US Scientists Find That Chemotherapy Boosts Cancer Growth

Chemotherapy can damage healthy cells? Say it isn’t so? You don’t need a degree to figure this one out. Poison kills indiscriminately– always has and always will. While damaging healthy cells, chemotherapy also triggers them to secrete a protein that sustains tumour growth and resistance to further treatment. Researchers in the United States made the “completely unexpected” finding they claimed while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body when they are easy to kill in the lab.

Only through the forces that have carefully conspired to thwart meaningful advances in cancer research and treatment over the past century has chemotherapy succeeded. In what reality do we live in when cut, poison and burn are the only ways acceptable to treat cancer?

No chemotherapy drug has ever actually cured or resolve the underlying causes of cancer. Even what mainstream medicine consideres “successful” chemotherapy treatments are only managing symptoms, usually at the cost of interfering with other precious physiological functions in patients that will cause side effects down the road. There is no such thing as a drug without a side effect.

They tested the effects of a type of chemotherapy on tissue collected from men with prostate cancer, and found “evidence of DNA damage” in healthy cells after treatment, the scientists wrote in Nature Medicine.

Chemotherapy works by inhibiting reproduction of fast-dividing cells such as those found in tumours.

The scientists found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein called WNT16B which boosts cancer cell survival.

“The increase in WNT16B was completely unexpected,” study co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle told AFP.

The protein was taken up by tumour cells neighbouring the damaged cells.

“WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumour cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy,” said Nelson.

In cancer treatment, tumours often respond well initially, followed by rapid regrowth and then resistance to further chemotherapy.

Rates of tumour cell reproduction have been shown to accelerate between treatments.

“Our results indicate that damage responses in benign cells… may directly contribute to enhanced tumour growth kinetics,” wrote the team.

The researchers said they confirmed their findings with breast and ovarian cancer tumours.

Patients with incurable cancers are promised much greater access to the latest drugs which could offer them extra months or years of life, however many doctors have been urged to be more cautious in offering cancer treatment to terminally-ill patients as chemotherapy can often do more harm than good, advice supported by Nelson’s study.

The National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD) found that more than four in ten patients who received chemotherapy towards the end of life suffered potentially fatal effects from the drugs, and treatment was “inappropriate” in nearly a fifth of cases.

More than half of all cancer all patients suffer significant treatment-related toxicity. Treatment can also result in life-threatening infections or patients may simply die of their cancer.

When asked about how to improve a patient’s response and outcome, Nelson replied “”alternatively, it may be possible to use smaller, less toxic doses of therapy.”

The bottom line is that chemotherapy destroys virtually all cells and systems before getting to the actual cancer. This means your central nervous system, organ systems and your immune system (to name just a few) are all compromised even years after the treatment has subsided. Forget about cancer killing you because chemotherapy will do a much better job in the long term.

Chemotherapy causes healthy brain cells to die off long after treatment has ended and may be one of the underlying biological causes of the cognitive side effects — or “chemo brain” — that many cancer patients experience.

Conventional cancer treatment is a massive and expensive fraud–a non-treatment that sickens and kills more people than it ever “cures.” It can never cure anything because it poisons the body which only causes more disease in the future.

The question [of whether or not chemotherapy really extends life, ed.] can probably no longer be answered. In clinical studies the manufacturers always compare their new drugs with older cellular poisons. There are no control groups that are given no treatment at all.

In order to be allowed onto the market, it suffices to achieve a “statistically significant” advantage in one small group of hand- picked test subjects vs. those treated with some already approved cellular poison.

    OMG – I am shocked (being facetious). I worked for oncologists – cancer has been intensely studied now for over 50 years – cause is known; prevention understood; cure protocols established and they have to do with nutrition. BUT there’s no money in nutritional cures, so there’s endless prevarication and fear mongering to keep the cash flow going using tangential treatments. Think this is evil – yeah, medical industry is evil.

    • Anonymous says:

      I don’t think cause is truly known, cause goes much deeper than environment and lifestyle and heredity! I don’t think scientists know much about cancer. The biggest problem is in research. While observing something, it changes. They are looking so closely, that they are getting the results they expect! Research needs to change, an yes, nutritional care and energy healing is a must!!!! N

      • abinico warez says:

        Like I said, they have a pretty good idea of what’s going on – cause and cure. Key has to do with DNA structure and in particular things they call ‘metallic fingers’ – structure is very important – this is how they can identify a cancerous cell using microscopic examination. Their problem is coming up with a treatment that they can patent – medical research is all about the patent – no patent means no investors – the entire system is all about the making of monopoly money from patents. Bottom line is they know that exposure to free radicals can eventually lead to cancer if you do not have enough anti-oxidants in your diet. And gain, there’s the problem – it has to do with diet – no money in it.

