I was outraged today at so called Doctors saying Breast Cancer is now 1 in 8 ladies, and the reason they have come up with is lifestyle. What a load of rubbish, there is no substance to this what so ever it is an assumption. Lets face it, they still have no idea what causes it, therefore to blame it on lifestyle is ludicrous.
I have always had a fairly healthy diet, never been over a size 12, never smoked, drank in my twenties but gave up in my thirties and have always exercised. What would they have proposed that I do differently? I ran the London Marathon in 2006, may be I should have done another one and then it would not have happened? There is no history of it in my family. I am a complete random.
What dissapoints me is the medical industries way of dealing with it is to cut it out and throw aload of drugs at it. Through my experience and with the help of my reflexologist my belief is that Cancer is related emotional links of cells in the body. I feel that it happened to me for a reason and it was about rediscovering myself. It is a hard one to go through but I am now mentally stronger and have a completely different perspective on certain aspects of life. For instance I would have never got into writing or become a blogger. Everything in life is about your own perspective on things.
