There has never been found in the entire world in all the hours with all the equipment and the billions of dollars in the 100 years of the declared “war on cancer” A “Cancer germ” “a first cause”. Oh sure all the usual suspect virus and germs may be present in the cancerous environment but they bear no blame for its origins, as much as mainstream medicine would have you believe. Take for instance this mainstream statement which appears on the surface to be reasonable.
“As a cell, you need oxygen to breathe, the same way that the organism does. That dividing nest of cells will in some sense suffocate from lack of nutrients and oxygen and from their own waste unless they have a blood supply. It is now clear that induction and new blood vessel growth – the process of angiogenesis – is critical for almost all cancers, some less than others. Perhaps the leukemia’s and the blood-borne ones are less angiogenesis-dependent, but it may be that all cancers, in some sense, activate the vascular system to help support it”.
But what if this activation of the vascular system was not for a source of nourishment, but for the sole purpose of spreading, of supporting metastasis? What if cancer used the vascular system to create an interwoven network link that was systemic? Is this the reason cancer keeps re-emerging, why it can seemingly invade the body at will? Even after the chemo and radiation bombardment? The fact is Cancer cells do not require oxygen; on the contrary, oxygen kills cancer cells. The metabolic process of the cancerous cell is quite strange to observe as it busily coats itself in a very tough protein shell. This of course stops the respiratory cycle of the cell, the sodium / Potassium pump. This is an oscillating “antagonism” between these two minerals that pumps fluids across the cell membrane. On the inside of the cell is the Potassium whose function is to keep the cell alkaline. All this shuts down, nothing penetrates the shell. Antibodies can’t kill the cell because they can’t penetrate the protein coat. Now one would think that the cell would just die, would just rot away. NO WAY !! Something amazing starts to happen. A fermentation of glucose! The cell is living by the fermentation of sugar ! It doesn’t need the blood for oxygen. It’s after blood sugar! Cell division is uninterrupted because division is a magnetic/ polarizing procedure. As long as the cancer cell can maintain its protein coat, stop Potassium getting in, and maintain its glucose supply, it can thrive.
So here we have a starting point for thought. Any who are interested, and I suggest everyone should be, in understanding why Cancer is increasing in society at a seemingly unstoppable rate to ponder on the above. Don’t be sidetracked, keep in mind the failure of mainstream medicine, not the TV success, the failure in your town, maybe even your family or friends.
Cancer does not develop for some unknown reason. Once you understand why and how it develops, and learn how to support your body so that it may more effectively fight cancer, it may never be too late to get healthy again. (No matter what type, they have the same underlying causes.) Cancer is a natural process where, to put it simply, an overworked and weakened immune system cannot kill it as fast as it is multiplying. Toxin, carcinogens, radiation, even viruses, combined with an unhealthy internal environment , and in conjunction with a weakened immune system, cause more cells to turn cancerous, and allows them to thrive.
You must change your internal environment to one in which cancer cannot thrive. Just as we couldn't live on Mars with no oxygen, cancer can't exist in cells where there is enough oxygen. Unfortunately, all too often our cells are low in oxygen. Fortunately it is possible to increase the levels of oxygen in cells, thus, making your body's internal environment a place where cancer can't easily survive.

Cancer cell being attacked by the immune system
Cancer is a perfectly natural process. A very small percentage of cells in every person who has ever lived turn cancerous. And the body usually gets rid of those cancerous cells before they do harm. This process has been going on for eons. It is only when more cancer cells are being created than the body can get rid of that the problem comes. With increased toxins, viruses, carcinogens, etc. our immune systems have become significantly overworked and weakened.
The underlying cause of all cancer, no matter what type, may have been discovered by Otto Warburg over 50 years ago. He actually won two Nobel Prizes for work proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He stated “that the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.
Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.
Cancer is an unacknowledged plague. The media keep the focus on individual cases to conceal this fact "in plain sight". But the truth is, if one in three people had just about any other disease with the mortality rate of cancer it would be declared a plague. This is because the medical profession, the dominant health paradigm, are absolutely clueless about what to do. You do not hear the term “cured of cancer" in the mainstream speak, it is termed " cancer survivor", that is because there are no " cures". In fact the Oncology fraternity claim that if they keep you alive for five years after diagnoses, you are termed "cured" then if your die a week later you have " relapsed". This all gives the calming impression that they at least have a good handle on the problem. They do not. High standing professors of oncology regularly die from cancer, if they of all people cannot cure themselves what hope the rest?
