Science confirms that cancer is a man-made disease, fuelled by the excesses of modern life
The Daily Mail in an article on October 14th 2010 reports that the study of ancient remains from fossils to mummies has concluded that “Cancer is a man-made disease, fuelled by the excesses of modern life. “A review of Egyptian mummies, fossil records dating back to dinosaurs and classical literature found tumours to be extremely rare until recent times, when factors from pollution to poor diet made life more toxic.
“They discovered that the disease rate has risen dramatically since the Industrial Revolution, in particular childhood cancer – proving that the rise is not simply due to people living longer. They believe that a better understanding of the origins of cancer could lead to new treatments for the disease which claims more than 150,000 lives a year in the UK alone.” “Professor David, who presented the findings at a conference earlier this year, said: ‘In industrialized societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare. There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle. ‘The important thing about our study is that it gives a historical perspective to this disease. We can make very clear statements on the cancer rates in societies because we have a full overview. We have looked at millennia, not one hundred years, and have masses of data.’“ Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk
While I have for many years experienced in my own body how stress, mental attitude and carelessness attributed to health imbalances, I have also witnessed exceptionally quick healing processes once I mentally focused on the question what I was doing that caused a particular illness. The awareness of what was going on in my mind, such as fear or insecurity, was usually the first indicator. Other deeply embedded problems were a little more difficult to approach but once brought to light, resulted in an amazing healing experience. Also the CD ‘Body Mind Balancing: Using Your Mind to Heal Your Body’ which is part of the book with the compilation of talks by Osho on healing was very helpful, particularly in the beginning of my objective to heal myself. Nowadays I pay swift attention to physical imbalances and can thus prevent a dis-ease from setting in. Good nutrition and exercise are also extremely beneficial, a must for all of us who are on the other side of 50, and don’t forget to regenerate your brain cells by staying alert and aware and meditate. Last but not least laughter removes tension, so go to the ‘Humour’ link on this site for your daily dose! Osho says,
“A disease, any disease, first arises deep in the mind and then moves towards the body. It may take a long time to come to the body, it is a long distance. You are not aware of it when it is in the mind, you become aware of it only when it strikes hard at the roots of the body. You always feel the disease in the body, but it always originates in the mind.
You are not aware of it then, so you cannot do anything about it, but when it comes to the body then of course you start seeking a physician, some help. The physician, seeing it in the body, starts treating it in the body. It can be treated in the body – but then some other disease will arise, because the treatment has not gone to the very source. You have been changing the effect, but not the cause. If it can be changed in the mind, then the disease will disappear from the body immediately. That’s how modern research on hypnosis proves that every disease – at least in principle – can be transformed, changed, can be dropped, if the mind is changed. And the vice versa is also true: if the mind is convinced by hypnosis, then disease can be created also.
Just two or three days before, somebody sent me an article of deep significance. One man – one physician, a doctor in California – has treated many patients with cancer just through the imagination. This is the first clue which opens the door…. And not one patient, many.
What he does is he simply tells them to imagine – if they have cancer of the throat, he tells them to relax and imagine that the whole energy of their body is moving towards the throat, and the gland is being attacked by their energy. Just like arrows from everywhere, all over – moving towards the throat and attacking the disease. Within three, four or six weeks the gland simply disappears without leaving a trace behind. And cancer is thought to be incurable!
Cancer is a modern disease; it has come because of the stress, tension and anxiety of life. There has, in fact, been no cure for it up to now through the body. If cancer can be treated through the mind, then everything can be treated through the mind.
