An extra four months of life with fewer side effects compared to chemotherapy


I don’t mean to sound crass or unsympathetic, but it just appears to me that the bar is set extremely low if it is cause for celebration and accolades that an immunotherapy drug gives someone an extra 4 months of life when compared to chemotherapy.

It would seem that a real cause for celebration would be for something more along the lines of 4 extra years of life with fewer side effects than chemotherapy. Or 14 extra years of life.

I guess that it’s all relative. We know that chemotherapy isn’t a cure. But it’s recommended to the majority of cancer patients. I wonder why that is.

I noticed in the article that they tested the new immunology treatment relative to chemotherapy. They don’t dare test it against something like Essiac or IV vitamin C because it would probably beat Big Pharma treatments so badly that nobody would ever consider using either.

Einstein is attributed to saying that the repeating of something that isn’t working is akin to insanity. Or maybe it’s craftiness. Or an orchestrated strategy to maximize profits by not killing the chemotherapy gravy train with something relatively non-toxic and highly effective in treating cancer.

Regardless of whether or not you believe that forces and people in Big Pharma are hiding cheap cures, one thing you can’t deny is that oncology is stubbornly bound to using chemotherapy and radiation to treat cancer. It’s been in use for many decades, with few to no signs of letting up.

If you’re like me, you would prefer more objectivity and truth in science. But unfortunately, politics and profits often dictate what it studied and what does and doesn’t get reported. We’d be naïve to deny the effect that bias and other objectives play in science. It’s not a comfortable thing to admit, but it’s the truth.

The difference between us and them is that we readily admit that we have bias. Big Pharma and others who drumbeat the dogmatic call for ‘science’ are often not willing to even admit the bias in their ‘science.’  And it’s a lot worse for the science zealots who call people that question what is called ‘science’ all sorts of names that are an attempt to destroy and malign us without truly answering the questions and concerns that we discuss.

Or worse yet, they are not willing to view science as a process, but view it as a form of religion that cannot be questioned or challenged. It took me a while to truly understand that the way that science is currently structured, it often misses the essence of truth. And it often has more in common with religion than with what could be known as the scientific method.

With all that said, we refer to this article that shows once again that progress in oncology is moving along at a snail’s pace, at best.  Regardless of what you believe about cancer and Big Pharma dogma or conspiracies to hide cures, we have to admit that the cost to benefit ratio for all that has been spent (money and man-hours of research performed) on cancer research is paltry even if you’re the most optimistic person who believes everything that the PR says about oncology.

At this rate, they will never have any cures that aren’t toxic. And they will only have expensive, pharmaceutical-based or expensive procedures that are even more costly than the ones that aren’t cures already. The country will go bankrupt if costs continue to rise. Many patients are already going bankrupt from expensive medical treatments.

It’s really time for a paradigm change in oncology, among other things.

Patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer survive four months longer with fewer side effects on an immunotherapy drug called atezolizumab compared to chemotherapy, according to a phase 3 clinical trial published in The Lancet.

The trial enrolled 1225 advanced non-small-cell lung cancer patients who have no more treatment options, but this study used an early analysis of the first 850 patients from the trial. Half of the group were given atezolizumab and the other half were given docetaxel chemotherapy, which is the standard treatment for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.

Patients given atezolizumab — a drug that blocks the programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) protein — survived for an average of 13.8 months, compared with 9.6 months for those on chemotherapy.

As well as the benefits in survival, atezolizumab also had fewer side effects than chemotherapy with 14.8% (90 of 609) of those given the drug having grade three or four side effects compared with 42.7% (247 of 578) of those given chemotherapy. However, 46 (of 609, 7.6%) of the patients given atezolizumab still gave up treatment due to side effects, as well as 108 (of 578 patients, 18.7%) of those on chemotherapy.

“Lung cancer is the most common cancer affecting 1.8 million people each year worldwide. It is also the leading cause of cancer death worldwide and survival remains stubbornly low. Recently, important advances in the treatment of the disease have come from immunotherapies that target the PD-L1 and PD-1 pathway,” said Dr Achim Rittmeyer, lead author, University Goettingen, Germany. “Atezolizumab reinvigorates patients’ immune systems against cancer, and our trial has shown that this has significant results for their survival.”

Other immunotherapies for non-small-cell lung cancer, such as nivolumab and pembrolizumab, are designed to block PD-L1’s counterpart, the programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) which is located on the immune cell surface. Normally the PD-L1 and PD-1 proteins signal to one another to activate the immune system to attack tumours.

Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC


The next time somebody tells you how ‘high and mighty’ ‘science’ is, you can think about this report on some of the shenanigans so-called ‘scientists’ have been perpetrating.

I’m not saying that ALL of them operate like this, but the major take-away from this is that you can’t just go around blindly believing what experts and researchers say just because they say that it’s ‘science,’ or you’re leaving yourself vulnerable to falsehoods under the guise of truth.

It’s time for people to start using their thinking and reasoning faculties more because at this point there are a lot of profiteering and cronyism going on in science and research, as well as other fields of endeavor. But here we focus on health and how profits can have more impact on your health and treatments than truth.

Many times, scientific conclusions are reached based on political and economic factors more so than on the efficacy of the treatment. That’s how we can have poisons and toxins being used as medicines when there are safer, cheaper, more effective options. The more effective, safer, cheaper options are not profitable for Big Pharma, and they are not under Big Pharma control. So they are not marketed or promoted. Marketing and promotions is literally selling things for a profit. If there’s no profit in cheap cures, they will not be made known to the public. That’s simple business practice.

Just because someone is a scientist or physician doesn’t mean that they have the power to override entrenched financial interests that manipulate the regulation, funding and dissemination of research findings and treatment standards, nor that they necessarily want to. And it also doesn’t mean that patients will receive the best treatments. Unfortunately, patients usually receive the most profitable treatments for Big Pharma.

Big Pharma is highly interested in keeping most people taking vaccines because they make big money on them. But most people don’t know that vaccines also insure that people will be sicker over the long term so that it keeps people paying customers to the Medical Industry. This means that vaccines help raise long term profits for the Medical Establishment.

Find out how you can stop your cancer…


Statistics don’t lie, but statisticians certainly can. In his book, “Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC,” investigative journalist James Grundvig exposes what really goes on at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In it, he reveals how the agency has engaged in massive fraud, misinformation and manipulation of vaccine information. What made Grundvig write such a book?

“A couple of reasons,” he says. “One is I have an autistic son who’s 16 years old now. He’s one of the 5,000 cases kicked out of vaccine court [for] thimerosal poisoning.

Number two, I’m first generation Norwegian-American. Poul Thorsen, the main manipulator — but not the only one — is of Danish descent. I was introduced to an alliance [that asked me] to track down Thorsen over in Denmark, a culture and country I know very well.”

Danish Scientist Charged in Vaccine Research Scam

Thorsen is a major player and an essential character in this real-life drama. In 2011, he was charged with 13 counts of wire fraud and nine counts of money laundering. A federal grand jury alleged Thorsen stole over $1 million from autism research funding between February 2004 and June 2008.