I am going to attempt a great feat. I am going to try to simplify the story of cancer so that it fits into this absurdly insufficient forum. Simplify the story so that it may be understood by any reader. Enable you to understand that all the chrome and glass, all the powerful microscopes, all the platitudes in white lab coats, are not explaining cancer to you at all, not because they are clueless as to its causes, but they are clueless as to its cure To understand this simplified explanation you will need to put aside these mental specters’, these false images of authorities expertise this dogma in a lab coat. You will need to not fear the truth when it speaks to your heart. Then perchance you will understand your role in cancer and how you must act on your own behalf, stop abnegating responsibility for your health to a self-congratulating failure.
Remember that because of the politicized monopoly that modern petro chemical based medicine has secured for itself regarding Cancer, in that it claims exclusivity in the understanding and treatment of Cancer, as directed by law, we make no claims as to treatment. But what we can do is educate. We can simplify the debate, take it out of the hands of elitist language and engage the public. After all it is the public who need the understanding seeing as they are the victims of Cancer. Our aim here is to collate the various contributors to Cancer, bring them all together in a way that can be grasped by the reader. No science speak just plain language science. Thus empowered with knowledge the public will understand they have more power in themselves to win this so called “war on Cancer" than they are being told.
We have been looking at the mechanism of the Cancer cell to live off the fermentation of sugar (glucose ) rather than Oxygen. We have seen how Cancer can migrate (metastasize) throughout the body. We have seen pictures of what a Cancer cell looks like.
Now, nothing exists in nature in an isolated state. There must be correspondences out there somewhere, and there is. There is a life form that mimics the Cancer mechanism to a tee. And that life form can invade the human ecology. It even bears striking similarities in appearance. This life form is FUNGUS. So let us examine this life form and see if we can uncover any possible connection.

Most people simply would not think that one of the first steps in a cancer prevention program might be to cut out excess yeasts or Candida infections. Certainly few oncology doctors would tell a newly diagnosed cancer patient to go on an anti-yeast, anti-Candida diet. Moreover, they will probably give you antibiotics, steroids and other drugs that will only make your yeast infections worse!
However, there is a growing body of evidence that yeast infections, and particularly Candida, are involved in a number of cancers. They are definitely an acknowledged problem in certain cancer treatments, for example in Multiple Myeloma and leukemia, a by-product of the heavy drug routine and the lack of a strong immune system. But could yeasts and Candida actually lie behind many cancers, far more than Doctors would expect? Could they even be the cause of a cancer? Or a factor that could drive the disease as it progresses?
Try this for size: ´Cancer patients undergoing radio or chemotherapy did not finally succumb to the cancer itself, but to an infestation of Candida albicans´. That was taken from Contemporary Oncology Magazine 1993 in the USA.
Systemic candidiasis in hospitalized patients has increased steadily over the past four decades and represents a significant cause of morbidity and mortality among severely ill individuals Candidemia is the fourth most prevalent cause of bloodstream infections. This rise in fungal infections is exacerbated by the increasing population of immune compromised patients, the prevalence of treatment with multiple broad-spectrum antibiotics, and the common use of indwelling intravascular devices.
Genetics, the battle horse of modern oncology, is about to give up the ghost, together with its endless explanations based on enzymatic and receptor processes. Actually, it has already failed – it is just that no one can think of anything else that can take its place. The consequence of the oncological establishment’s inability to admit the failure of this line of research, which is at this point scientifically indefensible, is the continuous waste of a great quantity of economic, scientific and human resources.
What road to take? Where to look for those minimal logical elements that can shed light on the ignorance that pervades oncology?
Many thinkers – especially biologists – believe that by applying the Darwinian Theory to the evolution of living beings, it may be possible to progress down a new path when it comes to the so-called degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiopathies, and mental illness. According to this line of thought, these diseases are not attributable to environmental or genetic factors as is presently believed, but to infections.
Therefore, the answer to the question of what causes a degenerative disease can be found in the discipline that more than anything else has given luster to medicine, and which has promoted medicine from a mere practice to a science, that is microbiology.
It is in fact clear that, with the exception of bacteriology, the state of knowledge in this field of research is still quite limited, especially when it comes to viruses, sub-viruses and fungi, whose pathogenic valence, unfortunately, is little known.
