Chemotherapy is derived from chemical warfare agents (specifically, the one called mustine). This is why most chemotherapeutic drugs are cytotoxic (kill cells). They work by disrupting cellular division and DNA metabolism. This is highly toxic, but is especially dangerous to fast-growing cells of the body, and not just cancer cells. Cancer researchers can secure great profits, status, acclaim, grants and awards, jobs, papers and publications without succeeding in treating or curing cancer.
A big problem with the cancer industry is that researchers run experiments on cancer based on animal models. Animals are biochemically different from people. So animal experiment results are virtually worthless for human cancers. What is true for animals may not hold for humans. This makes all of the billions of dollars spent on research virtually worthless because most cancer experiments are ran on animal models. The whole approach is to find a “magic bullet” cure for cancer with drugs that are patentable (i.e., profitable) for pharmaceutical companies. They do not study the type of cancers (i.e., the metastatic tumors) that actually cause the bulk of cancer deaths.
Another suppressed fact about conventional cancer treatments are their highly damaging side effects. Chemotherapy is extremely deadly. It is cytotoxic, meaning that it is designed to kill cells, especially fast growing cells like cancer tumors. But unfortunately, they also kill normal body cells as well. Normal cells in the body that are also damaged by chemotherapy (because they grow rapidly) are bone marrow cells, the cells in the digestive tract, and hair follicles. Other side effects of chemo are extreme nausea and vomiting, hair loss, and weight loss (cachexia).
Conventional cancer treatments commonly include surgery and radiation, and both of these are known to be dangerous and cause even more side effects. Conventional treatments are often called “slash and burn” because it consists of cutting out the affected organs, poisoning the body with chemo and then burning it with radiation. Another very serious side effect of chemotherapy is called chemobrain, and it is caused because chemo is very toxic to the brain.
Chemo causes brain damage that often leads to memory loss, vision problems, impaired orientation, deterioration of cognitive function, and brain shrinkage. Chemo is also responsible for causing massive DNA damage that increases a patient’s probability of contracting leukemia later on in life. In fact, one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy is cancer! Astonishingly , chemotherapy and radiation therapy increase the risks of a patient developing future cancers by 300%!
Some researchers found out the truth about conventional cancer therapy, and they reported on it. Dr. Hardin B Jones, professor at University of California, conducted a 25 year study that examined the life expectancy of people with cancer and concluded that untreated cancer patients didn’t die sooner than patients who received surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. He actually found that patients who refused conventional cancer treatments actually lived about FOUR TIMES LONGER than those who took them! These findings have never been refuted to date, and his findings have actually been verified by other researchers.
A Dr. Maurice Fox, an MIT biologist, found that cancer patients that refused conventional cancer therapy had lower mortality rates than those who accepted it. Dr. Ulrich Abel, a highly-respected German epidemiologist from the Tumor Clinic of the University of Heidelberg, conducted an extensive review of the research that had been done on chemotherapy drugs.
In his paper entitled Chemotherapy of Advanced Epithelial Cancer (which was published in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet) found that there was NO scientific evidence to demonstrate that chemotherapy could extend the lives of cancer patients with the most common cancers. He actually said that chemotherapy is a “scientific wasteland” and that neither physician or patients were willing to give it up even though there is NO scientific evidence that it works. He says that 80% of chemotherapy that is given is totally worthless.
This information is very disturbing, especially to people who have chosen to believe the pronouncements of the ‘experts’ in the Medical Establishment. But this is the absolute truth about how the cancer industry functions. The bottom line is that each cancer patient is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to the cancer industry. The goal of the cancer industry is to sell their expensive poisons to patients. The ‘treatments’ for cancer promote cancer and leads to even more cancer and diseases that turn patients into repeat customers.
Instead of curing diseased patients, their diseases are managed with a lifetime of expensive, highly profitable drugs, doctor’s visits and treatments, while anything that may actually cure the patient is called quackery. With a monopoly on virtually all cancer treatments, conventional cancer treatments allow the Medical Establishment to earn obscene profits. So don’t expect any cures to come from the cancer industry because it would kill the ‘golden goose’ that cancer has become.
CANCER COVER-UP No. 1: Up to 91 Percent of Oncologists Would REFUSE Chemotherapy If They Had Cancer.
Why? Because they know it's extremely ineffective and extremely toxic. Yet shockingly, 75 percent of cancer patients are directed to receive chemotherapy.
The truth is, a rigorous review of chemotherapy reveals it fails for 98 percent of people. And when chemotherapy was tested against no treatment, no treatment proved better. What's more, only two to four percent of cancers respond well to chemotherapy.
CANCER COVER-UP No 2: Mammograms Do More Damage Than Good—and Actually HARM Ten Women for Every One It Helps!
The $4 billion-a-year mammogram industry urges women to rely on x-ray tests to protect their health. But what they don't tell you is mammograms are really an unnecessary and even harmful treatment.
