CANCER STORY: Success & Hard Truth


Kill Cancer Cells, Kill Patients Too


Dr. John Lee wrote: Chemotherapy is an attempt to poison the body just short of death in the hope of killing the cancer before the entire body is killed.

Most of the time it doesn’t work. 

Der Spiegel, 4 Oktober 2004 had this article: Giftkur ohne Nutzen(The Useless Poisonous Cures): Increasingly sophisticated and expensive cellular poisons are being given to seriously ill patients … patients do not actually live a day longer.


 This is what it is like if a chemo-drug spills onto an unprotected hand.

 The photos below show what could happen if the chemo-drugs leak out at the point of injection.



Patients Die of Chemotherapy

Alan Levin, professor of immunology, University of California Medical School said:

  • Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. 
  • Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancers. 
  • This fact has been documented for over a decade. 
  • Yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumours. 
  • Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemotherapy than without it.


Cancer Drugs Don’t Work in All Patients…

They are only effective in 25% of pateints.

What happen to the remaining 75%?

Allen Rose, worldwide vice-president of Glaxo-SmithKline said:

  • Drugs in the market don’t work in everybody.
  • More than 90% of drugs only work in 30 to 50% of the people.
  • Drugs for cancer are only effective in 25% of the patients.

Chemo-drugs are lousy

Quotations from Enter TheZone by Barry Sears, Ph.D.

  • Everybody knows that our present cancer drugs are lousy ~ Wolfgang Wrasidlo, director of drug development, Scripps Clinic, La Jolla, California, pg. 164
  • The existing treatments for cancer are probably the most barbaric in modern medicine, pg. 166. 

The Contribution of Cytotoxic Chemotherapy

Writing in the journal of Clinical Oncology three doctors in the hospitals in Sydney, Australia, concluded:

  • It is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival.
  • The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.
  • The benefits of chemotherapy have been over-sold.
  • The emperor’s new clothes — can chemotherapy survive?

The Indiscriminate and Valueless Use of Chemotherapy 

Dr. Jeffrey Tobias, Clinical Director of the Meyerstein Institute of Oncology, UK, wrote:

  • It is, however, quite surprising how often the rule of “first do no harm” is ignored. 
  • Although there is a natural tendency to recommend treatment in every case, one needs to keep a clear head as to what, realistically, might be the consequences – both beneficial and harmful. 
  • We have moved on, I think, from the indiscriminate and largely valueless use of chemotherapy in situations where there could be no justification other than the physician’s desire to do something.

Does it mean that in the past, chemotherapy had been used on patients indiscriminately and that it was valueless? How about today?

What You Need to Know About Chemotherapy

Virtually all anti-cancer drugs are toxic and destroy the immune system.

They are poisonous and kill both the cancerous and the normal cells.

They attack the bone marrow destroying the white blood cells (which fight infection), the red blood cells (which carry oxygen), and the platelets (which help blood to clot).

Patients undergoing chemotherapy may die of pneumonia or common infection.

Death from toxicity is also common. In one study, 10% of 133 patients died as a result of direct toxicity to the chemo­drug 5FU.

They can cause secondary cancers (such as gastrointestinal tract, ovaries and lungs) five, ten or 15 years after the successful chemotherapy.

Long term effects of chemotherapy can include heart damage and increased risks of recurrence.

Patients Without Chemotherapy Live Longer

Professor Hardin Jones, prominent cancer researcher and professor of Physics at the University of California surveyed global cancer of all types and compared the untreated and the treated. He came to this conclusion:

  • … in terms of life expectancy, the chance of survival (after undergoing radiation, chemotherapy or surgery) is no better with than without treatment, and there is the possibility that treatment may make the survival time less.
