Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.
This drug doesn't require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies.
Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human's cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. It was tested on Rats inflicted with severe tumors; their cells shrank when they were fed with water supplemented with DCA. The drug is widely available and the technique is easy to use, why the major drug companies are not involved? Or the Media interested in this find?
In human bodies there is a natural cancer fighting human cell, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered to be effective. Scientists used to think that these mitochondria cells were damaged and thus ineffective against cancer. So they used to focus on glycolysis, which is less effective in curing cancer and more wasteful. The drug manufacturers focused on this glycolysis method to fight cancer. This DCA on the other hand doesn't rely on glycolysis instead on mitochondria; it triggers the mitochondria which in turn fights the cancer cells.
The side effect of this is it also reactivates a process called apoptosis. You see, mitochondria contain an all-too-important self-destruct button that can't be pressed in cancer cells. Without it, tumors grow larger as cells refuse to be extinguished. Fully functioning mitochondria, thanks to DCA, can once again die.
With glycolysis turned off, the body produces less lactic acid, so the bad tissue around cancer cells doesn't break down and seed new tumors.
Pharmaceutical companies are not investing in this research because DCA method cannot be patented, without a patent they can't make money, like they are doing now with their AIDS Patent. Since the pharmaceutical companies won't develop this, the article says other independent laboratories should start producing this drug and do more research to confirm all the above findings and produce drugs. All the groundwork can be done in collaboration with the Universities, who will be glad to assist in such research and can develop an effective drug for curing cancer.

This article wants to raise awareness for this study, hope some independent companies and small startup will pick up this idea and produce these drugs, because the big companies won't touch it for a long time.
Comment: It seems clear at this point that the medical industry will never find a cure for cancer. Why? Because there's just too much money being made in the cancer industry! And unfortunately its existing "best" treatments like chemotherapy don't work, and may even make cancer worse.
However, all is not lost! While cancer is a complicated disease and there are likely multiple factors at play and no silver bullet, understanding the root causes of cancer is a key to being able to cure it.
Emotional aspect of Cancer
First, it's likely that in every incidence of cancer, there are unhealed emotional wounds that need to be addressed. Long term chronic stress and an inability to say no can play significant factors in cancer development due to prolonged oxidative stress on cells from stress and compromised immunity due to the link between emotional well-being and the immune system, the nervous system and the hormonal apparatus. Dr. Gabor Maté covers this connection in his book When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection. From our article Dr. Gabor Maté: "When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection":
The Vancouver-based Dr. Gabor Maté argues too many doctors seem to have forgotten what was once a commonplace assumption, that emotions are deeply implicated in both the development of illness and in the restoration of health. Based on medical studies and his own experience with chronically ill patients at the Palliative Care Unit at Vancouver Hospital, where he was the medical coordinator for seven years, Dr. Gabor Maté makes the case there are important links between the mind and the immune system. He finds stress and individual emotional makeup play critical roles in an array of diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis and arthritis.So saying "no" and taking the time and energy to heal past emotional trauma, whether through therapy, writing to heal, body work, stress reduction techniques, and/or other methods for addressing and healing trauma could both help to cure the cancer and also help a person make different life choices that will remove them from toxic situations that contribute to cancer, while putting them into more healthy situations.
Breathing techniques for stress relief and emotional release can also help significantly, like Éiriú Eolas.
Environmental toxicity and Cancer
Next, related to toxic situations, toxic people, and toxic emotions, are environmental toxins. Due to industrialization and numerous mega corporations with a psychopathic mentality and no concern for polluting the planet, the world has become quite significantly toxic. There are a wide array of environmental toxins, ranging from synthetic chemicals, artificial sweeteners, flavors, and fats, radioactive elements (from nuclear waste and nuclear explosions), heavy metals, natural toxins that are released from energy and manufacturing industries, along with natural toxins due to parasitic microorganisms that are in our bodies, and even our own waste from metabolic processes in the body. These toxins put a stress load on the body and cause organ dysfunction and even damage, so reducing and eliminating the introduction of toxins into the body is a key to healing the body.
Avoiding toxic foods would be the first step in the process of reducing one's exposure to toxins. This includes ALL fast foods, the vast majority of prepackaged foods (check the ingredients), and foods that contain anti-nutrients (the biggest offenders being wheat especially, but all grains in general, dairy except butter and ghee, soy, legumes, and nightshades). Fast foods are loaded with agricultural toxins (primarily produced by Monsanto) and heavy metals, so this introduces a significant toxic burden on the body. As well, fast foods are inflammatory and lack nutrition, so in addition to putting stress on the body they don't provide the nutrition that the body needs to be able to heal. As well, reducing the toxins within your immediate environment (household cleaners, personal care products, soaps, shampoos, perfumes, non-stick cooking pans, etc.) - anything you use in your house, car, office, and especially put on your skin, will also help reduce the toxic burden on your body. Detoxing and improving organ function (especially the liver and kidneys) will likely be essential as part of healing from cancer.
Cancer feeds on sugar
The link between cancer and sugar consumption is very strong. For just a quick overview of some of the articles that we have on the topic:
- New research shows that sugar doesn't just feed cancer -- it causes it
- Cancer & Sugar - Strategy for selective starvation of cancer
- The key to future cancer treatments: Starving cells of sugar
- What does cancer eat? Sugar, mostly, and other lessons from my dinner with a professor of pathology
- Sugar makes cancer light-up in MRI scanners
Sugar does a number of things that are significantly detrimental to the human body. It increases oxidative stress and since Cancer is the end state of oxidative stress and inflammation, it needs to be avoided, possibly entirely for some. Considering the huge amounts of sugar that the average person consumes, which is far, far more than our ancestors would have ever even dreamed of consuming, it should come as no surprise that we're seeing higher and higher rates of cancer in the world, and especially in America where consuming vast amounts of sugar is the norm. Reducing or eliminating sugar reduces the oxidative stress on the body and reduces inflammation, which improves organ function and deprives cancer of its food source, which limits its ability to grow.
EMF pollution linked to increase in cancer
EMF (Electromagnetic Frequency) pollution has also been consistently linked to cancer increases. The body has its own electromagnetic field and as the body is continually exposed to Wifi, cell phones, dirty AC power, and other sources of electromagnetic radiation, it disrupts the homeostasis of the body's electromagnetic field in negative ways, which can cause a variety of health problems. It's best to avoid electromagnetic radiation whenever possible, through using wired internet connections instead of Wifi, limiting cell phone usage and using a wired hands-free device (since wireless ones also broadcast electromagnetic radiation) to limit the exposure of the brain to EMF radiation, being as far away from the wireless "smart meters" as possible, and reducing any dirty power in the house as possible (consider an EMF detector to find any dirty power). This can also improve sleep, which is necessary for repairing and rejuvenating the body. Grounding yourself (also known as "earthing") can also help.

