Healing Cancer From Inside Out
by Mike Anderson
“I will not give poison to anyone.” That is a quaint, old-fashioned idea put forth by Hippocrates, alas, no longer in vogue. This DVD rips away the façade of the cancer industry and explains what the statistics really mean. Examples are given showing how the industry depends on meaningless relative numbers to exaggerate treatment benefits. Five year survival rates have improved only because of earlier diagnoses, while real survival rates have not changed significantly for fifty years. The truth becomes even more inconvenient for the industry when you look at the list of studies from the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Lancet, the New England Journal of Medicine, and other prestigious publications showing that untreated patients live longer than treated patients. The bad news gets even worse when you consider the fact that the treatments of choice are quite barbaric. Senator Hubert Humphrey called chemotherapy “bottled death.” Charles Huggins, MD, said, “There are worse things than death. One of them is chemotherapy.”
There are many ways to lie or distort the truth with numbers. Eighty percent of all statistics are wrong—including this one.
The movie does well at sorting through the statistics and even explaining things like the AMA’s war against chiropractors, homeopathy and anything that worked. The consensus of the experts in the film is that changing one’s diet is the most effective answer to cancer. That sounds like a good answer but I know trouble is brewing when I see names like T. Colin Campbell and Dr. John McDougall. They still sing the same tune, promoting a change to a vegetarian diet. Several testimonials are given by people who made the switch and their cancer problems went away. I don’t really have any trouble believing that. Changing from SAD to almost anything else can manifest miraculous improvement in the short run. The long term is another story and that story is why this story ends with a thumb pointing down. THUMBS DOWN.
