You should download our chemo questionnaire if you are about to do any chemo treatments.
In this document, you'll discover what questions you should ask your
oncologist before risking your life. The answers you will hear might shock you.
Simon: Chemotherapy is only 2.2% effective in reversing cancer. You're better off avoiding chemotherapy altogether if you want to prevent cancer.
In this episode, you will learn about the history of chemotherapy and how it started as a chemical weapon.
Then I will talk about how chemo works and why doctors need to use protective gear to handle it. And finally, I will mention common side effects of chemo and why we still use it even if it doesn't work.
Intro jingle: Welcome to the Cancer Wisdom podcast. This podcast teaches you how to treat cancer with natural remedies without using toxic treatments. Discover how to take charge of your health and not be a slave to Big Pharma medicine. Here's your host Simon Persson.
Simon: Chemo is an extremely toxic cancer treatment. If you look back in history, it's obvious why. Chemo's history started with a man called Fritz Haber. He was a professor at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany.
Haber was the brain behind mustard gas. Mustard gas is a thick, oily brown liquid that gives off a weak garlic or horseradish odor.This chemical weapon attacks all living cells that come into contact with it.
Haber created mustard gas with chemical dyes developed by the textile industry at the end of the 19th century. So the German army used mustard gas in World War I against the British and Canadian soldiers near Ypres, Belgium, in 1917. So up to 10,000 people died because of this chemical weapon, and many more were injured.
Soldiers absorbed the mustard gas through the skin, and their gas masks couldn't stop it. So when you are attacked by mustard gas, it creates blisters filled with yellow fluid. It can take up to six weeks to die from mustard gas.
The second step in the development of chemotherapy happened with two scientists. Louis Goodman and Alfred Gilman were two doctors at Yale University.
They looked at the medical records of soldiers affected by mustard gas and discovered that the soldiers had a low number of immune cells in their blood.
Goodman and Gilman observed that mustard gas could kill normal white blood cells. And then they wondered, what if you could use this chemical weapon to kill cancer cells? Then these two scientists looked for a human volunteer.
They wanted to know if they could use muscle gas as a cancer therapy. And finally, they found a patient with advanced lymphoma, only known today by his initials, JD.
So it's believed that this guy came from Poland. He had a massive tumor on his jaw that made it difficult to swallow or sleep. JD had his first injection of nitrogen mustard in 1942.
But the whole treatment was a secret. He received many treatments with nitrogen mustard, and after some treatments, JD was able to sleep, swallow and eat again. But sadly, he lost his life six months later.
But even after this disappointment, the development of chemotherapy continued. A guy called Alexander Haddow was a chemist that worked on a substance that could block cancer growth.
Because of Louis Goodman and Alfred Gilman, he found out that you could use mustard gas as a cancer treatment. That became a crucial starting point. In 1948 Haddow published his research in the journal Nature.
He showed that you could use nitrogen mustard molecules to kill cancer cells in rats. So his work launched that new era of chemotherapy. A former chemical weapon became the latest cancer treatment.
But despite advancements in cancer treatments, the survival rates of cancer didn't improve. By the early 1940s, cancer had become the second deadliest disease after heart disease.
Now I'm going to talk about how chemotherapy works. Chemotherapy treatments target fast-growing cells by using toxic drugs. There are several forms of chemotherapy drugs.
So you can take these drugs in pills, capsules, or liquid ingested orally. Other ways are through intravenous and intramuscular injections.
Doctors give you these drugs so that they can circulate throughout the body and kill cancer cells. There are dozens of chemotherapy drugs that doctors can prescribe. They're often divided into groups based on how they work.
Some drugs damage the DNA of cancer cells to keep them from making more copies of themselves. And other drugs prevent the enzymes that cancer cells need to grow.
The most common type of chemotherapy drug is alkylating agents. They are the oldest type of chemotherapy. Another type of chemo drug is an antimetabolite. They are chemo drugs that interfere with the normal metabolism of cells. The goal is to make cancer cells stop growing.
