Cancer: Different perspectives – conventional vs. natural treatments.

Cancer is a frightening word and a very prevalent disease these days. We often wonder why it is so widespread, and treatment with chemotherapy is often worse than the disease. Natural cures are often scoffed at by the medical profession. Below is an extract from an interesting insight into many aspects of cancer - including what causes cancer in the first place and Natural Cures vs. Traditional. To read the full article by Dr Tim O’Shea, click on the link at the bottom - it makes compelling reading. - Werner

BIOPSY VS. ENCAPSULATION. (excerpt)
If the new cancer persists past the immune system, the body has a second line of defence that kicks in: Encapsulation.

It’s this exact natural mechanism of protective encapsulation that is vehemently disregarded by conventional medicine whenever cancer is suspected. It is usually a lump. We have to biopsy it, they cry, to see whether or not it’s cancerous. And immediately! Why?

First of all, by the time any lump is big enough to be detected; it has usually been there for at least a year, maybe several. So what’s the rush? Why not see how your body handles it, unmodified by human experimentation? If it remains unchanged over time, chances are the encapsulation can eventually be resorbed, or at least permanently walled off.

The act of biopsy physically violates the body’s evolutionary powers of self-protection by exposing the tumour to all the other tissues the needle had to pass through, both on the way in and on the way out. Any protective encapsulation is thereby breached and contaminated. This virtually invites metastasis: cancer spreading to adjacent tissue.

It is well documented that tumours can be encapsulated for an individual’s entire life, never becoming active. These common sense empirical notions are simply not entertained, not deemed worthy of consideration by the specialists who are anxious to let the billing cycles begin as soon as possible.

The medical philosophy behind biopsy is classic General Motors thinking: the body is a car, made up of unrelated, non-living, inert parts. What we do here will have no effect on anything else. If a lump is discovered, anywhere, your phone will ring off the hook day and night until you agree to get the biopsy. The patient is not allowed to get too comfortable with the notion that the more time goes by without treatment, the better he feels. Or that the body actually has powerful resources of healing all its own, encapsulation being one of them.

You want to see some fancy double talking, bring this subject up with your oncologists. They’ll be very worried you even thought of it, and will go to extreme lengths to convince you that your body does not have this power of walling off invaders and tumours, despite what conventional science, reflected in all physiology texts, has maintained for the past 100 years.

Consider delaying biopsy until some visible, perceptible health change warrants such an invasive and potentially carcinogenic procedure. What’s the worst that could happen by doing that? Few people die of cancer; most die of cancer treatment. That’s the far greater danger, statistically. If you have cancer, guess which system is the most important to you at this time, more than it’s ever been before in your whole life. Right – your immune system. Guess which system suffers the most from chemotherapy and radiation. Right again. So the one time in your life you most need it, your immune system will be weakened by those therapies. Billions of free radicals, destroying your cells. That’s what the word cytotoxic means.

WHAT CAUSES CANCER IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Here’s where the dog and pony show comes in. The traditional cover story is that we don’t know what causes cancer so therefore we have to keep spending $100 billion per year to look for the cause. In reality the opposite is true. The true causes of cancer are well known, well documented and have been for decades. What alters normal DNA? How do normal cells become persistent mutant cells, which grow tumours? There are thousands of everyday DNA-altering, carcinogenic situations, well researched. Let’s list just a few: 60,000 chemicals in our air, food, and water, vaccines,  processed foods, Genetically Modified foods, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications,tobacco, air pollution, fluoridated water. pesticides on produce, herbicides on produce, chlorine and, other contaminants in our water.

If fruits and vegetables are not marked organic, they are sprayed. What do you think happens with all those tons of military-grade commercial pesticides sprayed onto the crops, poisons which cling to the plant? When it rains, the poison washes down into the soil, is taken up by the plant and becomes part of the plant. And they tell you just wash the fruit before you eat it and it’ll be fine? Come on! And this is what we feed our kids, and all this is legal. These poisons alter human DNA. [Smith, 55] With vaccines, it’s deliberate cell invasion: attenuated or mutated antigens injected into the child’s blood. Sixty-eight vaccines before age 18 [Vaccination Is Not Immunization [4]

Looking for a cure for cancer – who are we kidding? A cure for cancer that will enable us to continue defiling our blood with all the above carcinogenic substances, right? Cure for cancer? Step one: stop poisoning your blood with the causes!
CANCER INCIDENCE.
In 1900, cancer was practically unheard of in this country. By 1950, there were about 150 cases of cancer per 100,000 population. In 1971, Nixon introduced his War on Cancer, opening the floodgates of massive research funding backed by the government. This situation escalated until by the 1980s, over $50 billion per year was being spent to “find the cure.” A pittance, compared to the $300 billion today. [9]

We’re hit with endless media stories about progress in this war on cancer with new “breakthrough” drugs and miracle procedures being right around the corner… And of course the ever-present ‘new’ experimental drugs offered to almost every cancer patient. It’s astounding how each new generation of cancer patients keeps falling for the same lame rap, year after year. A combination of fear and ignorance is what keeps this train rolling.

