    Do YOU think Cancer is an Epidemic? WHY? OR is it just being caught earlier?

    AND do you think it's possible doing nothing in a lot of cancers is just as good as doing something?

      Just my own opinion, based on my many years of having cancer and studying what I needed to know about my own situation.

      So first, technology is so much better now than 27 years ago when I was first diagnosed, and new diagnostic tools are available it allows much finer tests to be done, and more cases are caught earlier than before. So more cases are being caught than used to be. This can only make it seem that there is more cancer than used to be. Good or Bad? It depends on if you are the one who's case was caught early and something was able to be done for you.

      Do nothing or do something? In my case, 27 years ago, in both cases if I would have done nothing I probably wouldn't have made it a year. 7 years ago, I was stage III and with a serious type with poor prognosis, so doing nothing I'm pretty sure wouldn't have been good.

      For my Mom, she was diagnosed Stage IV and told she might make it 6 months, with or without treatment. We let Mom make the decision, and I agreed it was better to just let it be and enjoy life however long it may be. It was 10 months.

      For my Dad, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer about 13 years before it metastasized and spread all over. He wouldn't take any of the medicine that was prescribed for him to keep it in check, and he wouldn't agree to any surgery. So, the cancer just took it's course in the time it wanted to. If he would have taken the drugs he may still be with us. That one is just a guess.

      So, it's a personal choice, and what may be good for you, may not be good for the next person. And of course it depends on the type of cancer, the personal situation.

      Working in the cancer field and knowing biologically how cancer starts it is my opinion that everyone will get cancer if they live long enough. And those 110 year olds just haven't lived long enough. I think that people sometimes self sabotage by smoking as well as other carcinogens (charcoal grilling, living in a polluted area, flying, eating unhealthy, and even some medications). I have seen patients who forgo western treatment for a snake oil cure or healthy eating. When they do come back for treatment they are in pain and late stages. There are always a few successes where the cancer spontaneously goes into remission but they are by no means the majority. So yes it is an epidemic but the survival rate is better because of better technology and early diagnosis. But I also believe that everyone is focusing on the wrong part of disease. Everyone is searching for a cure but no one is searching for the cause so it can be prevented. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

      I do not think there is an epidemic. I do think it is diagnosed earlier now, at least in some cases. If I had decided to treat myself, I likely wouldn't have made it 6 months. Some slower growing cancers may be okay to take a wait and see attitude. Or, if there isn't a whole lot of hope, no matter what, forgoing treatment is a decision the patient might make. I always said I wanted Quality of life over Quantity. I think I still believe that.

      I think cancer has been around since the beginning of time. I do think environmental problems have dramatically increased its incidence.

      I have spent some time trying to find the answer to that question. I still don't have an answer. My family has had more than our fair share. The best guess I have is part inherent and part environment. My family lived in the mist of the corn belt surrounded by farms. One possibility is the exposure to pesticides. There are many families that still reside there with little or no cancer.I thought must be genetic plus the pesticides,since all of our cancers are totally different types. As adults we moved in all different directions, so the common thread is the farms in our younger years. My siblings and I were diagnosed in our 40's and 50's, yet my mother was first diagnosed at the age of 85. She moved to farm country as an adult. We eat relatively healthy and live nomal lives. These are just my thoughts on the subject.

      I Wonder IF it's more a problem with our immune system in a particular organ. Genetic mistakes happen ALL THE TIME and we always have beginning cancer cells BUT our Immune system controls it.....SO maybe it's NOT the disease but our natural ability to control a normal thing that happens in our body. I had a friend that had this little sore on his arm for years and never went to a doctor....Said it was just a little crusty thing but never bothered him....never got larger or anything unusual. His wife saw it and made him go to the Doctor. The Doctor biopsied it and said it was stage 3 melanoma. Did surgery, chemo etc. and he died in six months. Not sure exactly what the moral of that story but it is weird.....I don't think Society and The Government is treating it like an epidemic......Cancer seems to be just a way of life these days....Seems weird.

