Dr. Weeks’ Comment: No one likes to read novels with predictable endings. We like to be surprised and delighted. So you, dear reader, can appreciate how dis-spiriting it is for me to read these medical reports, time and again, over and over with lethal predictability, reading how the trusting patient is scared and rushed into doing the standard of care only to predictably discover to his or her horror, that – no surprise- after chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery, within 3-5 years the cancer is back with a vengeance. This lovely, wonderful, life-filled lady and loving mother did everything her oncologist told her to do: she had her breast with cancer cut off and she had her other breast with no cancer removed (to be safe !!) and she suffered through courses of the prescribed chemotherapy and then suffered through the prescribed radiation therapy. And I can’t tell you how terrible it is to read -again with no surprise – that she is worse off now than she was before trusting and subjecting herself to the standard of cancer care. And even worse, she now is hopeless and dis-spirited.
And even more tragically, she hopes (quite illogically) that the conventional doctor will now be able or willing to offer her something “out of the box”.
Had she or her oncologist studied the significance of 1) cancer STEM cells being more lethal than cancer TUMOR cells or 2) how inflammation drives cancer requiring “centsible” anti-inflammatory foods or 3) how cancer is not a genetic problem or 4) how Professor Max Wicha, M.D. explains: “chemotherapy and radiation make your cancer worse” or 4) the significance of how the integrity of the cell membrane allows for adequate oxygenation of the cell making cancer development and progression a physiologic impossibility (a la Nobel Laureate, Otto Warburg as amplified by Brian Peskin in his revolutionary book The Hidden Story of Cancer)
