This is an “anthology” of sorts about the etiology of the current cancer epidemic-pandemic.
C-A-N-C-E-R is the word that strikes horror in the hearts and minds of every human alive. However, that always was not the case. I’m old enough to remember when cancer was a rather ‘rare’ disease or condition. Furthermore, I know medical doctors a little older than my ‘vintage’ who say that when they were in medical school, they were not taught very much about cancer, so much so, that when a cancer patient was in one of the wards in a teaching hospital, the entire class of physicians-in-training was trotted in to see that patient. How interesting?
Personally, I’m of the belief that there is not very much new under the sun EXCEPT what’s being designed and created by genetic modification and geoengineering. Cancer, undoubtedly, has been around in some form probably since very ancient times. However, the current ‘plague of cancers’, even though not an anomaly since just about everyone and his or her brother has or had it, became ‘profitable’ during the latter half of the twentieth century.
There is no doubt that cancer, as an ‘industry’, will become even more problematic—plus profitable—to the point where every person probably will contract cancer in some form or other, almost as if by some ulterior design. Why do I say that? Because of how cancer has been made into a “profitable business,” revenue stream and profit center for varied and numerous vested interests, when there actually are cancer cures controlling vested interests suppress or even keep for themselves. Is that too harsh to hear? Well, have you recently looked into or checked out the ridiculously-priced costs of cancer treatments and protocols? Like all wars, the “war on cancer” is profitable for vested interests.
For starters, the average cost of a new cancer drug is over $100,000 per year.
Newly-approved cancer drugs can cost about $10,000 on average per month, while some can top off at around, or over, $30,000 a month.
Contrast those prices with the cost of cancer drugs a decade or so ago, which were a mere ‘smidgen’ of only $4,500 a month. Talk about inflation, or is it medical-pharma rip-off time? Owning a ‘cancer insurance’ policy really doesn’t help defray many of those costs either. Usually a cancer policy will state that it provides a lump sum payment for “a covered cancer” or a recurrence of cancer. Some policies will provide a lump sum cash payout of X dollars upon diagnosis and that’s it!
This website gives the “average” medical costs for various types of cancers.
What do you think is the average salary an oncologist pulls in? That salary can range from approximately $294,000 to $383,000 per year. However, how do doctors feel about taking chemotherapy for themselves? When polled, the results showed “75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves.” Isn’t that interesting?
In this article, “If Chemotherapy Fails 97% Of The Time, Why Do Doctors Recommend It?” you may begin to understand that doctors don’t learn to cure anything! “They learn about chemicalintervention or surgery to suppress symptoms. They don’t go for the root cause.” (That would put them out of business!)
So how did allopathic medicine and humans become ‘partners’ in cancer?
The first documented case of cancer comes from ancient Egypt. According to the American Cancer Society, there are eight documented cases of breast cancer found on papyrus dating all the way back to 3000 B.C. Even the term cancer has been around for centuries— Hippocrates, the Greek physician who is widely considered the Father of Medicine, used the words carcinos and carcinoma to describe tumors. 
Incidentally, there is no mention of cancer per se, even though other diseases are mentioned, in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. However, individual interpretations, though, may lead some to conclude differently.
Cancer as a rarity in ancient times is not disputed, although some fossilized bone tumors have been found in ancient human mummies. The dreaded disease of antiquity was leprosy or what’s known in modern times as Hansen’s disease.
During the Renaissance in Europe, a better understanding of the human body began to develop and that led to more diagnostics, especially once post mortem operations (autopsies) became more of a routine procedure after death. The Renaissance’s Michelangelo, sculptor of “David,” was known to perform detailed anatomical dissections of “fresh cadavers,” which obviously led to his ability to ‘create’ a marble man of extreme anatomical elegance. Additionally, the invention of the microscope moved pathogenesis along to a great degree of sophisticated knowledge regarding diseased tissues.
It wasn’t until the 1900s that the ‘modern’ or current understanding about cancer and things called “carcinogens” began to appear in science and medicine. Coincidentally, or more accurately I say, parallel tracks relating to certain diseases began to manifest too. Those parallels encompassed man-made chemicals and cancer demographics! Currently the ‘buzz words’ also include epigenetics.
What went wrong
Some of the most egregious assaults upon the human organism that contribute to cancers are the inordinate use and amounts of toxic chemicals placed into food and water—deliberately! Food growing, processing, preserving, coloring and taste enhancement-chemicals do not belong in food—period! They adulterate food and our bodies causing biochemical and nutritional imbalances, including genotoxic DNA problems that program cancers. Neither do most of the man-made chemicals used in water treatment facilities belong in water—the second-most vital element, besides air, for maintaining life.
In my July 2016 book, Eat to Beat Disease, Foods Medicinal Qualities, I devote the Introduction to chronicling how agriculture and the food chain have been polluted chemically, basically since the Industrial Revolution, and especially since World War II when USA businesses and industries went haywire manufacturing, advertising and selling chemicals and pharmaceuticals as ‘needed elements to make life better’—“Better living through chemistry!” Unfortunately, consumers bought into and ‘embraced’ all the ‘kill’ chemicals for eliminating bugs, vermin, crab grass, weeds, etc. How hoodwinked were we not to realize that anything that can kill one life form, can and will do irreparable or long-term damage to other life forms higher up the food chain? Those “can’t do without” lawn chemicals now pollute our drinking water!…
Is the current cancer epidemic-pandemic a ‘man-made’ problem?
As I said in the beginning of this “anthology,” cancer has been around since ‘forever’, but the current rate of contraction is far beyond what could be termed ‘natural chances’. Everything, including pharmacology, which I’ve not discussed, is implicated in a “cause and effect” with cancer ideologies, especially anything having to do with “man-made” chemicals, a great quantity of which affects our food, water and the air we breathe.
Is it too late to do anything about the cancer epidemic-pandemic? What do you think?…
