There is a book review of Vital Signs of Cancer by Dr Xandria Williams, there is important information regarding the international campaigns being waged around the world - in Canada, USA, UK and EU to protect and defend the right of all of us to use and consume natural health supplements, including vitamins, minerals, herbal medicines and other natural medicines.

There is also a letter entitled Dr Nicholas Gonzalez On Cancer & Health by Helke Ferrie with immense importance and relevance to all of us interested in cancer - its prevention, treatment and its long and nasty political history. The Sources and Further Information are perhaps as awesome as the content of the main body of the letter. I assure you that your time will be well spent reading this exposé, parts extracted here as an entrée:

"...every orthodoxy is cracked by some heretic arising within that system... such as Dr Gonzalez, an immunologist and medical doctor, who received his degrees from Columbia and Cornell universities. His mentor was none other that Dr Robert Good, a world-famous oncologist and the then director of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Dr Good encouraged him to examine the cancer treatment developed by a maverick dentist, Donald Kelley. Having cured himself of pancreatic cancer, just about the deadliest one there is, Kelley developed a protocol based on the earlier work by Dr Max Gerson and the discovery made in the early 1900s by John Beard of Edinburgh University about the central importance of pancreatic enzymes for cancer prevention and treatment...

"Dr Gonzalez systematically studied 10,000 cancer cases from Dr Kelley's files, but the book Gonzalez wrote on this project, One Man Alone, in 1987 was stonewalled by all publishers: it became available finally this year, available on www.amazon.com www.amazon.uk and www.newspringpress.com/oneman.html Kelley was hounded throughout his life by the establishment, imprisoned, and bankrupted...

"At the heart of the battle are two opposing views on cancer. Orthodoxy sees the cancer patient as a battlefield and embarks ... as a search-and destroy mission to purge the body of cancer cells, find a tumour, cut it out, poison it with chemotherapy, or obliterate it with radiation; the result of this approach has been that for the past half century the death rate for cancer has not budged. All wars are extremely lucrative for the weapons industry and very bad for the health of those on the receiving end of that industry's products...

"The opposing view... is that tumours are not the illness, but rather the body's way to sequester waste material; the tumour has a purpose [it is] a sign that the body is too filled with toxins, and these can overwhelm the liver's ability to process them, [then] confronting the body with an enormous load of toxic waste that produces tumours which are like accessory livers , namely additional, desperately and hastily constructed toxic waste dumps...

"For Drs Beard, Gerson, Kelley, Gonzalez and other past and contemporary heretical cancer doctors, the body is not a battlefield, but rather an exquisitely constructed living entity capable of perfect self-repair... This perfectly balanced process of health maintenance can only function properly if our bodies receive healthy (bio-identical) fuel, otherwise cancer may begin. Everything in our bodies comes from one place: our diets, states Dr Gonzalez. Nutrition is key. It's the foundation. It's not the end, it's the beginning. It's the ultimate foundation for good health. If you don't have that, nothing else is going to work... Indeed, so much of what we eat often unknowingly - is outright carcinogenic. Back in the late 19th century Sir William Osler already observed that we dig our graves with our knives and forks.

Best wishes to all of us, thinking of this while we may overindulge during the festive season.
