I haven't read all the posts, but I see a recurring answer coming up. I see many are either bringing up genetic traits or hereditary traits determine
if you will get cancer.
I will speak for myself, I have only my own experience to what I am going to say.
First off, what your parents have for genetic markers, or anything to do with genetics that will show the same thing happen to you I believe is
hogwash. I read somewhere long ago, that your body will replace every cell, except I think for your brain within about 7 years. Now if you consider
the possibility that genetics is not a factor after 7 years because, now your body has been completely altered and changed by that time. So for me
this argument I hear come up is irrelevant.
This next answer is my opinion just bear with me here, I have no secondary education in genetics, just expand your mind to this possibility.
I believe just by my own understanding not going by science, that 'genetics' does not exist. Let me explain. Us watching movies like Jurassic park
for example, where they 'splice' in a gene from a frog into dinosaur DNA is only on a computer model. Nobody can see DNA, its only on a computer.
Can someone show me what a amino acid looks like? Or how bout a protein? OR how bout a chromosome? Yes, this can be done with microscopes or even very
advanced instruments that can detect this. But to me, in my opinion, DNA or 'genetics' is a whole area of pseudo science that came from that industry
for the purpose of things like this. To tell the public your 'GENES' is who you are, and thus it becomes a propaganda and brainwashing to the public
to turn to science to tell you who you are, INSTEAD of YOU saying WHO YOU ARE
. I don't care what scientist, or biologist, or geneticist tells
me about my genes. Its nonsense. I say who I am, not some scientist, and when people start to believe in themself and not some guy in a white
labcoat, I believe people will have a greater understanding of their life. If nobody can show me a gene in real time that cannot be seen by human eyes
,not off a computer model, to me its only ficticious.
Also I forgot to mention, this genetic idea is an excuse for people not to change. Here's an example. Some person will say "well my genes say I will
be fat, so there's nothing I can do." Or "My genes say I will be bald, and I cant change it." This is a HUGE problem in our society, people not
taking responsibility for themselves! To blame your genes, is an excuse. Your genes don't make who you are, you choose who you are. This gives an
excuse to the lazy of this world that "Oh I can't change this I'm just gonna accept it and not do anything about it." It's such a sad excuse it just
shocks me, all I can do is SMH. Do something about your life, don't take the easy route and blame your genes, you can change your life.
And lastly to the hereditary crowd. It explained a bit of it before but here is a little more. Do you know what you eat is nearly identical to what
your parents eat? Did you ever stop to think about it. When you grew up in your life, until you left the house or if you have even, what food did
you eat? Where did you live? Do you notice the environmental factors are nearly identical? Has anyone noticed if your parents eat the same foods,
you will most likely do the same. And also you will most likely live within the same area as your parents. I am speaking within a region. Not many
children leave their home and go to another country. How many children leave their parents for example in the United Kingdom, and then move to
Africa. They will have a completely different risk of cancer or disease compared to their parents within a short time. Therefore if your parent had
cancer, and you havent changed your diet, or region in the world, YES of course you will have a very similar risk to them. If your parents smoked all
their life and you never smoked, but they both got lung cancer what do you think the reason this is? Is it hereditary? NO, its because of the
environment you breathed cigarette tar as much as they did, so you have a similar risk to them. Its not hereditary, its just simple fact.
So in conclusion. I don't believe in genes, its 1 more pseduo science thing for us to believe the man in the white lab coat that they are smart,
therefore we are dumb and must obey every word they speak. And I don't believe if your parent had cancer, then you will to. Your diet, your
environment and your way of thinking, will determine if you get cancer, not hereditary marks such as your mother had breast cancer so I will to.
You have the choice to change, why are you believing you will get it someday? If you believe you will contract cancer like your parents, then you will
make it a possibility. Change your mind, get of the box, expand yourself, grow, fight the system. Thats all I have to say.
