Cancer Victors News
January 22, 2009
(NaturalNews) The cost of cancer treatment rose dramatically between 1991 and 2002, sparking fears that many people may be going without the most effective treatment, according to a study conducted by researchers from the National Cancer Institute.
Researchers used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End-Results (SEER) Medicare database to examine the costs of initial cancer treatments in 306,709 breast, colorectal, lung and prostate cancer patients over the age of 65. These treatments included surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and other hospitalization.
Over the ten-year period studied, the average cost of breast cancer treatment increased $4,189 to $20,964. The average cost of treating prostate cancer increased $5,435 to $41,134, while the average cost of lung cancer treatment went up $7,139 to $39,891.
The researchers attributed the increasing cost to an increase in the use of chemotherapy. The introduction of newer, more expensive drugs occurred so recently that it is unlikely to have influenced the numbers in the current study, they said - meaning that the cost of cancer treatment is probably already much higher than the numbers for 2002.
Researchers noted that increasing costs are placing a strain on Medicare and have led to changes in its reimbursement policy. This, in turn, can influence patients' ability to afford the most effective treatment.
"There were changes to Medicare payment policy over the period of this study," said Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, "and they had significant impact on how physicians were reimbursed. The net result is that it may have influenced practice patterns that we are seeing, such as the transition from surgery and radiation therapy for prostate cancer."
The average cost paid for prostate cancer treatment actually decreased slightly ($196) to $18,261, an effect that researchers attributed to the decreasing popularity of expensive surgery.
"Some people are not able to afford [more expensive] treatments," Lichtenfeld said. "The increased use of expensive chemotherapy is having an impact on how we treat cancer patients."

Catching a cold? Maybe that's Mother Nature's way of telling you to stay home and get some sleep for a change. A new study conducted at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh has found that people who get fewer than seven hours of sleep a night are 300% more likely to catch colds.
This study, however, does not establish a causal relationship between a lack of sleep and catching colds. It more likely points to an underlying health stance by participants, where unhealthy individuals suffer both from suppressed immune systems and sleep disorders at the same time. Healthy people, on the other hand, were able to resist infections while enjoying better-quality sleep.
Resisting colds is quite easy for the nutritionally informed. When your body retains sufficient levels of both vitamin D and zinc, catching common colds is virtually impossible. I haven't caught a cold in more than six years, probably, and most hard-core natural health consumers who live on superfoods and raw foods reports virtually zero colds.
Interestingly, the people who catch colds the most often are those who get flu shots, indicating that flu shots may actually weaken the immune system, making recipients more vulnerable to future infections. It is well documented, by the way, that flu shots -- even if they work -- only protect people against last year's flu strains, not this year's flu. Thus, the whole basis upon which flu shots are promoted is temporally flawed to begin with. Unless you own a time travel machine, that is.
In any case, there's no question that getting eight hours of sleep a night is good for your health (and your immune system), but if you really want to avoid catching colds, probably the most important thing you can do -- especially during the Winter -- is raise your vitamin D levels. That can easily be accomplished by either taking vitamin D supplements (or fish oils) or taking a month-long vacation to Hawaii where you hang out on the beaches and soak up some healing rays.
Just be sure to take astaxanthin and lots of superfood antioxidants for at least 30 days before going, so that you are protected against sunburn. And throw out the sunscreen, folks, unless you want skin cancer from all the chemicals found in sunscreen.

(NaturalNews) Scientists have long puzzled over the reasons sleep is so important. Brian Preston from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and an international team of researchers just published research that backs up their theory sleep improves the function of the immune system --and it may specifically protect animals from being overrun by parasite infections.
According to a study just published in the journal BMC Evolutionary Biology, species of animals that get substantial sleep not only have a greater concentration of immune cells in their blood, they also are able to stave off more parasite infections than other creatures. "We suggest that sleep fuels the immune system. While awake, animals must be ready to meet multiple demands on a limited energy supply, including the need to search for food, acquire mates, and provide parental care. When asleep, animals largely avoid these costly activities, and can thus allocate resources to the body`s natural defenses," Dr. Preston said in a media statement.
The scientists studied sleep in mammals, analyzed the animals` immune system measurements, and looked at numbers of infections with parasites. They found mammals that have evolved to have longer sleep cycles have more circulating immune cells and fewer infections with parasites like intestinal worms.
So what do these findings have to do with human health? Possibly, a lot. The researchers conclude: "Given the declines in human sleep durations that have occurred over the past few decades, there is a clear need for studies that further clarify the immunological significance of sleep."
