Alternative cures for cancer - Nature's Way!

I have been doing a lot of research on finding natural cures for prostate cancer, which I was diagnosed having this spring. The treatment for this type of cancer, surgery or radiation, both have some devastating side effects.

Some of my research has turned up the fact that vitamin D is deficient in a lot of men who get this disease. Even John Hopkins and Roswell Park, two known cancer research centers, are advocating getting more vitamin D in your system to prevent all sorts of cancer. I was supposed to be part of a trial with Roswell for this, but decided to do it on my own as they were going to give mega doses of vitamin D, and I now read that can be harmful.

Another thing that is natural that is proven to help cancer is Zyflamend, which has been proven to inhibit 78 percent of prostate cancer cells. This article goes into depth about that...

http://www.bio-medicine.org/medicine-news/Zyflamend-inhibits-78-percent-of-prostate-cancer-cells-5884-1/

Tomatoes and tomato paste, sauce, ketchup and other byproducts are supposed to help reduce the cancer or prevent it, along with other veggies such as brocolli.

I finally found a site that is very interesting and it came at the nick of time, as I didn't know what I was going to do. Was leaning on having the radiation, but now am reconsidering after starting to read this.

This is a free Ebook online called Cancer Tutor, cancertutor.com, where they have Alternative Cancer Treatments. You will be amazed at how the medical industry is aimed at keeping cancer alive an well, while sacrificing the patients it is supposed to save...

I have known for a long time that the big business of medicine, doctors and related industries have a gold mine going that isn't going to run out of money for a long time.

Certain diseases like cancer could have been cured around 50 years ago if the medical institutions put their minds to it. Oh, they claim to be working for the cure, but in reality, they just want to continue getting rich off the sick patients.

Here's one of the segments in the eBook I linked to above about how the medical industry is in business to preserve the golden goose that is screwing over the common people...

http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/NoCancer1.html

In about 1910 the pharmaceutical industry and the American Medical Association (AMA) and Congress all agreed that medical doctors would only be allowed to use prescription drugs (i.e. highly profitable man-made molecules) in the treatment of all diseases.

This was a win-win situation for Big Medicine (the AMA) and Big Pharma (the pharmaceutical industry) because the AMA was nothing more than a labor union and Big Pharma was only interested in making massive profits.

However, for cancer patients and other patients with serious diseases, the agreement was a disaster. Prescription drugs (and surgery and radiation) cannot cure any disease, by design. The "design" of orthodox medicine is to maximize their profits by considering all diseases to be "chronic diseases."

Enter the FDA (Food and Drug Administation). The FDA made things even worse, in fact much worse. The FDA has existed in various forms for over a hundred years, but since 1910 it has been the "Police Force" of Big Pharma and Big Medicine. The FDA was the gift to Big Pharma and Big Medicine by Congress for all the "benefits" Big Pharma showed to Congress.

The FDA has "rigged" their regulations to make sure that it is impossible for natural products to be "approved" to treat disease. This leaves the door wide open for Big Pharma and Big Medicine to have no competition in the treatment of diseases.

For example, if a medical doctor uses one of the potent alternative cancer treatments they will almost certainly lose their license to practice medicine. This is because they are using "unapproved" treatments, meaning natural treatments.

By using "approved" substances (i.e. prescription drugs), instead of "unapproved" substances (i.e. natural substances) all diseases are guaranteed to be "chronic" diseases, meaning very, very profitable for a long time. It was profits that the AMA and Big Pharma were interested in and Congress gave them everything they wanted, even their own police force.

ABOUT MEDIA'S ROLE IN PROPAGATING THE MYTH

Almost every human being on planet earth gets their information about medicine from Big Media. The mass media receives tens of billions of dollars a year from the pharmaceutical industry in the form of advertising fees. The advertisements not only brainwash the American people, but the advertising fees buy the complete loyalty of Big Media to orthodox medicine.

The only free speech in America is for people with tens of billions of dollars. Big Media also has their very own police force, the FCC.

Almost all of the cancer patients who look into alternative cancer treatments have been sent home to die and you can thank the media for that!! The media makes sure everyone in America gets a full diet of televisions shows which glorify prescription-drug selling medical doctors.
 
From what I have read from the web site I posted above is that most cancers are caused by the diet we have. While other cancers, such as lung cancer is caused by smoking and some people have gotten cancer from environmental hazards, it seems that a diet that is loaded with fats and sugar is likely to someday cause cancer.

There are diets that are supposed to revert cancer cells back to normal cells, but the problem is that the person on the diet has cut out just about everything. Grains, all dairy products, coffee, alcholol and other things are wiped out of the diet. There are lots of good foods that you can eat like broccoli and carrots to name two.

Here's is the link to another good site, the Independent Cancer Research Foundation...

http://www.new-cancer-treatments.org/

In my research, I have come across many different opinons, even among alternative cancer experts about the best foods and supplements to take. Some say that soy products are some of the best ones to take, while others warn that soy products cause more harm than good.

I found this one web site and decided it would be good to share this one with everyone...

NATURAL CANCER CURE

By Dr. Jerry Lee Hoover N.D.


Cancer is a uniquely western problem. One out of three Americans die of cancer, it used to be one out of four. People in China, Japan and Southeast Asia seldom have cancer. Yet in North America, Australia, New Zealand and affluent countries in Europe cancer is epidemic.

WHY? FAULTY DIET IS A MAJOR CAUSE
In 1979 a special report was issued by the U.S. Surgeon General, citing more than 2,000 scientific studies from around the world, and compiled with the advice of more than 2,000 doctors, nutritionist and biochemists, who concluded that the normal American diet is dangerous. Of the 2.1 million Americans who died that year, the report said that 1.5 million died from diseases associated with diet. The report stressed that most people should reduce the consumption of fat, especially saturated fats, such as from eggs, butter, or untrimmed red meats.(1)

Researchers at the University of Victoria in British Columbia did a careful follow up on 200 persons who underwent a "spontaneous remission of cancer". They found that 87% of those persons had switched diets, usually to a vegetarian diet.

Recently a link between excessive meat eating and cancer has been explained by Dr. Williard J. Visek a research scientist at Cornell University. The problem, according to Dr. Visek, is ammonia the carcinogenic by-product of meat digestion.

Although cancer is increasing at an alarming rate and it can be prevented, by keeping our body’s immune system up. Much poisoning of the body has been caused by the use of improper foods, such as meat, dairy products, white sugar, white flour, white rice, along with the use of liquor, tobacco, coffee, soda and all other denatured foods. Good wholesome food builds good blood, where as unwholesome foods builds a poor quality of blood. Cancer will not develop where there is a pure blood stream and the body’s immune system is functioning at its optimum.

For years the National Cancer Institute held fast to the principal that diet had nothing to do with cancer. Recent overwhelming evidence has forced them to change their mind. They now even recommend that one consume certain fruits and vegetables in order to prevent cancer. “Fruits, such as oranges and bananas, and leafy green and yellow vegetables, including carrots and broccoli, all contain cancer preventing vitamins and fiber, and should be a part of everyone’s daily dietâ€, says the National Cancer Institute.

To prevent and cure cancer we must keep our body’s immune system high. This is done by following eight simple rules that I will briefly cover here. Lots of fresh air, using lots of pure water, eating lots of wholesome natural foods, getting sufficient rest, moderate daily exercise, getting outside in the sun everyday, being temperate in all we eat and do and having faith in God.

Every one of us has cancer cells within us. Cancer has to be treated by building the body’s immune system then the body’s white blood cells, etc. will attack and destroy the cancer from within. Cancer cells are weaker than normal cells and will not get out of control if our immune system is high.


HOW DO WE FIGHT CANCER
There is no one drug, herb, or treatment that will kill cancer. Cancer has to be treated by building the body’s immune system. Listed here are some natural ways to help build the immune system.

ELIMINATE SUGAR AND JUNK FOODS
Eating white sugar will paralyze and hinder your white blood cells from fighting off an infection. Eating 25 teaspoons of sugar will paralyze 92% of your white blood cells for approximately five hours. The average American eats over 42 teaspoons of sugar per day. For example: A banana split has 24 teaspoons of sugar. A 12 oz coke has approx. 8-10 teaspoons, a piece of white bread 2 teaspoons. It must be remembered that sugar or empty calories and junk foods interfere with the working of the body’s immune system.

ELIMINATE HIGH FAT DIET
Diets high in refined fats have long been associated with increased cancer risk. Breast cancer is more frequent in women on diets high in both saturated fats, (whole milk), and in animal fat.(2) A low fat diet not only prevents breast cancer but increases the survival of women who already have breast cancer. (3)

EAT A TOTALLY RAW DIET
This is or will be the hardest single thing to follow, but it is very important. Only raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and sprouted grains are what you will be eating until your cancer is in remission. Nothing cooked, no cooked beans, bread, potatoes, etc. Sounds tough, but let me tell you this is much easier then taking chemotherapy and having your hair fall out, vomiting, being weak, etc. And ,of course chemotherapy will not build up your immune system. Instead it will tear it down. Raw food is live food and possesses the highest nutritive value. It is full of vitamins, mineral, enzymes, phytochemicals, etc. Cooked food is dead food, plant any seed and it will grow. Cook the seed and then plant it and it will not grow, because it’s life principle has been destroyed. . Place cancer cells in a cooked media and they will proliferate. Now place the cancer cells in a raw matter and they will disappear! This astounding fact is known to the Cancer society, but the public was never informed. (4)

DO NOT EAT BETWEEN MEALS
A Swedish study indicated the frequency of snack eating may be related to the risk of colon cancer. Earlier, largely ignored studies have suggested that each eating episode over the course of the day increases colon cancer risk. Regular meal intake did not seem to produce the same risk as did snack consumption. (Cancer Causes and Control3: 77-81,1992)

DRINK ONE TO THREE GLASSES OF CARROT JUICE DAILY
Carrots are a very good source of Vitamin A, and the juice should be taken 15-30 minutes before your vegetable meal. A recent study done by Dr. Raymond J. Shamberger, Professor of the Dept. of Biochemistry, the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, showed that Vitamin A is one of the most important aids


to the body’s defense system fighting and preventing cancer. When subjected to carcinogens, this vitamin has a remarkable ability to inhibit the introduction and or retard the growth of both malignant and non-malignant tumors. (5)

DRINK PLENTY OF PURE SOFT WATER
How much is plenty? It depends upon how much you weigh, you take your weight, divide it in half and that is how many ounces of water you need in a 24 hour period. Of course if you are working out in the hot sun and perspiring a lot you would need more. For example: you weigh 160 lbs. Half of that is 80 so you need 80 ounces, which would be 10 eight ounce glasses. The type of water we need to drink is soft water, that is water that has no minerals, as the minerals in water are inorganic and are harmful to our health. Where as the minerals in food are organic and our body needs this type of minerals. Two types of water that have no minerals are distilled water and reverse-osmosis water.

TAKE DAILY SUNBATHS
Expose as much of the body to the sun. If you have a light complexion start with ten minutes and gradually increase it to a minimum of one hour a day. While sun bathing use no lotions, sunscreens (they can cause cancer), or oils. Do not wear glasses while sun bathing as it is important for the ultraviolet light to get into the eyes, and glass of any kind will keep the rays out. Interferon is effective against several different kinds of cancer including carcinoma, sarcoma and leukemia. This fact spurred the American Cancer Society; to purchase interferon from Finland for experimental use. Dr. Hans Strander of Finland discovered that he could give interferon to terminal bone cancer patients and double the number of long term disease free survivors. White blood cells in our bodies manufacture this wonderful interferon that can help so dramatically in cancer. Sunlight is a great stimulus for increased white blood cell production and thereby increases the production of interferon.

BARE FEET ON THE SOIL EVERY DAY
Everything on this earth has an electrical frequency, the earth, the seeds, the plants animals, and the human body. Cancer cells have a different electrical frequency than normal cells. Our bodies can easily get off the electrical frequency that they are suppose to be on. How can we get it back on track? Very simply, by standing or walking bare foot in the soil. Wearing shoes is not a natural thing, although we need to protect our feet, as shoes insulate our body from the earth so it would be good to spend at least 10 minutes a day outside barefoot in the soil.

GET PLENTY OF FRESH AIR
Deep breathing of fresh outside negatively charged air, (the good kind), helps cleanse the lungs and increase circulation. Fresh air from the ocean, near a river or waterfall or after a rain storm is not only negatively charged but is high in oxygen which is very beneficial for cancer. Be sure to have plenty of fresh air in your bedroom as you sleep, keep a window open, even in the winter the window should be partially open. A fact worth knowing is that cancer cells cannot live in the presence of oxygen. (6)

EXERCISE OUT OF DOORS
Brisk walking, no jogging, from one to five miles a day is excellent exercise. If you do not have the strength, start slowly and gradually increase the distance. Exercise outside is 10 times more beneficial then indoors. When exercising inside you do not receive the suns rays or the pure fresh air. Working out in a gym is like working out in a smelly tennis shoe.

GET 7-8 HOURS SLEEP EVERY NIGHT
The earlier you go to bed the better. Every hour of sleep before midnight is worth two hours, every hour after midnight is worth one.

USE HERBS TAKE NO SUPPLEMENTS OF ANY KIND
There are many herbs for cancer, but the one I highly recommend is Red Clover. You use only the flower, not the stem or roots. Red clover contains the following chemicals: biotin, choline, copper, coumarins, glycosides, inositol, magnesium, manganese, and selenium. It also contains vitamins: A, B1, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, B17, C, P and the mineral Zinc. This is quite an assortment of minerals and vitamins for one herb. And possibly in the future we will discover it contains other important ingredients. Red Clover has been used in America for over 100 years to treat and prevent cancer. It is good for cancer on any part of the body. I have personally used it for many years at my clinic and have seen many individuals recover from cancer.

Use only the bulk red clover flowers, not the stem or roots, use no red clover capsules. Make a tea by bringing the water to a boil, removing from the heat and adding the herb. Let it steep for 20 minutes or longer. Use one to two teaspoons of herb per cup of tea. The best time to take the tea is at night before bed on an empty stomach. If you take it twice a day then also first thing in the morning when you first get up on an empty stomach.


You can order the herb Red Clover from Frontier Herbs Phone 1-800-669-3275 or on line at www.frontierherbs.com

Red Clover is now being studied for anti-aids and anti-diabetic activity. (7)

INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BREAST CANCER
When one has breast cancer they need to improve the circulation of the blood flowing through the breast. Two ways to do this is daily massaging the breasts and the other way is through hydro therapy. You fill two pans with water one with very hot water the other with very cold water containing ice cubes. You start by wringing out a wash cloth in the hot water and applying it to the breast and than covering it with a dry towel, leave it on the breast for 3 minutes. Than remove the wash cloth and apply a wash cloth that has been taken out of the ice water, apply it to the breast for only ONE minute and cover with a dry towel. You need to do this three times in a row. First hot than cold than hot than cold than hot than the last application is cold. What this does is that when you apply the hot water it draws the blood to the breast, when you apply the cold water it chases the blood from the breast. This is a very efficient way to improve the circulation in the breast, this improved circulation helps to carry away the toxins in the breast and will also start breaking down the cancer and carrying it away.

You should use no deodorants as they are one of the causes of breast cancer, most breast cancers are located in the area of the breast near the arm pit. Under your arm you have major lymph glands and when you use deodorants which contain aluminum and other toxic ingredients they can enter the lymph system. The antiperspirant deodorants are the most harmful as they block the skin pores from sweating out the impurities in the body, so they are re absorbed into the body and breast area.

Also using any type of milk, eggs or dairy products are another cause of breast cancer, as these are high in artificially added hormones that can increase cancer of the breast and female organs. Also birth control pills are another cause of cancer of the breast and female organs.

LEARN TO DEAL WITH STRESS
Almost everyone I have personally known, who has come down with cancer, has been under a lot of stress prior to getting cancer. We must learn to take the problems we cannot handle to God, (The Greatest Healer Of All Time). We cannot hold anger, hate, selfishness, etc. inside ourselves or we will not recover. The mind greatly affects the body. I believe that 90% of all sickness starts in the mind. King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived said, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicineâ€, Proverbs 17:22

WHAT CANCER CAN'T DO It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot eat away at peace,
It cannot destroy confidence,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot shut out memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot evade the soul.
It cannot reduce eternal life,


IN CONCLUSION
If a person who has cancer follows the simple things I have outlined in this article they will notice improvement within less then two weeks, the closer you follow this program the faster you will improve. JUST THINK, it is possible for you to heal yourself, you do not always need surgery or expensive dangerous drugs. All you need to do is follow what I have outlined here.

Yours For Better Health,

I had been drinking soy milk for about a year, replacing regular milk. Had been using Rich's Farm Rich until that was taken off the shelves and replaced that with Half & Half. But that has milk in it so I needed to find an alternative. Eventually, I went to Almond Breeze, which is made from almonds.

Soy milk, I found out, is really pretty bad, with many side effects that could even promote cancer. It depends on who you listen to, but I feel that an alternative to soy milk and products needs to be found. I found Almond Breeze and see how that goes.

Check these out. You will reconsider drinking soy milk!

Newest Research On Why You Should Avoid Soy

by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD

Each year, research on the health effects of soy and soybean components seems to increase exponentially. Furthermore, research is not just expanding in the primary areas under investigation, such as cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis; new findings suggest that soy has potential benefits that may be more extensive than previously thought.

So writes Mark Messina, PhD, General Chairperson of the Third International Soy Symposium, held in Washington, DC, in November 1999.1 For four days, well-funded scientists gathered in Washington made presentations to an admiring press and to their sponsors - United Soybean Board, American Soybean Association, Monsanto, Protein Technologies International, Central Soya, Cargill Foods, Personal Products Company, SoyLife, Whitehall-Robins Healthcare and the soybean councils of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio and South Dakota.

The symposium marked the apogee of a decade-long marketing campaign to gain consumer acceptance of tofu, soy milk, soy ice cream, soy cheese, soy sausage and soy derivatives, particularly soy isoflavones like genistein and diadzen, the oestrogen-like compounds found in soybeans. It coincided with a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decision, announced on October 25, 1999, to allow a health claim for products "low in saturated fat and cholesterol" that contain 6.25 grams of soy protein per serving. Breakfast cereals, baked goods, convenience food, smoothie mixes and meat substitutes could now be sold with labels touting benefits to cardiovascular health, as long as these products contained one heaping teaspoon of soy protein per 100-gram serving.

Marketing The Perfect Food
"Just imagine you could grow the perfect food. This food not only would provide affordable nutrition, but also would be delicious and easy to prepare in a variety of ways. It would be a healthful food, with no saturated fat. In fact, you would be growing a virtual fountain of youth on your back forty." The author is Dean Houghton, writing for The Furrow,2 a magazine published in 12 languages by John Deere. "This ideal food would help prevent, and perhaps reverse, some of the world's most dreaded diseases. You could grow this miracle crop in a variety of soils and climates. Its cultivation would build up, not deplete, the land...this miracle food already exists... It's called soy."

Just imagine. Farmers have been imagining - and planting more soy. What was once a minor crop, listed in the 1913 US Department of Agriculture (USDA) handbook not as a food but as an industrial product, now covers 72 million acres of American farmland. Much of this harvest will be used to feed chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and salmon. Another large fraction will be squeezed to produce oil for margarine, shortenings and salad dressings.

Advances in technology make it possible to produce isolated soy protein from what was once considered a waste product - the defatted, high-protein soy chips - and then transform something that looks and smells terrible into products that can be consumed by human beings. Flavorings, preservatives, sweeteners, emulsifiers and synthetic nutrients have turned soy protein isolate, the food processors' ugly duckling, into a New Age Cinderella.

The new fairy-tale food has been marketed not so much for her beauty but for her virtues. Early on, products based on soy protein isolate were sold as extenders and meat substitutes - a strategy that failed to produce the requisite consumer demand. The industry changed its approach. "The quickest way to gain product acceptability in the less affluent society," said an industry spokesman, "is to have the product consumed on its own merit in a more affluent society."3 So soy is now sold to the upscale consumer, not as a cheap, poverty food but as a miracle substance that will prevent heart disease and cancer, whisk away hot flushes, build strong bones and keep us forever young. The competition - meat, milk, cheese, butter and eggs - has been duly demonised by the appropriate government bodies. Soy serves as meat and milk for a new generation of virtuous vegetarians.

Marketing costs money, especially when it needs to be bolstered with "research", but there's plenty of funds available. All soybean producers pay a mandatory assessment of one-half to one per cent of the net market price of soybeans. The total - something like US$80 million annually - supports United Soybean's program to "strengthen the position of soybeans in the marketplace and maintain and expand domestic and foreign markets for uses for soybeans and soybean products". State soybean councils from Maryland, Nebraska, Delaware, Arkansas, Virginia, North Dakota and Michigan provide another $2.5 million for "research".5 Private companies like Archer Daniels Midland also contribute their share. ADM spent $4.7 million for advertising on Meet the Press and $4.3 million on Face the Nation during the course of a year.6 Public relations firms help convert research projects into newspaper articles and advertising copy, and law firms lobby for favorable government regulations. IMF money funds soy processing plants in foreign countries, and free trade policies keep soybean abundance flowing to overseas destinations.

The push for more soy has been relentless and global in its reach. Soy protein is now found in most supermarket breads. It is being used to transform "the humble tortilla, Mexico's corn-based staple food, into a protein-fortified 'super-tortilla' that would give a nutritional boost to the nearly 20 million Mexicans who live in extreme poverty".7 Advertising for a new soy-enriched loaf from Allied Bakeries in Britain targets menopausal women seeking relief from hot flushes. Sales are running at a quarter of a million loaves per week.8

The soy industry hired Norman Robert Associates, a public relations firm, to "get more soy products onto school menus".9 The USDA responded with a proposal to scrap the 30 per cent limit for soy in school lunches. The NuMenu program would allow unlimited use of soy in student meals. With soy added to hamburgers, tacos and lasagna, dieticians can get the total fat content below 30 per cent of calories, thereby conforming to government dictates. "With the soy-enhanced food items, students are receiving better servings of nutrients and less cholesterol and fat."

Soy milk has posted the biggest gains, soaring from $2 million in 1980 to $300 million in the US last year.10 Recent advances in processing have transformed the gray, thin, bitter, beany-tasting Asian beverage into a product that Western consumers will accept - one that tastes like a milkshake, but without the guilt.

Processing miracles, good packaging, massive advertising and a marketing strategy that stresses the products' possible health benefits account for increasing sales to all age groups. For example, reports that soy helps prevent prostate cancer have made soy milk acceptable to middle-aged men. "You don't have to twist the arm of a 55- to 60-year-old guy to get him to try soy milk," says Mark Messina. Michael Milken, former junk bond financier, has helped the industry shed its hippie image with well-publicized efforts to consume 40 grams of soy protein daily.

America today, tomorrow the world. Soy milk sales are rising in Canada, even though soy milk there costs twice as much as cow's milk. Soybean milk processing plants are sprouting up in places like Kenya.11 Even China, where soy really is a poverty food and whose people want more meat, not tofu, has opted to build Western-style soy factories rather than develop western grasslands for grazing animals.12

Cinderella's Dark Side
The propaganda that has created the soy sales miracle is all the more remarkable because, only a few decades ago, the soybean was considered unfit to eat - even in Asia. During the Chou Dynasty (1134-246 BC) the soybean was designated one of the five sacred grains, along with barley, wheat, millet and rice. However, the pictograph for the soybean, which dates from earlier times, indicates that it was not first used as a food; for whereas the pictographs for the other four grains show the seed and stem structure of the plant, the pictograph for the soybean emphasizes the root structure. Agricultural literature of the period speaks frequently of the soybean and its use in crop rotation. Apparently the soy plant was initially used as a method of fixing nitrogen.13

The soybean did not serve as a food until the discovery of fermentation techniques, some time during the Chou Dynasty. The first soy foods were fermented products like tempeh, natto, miso and soy sauce. At a later date, possibly in the 2nd century BC, Chinese scientists discovered that a purée of cooked soybeans could be precipitated with calcium sulfate or magnesium sulfate (plaster of Paris or Epsom salts) to make a smooth, pale curd - tofu or bean curd. The use of fermented and precipitated soy products soon spread to other parts of the Orient, notably Japan and Indonesia. The Chinese did not eat unfermented soybeans as they did other legumes such as lentils because the soybean contains large quantities of natural toxins or "antinutrients". First among them are potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion. These inhibitors are large, tightly folded proteins that are not completely deactivated during ordinary cooking. They can produce serious gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake. In test animals, diets high in trypsin inhibitors cause enlargement and pathological conditions of the pancreas, including cancer. 14

Soybeans also contain haemagglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that causes red blood cells to clump together.

Trypsin inhibitors and haemagglutinin are growth inhibitors. Weanling rats fed soy containing these antinutrients fail to grow normally. Growth-depressant compounds are deactivated during the process of fermentation, so once the Chinese discovered how to ferment the soybean, they began to incorporate soy foods into their diets. In precipitated products, enzyme inhibitors concentrate in the soaking liquid rather than in the curd. Thus, in tofu and bean curd, growth depressants are reduced in quantity but not completely eliminated.

Soy also contains goitrogens - substances that depress thyroid function.

Soybeans are high in phytic acid, present in the bran or hulls of all seeds. It's a substance that can block the uptake of essential minerals - calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc - in the intestinal tract. Although not a household word, phytic acid has been extensively studied; there are literally hundreds of articles on the effects of phytic acid in the current scientific literature. Scientists are in general agreement that grain- and legume-based diets high in phytates contribute to widespread mineral deficiencies in third world countries.15 Analysis shows that calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc are present in the plant foods eaten in these areas, but the high phytate content of soy- and grain-based diets prevents their absorption.

The soybean has one of the highest phytate levels of any grain or legume that has been studied,16 and the phytates in soy are highly resistant to normal phytate-reducing techniques such as long, slow cooking.17 Only a long period of fermentation will significantly reduce the phytate content of soybeans. When precipitated soy products like tofu are consumed with meat, the mineral-blocking effects of the phytates are reduced. 18 The Japanese traditionally eat a small amount of tofu or miso as part of a mineral-rich fish broth, followed by a serving of meat or fish.

Vegetarians who consume tofu and bean curd as a substitute for meat and dairy products risk severe mineral deficiencies. The results of calcium, magnesium and iron deficiency are well known; those of zinc are less so.

Zinc is called the intelligence mineral because it is needed for optimal development and functioning of the brain and nervous system. It plays a role in protein synthesis and collagen formation; it is involved in the blood-sugar control mechanism and thus protects against diabetes; it is needed for a healthy reproductive system. Zinc is a key component in numerous vital enzymes and plays a role in the immune system. Phytates found in soy products interfere with zinc absorption more completely than with other minerals.19 Zinc deficiency can cause a "spacey" feeling that some vegetarians may mistake for the "high" of spiritual enlightenment.

Milk drinking is given as the reason why second-generation Japanese in America grow taller than their native ancestors. Some investigators postulate that the reduced phytate content of the American diet - whatever may be its other deficiencies - is the true explanation, pointing out that both Asian and Western children who do not get enough meat and fish products to counteract the effects of a high phytate diet, frequently suffer rickets, stunting and other growth problems.20


Soy Protein Isolate: Not So Friendly
Soy processors have worked hard to get these antinutrients out of the finished product, particularly soy protein isolate (SPI) which is the key ingredient in most soy foods that imitate meat and dairy products, including baby formulas and some brands of soy milk.

SPI is not something you can make in your own kitchen. Production takes place in industrial factories where a slurry of soy beans is first mixed with an alkaline solution to remove fiber, then precipitated and separated using an acid wash and, finally, neutralized in an alkaline solution. Acid washing in aluminum tanks leaches high levels of aluminum into the final product. The resultant curds are spray- dried at high temperatures to produce a high-protein powder. A final indignity to the original soybean is high-temperature, high-pressure extrusion processing of soy protein isolate to produce textured vegetable protein (TVP).

Much of the trypsin inhibitor content can be removed through high-temperature processing, but not all. Trypsin inhibitor content of soy protein isolate can vary as much as fivefold.21 (In rats, even low-level trypsin inhibitor SPI feeding results in reduced weight gain compared to controls.22) But high-temperature processing has the unfortunate side-effect of so denaturing the other proteins in soy that they are rendered largely ineffective.23 That's why animals on soy feed need lysine supplements for normal growth.

Nitrites, which are potent carcinogens, are formed during spray-drying, and a toxin called lysinoalanine is formed during alkaline processing.24 Numerous artificial flavorings, particularly MSG, are added to soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein products to mask their strong "beany" taste and to impart the flavor of meat.25

In feeding experiments, the use of SPI increased requirements for vitamins E, K, D and B12 and created deficiency symptoms of calcium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, copper, iron and zinc.26 Phytic acid remaining in these soy products greatly inhibits zinc and iron absorption; test animals fed SPI develop enlarged organs, particularly the pancreas and thyroid gland, and increased deposition of fatty acids in the liver. 27

Yet soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein are used extensively in school lunch programs, commercial baked goods, diet beverages and fast food products. They are heavily promoted in third world countries and form the basis of many food giveaway programs.
In spite of poor results in animal feeding trials, the soy industry has sponsored a number of studies designed to show that soy protein products can be used in human diets as a replacement for traditional foods. An example is "Nutritional Quality of Soy Bean Protein Isolates: Studies in Children of Preschool Age", sponsored by the Ralston Purina Company.28 A group of Central American children suffering from malnutrition was first stabilized and brought into better health by feeding them native foods, including meat and dairy products. Then, for a two-week period, these traditional foods were replaced by a drink made of soy protein isolate and sugar. All nitrogen taken in and all nitrogen excreted was measured in truly Orwellian fashion: the children were weighed naked every morning, and all excrement and vomit gathered up for analysis. The researchers found that the children retained nitrogen and that their growth was "adequate", so the experiment was declared a success.

Whether the children were actually healthy on such a diet, or could remain so over a long period, is another matter. The researchers noted that the children vomited "occasionally", usually after finishing a meal; that over half suffered from periods of moderate diarrhoea; that some had upper respiratory infections; and that others suffered from rash and fever.

It should be noted that the researchers did not dare to use soy products to help the children recover from malnutrition, and were obliged to supplement the soy-sugar mixture with nutrients largely absent in soy products - notably, vitamins A, D and B12, iron, iodine and zinc.

