Quick Vegan Chili

The more and more I research diet and it's affects on cancer the more I find that our diet is truly the cause of cancer.
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"  Hippocrates

Here are the top 3 causes of death in the USA per year.
Diseases of the heart                                                    710,760
Cancer(Malignant Neoplasms)                                     553,091
Medical Care (you die from doctors mistakes)             225,400

The majority of us believe when we get heart disease or cancer it is because it's hereditary.  This is only a small part of the whole picture.  This can increase your odds of becoming ill if you don't take care of yourself both physically and mentally.  All the latest studies confirm that a high percentage of people who have cancer are physically unhealthy or/and have had psychological trauma in there life that has manifested itself and made it impossible for inner peace to exist.  And when the two are combined it makes the possibility of cancer almost inevitable.
I am sitting at my desk right now surrounded by wireless devices (2 cell phones, Kindle, Macbook and ani-pad) that transmit and receive radio waves, a form of radiation.  In the USA, it is estimated that 330 million people use cell phones.  In the world 5 billion.  Our tissues can absorb this energy over time and proximity to the body.  No studies have yet to confirm the direct relationship between wireless devices and cancer but I personally believe that if you combine prolonged use of these wireless devices with unhealthy eating habits, little or no exercise and inner stress your chances of having a cancer tumor grow somewhere in your body is more likely than not.  We all have cancer cells in our bodies.  It is up to us what we do with them.  Eating healthy is your personal responsibility to yourself to keep those cancer cells contained and under control.  So jump on that healthy food wagon and show to yourself that you love yourself by eating right!
