propolis, bee pollen. There is a book review of Vital Signs of Cancer
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
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
"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.
