Chapter 7: Cancer Research
Cancer Research Today
The reason progress stopped in curing cancer is because pharmaceutical companies cannot patent natural substances, and it is patents that allow them to make their billions of dollars in profits. With a patent you have no competition, meaning you can charge whatever the "market" will pay. In other words, if a treatment for cancer came along that used only vitamins, minerals, enzymes, etc., all from nature, the pharmaceutical industry would not make any money on this treatment plan, or if they owned a vitamin company (which some of them do), they would not make very much. They only make gigantic profits on treatment plans that use their man-made chemicals. Plus it is more profitable for them to treat symptoms than to treat causes. Thus the pharmaceutical industry uses their vast wealth to pay others to suppress and crush the truth about alternative treatments for cancer.
There are literally hundreds of molecules that occur in nature that can kill cancer cells or stop the metastasis (spread) of cancer. Some of these are used by the pharmaceutical industry to design their mutated molecules. But the pharmaceutical industry is not interested in promoting the unmutated molecules that occur in nature, because they cannot be patented. They must isolate one of these molecules and then figure out a way to modify it so they can patent it. But these molecules are extremely complex and it is not easy to synthesize them and modify them and still maintain their safety and effectiveness.
Since the 1920s, more than 100 natural treatments for cancer have been developed that are far superior to surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Every one of these treatment plans, which yield better cure rates and less pain, have been brutally suppressed by the pharmaceutical industry, the AMA (American Medical Association, which is effectively a labor union), the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and its predecessors, and the medical community.
But there is an even bigger issue here. Are the pharmaceutical companies even looking for a cure for cancer? Let us suppose they were able to modify one of the natural molecules and totally cure cancer in a patient in a matter of days. Would they make this substance known to the world? They would not because patents are only for a fixed number of years. When this number of years is up, it could be made generic and that would be the end of their gravy train.
This alliance or conspiracy has totally stopped progress in the treatment of cancer. Instead of looking for cures for cancer outside of the "Big 3" (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation), virtually all research is based on gradually "improving" and "perfecting" the Big 3 or on equally profitable man-made substances that do not selectively kill cancer cells. In this way there is always a cure "just around the corner."
Virtually all cancer surgery is unnecessary. Chemotherapy is nothing but toxic sludge, yet the medical community is spending a vast, vast percentage of their research money on "perfecting" this virtually useless cancer treatment plan. Knowing how much damage chemotherapy does to the immune system, the person's vital organs, the person's DNA, etc. is yet another absurdity in the "scientific evidence" that is used to get the FDA to approve the toxic chemotherapy sludge.
Radiation treatments simply burn the cancer cells to death, and burn the patient as well.
If I were to list the 50 most proven treatments for cancer (proven to be effective and safe), from among all treatments for cancer, chemotherapy and radiation would not be on that list. Nor would they be in the top 100. Yet, it is research on chemotherapy and radiation treatments (and more recently DNA research) that dominate medical research today. The money spent on chemotherapy and radiation would be better spent on studying the 50 most proven treatment plans!
Another reason the viable treatment plans have been suppressed is because virtually all of these 50 treatment plans are very inexpensive compared to the Big 3. I will translate that into English: less profits and less income for everyone from the pharmaceutical industry to doctors to hospitals to insurance companies, and so on. The "Top 50" are far more effective treatments, less painful and far safer treatments, but the deciding factor is this: less profitable.
So why is cancer research intentionally headed in the wrong direction? If I were to list the 50 overall most expensive and most profitable treatments for cancer, not only would chemotherapy, radiation and surgery be at the top of this list (along with other orthodox treatments), but for a typical cancer patient, an orthodox treatment plan would be more expensive than almost all 50 of the most effective and safest treatments - combined!
While it is true that the pharmaceutical industry has provided America with a marvelous standard of health, the pharmaceutical industry has gone into areas it has no business being in, in order to enhance its "earnings per share." It would be safe to say that virtually all (but not all) cancer research today is a search for ever more expensive and ever more profitable treatments for cancer.
Gene Therapy Research
Gene therapy, the current hot research topic, promises to be more expensive, and just as useless overall in the short term, as interferon treatments. As I state in another article, Dr. Livingston's team demonstrated that the DNA damage in cancer cells is caused by the same microbes that cause cancer! In other words, DNA damage does not cause cancer, rather cancer causes the DNA damage.
