Chemo Makes Cancer Worse
November 27, 2012 by Bob Livingston
In the case of cancer, the cure is usually worse than the disease. Practitioners of alternative method understand this. Perhaps this paradigm will one day be understood by conventional medical doctors.
According to a study published in the journal Nature Medicine, researchers have discovered that chemotherapy is actually a catalyst for cancer-cell growth. In men suffering from prostate cancer receiving chemotherapy, researchers found DNA damage in healthy cells. These cells secreted a protein called WNT16B that boosts cancer cell survival.
“The increase in WNT16B was completely unexpected,” said study co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. “WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumor cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy.”
Nelson and his team then confirmed their findings in breast and ovarian cancer tumors. He went on to say the results could lead to research for new and improved methods of treatment.
Nelson did not point toward known effective natural cancer treatment options like turmeric and ginger, which have consistently been found to shrink tumors and combat the spread of cancer cells. He did not mention vitamin D supplementation, which has been shown to be an effective treatment for many cancers and other diseases. And he did not mention that cancer sufferers should forgo all types of sugars, which feed cancer like dry timber feeds a forest fire.
Of course, using natural supplements and avoiding sugars does not feed the pharmaceutical industry and the medical industrial complex.
