SHOCKING STUDY IN 2016: Chemo Kills up to 51% of Patients within 30 days

cause of death

For decades now, many scientists have been raising red flags that chemotherapy can oftentimes do more harm than good, and in a surprisingly large number of cases, it simply does not work.

Dr. Hardin B. Jones, a former Professor of Medical Physics and Physiology at Berkeley, California, studied the impact of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery on the survival rates of cancer patients, and found that instead of prolonging lives, these treatments actually make the patients die almost four times sooner. This was found more than 40 years ago, and yet not much has changed in the way the hospitals treat cancer.

For terminal patients as well, a 2016 study in the peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society CANCER found that living at home instead of being treated at the hospital prolonged their lives by about 45%.

And now, a new study was just published earlier this month that analyzed 30-day mortality rates caused by the treatment itself: chemotherapy and chemotherapy plus radiation.

Cancer Study: Early Mortality Rate Caused by Chemotherapy

The study, published in The Lancet’s Oncology, looked at 23,228 breast and 9,634 lung cancer patients in England.

The results showed high death rates linked to the treatment, increased use of SACTs (systematic anticancer therapies – cytotoxic chemotherapy). The researchers stated it was due “poor clinical decision making.”

“Patients dying within 30 days after beginning treatment with SACT are unlikely to have gained the survival or palliative benefits of the treatment, and in view of the side-effects sometimes caused by SACT, are more likely to have suffered harm,” states the study.

The researchers write that while there a few patients who may have benefited from SACTs, there were too many who were harmed by it, or even killed by the treatment.

In 2014 , the year the study was researched, almost 1,400 patients in England died within 30 days of their first chemotherapy treatment. In some hospitals, the mortality rate was significantly higher than in the others: up to 51% of breast cancer patients died in Milton Keynes (although the number of total patients was small), and up to 29% of lung cancer patients died in Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

“Simply reducing doses of or avoiding SACT altogether would reduce or eliminate instances of treatment-related early mortality.”

The study was done after noticing a clear lack of data analyzing the risk versus gain of using chemotherapy and mortality rates caused by it in the first 30 days of treatment. As the researchers state, this is the first time this topic has been brought up and investigated at a national level.

The “million dollar questions” (or perhaps “billion dollar” since this is the cancer treatment industry we’re talking about) raised by the researchers included: is chemotherapy use still advocated based on small clinical studies — most sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry?

And it has never been fully studied how well it works in a real hospital setting?

Do Most Hospitals Know What They Are Even Doing?

The study points out two problems. One is that mortality rate is high due to poor clinical decisions. Perhaps because in most hospitals chemotherapy is given in a one-size-fits all manner or a fixed-dose with no consideration to a patient’s health history, and characteristics such as weight and age.

In England’s database, it was found that for many patients, the doctors did not include why the chemotherapy was given, and the overall health of the patient and the severity of their cancers was never recorded.

Both of these factors, as the study points out, could significantly change the outcome for these patients.

In America, another study found that doctors gave palliative chemotherapy to terminal cancer patients, and in at least two-third of cases, the patient did not know that the treatment could not cure them, but it only alleviated some symptoms, such as pain.

Knowing that the treatment could not help them in the end, would they have searched for alternative options that may have worked better?

Death Rates from Chemotherapy Are Rarely Properly Documented

The second issue the study found is that mortality rates are hard to analyze because they are not well or properly recorded.

In England’s case, many dates of deaths were simply missing from the national database. Some were documented twice, and the two dates did not match.

In America, the national statistic of cancer mortality comes from the death certificates. This is what the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) along with the doctors use to see how many people are die from cancer, and how many people die from the treatment. Unfortunately, the National Cancer Institute reports “cancer” as the cause of death for almost all cancer patients, regardless of what actually caused it, as pointed out in a 2002 article.

This article raised concern that “cancer death rates are systematically underestimated, in that many patients who die as a result of cancer treatment do not have cancer recorded as the underlying cause of death.”

For example, they studied patients who died within one month after a cancer-surgery between 1994 and 1998, and 41% of these deaths were not properly recorded. The authors write that cancer treatment was the likely cause of death.

“…Many deaths subsequent to 1 month after cancer-directed surgery may be similarly miscoded.”

