Cancer Book-Chapter 1

Brace Yourself
What you are about to read will probably challenge everything you
have heard since you were born. From the crib, we have been
taught to blindly believe everything we read in the papers and on
the internet, what we hear on the radio, and what we watch on TV.
As a result, America is chock full of “sheeple” (i.e. people who are
meek like sheep, easily persuaded, intellectually dependent, and
tend to follow the crowd).
In this book, I am going to ask you to step outside “the box” and
actually think for yourself. I am going to ask you to get past the “no
way” factor which is common to most Americans. (Tanya Harter
Pierce, author of Outsmart Your Cancer, calls this the “disbelief
factor.”) When I first began to learn about successful alternative
cancer treatments almost a decade ago and would share the
knowledge with others, their common response was “NO WAY!”
You see, the “no way” factor is based on the misperception that if
“Any doctor in the United States who cures cancer using
alternative methods will be destroyed. You cannot name
me a doctor doing well with cancer using alternative
therapies that is not under attack. And I know these
people; I've interviewed them.” Dr. Gary Null
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
alternative cancer treatments really worked, then there is “no way”
that oncologists everywhere would still be using conventional
treatments. What most of us don’t realize is that most oncologists
also suffer from the “no way” factor since they believe that if
alternative cancer treatments were effective, then there is simply
“no way” that they would have graduated from medical school
without hearing about them. Unfortunately, medical schools are
largely funded by large pharmaceutical companies who have a
vested interest in conventional treatments, since the main goal of
ALL publicly traded companies (yes, even the pharmaceutical
companies) is increasing shareholder profits!
Well, the information in this book will likely shock you. At times,
your natural reaction will be skepticism, doubt, and disbelief. I
completely understand those reactions, as I have had them myself.
But if you are able to step outside “the box” for just a few hours
while you read this book, I know you will be glad that you did. As a
matter of fact, it may just save your life or the life of a loved one!
Conspiracy & the Cancer Industry
As the saying goes, “just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that
they’re not out to get you.” In the year 2006, conspiracy theories
abound, and there are just as many websites on the internet to
debunk them. Most of these conspiracy theories are nonsense, some
of them are plausible, and a few of them are quite likely the truth.
Folks, from what I can see, there is a “cancer conspiracy” alive and
well in the year 2006.
But this is nothing new. In the introduction to his book The Healing
of Cancer, Barry Lynes documents that this conspiracy has existed
for over half a century: “In 1953, a U.S. Senate Investigation
reported that a conspiracy existed to suppress effective cancer
treatments. The Senator in charge of the investigation conveniently
died. The investigation was halted. It was neither the first nor the
last of a number of strange deaths involving people in positions to do
damage to those running the nation’s cancer program.” Mr. Lynes
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
continues, “For many years, the American Medical Association
(AMA) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) coordinated their
‘hit’ lists of innovative cancer researchers who were to be
ostracized.” He quotes one investigative reporter as referring to the
AMA and the ACS as a “network of vigilantes prepared to pounce on
anyone who promotes a cancer therapy that runs against their
substantial prejudices and profits.”
Now, when I say that we have a “conspiracy” here, I do not mean
that I think there are evil men in dark glasses and trench coats,
sitting in dark rooms, and wringing their hands and laughing in
anticipation of another cancer death. It’s more of a de facto
conspiracy in which the love of money is causing people and
corporations alike to place more value on earnings per share than on
human life! Does this mean that all of the people who work in the
medical field and the cancer research field are consciously part of a
conspiracy to hold back a cure for cancer? Of course not. That
notion is patently absurd. Most doctors, nurses, and health care
professionals truly care about people and are doing what they
honestly believe is best for their patients. As a matter of fact, almost
everyone, including medical professionals, has been touched by
In his 1975 audio cassette, The Politics of Cancer, G. Edward Griffin
explains “let’s face it, these people die from cancer like everybody
else…it’s obvious that these people are not consciously holding back
a control [cure] for cancer. It does mean, however, that the
[pharmaceutical-chemical] cartel’s medical monopoly has created a
climate of bias in our educational system, in which scientific truth
often is sacrificed to vested interests…if the money is coming from
drug companies, or indirectly from drug companies, the impetus is
in the direction of drug research. That doesn’t mean somebody blew
the whistle and said ‘hey, don’t research nutrition!’ It just means that
nobody is financing nutrition research. So it is a bias where scientific
truth often is obscured by vested interest.”
