Kids With Cancer Living Longer

news you may not knowSometimes Down is Good...

It's not great news - yet. Only news announcing the elimination of childhood cancer could be classified as great. But, while we move toward that goal, this news is certainly encouraging: kids with cancer are living longer.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the death rate for children with cancer declined sharply between 1990 and 2004. The overall decline was about 20%. The decline in death rates is not due to fewer cancer cases, as the number of new cases has remained stable. Rather, the decline is due to more effective treatments for a variety of childhood cancers.

One group that has not experienced the same level of decline is U.S. Hispanics. Their death rate has declined by only 1% per year, compared to the overall average of 1.7% per year. That's a significant difference. Officials say the problem for Hispanics is multi-faceted. They are less likely to have health insurance, have poorer access to care, and suffer from cultural and linguistic barriers. With the continued growth of the Hispanic population, this is an area requiring immediate attention.

So, the news is good. But, with over 2,000 children still dieing each year from cancer, the work is far from complete. Let's roll up those sleeves, pour some coffee and get to work - the children are counting on us.

Cancer has been cured for a long time, just not with Big Pharma drugs.

Various cancer types have been shown to be responsive to oral melatonin (10-50 mg daily), including breast cancer, non-small-cell lung cancer, metastatic renal cell carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, and brain metastases from solid tumors.

There are over 1100 medical journal articles about melatonin on PubMed.

You can type in melatonin melanoma, or melatonin prostrate, or melatonin pancreas, or many other cancers and see what researchers have to say about how melatonin will cure cancers.

If you take melatonin under the tongue, it goes strait to the blood stream. If you swallow it, the liver removes 75 % to 95%. You can read about it in: Melatonin : your body's natural wonder drug Reiter, Russel J. 1995. ISBN: 0553100173

The Hoxsey treatment was very successful, so successful it was run out of the U.S. and now can only be found in Mexico.

And pancreatic enzymes were used to cure cancer since 1968.
This book was prosecuted by the U.S. government for practicing medicine without a license. All copies were then burned.
Wobenzym is the preferred pancreatic enzyme.

Intravenous vitamin C has been used to cure cancer for quite a while.

Salvestrols are tumour-specific; when the salvestrol comes into contact with the tumour-specific enzyme the salvestrol is metabolized and turned into toxin within cancer cells which brings about ‘cell death’ (apoptosis) and, by this means, destroys the cancer cell(s). It is also claimed that salverstrols are only active in cancer cells and are very selective and non-toxic to healthy cells, but are highly potent and safe.
