Cancer Research UK Dinner
Recently I attended a dinner put on by Cancer Research UK for supporters, having been invited by a friend, and it got me thinking.
I learnt the following from Cancer Research UK’s CEO, Sir Harpul Kumar (he was knighted in 2016), with some added info from their website:
- 1 in 2 people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime
- 50% of people receiving treatment will survive cancer for 10 or more years
- Cancers that may not actually be that bad and could be left alone are not detectable, so these cancers are also treated the same as others
I guess my view of the cancer industry has mellowed a little since I wrote quite a critical blog post about Cancer Research UK a while back – read that post on this page plus other cancer-related posts. Mellowed, because I do see how many well-meaning scientists and charitably-minded people there are who put so much effort into ‘beating cancer’. -Yet it isn’t such individuals who are the ones I have a beef with but the system that is the issue, and which few individuals who are paid by the ‘cancer industry’ as you could call it, are courageous enough to question. On this note it was interesting to see a short Cancer Research UK video shown at the end of this dinner in which cancer was called ‘the enemy’ which had to be ‘fought’. I don’t really agree with this approach to cancer – it is not a 5-legged monster that is ‘out to get us’ and must be battled with like in a war. This in fact is totally a topsy turvy view because if you are aware of how powerful our focus, intention and thoughts are – the law of attraction – then you will know that what we focus on comes about. So if we focus on a fight, we’ll get a fight. If we focus on disease we’re likely to get more illness. If on the other hand we focus on wellness we’ve a much better chance of getting well. So all the focus on cancer is to me, very misplaced. Someone who holds a similar view is Anita Moorjani who became cured of cancer in just 5 weeks after being given hours to live and experiencing a Near Death Experience (NDE) in which she realized the cause of her cancer was because she didn’t love herself. Watch her talk about what happened here.
But right now in mainstream medicine we are very far as yet from doctors emphasizing we must learn to love ourselves to cure cancer, so back to 3D reality…
Here’s what two Nobel Laureates have said about the cancer industry…
“The National Cancer Program is a bunch of sh*t.” – Dr James Watson, 1975. Discoverer of DNS, Nobel Laureate
“Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud.” – Dr Linus Pauling, 1986, Nobel Laureate
Strong words, for sure.
My ‘beefs’ with the cancer industry
Here are some of my ‘beefs’ with the cancer industry.
Poor success rate despite the $ billions put into research
So much money, effort and time has been put into ‘beating cancer’ and the best that can now be offered is 10+ years’ survival for the 50% of us who will get cancer, not to mention all the terrible side effects and other diseases, including other types of cancer you could get as a result.
One would think that with so much spent on researching and treating cancer we would be much further ahead than we are. After all, in other areas there have been so many innovations – look at technology for example, mobile phones are so far advanced in such a short space of time. But with cancer we have so far to go.
The cancer industry is locked into purging cancer
The cancer industry is built around purging – cutting out, burning or poisoning – cancer. All the research, drugs, machines, doctors and surgeons – there are so many – are devoted to simply getting rid of the symptoms of cancer rather than dealing with causes. This is a key point. For the industry to embrace a different kind of treatment that does not need all the purging treatments, expertise, machines and drugs would mean too great a financial loss for too many. But isn’t it better to have the help the body heal itself without purging wherever possible? Here’s a trailer for a documentary ‘Cut, Poison, Burn’.
Cut Poison Burn documentary – trailer
The cancer industry is too prosperous to allow a cure
As such the cancer industry is just too prosperous to allow a cure. In the US alone more than $6 billion is spent on cancer research and the projected medical costs of cancer care is $173 billion by 2020 (a 39% increase since 2014). It’s simple – the current cancer business prospers while treating cancer, and therefore cannot afford to cure it. Even medical practitioners are open about this – last week I read an interview with a woman who had managed to heal herself of cancer through natural / alternative routes and when she asked her radiologist as she was having a check-up whether a cure would be found soon, the response was ‘of course not honey, cancer is too big business.’ This industry is about wealth, not health.