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
I will demonstrate in this book that for the past century, there has
been a de facto conspiracy to do the following:
􀂾 Suppress alternative cancer treatments and persecute those
who advocate such treatments
􀂾 Brainwash the public to believe that chemotherapy,
radiation, and surgery (the “Big 3”) are the only options to
treat cancer
􀂾 Advertise and sell traditional cancer treatments such as the
“Big 3,” since the goal of the “Cancer Industry“ is to make
First of all, let me define some basic terminology, nicknames, and
slangs. “Big Medicine” is comprised of the National Cancer Institute
(NCI), the American Cancer Society (ACS), and the American
Medical Association (AMA). The ACS and NCI can be pictured as
the varsity cheerleaders for the pharmaceutical giants, herein
referred to as “Big Pharma,” while the AMA is nothing more than
the doctor’s labor union.
The network of corporate polluters, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, the
FDA (aka the “cancer cops”), industry front groups, and political
lobbying groups comprise the “Cancer Industry,” whose goal is to
maintain the status quo and keep the public unaware of alternative
cancer treatments, thus insuring shareholder profits for Big Pharma.
I cannot take credit for the terms used above – “Big Medicine,” “Big
Pharma,” and “Cancer Industry” were all coined long ago by other
In order to put things in perspective, let me tell you a little bit about
the roots of Big Medicine and Big Pharma. Let’s put on our history
caps and go all the way back to the year 1910 and learn about John
D. Rockefeller and the Flexner Report. I’ll bet you’ve never heard of
this report, have you? You see, Rockefeller’s goal was to dominate
the oil, chemical, and pharmaceutical markets, so his company
(Standard Oil of New Jersey) purchased a controlling interest in a
huge German drug/chemical company called I.G. Farben.
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
On a side note, I.G. Farben was the single largest donor to the
election campaign of Adolph Hitler. One year before Hitler seized
power, I.G. Farben donated 400,000 marks to Hitler, his Nazi party,
and his private army (the “SS”). Accordingly, after Hitler’s seizure of
power, I.G. Farben was the single largest profiteer of the German
conquest of the world during World War II. While millions of Jews
were being slaughtered, I.G. Farben was profiting.
I.G. Auschwitz, a 100% subsidiary of I.G. Farben, was the largest
industrial complex of the world for manufacturing synthetic
gasoline and rubber for the conquest of Europe. I.G. Auschwitz used
the concentration camp prisoners as “slave labor” in their factory.
But there was no “retirement plan” for the prisoners of I.G.
Auschwitz. Those who were too frail or too ill to work were selected
at the main gate of the I.G. Auschwitz factory and sent to the gas
chambers. Even the chemical gas Zyklon-B used for the annihilation
of millions of innocent people resulted from I.G. Farben’s drawing
boards and factories.
In 1941, Otto Armbrust (the I.G. Farben board member responsible
for the Auschwitz project), stated to his colleagues, “our new
friendship with the SS is a blessing. We have determined all
measures integrating the concentration camps to benefit our
company.” The I.G. Farben cartel used the victims of the
concentration camps as human guinea pigs. Tens of thousands of
them died during human experiments such as the testing of new and
unknown vaccinations. All in all, over 300,000 prisoners passed
through the I.G. Auschwitz facility. Over 25,000 were worked to
death, while countless others were murdered in the gas chambers or
by human experimentation. I don’t know about you, but this makes
me sick at my stomach!
You would think that after the end of the war, due to their
participation in the murder of millions of people at Auschwitz, I.G.
Farben board members would have been “blackballed” by U.S.
pharmaceutical companies. Think again. Ever heard of Bayer
Corporation …you know…they make Bayer Aspirin? In 1956, Bayer
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
appointed Fritz ter Meer, I.G. Farben board member and convicted
war criminal from the Nuremberg trials, as Chairman of its board.
(Joseph Borkin, The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben).
But I digress. Let’s go back to 1910 and back to our history lesson on
the Flexner Report. In order to build his drug cartel, Rockefeller
needed to “reeducate” the medical profession to prescribe more
pharmaceutical drugs, so he hired Abraham Flexner to travel the
country and assess the success of U.S. medical schools. In reality,
there was very little “assessing” going on by Flexner; the results of
his “study” were predetermined. Eventually, Flexner submitted a
report to The Carnegie Foundation entitled “Medical Education in
the United States and Canada.” Not surprisingly, the gist of the
report was that it was far too easy to start a medical school and that
most medical schools were not teaching sound medicine (i.e. they
weren’t pushing enough drugs).
