When I was in Medical School (Albert Einstein College of Medicine, class of 1970), cancer survival meant that the patient had been recurrence-free for 5 years. And was still alive. Period.
There’s a war going on and it’s not the War on Cancer. That mythic “War” is not meant to be won. It’s meant to be lost by you and me with vast profits accruing to the Merchants of Death, the Princes of Big Pharma and their liege vassals, Oncologists.
Survival: a political football with enormous economic consequences.
Survival sounds simple: I got cancer, I lived to tell the tale. Cure sounds even simpler: I got cancer, I lived to tell the tale and now I do not have cancer anymore.
It is not so simple. The amount of money involved is, literally, beyond comprehension. Further, the money can only be earned if you are kept in the dark about your real choices and your real options.
let’s face it. If you knew that chemotherapy did not work, that the “cancer survival statistics” are a sham and a well-kept secret you were never meant to know, you probably would not elect chemotherapy or any other palliative therapy, especially in the face of so many natural, effective and gentle treatments that actually do work.
Cancer survival is where the rubber of profit hits the road of deceit.
Some definitions: If your cancer came back on the first day of year 6, well, you were still counted as a cancer survivor and whatever you did to get there was listed in the “Produced a Cure” column. Unless, of course, what you did was NOT chemotherapy, surgery or radiation (the 3 Weird Sisters of Allopathic Medicine, Ms. Poison, Madame Slash and Widow Burn – that’s a literary reference to Shakespeare’s Macbeth, for those of you who like that sort of thing). See, for example, http://chetday.com/spontaneousremissions.htm or http://www.plim.org/SponteneousHealing.html or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spontaneous_remission
There is no way, you see, that the wildly profitable, and wildly destructive, cancer industry could admit what it knows full well:
Chemotherapy does NOT cure cancer, nor is it expected to: it is an adjunctive, palliative (temporarily helpful, tumor-shrinking, symptom-reducing) expedient despite what patients are routinely told by oncologists who, unlike most doctors, actually get to keep a cut of the stunningly outrageous prices insurance companies pay for the doctor to poison the cancer patient, destroying what is left of their already damaged immune system that allowed them to get cancer in the first place. http://www.naturalnews.com/023689.html
The American Cancer Society used to issue a pamphlet on chemotherapy which stated clearly that the cure rate expected from chemotherapy was in the 3-4% range under optimal conditions and that chemotherapy was a palliative treatment. Searching high and low on the internet, I can not find that information now and the pamphlet is packed away in my library, currently stored in a huge number of boxes in a warehouse which I built to house it here at the Phase II facility of the Valley of the Moon Eco Demonstration Project, www.MyValleyoftheMoon.org. That is not surprising, given that the American Cancer Society’s charter requires it to disband in the event that a cure for cancer is found. (http://www.newlifefamilychiropractic.com/Cancer).
What I did find, however, is this terribly important statement from the National Cancer Institute’s website: “A systematic review of 17 randomized trials found that the addition of one or more chemotherapy drugs to a chemotherapy regimen in the attempt to intensify the treatment improved tumor response but had no effect on OS [overall survival – REL] Jones D, Ghersi D, Wilcken N: Addition of drug/s to a chemotherapy regimen for metastatic breast cancer. Cochrane Database Syst Rev 3: CD003368, 2006. www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/breast/…/page7, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16856005
So even if you undergo more life-destroying chemotherapy than usual in the treatment of breast cancer, your overall survival rate DOES NOT IMPROVE! Why do it? Because, to be crass, your doctor makes money if you do but does not make money if you do not and, for whatever reason, you trust your doctor’s advice, no matter how self serving.
If, on the other hand, he/she WOULD use chemotherapy for him/herself, then he/she is a propagandized well-meaning fool. Take your pick.
Breast cancer patients, in general, tend to do pretty well for about 4 years after chemotherapy, surgery and radiation, or whatever toxic mix they receive. Then, during the 4th year, they often have recurrences of the original disease, with one difference: increased virulence.
