Every doctor learned back in medical
school all about Otto Warburg's discovery; a discovery of humongous
proportions, because way back in the thirties Otto discovered the main
biochemical cause of cancer, or what differentiates a cancer cell from a
normal, healthy cell. So big a discovery was this, that Otto Warburg was
awarded the Nobel Prize.
Cancer has only one
prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the
body's cells by an anaerobic [i.e., oxygen-deficient] cell respiration.
-Dr. Otto Warburg
But what else does Warburg's discovery
tell us. First off, it tells us that cancer metabolizes much differently
than normal cells. Normal cells need oxygen. Cancer cells despise
oxygen. In fact, oxygen therapy is a favorite among many of the
alternative clinics we've researched.
Another thing this tells us is that
cancer metabolizes through a process of fermentation.
If you've ever made wine, you'll know
that fermentation requires sugar.
The metabolism of cancer is approximately
8 times greater than the metabolism of normal cells.
Okay, so here is what we can put together
knowing the above: The body is constantly overworked trying to feed this
cancer. The cancer is constantly on the verge starvation and thus
constantly asking the body to feed it. When the food supply is cut off,
the cancer begins to starve unless it can make the body produce sugar to
The wasting syndrome, cachexia, is the
body producing sugar from proteins (you heard it right, not from
carbohydrates or fats, but from proteins) in a process called
glycogenesis. This sugar feeds the cancer. The body finally dies of
starvation, trying to feed the cancer.
Now, knowing that one's cancer needs
sugar, does it make sense to feed it sugar? Does it make sense to have a
high carbohydrate diet?
The reason Food Therapies for cancer even
exist today (beyond the fact that they work) is because someone once saw
the connection between sugar and cancer. There are many food therapies,
but not a single one allows many foods high in carbohydrates and not a
single one allows sugars, BECAUSE SUGAR
Why doesn't your physician tell you this?
Hard to tell. Maybe your doctor feels it is his job to cure
your cancer, not yours. Maybe because your doctor learned about Warburg,
but never put the rest together, never placed nutrition into the
equation. Maybe because your physician didn't study nutrition. Heck, as
late as 1978, the AMA's official position (found in the Congressional
Record) was that nutrition had nothing to do with disease.
However, those who've paid attention to
this sugar craving cancer stuff have come up with some remarkable
therapies for cancer. Laetrile is just one. Hydrazine Sulfate, which
stops the process of glycogenesis in greater than 50% of all patients
with cachexia is another.
Today, at the University of Minnesota,
they are experimenting with a chemotherapy delivered in a "smartbomb."
Here's the scoop: the drug is wrapped in a coating that stays intact as
it travels through the body, that is until it reaches a location of no
oxygen. When it reaches this "no oxygen" location, the coating falls
apart releasing the chemotherapy to destroy the cancer, because the only
place in your body where there is no oxygen is the cancer site.
Then there are the food therapies: aimed
at starving cancer. Knowing what cancer loves, the patient avoids them.
Cancers loves cooked foods (this is a relatively recent finding) and
cancer loves sugar. If you hate your cancer, then starve it.
