Organic Gardening is My Answer to Cancer

December 4, 2019

Alright, this is John Kohler with
Today I have another exciting episode for you here in my backyard garden, sitting amongst
all my beautiful raised beds and some of my plants I’m growing here in the backyard. Anyways,
today’s episode is going to be an interesting one. It’s going to be kind of my commentary
on some things that have been happening lately in the news and all that kind of stuff. I
don’t normally get involved too much in the news, but some things are just hard to avoid
and today’s video topic is about my answer to cancer. It’s my vegetables garden, man.
I’m sitting between it. Gardening is an integral part of my life because, I mean, we all have
to eat, we all got to eat food and I want the majority of the food that I’m eating coming
out of my garden, my vegetables garden, and eating a lot of the healthy foods for me.
So, you know, many of you guys may have heard some of the things recently going on in the
news, famous people, actresses or whatever, are getting their boobs cut off, you know,
nice women with nice breasts, getting them but off because they don’t want to get breast
cancer. So, the though is if I remove the breast, it will greatly diminish my risk for
breast cancer because the cancer can’t go to my breast. Well, in my opinion, and before
I go on I do need to give my disclaimer in this video is that everything that I say in
this video is my opinion and it’s for entertainment purposes only. If you do have a cancer or
any other kind of disease, please consult a qualified medical practitioner that can
help you out. This is just sharing with you guys my views and my opinions on this subject.
So, they get the boobs cut out and then they have a much lower risk of getting breast cancer,
because there’s no breast cancer for the cancer to go, but if the cancer doesn’t go to the
breast, it may go to the uterus, then what? They’re going to cut out the uterus, and if
it doesn’t go tot the uterus, where’s it going to go? It’s going to go to the brain next
or the lungs or, you know, the skin, you know. There’s always another place the cancer will
go if it doesn’t, you know, go to one place. It’s going to go to another. You know, so,
what I like to do instead of worrying about the cancer and cutting parts of me out. You
know, I don’t want to cut off my testicles ’cause I’ll get testicular cancer. I mean,
that’s part of me, you know what I’m saying? So, you know, instead of cutting things out,
it’s my opinion and what I’m doing in my life is doing the proactive approach. I mean, you
may be able to predict to some level of extinct, you now, the risk of you getting cancer based
on your genes and based on your parents and your parents parents and all this kind of
stuff, but, you know, I think the best things to do is to be proactive about your health,
no matter if it’s the cancer or anything else. Now, how can we be the most proactive for
the health? Well, you know, the one thing’s to me is really clear is if we look like 100,
200 years ago, what were the levels of breast cancer? When you were a kid growing up, did
women have breast cancer? Was all these cancers like astronomical and cancers sky high happening
to like, you know, people you know? Like if someone of you got cancer, it as like a big
thing because people rarely got cancer back in the day. Why? What changed between back
in the day and now? Have our genes changed that much in 100 years? No, they haven’t but
what has really changed dramatically is the food people eat. Maybe just 100, 200 years
ago, the majority of food people ate they grew themselves. They ate natural foods, foods
found in nature. They didn’t buy things found in packages, bottles, and jars. They didn’t
eat in restaurants. They didn’t have restaurants. If you wanted to eat, you had to grow it and
cook it and eat it yourself and do all that stuff, and this is what’s really changed in
my opinion, and so for me I want to be proactive and I want to do gardening and I want to grow
my own food and have the majority of the food that I’m eating come out of my garden. I mean,
there’s research put there that shows things like the allium family, and we got some. Wow,
smells amazing. We got some sweet onions flowering right now and I love, last night I actually
took these flowers off and spread them all over my salad. It’s totally delicious. WE
got the allium family here. The onions, which are also included in the garlic. We got the
other ones, the brassica family. This is actually some broccoli and same thing with karabi and
collard greens and Bok choi. They’re all in the same family of plants. These 2 family
of plants. There’s a lot of research that support these are some of the, you know, probably
most protective plant categories against things like cancer and other things. So, I like to
include some of these in my diet every day, whether I’m eating the onion bulb or the onion
stalk or the onion flowers. All those, you know, nutrients are in there, and now the
nutrition, while there are vitamins, minerals, you know, what’s the most important nutrient
in the plants you’re growing in my opinion are the phytochemicals. These are many discovered
and also yet undiscovered nutrients in the plants and why are these phytonutrients in
the plants? Phytonutrients are in the plants not for us. They’re in there for the plants.
These are the same phytonutrients that are in the plants that protect them from predators
in nature. What are predators of onions? I don’t know, animals that would come and eat
the onions, right? And chow on them because every plant in your garden, every creature
on earth, the number one main thing to do, they’re primary directive is to reproduce
and multiply and continue on so that they don’t become extinct like the dinosaurs, and
some of these properties in the plants which make their, you know, phytochemicals and phytonutrients
are there for the plants, but when we eat them, they give us some protective powers
