    This email was forwarded to me by my mother and has some interesting stuff in it.

    AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHN HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN
    ALTERNATIVE WAY .

    1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect
    the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

    2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

    3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

    4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

    5 To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system

    6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

    7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

    8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size . However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

    9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy andradiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

    10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

    11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

    CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

    a Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

    b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastrointestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being
    starved.

    c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growthhormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

    d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular
    levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eatsome raw vegetable s 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

    e. Avoid coffee, tea, a and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

    12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomeputrefied and leads to more toxic build-up.

    13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

    14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,ssiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's
    normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells

    15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, resentment, and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

    16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

    CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS HOSPITAL , U S A

    1. No plastic containers in micro.

    2. No water bottles in freezer.

    3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

    Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

    Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
    Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.
    Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

    Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

    This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.

    Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in t he paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

    Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt outof the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

    This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your
    life.

    although the tips seem good to me (not an avid user of microwaves or plastic), the above is considered a hoax and not from the Hopkins Institute.

    EMAIL HOAX REGARDING CANCER

    An email falsely attributed to Johns Hopkins describing properties of cancer cells and suggesting prevention strategies has begun circulating the Internet. Johns Hopkins did not publish the email, entitled "Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins," nor do we endorse its contents. For more information about cancer, please read the information on our web site or visit the National Cancer Institute's web site at www.cancer.gov.

    Another hoax email that has been circulating since 2004 regarding plastic containers, bottles, wrap claiming that heat releases dioxins which cause cancer also was not published by Johns Hopkins. More information.

    Hey sista Zul,

    I did notice how the email said John Hopkins rather than Johns Hopkins. Sometimes things that agree with what we already know will still use a source that is less than authentic. That doesn't negate what we know but it does show there's misinformation on both sides. A little common sense goes a long way. It really doesn't matter to me who said something or how much authority they have because I know balance is key and too much of anything just ain't good for ya. Since Johns Hopkins is a part of the same medical establishment that benefits off experiments on my ancestors, performed mississippi appendectomies on my foremothers and let Black men walk around with syphylis this disclaimer I take this disclaimer with a grain of salt. If it doesn't say Vidal Sassoon they're not vidal Sassoon Jeans. Humongously big deal. Anyway here is some more stuff I found:

    Free Radicals

    The cancer-mind connection
    http://curezone.com/diseases/cancer/cancer_body_mind.html

    It's not hard to see how the emotions effect the body. When we are sad our eyes water. When we are angry our blood pressure rises. when we are nervous we break out in a cold sweat. Studies show that when a person dies in an accident their blood is normal, but when they die in stressful situations such as war or in pain and feat their blood contains toxins. The same is true of animals who suffer toward death in modern farm factories. The negative emotions (e-motion=energy) they experience releases toxins into their bodies. Then we turn around and eat their bodies with all these toxins and negative energies.

    The effect of the emotions on the body is also recursive. Many of us have heard that it is dangerous to feed a wild cat meat with blood in it for it will make them vicious. How can blood flow through flesh and not leave toxins in the flesh even after you drain the blood? What we put in our bodies affects our mind as much as our minds affect our bodies. The body releases toxins through the digestive system, the skin and the mind. that's why certain foods cause our skin to break out in acne or other rashes, and often filth and disease in the body will manifest itself in filthy, sick thoughts.

    Meet your meant - This video is definately a red pill

    I'm not ready to see that clip! From the first second I was desperately looking for the stop button!!

    *deep breath*.. ~whew~ I'm just not ready for that red pill yet. :eek: :eek:

    Sister river,
    I agree wholeheartedly with what you have stated above. Mind & body connections:
    1. My dearest friend - a health nut vegan - was diagnosed with an agressive form of cancer, was told she would not leave the hospital again, even if she underwent extensive treatment.

    She said NO - got up and left - and is cancer 'free' today.

    2. My mother - definitely not a health nut - a hypochondriac all her life - was diagnosed and died within 18 months.

    I know we hear about 'miracles' all the time - But we also hear about "good" people dying young of illnesses, and "bad" people living forever - together with our genetic makeup, I agree - our own minds play a significant role in our health.

    I have been very naive, actually. Very. I have not really looked at it from another direction - how food effects our minds. The toxins we eat, and that body to mind connect (as opposed to mind to body)

    I'm glad you posted this - right time, right place (for me) The penny dropped. Still, I'm not going to watch the clip you posted ;) but I am going to make some changes.

    thanks
    :heart:

    The hoax was someone trying to help the public out. That stuff is true, which I why I sat here wondering why Johns Hopkins Cancer Center would release it. Organizations such as that are not in the business of curing. The people who claim to fighting against cancer are doing the opposite. I'm new to this site so I can't post links, but I just did an article about cancer you all should check out, and pass around if you like. Hopefully you can figure out where to go.
