Questioning Chemotherapy : A Critique of the Use of Toxic Drugs in the Treatment of Cancer
Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D.- "Conventional cancer therapy is so toxic and
dehumanizing that I fear it far more than I fear death from cancer. We know that conventional therapy
doesn't work--if it did, you would not fear cancer any more than you fear pneumonia.
It is the utter lack of certainty as to the outcome of conventional treatment that virtually
screams for more freedom of choice in the area of cancer therapy.
Yet most alternative therapies regardless of potential or proven benefit, are outlawed, which forces patients to submit to the
failures that we know don't work, because there's no other choice. I started as a believer in chemotherapy.
As a science writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, I wrote articles praising the latest advances in chemotherapy.
Because chemotherapy drugs were general cellular poisons, they could be terribly toxic.
They were also very expensive for patients and for society as a whole. When I learned about the links between the pharmaceutical
industry and the cancer establishment (later detailed in my book, The Cancer Industry) I understood the commercial reason
that such an inadequate modality was so heavily promoted."
William Campbell Douglass II, MD - "To understand the utter hypocrisy
of chemotherapy, consider the following: The McGill Cancer Center in Canada, one of the largest and
most prestigious cancer treatment centers in the world, did a study of
oncologists to determine how they would respond to a diagnosis of cancer. On the confidential questionnaire, 58 out of 64 doctors
said that all chemotherapy programs were unacceptable to them and their family members. The overriding reason for this decision
was that the drugs are ineffective and have an unacceptable degree of toxicity. These are the same doctors who will tell you that
their chemotherapy treatments will shrink your tumor and prolong your life! Thirty years ago, I worked with a
radiologist who told me this: "If I get cancer, I'm going to Mexico." So if you get cancer, don't call your doctor; call your travel agent.
There are alternative treatments available, but you will have to run the gamut of outraged chemo-therapists,
radiologists, and surgeons to find one. They will use cajolery, insults, fear, threats
("If you do this, I am off the case"), and misrepresentation to dissuade you."
In one survey, most oncologists specializing in lung cancer reported that they would not take chemotherapy
if they had the disease. Yet, everyday these doctors give their patients chemotherapy. In conversation with an investigative reporter,
one brain cancer specialist admitted that he would never submit to radiation if
he had a brain tumor. Nevertheless, he continues to send patients for radiation,
because he would be kicked out of the hospital if he didn't follow the accepted
protocol. Based on information in: Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, Jan
1998 Spectrum, Mar/April 1998
Dr. John Gofman, M.D., Ph.D. – a nuclear physicist and a medical doctor,
and one of the leading experts in the world on the dangers of radiation – presents compelling
evidence in his book, Radiation from Medical Procedures in the Pathogenesis of Cancer and
Ischemic Heart Disease that over 50 percent of the death-rate from cancer is in fact induced by x-rays. Medical radiation is a
highly important cause (probably the principal cause) of cancer mortality in the United States during the Twentieth Century.
The second is that medical radiation, received even at very low and moderate doses, is an important cause of death from Ischemic Heart Disease;
the probable mechanism is radiation-induction of mutations in the coronary arteries, resulting in
dysfunctional clones (mini-tumors) of smooth muscle cells.
The 2010 documentary Cut, Poison, Burn provides revealing insight into the medical
monopoly of cancer treatment, as a four year old boy who was diagnosed with brain
cancer was compelled to undergo a system of chemo, surgery and radiation, against
his parents wishes. He was not allowed access to a proven method of alternative
treatment. The medical systems response was callous. The authorities threatened
to take the boy into custody and charged his parents with child abuse if the medical
option was not opted for. The boys death certificate states his cause of death as:
respiratory failure due to chronic toxicity of chemotherapy.
The Prime Cause of Cancer is Not Genetic
In 2006, the heads of the world's largest cancer research center in Houston,
Texas, announced that cancer's prime cause isn't genetic: "'If it could have happened
[solving cancer with genetics], it would have already happened with genetic mutations,'
said William Brinkley, a senior vice-president at Baylor who says other research
should take precedence over the cancer genome project. Dr John Mendelsohn [president
of M. D. Anderson Cancer Center] states, 'Any claims that this [genetic research]
is going to be the key to curing cancer are not appropriate.'" Thus, the prime cause
of cancer is not a genetic mutation. Even if cancer "runs in your family", there
is real hope. Unfortunately, the geneticists have it backwards, attempting to force
the facts to fit their genetics-based theories when they don't fit the facts, because,
as Professor Harris demonstrated many years ago, cancer isn't genetically dominant.
Where does this leave us? Where can we look for solutions? What about the popular
nutritional solutions to fighting cancer?
"...What is shocking to most people, the scientific fact that cancer is genetically
recessive, not dominant. In fact, the human body is highly resistant to cancer.
In 1969, Professor Henry Harris of Oxford University shook the cancer research community
to its core when he proved these previous theories wrong. Professor Harris took
normal tissue cells and fused three types of cancer cells to them. Surely, he thought,
the cancer cells would take over the normal cells and "convert" them into cancer.