      • ChewyBees says:

        The cause cannot be ‘truly’ known as there are myriad causes, as well as multiple factors that must come together for cancer to reach a growth size that it can no longer be taken care of by the body’s own systems. More than likely, every single adult human has had cancer in some stage many times in their life, the body just happened to take care of it using it’s own immune and purification systems. For a cancer to grow, inhibit and then take over a major organ or multiple organs means the underlying causes have been going on for sometime, and the environment the cancer is living in is established as beneficial to cancer and not the body. It is at this point that the causes can be discovered and defined, and then rapid, extreme changes made from unhealthy to healthy. With many cancers, breast cancer and prostate cancer especially, the ‘rush to treatment’ is hardly necessary in most cases (as cancer is still developmental upon discovery), but is recommended by scareware doctors to get the pharma juice mainlining as fast as they can. Otherwise, a cancer patient might opt for something else after doing their own research.

        My opinion on the most common factors that allow cancer to develop: lack of oxygen and clean air in general, a mental and physical environment of unhealthy stress, artificial food and drinks, anything above a low sugar diet (including fruits and grains), impure water containing trace amounts of poisonous chemicals, pharmaceuticals, mercury, lead, chlorine and fluoride to name a few, a lack of exercise, or in some cases, too much exercise. Alcohol and tobacco go without saying, but in moderation outside of the above factors, neither is any more harmful than the rest of the list.

        The above list are all factors that tax the immune system and organs, keeping them from doing the necessary work of guarding against dis-ease and purifying the system. I was always astounded at how much stress is added to the situation as soon as the cancer is discovered. It is this way because the ‘cure’ that big pharma is racing for is billed several hundred large from the insurance companies, and thus is a huge cash cow for corporations that have no feeling, empathy or care for the outcome, only the treatment…

        Energy healing is something I truly believe in, but from my understanding, once the chemo starts, that option is negated.

        Read Bengstrom’s book Energy Cure. It’s an eye opener…

      • Gail says:

        95% of cancer is not genetic (Read Dr. Samuel Epstein’s books). Also, take a look at a book called “The Politics in Healing” by Dan Haley. He was a member of the NY State Legislature. Political harassment, suppression, the AMA (American Medical Association), the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration). Follow the money. AMA receives income from advertising from the pharmaceutical drug companies. Many employees in the FDA have gone to work for the pharmaceutical companies, the sector they were regulating, when they retire from government. Impediments to non-toxic health breakthroughs are seen by this author as the FDA and doctors not free to use effective non-toxic therapies. Read the true stories in this book that illustrate these concerns. Natural approaches used, the results and the attempt to shut it down. Educate yourself to the impact on your welfare.

    The US government has been holding a patent on CDB’s extracted from Cannabis that cure cancer since 1974. The study was published in the Washington Post on Aug. 18, 1974. There have been multiple cures found over the last several decades, all prevented from coming to light.

    Knowing that conventional treatment was the worst possible outcome, but at the time not having specific alternatives, my wife and I did not intervene when my father in law was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

    The chemo he received only diminished his quality of life and accelerated his death– he lived less than two months after diagnosis.

    We have since self-educated ourselves, having disengaged from the mainstream.

    There are some great resources such as Ty Bollinger’s “Cancer: Step Outside of the Box” (as advertised on this site), the Cancer Control Society, not to mention state of the art clinics just across our border in Mexico that actually cure patients, healing their bodies naturally.

    89 cents worth of hydrogen peroxide will fix anything taken different ways ,. Baking soda if you already have it, and if you take two almonds a day you won’t have to spend 89 cents

  10. The only winners with Chemo are the big pharma companies. It makes no sense whatever. Bring on research into using natural drugs such as Marujana and see how really effective they are. Oh no ….. the big pharma companies cannot profit from this so no chance.

    • And now we join reality... says:

      Really?! Sorry, as someone with stage IV metastatic cancer, I can say that’s short-sided thinking. I’m only alive right now because of chemo – not almonds, apricot pits, rainbows or unicorns.

    DON’T WASTE THAT LEMON or LIME PEEL!

    Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted.

    How can you use the whole lemon or lime without waste?

    Simple…..wash it good and place the fruit in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once it is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole fruit (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

    Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes. All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon or lime juice and vitamin C Not anymore. Now that you’ve learned this secret, you can use it even in instant cup noodles.

    What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon or lime other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

    Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole fruit, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.
    It’s also good that lemon / lime peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

    So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the lemon secret!

    Better late than NEVER!

    The surprising benefits of lemon!
    Lemon or Lime (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.
    Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc… It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant,combats stress and nervous disorders.
    The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas …The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

    CANCER is BIG BUSINESS. Chemo, radiation kill more then cure. Do you really think they want to find a cure? If they did, it would but millions out of work and they would loose billions in the use of cancer drugs. Eat right and stop smoking. No processed foods. Eat Organic everything. I was witness to a friends death due to cancer. Three years into treatment. And he died any way. Not once did his doctor tell him that he will not be cured. He thought that he would at least last a few more years. Chemo kills everything that is in your body. Good Cells, and bad cells.

