“The Devastating Impact Of Cancer”

If you would like this piece read to you, just click above

In this post, I wanted to lay out some basic arguments about whether we will ever find an effective cure for any of the major cancers. Personally I don’t think so, despite, to quote Cancer Research, “together, we will beat cancer.” They must keep the money coming in somehow, I guess!

What is cancer?

Cancer affects millions of people worldwide. It is the second leading cause of death globally, according to the World Health Organization. It is caused by abnormal cells that grow and spread uncontrollably in the body. There are more than 100 types of cancer, each with different causes, symptoms, treatments and outcomes.

What are the challenges of finding a cure for cancer?

Finding a cure for cancer is not easy. Researchers face many challenges, such as:

  • The complexity and diversity of cancer cells. They can mutate and evolve, making them resistant to drugs or immune system attacks. They can also vary widely, depending on the type and stage of cancer, the location and environment of the tumor, and the genetic makeup of the individual. For example, breast cancer is not one disease, but a collection of different subtypes.
  • The side effects and limitations of current treatments. There are many effective treatments for cancer, such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy. However, they often have serious side effects that affect the quality of life of patients. Some treatments may also lose their effectiveness over time, or may not work for certain types of cancer or patients. For example, chemotherapy can cause nausea, hair loss, fatigue and infections.
  • The ethical and social issues involved in cancer research. Finding a cure for cancer requires a lot of resources, funding, collaboration and innovation. However, there are also many ethical and social issues to consider, such as the safety and efficacy of new drugs or therapies, the access and affordability of treatments for different populations and regions, the protection of human rights and privacy of patients and participants, and the regulation and oversight of research activities. For example, some new drugs or therapies may be very expensive or not available in some countries or regions.
What are the promising areas of research for finding a cure for cancer?

Despite these challenges, there is still hope for a cure for cancer in the future. There are many ongoing research projects and clinical trials that explore new ways to prevent, detect, treat and cure cancer. Some of the promising areas of research include:

3 syringes
  • Nanotechnology. This uses nanoscale materials or devices to deliver drugs or therapies directly to cancer cells, without harming healthy cells. Nanotechnology can also enhance imaging, diagnosis and monitoring of cancer. For example, researchers have developed nanoparticles that carry chemotherapy drugs to tumor cells while avoiding healthy cells.
  • Gene therapy. This modifies or replaces defective genes that cause or contribute to cancer. Gene therapy can also boost the immune system’s ability to fight cancer cells. For example, researchers have used gene editing tools to correct mutations in blood cells that cause sickle cell anemia or beta-thalassemia.
  • Stem cell therapy. This uses stem cells to repair or replace damaged tissues or organs affected by cancer. Stem cell therapy can also create new sources of blood cells or immune cells for transplantation. For example, researchers have used stem cells to create artificial skin grafts for burn victims or organoids for drug testing.
  • Immunotherapy. This uses substances or cells that stimulate or enhance the immune system’s ability to recognize and destroy cancer cells. Immunotherapy can also create vaccines or antibodies that target specific antigens or molecules on cancer cells. For example, researchers have developed CAR T-cell therapy, which engineers immune cells to recognize and kill cancer cells.
Conclusion

These are some examples of the exciting research that is being done to find a cure for cancer. We may not find a cure for all types of cancer in our lifetime, but we are making progress and improving the lives of many people who are affected by this disease. Whether this will happen quickly enough only time will tell!

Have we really broken the back of research, or have we only just done something very miniscule against this disease. I don’t think we have even touched the sides with this work. My view also, is that the problem is becoming too vast for politicians across the globe. It is still a massive financial black hole. Yet again our generation is leaving another vast issue for our children, and their children. I feel embarrassed and disappointed, because time will judge us. As always please feel free to share your own comments below.

  1. The cure for cancer was found decades ago Chris. It has just been buried because it puts big pharma out of business. I have had cancer of the lung, testicle, jaw and skin, and healed it myself without an issue.

    Today’s cancer research is a scam designed to give us the perception that they are looking for solutions to the problem when in reality, they have known the answers on how to fix cancer for long long time.

    If you sit around waiting for them to give you the answer, you’re going a have along wait. And a lot of people are going to die. I strongly recommend you take responsibility for your own health, and start finding your own solutions, as I did. I have written a book on how I did. It is called Terminal Cancer Is a Misdiagnosis. Check it out and see what you think.

