The Cancer Myth
By Matthew Christodoulou
Is it really that dangerous? Is it an incurable disease? Definitely not! So why are so many people dying from this illness worldwide? Because of the amount of information and misinformation regarding this topic, I have decided to divide this article into two parts. This is part 1 and it will focus on cancer statistics, what is cancer and the affects of health care industry standard treatments. Part 2, which will be released tomorrow, will focus on natural alternative treatments, facts about how to prevent and cure cancer easily and cases in which, cancer has been cured.
“Cancer is the leading cause of premature death in Canada. Every 7 minutes, 2 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer and 1 dies from it every 7.5 minutes.”
“An estimated 177,800 new cases of cancer (excluding about 74,100 non-melanoma skin cancers) and 75,000 deaths will occur in Canada in 2011.”
“In 2007, cancer surpassed cardiovascular disease (heart and cerebrovascular) as the leading cause of death in Canada.”
“An estimated 1 out of every 4 Canadians is expected to die from cancer.”
“An estimated 1 out of every 4 Canadians is expected to die from cancer.”
Cancer has become one of the most common occurring long-term illnesses in the world. Everywhere we turn we are being told that something can cause cancer. Food, electronics, the sun, pollution, stress…The list goes on. I’ve found it to be a comical conversation among people where they laugh at how almost everything nowadays causes cancer! It can make you think…maybe the stuff we use and consume on a daily basis isn’t harmonious with us? With that said, let’s take a look at what cancer is and how we can go about preventing and treating it.
For starters, on a scientific level, what is cancer?
Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are over 100 different types of cancer and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.
Cancer harms the body when damaged cells divide uncontrollably to form lumps or masses of tissue called tumors (except in the case of leukemia where cancer prohibits normal blood function by abnormal cell division in the blood stream). Tumors can grow and interfere with the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems, and they can release hormones that alter body function. Tumors that stay in one spot and demonstrate limited growth are generally considered to be benign.
More dangerous, or malignant, tumors form when two things occur:
1. A cancerous cell manages to move throughout the body using the blood or lymph systems, destroying healthy tissue in a process called invasion
2. The cell manages to divide and grow, making new blood vessels to feed itself in a process called angiogenesis.
When a tumor successfully spreads to other parts of the body and grows, invading and destroying other healthy tissues, it is said to have metastasized. This process itself is called metastasis. At this point when metastasis has occurred, the illness usually becomes diagnosed as quite serious. The majority of oncologists (so-called cancer doctors/experts) diagnose people with specific levels of cancer, which is based on severity. If it considered to be a major health risk, they then give time frames of how long the infected person will possibly live and told that medical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and taking medications to reduce the effects of hormonal changes and pain are the only answer to controlling and coping with the cancer and yet can never guarantee that it will actually be cured. This is the industry standard that the health care system and mainstream media pushes. Because we have put so much trust into these aspects of society, many have come to accept this as absolute truth and it being the only way we can look at and treat cancer.
So let’s take a look at what these treatments are all about.
Chemotherapy (sometimes called chemo) uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. Some chemotherapy drugs are given on their own. But more often, several chemotherapy drugs are given together. And chemotherapy may also be given together with other drug treatments, such as biological therapy.
Now, when most people are introduced to chemotherapy as a possible treatment for their cancer, because of the fact that having cancer begins to cause a lot of fear and stress in the infected person, they look at a treatment like chemotherapy and agree to going about getting the treatment due only to the fact that it is known to kill cancer cells and that they want to get rid of the cancer as soon as possible. The fear of dying or becoming extremely ill becomes so powerful that it can cloud people’s minds and they become desperate. So much as to not even really question what the cause of the cancer is or if there is any alternative natural means of reversing its effects.
But what else does chemotherapy do…?