Anthracycline chemo drugs attack the enzymes inside cancer cells. These enzymes help cancer cells divide and grow, and these drugs prevent that. Another chemo drug is topoisomerase inhibitors. These drugs attack the enzymes that help cancer cells divide and grow.
Finally, the last chemo drug is mitotic inhibitors. These drugs stop cancer cells from making more copies of themselves. Their goal is to prevent the body from making the proteins that cancer cells need to grow.
So one massive problem with chemotherapy is that these drugs can't see the difference between cancer cells and healthy cells. They will kill both types of cells. It's like killing the weed in your garden by dropping a bomb on it and then destroying the whole garden.
Sometimes the chemo drug is only delivered to the area of the tumor through narrow tubes or other means. Patients may get several chemo drugs spread out across weeks or months.
Doctors are told to pressure new cancer patients to start chemotherapy after diagnosis. They treat cancer as an enemy that you have to kill immediately. Doctors use fear to make cancer patients use chemotherapy.
The toxic effects of chemotherapy have been known since their introduction in the 1940s. Various experts in the health industry have created recommended practices for handling chemotherapy.
In 1990, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists defined a drug as hazardous based on specific criteria. And in 2004, NIOSH expanded this definition.
This organization said that drugs with toxic properties could pose a health hazard to healthcare workers. The majority of hazardous drugs that we use today are anti-cancer chemotherapy agents.
Workers can be exposed to chemotherapy throughout its life cycle. It can start from the manufacturing of chemotherapy to the transport or distribution of it. Or doctors can be exposed to it in hospitals or when they dispose of it.
You can get exposed to chemotherapy through inhalation, orally, or through the skin. When you transport chemotherapy drugs from the manufacturer, it can sometimes lead to broken packages.
The employee must use specific precautions if they find a hazardous drug package that is damaged. Each hospital has a chemotherapy spill kit.
All staff must know how to perform a chemotherapy spill cleanup. The storage area of chemotherapy must have appropriate ventilation.
There should be at least 12 air changes per hour to reduce the drug residue in the air. The staff must also clean the storage area at least every 40 days with a detergent.
Many healthcare facilities will experience a chemo spill at some point. Chemotherapy drugs are extremely toxic to people. There's no safe chemotherapy exposure. In the chemotherapy spill kit, there are many things that keep the staff safe.
This kit contains two gloves, a gown, eye protection, a respirator, shoe covers, spill towels, two chemo waste bags, a chemo spill sign, absorbent pads or spill solidifier, a scoop and scraper, and a spill report form.
There are several steps that the staff needs to follow when there's a chemo spill. First, they need to alert the people in the area of the spill. When they find a chemo spill, they need to put out a sign warning about it.
After that, the person that discovers the chemo spill needs to put on the first pair of gloves, then the gown, followed by the second pair of gloves.
After that, they need to tuck the gown sleeves between the first and second pair of gloves. The next step is to put on the protective eyeglasses, followed by the respirator and shoe covers.
After they have done that, they need to use the absorbent pads or spill a solidifier on the spilled drug. If the person discovers any broken glass, he needs to use the scoop and scraper to pick it up. And then, he has to put it in the chemotherapy waste bag.
After he has put the glass inside the waste bag, he needs to use the spill towels, detergent, and water to clean up the rest of the chemo drugs and then place those things in the same waste bag.
After the cleanup, this person needs to remove the outer pair of gloves, the respirator safety glasses, shoe coverings, and gown and put it inside the same waste bag. Then they need to close the bag with the inner pair of gloves and put it inside the other waste bag.
The next step is to remove the second pair of gloves and place them inside the outer bag and seal it. Then they need to dispose of this waste bag properly and leave the warning sign in place until environmental services can clean up the area further.
What's interesting is that chemotherapy drugs are considered hazardous outside the body but not inside it. So how can we use this toxic drug inside the body when we need to use certain precautions outside it?
Chemo drugs and amalgam tooth fillings are considered toxic outside the body but not inside it. Amalgam tooth fillings contain about 50% mercury. The American Dental Association believes that most safe way to store mercury is through the mouth.