It is true that scholars have given more attention to these biological entities recently, and in fact, the concept of “innocuous co-existence” attributed to many parasites of the body has begun to be questioned with much greater conviction. More determination is needed, however, in this process of the revision of microbiology so that the close connection between micro-organisms and degenerative diseases can be clarified.
I believe that it is by focusing on just one of these shadowy areas – on mycology, the realm of fungi – that it will become possible to discover the correct answers to questions concerning the problem of tumors.
Much evidence indicates that this is the road to take. The analogy between psoriasis – an incurable disease of the skin that many treat as fungus – and tumors, which are also an incurable disease of the organism, the symptomatological overlapping of systemic candidiasis and cancer, and the strict genetic relationship between mycetes and neoplastic masses make this clear. These are all elements that support and confirm the point of view that all types of cancer, as happens in the vegetal world, are caused by a fungus.
A fungus infection – that of the Candida species – could supply the explanation for why a tumor occurs, and it is in this direction that research should move in the attempt to solve the problem of cancer once and for all.
The second most important contributor to Cancer is the high fat diet. The typical fat based fast food and denatured supermarket processed food has massively contributed to the growing Cancer plague. This is not an opinion, this is a scientific fact. From a Naturopathic perspective, the dietary intake of animal fats in our society is grossly in excess, almost obscenely so. People are literally saturated with saturated fat ! But what’s this got to do with cancer? We know that a diet like this gives rise to many diseases, but Cancer? What’s the link? Where is the connection?
Cholesterol, this is the link. This stuff is bad news indeed when there is too much of it in the body. We all know what it can do to your arteries. But unfortunately there is another natural and major, seminal, intrinsic interaction. HORMONE STIMULATION! The implications here could not be clearer ! There is a clear and present danger of cancer when hormones are out of whack, especially the sex hormones. This fact was brilliantly illustrated by the failed HRT therapy debacle staged by petrochemical based medicine inflicting a high cost on the trusting public.
There is a definite provable link between the sex hormones and Cancer. Let’s look at the underlying mechanisms of why high fat intake and obesity affects the risk of cancer.
Estrogen levels. Adiposity influences the production of and availability of the body’s sex hormones including estrogen, androgens and progesterone. In post-menopausal women estrogen is made in the peripheral body fat whilst in pre-menopausal women it is produced primarily in the ovary. This may explain a higher risk of breast and endometrial cancer for overweight post-menopausal women but not pre-menopausal women. Fortunately, estrogen levels have been shown to reduce following weight reduction programs..
Insulin and Insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF-1). The increased risks of cancer or its rate of progression is not just hormone related. We know this because overweight women have a worse prognosis after cancer whether their cancers where sensitive to estrogen (ER+ve) or not (ER-ve). One mechanism for a non-hormone related increased risk of cancer progression is via IGF-1 which is higher in overweight people. Higher levels have also been associated with breast, ovary and prostate cancer. This protein, also higher in sedentary individuals, has been shown to promote cancer cell division (encourage proliferation), inhibit apoptosis (cells don’t die when they should) and encourage them to spread.
Leptin. This is a multifunctional neuro-endocrine hormone generated primarily from fat cells. There is a direct correlation with the amount of body fat levels and circulating blood levels of leptin. There is also a correlation between leptin and serum insulin, IGF-1 and progesterone levels. Leptin has been shown in several laboratory experiments to promote proliferation, reduce apoptosis and reduce the stickiness of cancer cells encouraging them to spread and metastasize. Higher leptin levels are associated with higher expression of Cycloxidase 2 which also, as described below, encourages cancers to grow faster and spread.
Progesterone. Another important hormone which would affect women is progesterone. Compared to women with ‘normal’ weight pre-menopausal obese women in particular have reduced serum progesterone. There is a significant body of evidence that progesterone plays a protective role in cancer progression particularly ovary. Progesterone increases in pregnancy which also adds some protection against breast and ovarian cancer. In post-menopausal women who are not overweight (BMI < 35kg/m2) the evidence is less clear. The risk of breast cancer, in a large study from Sweden, was higher in women taking HRT containing progestin than those containing estrogen alone. On the other hand, another study of postmenopausal women with breast cancer from Boston USA, women with higher blood levels of estrogen and androgens had a worse prognosis but no such correlation was found with progesterone. It well be therefore, that the protective effect of progesterone is greater in pre-menopausal women. One more thing that needs to be addressed is the Breast cancer-related effects of eating cheese Components of cheese, including calcium, vitamin D, stearate, and conjugated linoleic acid have been found to induce apoptosis of breast cancer cells or reduce mammary tumor size and incidence in the laboratory. However, many (but by no means all) population studies have found that cheese consumption is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. The factors that may contribute to this increased risk include the fact that much of the milk we drink today is produced from pregnant cows (in which estrogen and progesterone levels are markedly elevated), as well as the presence of saturated fat, recombinant bovine growth hormone, and various environmental contaminants in cheese. . The sad thing is that many products that contribute to the risks of cancer in fundamental ways, jump on the pink ribbon bandwagon. I saw in the freezer in our supermarket a packet of frozen chicken breasts, and the packet had been" pinked".
