More People Die from Chemo
Evidence Points to More People Dying
from Chemo Than Cancer Itself
Cancer is among the leading causes of death worldwide. In 2020, it is estimated there will be 1.8 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,520 cancer deaths in the United States alone. ~cancer.org
This is bad news.
However, what if you discovered that it isn’t the cancer killing people, but instead it is the chemotherapy killing people?
This would be even worse news (especially for those taking chemo).
Buckle up as we dig in to discover the truth.
For the first time ever, researchers looked at the numbers of cancer patients who died within 30 days of starting chemotherapy, which indicates that the medication is the cause of death, rather than cancer itself.
The research was conducted over the span of the entire year of 2014. 23,228 patients with breast cancer and 9,634 patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) underwent regression and trust-level analyses in this year-long research regarding deaths associated with chemotherapy.
The research took place in several hospitals (in the UK) to help provide a better understanding of how chemo affects patients. (Had this study been performed in the US, the results would have never seen the light of day.)
Up to 50%?
The research was conclusive… chemotherapy treatments kill up to 50% of cancer patients in some hospitals. The results of this research was published in one of the top peer-reviewed oncology journals… The Lancet Journal of Oncology It also appears on the NIH.gov site but they do not give you the report.
This news was so earth shattering that The Telegraph picked up the study and reported… Patients should be warned about the dangers of chemotherapy after research showed that cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some hospitals.” ~The Telegraph
NOTE: Keep in mind that these deaths occurred within the first 30 days.
Dr. Jem Rashbass, cancer lead for Public Health England (PHE) and one of the study’s authors stated… “Medicine is greatly informed by hindsight. No doctor tries to give medicine to their patient to kill them, but sometimes that balance goes the wrong way. I don’t see this as being bad practice . . . The easiest way not to kill your patients with chemotherapy is not to give it to anyone, and that is clearly wrong.”
WOW! It looked like Dr Rashbass was going to have a change of heart about administering chemotherapy to cancer patients until the comma.
Talk about being indoctrinated into the cancer industry! Even though the study he was involved with showed deadly outcomes for cancer patients treated with chemotherapy, he will continue in spite of the evidence proving… chemo kills.
Is it little wonder that Chemo Kills?
Chemotherapy is loaded with poisonous toxins.
In fact, (for some chemo drugs) the FDA has printed this WARNING…
..."Drug may suppress bone marrow function severely and is carcinogenic (causes cancer)
..."Drug causes infertility and is probably mutagenic and teratogenic."
Chemotherapy does not differentiate between healthy cells and cancerous cells… it just kills them all. Additionally, destroying the functionality of the bone marrow is going to further suppress the ability to recover from Cancer or any other disease. This is due to the fact that all new cells are produced in the bone marrow. Without new cells to fight the battle... where does this leave the cancer patient taking chemo?
Imagine… you put your trust and faith in a medical system that is not giving you full disclosure regarding the side effects of chemo. So without knowing that chemo causes cancer you opt for the treatments. After several treatments, your oncologist comes to your bedside and gives you even worse news than before you checked into the hospital… “I am sorry to inform you, but you have developed a second and possibly a third cancer.”
Of course, they still fail to fully inform you that it was the chemo that caused these additional cancers.
For those of you who have been treated with Chemo
or who are considering Chemo…
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo CAUSES DEATH?
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo CAUSES CANCER?
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo CAUSES DEADLY Tumor Lysis Syndrome?
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo destroys your DNA? (mutated genes are passed on)
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo DESTROYS your bone marrow? (This is CRITICAL for life!)
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo DESTROYS your immune system? (This is also CRITICAL for life.)
Did your oncologist WARN you that chemo is MUTAGENIC and TERATOGENIC (causes malformations and birth defects)?
Did your oncologist WARN you that you can experience HEART FAILURE (even years later)?
Did your oncologist WARN you that you can experience KIDNEY FAILURE?
Without WARNING you in advance, you are blindly entering into an agreement with the medical system giving them power to “treat” your cancer. Is this what you want(ed)? How do you cure cancer with an agent that causes CANCER and DEADLY TUMORS and CAUSES DEATH?
Chemo Contributes 2.1% to the 5-year Survival in Adults
There was another research paper published in the peer-reviewed National Institute of Health (NIH) in which the conclusion was… “The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA. . . it is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival. To justify the continued funding and availability of drugs used in cytotoxic chemotherapy, a rigorous evaluation of the cost-effectiveness and impact on quality of life is urgently required.” ~NIH.gov
Playing Chemo “Roulette”
Professor David Dodwell, a Consultant Clinical Oncologist based at Leeds Cancer Centre - Institute of Oncology St. James Hospital stated, “I think it’s important to make patients aware that there are potentially life-threatening downsides to chemotherapy. And doctors should be more careful about who they treat with chemotherapy.”