Unfortunately, even though the study points out that many death certificates quote some condition other than cancer as the cause of death (such as liver failure), they want the cause of death to be just “cancer.” That would lead to further incorrect data as many patients do die from cancer treatments, and liver failure that would not happen from cancer, is often caused by the toxic chemo drugs. But what this study does show us, is that because of a 1999 revision in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), instead of a cancer or cancer-related death, death certificates now have to show the “underlying” cause of each death, such as: thromboembolism (blood vessel obstruction), infections, organ failures, and hemorrhage (excessive bleeding).This leads to improper classification and underestimated cancer death rates and statistics.

How many patients die from the treatment instead of cancer?

That is hard to say until every doctor and hospital begins classifying the causes of deaths correctly. Until then, it is important to keep studies like this in mind when considering pros and cons of starting a chemotherapy treatment.

There are more and more alternative options out there – and for many, they do work. (Just look up testimonials from the Nutritional Oncology Research Institute, or even studies on carotenoids antioxidants derived from natural sources, and even IV curcumin and sodium bicarbonate).

“I think it’s important to make patients aware that there are potentially life threatening downsides to chemotherapy. And doctors should be more careful about who they treat with chemotherapy,” writes one of the study’s co-authors, Professor David Dodwell, Institute of Oncology, St James Hospital, Leeds, UK.

Ginger is 10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer!

Ginger is 10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer!

Ginger is 10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer!

A new study reveals ginger contains a pungent compound that could be up to 10,000 times more effective than conventional chemotherapy in targeting the cancer stem cells at the root of cancer malignancy. 

The authors of the study further affirm these points:

“Cancer stem cells pose serious obstacle to cancer therapy as they can be responsible for poor prognosis and tumour relapse. To add into the misery, very few chemotherapeutic compounds show promise to kill these cells. Several researchers have shown that cancer stem cells are resistant to paclitaxel, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil, and platinum drugs [8, 16]. CSCs are thus an almost unreachable population in tumours for chemotherapy. Therefore any compound, that shows promise towards cancer stem cells, is a highly desirable step towards cancer treatment and should be followed up for further development.”

The researchers identified a variety of ways by which 6-shagoal targets breast cancer:

  • It reduces the expression of CD44/CD24 cancer stem cell surface markers in breast cancer spheroids (3-dimensional cultures of cells modeling stem cell like cancer)
  • It significantly affects the cell cycle, resulting in increased cancer cell death
  • It induces programmed cell death primarily through the induction of autophagy, with apoptosis a secondary inducer
  • It inhibits breast cancer spheroid formation by altering Notch signaling pathway through γ-secretase inhibition.
  • It exhibits cytotoxicity (cell killing properties) against monolayer (1-dimensional cancer model) and spheroid cells (3-dimensional cancer model)

It was in evaluating the last mode of 6-shagoal’s chemotherapeutic activity and comparing it to the activity of the conventional chemotherapeutic agent taxol that the researchers discovered an astounding difference. Whereas taxol exhibited clear cytotoxicity in the one-dimensional (flat) monolayer experimental model, it had virtually no effect on the spheroid model, which is a more “real world” model reflecting the 3-dimensionality of tumors and their stem cell subpopulations. Amazingly, this held true even when the concentration of taxol was increased by four orders of magnitude:

 “In contrast [to 6-shagoal], taxol, even though was highly active in monolayer cells, did not show activity against the spheroids even at 10000 fold higher concentration compared to 6-shogoal.”

This is a highly significant finding, as it affirms a common theme in cancer research that acknowledges the primarily role of cancer stem cells: namely, while conventional techniques like surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are effective at reducing a tumor’s size, sometimes to the point where it is “debulked,” burned,” or “poisoned” out of the body even below the threshold of re-detection, the appearance of “winning the battle” often comes at a steep price, as ultimately the cancer stem cell population regrows the tumors, now with increased vengeance and metastastic invasiveness, resulting in the cancer “winning the war.”

The monolayer model, which does not account for the complex immunity of actual cancer stem-cell based tumors against chemoagents like taxol, represents the old preclinical model of testing cancer treatments. The spheroid model, on the other hand, clearly shows that even 10,000 times higher concentrations of taxol are not capable of beating this ginger component at selectively targeting the root cause of the tumor malignancy.

In their concluding remarks, the authors point out a hugely important distinction between natural anti-cancer agents and conventional ones that have only been introduced in the past half century or so, namely, “Dietary compounds are welcome options for human diseases due to their time-tested acceptability by human bodies.”  