as well, much like some pixie dust, but in any case, seriously though, you know, and
that’s why I’m growing my own food, and based on my research, some of the phytonutrients
and some of the nutrients in the produce can be lost, you know, during harvesting, hydro-cooling
and shipping. Matter of fact, one of the research studies I’ve seen shows that within 24 hours,
up to 50% of certain nutrients can be lost in produce that’s cut, picked, harvested and
shipped to you, and then it’s even shipped or put on a truck from California to Florida
or the eat coast. If you live on the east coast, especially in the wintertime, and you
know, there’s even more nutrient loss. Now, am I sating that fruits and vegetables in
the grocery store are, you know, worthless? You know, I’m saying if that’s the best you
can do, then that’s great. Eat more fruits and vegetables. These have the protective
properties in them that are really good for us, that may prevent things like cancer based
on some of the research I’ve seen and based on my beliefs because of the research. So,
I just want o maximize those nutrients. Furthermore, you know, if we look at studies in the past,
like in the 1950’s, 1930’s, back in the day, you know, there’ve done studies where they
take on apple of then, back then, and one apple of today, and you have these like 2.5
apples of today to get the same nutrients in the one apple form back then. What’s going
on? Is it the hybridization and the new different kinds of seeds that they’re using od those
apples or is the soil depletion so the nutrients are no longer in the soils so that the plants
can absorb those nutrients and put them into apple for us to eat? So, you know, its’ my
thought that it’s, you know, primarily due to the nutrient depletion of the soil so that’s
why I’m growing the most nutrient dense crops that I can. Based on the research that I have,
adding things like the, you know, compost, organic matter, and the trace minerals back
in the soil so that my pants can be fully healthy and when your plants have more nutrient
in there, guess what? They’re going to be healthier themselves but based on the studies
I’ve seen they’re also going to contain more phytonutrients and phytochemical and other
protective properties for us. So that’s totally crazy. Now, I know if you’re a woman out there
you might be things, you know, ‘John, it’s all good that you want to eat healthy to prevent
thing’s,’ you know, ‘not get cancer and whatnot, but’ you know, ‘there this thing called the
PCRA gene or whatnot, and’ you know, ‘if you got that, you’re just going to get cancer,’
but I have done research and there are studies that show that by changing your diet, you
can actually be less susceptible to getting things like cancer. I mean, let me share with
you guys my story for these of you guys that don’t know it. I mean, I personally might
not be here right now to share this message with you. What happened to me, when I was
in my 20’s I had what’s called spinal meningitis. This is a potentially fatal disease and actually
the doctors told me that I might not make it out alive. Now, that’s not a fun place
to be, especially in your 20’s or at any age. I mean, when I was in my 20’s I thought, ‘man,
this isn’t supposed to happen to me until I’m like way older,’ but the reason why I
got that was because the doctors said what I had was compliment immune deficiency. So,
what they said was I had these genes that basically made me chronically have a weak
immune system, which means I was more susceptible to any disease and I could get it and then
be sick and lose my life, and, you know, back in the day when I was in the hospital I really
thought hard, what was the most important thing to me at the time? Is it all the money
in the bank, you know? Is it, you know, having a girlfriend or having a nice car? No, that
wouldn’t do me nothing right then and there, but having my health was the most precious
gift hat I could have and it learned that, you know, that I had bad genes. So, was I
supposed to just live out my life with bad genes and just cross my fingers that I wasn’t
going to get spinal meningitis or cancer or anything else again? No, I need to like do
something to change my outcome. So, what I did was I did a lot of research and I found
that by eating, you now, plants-strong diet, plant-based diet, whatever you want to call
it, you know, these are the things that have protective properties for us and it’s the
overconsumption and too much consumption of animal products and especially processed foods
that may raise your instances of illness and sickness in my opinion based on my research.
So, that’s why I stared eating more plants and then to even further that, I started growing
my own plants and growing my own foods that I could better my diet, better than what I
could buy so that I could have the most health, and that’s what I encourage all you guys to
do is to, you know, stay motivated about gardening. If you’re not currently gardening, I encourage
you guys to garden and in not only grow the food but also eat the food because, you know,
besides just changing your diet by growing a vegetables garden, your going to be healthy
in other ways. Number one, this is totally apparent, you’re going to be getting exercise.
I mean, you’re going to have to lift hose compost bags, you’re going to have to dig,
you’re going to have to do all that kind of stuff. Do some physical activity. Many people
these days in my opinion re not getting enough physical activity. Number 2, you’re going
to be out in the sun, man. The sin’s so nice out here today. Barely any clouds in the sky,
and, you know, and there’s bugs, too, but the sun’s so nice and wen you, when the suns
comes in contact with your skin, your skin, your skin makes vitamin d, and there are studies
that show vitamin d may have positive roles of play with prevention of cancer, but they