FDA Health Claim Challenged
The best marketing strategy for a product that is inherently unhealthy is, of course, a health claim.
"The road to FDA approval," writes a soy apologist, "was long and demanding, consisting of a detailed review of human clinical data collected from more than 40 scientific studies conducted over the last 20 years. Soy protein was found to be one of the rare foods that had sufficient scientific evidence not only to qualify for an FDA health claim proposal but to ultimately pass the rigorous approval process."29

The "long and demanding" road to FDA approval actually took a few unexpected turns. The original petition, submitted by Protein Technology International, requested a health claim for isoflavones, the estrogen-like compounds found plentifully in soybeans, based on assertions that "only soy protein that has been processed in a manner in which isoflavones are retained will result in cholesterol lowering". In 1998, the FDA made the unprecedented move of rewriting PTI's petition, removing any reference to the phyto-estrogens and substituting a claim for soy protein - a move that was in direct contradiction to the agency's regulations. The FDA is authorized to make rulings only on substances presented by petition.

The abrupt change in direction was no doubt due to the fact that a number of researchers, including scientists employed by the US Government, submitted documents indicating that isoflavones are toxic.

The FDA had also received, early in 1998, the final British Government report on phytoestrogens, which failed to find much evidence of benefit and warned against potential adverse effects.30
Even with the change to soy protein isolate, FDA bureaucrats engaged in the "rigorous approval process" were forced to deal nimbly with concerns about mineral blocking effects, enzyme inhibitors, goitrogenicity, endocrine disruption, reproductive problems and increased allergic reactions from consumption of soy products.31

One of the strongest letters of protest came from Dr Dan Sheehan and Dr Daniel Doerge, government researchers at the National Center for Toxicological Research.32 Their pleas for warning labels were dismissed as unwarranted.

"Sufficient scientific evidence" of soy's cholesterol-lowering properties is drawn largely from a 1995 meta-analysis by Dr James Anderson, sponsored by Protein Technologies International and published in the New England Journal of Medicine.33

A meta-analysis is a review and summary of the results of many clinical studies on the same subject. Use of meta-analyses to draw general conclusions has come under sharp criticism by members of the scientific community. "Researchers substituting meta-analysis for more rigorous trials risk making faulty assumptions and indulging in creative accounting," says Sir John Scott, President of the Royal Society of New Zealand. "Like is not being lumped with like. Little lumps and big lumps of data are being gathered together by various groups."34

There is the added temptation for researchers, particularly researchers funded by a company like Protein Technologies International, to leave out studies that would prevent the desired conclusions. Dr Anderson discarded eight studies for various reasons, leaving a remainder of twenty-nine. The published report suggested that individuals with cholesterol levels over 250 mg/dl would experience a "significant" reduction of 7 to 20 per cent in levels of serum cholesterol if they substituted soy protein for animal protein. Cholesterol reduction was insignificant for individuals whose cholesterol was lower than 250 mg/dl.

In other words, for most of us, giving up steak and eating vegieburgers instead will not bring down blood cholesterol levels. The health claim that the FDA approved "after detailed review of human clinical data" fails to inform the consumer about these important details.

Research that ties soy to positive effects on cholesterol levels is "incredibly immature", said Ronald M. Krauss, MD, head of the Molecular Medical Research Program and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.35 He might have added that studies in which cholesterol levels were lowered through either diet or drugs have consistently resulted in a greater number of deaths in the treatment groups than in controls - deaths from stroke, cancer, intestinal disorders, accident and suicide. 36 Cholesterol-lowering measures in the US have fuelled a $60 billion per year cholesterol-lowering industry, but have not saved us from the ravages of heart disease.

Soy And Cancer
The new FDA ruling does not allow any claims about cancer prevention on food packages, but that has not restrained the industry and its marketers from making them in their promotional literature.
"In addition to protecting the heart," says a vitamin company brochure, "soy has demonstrated powerful anticancer benefits...the Japanese, who eat 30 times as much soy as North Americans, have a lower incidence of cancers of the breast, uterus and prostate."37

Indeed they do. But the Japanese, and Asians in general, have much higher rates of other types of cancer, particularly cancer of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas and liver.38 Asians throughout the world also have high rates of thyroid cancer.39 The logic that links low rates of reproductive cancers to soy consumption requires attribution of high rates of thyroid and digestive cancers to the same foods, particularly as soy causes these types of cancers in laboratory rats.

Just how much soy do Asians eat? A 1998 survey found that the average daily amount of soy protein consumed in Japan was about eight grams for men and seven for women - less than two teaspoons.40 The famous Cornell China Study, conducted by Colin T. Campbell, found that legume consumption in China varied from 0 to 58 grams per day, with a mean of about twelve.41 Assuming that two-thirds of legume consumption is soy, then the maximum consumption is about 40 grams, or less than three tablespoons per day, with an average consumption of about nine grams, or less than two teaspoons. A survey conducted in the 1930s found that soy foods accounted for only 1.5 per cent of calories in the Chinese diet, compared with 65 per cent of calories from pork. 42 (Asians traditionally cooked with lard, not vegetable oil!)

Traditionally fermented soy products make a delicious, natural seasoning that may supply important nutritional factors in the Asian diet. But except in times of famine, Asians consume soy products only in small amounts, as condiments, and not as a replacement for animal foods - with one exception. Celibate monks living in monasteries and leading a vegetarian lifestyle find soy foods quite helpful because they dampen libido.

It was a 1994 meta-analysis by Mark Messina, published in Nutrition and Cancer, that fuelled speculation on soy's anticarcinogenic properties.43 Messina noted that in 26 animal studies, 65 per cent reported protective effects from soy. He conveniently neglected to include at least one study in which soy feeding caused pancreatic cancer - the 1985 study by Rackis. 44 In the human studies he listed, the results were mixed. A few showed some protective effect, but most showed no correlation at all between soy consumption and cancer rates. He concluded that "the data in this review cannot be used as a basis for claiming that soy intake decreases cancer risk". Yet in his subsequent book, The Simple Soybean and Your Health, Messina makes just such a claim, recommending one cup or 230 grams of soy products per day in his "optimal" diet as a way to prevent cancer.

Thousands of women are now consuming soy in the belief that it protects them against breast cancer. Yet, in 1996, researchers found that women consuming soy protein isolate had an increased incidence of epithelial hyperplasia, a condition that presages malignancies.45 A year later, dietary genistein was found to stimulate breast cells to enter the cell cycle - a discovery that led the study authors to conclude that women should not consume soy products to prevent breast cancer. 46


Phytoestrogens: Panacea Or Poison?
The male species of tropical birds carries the drab plumage of the female at birth and 'colors up' at maturity, somewhere between nine and 24 months.

In 1991, Richard and Valerie James, bird breeders in Whangerai, New Zealand, purchased a new kind of feed for their birds - one based largely on soy protein.47 When soy-based feed was used, their birds 'colored up' after just a few months. In fact, one bird-food manufacturer claimed that this early development was an advantage imparted by the feed. A 1992 ad for Roudybush feed formula showed a picture of the male crimson rosella, an Australian parrot that acquires beautiful red plumage at 18 to 24 months, already brightly colored at 11 weeks old.

Unfortunately, in the ensuing years, there was decreased fertility in the birds, with precocious maturation, deformed, stunted and stillborn babies, and premature deaths, especially among females, with the result that the total population in the aviaries went into steady decline. The birds suffered beak and bone deformities, goiter, immune system disorders and pathological, aggressive behavior. Autopsy revealed digestive organs in a state of disintegration. The list of problems corresponded with many of the problems the Jameses had encountered in their two children, who had been fed soy-based infant formula.

Startled, aghast, angry, the Jameses hired toxicologist Mike Fitzpatrick. PhD, to investigate further. Dr Fitzpatrick's literature review uncovered evidence that soy consumption has been linked to numerous disorders, including infertility, increased cancer and infantile leukemia; and, in studies dating back to the 1950s,48 that genistein in soy causes endocrine disruption in animals. Dr Fitzpatrick also analyzed the bird feed and found that it contained high levels of phytoestrogens, especially genistein. When the Jameses discontinued using soy-based feed, the flock gradually returned to normal breeding habits and behavior.

The Jameses embarked on a private crusade to warn the public and government officials about toxins in soy foods, particularly the endocrine-disrupting isoflavones, genistein and diadzen. Protein Technology International received their material in 1994.

In 1991, Japanese researchers reported that consumption of as little as 30 grams or two tablespoons of soybeans per day for only one month resulted in a significant increase in thyroid-stimulating hormone.49 Diffuse goiter and hypothyroidism appeared in some of the subjects and many complained of constipation, fatigue and lethargy, even though their intake of iodine was adequate. In 1997, researchers from the FDA's National Center for Toxicological Research made the embarrassing discovery that the goitrogenic components of soy were the very same isoflavones. 50
Twenty-five grams of soy protein isolate, the minimum amount PTI claimed to have cholesterol-lowering effects, contains from 50 to 70 mg of isoflavones. It took only 45 mg of isoflavones in premenopausal women to exert significant biological effects, including a reduction in hormones needed for adequate thyroid function. These effects lingered for three months after soy consumption was discontinued.51

One hundred grams of soy protein - the maximum suggested cholesterol-lowering dose, and the amount recommended by Protein Technologies International - can contain almost 600 mg of isoflavones,52 an amount that is undeniably toxic. In 1992, the Swiss health service estimated that 100 grams of soy protein provided the estrogenic equivalent of the Pill. 53

In vitro studies suggest that isoflavones inhibit synthesis of estradiol and other steroid hormones.54 Reproductive problems, infertility, thyroid disease and liver disease due to dietary intake of isoflavones have been observed for several species of animals including mice, cheetah, quail, pigs, rats, sturgeon and sheep. 55

It is the isoflavones in soy that are said to have a favorable effect on postmenopausal symptoms, including hot flushes, and protection from osteoporosis. Quantification of discomfort from hot flushes is extremely subjective, and most studies show that control subjects report reduction in discomfort in amounts equal to subjects given soy.56 The claim that soy prevents osteoporosis is extraordinary, given that soy foods block calcium and cause vitamin D deficiencies. If Asians indeed have lower rates of osteoporosis than Westerners, it is because their diet provides plenty of vitamin D from shrimp, lard and seafood, and plenty of calcium from bone broths. The reason that Westerners have such high rates of osteoporosis is because they have substituted soy oil for butter, which is a traditional source of vitamin D and other fat-soluble activators needed for calcium absorption.

Birth Control Pills For Babies
But it was the isoflavones in infant formula that gave the Jameses the most cause for concern. In 1998, investigators reported that the daily exposure of infants to isoflavones in soy infant formula is 6 to11 times higher on a body-weight basis than the dose that has hormonal effects in adults consuming soy foods. Circulating concentrations of isoflavones in infants fed soy-based formula were 13,000 to 22,000 times higher than plasma estradiol concentrations in infants on cow's milk formula.57

Approximately 25 per cent of bottle-fed children in the US receive soy-based formula - a much higher percentage than in other parts of the Western world. Fitzpatrick estimated that an infant exclusively fed soy formula receives the estrogenic equivalent (based on body weight) of at least five birth control pills per day.58 By contrast, almost no phytoestrogens have been detected in dairy-based infant formula or in human milk, even when the mother consumes soy products.

Scientists have known for years that soy-based formula can cause thyroid problems in babies. But what are the effects of soy products on the hormonal development of the infant, both male and female?

Male infants undergo a "testosterone surge" during the first few months of life, when testosterone levels may be as high as those of an adult male. During this period, the infant is programmed to express male characteristics after puberty, not only in the development of his sexual organs and other masculine physical traits, but also in setting patterns in the brain characteristic of male behavior. In monkeys, deficiency of male hormones impairs the development of spatial perception (which, in humans, is normally more acute in men than in women), of learning ability and of visual discrimination tasks (such as would be required for reading). 59 It goes without saying that future patterns of sexual orientation may also be influenced by the early hormonal environment. Male children exposed during gestation to diethylstilbestrol (DES), a synthetic estrogen that has effects on animals similar to those of phytoestrogens from soy, had testes smaller than normal on manturation. 60

Learning disabilities, especially in male children, have reached epidemic proportions. Soy infant feeding - which began in earnest in the early 1970s - cannot be ignored as a probable cause for these tragic developments.

As for girls, an alarming number are entering puberty much earlier than normal, according to a recent study reported in the journal Pediatrics.61 Investigators found that one per cent of all girls now show signs of puberty, such as breast development or pubic hair, before the age of three; by age eight, 14.7 per cent of white girls and almost 50 per cent of African-American girls have one or both of these characteristics.

New data indicate that environmental estrogens such as PCBs and DDE (a breakdown product of DDT) may cause early sexual development in girls.62 In the 1986 Puerto Rico Premature Thelarche study, the most significant dietary association with premature sexual development was not chicken - as reported in the press - but soy infant formula.63

The consequences of this truncated childhood are tragic. Young girls with mature bodies must cope with feelings and urges that most children are not well-equipped to handle. And early maturation in girls is frequently a harbinger for problems with the reproductive system later in life, including failure to menstruate, infertility and breast cancer.

Parents who have contacted the Jameses recount other problems associated with children of both sexes who were fed soy-based formula, including extreme emotional behavior, asthma, immune system problems, pituitary insufficiency, thyroid disorders and irritable bowel syndrome - the same endocrine and digestive havoc that afflicted the Jameses' parrots.

Dissension In The Ranks
Organizers of the Third International Soy Symposium would be hard-pressed to call the conference an unqualified success. On the second day of the symposium, the London-based Food Commission and the Weston A. Price Foundation of Washington, DC, held a joint press conference, in the same hotel as the symposium, to present concerns about soy infant formula. Industry representatives sat stony-faced through the recitation of potential dangers and a plea from concerned scientists and parents to pull soy-based infant formula from the market. Under pressure from the Jameses, the New Zealand Government had issued a health warning about soy infant formula in 1998; it was time for the American government to do the same.

On the last day of the symposium, presentations on new findings related to toxicity sent a well-oxygenated chill through the giddy helium hype. Dr Lon White reported on a study of Japanese Americans living in Hawaii, that showed a significant statistical relationship between two or more servings of tofu a week and "accelerated brain aging".64 Those participants who consumed tofu in mid-life had lower cognitive function in late life and a greater incidence of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. "What's more," said Dr White, "those who ate a lot of tofu, by the time they were 75 or 80 looked five years older". 65 White and his colleagues blamed the negative effects on isoflavones - a finding that supports an earlier study in which postmenopausal women with higher levels of circulating estrogen experienced greater cognitive decline. 66

Scientists Daniel Sheehan and Daniel Doerge, from the National Center for Toxicological Research, ruined PTI's day by presenting findings from rat feeding studies, indicating that genistein in soy foods causes irreversible damage to enzymes that synthesise thyroid hormones.67 "The association between soybean consumption and goiter in animals and humans has a long history," wrote Dr Doerge. "Current evidence for the beneficial effects of soy requires a full understanding of potential adverse effects as well."

Dr Claude Hughes reported that rats born to mothers that were fed genistein had decreased birth weights compared to controls, and onset of puberty occurred earlier in male offspring.68 His research suggested that the effects observed in rats "...will be at least somewhat predictive of what occurs in humans. There is no reason to assume that there will be gross malformations of fetuses but there may be subtle changes, such as neurobehavioral attributes, immune function and sex hormone levels." The results, he said, "could be nothing or could be something of great concern...if mom is eating something that can act like sex hormones, it is logical to wonder if that could change the baby's development". 69

A study of babies born to vegetarian mothers, published in January 2000, indicated just what those changes in baby's development might be. Mothers who ate a vegetarian diet during pregnancy had a fivefold greater risk of delivering a boy with hypospadias, a birth defect of the penis. 70 The authors of the study suggested that the cause was greater exposure to phytoestrogens in soy foods popular with vegetarians. Problems with female offspring of vegetarian mothers are more likely to show up later in life. While soy's estrogenic effect is less than that of diethylstilbestrol (DES), the dose is likely to be higher because it's consumed as a food, not taken as a drug. Daughters of women who took DES during pregnancy suffered from infertility and cancer when they reached their twenties.

Question Marks Over Gras Status
Lurking in the background of industry hype for soy is the nagging question of whether it's even legal to add soy protein isolate to food. All food additives not in common use prior to 1958, including casein protein from milk, must have GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status. In 1972, the Nixon administration directed a re-examination of substances believed to be GRAS, in the light of any scientific information then available. This re-examination included casein protein that became codified as GRAS in 1978. In 1974, the FDA obtained a literature review of soy protein because, as soy protein had not been used in food until 1959 and was not even in common use in the early 1970s, it was not eligible to have its GRAS status grandfathered under the provisions of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.71

The scientific literature up to 1974 recognized many antinutrients in factory-made soy protein, including trypsin inhibitors, phytic acid and genistein. But the FDA literature review dismissed discussion of adverse impacts, with the statement that it was important for "adequate processing" to remove them. Genistein could be removed with an alcohol wash, but it was an expensive procedure that processors avoided. Later studies determined that trypsin inhibitor content could be removed only with long periods of heat and pressure, but the FDA has imposed no requirements for manufacturers to do so.

The FDA was more concerned with toxins formed during processing, specifically nitrites and lysinoalanine.72 Even at low levels of consumption - averaging one-third of a gram per day at the time - the presence of these carcinogens was considered too great a threat to public health to allow GRAS status.

Soy protein did have approval for use as a binder in cardboard boxes, and this approval was allowed to continue, as researchers considered that migration of nitrites from the box into the food contents would be too small to constitute a cancer risk. FDA officials called for safety specifications and monitoring procedures before granting of GRAS status for food. These were never performed. To this day, use of soy protein is codified as GRAS only for this limited industrial use as a cardboard binder. This means that soy protein must be subject to premarket approval procedures each time manufacturers intend to use it as a food or add it to a food.

Soy protein was introduced into infant formula in the early 1960s. It was a new product with no history of any use at all. As soy protein did not have GRAS status, premarket approval was required. This was not and still has not been granted. The key ingredient of soy infant formula is not recognized as safe.

The Next Asbestos?
"Against the backdrop of widespread praise...there is growing suspicion that soy - despite its undisputed benefits - may pose some health hazards," writes Marian Burros, a leading food writer for the New York Times. More than any other writer, Ms Burros's endorsement of a low-fat, largely vegetarian diet has herded Americans into supermarket aisles featuring soy foods. Yet her January 26, 2000 article, "Doubts Cloud Rosy News on Soy", contains the following alarming statement: "Not one of the 18 scientists interviewed for this column was willing to say that taking isoflavones was risk free." Ms Burros did not enumerate the risks, nor did she mention that the recommended 25 daily grams of soy protein contain enough isoflavones to cause problems in sensitive individuals, but it was evident that the industry had recognized the need to cover itself.

Because the industry is extremely exposed...contingency lawyers will soon discover that the number of potential plaintiffs can be counted in the millions and the pockets are very, very deep. Juries will hear something like the following: "The industry has known for years that soy contains many toxins. At first they told the public that the toxins were removed by processing. When it became apparent that processing could not get rid of them, they claimed that these substances were beneficial. Your government granted a health claim to a substance that is poisonous, and the industry lied to the public to sell more soy."

The "industry" includes merchants, manufacturers, scientists, publicists, bureaucrats, former bond financiers, food writers, vitamin companies and retail stores. Farmers will probably escape because they were duped like the rest of us. But they need to find something else to grow before the soy bubble bursts and the market collapses: grass-fed livestock, designer vegetables...or hemp to make paper for thousands and thousands of legal briefs.

"World's Greatest Healing Miracle of All Time"

wo-time Nobel Prize-winning doctor, Otto Warburg, shocked the world when he revealed that most disease is caused by insufficient levels of oxygen in the body. In fact, his studies showed that if you deprive a cell 35% of its required levels of oxygen for 48 hours, the cell is likely to become cancerous.

That's why cancer is so widespread in our modern society -- because most people suffer from oxygen deprivation. What most people don't know is that lack of oxygen is not only the underlying cause of cancer but is also the cause of most diseases -- from AIDS to yeast infections.

Curing cancer and other diseases, then, is just a matter of getting rid of the cause of the disease. It's as simple as that! But it's human nature to complicate the solution, and turn the simple into something complex.

Current medical research, for instance, is focused on the wrong causes of disease. Some claim that viruses, microbes, germs or harmful bacteria are the cause of cancer and other diseases. Others say it's the toxins in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the substances we consume. And still others say it's our genes or stress that causes us to acquire disease.

While all of these factors do characterize most diseases, or might be precursors or by-products of disease, they do not CAUSE disease. Rather, they bring about a condition in the body (oxygen deficiency) that, in turn, causes disease.

Clearly, the primary physical cause of all diseases is linked in one way or another to oxygen deficiency -- and when the human body is supplied with abundant amounts of oxygen, all cancer cells, viruses, harmful bacteria, toxins, pathogens and disease microorganisms are killed because they cannot survive in a high-oxygen environment.

"One out of every 3 adults in America already has cancer -- but most of them don't know it yet because the cancer is undiagnosed and undetected. According to the American Cancer Society, there's a 41% probability that an individual, male or female, will develop cancer in his or her lifetime (or die from it). Additionally, every human being has cancer cells existing in the body which are just seeking a low-oxygen environment where they can multiply into the full-blown disease ." -- Madison Cavanaugh, The One Minute Cure: The Secret to Healing Virtually All Diseases [Click here to download 1st chapter]


Since an oxygen-rich body is uninhabitable by disease, then the solution for eradicating disease seems simple enough, doesn't it? Just supply the body with an abundant supply of oxygen, right?
Wrong! It's actually not as simple as that. Here's why:

Oxygen Cannot Cure Disease Unless It's Delivered to the Cells and Tissues of the Body

Most humans are NOT able to get proper amounts of oxygen in their cells and tissues -- due partly to poor air quality, poor breathing habits and oxygen-depleting activities. More importantly, the human body is NOT always able to deliver oxygen to the cells and tissues.

In order for oxygen to eradicate disease, it must be delivered not just to the lungs -- and not just to the bloodstream -- but to the cells and tissues of the body. That's why other oxygen-based therapies -- such as oxygenated water, oxygen-rich foods or supplements, or treatments that release oxygen into the bloodstream -- are not always effective in treating disease. While they may supply the body with oxygen, they don't always have an efficient mechanism for breaking the oxygen free from the hemoglobin molecule, which means the oxygen is not delivered to the cells and tissues. Such oxygen-based therapies, therefore, are seldom effective in preventing and curing disease.


The simple therapy you're about to learn, which thousands of people all over the world are calling "the world's greatest healing miracle of all time," is the only one that uses a natural oxygenating substance which ...

...stimulates the movement of
oxygen atoms from the bloodstream to the cells to a dramatically greater degree
than is usually reached by other means.


It does this by increasing oxygen and hemoglobin dissociation, thereby maximizing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells, according to a prominent doctor best known for treating AIDS patients with a holistic protocol which includes oxygen therapy.

The Day I Stumbled Upon the One-Minute Cure
for Healing Virtually All Diseases


'm Madison Cavanaugh, and I?ve been both an aficionado and avid researcher of natural and wholistic approaches to health for the last 30 years -- and have also written articles about them as a contributing editor for natural health magazines and publications. As such, I?ve witnessed an endless parade of ?natural? remedies and therapies go by -- some having merit and others providing little or no health benefit at all.

In 1999, my father died of colon cancer after a long, hard battle that was exceedingly painful for him to bear (and for us, his family, to witness). My grandmother also died of brain cancer not long before that. We saw her writhe in agony during the last few months of her life, the doctors unable to do anything -- even to ease her pain.

Over the last 10 years, I've been saddened by the death of 2 aunts, an uncle, 3 cousins, as well as a close friend who have all died of cancer. At least a dozen more friends and acquaintances have also been diagnosed with cancer in recent years. But the ones that hit closest to home were ...

...my sister, who was stricken with cervical cancer a few years ago -- and my mother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006. Both of them are presently in remission because their respective cancers were surgically removed. But as with most cancer survivors in remission, there's always a constant fear that cancer will return with a vengeance.

When it dawned on me that cancer had struck 3 members of my immediate family -- it was a terrifying realization.

It was then that I began to search desperately for a cancer cure amidst the overwhelming array of so-called "miracle cures" available both online and offline. Little did I know that I was about to stumble upon something much more than I could have ever expected.

I was reading something about oxygen therapy one day when I came across something entirely by accident -- something that was positively astounding.

Since I had known about oxygen therapy for years, and had even written articles about it on a few occasions, I was tempted to ignore the information and think (arrogantly) that I knew all about it already. I?m glad that, instead, I chose to take a closer look.

I remember when I first heard about this aspect of oxygen therapy involving a little-known oxygenating substance, I was awestruck by the compelling reports that it has cured almost every disease known to man, including ?The Big 3? -- AIDS, cancer and heart disease.

I Was Extremely Skeptical ... At First

hose who know me know that I'm not one who readily buys into "miracle cures" -- nor am I easily swayed by other people's opinions or anecdotal reports. I've been a health researcher too long to get "sold" on bogus "snake oil" products masquerading as health breakthroughs.

What's more, I've never believed that there's such a thing as a cure-all or panacea -- and I'm also extremely wary of exaggerated health claims provided by individuals or enterprises that stand to make huge profits from the proliferation of those claims.

But the more I expanded my research into this one-minute cure which involves a natural oxygenating substance, the more I was dumbfounded by the mountains of evidence showing that this therapy has been used in various parts of the world by thousands of health practitioners to heal cancer and every conceivable disease.

It was also encouraging to discover that greedy commercial enterprises are not able to exploit this one-minute cure because the natural substance is dirt cheap -- just 1-1/2 cents a day to administer -- and neither can it be patented by profiteers.

My skepticism turned to conviction when I realized that this one-minute cure is . . .

...the only healing therapy that finally
eliminates the REAL cause of disease!


That's why it has such a far-reaching and broad spectrum effectiveness in curing ALL diseases. And just to set things straight, it's never a substance, a pill or a remedy that cures someone of any disease. It's the human body that cures itself. But ONLY when it is supplied with what it needs (sufficient oxygen) to do what it was designed to do -- that is, maintain health and keep diseases away.

I decided to administer the one-minute therapy on myself, and was amazed that within 2 weeks, it enabled my body to eradicate a chronic, throat inflammation I'd had for 6 months, and which I feared might one day become cancerous. My husband used the therapy as well with spectacular results. His life-long lymphatic condition, characterized by excessive mucous discharge and breathing difficulties, was completely healed in a matter of days -- despite the fact that none of the countless things he had tried before worked. Colds and flu have also become non-existent in our household since we started using the one-minute cure. And another unexpected benefit I got was that my energy levels increased so significantly that I've been able to easily work 12- to 14-hour days whenever I had to -- with lots of energy to spare!

That's when my heart pounded with excitement, realizing that this may be the closest thing to a panacea that I've ever encountered. I began wondering why I hadn?t encountered information about this therapy before, and more importantly, why the whole world didn?t already know about this. I soon realized why.
The Hidden Secret They Don't Want You to Know

n 1986 and 1987, two doctors from Stuttgart and Munich, Germany published case histories of dozens of AIDS patients whom they had cured with a simple therapy involving oxygenation of the body. The patients, who were all in the late-stage of AIDS, reversed their death sentences, were restored to health and lived normal lives again.

A much simpler version of the above-mentioned therapy has been in use outside the United States since the early 1960s. It is a one-minute, self-administered version of the therapy which has since been prescribed by thousands of European doctors, naturopaths and homeopaths (from Germany, Italy, Austria and Russia), as well as health practitioners in Cuba and Mexico. They've used it to cure practically every known disease. [See table above to see a partial list of diseases.]

As far back as 170 years ago, during the reign of Queen Victoria, the people of India (which was then a colony of England) were cured of a variety of illnesses -- from minor ones like colds and flu to serious ones like cholera and malaria -- with this one-minute, self-administered therapy.

This is the simplest, most effective and most inexpensive therapy for providing the body with health-giving oxygen, and maximizing the delivery of oxygen from the bloodstream to the cells. It is also the secret that both the American pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment don't want you to know.

That's because this simple cure for virtually all diseases threatens the livelihood and the trillion-dollar earnings of the pharmaceutical and health care industries -- not to mention the medical centers and physicians that make a great living from providing expensive drugs, complex medical procedures and long hospital stays.

Even though over 6,100 articles attesting to the success of this simple therapy have been published in European scientific literature, this information has been aggressively suppressed in the U.S. via an elaborate scheme of media manipulation, control, infiltration and economic incentives that are all designed to systematically deceive the public into thinking that pharmaceutical drugs are the only solution to disease!

American doctors who employ this therapy to cure a wide variety of "incurable" and life-threatening diseases, or endorse the therapy in any way, come under heavy attack by the medical establishment and are threatened with hefty fines, the revocation of their medical licenses -- and sometimes even face federal prosecution by the FDA.
This Book Could Be Banned -- It Reveals Too Much!

he more I shared the simple therapy with other people and witnessed the life-changing results they got from using it, the more convinced I became that it would be a disservice to humanity to keep this vital information available only to the limited number of people who stumbled upon it by accident (like I did). That?s why I sat down and wrote The One-Minute Cure: The Secret to Healing Virtually All Diseases.

WARNING: The self-administered therapy which is detailed in the book represents the biggest threat to the revenues of the pharmaceutical and medical industries. It's a bigger threat than all the alternative healing therapies, nutritional supplements, natural foods and products combined.

That's why you must learn the one-minute therapy as soon as possible -- and make sure the people you care about also learn it -- before Big Pharma gets wind of it and forces this book out of circulation.

If you think this can't possibly happen, think again. The pharmaceutical industry has assembled a pharma-cartel consisting of an army of lobbyists that influence not only the entire medical industry, but also federal agencies and the U.S. Congress.

The pharma-cartel is so powerful that it has been able to influence the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to seize, destroy or prevent the publication of books that threaten the pharmaceutical industry's profits.

For instance, the FDA actually ordered the burning of books about stevia, a natural herbal sweetener which has been safely used for hundreds of years; does not alter blood sugar levels; and is dirt cheap. Why? Simply because stevia threatened the profits of the pharmaceutical company that manufactured aspartame (artificial sweetener).

You can just imagine how much more vigilant they would be against The One-Minute Cure, which threatens the earnings of the entire industry because it could potentially make most drugs and medical treatments unnecessary!

The pharma-cartel is so powerful that it can even influence Congressional legislation to protect its profits and outlaw anything that threatens its continued profitability.


