Info from the net

Johns Hopkins  Update 
This  is an extremely good article.
Everyone  should read it.


Cancer  Update from Johns  Hopkins:

1. Every  person has cancer cells in the body. These  cancer 
cells do not show  up in the standard tests until they  have
multiplied to a few billion. When  doctors tell cancer patients
that there are  no more cancer cells in their bodies  after 
treatment, it just  means the tests are unable to detect  the
cancer cells because they have not  reached the detectable

2. Cancer  cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in  a 
person's  lifetime.

3. When  the person's immune  system is strong the  cancer 
cells will be  destroyed and prevented from multiplying  and
forming tumors.

4. When a person  has cancer it indicates the person  has
nutritional deficiencies. These  could be due to genetic,
but also  to environmental, food and  lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the  multiple nutritional  deficiencies, changing
 to  eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5  times/day
and by including supplements will  strengthen the immune system.

6.  Chemotherapy involves  poisoning the  rapidly-growing
cancer cells and also  destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells
in the  bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc., and  can 
cause organ damage,  like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7.  Radiation while destroying cancer  cells also burns,  scars 
and damages healthy  cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial  treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will  often
reduce tumor size.
However prolonged  use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result  in more tumor destruction.

9. When the  body has too much toxic burden  from
chemotherapy and radiation the immune  system is either
compromised or destroyed,  hence the person can succumb
to various kinds  of infections and complications.

10.  Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer  cells to
mutate and become resistant and  difficult to destroy.
Surgery can also cause  cancer cells to spread to other  sites.

11. An effective way to battle  cancer is to starve the cancer
cells by not  feeding it with the foods it needs to  multiply. 


a.  Sugar substitutes  like 
NutraSweet,  Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made
with  Aspartame and it is harmful
. A  better natural substitute
would be Manuka  honey or molasses, but only in very  small
Table  salt has  a chemical added to make it white in
color  Better alternative is Bragg's aminos  or sea  salt.

b. Milk causes  the body to produce mucus, especially in  the
gastro-intestinal  tract. Cancer feeds on  mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting  with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being  starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an  acid  environment. 
A  meat-based
 is  acidic and it is  best to eat fish, and a little other  meat,
like chicken. Meat also contains  livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and  parasites, which are all harmful, especially to  people with cancer.

d. A diet made  of 80% fresh  vegetables and juice, whole
grains, seeds,  nuts and a little fruits help put the body  into
an alkaline  environment. About 20% can be from  cooked
food including beans. Fresh vegetable  juices provide live
enzymes that are easily  absorbed and reach down to
cellular levels  within 15 minutes to nourish and  enhance
growth of healthy cells. To obtain  live enzymes for building
healthy cells try  and drink fresh vegetable juice  (most
vegetables including bean sprouts) and  eat some raw
vegetables 2 or 3 times a  day. Enzymes are  destroyed at
temperatures  of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)..

e.  Avoid coffee, tea, and  chocolate, which have  high
Green  tea is  a better alternative and has cancer
fighting  properties. Water-best to drink purified water,  or
filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy  metals in tap
water. Distilled water is  acidic, avoid  it. 

12. Meat  protein is difficult to  digest and requires a lot of
digestive  enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in  the
intestines becomes putrefied and leads to  more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls  have a tough protein covering. By
refraining  from or eating less meat it frees more  enzymes
to attack the protein walls of cancer  cells and allows the
body's killer cells to  destroy the cancer  cells.

14. Some  supplements build up the  immune system
(IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac,  anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals,
EFAs etc.)  to enable the bodies own killer cells to  destroy
cancer  cells.. Other  supplements like vitamin E  are known
to cause apoptosis, or programmed  cell death, the body's
normal method of  disposing of damaged, unwanted, or
unneeded  cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of  the mind,  body, and  spirit.

A proactive and positive  spirit will help the cancer warrior
be a  survivor. Anger,  un-forgiveness and  bitterness put
the body  into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn  to
have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn  to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells  cannot thrive in an  oxygenated
environment. Exercising  daily, and deep  breathing help to
get  more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen  therapy is another means employed to destroy  cancer  cells.

No  plastic containers in  micro. 

No  water bottles in  freezer. 

No  plastic wrap in  microwave.. 

Johns  Hopkins has recently sent this out in its  newsletters. This information is being  circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as  well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially  breast cancer. Dioxins are  highly poisonous to the  cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic  bottles with water in them as this releases  dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward  Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle  Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this  health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how  bad they are for us. He said that we should not  be heating our food in the microwave using  plastic containers. This especially applies to  foods that contain fat. He said that the  combination of fat, high heat, and plastics  releases dioxin into the food and ultimately  into the cells of the body. Instead, he  recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware,  Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.  You get the same results, only without the  dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant  ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from  the container and heated in something else.  Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in  the paper. It's just safer to use tempered  glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a  while ago some of the fast food restaurants  moved away from the foam containers to paper The  dioxin problem is one of the  reasons.

Please  share this with your whole email  list......................... 
Also,  he pointed out that plastic  wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous  when placed over foods to be cooked in the  microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat  causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of  the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover  food with a paper towel instead.
This is an  article that should be sent to anyone important  in your  life...ncer
