"The War In Medicine"
Continued From The Last Post.In other words, virtually all ovarian cancer patients go
into remission, but 90% of them also come out of remission,
in what is called "relapse," and die within 5 to 10 years.
Then why even bother to talk about "remission" if 90% of
the patients also relapse? To make chemotherapy sound good,
More importantly, it "justifies" the medical community to
use more and more chemotherapy, and stronger and stronger
doses of chemotherapy. But if 90% relapse, what proof is
there that "remission" has a significant effect on life
expectancy? If dosages get stronger and stronger, then
here is more and more damage to the immune system, which
makes a person even more vulnerable to cancer, either
the original kind or another kind. Many women who have
ovarian cancer had breast cancer (and thus chemotherapy)
earlier in their lives.
"Two years ago, Hazel was diagnosed with breast cancer.
She described her chemotherapy as the worst experience of her
life. 'This highly toxic fluid was being injected into my
veins. The nurse administering it was wearing protective
gloves because it would burn her skin if just a tiny drip
came into contact with it. I couldn't help asking myself,
'If such precautions are needed to be taken on the outside,
then what is it doing to me on the inside?'"
What Most People Die Of
Most people who "die of cancer" really die as a result of
the treatment of the cancer by orthodox methods before they
would have died of the cancer itself. In other words: the
treatment kills them before the cancer kills them.
Most cancer patients die of malnutrition (cancer cells steal
nutrients from normal cells thus cancer patients need a
stronger than normal immune system) or opportunistic infections
caused by a weakened immune system.
"The powerful drugs used in cancer chemotherapy effectively
kill reproducing cells, including both the malignant tumor
cells and also, as a side effect, many cells continually
reproducing such as hair follicle cells and those lining the
gut, leading to severe nausea & vomiting. These side effects
can be very severe and many patients find these difficult
or impossible to tolerate, falling into a wasting syndrome
through malnutrition brought on by a combination of reduced
appetite and poor gastrointestinal efficiency, which can
itself shorten life expectancy."
Chemotherapy also destroys the immune system in several
different ways (including the damage done to the gastrointestinal
tract causing less immune building nutrients to be absorbed,
among other ways), making people much more susceptible to
infections. Of course orthodox medicine, always wanting
to treat symptoms in the most profitable way, are trying to
solve the malnutrition and immunity issues rather than
fixing the chemotherapy issues.
Because chemotherapy is so toxic, a person might ask:
"can chemotherapy kill the all of the cancer cells before
it kills the patient?"
But let us get back to our main question: "does the concept
of 'remission' equate to the concept of 'length of life since
diagnosis?'" Most people assume there is a direct correlation,
however, the damage done by chemotherapy and radiation, and
the severe shortening of life due to the complications of
these two treatments, cause severe doubt as to the equivalence
of 'remission' and 'length of life since diagnosis.'
My point is to say that the measurement statistics of
orthodox medicine (i.e. response, remission and markers)
have no bearing on life expectancy because they do not
compare the benefits of chemotherapy (killing of cancer
cells and reduction of tumor size) versus the damage done
by chemotherapy (e.g. destruction of immune system,
destruction of vital organs, etc.). Nor does the reduction
in tumor size have anything to do with life expectancy (I
will talk more about this later).
"It makes no sense at all to use chemotherapy and other
treatments that damage cells and tear down and weaken the
immune system, when the problem in the first place is that
the immune system is too weak already. Even if the tumors
go into remission, these treatments have damaged other cells
which are more likely to turn cancerous."
