 - It’s no secret that the current most common methods of cancer treatment, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, have a vast number of unfortunate, painful, and even potentially fatal side effects. That’s why scientists and doctors continue to search for new treatments that not only have higher success rates than traditional methods, but that also come with far fewer (ideally, zero) side effects.

One of the most promising potential cancer treatments to date has been discovered by British doctors at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, England: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (Hifu), or sound wave therapy.

Hifu uses sound waves at frequencies above audible human limits to heat up the cells enough to kill them. These sound waves are 10,000 times higher frequency than those used during pregnancy to monitor fetal development or to see other organs. They heat up the cell to a temperature of about 55C for at least one second, just long enough to kill the cell. (1, 2, 3)

 -

In 2005, James Adair, professor of materials science and engineering, biomedical engineering, and pharmacology and partner Mark Kester, director of NanoStar Institute at the University of Virginia and former professor of pharmacology at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, founded the biopharmaceutical company Keystone Nano with the goal of gaining the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval for nanoscale biomedical products, the Penn State News website reported.

After years of research and testing, the FDA finally gave the green light to begin phase one human clinical trials to assess the use of ceramide nanoliposome as a possible cancer treatment. With the trials, Keystone Nano hopes to find safe dosing levels and examine the compound’s efficacy as an alternative cancer-fighting therapy.

A woman undergoes chemotherapy 

 - Chemotherapy could allow cancer to spread, and trigger more aggressive tumors, a new study suggests.

Researchers in the US studied the impact of drugs on patients with breast cancer and found medication increases the chance of cancer cells migrating to other parts of the body, where they are almost always lethal.

Around 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Britain every year and 11,000 will die from their illness.

Many are given chemotherapy before surgery, but the new research suggests that, although it shrinks tumours in the short term, it could trigger the spread of cancer cells around the body.

It is thought the toxic medication switches on a repair mechanism in the body which ultimately allows tumours to grow back stronger. It also increases the number of ‘doorways’ on blood vessels which allow cancer to spread throughout the body.

 - Has the Food and Drug Administration engineered a shortage of intravenous vitamin C as part of an overall attack on natural and non-toxic approaches to healing that compete with prescription drugs?

Natural Blaze claims that a critical shortage of IV bags in general followed an FDA ban on the mass production of intravenous vitamin C.

The FDA limited the availability of IV-C and the pharmaceutical industry halted production of injectable vitamins and minerals, after a 60 minute story about the miraculous recovery of a swine flu patient on life support.

 - Cannabis has been cultivated by man since neolithic times. For centuries, it has been rumoured to treat everything from inflammation to cancer.

But just how true are these claims? There are those that argue that cannabis is nothing more than a recreational drug that makes people high.

This viewpoint however, is not supported by the evidence. In actual fact, various scientific studies support the possibility that cannabis may be effective in triggering cell death, through a mechanism called apoptosis.

There are also many studies which claim that cannabis may be effective in preventing metastasis (the spread of cancer cells).

 - Cancer cells are always present in the human body, however, they are typically recognized by the immune system and destroyed before they cause any problems. It is when cancer cells go unrecognized and begin to multiply that they become a burden. Cancer cells differ from healthy cells in critical ways that make them harmful to the body and this article will help you understand how this cellular dysfunction occurs.

Cancer cells are unlike any other cell in the body and they act totally out of line with normal cell functions. As they develop, they begin to ignore the signals sent by the body telling them when and when not to grow or even when to die.

When they are allowed to accumulate they begin to stray even further from normal acquiring unique traits.

 - Taking antibiotics may increase your risk of developing bowel cancer by up to 73 percent, according to a recent study. Bowel cancer, more commonly known as colorectal cancer, is a type of cancer that starts in the colon or rectum. It was recognized as the third most common cancer in the U.S. Data from a new study revealed that there will be an estimated 95,520 new cases of colon cancer and 39,910 new cases of rectal cancer in the country.

