I was intent to learn why and how disease and cancer happen, and what if anything we can do to prevent it and heal from it. Cause and effect. What I found time and time again is that most, if not all, diseases can be traced back to human-made problems in the environment, particularly in our food and water. Based on this, the Green Handbook was made to help you keep everyone you love healthy and protected, safe and sound.