Independent analysis by the CA Journal for Cancer Clinicians, Jan 97, [16] put the 1993 death rate at 220 per 100,000. Does that sound like progress? Yeah, progress for the disease. Jumping ahead now to 2000, the overall rate had climbed to 321 per 100,000— [45] OECD Health Data 2010.  Yet all the journal articles will say the opposite – that cancer rates are falling.

CANCER IN CHILDREN.
Before the 1960s, cancer in children was virtually unheard of. With the skyrocketing number of vaccines and drugs given to children, and the proliferation of snack foods and processed foods in the child diet, by the year 2000 we have the astounding figure of 89.5 deaths per 100,000 population, for all types of cancer combined, below age 19. ([46] CDC website 2010) Cancer is now the #1 cause of death in children, according to the CDC! [2] Try finding that figure quoted in monkey media…. As we saw, a hundred years ago, cancer was virtually unknown in the U.S. (And anywhere else) At that time people relied more on whole foods, unrefined and generally in their original form.

Suddenly, processed foods became a greater and greater proportion of the American diet right after the First World War, first in the canning industry, which later developed into the food processing industry. This was when pasteurization, chemical additives, bleaching, and other adulterating processes were introduced into mass food production. The idea was to make food last on the shelves as long as possible, thereby increasing overall profits. The way this was done was by removing the natural enzymes contained in the food, resulting in adulterated de-vitalized non-foods becoming the new standard.Enzymes are what determines a food’s value. See Enzymes chapter.

As more and more sophisticated methods of removing enzymes from food were discovered, shelf life increased, and food value decreased. What does all this have to do with cancer? I’m getting to that. When food that is difficult to digest is forced into the body, month after month, year after year, our own digestive system struggles valiantly to try to break down all these weird, man-made foods that have only this century appeared on the human scene. But eventually the system gets overtaxed, and wears out. The sludge accumulates in the digestive tract. Before long, we start absorbing the indigestible foods into the bloodstream, intact. Big problem!

One of the first signs of the chronic absorption of processed foods into the blood is clumping together of red blood cells. In normal blood, the red cells should be freely movable, and unattached, in order to carry oxygen to all the cells of the body. But the accumulation of undigested protein in the blood makes these red blood cells stick together, like stacks of coins, or like globs of motor oil. Once it gets like this, the blood tends to stay aggregated. Imagine the difficulty, for the blood to circulate. The smallest blood vessels through which the blood has to pass each time around are the capillaries. Unfortunately, the diameter of a capillary is only the same as one of the red blood cells – they’re supposed to circulate in single file. So what happens in a body whose red cells are all stuck together for a few years? The tissues of the body become oxygen-deprived.
OXYGEN.Are we talking about cancer yet? We sure are. Nobel laureate Dr. Otto Warburg discovered in the 1920s [5] what all researchers now know: most cancers cannot exist well in an oxygen-rich environment. Why is it that people don’t die of cancer of the heart? Just doesn’t happen. Why not? Because that’s where the most highly oxygenated blood is, and cancer doesn’t like oxygen. The more anaerobic the environment, the more favourable to cancer growth.

Even more conducive to cancer is a setting of fermentation. That means half-digested carbohydrates. Every bootlegger knows that as sugars ferment, they bubble. The bubbles are the oxygen leaving. Cancer doesn’t like oxygen too well, but it loves sugar. Starting to get the picture here? Fermentation means half-digested, oxygen-poor. This oxygen-deprived environment is perfect for cancer – it thrives in it. Fermentation creates an acidic environment and keeps oxygen away. Remember we talked about all that undigested food accumulating in the gut and in the bloodstream because of not enough enzymes? Well, a lot of that food was carbohydrate – you know, donuts, beer, candy, ice cream, Pepsi, bread, dairy, pastries, etc.
Worse yet, the white cells, which are supposed to circulate as the immune system, become trapped in all this congestion. Their job? Right, to identify and attack foreign proteins immediately. A cancer cell is foreign protein, disguised as a local. This is why taking enzymes 3x a day is absolutely fundamental in any holistic approach to cancer.