Flexner reported that it was necessary to install a “doorkeeper” to
determine which medical schools were “allowed through the door”
and which ones must “remain outside.” The report was presented to
Congress, and they swallowed it hook, line, and sinker. As we see
quite often, politicians are quite willing to enact laws that rob us of
our constitutional freedoms under the banner of “public protection.”
Thus, the AMA became the new “doorkeeper,” and was empowered
to determine which medical schools were properly following the
standards of conventional medicine and which ones were not.
Contrary to popular notion, the AMA is not a governmental entity.
It is a private organization which began in 1847, and it is basically
the “physicians’ union.” The only difference between the AMA and
the steelworkers’ union is that the AMA members wear white
collars, while the steelworkers wear blue collars.
You see, the predetermined purpose of the Flexner Report was to
label doctors who didn’t prescribe drugs as “charlatans” and
“quacks.” Medical schools that offered courses in “quackery” (i.e.
natural therapies and homeopathy) were told to either drop these
courses from their curriculum or lose their accreditation. Is it any
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
wonder that the total number of accredited medical schools in the
U.S. was cut in half between 1910 and 1944? The end result of the
Flexner Report was that all “accredited” medical schools became
heavily oriented toward drugs and drug research.
Rockefeller’s plan was a smashing success, and conflicts of interest
between Big Pharma and Big Medicine continue to this day. In his
book, Cancer-Gate: How to Win The Losing Cancer War, Dr.
Samuel Epstein demonstrates that over the past century, the ACS,
NCI, and AMA have all become corroded with major institutional
and personal conflicts of interest with Big Pharma. As candidly
admitted by a recent NCI director, the NCI has become a
“government pharmaceutical company.” These close ties to Big
Pharma have transformed Big Medicine into cheerleaders for special
interests rather than stewards of the public interest. Epstein also
chronicles how, for monetary reasons, Big Medicine is suppressing
mountains of information about environmental causes of cancer
rather than making this information available to the public.
In his book The Politics of Cancer Revisited, Dr. Epstein states that
“the cancer establishment has also failed to provide the public,
particularly African American and underprivileged ethnic groups,
with their disproportionately higher cancer incidence rates, with
information on avoidable carcinogenic exposures, thus depriving
them of their right-to-know and effectively preventing them from
taking action to protect themselves – a flagrant denial of
environmental justice.” But why is the Cancer Industry silent? It’s
simple economics, folks. More cancer equals more sales of
chemotherapy drugs, more radiation, and more surgery.
You see, money, rather than moral ethics, is the deciding factor for
the Cancer Industry. To be honest, their goal is to provide temporary
relief by treating the symptoms of cancer with drugs, while never
addressing the cause of the cancer. This insures regular visits to the
doctor’s office and requires the patient to routinely return to the
pharmacy to refill his prescriptions. This is what the game is all
about folks, plain and simple. Big Pharma is nothing more than a
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
conglomeration of companies who are glorified drug pushers. Deny
it or deal with it. Stick your head back in the sand if necessary.
Think happy thoughts. Or keep reading and keep an open mind.
Your choice.
I have one request: please don’t disregard the facts contained in this
book just because your doctor never mentioned them to you, or
because some of them are hard to believe, or because the alternative
cancer treatments have been labeled “quackery” or “nonsense” by
Big Medicine, or because many of them are diametrically opposed to
the propaganda you hear on the nightly news. Please try to step
“outside the box” and open your mind to the possibility that you
have been lied to and that there are much better treatments than the
“Big 3” (chemo, radiation, & surgery) to treat cancer. Dr. Robert
Atkins put it best when he said, “There is not one, but many cures
for cancer available. But they are all being systematically suppressed
by the ACS, the NCI and the major oncology centers. They have too
much of an interest in the status quo.”
