Getting to the Root of the Problem

Cancer incidence is skyrocketing because the medical establishment is not addressing the underlying cause of most cancers. Most research is directed towards highly profitable drugs that target late stages of the disease and greatly enrich drug companies and universities, but simply do not prevent or for the most part cure cancer. The policies and priorities of the cancer establishment are narrowly fixated on damage control—diagnosis and treatment, not prevention.

However, if ever there was an area in which an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, it is cancer. Yet most Doctors ignore the fact that cancer is predominately a man-made disease caused primarily by chronic inflammation from toxic overload.

Like all revolutionary ideas, this challenges conventional belief (dogma) and we often see a knee jerk reaction from those who have an intellectual or financial investment in the status quo which includes berating or belittling us and our method in spite of our track record of success.

Our observations so enrage many zealots that they attempt to engage in ideological warfare without realizing that we are world-class researchers and clinicians.

There are legions who falsely claim that this theory of toxic overload is invalid and maintain their dogmatic ideas. They proudly state that cancer has been around since prehistoric times.

The evidence of prehistoric dinosaur cancer consists of a single fossil — a tumor petrified inside a bone.

Rates in Dinosaurs Compared with Modern Vertebrates
By: Rothschild et al.
“A total of 10,312 vertebrae from 708 individual dinosaurs of varying families were examined, and one such tumor was found. The malignant Edmontosaurus tumor is metastatic cancer of unknown (primary) origin.”

A single tumor…

The next argument is that ancient peoples got cancer and therefore this idea of toxic overload is without merit. Let’s examine the Neanderthals.

Pathological changes in the morphology of the young paleolithic skeletal remains from Stetten (south-west Germany). By: Prof., Dr. Alfred Czarnetzki, Ph.D.
In studies of thousands of bones that represent the fossil record of Neanderthal man in Europe, the Stetten II skull bone from Stetten, Germany, (c.35,000 years bp) provides the only example of a lesion (new bone formation) that might be related to a neoplasm — possibly a meningioma.

The “only example”…..

Let’s move forward in time to see how the disease progressed because tumors sometimes occured and were seen in ancient mummies. What is not mentoned however is how RARE an occurence cancer was!

Cancer: an old disease, a new disease or something in between?
By: A. Rosalie David & Michael R. Zimmerman
“a chronological assessment of the occurrence of cancer in early fossil, animal and human remains demonstrates the rarity of malignancies in antiquity…How old is cancer? Evidence of cancer in animal fossils, non-human primates and early humans is scarce. Scientific literature has provided a few dozen, mostly disputed, examples in animal fossils.”

On the Antiquity of Cancer: Evidence for Metastatic Carcinoma in a Young Man from Ancient Nubia (c. 1200BC) By: Binder et al.
“Cancer, one of the world’s leading causes of death today, remains almost absent relative to other pathological conditions, in the archaeological record, giving rise to the conclusion that the disease is mainly a product of modern living…To date, only around 200 skeletons and mummified individuals from around the world have been reported with different primary and secondary malignancies.”

So from the tens of thousands of remains from antiquity that have been analyzed, all we have is 200 or so incidents of cancer?! This demonstrates how extremely rare up until recent times cancer was, when pollution and poor diet became such significant issues. It must also be remembered that, in modern populations, tumours arising in bone primarily affect the young, so a similar pattern would be expected in ancient populations.

Yet it is noticeably absent…

Therefore, let’s look at the turn of the last century. Cancer statistics point to the subsequent advancements of industry, cigarettes, a chemically toxic environment and over-processed foods as cancer’s predominant root causes.

On the Alleged Increase of Cancer, By: George King and Arthur Newsholme
“During the last few years the minds of medical men and of the general public have been exercised over the rapid and striking increase in the mortality of cancer…That cancer has really increased in this country appears to be now generally assumed in medical circles.”

Journal of Cancer Research, (1917);2:267-365. On the Alleged Increase of Cancer
By: Walter Francis Willcox
“Is cancer mortality increasing? In nearly all parts of the civilized world the reported mortality is increasing rapidly…There is no denying that the figures make out a strong case for this conclusion, and that it cannot be rebutted by general statements about improvements in the diagnosis of cancer, or about the increasing proportion of the population consisting of elderly persons especially liable to cancer.”