Surprisingly, they grew normally.
Contrary to popular opinion, cancer takes several decades to develop in humans.
Given this long incubation period, science can show us the way to destroy any initial
pre-cancerous cells and keep the cancerous ones from causing widespread damage.If
you think cancer has a genetic basis, then think again. Dr Robert A. Weinberg of
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the world's leading cancer researchers
and discoverer of the so-called oncogene (cancer-causing gene), reversed his previous
conclusions after discovering that "fewer than one DNA base in a million appears
to have been mis-copied". It's not enough of a defect! His exact words: "Something
was very wrong. The notion that a cancer developed through the successive activation
of a series of oncogenes had lost its link to reality." He called the genetic discoveries
made thus far "sterile". The prime cause of cancer is therefore not genetic. This
was announced in 1998. Did you hear about it? Probably not.
What if the Cure is Also a Cause?
The International Agency for Research on Cancer which is part of the World Health Organization
lists nine chemotherapy drugs and two "combinational therapies" as known human
carcinogens. Another nine drugs are listed as "probable" and 10 as "possible" carcinogens.
Chemotherapy -- the use of potent drugs to kill cancerous cells -- is more than
60 years old. The first such drugs were nitrogen mustards, originally developed
as chemical warfare agents. Modern chemotherapy drugs are so strong, by necessity,
that they can cause secondary cancers in patients to a healthy person, they're poison.
For decades, experts say, most health care workers were oblivious to the
risks posed to them by these and other drugs, which attack good cells as well as
bad. By the 1970s, The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
says in its alert, "the carcinogenicity of several chemotherapy drugs in animals
was well established. Likewise, a number of researchers during this period linked
the therapeutic use of certain drugs in humans to subsequent leukemia and other
cancers. Many in health care began to question whether occupational exposure to
these agents was hazardous." Last March, the federal government issued an unusually
detailed alert to the nation's 5.5 million health care workers: The powerful drugs
used in chemotherapy can themselves cause cancer and pose a risk to nurses, pharmacists
and others who handle them. A housekeeper who dumps the contents of a bedpan into
a toilet might not realize that the waste is toxic. "Sometimes, 80 percent of the
active ingredient [in a drug] goes right through the patient's system," said Borwegen,
who also served on the NIOSH work group.
Overcoming Immunosuppression from Chemotherapy
Cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation which greatly weaken
the immune system, can greatly benefit from taking transfer factor supplementation.
Transfer factor supplementation serves to protect the body
from "opportunistic" infections, which often occur during these treatments. Dr
Duane Townsend, former director of gynecologic oncology at LDS Hospital in Salt
Lake City, puts all of his cancer patients on transfer factor treatments to boost
their immune systems abilities to respond to any health challenges. Both Japanese
and Chinese clinical studies found that the immunosuppression that results from
chemotherapy can be prevented by using transfer factor isolates. Keep in mind that
the elimination of dying or dead cancer cells is monitored by the immune system.
Italian, Japanese and American studies tell us that the use of transfer factor isolates
to boost immune function after surgery significantly improves the chances of cancer-free
Dr. Hardin Jones M.D, professor of medical physics and physiology at the
University of California, Berkeley. He told an ACS panel, "My studies have proven conclusively that
untreated cancer victims actually live up to four times longer than treated individuals.
For a typical type of cancer, people who refused treatment lived for an average of 12-1/2 years.
Those who accepted surgery other kinds of treatment lived an average of only three years. . . .
I attribute this to the traumatic effect of surgery on the body's natural defense mechanism.
The body has a natural defense against every type of cancer." G. Borell, The Peroxide Story (Delano, Minnesota: ECHO, 1988), page 30.
Glutathione: The Great Protector, The Mother of All Antioxidants
Glutathione is of major significance in cellular antioxidant activity in what Meister called the "GSH antioxidant system" because
it participates directly in the destruction of reactive oxygen compounds and also
because it maintains in reduced form adsorbate (vitamin C) and a-tocopherol (vitamin
E), which also exerts a. antioxidant effect
Dr. Jimmy Gutman, M.D - "Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses
of our time as well as newly emerging diseases. Glutathione levels diminish as we
age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency."
Dr. Allan Somersall M.D - "To raise
glutathione levels is to reduce premature oxidation, to quench destructive free
radicals and help detoxify the poisons inside each cell when it needs to. Only Immunocal
is clinically proven to do that in a safe, effective and convenient way.
"The incidence and mortality rates from most cancers increase exponentially with
age. It is likely that this aging phenomenon is partially due to specific changes
that occur in the host resulting in an increased susceptibility to neoplasia. Our
hypothesis is that one such host factor is a deficiency
in GSH glutathione, based on the importance of this compound in the detoxification
of a wide variety of exogenous and endogenous carcinogens and free radicals, as
well as in the maintenance of immune function."
