The end of the war against cancer

Women are now the main victims

Tijn Touber | December 2004 issue

The war against cancer is being won… but not by the pharmaceutical industry. Not even by the medical profession. The war, which was declared over 30 years ago by former U.S. president Richard Nixon, is not even being won in hospitals and laboratories. The British medical newsletter What Doctors Don’t Tell You (July 2004) reports who is winning the war: patients. Increasing numbers of people are taking the reins themselves and changing directions about how the disease is treated. They sometimes turn away from standard procedures—operations, radiation and chemotherapy—and seek a cure in detoxification and strict diets. What used to be called a “spontaneous cure” has now been documented as a reproducible experiment.

This has fueled theories there could be a “button” to switch off cancer. But the multi-billion-dollar cancer industry—some $ 2 trillion U.S. was spent on research over a 30-year period according to the Wall Street Journal—won’t find it as long as it races headlong down the same old paths. What Doctors Don’t Tell You verifies that all the money spent has not been able to prevent a doubling of the number of cancer-related deaths over 30 years. From the beginning of World War Two to 1991, more people have died from cancer in the United States—where the most money has been spent on cancer research—each year compared to the one before.

There has been something of a shift in a number of types of cancer over the past 10 years, but the disease remains mysterious: it is still not clear exactly how cancer develops, how it spreads and how it can be cured. And medical science’s diagnostic methods are not only imprecise, but in many cases dangerous. For example, one in 15 women develops breast cancer as a result of a biopsy (Acta Radiol Suppl, 2001; 42: 1-22). A biopsy for liver cancer raises the stakes to a “significant risk” of one in six for developing liver cancer (Dis Colon Rectum, 2003; 46: 454-8).

In the battle against cancer, women are increasingly the victims. According to the American environment magazine E-Magazine (September/October 2004), one in 30 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 1960. That number is now one in eight. This is mainly due to the increasing presence of chemical substances in our environment, explains E. Of the 80,000 chemical compounds now in use, the majority of which have never been tested for health effects—especially not over the long-term. Some 2,000 new chemicals are introduced annually.

What is known, however, is that the body stores waste products in fat tissue and women have more body fat than men. It is also know that a large number of chemical substances tend to mimic the female hormone estrogen in the body. And there are indications that an excess of estrogen can lead to breast cancer.

In fact it may turn out that chemical drugs that doctors prescribe to heal us may be a cause of cancer. Chemotherapy, for instance, only has a favorable effect in three percent of all types of cancer, according to WDDTY. Not only that, but patients receiving these powerful drugs often develop new types of cancer in time. Doctors are aware of the limitations of chemotherapy. What Doctors Don’t Tell You cites a study (Br J Cancer, 1986; 54:661-7) in which Canadian doctors were asked if they would ever use chemotherapy themselves. A majority said no based on the fact that it is toxic and inefficient.

There is now a growing army of doctors and researchers who no longer approach the disease from the perspective of waging war, and focus instead on the underlying causes. The British newsletter cites Lothar Hirneise, founder of Germany’s Menschen gegen Krebs (People Against Cancer) as an authority with a fresh outlook. Hirneise (see the interview in Ode, October 2003) does not necessarily see cancer as an adversarial intruder, but as part of the body’s emergency strategy. Tumors mainly live on sugar, according to Hirneise, and that’s exactly what most people in our modern consumer society have too much of. The theory is that tumors are the body’s alarm bell, urgently warning that it’s time to reverse unhealthy habits.

In addition to a thorough detoxification and a healthy diet, honest self-examination is an important part of the healing process from cancer. Research into people who “spontaneously” went into remission shows that many of them gained insight into themselves and patterns in their life, and made new choices as a result. This new movement of cancer doctors and researchers isn’t bothered by the medical establishment’s claim that their work is not grounded in reality. They know that, especially when the subject is cancer, results are what counts. They know that you don’t simply win a war by conquering your enemy, but by eradicating its breeding ground.

How women can prevent cancer
A change in eating habits is the best way to reduce the chance of getting breast cancer, according to Dr. Samuel Epstein, chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition. Epstein is convinced that women are better off drinking organic rather than regular cow’s milk, because non-organic milk contains the artificial hormone rBGH. This hormone strongly resembles estrogen, which can cause hormone levels in a woman’s body to rise, increasing the chance of breast cancer. Epstein also warns against eating meat from animals given estrogen-like substances to the meat more tender. He counsels shifting to more of a vegetarian diet and buying organic meat.

It is generally wise to increase consumption of fruit and vegetables, according to Dr. Mary Wolff, who teaches in the preventative care department of the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York. Fresh fruit and vegetables supply antioxidants and vitamins that can help prevent cancer. They are also a good source of fiber, which can help eliminate an excess of estrogen from the body. Because too much estrogen can cause problems, Wolff warns against hormone therapy and extended use of birth control pills. Other doctors are studying the link between cancer and antiperspirants, which can block the glands in the armpits and prevent estrogen traces from being excreted. There are several non-chemical deodorants sold by companies like Weleda and Jason.

You can also get your water tested for heavy metals and pesticides. Eating organic food is recommended. Try to use iron, glass or stainless steel cookware instead of aluminum or Teflon. Be careful with carpeting and fabric covers that are treated for water and stain-resistance. Switch to natural cosmetics, products made with unbleached paper and non-toxic cleaning products. Use glass or ceramic crockery for eating and storage instead of plastic. Limit your consumption of canned tuna fish and opt for washable natural fabrics and clothing instead of synthetics that have to be dry-cleaned.

The best alternative therapies

According to Lothar Hirneise of Menschen gegen Krebs and Frank Wiewel of People Against Cancer, many people surviving cancer did some or all of the following measures:

1. They found psychological or emotional cause of their illness and made changes in their life.

2. They changed their diet. Recommended plans include: The Metabolic Typing Diet, developed by William Wollcot; The Stockholm Protocol, based on co-enzyme Q10; the Gerson diet and other raw food diets; and Dr. Johanna Budwig’s oil and protein diet.

3. They detoxified their body, using methods such as colon cleanses using coffee enemas; removing amalgam fillings in their teeth; and taking baths in baking soda to remove acid from cells.

4. They killed the cancer gently, by such means as PAPIMI, which uses electromagnetism to increase the voltage levels in cells; Electro-Galvano which uses low voltage electricity to shrink tumors; and heat therapy, which increases the temperature of tumors to 44 degrees Celsius (112 degrees Fahrenheit).
