Amazing Cancer Therapy Wipes Out Prostate and Bone Cancer

Published on August 15, 2011

Vernon Johnson mixing sodium bicarbonate with molasses The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our body. Chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions. In other words, over-acidity interferes with life itself. It is at the root of cancer.

Well I am delighted every time I see anything from Vernon Johnson who managed to get his urinary pH up to 8.5 for five days and then within two weeks was back at his oncologist’s office for a test, which showed his bones being cleared of his cancer.

“Cancer tried to kill me. After a struggle or two… or three… or four… or more, I said, “No!” Or at least I was hoping for a “No.” I turned to Cesium, but ended up with Baking Soda. My goal was to change my pH quickly. I knew little or next to nothing what pH, Alkaline or Acidic meant. Happily I found out,” wrote Vernon Johnson.

Vernon is alive and well and that is all that really matters. He is a cancer survivor and did not spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to become one.

pH Medicine

Everyone should buy some pH strips and become familiar with the invisible pH side of their lives and they should not wait until they get cancer to do so. The time to start treating cancer the natural way begins right now, not after one has allowed oncologists to poison them with chemo and radiation therapies and then one has to struggle against their deadly toxic effects.

Our body’s pH controls the activity of every metabolic function happening in our body. pH is behind the body’s electrical system and intracellular activity as well as the way our bodies utilize enzymes, minerals, and vitamins.

You have the power to open the door for a better health and understanding of your body! Here is the Key

I wrote in my Sodium Bicarbonate book Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment that sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is the time honored method to “speed up” the return of the body’s bicarbonate levels to normal. Sodium bicarbonate happens to be one of our most useful medicines treating as it does the basic acid-alkaline axis of human physiology. Sodium bicarbonate is a “nothing-to-lose-everything-to-gain” treatment for cancer as well as the general acid conditions behind a host of modern diseases.

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) lives up to the image on the Arm & Hammer’s box, it is the ultimate heavy weight workhorse medicine that every healthcare professional and parent should be knowledgeable about and be using routinely.

Cancer cells have a lower pH than surrounding tissues.

Oncologists do understand that bicarbonate is necessary to protect their patients from the toxicity and harm done by highly toxic chemicals used in chemotherapy. They also know it is of extraordinary help to patients receiving radiation treatments as it protects the kidneys and other tissues of the body from radioactive damages. So does cannabinoids.

Oral NaHCO3 selectively increased the pH of tumors and reduced the formation of spontaneous metastases in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer. NaHCO3 therapy also reduced the rate of lymph node involvement and significantly reduced the formation of hepatic metastases. Acid pH was shown to increase the release of active cathepsin B, an important matrix-remodeling protease.

There has been work going on at the University of Arizona using bicarbonate (baking soda) as a potential treatment for cancer. Robert J. Gillies and his colleagues have demonstrated that pre-treatment of mice with sodium bicarbonate results in the alkalinization of the area around tumors (Raghunand 2003). This type of treatment has been found to “enhance the anti-tumor activity” of other anticancer drugs. This is very similar to the recently published research involving injecting O2 directly into tumors and showing such direct administration of oxygen also facilitated the action of chemotherapy.

This year these same researchers reported that bicarbonate increases tumor pH (i.e., makes it more alkaline) and also inhibits spontaneous metastases (Robey 2009). They showed that oral sodium bicarbonate increased the pH of tumors and also reduced the formation of spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer. It also reduced the rate of lymph node involvement.

Utilizing sodium bicarbonate when dealing with cancer does not depend on the Simoncini theory that cancer is a fungus but it sure helps to understand how fungus infections are commonly involved with cancer. I really do not think Simoncini means that cancer is caused by a fungus. What he is really saying is that it is a fungus or it is accompanied by fungus and yeast.

It really does not matter what we believe, certain substances like sodium bicarbonate have a strong and undeniable effect on human physiology that does not depend on our belief systems. There is nothing psychosomatic about bicarbonate; it does not qualify as a placebo and only fools refuse to recognize its importance in general medicine, pediatrics and oncology. There is also potassium bicarbonate, also used as a nutritional medicine and magnesium bicarbonate in the oceans but not available anywhere in solid crystal form. Some of the best products have these minerals with calcium added.