The Cancer War
The “War on Cancer” was officially declared by the Cancer Industry
and the Federal Government in 1971, and enthusiastically signed
into law by President Richard Nixon. In its 35th year now, it has in
reality become a quagmire, a “medical Vietnam,” an endless,
calculated “no-win” war on cancer, since countless billions of dollars
are being made each year by its perpetuation. Since 1971, over
$2,000,000,000,000 (that’s 2 trillion dollars) has been spent on
conventional cancer research and treatments. Nevertheless, despite
(or perhaps because of) these unparalleled costs, the Cancer Industry
remains largely closed to innovative ideas in the realm of alternative
cancer treatment. According to Dr. John Bailer, who spent 20 years
on the staff of the NCI and was editor of its journal, speaking at the
Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement
of Science in May 1985, “my overall assessment is that the national
cancer program must be judged a qualified failure.”
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
As a matter of fact, the Cancer Industry has waged another war…a
war with those who advocate the use of alternative cancer
treatments. At the root of this new war is the almighty dollar. Don’t
believe me? What are the top 5 alternative cancer treatments? Can
you even name ONE alternative cancer treatment? What is your
favorite TV show which focuses on alternative cancer treatments?
Have you ever seen a TV show on this topic? Big Medicine and Big
Pharma have the media in their pockets, thus the only cancer
treatments known to most of us are the “Big 3.” Unless you are an
internet junkie, it is likely that you have not been exposed to much
good information about alternative cancer treatments. Conventional
treatments pay the best, thus they are proclaimed as the most
effective treatments. It’s all about the economics of cancer, not
finding a cure.
Being a CPA, I tend to look at things from an “economic”
perspective. And I must tell you that from an economic perspective,
the Cancer Industry has the perfect business model. Big Pharma
(and also chemical companies) make huge profits from selling
carcinogenic chemicals that enter, or are intentionally put into, our
food, water, and air. Then, they make even more profits by
manufacturing and selling expensive, ineffective, toxic drugs to treat
the cancers and other diseases caused by their own products. Then,
in baseball lingo, they complete the “triple play” by selling
additional drugs to make the side-effects of the primary drugs more
bearable. In business lingo, the Cancer Industry is sitting on a “cash
cow.” Unfortunately, this cash cow is a scam at the expense of
cancer patients.
Now, to make the scam perfect, they let John and Jane Taxpayer (i.e.
you and me) fund their research into more ways to not cure cancer
while still pushing their drugs at obscene profits. To ensure that the
public remains blissfully unaware of the true facts about cancer, they
have set up front group “cheerleaders” (like the American Cancer
Society) to spread disinformation in the name of cancer education,
while the “cancer cops” (the FDA) are fighting a hostile “turf war” to
make sure that alternative cancer treatments remain suppressed and
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
the doctors that use these treatments are persecuted and run out of
the county.
One of the ways that this turf war is fought is through advertising.
Not only does Big Pharma make billions of dollars annually on the
sale of drugs, but they also dump billions of dollars into the
advertising of prescription drugs each year. And, since people in
America typically make their key decisions based solely on what
they see on TV and what they hear on the radio, is it any wonder
that we are largely uninformed concerning alternative cancer
treatments? The Cancer Industry has done everything in its power
to make sure you do not know the truth about alternative cancer
treatments. The TV stations and other media don’t dare broadcast
anything which may hurt one of their biggest advertisers – Big
Back in 1996, if I had been aware of the successful alternative cancer
treatments available, then it is very likely that my dad may not have
died. It makes me angry that the Cancer Industry suppresses
alternative cancer treatments, persecutes doctors that offer them,
and makes it next to impossible to gain access to these treatments,
thus causing the death of untold millions of cancer victims. This
next true story will break your heart.
The Alexander Horwin Story (in the words of his mother,
Raphaele): “On August 10, 1998 at age two, our son Alexander
Horwin was diagnosed with the most common pediatric brain
tumor, medulloblastoma. After Alexander endured two brain
surgeries my husband and I located the best non-toxic therapy that
had proven successful in treating brain cancer. However, on
September 21, 1998, the FDA denied Alexander access to this
potentially life-saving treatment.
The oncologists told us that without their “state-of-the-art”
chemotherapy, the cancer would soon return. We knew nothing of
the history, efficacy and actual danger of chemotherapy but
instinctively knew it was a poor choice for therapy. However, now
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
that the FDA had denied Alexander his best chance of survival using
a non-toxic therapy that had saved other children, we had no other
treatment options left. Reluctantly we started chemo on October 7,
1998. The protocol was entitled CCG 9921 which consisted of
intravenous administration of four chemo drugs: vincristine,
cisplatin, cyclophosphamide (also called cytoxan), and VP16 (also
called etoposide). Alexander completed his third month of
chemotherapy in December 1998 and died on January 31, 1999. He
was just two and a half years old.”
