In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state…Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease…Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease.
Dr. Steven Levine, renowned Molecular Biologist and Author,
in Antioxidant Adaptations: Its Role In Free Radical Pathology, 1985

The average daily number of cases seen during my twenty years' service in West Africa was about sixty ..., yet I only saw six cases of cancer altogether; five of these were in coast stations, the other one away in the grass country, but not one amongst those two million people in the heart of the Niger Delta.

... Amongst the race of which I write, where conventionalism is absent and food perfectly natural and abundant, where the natives have never lost touch with the first principles of feeding, and there is no such thing as constipation, there is no cancer. At the first dawn of civilisation amongst them this disease makes its appearance; where civilization is advanced, cancer is rife.
Dr. Ernest H. Tipper in his book "The Cradle of the World and Cancer — a Disease of Civilization"

Since you are all energy, the problem and the solution healing to your illness begin and end in your energy field.
From Rules for Illness — What You Need to Know If You Are Ill by Ellen A Mogensen

The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a relative lack of oxygen. Cancer cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment...Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body’s cells by an anaerobic (i.e., oxygen-deficient) cell respiration.
Dr. Otto Warburg, twice Nobel Laureate, Nobel prize in 1931 for discovering the cause of cancer

Cancer is a disease of stasis, i.e. lack of proper life energy flow.
Tenet of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), endorsed by eminent cancer researcher Lothar Hirneise, Healing Cancer Naturally and others

...the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.

Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.

All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes.
Dr. Otto Warburg in The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer

When I've asked each cancer patient ... whether there was a part of him or her which wanted to die, the answer was invariably "yes".
Dr. Hans-Peter Zimmermann translated by © Healing Cancer Naturally 2007

Dr. Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence ... that the essential fatty acids were at the core of the answer to the cancer problem…
Dr Willner, M.D., Ph.D., author of The Cancer Solution

Our current estimate is that about 75% of the current annual incidence of breast cancer in the U.S. is being caused by earlier ionizing radiation, primarily from medical sources.
John W. Goffman, M.D., Ph.D., Committee for Nuclear Responsibility, in Preventing Breast Cancer: The Story of a Major, Proven, Preventable Cause of This Disease, 1995. Excerpts from this book at Ionizing Radiation (Fluoroscopy/ Mammography/Medical X-Rays) Proven Causes of Breast Cancer.

The severe deficiency or lack of over 60 crucially vital trace elements in our daily food is by far the largest cause of most diseases — at my guess about 80%. Next are the agricultural poisons which our agricultural and horticultural industries have foisted upon us.
Quoted from article by Peter H. Weis

Our immune system, which is vital for destroying cancer cells, requires EFAs, vitamins C, B6, and A, and zinc to function, and requires an exceptionally rich nutrient supply of ALL essential nutrients for its high level of complex cellular activities. Deficiencies of EFAs and toxic, man-made synthetic drugs that interfere with essential fatty acid functions can create the conditions of fatty degeneration collectively known as cancer.
Udo Erasmus, author of Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill

Cancer is a disease of location triggered off by geopathic stress.
Dr Ernst Hartmann, MD

...(cancer) patients... have no compelling purpose for LIVING. ... The litmus question ... "What real reason do you have for living?" is often unanswerable... Search for a universal cancer or AIDS cure has obscured recognition of the fact that these diseases will recur (come back) when their predisposing conditions (mostly mental, environmental or habitual) remain.

We can aim for reasonable control with multiple therapies, much as we can control a headache with Aspirin, but the surest therapy is prevention. By improving our environment, our life styles and our deeper motivations, we can help to resist the stresses that we impose, or allow to be imposed, on our bodies and minds. The result is perfect health!
Dr. A., a naturopathic physician

Everything... that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. ... the causes of symptoms are within.
Martin Brofman, Ph.D. who healed his terminal cancer through a consciousness shift

The more advanced your case of cancer, the more obstinate the constipation.
Eli Jones, M.D. 1910

Diseases are but symptoms of nutritional deficiencies combined with retained toxins. These are caused by poor soil resulting in nutritionally deficient plants and fruit and other foodstuff...

