Macklin Medical Mission - Cancer Vanishes Without Treatment (2)

Cancers Can Vanish Without Treatment, but How?
[or, Cancer Cured by High IQ White Blood Cells]


Call it the arrow of cancer. Like the arrow of time, it was supposed to point in one direction. Cancers grew and worsened. [But not for everyone – why - Our little Friends – The Mighty White Blood Cells.

But as a paper in The Journal of the American Medical Association noted last week, data from more than two decades of screening for breast and prostate cancer call that view into question. Besides finding
tumours that would be lethal if left untreated, screening appears to be finding many small tumours that would not be a problem if they were left alone, undiscovered by screening. They were destined to stop growing on their own or shrink, or even, at least in the case of some breast cancers, disappear. [For some of us White blood cells – long known as the body’s army cells dealt with them in a timely fashion]

“The old view is that cancer is a linear process,” said Dr. Barnett Kramer, associate director for disease prevention at the National Institutes of Health. “A cell acquired a mutation, and little by little it acquired more and more mutations. Mutations are not supposed to revert spontaneously.”

So, Dr. Kramer said, the image was “an arrow that moved in one direction.” But now, he added, it is becoming increasingly clear that cancers require more than mutations to progress. They need the cooperation of surrounding cells and even, he said, “the whole organism, the person,” whose immune system or hormone levels, for example, can squelch or fuel a tumour.
Cancer, Dr. Kramer said, is a dynamic [two way process] process.

It was a view that was hard for some [indeed many] cancer doctors and researchers to accept. But some of the skeptics have changed their minds and decided that, contrary as it seems to everything they had thought, cancers can disappear on their own. [Hence in terms of over all survival for the human race, cancer is simply incapable of killing us all off – as white blood cells adapted to the presence of cancerous cells step forward for the most of us - as we shall see]

“At the end of the day, I’m not sure how certain I am about this, but I do believe it,” said Dr. Robert M. Kaplan, the chairman of the department of health services at the School of Public Health at the University of California, Los Angeles, adding, “The weight of the evidence suggests that there is reason to believe.”

Disappearing tumours are well known in testicular cancer. Dr. Jonathan Epstein at Johns Hopkins says it does not happen often, but it happens.
A young man may have a lump in his testicle, but when doctors remove the organ all they find is a big scar. The tumour that was there is gone. Or, they see a large scar and a tiny tumour because more than 95 percent of the tumour had disappeared [destroyed by white blood cells which identified cancer cells as non-normal cells as they are supposed to, and simply removed as waste by the body’s own system] on its own by the time the testicle was removed.

Or a young man will show up with a big tumour near his kidney. Doctors realize that it started somewhere else, so they look for its origin. Then they discover a scar in the man’s testicle, the only remnant of the original cancer because no tumour is left.

Testicular cancer is unusual; most others do not disappear. But there is growing evidence that cancers can go backward or stop, and researchers are being forced to reassess their notions of what cancer is and how it develops.

Of course, cancers do not routinely go away, and no one is suggesting that patients avoid treatment because of such occasional occurrences.
“Biologically, it is a rare phenomenon to have an advanced cancer go into remission,” said Dr. Martin Gleave, a professor of urology at the University of British Columbia.

But knowing more about how tumours develop and sometimes reverse course might help doctors decide which tumours can be left alone and which need to be treated, something that is now not known in most cases.
Cancer cells and pre-cancerous cells are so common that nearly everyone by middle age or old age is riddled with them, said Thea Tlsty, a professor of pathology at the University of California, San Francisco. That was discovered in autopsy studies of people who died of other causes, with no idea that they had cancer cells or pre-cancerous cells. They did not have large tumours or symptoms of cancer. “The really interesting question,” Dr. Tlsty said, “is not so much why do we get cancer as why don’t we get cancer?” [For a great many of us white blood cells adapt at the presence of pre-cancerous cells and take the necessary remedial action before things get out of hand.]

The earlier a cell is in its path toward an aggressive cancer, researchers say, the more likely it is to reverse course [with the presence of adaptive white blood cells]. So, for example, cells that are early precursors of cervical cancer are likely to revert. One study found that 60 percent of pre-cancerous cervical cells, found with Pap tests, revert to normal within a year; 90 percent revert within three years.

[For those who don’t and cancer takes hold, their white blood cells can be with withdrawn and in a lab “adapted” or “translated” with “cancer-like” cells with the help of T-cells and then re-introduced back into the host body and “off they go” killing all cancerous material and tumours within a matter of weeks. This process is currently in clinical trials as we speak and works on cancer patients no matter what stage the cancer is in.]

