    John Hopkins Update -

    AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY ('TRY', BEING THE KEY WORD) TO ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY.

    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 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, 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.

    CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

    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 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 a

    Actually, JH has said no such thing. It's fiction designed to sell crap.

    http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/j/johnshopkinscancer.htm

    Not everything you read on The Internet is true.

    If it sounds like crap; looks like crap; it's likely crap.

    I encourage you to visit John Hopkins at

    http://webapps.jhu.edu/jhuniverse/news_and_publications/

    for more reliable information.

    You should do your homework before posting this garbage.

    If you'd like to read more about this well known hoax, read here:

    As a biochemical research scientist, this misinformation has just killed part of my soul.

    Some of this stuff isn't just misinformation; it's flat-out wrong.

    A strong immune system can't prevent all cancers, or even most cancers. One of the points of cancer is that it bypasses your immune system because cancer is your own cells, and your healthy body doesn't attack itself.

    Having cancer in no way indicates multiple or even single nutritional deficiencies.

    While not always, chemotherapy and radiation treatment do fully destroy tumors in many cases.

    Chemotherapy and radiation don't make cancer "harder to kill".

    You absolutely cannot 'starve' a cancer. You can try, but you'll end up starving your healthy tissue, as cancer cells will greedily consume any nutrition at a faster rate due to their unrestricted cell division. Forget cutting out sugar or milk, or adding honey. It matters not. In the end, your body will make the food you put into your mouth into glucose, and it will deliver the glucose to all your cells via blood. Enzymes _all_ breakdown at vastly different temperatures, but it doesn't matter, because your stomach acids breaks down the vast majority of enzymes you eat. Also, you cannot put the body into an "alkaline environment", pH is strictly regulated throughout all tissues. Distilled water isn't truely acidic or basic; since it has no metals and no buffering agents, it will adopt the pH of your body. But don't drink distilled water because it's too pure, it will dilute out your electrolytes.

    The meat thing again, really? Meat does not do undigested. The more adventurous of you can verify this in your toilet. Meat does not sit around in the intestines.

    I don't even know what to say about the "protein coating", or how that idea evolved. The digestive enzymes from your stomach don't leave it and magically travel to your specific cancer organ.

    Cancer is a metabolic disease, of the cells of your own body, growing and splitting, replicating, in an uncontrolled fashion, due to damage to your genome (DNA). The damage can be inherited from your parents, it can also be environmental, from radiation or cigarette smoking.

    Yes, chemotherapy is a horrible, shitty treatment. Yes, radiation is a horrible, shitty treatment. They are poisons, one figuratively and one literally. However, they are the best tools in the medical toolbox at this time. And I daresay, the survival rate for patients that have chemotherapy is a bit, just a bit higher, that cancer patients that cut back on drinking milk.