      I think a lot of it is mass deception.

      I knew there was something wrong (but I did not know what to do about it) for 13 years, until I got a diagnosis. That doesn't seem like early detection to me. Maybe what is meant as early detection is earlier detection when compared to 102 years ago?

      I believe cancer is like a five alarm fire - it takes a while to build, for the most part.

      Doing nothing is rarely of benefit when one speaks of disease. For as long as mankind has been on the planet, there have been foods and herbs as medicine. It was relatively recently that Hippocrates mentioned it. It is less than a relative blink of an eye that what is termed 'conventional' medicine has been on the scene.

      Someone asked a question about frankincense and I discovered that it, like myrrth, was prized for its abilities to stop cancer growth and promote cancer death (among other things) back in the Common Era and prior and western medicine is just getting around to studying it. Did they wipe a slate clean? One new study showed it stopped cancer growth, put cancer 6 feet under, and prevented healthy cell death all at the same time..There are peer reviewed studies showing nigella sativa (black cumin seed) does shrink tumors (in vivo) among other things.

      Almost nobody has smallpox. A preventative measure was developed. It was gone in less than a generation.

      Almost nobody has polio any more. A preventative measure was developed. It was gone in less than a generation.

      What is all this hogwash about cancer cure when it is obviously the preventative measure(s) which need to be developed? The American Cancer Society has been looking for a cure since 1913. http://www.cancer.org/aboutus/whoweare/our-history

      Right after WW II they had a successful campaign "In 1946, philanthropist Mary Lasker and her colleagues met this challenge, helping to raise more than $4 million for the Society – $1 million of which was used to establish and fund the Society’s groundbreaking research program..." so my question is where did the other 3 million go?

      Anyways, I'm not angry or anything. It was an idea. Better than nothing. But it hasn't worked in 5 going on 6 generations so it is time to do something else, perhaps look for a cause to prevent rather than a cure, yes?

      Diagnosing earlier will only increase the numbers for a short period of time because the person would have been counted later if diagnosed later.
      I think we are seeing an increase and it will get worse due to environmental factors. We no longer have clean air and water. And our food is awful. The lining of cans for canned food is carcinogenic. I recently read that 70% of canned tuna is not tuna but something called escolar which can cause fatigue, digestive problems and other symptoms. Pesticides are associated with lymphoma which has had a greater than 70% increase since the mid 70s. And I am not convinced that GMOs are safe. I think all of this and more has increased the rate of cancer.

      My friend's mother had breast cancer and didn't say or do anything. Finally, she went to the doctor (in pain). She was stage IV, but the doctors told my friend that her mother had probably had the cancer for 10 years and she was 73 when she passed away. I have to think even with treatment, she might not have lasted any longer.

      OK folks lets do a little experiment here. Dig out your birth certificate, look at the signature on the bottom, You are looking at your death warrant. Birth is fatal. In my area cancer had been epidemic for over half a century. The area was first subject to radioactive fall-out from the Nevada testing grounds, pesticides and now drinking water pollution from CAFOs.
      That being said, polluting the planet did not start in the 19th century. Mankind has been polluting the planet for a long time. The mining and refining practices of the Hittites were definitely not eco-friendly. I believe it was the Romans that ate off pewter utensils. The English tanners really messed up the rivers. In the 20th century the thinning of the Ozone layer, I believe, is the cause of increased skin cancer (and who knows what other cancers)
      Keeping healthy is becoming more and more expensive. Organic food is very expensive. Range feed meat and dairy is beyond most peoples budget.
      As for the question is it better to do nothing or to do something or to do everything. I believe that should be up to the individual unfortunately. Unfortunately I believe that the individual has little to say about it. When the Dr. wants to give up he trots you off to hospice.
      My personal idea of the definition of quality of life is if you are breathing your quality of life is good and if your body is six feet under and you are further down than that your quality of life is BAD. So I want to live as long as I can.