Special Note: In Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment, it is stressed that baking soda should not be considered a standalone cancer treatment. It should be used in conjunction with a full protocol.

Soon I will be publishing a video book and a chapter laying out my entire protocol that I teach people how to use in my consultations. The practical hands on information is simple enough to teach in an hour and that is in great part why it offers a revolution in health and medical care.

Though one cannot teach a person about Chinese medicine without a strong commitment to learn it, one can teach a nurse in an hour or two how to use acupuncture needles, especially that Japanese type which uses insertion tubes. The needling part is astonishingly easy though understanding what one is doing is something else.

I have written many books on medicine and will soon come out with the second edition of my cancer book, which is now four years old.

In the case of my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol lay people, without any medical training, can learn how to treat themselves. It is actually very easy to practice emergency room medicine at home using oral and transdermal means instead of injections and IVs. One can also do chemotherapy at home without an oncologist as long as its natural chemo. Most cancer doctors only like to play with poison and I have a lot to say about that in a coming essay about “hot chemotherapy baths,” the fast rising and scientifically unproven “fad” in cancer treatments.

Healthcare practitioners and physicians will gain a new respect when they themselves know, practice and teach people what they can do for themselves at home both before they come to our offices and clinics and certainly when they leave and go back home. We need to empower people to be healthy and take part in recovering from the diseases they fall victim to.

    Please can you tell me while on the sodium bicarb protocol for cancer, what food should one be eating throughout the treatment?



  • Deb K

    Why is there no discussion about the death of Vernon Johnston on June 14, 2014? Did he died of cancer or something else? RIP Mr. Johnston.

    • Guest

      That was a different Vernon Johnston, in his 90’s.

      • Deb K

        No it wasn’t. His friend on Facebook stated Vernon died from his cancer.

  • ravi kiamr

    sir my mother in india she was suffering bone cancer we are poor family can u suggest and guide what to do? and how to do is it really solve for bone cancer of making baking soda and molasses sir plz help meee and reply ……….for my ?

    • bobbitchen

      Just wondering if you found a good protocol as my mother is facing the same thing plus a spot on her liver. It seems that over here you not only have to fight the Federal Death Agency but also the unwillingness of anyone to simply put out a recipe paper on the different type of treatments for a given cancer. It’s rough being poor, but I will pray for your Mother.

  • Sangeeta

    Hi, I’m a stage IIIc ovarian cancer patient 33 years, I have had 2 relapses in the past..currently my tumor marker levels have risen again. I have started Vernon’s baking soda protocol. Today is my 11th day but my ph level has only once risen too 8. it always fluctuated between 7.2 to 7.8.
    I have tried 3 tsp twice a day but still the PH remains the same. I believe that we need to maintain a PH of 8 to 8.5 for 5 days to be able to kill the cancer cells. Look forward to your revert eargerly.
    How can i increase my PH further.

    • ravi kiamr

      madam sangeeta is it working for bone cancer

  • Lina

    Live vegetable juices feed your body and healed The Juice Man, Jack LeLanne of cancer
    And also my sister inlaw of breast cancer in 1990’s she still with us. So this could be done plus bicarbonate.

    • Snehal Katke

      Hi lina can you please specify the routine of juice protocol

  • Princess

    My husband is diagnosed with prostate cancer and we purchased the Vernon’s dance with cancer and my husband did 2 protocol of BS and BM and his PSA level never went down.we are very discouraged and now my husband is planning to go for removal of prostate glands with cancer.why it doesn’t work on my husband this protocol that worked on Vernon?His Ph level stayed 8.5 for more that 8 days at a time in both of protocol period.Can anyone help us?Thank you.

    • Hi Princess,

      Dr. Sircus’ protocol for cancers attempts to attack the cancer from a number of different vantage points and with a number of different treatments that together have a much greater chance of killing off cancerous cells than one type of treatment alone might have.
      In both Vernon Johnson’s method and in Dr. Sircus protocols breathing techniques for increasing oxygenation are used, and Dr. Sircus highly recommends hi doses of selenium and iodine and magnesium chloride used transdermally as well as many other treatment methods and supplements.. You can see the protocol of Dr. Sircus at:
      Each person will be different in their response which is why Dr. Sircus takes the approach of tackling cancer with as much as you can to eliminate it and does not rely on only one treatment.

