As much as we’d like to believe our health care system is vehemently using every available resource to combat cancer in its goal to discover a CURE, the existing evidence contradicts this finding. The following quoted paragraphs come from Kaiser Health News (links provided if you choose to read the articles in their entirety.)
SIDE NOTE: The Following Black Bold Underlined Italics Are For Emphasis Only
“Overall cancer survival has barely changed over the past decade. The 72 cancer therapies approved from 2002 to 2014 gave patients only 2.1 more months of life than older drugs, according to a study in JAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery.“
“Two-thirds of cancer drugs approved in the past two years have no evidence showing that they extend survival at all, stated Dr. Vinay Prasad (Assistant Professor of Medicine, Knight Cancer Institute, Oregon Health and Sciences University.)”
“Recognizing the slow pace of progress, the American Society of Clinical Oncology has set goals for new cancer drugs of extending life or controlling tumors for at least 2.5 months. “Yet in a study published in September in JAMA Oncology, Mailankody found that only one in five cancer drugs approved from 2014 to 2016 met those standards.“
“Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society said he’s concerned that patients could be harmed by oncology drugs whose long-term side effects are unknown.”
“Patients and families are bombarded with the news that the country is winning the war against cancer. The news media hypes research results to attract readers. Drug companies promise “a chance to live longer” to boost sales. Hospitals woo paying customers with ads that appeal to patients’ fears and hopes.”
“I’m starting to hear more and more that we are better than I think we really are,” said Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society.”
“We’re starting to believe our own bullshit.”
The most effective approach to CANCER (as well as HEART DISEASE, TYPE 2 DIABETES, STROKE and OBESITY) has eluded our most intelligent doctors. These professionals have consciously chosen to treat diseases AFTER ONSET, rather than PREVENTING THEM by REQUIRING adequate patient compliance to following
ESSENTIAL LIFESTYLE HABITS
that create an internal environment in the body and mind where disease can’t exist/survive!
A doctor will DISMISS a patient for pharmaceutical (medication) non compliance, yet completely tolerate a patient’s SELF ABUSIVE LIFESTYLE that results in the “need” for these pharmaceutical drugs in the FIRST place. Has the medical and pharmaceutical industry become so large, their ETHICAL responsibilities to their patients have become secondary to the needs of their stock holders?
We are NOT winning any “war” on cancer or heart disease, or stroke or obesity. The health care industry is NOT SERIOUS about “curing” ANY of these conditions. If they were, they would be committed to ensuring their patients were following a LIFESTYLE that promoted HEALTH rather than DISEASE.
Choosing to follow a “traditional” lifestyle will likely result in cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke or obesity. The medical field has acknowledged their LACK OF SUCCESS in curing ANY of these diseases on a regular basis. This, however, has NOT significantly altered their treatments, reduced their costs or changed the suffering (you the patient) experience if you follow this FAILING approach to these DISEASES.
MAKE THE SYSTEM CHANGE EVEN IF IT’S ONLY ONE PATIENT AT A TIME!
DEMAND more from your doctors and allow them to DEMAND more from YOU! It’s the simplest, cheapest and most effective way to prevent ALL DISEASE and achieve a HEALTHIER quality of LIFE!