      They used to list lots of things as a natural death---and They seldom did autopsies at all. The exception was a possible homicide. We used to say, "Boo Hoo! My poor auntie died." But without an autopsy, who really knew what auntie died from. In my opinion we don't have enough information to even guess. General Grant had a visible cancer-so they knew it was cancer, but how many have a visible cancer?

      But it is all one or two diseases (tissue or blood) so the lobbying groups need to combine into a much stronger entity. Where in the body it attacks is only relative to the ability of the surgeon to remove it. Part of the naming process goes by what the abnormal cells look like under a microscope. Squamous cell is squamous cell whether on a nose or an anus or in a colon, for example.

      But a cancer can be different-act and develop differently in a different part of the body. They're developing chemo pills that work on Gorlin Syndrome, a genetic type of BCC that has some facial bone deformity around the nose/mouth. What makes it interesting is that a person can have hundreds of BCC cancers in every pore on the back or chest, without any on the face.

      The BCC chemo, usually a pill, so far is pretty brutal-can't walk or eat from leg and/or stomach pain. One type of chemo pill means that you take the pills for 7 years for a cure. It works on normal advanced BCC and Gorlin, but it's so hard that a person must have surgeries, radiation and regular chemo unless you can get a bunch of oncologists to certify it is Gorlin.

      I think that the war on Breast Cancer by Reagan screwed things up-- people with breast cancer often do well, but some also get lung or brain or bone cancer too. We lost knowledge, research was set aside because it didn't directly pertain to breast cancer. all of the research could have been better developed and brought together to help all of us.

      yes, Iraq was very modern with nomads riding their camels around, and Christians, Kurds, Jews, and Sh'ites often unable to get medical care because they were the wrong religion or the wrong tribe. Having cool, modern Soviet tanks that had air filtration to keep the crew safe during a chemical attack doesn't make a country modern or give it adequate medical services. Without the medical services, it's impossible to guess if they had cancer or not. Cancer is often associated with the oil industry, and Saddam certainly had oil production, so there's a chance that they did have cancers.

      Yes for the Sunnis that supported him and in Baghdad. Our first goal was to unite them- and they've had trouble with the Sh'ites that were oppressed, and want revenge. Iran is sending Sh'ites to fight ISIS which is an extreme Sunni. Yes, there were hospitals, which is better than-NO- hospital, but that doesn't mean that the whole country had a good medical infrastructure.

      I simply stated that Iraq was modern with modern medicine and hospitals (and female doctors) and they had VERY few incidents of cancer.

      Since we have radiated them and left poison products littering their countryside, their incidents of cancer have gone sky high.

      Draw your own conclusions.

      We've always had a lot of people come here from the Middle East, from before WW I, about 1910. I have Internet friends that are in the Middle East. Some disappeared in this century and some more recently in this century. Just because you have female doctors in the capital or in the medical school to show case to the world, it doesn't make it the norm in that country. I have a Sunni female doctor that practices here. She wouldn't have the freedom in her country. She's more concerned with my modesty than I am. I'm not a man. I cover myself up with a paper sheet, I try to keep myself covered, but if my right hand sort of gets cranky, and it slips out of my hand, she gets concerned. I'll put it this way, she did a thorough exam on my hip- a good one, wrote it up good, where I got the proper referrals and care. But it was sort of more like being in the Middle East. I kept my undies on, I usually do, but I opened the sheet up to expose the side of my hip, and that upset her. I apologized, and she reached under the sheet. She did take a quick peek to see if my skin was discolored.

      meyati, getting undressed for doctors is going out around here, possibly because they can see more patients. I undress for my family doctor only when he needs to see a part of the body that is covered. I don't think I have ever undressed for my onc. I did undress for the orthopedic surgeon and dermatologist, for the physiatrist only when he did a procedure.