The second that you try to remove amalgam tooth fillings, there are strict regulations that you need to follow to dispose of the mercury. If dentists don't follow these rules, they can get huge fines.
Doctors treat chemo drugs as a dangerous health hazard outside the body but don't care if they put them inside patients. When people think about cancer, the most common image of a cancer patient is a guy without hair. Most of the side effects we associate with cancer are actually side effects of chemotherapy.
If you look at cancer patients that have refused chemotherapy, they don't develop the same side effects as cancer patients that use chemotherapy.
For example, the cancer blogger Chris Wark survived stage three colon cancer by using natural remedies. He only did some surgery on his colon but refused chemotherapy. And the interesting thing was that he never lost his hair.
Chemotherapy is toxic, whether you are already sick or healthy. Some doctors in the UK misdiagnosed a woman called Sarah Boyle. Doctors diagnosed her with triple-negative breast cancer in 2016. And months later, the hospital realized they had made a serious mistake.
But sadly, Sarah had already done a mastectomy and several rounds of chemotherapy. After she did some chemotherapy sessions, she lost her hair and had the usual side effects of chemotherapy.
This shows that cancer is not the cause of hair loss or other negative side effects of cancer. Most cancer patients feel fine when they are diagnosed with cancer, and they usually get worse when they start chemo.
Chemo kills cancer cells in the short term, but they also destroy healthy cells. So minor bodily infections that wouldn't cause any major problem before can lead to organ failure, internal bleeding, or death.
So more people die of chemo than of cancer itself. Some common side effects of chemo include vomiting and constipation.
I looked at a YouTuber, and before she used chemo pills, she was bubbly and happy. But every time she used chemo, she started to vomit and felt bad. Chemo can also lead to kidney malfunction, bleeding, and low platelet counts.
And before the patients can do any more chemo treatments, they need to fix this issue. Another common side effect of chemo is fatigue, and many cancer patients need to sleep for days before they recover from their treatments.
Infertility is another side effect that's quite common. Chemo also leads to organ damage and hair loss. And some people will also have a dry mouth or skin.
Chemo brain is another negative effect of chemo. The patient can feel really stupid after the treatment and have a hard time remembering stuff or understanding people. The most serious effect of chemotherapy is cancer.
The body uses cancer cells to deal with toxins, and because chemotherapy is an extremely toxic drug, the body needs to create more cancer cells to deal with it.
Using chemotherapy to treat cancer is like cleaning your house with more dirt or washing your dirty dishes by using more food waste.
The biggest study on chemotherapy happened in December 2004. In this Australian study, the scientists published a 14-year-long study of cancer patients.
The Northern Sydney Cancer Center examined the five-year survivor rates of chemotherapy patients. They looked at 22 types of cancers.
154 971 cancer patients were part of this study. The patients came from America and Australia. They were treated with conventional treatments such as radiotherapy, surgery, or chemotherapy.
The guys that created this study discovered that only about 3000 people could credit their survival to chemotherapy. Of the patients that survived more than five years, only 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the US could attribute it to chemotherapy.
The best results came from treating testicular cancer and Hodgkin's disease. But these types of cancers are usually easy to defeat. The success rate of testicular cancer was 41.8%, and Hodgkin's disease was 35.8%.
Some cancers had a 0% success rate with chemotherapy, such as pancreatic cancer, soft tissue sarcoma, or skin cancer. Bladder and kidney cancer also had a 0% success rate. The overall success rate of chemotherapy was only around 2%.
Would you go to someone that only had a 2% success rate? If you were an entrepreneur and wanted to hire a person and they only succeeded with their task in 2% of the cases, would you keep this person? You would immediately fire him. Or would you use a computer that failed 98% of the time?
So when people say how horrible cancer is, they never blame the drugs behind the side effects. It's actually the drugs that kill the patients, not cancer itself. Cancer doesn't have any weapons to kill anyone. It's only dangerous when it blocks a vital pathway, such as the lung or the colon.
It's the toxins behind cancer that kills the patient and not the cancer itself. Cancer is a survival mechanism of the body to protect you from toxins.
