Pharmaceutical companies want $1.2 billion to treat colon cancer

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Cost of prescription drugs to treat colon cancer are skyrocketing beyond belief. Adding just a few months to patients' lives can cost as much as $31,000 per patient in drug costs alone. And that means big profits for pharmaceutical companies.

As always, the American consumer is getting shafted by Big Pharma, which continues to claim that such sky-high prices are necessary to fund R&D. It's a lie, of course: far more money goes into advertising and promotion than R&D, and the exact same drugs are frequently available at a fraction of the U.S. price when purchased overseas or through online pharmacies. But of course, drug companies and the FDA are doing everything they can to make sure Americans can't buy drugs from overseas.

All this is a moot point anyway: colon cancer can be prevented and even cured with treatment options costing a tiny fraction of what these prescription drugs cost. Prevention is dirt-cheap, and most colon cancer could be easily prevented by changes in diet that eliminate processed foods and cancer-causing ingredients like sodium nitrite (found in virtually all packaged meat products) and red meat.

Better yet, colon cancer can frequently be reversed through treatment with superfoods like spirulina, chlorella, broccoli sprouts and The Ultimate Meal. Medicinal herbs like graviola and healing foods like garlic, ginger and onions can also help reverse colon cancer.

It's your choice: you can spend $31,000 on dangerous anti-cancer chemotherapy drugs that add a few months to your life, or you can spend less than $1,000 on medicinal herbs, superfoods, and healing foods that actually help your own immune system cure your cancer for life. Of course, the natural approach only works if you stop eating those cancer-causing foods that gave you the disease in the first place: red meat, fried foods, fast food, soft drinks, refined white sugar, white flour, hydrogenated oils and so on. If you want to be free of cancer, you have to permanently take these out of your diet starting right now -- no exceptions. Plus, you have to engage in regular physical exercise like jogging, walking, swimming or doing Pilates or yoga. To top it off, go see a naturopathic physician who can give you more personalized recommendations for how to prevent and reverse colon cancer.

Preventing colon cancer is actually very easy. All you have to do is decide to take care of your body and stop giving yourself cancer through poor lifestyle choices.
