Chemo Could Spread Cancer

August 7, 2012 by  

Chemo Could Spread Cancer
Chemo kills cancer, but in doses high enough it kills people too.

For decades the medical establishment’s go-to treatment for cancer has been small doses of chemo paced out in cycles.

Doctors have long believed that the low doses of chemo can kill cancer cells while allowing healthy cells to rebuild between treatments. Unfortunately, this heavy reliance on chemo has meant that any gains in survival rate among cancer victims have been offset by terrible sickness and a low quality of life during treatment.

Now, new research published in Nature Medicine shows that chemotherapy can actually be extremely counterproductive in treating cancer as it could spur healthy cells to release a compound that actually stimulates cancer growth.

According to the researchers, the effect is caused by the impact of chemotherapy drugs on healthy connective tissue cells called fibroblasts which when blasted with chemo can pump out a cancer facilitating protein at a rate of 30 times more than they normally would.

“Cancer cells inside the body live in a very complex environment or neighborhood. Where the tumor cell resides and who its neighbors are influence its response and resistance to therapy,” said senior author Peter S. Nelson, M.D., a member of the Hutchinson Center’s Human Biology Division.

Nelson contends that the reasoning behind believing chemo is an effective treatment against all forms of cancer is not faulty. Chemo kills cancer, but in doses high enough to irradiate cancer from a person in one blast, the patient would certainly die.

“In the laboratory we can ‘cure’ most any cancer simply by giving very high doses of toxic therapies to cancer cells in a petri dish. However, in people, these high doses would not only kill the cancer cells but also normal cells and the host,” Nelson said.

As a result the small-dose option is used for solid cancer tumors such as those of the breast, prostate, lung and colon by practitioners of mainstream medicine, leading to a chance that the cancer could spread more rapidly through the body in some cases than if no treatment were given.

Alternative medicine has long shunned chemotherapy as a viable option for cancer treatment because of its harmful effect on the rest of the body and immune system.

    Perhaps in some people, chemo could spread the cancer. But, it’s a known fact that people have various reactions to treatments and drugs. Chemo cured my cancer twenty-six and a half years ago. The major effect of the treatment on me was that it made me so sick that when it came time for my twice a month treatments, I was put in the hospital over night instead of out patient treatment. My doctor’s main concern was that because of how sick I got I might not show up for my treatment.

      Yes, what good is a dozen years of education, more intership upon that, and whatever years of experience have passed.

      The gas jockey down the street who heard a consperacy theory knows better.

        Robert Smith – “…what good is a dozen years of education, more intership(sp) upon that, and whatever years of experience have passed after that.” …Indeed, what good?
        What good is it if the education and training is packed with misinformation and disinformation? They call themselves scientists and have a terrible death rate – compared to Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s protocols which work good – but would never question the income generated. They are taught that chemo, surgery and radiation are the only scientific therapeutic tools in existence (only because the pharmaceutical companies that make the poison bought the legislators needed get laws passed to make anything and everything else illegal.
        Besides that, It’s common knowledge that every chemo treatment kills off large numbers of vulnerable cancer cells…at first. That always produces (relative) remission. But, some resistant cancer cells always survive in the patient. Which traditional medicine makes no effort to destroy. (It might stop the choruses of ,”My god how the money rolls in, rolls in. My god how the money rolls in.”)
        Eventually, the burden of resistant cancer cells supersedes the load of vulnerable cancer cells. They don’t change anything in their treatments. But they know that (barring a miracle) the patient is finished…doomed. The only question at this point is how tough the person is and how long they can gut it out before they quit hoping and die.
        In effect, it is organized…legalized…government sanctioned and abetted, assisted and prolonged murder.
        Lots of people presume this is laudable – how about you? After all they’ve done everything they can to treat the patient. CAN DO – legally…and required.
        But, not everything there is to do. CTCA yearly accepts hundreds of patients the traditional cancer centers give up on, tell them to go home and get their affairs in order. CTCA ten proceeds to heal and cure them to live healthy, productive, beloved and thankful lives. I KNOW PERSONALLY – MY WIFE (and many others I’ve met in Zion, IL.)
        There have been hundreds of cancer cures developed and blocked by BigPharma’s lapdogs at FDA . There are other places that are curing cancer on a regular basis with food. They’ll most likely all be shut down by your president…and his ACA death care system.
        They’re gonna make sure as many folks as possible die in utter, toxic agony…with the best care available flowing through every tube they can find a vein for.
        TA, TA.

    Anybody can go on Google and find, repeatedly, that chemo is effective only against three different kinds of cancer. Doctors will give it to you for every kind of cancer even if they know that it will have no effect on your cancer, but might even shorten your life. Doctors make tons of money from chemo, and they will give it to you even if they know it might kill you faster. Check it out on Google.

    This info will disappear from peoples minds fairly quick – normal. It may be true, it may be questionably true or it could be a result that was necessary to maintain their research grant money. Chemo therapy has been used for decades just as radiation treatment. Now think about it – how much money has been made off the various treatments for cancer over the past fifty years? Who would be willing to relinquish that cash cow? Who knows but there may be some very simple cures for just about any cancer and they are simply not being used since they would cancel out the steady, reliable profit margins. Sound crazy or could it possibly be just as true as the info on chemo therapy just released?

    • Mike in MI

      What’s worse is the myriad parade of “Run for Life”, “Walk for the CURE”, etc. you know the various and sundry Cancer “Cure” drives. Don’t give them a stinking dime. If they wanted to find a cancer cure they would have one by now – 40 years and counting. THEY JUST WANT TO COLLECT YOUR MONEY, if you’re silly enough to give it to THEM.
      Give it, you will be blessed in return – it’s a universal law. Just don’t pass a penny through your fingers to do evil – it makes you complicit with them.