Case in Point: A recent investigative report aired on the popular CBS program, Sixty Minutes, revealed that ?Congressmen are outnumbered 2 to 1 by lobbyists for the pharmaceutical industry that spends roughly $100 million a year in campaign contributions and lobbying expenses to protect its profits.? Because of this, the pharmaceutical lobby almost never loses a political battle that affects its bottom line. In fact, there have been over 1,500 bills placed in front of the House of Representatives over the last 8 years dealing with pharmaceutical issues ? and the drug companies, almost without exception, have gotten what they wanted." [Excerpt from The One-Minute Cure: The Secret to Healing Virtually All Diseases, page 16]



Mark my word -- they will do everything in their power to suppress the dissemination of the information revealed in The One-Minute Cure: The Secret to Healing Virtually All Diseases. In fact, right at this very moment, a PR campaign is already being waged to discredit and spread malicious untruths about the natural oxygenating substance, which is the main ingredient of this one-minute cure -- even though the substance has been given the GRAS designation -- Generally Recognized as Safe -- by the FDA.

A famous U.S. doctor, who has written 17 nutrition-based books, some of them New York Times bestsellers (see page 105), was threatened with a revocation of his medical license when he attempted to prescribe this therapy in his medical practice! Many medical clinics that have offered the therapy to patients have also been shut down -- and health practitioners have been imprisoned or threatened with jail time for the same reason.

So if you delay, don't be surprised if you return to this website at a later date and find that the book is no longer available. If you don't get it today, there's no telling if you'll get another opportunity to do so -- even when you decide later that you want the book.

I'm doing a lot of research now on the possibility of Hyrdogen Peroxide as a great treatment for cancer. One of the sites I found was a hospital that now treats people with hydrogen peroxide intravenously and with oral doses. It's in Santa Monica and maybe this is the wave of the future if orthodox medicine finally embraces it...

http://curezone.com/diseases/cancer/h2o2.asp

Hydrogen Peroxide

AT HOSPITAL SANTA MONICA we have pioneered in the administration of hydrogen peroxide to treat cancer and other conditions. Our doctors have administered over 40,000 infusions of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) intravenously and have treated thousands of patients with oral doses. Other clinics offering alternative cancer treatment are now using hydrogen peroxide routinely, and some physicians in the U.S. are experimenting with it.

Background

As far back as the early nineteenth century, hydrogen peroxide was widely used in medicine. Many bacterial diseases, including syphilis, responded to H2O2 when no other treatment was effective. In the early twentieth century H2O2 was used to treat several common diseases, such as typhoid fever, cholera, ulcers, asthma, whooping cough, and tuberculosis. (11)

Hydrogen peroxide's ability to kill bacteria in the human body has been well documented (1, 13, 17), and a 1922 medical textbook describes the use of hydrogen peroxide orally, by intravenous injection, and for topical use. (14) However, as the pharmaceutical industry began to develop powerful new (and high-priced) drugs, hydrogen peroxide was increasingly ignored and finally discarded as a treatment.

Early Supporters

Several fascinating personalities have been involved in the struggle to gain recognition in the U.S. of hydrogen peroxide as a therapeutic agent again. Dr. Edward Rosenow (1875-1966), a physician and research scientist associated with the Mayo Clinic for over forty years, discovered that hydrogen peroxide was the safe, effective antimicrobial, antiviral agent he had spent years looking for. Unfortunately, he died without seeing his discovery become widely accepted.

However, his friend Father Wilhelm, a Catholic priest and chemistry teacher, made a commitment to publicize the wonderful benefits of hydrogen peroxide. In the 1970s he presented Rosenow's research to several large pharmaceutical companies, only to get the same response every time: Rosenow's work on hydrogen peroxide was very interesting and potentially important, but hydrogen peroxide was an inexpensive substance that could not be patented and had no commercial value.

Walter Grotz was the next player in the hydrogen peroxide story. After a 1965 auto accident, Grotz developed arthritis that was so bad he could hardly walk. In the winter of 1982, after retiring as postmaster in Delano, Minnesota, his wife convinced him that a warm Caribbean cruise might lessen his arthritic pain. As fate would have it, the chaplain on their cruise ship was Father Wilhelm. When Father Wilhelm learned that Wally (as he is affectionately called) had arthritis, the good Father began preaching his "peroxide sermon."

Wally began taking small amounts of hydrogen peroxide orally, and within a few months his arthritis pain was totally gone. Walter became as committed as Father Wilhelm, and the two of them have now dedicated their lives to spreading the word about the potential health benefits of hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide in Nature

When ozone mixes with moisture in the air, it forms hydrogen peroxide, which comes down in rain and snow. It occurs naturally in fresh fruits and vegetables, some coming from rain and some manufactured during photosynthesis. (6) Hydrogen peroxide is also found in mother's milk, with an especially high concentration in colostrum (the first milk secreted, right after birth).

One researcher states, "The generation of H2O2 in cellular processes seems to be purposeful, and H2O2 cannot be dismissed as a mere undesirable by-product.... The capacity for generation of H202 is now found to be widespread in a variety of organisms and in the organelles of the cells." (12)

The Chemistry of Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a very simple compound, with the chemical I formula H2O2 Essentially it is a molecule of water with an extra atom of oxygen attached, occurring throughout nature and produced by almost every cell in the human body.

Most people are familiar with the common drugstore variety of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide, used for everything from sterilizing a cut to cleaning kitchen countertops. Hydrogen peroxide's sterilizing power comes from its extra oxygen atom. Hydrogen peroxide has a similar oxidizing, or cleansing, power in the body. However, the drugstore variety of H2O2 should never be used internally, because of the chemicals it contains as stabilizers.

Free Radicals

In the 1950s Dr. Denham Harman developed the free-radical theory of aging. Free radicals are molecules that have a chemically active oxygen atom attached to them. Free radicals can damage cells, causing aging and cancer. (15)

At first it seemed that extra oxygen was always damaging, and that the antioxidants were the good guys, responsible for anti-aging protection. Now it appears that not all free-radical reactions are bad. For instance, oxygen helps cleansing enzymes remove toxins, and it is used by the immune system to attack invading bacteria. (4) Also, hydrogen peroxide stimulates natural killer (NK) cells, which attack cancer cells as these attempt to spread throughout the body. (8)

Oxygen and Cancer

Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells have different metabolic properties than normal cells. (16) Healthy cells are aerobic; they use oxygen in most of their chemical reactions. Cancer cells have reverted to a more primitive metabolic process, called fermentation which is anaerobic, or without oxygen. This means that cancer cells thrive in a low-oxygen environment.

The main energy source for both normal and cancer cells is glucose. However, a cancer cell's anaerobic processing of glucose yields only one fifteenth the energy per glucose molecule, compared with normal cellular metabolism. This is why cancer cells have such a huge appetite for sugar (glucose).

Mechanism of Action

One possible way in which intravenous hydrogen peroxide can treat cancer is by releasing pure oxygen in the body. By saturating the cells and tissues with oxygen, hydrogen peroxide promotes healthy, oxygen-based metabolism.

Dr. Charles Farr discovered that intravenous hydrogen peroxide stimulates oxidative enzymes in the body, which help to clear out toxins. (5) He found that intravenous H2O2 infusions almost doubled the metabolic rate. These changes may account in part for the observed benefits from H2O2 infusions.

It is important to note that H2O2 apparently does not produce free-radical lipid peroxidation, but instead stimulates important detoxifying oxidative enzyme systems. This is the direct opposite of what might be expected.

Many people, including myself, initially reacted negatively to the idea of taking hydrogen peroxide internally. How could something that produces free radicals possibly have a therapeutic benefit? However, the damage from free radicals comes from chronic exposure to free-radical oxygen, which is part of more complex molecules. The processes of oxygenation and stimulation of the oxidative enzymes may account for the positive effects of hydrogen peroxide that have been observed.

Clinical Studies

In the 1950s Dr. Reginald Holman tested H2O2 on rats implanted with Walker 256 adenocarcinoma tumors. Their drinking water was replaced by a dilute solution of hydrogen peroxide. The optimal concentration was reported to be 0.45 percent, and complete disappearance of the tumors was reported to exist from fifteen to sixty days. (9)

In 1982 Winifred Wirth reported on the effective use of oral H2O2 in the treatment of laboratory mice infected with Ehrlich carcinoma. Effectiveness was judged by the decrease in mortality and the delayed onset of palpable tumor incidence. (18)

Hydrogen Peroxide and Radiation

It has been shown that there is a direct relationship between the oxygen content in tumor cells during radiation therapy and the effectiveness of the treatment. (10) Higher levels of oxygen produce better results. Hyperbaric oxygen chambers have been used to achieve better tumor oxygenation during radiation therapy. (2, 3) However, biological and physiological problems associated with the administration of oxygen at increased pressures plus the expense of the hyperbaric chambers themselves make this method of oxygenation somewhat impractical.

With the above difficulties in mind, a group of physicians decided to try using intra-arterial hydrogen peroxide as a source of oxygen along with radiation therapy in the treatment of 190 g individuals with advanced cancer. (1) The main criterion for the selection of cases for this study was that their tumors were either so very advanced or metastatic that they were considered poor candidates for any form of conventional therapy. Fewer than 10 percent of the subjects were expected to survive more than one year.

The individuals in this study showed the following overall survival for the five years of the study:
year one = 77 percent;
year two = 62 percent;
year three = 46 percent;
year four = 36 percent; and
year five =28 percent.

Patients with cancers of the head and neck, cervix, and bladder seemed to respond much better than would be expected under standard therapeutic treatment. The authors of this study point out that their preliminary results suggest that the use of intra-arterial hydrogen peroxide can improve the effectiveness of standard radiation therapy for some types of malignancies.

Research and Information

The International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation is an organization of physicians and scientists who are carrying out research on the effects of oxygen therapy or studying its clinical application. The foundation sponsors the annual International Conference on Bio-Oxidative Medicine and also produces the IBOM Newsletter. The studies presented at the IBOM conferences have done much to increase the credibility of such oxidative therapies as those using H2O2 and ozone O3. Information about the IBOM Foundation can be found in the appendix.

In September 1984 Walter Grotz began publishing the ECHO Newsletter; this newsletter, written for the lay reader, presents information on hydrogen peroxide's many applications.

Summary

The following comments by Dr. Charles Farr are an appropriate summary for this section.

From the 2,500 or more references on hydrogen peroxide we have collected and reviewed, we have come to appreciate this physiological product as an extremely important molecule in metabolism. Hydrogen peroxide is produced by all cells of the body for many different physiological reasons. The granulocytes produce H2O2 as a first line of defense against bacteria, yeast, virus, parasites, and most fungi. It is involved in any metabolic pathway which utilizes the many different types of oxidase enzymes. Hydrogen peroxide is involved in protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism, immunity, vitamin and mineral metabolism or any other system you might wish to explore.

Our studies demonstrate a positive metabolic effect to intravenous infusion of H2O2. Its ability to oxidize almost any physiological substance, in addition to producing increased tissue and cellular oxygen tensions, has proven it to have therapeutic value. (5)

Hydrogen peroxide is one of those substances that cries out for needed changes in FDA policy. Because it is a cheap, un-patentable chemical, no company is willing to invest the time and money needed to gain FDA approval. H2O2 therapy is not illegal in the U.S., but it remains unapproved by the AMA and the FDA.

There is a growing number of physicians who are administering hydrogen peroxide infusions in the United States. However, there are also many cases where doctors have been confronted by medical boards and have been forced to spend considerable time and money defending themselves. Some have had their licenses revoked.

Hydrogen peroxide is one of the most widely researched and documented of all the alternative cancer therapies, with over five thousand studies published on its therapeutic effects. Yet it is still not approved by the FDA for use in treating cancer, arthritis, or other diseases.

Side Effects and Toxicity of H2O2

Hydrogen peroxide infusions are the foundation of all therapies offered at Hospital Santa Monica. In the past six years, the medical staff at HSM has administered over 30,000 H2O2 infusions,. without a single seriously negative reaction.

A review of the literature shows that to date over fifty papers have been published reporting the use of intra-arterial and intravenous infusions of hydrogen peroxide, representing hundreds of infusions, safely administered without serious side effects.

The Many Benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide

By Dr. David G. Williams

http://educate-yourself.org/cancer/benefitsofhydrogenperozide17jul03.shtml
Posted July 17, 2003

(Original title: Hydrogen Peroxide - Curse or Cure?)

When it comes to hydrogen peroxide therapy there seems to be only two points of view. Supporters consider it one of the greatest healing miracles of all time. Those opposed feel its ingestion is exceptionally dangerous, and only the foolhardy could think of engaging in such behavior. Before either condemning or endorsing hydrogen peroxide, let's take a real close look at what we're dealing with.

If any substance is interesting, it's hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide should really be called hydrogen dioxide. Its chemical formula is H2O2. It contains one more atom of oxygen that does water (H20). By now everyone's aware of the ozone layer that surrounds the earth. Ozone consists of three atoms of oxygen (03). This protective layer of ozone is created when ultraviolet light from the sun splits an atmospheric oxygen molecule (02) into two single, unstable oxygen atoms. These single molecules combine with others to form ozone (03). Ozone isn't very stable. In fact, it will quickly give up that extra atom of oxygen to falling rainwater to form hydrogen peroxide (H202). (Bear with me: all this chemistry mumbo jumbo I'm going through actually will help you understand the importance of hydrogen peroxide.)

Helps Plants
It is this hydrogen peroxide in rainwater that makes it so much more effective than tap water when given to plants. With the increased levels of atmospheric pollution, however, greater amounts of H202 react with air-borne toxins and never reach the ground. To compensate for this, many farmers have been increasing crop yields by spraying them with diluted hydrogen peroxide (5 to 16 ounces of 35% mixed with 20 gallons of water per acre). You can achieve the same beneficial effect with your house plants by adding 1 ounce of 3% hydrogen peroxide (or 16 drops of 35% solution) to every quart of water you give your plants. (It can also be made into an excellent safe insecticide. Simply spray your plants with 8 ounces of 3% peroxide mixed with 8 ounces of white sugar and one gallon of water.)

Hydrogen peroxide is odorless and colorless, but not tasteless. When stored under the proper conditions, it is a very stable compound. When kept in the absence of light and contaminants, it dismutates (breaks down) very slowly at the rate of about 10% a year. (This can be slowed even further by storing the liquid in the freezer.) It boils at 152 degrees C and freezes at minus 2 degrees C.

When exposed to other compounds hydrogen peroxide dismutates readily. The extra oxygen atom is released leaving H20 (water). In nature oxygen (02) consists of two atoms--a very stable combination. A single atom of oxygen, however, is very reactive and is referred to as a free radical. Over the past several years, we've continually read that these free radicals are responsible for all types of ailments and even premature aging. What many writers seem to forget, however, is that our bodies create and use free radicals to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In fact, the cells responsible for fighting infection and foreign invaders in the body (your white blood cells) make hydrogen peroxide and use it to oxidize any offending culprits. The intense bubbling you see when hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with a bacteria-laden cut or wound is the oxygen being released and bacteria being destroyed. The ability of our cells to produce hydrogen peroxide is essential for life. H202 is not some undesirable by-product or toxin, but instead a basic requirement for good health.

Newer research indicates we need hydrogen peroxide for a multitude of other chemical reactions that take place throughout the body. For example, we now know that vitamin C helps fight infections by producing hydrogen peroxide, which in turn stimulates the production of prostaglandins. Also lactobacillus found in the colon and vagina produce hydrogen peroxide. This destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, preventing colon disease, vaginitis, bladder infections and a host of other common ailments. (Infect Dis News Aug.8,91:5). When lactobacillus in the colon or vaginal tract have been overrun with harmful viruses, yeast, or bacteria, an effective douche or enema solution can be made using 3 tablespoons of 3% H202 in 1 quart of distilled water. Keep in mind, however, that a good bacterial flora must always be re-established in theses areas to achieve lasting results.

Aerobic versus Anerobic
While we are discussing enemas and douches, there is another misconception about H202 I need to address. The friendly bacteria in the colon and vagina are aerobic. In other words, they flourish in high oxygen environments and thrive in the presence of oxygen rich H202. On the other hand, most strains of harmful bacteria (and cancer cells) are anaerobic and cannot survive in the presence of oxygen or H202. We can agree that hydrogen peroxide produced within individual body cells is essential for life. And no one doubts its effectiveness when it comes to treating infections topically. The controversy deals with ingesting the substance orally or introducing it into the body intravenously. The dispute has been going on for decades, and considering the attitude of our medical community, it will continue for many more decades to come.

I'll admit I was skeptical when I first learned about using H202 orally or intravenously. This healthy dose of skepticism, however, lead to a great deal of investigation, clinical work and experimentation. And while I realize a large majority of readers will probably never be convinced that H202 is a safe and effective compound, I am. Hydrogen peroxide is safe, readily available and dirt cheap. And best of all, it works! No one yet fully understands the complete workings of hydrogen peroxide. We do know that it is loaded with oxygen. (A pint of the food-grade 35% solution contains the equivalent of 130 pints of oxygen. A pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide found at the local drugstore contains 10 pints of oxygen. And a pint of the 6% solution used to bleach hair contains 20 pints of oxygen.) We also know that when H202 is taken into the body (orally or intravenously) the oxygen content of the blood and body tissues increases dramatically. Early researchers felt these increases were simply due to the extra oxygen molecule being released. This doesn't however, appear to be the case.

Only very diluted amounts of H202 are ever introduced into the body. The small amount of oxygen present couldn't be solely responsible for the dramatic changes that take place. Dr. Charles Farr, a strong proponent of intravenous use, has discovered another possible answer. Dr. Farr has shown that hydrogen peroxide stimulates enzyme systems throughout the body. This triggers an increase in the metabolic rate, causes small arteries to dilate and increase blood flow, enhances the body's distribution and consumption of oxygen and raises body temperature (Proceedings of the International Conference on Bio-Oxidative Medicine 1989, 1990, 1991).

Father Richard Willhelm
We are just beginning to learn exactly how H202 works. It was reported to work as far back as 1920. The English medical journal, Lancet, then reported that intravenous infusion was used successfully to treat pneumonia in the epidemic following World War I. In the 1940's Father Richard Willhelm, the pioneer in promoting peroxide use, reported on the compound being used extensively to treat everything from bacterial-related mental illness to skin disease and polio. Father Willhelm is the founder of "Educational Concern for Hydrogen Peroxide" (ECHO, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public on the safe use and therapeutic benefits of hydrogen peroxide.) Much of the interest in hydrogen peroxide waned in the 1940's when prescription medications came on the scene. Since that time there has been little economic interest in funding peroxide research. After all, it is dirt cheap and non-patentable. Even still, in the last 25 years, over 7,700 articles relating to hydrogen peroxide have been written in the standard medical journals. Thousands more, involving its therapeutic use, have appeared in alternative health publications. The number of conditions helped by hydrogen peroxide is astounding. The reported dangers and side effects are few and often conflicting.

Emphysema
Let's look at several conditions that seem to respond especially well to H202 therapy. First, keep in mind that there are two methods of administering the peroxide-1) orally and 2) intravenously. While most conditions respond remarkably to oral ingestion, emphysema is one condition in which intravenous infusion can be a godsend. Emphysema involves destruction of the alveoli (the small air sacs in the lungs). Although chemical fumes and other irritants can cause the destruction, it is most often the result of smoking. As the disease progresses, the patient finds it more and more difficult to breathe. A wheel chair and supplemental oxygen become necessary as the disease progresses. Lack of adequate oxygen reaching the tissues forces the heart to pump more forcefully. This leads to high blood pressure, enlargement of the heart itself and eventually heart failure. Conventional medicine offers little help for emphysema. There is no cure. The best that can be hoped for is symptomatic relief and the prevention of any serious complications that might result in death. H202 therapy can offer more. Using 1 ounce of 35% peroxide per 1 gallon of non-chlorinated water in a vaporizer improves nighttime breathing tremendously. But intravenous infusion holds the real key to relief. It has the ability to cleanse the inner lining of the lungs and restore the ability to breathe.

We continue to hear the same story from Dr. Farr and others who use intravenous infusion for emphysema and congestive lung problems. Within minutes oxygen from hydrogen peroxide begins to bubble up between the membrane lining the lungs sacs and the accumulated mucus. (Dr. Farr refers to this as the "Alka-Seltzer effect.") The patient begins to cough and expel the material that has accumulated in the lungs. The amount of bubbling, coughing, and cleansing can be regulated by simply turning the H202 on and off. As the peroxide clears the lung surface and destroys the bacterial infections, the patient regains the ability to breath more normally. We continue to receive reports from patients for whom the technique has improved breathing so much that a wheelchair and supplemental oxygen are no longer needed. If you would like to find a doctor in your area trained in the use of intravenous H202 infusion, contact the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation (IBOM), P.O. Box 13205, Oklahoma City, OK 73113 at (405) 478-4266. They can provide names and addresses of doctors using the procedure in your area.

If emphysema were the only ailment successfully treated with H202 therapy, it would still rank as one of the top health discoveries of all time. Fortunately, H202 works wonders on a multitude of health problems. It does so by increasing tissue oxygen levels. A closer look at how we have decreased the availability of external and internal oxygen, will show you just how important this can be. If you were not too occupied with trying to hide dissection specimens in the other student's desks, you might remember from elementary science courses that our atmosphere contains about 20% oxygen. That is under ideal circumstances. It has recently been reported that in many of our more polluted cities, there levels have dropped to around 10%! (I have already mentioned how less hydrogen peroxide-containing rain is reaching the earth's surface. With increased pollution it is reacting with airborne toxins before it even reaches the ground.) And everyone, by now, knows the oxygen-generating rain forests are being destroyed worldwide, which further reduces available oxygen. Internal oxygen availability is also under attack.

Chlorination of drinking water removes oxygen. Cooking and over-processing of our foods lowers their oxygen content. Unrestrained antibiotic use destroys beneficial oxygen-creating bacteria in the intestinal tract. Dr. Johanna Budwig of Germany has shown that for proper cellular utilization of oxygen to take place, our diets must contain adequate amounts of unsaturated fatty acids. Unfortunately, the oils rich in these fatty acids have become less and less popular with the food industry. Their very nature makes them more biologically active, which requires more careful processing and gives them a shorter shelf-life. Rather than deal with these challenges, the food industry has turned to the use of synthetic fats and dangerous processes like hydrogenation.

It's obvious that our oxygen needs are not being met. Several of the most common ailments now affecting our population are directly related to oxygen starvation. Asthma, emphysema, and lung disease are on the rise, especially in the polluted metropolitan areas. Cases of constipation, diarrhea, intestinal parasites and bowel cancer are all on the upswing. Periodontal disease is endemic in the adult population of this country. Cancer of all forms continues to increase. Immune system disorders are sweeping the globe. Chronic fatigue, "Yuppie Flu" and hundreds of other strange viral diseases have begun to surface. Ironically, many of the new "miracle" drugs and nutritional supplements used to treat these conditions work by increasing cellular oxygen (oftentimes through H202 formation). For example, the miracle nutrient, Coenzyme Q10, helps regulate intercellular oxidation. Organic germanium, which received considerable publicity not too long ago, also increases oxygen levels at the cellular level. And even substances like niacin and vitamin E promote tissue oxidation through their dilation of blood vessels.

Hydrogen peroxide is only one of the many components that help regulate the amount of oxygen getting to your cells. Its presence is vital for many other functions as well. It is required for the production of thyroid hormone and sexual hormones. (Mol Cell Endocrinol 86;46(2): 149-154) (Steroids 82;40(5):5690579). It stimulates the production of interferon (J Immunol 85;134(4):24492455). It dilates blood vessels in the heart and brain (Am J Physiol 86;250 (5 pt 2): H815-821 and (2 pt 2):H157-162). It improves glucose utilization in diabetics (Proceedings of the IBOM Conference 1989, 1990, 1991). The closer you look at hydrogen peroxide, the less surprising it becomes that it can help such a wide variety of conditions.

The following is only a partial listing of conditions in which H202 therapy has been used successfully. (Many of these conditions are serious, if not life-threatening. As always, I would highly recommend seeking the advice and guidance of a doctor experienced in the use of these techniques.)

Grades of Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is available in various strengths and grades.

A) 3.5% Pharmaceutical Grade: This is the grade sold at your local drugstore or supermarket. This product is not recommended for internal use. It contains an assortment of stabilizers which shouldn't be ingested. Various stabilizers include: acetanilide, phenol, sodium stanate and tertrasodium phosphate.

  6% Beautician Grade: This is used in beauty shops to color hair and is not recommended for internal use.

C) 30% Reagent Grade: This is used for various scientific experimentation and also contains stabilizers. It is also not for internal use.

D) 30% to 32% Electronic Grade: This is used to clean electronic parts and not for internal use.

E) 35% Technical Grade: This is a more concentrated product than the Reagent Grade and differs slightly in that phosphorus is added to help neutralize any chlorine from the water used to dilute it.

F) 35% Food Grade: This is used in the production of foods like cheese, eggs, and whey-containing products. It is also sprayed on the foil lining of aseptic packages containing fruit juices and milk products. THIS IS THE ONLY GRADE RECOMMENDED FOR INTERNAL USE. It is available in pints, quarts, gallons or even drums. Various suppliers are mentioned later in this article.

G) 90%: This is used as an oxygen source for rocket fuel.

Only 35% Food Grade hydrogen peroxide is recommended for internal use. At this concentration, however, hydrogen peroxide is a very strong oxidizer and if not diluted, it can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. Any concentrations over 10% can cause neurological reactions and damage to the upper gastrointestinal tract. There have been two known fatalities in children who ingested 27% and 40% concentrations of H202. Recently, a 26 month old female swallowed one mouthful of 35% H202. She immediately began vomiting, followed by fainting and respiratory arrest. Fortunately, she was under emergency room care and although she experienced erosion and bleeding of the stomach and esophagus, she survived the incident. When she was re-examined 12 days later, the areas involved had healed (J Toxicol Clin Toxicol 90;28(1):95-100).

35% Food Grade H202 must be

1) handled carefully (direct contact will burn the skin--immediate flushing with water is recommended).

2) diluted properly before use. 3) stored safely and properly (after making a dilution the remainder should be stored tightly sealed in the freezer).

One of the most convenient methods of dispensing 35% H202 is from a small glass eye dropper bottle. These can be purchased at your local drugstore. Fill this with the 35% H202 and store the larger container in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator until more is needed. Store the eye dropper bottle in the refrigerator. The generally recommended dosage is outlined in the chart below. The drops are mixed with either 6 to 8 ounces of distilled water, juice, milk or even aloe vera juice or gel. (Don't use chlorinated tap water to dilute the peroxide!)

Suggested Protocol
The program outlined is only a suggestion, but it is based on years of experience, and reports from thousands of users. Those who choose to go at a slower pace can expect to progress more slowly, but that certainly is an option. The program is not carved in stone and keep in mind that it can be adapted to fit individual needs. Individuals who have had transplants should not undertake an H202 program. H202 stimulates the immune system and could possibly cause a rejection of the organ.

Day # -Number of Drops/ Times Per Day
1 - 3 / 3
2 - 4 / 3
3 - 5 / 3
4 - 6 / 3
5 - 7 / 3
6 - 8 / 3
7 - 9 / 3
8 - 10 / 3
9 - 12 / 3
10 - 14 / 3
11 - 16 / 3
12 - 18 / 3
13 - 20 / 3
14 - 22 / 3
15 - 24 / 3
16 - 25 / 3

Maintenance Dosage
In most situations after the above 21 day program, the amount of H202 can be tapered off gradually as follows:
25 drops once every other day for 1 week
25 drops once every third day for 2 weeks
25 drops once every fourth day for 3 weeks

This can then be reduced to between 5 and 15 drops per week based on how one feels. Those with more serious problems will often benefit from staying on 25 drops three times a day for one to three weeks, then tapering down to 25 drops two times daily until the problem is resolved (possibly as long as six months). Those with chronic systemic Candidiasis may need to start with 1 drop three times a day, then 2 drops three times a day before starting the above schedule. It is important that H202 be taken on an empty stomach. This is best accomplished by taking it either one hour before meals or three hours after meals. If there is food in the stomach, the reaction of H202 on any bacteria present may cause excess foaming, indigestion, and possibly even vomiting. Additionally, some animal research indicates that when H202 given orally combines with iron and small amounts of vitamin C in the stomach, hydroxyl radicals are created (J Inorg Biochem 89;35(1):55-69). The bleach-like aftertaste of H202 can be lessened by chewing one of the sugar-free cinnamon gums. Some individuals taking H202 immediately before bedtime have a difficult time getting to sleep. This is probably due to a sense of alertness triggered by an increase of oxygen at the cellular level. The oral dosage schedule is basically the same for all conditions. There are several points to keep in mind, however.

Some individuals may experience upset stomach. If this occurs it is recommended that one not stop the program, but rather remain at the current dosage level or reduce it to the previous level until the problem stops. (Some patients have been able to solve the nausea problem by taking three or four lecithin capsules at the same time they take the H202.) During the program it's not uncommon to experience what is known as a healing crisis. As dead bacteria and toxins are released from your body it may temporarily exceed your capacity to eliminate them quickly enough. In some individuals this overload may cause fatigue, diarrhea, headaches, skin eruptions, cold or flu-like symptoms, and/or nausea. One should not discontinue using the peroxide to stop this cleansing. By continuing the program, toxins will clear the body sooner and this healing crisis will pass rather quickly.

If you are not already taking vitamin E and an acidophilus product, I recommend starting them before going on H202. Vitamin E can make more efficient use of any oxygen available and acidophilus will help re-establish the beneficial bacterial flora in the lower bowel and also help in the internal production of hydrogen peroxide.


Making and Using 3% Solutions of H202
A 3.5% solution can be made quite easily by first pouring 1 ounce of 35% H202 into a pint jar. To this add 11 ounces of distilled water. This will make 12 ounces of 3.5% H202. 3.5% H202 has a variety of medicinal uses.