Linda's neck tumor was reduced by 50% in just 5 weeks when she
raised her glutathione level. I will keep you
posted about Linda's progress with new photos as she sends them to me. Shirley
Low glutathione levels are linked to diseases such
as Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, AIDS, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Atherosclerosis, pregnancy
complications, male infertility and Cataracts. A Glutathione deficiency can cause
a lack of coordination, mental disorders, tremors, and difficultymaintaining
balance. Without Glutathione our liver would soon become overwhelmed with the accumulation
of toxins, resulting in organ failure and death. The level of Glutathione in our
cells is predictive of how long we will live. Glutathione is continuously defending
our body against attacks from disease, toxins, poisons, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress
Marine Phytoplankton: Tumor and Cancer
Marine phytoplankton has been called "the most
nutritionally dense foods on the planet". Patients receiving a cancer drug together
with phytoplankton exhibited response rates up to 250 percent better that those
obtained by the drug alone. These advanced cancer patients experienced regressions
of malignant melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, colorectal carcinoma, lung cancer,
and other types of cancer. Its antioxidants and unique polysaccharides can halt
the genetic mutations that can lead to cancer. Both high levels of saccharides and
adaptogen's increase energy and stamina by improving our animal's ability to consume
and use oxygen.
At the University of Rhode Island, professor Yuzuru Shimizu is developing a culturing
system that will ensure an adequate supply of sea-based organisms that show anti-tumor
properties. Shimizu is examining metabolites of single-celled plankton called dinoflagellates,
which National Cancer Institute tests have shown to have cancer-fighting potential.
When Tom Harper, the owner of a facility that grows marine phytoplankton, was diagnosed
with a terminal form of lung cancer, intuition compelled him to turn to the
phytoplankton. After eating small quantities of this
strange substance, he found his health rapidly restored. Not only was the cancer
a thing of his past, but his life-long challenge to maintain a healthy weight was
finally achieved, and he was able to eliminate his use of insulin - a product that
he had been dependent on for 17 years.
Marine PhytoPlankton could prevent skin cancer

Research Institute in the Netherlands have reported their findings in the latest
edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
Amazing Testimonial of Marine Phytoplankton and Carinoid Tumor
"I have a rare cancer, called Carcinoid Tumor, I was diagnosed on 10/31/03, at 40,
mother of three, my youngest now almost three, I have been facing the unthinkable
early death. There is no known cure for Carcinoid, it is managed by being surgically
removed and then attempts are made to stabilize existing tumors or new tumor growth
by an injected drug that has been developed to "fence the disease in" thus buying
time for the patient. On December 8th, 2003, I had a major nine hour surgery at
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN, successfully removing 98% of the tumors. I was
left with a tumor in my spleen and one on my lung.
Nine months later I was begun on the 30-mg. injection to try to keep the cancer from growing. In the past 22 months,
I have returned to The Mayo, every twelve weeks for CT scans and blood and urine
tests. I have been seen to develop seven new tumors to my liver, giving me a total
of nine known tumors total. Then on October 4th, just 30 days ago, I took my
first ounce of the Marine Phytoplankton, I have taken four tablespoons or 2 ounces per
day one on an empty stomach in the morning and one before bed, I have not missed
a single dose. Beside sleeping better, feeling better and looking better, I have
just returned from my three day trip to The Mayo Clinic where I had a CT scan to
monitor the seven spots on my liver, so that it could be decided if I should undergo
RFA or Radio Frequency Ablation, a surgical technique to remove these tumors from
my liver. This is what happened instead.
My husband and I sat in total disbelief as we were told that there are no tumors on my liver, and the tumor in my spleen
has also vanished!!!! Eight out of nine tumors are GONE! I have never written a
testimonial in my life, but at this point, I feel it is my responsibility to do
so. Is my Sandostatin injection the sole reason for this miracle? I doubt it, since
I have managed to develop seven new tumors in spite of it, and research shows that
the injection to act mainly as a band-aid, and NOT a cure. Have I just been blessed?
Yes, because in my opinion, The Marine Phytoplankton drink was divinely inspired,
and it seems about as clear as my CT scans, that the answer is YES! In writing this
I hope you and your family will find the healing you are hoping for, or at the very
least, will become healthier and feel better while you're looking." C. H.
Full Recovery of Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia - The Natural Approach

Lymphoblastic Leukemia with natural diet and natural supplement that boosts the immune system
Dr. Marc Sircus - "The best way to treat cancer is to stimulate
the body's own resources to destroy the invading intruders, the colonies of yeast
and fungus that cancer is. This fundamental methodology makes much more common sense
than the FDA's and pharmaceutical industries
poisonous slash and burn methods of chemotherapy and radiation
which appear to kill more people than it cures. It has been said by many that drugs
don't heal the body heals itself when properly nurtured and strengthened and led
to do so by concentrated nutritional substances and a careful confrontation with
attitudes and life conflicts that are undermining the immune system."
