cancer that is characteristic of their new home...For example, blacks and Japanese residing in the United States develop the spectrum of cancers that is typical for the United States but different from that in Africa and Japan."
