One of the most important points to realize is that cancer does not manifest overnight! The process of developing a cancer in your system began after your body's defenses were no longer able to protect you. The reasons for this failure of adequate body defense mechanisms are many and varied. Here are a few: deficient diet, environmental exposure and stress.
Most people think they eat a balanced diet. That is not likely even if you follow a recommended diet as stated by the federal government. And current exposure to heavy metals (mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, copper, etc.) is hundreds of times greater than exposures in the last century.
Details, step-by-step recommendations and in-depth suggestions are available in the full CANCER chapter of the Regaining and Maintaining Your Health e-book.