Unlike modern synthetically produced and patented chemicals, ginger, curcumin, green tea, and hundreds of other compounds naturally found in the human diet, have been “time-tested” as acceptable to the human body in the largest and longest running “clinical trials” known: the tens of thousands of years of direct human experience, spanning thousands of different cultures from around the world, that constitute human prehistory. These experientially-based “trials” are validated not by RCTs, or a peer-reviewed publication process, but by the fact that we all made it through this incalculably vast span of time to be alive here today. Consider also that if our ancestors made the wrong dietary choice by simply mistaking an edible berry for a poisonous one, the consequences could be deadly. This places even greater emphasis on how the “time testing” of dietary compounds was not an academic but a life-death affair, and by implication, how the information contained within various cultural traditions as “recipes” passed down from generation to generation are “epigenetic inheritance systems” no less important to our health and optimal gene expression as the DNA in our own bodies.

Ultimately, this new study adds to a growing body of research indicating that cancer stem cell targeting approaches using natural substances present in the human diet for thousands of years are far superior than chemotherapy and radiation, both of which actually increase the relative populations of cancer stem cells versus non-tumorigenic ones.

Lets face it, Chemo does NOT work. According to a 2004 report by Morgan, Ward, and Barton: “The contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adult malignancies. … survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.”Jun 16, 2014

Consider a alkaline lifestyle and dietary change to treat this lifestyle and dietary dis-ease. Try an alkaline whole foods plant based lifestyle approach and diet to heal the core (the small and large intestines), rebuild the red blood cells and immune system, open the channels of elimination, and buffer and eliminate the acidic metabolic and dietary waste to prevent the  primary cause of all cancerous conditions.

Is Chemotherapy Given to Cancer Patients Helping or Hurting?

A new published research article in The Journal of the American Medical Association puts Into question the efficacy of chemotherapy and the doctors who prescribe it!

Chemotherapy Use, Performance Status, and Quality of Life at the End of Life

[Holly G. Prigerson, PhD1,2; Yuhua Bao, PhD3; Manish A. Shah, MD4; M. Elizabeth Paulk, MD6; Thomas W. LeBlanc, MD, MA5; Bryan J. Schneider, MD7; Melissa M. Garrido, PhD8,9; M.

While there are many non-published articles pointing out the clear disingenuous agendas of chemotherapy, there are not many mainstream publications which decidedly call it out – until know. The paper was published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in their September, 2015 issue.

The mainstream media is coming unravelled as a JAMA’s publication is making the rounds which calls out chemotherapy as “ineffective” versus late stage or end-stage cancers where patients are nearing death.

Of course, the “late stage” and “nearing death” variables aren’t an open admission to the entire chemotherapy application, but they are rare for publications which often take sides with chemo as the absolute best treatment for cancer in all FOUR stages.

This article states, “Physicians have voiced concerns about the benefits of chemotherapy for patients with cancer nearing death.[1– 5] In 2012, an American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) expert panel identified chemotherapy use among patients for whom there was no evidence of clinical value [6] as the most widespread, wasteful, and unnecessary practice in oncology.

Let’s put this into perspective – having a major medical journal widely viewed as the top of the medical science food chain calls the application of chemotherapy under these specific circumstance as “widespread, wasteful, unnecessary” is incredibly telling. Think of the money which chemotherapy producers make by peddling chemo to people who are clearly at a state of near death. The study finds it is, “widespread, wasteful, unnecessary” and telling everyone that the for profit aspect of the treatment supercedes any real life-goals for helping people live longer or live better.

Specifically, ASCO guidelines recommend against the use of chemotherapy in solid tumor patients who have not benefited from prior treatment and who have an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG)[7]

Prior to this statement, the study has found that people who haven’t responded to chemo were given chemo again even after the chemo did NOT work the first time! So the chemotherapy treatment failed and yet they were put through the treatment again.

Despite the lack of evidence to support the practice, chemotherapy is widely used in cancer patients with poor performance status and progression following an initial course of palliative chemotherapy.[1,4,10,11]

Chemotheroapy has no evidence in working with people at this late or end stage cancerous condition, and yet the oncologist would administer the treatment expecting a different result? This is the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result!

Chemotherapy’s willingness to rake in billions of dollars from Big Pharmaceutical companies at the expense of those who have cancer could not be more egregious than in this case. This study loudly states egregious, contemptible actions yet with no responsibility to those who have so often contributed to the issue.

The Cure for Cancer? That’s an easy question to answer! The Cure for Cancer is Found in its Prevention NOT in its Treatment! – Dr. Robert O. Young

Do you know what rotten apples, grapefruit or bananas look like? If you do then you know what cancer cells look like. Cancer cells are nothing more that healthy cells that are spoiling because of a compromised environment! Look at the picture below and you will see colorized cancerous body cells rotting in their toxic acidic environment.

