A major rewrite on the science of cancer is in process.  Cancer makes us on anaerobic, inefficient route for the production of the energy molecule ATP.  In most cases it involves the mutation of the mitochondria is that they cannot use oxygen cycle to produce ATP from glucose, and if metastatic a infusion of essential properties of marcophages has occurred.  The dependence on glucose in large quantities permits a ketogenic diet to starve the cancer cells and produce remission, and sometimes cure of metastatic or inoperable cancers.

Of special interest is a very effective treatment for most cancers with minimal side effects, aspirin.  It stimulates the body’s necrosis factor for destruction of abnormal cells. It is well supported by dozens of journal articles, yet it has not entered into treatment protocols—such is the power of pharma.  At the end of the article is the section on aspirin.  This article is periodically updated at http://healthfully.org/rc/id16.html and a long version is at http://healthfully.org/rl/id4.html

There is grass root revulsion to the current corporate health industry, with pharma doing the most harm.  The best account of bad pharma is by Danish Prof. Peter Gotzsche in his 2013 book Deadly Medicine and Organised Crime:  How big pharma has corrupted healthcare.  Prof. Gotzsche’s book has won the British Medical Book Award given by the BMA (British Medical Association which is comparable to our AMA).  Further endorsement comes from the Richard Smith former Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ (British Medical Journal) and Drummond Rennie, Deputy Editor of JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) which are 2 of the 4 leading English medical journal.   The President’s Lecture on YouTube by Harvard Professor Marcia Angell confirms Prof. Gotzsche’s book. Pharma is worse than you can imagine.

CHEMO THAT CAN’T CURE METASTATIC CANCER, THUS IT CAN’T CURE INDOLENT CANCER.  They are essentially the same but for the ability to fool the immune system. There is not an atypical positive response for a subgroup; those terminal patients have an indolent form of the cancer.  The term “Survival” applied to chemo means “delays death” a few months.  Like soldiers, doctors are believers, thus they sell their faith in chemo.

 

There is a sales pitch for chemotherapy based upon bad logic.  An example will make it clear.  The 2 year survival for untreated small cell lung cancer average is 9 month, with 95 dying within 2 years.  Chemo therapy adds to the bell curve 2 months.  Thus average survival is 11 months, and 95% die within 2 years 2 months.   Gertrude has small cell breast cancer, and would untreated live average of 9 months.  If she elects treatment, she will be dead in the 11th month.  Treatment doesn’t place Gertrude in the fortunate group of living over 2 years. 

If, for example a  stage 3 breast cancer (65% chance that it is metastatic) turns out to be metastatic  the results is the same with chemo, only now that person lives 2 months longer.  Chemo doesn’t convert doesn’t change the course of events.  Metastatic cancer is like a time bomb, set to kill its host after so many months.  For those who have an indolent non-metastatic cancer, the operation entails they are a cancer survivor.  If she is a survivor without chemo, electing chemotherapy, she shortened her life by years.  I estimate at least 4.5 years.  Millions of people undergo pointless chemo that shortens their lives, and very significantly reduced the quality of their life.  If the cancer patient understood these four points, (1) that for 90% if cancer types chemo can't provide a cure, (2) can't prevent an indolent cancer from become metastatic,  (3) adds to their suffering an additional 2 months, (4) and when cured by removal the pointless chemotherapy has both shortened significantly their life and reduced the quality of their remaining years.  I would refuse a chemotherapy if for that cancer type it didn't cure at least 20% of the patients compared to those who haven't had chemo.  I would also go on a ketogenic diet to starve the cancer, and I would take 2 grams of aspirin a day, and I would continue with hormone replacement.  In this site you can through the internal google search engine find the relevant articles and the lecture on YouTube by Prof. Thomas  Seyfried at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBjnWfT8HbQ&hd=1.   

There is an alarming laxity in the production of research, education of public and doctors, and standards of FDA approval for drugs, as well as the monitoring of safety and effectiveness of drugs.  For 2 chapters of the best book on how big PHARMA has manipulated the above and much more by Doctor Marcia Angell (Harvard Professor and former editor of New England Journal of Medicine).