“If cancer specialists were to admit publicly that chemotherapy is of limited usefulness and is often dangerous, the public might demand a radical change in direction—possibly toward unorthodox and nontoxic methods, and toward cancer prevention. …The use of chemotherapy is even advocated by those members of the establishment who realize how ineffective and dangerous it can be.” – Ralph W. Moss, author, The Cancer Industry
Chemotherapy cannot target only cancer cells, its toxic chemicals also destroy healthy cells. Chemotherapy targets rapidly dividing cells, which is why is it used to treat cancer, but many other types of cells in the body also divide rapidly. The cells that make up the lining of the intestines are rapidly dividing, making them susceptible to damage by chemotherapy agents. This results in the frequently reported side effects of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and constipation. Cells inside hair follicles are also rapidly dividing, and when chemotherapy kills these cells, hair loss results.
Bone marrow, the thick fluid contained in bones, is continually producing new blood cells, which are needed for carrying oxygen throughout the body, disease immunity and blood clotting. Chemotherapy treatment can also cause bone marrow suppression, which means that the ability to produce these new cells is inhibited, resulting in reduced immunity, anemia, lack of energy and uncontrollable bleeding.
In addition to temporary side effects, chemotherapy can result in permanent damage to the body. The organs and cells involved with reproduction are especially susceptible to damage by chemotherapy. The ovaries are responsible for releasing eggs as well as producing and secreting hormones that are essential to a woman’s fertility and sex drive. Chemotherapy, especially in women over the age of 30, according to the American Cancer Society, can cause a patient to enter into early menopause, resulting in infertility. For men, chemotherapy can permanently affect their sperm and the organs responsible for producing new sperm, resulting in permanent infertility.
Some chemotherapy medications, such as those that belong to the antracycline class of drugs, can cause permanent damage to the muscle cells in the heart. This can affect the heart’s ability to effectively pump blood through the body, resulting in dizziness and erratic heartbeat and even leading to congestive heart failure.
Chemotherapy can also result in permanent nerve damage and damage to the lungs, as well as affecting the senses, including hearing, vision, smell and taste.
In addition to helping treat some forms of cancer, chemotherapy is also carcinogenic, meaning it has the ability to cause cancer itself. As chemotherapy destroys cells, including healthy cells, it disrupts their ability to divide. Cancer cells are cells that have lost their ability to regulate their growth. Secondary cancer may surface months…or even years…after treatment.
The overall success rate for most cancers treated with the chemotherapy is around 2.3%.
“Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade, yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors,” Allen Levin, MD UCSF The Healing of Cancer.
“Despite widespread use of chemotherapies, breast cancer mortality has not changed in the last 70 years,” Thomas Dao, MD NEJM Mar 1975 292 p 707.
Radiation therapy is the use of a certain type of energy (radiation) from x-rays, gamma rays, electrons and other sources to destroy cancer cells. Other names for this common method of treating cancer are radiotherapy, x-ray therapy or irradiation.
Radiation in high doses destroys cells in the area being treated by damaging the DNA in their genes, making it impossible for them to grow and divide. During radiation therapy, both cancer cells and healthy cells are affected.
This type of treatment has very similar side effects as chemotherapy as it also destroys and impairs the rest of the body even though it can be known to kill cancer cells. From an early age we are taught that exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation can be extremely harmful and even fatal, so why would we use something like this to increase our health?
“Chemo agents — powerful cancer-fighting toxins descended from deadly mustard gas first used against soldiers in World War I — have been classified as hazardous by OSHA since the mid-1980s. Hazardous drugs are those known or suspected to cause cancer, miscarriages, birth defects or other serious health consequences.” – Mlive.com
To take this even further, there are a number of healthcare workers in North America who have contracted cancer themselves and have said that chemotherapy drugs are highly toxic and known carcinogens, and due to their exposure to these drugs through the medical practice, they may be linked to causing their cancer.
What They Don’t Want You To Know
After researching and reading about the effects of these treatments, does it really make sense for us to use these methods? They may destroy cancer cells but they destroy the rest of the body in the process. Not to mention, these methods can also be extremely expensive, especially in the US where there is no free healthcare, unlike here in Canada.
Canada has free health care and we think it’s great to provide these methods to the public, but looking at how damaging they are to the body is our health care system really so great? I do agree that it can be helpful in many situations but there is a lot of it that does not make sense. We should be questioning why these are the industry standard methods when there are known natural alternative treatments and CURES for cancer.
