NOTE: The following was originally offered as a two-part presentation by the author dealing with both the “losing” and what he believed to be the “winning” side of the issue. We present both sides of the war in a single posting for your education and consideration. ~ Ed.
Part I: Losing the War on Cancer
In 1971, President Richard Nixon announced the War on Cancer and promised a cure by the 1977 bicentennial. In 2009 death rates from cancer are significantly increased and…..no cure is forthcoming! The failure of chemotherapy to control cancer has become apparent even to the oncology establishment. Scientific American featured a recent cover story entitled: “The War on Cancer — it’s Being Lost.” In it, eminent epidemiologist John C. Bailar III, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McGill University cited the relentless increase in cancer deaths in the face of growing use of toxic chemotherapy. He concluded that scientists must look in new directions if they are ever to make progress against this unremitting killer.
Cancer incidences have grown from 1 in 500 to nearly 1 in 2 today!
Chives are far more than the little green bits on your baked potato—they have numerous health benefits that make them a worthy addition to a variety of dishes. Add to that the fact that they are easy to grow and maintain, and it’s obvious that chives deserve a place at your table. Continue reading

Scientists have been doing research on a coffee-cancer link for a very long time. Meta-stidies looking at all the scientific literature up to date have clearly shown that not only there is no association between coffee-drinking and cancer, but there is actually a mild inverse correlation between drinking coffee and some type of cancer. In other words, not only does coffee not give you cancer, but it may mildly protect you from some types of cancer, such as breast and liver cancer. Continue reading
Scientists explain how being overweight makes breast cancer cells more aggressive
Researchers from Helmholtz Zentrum München, Technische Universität München (TUM), and Heidelberg University Hospital carried out a study on how extra weight makes breast cancer cells more aggressive. Using human tissue from breast cancer metastases, the researchers found that the enzyme known as ACC1 (acetyl-CoA-carboxylase 1) — a key component of fatty acid synthesis — is inhibited by high levels of cytokines. They found that obesity causes the release of cytokines into the bloodstream that affect the metabolism of breast cancer cells, which in turn make them more aggressive. Continue reading
Moles are a common sight on a person’s body. These dark-colored clusters of pigmented cells usually appear during childhood, but can fade or disappear with age. While most are harmless, some moles may become deadly over time. Moles can be a risk factor for melanoma, a type of skin cancer. Melanoma may sound scary but it’s actually one of the most treatable cancers and, if caught early, can be taken out in its entirety by simply removing the mole. Dermatologists have listed five warning signs to watch out for; so if you want to know if your mole is cancerous, just remember ABCDE: Continue reading
The story of ‘Victory’…
Being in the unique position to have been trained by Kelley and having worked with him for the last seven years of his life, I felt privileged to have been asked by his son John Kelley to take over the editing and publication of Dr. Kelley’s Self Test for the Different Metabolic Types in 2013. Did we do a rewrite? NO!… But there were editing issues that we felt needed to be corrected, a chart which badly needed updating – in addition to other pertinent information, which Kelley had always published separately in the past – and we chose to merge these publications into one.

About one in every nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. The risk for developing prostate cancer is greatest for men over the age of 65, especially those who African-American. In the Unites States, second to skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men. It’s estimated that about 164,690 new cases of prostate cancer are detected each year, and about 29,430 deaths annually are caused by prostate cancer. This makes it all the more important to pay attention to any prostate cancer symptoms you may notice. Continue reading
NOTE: What you are about to read was posted as a comment in October of 2015 on a blog discussing the issues of curing cancer. There are times when one must reach out to those who have been afflicted and HEAR what they have to say. The alternative is cut, paste and burn… and I will pass on that one. ~ Ed.
This 1965 U.S. postal stamp shows how long we’ve been in the fight
I have read everything that everyone has said. I have to add that it is a pity that people love money so much to watch their fellow human perish every day in diseases that can be easily cured with safe natural medicines. I started researching natural medicine when my 94 years old mother was told to go on dialysis 4 years ago when she was 90 years. I was on dialysis myself and had a kidney transplant once before. I believed so much in the doctors and the hospitals, I did not know that much about natural medicines. I started researching natural medicine because I thought that my mom will not survive dialysis because of her age. I found that there were several options of natural medicine that are not toxic and have no side effect. I decided to try one for her. Six months later we went to the hospital for testing. The doctor said that my mom was healthy and her kidney function was normal. She has been on that natural medicine she drinks with juices every morning for over 4 years. Continue reading
As more and more consumers become aware of the risks of traditional cancer treatments, hospitals in the United States are finally beginning to respond. Some doctors are becoming open to modalities which can complement traditional cancer treatment. U.S.-based clinical trials show cyroablation to be especially effective for early-stage Breast Cancers.
Women who eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables each day can reduce their risk of breast cancer, a study claims.
Scientists found women who stick to the official nutrition guidelines have an 11 per cent lower chance of getting the disease. Continue reading
Oxygen has been used for centuries to promote wound healing and vital health. These days, more and more clinicians, health centers and even hospitals are turning to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to help patients under their care. And new research is pointing to the fact that HBOT may help people heal from cancer as well.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy utilizes a pod-like chamber to immerse an individual in an environment of 100% pure oxygen with an atmospheric pressure of sometimes three times the normal amount.
Senescence is the biological breakdown that happens as all living things age. On a cellular level, it is the loss of the cell’s power to divide and grow. Senescence is one of the natural processes of life. However, within this toxic, stressful world, aging often happens prematurely and with unneeded suffering. It doesn’t have to be this way. Embryonic Plant Extracts (EPEs) are a ground-breaking plant stem cell technology discovered by one of the most visionary health pioneers of our time. They may slow down the progression of age-related senescence and support recovery from dis-eases like Breast Cancer.
You probably know of Coenzyme Q10, or Ubiquinone, as a supplement you can purchase at your local health food store. In reality, however, it is a compound that is produced by your body. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that is known to help for a number of conditions, including heart conditions, migraines and even Parkinson’s. Recent research has also shown that it may also help to halt cancer tumor growth.

There are two major reasons we don’t have a cure for cancer. Why despite a
40 55 (Ed.) year old “war” on the disease survival rates haven’t increased one bit. The governmental meddling of the National Institutes of Health and The National Cancer Institute along with the FDA have made it difficult, if not impossible, for doctors with breakthrough cancer therapies to bring their healing discoveries to those who need them. The orthodox medical establishment is hell-bent on destroying anyone who dares to challenge the status quo on cancer treatment. Continue reading
“The psychology of cancer is as complex as it is misunderstood.”
The mainstream scientific community has finally begun to examine the link between emotions and cancer but their overall opinion is still that emotions don’t matter.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Continue reading
