Melissa Etheridge is speaking out about what she thinks caused her cancer, and what changes have helped her get healthy.

Etheridge believes that a diet high in meats and processed foods led to cancer. The singer was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. According to One Green Planet, she blames western society’s diet and lifestyle for her illness. She says “Our own western lifestyle is one of the reasons that half of us have cancer – because our western lifestyle is so acidic; the food we eat causes acid… the meats, the processed foods… and it’s really taxing us, and that’s why we’re seeing this epidemic.”

In her interview with Access Hollywood Live, Etheridge said that stress is also to blame for the massive number of cancer diagnoses, and that meditation has helped her spiritually and improved her health. She says she is now “grateful for every moment.”

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
