Most people have
some second or even first-hand experience with cancer.
youíve watched a loved one struggle, or if you are a survivor
yourself, you know how difficult the battle can be.
And if youíve gone through it or seen someone go through
chemotherapy treatments, you know the poison meant to kill cancer
cells can severely weaken the entire body, seemingly destroying
healthy cells as well. The treatment can be especially dangerous for
children with cancer.
Fortunately, if diagnosed with cancer, we all get a say in how our
illness is treated. Right?
Thatís what the Minnesota family of 8-year old
thought as doctors tried to force chemotherapy on their young and
vibrant child. They were wrong.
Sarah recently had 90 percent of a brain tumor removed and doctors
were recommending a year of
chemo to kill the rest of the cancer cells. Her family was not
convinced. Suffering from nausea, weight and hair loss, sore throat,
and sleeping 22 hours a day, they wanted to seek out alternative
treatments for their otherwise happy child.
The medical establishment, undermining their rights as parents and
accusing them of making decisions detrimental to the childís health,
took them to court.
Eventually, an agreement was reached, allowing for Sarahís treatment
to combine chemo with alternative treatments. Though, Iím not
entirely sure how much of an ďagreementĒ it was considering the
Parisian family was threatened with loss of custody if they didnít
Now, Sarah will receive
less than the originally-recommended chemo chemicals and be able to
supplement them with alternative therapies.
So, why the fuss? Whatís wrong with chemo?
If youíve seen someone go through chemotherapy, you can tell it
isnít the most health-promoting treatment.
uses a mixture of poisons to kill cancer cells. But, in the process,
it wreaks havoc on healthy cells and the rest of the body.
One of the ingredients in chemo has actually been labeled as
carcinogenic by the World Health Organization. Yes, the chemical
used in a drug to kill cancer has been found to cause cancer.
Also, there is substantiated concern that chemo creates stronger
cancer cells, those that resist treatments.
Still, chemotherapy is used as the first-line of treatment for many
types of cancers, and mainstream doctors balk at the idea that
anything other than this slew of poisons could have promising
effects on this life-threatening disease.
Similar to mandatory vaccinations, mandatory chemotherapy is
evidence that the medical establishment thinks people are too dumb
for their own good - that they 'somehow know' whatís best for everyone.
This despite the fact that they hide behind a crooked system where
profit is king and health actually takes a backseat.
The case of Sarah Parisian isnít the
first of its kind
and it likely wonít be the last.
Regardless of your diagnosis, arm yourself with information and be
prepared to fight for the right to care for your own body, and that
of your childís, on your own terms, or risk letting the
establishment step in and do it for you.

to save lives from cancer death.
