The Truth about Cancer, Chemotherapy, Mammography:
“Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy… Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade. Yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumours… Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemo than without it.” – Alan Levin, M.D.
MAMMOGRAM DANGERS: NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE (NCI):
The NCI research show that ‘among women under 35, mammography could cause far more cases of breast cancer than it identifies’. A Canadian study found a 52% increase in breast cancer mortality in young women who have received annual mammograms. Mammography Is Dangerous Besides Ineffective, Warns Samuel S. Epstein, M.D. [pg 194]
CHICAGO, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ — the following was released by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition and Professor Emeritus of Environmental and Occupational Medicine, University of Illinois School of Public Health:
‘Screening mammography poses significant and cumulative risks of breast cancer for pre-menopausal women. The routine practice of taking four films of each breast annually results in approximately 1 rad (radiation absorbed dose) exposure, about 1,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray. The premenopausal breast is highly sensitive to radiation, each 1 rad exposure increasing breast cancer risk by about 1% with a cumulative 10% increased risk for each breast over a decade’s screening. These risks are even greater for younger women subject to baseline screening.
CANCER: NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE (NCI) TEST RESULTS:
The data contained in the 1969 paper from Dean Burk and his group at the National Cancer Institute showed that ascorbic is highly toxic to the carcinoma cancer cells.
Ascorbic also caused profound structural changes in the cancer in their laboratory cultures.
The great advantage that ascorbates possess as potential anticancer agents is that they are, like penicillin, remarkably non-toxic to normal body tissues, and they may be administered to animals in extremely large doses (up to 5 or more grams per kilogram) without notable harmful pharmacological effects. A minimum 5 grams per kilogram on a 70-kilogram adult would amount to 350 grams (35000mgs) of ascorbic acid per day. They further state; In our view, the future of effective cancer chemotherapy will not rest on the use of host-toxic compounds now so widely employed, but upon virtually host non-toxic compounds that are lethal to cancer cells, of which ascorbate represents an excellent prototype example. [pg 195]
The ineffectiveness and dangers of mammography pose an agonising dilemma for the millions of women anxious for reassurance of early detection of breast cancer.
However, the dilemma is more apparent than real. As proven by a September 2000 publication, based on a unique large-scale screening study by University of Toronto epidemiologists, monthly breast self-examination (BSE) following brief training, coupled with annual clinical breast examination (CBE) by a trained health care professional, is at least as effective as mammography in detecting early tumours, and also safe.
National networks of BSE and CBE clinics staffed by trained nurses should be established to replace screening mammography. Apart from their minimal costs, such clinics would empower women and free them from increasing dependence on industrialised medicine and its complicit medical institutions. Unquote

DANGEROUS, UNNECESSARY METHODS USED TODAY [pg 196]
After diagnosis, the physician has three different paths, or a combination of them from which to choose: irradiation, chemotherapy, or surgery.
Irradiation is localised exposure to x-rays or to the radiant energy of radioactive sources, such as radium or cobalt 60, to try to kill the fast-growing cancerous tissue without doing too much damage to the rest of the body.
Chemotherapy involves the use of chemical substances that attempt to damage the cancer tissue more than the normal cells and thus retard the cancer development.
Chemicals are used to selectively poison the cancer cells. One group of materials used in cancer chemotherapy is the so-called nitrogen mustards, which are derivatives of the mustard gases of World War I; you can conceive the type of material used in this therapy. While the chemotherapeutic agent will attack the cancer cells, the patient is left without means to overcome the toxic side effects.197
ASCORBIC ACID IN CLINICAL TRIALS
Ever since the discovery of ascorbic acid in the early 1930s, there has been a vast amount of animal experimentation and clinical research conducted on the relationship of ascorbic acid to cancer.
Negative results were only found when too small amounts of ascorbic acid were used.
THE CHEMOTHERAPY NATIONAL SERVICE CENTRE REFUSED TO TEST ASCORBIC:
There is a screening program that has been going on for years to find new cancer-killing materials at the Chemotherapy National Service Centre, yet Ascorbic acid has been bypassed, excluded from consideration, and never tested for its cancer-killing properties.
YOU CAN IMAGINE the billions of dollars lost from chemotherapy drugs sales if a safe, cheap, totally non-toxic, alternative such as simple ascorbic have been an influence for this? [pg 198]
The absurd reason given by the Chemotherapy National Service Centre for not screening ascorbic acid, or even testing its capabilities in any way shape or form, and the only excuse they could come up with for not doing so, is almost unbelievable if it were not true. They stated:
ASCORBIC ACID WAS TOO NON-TOXIC TO FIT INTO THEIR PROGRAMME!
