News has just been reported that ABC News reporter Robin Roberts needs a bone marrow transplant and her sister is a match. This is her latest battle with Cancer and you have to wonder why this is happening to her again. Cancer affects a million Americans daily, and it appears to be getting worse with each passing day. Could it possibly be lifestyle choices that we make, thinking that we’re immortal and can go about life living as if what happens to us just happens? I don’t think so. This new way of life is so hard to change to one that gives you a better quality of life. Maybe it’s pressure from our peers that’s causing us to lose focus and direction.
More than 4,500 people receive a bone marrow transplant each year. With the advancement of new treatments, a key healing part seems to be forgotten – eating and living a plant-based lifestyle.
What is Bone Marrow?
Bone marrow is a soft, sponge-like material found inside certain bones, such as the heads of the femur (thigh bone) and humerus (arm bone), the sternum (breast bone), and the hipbones. Bone marrow contains immature cells called stem cells. Stem cells can divide to form more stem cells or they can mature into blood cells.
Your white blood cells help fight infection, your red blood cells help carry oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide from organs and tissues and your blood platelets enable the blood to clot.
Fighting Cancer with a plant-based lifestyle really makes a difference. We must try to live in a stress free environment and remove all distractions that are prohibiting your peace of mind. Lets decide to win this way on Cancer today by making changes that can have everlasting effects on you now! Cancer can be stopped in its tracks, just as Diabetes can be prevented!