Why isn’t this public domain? The answer: Profit and Control. A healthy population isn’t easy to control nor is it profitable for big businesses and the agenda of the few who control our world through unconscious enslavement.
Approximately 5 billion dollars is spent annually by the United States’ “National Cancer Institute” (NCI) on cancer research, (so they say). What is this money going to and how is it being used if we haven’t found a cure yet…Or have we? Yes! There are natural cures and treatments for all types of cancer! This is where Part 2 of The Cancer Myth comes in!
Part 2: “What They Don’t Want You To Know
With this article I am going to focus on the cause of cancer and natural preventative measures, as well as cures for cancer…Something that is not commonly explained by the medical industry.
It’s a known fact in the industry that there isn’t even an actual test that verifies cancer within the body. A patient has to undergo a series of various tests and the doctor comes to a conclusion from putting together the results of this testing process. I have met many people who have been tested and been told that they “might” have cancer. The science behind cancer is very weak and vague. Now I’m not saying cancer doesn’t exist, because it certainly does, it’s just that maybe our screening processes as well as our medical education processes aren’t as intelligent as we may think.
In Part 1 of this topic, I explained what cancer is from a scientific level that is communicated by many cancer research institutes. I have researched many websites and documents looking for an explanation of what cancer is, and you know what? All they seem to tell you is that it’s a malfunction in the communication and division of cells, which results in cells clumping together and forming lumps and tumors, which can become malignant.
So we know what it is, but how often are we told what CAUSES cancer?
Well, this is the cause and how it works:
The cause of cancer was discovered by Dr. Otto Warburg in the 1930′s. He won a Nobel Prize for it. He discovered that cancer cells produce energy through anaerobic fermentation (a process that ferments glucose to make energy). Cancer cells can only develop in a low oxygenated and acidic environment. Metabolic acidosis is a term used to describe unhealthy levels of acidity in the body. Acidity is measured by high numbers of positively charged hydrogen ions H+ which pair up with oxygen molecules to make water, thus reducing oxygen levels in the body.
Healthy cells use oxygen to create energy through respiration; in the absence of oxygen, normal cells die. However, some cells adapt to these low oxygenated environments and mutate to produce energy through fermentation (a process that does not use oxygen). This fermentation creates a by-product of lactic acid, which further increases acidity in the body, creating a breeding ground for cancer cells to thrive.
Cancer cannot live in alkaline and highly oxygenated environments. Unfortunately, most of the foods people eat are low in oxygen and highly acidic. Meat is highly acid forming, it also contains phosphorous and sulphur and when metabolized by the body turns into phosphoric and sulphuric acid. Carbonated soda is also extremely acidic. So are fried foods, refined sugar, refined flours, processed foods, alcohol, coffee, dairy, non-organic fruits and vegetables grown with pesticides and herbicides, the polluted air we breathe, make-up, certain oils, sunscreens and lotions, soaps and conditioners, perfumes and colognes, tap water, etc. are also all acidic when internalized within the body and play a role in producing various forms of cancer. Quite the list isn’t it? It goes to show you that we may want to rethink about what we use and how we go about using these things on a daily basis.
So now that we understand that cancer is caused by low oxygen and high acidity levels within the body, let’s take a look at how we can prevent ourselves from bringing our bodies to this state as well as known natural cures for cancer.
It’s important to understand that our bodies naturally have what is called a pH Balance. pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14—the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7, which is neutral.
The body has an acid-alkaline (or acid-base) ratio called the pH which is a balance between positively charged ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming.) The body continually strives to balance pH. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur.
Most people who suffer from unbalanced pH are acidic. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals—including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium—from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity—a condition that may go undetected for years.
pH imbalance is a MAJOR key factor in contracting any form of illness, not just cancer. An ideal balance to have would be just above neutral, hovering between 7.2-7.4. In this balance, illnesses and viruses have little chance of survival as the body’s immune system will be top notch.
“The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause…too much tissue acid waste in the body!” – Theodore A. Baroody, N.D., D.C., Ph.D.
Restoring and balancing the body’s immune system can be done quite easily through consumption and proper maintenance of required vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. This will allow the body to function efficiently and effectively as it was intended to do.
