THIS IS QUITE LONG, BUT VERY IMPORTANT!
*** THERE IS A LINK IN THIS ARTICLE, WHERE YOU CAN CHECK YOUR DOCTOR OR HOSPITAL OR CLINIC TO SEE HOW MUCH MONEY THE BIG PHARMA CARTELS ARE GIVING THEM EACH YEAR!!
PHARMACEUTICAL CARTEL KEEPING THE CURE FOR CANCER FROM THE PUBLIC. THEY ARE MAKING MORE MONEY, AND KILLING MORE PEOPLE THAN THE DRUG LORDS OF THE WORLD.
Did you know that there is a cure for cancer, and it’s 100% natural, and that the pharmaceutical companies DO NOT want you to know about it? That’s true. I will show you the 100% natural cure and will also expose the doctors, hospitals, clinics and all others who are PAID by the pharmaceutical companies to push these harmful drugs and chemicals (Chemo) on the public. The big Pharma companies also pay doctors and scientists to give seminars and speeches about their products. There is a link that I will publish, where you can look up your hospital, clinic, and doctors—it shows how much money is given to them and from which companies.
My husband heard the three scariest words “You have cancer” almost a month ago. We live close to Johns Hopkins Hospital, which is known as one of the best. He went through their factory line type process – biopsy, PET and then met with the Oncology Team at Kimmel Cancer Center of Johns Hopkins. Each oncologist had a mini speech. I felt like we had been placed in a play — all of the medical team knew their scripts, and we sat and listened intently, holding onto their every word.
I turned to the head oncologist and asked “What is my husband’s prognosis?” I had read that his type of cancer and where it’s located, made the treatment plan a long and very invasive process. I read that they would cut most everything out in the neck area, leaving him with a new microphone type voice box. I read that he would need months of radiation and chemotherapy. I also read that the patients who complied with this regimen usually only lived a couple of years, if that long. I also read that the treatment is what ultimately killed them.
After I asked my question, the doctor put his hand on my shoulder and said “Oh, we are going to cure him!” REALLY?
As soon as we found out that my husband had cancer, we began searching for alternate treatment plans. That’s when I stumbled upon an amazing thing. I found out that cancer cells cannot survive without sugar. There is a diet called the Ketogenic Diet. I will put sources in this article, so that you can vet this diet and see that there are incredible success stories from people who were told that they had only months to live.
I saw that NIH ran numerous clinical trials on the Ketogenic Diet for the treatment of cancer, and that they were very surprised at much of the data. I believe that they did these clinical trials to keep an eye on this “natural” cancer treatment and preventative, because of the billions of dollars made by the pharmaceutical companies. You can be sure that NIH received millions of dollars a year by the big pharma companies.
In 1999, after complaining to her GP for a year, that something was wrong with her, my mother called an ambulance herself. They took her to a hospital in Bethesda, MD. The doctors immediately did a CT-Scan of her brain. They saw a very large mass growing in the area of her brain that controlled speech and emotions, among other things.
Her GP had told her that she was just depressed and nervous from the passing of my father two years before. He did not take her seriously, when she kept complaining of numbness in her nose and face. She began slurring her words. This was very alarming to me, because my mom was a highly intelligent woman. I took her into the GP and we had a shouting match. I told him that my mother needed to have tests done. He pulled me aside and said that she was just taking too much of her anti-anxiety medicine, and that’s why she was slurring her words. He told me that he would not admit her to a hospital for tests. We left, and that was the night that mom called the ambulance.
The brain tumor was inoperable. We had a family meeting about the best course of action for our mother. I said make her comfortable and have the family around her. My older sisters opted for chemotherapy and radiation. The last three weeks of my mother’s life were a living hell. They had to strap her to her bed, because she became violent. She couldn’t eat. She couldn’t communicate. Finally, after the doctors had pumped all of the poison into her, they suggested that we just put her on morphine, with no water or feeding tube, and let her die. To me, this was criminal for the doctors to have even agreed to chemo/radiation, when they knew the outcome and the torture of this treatment on a woman who was close to death.
Because this is so incredibly important, I am posting an article from Health Impact News in its entirety:
FROM HEALTH IMPACT NEWS:
The Cancer Industry is Too Prosperous to Allow a Cure
Health Impact News Editor Comments
We have lost the war on cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.
The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.
The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.
John Thomas explains to us why the current cancer industry prospers while treating cancer, but cannot afford to cure it.
Cancer Makes Too Much Money to Cure
by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News
My Personal Introduction to Conventional Cancer Treatment Began in 1995
The surgeon pointed his pen at a large tumor on the CAT scan and began to explain the procedure for removing the colon cancer. He then paused for a moment and said to my wife, “This isn’t your biggest problem.” He then began to tap his pen on three small points that were visible on the image of her liver. “These are a much bigger problem, because we can’t remove them with surgery.”
Everyone we met at the University medical center was compassionate and concerned for us. After the surgery, we met with the oncologist. He explained the chemotherapy option. He told my wife, “You have 6 months to one year to live if you do chemotherapy. If you don’t do chemotherapy, then you have 6 months to 1 year to live.” The only positive reason that he could offer us for doing chemotherapy was that if by chance she was in the group that only had 6 months to live, then it might extend her life a few more months. We asked about alternative treatments, and he indicated that none of them have proven beneficial. My wife opted to not do chemotherapy, because she didn’t want to suffer the side effects of the drugs.
