Environmental Radiation

According to a 1991 EPA study, there is growing evidence of a link between heavy electrical currents and cancer. Studies in recent years have suggested a higher incidence of leukemia and brain tumors among people exposed to electrical fields on the job. A 1987 study found that children living near electrical power lines faced five times the risk of all forms of cancer compared to children who did not. Even more disturbing, is the fact that ordinary household appliances generate larger overall electromagnetic fields (EMF's) than power lines, even the 500 kilovolt long distance power transmission lines, Although the appliance EMF's drop off after roughly sisteen feet, many people stand or sit closer than five meters to their appliances.

In addition, there is concern about people who live or work near nuclear power plants. In the United Kingdom, a higher rate of leukemia has been reported in children living near nuclear facilities. Another study of over 8,000 men working at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, who were exposed daily to EMF's, found that they had a much higher risk of cancer, particularly leukemia. Radiologists have also historically had higher incidences of cancer, as have other workers exposed to low-dose radiation.

Solar radiation. or sunlight, particularly ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B), is another common carcinogen, accounting for over 400,000 skin cancers a year. Fortunately, most of these are curable, with only a small percentage developing into truly dangerous melanomas.

Dental Factors and their link to Cancer

Alternative health practitioners knowledgeable in energy medicine and biological dentistry have noted for some time a link between dental problems and degenerative illness. When a tooth is infected or otherwise affected, it can block the energy flow along one or more of the body's acupuncture meridians, causing the deterioration of a corresponding organ or tissue, which may in time lead to cancer.

These blockages can also be caused by the use of dental amalgam material, namely the silver fillings most people have in their mouth. " These so-called silver fillings actually contain 50% mercury and only 25% silver," says Joyal Taylor, DDS, of Rancho Sante Fe, California, President of the Environmnetal Dental Association. This makes such fillings especially harmful, since mercury is a noted carcinogen, as well as having the ability to impair immune function and create blockages.

Practitioners in the field of energy medicine have been able to use this relationship between certain teeth and various organs and tissues of the body in order to diagnose cancer in it's earliest stages. Also, by removing or correcting the dental problems which may have helped lead to the cancer formation in the first place, they are able to aid in the treatment of the disease as well. In addition, dentists in the field of biological dentistry advocate the proper removal and replacement of all toxic amalgams as a preventive measure, regardless of the patient's current health.

Oxygen Free Radicals

Toxic pollution, tobacco smoke, nuclear and ultraviolet radiation, exercise, and many other seemingly disparate substances and activities can all generate damaging oxygen free radicals, which are unstable molecules that circulate within the body. Free radicals are dangerous because they are extremely potent biochemically and have a tendency to attack and destroy the fragile membranes which surround cells, making the body more vulnerable to various cancer initiators and promoters. In addition, the oxygen free radicals themselves may interact with cellular DNA causing mutations which can lead to cancer formation.

Oxygen Deficiency

One of the most well known theories of cancer causation was originally put forth by two-time Nobel laureat, Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, a bio-chemist who won his first Nobel Prize in 1931 for his discovery that oxygen deficiency and cell fermentation are part of the cancer process. " From the standpoint of the physics and chemistry of life, the difference between normal and cancer cells is so great that one can scarcely picture a greater difference," Dr. Warburg wrote almost half a century ago. " Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by an energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely, a fermentation of glucose."

According to Dr. Warburg's theory, when cells are deprived of oxygen, they can become "primitive" and enter into glucose reactions, deriving energy, not from oxygen, as normal plant and animal cells do, but rather from the fermentation of sugar. It is also a much more inefficient method, as the rapid reproduction of the cancer cells uses up large amounts of glucose, breaking it down into lactic acid, a waste product which puts a severe drain on the body. This also causes an imbalance in the body's acid/base ratio, or PH level. As the acidity of the body rises, it becomes even more difficult for the cells to respire (use oxygen) normally. Medical studies have shown that cancerous tumors contain as much as ten times more lactic acid than healthy human tissues.

One possible reason for the dramatic increase in cancer rates over the past several hundred years, according to Dr. Warburg's theory, may be the dwindling oxygen supply brought about by rampant deforestation, exploding population, and the burning of fossil fuels. By contrast, according to this same oxygen deficiency theory, cancer cells cannot exist in an oxygen-rich environment. Therefore, if sufficient oxygen is provided, the frenzied glucose fermentation stops and normal aerobic, or oxygen, respiration returns.

Geopathic Stress

" While it is well known that the Earth has a magnetic field, it is much less well known that there is a vertical field going from the ground up to the sky," says Anthony Scott-Morley, MD (Hon), PHD of the Institute of Bioenergetic medicine in Dorset, England. " It has been assumed that the vertical field holds the same intensity throughout fairly large areas, " continues Dr. Scott-Morley. " Actual readings with the magnetometer, however, indicate wide variability in filed strength within short distances. It is thought that this variability constitutes geopathic stress, in which the body is unable to adapt to the large changes in field strength within short distances (there can be be 40,000-70,000 nanotesla in just six inches), leading to a disruption of homeostasis, acoording to Dr. Scott-Morley. " Ionizing radiation from the Earth is another form of geopathic stress," Dr. Scott-Morley adds . " This can be given off by certain types of rock structures such as granite. "

In 1971, the theory of geopathic stress was supported by investigations of such disturbed geological areas which showed the presence of gamma rays, soil radiation which are hazardous to a person's health. The investigations also showed that subterranean water flows, especially water flows that crossed, produced measurable increases in magnetic anomalies, in electrical conductivity of the soil and air, in acoustics, in field strength of UHF waves, and in the intensity of infrared radiation.

While these geopathic stress sites can be very small, "perhaps no more than ten inches by ten inches," according to Dr. Scott-Morley, medical researchers in the United States and Europe, have linked them to the development of many serious illnesses, including cancer and birth defects. One large scale study published by the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare in 1979, reported that geopathic stress may be a factor in between 40 and 50% of all human cancers, accounting for between 60 and 90% of all cancers attributed to environmental radiation.

Geopathic stress in home and work environments is a key factor in the onset of disease, as well as in the failure of some patients to respond to treatment. Yet, because geopathic stress zones can be so small, merely relocating a bed or a desk can have dramatic results, according to Dr. Scott-Morley.

To locate geopathic zones, the services of a "dowser" can be employed. A dowser uses a forked stick as a measuring instrument to search out these areas in the home or office which are being affected by geopathic stress. Referals to dowsers can generally be found by contacting well drillers, who often make use of their services to locate underground waterbeds.

In addition to these rudimentary "divining rods", measuring instruments have been developed in Germany (such as the geomagnetometer which record the existence of geopathic stress. This will remove the element of human error associated with a measurement being taken by the person doing the dowsing.
