A link between highly processed foods and cancer has been suggested by French researchers.
Not only is there already no doubt that diets containing large amounts of highly-processed foods can cause cancer, this finding is entirely consistent with Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking Cellular Medicine concept. Highly processed foods are invariably low in vitamins, minerals, and other essential micronutrients. As Dr. Rath has shown, chronic deficiencies of these vital dietary substances are the primary cause not just of cancer, but also cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other major killer diseases of today.
In any education program that has the goal of creating a truly preventive health care system, knowledge about the micronutrient content of the food we eat has to be a key element. Knowledge about the vitamin C content of citrus fruits, the polyphenol content of green tea or the micronutrients contained in sweet potatoes, cruciferous plants, grapes and many other plants, and their role in optimizing cellular metabolism, should be taught in schools and made freely available to everybody.