He stole the money while serving as the principal investigator for a program studying the relationship between autism and exposure to vaccines. At the time, The Copenhagen Post reported that:1

“… [Thorsen] submitted over a dozen false invoices from the CDC for research expenses to Aarhus University … instructing them to transfer the funds to a CDC account, which was in fact his personal account …

Thorsen’s research on autism is widely known in academic circles, where he was until this week a highly respected figure. A paper of his on the subject, which is known as ‘The Danish Study,’ is quoted extensively to refute the autism vaccine connection.”

As of 2014, Thorsen was permanently expelled from Denmark’s university hospital system. Thorsen has been a fugitive for the past five years. Yet his whereabouts are no secret. As noted by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in a 2015 Forbes article:2

“The fact that he is roaming free and is easy to find, despite the U.S. Federal indictment … suggests a lack of enthusiasm by HHS and CDC to press for his capture and extradition.

The agency undoubtedly fears that a public trial would expose the pervasive corruption throughout CDC’s vaccine division and the fragility of the science supporting CDC’s claims about thimerosal safety.”

The Master Manipulator

Thorsen’s spectacular demise was likely the result of an inside tip to Aarhus University. But was he really the sole person responsible for the creation of these manipulated studies? According to Grundvig’s investigation, the CDC appears to have had a clear hand in the deception.

In 1999, Thorsen — who had earned his Ph.D. in Denmark the year before — was invited to the CDC in Atlanta as a foreign visiting scientist. He arrived at a time when there was a lot of discussion between vaccine makers and the CDC to remove thimerosal from vaccines.

Thorsen ended up being hired full-time to conduct five studies on Danish people, as the Danes had a preexisting database covering the entire population.

In the U.S., no federal health authority was collecting this kind of comprehensive vaccination and health data. “That was the beginning of five corrupt Danish studies that were done: four on thimerosal; one on MMR,” Grundvig says.

The Link Between Thimerosal and Autism

To this day, most doctors will tell you the science is settled and there’s no link between vaccines and autism. In reality, the science is FAR from settled. In 2000, two secret meetings took place. The first one, in May, took place in Puerto Rico. This meeting covered aluminum adjuvants in vaccines. The second meeting took place in Simpsonwood5 three weeks later.

“In those meetings, they talked about how they all realized — the scientists within those meetings, from the CDC, from college institutions, from Big Pharma vaccine makers — all agreed that thimerosal is a problem, and aluminum is a problem. But they can’t change overnight and lose that kind of money …

These two meetings produced results from foreign scientists, like Dr. Thomas Verstraeten out of Belgium. The CDC realized they had a major problem on their hands with the general public. They found thimerosal … is dangerous to the brain, especially of babies, infants and children.”

The CDC desperately needed to prove there’s no link between vaccines and autism, and Thorsen ended up being the guy hired to produce that evidence. Had the CDC not covered up the truth, we’d probably have an entirely different discussion on vaccines today.

As noted by Grundvig, some of Thorsen’s studies kept getting extended because the CDC simply wasn’t comfortable with the results; even with manipulation, they kept showing an association between the number of vaccines and the rise of autism.

“What’s amazing is Thorsen coming from Denmark. Thimerosal was banned in Denmark in 1991 — fully enacted in 1992. Vaccines today in Denmark have no thimerosal whatsoever. So, you have Thorsen agreeing to do whatever the CDC wanted to, which was manipulate the data, to lose data, to produce results that would favor [thimerosal],” Grundvig says.

CDC Whistleblower Confirms Vaccine-Autism Cover-Up

In his book, Grundvig explains how, were the studies done properly using valid scientific criteria, they would have revealed some incredible insights. For starters, they would have shown that autism is in fact correlated with thimerosal exposure.  Brian Hooker is one of the researchers who has gone back to re-evaluate Thorsen’s studies. In 2017, Danish scientists will again redo the studies, to hopefully settle the matter.

Thorsen was hardly the only manipulator of data at the CDC, however. Dr. William Thompson, a research scientist at the CDC’s National Center for Immunizations and Respiratory Diseases (NCIR), is another. He co-authored four studies refuting a link between the MMR vaccine and autism, as well as thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism.

According to Thompson, one of the studies found that African-American boys who received the MMR vaccine before the age of 36 months had an increased risk for autism.8 He also maintains that other CDC studies have found a relationship between thimerosal and tics, which are associated with autism.9

Clearly, there’s no way for the truth to get out unless we have skilled investigative journalists like Grundvig bringing us the full story. After that, it’s a matter of sharing the information, because you can be sure this information will not appear in The New York Times or on your local news station. It’s suppressed by design.

Thimerosal Is Still a Major Vaccine Ingredient

In the early 2000s there was a major push to remove thimerosal from vaccines, but it never took the form of law. Instead, vaccine makers were encouraged to reduce or eliminate thimerosal in their vaccines on a voluntary basis. Some did so, but according to Grundvig, even vaccines that claim to be thimerosal-free are not entirely devoid of it.

“If you read the labels, it says “thimerosal-depleted” … They remove [thimerosal] in the process. It’s filtered out, but it’s not filtered out 100 percent. There’s still thimerosal in all of the thimerosal-containing vaccines as there were before, just a lot less. However, in the flu vaccine, it’s full bore thimerosal.

It’s the cheapest and fastest way to make it. I don’t think that vaccine makers are interested in changing the 20th century recipe to making vaccines. It’s cheap and fast. That’s all they care about. They do not care about safety. They don’t care about children’s health. With poor children’s health, they are able to take care of children, on the other end … with drugs and treatments and so forth. They continuously make money off every American citizen out there,” Grundvig says.

More Information

If you have an interest in vaccine safety and/or autism, you won’t want to miss out on Grundvig’s book, “Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC.” It clearly reveals why we cannot blindly trust our federal health agencies.

We must educate ourselves and understand the political and financial dynamics that underlie the recommendations coming from these agencies. Failing to do so can quite literally be dangerous to your health. In this case, Grundvig has done a remarkable job of explaining the situation at the CDC that has allowed the claim that thimerosal-containing vaccines have no role in autism.

This is not to say that there are no other factors involved in autism. Evidence suggests Roundup and other glyphosate-containing pesticides may play a role. Ditto for other toxic exposures and electromagnetic field (EMF) exposures. Having an unbalanced gut microbiome also appears to influence the outcome. There are many variables that, when combined, can result in autism. Still, that does not mean we should give vaccines a free pass.

Projections suggest that within the next 25 years, half of all children will be autistic. There is no way a culture can survive with half of the population being in the autistic spectrum. We’re looking at the collapse of society if the rise in autism isn’t stopped or reversed, and that means addressing ALL known factors.