Bottom line: add getting enough sleep to a healthy lifestyle in order to keep your immune system strong and able to fight parasites, which are now throughout the world -- not only in developing countries. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 14 percent of the U.S. population is infected with Toxocara, or internal roundworms, and some 60million people in the United States are likely infected with Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite associated with raw meat and contact with cat feces. In addition, a report on food borne parasites prepared for the Food Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin in 2003 found about two and a half million cases of food and waterborne Giardia lamblia and three million cases of Cryptosporidium parvum in the U.S. annually. Both these parasites are transmitted through drinking water contaminated with the fecal material of infected persons. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks parasites as among the six most dangerous diseases that infect humans.
Parasites in humans can cause intestinal discomfort, bloating gas and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Although drugs can be prescribed to kill parasites, many herbs and foods have traditionally been used to treat parasite infections . According to the University of Maryland Medical School web site, these include: raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, pomegranates, beets, and carrots, all of which have antiworm properties.

January 7, 2009
(NaturalNews) This year marks a major turning point in the theory of wellness and the prevention of disease. The drug-based paradigm of Western medicine is crumbling under the weight of its own massive fraud. New technology is proving how nutrients interact at the fundamental gene level to promote health and prevent disease. The discoveries are occurring at a breakneck pace – these are exciting times.
In the face of an obesity epidemic and the early onset of the diseases of aging in even young Americans, there shines a bright ray of hope. It is there for anyone who chooses to inform themselves and then take effective actions to better themselves. The aging clock can be slowed – and in many cases reversed. It is the dawn of a new era.
The following is a list of the Top 10 health breakthroughs of 2008. I know there are many other possible candidates for this Top 10 list. This is my version of the highlights that made 2008 special.
#10 – The Mayo Clinic Places One Foot in the Door of the Real World
Miracles never cease and it appears that the Mayo Clinic is trying to enter the 21st century with at least a finger on the nutritional pulse of reality. In May they put out a press release stating that "Thousands of research studies have documented how the oils known as omega-3 fatty acids can benefit the cardiovascular system, particularly among people diagnosed with coronary artery disease…The most compelling evidence for the cardiovascular benefit provided by omega-3 fatty acids comes from three large controlled trials of 32,000 participants randomized to receive omega-3 fatty acid supplements containing DHA and EPA….These trials showed reductions in cardiovascular events of 19 percent to 45 percent. Overall, these findings suggest that intake of omega-3 fatty acids, whether from dietary sources or fish oil supplements, should be increased, especially in those with or at risk for coronary artery disease."
The breakthrough is not that fish oils prevent and treat heart disease; we've known that for years. The breakthrough is that the vitamin-and-alternative-health-hating Mayo Clinic is telling the world to take fish oil supplements to prevent heart disease. That signifies the initial stages of a paradigm shift of magnitude.
#9 – Bone Health Is One Key to Longevity
Bones can no longer be thought of only in terms of fracture risk and osteoporosis. Bones are constantly giving birth to new cells and these cells play vital roles in metabolism and immunity. For example, when bone cells get inflamed not only does this promote excess bone loss it directly causes fat cells to multiply in white adipose tissue – which clearly explains why women gain weight after menopause as well as the key to stopping the problem.
The highlight study of the year was a detailed gene analysis performed on one of the world's healthiest older men (he was 113 at the time, recently passing away at 114). Researchers expected to find genetic advantages enabling him to live a long life. Much to their surprise, he didn't have any "better genes" at all – he had better bones! And the reason he had better bones was because he ate a diet containing fresh fruit and vegetables (bone anti-inflammatory nutrients) and stayed very active (stimulating bone health).
Needless to say, disastrous bone drugs were not part of his plan.
#8 – Grape Seed Extracts Stop Alzheimer's Plaque
This year's research showed that "normal" brain aging is quite an abnormal process; with the loss of mental capability, intelligence, and memory directly relating to how many plaque-like brain tangles occur. At the far end of the spectrum is Alzheimer's disease – a problem with brain plaque overwhelming healthy brain function. However, there are a thousand shades of grey on the way to this problem, and each step in the wrong direction is marked by ever-increasing levels of brain plaque.
Red grape seed extracts showed that they could stop brain plaque from forming. The new research showed that brain cells must first be punched in the nose by some form of stress, get inflamed, and then begin to express certain genes that promote plaque formation. Red grape seed extracts simply stop this process from occurring. Not only that, they are powerful protection for the lining of your arteries – helping to stop plaque formation there as well.