Dr. Glenn Warner (who died in 2000), was one of the most highly qualified cancer specialists in the United States. He has treated over 20,000 cancer patients in the past 40 years. Unfortunately, because he started using alternative treatments on his cancer patients (with great success) the medical board revoked his medical license. (They MUST eliminate all competition, you know.)
Regarding the treatment of cancer in this country Dr Warner stated, “We have a multi-billion dollar industry that is killing people, right and left, just for financial gain."
“Their idea of research is to see whether two doses of this poison is better than three doses of that poison.”
Just a quick question
How can either of these terms describing chemo ever be used…
1-Chemotherapeutic (nothing therapeutic about poisonous toxins)
2-Cytotoxic Chemotherapy (cytotoxic for sure – again nothing therapeutic)
There is nothing at all therapeutic about chemo as you have learned. It is however… cytotoxic (produces a toxic effect on all cells). Therefore, it should be considered… cytotoxic chemo.
I only point this out to make you aware that the medical system has even changed the definitions of words. This is because the medical system has leveraged the power of governments to protect them which allows them to do as they wish with little to no oversight. Certainly, it is clear… the medical system is broken.
88.3% of doctors agree...
We have just learned that chemo treatments not only fail miserably, but they are almost guaranteed to make cancer patients even more sick.
Would it surprise you to learn… that the same doctors recommending cytotoxic chemo (to patients when terminally ill) would refuse it themselves?
"Our data shows that 88.3% of doctors predominantly wish to forego high-intensity treatments (like chemotherapy) for themselves at the end of life..."
"When the patients' documented Advanced Directive (living will) wishes are in conflict with the doctor's clinical "opinion" about what is best for the patient, doctors may override patient autonomy in favor of doing what they (the doctors) perceive as beneficial to the patient.”
“More than 80% of patients say that they wish to avoid hospitalizations and high intensity care at the end-of-life, but their wishes are often overridden [by god – oops the doctor].” ~NIH.gov
Oncologists Profit from Selling Chemo Drugs
Have you ever heard the phrase “Pay to Play?” This is exactly what happens in the world of oncology.
Did you know oncologists actually receive compensation for chemo drugs?
Did you know the amount of compensation changes from one drug mfg. to another?
With one drug offering a better markup – do you suppose it’s possible that you got the drug with the higher markup? Or did you get the drug that was better suited for your cancer? (Not that any of them are, but you know what I mean.)
"Cancer docs Profit from Chemotherapy drugs
Situation begs the question: Are they overprescribing?"
This is the headline for an article that appeared on NBC News.
"The significant amount of our revenue comes from the profit, if you will, that we make from selling the drugs," says Dr. Peter Eisenberg, a private physician who specializes in cancer treatment.
“Doctors in other specialties simply write prescriptions. But oncologists make most of their income by buying drugs wholesale and selling them to patients at marked-up prices.
"So the pressure is frankly on to make money by selling medications (Chemo)," says Eisenberg. ~NBC News
"Drug Sales Bring Huge Profits, And Scrutiny, to Cancer Doctors"
Here is yet another article documenting the fact that oncologists make huge profits from Chemo drugs.
“Among cancer doctors, it is called the chemotherapy concession. At a time when overall spending on prescription drugs is soaring, cancer specialists are pocketing hundreds of millions of dollars each year by selling drugs to patients - a practice that almost no other doctors follow.”
“The cancer specialists can make huge sums - often the majority of their practice revenue - from the difference between what they pay for the drugs (buying them wholesale) and what they charge insurers and government programs.”
The article goes on to say… “The practice also creates a potential conflict of interest for these doctors, who must help patients decide whether to undergo or continue chemotherapy if it is not proving to be effective, and which drugs to use.” ~New York Times
The difference between wholesale and retail is QUITE substantial – often times netting the doctor a huge sum of money on each treatment. No wonder chemo is being abused. It is the largest revenue stream of an oncologist’s practice.
Now couple these incentives with the fact that the doctor can override you and your wishes for treatment. Is it possible that many are being treated unnecessarily so the doctor can further profit? This makes me feel VERY uncomfortable learning the truth. How about you?
"Multimillionaire doctor who plunged hundreds of patients into bankruptcy by falsely diagnosing cancer and giving them unnecessary chemo is jailed for 45 YEARS"
“While Dr. Fata told healthy patients they were sick, he sold false hope to the terminally ill in an effort to convince them to keep buying treatments that would not extend their lives, authorities charged.” ~NBC News
“According to the government, Fata had a patient load of 1,200 people and received $62 million from Medicare; he billed for more than $150 million.” ~USA Today WOW... $62 million for this one doctor's clinics. Did you have any idea the chemo industry was so lucrative? Just try telling your oncologists that you don't think chemo is safe. He will either argue or show you the door.