Cancer Survivors Have Higher Risk of Severe Heart Attack


This is a testament to the fact that chemotherapy and radiation are very damaging to the body. Although they say in this study that the subsequent heart disease doesn’t lead to higher rates of death, it has to have an adverse effect on your quality of life. What good is a cancer treatment if it gives you heart disease? Wouldn’t a better approach be to use more healthy, non-toxic cancer treatments that don’t give you other diseases?

Another notable part of this article is that they admit that most cancer survivors (who we must assume have undergone conventional cancer treatments) end up dying from the cancer later on. I would submit that they are more likely dying from the toxic cancer treatments.

If the cancer treatment is giving patients heart disease, and if they’re dying from cancer anyway, what’s the use? Especially when you factor in that cancer patients are spending an average of around $50-100,000 for their treatments. In short, we’re paying high rates for no cures, or even worse, paying for treatments that extend your life while making you steadily sicker. Sounds agonizing to me.

Also, the article states that there are “downstream illnesses and side effects to an extent never encountered before’ which would seem to indicate that all these new cancer treatments are causing more side effects and illnesses subsequent to treatment. This is just more evidence that these conventional treatments are dangerous. They also go on to state that cancer survivors are 3 times more likely to die of non-heart-related causes. This would appear to support the contention that these cancer treatments are damaging the entire body. We know that chemotherapy and radiation are extremely toxic, so it wouldn’t be surprising that it is causing more death after treatment.

The question is when people are going to stop submitting to poisons masquerading as medicine. We already know that Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment are not going to stop offering their expensive, highly profitable toxic cancer treatments. As long as people keep taking them and paying for them, they will continue to sell them to us. And we will continue to suffer and die from them.

(emphasis is mine)

THURSDAY, Dec. 1, 2016 (HealthDay News) — Cancer survivors are at increased risk for the most severe type of heart attack and require close attention to their heart health, a new study suggests.

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., reviewed data on more than 2,300 patients who suffered this type of heart attack, called ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). One in 10 had a history of cancer, the investigators found.

“We’ve watched cancer survivorship increase over the past two-and-a-half decades, which is wonderful. But, it has led to new challenges, such as handling of downstream illnesses and side effects to an extent never encountered before,” said study senior author Dr. Joerg Herrmann. He is an interventional cardiologist at the clinic.

“As cardiologists, we wanted to know if cancer and its therapies left these patients debilitated from a cardiovascular disease standpoint,” he said in a Mayo news release.

While the study found that cancer survivors had a higher rate of heart attack, not all of those attacks proved fatal. In fact, cancer survivors did not have a higher risk of death caused by heart attacks, the study authors noted. Instead, they were three times more likely to die of non-heart-related causes.

After their heart attack, patients with a history of cancer were more likely to arrive at the hospital with cardiogenic shock, where the heart suddenly can’t pump enough blood.

These patients were also more likely to receive intra-aortic balloon pump therapy, in which a device is inserted to help the heart pump blood. The need for this treatment may indicate a reduction in the heart’s ability to pump blood, the researchers said.

Cancer survivors were also more likely to be hospitalized for heart failure during follow-up. But those who received proper medical treatment were not at increased risk of dying from heart disease. These patients eventually died from their cancer, the study authors said.

“This study supports the importance of cardiologists and oncologists working together to care for these patients,” Herrmann said. This type of care is known as cardio-oncology.

“Clearly, our goal is that the cancer patients of today do not become the cardiac patients of the future and, if they do, that we comprehensively see them through,” he added.

The study was published Dec. 1 in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Some Honesty About How to Heal and Cure Cancer


This is probably one of the best articles I’ve seen on healing, curing and understanding cancer.  Dr Sircus speaks on disease and how we as individuals need to start taking more responsibility for our health conditions.

He also speaks of the paradigm shift that is necessary for us to undergo before we can actually find solutions for cancer.  His idea is simply to replace pharmaceutical poisons with good substances that actually aid the body and assist the healing process. No disease can ever be cured with pharmaceutical drugs. They’re only great for the people that sell them to the tune of billions and trillions of dollars.

Some of his recommendations may sound ridiculous to people that have been indoctrinated by Big Pharma and Disease Industry propaganda that drones all over the mainstream media incessantly, but what has the Medical Establishment come up with that makes more sense than this? At the rate Big Pharma is going, only wealthy people will be able to afford orthodox medical treatments. And that’s if you don’t think we’re there already, considering that many cancer treatments cost thousands of dollars a month.

And the icing on the cake is that even with all of the enormous amount of money we’ve spent on research, they really don’t have any answers for cancer or any other chronic diseases. The only answers are expensive and mostly temporary at best. The new ‘miracle’ cancer treatments, like immunotherapy, are even more expensive than the conventional ones. And immunology can be just as toxic, if not moreso, than chemotherapy in some instances.

The only way that people will find cures will be on their own or from unorthodox sources because Big Pharma, the government and the Medical Establishment are profiting way too much for them to have any degree of objectivity about anything outside of what they promote and profit from. They’ve proven that repeatedly. They won’t even admit that they have any bias in their opinions, studies or anything else. And they stubbornly cling to the idea that cancer is caused by genetics and that the future of disease treatment will be individualized for each person. But of course, this is going to involve expensive genetic testing and custom drugs designed just for you. So you know that this isn’t going to be cheap.

You can either take back your power and start to learn how to cure your cancer, or you can become another painful statistic of the Big Pharma meat grinder.  Search and find your own truth. Even the so-called successes that survive chemotherapy and radiation usually end up with long-term side effects, one of which is what they call ‘secondary cancers.’

Imagine that. The cancer treatment causes cancer.  This is the level of thinking that modern cancer treatment/oncology finds itself. They can only get away with it because most people don’t know, or are too trusting or confused to figure out what’s really going on with this. This is really pathetic. Profits over people and maintaining disease instead of either curing it or preventing it from happening. And the rapid and thorough destruction of anyone who doesn’t tow the Big Pharma line. Whoever said cancer treatments, cancer research, journal publications, the mainstream media and health care don’t have a huge dose of politics, cronyism, profiteering and dogma inside hasn’t done their homework.

Learn 5 Things You Can Do to Stop Your Cancer COLD…

Increasing our Power to Heal and Cure Cancer

By Dr. Mark Sircus

Through the last ten years, as I have developed Natural Allopathic Medicine, I have introduced new principles and practices to treat cancer and other diseases. I have constantly sought to increase the healing power of doctors and other health care practitioners as well as give power to the patients themselves. It has been a challenge to lay down new tracks through the mountain passes of confusion, lies, deception and even perceptual blindness that arise from medical paradigms that cannot glean wisdom from other competing paradigms.

My medical revolution is simple. Replace dangerous, ineffective, expensive pharmaceuticals with more effective, safe and inexpensive basic medicinals. However, the mainstream world of medicine is stubborn and profit driven choosing to remain with the dangerous, expensive and ineffective medicines—no matter how many people die from these hazardous medications.