      I was asked to undress from the waist down, as it was a hip injury. I asked if I could keep my knickers on. I wear USMC socks, Western boots, and pants where I can carry a knife, dog treats, and my cell phone. In winter, I layer and wear a cotton tank top, I just pull my jacket off at the weigh station. In the summer I wear my pants-socks-boots and a tank top. I was a Navy wife, and I learned in a hurry to strip down quickly for a pelvic or body X-Rays- and burn rubber getting dressed, and getting out. this was even with a garter belt, hose, and heels. I also checked my make up and hair. I've had IBS since my 20s, for that, they have me strip. They look and palpitate me from my throat to my anus-front and backside. I am allowed to keep my socks on.

      I had military nurses and doctors comment on how quickly I can disrobe, and then dress. Civilians also comment on my speed. Last week I had to go to Urgent Care, and the doctor commented that I was dressed perfectly for him to listen to my heart and lungs. He wished that more patients dressed like I do. I've often had this comment. The only thing I strip for is my massage, but I still leave my knickers on.

      For PT, they started by unbuttoning and unzipping my pants, then they kept pulling my pants and knickers farther down. I was in a crowded room with men. I asked for a cover so that I wouldn't be so exposed. Because of the area that they had to place the electrodes, it was almost lewd-lots of my private area was exposed-and men that were in with their wives were getting an eyeful. After that, I politely said that I'd like to be somewhere-in a corner-where I wasn't on display, if nothing else, I was ashamed to have my belly hanging out. I still haven't got used to it.

      Schiegal, I told them to their face that I was very uncomfortable and embarrassed. After that, they took me to a private room and covered me with a sheet, so people walking down the hall didn't get an eyeful. I did file a complaint against the therapist that refused to treat me, follow the therapy plan that was being done, because I have cancer. I went out and told them that I wasn't paying for a non-visit. I gave her options- call in a supervisor, find someone else, do the therapy but note that she felt it was inappropriate for some reason, That I have the right for treatment and the referral board authorized more treatments than my PCP requested, that if I left- I cursed her out, went out said that I wasn't paying- and I filed 3 complaints.-one was where the parent HMO notified Gainey Press about this problem, even though it hurt the HMOs reputation.

      As far as treatment is concerned, I think it is about the type of cancer and how rapidly it is growing. I was treated for uterine cancer quickly. Brain cancer hit hard. I was diagnosed after essentially being paralyzed and had surgery the next day with radiation less than a month later. Now I have an enhancement that so far has only been treated with steroids and is being monitored with MRI.

There was no Car until one day somebody thought of it. There were candles before Edison came along with a new idea. Polio was awful and was incurable and so was small pox until Salk and whoever came up with a NEW and revolutionary idea. SO there is a cure but it's not here yet.

      I don't know, barry, but you stress so much about this stuff that you are probably more likely to die from a heart attack or stroke than your very slow growing cancer.

      There are many diseases i would feel far worse about having than cancer. ALS would be devastating as would Alzheimers. We just lost a good friend to diabetes. By the time he died, he had lost most of his limbs. It was awful.

      The examples of diseases you always cite as being cured are different than cancer. There was a single solution to cure diseases like polio and whooping cough and small pox. All cancers react differently. A single solution to cure is highly unlikely, no matter how badly you want it to be so. You way over-simplify cancer, in my opinion.

      Even immunotherapy only works for a small percentage of patients. It is the wave of the future, i think, but there is the fact that i am the only person at my hospital who is still in the particular trial i am in. Sadly, the others reacted badly in various ways and had to drop out.

      Finally, how do you know what's being researched? At conferences i have attended, i hear a lot of exciting news from scientists, researchers, surgeons, and oncologists ... and that's just for lung cancer, the most underfunded of cancers, based on number of people diagnosed with it and number succumbing to it.

