A Medical Scandal That Strips Cancer Patients of a Fighting Chance
During the 2010 Emmy Awards, recording artist Jewel performed a song in memoriam to celebrities that had passed away this year. She had written the song as a tribute to her friend who had succumbed to cancer.
It was quite touching and got me thinking about a heart-wrenching story I read in the Dallas News the other day. If you’re a woman, and especially if you’re a mother, there’s little doubt you will empathize with what the report was about.
A young mother, 43 years old, lost her battle with stage-4 breast cancer. She had endured debilitating chemotherapy treatments, mouth sores, painful blistering skin, and more with steadfast hope. But what she could not endure was the thought her three young children would grow up with no memory of her.
Despite her poor prognosis and debilitating treatments she continued the fight. She told her oncologist she just needed 10 more years so her children would have memories of her when she was gone. With that end in mind she continued chemotherapy as the doctors jumped from one drug to another. But it was to no avail. Two years after her diagnosis, she lost her life to cancer.
How much longer will this go on?
According to the United Nations’ Cancer Research Agency cancer will kill more than 13.2 million people a year by 2030. That’s twice the number that died from cancer in 2008.
What about all the advances in medicine we read about? What about the groundbreaking technology we hear about on the evening news? Wouldn’t you think the medical community would have a strong clue as to what really causes cancer and how to best treat it?
Sadly, it’s not the case.
It’s scandalous how traditional cancer treatments do much more harm than good.
However, the medical community will never be upfront about this. The vast majority of conventional doctors will continue to hand out drugs, recommend radiation, and perform surgeries as the “best” treatment available. And people who have faith in their doctor will accept their solutions unquestionably. Most people are willing to do anything to reverse what they perceive to be a death sentence.
The outrage is these “solutions” are not only incredibly expensive (and here’s the REAL outrage) include dangerous drugs that do much more harm than good.
Some of the best-selling cancer drugs cost thousands of dollars a month yet they haven’t been proven to do one bit of good. No improvement in quality of life or in longevity.
On the contrary. They’ve actually been proven deadly. And the doctors know it.
The very drugs doctors prescribe to cure cancer is proven to cause cancer in healthy people. Oh, the irony. Cancer patients are more likely to die prematurely from the chemotherapy than the cancer itself. And if the deadly cocktail doesn’t get you sooner rather than later, chemotherapy treatments increase your risk for other cancers down the road. In addition, they set you up for other illnesses by weakening the immune system and causing genetic alterations.
And get this. A study published in Clinical Oncology found that chemotherapy has only a 2% success rate for all cancers, “success” referring to a 5-year survival rate. Only 2%? Judging by the way most traditional doctors rush into chemo, you’d think it would be a slam-dunk.
Far from it.
Documentation shows that chemotherapy can expedite or cause death. It’s little wonder because in order to destroy cancer cells the drugs must be extremely toxic. The problem is these toxins destroy healthy cells as well; in turn disabling your body to do anything to deal with the cancer on it’s on.
And then there’s this overlooked and ignored fact…
Natural, alternative cancer treatments do no harm at all.
Natural cancer treatments take an entirely different approach. They work with your body instead of against it. No deadly side effects and they strengthen the body’s ability to heal itself.
Natural cancer treatments are vast and varied and if you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, you may want to get in touch with a natural health care expert. They can help and guide you through your toughest medical decisions with knowledge about nutrition, alternative methods, and emotional help so you can get well and finally get your life back.
Don’t settle for a death sentence whether it is through cancer or the method used to “treat” it. There are other options available.
