Why Chemotherapy Doesn’t Work

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

Chemotherapy has repeatedly failed. The medical profession, the pharmaceutical industry and the cancer industry are so desperate to hide this fact that they now probably consider it a success if the survival rate of patients who take chemotherapy actually matches the survival rate of patients who don’t take chemotherapy.

There are two fundamental problems with chemotherapy.

First, in order to kill the cancer cells (which are, after all, merely ordinary human cells which have got out of control) the drug which is prescribed must be so toxic that it inevitably causes a great deal of damage to other, healthy, cells. When chemotherapy is given by mouth (or by any other general, system route) the whole body may be affected – even though the drug is aimed only at one very specific site in the body.

When chemotherapy fails to work the doctors invariably respond by increasing the dose or making the chemotherapy even more toxic. The end result is that the chemotherapy may well kill the cancer cells but it will probably also kill the patient. (Thereby helping to perpetuate the old medical comment about the treatment being a success but the patient dying.)

Second, even when chemotherapy (or radiotherapy) does succeed in apparently ‘killing’ a cancer (and doctors like to give themselves a decent chance at a good cure rate by claiming that any patient who survives an extremely modest five years has been cured) there is a considerable risk that the cancer will recur. When you stop and think about it this isn’t difficult to understand for chemotherapy (or radiotherapy or surgery for that matter) does absolutely nothing to alter the circumstances which led to the cancer developing in the first place.

When a cancer recurs it isn’t necessarily because the surgeon, the radiotherapist or the physician prescribing the chemotherapy has failed to kill all the cancer cells, but because nothing in the body has changed. The circumstances which led to the development of a first cancer can just as easily lead to the development of a second cancer.

It is for this reason that one often hears of extremely unfortunate individuals who have developed two or even three cancers in separate organs.

However, here’s an interesting observation which I bet you won’t see plastered all over the official medical journals: twenty years ago when a group of leukaemia patients were treated by having their own bone marrow removed and replaced with bone marrow from a donor, the leukaemia returned in a number of the patients. But – and this is the fascinating bit of the story – DNA checks showed that the new, second bout of leukaemia, consisted of cells which had belonged to the healthy donor. The patient’s original bone marrow had all been removed and this time it was the donor’s bone marrow which had turned into leukaemia cells.

It seems to me pretty clear from this that there must have been something within those patients’ bodies which was turning healthy cells into cancer cells.

And the simple answer is that the cause of the cancer is inside the patient and is untouched by a treatment which simply attacks the cancer cells. It is because the cancer industry either fails to understand this (or doesn’t want to believe it) that the cancer industry will never succeed in beating cancer.