Many things were different in 1995 than they are today. At that time, we did not have easy access to information about alternative cancer treatments. We did learn about a few alternatives and tried some of them, but the cancer kept growing. My wife refused to consider any alternative that would require her to make major lifestyle changes. She was willing to try therapies as long as she could keep working and could continue eating the standard American diabetic diet, which was a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet. She only became willing to consider other alternative treatments when she was within a couple weeks of death. She lived for exactly one year from the time of her diagnosis.
Are We Winning the War on Cancer?
In the 2010 documentary titled “Cut Poison Burn,” filmmaker Wayne Chesler presents powerful facts about corruption in the business of conventional cancer treatment in the United States. Consider these seven comments that were taken from the documentary, which show that America is far from winning the war against cancer.
“From 1920 to the present time, we have made little progress in the treatment of adult cancers. So, a person who gets prostate cancer or breast cancer today will live as long as a person who got it in 1920.” (Charles B. Simone, M.MS., M.D., Founder, Simone Protective Cancer Center)
“Why are people terrified when they hear the word cancer? Because they know it [conventional cancer treatment] doesn’t work.” (Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D. Founder, Whitaker Wellness Institute)
“Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud.” (Dr. Linus Pauling 1986, Nobel Laureate)
In a patent that was designed to steal Dr. Burzynski’s cancer cure, the United States Government, stated, “Current approaches to combat cancer rely primarily on the use of chemical and radiation, which are themselves carcinogenic and may promote recurrences and the development of metastatic disease.” The US Government admits that conventional treatments cause cancer. (Patent No. 5,605,930. “Compositions and methods for treating and preventing pathologies including cancer.” Approved 1997 USA Department of HHS page 56)
“The American Cancer Society is more interested in accumulating wealth than saving lives.” (Chronicles of Philanthropy 1992)
“Breast Cancer Awareness Month was actually initiated by the companies that make Tamoxifen. The devices for mammograms are made by General Electric and General Electric is in a relationship with the people behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so there is a huge industry that is invested in breast cancer. Although the goal is noble, to me it is obscene that these companies are using the symbol of the pink ribbon for commercial purposes only. Very few dollars ever make it to really help women.” (Dr. Sherrill Sellman, author of What Women MUST Know to Protect their Daughters from Breast Cancer.)
“I find it very interesting that we have all these walks for the cure for cancer. We got all the risk factors. We got all the donations. We are going to find a cure in this decade. All this money keeps pouring in and it all goes to the same guys. (Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D. Founder, Whitaker Wellness Institute)
How can this be? Where have all those billions of research dollars gone? Where is the fruit from the war on cancer that began in 1971? Are we really much safer from the ravages of cancer today than we were in the past?
The research dollars have all been devoured by a cancer monopoly – a cartel – consisting of pharmaceutical companies, the American Medical Association, a research system that supports pharmaceutical manufacturers, a system of charities that raise money for cancer research, and various federal agencies such as the US FDA. These groups have little interest in curing cancer, but are fully committed to earning profits for the cancer monopoly that is headed by the pharmaceutical companies.
Cancer is a Metabolic Disease not a Genetic Disease
There is considerable talk these days in the media and among researchers who conduct research for the pharmaceutical industry that is intended to convince us that the cause of cancer is genetic abnormalities.
The belief in a genetic cause for cancer serves the drug companies very well. They want us to believe that the cure for cancer will need to be based on genetics, and individualized drugs will need to be developed to match each person’s genetic profile and their specific type of cancer. The vast excitement about genetics on the part of drug companies and the conventional medical system is based on the fact that conventional medical treatments are unable to cure most cancers. This is a fact they will not admit.
They want us to stop asking the question, “Why has the 40 year war on cancer failed to produce any results?” They want us to stop asking why there are only three approved treatments for cancer (surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy) and why no new cancer therapies have been approved by the US FDA in the last one hundred years. They want us to have hope for a brighter day in cancer treatment while our friends and family die by the thousands every day.
Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried, Ph.D. addresses the metabolic nature of cancer. He is a nationally known researcher in Genetics and Biochemistry. His research program focuses on gene environmental interactions related to complex diseases, such as epilepsy, autism, brain cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Seyfried investigates many of these diseases from the perspective of genetics, lipidomics, and energy metabolism. Much of his work also has direct translational benefit to the clinic for the treating of cancer through the use of the restricted ketogenic diet (KD-R). He is the author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease, published in 2012.
Dr. Seyfried’s research shows us that once again, the drug companies are on the wrong track when it comes to curing cancer. The current path of drug company research will not lead to a cure for cancer, but will perpetuate their multibillion dollar business model, which earns profits on the basis of withholding curative cancer treatments from the healthcare system.
These are a few of Dr. Seyfried’s findings taken from the conclusion to his book.  My comments are in brackets.
1. No real progress has been made in the management of advanced or metastatic cancer for more than 40 years. The number of people dying each year and each day has changed little in more than 10 years.
2. Most of the conceptual advances made in understanding the mechanisms of cancer have more to do with nonmetastatic tumors than with metastatic tumors. [Many cancers are discovered after they metastasize and have already spread to other locations in the body.]
3. Most cancer, regardless of cell or tissue origin, is a singular disease of respiratory insufficiency coupled with compensatory fermentation. [There are not really hundreds of cancer types that need to be studied separately. There is a common mechanism for treating all cancers.]
4. Some factors that can cause respiratory insufficiency and cancer include age, viral infections, hypoxia, inflammation, rare inherited mutations, radiation, and carcinogens. [A very small number of cancers have a genetic origin. Other factors such as toxic exposure create conditions where cancer can develop.]
5. The genomic instability seen in tumor cells is a downstream epiphenomenon of respiratory insufficiency and enhanced fermentation. [In other words, there are genetic abnormalities associated with cancer, however, these are a consequence of cancer and not the cause of it.]
