Johns Hopkins Update

Recently, there has been an E-Mail being circulated

                      Johns Hopkins Update – Very good article

      That is an old hoax, sorry to disappoint you.

 

Someone created it & put JHU name to it in attempt to

                       make it “More Believable”.

 

Some of the information is correct, some is terribly wrong.

 

JHU makes it clear that they did not write the article 
                                 & that they do not support it.

Johns Hopkins Update – Very Good Article 

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY
IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY ('TRY', BEING THE KEY WORD)
TO ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY
STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY .
 

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins : 

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer  
    cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have
    multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients
    that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after  
    treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the
    cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
 

Unfortunately, the medical society incorrectly believes that cancer is an outside invader, and designed chemo to follow the “Immune system biomechanics”  the fact is that the body’s mineral deficiencies cause incorrect mineral structure of the amino acids, causing incorrect DNA instructions, causing incorrect information on how to manufacture certain cells and chemistries. The way to get rid of cancer is to correct  “ROOT SOURCE OF THE INNITIATION OF THE CAUSE”, which will correct the domino effect. Which is to correct the mineral components of the amino acid structures, which then will correct the electronic information in the DNA, which will correct the instructions  how to manufacture the cells and chemistries, which will correct the resulting cells and chemistries. Because of the corrected environment, the incorrect cells can no longer survive in the “Corrected environment” and will die off by its own starvation.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a
    person's lifetime.
              This does not makes sense.


3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will
                
    be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
 

The immune system only goes after outside invaders, it does not affect                any cell or chemistry made by the body in any way. Cancer cells and other cells are made by the body based on incorrect instructions, therefore, because the body made the cells, the “Immune System” was never involved in any way.  

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has
    nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
    but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
 

This is correct

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing
    diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day

     and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system. 

Basically true. Eating healthy and good quality is true, but the 4 – 5                 times per day does not make a difference. The term “Supplements” is           abused. It is not the “Supplements” that make the difference, the actual supplement, amount and quality makes the difference.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing
    cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells
    in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can 
    cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
 

This is correct. the toxic effects from chemo will chelate more minerals out of the body, causing increased mineral deficiency, causing increased incorrect information, causing increased incorrect cell and chemistry production, they incorrectly state that the cancer has spread instead of the fact that the treatment side effects caused this to happen. it is not “Cancer Spread”, it is “Toxic Reactions caused by chemo and radiation treatments”.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars 
    and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
   This is correct

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
    reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of
    chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
                            This is correct – also see # 6

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from
    chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either
    compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb
    to various kinds of infections and complications.
   This is correct – See # 6

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to
      mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy.
      Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
                                        This is basically correct - # 6

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer
      cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply. 

This is NOT correct in any way. Any attempts to do that will hurt the               good cells and chemistry too. and it does not correct the root cause.                        If anything, it intensifies the root cause by making the body more deficient than it was before and causing the next generation to be worse than the previous.

*CANCER CELLS FEED ON: 


a. Sugar substitutes like 
NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made
    with Aspartame and it is harmful
. A better natural substitute
     would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small
     amounts. 
Table salt
 has a chemical added to make it white in
    color Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt
.  

 The  first part about the Aspartame is correct. The issue about table                  salt is NOT correct, as table salt is Sodium Chloride, which is naturally white in color.

       Regarding the Sucralose and Stevia    -    Stevia is a herb, not sugar,                                          it has sweetness to it, which is fine, nothing negative

 

Sucralose is fine but has negative press because the                competitors are threatened by it. it is a sugar molecule wrapped with one molecule of chlorine so that you taste the sugar but the body does not absorb it. Most people do not realize that chlorine is a naturally occurring element and the body actually requires it. There is nothing wrong with it.  I hear some people with unsubstantiated remarks, and yet it has never proven anything negative. Plus, when you        understand its chemistry, there is nothing negative about it.  

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
    gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting
    off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer
    cells are being starved.
 

This is disgustingly wrong. Milk is required for its nutrients. Some people incorrectly believe that milk is for cows and not humans. There are valuable ingredients in milk. The problem with milk is that too many companies destroy its original properties with chemical processing. The trick is to find high quality milk, it the sale period is more than a week, then you do not want it because it is chemically processed to last longer.

