The AMA Has Lost the War on Cancer
Throughout the 1980s, we were spending less than $50 billion per year on cancer. By 2009 the total spent on cancer care, treatment and research exceeded $305 billion per year, according to the British Medical Journal, 28 August 2009. There are now more than 569,000 cancer deaths per year in the U.S., yet all this money has not improved the overall chances of survival from cancer during the past 25 years even slightly.
The best five year survival statistics have been produced using therapies based on the hypothesis that cancer is a systemic disease, and tumours are only local symptoms. Therefore the cancer patient should be treated using a therapy designed to restore the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. After undergoing such a therapy “terminal” cancer patients showed a 16.6% five year survival compared with less than 5% expected with conventional therapies and a 15% fifteen year survival compared with less than 1%. With pre-terminal patients there was an 85% five year survival compared with about 50% [Issels J. Immunotherapy in Progressive Metastatic Cancer – A Fifteen Year Follow-up. Clinical Trials Journal August 1970: 357-365.]
Cancer Cures Kept from Public View
There have been a number of cancer cures discovered in the past 100 years, but none of them have been allowed into the mainstream health care system. Why? Quite simply, because there is no “profit” for Big Pharma in a cure for cancer but there are huge profits in the treatment of cancer.
The problem of a cancer cures lies in the politics of money. You see, in order for a drug to be approved by the FDA, the manufacturer must do years of clinical trials, which may cost anywhere between 100 – 300 million dollars. The end result the manufacturer hopes for is called a patent or legal ownership of the drug. The problem with cheap natural remedies is that they cannot patent something that occurs naturally. As a result, there are no drug companies willing the spend that kind of money for testing a product they cannot own and they will do everything they can both legally and politically to prevent natural products from ever reaching the market.
So, with the Rockefeller/Carnegie controlled FDA as the final authority on what remedies can be considered a cure, we have a “catch-22”. No product can make a health claim as being effective unless first approved by the FDA. It doesn’t matter whether the claim is true or false, what matters is whether it is regulated by a government entity owned by multinational corporations. Before a remedy can claim a curative result, it must undergo extensive clinical trials which will only be performed if there is a profit to be made. In other words, it must be “proved” to work by the standards of this government/big pharma crony cartel. If the clinical trials prove the effectiveness of a remedy, then it must therefore be regulated by the FDA and only prescribed by AMA licensed doctors and dispensed by licenced pharmacies. As a result, no cure can be claimed and will ever reach the marketplace unless first approved by the alopathic big pharma controlled AMA and FDA.
The Gerson Therapy
Max Gerson was a German physician who developed the Gerson Therapy, an alternative dietary therapy, which he claimed could cure cancer and most chronic, degenerative diseases. The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements. Over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” diseases, including: Cancer (including melanoma, breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, lymphoma, pancreatic cancer and many others), Diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis, Auto-immune disorders, and many others.
Essiac or Essiac Tea is a blend of herbs promoted as an alternative treatment for cancer and other illnesses. From the 1920s through the 1970s, essiac was promoted as a cancer treatment by Rene Caisse, a Canadian nurse, who claimed that it had been given to her by a patient and that the recipe derived from an Ontario Ojibwa medicine man. Thousands of people have claimed to have been cured of their cancers using Essiac. The government dismisses these claims saying the doctors had made a mistake in diagnoses and those claiming to have been cured never in fact had cancer, or had received successful medical treatment elsewhere before being treated with the Hoxsey Therapy.
The Hoxsey Therapy uses a mixture of herbs, antiseptic douches and washes, laxative tablets, and nutritional supplements that have been used to cure cancer. It was introduced in the 1920s by Harry Hoxsey, a former coal miner and insurance salesman, and Norman Baker, a radio personality. Hoxsey himself traced the treatment to his great-grandfather, who observed a horse with a tumor on its leg cure itself by grazing upon wild plants growing in the meadow.
The American Medical Association condemned Hoxsey’s “caustic pastes” and tonics as fraudulent. In 1949, Hoxsey sued the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and its editors for libel and slander. Hoxsey won the case. The U.S. government banned the sale of the Hoxsey herbal treatment in 1960 and Hoxsey was also forced to close all of his U.S. clinics. In 1963, the Bio-Medical Clinic was established in Tijuana, Mexico where they have claimed a success rate of 50–85% with Hoxsey’s Therapy. Like in the case of Essiac, the FDA dismisses these claims saying those claiming to have been cured never in fact had cancer, or had received successful medical treatment elsewhere before being treated with the Hoxsey Therapy.
Numerous “alternative” medical literature disputes the claims of the AMA and FDA of the of the ineffectiveness of the Hoxey Therapy. According to botanist James A. Duke of the United States Department of Agriculture, eight of the nine Hoxsey-tonic herbs have some anti-tumor activity in animal models, five have antioxidant effects, and all nine have antimicrobial activity that may be linked to cancer-fighting effects. Duke’s assessment was that the Hoxsey tonic ingredients showed very significant chemical and biological anticancer activity.

And, What is the AMA Directed Treatment for Cancer?
Traditional cancer treatment options are often referred to as cut, poison and burn (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation). These are the only treatment options allowed by the AMA directed health care system and the only treatments covered by health insurance.
This treatment is performed to remove the cancerous tissues and is often followed by chemotherapy or radiotherapy. No randomized trial has ever been held to demonstrate the efficacy of surgery [Don Benjamin, The Efficacy of Cancer Surgery].
This treatment involves the use of chemical agents or drugs to destroy cancerous cells and forms the core treatment of malignancies. These drugs work by targeting fast-growing cells; the type and combination of drugs depends upon the type of cancer. “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 tumors.” [Allen Levin, MD UCSF The Healing of Cancer] The plain fact is, no legitimate scientific studies or clinical trials independent of the companies selling chemo drugs have ever proven chemotherapy’s effectiveness, except in a small percentage of very rare types of cancer. For solid tumors of adults, the vast majority of cancer, or anything that has metastasized, chemotherapy simply doesn’t work.
This treatment involves the use of high-energy ionizing radiation from varied sources including x-rays, gamma rays, protons and neutrons to shrink tumors and kill cancerous cells. Radiotherapy is not effective in reducing deaths from breast cancer, and other randomised trials carried out to evaluate radiotherapy for other forms of cancer, such as colon cancer have produced the same results. Post-operative radiotherapy (PORT) for lung cancer has been found to increase the mortality from cancer.