7. The view that most cancer is a genetic disease is no longer credible. [This is a statement made by a researcher who began his career as a genetic researcher.]
8. Cancer cells depend largely on glucose and glutamine metabolism for survival, growth, and proliferation. [They must have glucose, which is a simple sugar, in order to live.]
9. Restricted access to glucose and glutamine will compromise cancer cell growth and survival. [When cancer cells do not have glucose to nourish them, they die.]
10. Protection of mitochondria from oxidative damage will prevent or reduce risk of cancer. [Antioxidants prevent cancer.]
11. Lifestyle changes will be needed to manage and prevent cancer. [This means that there is no magic pill that we can take to prevent or cure cancer. We must change our relationship with food and lifestyle to prevent and cure cancer.]
12. A new era will emerge for cancer management and prevention, once cancer becomes recognized as a metabolic disease.
In other words, the cure for cancer is obtained by starving cancer cells so that they die while feeding the rest of the body so that it can grow stronger and use its natural immune system to resist cancer. This involves a high-fat low-carbohydrate restricted calorie ketogenic diet. Dr. Seyfried looks forward to the creation of new drugs that will take advantage of cancer’s dependency on glucose to address cancer. The combination of diet and targeted drugs will be a low cost treatment with few if any side effects and with a high rate of success.
The Cancer Industry in Operation
In 2012 I befriended a man in another country whose wife was diagnosed with late stage colon cancer. By this time, my second wife and I had spent many years studying alternative cancer protocols, and I was able to share what I knew with the hope that it could help his wife. His wife was resistant to trying alternative therapies unless her doctor would approve. My friend discussed several alternative options involving herbs and dietary supplements with the oncologist, and he was told that none of that would be beneficial, and furthermore, it might interfere with chemotherapy.
The doctor even went one step further. He required that they make a commitment to not use any alternative therapy unless he agreed. He even took several bottles of supplements from their possession with the pretext that he was going to evaluate them. He kept them for months to prevent them from being used. They were returned only after my friend insisted that his property be returned.
I shared information with my friend about several alternative cancer therapies which emphasized dietary changes. I explained how there was a large body of research that now shows that the high-fat low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet has proven to be a powerful tool for reversing and even curing some forms of cancer. This suggestion was met with strong opposition from hospital nursing/dietetic staff. My friend’s wife was told that she must eat fruit and carbohydrates in order to live. They were further told that a person’s diet has absolutely no bearing on treating cancer. She was encouraged to eat as much fruit, sugar, pasta, and bread as she wanted. My friend’s wife stuck with the standard American diet as she suffered through a dozen courses of horribly debilitating chemotherapy. Her doctor gave her permission to try alternative cancer treatments when it was clear that she had less than a month to live, and she would have been killed by another round of chemo.
What I saw as I witnessed this situation was the steel walls of a cancer factory. Once my friends opened the door to the system, no matter what they thought or how they felt, the conveyor belt of the cancer factory would keep on moving them forward. They dangled the prospect of curative surgery for stage 4 metastatic colon cancer in front of her if she would first agree to do chemotherapy. Every attempt my friends made to try to change the treatment plan was met with opposition from her doctors to the point where her doctors even threatened to withhold pain medication if she refused to continue with chemotherapy. There was a standard of care and no one was allowed to control their own treatment once they entered the factory. The only ones who could avoid entering the cancer factory are those who had financial resources and who could seek private treatment in Europe or Mexico.
Why is the Cancer Factory so Powerful?
Dr. Gonzalez, the developer of pancreatic enzyme therapy for cancer gives us this answer. “War on cancer” has been a failure due to a combination of politics, money, greed, and corruption—largely the result of an unholy alliance between the American Cancer Society, NCI [National Cancer Institute], Sloan-Kettering, and the drug companies.”
I will discuss the various parts of the “unholy alliance” that were used to build the cancer factory. I will describe the roles played by pharmaceutical companies, medical doctors, medical researchers, not-for-profit cancer charities, the FDA and CDC, carbohydrate addiction, and medical idolatry. I will also go on to discuss what current research shows us regarding how we can successfully cure cancer with alternative treatments. A person with cancer does not need to step into the cancer factory and surrender control over his or her life to the medical system. We do have other options. However, those who wish to avoid the cancer factory need to be willing to go through a complete lifestyle reformation.
Pharmaceutical companies and the Cancer Factory
The cancer factory operates on money and lots of it.
In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US.
If we use a low estimate of the average annual cost for treating each newly diagnosed person who has cancer, (such as $50,000), then the healthcare cost will be over 83 billion dollars for this first phase of cancer treatment for these patients in 2014.
The typical new cancer drug coming on the market a decade ago cost about $4,500 per month (in 2012 dollars); since 2010 the median price has been around $10,000. Two of the new cancer drugs cost more than $35,000 each per month of treatment.
This makes it clear that a large percentage of cancer treatment is directly related to the cost of chemotherapy drugs. It is not unusual for a new cancer patient to be given 6 to 12 months of chemotherapy as part of his or her initial treatment.
At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.
We have lost the war on cancer. Since the 1950s the outlook for most cancer patients has remained the same – a one in three chance of living for 5 years after diagnosis using conventional therapies – surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy drugs. The fact is that today two out of three cancer patients will be dead before 5 years.
