Cancer Update from John Hopkins

Posted Aug 01 2008 12:06pm
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more

cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Healthy cells can be damaged and triggered to mutate (mutagenesis) and cause cancer by consuming or being exposed to free radicals. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system ofantioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9 When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder.

By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply

to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet,

Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is

harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey

or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has

a chemical added to make it white in color. Better

alternative is Bragg ' s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to

produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting

with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an

acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is

best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or

pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth

hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially

to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh

vegetables and juice, whole grains,seeds, nuts and a little

fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.About

20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh

vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily

absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15

minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To

obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and

drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean

sprouts)and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day.

Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F

(40 degrees C).

e. Avoid caffeine.Green tea has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins

and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic,

avoid it..

12. Meat protein is difficult

to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes.

Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become

putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a

tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less

meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of

cancer cells and allows the body ' s killer cells to

destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up

the immune system (Vitamin D3, pro-biotics, anti-oxidants,

zinc, resveratrol, lycopenes etc.) to enable the body ' s

own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements

like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed

cell death, the body ' s normal method of disposing of

damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of

the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit

will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger,

unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful

and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and

forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot

thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and

deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular

level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy

cancer cells.
