Cancer; Why We`re Still Dying To Know The Truth by Phillip Day.’
I recently received this lovely (but sad) email from a reader – she isn’t the first to recommend Phillip Day.
In the last few months I’ve been inundated with emails and tweets from people telling me about Phillip Day’s life-changing workshops and books.
If you’ve seen Food Matters you’ll recognize Phillip as the fast-talking English journalist who sums up (in just a few sound-bites) all that is wrong with the modern medical establishment.
When he’s not being a film star, Phillip Day is writing eye-opening reports, advising cancer doctors around the world, speaking at conferences and writing books (he’s even written a technical manual about B17 therapy for doctors – and, believe it or not, many have read it too).
I had the privilege (and pleasure) of speaking with him on Monday.
Here’s what he had to say…
If you’re diagnosed with cancer today, how much better is your life expectancy than if you were diagnosed 30 years ago?
‘It isn’t. The five-year or better survival rates for almost all forms of cancer officially remain almost unchanged.
There isn’t one study you can show me that demonstrates that chemotherapy, or radiation or surgery extend life in the major epithelial cancers.
The cancer industry has failed, to such an extent that they’ve had to redefine the word ‘cure’ to only mean five years after initial treatment.
Take my aunt as an example. My aunt got breast cancer, she had all the chemo you can imagine – despite my best efforts to persuade her otherwise – and she survived five years, so she’s forever immortalized in the Cancer Research UK database as a cancer survivor.
Of course she hit the five-year mark and died six months after that.
So she’s ‘cured’ and dead.’
Why do millions still believe in the power of chemotherapy?
‘Because that’s the only thing they’ve been told they can do.
When you get a cancer diagnosis you’re frightened and you’re looking around to see who’s going to offer you the best promise of further life. Of course everyone wants to trust their doctors so they go to the doctor and say ‘Hey, I’ve got cancer, what’s my best choice?’
The information they’re given is coloured by the fact these people are trained in institutions funded by the drug industry. And so they only get that particular side of it.
The cure for cancer is the immune system: the very thing that traditional treatments devastate.Which might explain why we (in England) have the worst cancer survival rates of any western, industrialized nation.
You’re better going off to Latvia because at least they can’t afford the chemo out there.’
‘The biggest myth is that you can pour ‘X’ chemical warfare agents into a human being and believe that you’re going to cure them.
And when you get to radiation, how many people know that radiation causes cancer?’
What is Cancer?
‘Cancer is basically a fungus (more on that later) and the degree that it can spread in the body, is the degree to which the immune system will let it.
If your immune system is weak, the fungus is going to come out, feed on trapped sugars, and start to create mischief.
Along comes a doctor and says ‘ Right, the best cure for this is chemo,’ and what they’re after is tumour shrinkage, but tumour shrinkage is not the same thing as curing cancer.’
‘Cancer is not a localized lesion; cancer is a systemic issue.
You can cut tumours out of the human breast all day long and they keep growing back, the reason they grow back is that you never rescued the immune system.’