ACID/ALKALINE.
Another factor is pH. Acid-forming foods, such as the above, make the blood more acidic. To sustain life, human blood pH must be in the range of 7.3 – 7.45 (Guyton [19] ). Outside that range, we’re dead. Remember, the lower the number, the more acidity. The more acid the blood is, the less oxygen it contains, and the faster a person ages and degenerates. See the chapter called The Three Attributes of Water.

There’s a major difference in oxygen even within the narrow range of “normal’ blood pH: blood that is pH 7.3 actually has 69.4% less oxygen than 7.45 blood, according to Whang’s classic book, Reverse Aging. [47] On a practical level, this means we should do everything to keep the pH on the high side of the range, as close as possible to 7.45, by eating as many alkaline foods as possible. That would be, you guessed it – live, raw foods, especially green foods. As well as drinking alkalized water, of course. See Hydration and Dehydration chapter. [48]

It’s not about raising blood pH; it’s about conserving the metabolic energy of the body for more important tasks than the burden of this constant buffering it is forced to maintain due to all the acid forming processed foods.
That’s the faintest sketch about enzyme deficiency and acid-forming foods as primary causes of creating a favourable environment in which cancer can grow. Please look at the cited chapters for the whole story. End of excerpt.

To vaccinate or not that is the question.

Vaccination has become a controversial subject. Some say it is beneficial and others say it has dangerous health consequences – all depending on who is talking. I do not tell you whether you should vaccinate or not, but the following might help you to decide. I, for instance, had a flu injection 7 years ago and subsequently became very sick with the flu. Since then I have refused to be vaccinated. I learned that baking soda kills the flu virus. I take a quarter tea spoon of it in a glass of water three times a day if I feel flu symptoms coming on and, I never had the flu for seven years. Bicarbonate of Soda.
Baking Soda in daily health.

Here is a link about a ship full of sailors who had their mandatory anti flu injection – yet many of them got the flu. Read more.

I also know people whose children’s health was permanently damaged by vaccines. Here is what a friend wrote to me: As a parent of a vaccine-harmed child, I take exception to decrying those who avoid vaccinations.  There was the death of 12 Bundaberg children following vaccination. Eighteen were made seriously ill:  two sons from one family died.  Their mother was unable to attend their funeral because she had to remain at the bedside of their gravely-ill sibling. Collateral damage from flu vaccinations in the last three years includes a WA child left with brain damage rendering the child life-long incapable of caring for herself. Please Google “The vaccine hoax is over” and read the shocking truth about vaccinations that was obtained by a doctor under the UK’s FOI Act. - Werner

Vaccine flu shots still contains 25 micrograms mercury - 100 times the concentration of 'mercury-loaded' fish. 

By S. D. Wells

(NaturalNews) Nobody asks the nurse for the box or the insert when they get a flu shot. At least, I've never known anyone who said they did or do. Why not? We flip over food and beverage products all the time, to check for contaminants or stuff that we're allergic to. Millions of Americans (And Australians) are getting injected every year with 100 times the mercury they're worried about in fish, because they read about the salmon or tuna in some newspaper clip or saw a quick spot on the news.

Now remember, since most of the mercury in the food will be processed by your body with the food, you may only retain 10 percent of the toxic heavy metal. But when the nurse, who doesn't offer you to look at the box or read the insert, jabs that needle into your upper arm and rubs it with a little cotton swab, while that nurse tries to help you avoid the flu, you're actually getting something much MORE dangerous to your health (mainstream, "lame-stream" media cannot and will not talk about this).

Intramuscular injections contain 100 times the concentration of mercury you find in certain fish.
If you're a flu shot "frequenter" -- meaning that you get one nearly every fall or winter, you are actually doing the opposite of what the flu "industry" (CDC) tells you on the insert and the box inside which the influenza vaccine comes. Yes, read it and you will know. Ask the nurse and have him/her leave the room while you review it. The flu shot warning tells you NOT to get the shot again if you've already had it. It doesn't say how recently, or even whether that was when you were a child. It just flat out tells you not to get another one. So where does that put us with the whole vaccine schedule when you get 25 to 30 vaccines, including some flu shots, before the age of six? How much mercury are you getting and did you get, cumulatively, over the years? Is this why they warn you on the box and insert? (http://www.vaxchoicevt.com)

Have you gotten a FluLaval shot EVER before? Will you ever again? Natural health news enthusiasts are concerned for you. The ultimate health pioneer is looking out for you and is researching exactly which neurotoxins the "Medical-Industrial Complex" of the USA is pushing through those needles into the muscle tissue of kids, babies and pregnant women. Health Ranger Mike Adams uncovers this awful truth in the forensic food lab, where he tests everything from flu shots to Chicken McNuggets and Wheaties metal flakes! This is top-notch research being shared for the millions who follow Natural News and spread the word. Thanks, Mike, for all you do, digging into research that protects us from the hidden nightmares that Big Pharma besieges upon us.

