“Previous research has found that chemotherapy can trigger muscle loss in people living with cancer, but a new study found it may also affect the way the body builds new muscle — and at lower doses than previously known.” [Source: Medicalexpress.com]
Chemotherapy intoxicates the entire body and kills cancer cells and healthy cells alike. To make things worse, it particularly affects healthy cells in the body that multiply rapidly, such as the white blood cells of the immune system. Thus, at the very time when the body of a cancer patient has the greatest need for an effective defense, its immune cells are being systematically destroyed.
One does not have to be a doctor to realize that if medicine has to resort to these ‘shotgun’ type approaches, this can only mean it does not properly understand the root causes and pathways of the disease it is trying to treat.
To be effective against cancer, therapies need to be able to specifically target cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed. Significantly, therefore, as recognized in a key study published by scientists at the U.S. government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2005, the natural substance vitamin C selectively kills cancer cells. The NIH researchers specifically stated in this important study that their findings give plausibility to the use of intravenous vitamin C in the treatment of cancer.
Work conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has proved that a synergistic group of micronutrients including vitamin C can inhibit the invasion of more than 40 types of human cancer. When used in combination these micronutrients are able to inhibit cancer cell invasion and metastasis, inhibit cancer cell multiplication and tumor growth, inhibit the formation of new blood vessels that feed tumors (angiogenesis), and induce the natural death of cancer cells (apoptosis). There is no drug anywhere in the world that can effectively and safely achieve all of these things.
