Cancer industry not looking for a cure; they’re too busy making money

It may sound ridiculously cynical to some, but there are many who believe that cancer is too big a business (meaning too lucrative) to ever actually cure. And they say the proof is in the numbers. As noted by Your News Wire, if any of the existing low-cost, natural and alternative cancer treatments were ever to be approved, then […]

Study Reveals Many Cancer Patients Are Killed By Chemotherapy, Not Cancer

By Alex Pietrowski  Listen to Article In 2018, a headline for an article in The Economist succinctly captured the paradox that is the global cancer industry: “Cancer is a Curse, but Also a Growth Market for Investors.” Cancer’s definitely a curse, that’s for sure, but cancer drugs, with chemotherapy drugs taking up the lion’s share, are on pace to become […]

Is chemotherapy worth it? Studies prove that the chemical intervention actually worsens quality of life and has no benefit to overall survival

Chemotherapy may be the cornerstone of conventional cancer treatment, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Studies continue to demonstrate that chemo isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In addition to worsening quality of life, past research has shown that up to 50 percent of patients on chemo will die — from the drugs, and […]

New Study Reveals Many Cancer Patients Are Killed By Chemotherapy & Not The Cancer

Up until recently, chemotherapy and radiation have been the only two approved treatment methods for treating cancer by mainstream medicine, but as more research emerges, light is being shed on just how damaging these treatment methods can be and how often they are the cause of death and not the cancer itself. Upon this discovery, […]

Chemotherapy linked to mitochondrial dysfunction in skeletal muscle

A study published in the American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology has found that chemotherapy can cause adverse effects on the skeletal muscle of patients undergoing treatment. In the study, researchers from the University of Vermont looked at whether chemotherapeutics for breast cancer impact skeletal muscle structure and protein expression. The researchers involved 13 women diagnosed with breast cancer and […]

Chemotherapy revealed as toxic poison for every living cell in the human body: Mitochondrial dysfunction warning from researchers

Chemotherapy is not medicine; it is not a therapy at all. A new study published in the American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology lambastes chemotherapy for causing mitochondrial dysfunction in patients’ muscles. This is not some simple side effect. This is a direct debilitating effect inflicted on patients, a condition that causes fatigue, weakness, oxidative stress, and muscle […]

Chinese medicine can battle multi-drug resistance caused by chemotherapy

Researchers from China have compiled data that reveals the efficacy of Chinese medicines in treating complications from cancer treatment. The findings were published in the Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine. One of the leading causes of failure during cancer chemotherapy treatment is multidrug resistance (MDR). In the study, researchers addressed the need to develop agents to […]

Chemotherapy found to stop new brain cells from growing, worsening depression in brain cancer patients

Chemotherapy is depressing enough, but a drug used in the procedure may heighten it and make it worse, according to a study by researchers from King’s College London. Depression is considered one of the least recognizable symptoms of cancer since the condition is commonly attributed to the shock of the patient upon hearing the news. The […]

New research finds that routine breast cancer tests lead to unnecessary mastectomies and chemotherapy

New research finds that routine breast cancer tests lead to unnecessary mastectomies and chemotherapy

Are women’s fears of breast cancer driving them to get unnecessary, dangerous treatments like chemotherapy and mastectomies? A pair of studies shows just how much women are endangering their lives for no benefit after getting a diagnosis. The first is an unsettling U.K. study that looked at more than 2,700 women who were 40 or younger when […]

Chemotherapy-how did mustard gas from a blown up WWII ship get into your veins?

How many people ask their MD questions about chemotherapy? Have you ever wondered how such a toxic substance (so toxic that those who administer it must wear gowns and gloves) became the “standard of care” for cancer? The truth of its origin is as far away from a scientific laboratory as one could imagine! In […]
