The Real Truth about What Causes Cancer and Why Doctors Constantly Ignore It
In 1971 an unusual thing happened for the medical world. The Congress and President Nixon declared a kind of war on cancer. But nothing much important has happened during the four decades that passed after it. If we sideline all the hype and check the statistics, we will find that not much has happened.
We might imagine that if we apply the offerings of modern science in the last four decades, it could take us to something that can almost eradicate cancer. It will be good to compare development in cancer to other areas of technology. Look at our cell phones, they are more powerful and capable than the biggest supercomputers 40 years ago.
Cancer rates have grown over the last 40 years. In fact, cancer surpasses heart disease as the No.1 killer in America for the age group 45-74. There is a very high chance that someone in your circle is suffering from cancer, dying from it or has already died.
The War on Cancer – An Utter Failure
Reynold Spector notes these 6 reasons for this failure in the work he authored for the Skeptical Inquirer:
- We are yet unable to understand the pathogenesis or cause in most cancers.
- Most cancer treatments (apart from surgery) are not specific cell killers or ‘smart’
- The grant system and clinical trials don’t promote innovation
- Animal models of cancer are usually insufficient
- Screening drugs for fighting cancer cells has not been successful
- Ineffective ‘fads’ keep coming and going in research
Even though these factors show why the failure has occurred, this list tells exactly what could be wrong with this system. There is a general ignorance of the point that cancer could be nothing else but a man-made disease which is caused mainly because of toxic overload.
A little while ago, I authored an interesting study on ancient mummies and found that cancer doesn’t fall into the category of ‘natural’ diseases. Even genetics don’t form as the main factor. Tumors were very rare during those times. It is only in this era of poor diet and pollution that they have started emerging. What are the reasons the scientific and medical communities have mostly ignored such basic points?
The Underlying Causes Behind the Problem
Cancer rates are increasing because no one is making an attempt to address the underlying cause behind most cancers. On the other hand, most research is focused on costly drugs targeting late stages, enriching the drug companies, but not preventing cancer.
This is a field where even the smallest amount of prevention can be worth a lot as a cure. I have a strong belief that if you can follow the advanced health plan, you could almost eradicate the risk of developing most types of cancers.

What Causes Cancer?
The cancer epidemic is mostly claimed to be caused by our lifestyle and environmental factors. They include the following:
- Artificial & processed foods (and the chemicals that come with packaging)
- Exposure to pesticides and various chemicals
- Obesity, poor sleeping habits and stress
- Exposure to wireless technologies, medical diagnostic radiation, and dirty electricity
- Inadequate exposure to sunlight and using toxic sunscreens
- Pharmaceutical drugs
This is certainly a brief list on what causes cancer and an elaborate one will be too long. If you want to learn more about the consumer products which are considered to be contributing to cancer, kindly check the ‘Dirty Dozen’ list by the Cancer Prevention Coalition.
Pharmaceutical researchers want to show to the world what they are making every effort to find the solution. But we see nothing else but all the researchers taking place in developing new drug therapies. They are not getting anywhere close to the cause of the problem. Otherwise, they could learn about all these lifestyle problems mentioned above. I look at it this way – if you ignore your lifestyle factors, you are putting your own life at risk. It is obvious that drug-based ‘advances’ are going nowhere against this disease that is progressively advancing.
Cancer drugs, on the other hand, are infamously toxic and offer destructive and even deadly side effects. Those behind conventional medicine are working so hard to create the illusion that they are engaged in a fight against cancer. But many such drugs continue to be used despite not offering anything to extend the life or improve quality of life of people diagnosed with cancer.
Avastin was the best-selling (and too costly) cancer drug but it was stopped from usage for treating metastatic breast cancer after research showed that the benefits were almost nil compared to the hazardous side effects. It became clear that it was ignorant to treat a disease caused by toxins using toxins.
Genuine Cancer Advancements that Should Reach Public Domain
Over the past three decades, the cancer burden has increased two times across the world. It is expected to grow at same rate during 2000-2020. By 2030, it is likely to triple. This will happen if we don’t start taking cancer prevention more seriously. This trend can be reversed if the medical community no longer overlooks the methods that could have a major impact.
