More on the 5 Year Cancer Cure Rate
When you see a chart of orthodox medicine 5 year cure rates, you might
see a number like: 45%, meaning 45% of cancer patients for this particular
cancer lived 5 years after diagnosis.
There are many statistical tricks that are used to get to this 45% figure,
but even if this number were accurate (which it is not), even this number
is worthless. I will explain why.
When you see a number like 45% you are supposed to think in your mind
this thought: The cure rate for those who refuse all orthodox treatments,
and refuse all alternative treatments, is 0%. That is what they want you
to think.In other words, they want you to think that the difference
between refusing all treatments and using chemotherapy, etc. is 45%. You
are supposed to think: a 45% 5 year cure rate for orthodox medicine, minus
a 0% 5 year cure rate for those who refuse all treatments, equals a difference
of 45%. You are supposed to think that orthodox treatments are superbly
beneficial because they are 45% effective.
But what is the truth? What if the 5 year cure rate for those who refused
all treatments was 50%? If that were the case, then 5% those who go on
orthodox treatments would die before the 5 years is up, whereas they would
not have died if they had refused all treatments. Would this statistic cause
people to run to the nearest hospital to have chemotherapy? Of course not.
My point is that orthodox medicine doesn’t want you to know the 5 year
cure rate for those who refuse all treatments and they especially don’t
want you to know the 5 year cure rate for those who go on alternative
treatments. Even though there are many people who refuse all treatments,
this statistic is not kept. Why? Because they don’t want you to know that
orthodox cancer treatments only have an overall REAL cure rate of 3%.
But what would be the REAL cure rate be of those who refused all
treatments?? They don’t want you to know that number.
When the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation are taken into
account, people would demand that orthodox treatments are at least 15%
higher, or more, than for those who refuse all treatments or go on
alternative cancer treatments. That statistic will never be calculated by
This 3% number does not mean that there would be an overall difference
of 3% on a 5 year cure rate basis (that is too short of a time to evaluate
orthodox treatments), it means that when all the dust settles, only 3% of
the patients have actually been cured with orthodox treatments. But what
would this cure rate be if people did not take any orthodox cancer
treatments and ate better foods, such as a lot of carrots?
Now do you understand why orthodox medicine uses so many
By far the most important statistics you need to know in order to make an
informed decision are suppressed and not kept. Why? Because they don’t
want you to make the obvious choice of going with alternative medicine
instead of orthodox medicine. But going with alternative medicine requires
a lot of homework on your part to make sure you go on the right
alternative cancer treatments.
More will be said about the suppression of data in a moment. More on
Treating the Symptoms of Cancer
Dr. Philip Binzel, M.D., a medical doctor who used alternative cancer
treatments, discussed several key issues relative to the treatment of
the symptoms of cancer. Let us look at a longer version of a quote
that was mentioned earlier:
“When a patient is found to have a tumor, the only thing the doctor
discusses with that patient is what he intends to do about the tumor. If
a patient with a tumor is receiving radiation or chemotherapy, the only
question that is asked is, “How is the tumor doing? No one ever asks
how the patient is doing. In my medical training, I remember well seeing
patients who were getting radiation and/or chemotherapy. The tumor
would get smaller and smaller, but the patient would be getting sicker
and sicker. At autopsy we would hear, Isn’t that marvelous! The tumor
is gone! Yes, it was, but so was the patient. How many millions of times
are we going to have to repeat these scenarios before we realize that we
are treating the wrong thing?
In primary cancer, with only a few exceptions, the tumor is neither
health-endangering nor life-threatening. I am going to repeat that
statement. In primary cancer, with few exceptions, the tumor is neither
health-endangering nor life-threatening. What is health-endangering and
life-threatening is the spread of that disease through the rest of the body.
There is nothing in surgery that will prevent the spread of cancer.
There is nothing in radiation that will prevent the spread of the disease.
There is nothing in chemotherapy that will prevent the spread of the
disease. How do we know? Just look at the statistics! There is a statistic
known as “survival time. Survival time is defined as that interval of
time between when the diagnosis of cancer is first made in a given
patient and when that patient dies from his disease.
In the past fifty years, tremendous progress has been made in the early
diagnosis of cancer. In that period of time, tremendous progress had been
made in the surgical ability to remove tumors. Tremendous progress has
been made in the use of radiation and chemotherapy in their ability to
shrink or destroy tumors. But, the survival time of the cancer patient today
is no greater than it was fifty years ago. What does this mean? It obviously
means that we are treating the wrong thing!
We are treating the symptom the tumor, and we are doing absolutely
nothing to prevent the spread of the disease. The only thing known to
mankind today that will prevent the spread of cancer within the body is
for that body’s own defense mechanisms to once again function normally.
That’s what nutritional therapy does. It treats the defense mechanism, not
The woman with a lump in her breast is not going to die from that lump.
The man with a nodule in his prostate gland is not going to die from that
nodule. What may kill both of those people is the spread of that disease
through the rest of their bodies. They got their disease because of a
breakdown of their defense mechanisms.
The only thing that is going to prevent the spread of their disease is to
correct the problem in those defense mechanisms. Doesn’t it seem logical
then, that we should be a lot less concerned with “What are we going to
do about the tumor?” and a lot more concerned about what we are going
to do about their defense mechanisms?
Philip Binzel, M.D., Alive and Well, Chapter 14
I want to emphasize a key point in that quote. Orthodox medicine treats
symptoms. They would have you believe that the tumor is the cancer. The
tumor is not the cancer. The tumor is a symptom of a symptom. A tumor
is a symptom of cancer and cancer is frequently a symptom of a weakened
immune system. Is it best to treat the symptom of the symptom or is it
best to treat the cause?
Alternative cancer treatments focus on building the immune system,
selectively killing cancer cells and sometimes on converting cancerous
cells into normal cells. Alternative cancer treatments are usually not
interested in shrinking tumors. Why? Because if you safely kill the
cancer cells in a tumor, and throughout the rest of the body, the tumor
is as harmless as your little finger, even if the tumor tissue is still there.
It is not the tumor tissue that is dangerous, it is the cancer cells.
And therein lies one of the major differences between orthodox medicine
and alternative medicine. Orthodox medicine focuses on the size of the
tumor, alternative medicine focuses on the cancer cells in the tumor.
Many alternative cancer treatments do not shrink the size of tumors.
Some do shrink the size of tumors, but some do not. So what? If the
cancer cells in a tumor are dead, the cancer will not spread and the
tumor is harmless.
This is what Dr. Binzel was talking about when he stated that orthodox
medicine was treating the wrong thing.
Only if the tumor is pressing on another organ, or is blocking some bodily
function, is the tumor dangerous. But in that case the tumor’s danger has
nothing to do with cancer.
Another interesting thing in that quote is that nothing that orthodox
medicine does treats the spread of the cancer. While it is true that some
chemotherapy is designed to kill fast spreading cells in the body,
chemotherapy always kills far more normal cells than cancer cells, Many
normal cells in the body are fast spreading and are killed by chemotherapy.
Chemotherapy would almost always kill the patient long before it would kill
all of the cancer cells in a body.
