Is Chemotherapy really effective?

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 1, 2008

“Two to 4% of cancers respond to chemotherapy… .The bottom line is
for a few kinds of cancer chemo is a life extending
procedure— Hodgkin’s disease, Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL),
Testicular cancer, and Choriocarcinoma. “—-Ralph Moss, Ph.D. 1995
Author of Questioning Chemotherapy.

“NCI now actually anticipates further increases, and not decreases, in
cancer mortality rates, from 171/100,000 in 1984 to 175/100,000 by the
year 2000!”–Samuel Epstein.

“A study of over 10,000 patients shows clearly that chemo’s
supposedly strong track record with Hodgkin’s disease (lymphoma) is
actually a lie. Patients who underwent chemo were 14 times more likely
to develop leukemia and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the
bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo
chemotherapy (NCI Journal 87:10).”-John Diamond

Children who are successfully treated for Hodgkin’s disease are 18 times
more likely later to develop secondary malignant tumours. Girls face a
35 per cent chance of developing breast cancer by the time they are
40—-which is 75 times greater than the average. The risk of leukemia
increased markedly four years after the ending of successful treatment,
and reached a plateau after 14 years, but the risk of developing solid
tumours remained high and approached 30 per cent at 30 years (New Eng J
Med, March 21, 1996)

“Success of most chemotherapy is appalling…There is no scientific
evidence for its ability to extend in any appreciable way the lives of
patients suffering from the most common organic cancer…chemotherapy
for malignancies too advanced for surgery which accounts for 80% of all
cancers is a scientific wasteland.”- –Dr Ulrich Abel. 1990

The New England Journal of Medicine Reports- War on Cancer Is a Failure:
Despite $30 billion spent on research and treatments since 1970, cancer
remains “undefeated, ” with a death rate not lower but 6% higher in 1997
than 1970, stated John C. Bailar III, M.D., Ph.D., and Heather L.
Gornik, M.H.S., both of the Department of Health Studies at the
University of Chicago in Illinois. “The war against cancer is far from
over,” stated Dr. Bailar. “The effect of new treatments for cancer on
mortality has been largely disappointing. ”

“My studies have proved conclusively that untreated cancer victims live
up to four times longer than treated individuals. If one has cancer and
opts to do nothing at all, he will live longer and feel better than if
he undergoes radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, other than when used in
immediate life-threatening situations.” —Prof Jones. (1956 Transactions
of the N.Y. Academy of Medical Sciences, vol 6. There is a fifty page
article by Hardin Jones of National Cancer Institute of Bethesda,
Maryland. He surveyed global cancer of all types and compared the
untreated and the treated, to conclude that the untreated outlives the
treated, both in terms of quality and in terms of quantity. Secondly he
said, “Cancer does not cure”. Third he said “There is a physiological
mechanism which finishes off an individual”. )

“With some cancers, notably liver, lung, pancreas, bone and advanced
breast, our 5 year survival from traditional therapy alone is virtually
the same as it was 30 years ago.”—P Quillin, Ph.D.

Studies show that women taking tamoxifen after surviving breast cancer
then have a high propensity to develop endometrial cancer. The NCI and
Zeneca Pharmaceuticals, which makes the drug, aggressively lobbied State
of California regulators to keep them from adding tamoxifen to their
list of carcinogens. Zeneca is one of the sponsors of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month.

“Most cancer patients in this country die of
chemotherapy… Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung
cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade. Yet doctors
still use chemotherapy for these tumours…Women with breast cancer
are likely to die faster with chemo than without it.”-Alan Levin, M.D.

One Response to “Is Chemotherapy really effective?”

  1. Limitations of Screening Mammography

    An eminent radiologist, Leonard Berlin MD says we have failed to disclose the limitations of screening mammography, namely that mammography will miss 30-70% of breast cancers, and leads to over diagnosis and over treatment.

    Dr. Berlin says disclosures of these limitations should be mandated, just like the cigarette and drug warnings that appear on their ads.

    Dr. Berlin also points out that 57% of the American women believe that mammograms prevent breast cancer, a misleading message from Breast Awareness Month.

    Mammograms are designed to detect cancer, not prevent it. Thinking that a mammogram can prevent breast cancer is like thinking that checking your house annually for broken windows prevents robberies.