      • Mike in MI

        I meant, “Give it where it will help someone locally or to a health foundation.”

  • scared

    Yes and all the donations and funding for cancer research. There will never be a cure that’s stated. What would all those huge organizations do?? Research is big business and they don’t want it ever to stop!

  • ArkansasRebel

    I can’t cite the article but I read that 90% of physicians would not have chemo if they had cancer. What does that tell you? And what have they known that they weren’t telling us?

  • Fedup!

    The FDA giving a crap about what is in our food might be a good start!

    Interesting Article …

    My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus, pureed
    it and took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in
    the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for
    Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went
    from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she
    will not need to see him for 3 months.

    Several years ago I met a man who gave me a copy of an article,
    entitled “Asparagus For Cancer” printed in the Cancer News Journal,
    December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me.
    I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to
    health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned of the
    discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure
    cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have
    accumulated a number of favorable case histories. Here are a few

    Case No. 1,
    A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin’s disease (cancer of the
    lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of
    starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any
    signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous

    Case No. 2,
    A successful businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the
    bladder for 16 years.
    After years of medical treatments, including radiation without
    improvement, he began taking asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations
    revealed that his bladder tumor
    had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

    Case No. 3,
    On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating
    table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was
    inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless.
    On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately
    started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs
    of the cancer had disappeared. He is now back at his regular business

    Case No. 4,
    A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She
    developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting
    specialist as advanced.
    Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy, the skin specialist
    said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions. This woman
    reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease,
    which had started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney
    stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an
    inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of
    this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.

    I was not surprised at this result as `The elements of materia
    medica’, edited in1854 by a Professor at the University of
    Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for
    kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power
    of asparagus in dissolving stones. (Note the dates!)

    We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has
    interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore
    appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a
    large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical
    skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

    For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using. Fresh or
    canned asparagus can be used. I have corresponded with the two leading
    caners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these
    brands contain no pesticides or preservatives. Place the cooked
    asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree. Store in the
    refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning
    and evening. Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks. It
    can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This
    suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger
    amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

    As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent.’

    Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as
    a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to
    suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my
    wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have
    blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.

    The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in
    the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in
    all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these
    improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink. As a biochemist, I
    have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the
    proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in
    better with the latest theories about cancer.

    Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are
    believed to be active in controlling cell growth.

    For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a
    substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its
    action on cancer and in acting as a general
    body tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we
    suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from
    using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US
    National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food
    containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body’s most
    potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

    Just a side note… In case you are wondering why this has not been
    made public, there is no profit in curing cancer!

    Please send this article to everyone in your address book. The most
    unselfish act one can ever do is paying forward all the kindness one
    has received.

      Congratulations, KB -
      and GOD BLESS you greatly.
      You are tremendously courageous and able. Believe every day for Gods cover and protection and continuous supply to those who supply you. It works when He’s behind something.

    The average cancer patient generates $1.3 million in revenue for the cancer “industry.” Do you think they want you to be healed by something that costs pennies a day?

    There are many cures available in addition to asparagus. A few are graviola, artemisinin, baking soda, iodine, and DIM. We have seen the first three cure various types of cancer. Most of the people were terminal with doctor’s treatments. There are numerous newsletters available with more information.

    I am a cancer survivor! I had breast cancer 9 1/2 years ago! I had surgery and chemo. I thought for sure the chemo would kill me! I lost so much weight that my pants “literally” fell off of me. I was so weak, I could hardly walk. I had to crawl up the stairs to go to bed. I had to be hospitalized after each treatment. I couldn’t eat and could only sip water. After each treatment I became dehydrated and had to get IV fluids everyday for 5 days. I took anti nausea pills so I wasn’t nauseated but the pain in my stomach was beyond description. After the first treatment they lowered my dosages by 10% but it didn’t help. I truly felt that the chemo was going to kill me. And now I am on what I call “the medical merry go round”. I’ve had so many cancer scares since, I’ve lost track. I had a precancerous condition in my other breast 6 months after my initial diagnosis. Later I had a nodule on my lung, it was benign. I have two lesions on my spine. They can’t biopsy them but assume they are benign because they haven’t grown. I have many nodules on my thyroid that I have to have checked every year. I can’t even remember everything but now I have a spot on my eye that they say might be metastasis from my cancer. So I go back to the eye specialist next month to see if it’s grown. It’s crazy! My husband did a lot of research and has got me taking a bunch of vitamins and my doctor (a new one) is checking my levels quite often. Would I do chemo again? I really don’t know, but I think I’d try the asparagus thing first.

    Asparagus? Sounds like another internet myth. I heard of magnetic treatments and other treatments not legal in the US and none of them work. I am not a doctor but I saw my friend die of pancreatic cancer and how the radiation treatment and chemotherapy weakened him. I lost another friend who said the chemo was poisoning him in an attempt to kill the cancer while weakening him.
    I don’t know what cures cancer but these non medical quack treatments don’t work either while fooling the patient to think they’ll get better.

    The Gerson method has been used since the 30′s.
    Naturapaths have bucked the system, often goin g south ofg the border to help people.
    Cleasing, purifying and nourshing bodies with the minerqals in organic form that used to be in the soil is a good set of protocols to think on , Page , Dr CChristopher, Dr. Jensen, Dr, Kelley, Dr. Walker–have34 all made contributioins to the haling and eradication of cancer. Legallyh, I can tezch this. There is a grat dseal of censorship.
    Viktoras Kalvisskzs, Ann Wigmore, Paul Ck are some of the people still alive who are doing such remarkable things.
