Daniel Hauser and the Side Effects of Cancer Treatments for Hodgkin's Disease
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) Conventional cancer treatments for Hodgkin's Disease are extremely dangerous to your health. Both radiation and chemotherapy are extremely toxic, and according to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, undergoing such treatments increases the risk of future cancers by three hundred percent.(1)
One of the most common side effects of chemotherapy is, ironically, cancer. It's a classic example of conventional medicine: The "treatment" for the disease promotes yet more disease, resulting in guaranteed repeat business from patients ("customers") who are never allowed to cure anything. Instead, diseases are "managed" with a lifetime of drugs, repeat doctor visits and complete isolation from anything that might actually cure the patient and end the cycle of dependency on doctors and pharmaceuticals.
Even the National Cancer Institute admits chemotherapy and radiation cause more cancers. What follows below is text from the NCI website that describes the long-term side effects of treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
As you read this list, note that this is what the Minnesota judge is now forcing Daniel Hauser to undergo -- essentially at gunpoint. This decision puts the state of Minnesota in the position of engaging in chemical child abuse.
Read this list and decide for yourself:

Watching for Long-term Side Effects
Almost any cancer treatment can have side effects. Some may last for a few weeks to many months, but others can be permanent. Don't hesitate to tell your cancer care team about any symptoms or side effects that bother you so they can help you manage them.
Second cancers: One of the most serious side effects of Hodgkin disease treatment is the chance of the person having a second cancer. A type of leukemia called AML (acute myeloid leukemia) happens in about 5% of people who get certain types of treatment for Hodgkin disease. If this happens, it's usually in the first few years after treatment. It is seen more often in older people.
While radiation treatment alone does not increase the risk for leukemia much, it can have other long-term side effects. Young women (under age 30) who have radiation to the chest have a much higher chance of getting breast cancer many years after their treatment. These women should be careful about following the guidelines for finding breast cancer early. They should think about starting to have mammograms at an early age.
Both men and women treated with radiation have a higher chance of getting lung cancer, mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the lung), and thyroid cancer. Although there is no good test for finding lung cancer or thyroid cancer early, frequent follow-up exams and chest x-rays may be helpful. It should be no surprise that the chance of getting lung cancer is much higher in smokers, so not smoking is really important for people who have had Hodgkin disease.
Cancer of muscle or bone, called sarcomas, can also begin in the area that was treated with radiation. Digestive tract cancers such as colon cancer are also more likely. Another type of cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, develops in about 2% of patients with Hodgkin disease. It is thought that this risk is due mostly to the disease itself and not the treatment.
Fertility problems: Another long-term effect of chemotherapy and radiation treatment is the chance of not being able to have children (sterility). Reproductive functions may or may not return to normal after treatment. Radiation treatment to an area near the ovaries will cause a woman to become sterile unless the ovaries are protected from the radiation field.
Infections: For unknown reasons, the immune system of people with Hodgkin disease does not work as it should. The treatment of Hodgkin disease can add to this problem. All Hodgkin survivors should keep up with their vaccinations, including flu shots, and make sure that they get treatment for any infections.
Thyroid problems: The thyroid and the heart can also be affected by treatment. For many people, radiation to the thyroid will keep the gland from making enough thyroid hormone. They will need to take thyroid medication the rest of their lives. Thyroid function should be tested at least yearly.
Heart disease and strokes: Radiation to the heart can injure the arteries that carry blood to the heart muscle. In the past, people who have had radiation to the chest had a higher rate of heart attacks. With more modern treatment, this has become less of a problem, but it's still important that survivors not smoke and that they follow the ACS diet guidelines.
Radiation to the neck increases the chance of stroke because of damage done to the blood vessels in the neck that supply the brain. Once again it is important to avoid smoking. It is also important to have regular check-ups with your doctor and have any high blood pressure treated.
What's truly amazing about this list is that regardless of the harm it describes, the ACS continues to recommend more radiation! For example, in women who receive radiation for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, the risk of future breast cancers rises significantly. And yet, in response to that, the ACS recommends that women get MORE radiation in the form of "early mammograms!"
This list doesn't even mention other side effects of radiation, by the way, such as permanent brain damage called "chemo brain." (http://www.naturalnews.com/020665.html)
Chemotherapy also damages the kidneys and liver, often permanently.
The one thing chemotherapy is really, really good at is creating repeat business for hospitals and doctors. Poisoning a patient with chemo practically guarantees they will experience future health problems demanding medical intervention.
State-mandated child abuseAfter reading this list, it should be obvious that medical authorities in Minnesota are engaged in state-sponsored child abuse. The decision made by this ignorant judge significantly increases Daniel Hauser's risk of:
• Future cancers (lung cancer, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, bone cancer, etc.)
• Fertility problems
• Thyroid problems
• Heart disease
This is the future that Daniel Hauser has been sentenced to by an ignorant Minnesota judge (and a gang of money-grubbing doctors).
It can be called nothing other than blatant child abuse, and yet it remains the standard in so-called "health care."
The American Cancer Society, by the way, dares not mention anything about Vitamin D to patients or the public. Any talk about this nutrient appears to be censored by the ACS. Perhaps that's because vitamin D prevents 77 percent of all cancers (http://www.naturalnews.com/021892.html), and if the public learned the truth about vitamin D, cancer rates would plummet and the ACS wouldn't be so big and important anymore.
I find it incredible that, in America, it is perfectly legal for a parent to poison their child by feeding them chemically-laden processed foods that directly promote cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more -- but when a parent attempts to protect their child from chemicals, they are considered a criminal and hunted down by the state.
That this exists in America today is an alarming statement about the utter conspiracy against true health that's now being operated by the FDA, drug companies and the cancer industry.
