Every aspect of our society has seen a steady innovative progression over the last century. We have stood witness as flimsy wooden contraptions barely getting off the ground transformed into sophisticated jets capable of reaching incredible heights. The incessant beeps of the telegraph, became a massive global network of fibre optic communication, and what was once a vast and unknown planet has since been mapped and recorded in every regard. In fact, the only area that has not changed over the last 100 years is the apparent decisive incapacity of medical science to find a cure, or even a reasonable treatment for, what has now become the most profitable “disease” in medical history: Cancer.
This willful ignorance in regards to such a rising medical threat has seen the recorded deaths skyrocket over the years. Currently, 20,000 people die of cancer everyday. That ’s 8,000,000 deaths a year. At the beginning of the last century one in every 20 were diagnosed with cancer; in the 1940s, that was one in every 16; in the 1970s, that was one in every 10. Today, that number has exponentially risen, and now one in every 3 will be diagnosed with cancer, and one in every four will die of that cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, almost 600,000 people are projected to die from that cancer in 2016; that’s almost 1600 a day.
The word cancer brings on feelings of hopelessness and fear, as we are taught that despite this nation’s extreme advancements in all other facets of life, that our brightest scientific minds are simply unable to find an answer. The only option left, we’re told, is the wildly unsuccessful and detrimental choices of: chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, all of which have extremely low success rates, and almost a guaranteed chance of recurrence. These unsuccessful options are all that is offered, primarily because they are extremely profitable, both for the producer and the doctors themselves. Maintaining a lifetime of treatment, as opposed to a one time cure, creates an almost incapacitating level of control, and a massive profit motive to keep any and all cures from seeing the light of day.
The average cost per person for the typically prescribed cancer treatment is $50,000. With One million new cancer patients every year in the US, that’s 50 billion a year spent on cancer TREATMENT alone. From Research laboratories to Medical schools; from prevention clinics to worldwide drug sales, today the cancer medical apparatus is so large and expensive that is now needs its patients in order to survive, just as much as its patients are told they need the apparatus to survive themselves, but today we are here to tell you, that you are being lied to.
