Healing practitioners should preface any treatment with the intention that it work only for the recipients highest good and wholeness or some simular variant. This will protect from doing harm of any kind. Even were it true that green was bad for cancer it would not do anything at all rather than do harm.

When you look at plants growth which is where this limiting idea comes from you will notice that the bright green healthy plants often easily resist and overcome the blights, diseases and fungus and even many of the insects that attack them. The green growth benefits the plant not the blights and so it is with disease and imbalance in people too.