To understand this quote, consider that the human DNA has between 45,000 and 60,000 genes. These genes lead to the creation of between 450,000 and 600,000 different proteins in the human body. How long will it take, and how much will it cost, to study how all of these proteins work together? When will we see cancer deaths significantly reduced due to this technology? We will be bankrupt as a country long before that happens!
But as just mentioned, "fixing" the DNA damage would be like fixing a flat tire, but not removing the nail that caused the tire to go flat in the first place.
What "gene therapy" does is allow the medical research establishment yet another dead-end road to go down. And while they are going down that road they will receive billions of dollars in contributions and will not extend the life of a single cancer patient by one minute!! The media will constantly adore these cancer "researchers" and the general public will also adore them and give them lots and lots of money.
Gene therapy is expensive. If the money spent on the exotic gene research were spent on the proven and practical alternative treatments for cancer, cancer could be eradicated within 5 years. (Note: It is equally important that this money and research be controlled by alternative practitioners instead of corrupt government officers and corrupt fundraisers.) By doing this, cancer would be a very embarrassing footnote in history books.
In fact, it is the most ludicrous and asinine statement on earth to note that the FDA allows human trials for gene therapy, but not for natural substances (i.e. alternative medicine). There is no proof so blatant as to the corruption in the FDA than this simple fact.
Cancer Research Funding
Virtually all cancer research funding in the world today is controlled by the pharmaceutical industry directly or indirectly (i.e. indirectly via its political clout in Washington D.C. and its control over such organizations as the ACS). It is easy to see how they make their decisions as to which projects to study. The more expensive, the more exotic, and the projects with the least potential for quick cures, get the money.
The pharmaceutical industry also controls most privately funded research for cancer by suppressing the truth about cancer treatments from the sponsors and administrators of these private funds. Those handful of nonprofit organizations that claim to research alternative treatments for cancer generally are run by pro-orthodox people, thus neutralizing their purpose. Hint: If you are going to fund a nonprofit organization to support alternative medicine, make sure its head person has a long history of fighting for alternative medicine and fighting against the corruption in orthodox medicine. Do not hire an M.D. who promises to "look into alternative medicine with an open mind" or you are wasting your money.
Some foundations, which are created by major owners of Big Pharma stock, pretend to be charitable foundations, but in fact they exist solely to control the kind of cancer research being done, to insure it is in line with orthodox goals. Any research funded by foundations created by Big Pharma stockholders is going to be forced into orthodox research, or they will lose their funding. This includes medical schools.
In addition, the pharmaceutical industry has funded and supported a large misinformation network on the internet. Scores of web sites, including the quackwatch website, the ACS website, the NCI (National Cancer Institute, a government agency) website, etc. have nothing but misinformation about natural treatment plans.
The FDA and FTC (Federal Trade Commission) are doing everything in their power to crush anyone who sells cancer treatments that work (note: they also crush cancer treatments that don't work, thus it appears to the public that every treatment plan they crush doesn't work, but many of them do work - it is truly unfortunate that there really are some quacks out there, the quacks do their worst damage to society by giving orthodox medicine the ammunition to make all alternative cancer treatments, even the valid ones, look ineffective). The AMA will yank the license of any doctor that uses these treatment plans. The FDA and FTA are also trying to shut down web sites that sell valid products that treat cancer. I will say more about these things later.
Thus we have a situation where medical progress came to a grinding halt over 80 years ago. Heart disease prevention progress has also stopped in its tracks. Considering the direction political corruption is moving, progress will never start again. At the current time there is an "information conspiracy" to crush the truth about alternative treatments. But soon there will also be an "availability conspiracy," meaning people will not be able to buy the substances necessary to treat cancer with natural substances. Corruption and greed are growing at an alarming rate. And anyone who tries to slow it down is crushed.
There have been many books written on why you don't know about the best treatment plans for cancer, such as:
World Without Cancer, by G. Edward Griffin,
The reason you don't know about any of these scores of books is because they don't get any publicity in the media. When a book comes out that makes orthodox medicine look good, it is likely to get lots of free publicity in the media. But not the books that support alternative medicine and certainly not the books that expose the corruption in Big Pharma and its puppets.