      There are NO New Ideas out there right now. It's the Immune Therapies and Lots of chemo and Radiation. I just feel that they are all in group think and don't look for NEW and exciting IDEAS not necessarily treatments.....Ideas are powerful when they are NEW and Revolutionary. That's my frustration. Too many drug companies spending money on the same research all trying to find a new but slightly different chemo drug so they can drive up the stock price. At the cellular level cancer is all the same.....a bunch of cells from one organ NOT Dying on time. AND they can break through the vessels or nodes and get in the life highway. Then when the cells land someplace they burrow over to the nearest blood vessel for food. SO it's about T cells not doing the job, The anti angiogenesis system not working and the Apoptosis not working.....BUT this can happen with cells of any organ including the skin. Same Process just a different organ or group of organs. Lots of cancers behave differently but basically it's all the same. Some cells didn't get the memo to move on.....Maybe they are spending too much time on all the separate organ cells and not enough at the basic cause. I'm just a regular guy who is creative and thinks a lot. Sometimes things aren't as complicated as people think. It's called Okam's Razor.....I think....lol It seems like cancer has broken down to so many different specialties when it's really all the same problem and that's cells not dying and making room for new ones. I am passionate and don't make any excuse FOR IT and it's none of your business.....Some Experts can't see the forest for the trees.

      “It continuously amazes me how much RSO cannabis oil fought my cancer – with no side effects or risks. Alongside the killing of my cancer cells, which is the most important factor to me, RSO cannabis oil also helped with pain and nausea. Indeed i am so grateful to you Rick, the quality of my life improved all around. Thanks to Rick Simpson Oil which i procured And, with my growing experience along side expanding clinical trial data, I find myself more and more confident in RSO cannabis oil and I'm now CANCER FREE and thus sharing this statement. Contact him via email: [email redacted] for your own cure God bless you Rick”

      I think cancer is an epidemic. When you see and read about all the chemicals we are exposed to everyday in our lives, how can we escape from them?
      There is to much in our food we eat everyday. You read about the latest news about water contamination with lead, which has been occurring for years and covered up by the big companies.
      We are being exposed to pesticides in our food and GMO foods, which we have no information on the "long term effects" they will have on our bodies. We are seeing more and more different types of cancer and at a much younger age. Our food is being manufactured chemically today and not by the intended "natural process".
      All our food is being massed produced with much less nutritional value and our bodies are reacting to this form of new GMO foods.
      Our air is also being polluted with airborne chemicals which is effecting our bodies and this is occurring more and more frequently with many cities experiencing smog almost everyday.
      This is an epidemic!

      I think the other side of the coin is that it's more talked about and out in the open than it used to be years ago. It was taboo to get cancer. Even doctor's way back when gave up on you. Thank God times have changed and we can talk about it openly and share our experiences. The patient is much more involved and at least most don't just take what the doctor ordered without checking it out first.

      I am unable to post this in the Success Stories for whatever reason, so I posted here. I was diagnosed with lung cancer on October 18, 2016. I was advised by my doctor that my only options were to have radiation seeds implanted in my prostate or receive regular external beam radiation. I declined. I knew there had to be other options. I scoured the Internet and discovered a wealth of information about cannabis oil curing cancer. I was able to obtain some medical marijuana oil (Rick Simpson Oil) from it and consumed the recommended dosage by mid January. On January 26th I had a cancer reassessment which consisted of an MRI with a state of the art Tesla 3 MRI machine. Results - NO SIGN OF CANCER! CANCER FREE! One of the things that helped me while going through all this was reading the testimonials and the success stories of those who have used the oil and were cured And with good food diet. Now that this wonderful oil has cured me, I feel I need to let others know as well. Please feel free to contact me ask anything,should you like more information or direct contact to DOCTOR TIMOTHY QUILL, EMAIL at: [email redacted] you DR Timothy Quill.Website:http://timothyquill2.wixsite.com/website
