New cancer info released from Johns Hopkins

***because cancer affects so many of our lives and the lives our family and friends, I thought I should share this one.  If you only have time to read some of this info, start at #11 and read from that point on!


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 size. 

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

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 diet 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 

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 amounts. 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 

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet 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 be 
an 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 caffeine Green 
tea is a better alternative e 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 

1. No plastic containers in micro. 

2. No water bottles in freezer. 

3. 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 

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 shared to anyone important in your life.
