A controversial subject requiring serious treatment.
Once again – Questioning the traditional medical procedures and theories, as is appropriate, but coming up against the huge wall of conventionality and vested interests, probably face-saving as well. Point is, where in the priorities does patient health and well-being feature?
Authorities power, honesty and responsibility

In my quest for the truth since my father’s diagnosis of cancer, many facts have found their way into my vicinity. Facts that go to further prove that which I already intrinsically know.
This is information that every single one of us needs to know if we are to break free of the chains of sickness and misery that we are currently shackled to as a society. I would like to see us stand up to cancer by recognising the failings of the current medical system and daring to make some changes. I want to raise awareness, not through binning my bras or taking makeup-free selfies but instead, by bringing knowledge into your awareness that will change the way that we currently look at treating this disease.
Given the depth of this information, I have decided to split my findings across a series of articles. Today’s focus will be on the role of the conventional medical establishment and its regulators in the current cancer pandemic.
Cancer and the Medical Establishment
The conventional medical theory maintains that cancer is a problem that originates in the human cell, characterised by abnormal, uncontrolled cell growth. This theory is called the Molecular Theory and has remained relatively unchanged from the theory that was established in the 1950’s.
Despite this theory being put forward as fact, no one has been able to prove that the official theory of cancer is correct and that the origin of cancer is, in fact, of genetic nature. Any scientist who puts forward a different theory, no matter how much evidence they can present for their case, will quickly be discredited and in some cases silenced, before this information ever reaches the mainstream.
To allow the official theory to be disproven would cause an immense amount of embarrassment within the medical field, leaving in its wake a society that has no trust in its leaders but a closed mind is as dangerous as a loaded gun and we must all open our minds to the possibility of other theories and explanations if we are to beat this vicious disease before we allow it to beat us.
We seem to have the view in modern society that science is perfect but there are all sorts of fractions that occur within science. Physicists may substantially disagree with biologists on certain theories for example but, as always, it is he with the loudest voice or the most powerful backers that will win the battle and it is always the winners version of events that goes down in history.
“The problem with scientific proof is that the allopathic medical world has defined scientific proof so narrowly that the only thing that can be tested using their definition are drugs” says Harold Strauss, author, grandson and biographer of Dr Max Gerson, who developed the Gerson therapy – a long suppressed, natural cure for cancer.
The founding principal of the Gerson therapy is that cancer and all other chronic disease in the body stem from toxicity from polluted food, air and the environment in general as well as nutritional deficiency from too much sugar, salt, artificially flavoured, chemically treated, GMO and processed foods.
The Gerson therapy treats the cancer as a systematic disease of the abnormal chemistry of the whole body. Conventional medicine is based on the theory that eradication of the cancer growth must be performed by invasive surgery, chemotherapy or radiation without regard for abnormal body chemistry which permits the growth to occur in the first place.
One of the most important things that we need to recognise with regards to this disease is that cancer is a symptom rather than the illness itself. The tumour is simply the body’s way of letting us know that there is a problem that needs to be addressed but as is the case with the majority of illnesses, our medical system refuses to acknowledge the root cause and instead covers the symptom by blasting and burning the tumour with chemotherapy and radiation.
According to Dr Leonard Coldwell, who many experts believe has the highest success rate of curing cancer in the world, the tumour is the body’s way of keeping us alive. The body builds a tumour to collect the toxins that we continuously subject it to and keeps the poisons in one place where they will not be able to do any harm. The time when this tumour becomes dangerous is when someone does a needle biopsy or mammogram, for example, which, in both cases, may burst the tumour, causing the toxins to be released into the system. The person may then find that they suddenly have a fast growing and aggressive cancer that was not there before.
Treatment, in mainstream medicine, is considered a success when the tumour is no longer visible but many cancers that have gone into remission come back at a later date. Dr Bradford.S.Weeks MD, researcher and scientist has said that “cancer is the symptom of other dis-ease or imbalances within the body. Unless you change the behaviour that is causing it, the cancer will simply manifest elsewhere”.
