"The War In Medicine"
Continued From The Last Post.The last part of that statement requires more explanation:
"Chemotherapy has other drawbacks. There is an increased
incidence of second, apparently unrelated malignancies in
patients who have been "cured" by means of anticancer drugs.
This is probably because the drugs themselves are carcinogenic.
When radiation and chemotherapy were given together, the
incidence of these second tumors was approximately twenty-five
times the expected rate.
Since both radiation and chemotherapy suppress the
immune system, it is possible that new tumors are allowed
to grow because the patient has been rendered unable to
resist them. In either case, a person who is cured of
cancer by these drastic means may find herself struggling
with a new, drug-induced tumor a few years later."
Ralph Moss, The Cancer Industry -
So let us summarize this discussion:
With regards to "length of life since diagnosis," the
concepts of "remission" and "reduction" are ineffective
at evaluating the quantitative "length of life since
diagnosis" because they fail to calculate an accurate
number of cancer cells still in the body (at the time
the cancer is determined to be in "remission"), and
they fail to take into account the severely weakened
immune system that can no longer routinely deal with
cancer cells (a normal immune system routinely kills
cancer cells, but not a weakened immune system). Thus,
there is a significant probability the same cancer will
return or anothercancer will arise.
In other words: there is no proven correlation between
being in "remission" and increasing the "length of life
since diagnosis!" Perhaps more importantly, there is no
evidence that chemotherapy and radiation significantly
increase the life of patients (compared to those who
refuse treatment or go with alternative treatments),
which would be necessary to justify their use.
"In 1975, the respected British medical journal Lancet
reported on a study which compared the effect on cancer
patients of (1) a single chemotherapy, (2) multiple
chemotherapy, and (3) no treatment at all. No treatment
'proved a significantly better policy for patients'
survival and for quality of remaining life.'"
Barry Lynes, The Healing of Cancer - The Cures - the
Cover-ups and the Solution Now!
With regards to "quality of life since diagnosis," there
is no question that chemotherapy and radiation fail
miserably in this area. Chemotherapy and radiation both
decrease a person's quality of life to such a degree that
many cancer patients in treatment quit their treatment
program. They would rather be dead than have
to go through such misery.
With regards to "strength of the immune system during
and after treatments," chemotherapy and radiation
treatments fail miserably in this criteria also. In
fact it is the destruction of the immune system that
causes many patients to die during treatment.
In short, the concepts of "remission" and "reduction"
fail to relate to meaningful statistics with regards to
"length of life since diagnosis." Chemotherapy and
radiation fail the other two criteria in spite of a patient
going into remission.
We thus conclude with extreme vigor that the concept of
"remission" and "reduction" are not valuable measures
by which to judge the effectiveness of orthodox treatments
for cancer. In a future chapter I will use verified
statistics to compare orthodox medicine with alternative
Cancer can be cured.
