The way with that we treat cancer in the Western world is the same way we treat burglars.
If there’s a burglar in your house, you try to get them out prompt, you shoot him, you stab them, you push them out the door and lock it up, and side with relief that he’s gone.
That’s how medicine treats cancer. The idea is that cancer is caused by a rogue sell, like the burger, and what we have to do is kill the rogue cell and all the other rogue cells, and then the cancer will be gone.
So what’s wrong with this picture? What’s wrong with how we treat cancer?
This study explores treating prostate cancer with chemotherapy, but it discusses a lot of other types of chemotherapy and cancers as well. New in fact, it is a very complex study, but as it says at the beginning,
treatment failures exceeding 90% in patients with metastatic carcinomas1
this spills the beans.
Because as it turns out, the question as to whether chemotherapy is even effective or not, is still an open question.
We simply do not have proof or evidence that chemotherapy actually helps patients with cancer survive longer.
in this particular study, they gave mice cancer, and then they did chemotherapy.
Here’s the problem with chemotherapy: chemotherapy is a poison, and the poison is supposed to hurt cancer cells more than the rest of ourselves.
But this model of cancer has already been proven to be incorrect.
This model of cancer is that there are bad cells, cancer cells, and good cells, the rest of our body cells.
And if we can somehow target cancer cells with a “magic bullet”, we can get rid of the cancer and go happily on our way.
But the actual evidence has been quite different. Cancer cells are not that different or any different from our regular cells.
These cells that become cancerous cells, are part of a microenvironment that is conducive of cancer.
One of the most famous researchers in the field, Hans Selyi, calls this the cancer field.
The cancer field is the microenvironment that can exist in your body, if you have a lot of inflammation going on, or are consuming too many of the wrong kinds of foods, or experiencing too much inactivity, or any combination.
The cancer field causes the microenvironment to be one that is friendly to the development of cancer cells.
In this study, they found the problem with chemotherapy is that cancer cells tend to quickly become resistant and even flourish and grow faster with the chemotherapy, then they would have without it.
How can this be?
Chemotherapy cannot be a continuous process.
It has to stop sometimes, and then restart, because otherwise the patient will die.
The chemotherapy will kill the patient if it’s applied continuously.
So they apply the chemotherapy in short bursts, with rest periods that give the body a chance to recover.
Remember, chemotherapy is deadly poison new supposedly it is less poisonous to ourselves that are noncancerous, then it is to our cancerous cells, but it is poison to all cells.
So we need a recovery.
And the rest gives the cancer a time to regroup and get even stronger. And it do
This is the problem with chemotherapy in general.
It doesn’t actually make the “cancer field” any better. It doesn’t actually make the body stronger.
It makes the body weaker, and more likely to cause more cancer.
And it gives the cancer cells a way to multiply an increase.
If you look at the image at the top of this newsletter, you’ll see how chemotherapy messes up healthy prostate cells.
Chemotherapy actually causes cancer
Our results indicate that damage responses in benign cells comprising the tumor microenvironment may directly contribute to enhanced tumor growth kinetics
And there is no way around this.
It’s how it works.
In fact, chemotherapy is not only ineffective in most cases, but it’s probably worse than doing nothing.
I know that if I had cancer, I really would not get chemotherapy. I would try other things.
Of course, there are some great success stories in chemotherapy.
And I’m sure you know people who have had cancer, and had chemotherapy, and got better.
Who knows if they would’ve gotten better, or got worse and died without the chemotherapy?
This study argues very well, that chemotherapy at least with prostate cancer is not only ineffective, but may make the prostate cancer worse. And the study applies to almost ANY cancer.