  2. Hi Danny,
    I never have been a cancer conspiracy theory man. But I have to say there are a lot of positives in what you say. There are so many people making billions from this situation, I can fully understand why nobody at that end wants things to change. Unfortunately I include many major charities in that too. Where would their customers go after all?
    Whatever our policy is, it can’t be right, as the numbers increase and so do the unnecessary pain and suffering around the globe.

    We are no closer to a meaningful solution now than we have ever been despite the resources thrown at it for so many years.

    I can definitely recommend your incredible book to anyone affected by cancer, for a totally different view to the one that peddled across society. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Terminal-Cancer-Misdiagnosis-Palliative-Alternative-ebook/dp/B0C81LSKJ7/ref=sr_1_1?crid=15YTT17JIT6H3&keywords=terminal+cancer+is+a+misdiagnosis&qid=1688914695&sprefix=%2Caps%2C51&sr=8-1

    Thanks for all you do Danny, we need people like you to challenge the status quo!

    • I spent many years on the board of the Indian Cancer Society and raised millions for them Chris. I was thrown out because I wanted to look for real solutions to cancer, and it did not have a primary focus on pharmaceutical drugs.

      My thoughts are based on two nearly two decades of personal experience. Nobody is interested in finding real solutions. And most definitely not cancer charities, cancer research organisations, and big pharma. Everyone is making too much money from pain and misery.

      • TBH Danny that doesn’t shock me at all. What does is that you spent many years there.

        People are finally starting to see the corruption that is in the sector, as we go for years and years, seeing little or no real progress. Having the odd headline thrown to us through the media.

        We cannot continue on this cycle of failure. As the numbers increase, society will start to collapse under the burden.

        Thank you for all you do, Chris

        • I joined the Indian Cancer Society at the start of my journey nearly 20 years back Chris. I was in the same boat as everyone else at that point and believed cancer NGOs were genuine and were making sincere efforts to find solutions and make a difference.

          I learned relatively quickly that the whole cancer NGO structure is a complete scam designed to give people the impression they are trying to find solutions, and therefore we should keep giving them money.

          As soon as you scratch the surface to understand what these NGOs are actually doing, you soon realise the whole thing is a joke.

          There is no money in well people. The system is set up to keep us sick. Until we realise that and start taking responsibility of our health, they will ensure that we remain sick, and poor, until we die. Not my idea of fun.

          So I decided to take charge of my own health. I am both healthier and wealthier as a result.

      • Thanks for your post Chris, as always speaking truth to power is the only way to reach people unaware of the absurdity of main stream cancer care
        I have ordered Danny’s book – thanks for bringing this to my attention. As cancer patients we know the value of self healing. Stay safe and well. Warmly, DIanne

        • Hi Diane, I really appreciate your vote of confidence and would love to hear your candid feedback once you have completed reading it. Warmest regards. Danny Carroll

        • Hi Dianne, it’s lovely to hear from you. As we all know we have been on the same path of failure for so many years. It’s about time we realised that we are wasting our time. I’m delighted to have met with Danny and Mark to understand how we might do things differently. I’m delighted to share their work and make people think about how we are working.

          Only we can make the change, as we have been dominated for so long by large organisations earning a fortune from our misery. None of us know the answer but whilst we continue on the same path, why should we we expect any different results.

          I hope you enjoy Danny’s very stimulating and important book.

          Big love, Chris Xx

  3. Hi Chris, I think I’ve told you before – I either mute these ads or answer them back, along the lines of, “No we won’t… You’ve had long enough… It doesn’t serve you to find a cure…” If I don’t mute the ads my daughter does – asap – to stem the tirade from me!! Love to all. Deb Xxx

    • Hi Deb,
      Yes you did mention it and we do too! They’re still banging that same old drum. Imagine, we’re relying on such a charity for cancer research in this country?? Totally controlled by pharma, and no shame.
      Big love to you all Deb XXX

  4. Chris, it is the effects and late effects that can be devastating socially, emotionally, and economically… and it can impact generations of families. And the long-term cost per family just in terms of loss of salary can be in the 100’s of thousands even if some is on a below-average salary in the UK and they become careers of cancer survivor due to the effects and late effects .. then there is the cost of the drugs …

    • David, I couldn’t agree more. #Cancer impacts us all. We really must do better, but I see no coordinated efforts at all.