We have examined two of the leading contributors to Cancer; firstly we saw that Candida yeast has many serious implications in the Cancer story. This invasive yeast thrives off the typical high processed junk food diet of the average citizen. This junk food turns to sugars almost instantly because they are empty carbohydrates, the typical burger bun illustrates a classical non-food sugar bomb. This rubbish foodstuff devoid of nutritional value raises the blood sugar level alarmingly. Everybody knows what this can do in regards to diabetes, But this junk food is a two edged killer in disguise. Cancer and Candida Yeast parasite off your blood sugar. The more sugar your blood contains, the more these parasites thrive. It then becomes an absurd exercise in futility to attack the Cancer cells with petro chemical derived drugs whilst the environment remains unchanged, is in fact made worse, by adding to the toxic burden, with this kind of ill-informed chemical attack. But these two are not the final story. Let us now examine the third important element in the puzzle of Cancer. This third contributor to the Cancerous condition is not a disease agent, it is a deficiency. That’s correct, because of the deficiency of this substance the susceptibility to Cancer grows. Not much has been said on the subject of deficiencies and their role in Cancer by the orthodox petrochemical based medical brigade. They seem to be fixated on finding an enemy they can attack, wage war on with their chemical weapons of mass destruction. The deficiency is in the mineral IRON. Now again, everyone knows, because TV ads are constantly telling us how deficient in Iron we are, especially women. It seems anemia is rife. If that is the case then here is the third reason Cancer can thrive in the body. Cancer cannot thrive in a high oxygen environment. Cancer prefers a low oxygen or anaerobic state. If the iron becomes deficient the blood cells cannot be oxygenated properly, they become vitality deficient. In this weakened state blood cells cannot carry out their functions in a proper manner. This impacts on all other tissue cells throughout the body, but most of the impact is on the LYMPHATIC system. Remember that as well as nourishment the blood also deals with toxins. If this toxin removal mechanism is impaired then we have a condition called auto intoxication or self poisoning. When chemotherapy is used to further insult this compromised toxin removal system by adding an obscenely virulent burden of dead protein matter in the form of dead cells, both good and bad. Radiation treatment as well as being CARCINOGENIC of itself it too strews dead protein cells throughout the body and eventually into the Lymphatic / blood streams. Low oxygenation of the body systems is, from a Naturopathic standpoint one of the forgotten major contributors to the Cancer Syndrome. But there’s more insidious factors at play than just these three. Next we will examine what could be the most significant contributor to the Cancer Syndrome The fourth great contributor to the Cancer plague “hides in plain sight” so to speak. It uses smoke and mirror trickery. This fourth very powerful contributor to the spread of Cancer by its actions on the physical body is the petrochemical based medical community itself. Now I know this might raise a lot of knee jerks and mind binds from the birdbrained protectionists, but it bears further pursuit and I will do my darn best to simplify the discourse down and reveal the way in which modern medicine, no matter how Nobel their cause, stubbornly persists in failed science and renounced theories, to the great cost to the public. I have said this article is not about politics and I won’t launch into a tirade here, but I will bring forth serious concerns that the Naturopathic profession holds in regard to the practice of conventional medicine. These are widespread concerns; they are not simply my opinion, although I fully endorse them. Modern medicine is based upon the Pasteurian theory of germs. They have assigned to germs “first cause”. That means that a disease arises directly out of the presence and actions of germs. Therefore, if you wage war on germs you will eliminate disease. Over the minute time of 200 odd years that “modern” medicine has existed it has developed an arsenal of ever more powerful chemical and biological weapons to wage a devastating war on these germs. Now, we do not need a double blind study in some chrome and glass isolation booth to look about the neighborhood and know beyond a shadow of doubt that people are sicker than ever. Consuming bucket loads of chemical medicines and degenerating at an alarming rate. The chronic disease explosion is mind boggling. The gross failure lies in the flawed germ theory. Modern smoke and mirror medicine relies solely on the temporary repression of symptoms. Now you see it -now you don’t’ illusion. But this approach never actually cures anything. This is the “soldier on” mindlessness that has gripped the population. You are tricked into thinking that just because the obvious surface symptoms subside you are “cured” All better now. But unsurprisingly, the symptoms inevitably return, usually increased in severity or mutated to a more virulent form. More symptom suppression is applied by killing off enough germs to suppress symptoms. This amateur approach has contributed considerably to the ability of Cancer to establish and maintain itself. And it is in the LYMPHATIC system where much of the damage is occurring as I write. It is impossible, completely utterly impossible, for a life form to exist outside of its specific environment. If the conditions suitable to support that life form exist, that life form will thrive. This is the basis of the law of life. This is immutable law. Let’s look at the Lymphatic system and learn.
