Cancer: The epidemic

A ketogenic diet is a very low-carb diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine.

The statistics for cancer are staggering. There are more than 2 million new cases diagnosed every year in the U.S. One in 20 people developed cancer in the 1920s; one in 16 in the 1940s, one in 10 in the 1970s and now one in three will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their lives. And western medicine is nowhere near to finding a cure.

The average cancer patient spends $250,000 in medical bills, making the cancer industry billions of dollars every year. That is why I agree with Dr. Joseph Mercola who states that this is the reason there is no real motivation to find a cure.

I also agree with retired orthopedic surgeon Dr. Loraine Day who believes research organizations have no motivation to find a cure because if one is found, the funding will stop and researchers would be out of a job. Meanwhile, researchers rake in millions to keep looking for a cure.

According to Dr. Don Colbert, a medical doctor who treats cancer naturally, there are natural treatments that have been used successfully. Dr. Day agrees with this data as well as numerous other physicians. The natural treatments that have been used successfully have been kept away from the public, and smear campaigns have been used against the doctors who use those methods in order to discredit them.

With the traditional cancer treatment, two out of three patients will be dead within five years. After chemotherapy and radiation are performed, Dr. Colbert states that a patient’s immune system is so depressed that within five years the patient often contracts a more aggressive form of cancer such as leukemia.

However, the medical community will still say the patient was cured if they no longer have the original type of cancer, even though it has metamorphosed into something worse.

According to Dr. Mercola, “any viable natural treatment is met with massive opposition by the pharmaceutical and medical industries.” He also states that the FDA is now funded by the drug companies and restricts competition in the guise of protecting the public when they are really protecting the profits of the drug companies.

The best way to slow the cancer machine down is prevention. What is missing most of the time from traditional cancer treatment is nutritional therapy. There are more than 80,000 chemicals in the food and water we consume daily, and with the huge consumption of sugar products by most Americans, no wonder there is a cancer epidemic.

Traditional oncology does not tell the patients to avoid chemicals. They also certainly do not tell their patients to give up sugar and carbohydrates, which actually feed cancer. The reason a form of glucose is used when patients are given a PET (positron emission tomography) scan is that doctors know that the cancer cells are attracted to sugar, yet virtually no one tells their cancer patients to get off all forms of sugar.

According to Dr. Colbert, the most powerful way to beat cancer is to starve the cancer cells by depriving them of their food source. Cancer cells utilize carbohydrates for fuel and growth of new cells. Dr. Otto Warburg was given a Nobel Prize 75 years ago for discovering this phenomenon, but almost no oncologist uses this information.

University of South Florida professor Dominic D’Agostino, Ph.D. states that great results have been obtained with cancer patients by integrating a ketogenic diet with hyperbaric oxygen, which he reports is deadly to cancer cells. In the ketogenic diet, you eliminate all carbohydrates including not just sugar and sugar-containing foods, but also eliminate alcohol, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and many fruits as well. In other words, one must eliminate anything that breaks down to sugar in the blood.

Dr. Day states that one must go on an organic vegan diet. She actually beat breast cancer many years ago by eliminating sugar and meat from her diet and by consuming mostly dark green leafy vegetables. She received no surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.

Another natural treatment Dr. Colbert recommends is a daily high dose of vitamin C.

I advise anyone with cancer to go on YouTube and watch Dr. Colbert’s videos and the interview of the oncology nurse who quit her job after discovering nutritional cures for cancer. Also, be sure to watch Dr. Day’s videos to hear her story. I feel that you will find the aforementioned videos enlightening.
