Carcinogens and Toxins

toxins and carcinogensA carcinogen is any substance, radionuclide, or radiation that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer. This may be due to the ability to damage the genome or to the disruption of cellular metabolic processes.

A toxin (from Ancient Greek: τοξικόν toxikon) is a poisonous substance produced within living cells or organisms; synthetic toxicants created by artificial processes are thus excluded. The term was first used by organic chemist Ludwig Brieger (1849–1919).

Toxicity is said to be ‘at a safe level’ in many of the products of our culture but nobody looks at the total of toxins that we ingest as part of our daily life. Individually experts label them as safe, but nobody really knows the cumulative effects they have. Taken as a whole they weaken our immune systems and make our bodies work harder to stay healthy.

The Environmental Protection Agency has determined that 100% of human adipose tissue samples are laced with chlorinated solvents and heavy metals. That’s everyone, not just some of us.

The E.P.A. found styrene, dichiorobenzene (mothballs, household cleaners and deodorizers), xylene, benzene (found in paints and gasoline) and DDT which has been banned since 1972.

The five most toxic trace metals found in our bodies are lead, mercury, aluminium, cadmium and beryllium. These metals are suspected in at least 50% of all deaths in the US and many of the disabling diseases.

Suppression of Alternatives

suppression of alternativesOne factor holding up the development of new approaches to degenerative disease is vested interest. There is little motivation for industry or government to develop new testing methodologies for natural treatments such as bio-electrical, nutritional, herbal or plant based. With the emphasis of multi-national companies on developing drugs, there is little profit to be had from cures that are natural in origin or reasonably simple or accessible, because they cannot be patented and little profit can be made from something you can grow on your windowsill or in your garden.

Commercial companies involved in finding treatments for cancer and other diseases have a vested interest in never finding a cure that doesn’t involve expensive drugs or complex procedures they can monopolise. They have a vested interest in your disease.

For example, one early experimenter in the field of cancer and energy was called Royal Rife. He designed a high-resolution microscope capable of magnifying viruses, bacteria and cells up to 30,000 times. He was interested in how specific frequencies of electromagnetic energy influenced specific bacteria. He worked out the ‘Mortal Oscillation Rate’ (M.O.R.) of several types of bacteria. When he zapped them with the right vibratory resonance, they apparently died on the spot.

Rife used his microscope to observe the living activities of micro-organisms, (unlike medical research which often uses dead cells or micro-organisms). His theories of cancer causation were, and still are, controversial to orthodox medicine. He gave cancer a viral etiology by attributing its cause to a micro-organism known as ‘B.X.’, which he isolated from cancer tissues. Through further research he discovered the ‘fatal resonance frequency’ of B.X. and experimented on animals with induced tumours.

As long ago as 1934 he used the Rife Beam Ray in an experiment on 16 terminal cancer patients. They were exposed to the resonance for three minutes a day. 3 months later 14 of the 16 patients were pronounced cured by a staff of 5 medical doctors. This research was suppressed by medical authorities. A special laboratory built to study these discoveries burned to the ground. Rife was dragged through the American courts on trumped-up charges.

These days the use of electromagnetic therapies is heavily legislated, even for use on animals. It is almost impossible for individuals to legally experiment with electro-magnetics or the field of radionics in relation to modern disease. There are many such stories of suppression of alternative and natural treatments for cancer. Personal and professional character assassination, sabotage and legal proceedings are common plots.

Ridicule and accusations of ‘quackery’ or ‘charlatan’ are often leveled at anyone who challenges the authority of scientific medical research by promoting unscientific alternatives, even if they do seem to work. Due to this tunnel vision multiple treatments including alternative, complementary, natural or experimental research are too often marginalised by orthodox medicine.

Natural therapies are overlooked by scientific research because they contain too many variables to verify using their research methodology. Some alternative natural therapies, such as Gerson Therapy claim 80% or more success rates against cancer but these are unsubstantiated by mainstream research organisations or medical science.

A lot of research into alternative treatments that address every aspect of the disease takes place in secret. This is because practices that fall outside of standard medical practice and physicians who offer unconventional treatments may be open to the civil charge of malpractice.

Because of the nature of western medicine, research into modern diseases such as cancer is too often left to global interests who primarily seek new drugs. The primary drive to find new drugs is profit. Multinational, even global pharmaceutical industries do not exist to give us health, but to incorporate chemicals into everything possible at the highest price they can get.

The drug companies claim that their unique drugs are better, stronger, more targeted and safer than natural or simple sources. To some extent they are, but with one in four hospital beds in UK taken up by patients suffering from wrongly or over-prescribed drugs, they often have toxic side effects way in excess of the natural form for that drug.

