Preventing Cancer with Vitamins A, Thiamine (TTFD), Niacin, Vitamin C and Sunshine (Vitamin D): A Rant
Vitamins are pretty ineffective against cancer. So are drugs. So is surgery. Cancer is generally the beginning of a slow and painful death. The ability of cancer to inspire dread is easy to understand.
I've had health problems my entire life. For decades, I thought having health problems was part of being human. I don't remember anyone telling me any differently. I had to become a parent before I wised up. I remember the day I was talking to one of my daughter's friends about health. I said "have you had this?", and "have you had that?" The revelation came when I thought to ask, "have you ever been sick?" and she said no.
Wow! Why didn't anyone ever tell me that the healthiest 10% of children are almost never sick? And why wasn't my relatively poor health a cause for alarm?
Poor health is an ordinary problem that often can be fixed. It's just a matter of clean air and water (and avoiding other toxins), nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction. Radical intervention clinics for the rich have proven beyond any doubt that heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension can be reversed in months. The most effective programs are located in a sunny environment. Rich folks with diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, etc. show up. They switch to a radical, vegetarian diet, exercise intensively, and spend lots of time outdoors. The relocation removes them from toxins in their former lives.
These extreme clinics have settled the debate about the genetic causes of these diseases. Genes surely contribute, but placed in the appropriate environment, most people will thrive with the genes they have.
I've know about these clinics since I started my own efforts to improve my health and the health of my children. For me, attending the clinics is an impossible dream. That said, I didn't see anything going on in those clinics that I couldn't find some way of controlling in my own life. In the end, a path to health emerged that is almost too good to be true. Antibiotics, vitamins, and sunshine are often sufficient.
I had my epiphany about health years ago. My epiphany about cancer is very recent. I was just staggered to realize that adults in excellent health are at least 10 times less likely to get cancer than adults in poor health. High blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, frequent colds, cavities, diabetes, poor mental health, arthritis, sleep disorders, and other common chronic health problems are all risk factors for cancer. All of these conditions are also now known to be reversible with sufficiently drastic changes in lifestyle. Treating with drugs instead of insisting on the lifestyle changes is causing cancer. To me, this means taking multiple drugs is often a prescription for a slow and painful death. And something like a third of senior citizens in America are taking three or more prescription medications!
If you or a loved one is taking one or more prescription medications, there is much to gain, and nothing to lose by giving my advice a try.
Here's my common sense strategy:
1) Kill nasty, sneaky, deceptive bacteria that are tough to kill by going after them with tetracycline type antibiotics prescribed by your physician. Just tell your physician you your joints hurt and you think you may have Lyme disease.
2) Boost your immune system and healing powers with vitamins.
Vitamin A - 10,000 IU per week (per week)
Enteric Coated TTFD (a special form of vitamin B1), 50 mg pills twice per week
1000 to 4000 mg of vitamin C every day
250 mg time release niacin pills, one or two per week (per week)
Regular sunshine in a bathing suit at noon to get ample vitamin D
Millions of Americans are dying a slow and painful death. This death starts with ordinary health problems. These health problems are treated with drugs, instead of by finding and fixing the root cause. As the years go by, the health problems and the number of drugs multiply. Then, surprise surprise, the dreaded day comes. The diagnosis is cancer. Now comes an avalanche of aggressive drugs and surgeries. Sometimes it works, more often the result is a slow and painful death.
Go ahead. Search for the cure to cancer. Fund more cancer research instead of basic public health and disease prevention. Find more drugs and surgeries instead of cleaning the air and ridding the soils of heavy metals pollutants (lead, mercury, arsenic, etc.). Then give more money to fund cancer research. Do anything except generally improve public health using antibiotics, sunshine, and readily available vitamin supplements.
