Every year in the UK, 200,000 people are diagnosed with cancer and 152,500 people die. In the U.S., the annual death rate for this disease is approximately 547,000. These deaths are recorded as cancer deaths, but how many of these deaths are really attributable to the disease itself? How many deaths should, in fact, be recorded as “death by doctoring”?
When we consider that conventional treatment consists almost entirely of radiation, chemotherapy and the long-term application of toxic pharmaceuticals, treatments which are all well known for their life-threatening side-effects, then the question becomes all the more legitimate.
On chemotherapy, for instance, note the following:
Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade, yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors.
— Allen Levin, MD UCSF, The Healing of Cancer
The extraordinary evidence to substantiate Levin’s observations plus many other damning statements on conventional cancer treatments are presented for the reader in the following pages. We examine the much-publicized story of U.K. media personality, the late John Diamond, who opted for conventional treatment. What does his story tell us?
John was known for his critical attitude toward many of the more popular alternative therapies. We look at some aspects of the alternative approach and ask if his criticisms were entirely undeserved. We hear from those within the cancer establishment itself who cite the conventional cut, burn and dissolve techniques as ugly and inhumane and from those who seriously question the amounts of money being invested in conventional cancer today given the depressingly low recovery rate. In the U.K. alone, £2.8billion a year is spent in the conventional cancer emporium. That’s roughly £6,800,000 a day. U.S. spending on cancer is 10 times higher.
We also hear from those who defied conventional wisdom and opted for non-toxic, non-conventional cancer treatments, with remarkable results. And no, we are not talking dolphin or pyramid therapy. From the known range of anti-cancer treatments available, this story focuses on the naturally occurring Vitamin B17, Vitamin C and the supporting role of nutrition. Vitamin B17, in particular, has been attracting a great deal of attention recently, despite the concerted efforts of the worldwide cancer establishment to suppress or distort all the positive reporting on this vitamin.
Some may balk at this accusation. We must realize, however, that with global spending on conventional cancer running into the hundreds of billions of pounds and dollars annually, any news of a successful anti-cancer treatment extracted from the simple apricot kernel could do some serious damage to the wealth of the mighty Cancer Inc. In the following pages, we read the testimonies and evidence in support of this charge.
But first, by way of introduction to the subject of “death by doctoring,” we travel back a few hundred years, to the bedside of King Charles II, where 14 of the highest physicians in the land are earnestly “reviving” the king from a stroke.
Mr. Ransom, I share your thoughts and I applaud you for your courage for bringing us Death by Doctoring. The most dangerous place on planet earth is the hospital — next is the doctor's office, followed closely by the dentist's office.
