  1. Does this include fruit? I am confused. I thought organic fruit and vegetables were the way to go. I don't know what to do anymore.

  2. I recently found out doctors get a kickback percentage for every dose of chemo they prescribe, as high as 12%! I don't see how that's allowed to be legal. It's a real conflict of interest.

    It explains why everyone with cancer no matter the type or how advanced gets put on it.

  3. The doctors told my dad to eat icecream if he wants it. It eventually killed him. Its why im dairy and meat free. Whole food plant based.

  4. I just told a pre-med student about this today. Her response was: "Well, if we have discovered the cause of cancer then we would have cured it so why isn't cancer cured?" I responded "Because people just don't know about this". She responded "No" and walked away.

  5. who knows in 50-100 years orthodoxy might even embrace these ideas….its happened before. What a sad interim it will be. The inertia of ignorance will keep alive the flawed paradigm while millions suffer and die in agony

  6. Cancer is what happens when cells get insufficient oxygen for extended periods. It's a natural survival response. Also junk food, vaccines, glyphosate, pesticides, GM phude, EMF smog, aspartame, HFCS, chemtrails, airborne mercury particles, etc, all work together to weaken the immune system to allow cancer cells to grow.

  7. I would love to know what a 7 day keto diet looks like. Its concerning about the ratio. I couldn't count calories I think it's too difficult unless you are eating processed rubbish.
    Or a scientist
    So if you can clue me what a keto diet would look like
    I am all for it.
    I think the guy is very honest .Cancer is a big beast he is right get all the foundations under one umbrella. 😘