#7 – Vitamin D for Anything and Everything
A major question during 2008 was: "Is there anything that vitamin D does not help?" Vitamin D's role in bone metabolism is well known. Its role as a hormone is less well known but very important. As a bewildering array of breaking science now shows, vitamin D is a gene-regulating super nutrient. It is vital for efficient immune function, prevention of autoimmune problems, healthy metabolism, proper thyroid function, prevention of type I and type II diabetes, prevention of heart disease, cancer prevention, and improved nervous system health and mood.
The sunshine vitamin is indeed a wonder nutrient. The American Cancer Society sits around with major mud on its face, doing everything in its power to prevent people from getting vitamin D – a problem made worse in the winter months when none is available for most of the U.S. And as usual, our bumbling government won't let all Americans know that they need 1200 IU to 2000 IU of vitamin D per day, especially in the winter, to help prevent major health problems.
#6 – Resveratrol Turns Back the Clock
An explosion in resveratrol science hit the front pages of the news around the world, as Big Pharma spent millions trying to make resveratrol drugs. The Big Pharma spending is interesting for several reasons:
1) Just imagine how much we could learn if our government would spend money studying all major nutrients in widespread use.
2) The resveratrol nutrient that is already on the market will end up working better than any drug made.
Resveratrol activates a gene called SIRT1, which has a profound disease prevention and anti-aging effect. SIRT1 is normally activated by calorie restriction in times of famine. However, in today's world of excess food consumption it will be a major tool to prevent and treat the coming obesity epidemic and all its health complications.
It is already clear that the supplement works best when you are on a good diet, as too much food simply turns off SIRT1. Its value during a diet is that it helps your muscles work better on fewer calories so that you can actually lose weight while feeling great.
Even if you aren't overweight, the other main point is that resveratrol will help you live longer – a fact borne out by the lifespan in various regions of France that have the highest content of resveratrol in their red wine.
#5 – The Digestive Genome Marks the New Frontier of Health
The mapping of the human genome was a monumental accomplishment that has yielded unexpected information. As scientists began to unravel the mysteries of how the human genome is controlled, they quickly found that many of the signals controlling health were coming from the foreign contents within your digestive tract. Like the space race to the moon, the new health frontier is now the genomes of the trillions of foreign cells that comprise your digestive tract.
A treasure trove of information has already been uncovered. Many of these foreign cells are vital to health and have both a friendly and unfriendly role depending on which of their genes are turned on. A case in point is H.pylori and Candida albicans, both of which are considered unfriendly and both of which are normal inhabitants of your digestive tract and need to be in a friendly condition for optimal digestive health and the prevention of digestive disease. In fact, your personal "foreign cell signature" directly influences your own immune tissue to form along the lining of your digestive tract. It also plays a large role in how much inflammation you experience elsewhere in your body – including your joints and back. Friendly flora is vital to maintaining a state of balance that promotes health.
Decades of damage from the overuse of antibiotics, high sugar diets, junk food, chemicals in the diet, pesticides in the diet, genetically modified toxic food, and excess alcohol can finally be seen for the disease-producers they really are. It will be a long time before your doctor gives you any meaningful advice on this subject, since their profession has helped create an epidemic of poor digestive health that in the light of this emerging science is proving to be a major contributing factor to multiple diseases – not just digestive-related problems.
#4 – The Changing World of Fat, Cholesterol, and Heart Disease
Those basing health decisions on cholesterol numbers and concepts of good and bad cholesterol have been left in the Stone-Age dust. HDL, or "good" cholesterol, can have its proteins oxidized and easily become "bad" just like LDL. Cholesterol itself turns out to be a vital player in the structure of nerve receptors, and its levels are reduced when taking medication to lower numbers of LDL. Cholesterol fitness, like muscle fitness, is the new concept of cholesterol health that supports true cardiovascular health.
A huge breakthrough occurred this year when it was demonstrated for the first time that fat accumulating around the outside of arteries was the key signal of impending cardiovascular disease. This fat, which builds up in direct proportion to your waistline expanding, was previously thought to be part of the structure of arteries and not play a functional role. New scientific tools have shown that it accumulates in excess, recruits inflammatory immune cells to live in its newly expanded neighborhood, and they generate inflammation into the arteries that knocks out friendly nitric oxide causing blood pressure to rise and simultaneously generates massive free radical damage that injures LDL and HDL cholesterol and sets the plaquing process in motion.