I am providing you with a detailed list of acid/alkaline forming foods. You can use this list to monitor your intake and balance the amount of acid forming foods versus alkaline forming foods that you consume on a daily basis. You can also visit your local naturopath or homeopathic doctor and they will surely help you with this.
You can buy or get from your doctor little test strips where you can test your own urine sample and monitor your body’s pH balance. It’s very easy and simple, you just have to have the ambition to want to do it, I think it is highly worth it and recommend it to anyone who truly wants to take preventative measures.
Plant based foods are highly alkaline forming and contain high levels of oxygen. Carbohydrates have the highest concentration of oxygen molecules than any other food, which is why fruit is very good for you. Plant based proteins also digest without producing highly acidic residues. Green leafy vegetables contain chlorophyl which is a powerful alkaline agent. A vegan diet is something I also highly recommend for optimal health. You can check out our other Myth articles titled The Protein Myth: “Eat Your Meat” and The Dairy Myth: “Milk Does a Body Good” if you wish to find out more about the effects of eating meat and dairy on the body and how harmful they really can be.
A raw vegan diet is also highly effective and beneficial for the body. Raw diets are one of the fastest growing diets on the planet right now and more and more people are starting to become aware of how powerful it is to eat live foods versus cooked foods.
SImply Raw: Reversing Diabete in 30 Days is a great documentary to watch for anyone interested in seeing how just by changing your diet, so-called know incurable diseases have been cured, in little as 30days. This movie focuses on diabetes but also shows how it can cure other illnesses such as cancer.
Another great documentary that I would like to recommend is “Forks Over Knives”. You can find out details at the website www.forksoverknives.com. It is a highly informative and entertaining documentary that discusses with scientific facts, the benefits of a vegan/raw food diet and also provides personal success stories of people who have cured diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis and osteoporosis just by switching their diet!
The next example for a CURE is the infamous Baking Soda/Syrup/Water solution that can give your body the alkaline and oxygen blast needed to cure any stage of cancer, even when deemed to be terminal! The key to this is understanding that cancer survives off of sugar and low oxygen levels like I explained before. So what this does is it mixes syrup, which has a natural high sugar content, with baking soda, which has a high oxygen level. So When ingested, the cancer automatically goes after the sugar and in turn is hit with the baking soda as well which literally destroys it on contact! It’s very simple.
This is a video explanation, by a man known as “Vito”, of the recipe and ratio of the baking soda/syrup/water mixture and how he cured stage four prostate cancer!:
You can also check out his website www.phkillscancer.com to find out more details and more about his story.
Last but not least, I would like to introduce to you (if you haven’t already heard of him), an extremely brave soul known as Dr. Leonard Coldwell, who is considered to be the world leading expert on cancer. After being in the medical profession for a number of years, he went on to dedicate his life to expose the fraudulent and manipulative agenda of the global health care industry and publicly speaks about how cancer is caused, multiple cures for cancer as well as preventative measures for all types of illness.
Check out his website www.drleonardcoldwell.com
This here is a radio interview with Dr. Coldwell titled “Answers to Cancer – Dr. Leonard Coldwell”, which was recorded on Monday September 19, 2011. It was hosted by George Noory, the host of Coast to Coast AM. It is highly informative and a must-listen for people who are interested in finding out more about cancer and known cures. Here it is!
“Answers to Cancer – Dr. Leonard Coldwell”
So here we have it - a simple explanation of how cancer is caused. Natural, alternative preventative measure. And, KNOWN CURES FOR CANCER! This stuff is undeniable and there is so much information and proof through success stories and case studies. It’s clear that our health care industry, governments and big pharmaceutical companies do not have our best interest at hand. It is up to us to inform ourselves and spread this information and truth as much as possible. The more people who awaken to this and embrace it, the more powerful and effective we can be in bringing about global change to provide a more harmonious and peaceful way of life. Please, share this with whomever and wherever. The world needs your help!
I just want to touch on one last thing. There is a conscious side to illness that many still do not understand. Another article is going to be written about this subject to bring this truth to light. So, stay tuned for more!
Hurray to vibrant Health!
