Why is Chemo Toxic?

What Chemicals Are Used in Chemotherapy?

Have you ever thought about what makes chemo spills so DANGEROUS and why such CAUTION is used when addressing a simple spill?

It is because there are quite a few chemos which contain derivatives of mustard gas and other deadly toxins!

What is mustard gas?

Let's look to our governmental agency... the National Institute of Health (NIH) for some answers, shall we?

Mustard Gas

  • Sulfur mustard has been used in chemical warfare and was made in large amounts during World Wars I and II. It was reportedly used in the Iran-Iraq war in 1980-1988. (under: Title and Summary)

  • Mustard gas: known to be a human carcinogen. (under: Section 12.1.2Causes Cancer

  • The following can be found under: "safety and hazards"

  • H300 (100%): Fatal if swallowed [Danger Acute toxicity, oral]

  • H310 (100%): Fatal in contact with skin [Danger Acute toxicity, dermal]

  • H315 (100%): Causes skin irritation [Warning Skin corrosion/irritation]

  • H319 (100%): Causes serious eye irritation [Warning Serious eye damage/eye irritation]

  • H330 (100%): Fatal if inhaled [Danger Acute toxicity, inhalation]

  • H335 (100%): May cause respiratory irritation [Warning Specific target organ toxicity, single exposure; Respiratory tract irritation]

Warning: Mustard gas is extremely dangerous. Contact with the liquid or exposure to the vapor can cause blindness and severe burns. Mustard gas can also burn the soft tissue of the lungs and cause shortness of breath.

The Following is a List of Mustard Gas Derivatives
​Commonly used in Chemotherapy...​

​Nitrogen Mustards... A group of toxic chemicals developed for use as chemical-warfare agents. All of these chemo agents are from this group. All of these damage your DNA.

(NOTE: Doctors will not tell you, but all chemo agents raise the chance for other cancers. This is because it is so toxic it destroys the immune system. Orthodox medicine will not tell you that it is the immune system that heals you... not chemo.)

(NOTE: ALL cells are made in the bone marrow... Red (transport oxygen), White (fight infection), Platelets (help the blood clot), Macrophages (destroys pathogens including cancer and regulates/controls the immune system), etc. Once the bone marrow has been destroyed your life is not long for this world.)


"Treats only the 'symptoms' of cancer but does not treat the cancer itself."

    Prepare solution in a biologic cabinet. Wear gloves and safety glasses while handling medication. Discard equipment in designated containers​

  • High Alert: Fatalities have occurred with chemotherapeutic agents. Before administering, clarify all ambiguous orders; double check single, daily, and course-of-therapy dose limits; have second practitioner independently double-check original order, calculations, and infusion pump settings.


NOTE: Category "1" is the most toxic level - Category "2" is not as toxic and so on.

  • Toxic to reproduction: Category 1

NOTE: We will be exploring more chemo products in the near future. Needless to say, they are all toxic and have serious side effects.

Chemo for Bone and Other Cancers


All of these agents destroy your Immune System and consequently the quality of your life. Without your Immune System you will not win the battle against cancer or any other metabolic disease, regardless of the numbers the medical system "reports" as being "cured."

The bad thing about these "treatments" is that you signed an "informed" consent form to allow them administration of these toxic chemicals. Had you known then what you know now, would you have even darkened their doorways?

   * How in the world is putting toxic poisons designed for biological warfare going to help your Immune System get stronger?
​    * Did you know that chemo causes cancer? 
   * Did you know that chemo causes DEADLY 
Tumor Lysis Syndrome

 * How do you cure cancer with an agent that causes cancer and tumors?
   * Did you know that chemo destroys your bone marrow? (This is CRITICAL for life!)
   * Did you know that you can experience heart failure (even years later)?
   * Did you know that you can experience kidney failure?
   * Do you really believe that these toxic agents can help you win the battle against cancer? 



​If you have read our articles then you understand that the ONLY way to win this battle is to BUILD YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Please continue to read and explore our site because... "KNOWLEDGE is POWER!"

At Atlantis Health ReTreat we only offer natural therapies that build your Immune System. Most of our therapies deliver oxygen or nutrients to the cells and not toxic poisons. After all, the human body consists of 65% oxygen - all healthy cells require oxygen - a highly oxygenated body is considered alkaline which results in your Immune System becoming SUPER CHARGED. This is the only way you will ever truly stand a chance of being healed.

If you believe you have a medical emergency please see your physician immediately or dial 911.