This is made worse if blood levels of triglycerides stay high during the day – which is caused by eating meals that are too large, snacking between meals, and not exercising.
#3 – How Much BDNF is In Your Bank Account?
Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF) may well be the molecule of the year. BDNF is key to keeping your nerve cells alive and stimulating the growth of new nerve cells. Since your nerve cells are important for regulating everything else, keeping them in top working condition not only means that your mind will stay sharp it means you are likely to live longer and healthier.
This year scientists proved the immense value of having adequate BDNF for virtually any issue of nerve and brain related health. If your supplies run low then you cannot tolerate stress properly, you are more likely to be or become depressed, your brain is prone to excess inflammation, and you are set on a path of decline. Conversely, having adequate BDNF helps you keep up with the demands in your life. It means that you have the potential to keep your mind and nerves in good working condition.
For example, when you have adequate BDNF then old memories don't bother you or come back to haunt you at the most inopportune times. Having adequate BDNF may be a key, along with being a good person, to maintaining healthy relationships.
This year scientists demonstrated that fish oil, blueberries, curcumin, and pantethine all help boost the production of BDNF.
#2 – Run for Your Life
Running is now proven to be the single activity with the most bang for the longevity buck. Early in the year papers emphasized the importance of running in human evolution. It was also found that running is the best exercise to boost levels of BDNF. It was proven that running can rejuvenate your heart and even brisk walking can effectively lower your blood pressure.
The highlight of the year was the result of a 20-year study on running over the age of 50. It found that those who ran cut their risk of premature death in half! No drug can do that.
It also found that runners had less cardiovascular disease, fewer cancer deaths, less cognitive decline, and better immunity – and their joints were in good condition.
Running turns on gene signals associated with health – it's that simple. The choice is yours.
#1 – Thyroid Health is for Everyone
A startling array of thyroid-related studies have shown that even a slightly off thyroid sends you down a path of poor health. While thyroid issues are often associated with obesity, thyroid problems affect normal weight and underweight people as well. One of the important points to grasp about the emerging science is that these are not thyroid problems that can be treated with medication – as there is usually adequate thyroid hormone. This information is about thyroid stressors such as common pollution like PCBs, perchlorate in the food supply, excess food consumption, and general emotional stress – to name of few.
This year scientific studies showed a sluggish thyroid system was directly related to increased mortality, fatal heart disease, disturbed heart rhythms, elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, lack of coordination, risk of breast cancer, mood problems, glaucoma, and Alzheimer's risk.
You may wonder why so many issues can be associated with a type of thyroid problem that doctors don't even see as a problem. The answer is that your thyroid system sets the metabolic pace of your body, like the drummer in a band sets the tempo. If that tempo is too sluggish then everything else works less well, which means wear and tear accumulates at a faster rate.
You can fix sluggish thyroid problems by eating a cleaner diet, regular exercise, and using nutrients that facilitate healthy thyroid function – especially by enhancing the conversion of T4 to T3 and by providing adequate thyroid-related antioxidants.
The take home message from this year's thyroid news is that you should do everything possible to keep your entire thyroid system working at an optimal level of health. There is no comfort to be found in being "good for your age." The only thing that really matters is optimal function – which is the foundation for your future health.
The era of true anti-aging nutrition is upon us. There are no quick fixes – but there is a path to follow that is now backed by considerable science. Hop on – enjoy quality of health – for a very long time.

NaturalNews) Vaccinations are modern medicine's most-favored form of quackery. Even while the bulk of the evidence shows vaccines and flu shots ultimately harm more people than they help, they continue to be pushed by doctors, drug companies and state health authorities. Now you can add pediatricians to that list.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, a group of drug-pushing doctors that claim to care for children, is now demanding that parents get their children injected with an annual flu shot vaccine -- even for six-month-old babies! According to the new AAP guidelines, all children from six months to eighteen years old should receive an annual flu shot vaccine injection even though flu shots have been scientifically shown to be effective on only about one percent of those receiving them!
But here's the most disturbing part: The AAP is now aggressively attacking anyone who suggests flu shot vaccines should be spaced apart or skipped altogether in order to reduce the vaccine burden on a child.
The cumulative toxic vaccine burden
With a child in the U.S. now receiving upwards of 130 different vaccines (many are combined into a single shot, so it's not 130 shots), it only makes logical sense to wonder whether there's such a thing as a cumulative toxic vaccine burden that might harm the health of a child. But the AAP apparently believes there's no limit to the number of vaccines a child may be given. Even a six-month old infant may receive a thousand different vaccines as long as they are demanded by health authorities.
