The Four Parts of Any Truth Table

If you are married, there is a greater than 60 percent probability that either you or your spouse (or both) is going to be diagnosed with cancer in your lifetimes. That percentage keeps going up.

At some point in your life you have probably heard about cancer treatments that use natural substances, such as vitamins, enzymes, minerals, etc. This type of medicine is usually called “alternative medicine.” What you heard about alternative medicine may have made you feel good about it or it may have made you feel bad about it. Either way, at the time, you probably weren't motivated to do the research to find out the truth.

Perhaps, whether you have cancer or not, you wanted to know the truth about whether alternative cancer treatments or orthodox cancer treatments were more effective, safer, less painful, etc. If you understood the process of finding the truth, you would go through the four steps of the “truth table.”

1) Learn the good things about orthodox cancer treatments from the orthodox medicine supporters.
2) Learn the bad things about alternative cancer treatments from the orthodox medicine supporters.

and you would (this line represents the symbolic “fence” between orthodox medicine and alternative medicine):

3) Learn the good things about alternative cancer treatments, from the alternative medicine supporters.
4) Learn the bad things about orthodox cancer treatments, from the alternative medicine supporters.

On one side of the “fence” are the people who represent orthodox medicine who will gladly tell you the good things about orthodox medicine and the bad things about alternative medicine. On the other side of the fence are the alternative medicine representatives. If you were an expert on what the people on both sides of the fence were saying (i.e. you were an expert in all four items in the truth table), then you would be in a position to make an intelligent decision about which side has the best treatments.

The problem is that when people have heard the good things about orthodox medicine from the orthodox medicine supporters, and they have heard the bad things about alternative medicine from the orthodox medicine supporters, they think they are experts on both subjects. But they are not experts in either subject because they have not heard a word from the alternative medicine supporters.

While this sounds like a simple concept, it is virtually impossible for the average person to comprehend. Why should they listen to people they have been told all their life not to listen to? I am going to repeat that last paragraph:

The problem is that when people have heard the good things about orthodox medicine, from the orthodox medicine supporters, and they have heard the bad things about alternative medicine, from the orthodox medicine supporters, they think they are experts on both subjects. But, they are not experts in either subject because they have not heard a word from the alternative medicine supporters.

Here is the eternal truth: If orthodox medicine supporters (e.g. the American Cancer Society) will lie to you about how good orthodox cancer treatments are, then the orthodox medicine supporters (e.g. quackwatch) will also lie to you about how bad alternative cancer treatments are. That is why you don't know the truth about either orthodox or alternative cancer treatments.

Many thousands of times you have heard how wonderful orthodox doctors are via shows such as M*A*S*H, Marcus Welby, MD, other doctor and hospital TV shows, news programs, magazines, advertisements, etc. These things naturally transfer to you believing that orthodox cancer treatments must also be wonderful (i.e. truth table #1). And you have no doubt heard dozens of bad things about alternative cancer treatments (truth table #2). Notice from the above table that both of these items come from orthodox medicine supporters. In other words, you have heard all of these things from the same side of the fence.

You have probably never heard anything bad about orthodox cancer treatments (truth table #4), and in all likelihood, you have never heard anything good about alternative cancer treatments (truth table #3). Why haven't you heard very much, if anything, from alternative medicine supporters?

When you have only heard from the people on one side of the fence for your entire life, you should wonder why.

  • “An educated person is one who has learned that information almost always turns out to be at best incomplete and very often false, misleading, fictitious, mendacious – just dead wrong.” ~ Russell Wayne Baker (1947 – ) American Journalist

Is what you hear in the media based on who has the most truth or is it based on who has the most money?

To demonstrate just how one-sided your information has been, answer these two questions. First, when was the last time you saw a dramatic show on a major television network where the hero was an alternative medicine practitioner who was making alternative cancer treatments look safe and effective? Second, name 10 of the most effective alternative cancer treatments?

