Warm Lentil Soup with Mixed Vegetables and Asian Flair

Why are women at high risk of breast cancer never given a diet option when using diet is an effective treatment of already-diagnosed diseases has been well documented in human studies?  Or for that matter any one at risk of cancer.  And for that matter any degenerative disease.  When will Hippocrates saying become reality, "Let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine"  Well it sure as hell won't be thy medicine when all of it becomes GMO's.  I have heard that 70% of the food in the USA are GMO's.  Did you know that?  Do you care?  Here in Europe they have stopped importing any corn or soybeans from the USA because they are GMO's.  Here in Europe there have been huge protests against GMO's.  But in the USA very few.  And I bet the majority of Americans don't even know what a GMO is.  Why?  Because it is hidden from the consumer.  It is hidden because Americas largest lobbyists want it that way, and get it that way, because if it ain't that way, then their powerful advertising dollars will be pulled.  So the articles are not published. The stories are not told and we remain ignorant.  As these GMO's seeds spread and consume other crops, real seeds and crops are shrinking and shrinking until possible one day, phew! all gone.  And all of this being done without ever being tested on humans.  The EEC has banned hormone treated beef from the US for 10 years now.  And why?  Because these hormones are not good for human consumption, simple.  For one, it has been shown that the use of hormones in beef can increase the risk of breast cancer in women.  And again do we care.  Not really because you don't see anything wrong with it and you won't for years until one day you have cancer and then say why me?  How could this off happened to me?  I must be unlucky.  It must be in the genes.  And then the doctors never mention diet before or after you get cancer and so you may never ever know that your diet over the past 40-50 years probably caused your cancer.   If you want to decrease your odds of not getting cancer, of not getting any degenerative disease then you must watch what you eat.  No hormone, antibiotic laced foods.  No genetically altered foods.  No artificial foods.  You have to eat whole foods that are organic and in there natural state.  You see them and know what they are.  And a simple and delicious way to do that is by making this easy and super tasty meal.