1. Three tablespoons mixed with a quart of non-chlorinated water makes a good enema or douche formula.
2. It can be used full strength as a mouthwash or mixed with baking soda for toothpaste.
3. It can be used full strength as a foot bath for athlete's foot. (Diabetics have found relief from circulation problems by soaking their feet in 1 pint of 3% peroxide mixed with 1 gallon of warm, non-chlorinated water for 30 minutes nightly.)
4. A tablespoon added to 1 cup of non-chlorinated water can be used as a nasal spray. Depending on the degree of sinus involvement, one will have to adjust the amount of peroxide used. I have seen some who can use it at the full 3% strength and others who had difficulty with using a few drops and mixed with a cup of water.
5. 3.5% H202 can be added to pets drinking water at the rate of 1 ounce per quart of non-chlorinated water. Sick cattle reportedly benefit from 1 pint (of 3%) to each 5 gallons of water. (Chickens and cows have remained healthy by using 8 ounces of 35% H202 per 1,000 gallons of drinking water.)

Additional Information
There are two sources you should contact if you have an interest in using hydrogen peroxide therapy. The first, ECHO, was founded by Father Richard Willhelm and is run by Walter Grotz. Their information packet includes a sample newsletter, a list of H202 distributors and several other items. The packet is being made available to interested ALTERNATIVES readers for only $3. Their address is

ECHO Box 126
Delano, MN 55328

If you have an interest in contacting doctors who provide intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy you can write to the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation (IBOM) at the address listed earlier in this article. You should also be aware that there are now numerous hydrogen peroxide products on the market. Some are simply peroxide that has been flavored and mixed with sea minerals, aloe vera, inner tree bark or other ingredients to make the peroxide more palatable (Superoxy, Oxy Toddy, etc.).

Others claim to have developed products that deliver more oxygen than does simple hydrogen peroxide (Aerox, Anti-Oxid-10, Di-Oxychloride, Aerobic 07, Aqua Pure, etc.). Basically you'll end up paying a small fortune and at best achieving the same results you can get for pennies by using hydrogen peroxide.

Conclusion
Hydrogen peroxide is one of the few simple miracle substances still available to the public. Its safety and multiple uses ranks it right up there with DMSO. If you've never used either of these compounds you are overlooking two of the most powerful healing tools ever discovered. Most of us started on hydrogen peroxide shortly after birth. Not only does mother's milk contain high amounts of H202, the amount contained in the first milk (colostrum) is even higher. This seems only reasonable now that we know one of its main functions is to activate and stimulate the immune system. Although I am a strong supporter of H202 therapy, I am not suggesting that everyone needs to be using it. There are probably some individuals whose health and well-being would not be enhanced with hydrogen peroxide. But there are also millions of others who are suffering needlessly because they either do not know about hydrogen peroxide or they have been misinformed about its use.

Home Oxygen Therapy - A Review of the One Minute Cure

Posted by admin on Jan 29, 2009

STOP! - Before reading any further, find out more about Ingested Oxygen Therapy. An informed decision is always a better one!

The first thing to say about "The One Minute Cure: The Secret to Healing Virtually All Diseases" is that in the Authors own words, "the information herein (meaning the Ebook) is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a doctor or qualified health care professional". Although, doctors and medical practitioners throughout Europe have been using ingested Oxygen Therapy for many years, in the US, it is still relatively unknown - the reasons of which are made clear throughout the book. Please take heed of the above warning. Ingested Oxygen therapy can be dangerous without due consideration for the correct doses of hydrogen peroxide etc, or consideration of current medical conditions. Indeed, the whole subject concerning food grade hydrogen peroxide for curing disease is fraught with controversy!

Find out more here

The book written by Madison Cavanaugh is packed with information regarding ingested oxygen therapy (hydrogen peroxide in particular) and very well written. It’s one of the few books I’ve found that meet the expectations of the sales letter.

The introduction starts out with an overview of current medical practice and how it has evolved into an overcomplicated system of healing. We learn something of why it’s currently not working and how in terms of percentage there are more sick people in the US than ever before. As the author rightly states, medicine in the west is more to do with treating illness than actually preventing it in the first place. The fact that we are focused on illness rather than wellness, basically promotes profit driven treatment. Unfortunately, treatment based on profit is not always in the best interests of the patient - should we relinquish total control of our health to doctors, medical establishments or the pharmaceutical industry?

The book then covers the importance of oxygen and how hyperbaric (high pressure) oxygen therapy is used to treat many health conditions including emphysema, pneumonia and carbon monoxide poisoning. The author discusses a theory that nearly all disease is related oxygen deficiency and how oxygen as a form of treatment for other diseases has largely been overlooked.

Chapter 1 starts out by stating that the oxygen therapy presented within does not actually "cure" disease, but rather creates an environment where disease can’t exist. The body therefore heals itself by creating a disease free environment.


There follows a really good critique on the big business of medicine and disease. How the pharmaceutical industry has more to gain by manufacturing drugs that relieve the symptoms of disease and less to do with curing the disease. Also, how so called fictitious diseases have been invented to further capitalize on what really amounts to poor nutrition in the modern diet! The huge market for nutritional products also comes under the hammer with a lot of examples of unsubstantiated health claims and hoaxes that have not only taken money from the publics pocket but in some cases resulted in negative impacts on their health.

The author then goes on to explain how he came across the form of oxygen therapy outlined in the book and why for something that had been around for such a long time, it is not more commonly practiced? The reasons why are clearly explained and are again mainly aimed at the profit driven pharmaceutical industry. But the idea that this form of oxygen therapy, ingested in the form of diluted hydrogen peroxide or otherwise, is very cheap and not motivated by profit - I think is a bit misleading or a clever form of misdirection! The therapy itself may of course be very cheap but being skeptical I can’t help thinking that the book itself is sold for a profit - placing a bias on what it has to say!

Chapter 2 talks about the most feared diseases in America (Cancer etc)and how the type of oxygen therapy detailed has effectively cured people suffering from these diseases. Personally, I would appreciate more evidence in this section because the statements made are highly controversial. However, some doctors are referenced by name to have had some success with oxygen therapy.

After this we are told what oxygen therapy is and a little about its history. It is interesting to note, the authors claim that a good breathing regime is not a good substitution for the oxygen therapy recommended. Elsewhere I have read that too much oxygen is not good for you and the body limits concentrations of oxygen in the major organs. Only 15% of the oxygen you inhale is absorbed by the blood. It might be that in polluted cities not enough oxygen is absorbed to maintain a healthy body although it appears that even over long periods of time there has been little change in the levels of oxygen in the atmosphere. Perhaps we are somehow living an oxygen-depleting lifestyle. I would argue that we’ve also lost the ability to breathe correctly and that oxygen therapy is perhaps one way of restoring the balance.


Following the history of oxygen therapy there is a little bit about why it works so well. This is backed up by scientific evidence from around the world including research done by a Nobel prize winner and work carried out by some eminent doctors.

Chapter 3 talks about the use of oxygen therapy and how it can be simply administered at home. It tells why oxygen therapy maximises delivery of oxygen to the cells to cure and prevent disease and goes on to cite yet more evidence from around the world where oxygen therapy has been successfully used - a list of treated diseases is given. Then follows, an interesting section on how oxygen therapy has helped people with many of the ailments we commonly associate with modern living.

The chapter continues with what the doctors are saying, all good, obviously!

In Chapter 4 we learn about the correct dosage to use and the different forms of application. It’s a chapter well worth reading simply because of the safety aspects and other things you might expect when undergoing oxygen therapy treatment.

Other applications of the compound used in this form of oxygen therapy are discussed. It is interesting to note how both good and bad bacteria are effected by the treatment.

Chapter 5 shows how the compound used in this form of oxygen therapy is a naturally occurring substance. An interesting point is made about the spring water found in the Hunza area of the Himalayas. The spring water contains high levels of the active compound. My interest is peaked because the people in this area are known to live much longer than average.

Have our bodies become accustomed to living with less oxygen? This is the question raised next. I’m not sure I agree with the argument that oxygen is depleted because of rainforest destruction. As stated above the oxygen levels of our atmosphere have remained unchanged for many a century. Of course, more CO2 means less oxygen but even over the last 40 years the difference is negligible. That said, there are other factors which probably effect our own levels of oxygen - like the food we eat, how much we eat, our habits, the water we drink and pollution etc.

Chapter 6 is concerned with the controversy surrounding oxygen therapy, particularly the arguments that on the surface appear to contradict a lot of mainstream theory. Comparisons are made with homeopathic treatments that also make use of small doses of what otherwise would be dangerous chemicals.

The econonomic impact of a widespread use of oxygen therapy is then discussed. Basically, we don’t hear about treatments like oxygen therapy because there is no money to be made. The cost of such treatment can be as little as one and a half cents a day!

There follows an appendix that discusses the impact stress has on the treatment and that about wraps it up.

Reading between the lines it would seem that oxygen therapy has had a raw deal as far as the medical establishment is concerned. This might be because there has been very little research in the area but as the author suggests, it could also be that widespread uptake would generate very little profit. This is especially true when you consider the treatment is targeting the whole body and not just a part. This to me is extremely important and one of the reasons oxygen therapy appeals. All treatment should be none invasive. It should not attack everything to kill one thing. Why cure something if we are going to cause further problems down the line. An interesting fact is that people who are cured of a big killer like cancer using conventional drugs are only expected to live on average a further nine and a half years instead of the 30 to 40 one would expect! Why is this? Because, something comes along and takes its place. To add serious years to your life you have to lower your risk to all diseases and you can’t do this by loading your body with drugs that not only kill good cells, as in cancer treatments, but destroy your immune system

It seems as if the people who are "dedicated to our health" in this country are more dedicated to the almighty dollar! From all that I have read, heard and seen, this country is a profit orientated society and any big business, like the health industry, especially in this country, will do everything in its power to keep the profits coming in. Whether this means keeping a fatal disease "alive" instead of curing it, it matters not just as long as the bottom line is met. In other words, the American Cancer Society and the FDA are in business to keep the money rolling in.

To the patients suffering from these horrific diseases, it would probably be better if they moved to a different country that was more motivated in the actual curing process rather than just treating the symptoms.

I know as a fact from the case of stevia, a naturally grown sweetener that the FDA has staged a vicious campaign against, that the government-run and lobby supported programs that are supposed to "protect the consumer" are more for protecting Big Pharma and other super rich industries. The consumer is only viewed as the cash cow, the money machine that has to be continuously "hoodwinked" or fooled by the propaganda coming out from the government health agencies, doctors and pharmaceutical companies. Everyone loses, except the patients, when actual cures are brought to the attention of the public, especially when they are very inexpensive and much less intrusive than the barbaric surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation used by the conventional health industry.

Stevia, which has proven health benefits such as preventing tooth decay and not having any of the harmful effects of sugar or heavily promoted sugar substitutes, has been used in other countries for many years. In Europe, Japan and China, stevia is now used in most of sugar free soft drinks. In the United States, thanks to the ban imposed by the FDA, stevia is frowned upon almost as much as marijuana.

The FDA, Big Pharm and the giant cancer industry does not want the people to know about alternative treatments for cancer that have a much better cure rate that the brutal methods to "treat cancer" used here in the United States. Mere mention of the use of hydrogen peroxide therapy or ozone therapy will produce a backlash of warnings issued by the orthodox health industry about how "dangerous" it is and so-called examples of damage and even death caused by using such an approach. However, they will not reveal that the success rate for the surgery-radiation-chemo therapies is around 3% at best, while alternative therapies, such as hydrogen peroxide therapy or ozone therapy are in the 90% range. And those therapies won't destroy healthy cells or impair the immune system.

Here's some more thoughts about the hydrogen peroxide therapy method...

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) Therapy

- By Dr. David G. Williams

(Original title: Hydrogen Peroxide - Curse or Cure?)


When it comes to hydrogen peroxide therapy there seems to be only two points of view. Supporters consider it one of the greatest healing miracles of all time. Those opposed feel its ingestion is exceptionally dangerous, and only the foolhardy could think of engaging in such behavior. Before either condemning or endorsing hydrogen peroxide, let's take a real close look at what we're dealing with.

If any substance is interesting, it's hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide should really be called hydrogen dioxide. Its chemical formula is H2O2. It contains one more atom of oxygen that does water (H20). By now everyone's aware of the ozone layer that surrounds the earth. Ozone consists of three atoms of oxygen (03). This protective layer of ozone is created when ultraviolet light from the sun splits an atmospheric oxygen molecule (02) into two single, unstable oxygen atoms. These single molecules combine with others to form ozone (03). Ozone isn't very stable. In fact, it will quickly give up that extra atom of oxygen to falling rainwater to form hydrogen peroxide (H202). (Bear with me: all this chemistry mumbo jumbo I'm going through actually will help you understand the importance of hydrogen peroxide.)

Helps Plants

It is this hydrogen peroxide in rainwater that makes it so much more effective than tap water when given to plants. With the increased levels of atmospheric pollution, however, greater amounts of H202 react with air-borne toxins and never reach the ground. To compensate for this, many farmers have been increasing crop yields by spraying them with diluted hydrogen peroxide (5 to 16 ounces of 35% mixed with 20 gallons of water per acre). You can achieve the same beneficial effect with your house plants by adding 1 ounce of 3% hydrogen peroxide (or 16 drops of 35% solution) to every quart of water you give your plants. (It can also be made into an excellent safe insecticide. Simply spray your plants with 8 ounces of 3% peroxide mixed with 8 ounces of white sugar and one gallon of water.)

Hydrogen peroxide is odorless and colorless, but not tasteless. When stored under the proper conditions, it is a very stable compound. When kept in the absence of light and contaminants, it dismutates (breaks down) very slowly at the rate of about 10% a year. (This can be slowed even further by storing the liquid in the freezer.) It boils at 152 degrees C and freezes at minus 2 degrees C.

When exposed to other compounds hydrogen peroxide dismutates readily. The extra oxygen atom is released leaving H20 (water). In nature oxygen (02) consists of two atoms--a very stable combination. A single atom of oxygen, however, is very reactive and is referred to as a free radical. Over the past several years, we've continually read that these free radicals are responsible for all types of ailments and even premature aging. What many writers seem to forget, however, is that our bodies create and use free radicals to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In fact, the cells responsible for fighting infection and foreign invaders in the body (your white blood cells) make hydrogen peroxide and use it to oxidize any offending culprits. The intense bubbling you see when hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with a bacteria-laden cut or wound is the oxygen being released and bacteria being destroyed. The ability of our cells to produce hydrogen peroxide is essential for life. H202 is not some undesirable by-product or toxin, but instead a basic requirement for good health.

Newer research indicates we need hydrogen peroxide for a multitude of other chemical reactions that take place throughout the body. For example, we now know that vitamin C helps fight infections by producing hydrogen peroxide, which in turn stimulates the production of prostaglandins. Also lactobacillus found in the colon and vagina produce hydrogen peroxide. This destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, preventing colon disease, vaginitis, bladder infections and a host of other common ailments. (Infect Dis News Aug.8,91:5). When lactobacillus in the colon or vaginal tract have been overrun with harmful viruses, yeast, or bacteria, an effective douche or enema solution can be made using 3 tablespoons of 3% H202 in 1 quart of distilled water. Keep in mind, however, that a good bacterial flora must always be re-established in theses areas to achieve lasting results.

Aerobic versus Anerobic

While we are discussing enemas and douches, there is another misconception about H202 I need to address. The friendly bacteria in the colon and vagina are aerobic. In other words, they flourish in high oxygen environments and thrive in the presence of oxygen rich H202. On the other hand, most strains of harmful bacteria (and cancer cells) are anaerobic and cannot survive in the presence of oxygen or H202. We can agree that hydrogen peroxide produced within individual body cells is essential for life. And no one doubts its effectiveness when it comes to treating infections topically. The controversy deals with ingesting the substance orally or introducing it into the body intravenously. The dispute has been going on for decades, and considering the attitude of our medical community, it will continue for many more decades to come.

I'll admit I was skeptical when I first learned about using H202 orally or intravenously. This healthy dose of skepticism, however, lead to a great deal of investigation, clinical work and experimentation. And while I realize a large majority of readers will probably never be convinced that H202 is a safe and effective compound, I am. Hydrogen peroxide is safe, readily available and dirt cheap. And best of all, it works! No one yet fully understands the complete workings of hydrogen peroxide. We do know that it is loaded with oxygen. (A pint of the food-grade 35% solution contains the equivalent of 130 pints of oxygen. A pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide found at the local drugstore contains 10 pints of oxygen. And a pint of the 6% solution used to bleach hair contains 20 pints of oxygen.) We also know that when H202 is taken into the body (orally or intravenously) the oxygen content of the blood and body tissues increases dramatically. Early researchers felt these increases were simply due to the extra oxygen molecule being released. This doesn't however, appear to be the case.

Only very diluted amounts of H202 are ever introduced into the body. The small amount of oxygen present couldn't be solely responsible for the dramatic changes that take place. Dr. Charles Farr, a strong proponent of intravenous use, has discovered another possible answer. Dr. Farr has shown that hydrogen peroxide stimulates enzyme systems throughout the body. This triggers an increase in the metabolic rate, causes small arteries to dilate and increase blood flow, enhances the body's distribution and consumption of oxygen and raises body temperature (Proceedings of the International Conference on Bio-Oxidative Medicine 1989, 1990, 1991).

Father Richard Willhelm

We are just beginning to learn exactly how H202 works. It was reported to work as far back as 1920. The English medical journal, Lancet, then reported that intravenous infusion was used successfully to treat pneumonia in the epidemic following World War I. In the 1940's Father Richard Willhelm, the pioneer in promoting peroxide use, reported on the compound being used extensively to treat everything from bacterial-related mental illness to skin disease and polio. Father Willhelm is the founder of "Educational Concern for Hydrogen Peroxide" (ECHO, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public on the safe use and therapeutic benefits of hydrogen peroxide.) Much of the interest in hydrogen peroxide waned in the 1940's when prescription medications came on the scene. Since that time there has been little economic interest in funding peroxide research. After all, it is dirt cheap and non-patentable. Even still, in the last 25 years, over 7,700 articles relating to hydrogen peroxide have been written in the standard medical journals. Thousands more, involving its therapeutic use, have appeared in alternative health publications. The number of conditions helped by hydrogen peroxide is astounding. The reported dangers and side effects are few and often conflicting.

Emphysema
Let's look at several conditions that seem to respond especially well to H202 therapy. First, keep in mind that there are two methods of administering the peroxide-1) orally and 2) intravenously. While most conditions respond remarkably to oral ingestion, emphysema is one condition in which intravenous infusion can be a godsend. Emphysema involves destruction of the alveoli (the small air sacs in the lungs). Although chemical fumes and other irritants can cause the destruction, it is most often the result of smoking. As the disease progresses, the patient finds it more and more difficult to breathe. A wheel chair and supplemental oxygen become necessary as the disease progresses. Lack of adequate oxygen reaching the tissues forces the heart to pump more forcefully. This leads to high blood pressure, enlargement of the heart itself and eventually heart failure. Conventional medicine offers little help for emphysema. There is no cure. The best that can be hoped for is symptomatic relief and the prevention of any serious complications that might result in death. H202 therapy can offer more. Using 1 ounce of 35% peroxide per 1 gallon of non-chlorinated water in a vaporizer improves nighttime breathing tremendously. But intravenous infusion holds the real key to relief. It has the ability to cleanse the inner lining of the lungs and restore the ability to breathe.

We continue to hear the same story from Dr. Farr and others who use intravenous infusion for emphysema and congestive lung problems. Within minutes oxygen from hydrogen peroxide begins to bubble up between the membrane lining the lungs sacs and the accumulated mucus. (Dr. Farr refers to this as the "Alka-Seltzer effect.") The patient begins to cough and expel the material that has accumulated in the lungs. The amount of bubbling, coughing, and cleansing can be regulated by simply turning the H202 on and off. As the peroxide clears the lung surface and destroys the bacterial infections, the patient regains the ability to breath more normally. We continue to receive reports from patients for whom the technique has improved breathing so much that a wheelchair and supplemental oxygen are no longer needed. If you would like to find a doctor in your area trained in the use of intravenous H202 infusion, contact the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation (IBOM), P.O. Box 13205, Oklahoma City, OK 73113 at (405) 478-4266. They can provide names and addresses of doctors using the procedure in your area.

If emphysema were the only ailment successfully treated with H202 therapy, it would still rank as one of the top health discoveries of all time. Fortunately, H202 works wonders on a multitude of health problems. It does so by increasing tissue oxygen levels. A closer look at how we have decreased the availability of external and internal oxygen, will show you just how important this can be. If you were not too occupied with trying to hide dissection specimens in the other student's desks, you might remember from elementary science courses that our atmosphere contains about 20% oxygen. That is under ideal circumstances. It has recently been reported that in many of our more polluted cities, there levels have dropped to around 10%! (I have already mentioned how less hydrogen peroxide-containing rain is reaching the earth's surface. With increased pollution it is reacting with airborne toxins before it even reaches the ground.) And everyone, by now, knows the oxygen-generating rain forests are being destroyed worldwide, which further reduces available oxygen. Internal oxygen availability is also under attack.

Chlorination of drinking water removes oxygen. Cooking and over-processing of our foods lowers their oxygen content. Unrestrained antibiotic use destroys beneficial oxygen-creating bacteria in the intestinal tract. Dr. Johanna Budwig of Germany has shown that for proper cellular utilization of oxygen to take place, our diets must contain adequate amounts of unsaturated fatty acids. Unfortunately, the oils rich in these fatty acids have become less and less popular with the food industry. Their very nature makes them more biologically active, which requires more careful processing and gives them a shorter shelf-life. Rather than deal with these challenges, the food industry has turned to the use of synthetic fats and dangerous processes like hydrogenation.

It's obvious that our oxygen needs are not being met. Several of the most common ailments now affecting our population are directly related to oxygen starvation. Asthma, emphysema, and lung disease are on the rise, especially in the polluted metropolitan areas. Cases of constipation, diarrhea, intestinal parasites and bowel cancer are all on the upswing. Periodontal disease is endemic in the adult population of this country. Cancer of all forms continues to increase. Immune system disorders are sweeping the globe. Chronic fatigue, "Yuppie Flu" and hundreds of other strange viral diseases have begun to surface. Ironically, many of the new "miracle" drugs and nutritional supplements used to treat these conditions work by increasing cellular oxygen (oftentimes through H202 formation). For example, the miracle nutrient, Coenzyme Q10, helps regulate intercellular oxidation. Organic germanium, which received considerable publicity not too long ago, also increases oxygen levels at the cellular level. And even substances like niacin and vitamin E promote tissue oxidation through their dilation of blood vessels.

Hydrogen peroxide is only one of the many components that help regulate the amount of oxygen getting to your cells. Its presence is vital for many other functions as well. It is required for the production of thyroid hormone and sexual hormones. (Mol Cell Endocrinol 86;46(2): 149-154) (Steroids 82;40(5):5690579). It stimulates the production of interferon (J Immunol 85;134(4):24492455). It dilates blood vessels in the heart and brain (Am J Physiol 86;250 (5 pt 2): H815-821 and (2 pt 2):H157-162). It improves glucose utilization in diabetics (Proceedings of the IBOM Conference 1989, 1990, 1991). The closer you look at hydrogen peroxide, the less surprising it becomes that it can help such a wide variety of conditions.

The following is only a partial listing of conditions in which H202 therapy has been used successfully. (Many of these conditions are serious, if not life-threatening. As always, I would highly recommend seeking the advice and guidance of a doctor experienced in the use of these techniques.)

Grades of Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is available in various strengths and grades.

A) 3.5% Pharmaceutical Grade: This is the grade sold at your local drugstore or supermarket. This product is not recommended for internal use. It contains an assortment of stabilizers which shouldn't be ingested. Various stabilizers include: acetanilide, phenol, sodium stanate and tertrasodium phosphate.

  6% Beautician Grade: This is used in beauty shops to color hair and is not recommended for internal use.

C) 30% Reagent Grade: This is used for various scientific experimentation and also contains stabilizers. It is also not for internal use.

D) 30% to 32% Electronic Grade: This is used to clean electronic parts and not for internal use.

E) 35% Technical Grade: This is a more concentrated product than the Reagent Grade and differs slightly in that phosphorus is added to help neutralize any chlorine from the water used to dilute it.

F) 35% Food Grade: This is used in the production of foods like cheese, eggs, and whey-containing products. It is also sprayed on the foil lining of aseptic packages containing fruit juices and milk products. THIS IS THE ONLY GRADE RECOMMENDED FOR INTERNAL USE. It is available in pints, quarts, gallons or even drums. Various suppliers are mentioned later in this article.

G) 90%: This is used as an oxygen source for rocket fuel.

Only 35% Food Grade hydrogen peroxide is recommended for internal use. At this concentration, however, hydrogen peroxide is a very strong oxidizer and if not diluted, it can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. Any concentrations over 10% can cause neurological reactions and damage to the upper gastrointestinal tract. There have been two known fatalities in children who ingested 27% and 40% concentrations of H202. Recently, a 26 month old female swallowed one mouthful of 35% H202. She immediately began vomiting, followed by fainting and respiratory arrest. Fortunately, she was under emergency room care and although she experienced erosion and bleeding of the stomach and esophagus, she survived the incident. When she was re-examined 12 days later, the areas involved had healed (J Toxicol Clin Toxicol 90;28(1):95-100).

35% Food Grade H202 must be

1) handled carefully (direct contact will burn the skin--immediate flushing with water is recommended).

2) diluted properly before use. 3) stored safely and properly (after making a dilution the remainder should be stored tightly sealed in the freezer).

One of the most convenient methods of dispensing 35% H202 is from a small glass eye dropper bottle. These can be purchased at your local drugstore. Fill this with the 35% H202 and store the larger container in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator until more is needed. Store the eye dropper bottle in the refrigerator. The generally recommended dosage is outlined in the chart below. The drops are mixed with either 6 to 8 ounces of distilled water, juice, milk or even aloe vera juice or gel. (Don't use chlorinated tap water to dilute the peroxide!)

Suggested Protocol
The program outlined is only a suggestion, but it is based on years of experience, and reports from thousands of users. Those who choose to go at a slower pace can expect to progress more slowly, but that certainly is an option. The program is not carved in stone and keep in mind that it can be adapted to fit individual needs. Individuals who have had transplants should not undertake an H202 program. H202 stimulates the immune system and could possibly cause a rejection of the organ.

Day # -Number of Drops/ Times Per Day
01 - 3 3
02 - 4 3
03 - 5 3
04 - 6 3
05 - 7 3
06 - 8 3
07 - 9 3
08 - 10 3
09 - 12 3
10 - 14 3
11 - 16 3
12 - 18 3
13 - 20 3
14 - 22 3
15 - 24 3
16 - 25 3

Maintenance Dosage
In most situations after the above 21 day program, the amount of H202 can be tapered off gradually as follows:

25 drops once every other day for 1 week
25 drops once every third day for 2 weeks
25 drops once every fourth day for 3 weeks

This can then be reduced to between 5 and 15 drops per week based on how one feels. Those with more serious problems will often benefit from staying on 25 drops three times a day for one to three weeks, then tapering down to 25 drops two times daily until the problem is resolved (possibly as long as six months). Those with chronic systemic Candidiasis may need to start with 1 drop three times a day, then 2 drops three times a day before starting the above schedule. It is important that H202 be taken on an empty stomach. This is best accomplished by taking it either one hour before meals or three hours after meals. If there is food in the stomach, the reaction of H202 on any bacteria present may cause excess foaming, indigestion, and possibly even vomiting. Additionally, some animal research indicates that when H202 given orally combines with iron and small amounts of vitamin C in the stomach, hydroxyl radicals are created (J Inorg Biochem 89;35(1):55-69). The bleach-like aftertaste of H202 can be lessened by chewing one of the sugar-free cinnamon gums. Some individuals taking H202 immediately before bedtime have a difficult time getting to sleep. This is probably due to a sense of alertness triggered by an increase of oxygen at the cellular level. The oral dosage schedule is basically the same for all conditions. There are several points to keep in mind, however.

Some individuals may experience upset stomach. If this occurs it is recommended that one not stop the program, but rather remain at the current dosage level or reduce it to the previous level until the problem stops. (Some patients have been able to solve the nausea problem by taking three or four lecithin capsules at the same time they take the H202.) During the program it's not uncommon to experience what is known as a healing crisis. As dead bacteria and toxins are released from your body it may temporarily exceed your capacity to eliminate them quickly enough. In some individuals this overload may cause fatigue, diarrhea, headaches, skin eruptions, cold or flu-like symptoms, and/or nausea. One should not discontinue using the peroxide to stop this cleansing. By continuing the program, toxins will clear the body sooner and this healing crisis will pass rather quickly.

If you are not already taking vitamin E and an acidophilus product, I recommend starting them before going on H202. Vitamin E can make more efficient use of any oxygen available and acidophilus will help re-establish the beneficial bacterial flora in the lower bowel and also help in the internal production of hydrogen peroxide.


Making and Using 3% Solutions of H202
A 3.5% solution can be made quite easily by first pouring 1 ounce of 35% H202 into a pint jar. To this add 11 ounces of distilled water. This will make 12 ounces of 3.5% H202. 3.5% H202 has a variety of medicinal uses.

1 - Three tablespoons mixed with a quart of non-chlorinated water makes a good enema or douche formula.
2 - It can be used full strength as a mouthwash or mixed with baking soda for toothpaste.
3 - It can be used full strength as a foot bath for athlete's foot. (Diabetics have found relief from circulation problems by soaking their feet in 1 pint of 3% peroxide mixed with 1 gallon of warm, non-chlorinated water for 30 minutes nightly.)
4 - A tablespoon added to 1 cup of non-chlorinated water can be used as a nasal spray. Depending on the degree of sinus involvement, one will have to adjust the amount of peroxide used. I have seen some who can use it at the full 3% strength and others who had difficulty with using a few drops and mixed with a cup of water.
5 - 3.5% H202 can be added to pets drinking water at the rate of 1 ounce per quart of non-chlorinated water. Sick cattle reportedly benefit from 1 pint (of 3%) to each 5 gallons of water. (Chickens and cows have remained healthy by using 8 ounces of 35% H202 per 1,000 gallons of drinking water.)

Additional Information
There are two sources you should contact if you have an interest in using hydrogen peroxide therapy. The first, ECHO, was founded by Father Richard Willhelm and is run by Walter Grotz. Their information packet includes a sample newsletter, a list of H202 distributors and several other items. The packet is being made available to interested ALTERNATIVES readers for only $3. Their address is

ECHO Box 126
Delano, MN 55328

If you have an interest in contacting doctors who provide intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy you can write to the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation (IBOM) at the address listed earlier in this article. You should also be aware that there are now numerous hydrogen peroxide products on the market. Some are simply peroxide that has been flavored and mixed with sea minerals, aloe vera, inner tree bark or other ingredients to make the peroxide more palatable (Superoxy, Oxy Toddy, etc.).

