Don't Put Complete Faith in Foods or Herbs Reputed to 'Beat Cancer' in Petri Dish Tests
by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) Seldom does a week go by without exciting news about this or that herb or food having a high rate of killing cancer cells - as determined by Petri dish tests ((in vitro tests). The reality is that Petri dish testing is not at all the same as testing in the body itself (in vivo tests). Petri dish tests often over-emphasize the benefits of the item tested and in some instances they may miss some of the benefits of the items tested.
The only way to beat cancer is to eliminate 100% of the cancer cells in the body. Regardless of results in vitro or in vivo, anything less than 100% success in the body itself is NOT true success. In time, it may even be dangerous, as both natural treatments and mainstream chemo and radiation treatments kill the easiest cancer cells first (the least resistant and the cells which are closest to normal programmed cell death via apoptosis or autophagy). There is no single miracle agent that kills 100% of cancer cells in the vast majority of cancers. It has to be a comprehensive anti-cancer protocol like the one we suggest which: :
*has multiple anti-cancer items
*multiple immune boosters
*addresses and eliminates the root causes that allowed cancer to gain a foothold in the first place (in other words, elimination of toxins in the body and the environment and elimination of bad diet and habits)
*contains an anti-cancer diet which includes potent cancer fighters and immune boosters and avoids foods which may contribute to cancer
*addresses stress management and lifestyle advice
*notes the importance of exercise
*explains and encourages the benefits of regular direct and indirect sunshine, and more.
