There has been a lot of coverage about cancer and its ravages on the human body. Listening to various experts, one is left wondering why a cure for this disease is so elusive. Some contend that cancer therapy is big business, and there are huge pharmaceutical companies who would do anything to block a cure.
But first, let’s look at a few disturbing facts about cancer:
- 1,735,350 new cancer cases were diagnosed in the US in 2018. Of this, 609,640 will die.
- Globally, cancer killed 9.6 million people in 2018, making it the second leading cause of mortality in the world. To add perspective, one out of six deaths in the world is caused by cancer.
I think these statistics are depressing enough, although others will equally shock you. For instance, smokers have a higher chance of dying from cancer. 22% of all cancer deaths are attributed to tobacco use. Other risk factors include:
- lack of physical exercise
- high body mass index
- alcohol use
- low intake of fruits and vegetables
Together with tobacco, the above risk factors combined puts you at a 33% risk of contracting cancer.
Although cancer is a disease like any other, the number of lives it’s claiming every year puts it up there with other global pandemics. What is more depressing is the fact that it has so far no known cure, except chemo, a brutal cancer treatment therapy that few survive.
Hope in the Horizon?
If reports from an Israeli company are anything to go by, there is hope for a cure… although it is hard to substantiate some of the claims out there concerning how to prevent or cure cancer. Let’s look at a few promising developments in cancer treatment that are doing the rounds on social media.
Revolutionary Minimally-invasive Technology that Freezes and Kills Cancerous Tumours
According to reports from i24 TV, an Israeli company has come up with a minimally-invasive technology that can freeze cancerous tumours. The procedure works by inserting a needle through the skin to reach the tumour. Next, it injects a temperature of -274 degrees F into the cancerous tumour, freezing and reducing it to a dead cell. Once frozen, the tumour becomes inactive. The body’s healing mechanism then kicks in to eliminate the dead cell. This happens in a matter of days or weeks. However, the smaller the tumour, the faster the treatment (sometimes you are good to go in as few as 15 minutes).
Keep Your Body Alkaline
I came across a quote attributed to Dr. Otto Warburg, 1931 Nobel Prize winner for cancer discovery. He says that “No disease, including cancer, can exist in an alkaline environment.” There are several ways you can alkalize your body:
- Eat less meat
- Snack on almonds and berries
- Eat plenty of greens
- Drink lemon in the morning
- Stop taking sugars
- Eat more sprouts and vegetables
- Stop eating processed foods
- Exercise regularly
- Smile, laugh and just enjoy life
Eat Anything in Moderation, but Keep off Soya
A Kenyan politician, Beth Mugo, who survived cancer, says that her world ‘renown’ doctor told her ‘you can eat anything, but in moderation; except soya.’ While I don’t understand why that doctor singled soya as one food type to avoid, I somewhat agree with him. The root cause of most diseases is eating or drinking too much of anything. Nothing is too good to be taken in excess. In fact, whoever said too much of anything is poisonous knew what he or she was talking about. Of course, poison, even in small doses, is dangerous.
Officially, cancer has no effective cure. But could it be there is already one in our midst that pharmaceutical companies don’t want us to know about?
If claims by an Israeli company hold any water, why hasn’t such an effective treatment been scaled to every hospital in the world?
In the meantime, the most popular cancer therapy, chemo, is under scrutiny by various researchers who contend that it actually aids cancer spread.