don’t prevent flies from landing on you, but yea, vitamin d’s a great things to have, and,
you know, especially with people living indoors too much, they’re not creating the vitamin
d they need. Another thing that’s really good about being outside is breathing the fresh
air. Breathing fresh air is really important. You know, we need oxygen to survive, and indoors
there’s been a lot of studies that show, you know, indoors are getting recirculated air
and it’s not quite as fresh as it could be, so get outside to get some fresh air. Another
thing that’s really important to me in gardening is that, you know, in gardening, when you’re
outside playing with the plants, and I love my plants. They smell so good. You’re back
to nature. I mean, this is where we all originated, man. We originated in nature, we originated
in the outdoors. You know, back 2000 years ago I don’t even know if they had houses and
stuff. Maybe they had castles and stuff and caves, but, you know, we want to get back
to nature. WE are creatures of nature just like every other creature on this planet.
We’re all creatures of nature and we live in an artificial environment in little houses
or teepees or yurts or whatever you got. So, getting out to nature we could just reconnect
with, you know, with our absolute being and stuff. In addition, another thing that really
beneficial about the gardening is you’re smelling things and, you know, here we got some soil
here and there has been studies that show, like smelling soil like smelling a fine wine,
it gets better with time, but no seriously though, there’s studies that show, you know,
there’s microbes in the soil that when we breathe them in they may be able to lift your
depression and they make you feel better. So, you know, I mean, all our sense are just
really here to help us in nature. I mean, our eyes are used to spot, you know, things
that are ripening so we can tell the difference in colors and stuff. It’s just so cool to
just be out in nature and use your senses, feel the wind on your hair and on your skin
and whatnot. So, besides just the soil and the microbes in the soil and being connected
back to nature back with the earth, mother earth, which is where we live here, another
reason for gardening is because you’re going to be outside and you’re going to be in nature
and you’re going to be in natural elements so you’re going to be in less stressful environment.
In my opinion, stress is a big reason for many illnesses and, you know, we just need
to relax and just be at peace in nature, whether you want to ohm underneath a tree, or you
just want a garden to see green all around you, you just need more peace and less stress.
We need to get out of that busy 9-5 world, whether we’re on a computer, running from
here to there and just being in nature gardening at your time. Tie just seems to fly when I’m
gardening because I’m just having so much fun, and, you know, being more at peace instead
of in that fast paced society that we all live in. So, the final thing I’d like to say
today is, you know, besides just the gardening and all the benefits you’re going to derive
from, I really want to encourage you guys to really eat what’s coming out of your garden,
whether your onion tufts, whether your broccoli, whether your leafy greens that you can barely
see down there. I mean, we want to be eating plants in your diet and eating mostly plants
and especially like the name of my channel is growingyourgreens. Greens in my opinion
re some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet and have some of these anti-cancer
prevention properties contained within them, and if you’re picking them, easting then fresh
growing them in the highest quality soil compost, and using the trace minerals, you’re going
to have some of the best foods on earth, which in my opinion in turn will give you the best
health on earth to literally disease-proof yourself. Now, if you don’t believe me about
this disease proof stuff, there’s a really good website I encourage you to check out.
It’s called Dr. Joel Forman wrote a book called eat to live, and I guess
the opposite is eat to not live. I want to encourage you guys to eat to live and check
out that book out of a library, but a copy, it’s actually the New York Time number 1 best
seller for awhile, and, you know, you could truly eat to live by eating some of the foods
your growing in nature. So, if I was a woman I definitely would not get my boobs cut off.
I would much rather grow a garden and eat out of my garden. Eat the majority of foods
out of my garden, including ramping up the leafy greens by juicing, blending, eating
a lot of salads, and just mailing things fun and more importantly getting the kids involved
with nature and the garden because we really gotten away from gardening and growing our
own food, which is simply where we were about 100, 200 years ago, but now we’re all about
convenience and going to the store and the food comes form the store, it doesn’t come
from your garden. I see countless people spending money and money and money at the grocer when
they could simple be growing their own food. I mean, I really just don’t have to buy things
like onions or garlics or greens now because I have so many growing in my garden that I
could just come out here and pick every single ay, and yet these little tubs of 5 ounces
of organic greens and the whole foods store is $3.50, $4. It’s just insane. So, gardening
will also save you money. So, hopefully after watching this video you’ll start to garden
and really realize the importance of the food you can grow yourself. There’s some of the
most cancer preventative foods in my opinion based on the research I’ve seen. So, I hope
you guys enjoyed this quick episode. Stay tunes for upcoming episodes where I’m getting
more into the gardening and sharing some techniques and tips with you so that you can grow more
food at home. Once again, my name is John Kohler with We’ll see
you next time, and remember, keep on growing!

