great thread and I hope it continues. I have a friend who has "survived" colon cancer for six years by having 5 surgeries and 4 rounds of chemo. Her high deductible HSA gets maxed out usually by the end of January every year. To her, modern medicine is a miracle. It's astonishing to me the amount of suffering a person will endure without even considering changing their diet or lifestyle. two years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and handed a bottle of metformin and told that we could start insulin in a few months if that didn't help. i went to the library and online and had "reversed" the condition by my 6 month follow up. I've since lost almost 100 lbs.. hm. anyway, i'd just like to say, with the right attitude and perseverance many of these conditions can be ameliorated or cured, and if they don't help one would not have to die wondering if they'd done all they could. To my friend, a "gut healing protocol" sounds like silly new age hokum. my 2 cents.

also, back to the parasite discussion, there is a terrific book called An Epidemic of Absence by Moises Velasquez-Manoff which addresses the "hygiene hypothesis" of modern illness. Fodder for thought at least and an excellent read even for non-science-y types

I listened to an interview with an author who has studied those who beat cancer with alternative methods:

I subscribe to the People's Pharmacy podcast but sometimes I get behind in listening to them. This podcast was broadcast on July 26, 2014. It's an interview with Kelly Turner, who wrote a book about the people who have miraculous recoveries from what is supposed to be terminal cancer. Some people do a toxinectomy, some start meditating, some use herbs, Chinese or otherwise. Many do several things to improve their health and their immune system so as to fight the cancer.

The author has a website: http://www.radicalremission.com The blog has story after story of people who either tried conventional medicine first, then alternative, or who tried alternative treatments first and they worked. Interesting.

I've already listened to it, I'm subscribed via iTunes so I've downloaded the mp3. It's just that they only make the mp3 available for a limited amount of time, and then they want you to buy it (for $2.99, not terrible). I'm thinking about people who come across this link a year from now.

I read as much as I could stomach of one of Hulda's cancer books, this one published under the name Clark.  It took a basic technology (the radio) with complicated science that scares most people, and applied it to a frightening problem that is extremely complicated (cancer), and reported that the whole problem was solved.  Its interpretation of that process was highly suspect for two or three reasons.

For example, she claims that each species emits its own characteristic frequency of radio wave.

You could say that she had some unique combination of equipment and skill that allowed her to obtain results that no one else could, but she could share this technology if it existed, and I am entirely convinced that she has no unique expertise.  A friend and former colleague of mine was on a team that built the world's least-noisy radio reciever to search for dark matter.  A significant part of the experiment was identifying and tuning out all explainable signals: cell phones, AM and FM and shortwave broadcasting, sattelite transmissions, the 60 hz signal from the US power grid, etc.  There was nothing much left. If Hulda's theory were correct, there would have been a signal from the operator whenever he entered the room, and another from each strain of lactobacilli and e. coli on his skin and in his gut; the lactobacilli in his fingerprints would keep emitting after he left the room.  There would have been anomalous signals from dust mites, and from worms burrowing in the soil overhead.  No such signals were observed.  They would have been published as evidence of dark matter, of course...but I digress.

An example of internally inconsistent logic: The book claims that pulses of radio waves applied to the body using electrodes kill the parasites responsible (in her opinion) for cancer.  Unfortunately, says she, the parasites have parasites of their own, which burrow out of the dead bodies after treatment: the treatment doesn't penetrate through the outer parasites, and so to get three or four layers down, you need repeated treatments at particular intervals. She is right to notice that living things are electrically conductive, and this conductivity can shield the contents of a living thing from some sorts of electromagnetic radiation, but how does she imagine waves reach inside of a person, if they can't reach inside of a notional fluke?

The stuff on herbs was not the focus of the edition I read.  The book I saw centered on radio waves that cannot penetrate a living thing, zapping histology-proof parasites within a living thing.



Joel, I had vaguely heard of this book once before but I had no idea what it was about nor who this person was.

I found what you said to be very interesting, she does sound like a quack in some of the things she said but others have me thinking... like how she would not have other independent researchers test out her work. I have a theory why that is.

She was simply taking the work of Royal Rife (an early 20th century scientist) and calling it her own while embellishing on some things (like cancer being from parasites.) Perhaps others in the alternative cancer treatment world would had been able to call her out for her plagiarism of Rife. Maybe she didn’t even create her own machine and just bought one to use on patients?

A bit on Rife: he is said to have invented a ‘cancer curing machine’ that sounds similar to what you described. People of his time were skeptical because he was a physicist and not a medical professional.
I found out about him from a physicist friend of mine who sent me this article: http://www.royal-rife.com/

I talked to my friend about it and he said, scientifically, it definitely is sound. It’s a WEIRD idea, taking a jump out from everything we know medically and giving physics/frequencies the possibility to ‘cure cancer’. An idea most people would not have even fathomed! (Rife successfully cured certain cancers but not all types)

If you read the article I linked, it gives some explanations for why we as a society do not use this technology. Rife was speaking with the medical community but of course the powers that be saw how his device would put them out of the cancer industry... one we know to be a huge profit monster, especially now. They started to attack him, He fled the country, and his partner that maintained a practice curing people in America was killed.

Needless to say, it’s not profitable to the same scale as modern chemo. At least, not to the medical world. It would had been SUPER profitable for Rife if he did not find himself on the wrong side of the bureaucracy.

Now, you can take this with a grain of salt but I trust my friend knows his stuff and if he says it’s logically sound I’m game for at least trying it out if I got cancer (well, one of the cancers the machine can treat)
You can buy a Rife machine from some odd websites here and there online. They look odd, but I’m sure so did the lightbulb when it was first discovered.
(I have never used one nor do I know anyone who has successfully used one)

That's funny this thread started 10 years back was refering to parasites as an hypothetical cause for cancer, and seeing all the current craze about an antiparasitic drug (Fenbendazole) which work wonder against all kind of cancers and tumors.
You guys were right about the parasite route.
Ivermectine, which is also a cheap antiparasitic drug, has strong effect to kill cancerous cells.
Parasites are also suspected to cause many other serious deseases, so I guess antiparasitic drugs should be the first drug one try when they are hit with this kind of deseases

I'm bookmarking and planning to read this whole thread, as cancer is the #2 killer, but this is my contribution (Actually, Edward G. Griffin's): World Without Cancer:  

That documentary adaptation of the book is excellent for those short of time, but find the book if you can to learn more, especially the politics behind the promotion of cancer, which takes up over half of the book.
