Probably the most common question I am asked regarding the actual credibility of reversing cancer, goes something like this: If there really IS a CURE for cancer, why wouldn’t my doctor tell me about it?
Let me explain. Your doctor is trying to provide the best treatment for you within his or her knowledge and within the acceptable protocol of treatments offered. But doctors are taught almost nothing about prevention or nutrition in medical school.
Doctors are specialists in treating the symptoms of disease. Most doctors do not receive more than FOUR HOURS of training in nutrition during their four years of medical school. And the primary reason they receive this training now (because when I had cancer they were receiving less than 1 hour in four years) is because of the backlash from the public.
The pharmaceutical industry is a HUGE part of the problem. It’s a multi-billion-dollar industry which provides much of the funding for medical schools and nearly all of the advertising in medical journals. Money really talks in medicine. So your doctor’s ongoing education is largely about drugs and the newest drugs on the market.
The problem is… Drugs CAN NOT cure anything. They only treat symptoms at best and rake in lots of cash in the process. Even chemotherapy is a classic and long-standing example. Chemo is a drug, aimed at shrinking tumors and destroying cancer cells (symptoms). But it also makes the cancer more “chemo resistant” and never deals with the root problem of why a person has cancer in the first place.
Let’s not forget the world’s oldest GOLDEN RULE: He who has the gold – rules!
