You need to get a mammogram every year like you need a hole in the head! According to the LA Times:
“For every 10-percentage-point increase in screening rates, the incidence of breast cancer rose by 16 percent…”
Sounds to me like mammograms are actually contributing to breast cancer! The British Medical Journal reported on the largest mammography study done in recent years, which concluded that mammography had no advantage over annual breast exams!2/
Plus, here’s something else you should know about mammography, something called “over-diagnosis”. Apparently–and this was a revelation to me– 25% of diagnosed tumors, even though meeting the criteria for “cancer”, never grow and never materialize into anything! And if you hadn’t gotten a mammogram, you never would have known about them; but because you’ve been duly “diagnosed”, you are now aggressively treated with surgery, chemo and radiation and endure needless suffering and disfiguring.
False-positives are another problem. They occur 20 to 56% of the time according to the Archives of Internal Medicine. The Cochrane Database Review says that mammography leads to a 30% rate of over-diagnosis and over-treatment.3/
The Lancet Oncology in 2011 reported on a study that showed that the more mammograms women got, the more breast cancer they developed in later years compared to the controls.4/
Is it really hard to believe that radiation causes cancer? (But these are big expensive machines, and somebody’s gotta pay for them!)
Alan, my editor, and I were talking on the phone tonight, and he was telling me about MSM and how important it is to cancer treatment. Then he sent me this information in email. I thought, Why waste it on just me? Everyone should know about this! So, I give you now, our editor-in-chief, Alan Schmukler!
Here is some info on MSM and vitamin C.
MSM is used for a wide array of health issues.
According to the website www.Cancertutor.com, MSM enables your cells and tissues to release toxins that have built up over time. If you take too much MSM, your body will release the toxins too fast for your kidneys and liver to handle. This can cause cleansing reactions, so start on MSM gradually and drink lots of water.
DO go on!
Most of this information comes from the alternative cancer website: www.CancerTutor.com. This is one of the best websites for this information, so support it! MSM is mainly used as an oxygen transport, to remove lactic acid from the bloodstream and as a pain killer.
Wow! I did not know that!
As far as cancer is concerned, MSM is used for oxygen transport, to kill microbes, to help remove lactic acid from the bloodstream and thus to prevent cachexia (extreme weight loss). It also helps get anti- cancer substances into the cell. It has anti- inflammatory properties and helps reduce pain.
The “lactic acid cycle” in cancer refers to glucose entering cancer cells where it’s converted to lactic acid and is released into the bloodstream, where it goes to the liver to be changed to glucose…which then re-enters the cancer cells.
A vicious circle, in other words. Any hints on dosage?
First, it’s important to get the right kind of MSM and the recommended vendor is:
MSM is sometimes referred to as organic sulphur. Only the correct kind will work. There’s a recommended dosage on the container, but people usually build up SLOWLY to a higher dosage. Here’s something I found this morning: How much MSM should I take? Best to start with 500 mg daily. This for about one week and then rise to 1000 mg daily and take this for a week. Go on like this for several weeks adding 500 mg at one time, until you are taking 10,000 mg daily. This will make up for the years of deficiency that your body has experienced. Then reduce the amount to a maintenance level for whatever works for you. This is a balance between addressing what you want to address and being able to sleep as well as you would like at night. For most people the maintenance level is between 1 and 2 teaspoons (4000 to 8000 mg) per day. Always drink LOTS of water when starting on MSM or when increasing the amount you are taking.
Here’s something about vitamin C: At normal doses it acts as an anti- oxidant. At very high doses it acts as an OXIDANT and kills cancer cells.
Wow! Now, luckily, since you mention high doses, there’s a new product on the market called Sufficient-C! To read about it, see my interview with the owner of Sufficient-C, Caralyn Vessal. The article is called: “High Dose Vitamin C–It’s Finally Here!”
You can order Sufficient-C here: www.SufficientC.com.
It’s non-GMO, contains no sugar and no artificial ingredients. I was shocked to read that the most popular Vitamin C brand, “Emergen-C”, actually contains sugar and fructose, they’re the first ingredients listed on the box! I have Sufficient-C right here in my house and it’s delicious and very easy to drink; 4,000 mg. of vitamin C per glass, just what a cancer patient needs! A cancer patient does NOT need sugar!
Thank you, Alan, for that special report on MSM and Vitamin C! And now, back to “Tidbits”!
Chemotherapy: a Total Flop!
The failure rate for chemotherapy is 97%, so says Carlos M. Garcia, MD. He is citing a 2004 study published in Clinical Oncology which you can read by clicking here; also, see the video below by Dr. Peter Glidden:
Radiation: Not Such A Great Idea Either
Researchers used to believe that radiation could kill cancer cells. Now they’re discovering that all it does is cause cancer to spread! After initial regression of the tumor, the cancer rebounds with a vengeance! A study done at UCLA found that radiation, instead of killing cancer, actually promoted it! Radiation also turns normal cells into cancer stem cells which then produce their own tumors. And then there are the side effects: look for nerve damage with pain and numbness; if the treatment was near the head or neck, look for throat and mouth sores, look for the glands to be damaged; look for damage to any near-by organ.

Fruits and Vegetables, Completely Worthless! (according to law-makers)
According to U.S. federal law, no natural substance is allowed to be advertized as a cure for anything!
Chemotherapy Unacceptable (so say oncologists!)
From Cancer-Free (p. 74): “In Canada…the prestigious McGill Cancer Center in Montreal, Quebec, did a study of oncologists to determine how they would respond to a diagnosis of cancer. On the confidential questionnaire, 58 out of 64 oncologists (91%) said that ALL chemotherapy programs were unacceptable to them and their family members. The overriding reasons they gave for this decision were that the drugs are ineffective and have an unacceptable degree of toxicity. These are the same doctors who will tell you that chemotherapy treatments will shrink your tumor and prolong your life! A similar and more recent study conducted by the Los Angeles Times found that 75% of the oncologists stated that chemotherapy and radiation were ‘unacceptable as treatments for themselves or their families.'”
Many people think that chemotherapy targets cancer cells. That is not true! Chemo targets fast-multiplying cells. But cancer cells aren’t the only cells that are fast-multiplying! Many normal cells are fast-multiplying. Obviously the cells on the scalp that grow hair are one such example! But so are the cells lining the intestines! What happens when these cells get killed off? Malabsorption! The chemo patient cannot absorb the nutrients from food! It’s just sheer insanity, the biggest embarrassment “modern” medicine has to offer!
The War On Cancer
In 1971, the United States declared a “war on cancer”, pouring 100’s of billions of dollars into research. Over 40 years later, virtually NO PROGRESS has been made in curing the most common forms of cancer! More Americans are dying of cancer today than ever before. So what accounts for this? Why does this situation continue to remain unchanged over decades? Because guess what? Oncologists are allowed to profit from the sale of chemo drugs! I am not kidding! Look at this:
“Unlike other doctors, oncologists make most of their income by buying drugs wholesale and selling them to patients at marked up prices. Ethicists see a real problem with this structure. NBC’s Rehema Ellis reports.” To watch the video, click here. This is NBC Nightly News:
This ensures that nothing in the field of cancer treatment ever changes!
You have to drop out, as Timothy Leary said over 40 years ago, of mainstream commercial culture, which is all about profiteering, and find your answers to life’s problems out in the margins where scholars, free-thinkers and courageous truth-tellers dwell. Like here, for example!
Please watch this important video as Dr. Peter Glidden blows the whistle on profiteering in the cancer industry, and then pass it on to everyone you know:
