Facts about Cancer.
Posted 9/9/12 , edited 9/9/12
I found this article while I was on facebook.Hope this article will prove helpful to you people.
AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY .

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the
cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. < BR>


2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Thanks for the info.
My aunt died yesterday, no one suspected she had cancer in the liver. -Sigh-

Facts, hardly. Some truths in there, mixed with a "healthy" dose of nonsense.

don't believe everything on facebook...I would say that most of that is false. Cancer is simple, it's not complicated. Human cells can multiply about 50 times (hayflick limit), this is due to the telomere shortening. Some animals have greater or lower hayflick limit. Sometimes something occurs and cause some cells to recover the telomere, which means the cells can multiply and never die by them self, immortal cells.
Now try to cure immortality of cells. It's not a normal disease, you need to kill some cells in your body without damaging the whole system which is tightly linked.

edit: Cancer is not cause by what you eat. Because it doesn't affect what is inside your cells. All this crap is fake imo.

First, it's rather arrogant for you to think that everything is known about cancer, or the human body, so much so that you can refute everything stated in the above paragraph.

There is evidence to support much of what was listed above, that certain foods and environmental issues cause cancer, like smoking. Certain cells need to reproduce more often, or more times, like bone marrow, in order to produce important parts of the body, like red blood cells. Every cell in the human body is the same as far as DNA is concerned, what makes them different is where in the body they are located. This location is pretty much what causes a cell in a specific area to be that particular type of cell. I would imagine that there is some correlation between the cell's loss of it's ability to know where it is and cancer.

However, this would require more scientific research, as, last I read up on the subject, we had not quite understood exactly how the body works in that regard.

At any rate, the biggest fallacy in your claim, that cancer is not caused by what you eat, that what you eat doesn't affect what is inside your cells...

where the hell do you think the stuff that is inside your cells come from? 'you are what you eat'.

And needing to kill some cells in your body without damaging the whole system? my god, sounds kinda like white blood cells or t cells or whatever to me!

Following that logic, how is it false to say that strengthening your immune system has ABSOLUTELY no affect on cancer? Show me the study where they PROVED that what you eat has nothing to do with what's inside you. Show me the evidence in scientific studies that shows the correlation between unhealthy eating or living habits and cancer.

My reaction to reading these:
Whoa.

Better now?

sorry to be harsh but you are talking shit, there somethign called aerboic gyloclysis and the warburg principle, cancer feeds on sugar, they use oxygen in glycolysis and it not meant too. for the sugar, it not all sugars, it refined sugars mainly, aka white sugar. it a deadly poison and ti causes inflammation. also for cancer, it linked to inflammation, inflammation is well known to be affected by diet and nutrition, also your shampoo and everything, they are unatural chemicals, do you think they cause no harm, also do you think the pharmaceutical industries want a cure to cancer when they make billions of dollars a year profit, they want to control it symptoms only.

I've no personal gripe against any poster here, and I'm going to assume the best case that everyone is at least somewhat interested in finding the facts about important things, like cancer, and that the first poster indeed sought to inform sincerely. So, personal attacks are to no purpose-- but, neither is leaving misinformation to stand unanswered, as if it's all good and you can just pick what you like to believe.

Like so much of internet lore, that article in the OP contains grains of truth, perhaps enough to sound convincing, mixed with distortions as well as some outright lies, including supposed endorsement by a big name like the Johns Hopkins University. The lies in particular do no one any good, and indeed will lead to great harm. We've instances here where I am where people have been diagnosed with cancer, refused standard therapies to pursue supposed alternatives, only to come back with the lump now ulcerating through their skin or into the chest wall, or metastasized into their lungs, brain, and bones. At that point, it's divine intervention or nothing. True enough, there are environmental factors in cancers (some more than others), and things you can do to reduce your risk and pursue and all-around more healthier lifestyle. But if you or someone you care about unfortunately gets a cancer, you'll do yourself a great favor by getting the real facts. If only cancer were as simple as diet, supplements, and exercise.... If only it WERE that easy....

My eyes hurt from trying to read the YELLOW text on the WHITE background. : /

A lot of things in life can cause cancer, just like other users here have mentioned. Genetics for one, because having the right genes can be the difference between never getting lung cancer from smoking, or suffering really early on. I can see that sushipath as already debunked most of what OP posted, so I just thought I share this interesting article about a potential cure for cancer:

A virus that kills cancer: the cure that's waiting in the cold
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9508895/A-virus-that-kills-cancer-the-cure-thats-waiting-in-the-coldc.html


Sitting in a refrigerator in a Swedish laboratory is what promises to be a cheap and effective cancer treatment. So why are the trials to bring it to market not going ahead?


It's an interesting read, and I would recommend anyone to check it out.

it a very stupid idea, that thing mutates to affect all cells or key cells, and spreads like the flu, most of the human race will be wiped out if not all lol
