What exactly are you aware of?
The fact that scurvy was treated with citrus fruits or that it took a while longer to specify the exact compound involved?
And going back to your previous post, the other "theories" are not proper theories. True theories have been tested, reproducibly proven and used
reliably to make predictions about what will happen under further testing.
The majority of the tosh in this thread is little more than supposition and and a hatred and/or distrust of the medical establishment.
The fungus one cracks me up every time and for those who really believe in the acid/alkaline story, please learn some basic human physiology before
you start mouthing off about it.
While there's an awful lot of truth in having a healthy diet and the prevention of cancer the most it can do is HELP prevent it. It doesn't cure
I've been researching into cancer treatments for over 10 years now and I will give EVERY single hypothesis equal time and thought. There have been
times when I've thought they've managed to find something which is going to change the rules but unfortunately, since this isn't just one disease
but many, one single method of attack won't give us a panacea.
What people have to also take into account (and I find that certain people who extol the virtues of "natural medicine" are the most guilty ones in
ignoring this piece of information) is that the alternative medicine BUSINESS is worth in excess of $50 billion a year. Yes, it's a BIG BUSINESS just
like pharma but with few, if any at all, guidelines to follow.
I'm not for any particular method of countering this horrific disease. Personally I believe that the only thing you can do is to limit your chances
of developing it but even then, I've known people who have lived a healthy life with almost zero risk-factors and they've developed it.
The web is awash with a myriad of cancer treatments and cures all preying on the desperation of the sufferers and their families hoping to avoid the
likes of surgery, chemo and/or radiation treatment. Yes, those treatments are almost as horrific as the disease itself but at the moment they offer
the best chance we have.
Believe me, if something (anything!) comes up which gives us a better chance of survival without the side effects of the treatments listed above,
I'll be standing on the rooftops shouting about it.
I really hope I'm able to do that in my lifetime.