An experimental study of mummification pertinent to the antiquity of cancer

By: Dr. Michael R. Zimmerman M.D., Ph.D.
“The virtual absence of malignancies in ancient tissues can only be interpreted as indicating their rarity or possible absence in antiquity. It has been estimated, on epidemiologic considerations, that up to 75% of human cancers are related to environmental factors. This study suggests that such factors are limited to modern industrialized society.”

1 in 25

In 1900, cancers were the eighth leading cause of death in the United States and accounted for one out of every 25 deaths. 12,769 Americas died of cancer in 1900. On average, for every 100,000 people in the U.S. population, 64 people died of cancer in 1900. Americans consumed about a half cup of sugar per person per year in 1900.

1 in 4

In 2013 cancers were the second leading cause of death in the United States and accounted for one out of every 4 deaths. 584,881 Americans died of cancer in 2013. On average, for every 100,000 people in the U.S. Population, 185.0 people died of cancer in 2013. Americans now consume on average a half cup of sugar per day.

There are those who say we’re making an “apples to oranges” comparison with the above facts. They claim cancer is a disease of older adults, and that people are living considerably longer now than they did in 1900, which is why the cancer rates have exploded.

In 1900 life expectancy was around 47 whereas today it is around 79. This does not mean that we are living three decades longer, but the inclusion of infant and child mortality rates in calculating life expectancy creates the mistaken impression that earlier generations died at a young age. Americans were not dropping dead left and right at age of 47 in 1900! Indeed in Victorian times if you made it to adulthood you would be expected to live a ‘normal’ length of time (65+). Therefore without the downward bias of high infant and child mortaility the average life expectancy has increased substantially.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, October 01, 1999 / 48(38);849-858
“At the beginning of the 20th century, for every 1000 live births, six to nine women in the United States died of pregnancy-related complications, and approximately 100 infants died before age 1 year.” That is 10%! Imagine what having so many infants dying does to the life expectancy tables?
“In 1900 in some U.S. cities, up to 30% of infants died before reaching their first birthday.” 1 it also states, “The decline in infant mortality is unparalleled by other mortality reduction this century. If turn-of-the-century infant death rates had continued, then an estimated 500,000 live-born infants during 1997 would have died before age 1 year; instead, 28,045 infants died.”

The mathematics behind the terminology “life expectancy” includes all ages of all live-born people in the population pool, including infants.
But it’s not just the significant reduction in infant deaths that skewed life expectancy tables, it’s also the massive reduction in

child mortality too.

2010- U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Child Mortality in the United States, 1935-2007
“Child mortality in the United States has declined dramatically over the past century. The mortality rate for children aged 1-4 years declined from 1,418.8 deaths per 100,000 population in 1907 to 28.6 in 2007. The mortality rate for children aged 5-14 years declined from 307.5 in 1907 to 15.3 in 2007. In 1900-1902, 90.2% of U.S. children aged 1 year survived to age 15, compared to 99.7% of children in 2007.”

IMR declined 2.3% to a record low 582.1 infant deaths per 100,000 live births in 2014 from 596.1 in 2013.


The modern cancer epidemic cannot be explained away on the basis of increasing longevity, because people really aren’t living significantly longer now than they did in 1900 once you understand the real data and the roles that infant and childhood mortality played. Besides, incidence and mortality rates are adjusted (age-standardized) in cancer registries to reflect this trend.

This clearly illutrates that Americans are living just single digit years longer after an entire century of “progress”.

What about the “progress” against cancer since 1900?

The facts simply cannot be ignored. As we “progress” as a society, our toxic burden becomes greater, which leads to higher incidences of cancer.

Increasing cancer rates also cannot be attributed to genetic factors, which are directly implicated in, at most, 10 percent of all cancers. Genetic susceptibility to cancer due to genetic polymorphism cannot have changed so dramatically over a few generations, and actually favours the role of exogenous factors through gene–environment interactions.

“Several genes that greatly increase a person’s chance of developing certain cancers (e.g., colon, breast, and ovary) have been identified. Only a very small percentage of people in the general population have abnormal copies of these genes. Cancers caused by these genes, known as familial cancers, account for only two to five percent of all cancers.”

