If I contracted cancer, I would never go to a standard cancer treatment centre. Cancer victims who live far from such centres have a chance.
Professor Georges Mathé, French cancer specialist

THE TREATMENT OF CANCER AND DEGENERATIVE DISEASES IS A NATIONAL SCANDAL. The sooner you learn this, the better off you will be.
Dr. Allan Greenberg on 12/24/2002

Stanford University doctors compared the effects of chemotherapy to doing nothing in patients with slow-growing tumors of the lymph nodes. The patients whose treatment was deferred for years did just as well as patients who immediately received expensive and unpleasant chemotherapy. Nineteen of the 83 (or 23%) experienced spontaneous remission lasting four months to six years. A review of the study in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded, "...deferring treatment ... may allow for spontaneous regression of the disease."
"Cheating Fate," Health, April 6, 1992

Medical study shows: untreated patients live up to 4 times longer than those who received conventional cancer therapy

"My studies have proved conclusively that cancer patients who refuse chemotherapy and radiation actually live up to FOUR TIMES LONGER THAN TREATED CASES...Beyond a shadow of a doubt, radical surgery on cancer does more harm than good...As for radiation treatment — most of the time it makes not the slightest difference whether the machine is turned on or not.

...unfortunately, it seems to be only a question of time, usually, before the disease pops up again all over the body... Every cancer patient who keeps in excellent physical shape may have many good years left. The alternative is to squander those years as an invalid through radical medical intervention, which has zero chance of extending life.

...It's utter nonsense to claim that catching cancer symptoms early enough will increase the patient's chances of survival... Furthermore, untreated breast cancer cases show a life expectancy four times longer than treated ones. ~ My wife and I have discussed what she would do if breast cancer was diagnosed in her. And we both agreed that she would do nothing as regards to treatment, except to keep as healthy as possible. I guarantee she would live longer!"
Dr. Hardin Jones, prominent cancer researcher & former physiology professor at the University of California Department of Medical Physics, who has been studying cancer for more than 23 years, travelling the world to collect data on the dreaded disease. Published in Transactions, New York Academy of Science, series 2, v.18, n.3, p. 322.

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: Please don't interpret this and similar statements to mean that someone who has opted to go part or all of the conventional route doesn't have a chance. I believe there always is an excellent chance for health and recovery as long as the person is really determined (on all levels) to recover (after all, some people even recover on the conventional road!).

Chemotherapy and radiation can increase the risk of developing a second cancer by up to 100 times, according to Dr. Samuel S. Epstein.
Congressional Record, Sept. 9, 1987

On Alternative Cancer Treatment

...no diet has ever been shown to cure cancer.
Barrie Cassileth, PhD, American Cancer Society (ACS) Spokesperson, 2007

They [the ACS] lie like scoundrels.
M. Dean Burk PhD who worked for the National Cancer Institute for 34 years

Wer heilt, hat recht. (The one who heals is right.)
German saying

There have been many cancer cures, and all have been ruthlessly and systematically suppressed with a Gestapo-like thoroughness by the cancer establishment.
Robert C. Atkins MD

In the past when the NCI [National Cancer Institute] or its assigned entity conducted an alternative cancer therapy [clinical trial] they always altered the protocols and let it fail in order to discredit the therapy. But this time the pharmacokinetic data shows that they didn't do it right. Most scientists will not look at it carefully because "papa is telling you something and you don't question him".
Li-Chuan Chen, PhD, National Cancer Institute scientist 1991 — 1997, commenting on the NCI's publishing scientifically invalid Antineoplastons trials in the peer-reviewed medical literature “Mayo Clinic Proceedings” in February 1999 showing that the patients unsuccessfully treated with Antineoplastons had actually received severely diluted (up to close to 170 times lower than necessary) Antineoplaston concentrations and were thus left to die.

Dr Linus Pauling, often known as the 'Father of Vitamin C' and twice awarded the Nobel Prize, declared that large intakes of up to 10g of the vitamin each day aids anti-cancer activity within the body. Pauling was largely derided for making these declarations, but today, large doses of Vitamin C are used by many practitioners for cancer patients in nutritional therapy, who believe Pauling was right and that the popular nutrient is indispensable to the body in its fight to regain health from cancer (Vitamin C cancer healing testimony).
Phillip Day, Cancer, Why We're Still Dying to Know The Truth, Credence Publications, 2001

Hippocrates, the great priest of medicine, advised the physicians to accept the help of the laity in the treatment of disease, but his advice has seldom been followed.
John W Armstrong, author of "The Water of Life", whose simple approach healed a number of cancer and other patients

Essiac Is A Cure For Cancer. I’ve seen it reverse and eliminate cancers at such a progressed state that nothing medical science currently has could have accomplished similar results. I wouldn’t have believed it myself had I not seen it with my own eyes. I feel very strongly that Essiac is the single most beneficial treatment for cancer today.
C.A. Brusch, M.D., J.F.K's personal physician talking to radio talk show host and producer Elaine Alexander in a radio broadcast from Vancouver, British Columbia, in November 1984

My opinion, however, is that they (herbs) are superior 95% of the time to any pharmaceutical drug.
Dr Robert E Willner

It is interesting how many establishment doctors start out, in many cases to disprove the efficacy of alternative therapies and become advocates of alternative therapies. I don't hear many stories of the other way round.
Laura Lee radio show, 1994, interviewing Dr. Ralph Moss on Chemotherapy, Laetrile, Coley's Toxins, Burzynski, & Cancer Politics

