The Number One Killer

In Articles by admin0 Comments

Nothing stops a conversation as quickly as the mention of the word “cancer”. The thing is, there are so many myths and misperceptions about cancer out there.

Why fear cancer?

Most times, people focus on the fear of cancer more than dealing with the cancer itself and with good reason.

They believe that there is little they can do to prevent it. They put developing cancer down to hereditary factors or sheer bad luck.

As a cancer coach, I find a large proportion of people diagnosed with cancer have very little idea about how much poor lifestyle and nutrition contribute towards their condition, regardless of whether they are from a First or Third World country.

Based on current trends, cancer will be the No. 1 killer by 2020.

Most cancers are preventable with a reasonable balance in nutrition and lifestyle.

What is cancer?

  • Cancer starts with a single rogue cell. Human beings are made up of 100 trillion cells.
  • Propagation of cancer cells takes a long time in terms of decades. A cancerous tumor is not an instant phenomenon, it is a result of a long process that takes many years to form.
  • The slowness in propagation of cancer cells gives us an opportunity to intervene to block the rouge cell from turning into a mature cancer cell.

In general, one-third of all cancer patients are smokers so if you are a non-smoker, the risk of cancer is already reduced by about 33 per cent. Another third of cancer patients are due to poor nutritional and lifestyle habits. Another about 15 per cent of cancer patients can be due to some hereditary factors but more likely due to family influences towards common lifestyle choices.

As far back as 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the National Cancer Act making the conquest of cancer a national goal and set the stage for the formation of the National Cancer Institute. In 1971, US President Richard Nixon declared war on cancer, strengthening the Act of 1937 with a mandatory billion dollar budget over a three-year period.

Just think of the exponential explosion of innovations within other technology areas. Your mobile phone is now more powerful than the largest supercomputers of that time. One would think that after more than half a century of fervent research and billions of ringgit spent, we would  have this fearful metabolic condition under control.

Alas, the war on cancer has been a MASSIVE failure so far, and the reasons for this failure is the faulty approach of slash, burn and poison of the patient’s body cells. Oncologists of today would argue otherwise, that the new and highly expensive drugs of today show better promise. Yes, after all this while, they are still promising rather than implementing the time-tested option of building wellness.

People who face a fearful health condition such as cancer will try just about anything to survive. The brutal combination of fear and bullying by the current medical establishment to submit to “standard care” is part of the foundation that keeps a trillion dollar cancer industry going, because standard approved care is not cheap. The average cost per patient, from diagnosis to death is anything from RM350,000 to RM1 million or even more.

Cancer can basically be viewed as cell growth that is out of homeostasis (out of control). The conventional medical approach is to “search and destroy” cancer cells using surgery, radiation and extremely potent toxic chemicals. And for all the boasting about new and improved drugs, current cancer treatments are actually rather archaic, and nothing more than the treatment of symptoms using extremely expensive and toxic means which are also often highly experimental.

A standard definition of cancer cure is that as long as the cancer is killed before the patient dies, the treatment is largely heralded as a success. Lifespan is considered but health span is ignored. Most of the conventional treatments still considered standard care were created during a time when knowledge of cancer was minimal. This includes ignoring the importance of maintaining immune systems with optimal nutrition.

For example, chemotherapy was invented in 1960, when poison gas was found to kill cancerous tumours in one mouse. As it turns out, they were not quite able to replicate the success on other mice, but for some reason, for that initial one, it seemed to work quite well.

This “fluke” of an experiment was the original foundation of chemotherapy. When it became clear that chemo wasn’t all that effective on its own, radiation was added, and now chemotherapy in conjunction with radiation is the norm for treating many types of cancer.

Many of the chemotherapy drugs have now been found to actually cause cancer. Such is the case with one blockbuster breast cancer drug. It 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 again increase your risk of breast cancer.

Rather than removing it from the market, patients are simply told that uterine cancer can be successfully treated with a hysterectomy!

The entire cancer industry is built on purging cancer cells from your body by toxic means, and they will not remove a drug simply because it’s dangerous, because there really isn’t such a thing as “too dangerous“ when you’re dealing with cancer.

The price is your health, even if you survive the treatment, which many do not. By and large, people who get chemo die around the same time as those who do nothing. The main difference is that those who get the standard care suffer far more than those who get no toxic treatment at all.

The question is: Is this the only option available? The key is to get more information so you can make better informed decisions as most of these decisions are irreversible. Time is of essence and there is typically no second chance.
