Why Do Most People Believe That Cancer Is A Disease?

Everyone has the capacity to heal themselves

There is no cancer that has not been survived by someone, regardless of how far advanced it was. If even one person has succeeded in healing his cancer, there must be a mechanism for it, just as there is a mechanism for creating cancer. Every person on the planet has the capacity to do both. If you have been diagnosed with cancer, you may not be able to change the diagnosis, but it is certainly in your power to alter the destructive consequences that it (the diagnosis) may have on you. The way you perceive the cancer and the steps you choose to take following the diagnosis are some of the most powerful determinants of your future wellness, or the lack of it.

90-95 percent of all cancers appear and disappear of their own accord

The indiscriminate reference to cancer as a ‘killer disease’ by professionals and lay people alike has turned cancer into a disorder with tragic consequences for the majority of today’s cancer patients and their families. Cancer has become synonymous with extraordinary suffering, pain, and death. This perception continues despite the fact that 90-95 percent of all cancers appear and disappear of their own accord. Not a day passes without the body making millions of cancer cells. Some people, under severe temporary stress, make more cancer cells than usual and form clusters of cancerous cells that disappear again once they feel better.

According to medical research, secretions of the DNA’s powerful anticancer drug, Interleukin II, drop under physical and mental duress and increase again when the person becomes relaxed and joyful. Low secretions of Interleukin II increase the incidence of cancer in the body. However, people are generally not under severe stress all the time. Therefore, most cancers vanish without any form of medical intervention and without causing any real harm. Right at this moment, millions of people are walking around with cancers in their body without having a clue that they have them. Likewise, millions of people heal their cancers without even knowing it. Overall, there are many more spontaneous remissions of cancer than there are diagnosed and treated cancers.

Cancer treatments do more harm than good

The truth is, relatively few cancers actually become ‘terminal’ or are even detected. The vast majority of cancers remain undiagnosed and are not found until autopsy. Typically, these people don’t die because of cancer. They don’t even have symptoms that could prompt the doctor to prescribe any of the standard cancer-detecting tests. It should raise everyone’s eyebrows that 30-40 times as many cases of thyroid, pancreatic, and prostate cancer are found in autopsy than are detected by doctors. The British medical journal Lancet published a study in 1993 that showed early screening often leads to unnecessary treatment. The reason for that? Although 33 percent of autopsies reveal prostate cancer, only 1 percent die from it. After age 75, half of the males may have prostate cancer, but only 2 percent die from it. New official recommendations (August 2008) call for oncologists to no longer treat men with prostate cancer past the age of 75 years because the treatments do more harm than good and offer no advantages over no treatment at all.

It must be noted that these low mortality rates only apply to those who have neither been diagnosed with cancer nor received any treatment for cancer. Mortality rates, however, increase drastically if cancers are being diagnosed and treated, which clearly shows what does the killing. Once diagnosed, the vast majority of cancers are never given a chance to disappear on their own. They are promptly targeted with an arsenal of deadly weapons such as chemotherapy drugs, radiation, and the surgical knife. ‘Sleeping’ tumors that would never really cause much harm to the body, may now be aroused into powerful defensive reactions and become aggressive, not unlike relatively harmless bacteria that turn into dangerous superbugs when attacked by antibiotic medication. It makes absolutely no sense that at a time when you need to strengthen the body’s most important healing system – the immune system – you would subject yourself to radical treatments that actually weaken or destroy the immune system.

The problem with cancer patients is that, terrified by the diagnosis, they submit their bodies to these cutting/burning/poisoning procedures that, more likely than not, will lead them more rapidly to the day of final sentencing: “We have to tell you with our deepest regret that there is nothing more that can be done to help you.”

The most pressing question is not, “How advanced or dangerous is my cancer?” but, “What am I doing or not doing that puts my body into a situation of having to fight for its life?” Why do some people go through cancer as if it were the flu? Are they just lucky, or is there a mechanism at work that triggers the healing? On the contrary, what is the hidden element that prevents the body from healing cancer naturally, that makes cancer so dangerous, if indeed it is dangerous at all?

People believe cancer is a vicious killer

The answers to all these queries lie with the person who has the cancer, and does not depend on the degree of a particular cancer’s ‘viciousness’ or the advanced stage to which it appears to have progressed. Do you believe that cancer is a disease? You will most likely answer, “Yes,” given the ‘informed’ opinion that the medical industry and mass media have fed to the masses for many decades. Yet, the more important but rarely asked question remains, “Why do you think cancer is a disease?” You may answer, “Because I know cancer kills people every day.” I would then question you further, “How do you know that it is the cancer that kills people?” You would probably argue that most people who have cancer die, so obviously it must be the cancer that kills them. Besides, you may reason, all the expert doctors tell us so.

Let me ask you another question, a rather strange one: “How do you know for sure that you are the daughter/son of your father and not of another man?” Is it because your mother told you so? What makes you think that your mother told you the truth? Probably because you believe her; and you have no reason not to. After all, she is your mother, and mothers do not lie about these things. Or do they? Although you will never really know with absolute certainty that the person you believe to be your father is, in fact, your father, you nevertheless have turned what you subjectively believe into something that you ‘know’, into an irrefutable truth.

Although no scientific proof whatsoever exists to show that cancer is a disease (versus a healing attempt), most people will insist that it is a disease because this is what they have been told to believe. Yet this belief is only hearsay based on other people’s opinions. These other people heard the same ‘truth’ from someone else. Eventually, the infallible doctrine that cancer is a disease can be traced to some doctors who expressed their subjective feelings or beliefs about what they had observed and published them in some review articles or medical reports. Other doctors agreed with their opinion, and before long, it became a ‘well-established fact’ that cancer is a vicious illness that somehow gets hold of people in order to kill them. However, the truth of the matter may actually be quite different and more rational and scientific than that.
