The Real Cons of Cancer Cures

(HSI) – At the end of last week, the FDA made a big announcement about how it’s cracking down on the “cruel deception” of bogus cancer treatment claims.

Was it referring to Pfizer, which insists that its kidney cancer drug can help stop cancer cells from multiplying (implying that it will stop cancer in its tracks)? Or the new treatment for lung cancer that promises patients “a chance to live longer”?

Nope, that wasn’t it. Even though when it comes to those two drugs, there is no evidence that the meds will save lives… or even improve quality of life for cancer patients.

Instead, the FDA was sounding the alarm to make sure that no natural substance will ever be allowed to compete with Big Pharma — even if it does have years of safe and effective use backing it.

Suppressing the truth

Why did a 69-year-old man with kidney cancer, known only as “Patient #11561004,” pass away while part of a clinical trial?
What made him finally succumb — after years of battling the advanced-stage cancer — wasn’t his disease, but gastrointestinal bleeding caused by the experimental cancer drug he volunteered to take for the study.

It took less than four months for this particular med to take him down.

That, however, didn’t stop the FDA from approving the drug, called Inlyta, whose price tag is a hefty $10,000 a month.

Another med, Opdivo, will run lung cancer patients $14,000 a month — and that one has only been found to increase life expectancy, on average, by 90 days.

That’s, of course, if the extremely harsh side effects that can hit almost every part of the body including the brain, kidneys, liver, thyroid, pancreas, skin and intestines don’t kill them first.

But that’s really not a surprise to experts. In fact, a study published in JAMA two years ago found that most cancer meds approved by the FDA over the prior five years were given the go-ahead with no proof (nor even a hint of proof) that they work.

You’d think that kind of study would call for a second look, yet the FDA seems to be just fine and dandy with however Big Pharma spins its drugs.

What the agency is gunning for, according to its latest announcement, are companies selling herbs, vitamins and other natural ingredients with proven track records!

For example, one of more than a dozen FDA warning letters went out to a company that sells colloidal silver. Apparently, this company dared to tell patients how this substance has been used as a treatment for many illnesses and infections.

Never mind the fact that’s 100 percent true! Colloidal silver has been found to be one of the most powerful natural antibiotics ever — one with years of research and data to back up its effectiveness.

The agency issued 13 more letters addressed to companies marketing bona fide natural remedies such as garlic tablets, B vitamins, Ginseng, resveratrol and many other well-respected and curative natural substances.

But the most absurd letter of all had to be the one sent to a company that sells vitamin C.

Apparently, it made statements on its website that told about the power of vitamin C to treat and protect against a variety of illnesses — including cancer.

But that’s also 100 percent true!

Decades ago, the late Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling told how vitamin C could be used to fight the common cold — something that’s widely accepted even by the mainstream today.

But what Dr. Pauling also discovered was that vitamin C could also be used to beat cancer — an idea that has been raising the hackles of Big Pharma from the get-go.

As eAlert readers have been hearing for years, high-dose, intravenous vitamin C has seen remarkable success in treating cancer (and other illnesses, too) — and with little to no side effects.

In fact, right now, the University of Iowa’s Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center is using IVC to treat two deadly cancers of the brain and lung.

And there’s been no record of a patient dying from their IVC treatments. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for those Big Pharma “cures” that are being used to experiment on human cancer patients who are desperate for anything that might work.

The battle to suppress such traditional remedies will no doubt continue, just as the FDA will continue to allow obscenely-priced meds on the market with no proof whatsoever that they can help cancer patients live better and longer lives… and, in fact, may do just the opposite.

So, when it comes to cruel (and dangerous) deceptions, Big Pharma takes the prize… hands down.

But you’ll never hear that from the FDA, which is busy as can be giving the green APPROVED stamp to more and more expensive, useless and dangerous pharmaceuticals to treat cancer…while chasing down vitamins, minerals and herbs!
