Chemotherapy is an accepted method by the mainstream medical establishment as a means to fight against cancer, but its effectiveness and reliability is highly in question. Now, research even brings into question the effect chemotherapy has on your entire hereditary line, with researchers linking chemotherapy drug usage with DNA mutations that extend to your offspring.
You probably know somebody who has undergone some cancer treatment at one point or another. The effects of chemotherapy on the body are highly destructive, and often leave the cancer patient in a worse state than they were in before.
Unfortunately, using an unnatural chemical substance to effectively blast the cancer cells has the same effect on the healthy functioning cells as well. As a result, most chemotherapy patients are highly damaged by the process and sometimes sustain injuries that are irrevocable.
Three common drugs used for chemotherapy have been found to cause DNA mutations within the users. This is already highly dangerous, but according to new research, this damage may have the ability to pass into future generations. These findings shed light on the long term negative effects pharmaceuticals are having on our bodies. If the bodily effects were not enough to cope with, the use of these treatments may actually have a long term effect on the health of those to come afterward.
Considering the complex and awesome nature of DNA itself, any manipulation of genetic material - intentionally or not - is highly volatile and dangerous. It is a realm still largely unknown, and taking pokes in the dark is not the way to go.
Other cancer drugs such as imatanib (a leukemia drug that goes by the brand name Gleevec) and sunitinib (a drug for gastrointestinal tumors - brand name Sutent), have even been shown to cause tumors to 'metasize' aggressively. Although tumors initially reduce in size, they come back much stronger and grow much larger than their original size.
It is interesting that a majority of doctors who prescribe chemotherapy would not subject themselves to the same treatment, knowing the horrible effects it has on human health. Not only do mainstream doctors avoid drugs like chemotherapy, but they actually prefer alternative medicine in general.
The medical industry makes a large amount of money from using ineffective treatment measures. Drug makers simply would not profit if the mass population were to truly realize that health-promoting substances beat out over-priced pharmaceuticals and medical interventions. These expensive drugs don't even address the underlying root cause of illness.
Symptoms are a signal the body sends telling you that you need to change something fundamentally. If your car is overheating, do you address the underlying root cause, or simply try to blow away the smoke? Without finding and solving the root cause, the car will forever overheat and a 'solution' will always be needed. The mindset of band aid fixes and temporary relief does little in the pursuit of maintaining optimal health.
