There is no cure for cancer !

Is there a cure for cancer?

There are no guarantees when it comes to cancer recovery. But doctors have greater success finding and treating some types of the disease than others.

Can cancer be cured?

Yes, but not always.

Cured means that the cancer has gone away, and there is no chance of it coming back.

Doctors know how quickly certain cancers tend to come back, if they are going to. For example if testicular cancer is going to come back, it tends to be within three years, but breast cancer can come back 15 or even 20 years later.

Why haven’t we cured cancer?

A question we hear quite a lot from people is “why haven’t we cured cancer?” Billions has been raised, invested and spent on cancer research over many decades so it’s not unfair to ask the question. However, as research progressed we came to the realisation that cancer is a complex beast.

Why haven’t we found a cure for cancer yet?

While we may never have a single cure for cancer, we’re certainly homing in on treating them.

How close are we to curing cancer?

We are close to curing cancer in 2017. But we are not there yet.

Can We Truly “Cure” Cancer?

I don’t think any of us are naive and think there is some magic bullet sitting under our thumb that is going to miraculously turn into a cure, but that’s where we have to aim—to cure.

~ Monica Bertagnolli, chief of the Division of Surgical Oncology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Bertagnolli believes cures will be difficult to achieve and questions if that will be possible for some cancers. But the next best thing, is “making sure that it [cancer] doesn’t negatively impact a patient’s life.”

A cure is a long way off, but the prospect for some specific cancers does look bright.

~ James Allison, chair of the Department of Immunology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Do you think there will be a cure for cancer in our lifetimes?

No. It’s still going to be a long road, but there is good news for cancer patients.

~ Professor Barrie Bode, Northern Illinois University.

We will never find a cure for cancer

If all the positive cancer breakthrough headlines are to be believed, then the cure for cancer is right around the corner. But that is a far cry from reality. I think it’s an illusion to imagine that after millions of years of this disease we’ll suddenly find a solution. I don’t think that we’ll ever beat it, but I think that we’ll get it under control so that it becomes chronic but not deadly.

~ Dr. Jørgen Olsen, head of research at The Danish Cancer Society.

We won’t find a cure, but we’ll probably reach a point where we have so many ways to attack cancer that people won’t die from it anymore.

~ Mads Daugaard from the Molecular Pathology & Cell Imaging Laboratory at the University of British Colombia, Canada.

Survive for Five Years is not a cure!

The common yardstick is a five-year relative survival rate, i.e., ability to live for five years.

  • The number five used is an arbitrary figure. There is no scientific basis of choosing this number.
  • Being alive for five years does not mean the cancer is gone forever. It can recur.

The five-year benchmark becomes a balm for doctors and patients who find the unpredictability of their situations intolerable. Physicians are reluctant to say you might recur, so they would rather use these terms like: “OK, in five years, you’ll be cured.

~ Dr. David Johnson, deputy director of Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

 Survive for more than 20 to 25 years, you can consider yourself cured!

The limit of dormancy appears to be between 20 and 25 years, and the patient surviving that long without recurrence or contralateral cancer is probably cured.

~ Theodore Karrison,, D.J. Ferguson, P. Meier. J Nat Cancer Inst. v:91, 6 Jan. 1999.




Alcohol’s cancer toll revealed

PARIS, Nov 3 — Alcohol consumption caused more than 700,000 new cancer cases and around 366,000 cancer deaths in 2012, mainly in rich countries, according to data reported yesterday to the World Cancer Congress in Paris.

Comparing the cancer risk of people who drink, to that of people who do not, researchers calculated that alcohol was responsible for an estimated five per cent of all new cancer cases, and 4.5 per cent of deaths per year.

“A large part of the population is unaware that cancer can be caused by alcohol,” study co-author Kevin Shield of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), told AFP of the preliminary report, not yet published.

Alcohol was most strongly linked to new breast cancer diagnoses — more than one in four of all alcohol-attributable cancer cases, the researchers found, followed by colorectal cancer at 23 per cent.

For breast cancer, particularly, it was clear that “the risk increases with the dose” of alcohol, said Shield.

Fresh and processed meats have the potential to cause cancer



Red and processed meats have the potential to cause cancer in humans, according to a report by a World Health Organization agency that is drawing ire from meat industry groups that argue the science is inadequate.

The determination, published by a panel of researchers for the International Agency for Research on Cancer in a medical journal Monday, classifies processed meat products like salami and bacon carcinogenic to humans, the strongest level of risk for cancer, and a category shared with tobacco smoke and diesel engine exhaust.

Fresh meats like steaks and roasts are considered probably cancer-causing, a level of risk shared with the widely used herbicide glyphosate.