Others claim to have developed products that deliver more oxygen than does simple hydrogen peroxide (Aerox, Anti-Oxid-10, Di-Oxychloride, Aerobic 07, Aqua Pure, etc.). Basically you'll end up paying a small fortune and at best achieving the same results you can get for pennies by using hydrogen peroxide.

Conclusion
Hydrogen peroxide is one of the few simple miracle substances still available to the public. Its safety and multiple uses ranks it right up there with DMSO. If you've never used either of these compounds you are overlooking two of the most powerful healing tools ever discovered. Most of us started on hydrogen peroxide shortly after birth. Not only does mother's milk contain high amounts of H202, the amount contained in the first milk (colostrum) is even higher. This seems only reasonable now that we know one of its main functions is to activate and stimulate the immune system. Although I am a strong supporter of H202 therapy, I am not suggesting that everyone needs to be using it. There are probably some individuals whose health and well-being would not be enhanced with hydrogen peroxide. But there are also millions of others who are suffering needlessly because they either do not know about hydrogen peroxide or they have been misinformed about its use.

I have known for a couple decades that mother nature has a cure for almost any disease. The problem is that we live in an age when profit is more of a motive than a cure to most diseases. With that said, there are answers out there, and natural cures to some of the most plaguing diseases of mankind. Simple sunshine can be a cure for most cancers, if one doesn't overdo it and get too much sun. Vitamin D3 can be used as a supplement, as can vitamin C, E and other natural supplements such as selenium, zinc, saw palmetto, cat's claw, garlic, pumpkin seeds (another source of zinc), along with eating these vegetables: tomatoes (and tomato sauces) broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, mustard greens, and turnips.

One of the most amazing stories I have been doing a lot of research on is the use of hydrogen peroxide and ozone therapies. Hydrogen peroxide has been used for centuries in Europe to cure diseases and even the flu. This past century, many doctors and hospitals in Europe use hydrogen peroxide therapy, while it is practically banned in the United States. The reason it is banned here is because of the multi-billion dollar cancer industry that has grown even faster than the disease it is supposed to fight.

I have found many legitimate medical sources that show that hydrogen peroxide and ozone therapy are many times more successful in treating cancer and other diseases than the orthodox treatments used here in the States. However, with the Big Med and Big Pharm lobbyists in Washington doling out billions in bribes to Congress and other politicians, the alternative treatments are being treated like the scourge of the earth. In fact, treatments like hydrogen peroxide are looked upon in detest and loathed more by the American Cancer Society than the cancer disease itself. And with good cause....the trillions of dollars that are being spent on drugs and horrific orthodox treatments that actually do more harm than good.

It is a gigantic industry and that's why there is a health crisis in America now where people, and companies that employ them, can no longer afford insurance. It goes from Big Pharm, to the doctors, to the hospitals to the insurance companies.

Here's a case in point from the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc site...

http://www.new-cancer-treatments.org/Articles/Politics.html

Introduction to the Politics of Cancer

The mass media receives many billions of dollars every year from the pharmaceutical industry in advertising revenues. Anyone who has not been living in a cave all their life knows that the media are very loyal to their major advertisers.

Both the media and the pharmaceutical industry are worth massive billions of dollars. Can you expect any truth from either industry?

Both groups are interested in money and the media is more than willing to increase their fortunes by "jumping in bed" with Big Pharma. Thus, while you may think that everything you know about cancer comes from the media, in fact, everything you hear from the media about cancer actually comes from the pharmaceutical industry.

For example, the mass media tells everyone that there is no cure for cancer. The mass media also tells everyone that cancer is so complex that it will take many decades to find a cure for cancer.

Big Pharma supposedly has been "looking" for a cure for cancer for more than 100 years. But for some strange reason they act like it will be another hundred years before a cure is found. During these 200 years (actually it is a "carrot and stick" trick and there will never be a general cure for cancer from Big Pharma) both Big Pharma and Big Medicine will rake in many trillions of dollars!!!

The claims of Big Pharma are nonsense. These are not the claims of people who are experts in cancer, these claims come from businessmen who are only interested in money. The media is nothing but a mouthpiece for Big Pharma because it is more profitable to sell your soul than to tell the truth and help people!!!

Also, you probably think that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is diligently seeking your best interests. Did it ever occur to you that what you hear about the FDA comes from the media. Because everything you hear from the media comes from the pharmaceutical industry, you can rest assured everything you hear about the FDA also comes from the pharmaceutical industry.

The pharmaceutical industry loves the FDA because in 1910 Congress assigned the FDA to be the police force of Big Pharma. Actually, the FDA is more like a mafia than a police force. But you will never hear anything bad about the FDA or the pharmaceutical industry in the media.

The prime purpose of the FDA is to shut down competitors of Big Pharma. But the media tells you that the prime purpose of the FDA is to shut down scam artists. Yes, there are scam artists among the competitors of Big Pharma, but there are also people who know how to cure cancer who are also shut down by the FDA!!

In other words, the FDA does not care whether someone knows how to cure cancer, the FDA shuts down everyone who cuts into the profits of the pharmaceutical industry, even if they know how to cure cancer.

I have ordered my food grade Hydrogen Peroxide and am now looking for a proper nasal sprayer to use. They say you can empty the solution in the nasal sprayer and then wash it out. You can then spray the hydrogen peroxide (watered down solution) in the back of your throat. You can also use a even more watered down spay for your nasal passages to clear them up.

Here's another article I found about using food grade H202 for all sorts of alilments (including the flu)...

http://www.dancingalgae.com/hydrogenperoxide.html

Why is food grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) important to the body?

Food grade Hydrogen peroxide contains a pure form of oxygen; something that can be used by every cell in the body. By adding food grade hydrogen peroxide to your daily routine, you can increase your oxygen intake. When you increase your oxygen intake, you increase your body's ability to function at a higher level with respect to digestion, regularity, and immune system function.

How can food grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) help me?


By increasing the amount of oxygen available to your body, you can improve your digestion, improve your circulation, strengthen your immune system, and increase cellular function. For example; someone coping with arthritic pain has found relief simply by ingesting food grade H2O2 (this practice is best done under the supervision of someone experienced in administering this therapy). I have a copy of their experience on file. Another example is the testimony of Dr. Christiaan Barnard (the first doctor to perform a successful heart transplant surgery). When asked about ingesting H2O2, he said: "I do everything possible to retard the aging process" .


Is food grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) Safe to Use In My Body?

The FDA has only approved the use of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash. The FDA has not approved the use of food grade H2O2 internally. In spite of thousands of testimonials and trials done by doctors using food grade hydrogen peroxide in their practice, the FDA still does not approve the use of food grade hydrogen peroxide for use internally (Safe use of H2O2) or (How hydrogen peroxide works in the body. pdf.).


I have been using 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide in my drinking water for over three years. "I add 7.5 ml (1 1/2 teaspoons) of 3% or food grade H2O2 to a gallon of distilled water to make my .006% H2O2 for my drinking water. This formula gives me one gallon of .006% food grade H2O2 drinking water". I have some clients who add less (1 teaspoon) and some who add more (up to 2 teaspoons - I suggest you never go higher than two teaspoons of H2O2). In this respect, everyone is different. I feel the important thing to focus on at this point is the fact that distilled water is always used in the manufacture and dilution of our hydrogen peroxide products. Why? Hydrogen peroxide is an accelerant and a solvent. If you are using a hydrogen peroxide mixture that was mixed with anything other than distilled water, you may be exposing your self to toxic chemicals because oxygen has the ability to bind with almost every element in nature. To minimize the risk of this happening, distilled water has almost all the minerals removed. I only use and market food grade hydrogen peroxide in distilled water.


Measuring small amonts of food grade Hydrogen Peroxide to add to Distilled Water.

If you are wondering how you will ever get the food grade hydrogen peroxide out of the gallon jug without spilling much of it on the floor, we suggest you ask for Item # 111 (this item contains one 4 oz bottle of 3% food grade H2O2, a 25 ml lab quality glass beaker, a glass Eye Dropper, and the booklet titled: "The Safe And Sane Use Of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide." With these items at your fingertips, you will be able to measure and use the food grade hydrogen peroxide as you choose. The booklet also contains additional information on some new options available to you.

Fact: Our atmosphere is polluted today.. The oxygen content of our atmosphere is down to around 18 to 20%. Just a hundred years ago, it was 36 - 40%.


Personal Uses for 3% & 4.5% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)


Athlete's foot: Hydrogen peroxide can be used in a foot bath for athlete's foot, bunions, corns, plantar warts and general foot health. Diabetics have found relief from circulation problems by soaking their feet in this solution. Add 1 pint of 3% or 4.5% food grade H2O2 to 1gallon of warm, clean/distilled water and soak for 30 minutes morning and night. This practice will improve the overall oxygen content of the blood.

Bath: Add 1 pint /1 quart of 6% food grade H2O2 to a tub (about 40 gallons) of filtered hot water (chlorine kills oxygen) and soak for about 30 minuites. I tape up the overflow so I can fill the tub.

Children: In 1928 Richard Simmons, M.D. hypothesized that colds and flu virus enter the body through the ear canal. The medical community dismissed his findings. According to Dr. Simmons research, and contrary to what you may think or have been taught about how you catch the flu or a cold, there is only one way that you can acquire this air-born infection; and that's via the ear canal. It is not through the eyes, nose, or mouth, as most have believed (Hydrogen Peroxide Handout pdf)..


Giving a child one or two drops (adults may need three or four) of hydrogen peroxide in each ear at the first sign of infection, may shorten the duration of the illness. I encourage you to use food grade H2O2, when you choose to follow this practice. I say this because theoretically, this is the equivalent of using H2O2 as a mouthwash; something the FDA has already approved. Note; It may make a gurgling sound in the ear so its important to prepare the child for what is coming and explain to them the benefit of the practice. It is also possible to use a cotten swab dipped in 3% or 4.5% food grade hydrogen peroxide to clean the ears.

Corns: See Athlete's foot,

Deodorant: Saturate a cotton ball with 3 % or 4.5% food grade H2O2 and rub it on your armpits. You can also use a sprayer for this application.


Douche: Add five to six tesspoons of 3 % or 4.5% food grade H2O2 (maximum) to one quart of distilled water.


Drinking Water***: On Mix one to one and one half teaspoons (7.5 ml) of 3% or 5ml of 4.5% food grade hydrogen peroxide to one gallon of distilled water. (Read caution at the end of this paper.)

Enema or Colonic: Mix 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) of 3 % or 4.5 % food grade H2O2 to one quart of distilled warm water (103ºF) for enema or 8 ounces per 5 gallons of clean water for the colonic (Colon Therapy).


Facial: For rejuvenation and freshening your face after washing; saturate a cotton ball with 3 % or 4.5% food grade H2O2 and gently rub on the face and neck.


Mouthwash*: On arising rinse mouth with water, then gargle and wash mouth with 3 % or 4.5% food grade H2O2 , swishing for about 60 seconds. This practice may also help to whiten your teeth. (Note: a dash of chlorophyll adds flavor and effectiveness.)


Nasal Spray: A tablespoon of 3% or 4.5% food grade H2O2 added to 1 cup of distilled water can be used as a nasal spray. Depending on the degree of sinus involvement, one will have to adjust the amount of peroxide used. I have seen some who can use the hydrogen peroxide at the full strength and others who had difficulty with using a few drops mixed in a cup of distilled water.


Eyes: Never use any type of hydrogen peroxide that is above .006% in or around the eyes. If you should get some in your eyes, flush immediately with plenty of cold water and call your physician.

Pets Drinking Water: 3% or 4.5% food grade H2O2 can be added to pets drinking water at the rate of 1/2 to 1 ounce per gallon of distilled water.

Plantar Warts: See Athele's foot.

Purging: There are two different purging schedules (oral use of food grade H2O2 ***) available for anyone interested in learning about this procedure (call or e-mail me regarding this information). Both of these programs have proven effective for some people who were coping with chronic disease and/or with parasite infestation (candidia and/or round worms [Ascaris lumbricoides]). It is extremely important for you to familiarize yourself with all the procedures and restrictions involved, should you choose to consider using the oral therapy approach.


During the past year, I've come to believe this may be one of the most closely guarded secrets in the health care industry. I feel this way because this knowledge has been available for over a hundred years. Why is it not discussed with people who are coping with disease? What would happen if people were able to treat minor infections successfully at home?


Here are some other facts I would like you to consider;


1. A person can go without food for up to thirty days;


2. A person can go without water for up to three days;


3. A person can go without oxygen for about twenty seconds before brain cells start to die off.


I believe these facts tell us oxygen is absolutely essential for life. A healthy person produces hydrogen peroxide internally every day. The first milk a woman gives her baby (colostrum) is extremely high in hydrogen peroxide. Doesn’t it stand to reason that nature (God, Spirit, Buddha) knows how important hydrogen peroxide is to our health? Is it possible that by adding hydrogen peroxide to our diet properly, we can gain some control over the very factors that may be causing us a lot of pain and discomfort?


From my studies, I believe the answer is; “yesâ€. I’ve learned it is the parasites that infest the GI tract, and in some cases, the blood stream can be causing concerns for many people. These parasites require an environment that is oxygen deficient. Here are some other facts I’ve learned about these microbes:


These same parasites have a highly developed social structure. They are able to communicate with each other. They are also able to communicate with the host. When their needs are not being met, they have ways of correcting the situation (when you experience a craving for something that is not good for your health, it’s possible the parasites are driving the craving).


When oxygen levels are increased in the body of a person by using some form of oxygen therapy, the parasites (pathogen/virus/harmful bacteria) can no longer exist because of the increased level of oxygen present. In an oxygen rich environment, they will die.


Note; The intelligent (safe) use of hydrogen peroxide is important. I encourage you to seek as much information as you need to this end (the web is a great resource). I'll certainly help you as much as I can.

I Googled Nasal spray pump as I going to administer the hydrogen peroxide by using a fine mist spray as opossed to drinking three 8 oz glasses of it a day (may try that at times). I found this site, where the person not only uses the nasal spray for inhaling the H202, but also in his garden to improve his plants and get rid of insects...

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

Hydrogen Peroxide is the most over looked chemical used by man. New uses of it are coming to light every day. Bad bugs be they, in your garden or your body, they cannot live in an oxygen rich environment.At 69 years old my muscles were so tight that to get out of bed I would lay on my stomach and back out on to the floor, push down on the bed and stand up. I knew there was something to correct this bad situation. One morning while having coffee with a friend, I noticed he had brought a small stack of books with him. Being curious, I asked if I could look at the books. The one that stood out to me was "

O2xygen Therapies". As I was scanning it, it became more interesting to me. I asked him if I could take it home. It was a week before returning the book. Being convinced Hydrogen Peroxide was what I was looking for, it was now going to into my system? The book gave three choices. Put 8 to 10 drops in an 8 oz cup and drink it, four times a day. Next was, put a pint of 35% in the bathtub and soak for 1 hour once a week. Or go to a doctor for intravenous infusion once a week. None of these had any appeal to me. After a week or two I decided that the easiest, and most efficient way was to inhale the 3% peroxide into my mouth and on into my lungs. I just happened to have a “Nasal Spray Pump” (see sample picture below). I dumped the contents out, put in the 3% peroxide as it comes from the drugstore. Now, how many times do I pump? I settled for one pump per inhale, and 4 times a day. That went on for about a month. As I was laying down for a short rest, I noticed that I was breathing freely. No forced inhale or exhale. That was the first thing that I noticed while inhaling the peroxide. I then changed the time when to inhale the peroxide. Now I inhale 2 times in the morning and at night. While deep inhaling I pump the pump as many times as I can, usually 8 to 10 pumps each inhale. Another thing I noticed was, I sleep all night with my mouth closed. I used to have heart aches that were very uncomfortable, no more.

My wife and I have been inhaling peroxide for 9 years now and no colds, sore muscles, aches or pains. I take no medication or vitamins. I am less than two years to 80 years old. My lungs don’t give out when I work in my garden or other things around the house. My house is 160 years old, so the work never stops. Peroxide keeps our oxygen blood count in the high 90’s.

One of the first people that used the peroxide as I do was very interesting. He had a low self-esteem. I found out that he was on kidney dialysis. I discussed the peroxide several times with him. Finally one day I went to his house with a nasal spray pump. He opened it and poured out the contents and filled it back up with 3% peroxide. He sprayed it in to his mouth and into his lungs. I said you know how to do it, and I left. Three days later I called him to see if anything had happened. He said that he could breath easier. Four days latter he called me, he was so excited all he could say was “It’s working, It’s working". I asked "What did it do?". He said he was waking up about an hour and a half before normal and that he was coughing up all the bad stuff that was in his lungs. He went back to bed and when he woke up, he said he had not felt that good in years. From that time on his spirit was always good and his voice was up beat.

A couple of people told me after four or five years of using the peroxide they stopped. I ask why and both said they did not get sick, and they don’t think it was working. You can make that judgement. One friend of ours goes to the doctor for pacemaker check ups and the doctor tells him the peroxide will not help him but it will not do him any harm. He is using his second pacemaker. He has told me several times; if it were not for his inhaling the peroxide he would not be here today.

Nasal Pump Use

The nasal spray pump plays a big part in my use of peroxide. I use it to propel the peroxide into my lungs by spraying it into the back of my throat. I also spray my toothbrush to clean my teeth, to clean my glasses, spray minor cuts and scrapes, and wet postage stamps. Peroxide can be used as an aftershave tonic. Spray it on your face and rub it in. BE SURE you close your eyes when you spray your face. It will be uncomfortable if you don’t. Peroxide may be a factor in retarding aging.   I have an additional nasal pump that is full of distilled water and I use it to flush out my eyes when they feel a little dry. I spray my eyes and let the water drain down my cheeks. I wipe the water off my cheeks only, with a tissue. There are no chemicals in distilled water. 

 I think in the future many of the prescription drugs will come in a spray pump. Several do now but we will be seeing more.  This allows the drugs to start to work instantly. They will go right into your system and not have to ward off the acids in your stomach. They can be easily dispensed almost anywhere. 

Do you have a suggestion for the use of a nasal pump? I’d be interested in hearing from you.    

GARDENING WITH
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
 

This will be the most phenomenal article you will ever read. It deals with something as simple as H2O2 (Peroxide) and is harmless to all good things. I have been gardening for about 40 years and was wondering why bad bugs had to have a very specific pesticide to control them. I had been inhaling peroxide for aches, pains and allergies and it seemed to control all of them. Not having any source to go to for the information on how to use peroxide in the garden, I decided on the trial and error method. I have never started a project that I new how to get to the end, and this was no exception.   
The beauty supply store would have the peroxide that I needed. The 40% peroxide cost about $2.50 a quart. I bought the least expensive they had, because I did not need any additives.  Having no knowledge of what strength to use, I used 8% for my plants. They did not die so that is the strength I have used ever since. 

If you have a small garden you will need a hand squeeze sprayer. A little peroxide goes a long way. My lot is about 100 X 85 and I use a six-gallon sprayer. I have it mounted on a 2-wheel handcart.  The peroxide comes in several strengths, so the strength you start out with is not that important as long as the final strength is 8%. Peroxide should be kept out of the sun.   

When you plant the seedlings dig the hole and spray it with peroxide using your hand sprayer.  Wet it good and then wet the roots of the seedlings or small plant.  
 
I don’t use any commercial fertilizers. I have my own well so I have none of those chemicals the government uses in their water. When I prune the fruit trees, I put the trimmings in the chipper and add all the ashes from my wood burner and then till them into the garden in the fall. My garden is composting all year long. The grass clippings are used for the walkways between plants. I started out with clay, now the soil is black and soft.  
 
Corn was the first plant that I used the peroxide on. I marked two rows off and every 12 inches made a hole about 2” or 3” deep. I put one kernel in each hole then poured about third cup of 8% peroxide in each hole and covered them up.  In 5 to 6 days  the sprouts came up. Fourteen days later I repeated the process without the peroxide. They came up in 12 to 14 days. Fourteen days later I repeated the first with the peroxide and they came up in 5 to 6 days. As the corn grew the corn with out the peroxide did not grow well as the ones with peroxide. I have noticed that the birds do not attack the ears of corn any more, and I assume it is because there are no worms in ears of corn. Birds can fly over the corn and know there are no worms in the corn. Do they have a sense that man does not have?   
 
Acorn squash was next. They were planted with out peroxide. After 3 or 4 leaves formed the bugs made filigree of the leaves. One new leaf was untouched. I sprayed the plants with peroxide and as time went by the plants sprouted new leaves. They produced several squash. I sprayed the plants after every rain.  I planted turnips with no peroxide and the bugs over took them. I wet them down with peroxide and that stopped the bugs.  

I planted radishes and they grew bigger than golf balls, and had a mild and firm taste. I will be planting radishes and carrots this year. Last year the turnips grew to 6” to 8” in diameter and were mild when cooked.       
The next year I decideaking the seeds before I planted them. I soak them for three or four hours just before I planted them. The only seeds that did not survive the soaking were the navy beans. They just slipped out of their skins. 
 
The potatoes have been interesting. The first year I planted potatoes I planted them without soaking them but sprayed them after they came up. I wet them down (not soaking) after they were 6 or 8 inches tall. Then about three weeks later I just sprayed a mist over them. They had some very small holes in them but they produced good potatoes. The next year I soaked them before planting and misted them when they came up. Last year I had several self-sow potatoes.  I transplanted them but used no peroxide on them.  I have had self-sow squash that came from plants that were peroxide grown and they were bug free without using peroxide.
 
In 2002 I used one ounce of 40% peroxide per gallon.  Just about every thing that was green was sprayed and the results were a big surprise to my wife and me, We had no mosquitoes or any other flying bugs in our yard. There were a few ladybugs but they were few and far between. I don’t think the peroxide had any thing to do with the ladybugs directly. However, the lack of bugs for them to eat would be my guess why there were so few.  

The vegetable that gave me a problem was the cabbage. I was determined to conquer the cabbageworm. Years ago I sprayed the cabbage plants with peroxide to no avail. This year I soaked the cabbage seeds before planting them. There were no signs of the bug until the cabbage plants were almost full grown, then I poured about a quarter of cup of 8% peroxide over the cabbage, letting it flow down into the layers of the leaves. That stopped the cabbage bugs.  

This year I will use hydrogen peroxide more freely on every thing that is alive and green in my yard and garden.

I use the hydrogen peroxide spray every morning. The other things I am doing, like taking vitamin D, E, C, zinc, and other natural supplements such as selenium, zinc, saw palmetto, cat's claw, garlic, pumpkin seeds (another source of zinc), along with eating these vegetables: tomatoes (and tomato sauces) broccoli. There are other great super foods that help reduce the risk of cancer like brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, mustard greens, and turnips.

My changing of diet and taking these supplements seems to be working as my PSA dropped from 5.2 to 4.3. That's a big improvement and it should go down more with increased exercise and the hydrogen peroxide treatments.

Here's another honest look at Hydrogen Peroxide, that uses an objective view...

How Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy Works

by Sarah Siddons

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy for Cancer


Some lay people believe hydrogen peroxide to be a good treatment for some variations of cancer. Separately, many doctors have concluded that hydrogen peroxide therapy might be a good alternative to other cancer treatments [source: Farr and Josephs]. Because it is an alternative treatment, however, you should consult your physician before considering hydrogen peroxide therapy.

Hydrogen peroxide therapy has many names, including oxidative therapy, bio-oxidative therapy, oxydology and oxymedicine [source: University of California]. These names have oxy as a base word because hydrogen peroxide has the ability to infuse the body with oxygen, thus making the body an oxygen-rich zone. Some advocates of hydrogen peroxide therapy believe that cancer cells blossom in areas that lack proper oxygen; therefore, the use of hydrogen peroxide is obvious. Hydrogen peroxide therapy has the potential to go into areas where oxygen is low and cancer cells are high. If the oxygen there can be increased, perhaps it could stop the cancer cells from thriving. Hydrogen peroxide may bring healthy cells the energy they need in order to become stronger and ward off the cancer [source: American Cancer Society].

Though there were advocates of hydrogen peroxide therapy for treating cancer in the late 1800s, current evidence in the scientific world doesn't back up ideas that hydrogen peroxide therapy is effective in treating cancer. There is conflicting evidence as to whether or not the link between cancer and low oxygen levels in the cells even exists. Some doctors believe that the oxygen supply to these areas is sufficient, but the cells don't have the power to utilize the oxygen [source: Farr and Josephs]. This conflicting medical advice is something to keep in mind when searching for an alternative cancer therapy.

There are several ways to receive hydrogen peroxide therapy. Some people suggest drinking a diluted form of it, while others might recommend inserting it rectally, vaginally, or through the nose or the ears [source: American Cancer Society]. Though these are all possibilities, the most common method of receiving hydrogen peroxide is through intravenous injection.

Intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy was first brought en masse to the medical field at the First International Conference of Bio-oxidative Medicine in 1989 [source: Farr and Josephs]. Since then, many people stand behind the supposed power of hydrogen peroxide IV infusions. Treatments typically last an hour and a half. They can vary in frequency, as some people might request only one treatment and others might want an infusion five days a week [source: Kennedy].

Regardless of treatment frequency, intravenous hydrogen peroxide injections can have several dangers and side effects, the most serious being death. In South Carolina, a doctor of alternative medicine administered hydrogen peroxide to a patient who then died within five days of that injection [source: Liptak]. Other side effects of IV therapy are vein inflammation, red streaks up and down the arm, shortness of breath, chills, nausea and general aches [source: Farr and Josephs]. Despite these known side effects, some people claim that there are very few dangers when administered IV therapy by a professional [source: IV Therapy].

So while treating that childhood bicycle scrape may have not been a bad idea, you should consult your physician before you begin any sort of hydrogen peroxide therapy to see if it is best for you.

I have been experimenting between using the nasal spray (at 3% in the mouth) and drinking 8 oz of distilled water with 3 drops of h202 in it. So far, the spray seems to be winning. With only 3 drops in the water, I can already taste the "bleach-like" taste of the hydrogen peroxide. They suggest going up to 25 drops in a week and that I will not be able to do.

Here's another article about using hydrogen peroxide in therapy...

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy

The Controversy About The Extra Oxygen Molecule


Controversy abounds on the subject of hydrogen peroxide therapy. The reason for its popularity is because it is inexpensive, readily available and very powerful. The reason for the controversy is incomplete knowledge on what exactly your body does with hydrogen peroxide. Keep in mind that as with all good things, more isn’t necessarily better for you. It is easy to get carried away with the benefits of hydrogen peroxide therapy and overdose and harm yourself. We’ll provide you the information that we have uncovered thus far and leave it to you to judge for yourself.

What are the facts?

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is simply water with an extra oxygen atom attached (H2O+O). Hydrogen peroxide therapy consists of methods of using the extra oxygen molecule in hydrogen peroxide to target bacteria, viruses and other toxins in your body.

Many people mistakenly assume that hydrogen peroxide is a man-made chemical – in reality, it is a naturally occurring substance. Did you ever wonder why your yard looks so green and beautiful after a heavy rain? Ozone (O3), which is formed in the upper atmosphere (think ozone layer), is heavier than oxygen and thus migrates downward. As it passes through clouds (water vapor), it turns into hydrogen peroxide. If it is not destroyed by pollution in the lower atmosphere, it will reach the ground through rain and snow, thereby oxygenating surface water. Have you ever noticed that your grass is greener after a rainstorm, than with sprinkler watering? Have you ever enjoyed the clean fresh smell in the air after a heavy rainstorm? These are benefits from the hydrogen peroxide present in the rainwater.

What is the controversy?

Because it is less stable than a water molecule, hydrogen peroxide can readily react chemically and break down into simply water and oxygen. You must be thinking “Water and oxygen! It must be non-toxic!†However, just like ozone, hydrogen peroxide readily frees its extra oxygen atom initiating an oxidizing reaction. It is this reaction that is the source of the hydrogen peroxide therapy controversy.

While an oxidizing reaction has the ability to neutralize harmful chemicals and bacteria, this reaction can also have detrimental effects. Remember, oxidation is also the same reaction that causes metals to rust. While our bodies shouldn’t contain metals that are subject to rusting, the extra oxygen molecule circulates within the body as a free radical. I am sure that that term rings a bell? You have probably heard it in conjunction with all of the recent studies on anti-oxidants, which reduce damage caused by free radicals. Note the composition of the term “anti-oxidant†itself! Hence there is a controversy surrounding ingesting hydrogen peroxide – does it help in neutralizing chemicals and pathogens more than it hurts by increasing the number of free radicals?

What do I need to safely administer hydrogen peroxide therapy?

Like pure oxygen, pure hydrogen peroxide is extremely flammable. In fact a combination of 90% hydrogen peroxide and 10% water is used as rocket fuel! Therefore, care must be taken when administering hydrogen peroxide therapy, to ensure the proper concentration / dilution of hydrogen peroxide is used. The hydrogen peroxide readily available in the pharmacy is diluted to a 3% solution in water. Even at this dilution, it can be used to kill germs as a topical disinfectant or mouthwash. Nevertheless, do not use this for hydrogen peroxide therapy as it contains chemical stabilizers.

Always look for food grade hydrogen peroxide. In most cases, you will find food grade hydrogen peroxide in 12%, 17% or 35% solutions. At these concentrations, you must always use care when handling food grade hydrogen peroxide as it can burn your skin. Lastly, it must be diluted, using distilled water, to a minimum 3.5% solution before it can be used for therapeutic purposes. Any concentration of hydrogen peroxide above 10% can cause neurological damage. As previously mentioned, too much of a good thing is not always better for you!

CAUTION: If you accidentally spill undiluted hydrogen peroxide on yourself, quickly and thoroughly rinse that area under running water. That area of skin may turn temporarily white and you may experience a burning sensation.

Always store hydrogen peroxide away from heat and sunlight. Some sources suggest that the original solution that you bought should be stored in the freezer.

What is the proper dilution scale for food grade hydrogen peroxide?

Dilution scale: Note 2 oz = ¼ cup
Mix 2 oz of 35% hydrogen peroxide with 22 oz of distilled water = 24 oz 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution
Mix 2 oz of 17% hydrogen peroxide with 12 oz of distilled water = 14 oz 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution
Mix 2 oz of 12% hydrogen peroxide with 8 oz of distilled water = 10 oz 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution


Remember, hydrogen peroxide is a caustic substance when used in high concentrations. Diluting it to the proper concentration and not overdosing are key to administering hydrogen peroxide therapy safely, regardless of the application method you choose.


