Published in the well-respected Cancer journal, a recent study conducted at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (UJCCC) describes how radiation treatments actually promote malignancy in cancer cells instead of eradication. More than 200,000 women a year develop breast cancer in the U.S. and at least 2000 men do as well. While Susan G. Komen and other breast cancer related non-profit organizations struggle to keep afloat, we can wonder why simple studies like this one.
A malignant disease is one which is virulent, invasive and uncontrollable. It can even become deadly. It is the opposite of curable. In contrast, there are a number of natural treatments coming to light in reference to breast cancers, specifically, which don’t’ require expensive radiation treatments and certainly do not cause cancer cells to go rogue and grow uncontrollably. Raw, vegan diets and herbal remedies like Turmeric and Black Cohosh are examples of simple solutions. None of these remedies cause your hair to fall out, skin problems, inflammation of the mouth, fatigue, anemia, the development of lymphedema, and extreme nausea.
The UJCCC study found that radiation actually induced breast cancer cells to form more tumors and malignancy in radiation treated breast cells was likely to be 30 times more probable. While radiation treatments can temporarily regress tumors, this is only the false appearance of eradicating the disease, as the study points out. The treatment may seem to work for a short time, but the ratio of highly malignant cells to benign cells begins to spiral out of control very soon after. This can lead to a treatment-induced death – not from the original appearance of cancer, but from the radiation treatment itself.