The Immune Response: The Body's Natural Defense
The Cancer Research Institute was founded in 1953 to foster the science of cancer
immunology, which is based on the premise that the body's immune system can be mobilized
against cancer. This field, which CRI helped pioneer and develop, has been recognized
throughout the world as offering great hope for the ultimate prevention and treatment
of human cancer. The immune response is the body's way of defending itself against
foreign substances that invade it to cause infection or disease. The immune system's
job is a complicated process that involves the coordinated efforts of several types
of white blood cells. The pictorial below depicts the process by showing how the
immune system destroys viruses.
Transfer Factors - Natural Immune Support
The scientific term "transfer factors was added to dictionaries in 1956. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines
"transfer factor" as "a substance that is produced
and secreted by a lymphocyte functioning in cell-mediated immunity and that upon
incorporation into a lymphocyte which has not been sensitized confers on it the
same immunological specificity as the sensitized cell". What this all means, is
that when immune system cells have battled with specific disease invaders, they
produce a substance that transfers a message of warning on to other immune cells.
The newly alerted immune cells "remember" the warning message, producing the same
substance, alerting other immune cells. Once alerted, the immune cells always "remember"
who the specific enemy is, and how to attack it. Because scientists were unable
to actually identify this unknown immune stimulating substance, they coined the simple term "transfer factor" to describe it.
Every mother (human or mammal) that breast feeds her baby, passes all of the
immunity gained throughout her lifetime on to her infant. Transfer factors are not
species-specific and can therefore be extracted from any mammal and then be given
to another mammal with the same efficacy. There are over 3,000 published papers
and 50 years of research on various forms and sources of transfer factors..
Dr. Rob Robertson, MD - "I believe transfer factors are, without
a doubt, the greatest discovery of the century in supporting and modulating the
immune system. I believe a strengthened immune system will be the primary way to
satay well in the future. This nutrient can affect the immune system like nothing
else can. I sincerely believe everyone needs to consume this product. There is no
other product in a nutritional substance, nor a drug, that has this kind of power
and ability to affect our immune system. With the increase of killer viruses, mutated
germs, super-resistant germs, and food contaminations, our only hope and defense,
must lie within our own immune system." Dr. Robertson is a former Emergency Room
. He received his medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine
in 1974. He served as the Director of Emergency Services at Western Baptist Hospital
in Paducah, KY.

Cancer and Magnesium Deficiency
is generally accepted that a higher magnesium intake in the drinking water is associated
with reduced cancer incidence and reduced frequency of cardiac infarction. Information
is scarce about the relationship between cancer and magnesium but researchers from
the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota have just concluded that
diets rich in magnesium reduced the occurrence of colon cancer. A previous study
from Sweden reported that women with the highest magnesium intake had a 40 per
cent lower risk of developing the cancer than those with the
lowest intake of the mineral. Preliminary data also suggests a relationship between
low intake of magnesium and kidney cancer. The School of Public Health at the Kaohsiung
Medical College in, Taiwan, found that magnesium also exerts a protective effect
against gastric cancer.
Dr. Sidney Baker - "Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually
every organ system of the body. With regard to skeletal muscle, one may experience
twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including back aches, neck pain,
tension headaches and jaw joint (or TMJ) dysfunction. Also, one may experience
chest tightness or a peculiar sensation that he can't take a deep breath. Sometimes
a person may sigh a lot."
Cancer-Prevention Mechanism of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
A top European cancer research scientist, Dr Johanna Budwig M.D has discovered a
totally natural formula that not only protects against the development of cancer
but people all over the world who have been diagnosed with incurable cancer and
sent home to die have actually been cured and now lead normal healthy lives. After
three decades of research Dr. Budwig, six-time nominee for the Nobel Award, found
that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was always, without exception, deficient
in certain important essential ingredients which included
substances called phosphatides and lipoproteins. The blood of a healthy person always contains
sufficient quantities of these essential ingredients. However, without these natural
ingredients cancer cells grow wild and out of control.
The body requires special fats that, among other important functions, make it
possible for sufficient oxygen to reach the cells via the cellular membranes, which
are the key. These special fats are highly oxygen-absorbing. Called essential fatty
acids, or EFAs, these special fats must be supplied from outside the body every
day, from foods and certain oils, because your body can't manufacture them on its own.
The miracle of EFA "oxygen magnets"
Think of these polyunsaturated EFAs as "oxygen magnets". The proof of this fact
is buried in the world's leading medical textbooks and medical journals such as
Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry, 26th edition,40 and Human Nutrition Clinical
Nutrition, July 1984.41 EFAs are integral to the structure and function of cellular
respiration. Without high respiration efficiency, cancer is soon to follow. These
EFA oxygen magnets in the cell membrane attract the oxygen that's in the bloodstream
and transfer it into the cell, just like little oxygen sponges. This process is
supposed to be happening in each of the body's 100 trillion cells. So, no matter
how much you breathe or exercise, if you don't have the proper functional EFAs at
the cellular level then your cells will not absorb enough oxygen from your bloodstream
and you will be that much more susceptible to cancer.
