5 Cancer Facts that Conventional Medicine Wants You to Believe are Myths

by Dave Mihalovic, Prevent Disease, Waking Times

According to the conventional wisdom of mainstream medicine, the world’s leading health practitioners in alternative, complementary and integrative medicine have it all wrong and are misinforming millions in practice and on the internet with a barrage of myths and misconceptions they claim are causing more harm to cancer patients. Could this initiative to sway opinion by leading cancer authorities possibly, just possibly be related to the revolution that is happening around the world–highlighting the dangers and ineffectiveness of toxic chemotherapy and radiation, bringing cancer cures such as cannabis to the forefront, or the emerging mass markets now creating awareness on the reality of our food and the consequences of the cancer industry itself?

FACT #1 – The Rise In All Types of Cancers Are Due To Our Modern Society Diets, Lifestyles and Environment

Why The Cancer Industry Claims This Is a Myth

The claim is that our genes are responsible, combined with the fact that people are living long enough now to develop cancer. It’s because of our success in tackling infectious diseases and malnutrition that we now get cancer. It’s perfectly normal for DNA damage in our cells to build up as we age, and such damage can lead to cancer developing. Cancer has existed as long as humans have.

The Reality

The only reason that people around the world today believe that our ancestors did not live past 100 years is because the official data has been sparse. There are very few records that show (officially) the age of our ancestors before then 18th century, but there is a reasonable amount of evidence suggesting there were many people living hundreds of years in prehistory and beyond.

In all the skeletons collected in the history of paleoanthropology, scientists have only been able to identify a mere 200 possible cancer sightings dating to prehistoric times, and these identifications are far from certain. Despite the numbers, when you look at the remains, it seems to indicate that malignancies were a “striking rarity” in ancient times, but that evidence is hardly conclusive. We just don’t know for sure, so to use any type of argument that cancer existed or did not exist to any extent in prehistory involves making a great deal of assumptions.

So let’s just focus on what has transpired in the last century alone.
According to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, Vital Statistics of the United States, from the early 1900s alone up to an including 2011, there was a greater than 3 fold increase in cancer death rates.

According to a 2013 featured report compiled by the American Cancer Society and other government and cancer advocacy groups, progress has been made in the “war on cancer.” But what kind of progress? Declining mortality rates are not due to decreases in incidence. More people are getting cancer, but they’re staying alive longer. What the cancer industry does not point out is that the trends clearly show that we haven’t eliminated cancer to any extent, but we have managed to be able to diagnose it and treat it and thus profit from the actual disease itself.

People globally are living longer but chronic debilitating conditions are becoming more prevalent.

Diagnosis and treatment are the money makers in this industry. Actual prevention is not. So when it comes to prevention, conventional medicine has stuck its head in the sand.

Overall, cancer deaths began dropping in the 1990’s, with death rates declining by 1.8 percent for men and 1.4 percent for women between the years 2000-2009, according to the featured report. Children’s death rates from cancer are also declining at a pace of 1.8 percent per year, although incidence is still rising by about 0.5 percent annually.

Other cancers are also still on the rise though, including liver and pancreatic cancer and melanoma (among men).

A 2008 study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science demonstrated how nutrition alone can have a tremendous impact not only on prevention, but even on the treatment of cancer once you’ve been diagnosed.

This type of information is never emphasized by the medical community because they do not believe cancer can be treated without either cutting, poisoning or burning cancerous tumors.

FACT #2 – Super-foods and Herbs Can Prevent Cancer

Why The Cancer Industry Claims This Is a Myth

The claim is that specific fruits and vegetables you choose don’t really matter. There’s no such thing as a ‘super-food’ or medicinally powerful herb and any assertion has no scientific basis.

The Reality

This one is just embarrassing for them. While there is not one super-food or herb that may cure all cancers, to suggest that super-foods don’t exist or that herbs are not medicinally powerful is reaching deep in the pits of ignorance. In fact, there is so much evidence that super-foods exist and have anti-cancer properties, that any claims suggesting the opposite are a good measure of where the credibility lies among many of these industry quacks that make such preposterous statements.

As of the date of this article, The American Cancer Society (ACS) appears to have removed references to “super foods” or “super-foods” off of their website. Yet, several authors have written extensively about previous recommendations of the ACS, specifically regarding the potential of super-foods to prevent cancer. Northridge Hospital Medical Center lists several super foods using the ACS as a source. Calorielab.com has posted a super food infographic also using ACS as a source. But information on super-foods on the ACS website does not appear to exist…