...anyone who rejects evidence simply on the grounds that it is anecdotal would stand on the end of a jetty with a lifebelt in his hand and watch a man drown, not throwing the lifebelt because there was no scientific evidence that it would save the man's life.
Dr Denis Burkitt, a surgeon who first described the rare form of cancer known as 'Burkitt's lymphoma, speaking at the Pritikin Center's annual conference in Santa Barbara, California

Numerous, independent clinical studies published in major medical journals world wide confirm Dr. Budwig’s findings….Over 40 years ago Dr Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence, which has been confirmed by hundreds of other related scientific research papers since, that the essential fatty acids were at the core of the answer to the cancer problem…You will come to your own conclusions as to why this simple effective prevention and therapy has not only been ignored—it has been suppressed!
Dr Willner, M.D., Ph.D., author of The Cancer Solution

It is illegal for a homeopath, naturopath, herbalist etc. to treat cancer in the UK (Cancer Act), or advertise any remedy for cancer. Only a medical doctor, an allopath, is allowed to treat cancer. This effectively makes it illegal to treat cancer with herbs. You can treat yourself but you can't legally use the advice of a herbal doctor.

You can go into any hospital or surgery and get virtually free drug medicine, but if you want to treat your cancer with far cheaper herbs or nutrients you have to first find a doctor, assuming you even know about the alternatives (unlikely), and then pay him, along with all the medications.

"We KNOW the answer to cancer... Yet the authorities, in the form of the law of the land (UK), will not allow this book (The Good News On Cancer) to be promoted to lay persons.....it is not permitted that they can even be told where to find information that might help them. That has got to be democracy with a very small d......

One eminent publisher...backed out as he feared he could be jailed for infringing the Cancer Act by offering the book to the public. Another...was deliberately pressured by an unnamed group after his medical reader (an M.D.), having checked the manuscript, leaked its contents to a confidential authority.
Dr Richards & Frank Hourigan

The War Against Quackery is a carefully orchestrated, heavily endowed campaign sponsored by extremists holding positions of power in the orthodox hierarchy.....The multimillion-dollar campaign against quackery was never meant to root out incompetent doctors; it was, and is, designed specifically to destroy alternative medicine...The millions were raised and spent because orthodox medicine sees alternative, drugless medicine as a real threat to its economic power. And right they are...the majority of the drug houses will not survive.
Dr Atkins, M.D. (quoted in "The Healing of Cancer", p. 158, by Barry Lynes)

According to scientific criteria, [Dr. Hamer’s] New Medicine has to be declared as true according to the present state of science and to the best of our current knowlege. Whereas orthodox (conventional) medicine, scientifically speaking, is an amorphous mush, which cannot even be falsified, let alone verified due to its being based on fundamentally misunderstood (alleged) facts. According to scientific criteria, conventional medicine can only be called a hotchpotch of hypotheses, hence unscientific and to the best of human judgment false.
Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Niemitz assessing the scientific validity of Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer’s "German New Medicine" versus conventional medicine, translated by Healing Cancer Naturally © 2008

And what do I actually do? I give cancer patients simple, natural foods. That is all. I take sick people out of the hospital, when it is said there that they do not have more than an hour or two left to live, that the scientifically attested diagnosis is at hand and that the patient is completely moribund. In most cases I can help even these patients quickly and conclusively.
Dr. Johanna Budwig, seven-times Nobel prize nominee, in "Flax Oil as a True Aid"

...remember, nothing works all by itself! You must look at healing in a holistic way! Much literature exists on this interesting subject. Again — no therapy is either effective nor valid all by itself without considering a change in diet, life style and emotional outlook on life. You can’t eat like food is going out of style, hate and criticize all of Nature’s creation and take a couple of herbs and hope to heal in 24 hours or less! Nature takes a long time to break down and takes a long time to heal 100%. Absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean a complete return to health!
Dr. A., a naturopathic physician

You wouldn’t believe how many FDA officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hannover. You wouldn’t believe this, or directors of the AMA, or ACA, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes. That’s the fact.
Hans Nieper M.D. (1928-1998)

Holistic methods focus on working with the body and boosting whatever immune system the patient still has. Chemotherapy and radiation by contrast, usually devastate the immune system at the one time in you life that you need it the most. Lorraine Day tells us: "Cancer is a disease of the immune system. It's caused by a depressed immune system. How can it possibly be cured by a therapy that further damages the immune system?" Cancer Doesn't Scare Me Any More
Dr Tim O'Shea in TO THE CANCER PATIENT www.thedoctorwithin.com

The more expert—or at least the more educated—a person is, the less likely that person is to see a solution when it is not within the framework in which he or she was taught to think. When a possibility comes up that is ruled out by the accepted framework, an expert—or well-educated individual—is often less likely to see it than an amateur without the confining framework.

For example, one naturally prefers to consult a trained doctor than an untrained person about matters of health. But if a new cure happens to be developed that is at variance with accepted concepts, the medical profession is often the last to accept it. This problem has always existed in all professions, but it tends to be accentuated under modern conditions.
Herman Kahn

After more than twenty years of ... specialized work, I have found the nontoxic Nitrilosides — that is, Laetrile [also known as amygdalin or Vitamin B17] — far superior to any other known cancer treatment or preventative...
Dr. Hans Nieper, Germany
Compare Laetrile background article, Ernst Krebs lecturing on Vitamin B17 and the book World Without Cancer.

Eminent author Lothar Hirneise who travelled the world in search of effective answers to healing cancer writes that in his research of conventional and alternative cancer treatments, he learned that even among the so-called alternative practitioners, making money and satisfying one’s personal ego played the major part, similar to what can be observed in the orthodox oncological fraternity (see On Cancer Business and Negative experiences in the alternative cancer treatment field: on honesty & deception, money & manipulation, commercialism, theft of copyright, ego and “all that glitters is not gold").