In 1985, Professor John Cairns from Harvard University published a study in Scientific American concerning the benefits of chemotherapy drugs. He stated, “Aside from certain rare cancers, it is not possible to detect any sudden changes in the death rates for any of the major cancers that could be credited to chemotherapy. Whether any of the common cancers can be cured by chemotherapy has yet to be established.” He also stated, “A six- or twelve-month course of chemotherapy not only is a very unpleasant experience but also has its own intrinsic mortality…treatments now avert…perhaps 2 or 3 percent…of the deaths from cancer that occur each year in the U.S.”
Nineteen years later, in 2004, Australian researchers came to the same conclusion as Dr. Cairns. They found that the overall contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.  In other words, very little benefit is being obtained from the billions of dollars that are spent on chemotherapy drugs.
The pharmaceutical industry has a powerful hold on the entire medical system in the United States, and they are not about to let alternative cancer therapies be established. How do they control the cancer factory and the doctors that provide cancer treatment? The next sections will examine other parts of the cartel. For additional information about pharmaceutical companies, please read the following articles.
Pharmaceutical companies now among largest corporate criminals in the world: no better than white-collar drug dealers
Pulling Back the Curtain on the Organized Crime Ring That Is the Pharmaceutical Drug Cartel
Physicians and the Cancer Factory
In the 1800s there were two primary approaches to healing. The allopathic model viewed disease as an invader, which needed to be driven out of the body through the use of various treatments, which included bleeding, administration of toxic substances such as mercury and lead, and the use of surgical procedures. The other common style was the Empiric medical model, which attempted to help a person overcome disease by strengthening and encouraging a person’s own ability to heal. Herbs and highly diluted substances were given to help establish normal functioning of the body.
In the early twentieth century everything began to change. Certain wealthy families with the last names of Carnegie, Morgan, and Rockefeller took notice of the potential profits that could be made from new patented medicines. They joined forces with the American Medical Association, which represented allopathic physicians, and implemented a plan to take control of the healthcare system in America.
They began by taking control over medical schools. They made large donations to medical schools around the country in exchange for the opportunity to put their representatives on university boards of directors. This enabled them to reshape the curriculum to focus on what would become the three pillars of modern medicine, i.e. surgery, radiotherapy, and synthetic pharmaceutical drugs. Medical training would now focus on these pillars, especially the last pillar – synthetic drugs. Doctors would be taught to depend on pharmaceutical drugs for their first line treatment for all health conditions.
It only took about twenty years for the American Medical Association to dominate medical practice in the United States. During this time, they implemented a campaign to eliminate all competition. They used various marketing campaigns to discredit and disqualify homeopathic physicians from practicing medicine in the United States. The AMA called other types of healthcare providers quacks and called all therapies, other than the ones they provided, quackery. This smear campaign continues to this very day with numerous anti-competition websites. The chief website is called Quack Watch, which is dedicated to eliminating all forms of competition to the pharmaceutical cartel, which might threaten the use of pharmaceutical drugs and which might cause people to turn away from the allopathic medical care system and its cancer factory.
How to Tell if Your Doctor is on the Drug Industries’ Payroll
Click on this link and put in your hospital, clinic or doctors’ name, and you will be able to see how much money they are receiving and from which big pharma company:
The Medical Monopoly on Healing
Medical Research and the Cancer Factory
Before 1980 most clinical research was funded by the US National Institutes of Health through grants given to universities. The universities conducted unbiased scientific research designed to reveal truth about whatever they were studying.
During the 1990s, most of those research dollars were diverted from universities and were brought into for-profit research organizations that exist to serve the pharmaceutical industry. This change gave drug companies much greater control over the research process. They could now design their own studies. They could control the data distribution and could hide unfavorable research results. They also began to exercise considerable control over research publications, which means that they could prevent research papers on alternative medical therapies from being published. 
Government Oversight and the Cancer Machine
The pharmaceutical industry wants us to believe that the US Food and Drug Agency (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are working to provide safe and effective medical care for all Americans. The truth is that the FDA is now funded, in large part, by fees paid by drug companies, and the CDC marches to the drum beat of the pharmaceutical industry.
There is a revolving door of pharmaceutical industry representatives who hold influential positions in these agencies while having strong ties to their former (and future) pharmaceutical industry employers. In short, the big pharma fox is not only guarding the hen house, he is living in the henhouse. Thus, the principle of overseeing public safety and efficacy has been replaced by the profit motivation of the pharmaceutical industry. These agencies not only serve the cartel and its cancer factory, but they are working hard to prevent anyone who is not part of the cartel from successfully introducing alternative cancer treatments into the medical care system.
Charitable Fundraising and the Cancer Factory
I used to give money to all the walks, runs, dance marathons, swimathons, bikeathons, etc. I used to believe that I was doing a good deed. I saw all those handicapped kids and women who were suffering from breast cancer and other life threatening diseases, and my heart strings would get twanged. With the sympathetic sounds of pleading children in my ears, I would open my wallet and support what I believed must be a good cause.
What I have learned over the years is that most of these types of activities and the national organizations that organize them have a strong interest in not curing the diseases that are listed in their names. In the case of cancer charities, they are among the most highly funded charities. Beyond the high percentage of the money they use for overhead operations, most of the money they raise goes to support research activities that have been approved by the pharmaceutical cartel. In other words, when we give a dollar to a cancer charity, it will likely end up supporting research that was designed by the pharmaceutical industry. It will not be given to anyone who is doing alternative research on cancer treatments, which might be a financial competition to the drugs, radiation, and surgery that are provided by the cancer factory.
In short, a dollar given to these charities enables the drug cartel to continue with their existing research program on donated money. I may as well have just written a check to Pfizer, Bayer, or some other multi-national pharmaceutical corporation.
