I had to ask myself this question after reading a blog entry entitled The Cancer Cure THEY Don’t Want You to Know About, by a writer called Healthseeker. He spoke about apricot kernels and a substance called Xanthohumol as effective, non-toxic treatments for cancer. He actually described cancer as the result of a deficiency of vitamin B-17 (also known as amygdalin, closely related to Laetrile). Xanthohumol is an antioxidant that is derived from hops. I don’t know much about it.
Although the article was not the best, I thought that the author gave someone enough information to stimulate readers to do some research to verify what he said. I must admit that there were no references, no links, no substantiation of anything the author said in the article. But that was not what really surprised me.
The article was not that long, and was very easy to read. I had found that there were a lot of comments about the article. I saw just what I expected in the Comments section. There were a lot of comments that were attacks on the author and what he was saying. They also lambasted him for not giving any links or references to support his claims. That is very understandable. But it was something else that surprised me.
After reading a number of comments that attacked the author, I had finally had enough. I decided to write my own comment, and knew that I would have to bring in more support and references that the blog author left out. So I wrote what is found below:
I find it very disconcerting to see how many intelligent people fall for the hype and lies that are spewed by the Medical Establishment. Although Healthkicker wrote this article with no references, there is a lot of truth about what vitamin B-17/Laetrile.
The simple fact is that you will never find any ‘double-blind, fully randomized’ experiments on any alternative cancer treatments because the Medical Establishment that makes billions and trillions of dollars will not perform any honest studies be made public. Check out Dr. Ralph Moss and how he documented the fraud that they performed at Sloan-Kettering during the studies on vitamin B-17/Laetrile.
I’m a scientist like any other, and would LOVE to see the studies that back up the efficacy of many alternative cancer treatments, and the absolute abysmal ‘success’ rate of conventional cancer treatments. Unfortunately, most logical, intelligent people have been duped by the Cancer Establishment, and do not consider the VAST amounts of money, status, prestige and power that is connected to the status quo in medicine.
This is why scores of people, from MD-PhD’s to laypeople, who have found natural, non-toxic, highly effective treatments for cancer have ALL met with the exact same fate. Ridicule, suppression, legal attacks, scorn, and smear campaigns. It has nothing to do with the actual effectiveness or lack of it, but everything to do with the profits and the control over them. Do you REALLY believe that after 50-100 years of intense, top-level research and hundreds of billions of dollars spent, that the ‘treatments’ that are best are chemotherapy, radiation and surgery? The same treatments? That is direct evidence of the fraud. If it weren’t fraud, then why the huge expenditure of money and human labor if we already had the best treatments 50 years ago?
If you really want to understand the Cancer and Medical Establishments, you have to look outside of the science, and into the social structure of these organizations. All throughout history, the pioneers who have challenged the status quo have always been powerfully attacked by those who profit from being in control of the Establishment. If you don’t investigate, analyze and understand this point, you will never understand this, and you will continue to think that cancer is this complex, incurable condition, whilst people who come out of these imposed Dark Ages and embrace the truth, cure themselves without using poisons as medicine.
After I wrote this, I found that no one responded to anything I said in my comment. I thought that I was going to receive a lot of attacks in the comments section, but I got SILENCE… They kept on debating and attacking the other people making comments defending Healthkicker. There was one person, Whistleblower, who was being tag-team attacked by the people who trust and believe in the Medical Establishment and the Cancer Establishment.
What really frustrates and astonishes me is how many intelligent people are totally duped into believing the lies and deceptions foisted by the Medical Establishment. It is very frustrating because most people suffer from the Stockholm Syndrome–they actually defend their captors, in direct contradiction to their own best interests. It is a testament to the power of social conditioning to see how seemingly intelligent people can actually defend the use of poisons as medicines. How they can defend giving a corrupt Medical Establishment billions and billions of dollars to pretend that they’re trying to find a cure for cancer, and actually believe that some group of cells is smarter than all of the Ph.D.’s and M.D.’s of the last 50-100 years. If they can’t find a cure after 50+ years of intensive research and hundreds of billions of dollars spent, they’re either: 1. Incompetent and will never find a cure, or 2. They’re not trying, and are actually purposely stalling and failing so that they can continue to get the big money. No sense in ‘killing the golden goose’ by finding a cure!
One thing I want to make clear is that I do not believe that all physicians are in agreement with the status quo. Many are disgusted with this state of affairs. But many are not willing to risk incurring the wrath of the Medical Establishment. It is difficult to expect someone to risk destroying their career that they worked 20+ years to enter. But many physicians do not think for themselves and just accept the pronouncements from the AMA, Big Pharma and other organizations that have assumed and seized the authority to do what they want. As I always say, do your own research so that you don’t have to support Medical Establishment profits with your own pain and misery.