“Fata forfeited $17.6 million that he collected from Medicare and private insurance companies. Some 553 patients received medically unnecessary infusions or injections, prosecutors said.”
One man was reported saying… "I gave full and total trust to this man to get me and my family through this journey I was about to begin." ~CNN News
As mentioned previously, oncologists have a very unique situation when it comes to being compensated for the administration of chemo. They buy it wholesale - sell it retail - and pocket the profit. The money is so substantial – and the temptation so great - that it is hard for a good man to stay honest.
Charlie Munger (vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway) understands how loud money screams when he stated…“Show me the incentive and I’ll show you the outcome”.
In the world of “Pay to Play”…
Oncologist authors “researching” cancer drugs have a financial conflict of interest (FCOI), because they are paid by the drug manufacturers. The incentives range from funding research to larger grants and may even include stock ownership. ~NIH.gov full text here...
SLOAN KETTERING’S CRISIS
"Top Cancer Researcher Fails to Disclose Corporate Financial Ties in Major Research Journals
"A senior official at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has received millions of dollars in payments from companies that are involved in medical research. His omissions expose how weakly conflict-of-interest rules are enforced by journals.
"One of the world’s top breast cancer doctors failed to disclose millions of dollars in payments from drug and health care companies in recent years, omitting his financial ties from dozens of research articles in prestigious publications like The New England Journal of Medicine and the Lancet. NOTE: His research is also found on the National Institute of Health (NIH.gov)
"The researcher, Dr. José Baselga, a towering figure in the cancer world, is the chief medical officer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He has held board memberships or advisory roles with Roche and Bristol-Myers Squibb, among other corporations; has had a stake in start-ups testing cancer therapies; and played a key role in the development of breakthrough drugs that have revolutionized treatments for breast cancer.
"According to an analysis by ProPublica and The New York Times, Baselga did not follow financial disclosure rules set by the American Association for Cancer Research when he was president of the group. He also left out payments he received from companies connected to cancer research in his articles published in the group’s journal, Cancer Discovery. At the same time, he has been one of the journal’s two editors in chief.
"At a conference this year and before analysts in 2017, he put a positive spin on the results of two Roche-sponsored clinical trials that many others considered disappointments, without disclosing his relationship to the company. Since 2014, he has received more than $3 million from Roche in consulting fees and for his stake in a company it acquired.
Baselga did not dispute his relationships with at least a dozen companies. In an interview, he said the disclosure lapses were unintentional." ~ProPublica
This is a true nightmare for those with cancer as you find yourself dependent upon an industry who is more interested in money than they are your very life. This story is so mind bending that I thought you may want to explore what the NY Times has to say about this hypocrisy.
The New York Times and ProPublica reported that Sloan Kettering's (one of the top cancer institutes)... "chief medical officer, Dr. José Baselga, had been paid millions by drug and health care companies and failed to disclose (probably just an oversight) those ties more than 100 times in medical journals, and that hospital insiders had made lucrative side deals that stood to earn them handsome profits, sometimes for work they had done on the job. Twelve doctors and researchers at the hospital served on the boards of publicly traded pharmaceutical companies including the hospital’s chief executive, Dr. Craig B. Thompson (also a "respected" cancer researcher). When Dr. Thompson was caught with his hand in the cookie jar he resigned from the boards of the pharmaceutical giant Merck and Charles River Laboratories, a health care company, that together had paid him $585,050 in compensation in 2017. The compensation for the two corporate boards is in addition to what he is paid as chief executive at Memorial Sloan Kettering, the nonprofit institution that is one of the nation’s leading cancer centers. In 2016, he received $6.7 million in total compensation from the hospital and related organizations, according to the most recent Internal Revenue Service filings.
WOW! $6 Million is not enough for Dr. Thompson to feed his family. So he goes against everything ethical and aligns himself with the pharmaceutical companies so he can make more money by possibly slanting the research he was paid to perform by these and possibly even other companies.
From “researching” chemo drugs – to prescribing high profit chemo drugs – the game is rigged against you (the cancer patient). The medical system sounds a bit like Jerry Maguire (the movie)... "Show me the Money!"
There is no doubt that the medical system must continue this sham of chemo being beneficial, because cancer business is big business and big profits are necessary to support the cancer industry. At nearly $200 Billion annually, the cancer industry comes in at #51 when measured against the GDP of the world’s 186 countries. You might want to look for yourself at the countries whose GDP comes in under 200 Billion Dollars annually.