No More “Pinkwashing”! Support an Integrative Approach to Breast Cancer
Carbohydrate Addiction and the Cancer Factory
I have found over the years of speaking with people about dietary approaches to disease management, that most people don’t want to hear the message. We know that the progression of many diseases can be halted, reversed, and even cured by the use of a ketogenic diet without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. This is true for epilepsy, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer. When the ketogenic dietary option is mentioned, people initially have a positive response, but when the details are described, then their enthusiasm quickly vanishes. People say, “What would I eat if I have to give up sugar, bread, pasta, potatoes, cookies, cakes, fruit, soda, sweet vegetables, and snack foods that I eat?” They can’t imagine eating a high fat, medium protein, low carbohydrate diet. Most people simply say something like, “Well, that’s interesting, but my oncologist says I can eat whatever I want…” Or, “Well, why would I want to do that, I have pills that control my condition.”
The truth is that most Americans are physically and emotionally addicted to carbohydrates. Most carbohydrates turn into glucose and as research shows, most cancers require glucose to survive. Healthy human cells can either use glucose or ketone bodies for energy. However, cancer cells have impaired respiration, which results in their inability to use ketones for energy. The principle behind the ketogenic diet for cancer treatment is to severely reduce glucose consumption and calorie consumption, to force the body to produce ketone bodies which it can use as an energy source. The result of this dietary therapy is to essentially starve cancer cells, while all other healthy cells in the body are nourished by ketone bodies.
Unfortunately most members of the conventional healthcare system falsely believe that glucose is necessary to support human life. Every cell in the human body can easily survive on ketone bodies including the human brain, but not cancer cells.
One of the foremost experts in the use of the ketogenic diet for treating cancer is Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried, Ph.D. I started this article with a few of his research findings. He is the author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease, published in 2012.
Dr. Seyfried writes:
Evidence suggests that the human brain can become addicted to glucose from a lifelong consumption of energy-dense foods of low nutritional value. [Typical high carbohydrate American diet] Consequently, the abrupt cessation of food intake may produce temporary withdrawal symptoms similar to those experienced from cessation of any addictive substance. This is one reason why considerable personal discipline and motivation is needed to follow the ketogenic diet regimen.
Glucose withdrawal symptoms can be greater in those individuals who have never fasted than in individuals who have experience fasting. As most people in modern industrial societies do not practice therapeutic fasting as a lifestyle, glucose withdrawal symptoms will likely be encountered in most patients who attempt the restricted ketogenic diet as a cancer therapy. These symptoms could also be greater in older individuals than in younger ones. Indeed, fasting might not be possible in some older people who have lived a food-rich life of excess.
When compared to the debilitating effects of conventional chemotherapies and radiation, however, the symptoms associated with the ketogenic diet are relatively mild and will pass after 2-3 days for most people. Nevertheless, glucose withdrawal symptoms and the feeling of hunger are simply too uncomfortable for some people regardless of the potential therapeutic benefits. It is therefore important for physicians to recognize that some cancer patients might be unable or unwilling to implement the restricted ketogenic diet for various reasons. Some individuals are simply incapable of fasting. Hence, the standard of care [surgery, radiation, chemotherapy] becomes the only therapeutic option for these patients.
I mention Dr. Seyfried’s work, because most people have been victimized by the high-carbohydrate diet, which has now been proven to cause diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. We were told that saturated fat and cholesterol were evil, and we should eat mostly carbohydrate food with every meal and to especially start the day with a fat free breakfast consisting of nearly 100% sugar and grains. The standard American diet has created generations of carbohydrate addicts.
When an addict is faced with the prospect of needing to give up his addiction many will say, “I would rather die than to give up candy bars, bread, pasta, and fruit.” And sadly, I have watched people with cancer do just that! They gave their cancer the exact food it wanted to keep growing and they died despite all the chemo, radiation, and surgery. They refused to accept the possibility that their nutritionally deficient standard American diet had anything to do with their health.

No. I’ve told all of my doctors, my oncologist, my neurosurgeon, my neurologist, about my diet. I did not ask for their help in adopting it, I just began slowly and felt I had enough good information to take it on myself. I was also not undergoing any other treatment at the time.”

Medical Idolatry and the Cancer Factory
We have all been taught to put people who wear white coats up on very high pedestals. We have been taught to believe that physicians and other healthcare providers will always keep our best interests in mind. We have been conditioned to live as if doctors are the closest people to God that we can see on the Earth. We are to revere them, respect them, and never question their judgments. We should feel shame if we doubt our doctors and should consider ourselves traitors if we don’t follow every directive they give. From our earliest years, we have been brainwashed to do whatever doctors tell us. What do we tell our children when they are sick and are refusing to take a horrid tasting medicine? We say, “You have to take this, because your doctor says so.” In short, we treat them like gods and worship them through our checkbooks.
To walk away from the cancer factory requires us to break the oath of allegiance that we have made to the pharmaceutical industry and the American medical system. The oath may never have been written down for our consideration and assent; nevertheless, most Americans live by it. It goes like this:
I affirm that I will obey my doctors. I will take all the medication that he or she prescribes. I will trust my doctor, because he or she would never do anything that would not be in my best interest. I will distrust all forms of alternative therapies and will especially distrust all healthcare providers except those approved by my doctor. I yield responsibility over my life and my health to my doctor and to the therapies of the conventional American medical system. I will entrust them with my health and give them credit for all successes. If I cannot be cured, then I will attribute the failure to genetics, and will reassure my doctor that he or she provided the best care that could be offered for my condition. I will praise the conventional medical system in America until I die.