Cancer DOES NOT FEED ON MUCUS. It is not an invader nor a living organism. -  Go back to # 1

Soy is dangerous and should not be consumed by anyone. Soy is used as               an emulsifier, and as a flavor enhansener. “ACCENT” was common 50           years ago, it was straight MSG. Chinese food uses soy as a flavor enhansener, “Soy Sauce” is popular for that. To begin with, MSG is a natural ingredient in Soy. And it is way that processors do not have to show that they have MSG in the food they are selling to you. and MSG can cause liver damage, and is a potential carcinogen to some people. “Soy Milk” is a Juice, squeezed from soy beans. It is NOT a form of milk in any way. To say that it is “Milk” is fraudulent. Have you ever seen a              soy bean with mammary glands?? Same goes for “Rice Milk” and              “Coconut Milk” . these three are simply in-appropriately labeled fad              items.  Soy Lecithin is claimed to be “MSG Free” due to protein               extraction, but, the extraction is only 60 – 70% maximum, never 100%.     Therefore the 30 – 40% remaining that was not extracted from the               protein is still MSG.  to be safe - Any form of “SOY” should be avoided.


c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. 
A meat-based
    diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat,

    like chicken. Meat also contains livestock
    antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all
    harmful, especially to people with cancer.
 

Not true in any way. To begin with, if you have the correct mineral       proportional balance in your body, the pH will naturally be 7.4, which is          what your body should be at. If you are minerally deficient, the common        result is a lower pH, which is acidic. This changes the electromagnetic environment, and the missing minerals cause similar but incorrect minerals to react, causing a close but incorrect chemistry. That causes the communication to change, which causes different results than intended.

There are plenty of people who were deficient, took alkaline material,                 but did not provide the correct alkaline material, which still resulted in                  a high deficiency, but still alkaline. The deficiency still caused incorrect information, leading to incorrect cells and chemistries. The person was       alkaline but still deficient, therefore the focus of “Alkaline” is not               accurate.

Meat is important in our diet because it has enzymes and nutrition available elsewhere. The problem is that people eat too much meat. 6 – 8 ounces weekly is healthy amount. People tend to eat much more than that. If people ate more properly prepared and less volume of meat, that would be healthy.  

The other problem is where people get their meat. Some people complain          that animals are poorly treated, that is true in the “poor quality” meat supply, where the meats have antibiotics, growth hormones, and are preserved in phosphates and other chemicals too.

You don’t just stop eating meat because some, but not all, have been        sabotaged with the antibiotiv/hormones, cruel treatments. instead, seek               out the correct meats that are not afflicted by these problems.            Supermarkets are governed to use these phosphates and chemicals. The single – owned “Mom & Pop” butchers tend to have the best quality meats where they use grass fed and no chemicals, and not required to have phosphates or preservatives because they are singly owned. There are some health conscious food stores who know how to satisfy regulations and not need the chemicals and phosphates to provide top quality meets. These type animals are properly treated and did not suffer the was the poor quality meats were treated. Our body requires            some meat, but not the amount that people tend to eat. There are some           people who actually do not feel good when they eat meat, their body         chemistry simply does not need it, and there are some who are sick without it. As were are all different to some degree, we simply need to listen to our body. Meanwhile, meat does not cause cancer in any way.


d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole
    grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into
    an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked
    food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live
    enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to
    cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance
    growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building
    healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
    vegetables including be an sprouts) and eat some raw
    vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
    temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)..
 

Someone wrote something that sounded good, but is not really accurate.        Forget about stressing to be alkaline because you will miss the other           essential other foods. When you have a good mixture of correct foods, you will naturally tend to have a pH that is correct. 7.4 is normal for the body. 7.0 is neutral, below that is acidic, above that is alkaline. You do not need to be too alkaline. If you are too alkaline, it will cause biochemical stress to your body.

Steaming some of the vegetables will release 5 times more minerals to               your body. Most do not need to be steamed nor cooked.                                         Use common sense.

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high
    caffeine 
Green tea is a better alternative e and has cancer
    fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or
    filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap
    water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it. 

Coffee is bad for different reasons, not the caffeine. The highly complex amino acid structure in coffee causes the body to make strong acids to break it down into glucose. Those acids chelate other good minerals out of the body, causing a mineral deficiency. It is one of the biggest causes of fibroids, cysts and polyps in women, and prostate issues in men. We do not allow it in our house.

Tea is actually good for you, it does not matter whether it is black, green              or white tea. They are all good and have great benefits.  

Water is a victim of commercial hype-marketing, which is a shame. The commercial industry scares people into believing that their tap water is            going to hurt them and has toxic levels and heavy metals. That is a scam to trick you into buying bottled water. Depending on the area, most areas in the country are perfectly fine right out of the tap. I live on Long Island and we all “ONLY” drink tap water, not bottled water, and no filter, and never sick. some areas have water that is not drinkable for any reason, but educate yourself and do not fall victim to the scams and fads.