Dr Otto Warburg discovered and clearly stated that the prime, most basic, cause of cancer
is too little oxygen getting into the cell. "We find by
experiment about 35% inhibition of oxygen respiration already suffices to bring
about such a transformation during cell growth," he stated at a 1966 conference
of Nobel laureates in Lindau, Germany.
Blood analysis showed a strange greenish-yellow substance in place of the healthy red
oxygen carrying hemoglobin that belongs there. This explained why
cancer patients weaken and become anemic This startling discovery led Dr. Budwig
to test her theory. She found that when these natural ingredients where replaced
over approximately a three month period, tumors gradually receded. The strange greenish
elements inthe blood were replaced with healthy red blood cells as the phosphatides
and lipoproteins almost miraculously reappeared. Weakness and anemia disappeared
and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer, liver dysfunction and diabetes
were completely alleviated.
Dr. Budwig then discovered an all natural way for people to replace those essential
ingredients their bodies so desperately needed in their daily diet. By simply eating
a combination of just two natural and delicious foods not only can cancer be prevented
but in case after case it was actually cured. These two natural foods,
organic flax seed oil and cottage cheese must be
eaten together to be effective since one triggers the properties of the other to
be released.) After more than 10 years of solid clinical application, Dr. Budwig's
natural formula has proven successful where many orthodox remedies have failed.
Dr. Budwig's formula has been used therapeutically in Europe for prevention of:
Cancer! Arteriosclerosis, Strokes, Cardiac Infarction, Heartbeat (irregular), Liver
(fatty degeneration), Lungs (reduces bronchial spasms), Intestines (regulates activity).
Stomach Ulcers (normalizes gastric juices), Prostate (hypertopic), Arthritis (exerts
a favorable influence), Eczema (assists all skin diseases), Old age (improves many
common afflictions), Brain (strenghthens activity), Immune Deficiency Syndromes
(multiple sclerosis, auto-immune illnesses)

RESEARCH FIND BITTER MELON USEFUL FOR CANCER TREATMENT AND IMMUNE DISORDERS
The bitter melon plant
has been used in China as a treatment for diabetes,
tumors, and immune disorders. In Asia and in the
U.S., there has been community interest in the use of the plant as an alternative
therapy for AIDS. Extracts from the whole fruit have been shown to have anti-cancer
properties in mice. The authors of this study suggest that the anti-cancer properties
may be due in part to an enhancement of immune function induced by the bitter melon.
Another study has shown that bitter melon extracts suppressed lymphocyte proliferation
and macrophage and lymphocyte activity in mice.
Melon (Momordica charantia) is a plant/fruit that belongings to the family cucurbitacea.
Chinese cucumber, the plant/fruit from which compound Q (a.k.a. GLQ 223 and tricosanthin)
is extracted, also belongs to this family. Bitter melon, also known as bitter gourd,
bitter pear melon, karela, ampalaya, balsam pear, bitter apple, wild cucumber, cindeamor,
carilla plant, African cucumber, margose, concombre African, and the herbs Kuguazi
(China) and Karela (Pakistan), is common in Asia as well as in Southern California
and southern Florida. This leafy plant bears fruit which looks like a bumpy cucumber.
The fruit, seeds, leaves, flowers, stems, and roots of this plant have been used
in Chinese medicine for treating gastrointestinal infections, as an appetite stimulant,
to decrease blood sugar in diabetics, and to induce abortion in mid-term pregnancy.
More recently, research has shown that bitter melon may be useful as treatment against cancer and HIV/AIDS. -

Medicinal Mushrooms: An Exploration of Tradition, Healing, and Culture
The use of maitake mushrooms and other types of mushrooms for medicinal purposes
can be traced to the Han dynasty (206 BC to 220 AD).
Ganoderma (Reshi) mushroom has been used as folk medicine since ancient times and it is a
popular health food frequently promoted as a cancer cure. It is now well established
from in vitro and animal studies that the polyshaccharide fraction of Ganoderma
is largely responsible for its anti-tumor efficacy. Indications for Ganoderma use
in cancer include supplementation a) to reduce side-effects during chemotherapy
or radiotherapy, b) to prolonging survival and minimize metastasis, c) to improve
quality of life, and d) to prevent occurrence or recurrence.
Throughout the world, people have utilized medicinal mushrooms for immune enhancement
and for the improvement of health. Clinical research shows Agaricus Blazei Murill,
which is rich in beta glucans and other immune-enhancing components, has the following
affects: + Enhance natural killer cell and T-cell activity Activates various immune
cells to attack tumor cells + Provides strong anti-tumor and regulatory effects
upon the immune system + Contains the highest level of beta glucan of all Oriental
mushrooms. transfer factors product contain these
medicinal mushrooms and other all important immune booster ingredients.