When we renounce this oath, we become responsible for managing our own healthcare. We turn away from medical idolatry and no longer worship the people who wear white coats. We discontinue the blind acceptance of whatever healthcare providers tell us to do, and we actively begin to chart the course for our health. We may choose to seek out alternative minded physicians who will work with us as medical consultants, which is a very different type of relationship. Some who read this will still be reluctant to break the oath, because they are not willing to kick out the pedestal that their doctors are standing on. I hope, as you read further, you will begin having a change of mind.
The Failure of the Cancer Factory
The following links are for articles that describe how the pharmaceutical cartel and its supporting institutions are making us sick and have failed to promote our health. The failures are many and the conflicts of interest are grievous.

The big pharma cartel has bought its way into every corner of US society. Our medical freedom is dwindling by the day. Many of us have made decisions to try to avoid interacting with the healthcare system and the pharmaceutical masters who control most doctors in America whenever possible. It is possible to take responsibility for your health and to reverse the patterns of disease that you are experiencing. Yes, this includes cancer. Please remember, illness is not normal despite what doctors tell you!
I spent nearly 50 years eating the standard American diet. I was extremely overweight, sick, and developing heart disease. I have been on the ketogenic diet for most of the last three years, and used a less restrictive version of it for a few years before that. My heart function is now normal and I am more mentally alert and physically stronger than I have been in many years.
I have been focusing on the ketogenic diet in this article, but there are numerous other approaches to curing cancer. You will not learn about them from conventional physicians who are working in the cancer factory. In part two of this article, I will review many of the highly successful alternative treatments that are being used for cancer treatment. There are many great options for those who want to avoid being poisoned, burned, and cut by the practitioners who work in the modern American cancer factory.
Consider the profits that are being made by chemotherapy drugs. This is actually a tiny portion of all the money that is being made by the cancer factory and the pharmaceutical cartel.
Pfizer alone projects its annual cancer drug returns will be $11 billion by 2018.
In 2010, Gleevec grossed $4.3 billion. Roche’s Herceptin (the HER2 drug) and Avastin did even better: $6 billion and $7.4 billion respectively. Cancer plays a huge role in the rising costs of healthcare. America’s National Institutes of Health predict that spending on all cancer treatment will rise from $125 billion last year to at least $158 billion in 2020. If drugs become pricier, as seems likely, that bill could rise to $207 billion.
The cancer factory is truly big business in America. This system cannot afford to permit anyone to find a cure for cancer. If any of the low cost highly successful alternative cancer treatments were to be approved for use, then this entire system would come crashing down. The pharmaceutical cartel will not let that happen. 
FROM DR. MERCOLA’S WEBSITE ON KETOGENIC DIET FOR CANCER
Many cancer patients have reportedly overcome the disease by adopting a ketogenic diet, which calls for eliminating carbohydrates, replacing them with healthy fats and protein
Animal studies have shown that mice fed a carb-free diet survived highly aggressive metastatic cancer even better than those treated with chemotherapy
Your normal cells have the metabolic flexibility to adapt from using glucose to using ketone bodies. Cancer cells lack this metabolic flexibility, so when you eliminate carbs, which turn into sugar, you effectively starve the cancer
Eating fat is NOT bad for your heart. Particularly beneficial fats include coconut oil, butter, organic pastured eggs, avocado and raw nuts. Most people need as much as 50-70 percent healthful fat in their diet to optimize health
The Cancer Treatment So Successful – Traditional Doctors SHUT it Down
To some, a ketogenic diet amounts to nothing less than a drug-free cancer treatment. The diet calls for eliminating carbohydrates, replacing them with healthy fats and protein.
The premise is that since cancer cells need glucose to thrive, and carbohydrates turn into glucose in your body, then cutting out carbs literally starves the cancer cells.
This type of diet, in which you replace carbs with moderate amounts of high quality protein and high amounts of beneficial fat, is what I recommend for everyone, whether you have cancer or not. It’s simply a diet that will help optimize your weight and health overall, as eating this way will help you convert from carb burning mode to fat burning.
Ketogenic Diet May Be Key to Brain Cancer Recovery
The featured video shows Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D, who is one of the leaders in teasing the details of how to treat cancer nutritionally. I am scheduled to interview him shortly and hope to have that interview up later this year. In the video, Professor Seyfried discusses how, as a metabolic disorder involving the dysregulation of respiration, malignant brain cancer can be managed through changes in the metabolic environment.
“In contrast to normal neurons and glia, which transition to ketone bodies (beta-hydroxybutyrate) for respiratory energy when glucose levels are reduced, malignant brain tumors are mostly dependent on non-oxidative substrate level phosphorylation due to structural and functional abnormalities in mitochondria. Glucose and glutamine are major fuels for malignant cancer cells.
The transition from glucose to ketone bodies as an energy source is an ancestrally conserved adaptation to food deprivation that permits the survival of normal cells during extreme shifts in nutritional environment. Only those cells with a flexible genome, honed through millions of years of environmental forcing and variability selection, can transition from one energy state to another.
We propose a different approach to brain cancer management that exploits the metabolic flexibility of normal cells at the expense of the genetically defective and metabolically challenged. This evolutionary and metabolic approach to brain cancer management is supported from studies in orthotopic mouse brain tumor models and from case studies in patients.
Calorie restriction and restricted ketogenic diets (R-KD), which reduce circulating glucose levels and elevate ketone levels, are anti-invasive, anti-angiogenic, and pro-apoptotic towards malignant brain cancer.”1
Current conventional cancer treatment typically involves chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Chemotherapy is a cytotoxic poison, and radiation is devastating to the human body. More often than not, the treatment is what eventually kills the patient. This can no longer be accepted as “the best we can do.” As Dr. Seyfried says:
“The reason why we have so few people surviving is because of the standard of care. It has to be changed, if it’s not changed, there will be no major progress. Period.”
