While uploading our ebooks in Smashwords I came across this book by Sonja M. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/399635
Why did she write this ebook: Because … “my father was diagnosed with colon cancer, and less than a year later, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.”
So Sonja started to do some reading and researching. And these are what the author wrote:
Let’s face it, cancer is a Billion-Dollar Business. This means that the FDA and pharmaceutical companies that promote and sell cancer drugs have a lot to gain if they can get you to buy what they are selling. Most cancer treatments are temporary at best, with little to offer in the way of actually curing the disease.
Who Can We Rely On?
What we know for sure is that cancer is a man-made disease. It is also a fact that we can get cancer from everyday living conditions. In order to change direction, we must first shift our focus.
Prevention begins with You, so be selective about the information that you choose to rely upon, because some of the current recommendations are not only outdated, but they can be downright deadly — all in the name of financial gain.
In order to achieve progression, we must become proactive.”
Most of the medications that are advertised on television paint a beautiful picture of the drug making it sound as if it will cure whatever is ailing you; but then you hear the laundry list of side effects…..”This drug may cause dizziness, heart problems, seizures, incontinence, blood clots, cancer and death.”
Does it really benefit you to take a medication to cure one problem if the side effects will create even more?
What is the government doing in the war against cancer?
During Richard Nixon’s presidency, he allotted 1.6 billion dollars to wage a war against cancer by creating the National Cancer Act in 1971. This gave birth to the National Cancer Program, and many hoped that this act would lead to a cure for cancer in the near future.
Sadly, most Americans have not and will not benefit from the advancements that resulted from the National Cancer Act, because of the problems in our political system.
Even though 40 years have passed, the war is still going strong but the optimism has faded.
Where Are We Now In The War Against Cancer?
The war on cancer is somewhat like the war on drugs … It will never be won.
Why? Because there is more profit in treating cancer than in curing it.
When the government and pharmaceutical companies evolve enough where people become more important than profits, it is then that we will find a cure. Until that day arrives, we need to seek out ways to prevent it from happening in the first place.
The Conspiracy of Pharmaceutical Companies
The main objective of the American Cancer Society is to provide warm hands of service to people who already have cancer, and to promote the prevention of the disease to those who don’t.
The ACS should be prioritizing the needs of people with cancer, but since their funding comes from the donations given by various organizations and large pharmaceutical companies, their priorities come first.
If “Big Pharma” can continue to push the industry to rely on their treatments, they can continue to make the money that enables them to donate to the “cause.”
Sound familiar? Of course it does…this is exactly what happens in our government –“You scratch my back, and I‘ll scratch yours.”
Why would the ACS be associating with people who are clearly in the business of Cancer? In a word… MONEY.
The ACS is a non-profit organization, and yet the CEO earns $2 million dollars a year? They claim that this is done to have “stable management” within the organization. Imagine what that same $2 million dollars per year could do for 100 patients and their families who are dealing with cancer?
Doctors Pressuring Patients to go for “Standard Care”
As people begin to educate themselves about alternative therapies, they begin to shy away from what is known as “standardized care. “
On the other hand, doctors tend to push for this standard care because it brings them income. This income is not just from their patients; it also comes in the form of kickbacks from the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture the drugs that they prescribe to you and me.
Chemotherapy – Friend or Foe?
It is a known fact that once a patient undergoes chemotherapy, his quality of life decreases. It is definitely not a 100% sure way to fight cancer, and the side effects are usually severe. For some, cancer comes out of remission with a vengeance attacking the healthy cells that are in its path.
Chemotherapy poisons your body in an attempt to kill the cancer cells before the actual “treatment” even begins. And since chemotherapy harms your good cells, it harms your body as a whole. But instead of warning us about the dangers of this treatment, a large portion of the medical community continues to advocate its use.
Despite the many promising but unreliable benefits of chemotherapy, it’s easy to see why most doctors highly recommend this method of treatment instead of alternative methods. As long as doctors and pharmaceutical companies continue to make money from chemotherapy, they will continue to recommend it to us.
Aside from being dangerous, chemotherapy can be very expensive …..
Some of the side effects of chemotherapy include: excruciating pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, bleeding, dizziness, loss of hair, and the inability to sleep or eat.
According to Chemotherapyfacts.com, the following cancer drug is one of the newer cancer treatments that can cost as much as $10,000.
Oxaliplatin – this drug is used in combination with other medications to treat advanced cancer of the colon or rectum.
The mild side effects include: constipation, decreased appetite, diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, hair loss, gas, hiccups, headache, stomach pain, muscle or joint aches, runny nose, vomiting, heartburn, increased tears, nausea, change in taste, problems sleeping, and weight loss.
Here are just a few of the severe side effects: Vision loss, wheezing, trouble walking, swallowing or speaking, problems performing daily tasks like writing or buttoning a shirt, unusual bruising or bleeding, irregular heartbeat, muscle pain or cramps (symptoms of low potassium levels), blood in the stool, yellowing of the eyes, dark urine and pale stools, nausea and loss of appetite (symptoms of liver problems), blood in urine, slurred speech, confusion, fainting and persistent dizziness.
Wow, if the treatment phase doesn’t kill you, the side effects surely will!
