In 2019, 1,762,450 Americans are expected to receive a diagnosis of cancer. That means many thousands of people will hear the dreaded “C word” from their doctors today. It really doesn’t matter who you are, hearing “You have cancer” is a devastating blow unless you are prepared with solid information before hand. And even then, it is still like being hit by a tractor trailer.
Between 2000 and 2050, the number of new cancer patients diagnosed annually is expected to double. What is going on that medical scientists are seeing such tragedy in human health and feel impotent to do anything about it? We keep hearing that the war on cancer has been lost but why is that? Are we not after all an intelligent species, smart enough to solve the problem of cancer?
Today cancer is the leading cause of death among children and we have every reason to be angry about this. Every reason to look deeply into the entire cancer story before its one of our own children who receives the “C” word. For our children’s sake we need to turn back to the fundamental question of 'What Is Cancer'? Until we find an accurate answer to this question, attempts to reverse this epidemic seems doomed. Is cancer such a miserable disease or are the treatments for it miserable and responsible for most deaths from cancer?
The mainstream medical community shouts out how successful they are in treating cancer. Google death or survival rates. Every page, all thousand of them, say the same thing. It’s good news, no bad news allowed. So get your chemo and radiation treatments is the implication even if both of these treatments increase the chances of reaccurance of cancer and will weaken your heart and immune system.
The reality is that no one who has been recently diagnosed with cancer feels good about it so there is no sense in beating around the bush about the harsh realities of cancer and the treatments doctors use for it. Nearly 90,000 Britons do not know they have got cancer until they arrive at Accident and Emergency wards, by which time only 36 per cent will live longer than a year. One in four British cancer patients are unlikely to live longer than six months after diagnosis. God only knows how many will still be alive after five years. British medical authorities concede they have the worst cancer track record in the western world.
Overall, no matter how much the western medical industrial complex brags about improvements in cancer survival rates (showing a 17 percent decline from 1990 to 2016) the CDC still says about one in three are dying of their cancer. Global cancer deaths are rising: in 1990 5.7 million died from cancer; by 2016 this had increased to 8.9 million.
When patients are diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer, they have only a 1-in-10 chance of survival. In Texas, it is estimated that 14,750 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer and approximately 8,640 will succumb to the disease in 2019,” said Katie Jones, executive director for the American Lung Association in Texas. That’s a death rate of 58 percent. So much for optimism and trust in the methods of modern oncology.
No matter what we read in Google these days there is still the research that says that the overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA. Doctors themselves are turning away from chemotherapy and radiation and are quite excited about Immuno-Oncology, but few people in the world can afford that unless they go for natural Immuno-Oncology.
The Key to Surviving Cancer
They key to surviving cancer is to catch it early. The earlier the better. And what better way of catching it early is to understand the causes and conditions that lead to cancer so we can diagnose it way before our doctors will with their diagnostic tests, which use dangerous levels of cancer forming radiation. The signs and symptoms of cancer can be seen just as easily before cancer arrives than after if we stop long enough to appreciate the multiplicity of causes.
“Early diagnosis can make a huge difference in your chances of surviving cancer,” said Professor Kathy Pritchard-Jones. “Around a quarter of all cancer cases are being diagnosed following presentation in emergency wards and the vast majority of these are already at a late stage, when treatment options are limited and survival is poorer. We need to find ways to diagnose patients earlier.”
The price we pay is high for medical ignorance in terms of cancer. Oncologists are treating cancer too late in the game, when it’s already established, and often spread and metastasized because they really do not understand cancer and that is why they are so miserable at treating it.
Most doctors understand that once a disease has advanced to a late stage it becomes difficult or often impossible to reverse but they are unwilling to learn anything about the multiple causes of cancer so they can teach patients how to recognize, well in advance, that they are headed to an oncologist’s office. Why wait for oncologists to wake up? Conquering Cancer is an advanced course in the multidimensional nature of cancer and what to do to prevent, treat it or are are heading in that direction.
Despite advances in the early detection of cancer, most malignancies are still diagnosed and treated at advanced stages, with a limited range of therapeutic options and poor overall survival. Simultaneously, cancer treatment costs are escalating, from $125 billion annually in the US in 2010 to a projected $207 billion by 2020.
Oncologists do not want to acknowledge that their tests and treatments are among the causes of cancer. When was the last time your doctor recommended a mammogram or CT scan and told you of the increased risk of cancer because of the test? Each exposure to radiation increase cancer risk.
Another way doctors in general cause cancer has to do with their illness causing attitudes about the sun. Conquering Cancer has an extensive lesson about Vitamin D Deficiency as a Cause of Cancer and Light Deficiency as a Cause of Cancer. When oncologists and dermatologists tell us to stay out of the sun are they causing cancer when they think they are helping their patients avoid cancer. Which one is it?
Cancer is not an enemy invader, an alien from genetic hell that is something terrible that happens to an intrinsically healthy body. Many people will say they thought they were healthy up until they received their cancer diagnosis. However, that’s almost impossible. Cancer does not manifest out of the blue, its part of a long process that takes us down a black hole that leads to cancer.
The whole point of understanding the universe of causes of cancer is to either avoid cancer or treat it effectively. It is more important to diagnose the causes than the cancer itself for if we treat only the cancer, and not the causes, even if we wipe cancer out with the most aggressive treatments it can return. Treatments are more effective if the causes are addressed.
We can establish many causes of unhealthy cellular and bodily conditions that can lead to cancer yet there is one cause or characteristic of cancer that all of the other causes feed, and that is hypoxia, oxygen starvation, which forces cells to ferment and become cancerous,
Low oxygen levels in a cell interrupts
the activity of oxidative phosphorylation.
There are many causes of low oxygen delivery to the cells and many methods to prevent hypoxia in cells. We can also carpet bomb our bodies with oxygen. Using oxygen ‘properly,’ as chemo, represents a sea change in cancer treatment. Oncology blinds itself to what cancer is with its obsession on genetics, which they themselves do not really believe is the exclusive cause of cancer. Instead of just trying to massacre the evil cells and damaging and killing healthy cells in the process we can do many things including facilitating the delivery of oxygen into cancer and normal cells as a main course of treatment.
