Cancer is not a disease, cancer is a business

The cancer business is second only, in size, to its big brother, petrochemicals. In the 20 years from 1970 to 1990, in the USA alone, the cancer business was worth an estimated 1 trillion dollars ($1,000,000,000,000). If the same percentage of the overall disease bill applies in Britain as in the US, the current expenditure on cancer will be 3 to 6 billion pounds per year. With these kind of amounts involved it is quite understandable why the drug/radiation/scalpel/vivisection cancer cartel have maintained a constant, ruthless campaign to suffocate, at birth, any and all attempts to introduce rational therapeutic regimes to deal with the species-threatening plague.

Lymph Node Study Shakes Pillar of Breast Cancer Care

Denise Grady wrote the above article in the New York Times (8 February 2011):

  • Surgeons have been removing lymph nodes from under the arms of breast cancer patients for 100 years, believing it would prolong women’s lives by keeping the cancer from spreading or coming back.
  • A new study finds that many women with early breast cancer do not need such painful procedure, although this is the standard or routine procedure adopted by surgeons.
  • In the United States about  20 percent of patients, or 40,000 women a year  had their lymph nodes removed but benefit nothing from the procedure. It does not improve survival or make the cancer less likely to recur.
  • On top of the money spent and the pains, the procedure  can cause complications like infection and chronic swelling in the arm that ranges from mild to disabling.
  • Experts say that the new findings, combined with similar ones from earlier studies, should change medical practice for many patients.  But who want to change? Old habits die hard!  “ Such a radical change in thought that it’s been hard for many people to get their heads around it.”

The Great Cholesterol Deception

Dr Dingle is an Associate Professor and leading researcher in Health and the Environment at Murdoch University. He wrote this book:

Heart disease is the single biggest killer in the UK, US, Australia and other Western nations. There is widespread belief that the lower one’s cholesterol, the healthier he or she will be. The world has become fixated on lowering cholesterol through medication. Unfortunately this has led to a lot of misinformation and misdirection in treating the real illness. As a result, the rates of heart diseases continue to rise.

Modern Medicine has Failed

The best way to describe the medical field’s obsession with cholesterol is as a decades-old failing protocol, hanging by a thread and looking for more science or another change in the cholesterol theory to justify it. The whole basis of using statin drugs to lower cholesterol in the body is a chameleon theory. It keeps changing to suit the argument. There is no evidence that cholesterol causes heart attack or stroke. There is just no science to support it.

But it keeps changing to suit the pharmaceutical market place and keep its sales up for just another year or two to make a bit more money.

Lifestyle and Diet

This focus on medication to lower cholesterol can be dangerous or even deadly. There is overwhelming evidence that heart disease is a result of lifestyle and dietary choices that lead to inflammation.  It is no longer considered a disorder of fat accumulation, but rather a disease process characterized by low-grade inflammation of the blood vessel lining and an inappropriate wound healing of the blood vessels.

Modern medicine has become one-dimensional and unable to look at the big, multidimensional picture. We treat cholesterol and we continue to get sicker. Only when we treat the inflammation and stress on the body do we treat the illness.

When science goes mad: Just because we can doesn’t mean we should

Robert Knight, The Washington Times,  21 January  2011,wrote:

On any given day, scientists jolt us with new findings – and possibilities.

The white coats in China are busily creating chimeras, the offspring of humans mated with animals (via Petri dish) in order to develop vaccines. With cloning and genetic engineering upon us, the question of whether something should be done is fast being eclipsed by what can be done. But we must keep asking the first question as if our lives depend on it.

In 1943, in “The Abolition of Man,” C.S. Lewis warned that not all scientific advances are benign because human beings are not benign: “Man’s conquest of Nature … means the rule of a few hundreds of men over billions upon billions of men …Each new power won by man is a power over man as well.”

Scientific advances are a two-edged sword, as C.S. Lewis observed. As genetic engineering becomes more doable, the temptation will increase to tamper with human life. We already are far along that track.

… each “advance” must be weighed as to how it will affect the weakest and most defenseless among us. “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.”

 

 

 

Why Almost Everything You Hear About Medicine Is Wrong

by Sharon Begley. Excerpts from the Newsweek article on 24 January2011

If you follow the news about health research, you risk whiplash. First garlic lowers bad cholesterol, then—after more study—it doesn’t. Hormone replacement reduces the risk of heart disease in postmenopausal women, until a huge study finds that it doesn’t (and that it raises the risk of breast cancer to boot).

More and more scholars who scrutinize health research are now making that claim. It isn’t just an individual study here and there that’s flawed … Instead, the very framework of medical investigation may be off-kilter, leading time and again to findings that are at best unproved and at worst dangerously wrong. The result is a system that leads patients and physicians astray.

Chief of Stanford University’s Prevention Research Center, Ioannidis … (said): “People are being hurt and even dying” because of false medical claims, he says: not quackery, but errors in medical research.

If Ioannidis is right, most biomedical studies are wrong.

Examples:

  1. A major study concluded there’s no good evidence that statins (drugs like Lipitor and Crestor) help people with no history of heart disease. The study was based on an evaluation of 14 individual trials with 34,272 patients. Cost of statins: more than $20 billion per year, of which half may be unnecessary.
  2. Numerous studies concluding that popular antidepressants work by altering brain chemistry have now been contradicted (the drugs help with mild and moderate depression, when they work at all, through a placebo effect),
  3. as has research claiming that early cancer detection (through, say, PSA tests) invariably saves lives.
  4. … the list goes on.
  5. Of course, not all conventional health wisdom is wrong. Smoking kills, being morbidly obese or severely underweight makes you more likely to die before your time, processed meat raises the risk of some cancers, and controlling blood pressure reduces the risk of stroke.