A new study by researchers from the Nordic Cochrane Center in Demark reviewed the benefits and negative effects of seven breast cancer screening programs on 500,000 women—and the results were shocking.
For every 2,000 women who received mammograms over a 10-year period, only one would have her life prolonged, but ten would be harmed. Mammograms can actually increase a woman's risk of developing breast cancer by as much as 3 percent per year by irradiating the breast cells and triggering breast cancer.
Researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston discovered that women with breast cancer carry different proteins then women with no cancer—and this can be tested by a simple saliva test—so simple a dentist can do it.
CANCER COVER-UP No. 3: Big Pharma Resorts to Outrageous Lies to Convince You That Their So-Called Cancer "Cures" Work—but Don't Be Fooled!
There is a trick that cancer doctors and big drug companies use to promote their cancer treatments. They use "relative" numbers to prove the effectiveness of their cancer treatments.
For instance, if you or a loved one has breast cancer, doctors may recommend the drug Tamoxifen. You'll likely hear that it reduces the chances of breast cancer recurring by 49 percent. Sounds pretty impressive, right?
But the truth is, based on absolute numbers, Tamoxifen reduces the risk of breast cancer returning by 1.6 percent—30 times less than advertised.
"Relative" numbers are used because they can be manipulated in many ways. Relative to what? It could be to a previous test or some other obscure number.
Or you may have heard through the major media that by treating early stage breast cancer, there's a 91 percent cure rate over five years. Nonsnese! You can get the same cure rate by doing nothing, as breast cancer is a very slow growing cancer.
The point is: Don't be fooled by "relative" numbers. Get the real facts, like this one: A 14-year study by two oncologists in Australia reported in the film "A Shocking Look at Cancer Studies" that treatment for all of our major cancers is totally ineffective—way below a 10 percent success rate.
CANCER COVER-UP No. 4: Drug Companies Pay Oncologists Big "Kickbacks" to Promote High-Priced, but Ineffective Cancer Drugs.
Do you know how most oncologists make money? Not by treating patients, but by selling cancer drugs.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, as much as 75 percent of the average oncologists' earnings come from selling chemotherapy drugs in his or her office. And at a substantial mark-up!
Americans pay the highest amount for prescription drugs in the world. Big Pharma will say it's due to research and development. But the U.S. drug industry spent over $33.5 billion in promotion costs last year.
A former drug rep from Eli Lily testified before Congress saying, "Pharmaceutical companies hire former cheerleaders and ex-models to wine and dine doctors, exaggerate drug benefits and underplay side effects."
Worse, they pay oncologists kickbacks to push their drugs. For example, AstraZeneca, Inc. had to pay $280 million in civil penalties and $63 million in criminal penalties to the federal government because it paid kickbacks to doctors for promoting its prostate cancer drug.
CANCER COVER-UP No. 5: The FTC Launches a Covert Campaign to Censor Natural Cancer Remedies and Financially Ruin Doctors and Companies Offering Them.
Sad as it seems, the harassment of doctors using natural therapies to treat cancers has been going on for more than 50 years in America. Doctors treating malignant tumors with detoxification, immune stimulation, nutrient, herb and juice fasting secrets from Europe, Tibet, China and India have been persecuted and booted out of the U.S. if they wanted to continue treating cancer patients.
Take the case of William Kelly, DDS. Dr. Kelly discovered a natural enzyme therapy that, combined with strict nutrition and a detoxification regime, "digested" pancreatic cancer cells. This therapy achieved nearly a 90 percent, five-year survival rate for close to 33,000 patients—even though pancreatic cancer is by far the most rapid and deadly cancer.
What did the government do when they heard about Dr. Kelly's amazing discovery? They threw him in jail!
But now, the government is bringing out the Big Guns! The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently launched what they call "Operation False Cures" to stamp out natural cancer cures for good.
According to the FTC, "Anyone mentioning a cure for cancer is automatically a quack, regardless of science backing their position." By their own admission, they state that any mention of a cancer "cure" is by itself fraudulent. And anyone using the word "cure" on a website to promote a product is instantly presumed to be guilty of criminal acts.
A Different Perspective
To keep things on balance, here are some different perspectives about the dangers of alternative cancer treatments, the medical industry and Big Pharma. These websites believe that most of the alternative treatments are bogus and maybe even dangerous.

10 Of The Most Bizarre Quack Doctor Cures In History
Note: This is the kind of controversy and conflicting information that I ran into when I was diabetic and doing research on Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Because of all the conflicting information, I decided to educate myself about cell biology, pathology, epidemiology and several other medical sciences so that I could learn how diabetes actually develops in the human body. I felt that once I truly understood diabetes at the cellular level, I could better design an alternative strategy and nutritional program that was safe and effective.
