Billboard reveals how the cancer industry really sees you

1 Comment 08 August 2014

So a few months ago I saw a cancer clinic billboard that was so ridiculous and offensive that I had to pull over, climb a bridge, and fire some rockets at it.

How the American Cancer Society spins survival rates

46 Comments 30 June 2014

In their latest report, The American Cancer Society says "More Americans than ever are surviving cancer." But are we? Here's an inside look at how the ACS deliberately spins the data to make the cancer industry look good. It blew my mind when I connected the dots.

This cartoon brilliantly explains the truth about cancer research

43 Comments 25 September 2013

This comic strip perfectly illustrates the fact that despite the industry propaganda claiming "We're one step closer to the cure", many cancer researchers freely admit that there will never be a pharmaceutical cure for cancer. They aren't even close. But they're getting paid to keep looking for one, so they keep looking. Click the post to read the whole thing.

Study: 1/3 of chemo is used off-label without FDA approval

16 Comments 22 February 2013

When a chemotherapy drug is approved for cancer treatment by the FDA, it is approved to treat a specific type of cancer. And some drugs are FDA approved for use on multiple types of cancer. That's fairly easy to understand. But here's the bombshell... Researchers have discovered that about one-third of chemotherapies are used to treat cancers that the FDA never approved them to treat...

Cancer studies often downplay chemo side effects:
Researchers spin their results

12 Comments 11 January 2013

The results of breast cancer drug trials are routinely ‘spun’ to make the treatments appear more beneficial than they actually are, doctors claim today. In two-thirds of the studies scrutinized, toxicity and serious side effects from chemotherapy, radiation or surgery were not even listed in many paper's abstract summaries, which is usually the only part that practicing doctors read.

Study: Are cancer patients’ hopes for chemo too high?

28 Comments 29 October 2012

(Reuters) At least two thirds of people with advanced cancer believed the chemotherapy they were receiving might cure them, even though the treatment was only being given to buy some time or make them comfortable, according to a U.S. survey. Researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that 69 percent of patients who were terminally ill with lung cancer, and 81 percent with fatal colorectal cancer, did not understand that their chemotherapy was not at all likely to eliminate their tumors. "Their expectations are way out of line with reality," said lead researcher Deborah Schrag of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institution in Boston, speaking to Reuters Health...

2012 Study Shows How Chemotherapy Backfires
And Boosts Cancer Growth

24 Comments 08 August 2012

Chemotherapy can cause damage to healthy cells which triggers them to secrete a protein that sustains tumour growth and resistance to further treatment, from a study published in Nature Medicine, August 2012. Researchers in the United States made the "completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body when they are easy to kill in the lab.

Cut Poison Burn

4 Comments 24 September 2011

If you have a child diagnosed with cancer the government can force you to subject your child to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. And if you don't comply, Child Protective Services can take your child away. Hard to believe, but it's true. Cut Poison Burn is a very powerful documentary about the Cancer Industry and the Navarro family's fight with the government to get the cancer treatment of their choice for their little boy. I watched an advance screening of this film and met the producer at the Cancer Control Convention in LA, Labor Day weekend 2011. Every American should watch this film.

Study: Chemo is only 2.1% effective toward 5 year survival

38 Comments 06 August 2011

I received an email yesterday that I decided to answer on the blog. Here it is: "My wife found your blog and I find it very inspirational and resourceful. I've been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer just like yours, but unlike your tumor, mine is located in the lower part of the rectal area. I have visited the oncologists and surgeons, they said the best way is to go through Chemo and Radiation in order to shrink the tumor size small enough to remove it during surgery. I will begin my treatment next week, the Chemo I'll be taking is the pill that I'll have to consume twice a day for 6 weeks with radiation. The doctors said I will be required to go through another chemo therapy after surgery, which would be different chemo treatment (through IV). That's where my wife feel most uncomfortable and began researching different options such as alternative therapy. And she found your blog with some insightful information. I changed my diet to raw organic vegetables the day I was informed that I had cancer. It was a life changing moment and left me a little confused what's on the horizon for me. Instead I began to eat more raw organic food and exercise than I have done before (I have been eating organic food and exercising moderately for years). While I have read through some of your blogs and stories, I know you mentioned that you had surgery to remove part of the large intestine and forego chemo and radiation with alternative therapy. I am still confused about the part when you had surgery...Did you have any treatment before your surgery? I understand your blog and stories mostly mention after surgery treatment but maybe I overlooked somewhere that says anything about before surgery? I am curious to know because my age is slightly older than your age right now and I have two young daughters, too. I just do hope that everything posted on your website is true. I am not doubting anything but I do praise your recovery and living cancer free. That's my goal too." Regards, Tris.

Q&A: Breast Cancer at 32, What to do?

71 Comments 28 January 2011

Hi Chris, I stumbled across your website when I was looking for alternatives to Chemotherapy. I believe what you have done is very courageous and inspiring. I am 32 and have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, no family history, generally healthy - so totally shocking. I have had 2 lots of surgery and the tumour was removed and my lymph nodes were clear. I am due to start Chemotherapy on Tuesday and I am scared. Since my diagnoses, I have changed my diet completely, pretty much vegan now and feel the healthiest I have felt in a long time. I have researched into healing myself with food and alternative therapies and it just makes sense to me, but there is also something in me that is saying I need to do the mainstream treatment as well, but the closer I get to it the crazier it seems, why would I want to go and get pumped full of toxic chemicals that will destroy my immune system when I feel so healthy and in tune with my body? I have already been given Zoladex (meant to suppress ovaries - in the hope to remain fertile) and already I notice the changes in my body, not sleeping, spaced out and off my food. I just can't imagine putting my body through this for 5 months with ongoing treatment for another 5 years.. I wish I had the courage you had. What do you think of doing the mainstream treatment alongside a plant based diet and alternate therapies?? Or is it counteractive? I am confused!! The hospital system here (Hervey Bay, Australia) just seem to want to through every treatment at me, Chemotherapy, Radiation, Herceptin for a year and hormone treatment for a following 5 years - they're reasoning for this is because of my age and that the tumor was grade 3 & triple positive - but the cancer could potentially all be gone already?? And when I ask what is the cause of my cancer, they say "its just one of those things" Isn't that ridiculous. I would appreciated any comments you have, you can be as blunt as you like. Maybe that's what I need. Thanks for taking the time to read my mail, and thanks for sharing your story. Kellee

Freakonomics vs. Cancer Treatment.
And the winner is…

5 Comments 16 September 2010

Economist Steven Levitt and writer Stephen Dubner are two awesome dudes who teamed up to write two of my favorite books in the last few years. They use research and statistical analysis to solve some of the most complex riddles of modern life. Needless to say, I was thrilled to discover that they spent some time studying the cancer treatment industry. The question they address in SuperFreakonomics is this: "Why is chemotherapy prescribed so often if it's so ineffective?"

THE BUSINE$$ OF CHEMO

7 Comments 15 August 2010

In January of 2004, one month after my surgery, my wife Micah and I went to the cancer clinic for the first time. It didn't go so well. I had already decided against chemotherapy after researching successful alternative therapies. To my dismay, my decision was not well received by my wife, family and friends. After many heartfelt and well-meaning "interventions", I reluctantly agreed to go meet with an oncologist to hear what he had to say.