The Many Forms of Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy

Methods of hydrogen peroxide therapy that do not involve ingesting hydrogen peroxide are not controversial and are generally known to be safe, if applied properly. This site provides details on various methods of hydrogen peroxide therapy that do not involve ingesting. It also provides guidelines on how to further dilute hydrogen peroxide if you do choose to ingest it. With this information in mind, if you decide to administer hydrogen peroxide therapy by ingesting hydrogen peroxide, please follow the directions on this page to ensure that you do it in a safe manner.
Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy through your Lungs

Vaporizer

Mix 16 oz (2 C) of 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution with 128 oz (1 gallon) of water in a vaporizer. Use this mixture in your vaporizer nightly.

Nasal Spray

Mix 1 Tablespoon of 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution with 8 oz (1 C) of distilled water for use as a nasal spray. Use 2-3 squirts of this nasal spray throughout the day when you start experiencing signs of congestion. Better yet, try it daily and see if it helps ward off congestion during the cold and flu season.

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy through your Skin

Put 64 oz (2 quarts) of the 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution in a tub full of warm water. Soak in it for 30 minutes. The hot water will dilate your pores and blood vessels facilitating absorption. Your body will absorb the oxygen through your skin. Sounds like a hyperthermia treatment? Now you know how to combine the two treatments! Unlike a standard hyperthermia treatment, do not try this immediately before bedtime, as many people report that the oxygen actually energizes the body and hinders sleep.

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy through your Mucous Membranes

Mouthwash & Toothpaste

You can use the 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution full strength as a mouthwash. You can mix the 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution with baking soda and use this as toothpaste. It kills the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. Many people note that their dentists will comment on how white their teeth are and how healthy their gums. Surprise, surprise! Now you know the secret to the ever-popular teeth whitening systems!


Enema & Douche

Mix 3 Tablespoons of the 3.5% diluted hydrogen peroxide solution with 32 oz (1 quart) of distilled water. Administer per the directions for a normal enema or douche. Applied rectally, through an enema, it will clean the colon of harmful anaerobic bacteria, but will not hurt beneficial aerobic bacteria, such as acidophilus. Applied vaginally, in a douche, it can clean out yeast and bacterial infections.

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy through your Digestive Tract
Obviously, the other method of delivery through the mucous membranes is to ingest hydrogen peroxide orally. Taken orally, hydrogen peroxide is an extremely powerful cleanser for both the blood and the digestive tract. If at any point during the cleansing, the toxins purged by your body exceed your ability to eliminate them, you will most likely experience a healing crisis. You may experience fatigue, diarrhea, headaches, skin eruptions, cold or flu-like symptoms, and nausea. Do not discontinue the hydrogen peroxide therapy if you experience these symptoms.

Take the hydrogen peroxide on an empty stomach, either 1 hour before meals or 3 hours after meals. The hydrogen peroxide can react with bacteria present in food, causing foaming, indigestion and even vomiting. Avoid taking it too close to bedtime as it can energize you and result in sleeplessness.

Taken orally, you do not need to worry about pre-mixing a solution, as your objective is to get a certain amount of hydrogen peroxide per day. Fill a small, glass eyedropper bottle with the full strength solution that you purchased. Be very careful not to get any on your skin as it can burn you! Store the eyedropper bottle in the refrigerator.

Remember, the objective is to get the total number of drops per day, but you have to do it in a very diluted form. Using the table below, add the specified number of drops to 8 ounces of purified water (not chlorinated water!), milk, aloe vera juice or watermelon juice. Avoid mixing with other juices as they may contain compounds, such as beta carotene, which will cause the hydrogen peroxide to release the oxygen before it has a chance to get into your system. Many people experience a bleach taste when the dosage starts to increase. If mixing the hydrogen peroxide in milk, aloe vera or watermelon juice does not help, then try cutting down on the number of drops, but increase the number of glasses you drink.

Cleansing Dosage

Day # Hydrogen Peroxide Concentration Times Per Day
12% 17% 35%
1 6 drops 4 drops 2 drops 3
2 12 drops 8 drops 4 drops 3
3 18 drops 12 drops 6 drops 3
4 24 drops 16 drops 8 drops 3
5 30 drops 20 drops 10 drops 3
6 36 drops 24 drops 12 drops 3
7 42 drops 28 drops 14 drops 3
8 48 drops 32 drops 16 drops 3
9 54 drops 36 drops 18 drops 3
10 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3
11 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3
12 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3
13 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3
14 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3
15 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3
16 60 drops 40 drops 20 drops 3


Maintain the maximum dose for at least one week. For chronic conditions, you can stay on the maximum dosage three times a day for up to three weeks.

Use the table to determine the equivalent number of drops, if you are starting with a different concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Gradually reduce your dosage as follows:
- 20 drops (35% concentration) once every other day for 1 week
- 20 drops (35% concentration) once every third day for 2 weeks
- 20 drops (35% concentration) once every fourth day for 3 weeks.

Maintenance Dosage

This can then be reduced to between 5 and 15 drops (35% concentration) per week based on how one feels. Again, use the table to determine the equivalent number of drops, if you are starting with a different concentration of hydrogen peroxide.

My sister recommended that I get the book by Suzanne Somers on how she cured her own cancer. I just saw the reviews on the book on Amazon.com and this one is right up the alley that I have been advocating with my thread here...

Knockout:Interviews with Doctors who are Curing Cancer--And how to Prevent Getting It in the First Place, by Suzanne Somers, is a must-read.

The book begins with a foreword by Dr. Julian Whitaker who challenges the very paradigm of curing cancer--that is, of removing or destroying it--with surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, Instead, she writes, the challenge to curing cancer lies in stopping the cells from dividing; do that and the cancer disappears.

Somers relates her harrowing story of her gross misdiagnosis that occurred in November 2008. She woke up covered in hives and was rushed to the hospital. She was told that she had cancer throughout her body. The hellishness of the experience prompted this book, because Somers explains that if she--a health advocate, best-selling author and famous person could get so mistreated, it can certainly happen to anyone.

Shockingly, the medical community has made little strides in curing cancer in 60 years, and it will soon be the second leading cause of death in our country.

The purpose of this book is to educate us on the alternatives to the traditional treatment of cancer--surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, and to prevent cancer from happening in the first place. As a cancer survivor, this is a topic close to Somers' heart.

There are chapters on the sad state of Western medicine, and how most of us poison ourselves daily--with drugs, chemicals in our food and more.

The crux of the book are the interviews with alternative doctors. They are divided into two sections--doctors curing cancer and on preventing it in the first place.

Some examples from the interviews:

* One doctor interviewed said that mamograms increase the risk of breast cancer.

* Sugar and artificial sweeteners feed cancer and help it spread.

* Tumeric is one of the most powerful cancer inhibitors. (One note on tumeric--several years ago, I read that there is a significantly low incidence of Alzheimer's Disease in India. Studies proved it was due to the high consumption of tumeric. Lately, I read that tumeric is great in preventing inflammation, increases memory, and a whole bunch of other fantastic qualities. You can buy it in capsule form if you don't eat much of it.)

The final chapter is advice for those who do choose traditional treatment to combat cancer.

The resources include integrative health practitioners listed by state.

I appreciate that Somers interviews a variety of doctors to get all kinds of advice. For those suffering from cancer and for those hoping to prevent it, this book provides solid alternative choices to traditional therapies that don't seem to be working.

This book provides hope. Highly recommend.

Buffalo is a center of cancer research and there is competition between Roswell Park and WNY Urology and the ads they have been airing on the radio & TV have take the pitch of political ads. I know as a fact that whatever specialist you see, he will recommend the procedure that he is involved in. There is obvious bias and you have to weigh your options.

Meanwhile, the alternative cures are being bashed by the FDA, the Cancer Intitute and others, leaving patients the only choice with the radiation, surgery or chemo.

Confronting the prostate cancer dilemma

Amid a turf battle locally, patients are left confused

By Henry L. Davis
Buffalo News Medical Reporter

November 08, 2009, 11:53 PM

study in Europe found that, on average, 1,408 men needed to be screened and 48 needed to be treated to prevent one prostate cancer death.

Patients aren't the only ones wondering what to do.

"It's a conundrum for primary-care doctors. We often don't have the expertise to judge which high-tech referral is best, and patients can get caught between conflicting recommendations," said Dr. Edward A. Stehlik, a Kenmore internist.

In this atmosphere of uncertainty, doctors at Roswell Park and in the community came together in 2001 to try to find common ground on treatment recommendations based on scientific knowledge, not on personal preferences.

But participation dwindled as physicians questioned the value of the guidelines and feared losing control of their patients.

Potential for conflict


In 2008, Western New York Urology Associates opened a new facility for its 19 doctors on Harlem Road in Cheektowaga and expanded into radiation cancer treatment by forming Cancer Care of Western New York. Cancer Care began with two IMRT machines with all the bells and whistles — the devices cost about $2.5 million each — and business is so good that it recently added a third.

The group saw an opportunity to bring urology and radiation treatment under one roof for the convenience of its patients and physicians, said Dr. K. Kent Chevli, a partner in the group.

"We knew IMRT was going to be the future because of its low side-effect profile. But we also wanted an integrated form of prostate cancer care," he said.

Cancer Care of Western New York also offers radiation treatment for other cancers, including those of the breast, head and neck.

In an IMRT treatment, which requires about 40 sessions over eight weeks, doctors aim very small beams of radiation at the tumor from many angles and can control the intensity of each beamlet.

"IMRT allows you to "paint' the radiation dose around the shape of the tumor," said Dr. Dhiren K. Shah, a radiation oncologist at Cancer Care.

Several other IMRT machines operate in the area, including a unit at Roswell Park, and results indicate that they improve upon older devices.

"There is no longer argument over whether a higher radiation dose is better. The question now is who is the appropriate patient," said Dr. James L. Mohler, chairman of urology at Roswell Park and chairman of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network's Prostate Treatment Guidelines Committee.

Mohler and others contend that treatment recommendations have changed in the Buffalo area since Western New York Urology Associates began referring patients to its Cancer Care radiation services instead of to outside radiation oncologists. "All of a sudden, it seems as though surgery has become obsolete, and radiation has taken precedence," he said.

Critics view self-referral as a conflict of interest, potentially influencing doctors to make treatment decisions based on profit. They also point to studies indicating that physicians who own radiation systems and diagnostic scanners order more treatments and scans than those who do not.

"The doctors [at Western New York Urology Associates] are superb and highly ethical. They sincerely believe radiation is the optimal treatment when they offer it. But I also think self-referral can create a perverse incentive," said Dr. Gerald Sufrin, chairman of urology at the University at Buffalo.

Urologists across the country have invested in IMRT. Some doctors see self-referral arrangements as an acceptable practice that boosts income, offsets Medicare cuts in other areas of care, and improves continuity of care to patients.

Advocates of IMRT acknowledge that treatment recommendations are changing, but for a good reason. They say the newer radiation systems are safer in many cases.

"We lay out the issues for patients, the risks and benefits of treatments, and let them decide," Chevli said. "But a lot of patients with prostate cancer are not going to die, and it's difficult to identify who those patients are. That makes it important to choose the least harmful treatment because it may turn out that it was not needed."

Controversy over ads
Like so much of the disagreement in prostate cancer therapy, others wonder whether IMRT's higher-dose radiation will lead to complications later in a patient's life.

The consortium's decline and the private urology group's venture into radiation oncology led Roswell Park to start a major marketing campaign. The state-supported cancer center would not release how much it has spent on TV, radio, billboards, a Web site and even ads in the urinals at HSBC Arena.

One of the billboards sat for months a few hundred feet from the offices of Western New York Urology Associates.

Chevli characterized the campaign as "disappointing" and a "sign of desperation."

Roswell Park also has drawn criticism for failing to offer on its "Prostate Club for Men" Web site adequate information about the uncertainty of screening or the importance of careful decisionmaking.

Officials at the cancer center counter that they started the club in response to patients who complained about being rushed into treatment. They describe the ads as an awareness campaign to encourage men to learn more and to talk about the appropriateness of PSA testing with their physicians.

No easy answers


The competition in urology and potential proliferation of costly IMRT devices have caught the attention of health insurers.

"There has been a shift in practice patterns, although I believe everyone has good intentions. Physicians choose treatments they are most comfortable with, have ready access to or have the most experience with," said Dr. Raghu Ram, senior medical director at BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York.

He and his counterpart at Independent Health, Dr. Thomas J. Foels, said the insurers are trying to understand the shift and determine whether it is leading to improved results for patients. "An overcapacity of machines creates its own demand and not necessarily better outcomes," he said.

Health care reform proposals in Congress call for research comparing the effectiveness of different treatments for the same illness as a way to reduce therapies of little benefit and to control the exploding cost of care.

The trouble is that high-tech treatments constantly evolve, likely making the results of long-term studies outdated. The proposals also don't offer much change in a reimbursement system that encourages more services and procedures, instead of one that rewards doctors for results.

Meanwhile, the next big thing in radiation is around the corner. Proton beam therapy costs significantly more than $100 million for the facility alone, and communities are investing in it even though there isn't enough evidence to say the new therapy is better than IMRT.

With no easy solution to the treatment dilemma, consumer groups support greater efforts to give patients unbiased, science-based information before they make a decision.

"Patients need a clear idea of the evidence or lack of evidence, especially in prostate cancer," said Lyn Paget, spokeswoman for the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making.

Suzanne Somers did an interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and she had some very interesing quotes about cancer and the industry that is more interesting in keeping the cancer industry afloat rather than finding a real cure...

Suzanne Somers speaks out against the conventional cancer industry: mammograms, chemotherapy vs. alternative cures

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

by Mike Adams, the Health Rangerer
Editor of NaturalNews.com


(NaturalNews) As the author of the New York Times bestseller, "Knockout: Interviews with doctors who are curing cancer," Suzanne Somers is making waves across the cancer industry. Her powerful, inspired message of informed hope is reaching millions of readers who are learning about the many safe, effective options for treating cancer that exist outside the realm of the conventional cancer industry (chemotherapy, surgery and radiation).

Recently, Suzanne Somers spoke with NaturalNews editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, to share the inspiration for her new book Knockout. "People are just starving for some new information... for other options, for hope in [treating] cancer," she explained.

The full interview with Suzanne Somers is available as a downloadable MP3 file from NaturalNews.com: http://naturalnews.com/Index-Podcas...

In it, Somers explains why she's so concerned about the current course of the cancer industry:

"In 2010, cancer will be the biggest killer in the world. I fear for everybody walking into the present cancer protocol. It's going to make billions and billions of dollars for the industry, which is already a $200 billion-a-year business. It's going to bankrupt families. It causes expensive deaths. It emaciates people and they die anyway. Why not look into the options that are offered in Knockout? Why not look into Dr. Burzynski out of Houston? Why not look into Dr. Gonzalez in New York or Dr. Forsythe out of Nevada? [They] have a different protocol that doesn't require harsh chemicals or degrading the body."

In the interview, Suzanne also explains the limitations of chemotherapy and why the cancer industry has failed the people:

"There are only three kinds of cancer that respond to chemotherapy: Testicular cancer, childhood leukemia, some lymphomas including Non-Hodgkin's," she says. "For all of us who have raised money marching, going to black-tie fundraisers, we've thrown billions and billions of dollars at pharmaceutical companies and the FDA to find a cure, and it has failed. They do not have a cure."

Mammograms causing more harm than goodod

In the NaturalNews interview, Somers also discusses the problems with mammograms. When asked for her thoughts on the US government's sudden change in position that now says women under 50 should never receive mammograms, Somers explained:

"I have information so shocking in Knockout about mammograms that I have been reluctant on television to even bring it up, because to say anything negative about mammograms is going against the gold standard. So I was thrilled when I saw this report yesterday. Nobody's saying the real truth [about the harm caused by mammograms]. They don't want to open Pandora's Box ...you mean a lot of the women who faithfully had mammograms got their cancer from mammograms?"

What's in the "Knockout" bookok

Suzanne Somers' book presents a collection of interviews from leading doctors who have developed and now apply natural cancer therapies to patients, producing outstanding results. To gather information for her book, Somers explains, "I called doctors, I interviewed their patients, I talked to hundreds of people, I interviewed science writers, PhDs, neuroscientists, nutritionists... even the scientific advisory board of Life Extension."

And rather than preaching to people about what they should or shouldn't do, Somers' book simply provides new information and new options to men and women who want to know more before making a potentially deadly decision about chemotherapy. "You've got to get smart and connect the dots and ask yourself, with all the money going into [conventional] cancer, do they have an answer? The answer is no. We're on our own, so let's look at these independent doctors who are having success," Somers says.

The information presented in Somers' book, not surprisingly, has raised the ire of the conventional cancer industry and all their powerful allies (including more than a few organizations in the mainstream media). That's why Somers' message has been viciously attacked by conventional cancer and chemotherapy pushers who see the information presented in Knockout as a threat to their authority (and repeat business). "My message interferes with Big Business's bottom line," explains Somers. "But until what Big Business is doing is good for us, and for the betterment of our health and mankind, then I think people have to speak out about it."

And she's speaking out with a powerful, inspired voice. Listen to the full interview with NaturalNews editor Mike Adams here:

After hearing the interview, pick up the book yourself at your local book retailer or online. Here's the Amazon.com link: http://astore.amazon.com/wsdm-20/de...

"The war on cancer is a dismal failure," says Somers. "If this were a military project, the people in charge would be fired. It's not working."

But there are real solutions for cancer, and there are doctors delivering "alternative" cancer treatments right now that are producing astonishing results (putting conventional chemotherapy to shame). Suzanne's book lists a wealth of resources where you can find more information about natural cancer treatments and the clinics that offer them.

Here's a short list of some of the health experts she mentions (many more are listed in her book):

Do you know someone just diagnosed with cancer?

If so, send them the link to this article. Make sure they listen to this interview with Suzanne Somers. Information is power, and by providing your family members, friends or coworkers with more information and more options, you are empowering them with precisely the kind of information that might very well save their lives.

Chemotherapy is extremely toxic to the human body. It causes permanent damage to the brain, heart and kidneys. Mammograms harm ten times as many women as they help. Don't your loved ones deserve to know about the options available right now that can treat and reverse cancer without destroying their health?

That's what you'll learn in this interview and in Suzanne Somers' "Knockout" book. Inform yourself, and help empower others with knowledge -- the kind of knowledge the cancer industry would prefer people never had access to.

Our diets are killing us! With the way the western civilization eats, its no wonder that cancer rates and other diseases are soaring. With people trying to rush through their busy schedules, they don't have time to carefully plan healthy meals, so instead, they opt for the fast food chains. But it doesn't stop there. The processed foods are ingrained in our society. All the grocery stores and even restaurants use food that is processed and packaged in a way that is detrimental to anyone's health. There are not too organic restaurants in our country, and most of the produce sold in stores were grown on farms that use insecticides and artificial fertilizers. Thus the toxins of this chemical farming enter our bodies when we eat this food.

There is a growing trend towards organically grown food. That is a good start. However, with the prices being much higher than the chemfarm foods sold, people opt to save money and continue to pollute their bodies with the toxic produce.

From my studies on cancer cures, I have found many sources that insist that the best cancer treatment starts with a radical change in one's diet. This is even true for those who choose the orthodox treatments of radiation or chemotherapy. It is even more important for the alternative treatments, which rely on vitamins and nutrients. Those therapies go hand in hand with a balanced diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables. Most meats are eliminated, such as chicken, turkey and beef. Dairy products are also mostly cut out.

Here's a good article from Once-Censored Cancure Cures, by Michael Cutler, M.D...

Four Principles to Healing Cancer Naturally!

More than 80% of cancer patients report using some form of complementary and alternativemedicine (CAM) treatment in the U.S. To understand what it takes to be able to achieve
healing with natural methods, you must first understand the principles of this genuine healing. It is not a matter of finding a few great supplements and popping pills in hopes that the pill will work.

Instead, it is a fundamental shift in lifestyle, which takes much more than a few supplements. Therefore, I will cover the basic principles behind natural cancer treatments. You will find
that there is no one specific protocol that is the "best," but there are fundamental principles that must be applied in each treatment. I will start with the first basic healing principle—the foods you eat everyday.

Principle #1: Consume an Ultra-Healthy Diet

Did you know that approximately 40% of deaths in cancer patients are a result of malnutrition to the non-cancerous (e.g. normal) cells of the body? It's true! Your diet determines your ability to grow healthy cells. If your diet is lacking essential nutrients, you're creating the perfect environment for cancer to thrive!

And a surefire way to encourage cancer is by following the diet of the average American.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, each year the average American consumes:

120 orders of French fries.
190 candy bars.
150 slices of pizza.
45 large bags of potato chips.
120 pastries or desserts.
566 cans of soft drinks.
And a whopping 150 pounds of sugar!

As you can see, the average American is on the road to health-disaster! As a general rule for healthy living, you should consume a whole foods diet. However, if you have cancer, to keep your cells healthy, a whole foods diet is essential!

Whole Foods and Super Foods

Every food you eat is either healthy or in some way encourages cancer development. Unless you can only absorb nutrients through an I.V., your diet in fighting cancer is as important as all other natural cancer therapies combined!

Here's a list of unhealthy foods that encourage cancer:

Trans Fatty Acids—Found in margarine, french fries, greasy foods with a long shelf life, processed foods, aspartame (used in diet sodas, NutraSweet®, Equal®, etc.), MSG, and
polyunsaturated oils (such as corn oil and canola oil).

Foods that feed cancer cells and/or microbes in the cancer cells and body—refined sugar, refined flour, soda pop, etc.

Foods that cause a low level immune hypersensitivity, reducing your ability to fight cancer— beef, turkey, chicken, lamb, pork, and sea bottom dwellers.

If you want to get well, build your diet around fresh salads, vegetables, juiced grasses, and sprouts for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eat plenty of raw whole foods (I'll discuss these in more detail later in this chapter), unrefined complex carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats from vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains (careful with breads!), nuts, and seeds.

Below is a list of "super foods" with the most scientific evidence of cancer-fighting properties:

Asparagus
Almonds
Beets
Berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
Broccoli
Cabbage
Carrots
Cauliflower
Chlorella and Spirulina (blue-green algae)
Citrus fruit juices (oranges, lemons, and limes)
Green tea
Garlic
Grapes (purple)
Lentils (beans and peas)
Oats
Omega-3 oils (see flaxseed oil and cottage cheese in the Budwig Diet)
Onions
Peppers
Pineapples
Pumpkin seeds
Spinach and other leafy lettuces
Sprouts (wheat grass, barley grass, and other sprouted grains)
Tomatoes
Walnuts
Wild salmon
Yogurt (farm fresh plain)

Raw Foods

Uncooked foods are the original nutrient source given to mankind. When cooking, curing, processing, refining, and adding chemicals to preserve and color food was introduced, the cancer rates and chronic degenerative illnesses rose accordingly.

Anyone with cancer must avoid nearly all animal meat (e.g. no cooked meat, fat, eggs, milk, etc.) and all refined sugars and starches. Don't worry—you won't starve not eating these foods.
There is plenty of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in predominately fresh raw fruits and vegetables with their juices, seeds, nuts, legumes, sprouts, and spices to help you feel well and heal.

Vegetarian sources of higher protein include soy, beans, peas, lentils, nuts, and seeds. Then add to these a small amount (10% to 30%) of cooked foods when needed and malnutrition and wasting will be minimized. If you choose to eat meat, eat organic eggs and mercury-free fish in small amounts (less than 10% in meals will not promote cancer).

Very compelling scientific evidence that meat and sugars contribute to cancer is the work of T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. and his colleagues in the The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet,Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health. In reference to breast, prostate, and colon cancer—which represents 40% of all newly diagnosed cancers—their research revealed that high dairy and meat consumption, low dietary fiber, and highlyrefined carbohydrate intake each significantly promoted cancer as mentioned earlier in this report.

5 Reasons to Eat Raw Foods

1. Raw foods supply their own digestive enzymes allowing your body greater capacity to focus on energy production, cell health, elimination of metabolic byproducts, and nerve and hormone function.

2. Micronutrients are in optimal proportions and quantities in uncooked whole foods. Micronutrients are vitamins, minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants, and healthy (essential) oils. These
give your cells the ability to absorb nutrients, convert glucose into glycogen or energy, excrete toxins, regulate muscle action, and fire up the nervous system.

3. Raw foods maintain an optimal alkaline environment out in the tissues where the cancer is. Acid tissue is where cancer is most promoted.

4. Raw foods are abundant in plant fibers such as cellulose (lignin, pectin, gum), mucilage and bran. These serve to increase peristalsis in the gut, which increases the efficiency of digestion and lowers meat putrefication, oil spoilage, and carbohydrate fermentation. This also has the effect of regulating glucose absorption, chelating minerals (putting them into the correct electrical state for absorption), and aids in vitamins B and K synthesis.

5. Raw foods also contain natural antimicrobials, plant hormones, and cancer-fighting phytochemicals. Some of the cancer-fighting plant chemicals were discussed earlier.


Juicing

There are two main advantages to juicing vegetables and fruits. First, juicing readily gives you the nutrients of a fruit or vegetable with little digestion required by the body. The obstructing fibers are mostly removed. Secondly, you can consume far more vegetables in less time. Keep in mind
however, that juicing doesn't take the place of the fruits that have cancer-fighting properties in the skin and seeds, like grapes for example. You still want to get the whole vegetable and fruit in your diet to complement the added nutrients from juicing. However, juicing will energize you and your
cells with the micronutrients they need.

Take carrots for example. Carrots are the mainstay of juicing and contain high amounts of cancer-fighting bioflavonoid compounds called carotenoids. They also contain alpha carotene, beta carotene, and vitamin E. Other raw vegetables and their known anti-cancer phytochemicals you should j

Just found another natural cure for cancer. It is a fruit called Paw Paw and it grows on trees here in North America. I am very interested in this fruit and may order the product to test it out. Here's an article about the miracle fruit Paw Paw...

http://alternativecancer.us/pawpaw.htm

Paw Paw Alternative Cancer Treatment

Paw Paw extract contains (among other active ingredients) acetogenins which modulate the production of ATP** (adenosine triphosphate) in mitochondria of cancer cells. This reduces the growth of blood vessels that nourish cancer cells. It also inhibits the growth of MDR (multiple drug resistance) cells. No other alternative or conventional cancer treatment (except treatments from trees similar to Paw Paw) has shown any effectiveness against MDR cells.

Paw Paw is a cousin of the graviola, guanabana, and soursop trees. However, the acetogenins extracted from Paw Paw are more active against cancer than those extracted from these other sources.

Multiple Drug Resistant Cells

Most tumors contain a small percentage, approximately 2%, of multiple drug-resistant cells (MDR cells). Chemo is not effective against these cells. After the first round of chemo, if the chemo is effective, all of the cells that are not MDR, are destroyed. Since this accounts for the vast majority of the tumor mass, the tumor will appear to be effectively destroyed. However, the MDR cells remain and start to multiply. Eventually, a new tumor is formed that is entirely MDR. The next time chemo is used, none of the cells will be destroyed because they are all MDR. Paw Paw and Graviola are the only cancer treatment that have shown effectiveness against MDR cells.

Development

Paw Paw research was performed at Purdue College by Jerry McLaughlin. The majority of the funding (20 years and about 5 million dollars) for this research was provided by NCI. Jerry McLaughlin now works with Nature Sunshine who manufacture Paw Paw twig extract in capsule form.

Pharmacology

One of the effects of Paw Paw is to reduce the ATP energy in each cell of our body. Our cells have an electrical potential that effects how the cell processes energy producing substances mostly blood sugar and oxygen from our blood supply (the red area in the graphic below).

By reducing this voltage level from 70 to 110 mv to something in the 50 mv region, normal cells can still function. However, cancer and viral cells cannot process energy at this low voltage level and start to starve. The process of starving is a slower process than being poisoned which is why Paw Paw works slower than chemo. When Paw Paw does not work, it is usually because it is not absorbed sufficiently into the cells of the body to cause this voltage reduction. Both Cantron and Protocel are designed to cause this voltage reduction. If Paw Paw does not work for a person, Cantron or Protocel may work. The pharmacology of Cantron and Protocel have an expanded explanation for the role ATP energy reduction in cancer treatment, for this text see the developer's explanation summarized by the webmaster Paul Winter .

Blood Brain Barrier

Paw Paw is one of the few alternative cancer treatments that can pass the blood/brain barrier. The other alternative cancer treatments that can cross this barrier are Cantron and Protocel.

Effectiveness

Paw Paw seems to work on all types of cancers. An informal study of 100 cancer patients showed that Paw Paw was effective in half the cases. This is most interesting since Paw Paw seems to work the same way that Cancell (Cantron and Protocel) works and Cancell also has a 50% effectiveness as demonstrated in another informal study. However, Paw Paw gets higher marks in the effectiveness because, in the laboratory, it inhibits the growth of MDR (multiple drug resistance) cells. No other cancer treatment including chemo has shown any effectiveness against MDR cells. Jerry McLaughlin is in the negotiation process for starting clinical trials in conjunction with Harvard University. However, no formal clinical trials have yet occurred. For more on MDR cells, see the "Multiple Drug Resistant Cells" section above.

I am now doing research on the fruit Paw Paw and its effectiveness as an alternative and natural cancer treatment. Here is from the Cancer Tutor site...

http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Graviola.html

Graviola Tree and Paw Paw Treatments

How It Works


These products come from trees in the tropical areas of South and North America. They kill cancer cells as a minimum, but may have other affects on cancer. Paw Paw is known to work by blocking ATP production and thus reduce the voltage of the cancer cell to the point it falls apart (apoptosis or programmed cell death). Because Paw Paw and graviola are cousins, I assume that is also the way graviola works. They are also known to build the immunity system.

Graviola Tree and Paw Paw Tree

This is one of those treatments for cancer that is fairly new, meaning it has only recently found its way onto the internet. Nevertheless, there have been a lot of scientific studies on these two products. At the current time most of the articles for Graviola and cancer come from a single source - the Health Sciences Institute (see the links below), though there are a growing number of independent articles.