      • Princess

        Thank you very much Claudia for your prompt reply.Today I was told by naturopath doctor to not give my husband selenium,because it causes acidity in the body..So I stopped now.Thank you very much for your time and willingness to help others.

    • lawman

      just found this site–tried the baking soda order several yrs ago and it did nothing for me–I am sure it did not hurt me–I found a place in asia that stopped my cancer growth in 30 days after I started on their products–and it has now been over 16 yrs–last psa was 1.1 and I am now age 76.

      • sorgfelt

        Please let us know which place this is.

      • cancerfree

        What the name of the products and where in Asia?

  • SteveGood

    Join what discussion? All the posts are from years ago.and still no miracle cure announced.using bi carb and honey.

  • SteveGood

    Yep another miracle cancer cure. If it’s this easy why don’t they shut down all the medical facilities across the world and feed sick patients bi carb and honey? Or maybe M and Ms I have a spread after prostate removal to my left hip area. It’s going to need radiotherapy not bi-carb. Get real if this worked I would wipe it out and tell the Professor of oncology to get on his bike and leave town.

  • roly

    i Wonder if you use some vitamine and what kind you use with baking soda and molasse

  • sadath

    sir it will be privilege and i will always pray for you my father suffering with prostate cancer and spread in bones am not much rich to go for higher treatment if you can suggest me how should i treat him with baking soda and what quantity i should mix up with what i shall be highly thankful to you and always pray for you anxiously awaiting for your reply

    • Dear Sadath,

      You can find these answers in Dr. Sircus’ ebooks on sodium bicarbonate and in the book Treatment Essentials. Both are reasonably priced and can be obtained from the site below:

      If you still need more guidance you can get a consultation with Dr. Sircus where you can speak with him via skype …no need to travel to his location in Brazil, and he will be able to direct you according to your father’s specific needs.

      Cost is one of the reasons Dr. Sircus has provided so much in his books and consultations. It is much cheaper than the amounts charged by the allopathic medicine doctors.
      Wishing you and your father the best.

    Dr. Simoncini website:

  • grumpy bear

    Simoncini never used any sugars with sod-bicarb & only injected sod-bicarb into tumors of a specific size & type. Quoting from an interview regards adding any sugars as so-called bait for cancer cells,an urban myth gone viral,he stated the users are “idiots”. Users are reminded that a ‘cure’ is only evident upon autopsy. Remission yes,but not cure. Sodium bicarb is useful,my point here is the addition of experimental substances,specifically sugars.

  • Luis

    Doctor I would like to know more about this cancer treatment my dad was diagnose of prostate cancer and like 2 weeks he wheat and took the test so he can know how his levels are doing they told him that the cancer spread out truu his spinal and few part of his bones I would like to know if this is a good treatment and if is possible to cure him plzzzz I would like to hear from u sooon

  • Hi
    Wondering if I should submerge my mom in the baking soda, magnesium salt and Himalayan salt bath to fight Pancreatic Cancer. The doc in Italy says you have to inject it close to the site. Do you think drinking it will do it, or the bath or both??? In a rush, as they said she was a gonner. I plan to also have her do Nagelia Sativa, Graviola, Hemp Oil, Tumeric. And Rife machine if I can figure out which is the real deal, lots claim, few deliver. This last one I might not be able to do due to lack of $$$$. I myself am bed ridden so this is much effort, but I do not want her to die. Thank you for your good works. Blessed be, and Goddess bless you and yours.

  • Michael


    A last question regarding ‘too much bicarbonate’.

    Dr Young’s writings state that it is very possible to be too acidic but not possible to be too alkaline as the body will naturally rid itself of excess alkalinity thru urination, defacation etc. Does Dr Sircus agree with that principle?

    i.e. if I had to take the 2 week protocol 5 times in a row with a 7 day gap in between each one as you suggest, will that be too much alkalinity or how will I know I have over-alkalized? Vernon experienced headaches toward day 10 however he states that this is part of the detoxification process?.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Dr. Sircus states to me that too much of a good thing can cause problems and this includes taking too much sodium bicarbonate. Dr. Young is not talking about getting too alkaline from taking too much bicarbonate is he? He is talking in general and more about getting alkaline from ingested foods which are metabolized differently.

