Top cancer treatment and prevention stories of 2014

Albeit a little late, here are the top stories and trends in cancer for 2014. A number of them don’t just relate to cancer – they concern the very essence of your good health.We have got some really exciting developments coming in 2015. Watch out for them!Chris (leaves background)

1. Developing cancer is just ‘bad luck’?

What rubbish is this?? It implies you can do little about getting the disease, nor about preventing it returning after being treated. However, as you will read, the mass media over-claimed a poor piece of research which left out two of the biggest cancers.

2. Epigenetics – the rapidly growing science that shows cancer is reversible

You are not doomed. The Science of Epigenetics has shown that rarely are there mutations in your core DNA, and the changes around your DNA (mistakenly called ‘mutations’ by sloppy scientists) are REVERSIBLE.Right now Big Pharma is trying to develop drugs to reverse the blockages around your DNA. But you don’t have to wait – about 60 Natural Bioactive compounds are proven to have epigenetic benefits. You just have to consume enough of them! But then, this is all in my book, the Rainbow Diet and has been for seven years or more!!

3. Sugar doesn’t just feed cancer – it causes it

We have been telling you that common sugar (and especially High Fructose Corn Syrup) feeds a cancer cell, so avoid at all costs. Yet there are still some people who are in denial. They can’t be reading the research. For example, in January 2014, research showed sugar can actually cause cancer.The solution is to look for a non-added sugar diet – I have been banging on about the French Paradox for years – and colourful vegetables, a low added sugar and high fat diet is the basis for the Rainbow Diet. If you want something stricter – then you can always look at the Ketogenic Diet.

4. Why you should think seriously about Hyperbaric Oxygen

We have been telling people about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for three years, but this year it came of age. Almost all who have used it, praise the effects. What are these? Well apart from a general improvement in well-being and lowered fatigue, HBOT reduces side-effects of radiotherapy and improves effectiveness of both chemo- and radiotherapy. In a 2012 overview of all studies since 2006, two American scientists showed there was even research linking it with killing cancer cells.The MS Society has HBOT centres across the UK and treatment (1 hour, two to three times a week) costs from 10 to 15 pounds per session.

5 Fasting for 3 to 5 days boosts your immune system

New research shows that fasting for three days can boost the immune system – we know it can improve chemotherapy results and cut side-effects – after all, we have been telling you about the benefits of Calorie Restriction and Fasting when you are diagnosed with cancer, for quite a while. Fasting even stops cancer progression.

6. Everything you need to know to help you beat cancer

I just cannot believe how many copies of this book we sell. Especially now we print in different countries. I love the fact that people describe it as their ‘Bible’ and even keep it by their bedside. The book does what it says on the cover – it is all in there, the 4 main causes of cancer that you can cut out today, through to all the complementary therapies and how they might benefit you. It even has checklists on what supplements to take when and it covers many new, emerging therapies. It is only available though, through our wholesalers.

7. Gut bacteria – the root cause of ill health and illness (oh, and colo-rectal cancer)

In January there was research on the links between gut bacteria and colorectal cancer. Then there was research on how taking probiotics lessened your risk of colorectal cancer. Then there was research on how taking gut bacteria can protect you against some radiotherapy side-effects. Gut bacteria – 93 trillion helpers inside your body right now. And a loss of volume and diversity leads to illness. Fact.This book is a 5 hour read – but when you put it down you will know what you need to do to recover your good health.

8. The year medicinal Cannabis started to make its mark?

From Australia to Canada and Spain to the UK, the medical benefits of cannabis seem to be growing in acceptance. 2015 even seems companies producing medicinal cannabis being launched on the stock market.It’s early days, but clearly the active ingredients of certain cannabinoids show promise. Here we provide a link to our article on cannabis, plus a link to Dr Christina Sanchez who seems to be something of an expert in research on cannabinoids and how they kill cancer cells. Then we give you a link to Sharon Kelly’s home made video on how Cannabis killed her stage IV Lung cancer.

9. The year of self empowerment

UK Medical Authorities by and large seem determined to be left behind. They stick to a mantra of ‘Doctor knows best’ and the Holy Trinity of Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy and Surgery. Some even refuse to discuss Complementary therapies with their patients actually saying that they will be ‘struck off’ if they do. Meanwhile the benefits of building an Integrative treatment programme – where patients add complementary treatments to their orthodox programme is just a click away on your computer.Here’s a little selection of pointers to get you going.

10. Fastest growing area of lung cancer linked to oestrogen

Research in 2014 was clear: You don’t need to have been near a cigarette. The cancer that has grown from 12% to 40% of all lung cancer is non-small cell lung cancer – and it is driven by oestrogen.But then so are many cancers – from some breast to prostate, colorectal to brain tumours, ovarian to testicular. And that’s why we wrote a simple book ‘Oestrogen – the killer in our midst. It tells you the simple steps you can take today to start reducing the level of aggressive oestrogen in your body.

11. Is the game finally up for screening mammograms?

By now you know my views. We should have been spending money looking for accurate blood tests not on expensive machines that potentially can do more harm than good. 2014 saw research from Canada that should have finished off screening mammograms for good.

12. Bribery, fraud, causing cancer, spreading metastases; anything else??

In the past, many people have been concerned about the ‘dodgy practices’ employed by certain elements of Big Pharma. In 2014 we have seen criminal convictions for bribery and fraud. A major company that works with the UK Government and Cancer Research has now been convicted of fraud, misleading information and bribing doctors. Twice. With more cases on the way.When it comes to the products, it doesn’t get much better. In 2014 there was a new study that said chemo induced more cancer – this just backed up one from a couple of years back that said it CAUSED cancer. It reminded me of the German Study that said Taxol caused breast cancer to spread.What a sorry state areas of BIG Drug are in at the moment!!

13. Are orthodox prostate treatments doing more harm than good?

If you read the research coming out of America, you would have to answer, ‘yes’. Both the PIVOT Study and a 2014 study on over 65s from UCLA actually show they achieve little and can even make matters worse.So what can you do to stop prostate cancer? From 2014 research it would seem: forget about the vasectomy, and lower your blood triglyceride levels. Read the triglyceride article if you want to know what to do next.

14. So what did 2014 research tell a cancer patient to do?

Research said: Start by taking vitamin D, and light daily exercise. Think about a daily small aspirin. And learn to sleep well (or consider taking melatonin). It could have said take fish oils, curcumin, CLA, resveratrol and more!

15. Environmental toxins and cancer

Xenoestrogens are linked to prostate cancer (again), alcohol-based mouthwash to throat and mouth cancers (again), Glyphospate is polluting water supplies and drugs used to treat IBS, Crohn’s and Colitis are linked to blood and lymph cancers.
