Cancer Update from John Hopkins Hospital Part I

I received an email from a dear friend and I decided to post it here to increase awareness on the subject matter.

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.
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 tumours.
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.
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 (IP6, Flor-ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs 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.

I'll be having a second post for the rest of this email. Take care everyone.

Chrissy, while I do get some exercise and eat good home cooked food rather than a lot of processed stuff...I'm hoping my positive attitude and love of laughter kill those frigging cancer cells I might have running around in me!!

crissy said...

i'm pretty sure Tom that with your healthy lifestyle and positive outlook in life will really make those cancer cells afraid to stuck in your body.. lol.. keep it up Tom..

aor said...

What about the newly discovered cancer cells of internet addiction and internet mental illness? Does John Hopkins Hospital say something about its diagnosis and relevant remedies? What about the necessary cure or therapy? No offense please...

crissy said...

hello aor! thanks for the comment. As to your inquiry well I guess the internet itself has a lot to offer about the subject matter. Happy reading and have a great day. :)

Cyly said...

No offence to your post. I've got a similiar John Hopkins cancer update via e-mail and it turned out later that John Hopkins clarified that they did not disseminate this information. Tried to retreive the JH mail, think I've deleted it. You may wish to check out their official website.

But the cancer infos are certainly useful regardless if they're from John Hopkins.

Hi Crissy,

Deepak Chopra has said this before, too - that everyone has cancer cells in their body....that doesn't mean that you "have cancer" though, but by knowing this it can help lesson the fear of cancer.

It makes a lot of sense that diet can influence the growth of cancer because disease thrives in an acidic environment, and what creates an acidic environment? Sugar - refined sugar and white flour are found in most processed foods - a good reason to get off of that stuff and eat whole foods! :)

I am a cancer survivor (3rd year of remission) and know the impact incorrect information can have.
It is dangerous to believe everything that comes from the Internet and you should always research the claims via a trusted source - I also looked up this claim on John Hopkins website.
The web address below is a website that is dedicated to dispelling false claims and urban myths and I would recommend that everone should have this as a 'Favourite'.

Thanks Andre for the info. Actually, your the second reader of mine to claim the falsity of this issue. If I have time I will try to make a post to clear the issue. Thank you very much and hope to see you again here. God bless!