      The problems with taking too much bicarbonate are widely published and included in our chapter on contraindications in the sodium bicarbonate book.

      Dr. Sircus is reviewing the information given by Dr. Young in his online interview about alkalinity.

      The symptoms of over-alkalinization that are described by Dr. Young do not always resolve themselves with return to normal functioning of the body as he states it does, at least not if the ingestion of bicarbonate brought it on. All things in moderation and check your pH daily and pay attention to your own bodies feelings.

      We have always advised that bicarbonate should not be solely relied upon to bring about better alkalinization of the body… should go along with dietary and lifestyle changes and bicarbonate can be used as a jump-start to better alkalinity except in cancer treatments.

    • grumpy bear

      The “Dr.” Gary Young & Robert O.Young are not licensed & rec’d their credentials from a non-accredited mail order,now defunct, diploma mill. Please search “Gary or Robert Young fraud”.

      • This is for Michael,

        Yes, Dr. Young goes to some extremes in what he states. Dr. Sircus doesn’t go that far and understands the problems that can occur with too much bicarbonate use. Not sure what Dr. Young is stating but perhaps he’s talking about the fact that you don’t get too alkaline with dietary means alone?
        You can assure you are not getting to alkaline by checking your pH daily and not allowing it to go over 8 for more that 7-19 days at the most….then it must be stopped so your body can readjust and pH can drop back down so damage doesn’t occur. You must also know the signs and symptoms of too alkaline a system…These are all in the sodium bicarbonate book and if you don’t have it please get it before trying the treatments. Folic acid deficiency can occur, enzyme activity can become paralyzed and it can affect your breathing which will change as the body attempts to get rid of the excess.. and can lead to respiratory arrest. I just saw a new finding and a medication alert from ISMP the institute for Safe Medicine Practices which said it is now advising doctors NOT to give bicarbonate to diabetics in ketoacidosis because there have been too many incidents of brain swelling caused by its use…….be alert always to what the negative signs are no matter what supplement or drug you are taking!!!! Always stop or cut back on dosing if they occur.
        Learn the signs/symptoms and check your pH daily and pay attention to how you feel. Don’t start too many supplements or medicines at once or you won’t be able to tell which might be causing a problem. Give at least a few days in between starting new things. A week is better if you can afford the time. Take at least a week break between rounds of bicarbonate.
        And that said, there have been people who can take larger amounts of bicarb on a daily basis and have done so all their lives, with no ill effects. We are all different and react differently to what we take!! —– Original Message —–

    Thank you Claudia.

    Is it correct to take a high dose of 2 teaspoons 3 x a day right day 1 to day 10? or should one start (like Vernon) with a low initial dose of 1 teaspoon 2 x a day etc building up to 3 tsp 3 x a day by day 10?


    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Each person is different in how much bicarbonate they will need to raise pH. It is always better to start low and build up… see the reaction of your own body. It is also possible to take too much.

      For more specific guidance you must get a consultation with Dr. Sircus.

  • Michael

    re: Taking the Protocol to knock-out cancer cells
    In Mark’s writings he describes that cancer should be hit hard with a high dosages of the bicarb protocol over a 10 day period in order to get a rapid change in pH to obtain the maximum destructive effect on cancer cells.
    How soon after firstly taking the protocol for 10 days should it be repeated again?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      You need about a week break in taking the bicarbonatge….then you can safely restart again.

  • Kirstie Stetler

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Dr. Sircus is putting together a book on cancer treatment which will include how to use magnesium, sodium bicarbonate and iodine plus other things on his protocol. This will be in addition to the video book. In the meantime , its probably best to arrange a phone consultation to get a protocol specific to your friend’s cancer.

    Marijuana: The Forbidden Cure for Cancer
    There are allot of folks out there being cured of cancer, even terminal cancer with marijuana. Skin Cancer, Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Prostrate Cancer, Brain Cancer, and others are being cured with a natural marijuana medicine. The website below links into research and video on the subject. There is even a film there on how to make the medicine and even dosages. You can avoid having your body poisoned with Chemotherapy and Radiation. The medicine from marijuana is natural. Check it out for yourself.

