chemotherapy

  1. Starve yourself to beat cancer? No thanks!

    New study pushes starvation as a cancer weapon

    It's bad enough that cancer docs want to poison you with chemotherapy to "save" your life. Now, they want to starve you at the same time.

    And this is what passes for medicine these days? Sounds more like torture to me, but that's exactly what's on tap next as researchers have "discovered" that starvation therapy helps chemo kill cancer cells quicker.

    Studies on mice found that in eight different types of cancer, fasting for two days before and one day after chemo lead to the death of more cancer cells, smaller tumors, and better survival rates.

    That's the part that made headlines anyway. But here's what else they found: Fasting WITHOUT chemo managed to slow the growth of breast cancer, melanoma, glioma, and neuroblastoma, and extended survival in mice with ovarian cancer.

    Supposedly, the fasting plus chemo combo was better than either chemo or fasting alone. But "better" is relative when it comes to chemotherapy.

    This treatment "works" -- if you can even call it that -- by killing both cancer cells and healthy cells at the same time. Docs hope the cancer dies before you do, but it doesn't always work out that way.

    In the current study, for example, not a single mouse given only chemotherapy survived.

    No wonder three-quarters of oncologists say they'd REFUSE chemo if they ever got cancer themselves!

    They might be hypocrites, but they're not nuts -- and they certainly don't have a death wish. They know you don't need chemo to beat cancer -- and you don't need to starve yourself, either. And when their own lives are on the line you can bet they'll turn to the same natural alternatives they pooh-poohed to you.

    One of them is a compound from a tropical fruit you already know (and probably love). Oncologists know it, too, because it's been used alongside chemo for years.

    But now, researchers are learning that even when used on its own, this natural wonder can leave chemo in the dust.

  2. Dangerous new mammograms

    3-D mammograms present new risks for women

    There's a new weapon aimed at your boobs, ladies -- a powerful new 3-D mammogram that emits twice the radiation of the traditional screening.

    If you didn't have cancer before your exam, you might get it afterwards!

    The newly approved machine is called the Selenia Dimensions System, and studies show it increases "accuracy" by 7 percent – but as I've told you before, docs don't need more help spotting tumors.

    If the "pink ribbon" campaigns have taught us anything, it's that spotting tumors doesn't save lives -- it just puts millions of women through unnecessary life-altering treatments such as poisonous drugs, toxic chemo, and disfiguring breast-chopping surgeries. (Read more here.)

    The new machine won't change that -- it'll make it worse, because increased "accuracy" is just code for increased paychecks, as doctors spot even more harmless tumors to perform unnecessary treatments on.

    Some of the risks of these treatments can haunt women for the rest of their lives -- and not just the obvious one, like surgically butchered breasts. One new study finds that women who survive breast cancer treatments could suffer hip fractures at earlier-than-ever ages.

    Researchers made the connection when they found six unusual fracture cases in women in their early 50s – practically kids by today's standards – and all of them just so happened to be breast cancer survivors. One of the women already had osteoporosis, while the other five had osteopenia, which is a thinning of the bone that isn't quite osteoporosis.

    The researchers wrote in Clinical Cancer Research that they believe chemotherapy and common cancer drugs can cause or accelerate bone thinning and weakening -- and say women who've undergone these treatments should have regular bone density tests.

    But I've got a better idea: Just skip the mammograms.

    Don't waste your time choosing 3-D or 2-D -- only "No-D" will ensure that you don't fall victim to an unnecessary treatment that could ruin your life now... and shatter your bones later.

  3. Cancer meds approved too soon

    A new study looks at 12 recently approved drugs that were supposed to be safer choices for cancer than chemotherapy, and finds that at least five of them were given significant new "black box" warnings during their first four years on the market.
  4. A treatment worse than the disease

    A new study found that cancer cells can use a stress-related protein to survive and even repair themselves despite being poisoned by radiation.

  6. Oncologists speak out against antioxidants

    Oncologists are saying there's chance that antioxidant supplements could be lowering the effectiveness of cancer treatments like radiation treatment and chemotherapy.

  8. Carcino-genocide on trial

    Every once in a while, the court system surprises me. Normally, it's as predictable in its misguided fool-headedness as night following daytime. But just as occasional eclipses upset the predictable balance of night and day, so too does the occasional lapse of modern jurisprudence result in the odd correct decision being handed down in our courts…
