Man With Stage 3 Colon Cancer Refuses Chemotherapy & Cures Himself With Vegan Diet

Chris Wark shares his short and powerful testimony of how he refused chemotherapy and survived stage 3 colon cancer. We often hear of alternative methods and treatments for cancer, but rarely are they used and implemented by individuals primarily due to the fear factor. Those diagnosed with cancer are heavily encouraged by doctors, family and peers to seek mainstream treatments like chemotherapy.

Although the cancer tumour was removed, it had already spread to his lymph-nodes. Identified infected ones were also taken out.

 

Email I received from Chris:

Surgery does not cure cancer, especially not stage 3. If it did, that’s all they would do. There would be no need for chemo and radiation. The medical industry has known that surgery does not cure cancer for at least 100 years. Cancer is a systemic metabolic disease, the result of a body that is nutrient deficient, overloaded with toxins, and has an overloaded or suppressed immune system. If the body is not given the essential nutrients it needs to repair, regenerate and detoxify, cancer will most assuredely come back after surgery. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, juices and smoothies is the most powerful way to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. All processed food must be eliminated. Animal products should be severely restricted or eliminated for a season until the cancer is gone. And it’s ok if some people don’t believe me. I know lots of survivors that have healed cancer without surgery, but skeptics won’t believe them either.

That’s the cliff notes.

Granted, cancer is a multi-billion dollar industry which would make it hard for one to market studies that go against traditional treatments like chemotherapy. There was a study published in August 2003 that revealed of adult cancer in the USA and Australia, the use of chemotherapy only provided a cure 2.1 % of the time.  The study undertook a literature search for randomized clinical trials which saw a 5-year survival rate that was attributed solely to cytotoxic chemotherapy in adult malignancies. The data was taken from the cancer registry in Australia and from the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results data in the USA for 1998. As stated, the final results show that the overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA. You can take a look at that here.

Alternative treatments can range from baking soda, cannabis, hemp oil and much more. There are a number of studies that prove the validity of alternative cancer treatments. Often, we receive comments on our articles concerning cancer from people who fail to research prior to commenting.

It has been shown that a plant based diet can prevent over 60% of chronic disease deaths.

The University of Alberta, Canada also recently discovered a cure for cancer. It’s called dichloroacetate, and it’s receiving zero attention from the medical industry due to its inability to generate a profit.

Good little clip here with lots of truth.

        Excessive bicarbonate ingestion places patients at risk for a variety of metabolic derangements including metabolic alkalosis, hypokalemia, hypernatremia, and even hypoxia. The clinical presentation is highly variable but can include seizures, dysrhythmias, and cardiopulmonary arrest. (I think that’s what Naia Monkyavich is getting at).

    You CANNOT cure cancer by switching to a vegan diet. There is no cure for cancer. Any causal link between cancer and diet remains unproven.

    I would have thought this was obvious to any free-thinking individual, yet this ignorant, silly assertion is still being pandered upon the gullible.

    The power to close the mind in the name of keeping the mind “open” is astonishing.

      Understanding the science/biology of cancer has more to do with it than being a “free thinker”. Our society panders the notion that cancer is curable and makes big profits on it too (Komen Foundation, etc), but it is really something we should try to Stop and Prevent instead. People misuse the word. I wish people would say that they “prevented”, “reversed” or “stopped the progression of” cancer as cancer will always exist.

      Re: Diet and cancer: the list is getting mighty long of folks that have reversed or stopped the progression of cancer (and other diseases) with a vegan diet, including myself. Kaiser Permanente even recommends plant based diets now. Good luck with that one…

      Perhaps one cannot cure cancer through eating a vegan diet. But perhaps, just perhaps, eating a diet which isn’t so rich in highly processed foods is enough to ensure the body can regulate its cell cycle itself. That’s not as ignorant and silly an assertion as you may be indicating.
      And I would suggest that your mind is also not as open as you may think. If it is, try a vegan diet for a year, and see what the results are.

      Well your first statement is clearly wrong as at least some form of a Vegan diet cured Chris Wark.. certainly worth looking into. You say it will never be proven and you are probably right as nobody will spend the 100 million dollars to bring this through full clinical trials when the cures are un-patentable (although Nestle is trying with Fennel!) with no means to make money or return ones investment! I just dont understand how people like yourself dont get the vested interest that Big Pharama has to protect their industry and prevent cheaper cures form undermining their business.. can you at least acknowledge that point?

