Fighting off the lady killer

On February 3rd, 2017

Medicine, we’re told, is feeling victorious about beating breast cancer, now that the incidence of heart disease has overtaken it as the number-one lady killer.

This victory celebration may be premature. While deaths may have decreased by 35 per cent since the early 1970s, the incidence of this form of cancer is going up—by a projected 2 per cent. Breast cancer still accounts for a third of all cancers reported in women; it affects one in eight women and kills about one in six of women diagnosed with the disease every year.

Chemoprevention for breast cancer

Small wonder that US and UK government agencies like the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Britain’s drugs watchdog, are turning to the aromatase inhibitor anastrozole as the new ‘great white hope’ against breast cancer, and urging millions of healthy women to get ‘chemoprevention’.

But this is simply more evidence of a long-standing mindset when it comes to cancer treatment, which argues that combating cancer requires nothing less than all-out nuclear warfare.

In the late 19th century, the response of surgeons to cancer was to cut away huge chunks of healthy tissue as an insurance policy that they’d ‘got it all.’ In head or neck cancer, surgeons removed part of the jawbone; in breast cancer, they removed the breast, lymph nodes and most of the chest wall.

But even in the early part of the last century, if you had cancer of the pelvis or internal organs, you very well might have lost the entire lower half of your body.

While these days the treatments are less mutilating, today’s doctors maintain the notion that every last cancer cell must be cut, burned or chemically blasted away and so prescribe a complex mix of drugs, radiation and surgery to ensure against the return of a single cancerous cell.

This mindset tends to create a Hobson’s choice for every cancer patient between getting killed by the disease or getting killed by the cure.

Not long ago, a doctor returned from an autopsy with the proud announcement that his patient, who’d had widespread disseminated cancer, had died ‘cancer-free’. What he neglected to say was that the patient hadn’t died of cancer—it was the lung disease induced by the murderously high chemotherapy that finally got him.

Advocating chemoprevention is part of this same mindset. By pushing such a program of drugs, the US and UK governments are ignoring the fact that healthy women will then be given a toxic agent that is itself likely to increase their chances of developing osteoporosis, heart attack, stroke, muscle or joint pain and even depression—all this for a drug that might lower the risk of cancer in high-risk women from 4 per cent to 2 per cent.

Calling off the big guns

Dr Richard Evans and Dr Christine Horner, both American surgeons, are two renegades brave enough to challenge the idea that cancer requires an all-out war.

Dr Evans, author of Making the Right Choice, discovered that, in many types of cancer cases, patients opting for conservative surgery alone don’t die a single day sooner than those who also get the chemo or radiation on top of surgery. In other words, he writes, “There is no survival disadvantage to leaving tumour cells alone and simply observing the patient.”

Dr Horner, a plastic surgeon who performs reconstructive surgery after mastectomy, goes one step further. After investigating the medical literature on cancer treatments, she was outraged to discover that many natural foods, spices and supplements have solid scientific evidence of slowing or even eliminating cancer.

One of the safest and most effective cancer killers is turning out to be vitamin C. While the late Nobel laureate Linus Pauling was advocating its use against cancer 40 years ago, it’s taken this long for medicine to catch up.

C is for cancer killer

New evidence from the University of Iowa has confirmed that vitamin C given intravenously is some 500 times more concentrated than when taken orally, and specifically targets cancer by generating hydrogen peroxide in the body, which is lethal only to cancer cells, not healthy tissue.

The vitamin has already passed the test-tube and animal trials, and is now being tested in patients with pancreatic and lung cancers, whose progress will be measured against similar cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation.

Instead of attempting to blast cancer out of the body with the most powerful armaments possible, it’s time to cut the war down to size. Cancer is not a disease requiring a massive external offensive.

All that’s necessary may be to offer the body under attack the gentle tools it needs to heal itself. As with so much of medicine, less is more.

    Great blog, though the one thing I understood that could seriously disadvantage the Vitamin C 'research' now being undertaken, is that it will be administered as an adjuvant. Thus, the patient will still receive chemo and radio and then be measured against those who have chemo and radio only. Research on Pauling's findings that I have seen shows a distinct bias against proposing any treatments that do not include administering also the deadly combinations from conventional thinking in mainstream doctoring, backed by big pharma and greedy governments. I hope I am mistaken? However, I am suspecting that the chances of our health authorities recommending true cures with such things as Vitamin C - or in combination with many other nutrient or plant-based things out there - are very slim. Vitamin C may even be proved to 'fail' due to the administering of chemo or radio alongside - statistcs and darn statistics. I suggest people need to do their own research and stop believing mainstream press about something as important as their long-term health...some chance in our over-worked, over-stressed developed world economies! Thanks for the great work, Lynne...please, please keep it up xx

    Use of the mind to keep the body healthy cannot be underestimated. More and more research is coming out to substantiate this truth. Thank you, Lynne, for all that you do.

    I hope these words get to the right people. I have observed many people afflicted with many different cancer types. In most of those cases they died from the (chemo - radiation - surgical) treatment, rather than the disease, and in most of those cases it was a horrific death that they were sent to - equivalent to torture. In a few of those cases it was obvious that the treatment was grossly inappropriate - as it literally killed the patient within a few days of being administered. Even if there were no natural remedies for cancer - my observations are - that a significant percentage of the treatments being given by "western medical" "Standards of Care" doctors/cancer treatment centers have been of no benefit to the patients that I have known - and only served to bankrupt those patients and their families - and enrich the doctors - or medical centers for which they worked. It is all a total disgrace to what we call "our" medical system.

  4. Is there any research on how effective Buffered Vitamin C powder (4000mg) is?
    After already having done chemo doing anything intravenously is just out of the question as long as I don't absolutely have to, but I still would like to take the high dose Vitamin C as it has shown to have an effect on my cancer cells.

    Thank you for this hopeful article.
    I've been watching Vitamin C for some time now and very thankful to find out the healing properties are real. Sincere Appreciation for sharing this most valuable, life saving information. I will do my part in forwarding your article with others.

    This is very good news at a difficult time here in the US. Keep up the good work Lynne!--You seem to have "The Bond" working very well.

    I believe that Dr Michael Greger has put a very convincing argument for the link between many types of cancer (including breast) and diet, for both cause and treatment. I would recommend that anyone interested in this should take a look at his not-for-profit website, nutritionfacts.org. I don't want this to sound like an advert but I believe he has taken a very even-handed, wholistic (spelling deliberate), evidence based approach that should be at least considered when weighing up this issue. PS: like the website Lynne, thanks!