  • Darrin Hoium

    Ditch the syrup, taking it with bicarbonate defeats the purpose of the bicarbonate because of the sugar.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      I’m afraid that Dr. Tulio Simoncini who is the doctor that discovered the baking soda works on fungus would disagree with you here. He believes that the sugar, because it is food for the cancer, will make the cancer cells attractive to the solution and with bicarbonate on the back of it….the cancer cells will immediately be attacked….thats why he calls the sugar the “Trojan Horse” So if you are treating for a cancer, the sugar (syrup or molasses) is recommended….while its not so necessary if just trying to adjust your pH and health is devoid of cancer.

      • J Bencze

        Dear Claudia,
        Darrin is correct about Simoncini…i’ve got an hour long interview with him on Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory on Sept 28, 2011, and he says the molasses does NOT help the bicarb treat the cancer.
        I do not have a strong opinion either way, but i do follow Dr Shelton’s “Food Combining” principles as much as i can…so it’s safer to take different foods at different times. I would assume that bicarb digests very quickly, so if someone wants to use it first thing in the morning, they would only have to wait 45-60 minutes to take some other food or supplement.
        When a person is sick or weak, digestion uses a lot of energy. Correct Food Combining preserves the energy the body needs to heal.

        • Claudia – IMVA Staff

          Dear J Bencze,

          That’s interesting. Do you have a link to this talk you had with him or do you know why he says only sugar will work? And it was my understanding that the sugar, molasses, maple syrup or whatever was used, was only a trojan horse, a carrier product for the bicarb itself to get directly into the cancer cells/tumor, since the cancer cells seem to eat up the sugars….so it takes bicarb right into the cells. A little added nutrition isn’t going to hurt. It seems here you are saying that no form of sugar is needed together with bicarbonate….and that’s not what I learned from Simoncini when I saw him.

          Dr. Sircus believes that there are other ways to get the bicarbonate into the tumors, besides just IV infusion…..

          Please provide me with a link so I can hear your interview…..Thanks!
          You can post it here or send to my email:

          PS: I attended one of his two day training sessions here in Florida a few years ago, and because I am diabetic and have a special interest in diabetes I questioned him about the effect this added sugar would have on people with diabetes and cancer. His response was very specific in that the diabetes could be controlled by insulin while the sugar did its job and drove the bicarb to the cancer cells….at least for a short while….. perhaps he’s changed his opinion?

        • Dr. Simoncini said not to use maple syrup with baking soda. He never said anything about not using molasses.

      • Honestly speaking it is very diiffcult to state actual survival in individual case.Every patient and disease behave differently biologically.In this case ca. is in early stage and to take therapy is highly advisable cause not many cases get detected in stage 1.Prognosis is good if therapy is followed.

  • Leonardo Marino

    Would be very interesting to have an answer to Nancy question dated August 21.2011.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      That essay of Dr. Sircus’ is no longer on our sites, but it is available on many other sites on the Internet and in the book on Sodium Boicarbonate from IMVA publications…..

      Exerpt from the essay:

      For a more detailed discussion of why this works you will have to see the entire essay in the book.

      • Claudia – IMVA Staff

        Leonardo….here is the excerpt from the sodium bicarbonate book which didn’t print in my previous answer to you: This treatment is a combination of pure, 100% maple syrup and baking soda and was first reported on the Cancer Tutor site. When mixed and heated together, the maple syrup and baking soda bind together. The maple syrup targets cancer cells (which consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells ) and the baking soda which is dragged into the cancer cell by the maple syrup , being very alkaline, forces a rapid shift in pH killing the cell. The actual formula is to mix one part baking soda with three pars (pure, 100%) maple syrup in a small saucepan. stir briskly and heat the mixture for 5 minutes. Take 1 teaspoon daily , is what is suggested by the Cancer Tutor site , but one could probably do this several times a day.

        Dr. Sircus feels molasses is a better choice than maple syrup as it has more nutrients .

        • Leonardo Marino

          Claudia; Thanks to you. Not only for me but for many others persons. Your information is clear and at the time very practical. Thanks to you again.