The previously treated cancer usually did get smaller, sometimes so small that it was pronounced “undetectable” and the cancer patient was told that there was “no sign of the cancer”. When the disease returns, however, the cancer has been altered by the “treatment” and has become far more virulent because it has literally been educated by contact with chemotherapy and/or radiation. The cells that were susceptible to the treatments, barbaric and brutal as they are, died off. The remaining cells now have two survival advantages: first, they have been genetically altered and selected for survival and have a more robust survival capacity because of a Darwinian “Survival of the Fittest” and second, they are growing and multiplying in a body whose natural defenses were under par in the first place (or the cancer would never have developed) and which has had its immune defenses intentionally devastated by the cancer “treatment[s]” themselves.
Thus, the more robust and defense-defying cancer cells are now evading destruction by the body and the recurrence is a surprise only to the patient. The oncologist has seen it before. Again and again and again.
So what did the Cancer Industry do? They got really, really clever. Since they did not want to cure cancer, only to profit from it, they changed the definition of “survival” from being alive for 5 years after the cancer diagnosis and “cure” to being alive 5 years without a recurrence to being alive (or alive without a recurrence for “cure”) for 4 years!
Mirabele! More cancer survivors! More Cancer “”CURES”. Go, Early Detection (e.g., mammograms which cause cancer!) Go, Prevention (redefined as Early Detection (e.g., mammograms which cause cancer!) Go, Pink Ribbons! Go, Kentucky Fried Chicken in pink buckets saying “Each Bucket Makes A Difference –bucketsforthecure.com”! http://www.bucketsforthecure.com
But wait! 4 year survival/cure is not good enough anymore! Nope. You see, what allopathic medicine wants next is a Breast Cancer Vaccine! Yes, something which, like all vaccines, will actually spread the disease. MMMMMM! Just listen to the salivary glands of the vaccine giants and their bankers working! MM, MMMMMM! You can hear the depopulationists’ juices running, too.
Oh, wait! Just one set of salivary glands there. They are the same folks. The salivation is so active because the double benefits of more money and more cancer deaths are working together so well!
How? Well, look at this article, taken verbatim, from Fierce Vaccines, a vaccine industry e-publication:
Breast cancer vax set for large-scale testing
A breast cancer vaccine spearheaded by the military is due to begin large-scale clinical trials early this year in preparation for FDA submission, according to a recent report by the American Forces Press Service.
Galena Biopharma ($GALE) has picked up rights to the therapeutic vaccine, which combines the E-75 peptide with the HER2/neu protein and an immune system stimulant, and was developed by the Cancer Vaccine Development Program at the San Antonio Military Medical Center. The vaccine is designed to spur immune attacks on HER2-driven cancers, and Galena’s upcoming trials for the treatment aim to combat recurrence of breast cancer, according to the the AFPS article.
Outcomes from earlier phase testing in disease-free cancer survivors at risk of recurrence were promising: “We cut recurrence in half,” center director and principal investigator, Army Col. Dr. George Peoples, told the AFPS. The new studies in 700 to 1,000 patients are expected to take about 5 years to complete, with the endpoint being recurrence after three years. [Emphasis added – REL]
Galena (formerly RXi) acquired additional patent rights to the E-75 vaccine, which it has dubbed NeuVax, from the military in July 2011. The company, which is based in Portland, OR, announced in November it is working with Genentech on a mid-size trial studying NeuVax in combination with Genentech’s blockbuster breast cancer drug Herceptin in 300 breast cancer patients currently not eligible for Herceptin therapy.
Dr. Peoples told the AFPS the center also has conducted a successful small trial of the vaccine and Herceptin together in which the recurrence rate was zero. In addition, the center has completed a trial with the vaccine in prostate cancer survivors. Prostate cancer cells also express the HER2 protein. – Janet Aker
I suggest you pay special attention to the last half of the last sentence of paragraph 3: “…with the endpoint being recurrence after three years.”
