Delicious Pin It
(NaturalNews) Patrick Swayze's death came as a shock to many people. But not to his own cancer doctor: They know that the five-year survival rates of people being treated with chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer are virtually zero. And Swayze was only the latest in a long list of celebrities dying after being treated with chemotherapy and other toxic forms of western medicine:

Farrah Fawcett died following chemotherapy used to treat anal cancer and liver cancer. (

Famed newscaster Peter Jennings died from chemotherapy treatments for lung cancer.

Former White House press secretary Tony Snow died after receiving chemotherapy for colon cancer. (

Celebrities still battling cancer

Desperate Housewives actress Kathry Joosten is currently battling lung cancer. It's not clear whether she has undergone chemotherapy yet, or plans to, but she did have cancer surgery in 2001 which obviously didn't "cure" the cancer because it has now returned.

Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs looks deathly ill after undergoing not only chemotherapy but also a complicated cancer surgery that removed a part of his pancreas and digestive tract. (

Sheryl Crow is battling breast cancer, but she famously decided to support her immune system with natural medicine by turning to a Traditional Chinese Medicine wellness center called Tao of Wellness ( No doubt her outcome will be vastly improved by this integrative approach. Unfortunately, her hubby Lance Armstrong is more into the conventional drugs-and-chemo approach, and most people probably don't realize the two things that saved Armstrong's life were intense exercise and regular exposure to sunshine during his cycling training (creating vitamin D, a powerful anti-cancer nutrient). (And wearing those little yellow Livestrong bracelets only tags you as being completely brainwashed about cancer and the cancer industry.)

Other celebrities engaging in cancer battles (or who already experienced them) include Sonique, Kylie and Anastacia.

Deadly pharmaceuticals

Beyond those celebrities being harmed or killed by chemotherapy, many are also killed by conventional pharmaceuticals:

Michael Jackson died from an overdose of doctor-prescribed pharmaceuticals.

Tim Russert's death is linked to heart medication (

Bernie Mac died from immune suppression caused by pharmaceuticals (

And Heath Ledger was killed by an overdose of pharmaceuticals prescribed by his doctors (

The cancer industry wants your money

The reason so many celebrities are harmed or killed by the cancer industry is quite simple: The cancer industry is a for-profit business. It makes money by treating cancer, not by curing or preventing cancer.

In fact, there's a huge difference between what the public see with cancer clinics vs. what really happens. The public image of the cancer industry is bright and cheery. "We save lives," they insist, and they claim to offer "support" for cancer survivors (which are more correctly called "chemotherapy survivors").

But behind closed doors, the real picture of the cancer industry is far more insidious. Cancer centers produce primarily two things: 1) Profits, and 2) Body bags (with cancer victims inside).

Cancer is a booming business. There's a ton of money to be made in screening for cancer, then causing cancer with the screening equipment, then diagnosing cancer and treating cancer. The purpose of conventional cancer treatments is not to eliminate the patient's disease, but rather to keep the patient alive long enough to receive a never-ending regimen of expensive, high-profit cancer treatments.

The cancer industry (the conventional cancer clinics, non-profits, drug companies, National Cancer Institute, etc.) flat-out refuses to recommend anti-cancer nutrients (like vitamin D) that could save hundreds of thousands of lives each year. They refuse to speak out against cancer-causing processed meats and carcinogenic chemicals in cosmetics personal care products. They cleverly avoid talking about the environmental causes of cancer, preferring to limit their criticism to only tobacco.

Meanwhile, they churn their gargantuan profit machines through a sea of cancer victims, plucking profits from the near-dead bodies of those they claim to treat. And when parents of teens refuse to subject their children to the chemotherapy poisons forced upon patients, Child Protective Services gets called, and the State kidnaps the children and forces them to be injected with chemotherapy. (

The cancer industry, by any honest assessment, is a sham. Pure quackery.

That's why two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling says, "Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them."

Dr. Julian Whitaker, founder of the Whitaker Wellness Institute ( also wrote about the cancer industry, saying:

Without exception, all the oncologists I talked to about Dr Burzynski were scornful and hostile. Twenty- five years of practicing unconventional medicine did not prepare me for what I discovered. Delving into attitudes, actions, and beliefs of modern oncologists was like opening a box of cereal and finding it full of worms. They just don't care… The question I kept asking was why, and the answer to that question gradually began to creep out: Dr Burzynski's discovery threatens one of the largest and most lucrative industries in the history of mankind, the cancer treatment industry.

All those radiation machines and doctors who run them
All those chemotherapy drugs and the doctors who prescribe them
All those so called studies that just juggle the doses of chemo & radiation
All those surgeons who have been flailing at cancer for over a 100 years...

Also it is not just about money, it is about strongly held beliefs, beliefs that have meshed with the personality of virtually everyone in the cancer treatment industry, especially the physicians. In short, these beliefs are that cancer can only be treated with therapies that mutilate, poison, or burn the patient, in the hope that they "kill" the cancer…..Therefore, each patient who is miraculously cured by Burzynski's nontoxic therapy is not viewed as a breakthrough, or even as something good, but rather as a dangerous messenger of heresy, a terrible threat to their beliefs.

The vested interests

The vested interests in cancer don't want the general public to hear about cancer cures and natural remedies. That cuts into their profits. They would far prefer that patients remain illiterate victims who have no knowledge of anything beyond surgery, chemotherapy and pharmaceuticals.

Anything that offers freedom to cancer patients -- freedom of choice, freedom of medicine, freedom to choose their healing modality -- is a threat to the powerful vested interests. And it is those vested interested that are driving first-world nations into disease and bankruptcy, by the way. Rather than allowing natural cancer cures and prevention strategies to see the light of day, they attack and discredit natural anti-cancer products and therapies, much like a Chicago mob boss snuffs out his competition to keep control of the streets.

One day, when America's economy finally collapses under the weight of irreversible debt, remember this: The cancer industry was one of the major players that drove this nation into bankruptcy. A population suffering from high rates of cancer isn't very productive. Lives are lost and economic productivity plunges. Money that could have been spent on schools and technology research is, instead, spent on conventional cancer quackery known as "chemotherapy." It wastes money, it wastes lives, and it challenges the boundaries of sanity.

This goes for any nation: If you have a profitable cancer industry, you have no long-term economic future, because the cancer industry will always find clever new ways to cause cancer (mammography) and rake in the profits by keeping the population diseased. The only way for any nation to have a real future is to take the profit out of sickness and disease through a radical restructuring of the entire medical system.

And remember this: If you're an evil bastard, and you want to make a lot of money (trillions) off of other peoples' suffering, simply latch on to a deadly disease, sign sponsorship deals with the drug companies, tell the public you're "looking for a cure" and then use the money you raise from donation events to actually cause the disease in the population at large.

This is most easily accomplished by incorporating some sort of disease-causing element into your "screening" process so that when people get your "free screening," they are simultaneously being diseased and are likely to become a future customer. In the cancer business, this is accomplished through mammography which emits radiation, causing breast cancer.

It's a great little scam for those who are willing to exchange ethics for profits.