The IARC, considered an authority in evaluating evidence on cancer causation cited studies that conclude there is strong evidence to support a link between eating too much meat and the onset of colorectal cancer, the third-most common type world-wide.


“The link to cancer is supported by increasingly compelling research,” wrote Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at New York University who wasn’t involved in the IARC report, in an email. “There seem to be many reasons to eat less beef, climate change among them, but cancer is a more personal worry.”

The results by the 22-person panel, which consisted of scientists from 10 nations, already have drawn criticism from meat and food industry groups that have braced for such decisions for years, in part by funding research on the benefits of eating meat.

The meat industry has battled international and U.S. health authorities on the place of meat in a balanced diet for decades.



Natural News readers learned about processed meat causing cancer TEN YEARS AGO… mainstream media just figured it out this week

Natural News readers knew a decade ago what the mainstream media is finally reporting only this week. Processed meat causes cancer, we’re now being told. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified processed meat as being just as dangerous to your health as tobacco smoke.

Some of the processed meat products that contain cancer causing sodium nitrite

• Bacon
• Sausage
• Pepperoni
• Beef jerky
• Deli slices
• Hot dogs
• Sandwich meat (including those served at restaurants)
• Ham
• Meat “gift” products like Christmas sausages
• Meat used in canned soups
• Meat used in frozen pizza
• Meat used in kid’s lunch products
• Meat used in ravioli, spaghetti or Italian pasta products


Sausages, ham, bacon and other processed meats leads to early death / cancer / heart disease?

People who eat a lot of processed meat such as ham, bacon, sausages and burgers run a greater risk of premature death and developing conditions such as cancer and heart disease, research shows.

It concluded diets high in processed meats were linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer and early deaths.

The researchers, writing in the journal BMC Medicine, said salt and chemicals used to preserve the meat may damage health.

Cancer Is Not A Disease! — It’s A Survival Mechanism

What Is Cancer? A Shocking Truth…

What Is Cancer? Learn the truth that you probably never thought about. Cancer is natural. It is a natural response to an unnatural environment. So what is cancer? What the video and find out. And don’t forget to share with your loved ones.



Cancer Is Not A Disease! — It’s A Survival Mechanism

According to Andreas Moritz, cancer is a desperate and final attempt by the body to stay alive for as long as circumstances permit — circumstances that are, in fact, in your control.

Today’s conventional approaches of killing, cutting or burning cancerous cells offer a mere 7% “success” rate for cancer remission, and the majority of the few survivors are “cured” for just a period of five years or less.

In his book, you will discover what actually causes cancer and why it is so important to heal the whole person, not just the symptoms of cancer. You will also learn that cancer occurs only after all other defense mechanisms in the body have failed, for obvious reasons. A malignant tumor is not a vicious monster that is out to kill us in retaliation for our sins or abuse of our body. As you will find out, cancer does not attempt to kill the body; to the contrary, it tries to save it. However, unless we change our perception of what cancer really is, it will continue to threaten the life of one out of every two people.


The Island Where People Forget to Die

One day in 1976, Moraitis felt short of breath. Climbing stairs was a chore; he had to quit working midday. After X-rays, his doctor concluded that Moraitis had lung cancer. As he recalls, nine other doctors confirmed the diagnosis. They gave him nine months to live. He was in his mid-60s.

Moraitis considered staying in America and seeking aggressive cancer treatment at a local hospital. That way, he could also be close to his adult children. But he decided instead to return to Ikaria, where he could be buried with his ancestors in a cemetery shaded by oak trees that overlooked the Aegean Sea. He figured a funeral in the United States would cost thousands, a traditional Ikarian one only $200, leaving more of his retirement savings for his wife, Elpiniki. Moraitis and Elpiniki moved in with his elderly parents, into a tiny, whitewashed house on two acres of stepped vineyards near Evdilos, on the north side of Ikaria.

World Health Organization declares diesel fumes cause lung cancer

Diesel fumes cause lung cancer, the World Health Organization declared Tuesday, and experts said they were more carcinogenic than secondhand cigarette smoke.
The WHO decision, the first to elevate diesel to the “known carcinogen” level, may eventually affect some U.S. workers who are heavily exposed to exhaust. It is particularly relevant to poor countries, where trucks, generators, and farm and factory machinery routinely belch clouds of sooty smoke and fill the air with sulfurous particulates.

Diesel engines power commerce and transportation around the world, but the exhaust they produce can prove deadly. The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on Tuesday that it now classifies diesel exhaust as a cause of cancer. While major advances in technology have helped clean up some diesel pollution in the United States, the findings could have serious implications for developing countries still relying on dirty diesel power.