What you are about to read will contradict everything you have heard in your life. Your natural reaction at times will be disbelief. But if you are willing to finish reading this eBook (i.e. about truth table #3 and truth table #4), it could very well lead to a journey that will save your life or the life of a loved one.

After studying all four parts of the above truth table for hundreds of hours, as I have, I am certain it will be in your best interests to continue reading. Before going on, let us first clarify a key point. Some readers probably think that this eBook is about comparing:

1) Orthodox treatments, enhanced or complemented with alternative treatments (called “complementary medicine”), versus

2) Orthodox treatments without alternative treatments.

While this would be an interesting topic, it has nothing to do with this eBook. This eBook is about comparing:

1) Orthodox treatments without alternative treatments, versus,

2) Alternative treatments without orthodox treatments (in most cases).

In other words, this eBook is about using alternative cancer treatments, meaning the use of natural substances, instead of orthodox treatments. Welcome to truth table #3 and truth table #4. You need to start thinking about natural substances as a complete, stand-alone treatment for cancer.

An Alternative Cancer Treatment Quiz

Let's find out what you know about alternative treatments:

Question #1: Dr. Ewan Cameron, and two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, did studies in Scotland (which were duplicated by studies in Canada and Japan) comparing Vitamin C therapy to chemotherapy. Which group of patients, the ones on vitamin C or chemotherapy, lived longer on average, and by how much?

Question #2: An American alternative cancer treatment doctor treated 33,000 cancer patients, many of whom had been given up for dead by orthodox medicine and had been sent home to die. What was his verified cure rate?

Question #3: Fill in the blank: “In a review of 206 human studies, [which food] consistently emerged as one of the top cancer-fighting foods.”

Question #4: How many Nobel Prize discoveries (and when were they awarded) did Dr. Johanna Budwig use to help her develop the Flaxseed Oil (omega 3) / Cottage Cheese (sulfur proteins) cancer treatment?

Question #5: It is absurd to think that a person can be cured of cancer simply by changing their diet. Only professionals can cure cancer. True or false?

Let's answer these questions:

Question #1

Question #1: Dr. Ewan Cameron, and two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, did studies in Scotland (which were duplicated by studies in Canada and Japan) comparing Vitamin C therapy to chemotherapy. Which group of patients, the ones on vitamin C or chemotherapy, lived longer on average, and by how much?

Answer: The vitamin C patients lived an average of ten times longer than the chemotherapy patients. I don't know why anyone would be surprised at this result. Cancer in many cases is nothing but a symptom of a weakened immune system. Chemotherapy virtually destroys an already weakened immune system, and it is the immune system that deals with cancer on a normal basis. On the other hand, Vitamin C helps build the immune system. It makes sense that someone who has had their immune system built up would outlive someone who had their immune system destroyed.

Because Dr. Pauling was world famous and had an impeccable reputation for quality and integrity, a person might wonder why the orthodox medical community did not do further studies on Vitamin C and cancer. They did do further studies on Vitamin C. But the purpose of these studies was to discredit Dr. Pauling and Dr. Cameron, as previously mentioned.

Question #2

Question #2: An American alternative cancer treatment doctor treated 33,000 cancer patients, many of whom had been given up for dead by orthodox medicine and had been sent home to die. What was his verified cure rate?

Answer: Dr. William Donald Kelley, a dentist by training, had a 93 percent cure rate on patients who were not too far gone before they went to him. This cure rate was verified by a 5-year study by an orthodox doctor. His technique is called “metabolic” therapy, and guess what, it was designed to build the immune system and safely and selectively kill cancer cells.