Carcinogenic environmental exposure factors have been linked for over 50 years to up to 90% of human cancers 9-11, and the rarity of cancer in antiquity suggests that such factors are limited to societies that are affected by modern lifestyle issues such as tobacco use and pollution resulting from industrialization.12, 13

These days additional environmental and lifestyle factors are increasingly being pinpointed as the primary culprits fueling our cancer epidemic.

  • Processed and artificial foods (plus the chemicals in the packaging)
  • Wireless technologies, dirty electricity, and medical diagnostic radiation exposure
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Obesity, stress, and poor sleeping habits
  • Lack of sunshine exposure and use of sunscreens
  • Pesticide and other chemical exposures

Geography is also noted for playing a significant role in cancer.

U.S. President’s Cancer Panel, 2008-2009 annual report, “Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk: What We Can Do Now”, April 2010
“For example, Louisiana and Mississippi are known as “Cancer Alley” because of the more than 100 chemical plants and oil refineries in the area and the high concentration of poor populations with limited health care access. The cancer rate in Louisiana in 2005 was approximately 17 percent higher than the national average.”

Diet as a source of cancer

Many of the prominent hypotheses for effects of diet on cancer risk have been derived from examination of the associations between dietary patterns and cancer rates in different populations around the world. It was noted in the 1970s that developed Western countries have diets high in animal products, fat and sugar, and high rates of cancers of the colorectum, breast and prostate. In contrast, developing countries typically have diets based on one or two starchy staple foods, low intakes of animal products, fat and sugar, low rates of these “Western” cancers, and sometimes high rates of other types of cancer such as cancers of the oesophagus, stomach and liver.20

Other studies have shown that cancer rates often change in populations which migrate from one country to another, and change over time within countries. For example, the formerly low rates of colorectal cancer among Japanese people have increased both on migration to the USA and, more recently, with the increasing “Westernisation” of the diet in Japan. 21

If ethnicity were to play a significant role in determining cancer risk, then immigrants should retain the cancer incidence rates of their country of origin. Yet, immigrants to a new land acquire the cancer rates of their new home within one to two generations. 22-27

Nearly all countries heavily influenced by Western society have high incidences of cancer. Why is that? Most of the very prosperous have far higher incidences of cancer. Of the exceptions to this apparent rule (those which are prosperous but low incidence of cancer), the majority of these are non-Western-aligned countries—for example, Libya and Saudi Arabia.

WHO cancer map

It seems also that poor countries with high incidence of cancer are heavily aligned with the West. For example, New Caledonia and French Polynesia are both French.

How could prosperity and alignment with the West cause more cancer? Could the cancer rates be based upon what the majority of the population eats?

The 3 maps demonstrate Cancer incidence, Gross Domestic Product, and Gross National income. Notice the striking similarities between the two maps. Does this tell you something? The facts of cancer being a disease of modern living cannot be denied.

So why are the medical and science communities, by and large, ignoring these very basic facts on cancer causes?

The pharmaceutical researchers would like you to believe they’re doing everything they can to come up with a solution. Yet all we see is research into newer and pricier drug therapies. Clearly they’re not digging close enough to the root of the problem, because if they did, they’d touch on some of these lifestyle issues we mentioned.

From our perspective, you ignore lifestyle factors at your own peril when it comes to cancer… Because, clearly, drug-based “advances” are not making a dent in this increasingly prevalent disease.

On the contrary, cancer drugs are notoriously toxic and come with devastating, including lethal, side effects. Conventional medicine is so desperate to give the illusion of fighting the good fight that many of these drugs are used despite the fact that they’re not really doing anything to prolong or improve the quality of life of those diagnosed with cancer. Just today I consulted with a patient who just completed her 9th round of chemotherapy. HER 9TH! Her tumor is larger now than when she started!

The best-selling (and extremely expensive) cancer drug Avastin, for example, was recently phased out as a treatment for metastatic breast cancer after studies concluded its benefits were outweighed by its dangerous side effects. Treating a disease primarily caused by poisonous toxins with carcinogenic poisonous toxins seems pretty stupid to us.

“Modern Medicine” can and should do better than that.
