how to lower your cancer risk

these are called christmas lima beans
i grew them in my garden
while volunteering for a seed swap i had to clean up at the end of the day
there were these seeds laying on the floor
i scooped up about 10 or so of them since i had grown them before in texas
the flavor of these beans are almost meaty tasting like they were cooked in ham
some call it a chestnut flavor

this spring i planted these 10 beans in my garden
i prepped the garden site by digging down about a foot and a half
removing the soil which was mostly clay
into the deep hole i added cardboard newspapers lots of mulch compost and soil
i did this in layers until i got about 6 inches from the top then i added just alternating organic compost and soil until the bed was filled up
the resulting bed was much higher than the surrounding garden
over the last 6 months the height has slowly decreased as all those goodies have composted itself into a rich rich organic soil
i also had added to these layers some organic fertilizer with good germs in it and molasses and seaweed solution and fish emulsion

yep its real rich organic soil

as the seeds which ms b planted for me grew i never ever used any products on them that was not organic
never ever never ever would i

i grow all my veggies which we eat a lot of in a total organic fashion
no chemicals
no pesticides
i even rarely use any organic products pesticides or weed killers

so when i harvested these christmas lima beans
they were pure unadulterated organic christmas lima beans
no cancer causing chemicals on or around them

here is my giant organic daikon radish i recently planted in my garden a few weeks ago
now its harvested
i chose to donate it to the elementary worm composter to see if the worms would eat it like they did the rotten pumpkin
my guess is the worms will love it

that compost like the compost i make in my garden worm towers is pure organic compost

a recent study discussed in this article shows that eating organic food can lower your cancer risk by 25%

i think its because eating rainbow foods and organic foods naturally assists your body in fighting cancer eg tomatoes maybe with prostate cancer

not putting all those chemicals in our bodies from contaminated foods has to play a part

maybe but i dont think its proven eating not altered genetic foods ie nongmo might play a part

remember this rule dont mess with mother nature
just look around you and youll see evidence of that

folks who eat organic foods also tend to eat a healthy diet and exercise more

thats what i think may lower the cancer risk

in the meantime
in my fall organic garden i will or have planted organic veggies that will help to fight heart disease alzheimers cancer obesity diabetes and probably more

ive planted things like
sweet peas kales cilantro broccoli cabbage garlic onions lettuce beets spinach bok choy carrots and im sure as the fall and winter progresses ill add more

sure beats chemo
