Cancer and Vaccines and Food - Oh My

In today's crazy world of information - we may be at a point of too much of a good thing can just plain be too much!!! - In the last month I have attended a "Cancer as a Chronic Disease " conference, received a recall information packet on the rotovirus vaccine and been inundated with emails and magazine articles about what foods I should and should not eat and how I should eat them. (Some suggestions actually promote eating at midnight when the moon is full and the clouds are aligned in a circular pattern.)  Okay, not really but some of you believed it.
What is all this information doing, where is it coming from and what do we need to do about it?  I say step back, take a deep breath, look at what makes sense, educate yourself and then live life.

Practically this is what that might consist of, from the information I have been able to sort through -
  • Natural is always better - limit the amount of chemicals, you eat, sleep and breathe
  • Go outside once in awhile (as long as you don't live near a toxic dump, or a gas well or a concrete plant...)
  • Limit electronic and electrical fields - so as soon as you are done reading this - turn off your computer and go outside
  • Move your LED clock away from your head and take the TV out of your bedroom (this may improve more than your electrical field energy)
  • Grab an apple not a bagel, or a cucumber not a candy bar, or some water not a soda
  • Eat Great food with Good Friends or just Good Food with Great Friends - Stop and Think about what you are eating and are you really that hungry?
  • Play and Dance - it's good for everyone
  • Laugh and then Laugh some more -- need help visit Tim Hawkins at
  • Eliminate toleration - think about the things you do that you hate but do anyway - stop doing all those that you can -
  • Read labels and not just on food - check out positive movie and video review sites like
We do not have to be run by fear and we do not have to have a spreadsheet of our minute by minute activities (although I do recommend this when visiting Disney World).  We just need to do the things we already know are right.  We should spend time developing relationship with God so that we will hear His voice when He is guiding us.  And then being able to hear that voice we should obey.  We need to not fear - knowing that He will give us the wisdom and the strength to do what He is calling us to do.  

 2 Tim 1:6-8
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
 8Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,