What that means is that the vaccine will be touted as a success because there will be few recurrences in 3 years. Women will get the vaccine in huge numbers, to huge profits for Galena Biopharma ($GALE) or whomever owns the company when the vaccine goes on the market.
Then, I promise you, there will be an INCREASE in the number of recurrences after the 3 year period (I would actually bet on that!) which will take years to be documented and might, or might not (I would bet not) result in the vaccine being removed from the list of approved drugs by the FDA.About half of all FDA approved drugs, by the way, are removed from the market by the FDA within about 5 years because they are too dangerous for even the Fraud and Death Administration to permit on the market.
During those 5 years, of course, incalculable mayhem and, yes, murder, will have been committed upon us and our loved ones.
I need only remind you that Vioxx(R), quite probably responsible for, some say, 27,000 to 55,000 unnecessary drug-caused deaths is back on the market and now APPROVED FOR USE IN CHILDREN!
Let me also remind you that not one single vaccine, not one, has ever been shown to be EITHER safe OR effective through scientific study against placebo although it is required under US law (which, apparently, the FDA is far, far above) that any vaccine on the market be shown to be BOTH safe and effective. Not one is. Not one.
Vaccines either contain “trace” amounts of mercury or, in the case of the flu vaccines, large amounts of it. Vaccines commonly contain aluminum, foreign DNA form sources like monkeys and aborted human fetuses, neurotoxins, antibiotics, agents known to be associated with sterility, viruses known to be associated with leukemia and other cancers, and THEY DO NOT WORK!!!
In Finland, the totally unnecessary flu vaccine caused children to develop narcolepsy, a life long debilitating disease with no known conventional cure. The Government of Finland has taken responsibility for the life long medical care costs of these children – and continued to demand that its citizens receive this dangerous and worthless nostrum. http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5g1doyMOnXuq77VZHACz_rcbX99BA
The Journal of the American Medical Association, as deeply in bed with Big Pharma as the American Cancer Society, published an article in favor of mandatory participation in vaccine clinical trials because not many people want to do that, but it would be “For the common good”, “like jury duty or the draft”. http://www.infowars.com/ama-make-participation-in-vaccine-trials-mandatory/
So I ask you, personally, “Who owns your body? Who owns your mind? Who gets to control the flow of information that you get, that your doctor gets, and the options that you have for your own body-related choices?”
The literally murderous policies of the FDA, CDC and FTC are, quite literally, enslaving: these agencies own your body, they control what you know and, hence, what you think and what you do.

A Half Year after Fukushima…
SOURCE: Radiation in Japan: Hot spots and blind spots, The Economist, October 8, 2011
Iitate, 45 km from meltdowns] offers an extreme example of how difficult it will be to recover from the disaster. That is mainly because of the enormous spread of radiation. […]
Outside [the chief of Iitate’s village council, Mr. Chohei Sato’s] house, however, a reading of the equivalent of 150 millisieverts a year left your correspondent strangely reluctant to inhale.
Crest the hill into the village of Iitate, and the reading on a radiation dosimeter surges eightfold—even with the car windows shut. […]
Radiation levels in the hills are so high that villagers dare not go near them. […]

Report on Gen. Bert’s Broken Hip
Vitamin C Wars: Your Money or Your Life
…first ride up the lift, first run, first day, Bert fell and broke his left hip and did some serious damage to his femur. We were helicopter-lifted to the Clinica Alemana in Santiago…. and that’s where the Vitamin C war began… and some Chilean physicians and therapists learned about advanced, natural health care…
General Bert and I are in Chile, sourcing Southern Hemisphere organic-and-better foods for North America and beyond, to replace the Fukishima-contaminated foods of the entire Northern Hemisphere. (Yes, it is that bad! And North America’s 40+ leaking reactors are making it worse.)