    It's not their fault, but they could've prevented their cancers, as anyone can. Thus predisposition /= inevitability. Dr's don't have all the answers. Most doctors today still recommend chemo, which is a disgrace. Yes, veggies and fruits will interfere with chemo, because they counteract the poisons in chemo. You must re-educate yourself about health, especially in regards to cancer, and stop putting absolute faith in the inherently corrupt medical establishment.

  • Reply John Maher May 19, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Yeah the fact that the tumor has shrunk significantly due to chemo really suggests my doctors are wrong. Yes the medical establishment is bad, show me one establishment that's not. , Most doctors treat you based on what you have where it is located and what has been proven to work. Quite simply you are advocating a "cure" from vegetables and they are not. Will you have better health by eating them yes I'm not arguing that, I'm saying that they will not stop cancer.

    John; I am a Triple Negative Breast Cancer survivor. I grew up on homegrown organic foods. Like me Angelina has the BRCA gene. It is a totally different type of cancer with an excessively high MiB rate. Which means it divides 5x faster or more than other cancers. I don't know if I would have removed my breast before I was dx'ed, but I can't judge her. I truly believe I am alive because I combined therapies and nutrition from juicing to meditation and I have always spent hours outside everyday.

    i normally love your videos, but people who eat healthy are often (in my experience) the most unhealthiest people. i'm saying this because I've noticed a trend that people want easier cures, people want the easy "eating a way to better health" or a "magic pill". one of the reasons people are dying of cancer at a higher rate now is because people are going to Dr. visits. who could afford a Dr. visit 100 years ago? the often case was people who had undiagnosed cancer died of bronchitis.

While working in Boulder, CO, more than a decade ago, one of the top oncologists in the country came to our clinic for "alternative" treatments because he refused the cut-burn-poison approach that he used on his patients. Without divulging too much personal info, he had a 4th stage osteosarcoma that had begun to spread. His immune system was super-charged He died 8 years later, near age 80–from a cardio issue.

