Cancer is everyone’s problem.

Yesterday, I received a call from Bonyen Lee of KCTV 5, wanting an on-air interview about the new John Hopkins Study. The study says that two-thirds of cancer is just ‘bad luck’. And I for one, have been trying to explain this for the last four years. I do not have any cancer in my family, and I do not have any of the genes linked to breast cancer. So, I’ve always been a bit of a marvel… until this study came out.

Oh such a huge weight off to make people see that some of us just have stronger genes, and are less likely to come up with illness, even if they are constantly using poor lifestyle habits. I would love to know how long the average person spends in Starbucks and McDonald’s drive-thru lines. You probably could have taken a month’s vacation!

Because it’s mostly ‘bad luck’, this doesn’t mean you should throw caution to the wind and just treat your body terribly. It is always such a painful thing for me to see people treating themselves so badly. Then, they have ailments and health issues. I promise, you will save money in the long run on good food, when you don’t have to make a doctor’s appointment later.

So now, this study tells us that cancer is everyone’s problem. Anyone can get it, we all have the same chance. Also, a person with the cancer gene, only has one-tenth of a chance higher than the general population of being diagnosed. So, genetics still play a tiny role… but  you don’t need to do anything drastic as far preventable surgery to avoid it, because it’s just the luck of the draw in most cases. So just eat right, reduce your stress, be positive and you will be healthier than the average person.