While here in Chile we thought we’d enjoy the winter snows in the high Andes and catch some skiing, which we dearly love and which, truth to tell, Panama lacks totally, even in the temperate Eternal Spring of the Highlands where we have sited the Valley of the Moon Eco Demonstration Project, www.MyVAlleyoftheMoon.org.
First ride up the lift, first run, first day, Bert fell and broke his left hip and did some serious damage to his femur. We were helicopter-lifted to the Clinica Alemana in Santiago….
When the same thing happened 10 years ago in Wyoming, in order to get the IV Vitamin C (50 Grams every 12 hours) and other nutrients into him immediately following surgery, I had to smile sweetly and threaten to “Sue the S***” out of the surgeon if he refused to order that treatment.
After telling me that the use of nutrients to speed healing was “not how we do it here,” Dr. Alva Forbes, the orthopedic surgeon for the US ski team, saw the burning beauty of my logic, illuminated brilliantly in he harsh glare of my very serious threat and allowed as how he would do it that way, this time.
So I was prepared for the same thing this time, but in Spanish.
Imagine our delight and surprise when the doctors all, to a man and woman, said, “Well, I never heard of that, but why not? Vitamins can only be good, after all!” It was like music to our ears…
The plan was that as soon as the surgery was over, Bert would receive the first of the 12 hour IV bags, each containing 50 Grams of Vitamin C and other nutrients including calcium, magnesium, biotin, Vitamins A, D3, etc.
Great plan except for the fact that that first bag contained 500mg, 1/100th of the required dose, of Vitamin C.
You could hear it, clear as day: somebody in the Pharmacy department said “50 GRAMS???? Has Dr. So and so lost his MIND???” And then they “corrected” the doctor’s “mistake”.
Bert not only had his wife with him, he had his own MD. That stands for “Medical Dragon” Along for the ride. And she roared.
Two and a half hours later, another bag arrived from the pharmacy with not 50 Grams, but 14 Grams of Vitamin C because, allegedly that was the entire stock of Vitamin C for the entire hospital and they would have to buy more in the AM.
What happened next was that we got told that there is nowhere in Chile where that much Vitamin C can be purchased.
So now, with the good will and wishes of the entire medical and nursing staff, who are totally astounded that a hip surgery patient has zero pain, zero inflammation and zero complications from the meds that generally mess up people in the post surgical period, and acknowledging that it is unheard-of to see this kind of post surgical wellness so it has to be due to the Vitamin C he received, they have arbitrarily reduced his 24 hour dose from 100 Grams to – ready for this? – 10 Grams, 1/10 the dose that I, the nutritional medicine expert, have told them, the totally uneducated-in-nutritional-medicine doctors that the patient needs.
No reason in particular. No fears of toxicity, no evidence that it is bad, dangerous or does not work.So much for “evidence based medicine” which is, all too often, based on exactly the evidence “I already believe in or get a nice reward for believing in.”
Now, to confuse the picture, they have no idea about the nutrients and anti-inflammatories which Bert is being given by the Dragon Doc, me.
So they are not going to realize that their absurd 10 Grams of Vitamin C in 24 hours is not doing the trick.
But my other nutrients are covering the inflammatory waterfront and the reason that he simply cannot get an infection is because I am dosing him with nanosilver — never travel without a supply!
People with broken hips die from the consequences of inflammation: pain and subsequent lack of movement, drugs for these situations and the terminal stints in the nursing homes that result where they go downhill, get under stimulated and over medicated and die in short order.
Unless they get post operative IV nutrition.
Why not try it? Why not demand it?
Because then Big Pharma is not in control of your life and death. You are.
Because then the government has to keep making payments to you when you are old instead of stopping the payment when you conveniently die prematurely.
And then the money for the absurd drugs and obscene markups stays in your pocket, never making it to the Uber Cartel’s pockets.
So here, in the Clinica Alemana in Santiago, Chile General Bert and I are engaged in a skirmish in the great, and deadly, Vitamin C wars.