You thought mercury-loaded fish were bad for you, try a flu shot! Do you take the wrong kind of fish oil supplements? Threats from mercury are greater at lower levels than thought in the past. People go out to eat at restaurants and don't even think twice about where the fish comes from. They eat tuna out of cans and can't figure out their health problems, or the root causes. Then, they go and do something really dumb -- they get a flu shot. How can something so popular be such a "common-senseless" thing to do? Maybe because the people getting them are still mentally challenged from the last one they got?

How would you like to "consume" 25,000 times as much mercury (level) as is the maximum allowed by the EPA for water? By injecting mercury into your blood directly, it also bypasses digestion, lung filtration and other natural defenses that your body would rather use to combat this heavy metal toxic nightmare. We are talking about 51 parts per million of inorganic mercury, but it's supposed to help you fight off the flu, which your body should already be able to do just fine, if you weren't eating GMOs daily and getting vaccines yearly!

An insight into G20 in Brisbane Australia.

Many Australians are asking if the cost in preparing this event, and the deployment of six thousand police and other security personal was worth the cost. Many of us mere mortals have wondered what this "talkfest” is all about, especially as there was another one only a few days ago in China. No doubt, politicians love to travel at great cost to their respective taxpayers.

Following is an interesting and elucidating article about this event. After you have read it, you may well consider keeping your money under your bed and avoid taking it to the bank. At the end is a link for you to read the whole article. - Werner
****
WARNING!
Bank Deposits Will Soon No Longer Be Considered Money But Paper Investments.
What does this mean?
Kenneth Schortgen Jr. explains:
This weekend the G20 nations will convene in Brisbane, Australia to conclude a week of Asian festivities that began in Beijing for the developed countries and major economies. And on Sunday, the biggest deal of the week will be made as the G20 will formally announce new banking rules that are expected to send shock waves to anyone holding a checking, savings, or money market account in a financial institution.

On Nov. 16, the G20 will implement a new policy that makes bank deposits on par with paper investments, subjecting account holders to declines that one might experience from holding a stock or other security when the next financial banking crisis occurs. Additionally, all member nations of the G20 will immediately submit and pass legislation that will fulfil this program, creating a new paradigm where banks no longer recognize your deposits as money, but as liabilities and securitized capital owned and controlled by the bank or institution.

In essence, the Cyprus template of 2011 will be fully implemented in every major economy, and place bank depositors as the primary instrument of the next bailouts when the next crisis occurs...

For most Americans with savings or checking accounts in federally insured banks, normal FDIC rules on deposit insurance are still in play, but anyone with over $250,000 in any one account, or held offshore, will have their money automatically subject to bankruptcy disbursements from the courts based on a much lower rank of priority, and a much lower percentage of return.

This also includes business accounts, money market accounts, and any depository investments such as a certificate of deposit (CD)...

 After Sunday at the G20 meeting, the risks of holding any cash in a bank or financial institution will have to be weighed as heavily and with as much determination of risk as if you were holding a stock or municipal bond, which could decline in an instant should the financial environment bring a crisis even remotely similar to that of 2008.

Coconut oil -10 Life Improving Uses.

Coconut oil is renowned for being a healthy, flavourful
alternative to butter and other cooking oils. For us, it has replaced butter some time ago. Since coconuts grow exclusively in the tropics, we can easily say that it is full of sunshine. But as you’ll see; there are 10 things you probably didn't know you can do with coconut oil. This is certainly a very good “nut” - metaphorically speaking.

Read also my previous posting of April 2013 – “The coconut; loaded with nutrients & health benefits”. – Werner
***
Coconut oil is an unbelievably versatile substance which most of us only know a bit about. It can be used for cooking as well as keep you healthy and beautiful. With plenty of antibacterial and anti-fungal ingredients, coconut oil offers many simple and natural ways to improve your life.
1. Cooking:

