  1. by stating that cancer is a genetic disease….. then it simply means that my ancestors are at fault by giving me bad genes….. what the heck!!! 😂😂😂

  2. What is so encouraging is that I can prevent cancer myself, without the medical system. A simple diet that reduces glucose is all that is necessary to stay cancer-free. Big pharma is not going to like this….

  3. I use stem cells from menstrual blood is free…and erwina bacteria from rot onion…the farma use by Mr Thom its made from this bacteria..
    And metformin its made from plant Galega officianlis

  4. There is no opportunity for financial windfalls by special interest “donors” who provide Physicians, Researchers, and Hospitals with the BILLIONS they provide to keep treatments going in the direction that benefits their own interest. It’s corruption at disgusting levels. If we Patients” are empowered to help control our own destiny and well-being we will not only starve the Cancer that is killing us – but we will eliminate the need for the industry that is churning out the treatments that they prefer we utilize – that ultimately destroys our bodies.

  5. This made me cry and so indignant. I am literally heartbroken about how millions of people are being needlessly tormented and killed (the last straw that breaks the camel's back, in a long cancer-causing storyline). Please will the industry please correct standard care for cancer treatment and let people give the correct way a good chance. Like the deep brokenness in every other system (food systems, pollution, etc etc.), how did we even get into this mess? It seems that the further we come and more advanced we get the more of a mess we find ourselves in.

  6. I don’t know what “no carb down under “ means but the United States federal government put the bad mouth on fat and mandated food companies lower the fat content in food so what did the food co. Do they added sugar this led to high fructose corn syrup , fructose a sugar is metabolized in the liver first , plus the invention of something called monodextrine this stuff replaces fat for mouth feel so it taste good monodextrine is handled by the body with insulin cause it is a carbohydrate these two made made food stuffs are in many many many many foods that come in a box or cellophane . In today’s supermarket it’s all carbohydrates , sugar is even in lunch meat it is added for taste it adds weight and is cheaper then meat. Food companies are mandated to make money and to do this people must buy their stuff they want people to eat and eat and eat so food stimulating through advertising is everywhere even this healthy diet stuff is a con game just like the alcohol makers touting their mantra saying “ drink responsibility” add just drink a lot just be responsible for your actions after . So in short just EAT LESS

  7. For people who do not have access to clinics who are supporting this work or who live in countries where this is not available what Can they do to help themselves if they have cancer?

  8. Chimps would a good specimen to prove the fatal effect of seed oil to our health. Feed a tribe of chimps human junk foods for a period of time and see what kind of diseases they will develop.

  9. Does anyone know how I can reach Dr. Seyfried. I would like to invite him to speak to our annual Functional Medicine Workshop, where over 1500 MDs would receive his perspective on cancer.

  10. Dr, please what is the alternative to breast biopsy please? Doctors refuse to treat at CoC without breast diagnosis though mammogram report suggest cancer tumour and thermograph shows inflammation.

  11. You know why the medical establishment is not even looking at these principles? Because there is very little if any money to be made with them. That seems to be the bottom line. God bless doctors like this who truly care about helping their patients

  12. Hello.. My child has a Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor (DSRCT). He is 11 years old. He took three high doses, the tumor eased, of course, but his body was very weak and his psychological condition worsened.. Is there a way to treat other than chemotherapy… Testicular tumor