      It has been said that the only thing absolute is that nothing is absolute. If that be the case, then the word “CANNOT” would be incorrect to use in this context. To say that since a cure has not been discovered it must not exist is very ignorant. There are many valid studies that indicate diet is directly related to health issues such as cancer, and there are many stories around that purport a change in diet has cured diseases such as cancer. Considering most recognized pharmaceuticals start out as research involving known substances and their ability to affect the composition of the target, and that most of these substances are organic to begin with; it is also saying that most pharmaceuticals start life as a substance found in nature, hence the consumption of these substances may also help prevent and/or diminish the target’s ability to cause us health issues.

      Simply stating that since chemotherapy is the only remedy for cancer that YOU know of, does not mean that other remedies do not exist. Nature has proven over and over its ability to heal pretty much whatever is thrown at it, whereas the human record in that area is not quite so good. In this area you, my friend, are the one closing your mind. To irresponsibly report a “cure” as fact is one thing, but to offer possible alternatives is another. Possible alternatives that are discovered also help the scientific process of discovery, which in itself can possibly lead to a cure where had the discovery not been investigated maybe a cure would be missed. Even penicillin was discovered entirely by accident, had Fleming not been a messy lab technician it may still not have been discovered.

      With all this said, either you prop up the pharma industry, or you are ignorant and close minded. I myself believe that more answers can be found in nature than in an over-priced lab. I have not been sick (not even the sniffles) and have had no need to see a DR for over 25 years now other than to have a serious injury looked at and a couple job related drug screens. My secret is found in nature, and available to all.

      Now, maybe we can all digest the information presented to us in a more open minded way.

        It is amazing how radical rational thinking can make one sound astonishingly idiotic & arrogant. I’m a molecular biologist by the way, so most of what I’ll say in the next few lines is based on professional & personal experience.

        One, you are what you eat. You should know that your body renews itself organ by organ, 24/7. And since we are all made of chemicals (cells are nothing but an aggregation of molecules, so is DNA, the brain, …), the body needs to find a replacement for the chemicals which are not functional anymore. And those replacement chemicals come from what you ingest. Where do you think the basic building blocks for your liver, your pancreas, your lungs, … come from ? Most people believe that food is just there for energy and to avoid an empty stomach. WRONG !

        Two, your body has a defense mechanism, often called the immune system. It is in charge of getting rid of all the foreign & degenerate harmful bodies. A simple example would be a virus (the flu, HIV, …), or a cancerous cell. By the way, do you know what cancer is ? Cancer is simply a cell (or many cells) gone rogue. Inside each cell is a nucleus with all of your genetic material (DNA, RNA, …). When a cell is gone mad it starts duplicating itself frenetically with errors in the genetic code, and this causes it to present a different CMH on the cytoplasmic membrane which induces an immune response to get rid of that cancerous cell. CMH is a protein in the surface of the cell that helps the immune system cells identify which body is local and which is foreign.
        Everyday you get cancer, we all get cancer. But not everybody develops malignant tumors because the immune system is extremely efficient and powerful.

        Three, the question now is how is your diet directly linked to cancer ? Well, since your body picks its building blocks from the nutrients in your food, you can imagine from what the immune system cells are built. Yes, your food. Thus, if you eat garbage (meat, sugar, fat, fried food, …) the defense mechanism will be very weak. In addition to that, the immune system (which is not only cells, there’s also the liver, the bone marrow, the lymphatic system – which is way larger and important than the vascular system) will be so busy and overwhelmed by the toxins you feed your body it won’t be able to fight cancerous cells efficiently.

        Cancer is not a disease, it’s a symptom for a weakening immune system and the only way to boost your immune system is to provide your body with effective organic nutrients : vitamins, vegetable proteins, fibers, vegetable oils, … This is the reason why vegan or vegetarian diets work, this is also why Cannabis works (but this is another story). Most artificial drugs, and thus current cancer treatments, are toxic to the human body, yet for whatever unexplained reason people prefer them to plant based treatments which are proven more effective & way less damaging, if not at all.

        As my dad always said : The devil is in the details. From my experience, few are actually interested in understanding why and how things happen. This is probably dude to this state of intellectual laziness and pseudo rationality that the Americans were put in by the mainstream media and the government, of course all under Big Pharma’s sponsorship. Think about it, would you let go of billions of dollars of profit to save people who are going to die anyway ?!

