Alternative media site exposes the deadly effects of chemotherapy
(NaturalNews) Chemotherapy is a poison that is responsible for many alleged cancer deaths, claims the website Chemo Kills
The website – presented as an information portal about the dangers of chemotherapy, the effectiveness of alternative cancer treatments, and the corruption of the U.S. and especially British government systems that promote the former over the latter – claims that oncologists regularly tell cancer patients two lies. The first is, "You'll be dead in x months if you don't take chemotherapy." The second is that chemotherapy is the only treatment option, even though, the site claims, "there are a dozen options, the worst of which is chemotherapy."
"With these lies they murder an estimated one million a year for profit."
Chemo kills one million a year
According to the site, chemotherapy has its origins in the World War I-era chemical weapon mustard gas. Its side effects — which can be permanent — can include loss of sight, loss of the ability to walk, and even cognitive damage known as "chemo brain."Chemo Kills
points out that when people die of chemotherapy-related side effects, those deaths are reported as cancer deaths, not as prescription drug deaths. Yet chemotherapy and other prescription drugs are known to injure at least 10 million people a year, the site says.
Given that prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and injure 2 million people a year in this country alone (these numbers do not include chemotherapy), Chemo Kills
estimates that 1 million people are killed by chemotherapy each year, more than 10 percent of the 8.7 million "cancer" deaths annually. The site claims that in wealthy countries, fully half of all "cancer" deaths are actually caused by chemotherapy.
It's not just the side effects of chemo that cause all this devastation, the site says. It's that chemotherapy does not work at killing cancer, and can often actually make the cancer worse. That's why chemotherapy deaths are so easily attributed to cancer.Chemo Kills
cites a Scientific American study by John Cairns of Harvard University, which found that chemotherapy helps only about 5 percent of patients. It also cites a 2004 study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology
, which found that chemotherapy helped only 2.3 percent of patients.
Therefore "chemo was destructive in 97.7% of cases," the site concludes.
Why is chemotherapy so harmful? According to Chemo Kills
, it's because chemotherapy devastates patients' immune systems, making them highly susceptible to opportunistic infections (much like an AIDS patient). Many chemotherapy drugs are also listed as "known carcinogens."Chemo Kills
also quotes Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, who in "The Emperor of All Maladies" writes, "When chemotherapy (is given) to kill the bulk of your cancer cells, a small remnant of these stem cells regenerate and renew the cancer, too."
This is particularly ominous when combined with the ability of tumors to develop "chemotherapy resistance."
"Yes, chemo may shrink a tumour, but it makes the cancer come back stronger," the site reads. "In particular it usually creates the secondaries that kill you 2 years later."
Suppressing alternative therapiesChemo Kills
also has a page devoted to listing alternative cancer treatments that it claims are side effect free, and more effective than chemotherapy to boot.
But these safe and effective treatments have been suppressed, the site alleges, by laws written to favor the chemotherapy industry, which rakes in $200 billion per year. And it's no wonder. According to the site, the average cost of a single round of chemotherapy is $60,000.
The site particularly takes aim at the United Kingdom's 1939 Cancer Act, which to this day prohibits the promotion of any "advertisement" (which includes any written material or speech), that contains "an offer to treat any person for cancer, or to prescribe any remedy therefor, or to give any advice in connection with the treatment thereof."