Self-Confrontation Helps

We all have a healthy and unhealthy self, a light and a dark side. A part that is not perfect. A part that is a bit lazy. A part of us resists change and clings to the status quo of comfortable habits. There is, in most of us, a natural resistance to making the effort to grow and heal. Most of us would rather take the easy way out and hope for the best. That is what we have doctors for. Aren’t they the ones who are supposed to take all the responsibility and do all the healing and medical work?

Bottom line principle to healing and recovering from cancer: The lazier we are the more it will cost and the longer it will take to recover. The real power to heal and cure lies within each one of us and for a cancer patient application of that power starts with water, then the breath. In fact, the best and most important cancer cures cost little to no money and we should use them no matter how much money we have to throw at our problems.

Disease is not a mistake, it is a natural consequence of many factors coming together, not all of which we have control over. Disease is often a consequence of mistakes we have made in the past that we have to rectify in the present and in the future. Disease is also a matter of ignorance for most of us are not even aware of what we are doing wrong so we can start doing things right. Moreover, even when our life depends on it we are fed misinformation, which just maintains our ignorance and uncertainty of will.

Fastest Way to Winning the War against Cancer – Water Fast

Few of us are into fasting and even fewer of us appreciate the healing power of water. However, it behooves us to understand to have a reference point to what is possible if we really bring our will into play when attempting to heal ourselves from cancer.

To wrap one’s mind around a simple medical healing process like a water fast and how devastating that can be to cancer cells one has first confront one’s laziness with even the idea of not eating. When one goes on a water fast one slams a fist right into the gut of cancer by starving them of glucose so we have to be tough and apply our strength of will to our fasting. Will by the way is something of the heart. Whatever we love to do, we have plenty of will for.

Cancer cells differ from healthy cells in the way they create energy. In cancer cells, damaged mitochondria and low oxygen conditions force cells to use fermentation to get their energy meaning they are completely hooked on high levels of glucose. This glucose comes mainly from carbohydrates. If you starve your body of glucose, you effectively starve cancer cells to death.

Dr. Philipp Mergenthaler and Dr. Andreas Meisel showed that depriving a cell of glucose, while giving it plenty of oxygen at the same time, blocks glycolysis and therefore forces the cell to revive its mitochondria and use the Krebs cycle for energy or just die.

In 2008 a group led by Dr. Valter Longo, a biologist at the University of Southern California (USC), published a paper suggesting that a short, sharp course of fasting—not eating at all for a few days, as opposed to months of eating much less than normal—could make ordinary, non-cancerous cells more resistant to the side-effects of chemotherapy, at least in yeast and mice. He also asserts that fasting will strengthen the immune system and help unleash its wrath on cancer cells.

Dr. Longo asserts that fasting can actually make cancerous cells more susceptible to chemotherapy than they otherwise might be. Cancerous mice treated with a combination of chemotherapy and fasting had better survival chances and smaller tumors, for several different types of cancer, than those treated with either fasting or chemotherapy alone. In some cases, the combination treatment eradicated even metastasized cancers completely.

An increasing number of medical scientists know that the most logical, effective, safe, necessary and inexpensive way to treat cancer is to cut off the supply of food to tumors and cancer cells, starving them with a lack of glucose. The therapeutic strategy for selective starvation of tumors by dietary modification is one of the principle forms of therapy that is necessary for cancer patients to win their war on cancer.

Researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah were one of the first to discover that sugar “feeds” tumors. The research published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences said, “It’s been known since 1923 that tumor cells use a lot more glucose than normal cells. Our research helps show how this process takes place, and how it might be stopped to control tumor growth,” says Don Ayer, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Oncological Sciences at the University of Utah.

Dr. Thomas Graeber, a professor of molecular and medical pharmacology, has investigated how the metabolism of glucose affects the biochemical signals present in cancer cells. In research published June 26, 2012 in the journal Molecular Systems Biology, Graeber and his colleagues demonstrate that glucose starvation—that is, depriving cancer cells of glucose—activates a metabolic and signaling amplification loop that leads to cancer cell death as a result of the toxic accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS).[1]

Depriving your body of calories effectively treats cancer and nothing will do that better than a water fast. Normal cells respond to fasting by going into survival mode. They slow down, conserve resources and go into healing and regeneration mode.

Cancer cells on the other hand plow full steam ahead and this leaves them vulnerable. When denied food, they do not have the ability to slow down their metabolism until food becomes available again. They need a constant flood of glucose – i.e. blood sugar, which is the product of metabolizing carbohydrates. Without their favorite growth food, tumor growth slows and cancer cells die.

The ketogenic (no-carb) diet, the Gerson diet, and the macrobiotic diet all work because they practically starve you of carbohydrates. Many decades ago The American Cancer Society said, “Cancer is not caused or cured by any known diet.” Nothing has changed in all these years meaning oncologists are working with their patients with blinders on. The American Diabetes Association maintains a similar position with diabetes yet what we eat and refrain from eating is incredibly important to life and health.

Many studies on diet and cancer prove the connection between a no-carbohydrate diet and dramatically reduced cancer growth rates. Add fasting to whatever else you are doing, and you starve cancer cells even faster.

Fasting can heal many common diseases, because it allows the body to rest, detoxify, and concentrate all its energy on healing instead of digestion. Fasting can be as recharging for the organism as sleeping. During a longer fast, the body reaches out for all degenerative and foreign tissues in the body like fibroid tumors, moles, bacteria, viruses and any other sick and unnecessary tissues.

Precautions: I am not making a universal prescription for water fasts for all cancer patients at all stages of the cancer process. Generally, up to 3 day fasting should be safe for most people, but I recommend to start slowly – first skipping just one meal, then one day of fasting per week and only then go to 3 day fasting. If you have any doubts about fasting or wish to fast longer, please consult with your health practitioner. If your doctor is totally against fasting, you can find naturopathic doctors or other alternative practitioners.

Choose the type of fast that works best for you. If you are going through chemotherapy, remember that fasting not only makes your chemotherapy more effective, it can also reduce your side effects. Better yet, choose a natural form of chemotherapy like hemp oil and blast your healthy cells and the cancer cells both with waves of oxygen, voltage and alkalinity. There is not a cancer cell alive that will enjoy increases in oxygen, voltage and alkalinity while healthy cells will rejoice.

If you are eating a Western Diet/Standard American Diet, rich in meat, dairy, refined sugar, salt, oils, and processed junk food, you are putting toxins in your body faster than it can eliminate them. Over time, these toxins accumulate inside you until there is a tipping point at which your body is so overloaded that essential systems and functions begin to break down. This accumulation of toxins from an unhealthy diet and our environment are major contributors to chronic disease including cancer.

Fasting on water is not generally recommended for late stage cancer when a patient is already suffering from glucose deficiency. Cancer eventually eats it all leaving a person to starve.

Make Sure Your Water is Clean

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) each year lead in drinking water contributes to 480,000 cases of learning disorders in children and 560,000 cases of hypertension in adult males. In 1994 and 1995, 45 million Americans drank water from water systems that fell short of SDWA standards.[2]

We should know that pure water is one of the most basic medicines we have and if one is going to do a water fast it better be done with high quality drinking water. Successful treatment of any disease today depends on adequate intake of good water. Water is our body‘s only means of flushing out toxins.