          The book “Cancer-Free” (A guide to gentle, non-toxic healing) by Bill Henderson, backs up everything Andrew Erickssen says. After reading the book, I radically changed my diet, and now eat 50% raw food. I do not have cancer, and hope by eating this sort of food I never will. In the past, I worked as a RN. I’ve seen people being treated with chemotherapy, (which earns Big Pharma trillions of dollars annually.) It’s barbaric, and the success rate is 3% maximum. Go figure.

          My god, you’re so full of s**t. Molecular biologist, my a**. The chemical building blocks you extract from your food are the same whether it’s fried, baked, boiled or raw. SOME methods of cooking introduce extra free radicals, which are neither “building blocks” nor “toxins” – but all foods have some free radicals in them, *even vegan foods*. The body has NO defense against free radicals (no “preventive” defense against cancer AT ALL), its defense is to eliminate cells that have mutated due to damage. Cancer cells are cells that the body still recognizes as “self,” which is why the body does not eliminate them – having a stronger immune defense will do absolutely squat to protect anyone from cancer because the cells are seen as self. That’s the definition of cancer. Leukocytes and the rest will not attack cancer cells, because those cells look like a normal part of the body to the immune system.
          If you’re a molecular biologist, you should have paid more attention in class instead of inventing fairy stories about how a healthy immune system will protect you from cancer. It won’t.

            I thought free radicals only existed for a few millionths of a second as they are so reactive, certain food won’t contain them. If the body has bases in it, eg antioxidants these will mop up any that are formed but you can’t eat them in food, they only exist in 1000s of a second.

          you must be rather bad at your job then. cancer is not because your immune system is too busy fighting “toxins” (whatever that’s supposed to be, because last time i checked, white blood cells dont really process toxins) and once cancer has manifested and become malignant, it’s kind of hard to fix everything with diet, you know with all the cancer cells spreading throughout your body, and multiplying, while masquerading as your own cells. you need to kill those tumor cells fast, either by cutting it out or by killing it with drugs or radiation.

          sure, if you avoided eating so many mutagens in the first place, this could’ve been avoided but dont mistake preventative care with treatment.

          Reply
          • Andrew Erickssen

            If you’ve read & understood what I’ve written properly, you’d have got the part which I said that the immune system is not only cells and that there are many organs (liver, pancreas, …) involved. Of course the cells are not cleaning your body from toxins but those toxins become part of the cells environment at a certain point, which make it hard for them to function efficiently & kill cancerous cells. This is why chemo & drugs will never work. They only create an acidic/toxic environment which stimulate the growth and proliferation of cancerous cells.

            Another thing, a tumor is not cancer. If the tumor was cancer, getting rid of it (with drugs, radiation, or surgery) would solve the problem once and for all, and the cancer would never return. You should know that the tumor is another type of defense mechanism used by the body to protect the other organs, a tumor is a fence built around cancerous cells to stop them from spreading. And that is what most of you out there don’t know and are never told.

            Ask yourself this question : where does the tumor go when people get cured from cancer ?

            The answer is : it shrinks down and disappears.

            About prevention, you’re right. If people avoided all the horrendous chemicals out there (sugary drinks, fast food, GMO, …) there would have never been any sign of this. If you go back 150 years ago, there were very rare cases of cancer compared to nowadays statistics. People used to die due to a lack of hygiene, not slow intoxication & chronic malnutrition.
            But keep in mind that a healthy lifestyle keeps your body in balance, and that giving back balance to a degenerate body will certainly help get rid of all the responsible agents through that process.

    This article is misleading and scientifically ignorant. Chris had a third of his colon removed within 2 weeks of being diagnosed. The video mentions this, but the article does not. He got cured because he caught it early and got the surgery to remove it. That was the responsible thing he did.
    After he got the cancer removed, he was prescribed chemotherapy to as a preventative measure. If you have a tumor removed, there is a CHANCE your cancer will come back. A CHANCE. He made the woefully stupid decision to NOT get chemotherapy, which would have decreased that chance. The surgery was a success. His decision to not get chemo decreased his CHANCES of maintaining that success, but he lucked out and the cancer didn’t come back. The whole notion that his vegan diet “cured his cancer” is absurd.

    This article is willfully ignorant. Interestingly, it makes an attempt to legitimize itself by quoting some scientific papers about cancer. But if you actually take the time to look at the sources, they have NOTHING to do with the article.