    I encourage everyone to research the Gerson Therapy. It's what I believe John is eluding to here in this video. Dr. Max Gerson had a 50% cure rate of terminal cancer in the 1930's using raw vegetable juices and other supplements. He cured many when conventional methods failed. What most people don't understand is that cancer is not caused by your genetic makeup but the average person due to heavy pharmaceutical propaganda will agree that your genes will determine if you get cancer or not.

    Some of your advice is so wack with no understanding of genetics. Normally I enjoy your videos but how you handle this subject is not only disrespectful to those with cancer, but uninformed and simplistic. Of course diet is hugely important with cancer protection, but certain genes will increase your chance of developing certain types of cancer.

    YES,YES,YES…I wholeheartedly agree with you John. My dad and brother have both died of colon cancer. When my dad was diagnosed in '86, his doctor told all of us kids to QUIT eating processed AND red meats and to focus on eating vegetables, fruits too but to him veggies were king! Even if I knew I carry the gene for colon cancer, there's no way would have my colon cut out to avoid the disease. Holy hell–growing and eating your own veggies is EASY to do…I urge everyone to *try it*!

    The fact is that if you avoid everything that gives you cancer it wouldn't matter that you have a gene predisposing you to cancer. People are so easily offended, and this is someone who's trying to get a positive message out there – that we're not helpless in the preventative battle against cancer. If we change our habits we can be healthier – how can this be considered offensive?

    Yes I have predisposition for cancer, but I truly believe it was the vegetables and grapes. Again in 2007 I dev breast cancer..I was eating a lot of processed food

    Your absolutly right! I just worked at a cancer center, and It just broke my heart to see people aged 70 or 80 going thru chemo! its so hard on your body!
    I am a survivor of cancer twice. I have made peace with my self and God If it comes back, I will just live as long, because the CHEMO is a hell on earth!! the secuelas that it leaves is horrible, at 5 years from that I still suffer from the effects

    Just curious why would anyone be put off by what he said especially anyone with cancer or at high risk of getting it? Both my grandmothers had breast cancer 1 survived and 1 did not. My grandmother has preached to me exactly what John is preaching about in this video/channel since i was a teenager. She's 83 years old and still gardening and taking her daily walks. I think it's silly for anyone to be offended by this video.

  • Reply 1111atreides May 26, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    I'm a sailor and therefore incapable of being offended. His video seemed a callous and flippant statement directed toward uneducated, cheetohs-eating, ghetto breeders. Some made a different choice, a hard choice, given the information they had. He is welcome to his opinion. I've learned much from him, he's earned my respect. You, I find vapid and lacking in compassion toward your fellow man.

  • Reply J B May 27, 2013 at 5:16 am

    Thank you. I was just curious what you thought was so insensitive/disrespectful in this video."uneducated, cheetohs-eating, ghetto breeders" that's quite judgmental which shows your callousness and lack of compassion towards your fellow man.

  • Reply 1111atreides May 27, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    You like uneducated, cheetohs-eating ghetto breeders?! I find willful ignorance appalling and destructive to society. But again, everyone has their own opinion. Let me explain more clearly (slowly) what I'd have preferred. A more gentle conversation w/ the knowledge that some of his audience have actually experienced this situation & have come to his channel trying to become more healthy in their living. Also…"boobs"? What is he, in 6th grade?

  • Reply 1111atreides May 27, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Look, I imagine you and I agree more than disagree on what he had to say. Plant based diet good. Gardening good. Processed food bad. Sedentary tv worship bad. But there is good science taking place as well. I would hope intelligent people would consider both paths.

  • Reply 1111atreides May 27, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    I've seen several comments like "given that choice, I'd just die rather than having my *bits* removed." May I suggest that your viewpoint on this matter may change once you become a mother or a father. When you become a parent, it's all about them. I would do ANYTHING for my daughter. I wholeheartedly agree that plant based diet is best but how do y'all account for vegetarians getting cancer? There actually is something to this genetics thing…it's not all devil's magic.

  • Reply Art Padilla Sr. May 28, 2013 at 1:28 am

    (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And it was so. And that was written how long ago? As for myself, I know I will never get cancer, or heart disease or any other disease because I don’t do the things that cause those illnesses. Eat Healthy, exercise, cleans and relax the body, smile, laugh, get sunshine, fresh air and live!

