It is said that  you cannot throw a brick without it landing on someone who has either had cancer or knows someone who has  cancer. The word  cancer- the emperor of all maladies  is heard  about everywhere these days .It is caused when cells multiply  well beyond control.

The cells in our body  are replaced by an orderly process of growth – the old dying cells are replaced  by new healthy cells. But when cancer strikes  there is  a mutation in the genes that are responsible for regulating the growth of cells  and keeping them healthy . The abnormal cells then divide  uncontrollably producing more and more cells , resulting in a cancerous mass . One is either  born with a cancer causing genetic mutation  or the mutation can be triggered  in the body by inflammation , hormones, certain viral infections, environmental  influences such as harmful chemicals. Nothing can be done   about  Genetic mutations   but controlling our lifestyle is in our hands as cancer is a life style related  disease .So lets focus on the preventive aspect .Here are a few ways to naturally safe guard  your family  from this dreaded disease .