And the dynamic process of cancer development appears to be the reason that screening for breast cancer or prostate cancer finds huge numbers of early cancers without a corresponding decline in late stage cancers.

If every one of those early cancers were destined to turn into an advanced cancer, then the total number of cancers should be the same after screening is introduced, but the increase in early cancers should be balanced by a decrease in advanced cancers. [Hence the presence of adapted white blood cells]

That has not happened with screening for breast and prostate cancer. So the hypothesis is that many early cancers go nowhere [and not on their own]. And, as with breast cancer, there is indirect evidence [actually very direct and very significant evidence] that some actually disappear. [There is only one mechanism that the body has that can do this and this is the white blood cell hard at work.]

It is harder to document disappearing prostate cancers; researchers say they doubt it happens. But it does. Instead, they say, it “seems” as if many cancers start to grow then stop or grow very slowly, as has been shown in studies like one now being done at Johns Hopkins. When men have small tumours with cells that do not look terribly deranged, doctors at Johns Hopkins offer them an option of “active surveillance.” They can forgo having their prostates removed or destroyed and be followed with biopsies. If their cancer progresses, they can then have their prostates removed.
Almost no one agrees to such a plan. “Most men want it out,” Dr. Epstein said. But, still, the researchers have found about 450 men in the past four or five years who chose active surveillance. By contrast, 1,000 a year have their prostates removed at Johns Hopkins. From following those men who chose not to be treated, the investigators discovered that only about 20 percent to 30 percent of those small tumours progressed. And many that did progress still did not look particularly dangerous, although once the cancers started to grow the men had their prostates removed.

In Canada, researchers are doing a similar study with small kidney cancers, among the few cancers that are reported to regress occasionally, even when far advanced [as a result of white blood cells].

That was documented in a study, led by Dr. Gleave that compared an experimental treatment with a placebo in people with kidney cancer that had spread throughout their bodies.

As many as 6 percent who received a placebo had tumours that shrank or remained stable. The same thing happened in those who received the therapy, leading the researchers to conclude that the treatment [with out white blood cells] did not improve outcomes.[of course not!]

The big unknown is the natural history of many small kidney tumours, many of which are early kidney cancers. How often do small tumours progress? Do they ever disappear? Do they all need surgical excision? At what stage do most kidney cancers reach a point of no return?

These days, Dr. Gleave said, more patients are having ultrasound or CT scans for other reasons and learning that there is a small lump on one of their kidneys. In the United States, the “accepted practice” is to take those tumours out. But, he asks, “Is that always necessary?”

His university [University of British Columbia] is participating in a countrywide study of people with small kidney tumours, asking what happens when those tumours are routinely examined, with scans, to see if they grow. About 80 percent do not change or actually regress over the next three years [due in large part to the necrotic activity of white blood cells in the body with the dead cells being taken away and cast off by the body’s own waste system].

With early detection, he said, “our net has become so fine that we are pulling in small fish as well as big fish.” Now, he said, “we have to identify which small fish we can let go.”

Macklin Medical Mission - Cancer Vanishes without Treatment (1)

Where Cancer Disappears on its own due to White Blood Cells
[or, Cancer Cured by High IQ White Blood Cells]

In a new series on cancer we will be publishing a few articles that deal with the human body’s own self-defence mechanisms that are either triggered by foods high in anti-oxidants or simply by the body’s own innate self defence via the white blood cells themselves without any “boosting” from lab work with the aid of T-cell modifications. In other words white blood cells with a high-IQ. Hence the reason that cancer does not affect all of us “being less prone” as they say without some genetic weakness or proclivity in the family gene pool. So here we go.

Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article, entitled, `Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me:

"I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project, and we have accumulated a number of favourable case histories. Here are a few examples.

Case No. 1, man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumour had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971 he was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is back at his regular business routine.

Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by a skin specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.

I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives. Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening. Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.

The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink. As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth via the red blood cells. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer cells which are abnormal in the body and in acting as a natural general body necrotic on cells unknown to the red blood cells and as a tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance.

The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good." It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anti-carcinogens and anti-oxidants carried through the body via the white blood cells.
Its interesting that modern research into modified white blood cells with T-Cells to educate white blood cells to locate and recognize cancer cells for what they are is the path to go now. For some of us, this process is natural, for some of us, the white blood cells require a bio-nudge so to speak to kill the invasive cancer cells.