It seems to me that there has been a huge increase in illness since the start of the chemical revolution. “We have created over 75,000 synthetic chemicals since 1940. They are in the food chain, they are in us and they have contaminated every single creature on earth” says David Wolfe, MA and super foods expert. Our bodies do not know how to process the chemicals and man made foods that we are inflicting on it on a day to day basis.
Surely understanding what is causing the dramatic increase in cancer that we are now seeing would help us to take the relevant precautions to prevent further suffering going forward and yet the catastrophic affects of the massive influx of chemicals, which has also led to the increase in poor nutrition, go largely ignored by the medical community.
Preservatives found in baby care products, for example, have been found in breast cancer tumours. We have 30,000 to 50,000 chemicals in our bodies that our grandparents did not have. The average new born baby has 287 known chemicals in their umbilical cord blood by the time that they even take their first breath, 208 of which are carcinogenic.
Many of these chemicals have been linked to the sky rocketing of childhood disease. Incidence of childhood leukaemia has risen by 20% in a generation according to the Office for National Statistics UK. 21% of children in the USA now have mental or developmental problems. There has been a 600% increase in autism in the past 20 years and a 57% increase between 2002 and 2006 in the USA.
Tyrone B Hayes, biologist and professor of Integrative Biology at University of California, Berkeley has shown that the herbicide Atrazine, the largest selling product for the largest chemical company in the world and the number one contaminant of ground water, rain water and drinking water  has been found to cause a severe hormonal imbalance that demasculinises and feminises male frogs. Atrazine turns on the enzyme, aromatase, which converts testosterone into oestrogen. Breast cancer, the number one form of cancer in women, is regulated by oestrogen, too much of which turns on the growth of the cancer  which then turns into a tumour and spreads.
This process is widely understood within the medical community. In fact, the latest treatment for breast cancer is the chemical Letrozole which blocks aromatase and oestrogen. However, even with this knowledge, we continue to use 80,000,000 pounds worth of Atrazine, which promotes the cancer, whilst the SAME company that makes it, now sells us the blocker!
Our governments and our regulatory bodies, the very people that we trust to protect us, are allowing this to happen. “Instead of treating disease by preventing exposure to chemicals that promote it, we respond by putting more chemicals into the environment” says Tyrone. It seems that, as long as vast sums of money can be made in selling these chemicals, the affects to our health will always come in a distant second.
According to the American Cancer Society, 95% of cancers are caused by environmental toxicity. In the early 1900’s, the cancer rate was only 7%. This was before chemicals were added to our foods and chemtrails were sprayed into the air. Prior to the industrial revolution in the 1800’s, your chance of getting cancer was minimal.
The EPA estimates that approximately 74,000,000,000 pounds of chemicals are being produced or imported every day into the USA alone, not including pharmaceuticals, pesticides, food additives and fuels, which are the four largest classes of chemicals. Most women will absorb around 2 pounds of toxins through their skin alone each year from cosmetic products.
1 in 2.3 men and 1 in 2.6 women will now have cancer in their lifetime. The British journal of cancer estimates that going forward, 1 in 2 people will get cancer. According to figures given by Macmillan and Cancer Research, this figure rose from 1 in 4 in 1975 to 1 in 3 in 1992, meaning that the amount of people suffering from this disease has nearly doubled in only 40 years. To put this into terms that people can really relate to, up until 1992, 1 person in every family of 4 would likely be diagnosed with cancer, now 2 people in every family of 4 is likely to suffer from this disease in their lifetime.
Both Cancer Research and Macmillan cite an increase in life expectancy as the reason for this dramatic increase and therefore do not look any further into the causation of cancer but this does not take into account the substantial increase in child incidence rates which increased by 30% in boys and 35% in girls between 1975 and 2004 in the UK., Nor does it take into account the rise in colon cancer incidence rates in patients younger than the screening age which are expected to double by 2030 according to a study published in JAMA surgery.
In 1926, cancer was the 10th cause of death in children in America. It is now the leading cause of death by disease amongst children in the US.
