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. For more details, click below:
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:
Biopsies for Diagnosing Tumors? What Might Judge Judy Say?
Not very smart!
A biopsy means literally poking a hole in your tumor. Does that sound like a good idea to you? Breaking the protective wall around the tumor frequently results in the spread of cancer cells. Removing the tumor surgically can bring about the same thing. You know what else isn’t such a great idea? Smashing the tumor with the mammography machine! There are less invasive ways to diagnose cancer. Avoid all “procedures” and begin the process of detoxifying and boosting your immune system so that your own body can dispose of cancer cells as it used to before you overwhelmed it with junk food, soda, alcohol, tobacco, fake juice, and toxic drugs and personal hygiene products! Oh, and tattoos! Whose insane idea was that? The ink is so toxic, containing even cadmium, one of the worst carcinogens on the planet, I can’t believe anybody seriously thought this fad was harmless! Anything that goes on your skin gets into your blood stream, which reminds me, cosmetics! Buy them from the health food store! Deodorant, skin cream, lipstick…to quote Dr. Mercola:
New research examining parabens found in cancerous human breast tissue points the finger at antiperspirants and other cosmetics for increasing your risk of breast canceri.
Cancer is rarely an emergency. It took years, perhaps decades, for it to get to the point where it is now, you’ve got plenty of time to read up on how to get rid of it using natural, non-toxic means. Begin by not making things worse! Clean up your lifestyle, stop smoking, drinking, taking drugs, eating junk food; replace white flour products with whole grains, introduce raw fruits and vegetables into your diet; buy a juicer and start juicing, start taking vitamin C and start buying your personal hygiene products from the health food store or Whole Foods market–including deodorant, mouthwash, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc. These are all common sense first steps!
Flaxseed oil and Cottage Cheese
AKA, “the Budwig diet”, founded by Dr. Johanna Budwig. A little flaxseed oil mixed with cottage cheese. This combo kills cancer cells by the billions! The cottage cheese is a carrier for the oil. It oxygenates the cells. Cancer hates oxygen! Here are your instructions, from Bill Henderson’s book, Cancer-Free:
“Flaxseed oil and cottage cheese is very simple to prepare. You mix 6 ounces (about 2/3 cup or 170ml) of organic cottage cheese (no preservatives), 1% or 2% fat, with 6 tablespoons of flaxseed oil. The 6 tablespoons are about 3 ounces (1/3 cup or 85 ml). Both ingredients are readily available at most health food stores in most parts of the world. This is the cancer patient’s dose –every day. It can be divided in half to make two servings –morning and afternoon to make it easier to eat. However, since it does oxidize quickly, it should be eaten as soon as possible after it is mixed.” You can add blueberries or strawberries.
Go to www.youtube.com and type in Budwig Diet to see lots of demonstrations on what to do and how to do it.
The following comes from an excellent website you should definitely become familiar with, www.cancertutor.com:
Coconut water is the water inside of “young coconuts,” which have not had their shell harden yet.
This product is amazing at getting rid of the symptoms and damage done by chemotherapy. It is an electrolyte, it oxygenates the blood, it restores the ANC count, white blood count, hemoglobin, platelets, etc.
As if that weren’t enough, because it is an antimicrobial, it can also kill microbes inside of cancer cells and revert them into normal cells. In other words, it can be a cancer treatment!!
Generally you need to buy these “young coconuts” at health food stores, but some grocery stores may be able to obtain them.
Note: The coconut water that comes in a box will not work, you must use fresh “young coconuts” and extract the coconut water.
Stop Feeding The Cancer!!!!!
The cancer cell needs to eat too, just like everybody else! But that’s no reason for you to feed it! It is almost certain that if you had eaten properly and not smoked, you wouldn’t have cancer now! Do you want to know what cancer eats? This should come as no surprise to you–JUNK FOOD! It’s sugar-dependent! We all know what sugar is (hopefully) but do you know what else sugar is? Anything made with white flour! White flour turns to white sugar in your stomach! So does white rice! We’re looking at three “foods”, right off the bat, that have to go — sweets, white flour products and white rice!
Now let’s talk about meat. First of all, under the best of circumstances, meat is hard to digest. It contains no fiber, it’s acidic (and cancer loves an acid environment!) and it takes a lot of energy to digest meat, energy that could be used to kill cancer cells! Now, added to that, what if the meat you’re eating comes from restaurants, the supermarket and fast-food joints? Such meat is exclusively the product of factory farms! Do you know what they feed their cattle and chickens? JUNK FOOD, to fatten them up! How nutritious can that possibly be? The only safe way to eat meat is to make sure you’re buying organic! My guess is that most of you aren’t; so, eating meat is something that you’d seriously want to cut back on. What else? Packaged/processed foods full of chemicals? Don’t buy them! The microwave oven? Get rid of it! Milk and dairy products? If it comes from the supermarket, it’s from factory farms, the cows are sick, under-nourished; the milk is over-processed and full of hormones and antibiotics…don’t buy it! Raw milk from pastured cows and goats, on the other hand, is a different story. If you can get raw milk, great. You can also think in terms of coconut milk, almond milk, hemp milk and flax milk; be sure to read the labels though and make sure there’s no added sugar.
