(NaturalNews) Relax! It's just chemo... In an enlightening study in Molecular Cancer Research, researchers found that anyone who gets stressed out before chemotherapy (and who wouldn't...) can awaken the stress protein HSF-1, or heat shock factor-1. This one "side effect" of chemotherapy alone makes the treatment worse than the disease by allowing cancer cells to repair themselves in spite of the poisonous chemo. Even when used "correctly", toxic chemotherapy drugs can kill you, destroy your digestive tract, immune system, vascular system, and cause other cancers later on with the impaired immune system and genetic damage.

Most chemotherapeutic drugs are cytotoxic and work by impairing mitosis (cell division), and targeting fast-dividing cells for destruction. Chemotherapy is supposed to kill fast-growing cancer cells but it also targets the body's white blood cells that also grow quickly. This destruction also targets the rapidly growing healthy cells in your hair, digestive system, and bone marrow (where blood cells are produced). Unfortunately, in older tumors and in the center of solid tumors, cell division has already ceased, making them insensitive to chemotherapy even if the chemotherapeutic agent does somehow reach the core of the tumor.

Surviving chemotherapy is not about quality of life

Each year, more than 1 million cancer patients receive outpatient chemotherapy, radiation, or both. On the US National Library of Medicine website (PubMed), - is the news of a study estimating the overall contribution of chemotherapy to 5-year "survival" in adults in the US at a shameful 2.1%. Top this off with 201 side effects listed on the Chemocare website alone. The American Chinese Medicine Association says that "most cancer patients die of chemotherapy." How does this factor into the medical dictum "First Do No Harm"? It is actually misleading to promote chemotherapy for cancer treatment because it permanently damages the body and immune system and causes other cancers to spring up later.

The "double standard" of conventional medicine

In conventional medicine all you hear about is that everything needs to be double blind/ placebo controlled to really know the scientific facts. But chemotherapy drugs are NOT double blind/ placebo controlled. If they were, the placebo might do as well or even better than the chemotherapy. And anything that out-performs chemotherapy would wreak havoc on the Big Pharma hold that is gripping millions of Americans. And yet medical scorn is heaped on natural cures and botanical medicine that only has hundreds if not thousands of years of clinical trials.

R. Webster Kehr of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation says that we are not to believe that the federal government is looking for new cancer cures. He goes on to claim: "The medical establishment could have a 90% cure rate for cancer tomorrow if they really wanted to cure cancer..." There are alternatives to chemotherapy that work and work very well. If you have been put in the position to have to consider chemotherapy, or if you have tried chemotherapy that failed to put your cancer in remission, you will want to make a careful and informed decision before putting your health in the hands of a chronically failed Big Pharma system.
