While the mainstream news media mostly focus on “bad” news, occasionally they will come out with something positive. The other day I read an article talking about all the scientific studies done over the years on the link between food and cancer.
Since this is the holiday season, when food plays a larger-than-normal role in our lives, I thought this would be a good subject for today.
It seems almost every type of food we put into our bodies every day has, at one time or another, been labeled a cancer risk.
Two scientists, Jonathan Schoenfield and John Ioannidis, had their suspicions. So they did extensive research into the so-called scientific studies. As Ioannidis said, “What we see is that almost everything is claimed to be associated with cancer, and a large portion of these claims seem to be wrong indeed.”
Interesting! I wonder how much fear and guilt these studies have instilled in people’s lives and hearts.
Anything you do from a place of fear or guilt is never going to benefit you. The negative energy of the fear and guilt will override anything positive you may have gotten from the experience.
This certainly applies to the food you eat to sustain your bodies. Even if you ate the most natural, healthy food you could find, it would not truly nourish you or your bodies if you are fearful or guilty, suspecting the food may contain something deadly.
Fear and guilt are running rampant on your planet today. They rob you of so much joy and peace. If you live your lives centered in that powerful place within, as you align with your higher selves, nothing can harm you.
Follow your own inner guidance, knowing it is always your highest and best authority, bar none.
The scientific studies John mentioned seem to have exonerated many of your common foods from any link to cancer. And yet we know many people have indeed developed cancer from eating those foods. It wasn’t the foods that caused the cancer. It was the fear and guilt.
Live your lives joyfully, letting go of all fear and guilt. There is nothing to fear, nothing to feel guilty about. Just remember you came here to have fun and to enjoy your lives.
Celebrate life. Celebrate yourselves. All is well.

The oddest thing that I have ever read about what we consider “food” happened when I was doing some research on petroleum jelly. The man who discovered it, Robert Chesebrough, actually ate a spoonful of it every day for his “good health” and lived to be 96! Power of the mind is an amazing thing.
Thank you, Susan. That’s a great story!
Thank you John and Spirit. I appreciate this topic very much.
I believe there is a vibrational range in food. I feel better when I eat real whole fresh alive organically grown food, especially fruits and veggies – living foods that are less dense hold more light.
But I think the thoughts and beliefs we hold about what we eat hold vibration too. Our thoughts are powerful.
So if you, ( as I used to ) hold a really strong belief that that piece of chocolate cake is bad for you and will make you fat(!), well it probably will!
Our beliefs determine our experience.. even with food.
Regardless of the quality of the food, blessing our food is a beautiful way to make any food sacred.
I used to hold a lot of fear about certain foods. I was a Nazi with myself and restricted myself terribly. I tried to be too perfect.
I eventually learned to relax and just allow myself to have whatever I want.
i agree we are here to experience joy without guilt or fear. You can have the most perfect diet in the world but if you harbor spiteful angry thoughts or resentments you can get cancer anyway.

Thanks very much, Martha, for sharing your thoughts.
John, as an Italian, you know what my days will be like up until Christmas Eve. The smells of the cooking and baking bring the joy of Christmases when all of the family was together. I have never associated food with cancer. In fact, I don’t associate anything with cancer, except chemo. I look forward to the dishes we eat only at Christmas, or Easter, or St. Joseph’s, or Sundays. I would love to see all commercials regarding cancer, cholesterol, HBP and many other things taken off television. They serve only to put fear into people. They sell sickness.
Yes, indeed, I do, Toni — this time of year always brings back many happy memories of my family at Christmastime. Food, of course, was always a big part of our celebrations. And there was no fear of food, or any association of it with cancer. In fact, I can think of only one person in my very large family (a couple hundred if you include the 4 generations I’ve known) who’s ever died from cancer.
As you said, commercials instill fear into folks because they sell sickness — that causes more cancer and other illnesses, in my opinion, than anything else. Abraham once said the most negative influence in our modern world is television. I agree.