        • Steve in KC

          Claudia, I dont have access (direct access, as in maple trees in my yard to tap) to maple syrup. However am a beekeeper and do have a nice supply of (as organic as it can be) honey. Will honey work as a substitute for the maple syrup. I know it has tons of nutrients in it beyond what maple syrup holds.
          thanks for your thought


          • Claudia – IMVA Staff


            Sure, what a great natural source you have for honey! Honey is wonderful, has wonderful healing qualities and should serve the same purpose as maple syrup and bicarbonate for cancer treatments. Please let us know how this works……but I am not sure if you will need to heat the mixture or not…with molasses you don’t ….I’ll try to find out and post here again if I find it. Good luck!

          • Steve in KC

            Thanks for your input. That’s wonderful to be able to use the honey instead!
            I mixed up some warm honey with the soda today.By volume, 3 parts honey to 1 part baking soda (arm&hammr) I think its a bit easier to swallow a tsp. of that blend compared to the maple syrup. Either way its a bit testy to take down.
            I may end up hydrating the base with some water and chugging that solution down in stead.
            One thing tho, I did get some reaction between the soda and the honey. Not huge but it did “froth” up a bit. I’m not sure what in the honey caused this reaction…any idea?


          • Claudia – IMVA Staff

            Hi Steve,

            It is the acid in the honey mixing with the bicarbonate causing the frothing. The bicarbonate is a base and the frothing is an indication of the formation of carbon dioxide. The more acid a substance you use to mix with bicarbonate…the more gas production there will be. At least I hope I’m understanding this correctly……do we have any chemists here? :-}

          • Lisbeth Laursen

            Hi Claudia
            Don’t know if you’re stil following 🙂

            Not a chemist – just think it makes sense what you wrote, because sodium bicarbonate (in water) is what one can use as a home test to check the stomach acid level. If there’s a lot or normal level it should course burbing (= CO2) as the stomach acid reacts with the sodium bicarbonate.

          • Hi Lisbeth,

            Yes, I am still here but not as frequently.

            You are very right about doing this home test with sodium bicarbonate…..burping should occur within a few minutes if hydrochloric acid levels are adequate.
            Dr. Sircus describes this in his essay :
            I have learned that its best not to rely on the results of just one test, but to do three days in a row and look at the pattern or average of the results.
            Thanks for writing!

            Many thanks for your reply! 🙂
            I believe too little stomach acid is something often over looked and very important.

    Your bicarbonate therapy is equivalent to that recommended by the oncologist Tullio Simoncini Italian Dr.
    A truly effective therapy.

    thanks for his testimony

      So what are the instructions for soda and syrup??

    Dr Sircus,

    Dr Robert Young has a product called pHour salts that consists of sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium bicarbonates in equal amounts in crystal form. Absolutely awesome product.

    all the money donated goes to the unethical pharmaceutical companies who control all the chemo drugs… so people we shud not be donating to cancer fighting assocaitions..which is all bullshit…

    • Jacksaid

      I shall never give one penny for cancer research.. We hear and read abouthigh school student’s coming up with a cure for cancer.. Then you never hear another
      word. That is because the pharmaceuticals rush to them and give them big money for their information , with them signing a contract to never go forward with any other
      attempts of curing cancer.. THEY ARE BOUGHT OUT…..

    We donate Billions, and Billions of dollars every year for cancer research, and in the last hundred years all the doctors know is surgery, chemo, and radiation. And 2% of the patients
    will survive, but 98% will die, from the cancer, or from the treatment.
    Last week, and many times before, it was on CNN, that they had a big breakthrough, but need more money, and in 5-10 years they will try it on cancer patients, etc.
    Maybe some people will start to think now that all this cancer research thing is just a big scam, Because all these doctors and scientists, and researchers would be smarter, and would come up with something better then chemo, and a 2% success rate, as they may also get cancer, like everyone else, and the 2%- 98% apply for them also.I think all the doctors, scientists and researchers should all go back to school, and learn about all the cancer CURES.
    Cancer for a lot of people is not even a big deal anymore , there or many, dozens of cancer cures, people can choose, and cure cancer themselves.