Cancer research charities are probably not innocent
Cancer research charities and not-for-profits are geared up for receiving as much financial support as they can. Although they are not-profits I imagine each year their goal is to increase their funding, not have it decreased. Their largest support is most likely not from individuals but from the deep pockets of big corporations and industries such as big pharma – and as a result a vested financial interest in the cancer business will be a given. Whilst such organisations are supported by big corporations there will be no real incentive to find a cure, since if a cheap enough cure was found for cancer then cancer research charities would not receive the funding and would no longer need to exist in the big way that they do.
Chemotherapy and radiation are shockingly toxic and can cause other cancers
Chemotherapy and radiation are way too toxic to call them treatments in the truest sense. Some call them primitive treatments since they primarily seek to cut, poison or burn out the lump or bump. The list of problems you can get as a results of cancer drug treatments are long and even include cancer. There is a drug for all the side effects. It is so much better not to take drugs, let alone ones that can give you yet more health problems. Here are some side effects depending on what drugs you are given:
- Memory loss
- Heart failure
- Mouth sores
- Nerve damage
- Inability to fight infections
- Kidney damage
- Hearing damage
- Radiation necrosis (brain hardening)
- Fluid in the ears
- Spinal growth deficit
- Possible loss of IQ
- Difficulty with focused thinking (sometimes called chemo brain)
- Early menopause
- Heart problems
- Reduced lung capacity
- Kidney and urinary problems
- Nerve problems such as numbness and tingling
- Bone and joint problems
- Muscle weakness
- Secondary cancers
And there are probably some other side effects not on the list above. The fact that these treatments can even cause other diseases and even cancers is a shocking oxymoron surely – so you’ll get rid of my cancer but later I’ll die of another disease caused by the treatment you gave me including another type of cancer – yet you’ll still claim I survived the original cancer? It makes no good sense. In one of the videos below you will see how a baby who had cancer had as the cause on his Certificate of Death: ‘Chronic toxicity of chemotherapy.’ Truly it beggars belief – that chemo is the treatment given to cancer patients yet it can also cause their death. Sometimes words just fail.
For example, I have read that a major drug for breast cancer is a drug called Tamoxifen. According to a study published in the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer, the treatment of breast cancer with tamoxifen results in an increased risk of uterine cancer incidence and mortality. So Tamoxifen does reduce breast cancer, but it more than doubles your risk of uterine cancer. And if you take it for more than five years, you are again increasing your risk of getting breast cancer again. What they should do is remove Tamoxifen from the market but instead they apparently tell patients that uterine cancer can be successfully treated by performing a hysterectomy. Pharmaceutical companies frankly have a lot to answer for.
Everyone’s decision to opt for conventional treatment is of course to be respected
Of course I do understand and do not judge people who go for chemo and/or radiation treatment. Everyone’s decision is highly difficult and personal to them and I respect that free choice. If you are told by a doctor that you have months or very little time to live and you feel conventional treatment is going to prolong your life somewhat or for whatever reasons you opt for it, then who is to judge that choice? This post isn’t about saying don’t go for conventional treatments, it’s about opening up the conversation beyond such treatments as to other choices there are for helping your body to heal.
Alternative treatments and approaches are just not embraced
There is not enough research into kinder and natural treatments for cancer such as cannabis oil, oxygenation, balancing the pH level, the Budwig diet (flaxseed oil and cottage cheese), broccoli, vitamins/herbs and minerals, dichloroacetic acid, known as DCA and more, plus Dr Burzynski’s amazing discoveries and successes with antineoplastons (see below). Its patents that make money, and if something can’t be patented because it’s a natural product, or if it’s not going to be hugely profitable then it will never get approved by the likes of the FDA / government as an approved cancer treatment.