What compromises the internal environment of a human body that causes body cells to begin spoiling and rotting? The answer is simple! The body’s build-up of acidic metabolic and dietary waste that has not been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, defecation, respiration and perspiration!

Cancer is not a noun but an adjective that describes what is happening to body cells in an acidic environment due to an acidic lifestyle and diet. www.phoreveryoung.com

BERKELEY Professor States: “People do not die of cancer! People die of chemotherapy and in terrible pain!”

 For 25 years, Dr. Hardin B. Jones  was studying cancer patients and came to a horrifying conclusion!

images-39
Cancer Industry is as much as it attempts to deny just that: only an industry! Doctors , pharmaceutical companies , hospitals , and other key stakeholders of the industry profit every time a patient agrees to conventional treatment , which usually involves injecting chemotherapy toxins into the body , blasting the body with ionizing radiation or cutting off parts of the body and in some barbaric cases combination of all three . It is little known that the science is covering or ignoring this, despite the fact that the medical industry claims, chemotherapy just does not work in the fight against cancer .

Dr. Hardin B. Jones, a former professor of medical physics and physiology at the University of California, Berkeley, has studied the life expectancy of cancer patients more than 25 years, when he came to the conclusion that, despite popular belief, chemotherapy does not work.

He testified that most of the cancer patients treated with chemotherapy die a horrible death. Also Dr. Jones warns that patients treated with chemotherapy die much faster and more painful than many other patients who have selected different treatment. After a great research he came to the conclusion that chemotherapy shortens the life and actually kills patients faster, and that is deliberately kept as secret because billions of dollars are in the game that cancer “industry ” turns over in their death networks.

“People who refused chemotherapy treatment live an average of 12 and a half years longer than the people who are receiving chemotherapy,” said Dr. Jones in his study, which was published in the journal of the New York Academy of Sciences. People who accepted chemotherapy die within three years of diagnosis, and many die quickly after a few weeks.”

“Patients with breast cancer who reject conventional therapy live four times longer than those who follow the system. This is something you will not hear in the mass media that will continue to spread the myth that chemotherapy is the best medicine to fight cancer! ”

A separate study published in the Journal of the American Medical Associationin 1979 discovered that many of the most common methods for diagnosing and treating breast cancer, of which nearly all are still used today, did nothing to reduce the rate of breast cancer or to increase the survival of patients with breast cancer. Two other studies, one from Israel published in 1978, and the other from Britain, which was published in The Lancet in 1980, came up with similar findings. “Overall survival of patients with primary breast cancer has not improved in the past 10 years , despite the increased use of multi- dose chemotherapy for treatment of metastasis ,” explains study Lancet , entitled “The failure of chemotherapy in the survival of patients with metastatic breast cancer. ”

“The carefully hidden truth is that many people who “died of cancer“ actually have died from treatment that included chemotherapy or radiation. Chemotherapy works by killing healthy cells in the body before they destroy the cancer that can develop very slow and in some natural ways even stop and restrain.

Most patients who have “died of cancer” actually have died of malnutrition, because cancerous cells take nutrients from the blood and destroy the immune system so the weakened body is liable to many infections against which is no longer able to defend itself.

Modern medicine has at its disposal a panacea, and the truth about cancer is skillfully hidden. This is because the price of a single treatment today costs 300,000-1,000,000$. “The majority of cancer patients die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not remove breast cancer, colon cancer, or lung cancer. This fact has been documented more than ten years, but doctors still stubbornly use chemotherapy for these tumors “(Allen Levin, MD UCSF,” The Healing of Cancer).

A German epidemiologist at the “Mannheim Tumor Clinic” in Heidelberg, Dr. Ulrich Abel, did an extensive research and analysis of every major study and clinical application of chemotherapy ever undertaken in the world. His conclusions should be read by anyone who intends to do a chemotherapy treatment, written in his book “The Doctor in the House” Tim O’Shea (The Doctor Within)

Lets face it, Chemo does NOT work. According to a 2004 report by Morgan, Ward, and Barton: “The contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adult malignancies. … survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.”Jun 16, 2014

Consider a alkaline lifestyle and dietary change to treat this lifestyle and dietary dis-ease. Try an alkaline whole foods plant based lifestyle approach and diet to heal the core (the small and large intestines), rebuild the red blood cells and immune system, open the channels of elimination, and buffer and eliminate the acidic metabolic and dietary waste to prevent the  primary cause of all cancerous conditions.  www.phoreveryoung.com
