Scientists Warn Chemotherapy Could Spread Cancer, Trigger More Aggressive Tumors

July 12th, 2017

Via: Free Thought Project:

Chemotherapy can increase aggressivity in cancer, causing malignant cells to migrate and triggering more dangerous tumors — thereby also increasing the disease’s fatality — researchers in the United States found.

Patients with breast cancer who opt for chemotherapy as treatment actually face a risk of metastasis, according to a new study, as Science reports,

“The blood vessels of patients receiving chemotherapy drugs have more ‘entry points’ through which cancer cells can get into the blood flow and disperse throughout the body, scientists report today in Science Translational Medicine. In mice with breast cancer, chemotherapy shrinks the primary tumor but boosts the number of cancer cells in the lungs and circulating the body.”

Although it appears chemo effectively shrinks primary tumors, the treatment ultimately triggers the spread of malignant cells, causing cancer to act aggressively and often, leading to the patient’s death.

“It is thought the toxic medication switches on a repair mechanism in the body which ultimately allows tumours to grow back stronger. It also increases the number of ‘doorways’ on blood vessels which allow cancer to spread throughout the body,” the Telegraph reports.

    Dr. Mercola had an article this week about the use of high dose vitamin C and doxicyline that cured sepsis and in other trials KILLED cancer stem cells. If I ever develop cancer this is what I would try to cure it.
    My cousin MLMS on my father’s side of my family had cancer start in her womb. Did the chemo thing and it just keeps coming back. She has tried all sorts of alternative treatments to no avail. We have been corresponding and agree that cancer is a virus.
    Sent her this Dr. Mercola article that he posted this week, and she said that she was visiting her holistic doctor this week because she wants to do this therapy. Scroll down in the article as it begins with an article about sepsis.
    Will keep you posted.

    Re Vitamin C intravenous – My sister had vertigo and her holistic doctor gave her an infusion of Vitamin C. She said it burned while going in, In addition to the infusion, they told her to use hydrogen pexoride in her ears. Something that I think saved me from all the years when I was traveling so much. Theory is, your eyes wash germs by tears, your throat clears germs by coughing, but your ears? Ears are a warm, fuzzy place where germs love to breed. And when they get in there it will go down to your eustacian tubes. On an airplane, and in that pressurized environment, that is where flying sickness breeds. 6 drops in ear for 15 minutes max is the cure. If the peroxide bubbles and goes snap crackle pop, you know there’s something cooking in you ear.

    Vitamin C effective in targeting cancer stem cells
    VITAMIN C is up to ten times more effective at stopping cancer cell growth than pharmaceuticals such as 2-DG, according to scientists in Salford, UK.

    The research, published in Oncotarget, is the first evidence that Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can be used to target and kill cancer stem cells (CSCs), the cells responsible for fuelling fatal tumours.