Generally speaking, you need to look at two types of food that are healing: Raw Juices and Raw Food! This is where the healing is, people! Invest in a juicer! It may just well be that the cancer patient is anorexic and refusing to eat. With raw juices, that is not a problem because raw juices need no digestion and the nutrients get right into the bloodstream! So, rather than force-feeding your cancer patient, make juice for him instead! However, I have to add in a word about coffee enemas, and this is very important! Why? First of all, they stop the pain! Secondly, they cause the liver to dump its toxic accumulations, and this is essential; otherwise, the dead cancer cells will overwhelm the liver and the patient will become toxic and sick! Here is a great video showing you how to do coffee enemas:
At the Gerson Clinic, they do 4 coffee enemas a day!
They also do 13 cups of raw juice a day, that’s approximately one cup of juice an hour.
According to Charlotte Gerson, after three days on this regimen, all the cancer pain is gone! Make juice and drink it often! It should be mostly vegetables and an apple to make it tasty so the patient is more inclined to drink it. For instance, carrot/kale juice with one apple. Your cancer cells will be in a panic once you start juicing! They’ll be saying, “McDonalds! You need to go to McDonalds! You know you want to go to McDonalds!” Just ignore them, they’ll be dead soon.
Don’t forget large, huge salads to cleanse your digestive system. Charlotte Gerson says the only oil or fat you can have is Flax oil, nothing else! Anything else encourages the growth of cancer cells, she says, and if you need to, a modest amount of organic animal protein can be added: eggs, chicken, fish; in general, steer clear of any “food” with a corporate label on it, and steer clear of soy, it’s a highly processed food! Trade in your table salt (sodium chloride) for this:
Himalayan Pink Salt. This is ancient sea salt. It contains all the minerals and it’s actually good for you!
Eat sprouted bread, like Ezekiel bread.
You’ll have to look for this bread in the freezer section of your market.
Garlic kills cancer cells, so do these really hot peppers, habanero peppers.
Here’s an idea, twice a day, make an anti-cancer sandwich: Ezekiel bread, flax oil, fresh garlic and habanero peppers. Ginger kills cancer cells too! You can substitute ginger for the peppers if you want. Do that for two weeks and Pow! Bye-bye cancer! As much as I would like to take credit for this sandwich, I actually learned about it here:
The directions for making the sandwich are as follows, though please read the whole article, which is called “How I Cured My Stage 4 Cancer in Two Weeks…” (see above link)
“(1) Grate one habanero pepper each day, putting it on bread. Yes, you use the seeds. (2) Grate two cloves of garlic each day, putting them on bread and covering with butter. (3) One tablespoon of Emulsified cod liver oil once or twice each day.* TwinLabs makes some wonderfully flavored cod liver oil.
The cod liver oil is not put on the sandwich. One serving of the oil may be taken before or after eating the sandwich with the same meal
I used the cod liver oil because I was not losing weight or dealing with fluid retention. If I had either of those conditions, I would have used evening primrose oil or borage oil instead of the emulsified cod liver oil, taking 6,000 mgs a day in divided doses.
(4) Smother the grated garlic and habaneros peppers with real butter [keep in mind the Gerson Clinic uses only flax oil] and eat it. Organic or raw butter is best. No margarines of any type, including Smart Balance, etc.
If hot peppers didn’t agree with me, then ginger is what I would use – and yes I trust the ginger just as much as the habanero to do the job.”
Mushrooms deprive tumors of their blood supply, so, add mushrooms to your menu every day!
Make a stew out of real vegetables, like this one I made:
Make a big pot so you can eat it all day long, don’t over-cook the vegetables! You can serve it over brown rice if you want but use the rice sparingly.
Dr. Jim’s Cancer Cure
Basically, it’s like this: Cancer requires an acidic envirnonment. The way to deprive the cancer of this environment is with baking soda! Here’s how you do it: You heat up 3 parts maple syrup in a non-toxic sauce pan like stainless steel, and one part baking soda, mix it up and take a tsp. The cancer cells gobble up the maple syrup and are clobbered by the baking soda which kills them! I know, it’s mean!
Mix 3 parts organic maple syrup with 1 part Aluminum-free baking soda (like Red Mill Brand) stir with low heat (not over 120 degrees) for 5-10 minutes and take 3 tsp per day for 1 to 2 months. If it tastes terrible, you burned it, which is easy to do, so be careful. Change diet to no meat and especially no sugar!! and no white flour.
So listen everybody, I have to start dinner now, but… what have we learned today?
We’ve learned about MSM, Vitamin C, the Budwig Protocol, Dr. Jim’s protocol, how to eat right for cancer including a very special anti-cancer sandwich, juicing, coffee enemas, and how to not use toxic products for personal hygiene. Is this all there is to say? Probably not, but it’s a great start for an article modestly called “tidbits”.
Don’t forget my two companion articles that help round out this subject:
Why Do We Have To Talk About Diet?
Why Do We Have To Talk About Diet—Again!
Here’s a great video by a former oncology nurse and her journey out of oncology and into natural healing. She’s being interviewed here by Chris Wark from www.ChrisBeatCancer.com which in my opinion is the best anti-cancer site on the web and I encourage everyone to visit it, read the articles and watch the videos showing what he ate and juiced that cured his late-stage colon cancer at age 26; very inspirational.