I recommend graviola on the basis of several scientific articles, several testimonials, and several comments by practitioners (mostly from Brazil), however, Paw Paw is actually stronger than graviola at treating cancer. Paw Paw is the more potent of the two because of its more sophisticated and larger molecular structures. Graviola is sometimes called "Brazilian Paw Paw," which can cause some confusion.

Paw Paw is clearly more powerful than graviola when treating cancer, if the quality of the processing is comparable. However, I would take freshly cut graviola over bottled Paw Paw (but American's can't get freshly cut graviola). Graviola only has single ring compounds, while the Paw Paw's acetogenins have several double ring compounds (e.g. bullatacin) which makes Paw Paw much more powerful.

Paw Paw works (and I assume graviola as well) by slowing down or stopping the production of ATP. This in turn lowers the voltage of the cell. For normal cells, there is plenty of ATP, thus lowering the level of ATP has no effect on the cell. However, with cancer cells, due to the way they create energy (by fermentation), ATP is far more critical.

When the ATP level, and the energy of the cell level, drops to a critical level the cell falls apart. The residual pieces of the dead cancer cell are called "lysing" and I assume are similiar to other apoptosis (programmed cell death) killed cells. If that is the case, then part of the lysing is literally "eaten" by other cells (called: phagocytosed).

However, because the cancer cells in a cancer patient are frequently clusted together, a large amount of lysing can be created within a cancer patient such that high levels of clustered lysing cannot be eaten by surrounding cells. Such a situation is especially dangerous for lung cancer patients and brain cancer patients where a clustered amount of lysing can be very dangerous.

Here is some technical information on graviola:

•"The Annonaceous acetogenins discovered in graviola thus far include: annocatalin, annohexocin, annomonicin, annomontacin, annomuricatin A & B, annomuricin A thru E, annomutacin, annonacin, annonacinone, annopentocin A thru C, cis-annonacin, cis-corossolone, cohibin A thru D, corepoxylone, coronin, corossolin, corossolone, donhexocin, epomuricenin A & B, gigantetrocin, gigantetrocin A & B, gigantetrocinone, gigantetronenin, goniothalamicin, iso-annonacin, javoricin, montanacin, montecristin, muracin A thru G, muricapentocin, muricatalicin, muricatalin, muri-catenol, muricatetrocin A & B muricatin D, muricatocin A thru C muricin H, muricin I, muricoreacin, murihexocin 3, murihexocin A thru C, murihexol, murisolin, robustocin, rolliniastatin 1 & 2, saba-delin, solamin, uvariamicin I & IV, xylomaticin.

http://www.naturalpharmacy.com/learn-more/graviola

Graviola, like its cousin Paw Paw, is known to greatly enhace the effectiveness of another alternative cancer treatment - Protocel. However, generally it is recommended that Protocel not be taken with graviola or Paw Paw. There are exceptions, see my Protocel article for more information:
Protocel Article

Because of the similarity of Paw Paw and graviola to Protocel, there is no doubt in my mind that in order to maximize the effectiveness of these products, they should be taken in exactly the same way as Protocel. In other words, every 6 hours, EXACTLY - 24 hours a day.

I would strongly recommend studying the Protocel article linked to above for information that will help you take these products.

Paw Paw has been shown to kill multiple-drug resistant (MDR) cells, which result from someone taking chemotherapy. This is critical to understand because when a person on orthodox treatments comes out of remission into regression, a high percentage of their cancer cells are MDR cells. This would REQUIRE the use of Paw Paw to treat these patients.

Paw Paw is not toxic according to studies with beagles (dogs). It appears to be impossible to 'overdose', 32 capsules 4x/day were non toxic because it caused vomiting.

Paw Paw gravitates towards cells that use a lot of energy and then cuts off their energy supply. Since cancer cells use 10-17 times as much energy as a normal cell, Paw Paw acts on cancer cells. It is the same mechanism that made it so useful as a parasite cleanse and to kill hair lice.

It is also the reason that pregnant women should not take Paw Paw. Paw Paw could see some of the fast growing cells in the fetus as high energy cells. In addition, some of the cells in a fetus are very similar to cancer cells (i.e. the "trophoblastic" cells), so pregnant women should ALWAYS be careful what they take for cancer.

If no cancer, parasite, or other high energy users are available, Paw Paw may gravitate towards fast growing cells lining the digestive and intestinal system walls. This is why the main manufacturer, Nature's Sunshine, strongly cautions against long term use for non-cancer patients. Some people with cancer have reported digestion distress such as nausea. For this reason it is recommended to take Paw Paw with food.

Warnings For Both Products

In the past, it was thought that the effectiveness of Paw Paw, like Protocel, was damaged by taking antioxidants with Paw Paw. However, new research has shown that this is not the case. I quote from an email I received:


•"The head of NSP research, Dr. Bill Keller, provided Paw Paw with supporting products to a research oncologist and his laboratory to test with actual cultures. Several of Nature's Sunshine strong antioxidants were also provided. The research personnel concluded overwhelmingly that there was no negative prevention of Paw Paw action as a result of the antioxidants."

Important Note: The above email is not the end of the story. Nature's Sunshine researchers are still looking into this issue because there are some antioxidants that DO increase ATP energy, which would conflict with the use of Paw Paw, graviola and Protocel. I will put the results of their research on this web site as soon as I get more information!!

Also, I do not know which antioxidants may conflict with graviola. If you buy graviola, check with the vendor for recommendations.

No one with Parkinsons Disease should take Paw Paw or graviola unless alkaloid-free preparations are used. There is also a possibility of allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Supercharging This Treatment

Paw Paw is generally considered stronger than graviola. This does not mean that graviola should not be used. Cat's Claw and Ellagic Acid seem to be items that people like to combine with Graviola. However, if you take Cat's Claw make sure you take a product like Samento, which is a TOA-free Cat's Claw.

What if the best cure for preventing cancer is something that is absolutely free? All these supplements and vitamins are a great start, but in fighting the actual cause of cancer there may be a cure that we have access to every second of the day. What is this magnificiant cure for cancer that even doctors and scientists don't know about? It's breathing! What's more, it's the way we breathe that could be causing cancer and other diseases.

In my extensive search to find natural cures for cancer and other diseases, I found one this weekend that is related to what we do constantly...breathe. Since I have asthma, I wanted to get off my steroids and find a natural cure or treatment. My company is dropping our HMO and going with a less expensive consumer-driven HSA, I will really have to watch my prescriptions. In fact, I'm trying to ween myself off my asthma medication as I will most likely have to pay the majority of the cost. I take Advair, which I see costs around $180 for a month's prescription.

Here's a part of a ebook on breathing exercises called "The Buteyko Technique" which is supposed to also help cancer...

Cancer

Let us consider some facts about the appearance, growth and development of malignant tumours; their spread to distant tissues and resistance to standard methods of treatment. What is the abnormal background, which is rarely discussed in popular books and articles about cancer, but which is known to professional oncologists?

It has been known for decades that malignant cells normally and constantly appear and exist in any human organism due to billions of cell divisions and mutations. These abnormal cells, in normal conditions, are quickly detected by the immune system and destroyed. However, the work of macrophages, enzymes and other agents of the immune system is severely hampered under the conditions of hypoxia. That was the conclusion of various studies. For example, Dr. Rockwell from Yale University School of Medicine studied malignant changes at the cellular level and wrote, "The physiologic effects of hypoxia and the associated micro environmental inadequacies increase mutation rates, select for cells deficient in normal pathways of programmed cell death, and contribute to the development of an increasingly invasive, metastatic phenotype" (Rockwell, 1997). The title of this publication is "Oxygen delivery: implications for the biology and therapy of solid tumors".

Summarizing the results of numerous studies, Ryan with colleagues chose the following title of their article, "The hypoxia inducible factor-1 gene is required for embryogenesis and solid tumor formation" (Ryan et al, 1998).

In normal conditions, even a group of hypoxic cells dies (or is easily destroyed by the immune cells). What about cells in malignant tumours? Researchers from Gray Laboratory Cancer Research Trust (Mount Vernon Hospital, Northwood, Middlesex, UK) concluded,

"Cells undergo a variety of biological responses when placed in hypoxic conditions, including activation of signalling pathways that regulate proliferation, angiogenesis and death. Cancer cells have adapted these pathways, allowing tumours to survive and even grow under hypoxic conditions..." (Chaplin et al, 1986).

Moreover, American scientists from Harvard Medical School noted that "... Hypoxia may thus produce both treatment resistance and a growth advantage" (Schmaltz et al, 1998).

There is so much professional evidence about fast growth of tumours in the condition of severe hypoxia, that a large group of Californian researchers recently wrote a paper "Hypoxia - inducible factor-1 is a positive factor in solid tumor growth" (Ryan, 2000). As an echo, a British oncologist from the Weatherhill Institute of Molecular Medicine (Oxford) went further with a manuscript "Hypoxia - a key regulatory factor in tumour growth" (Harris, 2002).

When the solid tumour is large enough and the disease progresses, cancer starts to invade other tissues. This process is called metastasis. Does poor oxygenation influence it? "...Therefore, tissue hypoxia has been regarded as a central factor for tumor aggressiveness and metastasis" (Kunz & Ibrahim, 2003) was the conclusion of German researchers from University of Rostock and University of Leipzig.

Since dozens of medical and physiological studies yielded the same result, what about just a title again? "Tumor oxygenation predicts for the likelihood of distant metastases in human soft tissue sarcoma" (Brizel et al, 1996). The harder one breathes, the faster cancer invades.

Probably, the reader now can guess about the effect of cancer treatment and the chances of survival for those who suffer from severe chronic hyperventilation. Indeed, "... tumour hypoxia is associated with poor prognosis and resistance to radiation therapy" (Chaplin et al, 1986).

"Low tissue oxygen concentration has been shown to be important in the response of human tumors to radiation therapy, chemotherapy and other treatment modalities. Hypoxia is also known to be a prognostic indicator, as hypoxic human tumors are more biologically aggressive and are more likely to recur locally and metastasize" (Evans & Koch, 2003).

"Clinical evidence shows that tumor hypoxia is an independent prognostic indicator of poor patient outcome. Hypoxic tumors have altered physiologic processes, including increased regions of angiogenesis, increased local invasion, increased distant metastasis and altered apoptotic programs†(Denko et al, 2003).

Could breathing influence the tumors and if so, how? The authors of one of the studies cited above mused about the origins of all these problems, “Surprisingly little is known, however, about the natural history of such hypoxic cells†(Chaplin et al, 1986). Why could they appear? What is the source of tissue hypoxia? We can again suggest that our breathing does influence the breathing process of all body tissues, tumours included.

Is there any experimental evidence indicating the usefulness of CO2 for malignant tumours?

During the last decade, there has been a steady progress in the investigation and application of CO2-O2 gas mixtures called "carbogen" in clinical practice. Carbogen breathing is usually applied for several hours during administration of certain anti-cancer medications. Let us review some results in this area and the reasons for carbogen application.

Several studies from England and the USA found that breathing various carbogen mixtures significantly improves oxygenation of tumours. The general opinion of these researchers is that "Perfusion insufficiency and the resultant hypoxia are recognized as important mechanisms of resistance to anticancer therapy. Modification of the tumour microenvironment to increase perfusion and oxygenation of tumours may improve on the efficacy of these treatments..." (Powell et al, 1997).

A large group of British scientists from the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre revealed that when 14 cancer patients breathed various carbogen mixtures (with 2%, 3.5% and 5% CO2 content, the rest was O2) "arterial oxygen tension increased at least three-fold from basal values" (Baddeley et al, 2000). They also found that "There were no significant changes in the respiratory rate, heart rate and blood pH. The results suggest that 2% CO2 in O2 enhances arterial oxygen levels to a similar extent as 3.5% and 5% CO2 and that it is well tolerated" (Baddeley et al, 2000).

Another group of British researchers directly measured oxygen pressure in cancer cells and concluded, "This study confirms that breathing 2% CO2 and 98% O2 is well tolerated and effective in increasing tumour oxygenation" (Powell et al, 1999).

These results generate the following question. Which gas, CO2 or O2 is the main contributor to increased oxygenation and by how much? The amounts of both gases in mixtures were much higher than the amounts of O2 and CO2 in normal air.

Let us, first, consider the influence of O2. There are two O2 states namely O2 that is combined with haemoglobin and dissolved O2, which can increase oxygenation of the arterial blood. As we considered in Chapter 1, the saturation of haemoglobin with O2 under normal conditions (or when breathing normal air) is about 98%. Increased O2 pressure can raise this value to almost 100%. This would cause about a 2% increase in arterial blood in comparison with the initial value. In addition, when patients breathe carbogen mixtures more O2 can be dissolved in the arterial blood (this O2 is not bound to red blood cells). In normal conditions the contribution of dissolved O2 is about 1.5% of the total blood O2 as the remaining 98.5% O2 is combined with haemoglobin. Increasing O2 almost five times increases total arterial O2 content by about 6% in relation to the initial normal value.

Hence, increasing the O2 component in breathing air (up to almost 100%) causes about 8% increase in total O2 content in arterial blood.

Similarly, British researchers, as mentioned above reported "arterial oxygen tension increased at least three-fold from basal values" (Baddeley et al, 2000). How was it possible to get such a large increase in tissue oxygenation (about 200%) if arterial blood could carry only about 8% more O2 during carbogen breathing in comparison with initial conditions?

The remaining increase in tissue oxygenation could be due to larger CO2 values, which shift the Bohr curves down and enhance O2 release from haemoglobin cells, and due to the dilation of blood vessels. Therefore, the increase in oxygenation of tissues is mainly due to the larger CO2 content.

Indeed, the British professionals decided “to assess the relative contributions of carbon dioxide and oxygen to this response and the tumour oxygenation state, the response of GH3 prolactinomas to 5% CO2/95% air, carbogen and 100% O2†(Baddeley et al, 2000). That was done using magnetic resonance imaging and PO2 histography. They found that,

“A 10-30% image intensity increase was observed during 5% CO2/95% air breathing, consistent with an increase in tumour blood flow, as a result of CO2-induced vasodilation, reducing the concentration of deoxyhaemoglobin in the blood. Carbogen caused a further 40-50% signal enhancement, suggesting an additional improvement due to increase blood oxygenation. A small 5-10% increase was observed in response to 100% O2, highlighting the dominance of CO2-induced vasodilation in the carbogen response†(Baddeley et al, 2000).

It is not oxygen, but carbon dioxide that is the substance responsible for the main improvement in oxygenation of tissues.

Natural Alternatives For Fighting Cancer That Your Doctor Won't Tell You About

By Dr. Michael Cutler

• Aug 20th, 2008 • Category: General Health, Healthy Living, Immunity

If you or someone you know is faced with finding an oncologist, be sure to find one experienced in using natural healing therapies—not just chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. As a general rule, conventional medicine doesn’t take time to treat the underlying causes of cancer.

In our “quick-fix†society, it’s very rare that natural alternatives to chemotherapy, radiation or surgery are even considered. And few oncologists are willing to learn how to integrate natural medicine with conventional cancer-fighting treatments! But rest assured, you CAN experience the power of natural medicine and get the treatment you need to help your body fight off cancer.

As a further aid in your quest for true healing, here’s a list of little-known natural cancer fighters proven to help your body win the war against cancer:

â–  Nattokinase. Improves blood flow and limits the anaerobic conditions where cancer thrives. Nattokinase is a proteolytic enzyme with the unique ability to increase oxygen to tissues by keeping vessels from clotting.

â–  Graviola and Paw Paw. Found in tropical areas of North and South America, these powerful extracts are known to kill cancer by blocking adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production of the cancer cell so it becomes programmed to die (called apoptosis).

■ Green Tea Extract. Proven to slow down cancer growth. Scientists found that two chemicals in green tea—epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) and epigallocatechin (EGC)—turn off a key molecule that tobacco relies upon to cause cancer. These chemicals are close molecular cousins to bio-flavonoids, which are known to help prevent cancer. It was also found that two to three cups of green tea has enough active EGCG to bind to a protein found on the surface of lung cancer cells and dramatically slow their growth.

■ Grape Seed Extract. Proven to reduce free radical damage. It’s also known to prevent damage to human liver cells by chemotherapy medications.

■ Resveratrol. Found in the skin of grapes, this compound has significant anti-cancer properties. The FDA has authorized “trans-Resveratrol†to be registered as a new investigational “neutraceutical†drug for cancer treatment research.

■ Vitalzym™ or Wobenzyme™. When taken in high doses, these proteolytic enzymes “digest†cancer tissues and break down fibrin molecules in the blood stream.

â–  Blood Root (Sanguinarine). Kills human skin cancer cells by apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner without affecting normal human skin cells. The juice extracted from this root is applied topically.

â–  Amino Acid Therapy. L-Lysine, L-Proline and L-Arginine, as first presented by Dr. Matthias Rath, have been shown to interfere with the growth of cancer cells.

â–  Chlorella and Spirulina. These blue green algaes are high in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals.

â–  Black Walnut, Sweet Wormwood (Artemisinin) and Cloves. Together, this powerful trio cleanses parasites which are microscopic in many cancer patients.

â–  Coenzyme Q10. This life-giving enzyme is a potent antioxidant and generator of ATP in normal cells.

â–  Essiac Tea. Promotes cell repair, effective nutrient assimilation and elimination of cellular waste. The four main herbs that make up essiac tea are burdock root, slippery elm bark, sheep sorrel and Indian rhubarb root.

â–  Ellagic Acid. Inhibits tumor growth caused by carcinogens. This powerful antioxidant comes from various berries, walnuts, pecans and pomegranates.

â–  Curcumin. Proven to kill cancerous cells and slow damage to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in healthy cells. This powerful antioxidant is also the active ingredient of the Indian curry spice turmeric.

■ Pau d’ Arco. Powerful pain reliever and cancer fighter found in the bark of a South American tree. Studies show Pau d’arco killed lung cancer cells in the laboratory experiments and slowed down cancer growth in mice.

â–  Modified Citrus Pectin. Binds to cancer cells inhibiting their ability to aggregate and metastasize.

â–  Yeast Fighters. Olive leaf extract, whole leaf aloe vera extract, oil of oregano and grapefruit extract (seed) all fight yeast, an underlying culprit to immune weakness.
Try these natural cancer fighters now to help you wage war against that powerful enemy known as cancer. You’ll find that your health may improve, which will make your attack stronger. Don't wait to start!

With our fast-paced lives and the lack of time to prepare and eat healthy meals, it is imperative that we find ways to supplement our lack of certain vitamins and elements needed to stay healthy. The fast food and food processing industries are poisoning us, filling our bodies with cancer causing agents and short changing our bodies with the needed nutriants for a long and healthy life.

I decided to look up a list of all the antioxidants as a handy list for me and anyone else interested in keeping our bodies in balance in this polluted sea of food that surrounds us these days. Here is the list of antioxidants that are essential in our diets...

http://www.antioxi.net/list.html

List of antioxidants

Carotenoids


Plants are constantly being bombarded by sunlight and ultraviolet rays. Since they can’t just go inside or erect a parasol when they’ve had enough sun, they produce strong antioxidants to protect their cells against cell damage from ultraviolet radiation and other environmental carcinogens. It is a potent group of antioxidants, and having a daily intake of them is an important disease-preventing measure. Several hundred of these antioxidants are known to exist, and the most potent and beneficial ones are these six: Alpha-carotene Beta-carotene Cryptoxanthin Lycopene Lutein Zeaxathin

Flavonoids

Flavonoids are antioxidant phytochemicals that form the water-soluble colors of vegetables, fruits, grains, leaves, and bark. Flavonoids come in many forms, and different plants contain different concentrations of them. Some flavonoids may have up to fifty times more antioxidant activity than vitamins C and E. Impressively, flavonoids from red grapes are more than a thousand times more powerful than vitamin E in inhibiting oxidation of human LDL cholesterol. A steady intake of flavonoids can do a lot for your health.
Catechins
Reserveratrol
Proanthocyanidins

Isoflavones

Isoflavones are found in soybeans and other legumes. In the body, they are converted to phytoestrogens (plant estrogens), compounds that may help inhibit the growth of hormone-dependent cancers and other cancers. In addition, they lower total cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease.
Genistein
Daidzein

Vitamins
Vitamins are etc
Vitamin A
Vitamin C
Vitamin E

Minerals

All minerals are antioxidants and must be acquired through the diet, because none of them are produced by the body. Minerals are exceedingly important for the proper functioning of the body and the assimilation of vitamins. Selenium and zinc are the two most powerful mineral antioxidants.
Selenium
Zinc

Allium vegetables

The genus allium encompasses over 500 plants, but the best antioxidants in this group are garlic, onions, shallots, and leeks. These vegetables contain flavonoids, vitamin C, selenium, and sulfur compounds that have potent cancer-fighting properties. In addition, they may help prevent heart attacks stroke by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and preventing blood clots. They benefit the liver by activating detoxification enzyme systems, and may be helpful in preventing allergies and asthma. These vegetables retain their antioxidant properties even when cooked, and odorless garlic caps are available.

Bilberry

This potent antioxidant, which is an herb, is also called European blueberry. It contains anthocyanides, which keep capillaries strong, protect against cataracts and night blindness, and improve circulation. As well as having anti-carcinogenic effects, it inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Bilberry supplements are widely available, either as pills or in liquid form.

Coenzyme-Q10
This antioxidant is also known as ubiquinone, since it is present in every living cell. It provides the cells with energy to effectively carry out their functions. Without this antioxidant, our cells would simply not work. The levels of Q10 fall with increasing age, a fact which may have impact on the diseases and illnesses we associate with age. Infection, stress, and poor eating habits can also affect the body’s ability to produce sufficient amounts of this necessary enzyme. Q10 shares many of its antioxidant properties with vitamin E. It has been shown to increase energy, improve heart function, help reverse gum disease, and strengthen the immune system. It may also slow the deterioration rate in Parkinson’s disease, and is the only known substance to have that effect. Coenzyme Q10 has many other positive effects and is a most valuable antioxidant ally in disease prevention and anti-aging. Coenzyme Q10 is found in meat, dairy products, eggs, cereals and vegetables. Storage, processing and cooking significantly reduces the Q10 content of these foods, so supplementing your diet with additional Q10 is a good idea.

Cruciferous vegetables

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cale etc. are very rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and other flavonoids, and also phytochemicals called indoles and sulforaphane. Indoles inactivate estrogens that promote the growth of tumors, particularly in the female breast. Sulforaphane stimulates cells to produce cancer-fighting enzymes. This combination of antioxidants makes cruciferous vegetables potent cancer-preventers. Cruciferous vegetables may not be among the most popular foods, but many of their beneficial antioxidant effects may be obtained through supplements.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba is a potent antioxidant herb which is best known for improving circulation. It helps increase the blood supply to the brain, the heart, and all other body parts. It strengthens the mental processes and the ability to concentrate, as well as ease muscle pain and improve male potency. For this last reason, Ginkgo Biloba is sometimes known as “nature’s Viagra”. Interestingly, this antioxidant may improve perception and social functioning in victims of Alzheimer’s disease. Like many other antioxidants, it protects cells from free radicals and may therefore prevent cancer and slow the aging process. Macular degeneration of the eyes may be prevented and treated with Ginkgo Biloba, which also has been shown to work as an antidepressant. Ginkgo Biloba is widely available as a supplement.

Glutathione

This antioxidant is produced in the liver from amino acids. It protects cells throughout the body, and may help prevent cancer, especially of the liver. Glutathione is beneficial as an immune system booster, a detoxifier of heavy metals and drugs, and may also protect against radiation poisoning and negative effects of smoking and alcohol abuse. It also functions as an anti-inflammatory treatment of allergies and arthritis. Glutathione is found in vegetables and fruit, but cooking will significantly reduce its potency. Taking it as a supplement is a good idea.

Lipoic acid

This antioxidant is produced naturally by the body. It is a unique defender against free radicals, and is sometimes called the universal antioxidant. Many other internally produced antioxidants have specific jobs, whereas lipoic acid enhances the activities of other antioxidants in the body, as well as being an excellent antioxidant on its own account. Lipoic acid may, for instance, temporarily fill in for vitamins C or E if their levels are low. Because of its ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier, it can reverse the negative effects caused by a stroke. Lipoic acid helps normalize blood sugar levels and can prevent serious complications from diabetes. Our bodies’ production of lipoic acid decreases with advancing age, so it is a very beneficial supplement for those over age forty.

Melatonin

This antioxidant hormone is produced by the brain’s pineal gland during sleep and helps maintain the body’s natural biorhythm. Melatonin may also help retard the aging process, especially by preventing the oxidative damage to brain cells that are associated with Alzheimer’s and other conditions. Cluster headaches may be alleviated by melatonin, and it has the ability to boost the immune system’s ability to stop tumors from spreading. Melatonin is found in tomatoes and other vegetables, and is available as a supplement. As we age, the body produces less and less melatonin, so for a lot of people over forty, a melatonin supplement is a good idea.

Superoxide dismutase

This antioxidant is an enzyme which is particularly powerful with skin tissue, revitalizing cells and reducing the rate of cell destruction. Superoxide dismutase helps the body use essential zinc, copper and manganese. Good sources of this antioxidant are barley grass, cabbage, wheatgrass and broccoli. As we age, our bodies produces less of this beneficial antioxidant, so supplementation could be an important factor in reducing wrinkles and retarding the aging process.

Getting back to hydrogen peroxide, this was the ad that lured me into buying an ebook called "The One Minute Cure."

It was really well written and I am thinking of using this approach if and when I write an ebook on alternative health cures.

How a Simple Formula Has Been Scientifically Proven to Cure Cancer and Virtually All Diseases

Why this one-minute therapy is being suppressed in the U.S. while more than

15,000 European doctors have been using it to heal millions of patients

by Madison Cavanaugh



What if you lived in a world where cancer -- or any other disease -- was no longer a threat to you? What if you never had to experience the horror of receiving a doctor's chilling diagnosis of a terrible disease -- or watch helplessly as someone you care about suffers from cancer or some other life-threatening disease -- with you not being able to do anything about it?

What would you be willing to give to ensure that you and your loved ones would never need to suffer -- or die -- from so-called "incurable" diseases that are actually curable?

Imagine never having to worry about getting the flu again -- or suffering from migraine headaches, gum disease, sinusitis, anemia, lupus, bronchitis -- and any other disease, for that matter.

What if you no longer had to live in fear that one day you'll develop a disease that "runs in the family" or get diseases that naturally come from "getting older" or from bad lifestyle choices?

And what if you had a one-minute cure (which costs only 1½ cents a day to self-administer) that could get rid of virtually any disease in the event that you actually acquired one?

I know, I know. You're probably thinking, "That just can't be true! How could one simple remedy possibly cure all diseases? There's no such thing as a panacea." Well, you have every reason to be skeptical. I know I was.

But if you can suspend your disbelief for a moment -- you're about to learn the most amazing health secret anyone could ever possess. Your life -- or the life of your loved one -- could very well depend on this information.

In the next 5 minutes as you read this article in its entirety, you will discover ...


a remarkable, scientifically proven natural therapy that creates an environment within the body where disease cannot thrive. This therapy does not cure disease but enables the body to cure itself of disease.

why over 6,100 articles in European scientific literature have attested to the effectiveness of this simple therapy
in not only killing diseased cells but also simultaneously revitalizing and rejuvenating healthy cells, thereby creating vibrant energy and well-being.

how this safe, inexpensive and powerful healing modality has been administered by an estimated 15,000 European doctors, naturopaths and homeopaths to more than 10 million patients in the past 70 years to successfully treat practically every known disease.

If you or someone you care about suffers from, or are at risk of acquiring, any disease, this will be the most important article you'll ever read in your life.

You'll discover why this simple therapy has the potential to save the lives of millions of people; how it can dramatically improve the quality of our lives by eradicating disease; and how it could potentially solve the health care crisis in this country.

You'll also find out why information about this groundbreaking therapy has been deliberately kept secret from the American public -- and why you must grab the earliest opportunity to learn about this one-minute therapy before this information is banned by enterprises, cartels and agencies whose financial interests are threatened by it.

Before we get started, here's why thousands of physicians, researchers and health practitioners who administer this simple therapy are calling it the . . .

"World's Greatest Healing Miracle of All Time"

wo-time Nobel Prize-winning doctor, Otto Warburg, shocked the world when he revealed that most disease is caused by insufficient levels of oxygen in the body. In fact, his studies showed that if you deprive a cell 35% of its required levels of oxygen for 48 hours, the cell is likely to become cancerous.

That's why cancer is so widespread in our modern society -- because most people suffer from oxygen deprivation. What most people don't know is that lack of oxygen is not only the underlying cause of cancer but is also the cause of most diseases -- from AIDS to yeast infections.

Curing cancer and other diseases, then, is just a matter of getting rid of the cause of the disease. It's as simple as that! But it's human nature to complicate the solution, and turn the simple into something complex.

Current medical research, for instance, is focused on the wrong causes of disease. Some claim that viruses, microbes, germs or harmful bacteria are the cause of cancer and other diseases. Others say it's the toxins in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the substances we consume. And still others say it's our genes or stress that causes us to acquire disease.

While all of these factors do characterize most diseases, or might be precursors or by-products of disease, they do not CAUSE disease. Rather, they bring about a condition in the body (oxygen deficiency) that, in turn, causes disease.

Clearly, the primary physical cause of all diseases is linked in one way or another to oxygen deficiency -- and when the human body is supplied with abundant amounts of oxygen, all cancer cells, viruses, harmful bacteria, toxins, pathogens and disease microorganisms are killed because they cannot survive in a high-oxygen environment.



"One out of every 3 adults in America already has cancer -- but most of them don't know it yet because the cancer is undiagnosed and undetected. According to the American Cancer Society, there's a 41% probability that an individual, male or female, will develop cancer in his or her lifetime (or die from it). Additionally, every human being has cancer cells existing in the body which are just seeking a low-oxygen environment where they can multiply into the full-blown disease ." -- Madison Cavanaugh, The One Minute Cure: The Secret to Healing Virtually All Diseases

Since an oxygen-rich body is uninhabitable by disease, then the solution for eradicating disease seems simple enough, doesn't it? Just supply the body with an abundant supply of oxygen, right?

Wrong! It's actually not as simple as that. Here's why:

Oxygen Cannot Cure Disease Unless It's Delivered to the Cells and Tissues of the Body

Most humans are NOT able to get proper amounts of oxygen in their cells and tissues -- due partly to poor air quality, poor breathing habits and oxygen-depleting activities. More importantly, the human body is NOT always able to deliver oxygen to the cells and tissues.

