It’s a Biblical concept that has it ties to the soil. The basic thought is that what you put into the ground is what you get out of it. The same can be said for the thoughts that you put in your head, and the activities that you engage yourself in.
It turns out that this very basic principle is not taught (or learned) by as many people as it should be, and in the area of breast cancer and women, Professor Jane Wardle is worried.
You see, the poll was conducted of over 10,000 students in 23 different countries. Many of the women interviewed knew of the link between heredity and Breast Cancer, especially in the United States. However, only 10% of Americans knew there was a link between alcohol and Breast Cancer. Other links that were not well known were lack of exercise and what you eat.
You see, you cannot expect to have a lifestyle that encourages the imbibing of a dangerous substance (dangerous to the liver, to your esophogus– can we say hang over?– etc) and not expect some repercussions– or can we? We seem to have an attitude in today’s culture that we can do whatever we want and who cares about the consequences– or the consequences won’t happen to me. We have a microwave mentality that sees the now and does not see tomorrow.
Whether is this life or the next, we will reap what we sow now, which is all the more reason to do right.