My first time experiencing chemotherapy happened in 1999. So, my friend, his dad, fainted one day in 1999 when his family finally found a permanent home.
At the hospital, they found out that he had a brain tumor. At first, they believed it was benign, but later they discovered that it was a malignant tumor.
The doctors gave him a very small chance to survive, and they ordered him to do some surgery and chemotherapy.
So this guy had a wife and four young children. The doctors first used surgery to remove his tumor.
And when I visited this guy, he had some big stitches on his head, and he had a problem talking. And later, he did some chemotherapy treatments. Every time I visited my friend, I was shocked by his dad's state.
He had problems forming words and speaking. And that was very shocking because prior to that, he worked at the university and was a very intelligent man. When professors had a mathematical problem, they often phoned him to get some help.
After this guy received some chemo treatments, his days consisted of lying on the sofa, and he was too weak to do anything. His wife had to assist him all the time. And there was one incident when he fell when his wife was away, and he had to spend the whole day on the floor until his wife returned.
And sadly, this guy died one year later after his toxic treatments. I remember this day because it happened on my sister's birthday. When I heard the news, I was sad, and I decided to visit the hospital the same day.
And it was the first time I saw a dead body. When I arrived at the hospital, his body was pale, and his neck was completely red from the collection of blood.
After I saw his body, I started to cry, and I thought about my friend and his siblings and how they would never see their dad anymore. I was told that cancer did all this, but I now know that the aggressive treatments caused his death, not cancer.
Why do doctors use chemotherapy and other toxic treatments if they don't work? Why force people to undergo toxic treatments that cause suffering and kill people?
Chemotherapy can, at best, only prolong people's lives for a couple of months, and during that time, they are usually too weak to do anything. So what's the point of this treatment?
After doing some research, I can only find two reasons why we still use chemotherapy. The first conclusion is that the cancer industry generates billions of dollars in profits each year. The costs of cancer care are staggering.
In 2018 cancer patients in the US paid $5.6 billion out of pocket for cancer treatments. These treatments included surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy drugs. Cancer treatments represent a significant part of the total US healthcare spending.
In 2015, the US spent $183 billion on cancer treatments. It is projected to grow to 246 billion by 2030. Cancer patients and their families often have to pay for these treatments. But they can also get help from their employers and insurance companies.
If you have good health insurance in the US, you can expect to pay around 10 to 15%. of chemo costs out of pocket. If you don't have insurance, you can expect to pay between $10,000 to $200,000 or more.
So that's a staggering amount of money. The second and real conclusion of why we still use chemo is that it's designed to harm people. It's evident if you look at the history of chemo, its side effects, and its horrible results.
Chemo started as a chemical weapon. A chemical weapon is designed to kill people. If we wanted people to heal, then why are we still using a chemical weapon?
The answer to this becomes evident if you look at the history of Western medicine. The medical industry that we have today is Rockefeller medicine. John D. Rockefeller was a greedy man responsible for creating Western medicine.
He was an oil billionaire that discovered that you could use oil to create drugs that suppressed people's symptoms but didn't heal the condition. He used his money to convince medical schools to teach allopathic medicine.
Allopathic medicine is when you treat illnesses with drugs. After his takeover of the medical industry, doctors started to use drugs to treat illnesses.
And the Rockefeller clan also used the American Medical Association, AMA to remove any natural doctors that wanted to heal cancer with natural remedies.
The Rockefeller family is also one of the biggest funders of the eugenics movement. Eugenics is the belief that the world is overpopulated and needs to shrink.
In episode six of this podcast, I talked more in detail about the Rockefeller family and their obsession with population control. So what better way to cull the population than using a toxic medical weapon?
If we look at the science behind chemotherapy, we should have banned it a long time ago. Any doctor that still utilizes chemotherapy should be thrown in jail for murder.
If you are about to do any chemo treatments, you should download our chemo questionnaire. In this document, you'll discover what questions you should ask your doctor before chemotherapy. I will provide a link to this guide in the show notes.
Thanks for listening to this episode, and I'll see you in the next one.
