Cancer – it’s not what you think it is.
Like it or not, cancer has become the 2nd leading cause of death in the US. Sources state that, based on 2012-2014 data, about 38.5% (close to two fifths) of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lives. Yet, despite how deadly it has been, we also know that cancer is a relatively recent disease that seemingly didn’t exist (or cause many deaths) 100 years ago. What on earth has happened since then? Why is cancer so widespread? What is cancer exactly? Is there a cancer microbe? Is cancer really terminal? If not, what are the natural solutions?
History of Cancer
Before we embark on the difficult problem of defining cancer, where there are many different and competing theories, let us turn to one thing which is commonly accepted: cancer is essentially a new disease. Yes, it was detected over 2000 years ago, but it was extremely rare. The article Scientists suggest that cancer is purely man-made states:
“Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said: “In industrialised societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare. There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.”
She added: “The important thing about our study is that it gives a historical perspective to this disease. We can make very clear statements on the cancer rates in societies because we have a full overview. We have looked at millennia, not one hundred years, and have masses of data.”
The data includes the first ever histological diagnosis of cancer in an Egyptian mummy by Professor Michael Zimmerman, a visiting Professor at the KNH Centre, who is based at the Villanova University in the US. He diagnosed rectal cancer in an unnamed mummy, an ‘ordinary’ person who had lived in the Dakhleh Oasis during the Ptolemaic period (200-400 CE).
Professor Zimmerman said: “In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases. The virtual absence of malignancies in mummies must be interpreted as indicating their rarity in antiquity, indicating that cancer causing factors are limited to societies affected by modern industrialization”.”
This naturally leads people to blame things like industrialization, the modern environment and the modern diet as cancer causes, although none of these factors clearly explains why millions of people die every year from a variety of malignancies.
What is Cancer? – The Mainstream Definition
Incredibly for this day and age, we still don’t know exactly what cancer is. Although cancer is commonly defined in terms of DNA damage and cellular mutation, these things are the effect of cancer, not the cause or definition of it. The AMA, the CDC, the American Cancer Society and all the other arms of the Big Pharma-Western Medicine conglomerate will mostly tell you that cancer has an unknown etiology (cause). Sometimes they will point out the obvious, that things like tobacco, alcohol, infectious disease like hepatitis, and nuclear radiation will cause cancer, although many spokesmen for these institutions will still deny that things like glyphosate and EMF radiation are carcinogenic. In fact, some people from these institutions used to promote the very things that caused cancer; remember Camel-smoking Western doctors promoting cigarettes as healthy?
Big Pharma-Western Medicine likes to emphasize that cancer has a genetic component. They also use words like “incurable”, “inoperable”, “hopeless” and “terminal.” Notice how these words induce you to feel helpless, victimized and not responsible for your current state of health. If cancer just happens, you’ve just got bad genes or bad luck, right?
The standard definition of cancer is that it’s a large group of diseases characterized by abnormal cell growth (called a tumor or neoplasm) which becomes so out-of-balance that it grows uncontrollably and spreads to other parts of the body. There are 6 hallmarks of cancer:
- Cell growth and division absent the proper signals
- Continuous growth and division even given contrary signals
- Absence of programmed cell death (apoptosis)
- Unlimited and unending cell divisions
- Promotion of blood vessel construction (angiogenesis)
- Invasion of tissue (metastasis)
We All Have Cancer – All the Time
What is highly interesting about cancer is that we all have it – all the time. Your body makes around 50 million cancer cells every day! To put this into perspective, your body contains 30-37 trillion cells, so 50 million is comparatively small. Yet, this goes to show that cancer in and of itself cannot be the major problem mainstream science makes it out to be, since a strong body and healthy immune system overcomes and transforms it daily. Cancer, like any disease, cannot survive in the presence of a strong immune system. The biological terrain must be weakened or deficient in order for cancer to gain a foothold.
