New Study Finds Chemo Kills 50% of Patients In First 30 Days

The medical community has long touted chemotherapy as the only viable treatment for cancer, but a new study is showing that chemo, as has long been suspected, is actually itself, a killer. A new study in England shows that 50% of all cancer patients who receive chemotherapy treatments die within 30 days from the treatment, not the cancer.  One in five breast cancer patients receiving palliative care at Cambridge University Hospitals died from treatment.

Per the study’s conclusions:

Between Jan 1, and Dec, 31, 2014, we included 23 228 patients with breast cancer and 9634 patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in our regression and trust-level analyses. 30-day mortality increased with age for both patients with breast cancer and patients with NSCLC treated with curative intent, and decreased with age for patients receiving palliative SACT

Our findings show that several factors affect the risk of early mortality of breast and lung cancer patients in England and that some groups are at a substantially increased risk of 30-day mortality. The identification of hospitals with significantly higher 30-day mortality rates should promote review of clinical decision making in these hospitals. Furthermore, our results highlight the importance of collecting routine data beyond clinical trials to better understand the factors placing patients at higher risk of 30-day mortality, and ultimately improve clinical decision making. Our insights into the factors affecting risk of 30-day mortality will help treating clinicians and their patients predict the balance of harms and benefits associated with SACT.

The Magical Medicinal Properties Of Cayenne Pepper For Cancer, Digestion, Heart Disease & More

What if there was a common household spice that could rebuild the gut wall to improve digestion, destroy cancer cells, stop a heart attack in its tracks and was useful for weight loss? I’m assuming you’d want to know more about it, right?

The hot fruit of the cayenne plant (“capsicum redannuum”) has been used as a superb culinary spice for centuries and may be the most valuable medicinal herb in the entire plant kingdom for many of the reasons mentioned above !

High in vitamins A, C, B complex, calcium and potassium, studies have shown that cayenne can rebuild the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines. Moreover, cayenne acts as a catalyst and increases the effectiveness of other herbs and alternative cancer treatments.

Have you ever gone after the chips and salsa with gusto and then felt flushed while your nose started to run a little bit? Cayenne warms the body and stimulates the release of mucus from the respiratory passages. If you’ve ever eaten a fresh hot pepper, you know it clears the sinuses and causes sweating.

Olive oil can dramatically reduce your risk of breast cancer

olive-oils It is no surprise that olive oil has been at the foundation of one of this world’s longest-existing cultures. Its health benefits are nearly unrivaled and now there is yet another good reason to incorporate extra virgin olive oil into your diet: reducing the risk of breast cancer. A recent study in Spain concludes that just four spoons of olive oil per day reduce the risk of suffering breast cancer by 66 percent.

That is exciting news in the war against cancer, where conventional medicine has been more focused on treatment instead of prevention, and the incidence of recurrence has been exhaustively high. There are many heart-healthy reasons to make olive oil a regular part of your daily diet. You can now add cancer-prevention to the list.

Study: Purple Potatoes Help Prevent Colon Cancer

by PAUL FASSA

Colorectal or colon cancer is the number two cancer killer in the country. Of course, this is according to mainstream oncology. Many who have been stricken with colon cancer have survived in healthy fashion using “alternative” therapies.

Chris Wark of “Chris Beat Cancer” is a visible example. He encourages others who beat cancer without losing their health to the normal cut (surgery), burn (radiation therapy) and poison (chemotherapy) to contribute their success stories to his “Chris Beat Cancer” website.

But the best way to beat colon cancer is to prevent it by not indulging in a standard American diet (SAD), moderately exercising, and not stressing over all the stuff of modern living.

There is also a particular food that is powerful in preventing colon cancer, which has been proven by in vitro (labcultures) and in vivo (animal or human studies) – purple potatoes.

Pablo, 27, says his survival after terminal diagnosis is down to special diet

Pablo Kelly was given months to live after doctors found a terminal tumour in his brain.

He rejected chemotherapy in favour of a specialist, meat and fat-heavy diet and is still alive two years later.

At 25 years old Pablo, from Wrangaton, was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma multiforme – a terminal brain tumour. Due to the tumour’s position in Pablo’s brain it was also inoperable.

“I was devastated,” Pablo said.