Any doctors or health authority who questions vaccines today is immediately branded a quack by the pro-drug, pro-chemical medical establishment, and vaccines have become the dividing issue that separates the medically insane from the sane. Those who push for mandatory vaccines (like HPV) and annual flu shots for infants are, of course, the insane "mad doctors" who think the human body is somehow deficient in viral DNA fragments and must be supplemented with any number of such injections in order to be healthy.
The agenda of the insane vaccine pushers is to literally criminalize all parents who object to vaccines and strip the medical licenses of any doctors who urge caution on vaccines. Importantly, they claim there is no room for debate on the issue of vaccines because they are so righteous in their vaccine wisdom that no reasonable person can even question the reasoning behind a child being injected with over a hundred vaccines.
Vaccine pushers have become irrational zealots
By taking this position, the pro-vaccine pushers have revealed themselves as irrational vaccine zealots who promote their chemical agenda not because it makes scientific sense, nor because it is medically justified, but rather because it is their demented way of dominating and controlling the population.
The pro-vaccine doctors have become a cult, and in this cult instead of sacrificing all your money and possessions, you sacrifice the health of your own children, turning them into modern medicine's lab rats who are subjected to outrageous medical experiments. (Let's face it: Injecting a child with 130+ vaccines is nothing less than a medical experiment.)
The frightening thing about this cult is that its power over the population is enforced at gunpoint. Try to resist the vaccination cult's directives, and you may find yourself arrested at gunpoint, your children kidnapped by state health authorities (CPS) and you end up in jail, charged with neglecting your child's health.
That's no exaggeration: In states like Maryland, parents are already being threatened with imprisonment for failing to get their children vaccinated, and the vaccine cultist are pushing for mandatory vaccine laws throughout the nation.
The radicalization of the vaccine pushers
In attempting to criticize opposition to his fabricated war on Iraq, President Bush famously said, "You're either with us, or you're with the terrorists." This extremist stance is now mirrored by the vaccine pushers who are essentially saying, "You either agree with us, or you're a criminal."
Such a position leaves zero room for thoughtful debate, eliminating the possibility of coherent discussion over possible health threats that might be posed by vaccines. It's also a clear sign of the radicalization of the vaccine pushers who unfortunately seem to hold positions of high authority in modern society.
As the vaccine-pushing cult becomes more radicalized and even militarized (due to gunpoint enforcement, attack dogs at the Maryland courthouse vaccine enforcement event, etc.) it runs the risk of looking more and more like a home-grown terrorist group. It already shares many similarities with terrorist groups: The use of fear to promote its agenda, the use of chemical weapons that harm and kill civilians, the use of firearms and violent weapons to enforce its agenda, and the adoption of an intellectually-extremist position that declares all opponents to be criminals.
It's true that medical violence against children is routinely tolerated in America today. There is no crime modern medicine can commit against children that's outrageous enough to warrant an arrest of the medical authorities, apparently: They can poison children with chemicals, maim them with medically unnecessary surgery, destroy their brains with psychiatric drugs, burn their flesh with radiation treatments and obliterate their immune systems with chemotherapy, but as long as it's approved by a doctor, nobody seems to question this violent medical abuse of a child.
And when angry parents try to fight the system by petitioning the government to end mandatory vaccine regulations, for example, they are immediately called "scientifically illiterate" and accused of neglect.
That's the key to all this, of course: Any parent who objects to vaccines is effectively threatened with being arrested for daring to oppose the all-powerful medical authorities. It is through this blanket of fear that most parents are motivated to shut their mouths, take the shots and stop asking questions about things like autism.
Losing your freedoms AND your health
So what does it all really mean? It means pro-vaccine doctors are not only a threat to your child's health, but also a threat to your freedoms! These vaccine-pushing health authorities aren't running a public health campaign; they're running a militant cult that declares all who oppose it to be criminals deserving arrest and imprisonment.
Like all such militant cults that rise to power, the vaccine pushers need to have their power checked before they become an even greater threat to the health and safety of families everywhere. This could be easily accomplished with the passage of health freedom laws that would establish the permanent right of parents to refuse to subject their children to chemical concoctions they object to.
The fact that we even have to consider new laws to protect such rights demonstrates just how much of a threat to health freedoms the vaccine pushers have already become. When governments and state-license health authorities are given the power to override the commonsense decisions of parents, the very fabric of freedom is beginning to fray.