  5. A great article Chris, as sad as this situation is, and thank you for all the great work you do. There are several reasons why a cure hasn’t been forthcoming, which you alluded to in your article, and Danny Carrol highlighted. But for me the primary reason is simple: we cannot treat any disease effectively if we haven’t yet identified the underlying cause or mechanism driving it. This fact, that the cause of cancer is currently unknown, underlines why the disease appears to be so complex and why treatments are largely hit and miss when it comes to efficacy. If scientists genuinely believe the symptoms of a disease are the cause of it, then the data will never align with such a theory – and by doggedly trying to make that data align, instead of acknowledging the error, such a disease will appear incredibly complex, because nothing will make sense, as is currently the case with the Somatic Mutation theory. This has led to the nonsensical conclusion that random DNA damage can cause the consistency of cancer.

    As Professor Seyfried and others assert, and as I do, DNA mutations are a symptom, they are not driving the disease – we are treating symptoms and expecting a cure. Having written a new theory of cancer that can explain all of cancer’s consistencies (all ten hallmarks), I would argue that there is hope in identifying an effective solution, but scientists and the public need to engage with this new cancer model for us to move forward against the disease. If I’m correct, then the treatment of cancer is already available and easily accessible.

  6. Hi Mark,
    Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to share your own incredible experiences with us. I am a great believer in your work, and as you can see there are plenty more of us too. I’m sure you would get on incredibly well with Danny!

    The way you explain things is so incredibly logical. It shocks me that we can have been so wrong for so long, and continue on that path today. There are so many vested interests in the sector it is truly shocking. How can we expect to get the right answer from everyone pulling in their own direction. Someone. somehow must break this cycle of failure, before more generations are left to suffer like we are now.

    I never was a conspiracy theory man, but I certainly am now. How can we bring about that change?

    Thank you for the incredible work you do too!

    • Thanks Chris, yes when I get time I’ll have to look at Danny’s work. I think to break the cycle we need to be having the difficult discussions that focus on the heart of the problem – which I see as the need to identify the underlying mechanism involved – as this is currently unknown, identify the factor(s) driving it and effective treatment won’t be far behind. Sure we can discuss the multifactorial triggers of cancer, but as they are so vast in number we just get lost in the detail. I’m hoping to break the dogmatic thinking that has pervaded cancer science for far too long.

      Discussing the many cancer theories that exist is the way to go. I watch and listen to many podcasts where proponents of anyone particular theory discuss their views – there is little critical analysis. And I’m sure I’m going to do the same. Ideally, and what I want to do, is have some sort of platform where I discuss different cancer theories and challenge proponents of other theories, as opposed to just speaking to a podcaster who will largely be passive. We almost need to have a large ongiong debate where we flesh out the shortcomings of each theory, attributing an accuracy score for each one, as I have done with the hallmarks of cancer within my book. This will allow us to cut through the noise. From there we can determine which theory is likely the most accurate.

      Due to the corruption I feel that this sort of analysis needs to be presented to the public, because I feel it is only the public on masse that can force positive change. On interviews and podcasts I undertake in the future I will be highlighting the shortcomings of mainstream theories, but critical analysis of my theory also needs to occur.

      • Hi Mark,

        Obviously I’m aware of all the incredibly work that you are doing with Robin and the Yes to Life team. I would be delighted to have a chat to see if there is anything that I can add directly to you.

        Very best, Chris

        • Thanks Chris, I would be thrilled to connect with you and discuss the fantastic work you do to bring about positive change. I’ll DM you on LinkedIn to arrange a date and time a little later.

          Best wishes,

          Mark

  7. Hi Mark

    The cause of all cancers has been very well know for decades. They have successfully made sure we didn’t learn about it. At least most of us.

    I have been down this rabbit hole for nearly two decades, and with sheer dogged tenacity, managed to find the body of scientific work that explained everything. The German doctor, who was a cancer research specialist, had many attempts on his life, they tried to put him in a mental institution 75 times, and he spent 2.5 incarcerated in prison for his medical discoveries.

    I would be very happy to spend the time and take you through his body of medical discoveries when you are ready to review them.

  8. Unfortunately cancer is a multi billion dollar industry. It’s a great business model. Sad but true. And we appear to be going backwards on the research. Now they say 1 in 2 people will get cancer. How can this be? After decades of research and billions of investment!

    • That’s exactly where I am with the entire cancer question Ruth! It certainly is a great business model for sure!!