The more water we drink, and the purer and more alkaline that water is, the more we allow our body to purify itself. Money is well spent on filtering our water. Bottled water, in most instances, is a poor and insecure substitute for the care we must individually put into our own water supplies.


Before we even begin to get sophisticated with multilevel treatments, we have already the nuclear core of an exceptionally powerful anticancer protocol that would probably cost about 1000 dollars for two to three months’ worth of treatment. With people in the third world in mind this cost could be cut further with the most basic and powerful therapies staying in the virtually no cost area.


Doctors miss nearly half of ovarian cancer cases


This is unacceptable. Is this what they mean when they talk about top rate health care?

Now this is happening in Britain, but it has me wondering what’s going on in America. We already know that a test they were using for ovarian cancer in American wasn’t accurate. Looks like Britain isn’t doing much better. So why is it so hard for doctors to accurately diagnose ovarian cancer and actually tell patients they may have it?

My recomendation is for you to make sure that you pay attention to your body, and that you also become as knowledgeable as you can about health and fitness. The bottom line is that YOU are responsible for your level of health, not the doctor. You’re the one who is with your body 24 hours a day. The doctor might see you for 10 minutes at the appointment if you’re lucky.  If you adhere to the major principles of health, you will minimize your chances of contracting a disease.

It’s only been recently that doctors even admitted that your diet had a relationship to your heart health. And to this day, doctors get very minimal training on the impact of diet on health. But alternative doctors have been preaching about diet for many decades.

You can learn about health. Do your own research. Start doing things that will improve your health, and taking things that can help you reduce or eliminate cancer. They are out there.

Almost half of women with ovarian cancer were initially misdiagnosed, a charity has found.

And four in ten patients with the cancer said their symptoms were not taken seriously by dismissive GPs.

Research found that women were ‘dying needlessly’ because they were fobbed off by doctors who attributed symptoms to other issues such as digestion problems, the menopause or stress.

About 46 per cent of patients were initially referred for tests for something other than ovarian cancer, delaying their diagnosis and treatment.

Annwen Jones, from the charity Target Ovarian Cancer, which carried out the study, said: ‘Women with ovarian cancer are being failed at diagnosis, in access to trials and effective drugs, and they lack support. They deserve better than this.’

A fifth of sufferers aged 50 or above were first told they had irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) despite official guidelines stating older women with symptoms of IBS should be screened for ovarian cancer.

And 40 per cent of patients said their GP had not considered their symptoms to be serious, with nearly one in ten told they may have a mental health problem instead. A further 41 per cent of women had to visit their doctor at least three times before being referred for cancer tests, according to the research.

Even when women were referred for tests, three quarters were not told they might have ovarian cancer.

The cancer is often misdiagnosed or diagnosed late because of a lack of awareness about the symptoms among both the public and doctors. Signs include persistent stomach swelling, appetite loss and pelvic or abdominal pain.

Every year 7,300 women are diagnosed with the disease and 4,100 die. Only a third of women survive for ten years after diagnosis and 15 per cent die within two months.

Target Ovarian Cancer interviewed 396 ovarian cancer patients, as well as 504 GPs and 41 nurses for its annual Pathfinder survey.

It found nearly half of cancer nurses did not think their unit had enough staff to care properly for patients, while two thirds of the nurses surveyed did not have time to explain the symptoms of recurrent ovarian cancer.

Only one in four patients were involved in a clinical trial, despite more than half saying that they would like to be involved in one.

The report authors wrote: ‘Too many women continue to think cervical screening protects them against ovarian cancer and many have a false confidence in their ability to spot the symptoms of ovarian cancer.

‘Women continue to face repeat visits to their GP before being referred for diagnostic tests and many GPs still falsely believe symptoms only present themselves in the later stages of the disease and continue to be unaware of the importance of family history on both sides of the family.’

Professor Michael Peake, from the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service, who oversaw the research, said the results showed ‘where women’s lives could be saved if the quality of services were to be improved and, where necessary, investment made’.

Air pollution ’causes 467,000 premature deaths a year in Europe’


This is just more evidence of how we’re being bombarded by toxic chemicals. These chemicals cause a myriad of diseases and damage to our bodies. Breathing in this particulate matter can cause lung cancer and heart disease. It’s probably impossible for us to remove 100% of toxic chemicals from our environment today but we should probably be taking some steps to reduce the impact of these pollutants.

And we’re not even talking about the toxic chemicals in our personal care products, our foods and drinks, or other ways in which we get inundated with all these toxins. We’re talking literally thousands of different chemicals that we are drowning in. Pharmaceutical drugs count towards this chemical mix because they are known to be in wastewater.

Even though we can’t eliminate toxic chemicals, the most important thing we can do is to regularly detoxify our bodies. That should reduce the negative effects of these toxins on us. There are a number of ways to run a detox on yourself.

Air pollution is causing around 467,000 premature deaths in Europe every year, the European Environment Agency (EEA) has warned.

People in urban areas are especially at risk, with around 85% exposed to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) at levels deemed harmful by the World Health Organization (WHO).

These particles are too small to see or smell, but have a devastating impact.

PM2.5 can cause or aggravate heart disease, asthma and lung cancer.

How big is the problem?

It’s pretty bad. Within the European Union (EU), more than 430,000 people died prematurely due to PM2.5 in 2013, the most recent year with figures available.

According to the EEA’s Air quality in Europe – 2016 report, the toxic gas nitrogen dioxide (NO2) – released by vehicles and central heating boilers – has an impact equivalent to 71,000 premature deaths a year.

Ground-level ozone (O3) is also killing people – an estimated 17,000 annually in the EU.

Unlike the protective ozone layer in the stratosphere, ground-level ozone is harmful, formed when emissions like NO2 react with other pollutants and “cook” in heat or sunlight.

The European countries with the worst levels of PM2.5 are Bulgaria, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Nations like Poland where coal is a major source of electricity production tend to rank at the bottom of air quality measures, according to the EEA.

What are PM 2.5 particles?

  • Particulate matter, or PM2.5, is a type of pollution involving fine particles less than 2.5 microns (0.0025mm) in diameter
  • A second type, PM10, is of coarser particles with a diameter of up to 10 microns
  • Some occur naturally – eg from dust storms and forest fires, others from human industrial processes
  • They often consist of fragments that are small enough to reach the lungs or, in the smallest cases, to cross into the bloodstream as well
  • A build-up of PM2.5 in the lungs has been associated with causing respiratory illnesses and lung damage

    What’s the damage?

    PM particles may contain smoke, dust, soot, metals, nitrates, sulphates, water and rubber from tyres.

    They can get deep into your lungs, causing irritation and inflammation, and some may make it into your bloodstream.

    Heart disease and lung conditions are most commonly linked to inhaling air pollution, but your liver, spleen, central nervous system, brain, and even reproductive system can also be damaged.