The Fraud and Death Administration, whose tentacles reach very far, has already declared that IV Vitamin C is an unapproved NEW DRUG!
As such, it is subject to severe restriction leading to sharp price increases and further demonization. After all, in the land of malpractice litigation, what doctor is willing to risk using an “unapproved drug”?
What can you do about it?
Take the following Action Items demanding the FDA abandon its disastrous anti-nutritional supplement Guidelines and honor the law passed by Unanimous Congressional Consent in 1994, DSHEA, the Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act, which says that supplements are foods and, as such, their use, form and manner are totally up to you.
You may recall that General Bert took a tumble and while all the King’s Horses and all the King’s Men did not get into the act, two trauma surgeons, a helicopter airlift pilot and nurse and 6 days in the hospital later, he emerged on a walker with a much stiffer, swollen and difficult-to-move hip and thigh than he should have.
Why do I say that? Because despite their great lip service and lovely personal bedside manners, the doctors at Santiago’s famed (and very nicely managed) Clinica Alemana gave me a lot of ‘look ‘em straight in the eye when you lie’ nonsense about giving Bert the Vitamin C that he needed (50 G every 12 hour in an IV bag) but wound up giving him a ridiculous 10 G every 24 hours, or 1/20th the dose that he needed to prevent the pain and swelling of a broken hip and the following traumatic surgery.
I was told that there was no IV Vitamin C in Chile (ABSURD) and other fantastic nonsense. When I complained (loudly, you can be sure!), I was finally told that the truth was that the gerontologist who told me that he knew NOTHING about vitamins and minerals but that he knew they could not hurt anything, so why not do what I suggested was the one who wrote the order for a dose that Gen. Bert could have safely exceeded by MOUTH.
The result, of course, was that he had far more difficulty and movement restriction than he did 10 years ago when he did the same thing to his right thigh bone and hip. That happened in the US and my deadly serious threat to sue the surgeon worked like a charm – Gen. Bert got his 100 G per day of IV vitamin C.
Note: it is not the hip surgery that kills the elderly who suffer these fractures: it is the pain and immobility which restricts their motion and leads to complications, incarceration in nursing homes and, ultimately, death. All of which would not occur if enough Vitamin C were used!!!!
But WAIT! There’s more. Gen. Bert tends toward a very low blood pressure on his own. That is why salt is essential, and in pretty good quantities, too, for him to eat along with lots of water. He also lost a huge amount of blood during the accident and the surgery so his hematocrit was low – dangerously low. In fact, the recommendation of the doctors was to give him several transfusions. On his behalf, I refused. Why not give him iron, I said, and let the body create more hemoglobin, instead of exposing him to all the dangers of transfusions?
The doctors agreed and ordered an iron supplement by mouth. The hemoglobin started to crawl up and Gen. Bert was spared the transaction. But we all agreed that the supplement was critically important to his well-being at this point.
The iron supplement he was given in the hospital did not make it home with him so since last Friday he has been without iron supplements. He cannot eat red meat because he gets gout when he does, which is sad because he is an enthusiastic red meat sort of guy.
So no supplement, no meat, and not enough spinach to put in your left eye, organic or otherwise. And the robust and vigorous Gen. Bert began to fail.
I emailed the hospital: no response. I took a prescription they had given me “just in case” to the two pharmacies I can reach from the hotel we are staying in and showed it to them. In both cases the girls behind the counter looked at me blankly and told me that they do not have iron. NONSENSE!!
As the few days wore on, he became deathly pale, terribly weak, frightfully cold and could not stay awake for very long.
I was very worried and deeply angry with myself because I ALWAYS travel with my blood pressure cuff and stethoscope – Always, that is, until this time.
But, I said to myself, that is not a problem because today we are going to pay a nurse from the Clinica Alemana 22,000 Chilean Pesos (about $44 US) to change the dressing from the operation in a visit to the hotel. She will, I reasoned, have a stethoscope and cuff with her. She was his nurse in the hospital and she will see the change in him and help him get the support he needs, including the dietary supplement which could, literally, save his life.