    Source 1:
    The first paper involves using Dichloroacetete to slow the growth of tumors. DCA has been thoroughly tested and it it hasn’t been shown to have any real effectiveness in treating cancer. Furthermore, it’s actually quite dangerous to use. Quacks running black-market clinics often prescribe it to desperate cancer patients, but use without medical supervision can lead to liver damage. Alt-med proponents often think the DCA issue is some sort of conspiracy, because DCA is a non-patentable drug. They think pharmaceutical companies can’t make any money off of it because it’s not patentable, and so they ignore it and cover up evidence of it’s efficacy. This is another example of willfully ignorant reasoning. DCA IS in fact patentable for use as a drug in treating cancer (except it’s not actually effective). Much of the reasons cancer drugs are expensive is that they require complex low-yield organic synthesis… Don’t you think that pharmaceutical companies would jump on a cancer therapy involving a low-cost high-yield chemical like DCA?

    Sources 2/3:
    Involve anti-cancer properties of marijuana. The article likes to pretend that studies involving compounds derived from marijuana PROVE that it’s an effective cancer treatment. In reality, the studies quoted involve using isolated compounds to treat cells in vitro (in a lab setting, not in an actual living organism). These are basic studies used to determine if something is even plausible; they do not even come close to confirming the efficacy of those treatments.

    It’s one thing to seek alternative therapies in addition to proven cancer treatments (as long as you are smart enough to consult your doctor to make sure you aren’t doing anything to interfere with your actual treatments). It’s quite another to publicly discourage people from seeking real cancer treatment.

    There’s nothing wrong with having a healthy diet. There’s nothing wrong with choosing a vegetarian/vegan diet because you object to eating meat. But most alternative medicine stuff like this is total BS and doesn’t work. In fact, the whole notion of “alternative: medicine is ridiculous. Either it’s medicine or it’s not. Alternative medicine that works is just called “medicine.”

      Stage 3 cancer is pretty progressed, there are only 4 stages of colon cancer, so this guy did not catch it early. Also, to my knowledge, chemotherapy is not used as a preventative measure to make sure the cancer doesn’t come back. If so, why anyone would do that is completely beyond me. Why would you kill your immune system in the hopes that it will protect your body from anything, ever….your immune system is the only line of defense your body has! No, chemotherapy is used after surgery when removing the tumor did not remove all of the cancer. My Nana and my Grandfather died of cancer… so I know quite a bit about it. My Grandfather’s cancer was too far gone for them to do anything about it, 80% of his stomach was cancer and they could not do surgery. He died three months after he was diagnosed. My Nana was a different story, though. She went through three years of surgeries, chemo, radiation, you name it, she even moved to Atlanta so she could be treated by the doctors at Emory…and all of this did nothing for her but make her suffering worse. If I ever end up with cancer, there is no way I am having chemo. I will trust “alternative” medicine over a Dr. prescribed medicine any day. I just wish this info was out when my Nana had cancer…but that was a long time ago.

      Proven cancer treatments ?! Is chemo (DDT and toxic substances dating back to the 70s/80s) & radiation effective for you ? I hope you’re joking … Your claims are totally ridiculous. Obviously you’re in no position to judge any treatment, conventional or unconventional. And of course, here comes the doctors. Those who know better than everybody when it comes to health. Those who were only taught that Big Pharma’s toxic chemicals are the only solution to your ills. Those who believe to know everything there’s to know about the human body and who are never wrong even when their choice of treatment is ravaging your body and killing you slowly & painfully. Those who are surprised when you come back 6 months or a year later cancer free and can’t believe it is true but still can’t change their mind. Yes, those are the heroes. Do you have any idea what you’re talking about ?! I worked for 2 years in the pharma industry before I destroyed all of my research and got the F out of there. Guess what ? No lawsuit, nothing, they gave me a large paycheck to keep my mouth shut. Why ? My area of research was Cannabis as a cancer treatment, and my research results were conclusive : Cannabis doesn’t cure cancer, it restores the body’s balance and boosts the immune system. Other colleagues of mine were investigating the effects of vegetarian diets on the body defense mechanism. Guess what again ? Yes, it restores the body’s balance. Now, let me tell you something about Big Pharma. The pharma industry is about big bucks (patents & marketing), it doesn’t care about your health. But, believe me if I tell you that it is investing violently in investigating (R&D) any possible path leading to a drug or a patent. Marinol (which is Trans-Delta9-THC) was a failed attempt which proves pharma’s interest. I’ll spare you the political & historical aspect of all this.