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski has spent the last 35 years developing and successfully treating cancer patients suffering with some of the most lethal forms of cancer at his clinic in Houston, Texas. He is a medical doctor and PhD biochemist who won the largest legal battle against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in American history. In the 1970s, he made a remarkable discovery that could have changed the face of cancer treatment forever were it not for the greed of the medical and pharmaceutical industry who unscrupulously work to maintain the status quo at any cost. He discovered that people with cancer lacked a certain peptide, while those who were cancer-free had a plentiful supply of it. Dr Burzynski calls this the theory of the “second immune system in our body.”
His non-toxic, gene-targeted cancer medicine also called antineoplastons could have helped save millions of lives over the last two decades had his discovery not been suppressed by the US government. Antineoplastons have been shown to effectively help cure some of the most “incurable” forms of terminal cancer. The motto of Dr Burzynski’s Houston-based clinic is ‘First, do no harm‘ – a statement by the great Greek physician Hippocrates. The treatment uses antineoplastons, peptides and derivatives of amino acids that act as molecular and genetic switches. They turn off the genes that cause cancer, oncogenes, and activate chemo suppressor genes; the genes that fight cancer. The treatments are completely non-toxic (‘First do no harm‘, remember) , and there are virtually no side effects at all. Best of all, his results show that once the cancer is gone, the rate of recurrence is almost none. As a result Dr. Burzynski has patients who have survived with “incurable” cancers for over 20 years. You can hear about some of these cases in the film, Burzynski, the Movie, which you can watch in its entirety below.
As for success rates these speak for themselves. Clinical trial data shows that radiation and chemotherapy only leads to just 9% of patients being cancer free at the end of treatment and all have toxic side effects, whereas the antineoplastons treatment leads to a 25% success rate and there are no side effects. As Dr Whittaker says in the film, ‘It was obvious to me that Dr Burzynski had made the most important discovery in cancer treatment – ever. It’s what we had been looking for!’
And as Dr Burzynski says: ‘The good news is that even the worst types of cancers can be cured for good, and the people who survive – they live a normal life, no side effects of the treatments, no symptoms, no sign of tumors, back to life.” Of course he goes on to say they can’t help everyone. But it’s a good start! And one that is way ahead of toxic chemo and radiation treatments.

Some other ‘alternative’ views…
The Cancer Conspiracy Part 1
Cancer Conspiracy Part 2/3 – alternative methods
So what would you do if you got cancer?
We’ve all got to face it – 50% of us are statistically destined to get cancer at some point in our lives. So this question may well be worth putting some thought into – some advance thinking about this issue could serve us well if and when we are faced with whether to have conventional treatment or not.
What would you do if you got cancer?
Here are some of the things I have come across that could be very beneficial for healing from cancer.
Eating largely a vegetable-based diet especially broccoli (shown to have cancer-killing properties, read more here), kale, other greens, tomatoes.
Eating raw foods every day – as much as possible, whilst removing processed foods and sugar almost entirely.
Stopping consuming processed foods, processed fats and oils, and GMO foods.
Balancing your pH level – increasing alkaline foods – here’s how to get my eBook, The Alkaline Diet Guidebook, that gives you a lot of information about why we should maintain an alkaline diet, which foods are alkaline and which are acidic, alkaline snacks, recipes and more. Here’s a list of which are alkaline foods.
Turmeric and black pepper together – found to help fight cancer better than possibly any other herb in the world today. Turmeric contains the powerful cancer-fighting polyphenol curcumin which has the ability to block every stage of cancer development, from cell mutation, to tumor growth, to metastasis. Adding black pepper seems to increase turmeric absorption. Black pepper enhances the bioavailability of Turmeric since one problem with curcumin is its low levels of bioavailability. Most of the curcumin that is ingested gets metabolized before it can get absorbed. Piperine, which is found in black pepper, is said to help make curcumin more bioavailable. There are many, many published studies showing the anti-cancer power of curcumin, but because the pharmaceutical industry hasn’t found a way to make a patentable FDA-approved drug out of it, curcumin is not offered in cancer treatment. So much for evidence – the industry allows and produces just that evidence that can produce patented profitable drugs.