We must change our nutritional habits to consume at least 75% LIVING and UNPROCESSED foods — those that grow in the ground or fall from a tree. Everything else is hardly worth eating. If we do this we can stop using drugs and even supplements because our food has become our medicine.
Dr. A., a naturopathic physician

CANCER... Failing to Take Action to Solve Long-Standing Life Conflicts
More often than not, the cancer "victim" has a pattern of long standing life problems that have been "eating them up inside".
Their inability or unwillingness to effectively deal with these problems is what created the cancerous cocoon to begin with.
From Spiritual Reasons for the Top 10 Causes of Death by Ellen A Mogensen

X-rays are a proven cause of human cancer. It is doubtful that you can find any cancer biologists who would deny that statement.
John W. Gofman, M.D., Ph.D. The X-rays and Health Project. An educational project of the Committee for Nuclear Responsibility.

The greatest part of all chronic disease is created by the suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning.
Henry Lindlahr, M.D.

Cancer is, basically, a nutritional/environmental disease — it has never been incurable, nor is it anything to do with bad luck. The medical orthodoxy resisted vitamin C as a cure for scurvy for over 200 years; the British Navy, alone, lost over a million men before the academic blockheads could be persuaded to give up their search for mystery "germs" and wonder cures from the chemical industry and turn towards the "witch-doctor cures of ignorant savages."

All over the world countless people have been restored to health using naturopathic and other therapies, yet they have been ruthlessly suppressed in order to protect the vested interests of the cancer industry.
British Anti-Vivisection Association

Cancer patients suffer from a faulty metabolism caused by a malfunction in the lipid defense system. By repairing the lipid defense system the cancer cannot survive. Of course common chemo and radiation causes further harm to the lipid defense system — the very system that protects you from cancer!

The folks who will READILY ADMIT that they don't understand the cancer mechanism will tell you with their next breath that cancer can be killed with poisons. So can you. Would you trust your car to a so-called mechanic who didn't understand what makes a car work properly? If not, why would you let someone who doesn't understand cancer "fix" your body?

The average cancer docs don't know — they admit it. That doesn't make them bad people, it just makes them unqualified to treat your condition if you have cancer. Don't let unqualified people poison you just because they don't know what else to do.
William Kelley Eidem, author of The Doctor Who Cures Cancer (Dr Revici)

More people have died in the last 30 years from cancer connected with fluoridation than all the military deaths in the entire history of the United States.
Dean Burk, PhD, National Cancer Institute — Fluoridation: A Burning Controversy

Cell Phones (mobile phones) and brain tumours

In 1993, when the cell phone industry's chief lobbyist hired epidemiologist and pathologist Carlo to refute claims that cell phones, which had never been subjected to premarket testing, cause cancer, no-one thought he would discover otherwise.

But after six years of exhaustive analysis and scrupulous peer review, the results proved, according to this report, that radiation from a cell phone's antenna can cause the formation of micronuclei red flags for cancer in the brain. Children in particular are more susceptible to the radiation than adults.

Carlo reported his findings to the industry and the FDA and advocated for continued research, but both parties still maintain that cell phones are safe. ... detailed scientific explanations ...Journalists, policymakers and consumer advocacy groups...will find this no-holds-barred book extraordinarily informative as they continue investigations of the industry.
Ronald L. Goldfarb (Cahners Business Information) in Publishers Weekly

...the condition is still a healthy attempt on the part of the body to maintain balance
Seth commenting on disease in The Nature of Personal Reality

... from my experience I am a practical thinker and water makes sense. I can personally claim that your information works and it is amazing that so many other friends of mine think it is just too simple of a solution.

It is particularly distressing to encounter the ignorance shown by traditional medical people who seem to be blinded by their training and professional arrogance when it comes to acceptance of your information. Thank you very much Doctor Batmanghelidj and I pray that ”WE” are successful in getting your practical information heard by people who can benefit from it.
Wells Jackson, cured of prostate cancer by water drinking and diet improvements (cutting out alcohol, coffee & sodas and eating lots of vegetables, particularly greens)

Firstly Bob, I want to thank you for your web site and for your unselfish dedication to Dr. Batmanghelidj and the water cure. About five years ago, I was told by Doctors, one at Sloan Kettering Memorial Cancer Center that I had lymphoma (of the stomach lining). I went on a short water fast and after 4 days vomited large amounts of bile. I continued for several more days and increased my water drinking to about 80–100 oz. a day. I did not listen to the doctors and took no other treatment.

Today I am in great health, all thanks to water. I only wish that I had learned the secret earlier in my life. Lymph is just about 90%+ water and no one should get lymphoma — it is all due to dehydration...I must wonder why it is so difficult to get people to listen and understand about the benefits of water.