But what is of even more significance is the answer to this question: “if we factor out all of his patients who went to orthodox doctors before they went to Dr. Kelley, and only counted those who went to Dr. Kelley first, what would his cure rate have been?” First of all, even for orthodox medicine, the vast majority of cancer patients live for at least a year and a half after their first diagnosis. But for Dr. Kelley it is logical to conclude that an even higher percentage of cancer patients, who went to him first, lived for at least a year and a half because Dr. Kelley's treatment does not damage the immune system, rather it builds the immune system. Furthermore, Dr. Kelley had a high cure rate even for pancreatic cancer patients who went to him first. In other words, virtually all of the cancer patients who went to Dr. Kelley first were in the group that had a 93 percent cure rate! If we further make the even more obvious conclusion that among those cancer patients in the 93 percent statistic, those who went to him first had at least as high a cure rate as those who went to orthodox medicine first, then we can logically conclude that his cure rate on patients who went to him first was probably around 90 percent.

All of this is a highly logical conclusion for three reasons:

First, he used the identical treatment regardless of whether his patient went to him first or orthodox medicine first,

Second, for those patients who went to orthodox medicine first, Dr. Kelley lost a lot of time before he was able to start treating these patients. In other words, he started their treatments after their cancer was further along (compared to those who went to him first), and

Third, those patients who went to orthodox medicine first had their immune systems severely compromised before they went to Dr. Kelley (in other words, for those who went to Dr. Kelley first, they still had their immune system intact), thus Dr. Kelley had to rebuild that portion of their immune system before his treatment started to become fully effective. This loss of time was in addition to the lost time caused by these patients going to orthodox medicine first. It is obvious that if 10,000 new cancer patients, who had not had any orthodox treatments, went to Dr. Kelley first, his overall cure rate for these people would be close to 90 percent, and perhaps even higher. That is far, far higher than the patients who go to orthodox medicine first.

Dr. Kelley's reward by orthodox medicine for his high cure rate was to be thrown in jail. Kelley also had to move his treatment to Mexico. Fortunately, he wrote a book about his treatment: Cancer, Curing The Incurable Without Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiation before his death in early 2005.

Because Dr. Kelley had such an incredibly high cure rate for cancer, much, much higher than orthodox medicine, you might wonder why the orthodox medical community does not study Dr. Kelley's treatment to see if there are ways to improve it.

Why doesn't the orthodox community use Dr. Kelley's treatment in order to obtain a quick and immediate 90 percent cure rate for new cancer patients, then find ways to improve on it to get even higher cure rates?

While the Kelley Metabolic treatment is perfectly capable of curing a person's cancer, I should note that it is not advised that it be the primary treatment for someone who has been on chemotherapy. Some newer treatments do not depend on building the immune system before they fully work, thus they are far more effective for patients who have had their immune system compromised by chemotherapy.

Question #3

Question #3: Fill in the blank: “In a review of 206 human studies, [which food] consistently emerged as one of the top cancer-fighting foods.”

Answer: Here is the complete quote: “In a review of 206 human studies, carrots consistently emerged as one of the top cancer-fighting foods. The power of carrots lies in the group of pigments called carotenoids (beta-carotene is among this group), which give them their orange color.”

While it is nice that scientists have made this discovery, carrots were used to cure cancer long before any of the 206 human studies the quote refers to. Raw vegetable juices, with raw carrots as the main ingredient, coupled with a customized vegan diet, as a replacement for the meat and dairy centered “Western” diet, has cured many, many thousands of people of cancer.

I might add that carrot juice is the main ingredient in the vegetable juice that serves at the heart of the “Raw Food Diet,” for which there is an article on this website.

However, carrot juice based protocols are not rated in the top layer of alternative cancer treatments for advanced cancer patients. However, carrot juice is part of some of the best treatments.

Question #4

Question #4: How many Nobel Prize discoveries (and when were they awarded) did Dr. Johanna Budwig use to help her develop the Flaxseed Oil (omega 3) / Cottage Cheese (sulfur proteins) cancer treatment?

