|People connected with cancer research all know that the long term survival of breast cancer patients is about 17%. So why all of a sudden are we hearing that due to new treatments breast cancer survival has shot up to 65%? Simple.. to quote Mark Twain, "there are three kinds of lies... little white lies, damnable lies and then you have statistics". How did the cancer industry manipulate statistics to make it look like things were better?
It was a three part scheme. A few years ago the reporting standards changed, suddenly a breast cancer patient who died of chemo poisoning was removed from the statistics, because she didn't die of breast cancer technically, she actually died from the chemo or the surgery or other medical mistakes.
Part two was they changed the definition of survival. It used to be 20 years of non-recurrance. Suddenly they decided that being alive after 5 years, even if you had cancer and it was progressing, was acceptable survival.
Part three was they changed the definition of breast cancer. It used to be if you had breast cancer you had breast cancer. A few years back they decided the definition of breast cancer was having one lump less than a centimeter in size which had not metastized.. so if you had two lumps or the one lump was bigger than the tip of your little finger or it had spread, you magically did not have breast cancer.
The pathetic part is that with those breast cancer definitions, if you have a lump smaller than one centimeter you have an excellent chance of being alive five years later if you do nothing at all. Breast cancer does go into remission with chemo, but it usually comes back.
In addition, in about 5 out of a thousand patients, the chemo itself causes leukemia.
The following is a quote from a respectable research institution.
Patients with early-stage breast cancer treated with preventive or adjuvant chemotherapy face an increased risk for leukemia that does not justify the modest survival benefit of additional treatment, say US researchers.
They found that early-stage breast cancer patients treated with adjuvant or preventive chemotherapy have a cumulative risk of developing leukemia at 10 years of 0.5%, almost twice the rate reported in previous studies.
In a release, study author Judith Karp, MD, professor emerita of oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, commented: "The frequency of bone marrow cancers such as leukemia is small, there's no question about it."
"However, the cumulative risk over a decade is now shown to be twice as high as we thought it was, and that risk doesn't seem to slow down 5 years after treatment," Dr Karp said.
Treating early stage breast cancer with photodynamic therapy is usually successful, more so than treating breast cancer with surgery or chemo or radiation. There is a new thing happening, women are having preventative mastectomies. What they are not aware of is that this does not reduce the chances of breast cancer any considerable amount
When the photodynamic therapy uses the right wavelength of light it penetrates breast tissue really well. Even a very large breast will pass light from the bottom to the top. If the breast is infected with cancer, even very early stage which cannot be detected by mammograms, the breast tissue will stop the light before it gets more than a couple of centimeters in. When you use the laser on patients with breast cancer on one side only it is amazing how much less the light penetrates through the breast that has cancer.
Even so light penetrates through breast tissue well enough to treat even large masses. We treated one woman whose left breast was solid cancer, but after treatment the tissue converted to normal breast tissue.
Breast cancer typically goes to the lymphatics first, then the spine and ribs, then the brain. We have killed breast cancer mets in all of those places.
One of the most tragic aspects of breast cancer treatment is that in addition to surgically mutilating the breast, they more often than not remove lymph nodes because breast cancer has infitrated them. The absurd part is that this does nothing to prevent breast cancer reoccurance. If the breast cancer has infiltrated the axial sentinel nodes, you can bet it is already in the spine and usually in the lungs liver and brain as well. As the breast cancer passes through the lymphatics straight away, cutting out lymph nodes does nothing for extending breast cancer remission, it just dooms the patient to a lifetime of wearing compression stockings to limit edema.
Survival of breast cancer is definitely shortened by chemo surgery and radiation. Almost any alternative treatment is superior to conventional treatment.
A comprehensive holistic treatment like we use is vastly superior to any other treatment protocol.
Testing Mammography is known to CAUSE breast cancer, never submit to mammography. Under no circumstance should you allow a biopsy to be done, that ALWAYS spreads the cancer. Pet scans, CT scans and MRI's can not distinguish between benign inflammatory processes and cancer. There are only two reliable and safe techniques to test for breast cancer. If you want to go hard core scientific route find a lab that does ELASTOGRAPHY. It is proven to be more accurate than a biopsy in determining what is dangerous and what is not a problem.