    To say a vegan diet cured his cancer is a misleading and dangerous comment to make. I have been a vegetarian for 15 years and have diagnosed with cancer. I am a strong believer that what we consume has a direct effect on your health and that a change in what you consume will beneftit and cure some illnesses. However this patient had the cancer removed with surgery which makes this article very misleading and false! I do believe the change in his diet helped his recover and without it the surgery may not have been 100% successful. I think it is important to bring situations and success stories to people’s attention, however how you do this is very important.

      Ok, I just posted a reply (top) in which I didn’t want to discuss this but I think I will now.

      Cannabis is a cure. Here’s why :

      Your body contains a numerous amount of receptors to multiple chemical compounds found in the plant. Mainly Cannabinoids (CBD). You probably have heard about the THC (Delta9-TetraHydroCannabinol) which is causing the well known high effect, the temporary memory loss, the anxiety or anxiolytic effect (depends on people), …
      Amazingly the some CBD receptors help the immune system identify cancerous cells and others trigger an apoptotic reaction in the cancerous cells.

      Now, as for being a vegetarian, there are many aspects of vegetarianism. There are those who have a GMO/non-organic plant based diet, others who have GMO-free/organic plant based diet, and others in between. It is conspicuous that the first will definitely cause degenerative diseases and symptoms of body malfunction. As for the last one, the probability is a bit hard to determine. But most of those who live in cities are in between, and you know why.

    Curing the cancer with diet always sounds awesome. But I heard that initial stage of cancer can be removed with diet and change in life style and later it can be removed by therapies like chemo and some other methods. Can you please share about what exactly vegan diet means and how many days it will take to remove cancer. While following vegan diet we need to take any alternative medicine for cancer, please let me know all these information.

  13. Thanks for this example I have been on a 100% raw vegan diet for over 45 years now and it works fine even without the high end expensive nutriceuticals and exotic herbs and marketed in the hebarl world.. Simply the vegan diet and an adequate lifestyle.

    I wasn’t let go, I resigned. For your information, I hold a PhD in Molecular Biology & a PhD in Computer Science (High Performance Computing for Bioinformatics). If you want to discuss technical matters I’m open, but you’re going to have to come up with something strong.

  16. Thank you for this post. I wish more people would at least integrate fresh foods into their daily diet when receiving such kind of news. And mind & soul work. So many do not and just count on chemo to work.. and then it doesn’t and they are a statistic. How sad.

    a doctor telling you there are no alternative treatments to killing cancer and then saying if you don’t do chemo you are crazy, should be fired and jailed. that doctor went against ‘first do no harm’. doctors, bleh! shameful!

    • And a blogger with no medical training telling people that they don’t need chemotherapy for colon cancer should be hailed as a hero!

        Tell me indie. What credentials do you have? Ever seen what chemo does to the immune system? Your a good example of how blinded we all have become as a nation. Look up yourself how chemo causes cancer. Then tell me how a suppressed immune system from chemo is helpful. These people including friends and family of mine in the past took the chemo way. And died. And some decided to change diets and do a holistic approach. There still hear and doing great. Where the chemo ones are either dead or now with other complications. Get off of this authors back. He has facts as do a lot of us. Your just passing judgement and honestly, unless you forgot we’re human. Eating right should be basic math and makes complete sense. Unlike doctors reading this info is free and it’s up to the individual to research there situations and blood types and correct diets and other methods.

          If you child had leukemia in the 60s/70s the out come was death more often than not. Now the outcome is life more often than not. They use chemo – not vegan diets or grapeseed extract

          Reply
          • and what are the statistics on the percentage of these living young people are, 10 years down the road, stricken with a secondary cancer that has been caused by the chemotherapy that “cured” their leukemia?

          If Indie disagrees with you MickG, how does that make him ‘blind’? Aren’t you also exhibiting a type of blindness, or what could more accurately described as confirmation bias? What if I said all my friends who had Cancer, decided against Chemo and went Vegan had died, whilst those who went through Chemo had lived, would I then be right to think you were blind, misled and non-credible? As for facts, this discussion is all about facts, which lead to judgements and challenge to established consensus. The ‘fact’ the individual above survived stage 3 colon cancer and attributes this to a dietary choice does not necessarily mean it was this diet that cured his cancer. Does the term ‘spontaneous remission’ mean anything to you?