This is a no brainer. Juice kale, cucumber, greens, celery, carrots and many others for a nutrient boost straight to your body. A daily juice is excellent for resetting your body’s nutrient needs. There are juicing ideas in my eBook.
Getting 30 minutes of direct sunlight exposure daily can increase low vitamin D3 levels which can help fight cancer.
Has been said to kill cancer. Many success stories are available to read online.
Many doctors have stated that cancer cells are depleted in oxygen. Here’s some oxygen drops you can use to boost your oxygen levels (click on Product).
Only natural cosmetics, body care products and home cleaning products
Throw out all products with sodium laural sulphate, parabens, pthalates, formaldehyde, polyethylene glycol, parfum and a host of other chemicals proven to be harmful to the body – click here for a list of 20 toxic ingredients in body care products. Try to buy only 100% organic cosmetics. Also throw out as many harsh cleaning products in your cupboards and use natural cleaning agents such as vinegar.
Reduce EMF / wifi
Get rid of the microwave if you haven’t already done that – you will soon get used to using your oven instead. Reduce the number of wifi gadgets and devices you have – for example, get a wired landline phone. Turn off the router at night. Refuse the smart meters energy companies want you to have nowadays.
Supplements and herbs
B17 (apricots have this), garlic, probiotics, spirulina, black cumin oil, vitamin D, Vitamin C are all excellent for health and also have been shown to help cancer sufferers. A herb called astragalus is proving key to helping cancer patients as well as in the prevention of cancer.
Budwig diet or Budwig protocol
Dr Johanna Budwig found that the health of your cells can quickly be reversed by consuming a mixture of cottage cheese (quark), flaxseeds, and flaxseed oil. Cottage cheese is rich in sulfur protein and saturated fats and flaxseed oil is high in electron rich unsaturated fatty acids. When cottage cheese and flax are combined together it makes the fats more soluble and can now easily be absorbed into the cell membrane healing your cells.
Dr. Budwig also discovered this was effective in the treatment of cancer, and also in healing heart disease, diabetes, eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, hormone imbalance, and neurological conditions.
The Budwig protocol success rate has been claimed to be between 80-93% for chronic health conditions according to the Budwig organization.
Dichloroacetic acid, known as DCA
I would look into this and possibly try to get this, as it has had some good results, although I have to do more research on this as yet myself.
A water purifier in the event of especially ill health would be good investment. The water we drink from our taps is not so great!
So to finish up…
Again, just to reiterate for anyone who may be battling with cancer or has someone in their circle of family or friends with cancer, this isn’t about judging anyone’s decision to opt for chemo and/or radiation treatment. Everyone’s decision is to be respected. I had a cousin myself who died just a handful of years ago of liver and pancreatic cancer, the drug therapy didn’t work for him, he died just 6 months after being diagnosed. Another person in my family in India was told that the chemo wasn’t working for her liver cancer, she went into a coma and subsequently died. As mentioned, this post is just to provide some information for your health and well-being regardless of whether one takes conventional treatments.
The whole personal decision about conventional treatments came to the fore of my thinking over Christmas when my Mum was suddenly kept in hospital from Christmas Eve for 3 weeks during which time they removed a tumour from her heart. Thankfully the tumour turned out to be benign, but before she knew that my Mum told us that if it did turn out to be cancer she would not have chemo or radiotherapy. Her reasons were that she had had friends die of cancer who had taken conventional treatments and the last months of their life were very depressing, sad and difficult for them physically. On the other hand we have a family friend who had breast cancer and had some kind of conventional treatment (not sure which), got better, then got uterine cancer which was also dealt with conventionally, and now, 20 years later, she is fine. So the decision is a personal one, but my Mum’s statement got me thinking a lot.
Do share your own views, natural cancer-beating ideas, or experiences in the comments.
To everyone’s good health,
