Life's Not Fair

So drawled Scar on The Lion King. The adults laughed, probably for two reasons. Firstly, we’ve been around long enough to know it’s the truth and, secondly, we hear our kids say it all the time, like they’re the only ones it’s ever happened to. And if we’re honest, we’re inclined to lament the line as well.

Every so often I write in my blog or say to clients that eating high raw (or all raw) offers no guarantee to me (or you) that I will escape life’s bullets of ill health or life threatening disease. Because of recent events within my circle of contacts, a few weeks ago I witnessed the truth of this.

Anyone who says that positive thinking, eating only food that creates an alkaline state or otherwise following rules of healing will fix ‘it’ is wrong. 
I will say again there are no guarantees that I will finally depart this life as a healthy and vibrant old lady. I might, but I might not. 

The only thing I know for sure is that by living the way I do I raise my chances of it significantly. And that is quite different.
It would be easy for me to only tell you about the lovely success stories I hear so often. That would be duplicitous at best, hypocritical and dishonest at worst.

Fortunately, there are so many stories of improved health, symptoms disappearing, increase of energy and weight being lost. These stories far outweigh the ‘not-quite’ versions. I see the effects of food and drink changes so often that it convinces me of the truth in the possibilities but not in the 100%.

Everything in life is a risk. It really depends on what we choose to do. Doing nothing is a risk, too. I would rather manage my risk than let life buffet me at its will.

Death will reach us all in the end but I’m doing my best to live the longest, most fulfilling life I can.
A correction to the blog sent on the 18th May, 2013.

"In 90% of breast cancer tumours, parabens are found. Link 1. Link 2." is re-phrased to the following:

The two studies mentioned found parabens in breast tissue taked from female participants who had had tumours removed. The tumours themselves were not tested. Additionally, some study participants reported having never used underarm cosmetics (the suggested source of parabens), yet parabens were still found in their breast tissue.

The correlation suggested between parabens in these studies was that breast tissue could be a storage area for some types of parabens. As yet, there is no correlation between parabens and the causation of breast tumours. But, as I mentioned in the original post, knowing parabens are found in breast tissue is sufficient knowledge for me to avoid them and wait for further studies.