Surely understanding what has caused these figures to increase so dramatically would help us to take the relevant precautions to prevent further suffering going forward and yet the catastrophic affects of this massive influx of chemicals go largely ignored by the medical community.
Proposition 65, an initiative approved by Californian voters, requires the state to publish a list of chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm. Since it was first published in 1987, it has listed approximately 800 such chemicals. These chemicals include additives, ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, dyes or solvents and pharmaceuticals.
The fact that proposition 65 exists shows that both government and big pharma are fully aware of the fact that many chemicals cause cancer as well as having many other devastating affects to our health but rather than remove these harmful products, instead, we are subjected to them through the food that we eat, the vaccinations that we are recommended and even the air that we breathe. We are then told that in order to negate the detrimental affect that these chemicals have had on our bodies, we must add even more chemicals to our already weakened immune system in order to combat the diseases that we now find ourselves with.
Our immune system is our first line of defence when it comes to any illness. “If you have cancer then you have to have a compromised immune system” says Dr Rashid Bottar D.O and advanced medical physician.
We are all born with potentially cancerous cells, which are continuously created in our bodies  but our immune system works to keep them regulated. Immune deficiencies mean that they can no longer be kept in check. A weakened immune system, therefore, allows cancer cells to grow
Chemical warfare has been pronounced on our bodies and our immune systems are not equipped to work under such aggressive and toxic conditions. Never before have our bodies been bombarded with such toxicity and so, instead of being able to fight off these naturally occurring cancerous cells, our immune systems are overloaded with trying to break down the heavy toxins and poisons that they are subjected to on a daily basis.
The anti-cancer drugs that are currently in use are highly poisonous and are generally more deadly to healthy tissue than they are to the malignant cell. We treat a disease that is activated by a weakened immune system by putting further toxins into the body for the immune system to have to work hard to break down. Shockingly, these drugs are also labelled as carcinogenic, meaning that the treatment that is used to fight cancer also causes it.
The number of people who get cancer but die from another cause has doubled in the past 20 years. Roughly 20% die from ischaemic heart disease, 20% from respiratory disease such as pneumonia and a further 12% from cerebrarascular disease such as stroke, all of which are side effects of chemotherapy.
The number of people who die from cancer has remained steady since 1992 at around 150,000-160,000  per year in the UK. Whilst conventional medicine may be able to claim that more people are surviving their diagnosis of cancer, it seems to me that this increase in survival rate is more of a reflection on the growing number of incidences rather than the effectiveness of the treatment itself.
Those who advocate conventional medicine always argue that alternative treatments may be dangerous but we already know that chemo IS dangerous! Any risk of danger that comes from nature does not come from nature itself but instead from mans lack of understanding as to how to work with nature. Due to, not only, the advancement of modern medicine, science and technology but also the complete take over of our minds and attitudes towards the way that we treat disease and the earth itself, we have forgotten that which our ancestors knew for many millennia when it comes to working with the incredible power that is nature.
We have been told that we are on the cusp of finding a cure for cancer since 1971 when the war against cancer first begun and yet these figures tell a very different story. Thousands more lives are lost every year whilst we continue to believe this line instead of looking at what is actually causing this disease to have become the pandemic that it is today. We appear to be ignoring that which is staring us in the face, if only we would open our eyes.
Albert Einstein said that ‘doing the same thing twice and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity’ and yet we continue to bang our heads against a brick wall within a system that just isn’t working! It’s time to stand up to cancer in the right way, by recognising the failings of our current system and having the courage to admit to our misunderstanding of how this disease works in order to bring about a real change.
Unless we change our relationship with chemicals and food, the likelihood is that cancer rates will double again in the next 40 years. Will we stand up and take notice then? Or will we continue to allow industry to lie to us and to poison us with chemicals?
Let us arm ourselves with knowledge so that we can no longer be misled. Let us be the generation who breaks free and reclaims our health from the control and greed of others. Let us change the fate of our grandchildren, for surely, if we don’t, each and every one of them will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
In my upcoming articles, I will be discussing the devastating affects that pharmaceuticals, factory farming, GMOs and poor nutrition are having on our bodies.
