Can Cancer Be Cured or Just Treated?

Updated on October 27, 2017

100 Million For a Cancer Cure

In January 1971, President Nixon declared a war on cancer with the words, "I will also ask for an appropriation of an extra $100 million to launch an intensive campaign to find a cure for cancer...." The result was the National Cancer Act of 1971 (P.L. 92–218).

It’s now forty-six years later and time to wake up. No cure for cancer was ever made manifest with this money—even the American Cancer Society admits that.

Rather, the emphasis continues to be on treating symptoms with expensive radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery, something that was already being done well before Nixon’s 1971 legislation. And guess what? Some statistics show that the incidence of cancer is now higher than ever. At best, as the graph below shows, the rate continues nearly unabated.

They Approve Treatments but Deny Cures

The traditional cancer industry is a political and financial creation of big business. Let’s face it, brutal chemotherapy is the "war on cancer," a billion dollar industry that cannot be stopped. Most doctors, under the American Medical Association’s (AMA) control, are threatened with censure for treating and curing cancer with natural remedies. Why? They are not Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved and never will be. And any unlicensed laymen will be prosecuted for advertising or performing any proven natural cancer cure; that would be practicing medicine without a license.

What Good is the American Cancer Society?

“Everyone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud, and that the National Cancer Institute [NCI] and the American Cancer Society [ACS] are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.”

-- Linus Pauling, Ph.D., two-time Nobel Laureate

Have You Noticed the Silence?

You may not believe viable alternative cancer therapies exist. You may still believe your doctor would have told you about them. Somebody would have told you.

The plain fact is that medical doctors don’t discuss alternative cancer treatments. That's because doctors earn no money by researching or talking about low-cost natural remedies. Natural remedies cannot be patented or sold like traditional medications. Therefore, nobody anywhere has any incentive to examination the viability of natural cancer cures. If a natural, "low-cost" remedy threatens to become popular, fearful warnings are issued by the FDA.

If Cancer Could be Cured, then Everyone Would Know

According to the logic of the late Patrick Swayze, if there were legitimate alternative therapies that really worked, everybody would know about them and the creators “would be very rich, and very famous.”

Like so many, Mr. Swayze was thinking with his emotions. It is apparent he knew nothing of the deceptive politics of the cancer industry, nor of working alternative therapies. Unlike you, he did no research into facts. Without knowledge, it’s easy to dismiss effective alternatives with a single piece of logic (or illogic).

Premise 1: There are effective healthcare remedies that have made their creators rich and famous.

Premise 2: All effective remedies will naturally make their creators rich and famous.

Conclusion: Therefore, all creators of effective cancer remedies gain riches and fame (because cancer is a leading cause of death and millions seek a cure for this dreaded disease.)

The first premise is true, but premise 2 is obviously not true. Inventors certainly don’t have to become rich or famous after discovering something that works. Not all those who do good or spread the truth are rewarded. For example, Nicholas Tesla developed the technology that runs much of our world, but nary a sole knows or cares about him, and he was not rich.

Cancer Cures are Horrible for Business

“There have been many cancer cures, and all have been ruthlessly and systematically suppressed with a Gestapo-like thoroughness by the cancer establishment. The cancer establishment is the not-too-shadowy association of the American Cancer Society, the leading cancer hospitals, the National Cancer Institute, and the FDA. The shadowy part is the fact that these respected institutions are very much dominated by members and friends of members of the pharmaceutical industry, which profits so incredibly much from our profession-wide obsession with chemotherapy.”

-- Robert C. Atkins, M.D., author of The Atkins Diet

Blackout, Suppression, Denial

Any doctor that dares to publish a working alternative to conventional cancer treatments will be blacklisted. We know why, but when did this start?

A fascinating fact is that the attempt to control who should treat cancer started in Europe in the 1700s! Three books discuss this in detail:

1. The Cancer Blackout:- Amended: A History of Denied and Suppressed Remedies, 1762 - 1976 by Nat Morris

2. The Cancer Blackout: Exposing the Official Blacklisting of Beneficial Cancer Research, Treatment, and Prevention by Maurice Natenberg ISBN: 0911238611 c 1959

3. The Cancer Conspiracy: Betrayal, Collusion and the Suppression of Alternative Cancer Treatments by Barry Lynes.

It's obvious that money trumps cures. Another reason to ignore natural cures is that medicine is firmly rooted in the ideas of the French philosopher Rene Descartes (I think, therefore I am). Descartes had a strong influence on scientific methods. Science must be limited to the measurable, to the observable world. He taught that people are very much like machines. Machines break and they need to be fixed; they don’t fix themselves.

This concept implies the use of surgery, moreover it demands it. Therefore, doctors are trained to repair humans with tools and devices, such as surgical procedures, special concoctions, and later, drugs and radiation.

The AMA Takes Roots in a Field of Herbs

Over the last 350 years, this concept of doctors as mechanics became entrenched in allopathic medicine. With the founding of the American Medical Association in 1847, college-trained doctors began to protect their careers and profits by forming medical societies.

These societies, some existing since the very early 1800s, claimed to advance the principles of medicine and science for the good of the public by exposing quack doctors that were rampant in early America. Their efforts weeded out charlatans preying on the sick and desperate. However, some of these uneducated folk-doctors were successfully treating their patients.

Quackery occasions a large pecuniary loss to us… [they] frequently grow rich, where wiser and better men scarcely escape starvation. – Editorial from an 1846 New York Journal of Medicine.

That fact that early Americans depended almost exclusively on folk medicine influenced the Confederate government to order Dr. F. P. Porcher, a Charleston surgeon, to write a medical guide of natural remedies for solders in the field:

A Catalogue of Plants, Native or Naturalized in the Vicinity of New Bern, North Carolina.

There's Power in those Plants

The fact that natural remedies worked only served to promote a medical underground of “grannies” and herb doctors, with their carefully guarded secret remedies. These herb doctors were cutting into the profits of AMA members. Consequently, there was intense opposition to the herbalists throughout America during the 1800s. Finally, the AMA created a Committee on National Legislation in 1899 to push their agenda to outlaw natural remedies.

"Cure My Cancer" is one of many books offering alternative treatments

Rockefeller's Pharmaceuticals

The AMA’s agenda in 1899 caught the attention of a man named John D. Rockefeller. He invested in pharmaceutical companies and needed sales. He was opposed to competition from natural remedies. His plan was simple: completely control medicine. Working through agents, he slowly took control of medical schools and established a universal medical curriculum. No natural “quack” remedies could be taught (those that could cut into his drug company sales).

After graduation, doctors were kept in check with AMA licensing requirements. From the AMA’s founding in 1847 to today’s, quacks and their natural remedies have always been a driving force behind the AMA’s mission to eradicate competition to their business model.

Medicine has some cures, but not for cancer

Allopathic medicine has its benefits. But you must know what they are good at and can fix, and where they fail miserably. They treat cancer and will never cure it.

You must be self-educated if you want to know the whole truth about all cancer therapies! There are many books and websites that can help. Something is wrong with our traditional medical approach to treating cancer! Do your own research. You will discover many alternatives exist and cure!