Fish oil supplementation for Cancer Patients
Chemotherapy and other conventional medical treatments have proven ineffective
in improving quality of life and survival of patients with end stage cancer. Now
Greek medical researchers report that fish oil supplementation markedly increases
the survival time for cancer patients with generalized malignancy. Their study involved
60 patients with generalized solid tumors. The patients were divided into two groups
with one group receiving 18 grams/day of fish oil (six capsules of MAXEPA three
times daily containing 170 mg eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and 115 mg docosahexaenoic
acid [DHA] per capsule) and the other group receiving a placebo. The fish oil group
also received 200 mg of vitamin E daily to compensate for the oxidative effect of
the fish oil. Each group included 15 well-nourished and 15 malnourished patients.
None of the well-nourished patients suffered from cancer cachexia (abnormally low
weight and general weakness).
The researchers measured the level of T cells, natural
killer cells, and the synthesis of interleukin and tumor necrosis factor before
the start of the supplementation and on day 40 of the trial. The study followed
all patients until they died. Malnourished patients were found to have a considerably
impaired immune function and a decreased production of tumor necrosis factor both
parameters were restored through fish oil supplementation. Malnourished patients
overall had a much shorter survival time than well-nourished ones (mean of 213 days
versus 481 days). Both malnourished and well-nourished patients who received fish
oil and vitamin E survived significantly longer than did patients on placebo. The
researchers speculate that fish oils exert their beneficial effect by decreasing
the body's production of prostaglandin E2 which is believed to play an important
role in the initiation and progression of cancer. They conclude that supplementation
with dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, specifically fish oils with an
antioxidant such as vitamin E may offer significant palliative support to cancer
patients with end stage metastatic disease. Gogos, Charalambos A., et al. Dietary
omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids plus vitamin E restore immunodeficiency and
prolong survival for severely ill patients with generalized malignancy. Cancer,

Pancreatic Cancer and Enzymes
A study, published in the journal Pancreas, found that mice treated with pancreatic
enzymes survived significantly longer than those that did not. Tumor growth in the
enzyme-treated group was also significantly slower. Five years ago, a pilot study
of human cancer patients by one of the study authors, Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D.,
was published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer. Gonzalez later received a $1.4
million federal grant for a Phase III prospective clinical trial involving enzymes
for pancreatic cancer. This multi-year study is ongoing.
According to Dr. William Donald Kelley, D.D.S., M.S. in his book, "Cancer: Curing the Incurable,"
at least 86% of all cancer conditions could be adequately
treated and/or prevented by diet and pancreatic enzymes. He further
states that cancer is a symptom of inadequate and deficient protein metabolism.
Early in the 20th century, Dr. John Beard of the University of Edinburgh, discovered
that the bodys primary mechanism for destroying cancer is contained in pancreatin,
a secretion from the pancreas that, among other things, includes enzymes for digesting
protein. Enzymes digest or liquefy foods for absorption by the body. The use of large doses of pancreatic enzymes
containing Pancreatin, Trypsin, Chymotripsin, Papain,
and Bromelain is undergoing a 5-year phase III clinical trial in the USA.
This is called Gonzalez Regimen, after Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, of New York [who
based his work on the research of John Beard and William Donald Kelley, see further
down]. The trial is being funded and conducted by the National Cancer Institute
of USA. The funding decision was based on the results of a 1993 pilot study in which
patients lived an average seventeen (17) and a half (1/2) months – nearly triple
of what is expected for most patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.
Surgery Not A Cure For Cancer
Dr Eli G Jones, MD - There are about 50,000 people who die of cancer in
the United States annually. From my own experience in the treatment of cancer in
all its form, for forty years, I feel confident that ninety-five percent of these
cases could have been saved without an operation. Over the tombstones of the most
of them might be written, "Butchered in the name of science"
Overcoming Chemotherapy Sickness
A recent client of mine is a woman with breast, bone and liver cancer who started
taking Marine Phytoplankton about two weeks ago. Previously
unable to keep anything down and having very little energy, she is now very excited
and is experiencing a complete turnaround. She has worked up to two ounces a day,
has much improved energy, and can now eat with no problem. Her pH has come up from
5.6 to 6.2 as well. Prior to starting on this program, she had undergone chemotherapy
and radiation, which made her quite ill. Her blood work, after about 10 days, has
improved. Needless to say, she is ecstatic and grateful to have been exposed to
Marine Phytoplankton. Her family can't believe the change!" D. W.
Toxemia and Cancer - Why Internal Cleansing?
M.L. Tyler M.D - "Drugs do not cure, popular opinion notwithstanding.
Cure must come from within or there is no cure"
"You cannot poison your body into health with
drugs, chemo or radiation. The holistic approach treats the
whole animal, ignites the body's internal healing force and stimulates the body's
natural abilities to heal itself. "Health can only be achieved with healthful living"
The holistic approach treats the whole person, ignites the body's internal healing
force and stimulates the body's natural abilities to heal itself. The only real
defense against cancer is the immune system. Everyone
gets cancer every day but if the immune system is where it should be those cancer
cells are eliminated and we never know it. Once a person has developed cancer, even
though treatments get it into remission, it will recur again unless the body conditions
that allowed it to develop in the first place are corrected.
