The book broke new ground and introduced the reader to the fact that cancer especially breast cancer was of recent origin and that it was first observed in the 17th Century of our Common Era. This went contrary to popular belief, but I stood by what I wrote namely that cancer was not an ancient disease as many claimed. Often given as proof of the ancient origin of breast cancer there were three references to swellings in the breast in ancient Egyptian writings. Having read the translated ancient texts and printed the text in the book I showed that the swellings were found on men - not women, and that the swellings were not cancerous either. People had evidently not done their homework!
A recent survey has now confirmed my findings with the examination of hundreds of mummies in ancient Egypt. The report came to the conclusion that, "evidence of cancer in ancient Egyptian texts is also "tenuous", the researchers claimed, with cancer-like problems more likely to have been caused by leprosy or even varicose veins....As the team moved through the ages, it was not until the 17th century that they found descriptions of breast and other cancers." This is exactly what I found.
Having traced the history of cancer in the opening chapters I then established through extensive documentation that cancer was a modern disease, just as the aforementioned study discovered. Indeed, I further identified that cancer had as much to do with lifestyle as the thousands of man-made chemicals that we are exposed to each day in our environment and our homes. The aforementioned study that was reported in the national press in 2010 also said that cancer was a modern man-made disease caused by the excesses of modern life and pollution levels caused by industry and that it was not a naturally occurring condition. I went further, and said that as far as breast cancer was concerned, what women wore also played a key roll in the proliferation of the disease in modern times - breast restricting garments such as the bra.
I also solved a mystery thanks to the investigative methods of Sherlock Holmes, a mystery that still continues to perplex the medical profession. Why were nuns particularly prone to the disease? In addition I also proved beyond reasonable doubt that cervical cancer is caused by the chemicals found in wood smoke (and cigarettes) and not a virus as is universally believed. In the parts of the world where cervical cancer is most prevalent, wood is used extensively for household cooking and heating requirements.
Lifestyle habits and the kind of food we eat all play a role in determining who will be prone to get breast cancer and the book puts forward a strategy for the prevention of the disease. This included describing the cancer fighting attributes of Vitamin D, now established and proven through hundreds of recent studies. But when I wrote about it people were still advised to avoid sun exposure. There is much you can do from becoming another breast cancer victim, and this is what is described in the book.
Finally, I traced the remarkable discovery of a natural herb that promised to be the allusive "Cure". It is a remarkable story that you must read. The science is sound and it is being developed by leading professors at a number of universities in the USA.
Although the book is primarily aimed at breast cancer, what is says also applies to all cancers. Reading it could mean the difference between life and death - yours! Sorry for being so blunt.
