Cancer Out Of the Box
I write an occasional “Letter to the Editor” of a local newspaper based here in our Eden by the Sea.
Dear Editor …
The problem with cancer research is too many experts thinking inside the box.
Media scholar Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) commented, “The reason a phone-in 24-hour television station isn’t dedicated entirely to cancer is that some sixteen-year-old kid will come up with the cure.”
Youth has clearly revolutionized the internet and technology industries.
Incidentally, stem cell co-discoverer Dr. Ernest McCulloch (1926-2011) indicated that McLuhan’s “tetrad approach [McLuhan’s Four Laws of Media] works 100% in the case of cancer.”
Many legitimate cancer innovators have been spurned as quacks.
Emanuel Revici, M.D. (1896-1997), the “Einstein of Medicine,” is one such man.
40,000 of 50,000 copies of his 776-page textbook were burned — instead of remaindered — by his publisher.
Fortunately, the entire textbook, Research In Physiopathology As Basis Of Guided Chemotherapy With Special Application To Cancer, 1961, is available to view for free in cyberspace.
Dr. Revici ran Trafalgar Hospital (formerly Beth Israel) from 1954 to 1978, originally coming to the U.S. with three special visas provided by Summer Welles (when he was Undersecretary of State).
Mainstream M.D. Lloyd J. Old (1933-2011), “one of the founders and standard-bearers of the field of cancer immunology” (according to Wikipedia) was busy getting several of these blackballed cancer innovators “off the Quack List” before his untimely death.
Dr. Old managed to get oncologist William Coley, M.D. (1862-1936) off that list.
A diluted version of Coley’s mixed bacterial vaccine is coming into use again.
Dr. Old was also in the process of getting gynecologist John Beard (1854-1924) off the list.
Dr. Old considered himself a “neo-Beardian” (according to an article in Scientific American).
Drs. William Kelley (1925-2005) and Nicolas Gonzales (1947-2015) claimed they followed Dr. Beard’s protocol, but they “missed the memo” on some essential points.
Dr. Beard’s Unitarian Trophoblastic Theory was downgraded into the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer, ignoring cancer’s “evil twin” traits.
Dr. Old was also communicating with another cancer innovator — oncologist Zheng Cui, M.D., of Wake Forest University.
Dr. Cui is still very much alive, involved in human research relating to his original discovery of an “extraordinarily cancer resistant mouse,”
Let’s not forget Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, M.D. (1883-1970), whose lactic acid “Warburg Effect” has been misinterpreted by both mainstream medicine and its alternative counterpart.
Holistic therapists claim sugar feeds cancer. It doesn’t, and it can even “kill” cancer.
Glucose is not cancer’s favorite food. It’s the amino acid glutamine, which is being sold in health food stores as a cancer remedy (or at minimum an anticarcinogen).
Excess sugar comes with it’s own syndromes (diabetes isn’t one of them), but that’s another story for another day.
The Warburg Effect was confined to the mitochondria, so Dr. William F. Koch, M.D. (1885-1967) expanded the therapy, and was indicted three times because of it (with a hung jury every time).
Ultimately, he escaped to Brazil to avoid further FDA persecution.
One last Yes No Maybe opinion …
Flaxseed oil and fish oil (including cod liver oil) accelerate aging and encourage cancer.
Lipofuscin and ceroid “age” pigments can’t be created without either polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) or highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs).
Guido Majno, M.D., & Isabelle Joris, Ph.D. (Cells, Tissue, and Disease: Principles of General Pathology, Second Edition, 2004) wrote …
“A good way to understand lipofuscin is to compare it with linoleum. Linoleum, as the name implies, is obtained from linseed oil [flaxseed oil]. The British citizen who invented it around 1860 discovered that if linseed oil is heated long enough in the presence of oxygen, it becomes darker and darker, less and less oily, and eventually turns into a solid. In more general terms, if long-chain fatty acids are progressively oxidized, they gradually lose the typical properties of lipids. As their color slowly shifts from white to yellow to brown, they become less and less soluble in fat solvents, more and more cross-linked, and eventually turn into a solid mass. The hardening of oil-based paints is based on the same process.”
According to the same source …
“In the heart, the amount of lipofuscin increases progressively with age. Liver cells also contain a great deal of lipofuscin due to their long lives and high rate of autophagocytosis (a liver cell turns over all its organelles in less than a week).”
I have enough evidence about the health problems associated with fish oil and flaxseed oil to fill the pages of an entire book.
Indeed, I’ve written three e-books about it, and will be pleased to comp you, the Editor, with all three if you’re interested in knowing “the other side of the story.”
I’m not saying flaxseed oil and/or fish oil will outright kill a person, but they both contribute to aging and its attendant diseases, mostly “death by a thousand cuts.”
“Age pigments” (“liver spots”) contain no saturated fats, only polyunsaturated ones.
Folks living in Santa Barbara County live about 20 percent longer than other Californians, but savvy omnivores minimizing omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids can further enhance their Aging Escape Velocity.