Answer: Two Nobel Prizes, Dr. Otto Warburg (1931) and Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi (1937). First, Dr. Warburg:

  • “Dr. Otto Warburg, twice Nobel laureate was able to prove that cancer cannot grow in a high oxygen environment. He states: ‘Cancer, above all diseases, has countless secondary causes, but there is only one prime cause: the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of body cells by anaerobic respiration’. In other words, lack of oxygen. His research revealed that when a cell is denied 60 percent of its normal requirement of oxygen, it switches to a fermentation mechanism and grows out of control.” http://www.internethealthlibrary.com/Therapies/OxygenTherapy.htm

Second, Dr. Szent-Gyorgyi:

  • “Dr. Szent-Gyorgy won the Nobel Prize in 1937 for discovering essential fatty acids combined with sulfur-rich proteins (such as those found in dairy products) increases oxygenation of the body.”
    http://www.healingdaily.com/conditions/cancer-prevention-measures.htm

Note that both of these Nobel Prizes were awarded in the 1930s. Dr. Budwig developed a diet to combine these two discoveries into one simple treatment plan – flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. Her treatment has cured untold thousands of cancer patients.

Her protocol is actually an integral part of two of the most potent alternative cancer treatments: the Cellect-Budwig Protocol and the Bill Henderson Protocol.

Question #5

Question #5: It is absurd to think that a person can be cured of cancer simply by changing their diet. Only professionals can cure cancer. True or false?

Answer: I quote from alternative medicine expert Walter Last:

  • “To show how simple natural methods can be very effective in overcoming advanced cancer, I like to mention an example from the book The Food and Health of Western Man by Dr J. L. Mount. In five reported cases of bowel cancer, surgery revealed that metastases had already spread all over the body. Therefore, these patients were just closed up again and sent home to die. But instead of doing that, independently of each other, these five changed their diets and from then on ate only homegrown organically raised food. When they finally did die 21 to 30 years later, no traces of cancer could be found in post-mortem examinations. Such cures without medical intervention are regarded as ‘spontaneous remissions‘.”

    http://www.mrbean.net.au/~wlast/cancerintroduction.html

The vast majority of cancer patients who go into “spontaneous remission” made massive changes in their diet after being diagnosed with cancer.

  • “A study was done on 200 cancer patients who had experienced “spontaneous remission.” Doctors call these remissions “miracles.” They're NOT miracles. Here's how they did it. Eighty seven percent of them fundamentally changed their diets – mostly to vegetarian. All of the 200 made changes in their lives including nutritional supplementation and detoxification techniques. What this and other studies are telling us is that cancer can be cured by fundamentally changing the chemistry that created it.”

    Raymond Francis (http://www.aidsinfobbs.org/articles/quilty/q02/732)

Here is another interesting quote:

  • “A study of four hundred cancer cases that went into spontaneous remission revealed cures which had little in common. Some people drank grape juice or swallowed massive doses of vitamin C; others prayed, took herbal remedies, or simply cheered themselves on. These very diverse patients did have one thing in common, though. At a certain point in their disease, they suddenly knew, with complete certainty, that they were going to get better as if the disease were merely a mirage, and the patient suddenly passed beyond it into a space where fear and despair and all sickness were nonexistent.”
  • http://www.paksearch.com/globe/1999/April/HIGHER.html

While it is true that many people go into spontaneous remission by dramatically changing their diet and attitude, imagine what would happen if newly diagnosed cancer patients were told:
1) What foods contained the most cancer-killing nutrients,
2) What foods contained the best nutrients to build the immune system,
3) What foods feed cancer cells and thus cause cancer to grow faster (these are foods to avoid),
4) The best supplements to kill cancer cells and build the immune system, and they were told
5) What things in a person's life can damage a natural treatment plan (e.g. chlorine in tap water)?

For example, changing to a vegan diet would not necessarily cure cancer, but going on a selective vegan diet and eating only the vegetables and fruits known to contain large amounts of cancer killing nutrients, and avoiding foods that feed the cancer, and avoiding foods that interfere with the effectiveness of the cancer-fighting foods, would yield a much higher cure rate than any orthodox treatment, even better than Vitamin C therapy. But alternative medicine can do much better than even this selective vegan protocol.