Say the word detox to most doctors and they assume you’re talking about heroin addicts. When you tell them you mean the body, in particular organ detox, they start to look at you funny. The concept of detoxing a congested organ they tell you is rubbish, just new age fringe medicine myth. Doctors believe your internal organs are automatons, fixed in function, needing no upkeep. Yet they freely accept the concept of congestive heart disease, and they gaily go about detoxing your arteries. Congestive lung disease is another congested organ disease. But mention the liver or the lymph and these same doctors deride the idea. Yet it is in the Lymph nodes throughout the body that Cancerous tumors arise. If the lymphatic system is overloaded with accumulated waste products in the form of years of mucus protein aborted by medicine from being eliminated from the body, and years of dead and decaying protein particles from the likes of antibiotic overuse, you have a severely compromised lymphatic system. Much is spruiked on TV about the “Immune system” but little is ever explained as to what or where it is. The Lymphatic system is the bastion of the immune system. Where goes the lymphatic’s, there goes the immunity. Perfect conditions exist in the lymphatic stream for the happy flourishing of many disease processes. Cancer is the end point of this abuse of the internal streams of cleanliness and protection. Now let’s look at some pictures of the Lymphatic system and you will realise that the places we get cancer are also the places of major lymphatic nodes. And that if these nodes go wrong you have tumorous growths. The blue parts in the pictures are the lymph nodes..
What I am going to do next is zero in on the breast lymphatic’s and how they are intimately implicated in breast cancer. Not because they are being attacked by some exogenous malignant entity. But because they are being compromised, they are breaking down, succumbing to their created environment. And that means the immune system also is breaking down, succumbing to its environment
If you look at the picture of the breast lymph you will see where I have red circled it.. This is where a Bra exerts constant pressure, restricting flow and hence drainage. Some large breasted women wear the bra 24 hours a day. This is a very dangerous habit and it is large breasted women who are at most risk of developing Cancerous Nodes at this site. Another danger of restricting the flow of lymph is that it is not only pregnant women that produce lactate, this can happen at the time of ovulation for instance. This lactate is usually resorbed into the lymph and eliminated. But if this lactate is not resorbed there is a very real danger, What we have here is a protein and a protein residue will start to decompose, break down into a toxic residue in the breast tissue. If this happens then there is the danger of setting up a toxic situation wherein cellular breakdown into a Cancerous state can occur. It is essential that unrestricted lymphatic circulation be maintained in all breast tissue to ensure proper drainage of toxins. wearing a Bra particularly the underwired type is only adding to the danger of developing breast disease.
Prostate Cancer can be initiated from the same restrictive practices as bra wearing. Too tight underpants have been a major contributor to lymphatic flow congestion in males. Another very relevant contributor is the fact that men seem to sit for longer periods than females. If you think about it on a daily basis you get a pattern something like this. Men get up in the morning and sit in their cars or on the train going to work, they may spend their day sitting at a desk, then they sit in their cars and drive home and spend the evening sitting watching television. Of course not all men follow this pattern, and not all men get Prostate Cancer. The more active the lifestyle the more Testicular lymphatic circulation there is, the less chance of misfortune.
It is not the intention of this brief missive to suggest neither treatments nor cures. Prevention is the primary cure. I will close with this final observation. Cancer is not a disease you catch. Cancer is a disease you cultivate via lifestyle choices including the triggering of genetic pre-disposition.