Researchers pooled data from the Nurses Health Study and found that undergoing antibiotic treatment between 15 days to two months increased the risk of developing adenomas or polyps by up to 36 percent in women aged 20 to 39 years. Study data also showed that the risk of adenoma diagnosis increased by up to 69 percent in women who had long-term antibiotic treatment in their forties or fifties. The overall risk of adenoma diagnosis was 73 percent higher in women who had long-term antibiotic treatment compared with those who did not take the drug, according to the study. However, more studies are needed to confirm the findings, researchers said.

 - In a shocking new discovery published in the scientific journal, Oncotarget, researchers have detailed how a single, inexpensive nutrient, Vitamin C, can completely halt the growth of cancer in stem cells when used in concentrated amounts. The vitamin is so amazing, it was found to be 1,000 percent more effective than one clinical drug that is currently prescribed all too often to treat cancer, and another that is pending U.S. FDA approval.

In layman’s terms, the study found that silibinin (an extract of milk thistle seeds), Vitamin C, and CAPE (caffeic acid phenethyl ester) were effective cancer treatments, but detailed elsewhere in the report, it was found that Vitamin C was 10 times more potent than 2-DG, an experimental pharmaceutical drug, for the targeting of cancerous stem cells.

 - Salvestrols are the wonder nutrients found in fruit and vegetables that hold potential as yet another safe, effective and natural cancer cure.

In 1995, Professor Dan Burke accidentally discovered that cancer cells contained an enzyme that was not found in normal healthy cells. Later on in 1997, after conducting extensive research with Professor Gerry Potter, he discovered that a certain type of polyphenyl (plant nutrient) found in fruit and vegetables was able to bind with this cancer enzyme – and subsequently destroy the cancer cell. The researchers decided to call this group of phytonutrients salvestrols (salve means to save and strol is derived from resveratrol, the first salvestrol).

Being the medicinal part of the plant, theses salvestrols taste bitter, which unfortunately means they have been bred out of existence in some strains of fruit (e.g. apples) by large-scale agro-corporate farming, which constantly tries to make everything sweeter to sell more product. Salvestrols belong to another subcategory called phytoalexins, which are substances produced by plants to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses, fungi, insects and ultraviolet light.

 - In recent years, we’ve focused heavily on educating our readers about the still relatively unknown role that cancer stem cells play in cancer, both in terms of conventional cancer treatment failure and the exceptionally promising role that natural interventions play in targeting these highly malignant cells.

It is encouraging to witness a growing awareness that cancer has been completely misunderstood, and that in order to make progress against the global epidemic we will have to go back to the wisdom of the ancients by using foods and spices instead of toxic chemicals and radiation to fight a disease that should be classified more as a survival mechanism unmasked than an inexorably lethal, genetically-driven condition. Even the National Cancer Institute now admits that it had been wrong for decades about “early stage” breast (DCIS) and prostate (HGPIN) “cancers,” and that they should be reclassified as indolent or benign lesions of epithelial origin, i.e. not “cancer” at all! Essentially, therefore, millions were overdiagnosed and overtreated for cancers they never had. Even now, despite this admission, the vast majority of conventional doctors have yet to account for, acknowledge, or integrate this radically different definition of cancer and its implications for treatment into their “standard of care.”

 - One aspect of healthcare is the cancer industry, and while people still scoff at the idea that there could be a suppression of cures and a lack of funding for proven alternative treatments, this is a fact that continues to come to light and is necessary for people to acknowledge if we are going to move forward and save millions of lives.

It’s important to accept the fact that, as Linus Pauling, Ph.D, and two time Nobel Prize winner in chemistry told us, that “most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organisations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.”

Unfortunately, doctors today are simply taught how to prescribe drugs. Although their knowledge of the human body and how it operates is fairly good, and they often have the best intentions at heart, they are often being used to push an agenda, and it’s one of the primary causes for the rise of disease in the past few decades. In fact, medical error is now the third leading cause of death in the US.

 - A recent cancer symposium, with a surgical focus, met in Boston to discuss how surgical oncology is experiencing “an exciting evolution and the ways in which we treat cancer are changing.”

However, there are indications that the cure for cancer may have already been found and that those who have it are keeping it close to their chests.

In order to support this contention, which may be seen as alarming and extreme, one must look at the rates of cancer among the general population and compare these to the rates of cancer deaths among world leaders.

And the latter is almost non-existent.
