The typical cancer patient spends no less than $50,000 fighting the disease. Chemotherapy drugs range from $3,000 to $7,000 for a months supply ($36,000 to $84,000 per year). By any standards that's a lot of money. According to Forbes magazine, the cancer drug market just hit $100 billion in annual sales (and could jump 50% in the next four years).
Cancer, A Medical Industry Cash Cow
The epidemic is a huge cash cow for the big pharmaceutical companies and, because of this, their campaigns to silence alternative cancer treatments and cures have been fierce and relentless. They need to keep the "cancer machine" going so as to continue making HUGE profits on chemotherapy drugs, radiotherapy, diagnostic procedures and surgeries.
All this sounds a bit heartless, right? Look at it this way: If the cancer industry allows a cure, then their patient base will gradually shrink and eventually disappear. It makes more "sense" for them to keep a steady continuous stream of cancer patients alive - but ill and coming back for more "medicine."
The Roots, From Way Back
How did this monstrous situation come about? In brief the pharmaceutical industry partnered, some say conspired, with the American Medical Association (AMA) in an shrewd plan to get an upper hand over the medical system way back in the early 1900s.
It went something like this:
- The International bankers who owned the drug and chemical companies back then gained control over the medical education system
- They gave grants to the AMA and leading medical schools in exchange for seats on their boards, and with that the ability to control policy in their favor
- Finally, they shrewdly and skillfully engineered their control of virtually every federal regulatory agency relating to the practice of medicine.
The FDA is complicit in this. They restrict "competition" in the guise of protecting the public, when in reality they are protecting the profits and interests of the drug companies. With that kind of influence and power, it's not too difficult to see how the big pharma/medical industry manages to get away with whatever they've done - and continue doing.
Cancer Treatment and Prevention
Dr. Otto Warburg, a German physiologist and medical doctor, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1931 for figuring out the main cause of cancer. Listen to him: "All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception. "Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous."
Dr Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic, meaning that they can survive without oxygen but cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as would be found in a body in a healthy alkaline state (body pH: 7.35 to 7.45).
Dr. Warburg made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, such as thrives in a body in an acidic state (body pH below 7.35). For more on body pH, the acid/alkali balance within your body, check our the following press release: Cancer Treatment and Prevention
