Don't be scared into Chemotherapy

I have first-hand experience with the health care system. For the past 9 wks, I have been researching and meeting with conventional oncologists, and it is my opinion that cancer is a multi-billion $ business. Period. Chemotherapy is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated upon the American public, and we are all paying for it. The pharmaceutical companies are the big winners. Americans are being led to slaughter like sheep; it is not cancer that kills, it is the chemo that kills. If this were exposed for the fraud that it is, many businesses would lose a lot of money, so the fraud must continue. Please note the following: 1) The statistics are skewed: people who decline chemo treatment are NOT included in the stats. There is NO control group. I know 5 people anecdotally who declined treatment and who are healthy; they are not followed in a longitudinal study. The statistics are based solely upon people who ACCEPT treatment. I know 15 people who had chemo and are now dead. 2) Chemo is effective only on 3 different cancers (testicular, lymphomas, childhood leukemias), yet it is presented as treatment for ALL cancers, even though it is known to be ineffective. 3) Chemo can cause other cancers to occur. 4) Chemo can make cancer cells resistant to all chemo treatments; cancer cells fight to survive, adapt, mutate, and then they divide even faster in order to survive. 5) The basic premise of chemo needs to be questioned: the shotgun approach with collateral damage to organs and immune system is NOT acceptable. 6) Doctors routinely use scare tactics about length of life to induce people to agree to accept toxic chemo when there is no proof that the treatment will benefit the individual patient. 7) There are other wellness plans that would benefit people more than chemo, but these plans are blocked by the FDA, the AMA, and Big Pharma. 8) It is more beneficial to strengthen the immune system than to weaken it. Chemo weakens it. 9) Doctors are legally required to offer chemo as the "standard of care" and if the patient declines, it is documented as a CYA for the Doc. This is the crux of the health care problem. This is where the money goes. And insurance companies cover only the conventional therapies, because everyone has been brainwashed into believing in the fraud. Until you actually question the basic premise of chemo, it is the knee-jerk reaction to cancer. The unnecessary deaths of 600,000 Americans every year must be stopped.
During my recovery time from surgery, I have been doing a lot of research on treatment options, and it is really quite unbelievable what a fraud it is. One of the best sites for an overall view is cancertutor.com. I am also getting several opinions on treatment options, and did meet w/ an honest oncologist who responded to all our questions, and in effect said that there are no studies which would indicate that chemo would benefit me, that chemo can cause other cancers, that chemo could result in any cancer cells mutating and becoming resistant to all chemo drugs, and that if I declined treatment he would not see me again. It is important to emphasize that the stats do not include a control group. People who decline treatment are not included in the stats; there are no longitudinal studies done to track people who decline conventional treatment. So when the medical profession presents "statistics" that are provided by the pharmaceutical companies to attempt to scare you into treatment which is beneficial only to their "bottom line", know that these statistics are skewed and therefore meaningless.
This has really been a revelation as to the medical profession being driven by the pharmaceutical industry. The American public has been brainwashed.
Just say no to chemo.

  1. This is worthy of investigation and forwarding to the friends with cancer and having to make life changing decisions. Thank you Snoopdig for bucking the system and standing up. We need the truth to come out and others to share their experience. Most importantly we need doctors with the courage to do and say the right thing like the one doctor you visited.

  2. I wish my family and I had known all about chemotherapy. I was treated with it as a precaution in case there was some trace of cancer left after a bump on my leg was removed...I died from the chemotherapy 1 week later. The Dr. had me go 4 days in a row. I was only 4' 11" and weighed only 125lbs.

  3. When you say that you "died" what do you actually mean?

  4. This is V. Annie Anderson's daughter. I made a face book page in her name to make people aware of the dangers of some doctors over-treating with chemotherapy. She died May 15 2010 after 4 days in a row of chemotherapy for a trace of cancer in a bump on her leg. She was supposed to have radiation only, but the doctor talked her into chemo and prescribed too much.

  5. I saw your Mom's facebook page and I am so sorry for your loss. It is up to us to do what we can to get people to realize how very dangerous chemotherapy is. This should not have happened to her. Can you work with the Mountain News to get the message out? I wish you all the best.

    This is but the tip of the iceberg!

    Consider: the breast cancer death rate per 100,000 US women is essentially the same today as it was in 1970. The treatment then was some type of mastectomy and adjunctive radiotherapy (hopefully 5000 Rads as opposed today' more dangerous 6500 Rads).

    Surgeons knew back then that adjunctive chemotherapy did not appreciably improve the 5 and 10 year survival rates and so no adjunctive chemotherapy was given back then.

    Today, we have genetic testing, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, a plethora of adjunctive chemotherapeutic agents and a host of oncologists who can cite statistics that indicate that the new chemotherapy that they have just been licensed to use....why this new chemotherapeutic agent offers real hope. Emphasis in the words fear and hope!

    Go back and look at chemotherapy in Cecil and Loeb's textbook of Internal Medicine circa 1970 and you will find....surprise....surprise....the cancers that were being cured by chemotherapy back then, are the same ones that being cured today. Except for Lance Armstrong's testicular carcinoma and perhaps the rare Burkitt's Lymphoma
    The Hodgkins Disease, some lymphomas, childhood luekemias are the same cancers that were being cured back in the seventies and about in the same proportions . But not the breast, lung, prostate and pancreatic cancers.

    Read my lips! The adjunctive chemotherapy that oncologists are pushing off onto an incredibly naïve American public, do not work! Do not produce cancer cures! Play on patient fears. And simply feed patients' false hope. Prolong their misery. And wreck and bankrupt their families!

    Wakeup America! This is but the tip of the iceberg! Many of you are being scammed by or are about to be scammed by your local oncologist!

  7. I don't know where to begin but I couldn't agree more with everything you have written. There is a brain tumor in my brain that apparently is said to be a grade 3 malignant tumor that is only cured by radiation or it would've grown rapidly in a couple months! Here I am 3 years later and it has not grown, it has no shrunk either. Undergoing the recommended biopsy to find out what type of tumor has been my biggest regret. I have spent the past 3 years recovering from and having side effects from the biopsy. Thank god I haven't added chemo or radiation side effects to the mix. Anyways I am in the beginning phases of creating a project. (A documentary of sorts) following my stories as well as the stories of others to help continue to shift our health system.

    Walking around with a tumor in my brain and only being able to to have doctors recommend chemo and radiation, and that is the only thing my insurance will cover... IS BULLSHIT! So here I am empty in pockets not being able to afford to pay for the healing I would like which is considered too alternative, and quakery in this country. This needs to stop. Id like to compare our country with other countries as well as share my story and what I have been going through the past 3 years. Any advice or direction you may have is much appreciated, or where you get a lot of your information from and how to use that in the film. Look forward to hearing from you or anyone reading this who has a story to share or any ideas or connections.