His pulse was hard to find, weak and thready. His heart beat was irregular and his status was deteriorating. But she’ll be here with the scope and pressure cuff shortly.
NOT SO! She walked in, smiled, obviously did not look clinically at her patient, whom she had nursed when he was in the Clinic, changed his bandages, smiled again and left. Gen Bert was, in my clinical judgment, in grave danger of a stroke, a myocardial infarction (heart attack) or death.
Low blood pressure, low blood volume, not enough iron? Time for folk medicine, pure and simple.
I brought bags of salted nuts and potato chips, neither of which are health foods, and presented them to Gen. Bert with the instruction to eat all he could hold and drink as much water as he could.
I poured ¼ teaspoon of salt in the palm of his hand, told him to lap it up and drink water. I went to the nearby store and bought red meat, which he cannot eat, but which is a dense source of iron and protein, and made a soup with organic onions, mushrooms, garlic, plenty of salt and cooked up a broth that I gave him no option NOT to drink, despite the fact that it will most likely give him gout. I gave him colchicine, a very old remedy for gout, to prevent the development knowing that he may get it anyway.
But you don’t die from gout. You can die from lack of oxygen because of lack of iron!
And you know what? He pinked right up, over the several hours the above took. His arrhythmia went away and his heartbeat became normal again. Color returned to his skin and life returned to his eyes.
Now there is a good side to the story: I badgered the nurse into calling the Physical Therapist who was coming tonight anyway, into bringing the iron preparation he needed this evening. 20 little bottles of iron supplementation walked in the door when he arrived. And I was, of course, very appreciative, but also very apprehensive about what was in the process of happening: Gen. Bert was shutting down through lack of good planning and follow-through.
Why am I telling you this? Several reasons: first of all, if someone you care about is in hospital, they are in grave danger unless there is someone staying with the patient AT ALL TIMES running interference, reading labels, demanding, yes, demanding, to know what is happening to the patient and why. It does not matter whether the doctors and nurses like you. It matters whether you can protect the person in the hospital because they cannot.
Accept nothing. Question everything. Hospitals are dangerous places.
Second, Do not discard what you already know for what the doctors and nurses seem to know. The salt water I gave Gen. Bert increased the volume of his circulatory system, apparently increased his blood pressure and may have saved his life. It wasn’t medicine. It was folklore applied to a medical situation, rapidly becoming an emergency.
Third, Do not discard what you already do despite what the doctors and nurses tell you. Gen. Bert received 6 capfuls of Silver Sol Nano Solution by mouth per day. Hospitals are dirty places and the infections people get in hospitals kill nearly 100,000 people in the US alone. I was determined that Gen. Bert was not among them.
I told no one. I just gave it to him.
I continued to give him the nutritional powerhouse array of supplements he receives every day, but when no one was looking. I told no one. I just gave it to him.
Fourth, Do not believe in the omnipotence, competence or diligence of the medical staff. Sometimes your skepticism will be unwarranted, but, going back to tip Number 1, all kinds of mistakes occur day in, day out. And they can be lethal.
Food. There was nothing to heal with or get well on in a single meal of the Clinica. Bring in food that the patient will like and will appreciate and that you know is wholesome. Say it is for you. Pretend you are taking it home to your pet iguana. Whatever you need to say, say it. Whatever you need to do, do it. Just get decent, tasty, nutrient dense food into your loved one or friend. And get out of that hospital the very minute that you can.
More to follow.
Yours in health and freedom,
PS: One more thing: I bought a stainless steel urinal for the General, called, in Spanish, a pavo masculinio, or male duck. It had three small holes in the body of it. When I called Diamed, the store that sold it to me, to ask them to replace it, that said that they did not have another one, that they did not care about my $45US, that they did not have to do anything about it and it was my bad luck.
So now we have a male duck with holes in it, but it is stainless steel!!! Tip number 5: take nothing for granted. REL