    PM2.5 and PM10 can increase susceptibility to viral and bacterial pathogens, triggering pneumonia in vulnerable people.

    Children are most susceptible to illness from air pollution. A major study conducted over six years found that children living in highly polluted parts of cities have up to 10% less lung capacity than normal, and the damage can be permanent.

    Is Europe worse than elsewhere?

    Probably not. According to WHO data released two months ago, nine out of 10 people on the planet now breathe polluted air.

    Around three billion people still cook and heat their homes using solid fuels like wood or animal dung on open fires, and 4.3 million a year die prematurely from illness attributable to the resulting “household air pollution” – mostly from strokes, heart disease or lung deficiencies.

    Country-by-country data showed that Turkmenistan has the highest death rate connected to outdoor air pollution.

    Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan and Egypt rounded out the top five.

    “Rich countries are getting much better in improving the quality of the air,” Dr Carlos Dora from the WHO told the Associated Press.

    “Poorer countries are getting worse. That is the overall trend.”

    Europe is lagging behind North America, however, mostly because it depends more on diesel fuel and farming practices that create ammonia and methane.

    China, the country with the sixth-highest death rate linked to air pollution, is relatively wealthy, but is plagued by smog in its cities and polluted air from industrial sources.

    India has generated the most troubling smog headlines in recent months. Smoke from fireworks set off during Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, sent Delhi’s PM2.5 levels soaring to more than 90 times the level considered safe by the WHO.

    Toxic air is a leading cause of premature death in India, where 620,000 people perish every year from pollution-related diseases.


Some More Science for the Doubters


Here’s another from a slew of natural substances that have some anti-cancer, anti-tumor activity. And it’s nowhere near being as toxic and deadly as chemotherapy or radiation.  There are a lot of these, so we’re going to start sharing information about these substances that are actually backed by some scientific studies.

To be sure, just because we haven’t YET found the science that supports the effectiveness of some alternative treatments doesn’t mean that they don’t work. Remember, gravity worked before Newton wrote his treatise on it!

The question becomes one of whether or not you’re going to wait (and possibly die) before the news about some of these alternative cancer treatments is announced on CNN or are you going to do your own investigation and possibly reap the benefits from them.  In an perfect world, it wouldn’t have to be this way. But this is the world we live in, so you’re going to decide what you’re going to do to increase your chances of beating cancer. Personally, I would look into everything I possibly could to save myself from the ravages of cancer and the associated risks that come along with it.

Chinese olive fruit has promising potential in cancer treatment.

The methanol-ethyl acetate partitioned fraction from Chinese olive fruits inhibits cancer cell proliferation and tumor growth by promoting apoptosis through the suppression of the NF-κB signaling pathway.

Food Funct. 2016 Nov 21. Epub 2016 Aug 21. PMID: 27869910

Shu-Chen Hsieh, Wang-Ju Hsieh, An-Na Chiang, Nan-Wei Su, Yu-Te Yeh, Yi-Chun Liao

Chinese olives (Canarium album L.) have historically been used for medicinal purposes rather than commercially for oil. In this report, we reveal that the methanol-ethyl acetate partitioned fraction from Chinese olive fruits (MEO), of which ellagic acid accounted for 12%, exhibited profound anti-proliferative activities in the human colon cancer cell line, HCT116. Additionally, oral administration of MEO remarkably inhibited the tumor growth of subcutaneously implanted CT26 cells, a mouse colon carcinoma cell line, in BALB/c mice. Treatment with MEO induced a significant increase in the percentage of apoptotic cells and resulted in poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) cleavage, suggesting that MEO inhibits cancer cell proliferation by promoting apoptosis. Our study also showed that MEO exerted the most potent effect on the inhibition of NF-κB-mediated signaling among the partitioned fractions from Chinese olives. This process employed the use of reporter-based bio-platforms that are capable of detecting the activation of NF-κB. In addition, phosphorylation of NF-κB signaling-associated proteins, IKKα/β, IκBα, and p65, was reduced in MEO-incubated cancer cells, indicating that MEO suppresses NF-κB activation. Moreover, MEO treatment significantly suppressed lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced cancer cell proliferation, demonstrating that MEO promotes cancer cell apoptosis through the inhibition of the NF-κB signaling pathway. In summary, our findings demonstrate that the methanol-ethyl acetate partitioned fraction from Chinese olive fruits inhibits cancer cell proliferation and tumor growth by promoting apoptosis through the suppression of NF-κB signaling. Therefore, the Chinese olive fruit has promising potential incancer treatment.


Signs that Big Pharma is Faking the Search for the Cancer Cure


Despite the endless claims of Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment that they are feverishly searching for the cure for cancer, it hasn’t materialized. And even worse, we’re not significantly closer to any true cures than we were 100 years ago.  All of this despite numerous decades of research and work.  And in spite of billions of dollars donated to cancer charities.

It’s astounding to me that people still give money to any of these cancer charities. At what point do people finally say that enough is enough? After all these years of research, the absolute best treatments they’ve found are basically the exact same poison treatments, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.  And if you even consider immunotherapy better, understand that it’s just as prohibitively expensive as the other treatments, hovering around $100,000/year for treatment. And they love it because they foresee that people may be able to stay on immunotherapy drugs indefinitely.

If you analyze the situation, you will come to understand that Big Pharma is only interested in treatments that are extremely profitable.  So even if Big Pharma was to find a non-toxic cancer cure (or treatment for any other disease), they would actively work to hide it, discredit it, or suppress it. It would be the only things they could do to protect their profits. And them, along with the Medical Establishment and others that profit from the status quo work to protect their profits. They’re all in it together when it comes to profiting from the cancer merry-go-round.

Worse yet, anybody (insider or outsider) who threatens profits gets summarily dealt with. And the dirty bag of tricks comes into play. Lies, propaganda, fake research, rigged research trials, spiked research, skewing of results to give desired outcomes, and any other way they can insure that chemo, radiation and any other pipe dream profitable cancer ‘treatment’ is the only one that is approved for medical use.
Here are some of the Best Alternative Cancer Web Sites right here…

In fact, any treatment that is cheap and effective will meet with the intense scorn of the Medical Establishment, the cancer industry and Big Pharma. They want profits. Although they may be people, their entire livelihood rests on there NOT being a cure for cancer, especially one that is cheap, readily available, and/or not under Big Pharma control.  They will (and have a long history of) working persistently and ardently to destroy any alternatives to chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and any other expensive, marginally effective treatment that they control.

