Useful Information About Cancer

Johns  Hopkins Update –  Very Good  Article

Cancer  Update from Johns  Hopkins :

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.  Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times  in a person's lifetime.

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 nutritional  deficiencies. These could be due to  genetic, to 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, gastrointestinal 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 soy 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 coffee, tea, and chocolate,  which have high caffeine Green  tea is  a better alternative e and 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 becomes putrefied 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 (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants,  vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies 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, un-forgiveness 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.

1. No  plastic  containers in  micro.

2. No  water bottles in  freezer.

3. No  plastic wrap in  microwave..

Johns  Hopkins has recently sent this out in its  newsletters. This information is being circulated  at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin  chemicals cause cancer, especially breast  cancer. Dioxins are highly  poisonous to the cells of our bodies.  Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in  them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.  Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program  Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to  explain this health  hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad  they are for us. He said that we should not be  heating our food in the microwave using plastic  containers. This especially applies to foods that  contain fat.. He said that the combination of fat,  high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the  food and ultimately into the cells of the body.  Instead, he recommends using glass, such as  Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for  heating food. You get the same results, only  without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant  ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the  container and heated in something else. Paper  isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper.  It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning  Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of  the fast food  restaurants moved away from the foam  containers to paper The dioxin problem is one of  the reasons.

Also,  he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as  Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over  foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food  is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to  actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip  into the food. Cover food with a paper towel  instead.