To begin with, most people do not realize that the bottled water tends to be 70% tap water from the facility. And that is because there is nothing wrong with it. 30% of that bottled water is the “labeled” focus, it does  not say 100% of whatever it is. Guidelines say that they must have at least 30% in there, and the rest can be tap water from the facility. In the drinkable water from your tap, filters remove all the good minerals that your body needed. In Florida, many need the filter to remove the sulfer, but areas like New York do not need it as the minerals are healthy. Each area has a water quality report, and states how much of the minerals are found, and those are needed by your body, the filter removes the minerals that your body requires.  

The other scare marketing is the “Chlorine” and “Fluoride”  scar, and              they scare people more by saying that dangerous amounts are added. To begin with, both are naturally occurring elements, and both are required by the body. Too much ignorant press is written, geared to scare people into buying bottled water. When you look at the water quality report, you will see the acceptable amount, and the existing amount found. In our report, the acceptable amount of chlorine is 250 PPM, the existing found is 12 PPM, no concern at all, the Fluoride acceptable amount is 2.24 PPM, and they found 0.14 PPM, again, no concern at all. People do not think to check with their town reports, they          tend to believe without checking that their water is not good. We had        neighbors who did not believe the reports and sent out to a private lab,              the results were 8 PPM for the chlorine and 0.07 for the fluoride.

There are some areas where the water is not drinkable or needs                 filtration, and I will agree with that. However, people assume without       checking.

The bottled water market is a fast booming industry based on fear-based marketing ploys.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
      digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the
      intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

Somebody wrote something that sounded good, but is totally untrue and   ignorant 

A more serious problem we see is that people are using gas BBQ’s to cook meat. Poison beyond comprehension.

Consider:  If you sit in your car in the garage, with the car running, you will soon die from carbon monoxide poisoning. Why, because the gas burns and gives off exhaust, which is poison. Next step  -  A natural gas hot water heater or boiler has a natural gas burner, the exhaust goes up the flue. There are known cases where the chimney has cracks or leaks, and people die from the exhaust fumes that leaked into the house.

Now look at the gas BBQ, it is the same type gas burner as the hot water heater/boiler, giving off fatal exhaust. The BBQ provides hot poisonous toxic exhaust to cook the meat, which that poisonous smoke is absorbed into the meat, this is the same smoke that will kill you if your chimney leaks. Now you eat the meat was cooked in toxic heated smoke used to cook that meat. People do not realize the toxic effects absorbed into their meat.  When wood burns, it is not petroleum, therefore, it is not as lethal as Natural gas. The wood burns but the exhaust is a fraction of the threat of gas exhaust.  The recent fad of “Gas fireplaces” instead of wood fireplaces. People are not aware of the dangerous toxic emissions from gas fireplaces. The side effects can be quite carcinogenic, in addition to other potential illnesses caused by the toxic smoke being absorbed into the meat.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By
      refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes
      to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the
      body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
 

Somebody wrote something that sounded good, but is totally untrue and  Ignorant 

14. Some supplements build up the immune system
      (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals,
      EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy
      cancer cells.. Other supplements like vitamin E are known
      to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's
      normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
 

Somebody wrote something that sounded good, but is totally untrue and  ignorant 

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.
      A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior
     be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put
     the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to
     have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
 

There is some truth to this in some cases, as attitude is 90% of your               health. People with a negative mind-set tend to be more acidic, and the                body is in an unbalanced state. That type environment makes a person             more vulnerable to additional deficiencies, making themselves more        vulnerable to results from the deficiencies caused by the acidic                  environment.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated
      environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to
      get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen 
      therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
 

Somebody wrote something that sounded good, but is totally untrue and ignorant . the oxygen therapy, in the few that it does help, is only temporary and does nothing to correct the initial cause, nor does it resolve the problem, it is like masking tape to the symptom to cover it up temporarily.

1. 
No plastic containers in micro.   There is truth to this. in addition, microwaves should be avoided, as it creates an electronic short in the food, that heat is what cooks the food.

2. 
No water bottles in freezer.  There is truth to this. the cheaply made bottles tend to leach toxic chemistry into the water at all temperatures, more at freezing and heating

3. No plastic wrap in microwave..  There is truth to this. in addition,             microwaves should be avoided, as it creates an electronic short in the food,             that heat is what cooks the food.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the              cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper The dioxin problem is one of the reasons. 


 
Please share this with your whole email list.........................

Johns Hopkins Never sent this message,                 nor do they agree with what was written

 

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead. 

There is truth to the plastic & heat, glass or metal are safe., microwaves are also a problem, I do not allow them in my house. It Is just there, in the closet, for when we sell the house someday.