Some of the tangible signs that Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment are not sincere in their ‘search’ for cancer cures (and cures to other profitable diseases that they treat) are:

  1. They focus intense research on the minutiae of cancer etiology, disease process, and related topics instead of on the big picture.
  2. Even when they do research natural substances, they don’t recommend their use even though they are usually very non-toxic and have a very low downside to their use along with a huge upside if they do happen to work.
  3. Notice that health care professionals aren’t interested in finding out how cancer patients who successfully get better results than what would be expected (i.e., they don’t get side effect from chemo or radiation, or they get much better results in eradicating the cancer/tumors) or in what these patients are doing to get those great results.
  4. Health care professionals (esp. doctors and scientists) feel that they have a patent on truth, and that nobody else can possibly find a cure (or non-toxic, effective treatment) for cancer.
  5. Most people act like there is no politics, corruption, and other intrigue in science, and that the entire scientific and medical profession is beyond reproach, when nothing could be further from the truth.
  6. Scientists & health care professionals do not admit the truth that chemicals, GMOs, vaccinations, diet, etc., have a huge effect on disease incidence.
  7. Businesses (like Big Pharma) are not charitable organizations, and are only concerned about profits, and the hell with the effects on society and individual patients (as they prove by their actions, repeatedly).
  8. If it wasn’t about the money, they’d be researching down any avenue that might yield a cure, regardless of the profitability of the substance, but this isn’t the case.
  9. Nobody in the mainstream medical establishment will admit to or answer for the sordid history of the AMA, Big Pharma and the allopathic approach.
  10. A cheap cure would put the entire cancer industry out of business.
  11. If they admit that a non-establishment person did something that they couldn’t do, it would be a monumental embarrassment to the Medical Establishment, and would prove that they were wasting massive resources on BS research.
  12. They often dismiss treatments with no evidence except their own status and opinion.
  13. They only reference MDs and PhDs that agree with status quo opinions and ideas, and readily dismiss those who don’t. They get labeled as ‘quacks.’
  14. They try to use “standard practice” and the assumption of a consensus to ‘prove’ their case.
  15. Deny many truths that ‘alternative’ healthcare practitioners espouse until it becomes blatantly obvious that they were right all along (i.e., nutrition, smoking, mercury, etc.)
  16. The paradigm with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery is mechanical instead of systemic and holistic; body viewed as a battlefield instead of an integrated system.
  17. Researchers and health care professionals continue to pursue failed strategies that haven’t shown any promise in decades (i.e., chemotherapy, radiation).
  18. The media, the government, the government regulators, and the other companies are all in on it, and they’re all making huge money off of the Cancer Industry.
  19. They keep barking up the ‘genetic cause for cancer’ tree when it has been amply proven that cancer is NOT a genetically caused disease in over 90% of the cases. But they appear to be hoping to be able to use ‘personalized’ cancer treatments for each patient, which will require expensive testing and customized drug production.

I don’t think most people like these things, including many health care professionals. But it is a reality for most people. I think that we can win if we start being more honest about things and begin to work together. Scientists, doctors and other health care professionals and everybody has a stake in improving the health care system. It may hurt profits to Big Pharma in the short-term to admit the truth, but it will be better in the long run for everybody when we embrace the truth about cancer and most other things. Do your own research and see what you find.

Apigenin-A Promising Anti-Cancer Bioflavonoid


I notice that some complain that there aren’t any (or many) scientific cites and references in some of the articles on this site. So I’m making a more concerted effort to give those out as they do exist. I hope that this helps people as we often get overexcited about promising natural treatments for cancer and other diseases.

Sometimes it seems as if there isn’t any science behind the claims that many people make about alternative cancer treatments, so by doing this maybe we can give more credibility to the things that we say. Many people just assume that there isn’t any science on this stuff so it’s probably better for everyone to start to refer to more journal articles regarding these things.

Apigenin is another promising flavonoid compounds that’s naturally found in fruit, as it’s a citrus bioflavonoid. Most flavonoids have anti-oxidant, anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory activity. Grape seed extract is another flavonoid, along with pycnogenol which comes from pine bark of a tree known as Pinus pinaster.

I think that there are a lot of sources of information about apigenin out there. One article has 44 cites to studies that were performed on apigenin.

This is an abstract of a study that some scientists performed recently. I thought it was interesting and hope that it proves to be of value to you if you’re searching for natural compounds and non-pharmaceutical approaches that may enable you to help yourself back to optimum health.

Downregulation of NEDD9 by apigenin suppresses migration, invasion, and metastasis of colorectal cancer cells.

Toxicol Appl Pharmacol. 2016 Nov 15 ;311:106-112. Epub 2016 Aug 20. PMID: 27664007

Jin Dai, Peter G Van Wie, Leonard Yenwong Fai, Donghern Kim, Lei Wang, Pratheeshkumar Poyil, Jia Luo, Zhuo Zhang

Apigenin is a natural flavonoid which possesses multiple anti-cancer properties such as anti-proliferation, anti-inflammation, and anti-metastasis in many types of cancers including colorectal cancer. Neural precursor cell expressed developmentally downregulated 9 (NEDD9) is a multi-domain scaffolding protein of the Cas family which has been shown to correlate with cancer metastasis and progression. The present study investigates the role of NEDD9 in apigenin-inhibited cell migration, invasion, and metastasis of colorectal adenocarcinoma DLD1 and SW480 cells. The results show that knockdown of NEDD9 inhibited cell migration, invasion, and metastasis and that overexpression of NEDD9 promoted cell migration and invasion of DLD1 cells and SW4890 cells. Apigenin treatment attenuated NEDD9 expression at protein level, resulting in reduced phosphorylations of FAK, Src, and Akt, leading to inhibition on cell migration, invasion, and metastasis of both DLD1 and SW480 cells. The present study has demonstrated that apigenin inhibits cell migration, invasion, and metastasis through NEDD9/Src/Akt cascade in colorectal cancer cells. NEDD9 may function as a biomarker for evaluation of cancer aggressiveness and for selection of therapeutic drugs against cancer progression.


The Real Reason People Fall for ‘Miracle Cures’


First of all, there are no such things as ‘miracle cures.’ Whatever treatment or substance in question, it has a certain level of effectiveness.  And that effectiveness can range from 100% effective to 0% effective.  But then again, some treatments actually cause cancer. I’m not quite sure how to rate their effectiveness. -100% perhaps?

The gullibility of people to get duped into paying for quack cures for cancer (or any other disease) is only because they’re searching for something that has a better chance of working than what the Medical Industry is offering.

People aren’t as stupid as Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment would like to believe. The lethal toxicity of chemotherapy and radiation are legendary, even to people who still allow themselves to be treated with them. Just about everybody I know has a gruesome story of a friend or family member who died a horrible, painful death due to chemotherapy and radiation.

The bottom line is that if Big Pharma wasn’t in bed with the Medical Establishment (and government regulators) to limit people’s access to safer, more effective treatments, they would already have found them.  There’s no way that they wouldn’t have found them considering the many billions of dollars that have been spend on cancer research, along with the millions of man-hours of research work that has been conducted by scientists and researchers.

I, personally, have noticed that the entire direction of research has been commandeered by Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment so that no cheap, effective, readily available treatments for cancer will be found. And even more sinister, the people who have found them have all been summarily suppressed, maligned, ridiculed, regulated, banned, excoriated, and in some instances, murdered so that they can be silenced. The same fate has befallen every maverick MD, PhD, DO, ND, MS, RN, etc., or even laypeople who have found more effective disease treatments. But cancer is their best ‘golden goose,’ and is the most jealously guarded scheme.

