What the Cluck?

We're happy to be borrowing the title for this blog post from Barbara Brenner of Breast Cancer Action (BCA). She was referring to the unfathomable partnership between KFC and the Susan G. Komen Foundation this past spring called "Buckets for the Cure," whereby money was raised to "spread breast cancer awareness and educational messaging." Seriously?

In order to "fight" cancer, we should buy buckets of fried, hormone- and antibiotic-ridden chickens, often inhumanely-raised, and then eat it? What could possibly be the "educational" message in this? Even though there's much resistance and debate as to the relationship between diet and health, we think most people will agree that this kind of bottom-of-the-food-chain fast food is not good for our bodies, and least of all when one has cancer. 

Barbara Brenner rightly calls this partnership an example of the "pinkwashing" that is running rampant right now. This occurs "when a company purports to care about breast cancer by promoting a pink-ribboned product, but manufactures products that are linked to the disease." (Including, often times, the very product with the pink ribbon on it!) "Make no mistake," Brenner adds, "every pink bucket purchase will do more to benefit KFC's bottom line than it will to cure breast cancer."

For more information on this topic, check out this great two-part article entitled "Cluck for the Cure," which includes a description of a probable human carcinogen in this "cancer-fighting" food:

And remember, everything you put on or in or near your body is either helping your body, or it's helping cancer. We say "Cluck that!" to this partnership, and others like it!

Did You Hear? They Cured Cancer

Experts will tell you there is no cure for advanced cancer. True, there is no one cure. There are dozens of cures. Hundreds, even. One of the most mystifying aspects of conventional medicine is the manner in which most of its practitioners are unwilling to acknowledge the most obvious of realities. Namely, that people cure advanced cancer all the time.

What conventional cancer docs mean, of course, is that they don't know how to cure advanced cancers. And this isn't at all surprising, given the limited tools they have at their disposal, and their very limited knowledge of immune function, nutritional science, and all the other healing wisdom that goes into ridding the body of cancer smartly and safely.

Or, they mean to say that there isn't a one-size-fits-all cure, as required by their conventional laboratory science. But we're not lab rats, nor is cancer a single disease in need of a single cure. Breast cancer, for example, is more like 100 different diseases in terms of all the variations it can have. So the narrow-minded laboratory mindset is by nature inappropriate for cancer in the real world, in real bodies. Indeed, the reason the past 30 years of massive funding of conventional cancer research have been such a disappointment is for this very reason—all of that energy is spent looking for a general solution to a problem that is specific in every case. It will never work.  

So what conventional doctors mean to say is that their tools and methods—their treatments and the science behind them—cannot cure most advanced cancers. But that's not what they say, really. They say it can't be cured, period. And that's just plain dishonest. And poor sportsmanship, too. Shame on them for convincing patients that their narrow-minded expertise represents all there is to be known about healing cancer. Our advice is simply this—don't believe it. Numbers lie, trust the eye, as the saying goes. There is so much good news about cancer, and it doesn't have anything to do with toxic, largely ineffective treatments. It has to do with getting well again, and it's time we started acknowledging it more, and embracing it more. 

And to let your eyes behold the myriad stories of healing cancer, we wanted to share some resources:

The Incurables

Veria.com series documenting a host of illnesses, including many cancers, healed via nutritional and herbal science, along with lots of other traditional/natural medicine approaches.

Naturalnews.tv (cancer category)

This site shows one video after another documenting the healing wisdom of the body, applied to cancer (mostly advanced cases). 

Eventually, we'll add a section to our web site with stories from patients that cured their incurable cancers. In the meantime, feel free to drop us an email at authors@youdidwhatbook.com. We'd love to hear from you.

The Cancer Canary

One of the points we emphasize in our book is that the cancer canary in the coal mine has died, but we mostly haven't noticed. The incidence of cancer has skyrocketed for many decades running now, and shows no sign of letting up any time soon. The conventional medical establishment's response has been an unfortunate combination of ignoring the massive amount of evidence about environmental and lifestyle contributors to cancer, along with an unwarranted obsession with genetic influences, which explain very little about why so many people are getting, and will get, cancer. 

This excellent Huffington Post article by Karl Grossman does an unusually good job of highlighting the environmental causes of cancer. And we especially like the fact that he includes diet in the list of environmental contributors. As we like to say, everything you're putting on or in your body is either helping your body to thrive, or it's helping cancer to grow. Your choice!

Grossman also does a nice job of discussing the history and politics of cancer in the U.S., and how special interests have worked hard to entrench a system that isn't very good at all in treating cancer, and one that essentially denies the now-fairly-obvious causes of cancer. This kind of knowledge is power to us all, but especially to those with cancer. Information like this can help you to embrace a whole host of healing efforts based upon detoxifying your life, and you can start now

Make Peace With Cancer

It's time to end the war on cancer. The notion of cancer as some foreign invader forms the very foundation of our problems in dealing with it. It gives rise to the practice of waging “war” against it, and justifies the use of the weapons of mass destruction that are conventional treatments. And worst of all, it blinds us to the fact that it’s a part of us, a product of our bodies and our biologies and our environments. A natural process, even. Thus, rather than addressing the underlying imbalances that cause our cancers, with the body and its amazing immune system as the most powerful tools at our disposal, we instead sacrifice our bodies as collateral damage in a cancer jihad.

It's time to declare peace on our cancers. Cancer can go away peacefully, if you know how to ask it to do so. You can get well again, and you don't have to get sicker first (via conventional treatments) in order to do so. There is so much healing wisdom available to do so. This blog is where we'll be sharing all of the wisdom that we discovered during our cancer journey following Hollie's breast cancer diagnosis in 2002, and during the happy and healthy years since then.

Welcome to the revolution. Welcome to the future of cancer treatment.