What many people don't know about using coconut oil for cooking is that it has a high heating point. This means that the oil does not oxidize until 450 degrees Fahrenheit (252 degrees Celsius) and so it keeps more of its nutritious values after being cooked. You can replace any oil, in just about any recipe, with coconut oil for a healthier meal.
2. Moisturize your body and face:
If you start using coconut oil regularly, you can say goodbye to your flaky, dry skin. Coconut oil is a great, all natural, moisturizer for your face and body. It will not cause your skin to be oily but rather boost its collagen production, keeping your skin healthy and the wrinkles at bay.
3. Aids weight loss:
Coconut oil is a great source for a healthy fat with no trans fats called medium chain triglyceride (MCT). The MCT acid particles immediately go to the liver after eating them, increasing the energy and metabolism in your body. Take a few tablespoons of coconut oil a day and help your body get back into shape.
4. Toothpaste:
Mix coconut oil with baking soda, and you get a home-made toothpaste with the antibacterial and anti-fungal properties of the oil. Store it in a cool place as it will turn into liquid at about 74 degrees Fahrenheit (23 degrees Celsius). You don’t have to use it all the time; just a few times a week will supplement your dental care greatly, along with your normal toothpaste.
5. Hair conditioner:
Just as coconut oil can moisturize your body and face, it can also help your hair. Rub it into your hair and wait for about 15 minutes then wash, shampoo, rinse and style it as you always do. This will make your hair healthy and shiny, as well as give you a wonderful fresh feeling.
6. Faster healing of cuts and sunburns:
Because it's a natural moisturizer and a collagen production aid, coconut oil is great for fixing damaged skin. Use coconut oil with a drop or two of lavender oil to keep your skin from peeling off after sunburn, and heal cuts faster than ever.
7. Aids breastfeeding mothers:
Breast milk is key to the development of newborn babies. Consuming coconut oil will increases your milk supply as the healthy fats are a key component to hormone production, which increases milk production.
8. Deodorant:
Apply coconut oil to the skin of your chest, neck and armpits to eliminate odours. The acid in the coconut oil will kill the odour- causing bacteria and help deal the body odour problem.
9. Replace the cream in your coffee:
You can use coconut oil, or coconut milk (but not from a can) as a healthy way to remove cream and fats from your coffee. This will not only increase your uptake of vitamins and nutrients but also add a rich, smooth nutty taste to your drink.
10. Body Scrub:
Mix equal amounts of coconut oil and sugar, and use it to scrub your body with it while in the bath or shower. This will help to exfoliate your skin and moisturize the new layer to make it soft and healthy.

Thought for food, Australia’s that is.

To find Australian produced food on supermarket shelves is becoming as rare as the proverbial “hen’s teeth”. If you are silent and do nothing then don’t complain when you can only get processed food from China and other foreign countries that use pesticides that are not permitted in Australia. Don’t be fooled when you read on a tin or package “Made or produced in New Zealand”. It should ring alarm bells with every Australian to see that Chinese grown vegetables are coming in branded as a product of New Zealand. Apart from this there will be job losses in the food growing and processing industries. We need this like a hole in the head. Heinz has abandoned Australia, we should boycott them.  Buy Dick Smith food. Click here to see who stocks them. Please read the following and circulate this widely. Werner
**
BUY ONLY BIRDSEYE AND EDGELL Think about this:-
The ONLY Australian manufacturer of frozen Australian grown vegetables (Simplot Australia) is not far from closing because a number of the other well-known Australian brands have moved their plants to New Zealand in order to capture the Chinese vegetable market where they market via New Zealand to Australian tables (without the food being labelled specifically as Chinese) and Simplot is finding it hard to compete.  This was shown on the program Landline on the ABC (Sunday 15/9).

SHOULD SIMPLOT CLOSE, THIS MEANS THAT NO AUSTRALIAN GROWN FROZEN VEGETABLES WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ALL AND WE WILL BE RELYING ON FOOD GROWN TOTALLY OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA. 

For a number of reasons this is not a good situation. Please read more about Simplot, click here and here.

1. As most people know, other countries do not necessarily have the strict guidelines for growing their vegetables that Australia has and by buying Australian we can be sure that lethal chemicals that may be used in other countries will not be used on Australian vegetables.

2. We would be keeping Australians in jobs.

3. If ever the world became unstable regarding wartime we would not be able to feed ourselves

It is imperative that we all support these Australian brands selling good Australian vegetable products (via Simplot).
Birdseye and Edgell. Next time you shop, please think about the future of Australian food. What do you reckon folks? Let’s buy Birdseye and Edgell.

Some of us love our designer labels.  We buy premium brand shoes, premium brand clothing and well known premium perfumes and handbags. BUT ... we also look to buy the cheapest food we can for our children to eat.  That doesn't make sense. This is so true, the farmers in Tasmania are extremely worried about Simplot's impending closure.

They also have a lone plant in Bathurst subjected to the same uncertainty. If these last remaining plants close, it means that China then has total control over our fresh/frozen veggie industry. Particularly disturbing to see that Chinese Grown vegetables are coming in branded as a product of New Zealand. This is known as Misleading and Deceptive Conduct – a crime!
