One thing to keep in mind in all of this is that everybody has cancer right now. In other words, there are cancerous cells in the human body of every person who is living and breathing right now, at this very moment. All you have to do to get diagnosed with cancer is make sure your immune system is sufficiently suppressed so that your body can't take care of the cancerous cells on a regular basis. In other words, if you destroy your immune system function through poor nutrition, nutrient depletion, smoking, lack of sunlight and lack of physical exercise, then it won't be able to do its job of cleaning up cancerous cells around the body and as a result, cancer will become a full-blown disease in no time.

By no means will diet and exercise, and not smoking, prevent cancer, but they sure will curb your chances of getting it.

The notion that overdoing the sun won't harm you is crap; proven to be crap by my family, and by others I know. Not taking precautions to limit sun exposure will cause cancer.

As far as I know, UVA cant cause any damage to us in terms of cancer. Its the UVB and UVC that is deadly. The holes in the ozone layer and the thinning of the ozone layer in general around th world is whats causing sunlight to be dangerous to our health.
I'd say 50 years ago you could stand out in the sun for countless hours and not get skin cancer.
how many holes are there then?
i thought it was just at the poles?

Only 2mins a day in the sun huh. Then how come if I don't spend at least 1hr a day in the sun I start to get hayfever, skin irritations, my eyes start getting dry n bloodshot, I loose weight n become overall sick as a dog? The way I see it, from the moment you're born, you're dying. Ok, so I stay out of the sun, eat healthy and don't get cancer...instead I die of a heart attack. Ok, so now I work out, keep fit, stay out of the sun, eat healthy, don't die of cancer or a heart attack... and die of liver failure. Ok, so now I don't drink, smoke, go out in the sun, I eat healthy, I exercise regularly, I meditate, socialise to stay happy, never take drugs.....and get hit by a bus on the way to work.

I must say this, Cannabis THC cells directly injected into mice and rats had circumstantial positive effects towards the killing of cancerous cells and in some cases completly removed the cancer. Yet it is still banned
After successfully curing cancer in animals, Dr. Rife opened a clinic in 1934 which successfully cured 16 of 16 cases within 90 days. Working with some of the most respected researchers in America, as well as leading doctors from southern California, he was able to eliminate cancer viruses so that patients' immune systems could restore health.
A special research committee at the University of Southern California oversaw the laboratory research and the experimental treatments until 1939. Follow-up clinics conducted by the head of the U.S.C. Medical Committee in 1935, 1936 and 1937 verified the results of the 1934 clinic. Independent physicians using Dr. Rife's frequency generators successfully treated as many as 40 people per day during those years.
