Cancer

Cancer Update from Johns 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 b 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 complications.

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 no feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON?
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 amino 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 soy 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 temperatures 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 becomes putrefied 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. Daily exercising and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

  10. Nice facts about cancer cells...YOu must be reading a lot to come out with this.. Our system has what we called APOPTOSIS (programmed cell death) to balance it out.
    I have seen so many cancer patient in my whole practice. I've lost most of them despite multiple options available. For few patients , eventhough i gave them HOPE...but it was their fate to end their journey of life with all measures we, medical personel have provided them. I broke into tears (of course not in front of them) as they rest in peace because treating them i considered a privellege to my whole life career !

  11. adila - i still remember i got a friend who stop eating meat all in sudden and didn't tell me anything even though i kept asking him what happen to him. after few months he told me that he was happy as he was free from cancer. i was speechless. he told me that he was so worry when the blood test was almost positive. i have no idea.

    he he no other meaning. this post is straight to the point. or you wanna say that revenge is like cancer... which spread in your body without you even notice its existence? he he he.

    kamal - not horoscope le... this one is real cancer. the deadly disease :P even doc died of cancer... imagine that :)

    riena - he got twisted brain lol. i hope both of you don't live based on horoscope. believe it or not, my friends believe in this nonsense ha ha.

  12. syukur - doc, to be a doc is not easy... i never doubt that. i salute and respect doc a lot.

    i understand your feeling to see them getting weaker and weaker each day. trust in you and keep the hope given by you.

    i met a doc near my office months ago. he was scared of cancer too as 5 of his friends who also doctors... died of cancer. they cure patient, give the best treatment but yet they couldn't help themselves. when they realized, it was too late... level 3 or worse.

    this remind me of a barber... who could cut people's hair but not his own. only God could pay :)

  13. Very informative, even though I just screened the post. hehe.. I watched a discovery channel about dogs who could sense cancer in human body in earlier stage. I wish they trained more dogs to do so :)

    FYI, as last two weeks, I have done a term paper about how Australian researchers finally have a breakthrough for HIV virus cure. It still undergoes testing, but I sure hope they will success. They use a ceramic nanofiltration to filter the viruses..

    About the horoscope thingy, I am Scorpion, love to read about it but only just for fun :D

  15. Faisal, my nephew was diagnosed with leukemia a couple of months back. He's about to turn 3 years old. All these are great ways to help combat but of course cancer cells have a mind of their own, in my opinion. No matter what we try or do, all we can do is hope.

    Now, he's back home and we are trying to make him as comfortable as possible. But yes, children are more resilient to sickness than adults because they don't know what's happening to their bodies and they are not affected psychologically. For the past few months going to the oncology ward in the children's hospital, is hard for me to witness but they are so brave. They're still laughing and playing as if they're just having a flu.

    So we adults should kick ourselves in the arse when we think we're having a bad day because you don't know what a bad day is until you see what they have to go through..

    Anyways, it's a really great and informative post. :)

  22. What a thourough and informative post. I just had two family brushes with cancer, so it is heavy on my mind lately. I strongly believe that proper diet and exercise go a long way toward preventing cancer. Green tea and all fruits high in antioxidants are a good start.

  28. BCD – Whoa! Dogs could sense cancer? I bet some Muslim will rear dog too if we have a lot of trained dog like this. After all, we can touch them via glove if we are afraid of its dryness.

    Hmm, I hope they could find a solution for HIV too. It has written in Al Quran that every disease there is a cure.

    I am Aquarius BCD. But seriously I don’t believe them he he he.
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Tammy – I am so sorry Tammy. I know how the feeling is… I hope I could share more information regarding cancer and how to prevent it. Chin up okay?
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Shemah – That is a sad story to read. I agree with you, we usually whining about and never grateful with the health we have even though we have been tested by God with a little cough, flu and so on.

    Is there any chance your nephew will be fine? Or the condition is worse than I thought? I’ll pray for him Shema…
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Kamal – After breaking fast, I always wonder why my dad could stop smoking for the whole day and spoil himself at night? If he could do it for whole day long, he could quit too for sure!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Suituapui – I’d agree with you. But we take it this way pal, if we think that way all the time… why don’t we jump off a building and pray that we could survive. If we don’t then it’s fated :)

    This reminds me of my negative thinking friend who always think negative. When I say you should save some money for your rainy day, he would say he is married and I am not. When I say you should work harder and get side incomes to live life better, he would say I am tired after work and have to look after family which I don’t. Then why get married at the first place if get married make you poor and unhappy? I see many other married couples who are rich and happy. Life is about choices. You decide :)
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Farah – Yes, usually when we could trace it. It would be way too late. Not only happen to us average people but also too doctors. Imagine that!

    Please post about him or her. I would like to know better and I always adore their spirit to struggle with life and continue live their life to the fullest.

    P/s: There is a man who said something like this “I am happy that I know when I am going to die rather than those who think they are going to live longer but die the next day!”
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Chivv – Well sugar is not good if we consume too much. You also need half of a Panadol of salt a day… but remember how much you consume today? :)

    Get rid of can drinks too!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Axim – You know, my neighbor… got cancer too! She told me that she always take care of what she eats and what she cooks. The whole family seldom buys food outside too. She was so frustrated when doctor certified she has cancer. She told doctor that she seldom eats junks and always cook at home with little consumption on sugar, salt and so on. Doctor told her that it is because her stress. Yes, she told me that she was so stress at work! You know what is she doing now? Be a housewife and run away from stress… yes she quitted right after she knew about it :)

    Thanks Axim. Glad that you like it…
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Mike – Yes, I watched your “Breakfast with Mike” video. It was sad to know about it and I had watery eyes earlier on reading your post about the wedding, plane and your dad.

    They need us to keep them stronger and strive for longer life.
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Abir – He he he ok bebeh. Nanti bro buatkan okeh?
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Ann – Sugary foods including your chocolate cake too! :) You still can eat them but lesser okay?
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Kamal – Ok tak? Hehe.
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Mummy – Ye akak. Kajian mendapati juga bahawa penduduk di bandar lebih terdedah dengan risiko kanser berbanding penduduk di luar bandar. Pelik bukan? Tapi itulah kebenaran :)
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Rush – Thanks bro sebab suka. Sekadar berkongsi info… :)

  35. "Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine." That's what the doc always tell me. But then again - coffee is my fav. I hope puasa will help me to forget coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Zuer - I didn't know that race is one of the factors. Are you sure? As far as I am concern, 1. Diet 2. Inheritance 3. Some say stress which will lead to dysfunctional body system. Correct me if I'm wrong :)