    Great article! I love that you shared so many links with the research and info that people need to get started healing themselves! Sharing it with a couple friends who have cancer. Diet is so much more important than most people realize. Andrew Erickssen’s comment was spot on!

      That’s how they usually get you…by posting many links. They posted a couple of links from the same source that no one took time to read…and then cited their own website a couple of times. Diet is important but it will not help you when your best friend is dying of leukimia or when your nephew has metastasized cancer in kidneys, lungs, and liver.
      Try not to believe everything you read on blog-type sites. Read scholarly articles from nonbiased sources. Science has come a great way and we now have information at our fingertips. We’re doing ourself a disservice by believing everything written by a blogger.

    For all the commenters. Did we have an increase of cancer because of monkeyviruses in poliovaccins? What about research to create deadly cancerviruses? Why? Why ban the research done on rats eating GMO food and banning the scientist? Why is there so littly money, hardly any for research in alternative treatments of cancer? Also check out the placebo/nosebo effect. And apparently there are people who are cured either by cannabisoil or raw cannabis juice. Furthermore it is a question of having the right nutrients in a diet. As the earth is depleted, which food still has? GMO corn has been found to even contain less, hardly any nutrients as compared to conventional corn. There have been scientists, among them Ehrlich, writing about the need for worldpopulationreduction and how to do it. The media constantly enforces the need for worldpopulationreduction. Those scientist who say it is unnecessary are not heard in the public domain. Why? Many vegans and vegetarians lack Essential nutrients in their diets and get sick. Listen to the video and hear him say he took all herbs, vitamins and iv vitamin C etc. And who can afford 8 glasses of organice fresh vegetable juice? Research is all around proving many cancerpatients die from the treatment. Chemo is used as an aftertreatment for most patients overhere in the Netherlands. My sister got sick of it, asked me to check it out and then stopped. All her friends who had cancer and continued the chemo died within a short period. She managed to hang on for a long time, with mostly herbs and vitamins. Regular research has been done in the use of curcumin and proven it works. Regular research proved individual different targeting for each tumor as they all have different DNA and react differentlly,, Netherlands. Regular research proved direct targeting with chemo of the cancercells. Now patients in the US cannot get treatment on medicare, cancerdrugs costing $ 120,000 per month and private clinics being unable to afford that. I know of a man getting 8000 euro;s per month worth of treatment just to prolong his life a little, regular treatment ended, the man terminal. Seems a lot of money to me, with healthinsurances being unable to keep up with the rising healthcosts. Thus many elderly, before residing in homes for years, are now being returned home, saying their condition is not bad enough to qualify for care.

    • Gertie, nice post, but this has nothing to do with this guys’ claims. There is no evidence that this guy had stage 3 cancer, was treated for it, nor cured from it. Typical dishonest shuckster trying to use fear, ignorance, and religion to promote his brand of pseudoscience.

    • Not only is most cancer curable, but also preventable. Alas, cancer is also very profitable for the powers that be. I never contribute to cancer research because why would I give money to pharmaceutical companies who have no intention of finding a cure. Plus, you can prevent cancer by adopting a whole foods, plant based diet (meaning no animal products), but then what would they do with all those drugs they keep pushing on us. I am a vegan and I haven’t had as much as the sniffles in 3 years. I eat healthy whole greens (organic whenever possible) and live a healthy lifestyle – I will probably live past 100. Look at Asian countries, they live very active lives well into their 90’s because of their diet. A good book for reference is “The China Study” by Dr. T. Colin Campbell who started out his research to prove that animal protein would help prevent cancer, what he found out was the exact opposite.

      Max Gerson never submitted any of his data for peer review, it has never been replicated despite attempts by RCT’s, carried out by charities with no funding or other conflict of interests with big pharma. The NHS would love for people to be able to cure cancer through nutrition, it would save a lot of money, unfortunately there is no evidence yet that it can.

        I’m am not sure if this applies to what you are mentioning completely, but I do know that most studies done where they try and replicate curing cancer through nutrition are inherently flawed because they use supplements. Supplements are not the same thing as what is found in food. If you get vitamin A in kale, but take a Vitamin A supplement, regardless of their chemical make up visually being the same, they are two VERY different things. This is being shown through the deep study of supplements that is revealing the importance of the natural combinations and chemicals found in plants that tell the body what it is vs the body being confused after taking a supplement. Generally it discards most of the nutrient in supplement form.

We are not telling anyone what to do but instead encouraging the research of other options. This is a great thing considering the results of chemo and the availability of better treatments.