Considering the sugar-craving nature of both cancer and fungal overgrowths in the body, it seems logical to suspect that there may be a link between the two in some cases. There is some evidence to support this:
- Death by Fungi?
- Overlooked and Undetected Infections - From Fungus!
- Research confirms: Yeast is a cause of cancer & turmeric can kill both
- Could a hidden fungal overgrowth be making you ill?
Some alternative treatment options: The Ketogenic diet, Vitamin C, and Iodine
Putting it all together, the ketogenic diet, a high fat, low carbohydrate diet that focuses on meats and healthy animal fats, is a comprehensive approach to treating cancer. It reduces toxic burden on the body by cutting out the biggest contributors to toxic load (junk pseudo-foods, sugar, and inflammatory foods) on the body. It reduces oxidative stress through the reduction of toxins and sugar consumption. It also starves cancer of the sugar that it needs for its hyper-active metabolism.
It also nourishes the body by providing it with the nutrients it needs, both micro-nutrients (ie vitamins and minerals) and macro-nutrients (fat and protein). As well, despite the mainstream's demonization of meat and fat and the claims that they cause cancer, nothing could be further from the truth:

Iodine is an essential micro-nutrient. This means every single cell of every single person needs it. Evolutionary biologists reckon that seafood consumption, and thus iodine absorption, played an important role in human brain development and evolution. Iodine also has excellent antibacterial, anticancer, antiparasitic, antifungal, and antiviral properties.Iodine is generally needed in milligram doses, rather than the microgram (1/100 milligram) doses that are recommended to prevent goiter, especially due to the prevalence of the toxic halogens discussed above. Since every cell needs iodine to function properly and since it has anti-cancer and anti-pathogenic properties, in addition to being a fairly potent detoxifier and stimulating metabolism, it should be an essential tool for any type of anti-cancer treatment. For additional information on the role iodine plays in combating cancer:
Unfortunately, iodine deficiency in the general population is of pandemic proportions in our modern world due to iodine's displacement in our bodies by environmental toxins such as bromide, pesticides, and food additives. Modern farming techniques have also led to deficiencies of iodine and other minerals in the soil. Thus, crops grown in iodine-deficient soil are deficient in iodine.
Certain diets and lifestyles can also predispose a person to develop iodine deficiency. Those who eat a lot of bakery products (breads, pasta, etc), which contain high amounts of bromide, are at risk. So are vegetarians and those who don't like sea food, sea vegetables or salt.
According to Dr. Brownstein, author of Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can't Live Without It, about one-third of the global populations live in a region of iodine deficiency. He and other iodine researchers have tested thousands of people, and found consistent results: approximately 96% of patients test low for iodine. The World Health Organization has recognized that iodine deficiency is the world's greatest single cause of preventable mental retardation. Iodine deficiency has been identified as a significant public health problem in 129 countries and up to 72% of the world's population is affected by an iodine deficiency disorder.