Dr. Joseph Rodrigo M.D - "Almost all diseases begin in the digestive
track. This includes diabetes, asthma, cancer,
Alzheimer's, heart disease, memory
loss, fibromyalgia, MS, and too many to
even list here. If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers to
your recovery and healing, start here. Your intestinal track is the origin of disease,
and it is also the origin of your healing. I cannot emphasize enough how important
the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health."
Shirley (author of this website) also overcame a lifetime of ill health without chemo, radiation or surgery
and lost 60 lbs in 3months effortlessly. The relationship between unhealthy eating and the development of disease is undeniable.
When most people get a cancer diagnosis their doctors are quick to prescribe drugs
and harsh treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. All of these
treatments have a harrowing effect on the body opening it up to a whole host of other problems.
Dr. H. H. Boeker M.D. believed that over 90 percent of diseases are caused
or complicated by toxins created in the intestinal tract by unhealthy
foods that are not properly eliminated." Auto-intoxication occurs when, due
to poor elimination, certain toxins escape from the bowel into the blood stream
and poison the body, causing a silent form of self-poisoning.
Substances that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the air we breathe,
the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we use, and the metabolic
waste produced inside us. Toxins build up in the body faster than they can be removed,
contributing to premature aging and chronic and degenerative diseases.
VelociTea Detox Tea is
a unique herbal blend of safe, all-natural ingredients designed to gently cleanse
the digestive tract and detoxify the body. Its name is taken from the traditional
name of one of the ingredients, a widely-used medicinal herb known as Holy Thistle.

The Politics of Cancer
"The National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society have misled and confused
the public and Congress by repeated false claims that we are winning the war against
cancer -- claims made to create public and Congressional support for massive increases
in budgetary appropriations." Samuel Epstein MD
"The medical establishment works closely with the drug multinationals whose main
objective is profits, and whose worst nightmare would be an epidemic of good health.
Lots of drugs MUST be sold. In order to achieve this, anything goes: lies, fraud,
and kickbacks. Doctors are the principal salespeople of the drug companies. They
are rewarded with research grants, gifts, and lavish perks. The principal buyers
are the public - from infants to the elderly - who MUST be thoroughly medicated
and vaccinated...at any cost! Why do the authorities forbid alternative medicine?
Because they are serving the industry, and the industry cannot make money with herbs,
vitamins, and homeopathy. They cannot patent natural remedies. That is why they
push synthetics. They control medicine, and that is why they are able to tell medical
schools what they can and cannot teach." Guylaine Lanctot, M.D
THE POLITICS OF CANCER - CANCER IS BIG BUSINESS!
When Healing Becomes a Crime: The Amazing Story of the Hoxsey Cancer Clinics
Harry Hoxsey claimed to cure cancer using herbal remedies, and thousands of patients swore that he healed them.
His Texas clinic became the world's largest privately owned cancer center with branches in seventeen states, and the
value of its therapeutic treatments was upheld by two federal courts. Even his arch-nemesis, the AMA, admitted his treatment was
effective against some forms of cancer. But the medical establishment
refused an investigation, branding Hoxsey the worst cancer
quack of the century and forcing his clinic to Tijuana, Mexico, where it continues to claim very high success rates.
Modern laboratory tests have confirmed the anticancer properties of Hoxsey's herbs, and a federal government-sponsored report
is now calling for a major reconsideration of the Hoxsey therapy. When Healing Becomes a Crime exposes the overall failure of the War on
Cancer, while revealing how yesterday's "unorthodox" treatments are emerging as tomorrow's medicine.
NOTE: The Hoxcey Formula has been renamed as
Skin Cancer Epidemic - Cansema Black Salve and Tumors or Skin Cancer
The United States is in the midst of a of skin cancer epidemic, according to
a report in from the Mayo Clinic.
The report goes on to state, One in five Americans will develop skin cancer, and
a person's risk of the disease doubles if that person has had five or more sunburns,
according to the Mayo statistics. Basal and squamous cell carcinomas, the most common
and treatable types of skin cancers, had long been considered a problem only for
people over 50, according to the report. But Mayo researchers report that percentage
of women under 40 with the more common type, basal cell, tripled between 1976 and
2003, while the rate of squamous cell cancers increased 400 percent.
The standard procedure for skin cancer treatment in US hospitals is surgery,
chemotherapy, and even radiation, with no significant cure rate! While there are
many variations of the Black Salve herbal compound, the man who first spread the
word about and healing from black
salve was a man named Harry Hoxsey, founder of the "Hoxsey
Method". Hoxsey is the great-grandson of John Hoxsey, an American physician who
discovered a remarkably effective cancer cure in 1840 after watching horses with
cancer cure themselves by grazing on specific herbs they instinctually searched out.
Melanoma can be beaten, 7 survivors tell how they beat Melanoma, even at stage 4
For over three decades, Harry Hoxsey (1901-1974), a self-taught healer, cured
many cancer patients using an herbal remedy reportedly
handed down by his great-grandfather. By the 1950s, the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic in Dallas
was the world's largest private cancer center, with branches in seventeen states.