The cancer field is controlled by the drug industry. Relatively few drug companies employ most of the cancer researchers. Drug company executives sit on the boards of major cancer centres and dominate major oncology organisations. Politics are at work in the pharmaceutical industry. Due to the multinational dimension of drug companies, monopolies have formed that control our freedom of choice through legislation.

Scientific testing of new drugs is controlled by the pharmaceutical industry. It can cost $500 million to get Federal Drugs Authority (FDA) approval for a new drug. Natural substances are stripped of all but their primary active ingredient, which often works better as part of a whole natural substance in the original plant. All drugs so far approved for cancer treatment have toxic side effects.

Regional health authorities in UK are going into debt – one of the main reasons is the expense of cancer drugs. There is increasing evidence that pharmaceutical industries may form ‘cartels’ to keep the price of drugs high.

This is a frightening scenario for anyone who becomes ill. But what worries me most is that it is the same chemical companies putting toxins in our food and in our environment, that are creating the treatments that supposedly cure us from the poisoning.

Patient Advocacy

patient advocacyHealth Services have identified that the needs of patients are central in 21st century medicine. ‘Patient advocacy’ is a term that describes this process that recognises the role of the patient in their own cure.

In alternative medicine, self-healing means first making a decision to take conscious control of a situation, maybe a ‘crisis’, and then making a shift in your emotions and vibrational orientation. Moving from a dis-eased state to a healing one, means leaving behind the old ways of thinking and the emotions that produced the need for the disease. If we use orthodox medicine to remove the ‘effects’ of the disease without changing the underlying patterns that caused it, the disease is likely to re-occur or ‘come out somewhere else’.

The ‘World Cancer Research Fund UK Expert Report: Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: a global perspective’, suggests that as many as 100,000 cases of cancer could be prevented in the UK each year through healthy diet and lifestyle choices alone.

But we are creatures of habit and comfort and rarely change ourselves unless we have some incentive. With an established ‘nanny state’ in UK, combined with a lack of common education about health and ‘self-maintenance’, medicalisation is creeping into many aspects of life. Traditionally our doctors are respected and educated people who know more about our bodies than we do. If our body goes wrong it needs ‘medicine’ which is a highly specialised field.

Several factors are combining to make this ‘deference to authority’ concerning our bodies a dangerous choice. In other cultures where spirit and physic are still joined, such as China, people will actively try to increase their understanding of disease and seek out different treatments on different levels.

With chemical manufacturers producing many harmful rather than nutritional foods the onus has to be on us as individuals to make ‘healthy choices’ and read the labels at least. This would seem straightforward until we enter the world of dietary supplements. In the UK there are still many of these available (although legislation is changing this).

These supplements are not allowed to carry any information as to their use on their labels, which makes preventative self-medicating a problem for those who want to take responsibility for their own well being.

Although patient advocacy is an important move towards ‘self-healing’ it can only occur when the patient has real knowledge of the choices that are available.

The Power of Immunity

immunity to diseaseThe diseases of old that so ravished our Western cultures are mostly cured. Western medicine has produced literally world saving vaccines and antibiotics. It has created drugs and surgical techniques that do amazing things. It has virtually eliminated all the serious communicable diseases  such as leprosy, plague, tuberculosis, tetanus, syphilis, rheumatic fever, pneumonia, meningitis, polio, septicaemia. There are very few women dying in childbirth compared to the past.

Western medicine has been, and is, a triumph in the face of these problems that worried us back then the way cancer and heart disease worry us today. Even the big medical problems of the 1930’s and 40’s and before have literally vanished in the First World.

But the age of infectious disease has given way to the age of chronic disorders. The major killers today are heart and vascular disease, chronic degenerative diseases and cancer, largely incurable and increasing in incidence. The fourth biggest killer is now rumoured to be medical treatment itself.

The strategies that worked so well for all but eliminating acute infectious diseases just don’t seem to work for chronic and degenerative conditions. Patients can be at best increasingly ‘patched up’ by orthodox treatments but at spiraling health care costs.

“The prevalence of asthma, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, immune deficiency syndrome, HIV and a host of other debilitating conditions is increasing. Conventional biomedicine – so strikingly successful in the treatment of overwhelming infections, surgical and medical emergencies and congenital defects, has been unable to stem the tide of these conditions”.
James Gordon M.D., Washington, D.C.

In brief, modern medical research is still using the techniques established to cure serious communicable diseases. They aren’t working well on modern degenerative diseases like cancer and heart disease, the two biggest killers in the western world.

All medical drugs are toxic and adding toxicity to an already failing immune system can do little more than hide or block a symptom that is likely to appear elsewhere if not cured. The causes of modern degenerative disease are complex and varied and need treating with similar scope at an holistic level, that is, tuned to the individual. There are vested interests at work in the medical treatment of disease – the big companies want expensive pills or treatments that will create profits for them – so many simple remedies, often cheap or freely available, go unresearched.