What is Cancer? – Alternative Definitions Including the Cancer Microbe
There are theories that hold that cancer is either a fungus or a bacterium. Some people have cured cancer with the strongly alkaline sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), based on the idea that cancer is a fungus that cannot withstand such alkalinity. The Italian doctor Tullio Simoncini has famously cured many patients with intravenous sodium bicarbonate.
It may not be a case of either/or. There is a certain class of bacteria called mycobacteria which spread like fungus (myco means fungus in Greek). What if cancer were caused by a bacterium that acted like a fungus? There have been a handful of brave scientists, doctors and researchers who have had the courage to go against the medical establishment (when the evidence indicated to), risking their jobs and careers to claim that there may be a cancer microbe, and that cancer may be caused by a bacterium. William Russell (1852-1940) was a pathologist in the School of Medicine at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. In 1890 he gave an address to the Pathological Society of London in which he explained that:
“he had found ‘a characteristic organism of cancer’ that he observed microscopically in fuchsine-stained tissue sections from all forms of cancer that he examined.”
He posited the existence of a parasite later called the Russell body. Dr. Virginia Livingston MD was another medical heretic who did further research to confirm the so-called Russell body. In 1970, she named the cancer organism she had detected as progenitor cryptocides (according to her biography progenitor was a pseudonym for “ancestral”; cryptocides is a Greek and Latin word meaning “hidden killer”). Livingston theorized that progenitor had highly variable growth cycles and the ability to adopt a variety of shapes including spindles, rods and cocci. Livingston inspired Dr. Alan Cantwell, and they both wrote books on the topic of the cancer microbe. In this presentation, Cantwell spells out the characteristics of such a germ:
- Intra-cellular and extra-cellular (lives inside and outside the cell)
- Cell wall deficient (CWD)
- By definition, is therefore also pleomorphic (able to exist in many shapes and forms)
- It has a “filterable” virus-like growth stage which can’t be seen in an ordinary light microscope. This suggests a close relationship with viruses and nanobacteria
More on the Mysterious Cancer Microbe
The ICRF (Independent Cancer Research Foundation) led by Webster Kehr is amassing a heap of very important information on the nature of cancer and how to heal it. In this article, Kehr asserts that cancer is most probably the bacterium called Helicobacter Pylori. He claims that the “evidence that H. Pylori causes cancer is very solid” and lists 4 reasons among many:
- It is ubiquitous in the stomach and common in the bloodstream (all humans have some cancer cells at all times),
- It is known to be a pleomorphic microbe,
- The most effective herb at killing H. Pylori, turmeric, is also the same herb that is most effective at treating cancer,
- More than one alternative cancer researcher has come to the same conclusion independently.
The 2nd point that Kehr makes – that the cancer microbe is pleomorphic – was not only known by Livingston and Cantwell. Kehr refers to the research of Gaston Naessens, who went further down the rabbit hole and discovered that the cancer microbe has at least 16 distinct shapes and sizes:

What makes the cancer microbe difficult to detect and eradicate is that it can literally be smaller than a virus or as big as a red blood cell. In the case of the former, it can get inside the cell nucleus and damage the cell DNA. However, according to Kehr, we do know one thing which is very important: the cancer microbe changes its shape and size based on the acidity or alkalinity of the inside of the cell. As the alkalinity increases, the size of the cancer microbe decreases. As the alkalinity decreases (and the acidity increases), the size of the cancer increases. This is not surprising, given the strong relationship between cellular health and alkalinity.
What Causes Cancer?
There are many levels on which to address this question. On one level, you can zero in on specific physical and environmental causes – tobacco, alcohol, infectious disease like hepatitis, glyphosate and heavy metal contamination. On another level, you can look at the role of energetic and non-physical causes such as nuclear radiation, EMF radiation and unresolved and suppressed emotional issues. On yet another level, you can analyze how the immune system was weakened, such that it was no longer able to suppress the development of tumors. On a further level, you can look at the sequence by which a healthy cell gets transformed into a cancerous cell – and it doesn’t just happen magically. It has everything to do with the cell input and output.