Born in Illinois, the charismatic practitioner of herbal folk medicine faced unrelenting
opposition and harassment from a hostile medical establishment. Nevertheless, two
federal courts upheld the "therapeutic value" of Hoxsey's internal tonic. Even his
archenemies, the American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration,
admitted that his treatment could cure some forms of cancer. A Dallas judge ruled
in federal court that Hoxsey's therapy was "comparable to surgery, radium, and x-ray"
in its effectiveness, without the destructive side effects of those treatments.
But in the 1950s, at the tail end of the McCarthy era, Hoxsey's clinics were shut
down. The AMA, NCI, and FDA organized a "conspiracy" to "suppress" a fair, unbiased
assessment of Hoxsey's methods, according to a 1953 federalreport to Congress. Hoxsey's
Dallas clinic closed its doors in 1960, and three years later, at Hoxsey'srequest,
Mildred Nelson, R.N., his long-time chief nurse, moved the operation to Tijuana, Mexico.
Cancer fighting nutrients become deadly when combined with chlorinated tap water
There is a perception among many people that bottled water is somehow more
healthy or pure than water from their tap. This is simply an illusion of marketing.
A four-year study by the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), released
in 1999, found that one-fifth of the sampled bottled waters contained known
neurotoxins and carcinogens such as styrene, toluene and xylene. Another NRDC
study found that, out of 103 brands of bottled water, one-third contained traces
of arsenic and E. coli. This means that out of a sample of 1,000 bottles sold
in the U.S., at least 300 would have some level of chemical contamination. It
is well known that the average city water today contains over 500 chemicals
that do not belong in it. Part of this is due to the fact that most delivery
systems in the U.S. include cement, asbestos pipes, cast iron, PVC (porous to
certain solvents, herbicides and pesticides) and that lead, cadmium and other
toxic metals leach out of valves and couplings of pipes between a water treatment
plant and a faucet in the home.
Some of natures most valuable and essential anti-cancer and anti-disease
phytochemical nutrients which are commonly found in food have been discovered
to form deadly cancer causing substances when consumed or combined with chlorinated
tap water. This discovery includes familiar foods including soy, fruits, vegetables,
tea, many health products, and even some vitamins. Research has proven that
these essential nutrients are the exact same families of compounds, that even
in infinitesimal amounts have been tormenting the water treatment and chlorine
industries for years.
Water The Great Healer and Detoxifier!
F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. - "Every function inside the body is
regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements,
oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Without sufficient
water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not receive
the vital elements that water supplies. Water is also needed to carry toxic waste
away from the cells. In fact, there are at least 50 reasons why the body needs sufficient
water on a regular, everyday basis. Without sufficient water to constantly wet all
parts, your body's drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed
chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of water
for the drought-stricken areas. When histamine and its subordinate "drought managers"
come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my
research that I mentioned earlier."
Benefits of Alkaline, Ionized Water
Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D.
Water has the ability to attract and accumulate bio-energy. It also stores an energy
memory of harmful or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed in the past. Chlorinated
tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints.
It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as
well as 'dead'. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health
care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device
in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.
Revisiting Accepted Wisdom in the Management of Breast Cancer
Misconceptions and illusions prevail in the management of breast cancer." "Despite
evidence that mastectomy, radiation following lumpectomy, axillary node dissection,
or intensive follow-up surveillance have little impact on survival, these practices
are adhered to tenaciously. The extent to which current treatment for breast cancer
succeeds in prolonging life remains open to question. Many accepted ideas and interventions
are perilously disconnected from their true merit. The imperative for doctors to
do something sometimes contradicts their pledge to do no harm. Read the testimonial
of complete breast cancer recovery with no-drugs nutritional methods
Cancer - Cause, Cure and Cover-up
well-known doctors of Bombay, Dr. Mani Kotare and Dr. Lopa Mehta, have written a
revolutionary book titled "Cancer Myths and Realities about its cause and cure".
They write: "If any cancer patient takes routine allopathic
treatment his/her life is shortened and death becomes painful whereas those who
don't opt for the treatment survive longer and their death is painless." They further
write, "For the diagnosis of the disease it is not wise to undergo biopsy too, as
because of doing biopsy cancer spreads speedily to other parts of the body." That
is why Dr. Kothari had neither done biopsy nor given any treatment for cancer to
his parents suffering from cancer.
The Answer to Cancer: Is Never Giving It a Chance to Start
by Hari Sharma MD
"I usually have to see cancer patients after they have a problem," confesses
Dr. Hari Sharma, M.D., author of three previous books, and numerous scientific research
articles on cancer. "If they had just made a few preventive adjustments in time,
they would never have had to become cancer patients. It's heart rending. Cancer
is difficult to treat yet actually easy and simple to prevent, once you know how.
Then, why not prevent it?"
"The public hasn't had the first clue about how to prevent cancer. This book
provides that clue and more. This offers effective prevention if people follow the
guidelines." -Christopher S. Clark, M.D.