Metabolic Therapy/Ketogenic Diet Being Investigated as Cancer Treatment
CBN News recently published an article on the ketogenic diet.2 Clearly, many people are realizing that what we have been doing in terms of fighting cancer is simply not working, and we cannot afford to continue in the same way. Prevention must be addressed if we ever want to turn the tide on the growing incidence of cancer across all age groups. But even more astounding, in terms of treatment, is that cancer may respond to diet alone.
“Dr. Fred Hatfield is an impressive guy: a power-lifting champion, author of dozens of books, a millionaire businessman with a beautiful wife. But he’ll tell you his greatest accomplishment is killing his cancer just in the nick of time,” CBN News writes. “The doctors gave me three months to live because of widespread metastatic cancer in my skeletal structure,” he recalled. “Three months; three different doctors told me that same thing.”
Dr. Hatfield was preparing to die when he heard of metabolic therapy, also known as the ketogenic diet. He had nothing to lose so he gave it a try, and… it worked. The cancer disappeared completely, and at the time of his interview (above), he’d been cancer-free for over a year.
The video above also features Dr. Dominic D’Agostino who, along with a team of researchers at the University of South Florida studies metabolic therapy. They found that when lab animals were fed a carb-free diet, they survived highly aggressive metastatic cancer better than those treated with chemotherapy. CBN reports:
“‘We have dramatically increased survival with metabolic therapy,’ [Dr. D’Agostino] said. ‘So we think it’s important to get this information out.’ It’s not just lab mice. Dr. D’Agostino has also seen similar success in people – lots of them. ‘I’ve been in correspondence with a number of people,’ he said. ‘At least a dozen over the last year-and-a-half to two years, and all of them are still alive, despite the odds. So this is very encouraging.'”
How Does Ketogenic Diet Starve Cancer Cells?
Dr. D’Agostino explains how the ketogenic diet can have such a dramatic (and rapid) effect on cancer. All of your body’s cells are fueled by glucose. This includes cancer cells. However, cancer cells have one built-in fatal flaw – they do not have the metabolic flexibility of your regular cells and cannot adapt to use ketone bodies for fuel as all your other cells can.
So, when you alter your diet and become what’s known as “fat-adapted,” your body starts using fat for fuel rather than carbs. When you switch out the carbs for healthy fats, you starve the cancer out, as you’re no longer supplying the necessary fuel – glucose – for their growth. As D’Agostino explains:
“Your normal cells have the metabolic flexibility to adapt from using glucose to using ketone bodies. But cancer cells lack this metabolic flexibility. So we can exploit that.”
I’ve previously discussed ways to “starve” cancer, and eliminating sugar/fructose and grains (ie carbohydrates) is at the very top of the list. It’s the most basic step without which few other dietary strategies are likely to succeed. In order to be effective, you must first STOP doing that which is promoting cancer growth (or poor health in general), and then all the other preventive strategies have the chance to really have an impact.
What Makes for a Cancer-Fighting Diet?
Please remember addressing your diet should be at the top of your list. Naturally, processed foods and soft drinks do not belong in a cancer-preventive diet, as they are loaded with carbs that turn into fuel for cancer cells.
Carbs also raise your insulin and leptin levels, and keeping your insulin and leptin signaling healthy is imperative if you want to avoid chronic disease of all kinds, including cancer.
Processed foods may also contain trans fat – the only type of fat you really need to avoid like the plague. They are also loaded with omega-6 fats which the featured otherwise excellent video failed to mention. Increasing the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is another potent way to increase your risk of cancer cell proliferation.
What About Protein?
One of my primary mentors in the importance of insulin and leptin, Dr. Rosedale. was one of the first professionals to advocate both a low-carb and moderate protein (and therefore high quality fat) diet. This was contrary to most low-carb advocates who were, and still are, very accepting of, if not promoting, high protein, as a replacement for the carbs.
If you or someone you know is challenged with cancer, the healthiest option may be to replace the carbs with beneficial fats, and limit your protein to high quality organic/pastured sources only. Dr. Rosedale advises 1 gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass which for most people will be about 50 grams of protein a day (or 0.5 grams per pound of lean body weight). While you can take carbs to very low levels in ketogenic diets, you must have some protein every day to replace your body’s requirements. The key is to add healthy fat to replace the carbs and excess protein.

The Fallacies of Fats and Carbs
Coincidentally, Dr. Robert Lustig – another expert on the dangers of high carb diets – was recently interviewed by NPR radio’s Science Friday segment.2 His new book, Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease, tackles the persistent myths about fat that is endangering the health of millions. It’s difficult to know just how many people have suffered poor health because they followed conventional low-fat recommendations, but I’m sure the number is significant.
The fact is that you’ve been thoroughly misled when it comes to dietary advice. Still today, many doctors, nutritionists, and government health officials will tell you to avoid saturated fat and keep fat consumption to below 10 percent while keeping the bulk of your diet, about 60 percent, as carbs. This is madness, as it’s the converse of a diet that will lead to optimal health. As an example, you’ve probably seen the whole grain label, which is certified by the American Heart Association3 of all things. Do whole grains support heart health? Hardly. The following outtake from the transcript addresses this head on:
“Flatow: …there’s something that came out yesterday released from Harvard… and it talks about one of the most widely used industry standards, the wholegrain stamp. [It] actually identified grain products [bearing the stamp] were higher in both sugars and calories than products without the stamp.
