A cancer cure will never be found in a cancer research laboratory

You will note that death from cancer increased from 64.0 persons per 100,000 in 1910 to 185.9 persons per 100,000 in 2010—a three-fold increase. How is that possible? What has caused this increase despite huge amounts of money spent on cancer research?

In my opinion, it is clear that a cancer cure will never be found in a cancer research laboratory, of that I’m certain. Further, there is no single cause and effect for cancer or anything else for that matter:

Despite the general recognition that 85 per cent of all cancers is caused by environmental influences, less than 10 per cent of the (U.S.) National Cancer Institute budget is given to environmental causes. Source: Cancer Research – A Super Fraud?

Rather, answers giving rise to this huge increase in cancer are to be  found in the irresponsible behaviour of corporations, governments, public relations, and such like, over the past century, those events, developments that follow from such behaviour. Not ordinary individuals!

Let’s stop blaming Individuals for smoking, drinking too much alcohol, eating too much meat and not enough fruit and vegetables, for too much sun exposure, and the list goes on. That is after all a convenient distraction from the real causes for this increase in cancer. After all, it is the public relations industry that shapes consumption behaviour and the nation’s culture. Our leaders lie to us and constantly about everything including cancer and it’s causes. My tip, learn how to counter propaganda techniques. I don’t claim any expert knowledge rather I’m an enthusiastic amateur—but a well informed one:

  • For a long time people have been successfully indoctrinated into believing that cancer is a medical problem and that the mechanistic medical model has the answers to everything that ails the human animal. Not so!
  • For a long time it’s known that cancer could be caused by chemicals, radiation, viruses, and other agents. Thus the answer is prevention—rid our world of these man-made cancer causing pollutants. Whereas, the current mechanistic medical model is exclusively concerned with treatment—not prevention.
  • Thus the answer is to rid our world of those causes of cancer. Corporations re-labelled and re-framed the consequences of their activities (e.g., environmental pollution in its myriads of forms), as inevitable and acceptable. They are neither inevitable nor acceptable, and never will be.
  • To rid our world of these cancer causes requires politicians with enormous political will and huge cojones.
  • The political will will only surface if constituents demand this of their political leaders. This would involve the mother of all battles with polluting corporations and their allies to change their awful behaviours.
  • Constituents will only demand this mighty battle if they understand that cancer research is a super fraud and that the answer lies in addressing the pollution of our world if we are to reverse the numbers of death from cancer.

Get rid of these toxic products right away:

  • Vinyl plastic
    Vinyl is the worst plastic for the environment. Banned in over 14 countries and the European Union, PVC, also known as vinyl, is found in floors, wall coverings, and toys. Vinyl leaches phthalates (linked to hormone disruption) and lead (a potent neurotoxicant)—contaminating air, dust, and eventually you.
  • Fragrance product
    Chemical fragrances found in products like air fresheners, dryer sheets, and perfumes can trigger asthma. Some of the chemicals mimic oestrogen, a process that may increase the risk of breast cancer. For example, diethyl phthalate (DEP) is absorbed through the skin and can accumulate in human fat tissue. Phthalates are carcinogens and hormone disruptors linked to reproductive disorders. To be safe, choose fragrance-free products or use those scented with natural fragrances like essential oils.
  • Canned food
    Food cans are lined with bisphenol-A (BPA), and are our main source of exposure to BPA, which has been linked to early puberty, cancer, obesity, heart disease, depression in young girls and much more. Some companies have switched to BPS, BPA’s chemical cousin, which has been linked to many of the same health effects. To be safe, opt for fresh, frozen, dried or jarred foods.
  • Dirty cleaners
    Corrosive or caustic cleaners, such as the lye and acids found in drain cleaners, oven cleaners and acid-based toilet bowl cleaners are the most dangerous cleaning products because they burn skin, eyes and internal tissue easily. It’s simple and effective to use non-toxic cleaners or to make your own.
  • Pesticides
    They’re made to be toxic. That’s how they kill things. But, solving your pest problem may leave you with another problem—residual poisons that linger on surfaces, contaminate air, and get tracked onto carpet from the bottom of shoes. There are many non-toxic ways to eliminate pests and weeds.
  • Bottled water
    People buy bottled water thinking they’re avoiding contaminants present in their tap water. For the most part, they’re wrong. Bottled water may be even more contaminated than tap water. In fact, some bottled water is tap water—just packaged (in plastic that can leach chemicals into the water). Also, from manufacture to disposal, bottled water creates an enormous amount of pollution, making our water even less drinkable.
  • Lead lipstick
    There is no safe level of lead exposure. Pregnant women and children are at special risk, as lead can interfere with normal brain development.
  • Non-stick cookware
    Perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), which make products stain-and stick resistant, are linked to cancer and low birth weights. They are persistent and can now be found all over the globe. Not only are PFCs found in cookware, but microwave popcorn bags and pizza boxes, some dental flosses, furniture and clothing. To steer clear of PFCs, avoid products made with Teflon or list ingredients beginning with “fluoro” or “perfluoro.”
  • Triclosan
    This antibacterial agent is found in soaps, toothpastes, mouthwashes, deodorants, and even clothing. Triclosan may harm the human immune system, which makes people more likely to develop allergies, and reduces muscle strength in humans and animals. Instead of using antibacterial hand sanitizers made with triclosan, choose an alternative made with at least 60 per cent alcohol.
  • Oil-based paints and finishes
    There are 300 toxic chemicals and 150 carcinogens potentially present in oil-based paint. Look for water-based options—ideally those that are low- or no-VOC. You could also explore natural finishes like milk paint and vegetable or wax-based wood finishes.