If Big Pharma was doing such a great job at curing cancer and other diseases, there wouldn’t even  be an alternative cancer or alternative health movement. Only the terminally brainwashed, those who do not seek to question the status quo or who actually identify themselves with it continue to support it. More and more people are taking the steps to learn about other more sane approaches to cancer treatment and health care.

At the rate we are going, the health care industry is going to bankrupt America, and if left unheeded, the entire planet. Conventional cancer treatment regimens often cost upwards of $5-10,000 per month. All in an era of falling wages, jobs, and rising prices for most things. Conventional medicine is simply not sustainable. It’s more about profits than it is about what’s best for patients, or even what’s best for the country. It’s not right when medical bills are one of the leading causes of bankruptcy in America. And it’s even worse that most of those bankrupted by medical bills actually had health insurance! This is refined gouging, and it’s a sign that there’s too much profiteering going on.

In fact, most of the shady quack things that they’re accusing alternative cancer practitioners of doing could just as easily apply to what mainstream oncologists do. They are feeding on the desperation and vulnerability of the seriously ill. They use high-pressure sales tactics on these patients. They dissuade them from investigating any other treatment methods not under Big Pharma control. They refuse to work with patients who want to use other treatment methods and threaten not to work with them if they do.  They try to scare patients into accepting chemotherapy and radiation, telling them that they will die if they don’t quickly agree to them.  They use treatments that are readily identified as highly toxic and poisonous right in the drug inserts, so it’s not like anybody is making this up.

But they persist. I guess that it’s “profits at any cost.”  If they haven’t stopped it yet, after many decades of the same failed treatments, they’re not going to ever stop. They’ll only stop when enough people start saying “HELL NO!” to chemo and radiation and make it unprofitable.  They will continue to prey upon the uninformed, the fearful, the trusting, the gullible who trust these people selling them false hope with poisons masquerading as medicines.

Now I’m not supporting Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS), but some people have claimed it worked for them. But there are safer, more sane alternative options out there. Many of them can actually be used with chemotherapy and radiation. And some of them actually protect you from the devastating side effects of chemo and radiation. In almost all of the testimonials I’ve seen, the conventional health care practitioners are astonished when these patients actually get better and don’t suffer from the serious side effects of their ‘medicines.’ And they also never ask what the person is doing to cure their cancer. They just tell them to ‘keep doing whatever you’re doing’ because they don’t want to incur the wrath of the Medical Establishment.

And we already know that Quackwatch is ran by a Big Pharma shill, Dr Stephen Barrett who himself could qualify as a quack himself.

But no measurement of the placebo effect is ever mentioned for traditional cancer treatments. If it works for alternative cancer treatments, it stands to reason that it is also in play for conventional cancer treatments.

Also, no consideration of the effect of politics and conflicts of interest are mentioned when we evaluate conventional cancer treatments. The Medical Establishment is making huge sums of money based on the current methods of cancer treatment. I don’t see them stepping outside of their ‘cancer treatment box’ in any way. The same old paradigm creating the same old dismal results. Massaging the statistics doesn’t translate to reality, no matter how much or how long it goes on. And that’s why people still fear a cancer diagnosis along with the cancer treatments.

For more information, here are some of the best alternative cancer web sites you can find to get yourself educated!

Quackery feeds on the desperation and vulnerability of those who are seriously ill. Some experts have advice on how to avoid being duped.

There are plenty of other “miracle” healers trying to lure consumers into spending billions of dollars each year on fraudulent health products, according to Quackwatch, a nonprofit corporation that combats health fraud.

“The reality is that all people who are seeking help for an illness do so with a set of expectations and hopes about getting better,” Dr. David Gitlin, chief of medical psychiatry at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, told Healthline. “The need to get better, fear of failing treatment, and fear of death can drive people’s expectations so much that they are willing to believe almost anything in the hopes of getting those expectations met.”

A form of faith healing

In addition to desperation, Gitlin points to the human need to believe.

“This has been going on for thousands and thousands of years. It is faith healing,” he said. “I don’t say that in a negative way. There are many well-respected religions in which faith healing is an important component. Religion and spirituality may help more people in the world than medicine does partly because the human condition has a need to believe. When people lose a reason to believe we know people fail and die.”

Lipman says faith-based belief adds to people’s vulnerability.

Still, positive thinking may make people feel better, adds Gitlin.

“Good doctors know that part of treatment is helping you to build resiliency, positivity, and hope because that’s part of what contributes to the improvement of all medicines,” Gitlin says, all while presenting realistic expectations.

“When you tell someone their likelihood of surviving this cancer for more than 6 months is 10 percent, a lot of people will believe they’re in that 10 percent, but there is a natural bell curve to all diseases. Some people will die quickly, some will live the average amount of time, and others will live longer,” he said.

“When we hear statistics we have this unconscious drive that prevents us from giving in and may drive us to believe anything. In many ways this is a good human quality,” Gitlin added. “The problem is there are a lot of bad people in the world who take advantage of that human desire and need and that’s what charlatanism is at its basic core. It’s not that they trick people so much as prey on those vulnerable individuals who are so desperate to change their circumstance against all evidence.”

Placebo effect plays a part

Positive thinking carries over into the placebo effect, a phenomenon that occurs when a fake treatment (placebo) such as water or sugar is given to a person, and actually improves the person’s condition.

“We know that the need to believe, the desire and the expectation and hope for improvement can at least give the perception of improvement,” said Gitlin. “I think this may be the reason why people who seek out these cures then go on to say the miracle helped them. They can distort their own thinking so they may say ‘I feel better. I know my cancer has shrunk’ even though the data would show that it didn’t. Sooner or later, they come to realize it didn’t work or they may believe it stopped working. But what’s fascinating is that they perceptually did feel better.”

Are all natural approaches shams?

Barbara M. Rocha, N.D., a certified traditional naturopath, says while MMS and other “miracle cures” may be dangerous and unhealthy, not all natural remedies are.

“First of all, in natural medicine/healing, whatever term you want to use, we never say we can heal or cure you,” Rocha told Healthline. “Naturopathic medicine is not a ‘miracle cure,’ nor is any type of holistic treatment. It is about getting the body back into proper alignment in all aspects so that the body can move back to the proper state. And there is never just one answer or modality to accomplish it.”

“I tell my patients this takes work and time to turn things around and isn’t ‘bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.’ It takes commitment to themselves. I have been in this field a long time and have a great belief system, but never have I seen a ‘miracle’ in the sense that [the MMS church] uses,” she said.

Still, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that consumers should be mindful of products that claim to prevent, treat, or cure diseases or other health conditions but are not proven safe and effective for those uses.

“Relying on unproven products or treatments can be dangerous, and may cause harmful delays in getting the proper diagnosis and appropriate treatments,” says Lyndsay Meyer, FDA spokesperson.