In order for oxygen to eradicate disease, it must be delivered not just to the lungs -- and not just to the bloodstream -- but to the cells and tissues of the body. That's why other oxygen-based therapies -- such as oxygenated water, oxygen-rich foods or supplements, or treatments that release oxygen into the bloodstream -- are not always effective in treating disease. While they may supply the body with oxygen, they don't always have an efficient mechanism for breaking the oxygen free from the hemoglobin molecule, which means the oxygen is not delivered to the cells and tissues. Such oxygen-based therapies, therefore, are seldom effective in preventing and curing disease.

The simple therapy you're about to learn, which thousands of people all over the world are calling "the world's greatest healing miracle of all time," is the only one that uses a natural oxygenating substance which ...

...stimulates the movement of
oxygen atoms from the bloodstream to the cells to a dramatically greater degree
than is usually reached by other means.


It does this by increasing oxygen and hemoglobin dissociation, thereby maximizing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells, according to a prominent doctor best known for treating AIDS patients with a holistic protocol which includes oxygen therapy (see page 97 of The One-Minute Cure).

Mike Adams web site, The Natural News, is an outstanding site if you want the truth. He talks not only about nutrition and health, but has even delved into the corrupt political scene here in America.

The Cancer industry is one of the biggest ones in this country. Big Med and Big Pharm will do almost anything to keep this money making machine rolling.

In one of the latest articles on Natural News, Mike Adams discusses about a telethon that featured a lot of famous actors in support of the conventional cancer industry. He points out the truth with what's happening in this country...

http://www.naturalnews.com/029726_cancer_telethon.html

Stand up to the cancer industry and its celebrity-powered hucksterism

(NaturalNews) If there's one thing to be learned from the recent "Stand Up To Cancer" telethon that gathered top Hollywood celebrities to raise money for the cancer industry, it's that you probably shouldn't get your health advice from actors.

The cancer industry is losing its propaganda battle as more and more people discover the truth about the toxic side effects of chemotherapy as well as the cancer preventive powers of nutrients like vitamin D and selenium. With the science now clearly showing that chemotherapy fails most patients and that conventional approaches to cancer cause more harm than good, the cancer industry has resorted to celebrity-influenced emotional theater to try to lure more people into keeping its "someday we'll find a chemical cure" scam going.

And starring in that theater are many top names in Hollywood, from Denzel Washington and George Clooney to Cindy Crawford and Katie Couric. Not present at the event, of course, were all the celebrities who have been killed by the cancer industry, including Patrick Swayze and Farrah Fawcett. By this time next year, that list will undoubtedly be even larger.


Give more money, but don't inform yourself
The gushy, emotionally-charged cancer fundraiser theatrical production was focused on raising more money for the failed cancer industry, yet it utterly failed to empower viewers with real information that could start saving lives right now: Information about how anti-cancer nutrients like vitamin D and selenium can slash cancer rates by 70 to 80 percent, saving hundreds of thousands of lives around the world.

No celebrity told the viewing audience to "take more vitamin D supplements to prevent cancer." No celebrity urged people to "get more sunshine and save your own life." The entire event was staged to raise more money for the very same toxic cancer industry that's right now killing celebrities and fans alike.

The whole charade was put on with a gushy, almost nauseating emotional appeal that had nothing whatsoever to do with the actual science on reversing cancer. The Washington Post called the whole thing "contrived" and described it as an event where "celebrity actors, pop stars, news anchors and others donned especially shiny halos and implored the world to give more to the cause. As always, the cancer movement's message is that we are so close to a breakthrough."




The cancer industry scam continues

But of course this has been the cancer industry's scam for more than 40 years: Claim to be just a few more dollars away from "the cure" while avoiding talking about the real, practical ways that people can prevent cancer right now.

If all these Hollywood celebrities really wanted to help people stop cancer, they would encourage viewers to stop drinking BPA chemicals from plastic bottles, stop eating processed meat products, stop using toxic chemicals found in personal care products and stop using pesticides on their lawns.

That message, however, isn't as sexy and emotional as sharing tear-jerker stories of how so many of the people we all love have been killed by cancer. Where facts fail, emotion can always persuade people to part with their money... especially if a famous person is telling you to pledge more.

Of course I feel sad for all the people killed by cancer, but I feel even more remorse for the ones killed by cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Nothing in this article should be construed as making light of the very real pain and suffering endured by those who are diagnosed with cancer or who undergo chemotherapy and radiation -- I have great compassion for them all. In fact, I lost several close relatives to the deathly side effects of chemotherapy, and I never want to see another person suffer from cancer nor the devastating toxic side effects of chemotherapy.

But unlike these cancer industry celebrity shills, I'm working to empower people with the information they need to halt cancer right now. And I'm happy to be working in harmony with some other truly courageous celebrities who are actually making a difference.

Suzanne Somers wasn't at the event. That's because she's been working hard sharing her book, Knockout: Interviews with Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer -- And How to Prevent Getting It in the First Place. This is a book that actually teaches people how to prevent and even cure cancer right now, using readily-available anti-cancer remedies and treatments that don't make you vomit and die like chemo often does.

Not surprisingly, nobody mentioned this book at the "Stand Up To Cancer" telethon event. After all, if people knew cancer cures already existed, why would they bother giving more money to the cancer industry?


The cancer industry only wants to keep itself alive
And there's the punch line to this entire theatrical production, actually: Raising money to fund the cancer industry depends on not talking about cancer cures. There are a lot of jobs and egos to support in the cancer industry, and if word got out about the prevention and cure strategies that really work right now, all sorts of cancer industry beneficiaries would find themselves out of work.

To keep the cancer industry going, celebrities get on stage and make fools of themselves: Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams and Katie Couric bet their credibility on the event, not knowing that the whole thing was staged to distract people from the real cancer solutions that exist right now.

You can find some of those cancer remedies, by the way, through the Cancer Control Society (www.CancerControlSociety.com), Dr. Samuel Epstein's "prevent cancer" website (www.PreventCancer.com) or any of the websites devoted to Gerson therapy (www.Gerson.org)

You can even watch free videos explaining Gerson Therapy and other natural cancer cures on NaturalNews.TV. Check this out one for starters: http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=FECAD...

The truth is, cancer can already be prevented and cured. A few really well informed celebrities like Suzanne Somers already know about this, but most of the rest have bought into the cancer industry's propaganda and misuse their celebrity power to extract yet more money from the very people who are being victimized by the cancer industry right now.


Charlatans of the cancer industry
Make no mistake: If curing cancer were only a matter of money, it would have already been cured. Billions of dollars have been poured into finding a pharmaceutical cure, and even though no such cure has ever been found (nor will it be from a chemical perspective), the industry keeps promising they're oh so very close to a cure if you would just reach deep into your pockets and see what cash you can hand over today.

The whole thing smacks of the televangelism scandals of the 1980's, where teary-eyed preachers were promising that your donations could "buy you a place in heaven" even while they were banging prostitutes in their luxury limos. The cancer industry is using your money to fund luxurious lifestyles, too -- the American Cancer Society is the wealthiest non-profit in the world, supporting lavish salaries, luxury vehicles and even widespread real estate holdings. As Dr Sam Epstein reports on his website:

"In 1992, The Chronicle of Philanthropy reported that the ACS was "more interested in accumulating wealth than in saving lives." Fund-raising appeals routinely stated that the ACS needed more funds to support its cancer programs, all the while holding more than $750 million in cash and real estate assets. A 1992 article in the Wall Street Journal, by Thomas DiLorenzo, professor of economics at Loyola College and veteran investigator of nonprofit organizations, revealed that the Texas affiliate of the ACS owned more than $11 million worth of assets in land and real estate, as well as more than 56 vehicles, including 11 Ford Crown Victorias for senior executives and 45 other cars assigned to staff members. Arizona's ACS chapter spent less than 10 percent of its funds on direct community cancer services. In California, the figure was 11 percent, and under 9 percent in Missouri."

This is the kind of thing celebrities are stumping for when they ask the public to donate money to the cancer industry.

Adam Sandler doesn't seem too funny all of a sudden when you think about the industry he's fronting on television. To give money to the cancer industry is to put your hard-earned dollars directly into the pockets of the very people who are purposely not talking about the cancer cures that exist right this very minute -- cures that could save lives and ease suffering starting today.

And that's why "Stand Up To Cancer" should have aired on The Comedy Channel -- it was all a sick joke. It was an orgy of celebrity-inspired propaganda and Big Pharma disinformation, all seductively packaged with heart-tugging stories of people who died from toxic cancer treatments offered by very industry that now claims to be trying to save your life.

Well, sure, we don't want people to die of cancer. That's a no-brainer. But the sad, sick truth of the matter is that the very industry financially benefiting from the event is the same one that actually depends on a continuation of cancer to keep itself in business.

To appear on stage stumping for this industry is to announce to the world, "I'm a cancer industry shill."

These celebrities only embarrass themselves with their ignorance.


Stand up to the cancer industry
Hasn't the cancer industry wasted enough of our money? Killed enough of our family members? Destroyed enough lives?

We don't need to "stand up to cancer..."

What we really need is to stand up to the cancer industry!

Stop giving your hard-earned money to cancer industry charlatans. Instead, learn the truth about cancer cures like Gerson Therapy. Read about anti-cancer nutrients on NaturalNews.com (www.NaturalNews.com/cancer.html) and pursue a sensible, healthful lifestyle that's rich with sunlight, nutrition and natural foods.

Get the toxic chemicals out of your home, out of your bathroom and out of your kitchen. Stop buying synthetic chemicals in your foods, drugs and home care products.

But most of all, stop listening to health advice from ignorant celebrities. That unfortunate habit will only get you killed. Just because someone plays a famous character on television (or sings in a rock band) doesn't mean they know anything whatsoever about health, or cancer, or nutrition.

And if you're a celebrity thinking about stumping for the next cancer industry fund raising telethon, please just take yourself off stage and stop abusing your influence to take money from the poor and give it to the (disease industry) rich. Your actions are a disgrace to your fans and they only cement your own membership in the "celebrity ignorance Hall of Fame."

Note to all: If you want to make 3% hydrogen peroxide from 35% Hydrogen peroxide, do the following:

How To Make 3% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide From 35% H2O2

My personal philosophy about taking H2O2 internally is this: Your life is on the line so do whatever is necessary to fix the problem.

In addition to a hydrogen peroxide bath, there is a specific protocol for taking it orally.

35% food grade hydrogen peroxide can be obtained, but it is dangerous and tricky to handle [e.g. wear safety glasses and wash off immediately if it gets on skin], but is an option if manufacturer recommendations are followed with exactness.

I would not put the drops of hydrogen peroxide in anything but the highest quality distilled water you can find.

Also, always use glass drinking containers. Hydrogen peroxide may leech a little plastic off of a plastic container. The plastic containers used by the vendors to ship H2O2 are special plastics which the general public does not have access to.

Because 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is dangerous to handle, I will give very specific instructions on how to make 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide from 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide.

To make 3% food grade H2O2 from 35% food grade H2O2, use a ratio of 1:10.5.

For example, put 1 TABLEspoon of 35% hydrogen peroxide into a glass jar and then put 10 1/2 TABLEspoons of distilled water into the glass jar and then mix them together.

You then use the jar of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide during your treatment.

No matter what dose of 3% food grade H2O2 you use, you will need to SLOWLY "build-up" to your chosen dose.


The CRITICAL BUILD-UP
Note: Doses of hydrogen peroxide are generally taken 3 times a day. Thus, when I talk about taking 4 drops a day, it is really 4 drops three times a day.

Let us suppose your dose was to take 10 drops in water (ALWAYS put your hydrogen peroxide in at least 4 ounces of water).

If you did that on your first day you would probably get sick at your stomach. You need to gradually "build-up" to your therapeutic dose.

The build-up is to take no more than 2 drops of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide on your first day.

On the second day, if your stomach tolerated the prior day's dose, you can increase the dose by 2 drops (you are now at 4 drops).

If you have any stomach discomfort do not increase the dose until your stomach gets used to the dosage.

On future days you can build up by two drops or higher (e.g. 5 drops).

The issue is to determine the urgency of getting to the higher doses versus getting the H2O2 past your stomach. You can build-up as fast as you want, just keep in mind the conflict between the urgency of getting to your therapeutic dose versus stomach upset.

WARNING: Hydrogen peroxide must ALWAYS be mixed with at least 4 ounces of distilled water, even AFTER it is diluted into 3% hydrogen peroxide - in order to protect the stomach.


Treatment Dosages
The doses of 35% H2O2 to be taken (three times a day) can be one drop, four drops, or ten drops. One author even recommends 25 drops, three times a day.

In converting 35% dosages to 3% dosages, multiply by 10 (not 11). For example:
1) One drop of 35% H2O2 becomes 10 drops of 3% H2O2,
2) Four drops of 35% H2O2 becomes 40 drops of 3% H2O2 (about half a TEAspoon),
3) Ten drops of 35% H2O2 becomes 100 drops of 3% H2O2 (a little more than one TEAspoon),
4) Twenty-Five drops of 35% H2O2 becomes 250 drops (a little less than 3 TEAspoons)

Drink your green tea! Here's more proof that green tea is a great healer...

http://www.naturalnews.com/030984_green_tea_dementia.html

Green tea better at preventing cancer and dementia than previously thought

NaturalNews) For years, NaturalNews has covered the mounting research linking green tea and its extracts to a host of disease-fighting benefits -- from halting the progression of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (http://www.naturalnews.com/029055_l...) and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease to protecting the oxygen-deprived brain from memory loss (http://www.naturalnews.com/023375_g...) and preventing breast cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/025687_g...). It almost sounds too good to be true, right? Actually, a new study has revealed that green tea is an even more incredible natural health enhancer than anyone knew previously.

Scientists at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom have just discovered that when green tea is consumed, the digestive process in the gut creates powerful chemicals that work to protect the body against two of humankind's most dreaded diseases -- Alzheimer's and cancer. The research, headed by Dr. Ed Okello, was recently published in the academic journal Phytomedicine.

The British scientists set out to see if the protective properties attributed to phytochemicals found in undigested, freshly brewed green tea are substantially active in the body once the tea is consumed. Dr Okello explained in a statement to the media that just because we eat or drink something that is generally accepted to contain healthful properties, that doesn't mean these compounds will actually be absorbed by the body.

"What was really exciting about this study was that we found when green tea is digested by enzymes in the gut, the resulting chemicals are actually more effective against key triggers of Alzheimer's development than the undigested form of the tea," Dr Okello, of Newcastle's School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development, said in the press statement. "In addition to this, we also found the digested compounds had anti-cancer properties, significantly slowing down the growth of the tumor cells which we were using in our experiments."

Dr. Okello's Newcastle team worked in collaboration with Dr. Gordon McDougall of the Plant Products and Food Quality Group at the Scottish Crop Research Institute in Dundee where technology has been developed which simulates the human digestive system. By using this high tech system, the researchers were able to analyze what happens to green tea once it is digested.

Earlier research has already shown that natural compounds known as polyphenols found in both black and green tea have neuroprotective properties. They bind with two toxic compounds (hydrogen peroxide and a protein known as beta-amyloid) known to play a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease. For part of their new study, the research team conducted experiments in the lab using cells exposed to varying concentrations of the different toxins as well as digested green tea compounds. They also looked to see the impact of digested green tea on cancer cells.

The results? The digested green tea chemicals prevented the Alzheimer's disease-linked toxins from destroying normal cells. "We also saw them affecting the cancer cells, significantly slowing down their growth," Dr. Okello stated. "Green tea has been used in Traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and what we have here provides the scientific evidence why it may be effective against some of the key diseases we face today."

This past year, I've been eating more broccoli, especially in my salads. There is a whole new movement in eating and it's eating raw food. While I won't eat raw meat, I have been trying to get most of my raw veggies in my salads. Broccoli is the #1 anti-cancer vegatable along with carrots, and I put both of them in my salads.

I also have two parakeets and have been cutting up the broccoli heads and chopping up string-cut carrots and including them in their food. Since seed alone doesn't supply them the necessary needed ingredients, I feel that they are getting the best in brocolli and carrots. Broccoli is actually "green seed" so that can intermix with their seed with no problem. Also, I have been getting Harrison Bird food, High Potency Super Fine pellets for them to eat. Just like birds, we need a lot of nutrients that are missing in most of our processed food.

Here's an article from Natural News about the importance of broccoli in fighting and preventing cancer...

Study: Combining broccoli with broccoli sprouts doubles anti-cancer effect

by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

Friday, February 25, 2011

(NaturalNews) Study after study continues to show that eating broccoli helps to prevent and treat cancer. And a new study out of the University of Illinois (U of   says that combining broccoli with broccoli sprouts nearly doubles the cruciferous vegetable's anti-cancer effects.

"Broccoli, prepared correctly, is an extremely potent cancer-fighting agent -- three to five servings a week are enough to have an effect," said Elizabeth Jeffery, a U of I professor of nutrition that worked on the study. "To get broccoli's benefits, though, the enzyme myrosinase has to be present; if it's not there, sulforaphane, broccoli's cancer-preventive and anti-inflammatory component, doesn't form."

Previous research on the cancer-preventing benefits of broccoli have found that overcooking broccoli results in the elimination of up to 90 percent of the vegetable's anti-cancer compounds. (http://www.naturalnews.com/025893_b...). However, gently cooking broccoli in a steamer, not in the microwave, can potentially unlock more of its anti-cancer compounds than are present when eating the vegetable raw.

Jeffrey and her colleagues compared blood levels of sulforaphane among a group of men who ate meals containing either broccoli sprouts alone, broccoli powder alone, or both combined. They found that in just three hours after finishing their meals, participants who ate both the powder and the sprouts had nearly twice as much of the anti-cancer substance in their systems than the two other groups did.

"There was almost a twofold increase in sulforaphane absorption when sprouts and powder were eaten together," said Jeffrey. "It changed the way the subjects metabolized the powder. We saw plasma and urine metabolites much earlier and at much higher levels than when either was eaten alone."

Jeffrey and her team say that combining other sulforaphane-rich foods like mustard, radishes, arugula, and wasabi, along with broccoli and broccoli sprouts, will increase the benefits even further. But she warns that taking certain broccoli supplements in lieu of actual broccoli and broccoli sprouts may not work, as some broccoli supplements do not contain the vital enzyme myrosinase that produces sulforaphane.

I grew broccoli in my garden last year. If I had started it early, I would have had some broccoli head in the spring, but instead, had to wait till the fall to harvest them. Broccoli is a very hardy plant and survives long after the first frost. They would have been growing and thriving well after Thanksgiving if the rabbits hadn't stripped them down to their husks.

Here's another article that talks about how broccoli can prevent prostate cancer...

Scientists discover how broccoli fights cancer

Scientists may have discovered why eating broccoli seems to reduce the chance of developing prostate cancer.


By Rebecca Smith, Medical Editor 7:45AM BST 13 Jul 2010

Broccoli has been hailed as a 'superfood' after several studies suggested it had anti-cancer properties.

Now scientists have identified a chemical in the vegetable which interact with genes involved in cancer development.

The chemical called sulforaphane seems to counteract a fault with the gene called PTEN which is involved in prostate cancer.

The gene normally stops cancer from developing but in certain cells it is missing and this is when the disease can begin. However sulforaphane seems to dampen the effect of these cells that are missing PTEN and prevent them from triggering cancer growth.

The study was conducted by a team at the Institute of Food Research at the Norwich Research Park, using prostate tissue from men and cancerous cells from mice.

The discovery could lead to new treatments for the disease which affects 36,000 men a year.

The findings are published in the journal BioMed Central, Molecular Cancer.

I have to do more research on this, but came across a new way of treating cancer. It is actually a way to treat the real cause of death of cancer patients, and it isn't actually the cancer itself. It's a condition called cachexia, which robs a person of all his energy and weight loss. A treatment of HZ, or hydrazine sulfate. Here's the story about this possible new breakthrough in cancer research ...

http://scri.ngen.com/hydrazine_sulfate.html

A New Cancer Treatment

The Syracuse Cancer Research Institute is involved in research into a totally new approach to cancer treatment. Results of this research have excited the interest of scientists and clinicians everywhere and are currently generating expanded experimentation both in this country and abroad.

The approach to this treatment of cancer taken by the Institute has been concerned with interruption of the prime cause of death in cancer rather than the prime cause of cancer itself. This prime cause of death in cancer is the weight loss and bodily debilitation seen characteristically in advancing disease. This is known medically as cachexia. It was reasoned that if cancer cachexia could be interrupted, the disease itself might be controlled (much as the disease of diabetes is controlled by the daily injection of insulin).

Such an approach holds the potential of not only reversing the devastating symptoms of cancer but—insofar as cancer cachexia and cancer growth are interrelated—reversing cancer growth as well.

Over three decades of research at the Institute and other laboratories and medical centers have gone into the validation of this new approach.


Early Progress

The Syracuse Cancer Research Institute began operations in 1966, founded by its director, Dr. Joseph Gold. At the time cancer cachexia was only a descriptive term, its causes entirely unknown. Research done by Dr. Gold indicated the condition to be largely the result of cancer’s ability to “recycle its wastes” at the energy expense of the body—and thus impose a severe energy drain on the body, eventually resulting in cachexia.

Specifically, it was pointed out that cancer uses glucose (sugar) as its fuel but only incompletely metabolizes (combusts) it. The cancer’s waste product—lactic acid—together with the breakdown products of other tissues of the body, spilling into the blood as a result of the cancer’s metabolism, are taken up by the liver and kidney (normal, non-cancerous tissues) and much energy is expended from these normal “host” tissues to build these waste and breakdown products back up to glucose.

The new glucose formed may then be re-presented to the cancer cell for fuel and the cycle will be repeated. The net result is a loss of energy from normal body energy “pools.” As the cancer grows, its production of lactic acid and other chemical intermediates increases, imposing on the body a condition in which the normal body energy “pools” become more and more depleted. Eventually the body reaches a point where dietary energy intake can no longer keep up with these energy losses and rapid weight loss and debilitation supervene. This is the onset of cachexia.

Dr. Gold theorized by interrupting this process of “host energy loss”—blocking the body’s chemical machinery which converts lactic acid and other breakdown products to glucose in normal tissues—cancer cachexia could be averted. In this regard subsequent experimentation at the Institute found that an entire new class of “gluconeogenic blocking agents” could bring about such “interruption.” One of these—the chemical hydrazine sulfate—was especially able to disrupt cancer’s energy “cycle” and thereby arrest and reverse cachexia.

In 1973 hydrazine sulfate began early clinical studies in human cancer patients. By 1975 it was clear that this drug had a stabilizing effect on patients with very advanced cancers. Its administration resulted in significant bodily and anticancer improvements. The chemical was also found to enhance the effects of other anticancer drugs and treatments in all cases tested.

Collaborative studies with other laboratories, universities and medical centers likewise gave support to the Institute’s early findings, enlarging the scope of application of this new approach to cancer treatment. Such results received wide exposure in the medical journals.


Growth

In 1977 the Institute completed a major expansion program, more than doubling in size. Laboratory facilities and resources increased more than four-fold, research programs escalated. Intensified anticancer testing of many agents took place; much experimental progress was made with the drug hydrazine sulfate, contributing to the groundwork of subsequent double-blind human trials.


Progress

The Institute’s progress in the last three decades devolves about the development and clinical testing of the effectiveness and safety of its drug hydrazine sulfate in our pharmaceutical arsenal against cancer.

In 1975 Russian scientists, under the Joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. Health Agreement of 1972, undertook controlled clinical trials of hydrazine sulfate, which showed marked improvement in late-stage—what they called “factually terminal”—cancer patients with different types of cancer. Increased appetite with weight stabilization and weight gain, improved performance status, decreased pain, diminished weakness, normalization of abnormal laboratory indices, tumor stabilization, tumor regression and an absence of important clinical side effects were reported.

Commencing in 1980 under grant sponsorship from the American Cancer Society and the National Institutes of Health, prospectively-randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical studies at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles demonstrated hydrazine sulfate to improve glucose tolerance and reduce glucose turnover (energy-wasting), increase caloric intake and the efficacy of caloric intake, increase or stabilize weight, promote serum albumin maintenance (a prognostic marker of survival in some cancer patients) and induce statistically significant survival increase in patients with lung cancer. Again, no important clinical side effects were reported.

Seventeen years of controlled Russian studies and ten years of Harbor-UCLA randomized clinical trials—published in distinguished American peer-reviewed cancer and scientific journals, as well as respected journals elsewhere—together showed that of every million late-stage, refractory (no longer responsive to usual therapy) cancer patients treated with hydrazine sulfate, more than half a million would obtain measurable symptomatic improvement, 400,000 would demonstrate a halt or regression in tumor growth, and some would go on to long-term (greater than 10 years) survival. The American (Harbor-UCLA) studies characterized hydrazine sulfate as representing a “fundamentally new direction in cancer treatment.”

To date all controlled clinical trials, performed in accordance with internationally accepted scientific principles of study conduct—without exception—have indicated the efficacy and safety of hydrazine sulfate, whether used as a single agent or in conjunction with chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

The only contrary results to the Russian and Harbor-UCLA studies have been three trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), commending in 1990 and ending in 1992. However, these trials were compromised by the use of incompatible agents (medications)—tranquilizers, sleeping pills, alcohol—with the test drug, hydrazine sulfate.

The use of incompatible medications with a test drug is virtually unknown in human biomedical testing, since it can result in the grave illness—or death—of a patient, can cause a negative drug study and is in clear violation of multiple warnings against such use in the medical literature—and in violation of the Helsinki Declaration.

The Helsinki Declaration is a multinational ratification of principles governing human biomedical research studies, to which the United States is a principle signatory, which was put in place to guarantee that no harmful procedures be used in patients undergoing experimental medical treatment. Principle 1 of the Helsinki Declaration states: “Biomedical research involving human subjects must conform to generally accepted scientific principles and be based on a thorough knowledge of the medical literature.” Perhaps most important of generally accepted scientific principles in the conduct of human biomedical research is that no incompatible agents (medications) be used in a drug trial. This document lies at the very heart of internationally accepted standards for biomedical research and is at the very core of all clinical trials and informed consent. As such, the Helsinki Declaration represents the international “law of the land” and requires all human biomedical research to conform to its stated principles.

The Russian and Harbor-UCLA studies of hydrazine sulfate were in full conformity with the Helsinki Declaration.

The NCI-sponsored trials of hydrazine sulfate were out of compliance with the Helsinki Declaration. None of the published NCI-sponsored studies referenced this document.

Despite the NCI-sponsored studies being out of compliance with the Helsinki Declaration and their failure to even reference this document in its protocols or published studies, the NCI is the largest and most influential cancer agency in the world—and its “credentials” are most respected among many in the world medical community. Consequently, NCI’s differing results from the Russian and Harbor-UCLA trials were sufficient to envelop hydrazine sulfate in ongoing “controversy.”

The Syracuse Cancer Research Institute has devoted much energy and many resources to counteracting the controversy that has arisen as a result of the NCI-sponsored studies—and continues to work to make this inexpensive medication available to doctors and patients throughout the world. At present this medication is available by doctor’s prescription in the United States and elsewhere.

I have learned over the years that there is a natural cure for almost any ailment. Mother Nature provides plenty of cures, you just have to search hard enough and you will find it.

Among the many natural cures for cancer, a new one is developing, and like the mighty dandelion, there is a weed that may have the properties that can cure most cancers. The wild tomatillo weed has been found to fight and cure many cancers in animals. It is still in the research stage, but it offers future hope.

Wild tomatillo weed compounds may help fight cancer, study finds

Tuesday, May 08, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer


(NaturalNews) A multidisciplinary research team from the University of Kansas (KU) has made a pioneering discovery in the realm of natural, plant-based cancer treatments. Preliminary findings published in the Journal of Natural Products (JNP) reveal that wild tomatillo (Physalis longifolia), a weed commonly found throughout the midwestern Great Plains and in other areas of North America, possesses at least 14 unique anti-cancer compounds that could one day change the way doctors approach cancer treatment.

During a bioprospecting project in South America back in the 1990s, Barbara Timmermann, a medicinal chemist and co-director of KU's Native Medicinal Plant Research Program, made an interesting discovery. A plant native to that particular region turned out to contain anti-cancer compounds, which prompted Timmermann, whose work involves identifying plants with medicinal properties, to search out ways to investigate it further.

But because of cost, distance, and other physical and financial barriers, Timmermann was never able to return to South America to perform the necessary analyses and finish her research. So she reportedly joined up with Kelly Kindscher, a senior scientist at the Kansas Biological Survey, to look for similar plants in the American Midwest. And much to their surprise, wild tomatillo turned out not only to contain the compound in question, but also to possess even more anti-cancer compounds than the original South American plant.

"Our research led us to Physalis longifolia, which is a fairly common plant throughout the Midwest," said Timmerman. "And from there, we discovered not only the molecule we were seeking, but also the 14 new compounds, most of which have turned out to be even more potent than the original one we were looking for. Discovery is a beautiful thing when it happens like that."

Animal trials show wild tomatillo can effectively mitigate, cure cancer

After first identifying wild tomatillo, Timmerman and Kindscher sought the help of Dr. Mark Cohen, a surgical oncologist and translational clinician scientist at the KU Medical Center, to analyze the plant. The three successfully identified the 14 compounds in question, known as withanolides, which in animal trials have already been shown to both fight and eradicate cancer cells.

According to Dr. Cohen's laboratory analysis, these 14 compounds target melanomas, thyroid cancer, head and neck squamous cell cancer, breast cancer, glioblastoma brain tumors, esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, and certain leukemias. When fed wild tomatillo, test mice with these and other cancers saw their tumors shrink drastically, and in some cases even completely dissolve, without any negative side effects or noticeable toxicity.

The breakthrough findings are so significant, in fact, that Timmerman and her team's work was featured at the recent University Research & Entrepreneurship Symposium in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The event is an exclusive, invite-only showcase of the nation's most promising new university-based technologies for industry leaders, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs (http://www.universitysymposium.com/).

"We're excited by the preliminary results," added Timmermann. "While our research is still in the early stages, we're optimistic that some of these 14 molecules could lead to new plant-based drugs or dietary supplements."

Currently, wild tomatillo extracts, powders, and supplements are not widely or commercially available to the public. But as research on wild tomatillo continues to emerge, it is expected that wild tomatillo products might soon hit the market in the form of all-natural, food-based supplements.