Yes, there is definitely a war between the Cancer Industry and
advocates of alternative cancer treatments. If you believe that Big
Medicine acts in the public’s best interest, then perhaps you should
read the book written by the first director the FDA, Dr. Harvey
Wiley, M.D. Dr. Wiley helped establish the FDA in 1906. In The
History of the Crime Against the Food Law, he describes the
absolute corruption that occurred within just a few years of its
founding. He quickly realized that its initial purpose had been
subverted, resigned, and then he wrote the book.
The same problems have persisted at the FDA for almost 100 years.
Big Medicine has a history of corruption and conflict of interests
with Big Pharma. According to former FDA commissioner, Dr.
Herbert Ley, “The thing that bugs me is that the people think the
FDA is protecting them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what
the public thinks it is doing are as different as night and day.” (San
Francisco Chronicle, 1/2/70).
In 1969, Dr. Ley testified before the Senate committee and described
several cases of deliberate dishonesty in drug testing. One case
involved a professor who had tested almost 100 drugs for 28
different drug companies. Dr. Ley testified, “Patients who died, left
the hospital, or dropped out of the study were replaced by other
patients in the tests without notification in the records. Forty-one
patients reported as participating in studies were dead or not in the
hospital during the studies.” (U.S. Senate, Competitive Problems in
the Pharmaceutical Industry, 1969)
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
In the early 1970s, an “internal affairs” type of FDA study revealed
that 1 in 5 doctors who carry out field research of new drugs had
“invented the data” they sent to the drug companies and pocketed
the fees. In other words, 20% of the doctors just made stuff up!
(Science, 1973, vol. 180, p. 1038). According to Dr. Judith Jones,
former Director of the Division of Drug Experience at the FDA, if
the data obtained by a clinician proves unsatisfactory towards the
drug being investigated, it is standard operating procedure for the
drug company to continue trials elsewhere until they get the
satisfactory results and testimonials they desire. Unfavorable results
are almost never published and clinicians are pressured into shutting
up. (Arabella Melville & Colin Johnson, Cured to Death - The
Effects of Prescription Drugs).
Keep in mind that the incentive for clinicians to fabricate data (i.e.
make stuff up) is enormous. Big Pharma pays clinicians up to $1,000
per subject, thus enabling many of these doctors to earn over $1
million a year from drug research alone. (John Braithwaite,
Corporate Crime in the Pharmaceutical Industry). And don’t be
fooled – clinicians know very well that if they do not produce
“favorable results” for Big Pharma, that their “gravy train” will soon
come to a screeching halt. Folks, the deck is stacked in this cancer
war. It’s heavily stacked against alternative cancer treatments.
To succeed in the cancer war, we must have people with the
fortitude to speak out without fear of being labeled “politically
incorrect.” Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, is one such warrior. In
his ever-so-candid style, he writes: “Western medicine has failed our
people. Today, even while prescription drugs are more frequently
consumed than ever before in the history of civilization, our nation
has skyrocketing rates of obesity and chronic disease. Western
medicine simply does not work. It is an outmoded system of
medicine dominated by the financial interests of pharmaceutical
companies, power-hungry officials at the FDA, and old-school
doctors whose myopic view of health prevents them from
exploring the true causes of healing. Modern medical schools
don’t even teach healing or nutrition. No practitioner of western
Chapter 1 – The Cancer Industry Cancer – Step Outside the Box
medicine has ever taught me a single thing about being healthy.”
My friend Webster Kehr describes the war in the following manner:
“When people hear the term ‘war,’ they think of guns, tanks, jet
airplanes and soldiers. They think about mindless tyrants shaking
their fists on television. But the war in medicine is very different.
The tyrants in this war hide their real intentions. This is a ‘war’
where the weapons are information. Welcome to the 21st century,
the century where Americas most dangerous and deadly enemies are
This cancer war is one of the most costly frauds (in terms of money
and human suffering) that has ever been perpetrated on the
American public. Staggering amounts of money have been spent in
its pursuit, but the “cancer emperor” is naked. One of my favorite
authors, C.S. Lewis, put it like this: “The greatest evil is not now
done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is
not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those
we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved,
seconded, carried and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and
well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut
fingernails, and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise
their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is
something like...the offices of a thoroughly nasty business concern”
(C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters, Introduction).
