Chemotherapy doesn’t ‘cure’ cancer shock! False hopes dampened

Mainstream medical researchers are finally starting to admit that toxic chemotherapy drugs do absolutely nothing to cure cancer, and often cause cancer patients to die much more quickly than they otherwise would apart from getting the so-called “treatment.” Dr. Deborah Schrag from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and her colleagues let the cat out of the bag in a recent study they published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), which revealed that most cancer patients have no idea that their disease will never be cured as a result of chemotherapy.

According to the study’s findings, as many as 69 percent of terminally ill lung cancer patients and 81 percent of terminally ill colorectal patients have no idea that chemotherapy drugs are fully incapable of curing their cancers. Though they are said to potentially help some cancer patients live slightly longer lives, chemotherapy drugs admittedly do not stop the growth or spread of cancer cells and tumors, which means many of the patients who opt for the treatment are not being told the full truth about its major shortcomings.

“There is a lot of harm in not having patients understand the finality of the disease,” said Dr. Hossein Borghaei, an oncologist from the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, who was not involved in the research. “[Chemotherapy drugs] are very powerful, they have a lot of side effects, the chemotherapy is going to harm you more than it helps you, and it can actually shorten your life. All of this should be taken into account.”

Dr. Borghaei’s statements are chilling because they affirm what we have been saying here at Natural News for quite some time — that chemotherapy is nothing but a sham “treatment” that puts cancer patients through needless pain and suffering while making the cancer industry rich. And perhaps the most disturbing part about this now-normalized form of medical quackery is that oncologists typically fail to disclose to their patients the fact that chemotherapy does not even cure cancer, which gives them false hope.

UK cancer charity, CANCERactive, has also covered several stories recently on the subject of chemotherapy – all can be found in Cancer Watch (http://www.canceractive.com/cancer-active-page-link.aspx?n=2319&Title=Latest Cancer Research).

For example:

1. Chemotherapy can actually cause cancers to strengthen and return in the longer run.
2. Since Chemotherapy doesn’t kill off the cancer stem cells, the cancer will return.
3. Some bioactive natural compounds can kill off cancer stem cells.
4. Australian and American research studies show an effect in just 2% of patients since chemotherapy was regularly introduced.
5. the term ‘cancer management’ is rapidly replacing terms like ‘life-saving drugs’ and ‘cancer cure’ because pharmaceutical companies actually know that the truth is, chemotherapy doesn’t cure.

Both Natural News in America and CANCERactive in the UK regularly cover research on the Junk Science behind chemotherapy, which (for example) despite claims that new biologics are the weapons of choice, is still given to virtually every person with cancer at the present time.

Breast Chemotherapy shown to cause brain damage, again

We have run previous studies in Cancer Watch showing this same finding, so this study on breast cancer published in Archives of Neurology comes as no real surprise. In this study, researchers from Stamford University Medical School followed 25 breast cancer patients who had had chemotherapy treatment – comparing them with 19 breast cancer patients who had surgery and other treatments and 18 healthy women.

All were asked to solve problems, sort cards and other mental tasks. Their brains were simultaneously monitored using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The 25 who had had chemo made more errors in the problems and the MRI scans showed reduced activity in areas of the brain responsible for working memory, cognitive control, monitoring and planning. This gives credence to the many women who have complained to their doctors in the past about ´foggy thinking´ after chemo.

The lead researcher Shelli Kesler said: ´This is a huge validation for these women who are telling their doctors ´something is wrong with me.´

Doctors have hitherto been quite dismissive when patients have complained of foggy thinking – in extreme cases there has been loss of vision, hearing and even dementia. Kesler added: ´This shows that when a patient reports she is struggling with these types of problems, there´s a good chance there has been a brain change.´

Further study asks ‘Does prostate surgery do more harm than good?’

 

A new study has confirmed the results of one presented in Cancer Watch a few months ago, suggesting that prostate surgery was a complete waste of time.

This second study (New England Journal of Medicine) was led by Dr.Timothy Wilt of the University of Minnesota School of Medicine. It followed 731 men diagnosed with prostate cancer for ten years. Some had surgery, some did nothing.

 At the end of the ten years 47 per cent of the ‘surgery’ men died during the study compared with 50 per cent of those having nothing. This difference is not deemed statistically significant.

 However, importantly, men who choose to do nothing are only half as likely to suffer from urinary incontinence or erectile dysfunction.

 “We think our results apply to the vast majority of men diagnosed with prostate cancer today,” said Dr. Wilt to the Chicago Tribune.

 Importantly, only 3 per cent of men diagnosed with prostate cancer actually died from it. Whether they had had surgery or not! The rest died of other causes!

When considering these findings men have to consider the accuracy of the screening PSA test too. Increasing numbers of men have had treatment when they did not even have the disease.

Post No.13: Making a real difference

Becky Simpson

I have had cancer for six years.

The most important thing I’ve learned is the most vulnerable patient is the ignorant patient; and that is why CANCERactive is the best cancer charity there is. The charity understands this.

Forget women running around in pink bras raising even more money for charities who frankly still haven’t come up with any answers. CANCERactive empowers the patient. I recommend it, and the Rainbow Diet, to every cancer patient I meet.

I regularly run half-marathons and am very healthy and active. This is in no small part because of what I have learned from the CANCERactive website.

The Rainbow Diet is by far the most sustainable and well researched cancer diet out there and believe me I have tried many!!!

The only way to give yourself the best chance of survival and quality of life is through knowledge.

For example, sadly Doctors don’t always make the right choices and to know something about the drugs you are being given is crucial. CANCERactive tells you, warts and all.

I am also a big fan of so called ‘complementary and alternative medicine’ but you need to know the pit falls. Again, CANCERactive tells you the truth – when there’s research and when there isn’t.

Knowledge about cancer is changing everyday all over the world – it is wonderful, via the charity’s research centre ‘Cancer Watch’, to know about those changes and the latest developments. They have told us things that appeared as front page headlines or in on other charities’ websites only several years later.

Chris Woollams and his team dedicate their lives to helping cancer patients in a way no other charity does and, to me, he is a modern day hero.