  14. The truth is out there says:

    Avoiding the causes of cancer is just as important as any treatment.

    There is a lot of information on the internet and starting points listed below can include the following on helping to improve diet and lifestyle, feel free to choose the ones you want to avoid and ones to use.

    Avoid the following (helps with health): milk and dairy, wheat and gluten, aspartame, mercury, aluminium, non stick cookware, hydrogenated fats/oils, GMO foods, msg, microwaved food and drink, alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs, meat, fluoride. HFCS/glucose fructose syrup. Reduce exposure if possible to bpa (possibly bps) and vaccines. Aluminium is also found in Chemtrails that is impossible to avoid.

    Use organic if possible and also reduce (if possible) use of irradiated foods.

    Use Vitamin D3, vitamin B12, vitamin B17 (found in apricot seeds inside the apricot stone) folic acid, organic coconut oil as well as the following (not all at the same time!) cinnamon, garlic, turmeric, cayenne, ginger and organic fruit will help.

    Vitamin D articles:
    http://rense.com/general95/vitDalert.html
    http://rense.com/general95/comingdem.html
    http://pandemicsurvivor.com

    Vitamin D3 has been shown to be very effective at destroying and preventing cancers. The levels in everyone are different and a vitamin D3 blood test is needed called 25OH (D3). There s some confusion between vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 Vitamin D2 and D3 ARE NOT THE SAME. Vitamin D2 is toxic at much lower levels in humans, while he body can use far greater amounts of vitamin D3.

    Vitamin D3 is safe for humans at higher doses but is not safe for rodents.

    Vitamin D2 is safe for rodents at higher doses but is not safe for humans.

    Unfortunately, due to losing several friends to cancer I have done a ton of research. Please consider this info if you or a loved one has cancer. Balance your PH level. Do this immediately. Eat lots of green foods, but also buy and take Buffer PH. Diet alone won’t do it. Take vitamin D3, if you are healthy take 5,000-10,000 unit per day, for cancer take 20,000IU per day. Then I suggest you buy Poly-mva and see a naturopathic physician. For skin cancer take lots of OMega 3 fatty acids and everyone should be taking lots of tumeric!

      I agree with you. I had cancer. Only 11 months after my mother died of breast cancer, I got it. My tumor was not genetic. Government breast cancer mortality map correlates with government nuclear map, across the country. I also learned from Dr. Samuel Epstein (occupational and environmental medicine) that 10 years of mammogram = the same radiation as if you live within 1 /2 mile of Hiroshima. Thermal Imaging can find breast cancer up to 10 years before mammogram, without radiation, in color. Some hospitals want to get a return on the mammogram equipment and so are unlikely to promote thermal imaging; this said by 2 oncologists. Also: GE and Westinghouse make nuclear plants. GE makes mammogram machine and GE makes radiation machine. Radiation causes cancer. The medical industrial complex is big business. Pursuit of ph balence of body saved my life for lung cancer 5 years after radiation treatment for breast cancer. Got to build up immine systme and do not stuff angry feelings, it may lower your immune system

    I know several people who have undergone the usual poison/slash/burn and not one was ever cured of cancer. All of them died pretty horrible painful deaths suffering more from the treatment then the disease. I have a friend right now who I warned but she wouldn’t listen to me. Well she did a little bit and decided not to do chemo but she still did radiation for so-called breast cancer, a small lump in her breast. She not only still has the lump but now she can hardly breathe because the radiation destroyed her lungs so she may be planning to have to get oxygen tanks to breathe with. So her whole life has changed and her so-called breast cancer still is not gone. I had a lump in my breast that was cancer and I refused to have anything to do with the doctors. I did not get a biopsy, NOTHING! I figured that is fine, I will go if it is my time and guess what…the lump disappeared one day. But it took nearly exactly 10 years for it to go away. I am still here, just fine – no health problems except for acid reflux now and then (after eating anything with black pepper) but I got rid of that too by not eating anything with black pepper.

    If we let our bodies take care of itself, it will be just fine. We have to have better faith in our own bodies to know better for itself than someone in a suit trained a few years when it took millions of years for our bodies to learn what to do.

    A great web site for understanding cancer as well as curing it is http://www.topicalinfo.org They show protocols for skin cancer but these protocols apply to all cancers because I believe that cancer is a metabolic disorder.

    When it comes to cancer research and treatment then search for Royal Raymond Rife! Here is a documentary that reveals why this great invention that could be used today for curing safely not only cancer but also many other diseases, is not in use today:
