Well partly true I guess. If you are not genetically predisposed to having one you might not acquire it if you are a vegetarian. Well for one eating too much meat are said to be one of sources of carcinogens if taken in large amounts. Another source of carinogens are the sweet foods and sometimes from the environment like pollution, smoking, etc. Eating lots of veggies on the other hand can stop this from staying in your body as some veggies does have some nutrients that fight this bad cancer cells when they are just developing in your bodies. As for me, I think just eat balance diet, it doesn't have to be pure vegetables if you still want to eat meat.

Actually there are many nutrients found in veggies that have found to have an anti cancer properties. For example in Tomatoes you can get phytochemicals, in Brocolli they do have antioxidants that gets rid of many free radicals in your body.

"She wasn't.." Stuborn , you mean? This is why we must cure the emotional injure first then it will help to kill the real disease. I read a book that says; any inside disease (not including viruses and flu) the person it self responsible for that incoming. Emotional interaction, un happy condition, also help the disease grow. we our self, can also cure the disease just by believing : It will be gone/cure. So, even though what ever she eat, medicine, doctors, examine,and test-test-test, If she don't believe its works, to help her cure, she will not cure. Then the problem is, how do we convince her that she, her self can cure her disease? From this book i also read that our palms have energy to cure our disease, it's called Inside Power Healing. I can only show you that, When she touch her body at wherever she feel sick, feel the warm of the hand, and pray, in Islam, Al-iklhas, Al-Falaq, An-Nas 3 times, In beliving that this warm energy are from Allah Almigty, He bring the disease also will cure the disease, A strong believe that this cancer day day day will smaller then gone. She must have strong believe, and think that : this disease already gone when she said the pray. She command this disease to gone. Then it will gone.

Well maybe it is true because we know that vegetable are the best sources of nutrients. And according to research too much eating meat especially those burn meats like barbeques are one of the main resouces of carcinegous that your body could recieve.

I do not believe that for one minute. Did you know that sugar plays more of a role? Studies show that excess sugar ( a can od soda has 6-10 tsp of sugar in it) lowers your resistance. Starches turn into sugar. So eat natural food, eat meats that are NOT grain fed but grass fed. Processed foods are the killers.
