Johns Hopkins Cancer 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.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
- 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.
- When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
- When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
- To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
- 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.
- Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Cast le Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.
- No plastic containers in microwave ovens
- No plastic water bottles in freezer
- No plastic wrap in microwave ovens
Dr. Fujimoto said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something other than the plastic container in which they come packaged. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Dr. Fujimoto said not to freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this will release dioxins from the plastic.
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as SaranWrap, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave oven. As the food is "nuked" the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
- 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 honey or molasses, but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is sea salt.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.

The Loonies Are Running The Asylum
Frankly, I have to confess that I was a bit surprised that Harry Reid managed to keep the Senate Democrats in line and unanimously vote not to repeal ObamaCare. I mean, when you realize that last year, he had to bribe and intimidate a number of those bozos to pass the legislation, I actually thought that between the Democrats who are bowing out in 2012 and those who will have to seek re-election with that multi-trillion dollar albatross hanging around their necks, a few liberal rodents might actually jump the sinking ship.
Their loyalty is so bizarre, so totally illogical, that I can only assume that Reid has photos of these oafs pitching woo with farm animals.
Speaking of trillions of dollars, Bob Marcks, in a letter to the Wall Street Journal, clarified the issue for people who are easily confused when numbers go beyond hundreds and thousands. One million seconds, he pointed out, is approximately 11.5 days. One billion seconds, on the other hand, is about 32 years, and one trillion seconds is more than 30,000 years!
Obama has raised the national debt by about four trillion dollars in just two years, and the Democrats think thatís fine and dandy. But they start screaming when the Republicans talk about cutting federal spending by, say, 500 billion dollars by 2020. But if you think of it not in dollars, but in years, itís much easier to get a handle on the enormity of the numbers that promise to bury this country. Using this other measurement, as provided by Mr. Marcks, it would mean that while Obama added 120,000 years just since early 2009, the Democrats have a hissy fit when the GOP suggests reducing that total by a scant 15,000 years over the entire next decade.
On the Homeland Security front, we have Janet Napolitano telling us that our southern border is safer and more secure than itís ever been. Not being one to question a ladyís veracity, Iím willing to believe it certainly looks a lot safer and more secure from her current vantage point, now thatís sheís no longer having to hang out in Arizona.
We also continue to hear the open border crowd insist that illegal aliens will do the work Americans wonít do. It makes you wonder who was picking all those crops before the border stopped being an actual location and turned into a cornucopia made to order for Democrats trolling for votes and employers on the lookout for cheap labor.
With an unemployment rate that is actually hovering around 16% when you factor in those who are no longer seeking jobs or who are underemployed, I suspect there are all kinds of jobs that Americans would do if they paid a fair wage and if illegals didnít already have them.
On top of taking jobs away from American citizens, illegal aliens are also overwhelming our medical facilities, our schools, our culture and our jails. The fact is, no matter how hard-working many of these people might be, by ignoring our sovereignty, they are treating America like a huge piŮata.
One thing you have to say for Obama is that he knows how to reward his friends. For instance, he has already granted well over 700 waivers to those entities seeking relief from the most onerous elements of ObamaCare. Among them are some of those very same unions who fought so hard to make sure the legislation was enacted. Even more contemptible are those senators and congressmen who passed the damn thing in the first place, knowing that their own health plans are separate and inviolable.
If and when the Supreme Court rules, as it should, that ObamaCare is unconstitutional, I wonder how the administration, which condemned the Republicans for devoting a week or so to trying to repeal the law, will justify squandering 18 months trying to shove it down our throats.
I was more than slightly annoyed when I learned that the Justice Department had decided not to prosecute the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, and that Eric Holder apparently told his staff of lawyers that under his watch they would not even consider prosecuting blacks or Hispanics for such crimes. But now Iíve received word that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has warned employers they could be sued if they refuse to hire members of a minority even if they have criminal records!
On top of that, we already have a Supreme Court justice whoís convinced she has superior judgment simply because sheís a Latina.
I always thought that Black History month was offensive in a nation that allegedly prided itself on being colorblind. But now it appears that we have reached a point where only white people are reviled for no other reason than their race.
It was a sorry sight when we saw the President kowtow to every lowlife he encountered on his world tour, but, in the name of political correctness, we find that Caucasians are now expected to kowtow to every imaginable minority group in America, ranging from blacks and Hispanics to gays and Muslims.
It used to be that if we referred to our betters, we were taking about people who, through their decency, wisdom and accomplishments, provided a model to which we could aspire and a yardstick by which we could all measure our own shortcomings. Today it merely refers to anyone whoís not us.

Obamacare's Real Estate Sale Tax - Surprise..!
Do you ever plan to sell your house, condo or other real estate..?
Did you know if you sell your real estate after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?
That's $3,800 for every $100,000 of the final sale price.
Are you wondering when this happen? It's in the health care bill. Just thought you should know.
The REAL ESTATE SALES TAX will go into effect beginning in 2013. (Part of HC Bill)
Starting in the year 2013, as part of the funding for the new health care bill, all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax.
If you sell your $400,000 home after 2012 there will be an additional $15,200 tax.
This bill is set to squeeze the retiring generation who often downsize their homes.
Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill?
Guess what, you aren't alone, there are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either.
As Nancy Pelosi stated "We need to pass the bill to find out what is in the bill.Ē (YouTube)
Does finding out information like this make the recent Mid-Term elections and 2012 Presidential election more important? (Rhetorical Question)
Is the timing of have the Real Estate Sale Tax kick-in beginning January 1, 2013, after the November 2012 election, carefully planned political tactic? (Rhetorical Question)