Lustig: Absolutely. And to be honest with you, wholegrain doesn’t mean much… Basically what it means is you start with a whole grain; that is the starch on the inside, the kernel, or the husk or the bran on the outside, and then whatever you want to do with it is perfectly fine. It’s still a whole grain. So if you pulverize it and add sugar to it, hey it’s still a whole grain because that’s what you started with. But you know what? All the benefits you get from whole grain are gone as soon as you pulverize it. So…. what it means is irrelevant because the definition is not helpful.”
Other Lifestyle Factors that Influence Your Cancer Risk
Other lifestyle factors that have been found to have an impact on chronic disease and cancer include:
Vitamin D: There’s overwhelming evidence pointing to the fact that vitamin D deficiency plays a crucial role in cancer development. You can decrease your risk of cancer by more than half simply by optimizing your vitamin D levels with sun exposure or a safe tanning bed. And, if you are being treated for cancer, it is likely that higher blood levels – probably around 80-90 ng/ml – would be beneficial. To learn the details on how to use vitamin D therapeutically, please review my previous article, Test Values and Treatment for Vitamin D Deficiency. In terms of protecting against cancer, vitamin D has been found to offer protection in a number of ways, including:
Regulating genetic expression
Increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer)
Reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells
Causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation)
Reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous
Getting proper sleep: both in terms of getting enough sleep, and sleeping between certain hours. According to Ayurvedic medicine, the ideal hours for sleep are between 10 pm and 6 am. Modern research has confirmed the value of this recommendation as certain hormonal fluctuations occur throughout the day and night, and if you engage in the appropriate activities during those times, you’re ‘riding the wave’ so to speak, and are able to get the optimal levels. Working against your biology by staying awake when you should ideally be sleeping or vice versa, interferes with these hormonal fluctuations.
There’s a spike of melatonin that occurs between midnight and 1am that you don’t want to miss because the consequences are absolutely spectacular. Melatonin is not only a sleep hormone, but it also is a very powerful antioxidant. It decreases the amount of estrogen your body produces, and boosts your immune system. It also interacts with other hormones. So, if you go to bed after 10, it can significantly increase your risk of breast cancer.
Effectively addressing your stress: The research shows that if you experience a traumatic or highly stressful event, such as a death in the family, your risk of breast cancer is 12 times higher in the ensuing five years. I believe energy psychology tools are ideal to address stressors in your life. My favorite is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), but there are many others available as well.
Exercise: If you are like most people, when you think of reducing your risk of cancer, exercise doesn’t immediately come to mind. However, there is some fairly compelling evidence that exercise can slash your risk of cancer.
One of the primary ways exercise lowers your risk for cancer is by reducing elevated insulin levels, which creates a low sugar environment that discourages the growth and spread of cancer cells. Additionally, exercise improves the circulation of immune cells in your blood. Your immune system is your first line of defense against everything from minor illnesses like a cold right up to devastating, life-threatening diseases like cancer.
The trick about exercise, though, is understanding how to use it as a precise tool. This ensures you are getting enough to achieve the benefit, not too much to cause injury, and the right variety to balance your entire physical structure and maintain strength and flexibility, and aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels. This is why it is helpful to view exercise like a drug that needs to be carefully prescribed to achieve its maximum benefit. For detailed instructions, please see this previous article.
Additionally it is likely that integrating exercise with intermittent fasting will greatly catalyze the potential of exercise to reduce your risk of cancer and stimulate widespread healing and rejuvenation.
You CAN Beat ‘the System’…
Cancer is the second most lethal disease in the US after heart disease (not counting iatrogenic mortality, aka “death by medicine”). We all know that the war on cancer has been a dismal failure. Tragically, conventional wisdom is blind when it comes to cancer prevention and treatment and hundreds of thousands die prematurely every year as a result. They have little to no appreciation of the concepts discussed in this article. But you don’t have to fall into that trap as you know better and can take control of your health and ability to treat cancer in your own hands.
The ketogenic diet, which can be summarized as a high-fat, moderate-protein, no-grain-carb diet, has brought many back to health, even after being diagnosed with aggressive cancer, and given no hope of survival. Hopefully, research by the likes of Dr. D’Agostino will become more widely known. Until then, do your own research and take control of your own health, and that of your family.
Severely limiting sugar/fructose, processed foods of all kinds, sweetened beverages (as well as diet versions), and replacing carbs with healthy fats and high quality protein can do what no medicine can – it can prevent disease from setting in, and may even be the U-turn you’re looking for if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer or other chronic disease. Add to that appropriate sun exposure, sleep, effective stress management, and regular exercise, and you’ll be well ahead of the rest of the population. 
Here is another great website all about the Ketogenic Diet:
Now, do I know that this diet will cure my husband? Only God Himself knows that. But I do know this: The conventional methods of fighting cancer have failed for the most part. Chemotherapy not only destroys cancer cells – it destroys everything else, including the immune system!
There are so many articles and websites devoted to the Ketogenic diet. You can google it and you will find a wealth of information, along with what to eat and what not to eat.
In this diet, we eat NO sugar, NO simple carbohydrates. Healthy fats are good and eating lots of organic vegetables and fruits. Organic nuts are a great source of healthy fats. We eat salmon and chicken. Lots of green tea is great. As I said, you will find so much information to get you started on your healthy life and healing for the most awful diseases.
Here is another great website all about the Ketogenic Diet:
My prayer is that people everywhere will know the truth about the big pharma cartel and the natural healing diet that is available to us, of which the pharmaceutical companies do NOT want us to know!
