The statistics are grim. Out of every three people, one will get cancer in their lifetime, and only half of those victims will survive, so how are our pets any different?

A century ago you hardly heard of cancer. It barely existed. Why was that? Because food wasn't an industry. Chemicals weren't used for processing food with chemicals then, and we didn't have chemical-based pharmaceuticals then, toxic insect killer and carcinogenic weed killers were not being sprayed on our crops and yards. Think about it: by consuming chemicals or by applying them on our bodies or by injecting them into our blood and muscle tissue you get cancer. Still the epic 'search for the cure' rallies onward, while we poison ourselves and our pets.


Whether they are cats, dogs, goats, pigs or birds many people treat their pets with love and kindness (like looking after children). The pet's birthdays are celebrated, we set up play dates, we bathe and clean them, groom them, and spend thousands of rupees when they get sick or need operations. When they pass on, we even give them funerals. In that same light, millions of Sri Lankans trust their veterinarian's advice 100 per cent of the time without question. They are given the same level of trust and credibility as medical doctors, but is that a good thing?

What if leukaemia and bone cancer is caused by all those chemical vaccines, operations, flea killers, and medications because of their toxicity? Plus, what if there are heavy metal toxins, genetically modified ingredients, dangerous toxic fillers, in much advertised and branded dry pet food? What if pet food is manufactured in and imported from the most polluted industrial nation in the world – China?

Take the time and effort to take some major precautions and look into preventive 'medicine' for your pet, just as you would do or should be doing for yourself and your children.

After all if you don't, it will cost you and your children thousands of rupees and major unnecessary emotional turmoil. Let me share with you 11 simple actions you can take to protect your family and your beloved pets from cancer.

#1. Never spray Roundup or any glyphosate based weed killer (or any chemical based weed killer) in your yard

Cats and dogs have soft pads on the bottom of their paws that absorb toxins quite easily. If you're one of the millions of people who have never been educated about the dangers of glyphosate and the 'inert' ingredients of Roundup, then you probably spray weed killer in your garden regularly. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies this top-selling poison as a probable carcinogen. Many countries including Sri Lanka have banned glyphosate for good reason.

#2. Never feed your pet any food made or packaged in China

The most polluted nation on earth is China. Even certified organic food from there can arrive at its destination, loaded with heavy metal toxins. Even in an advanced country like America, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) doesn't test for heavy metal toxins at all, ever. We don't either. We don't even have the technology to do so. As such, you are likely to have a polluted dry pet food being given by you to your pet. Don't feed your pets treats that contain mercury, lead, cadmium, copper, nickel, and aluminium. Your local veterinarian won't test your pet for heavy metal toxin overload either.

#3. Don't let your pet drink from the toilet and don't fill their drinking bowl with fluoridated water

Scentless bleach, ammonia, and other poisons that no animal should ever consume are present in toxic toilet cleansers, 'blue' tablets, and many conventional cleaning products. There are strong chemicals in them that are required to clean a toilet. If you clean your toilet with toxins, keep the lid shut or at least flush it after you're done. Also, if you still have an intelligence quotient (IQ) above the temperature outside, then you can look on the internet and find out that fluoride in US tap water can cause severe bone disease, kidney disease, a calcified pineal gland, brittle bones, and yes, cancer.

Sodium fluoride, a known carcinogenic insecticide that's imported from China's industrial waste division, is added to US tap water, in the insane idea that this purifies the water and somehow promotes good oral health. It's one thing to use fluoride to kill bacteria in the mouth when added to tooth paste or tooth gel. It's another thing entirely to ingest it and let it enter the digestive system and from there enter the bloodstream and organs. By the way, it's not good for teeth either, ask your dentist for proof when he starts lying to you about it. Fluoridated water can also cause arthritis, damage to the developing brain, reduced thyroid function, and osteosarcoma according to a growing body of evidence. Thankfully, Sri Lanka has not aped the North American insanity of adding fluoride to our tap water.

#4. Never use chemical-based flea spray, powder, collars, or ointments

Big Pharma runs the monstrous chemical medicine industrial complex called 'the veterinary industry.' No different from the superbug-laden drug based allopathic hospitals of Sri Lanka, America and virtually every other country. They all operate under the same premise, where first animals are fed toxic food and then are brought to doctors to address all their health issues, then the veterinarians treat these illnesses with chemical ointments, flea medications, powders, sprays, pills, vaccines, and operations. The fact that the pet food itself is loaded with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), processed ingredients, and food 'stuff' imported from China, is hardly ever addressed. If you believe that dry food is good for your pet, take a long, hard look at the ingredients list on any branded pet food which comes from the West. Consider what goes into making the additives, preservatives, fillers, emulsifiers, and so on and think whether or not these are natural things for your pet to be eating, whether their digestive system would be getting healthy natural food from these, or processed food which is harmful to them both in the short term and the long term.

#5. Never flea bomb your house

Dangerous chemical residue can remain on furniture, carpet, kitchen counters, and food items after a flea bomb is complete. Half the time, flea 'foggers' don't even reach the places where fleas are hiding. Try using food grade diatomaceous earth for killing fleas. It's safe and chemical-free.

#6. Don't let exterminators spray poison in, around, or under your home

This is a very tricky situation in a tropical country like Sri Lanka where termites are ever present and can easily enter a house which is not treated with a chemical barrier of some sort, before construction. After they enter, they become a chronic headache and can cause structural damage as well. Nearly all exterminators use chemicals that are toxic to humans and pets. Outdoor pets don't know any better and will step on these chemicals or even eat small animals and bugs that have been affected.

#7. Beware of unnecessary and ineffective vaccines that your pet doesn't need

The arguments against vaccination apply here as well. Most vaccines, whether for humans or pets, are completely unnecessary for immunity, are a waste of money, and often contain thimerosal (mercury), formaldehyde, aluminium, animal proteins, and other toxic excipients that cause diseases including autism and cancer. Beware!

#8. Thoroughly research any heartworm medications that are most likely not healthy for long term use

Has your vet told you to give your pet heartworm meds year-round? Well-known veterinarian, columnist, and author Martin Goldstein notes that heartworms are "less of an epidemic than the 'disease-causing toxicity of heartworm medicine."

#9. Pet treats often contain carcinogenic ingredients, including GMOs, so watch out!

Heavy metal toxins and genetically modified foods are loaded into toxic pet treats which are lethal to cats and dogs. Also, just as humans should avoid GMOs, so should your pets.

#10. Don't use toxic ant, roach, or bug spray, traps or pellets where your pet can get to them

This is just common sense. There are plenty of natural bug repellents and pest control substances that don't endanger humans or their pets. Do your homework and act accordingly.

#11. If you must walk your dog on the road, try to do it on a byroad with less traffic

As much as humans should not be inhaling the exhaust fumes from vehicles, laden with carbon dioxide and other toxins, neither should your pets. Otherwise, try to exercise your pets in your garden by playing with them. This creates emotional health in your pet and strengthens the bond between you'll as well. Plus an added bonus, the human owner (you) gets a good workout as well!
