    i don't pretend to know whether this is true or not, but i intend to ask my doctor at my next exam. ------------------------------------------------------


    Cancer Update from John Hopkins

    1. Every person has cancer cells in the body.
    These cancer cells do not show up in the standard
    tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.
    When doctors tell cancer patients that there are
    no more cancer cells in their bodies after
    treatment, it just means the tests are unable to
    detect the cancer cells because they have not
    reached the detectable size.

    2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10
    times in a person's lifetime

    3. When the person's immune system is strong the
    cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from
    multiplying and forming tumors.

    4. When a person has cancer it indicates the
    person has multiple nutritional deficiencies.
    These could be due to genetic, environmental, food
    and lifestyle factors.

    5. To overcome the multiple nutritional
    deficiencies, changing diet and including
    supplements will strengthen the immune system.

    6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the
    rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys
    rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
    gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ
    damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

    7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also
    burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues
    and organs.

    8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and
    radiation will often reduce tumor size. However
    prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not
    result in more tumor destruction.

    9 When the body has too much toxic burden from
    chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is
    either compromised or destroyed, hence the person
    can succumb to various kinds of infections and

    10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer
    cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult
    to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to
    spread to other sites.

    11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve
    the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods
    it needs to multiply.


    a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar
    it cuts off one important food supply to the
    cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet,
    Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it
    is harmful. A better natural substitute would be
    Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small
    amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make
    it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's
    aminos or sea salt.

    b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus,
    especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer
    feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and
    substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer
    cells are being starved.

    c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A
    meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat
    fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or
    pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics,
    growth hormones and parasites, which are all
    harmful, especially to people with cancer.

    d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice,
    whole grains,seeds, nuts and a little fruits help
    put the body into an alkaline environment. About
    20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh
    vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are
    easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels
    within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of
    healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building
    healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice
    (most vegetables including bean sprouts)and eat
    some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes
    are destroyed at temp. of 104 degrees F (40
    degrees C.)

    e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have
    high caffeine.Green tea is a better alternative
    and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to
    drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known
    toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled
    water is acidic, avoid it.

    12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and
    requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested
    meat remaining in the intestines become putrified
    and leads to more toxic buildup.

    13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein
    covering. By refraining from or eating less meat
    it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls
    of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells
    to destroy the cancer cells.

    14. Some supplements build up the immune system
    (IP6, Flor-ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,
    minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own
    killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other
    supplements like vitamin E are known to cause
    apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's
    normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted,
    or unneeded cells.

    15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and
    spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help
    the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger,
    unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a
    stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a
    loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and
    enjoy life.

    16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated
    environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing
    help to get more oxygen down to the cellular
    level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to
    destroy cancer cells.


    1. No plastic containers in micro.

    2. No water bottles in freezer.

    3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

    Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its
    newsletters. This information is being circulated
    at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

    Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast
    cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells
    of our bodies.Don't freeze your plastic bottles
    with water in them as this releases dioxins from
    the plastic.

    Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program
    Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program
    to explain this health hazard. He talked about
    dioxins and how bad they are for us.. He said that
    we should not be heating our food in the microwave
    using plastic containers.

    This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
    He said that the combination of fat, high heat,
    and plastics releases dioxin into the food and
    ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he
    recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware,
    Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You
    get the same results, only without the dioxin. So
    such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and
    soups, etc., should be removed from the container
    and heated in something else.

    Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the
    paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass,
    Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago
    some of the fast food restaurants moved away from
    the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem
    is one of the reasons.

    Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as
    Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods
    to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is
    nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to
    actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip
    into the food. Cover food with a paper towel

    This is an article that should be sent to anyone
    important in your life.

    I have heard that we all have the cancer cells in all the body.... If they are activated is what causes the "cancer"..... don't know if that is true or not either but I have heard it from several sources.

    You know, BFW, it gets so confusing, doesn't it? Remember when broccoli had "cancer causing agents"? Then I think it was eggs..... All I know is that four of the six people in my family had or have cancer. My brother and myself are the only ones that haven't. Is it environmental? Is it genetic? Do alternative treatments work? We (my family) don't know the answer. And if I were diagnosed with Stage 3 or 4 cancer, I don't know what route I'd take -- chemotherapy vs. alternative.

    BTW, it was a very interesting article, which I promptly printed out. Thanks.

    My sister's doc told her the same thing about everyone having cancer cells in their bodies...sometimes they become active and sometimes they stay dormant. All kinds of factors will wake them up...she said sugar is one of those factors, sweets feed the little beasties. There were a lot of other ones...but I tuned out after sweets...I like my chocolate way too much! :wink:

    I can't comment on the content, but the info was not issued by John Hopkins:


    Any info like this that is forwarded to you should be taken with a HUGE pinch of salt. But of course, salt is bad for you :wink:

    Thanks for the snopes report, Mary. But, I have also heard that everyone has cancer cells in their body - wonder if that is true? And for the sweets/sugar thing - wow I should be riddled with cancer if that is true! LOL

    BW, please let us know what your doc says.
