I came across this video while I was scanning through the Health section of Foxnews website, searching for cancer-related ones.
I have been collecting these information to support my relatives that are fighting cancers back home now.
It is an 8:39 minutes video from Arthel Neville’s interview with Dr. Raymond Francis on July 10, 2012.
No, I didn’t have any prior knowledge of the work of Dr. Francis (but in the book cover shown above is listed as Raymond Francis M.Sc.) However, I found the interview contains many useful information, which support what I have learned from Dr. Shu’s books and his other works. As some of you may have known, I have translated part of those materials and posted them both in my English blogs and lately in my bahasa Indonesia’s blog.
Dr. Francis said that historically, cancer was a rare disease. But today, cancer is a leading cause of death. After watching the video, I made a quick visit to American Cancer Society website and confirmed the numbers cited in the video, i.e.:
- About 1,638,910 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2012. This estimate does not include carcinoma in situ (noninvasive cancer) of any site except urinary bladder, and does not include basal and squamous cell skin cancers, which are not required to be reported to cancer registries.
- In 2012, about 577,190 Americans are expected to die of cancer, more than 1,500 people a day. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease, accounting for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths.
They surely didn’t explain, why did they have excluded some of the cancers from the list.
According to Dr. Francis, the following changes have transformed this rare disease to an epidemic, i.e., we have:
- created a cancer causing environment,
- lived a cancer causing life style, and
- we eat a cancer causing diet.
I have a bad news for my soda loving friends though. Out of the list to cut down cancer causes as well as what to do to change our life style choices, get off sugar in your diet is on top of the list on the video and is listed in the following order:
- Get off sugar
- Do not use processed oil
- Do not use wheat products
- Eat primarily plant base diet
- Include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in diet.
The reason is simple. Sugar is not only cause cancer, but it drives cancer since cancer cells eat sugar. No, this is not sugar in an apple or other fruits but refined sugar you will find in your soda, cakes and all the sweet stuffs including ketchup. Refined sugar is a metabolic poison. Please watch the video to listen to the rest of the explanation yourself.
The other thing I found after watching the video was that, Dr. Raymond Francis is the author of Never Fear Cancer Again (Aff) and a few other books. I just got my Kindle version of Never Fear Cancer Again and this is what he said about Medicine’s Misunderstanding of Cancer:
Medicine’s Misunderstanding of Cancer
Conventional medicine fails to appreciate that cancer is not a thing. Cancer is a process. When you have cancer, the problem is not confined to one area of the body: it is everywhere. It’s a systemic disease— a whole body problem. Abnormal metabolism sets the stage for cancer throughout the body. Doctors give different names and classifications to cancer. They try to remove or kill the cancer in your breast, prostate, or lung, but it’s like treating only muscle aches when somebody has the flu. The flu affects everything in your body, not just the muscles. Focusing on where the tumor is makes no sense, and it has proven to be a losing strategy. Cancer is not a thing you can cut, poison, or burn— it is a biological process affecting the entire body. To make cancer happen, you have to turn on a number of biological switches, and then you have to drive the process forward. Where the cancer shows up doesn’t matter. Cancer is cancer no matter what body part is involved. There is only one cancer— in fact, there is only one disease: malfunctioning cells. Removing body parts with surgery, poisoning your body with toxic chemicals, or destroying tissue with cancer-causing radiation will not solve your problem— the cancer will come back because the process is still operating. If you want to get rid of cancer, you have to turn the process off.