Or, put another way, when parents who try to protect their own children from a dangerous accumulation of toxic chemicals are branded criminals and imprisoned, a dangerous threshold has been crossed that takes the entire nation further away from anything resembling freedom and a lot closer to a medical police state.
The future of militant medicine in America
If this militant vaccine agenda isn't stopped, and if medical authorities are given even more state power over the People, it's not hard to imagine a future where:
• Where chemotherapy is administered to children at gunpoint and those who resist are arrested.
• Where refusing to put a child on psychiatric drugs is considered justifiable grounds for mandatory psychiatric medication of the parents (in a mental institution, of course!).
• Where all information on the internet that challenges vaccines or pharmaceuticals is censored, and those who dare to publish it are arrested and "disappeared." Imagine a Gitmo for bloggers...
• Where vaccine pushers demand an ever-increasing barrage of vaccines for all children, reaching a point of utter insanity where 1000 or more vaccines are injected into a six-month-old baby.
• Where feeding your child vitamins is considered a crime, and children are even "drug tested" for traces of vitamins, and those found to carry such traces are taken away from their parents by Child Protective Services.
Do these possibilities seem outlandish? The idea that parents could be arrested for refusing to subject their child to chemotherapy also seemed outlandish at one time, but now it's a present-day reality. The idea that the State would send letters to thousands of parents, threatening them with jail time if they didn't submit their children to a "vaccination processing line" at the local courthouse also once seemed outlandish. But now it's an historical fact.
That something seems crazy has never been sufficient to prevent it from actually occurring, and the medical authorities seem willing to abandon human rights more quickly than just about any other group, including terrorist groups. Most terrorist groups, after all, tend to target adults (9/11, for example) while the vaccine pushers are targeting children. Terrorist groups also tend to target populations of other nations, while the vaccine pushers are targeting the children of their own countries.
This is not to say that vaccine-pushing doctors ARE terrorists, only that they use tactics and have embraced extremist views that are frighteningly similar to terrorists. Obviously, doctors don't use bombs, fragmentation grenades and rocket launchers to harm people. They use chemical poisons, heavy metals and viral fragments instead.
Perhaps we should start referring to the act of receiving a vaccination injection as "being fragged."

Key concepts: Genes, Cancer and Medical myths
It's a clever line parroted by cancer docs everywhere: Your genes cause cancer, so you'd better get your breasts surgically removed just in case, you know, so you don't ever get cancer.
But as it turns out, the whole genetic link to cancer is 99% hogwash. A study completed at the Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece analyzed hundreds of other studies that claimed to have "discovered" genes that cause cancer, and it found that out of 240 claimed associations between genes and cancer risk, only two genes actually had any significant correlation at all. (That's less than one percent, if you're keeping track.)
Put another way, over 99% of the claims about genes causing cancer don't hold up to scientific scrutiny.
So what are they, then? Scare tactics, of course. By blaming genes for disease, doctors can disempower patients and convince them that they have no control over their own health. It also diminishes the importance of avoiding smoking, boosting vitamin D consumption, increasing exercise and engaging in other smart lifestyle improvements that directly reduce cancer risk. When people are convinced they're going to get cancer anyway ("It's in your genes!"), they tend to stop taking care of their health, giving in to the deterministic brainwashing that's been fed to them by the profit-driven cancer industry.
It's no surprise, of course, that real science shows the cancer gene claims to be 99% junk science. The cancer industry has never been interested in real science anyway: It's run almost entirely on the quest for corporate profits and the ongoing use of fear mongering tactics such as scaring women into submitting to chemotherapy by using mammography equipment that routinely produces false positives.
Even the whole cancer screening process is actually part of the cancer recruiting scam: Since mammograms emit cancer-causing radiation, a woman who undergoes mammography on a regular basis inevitably ends up with cancer tumors that were caused by the mammograms! Thus, the very process of screening for cancer causes cancer!
And then, when they find a tumor in your breast, they claim, "There's nothing you could have done about it. You had the gene for breast cancer."
Nonsense. Pure quackery. Criminal quackery, even.
The truth is that you can be free of cancer regardless of your genetic code, because it is the expression of those genes that matters. And guess what controls the expression of your genes? Your nutrition, diet, lifestyle choices and avoidance of cancer-causing chemicals in foods, drugs, cosmetics and personal care products.
In other words, you have probably 99% control over whether you get cancer or not. But the corrupt cancer industry wants you to think you actually have zero control.
What a con.
