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.
Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.
Linus Pauling PhD (the world's only two-time unshared Nobel Prize winner)
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.
There is not one, but many cures for cancer available. But they are all being systematically suppressed by the ACS, the NCI and the major oncology centres. They have too much of an interest in the status quo.
Dr Robert Atkins, M.D.
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.
A solution to cancer would mean the termination of research programs, the obsolescence of skills, the end of dreams of personal glory, triumph over cancer would dry up contributions to self-perpetuating charities….It would mortally threaten the present clinical establishments by rendering obsolete the expensive surgical, radiological and chemotherapeutic treatments in which so much money, training and equipment is invested….The new therapy must be disbelieved, denied, discouraged and disallowed at all costs, regardless of actual testing results, and preferably without any testing at all.
Robert Houston and Gary Null
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.”
Finding a cure for cancer is absolutely contraindicated by the profits of the cancer industry’s chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery cash trough.
Dr Diamond, M.D.
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.
Twenty years from now we will look back at chemotherapy and radiation as [being as] barbaric as using leeches,
Steve Millett, manager of technology forecasts for Battelle
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: fewer 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.
It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
So why is cancer research intentionally headed in the wrong direction? If I were to list the 50 overall most expensive and most profitable 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.
What Causes Cancer
The human genome may go down in history as the biggest white elephant for humanity. It cost a lot and is useless, it does not work, and is so expensive to maintain and grows so big so fast that it will bankrupt the industry as well as entire nations … The scientific establishment has remained firmly wedded to genetic determinism, if only because it is indispensable for business. It is also fuelling the resurgence of eugenics and genetic discrimination, and making even the most unethical uses seem compelling, such as the creation of human embryos to supply cells and tissues for transplant in so-called ‘therapeutic’ human cloning.
Mae-Wan Ho, Institute of Science in Society
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. The 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 ensure 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 websites, 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.
The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as night and day.
Dr. Herbert Ley, former FDA commissioner, 1970
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 Healing of Cancer, by Barry Lynes,
- The Assault on Medical Freedom, by P. Joseph Lisa,
- The Politics of Cancer Revisited, by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D.,
- Rockefeller Medicine Men – Medicine and Capitalism in America, by E. Richard Brown,
- Unhealthy Charities – Hazardous To Your Health and Wealth, by James T. Bennett and Thomas J. DiLorenzo,
- and many, many others.
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.