Many in the Big Pharma-Western Medicine conglomerate, whether out of ignorance or deliberate concealment, attribute cancer to DNA damage. However, this is confusing effects with causes. Kehr writes:
“Everyone has cancer cells in their body, so why does one person never get diagnosed with cancer and another person is diagnosed with cancer? Cancer is almost always caused by the same multi-step sequence of events.
First, nasty microbes and parasites get inside of the organs and make their homes there. These microbes generally come from meat that was not adequately cooked, but they can come from other sources.
Second, these microbes intercept glucose which was headed for the cells in the organs.
Third, these microbes excrete (as waste products) mycotoxins, which are highly acid and totally worthless to the cells.
Fourth, because the cells (in the organs) don’t get the food they need (because it has been intercepted), and because they are living in a sea of filth (i.e. mycotoxins), the cells in the organ become weak.
Fifth, organs are made exclusively of cells. In other words, if you took all of the cells out of an organ, there would be no organ. Thus, because the cells in the organ(s) are weak, the organ(s) are weak.
Sixth, because one or more major organs are weak the immune system becomes weak. Actually, the microbes weaken the immune system both directly and indirectly.
Seventh, because the immune system is weak it cannot kill enough cancer cells and the cancer cells grow out of control.”
Billions of Dollars … But No Cure
Sadly, Western Medicine neither knows or divulges the big picture of what causes cancer, nor knows how to properly cure it. Even when allopathic medicine “cures” cancer (remission), it has not fixed the root cause, so it is almost certain to return. There are all sorts of charities, fundraisers, pomp and circumstance, with billions of dollars donated to cancer research, but nothing ever seems to eventuate from it. It’s no wonder, when you consider that some of these ventures like the Susan Komen pink ribbon charity actually lead unsuspecting women into regular mammograms that cause the very cancer they are supposed to be detecting or protecting against!
Some of these charities also ally themselves with Big Pharma companies that make products (like vaccines) with provably carcinogenic ingredients and adjuvants like mercury and formaldehyde! It’s more fakery designed to give the gullible public the impression that someone is trying really hard to “find the cure.” Many people have seen through the entire charade, especially as it becomes known that the American Cancer Society has financial ties to Big Pharma companies and radiology equipment manufacturers, and receives funding from the petrochemical industry, the biotech industry (oops, I repeat myself), the cosmetics industry (oops, I repeat myself again) and the junk food industry (oops, I repeat myself a third time). Yes, they are all full of petrochemicals … Western Medicine is Rockefeller Medicine, right?
Meanwhile, what is most probable is that the numerous proven cancer cures are being suppressed under lock and key, just as Dr. Richard Day revealed in 1969 during his sinister presentation.
Toxic Side Effects of Western Medical Cancer Treatments
Western Medicine has 3 main approaches against cancer, all of which have severe side effects: surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Surgery involves cutting out the diseased tissue however it clearly takes a toll on the body; besides, there is no way to stop cancer just by cutting it out, for it will just come back. Radiation itself is carcinogenic. According to cancer survivor Suzanne Somers, another side effect of radiation is that your body cannot make HCl (hydrochloric acid) again for rest of your life! This means you will not be able to digest properly unaided; in the best case scenario, you would have to take HCl tablets before every meal for the rest of your life. Entire volumes of books could be written about the side effects of chemotherapy. Indeed, calling it a “therapy” is rather generous, given that it is a selection of chemical drugs derived from mustard gas that was used in World Wars I and II as a toxic killing agent.
Kehr writes in the above-linked article that “regardless of what the cancer microbe is, it has been known since the 1930s that one of the best ways to cure cancer is to kill the microbes which are inside of the cancer cells. In this way the cancer cells will revert into normal cells.” In part 2, we will turn our attention to the natural solutions, remedies and treatments for cancer (with little to no side effects) – and fortunately there are many such natural cancer cures.
