"The War In Medicine"
Continued From The Last Post.A Valid Definition of Cure Rate
So how should "cure rates" be defined? Here is my definition:
Definition of Cure Rate: "a person is cured of their cancer
by treatment if they do not die of cancer, and if they do
not die of something caused directly or indirectly by their
cancer, and if they do not die from the side-effects of
the treatment, and if they do not die indirectly from the side-
effects of their treatment. All treatment statistics using
life expectancy require that the treatment be compared
to no treatment at all under the same detection criteria."
Using such a statistic would expose just how useless
chemotherapy and radiation are. But you will never see
this definition used with chemotherapy and radiation
because orthodox medicine likes to hide behind bogus
statistics, just like the B companies above.
It would be very logical for cancer researchers to use a
valid definition of "cure rate," like the one I just mentioned,
and do a double-blind study between patients who took the
complete orthodox treatment plan and a second group who
refused all treatments (Note: This would technically not be
a double-blind study, but it would yield valuable data.) The
results of such a study would never be widely publicized,
because orthodox medicine would look very bad.
In the history of medicine, cancer surgery will go down as
one of the most damaging treatments ever perpetuated on an
innocent general public. While it is true that if a person's
cancer has not metastasized, surgery can kill all of the
cancer cells, there are several problems with mindlessly
using cancer surgery.
First, by the time cancer is diagnosed, unless it is benign,
it has probably already spread outside of its original area
and thus cancer surgery does not kill all of the cancer cells.
Let me give a simple metaphor. Suppose you have thousands of
flies on your 10 acre farm. Suppose that most of them are
around the horse corral where there is lots of horse manure.
Suppose one day you take all of the horse manure (which
contains many maggots) and put it in plastic bags (i.e.
surgery) and ship it to a landfill. Will this cure your
fly problem? Not at all. Since all of the flies have not
been killed, it will not take long for the remaining flies
to breed and replace all of the flies and maggots killed
by the plastic bags.
Second, if the cancer has not spread, the patient has so
long to live in most cases, that the cancer can easily be
treated by any number of noninvasive alternative methods.
Virtually all of the top 100 alternative treatments are
extremely effective if the patient has over a year to live.
Thus, even if the cancer is contained, surgery can be a
Third, surgery severs numerous blood arteries, thus blocking
them forever. This means the circulatory system is forever
damaged with numerous blocked arteries and other arteries have
had their blood supply cut off.
Fourth, in a similar manner, surgery does the same thing to
the lymph system. The lymph system is a critical part of the
immune system, as is the circulatory system, and arbitrarily
blocking numerous lymph vessels permanently is not a good thing
for the immune system.
Considering all of the permanent damage done by surgery, it
is extremely rare when surgery is a cancer patient's best option.