  • Reply Christopher Wanjek May 28, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Your premise about food and health is spot on. Risk reduction. A few misconceptions, though. (1)Humans didn't eat better 100 years ago; history of humankind is malnutrition. Year-round food security and quality has never been better. (2)Cancer rates not on the rise when age-adjusted, aside from smoking. (3)Macrobiotic diet co-founder Aveline Kushi died of cancer; so did her daughter in her 30s. (4)Most vegetables eaten today weren't around 2,000 years ago; developed from natural varieties. -cw

    Healthy lifestyle is the #1 prevention. However, why make a generalization amongst folks who decide to be medically proactive against very aggressive and relentless types of the disease? Many of the actresses highlighted recently have opted to have surgical intervention did so because they tested + for the BRCA1 gene—prognosis is an 87% chance of developing an aggressive form of breast cancer, difficult to detect and treat and has a poor prognosis, even under the best circumstances.

    Cancer is linked to bacteria in the body shitting and pissing, the shit and piss are what we call free radicals. If you eat right your body PH is alkaline which make microbes that should not be in your body die off so you have a cleaner body with less free radicals. There is a reason why you can't or shouldn't eat rotten or moldy food, even if you cook it you are still eating the poison from the microbes, this is also why alcohol is considered a carcinogen, and even worst a carcinogen aspartame.

    getting more sunlight converts, the bodies cholesterol into vitamin D, which would be better for your skin and hair, but also better for your circulatory system.

  • Reply Young Eggfu June 1, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    also if you get parts of your body cut off you'll just get cancer in the future again, and if you happen to live 5 years and die later from cancer you are considered a cancer survivor, this is how they manipulate numbers and make it look like there has been an improvement in science against cancer, it's better to eat healthier and stay away from GMOs, and diet drinks with aspartame, and also maintain the best PH and EC for the human body. the best way to heal the body is with the body.

    You are way wrong I know plenty of others than had kidney cancer that was caught early and they are 10-30 years cancer free…. An my mom had lymphoid cancer she has had it for 10 years it does come back cause they can't cut it out they do treatments…. But fact is kidney cancer in very early stage will never come back or go to another part of the body…Also most cancer takes 3-5 years to kill you on a normal avg… So please before you tell people they are going to get cancer try to backitup

  • Reply Shawnte Amoure Simmons June 11, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    You know plenty of people with kidney cancer? REALLY?!!!!! Actually Young Eggfu said is true. The numbers in science regarding cancer is greatly manipulated. If you survive 5 years but die five years and 1 day from cancer, you are still considered a cancer survivor.

  • Reply Mimi Neko June 13, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    I've worked with cancer patients most of my career and while it is it very, very rare for a localized kidney cancer to re-occur, it is possible, even if caught early. I have seen it happen a couple of times. It's very tragic. It will usually happen within the first 5 years after treatment.

    both my sisters have this form of breast cancer (the one angelina jolie was afraid of). one had a mastectomy. the other had a lumpectomy and horribly debilitating chemo that aged her body 10-15 years in a matter of months.

IMO cutting off perfectly good body parts as "prevention" rather than truly prevent by being the healthiest one can and avoid carcinogens is as nonsense as taking ones life to prevent dyeing on a potential accident sometime

    Think it's save to say that 100 years ago people had a much bigger chance of dying of other stuff then cancer. Life expectancy was around 50, and the chance of getting cancer is a lot bigger for people older then that. Think blaming it on food is rather simplistic.

  • Reply Betsy September 25, 2016 at 2:58 am

    I have to disagree with John, I think the difference between then and now isn't that there's necessarily less cancer – I believe it's the development of cancer detecting technology. With the technology we have now, we are able to detect cancer much more frequently and at much much earlier stages!! In addition, I believe that if there is an increase since the 40s, it may very well be the result of nuclear testing and development by various Countries around the world. But I do agree with you that supporting our health with nutritive dense foods is a control that each of us can and should incorporate into our daily lives. Thanks for your videos…I love them and am learning a lot at 69 years old!!
