The Truth about Cancer What You Need to Know about Cancer's History Treatment and PreventionNew in paperback the controversial bestseller from one of health care's most passionate and outspoken advocates that reveals what we need to know about cancer to protect ourselves treat ourselves and even save our livesAfter losing seven members of his family to cancer over the course of a decade Ty Bollinger set out on a global uest to learn as much as he possibly could about cancer treatments and the medical industry that surrounds the disease As he explains in this book there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer that go well beyond chemotherapy radiation and surgery; we just don't know about them Now available in paperback for the first time The Truth about Cancer delves into the history of medicine all the way back to Hippocrates's credo of do no harm as well as cutting edge research showing the efficacy of dozens of unconventional cancer treatments that are helping patients around the globe You'll read about the politics of cancer; facts and myths about its causes; and the range of tools available to diagnose and treat it If you're facing a cancer diagnosis right now this book may help you and your health care provider make choices about your next steps If you're already undergoing conventional treatment it may help you support your health during the course of chemo or radiation If you're a health care provider and want to learn all you can to help your patients it will expand your horizons and inspire you with true stories of successful healing And if you just want to see cancer in a new light it will open your eyes The only reason this book fell into my hands was because my brother was evangelically giving it out to cancer patients in my family along with surprisingly bad cancer advice and I wanted to see where he was getting his information from I made a lot of notes while I was reading this book and so I decided to share some of them here in case there are others receiving this book from family members and are confused about some of the claims being made in itIf your simply looking for alternative treatment ideas you may like this book but keep in mind that none of these treatments are proven to work despite what the author hypes and thus should not be used as replacements for proven treatments and also many of them cost a lot of money or reuire traveling long distances On the other hand if your looking for an objective book about cancer this is NOT it this book is about promoting alternative medicine and smearing conventional medicine that’s it There’s misinformation marketing fearmongering conspiracy thinking double standards bad cancer stats misreferencing misrepresented testimonials and it’s not hard to point some of these things out once you scratch the surfaceThe author presents himself as someone on an honest “uest for truth” an unbiased “layman” however he has some obvious biases which shouldn’t be ignored He owns supplement companies a TTAC website and affiliate programs which all generate revenue in the same area he writes and gives advice about And he’s steeped in conspiracy theories and establishment hate How does one take his conspiracy narrative seriously when he’s also written conspiracy theories on JFK 911 Illuminati Fluoride and so many other cliché conspiracy topics I could possibly look past the profits if the information given was good and accurate but it’s notHere's one clear flaw in the book And it’s a rather large issue since much of his prevention and treatment advice is based off of it He repeatedly says alarms that cancer rates are rising eg “they’re ALL increasing steadily some than others and admittedly with dips but increasing nonetheless” and then he goes on to implicate a long list of recent commercial toxins namely pesticides GMOs pollution vaccines mobile phones fluoride plastics chemtrails and processed meat But this is wrong cancer rates aren’t increasing they’re decreasing and have been for some time now Incidence and mortality are down 13% and 27% respectively over the last 25 years And breast cancer isn’t “skyrocketting” its been fairly level for the last 80 years aside from a bump in the 80s when mammography screenings were introduced You can find cancer charts at NCI SEER or ACS Cancer Statistics Center I’m assuming he’s using “prevalence” rates instead of “age adjusted” rates but it doesn’t make any sense to do this when your talking about environmental factors And as far as his list goes epidemiologists would likely only agree with pollution and processed meat most of the rest are just plain fearmongering And its odd he doesn’t mention any of the well established risk factors like cigarettes alcohol and obesity maybe he thought people already know about these But the general theme is everyone is being bombarded with things that are making them sicker and you have to take his advice and buy his products to keep yourself healthyHe also says “the earliest evidence we have of cancer’s existence dates back to only about the 17th century” but this is a very strange thing to say considering the very origin of the word cancer comes from Hippocrates in 400 BC Not to mention we have greek and egyption writings of cancer and several hundred records of cancer in ancient fossilsThe referencing is poor Most of it goes to opinion articles low tier journals or exaggerated or misrepresented findings Here are some examples “A mere 21% of cancer patients survive for longer than five years after undergoing chemotherapy” So 979% of patients die after chemo? How can this possibly be when overall cancer five year survival is 67%? Misrepresented study “Of than 1000 doctors an astounding 883 percent admitted that they would forego chemotherapy” The link goes to a study about Advanced Directives ie would you take chemo in a coma which has nothing to do with the text “Mammograms emit up to 1000 times radiation than a chest x ray” A mammogram dose is 04 mSv while a chest x ray is 01 mSv and for comparison a CT dose is about 10 mSv “The NCI estimates that routine mammograms cause 75 new cases of breast cancer for every 15 they accurately identify” The link goes to a Dr Axe article now a dead link not the NCI as the NCI would never say such a thing “Colonoscopies don’t even get high enough to find anything important” This is super irresponsible and ignorant colonoscopies look at the whole colon and I’m not sure why he thinks they don’t And I’d like to hear his explanation for why colon cancer incidence has dropped by 40% since the 1980s he certainly wouldn’t think it was because people were eating better This author isn’t doing this country any favors by discouraging people away from colonoscopies I’m sure I would find of these bad references if I looked He has a strange discussion about cancer and genetics where he misrepresents the NCI yet again and I think people get confused on this topic so I think its worth bringing up He writes “The official position of the NCI is that cancer is purely a genetic disease” but then he says this is a myth and then he says “truth be told only 5 percent of all cancers are attributable to one’s ancestry” However he’s confusing genetic mutations with genetic inheritance and I think on purpose so he can have a “teaching moment” and appear smarter than the NCI Cancer is a genetic disease yes but this has nothing to do with inheritance As the very same NCI website says “Inherited genetic mutations play a major role in about 5 to 10 percent of all cancers” so he’s just saying what the NCI is already saying Beyond this implying that the other 90 95% are all environmental and in our control is not a good assumption either There could be genes we don’t know about environmental causes we don’t know about or aren’t in control of or even random bad luck and yes this is an thing our bodies are chaotic systemsThere are a lot of serious double standards He has these strong ideologies about “natural” “non toxic” “allopathic” “the pathogen is nothing the terrain is everything” and uses them to discredit conventional treatments but overlooks them to endorse his own Examples He criticizes conventional treatments for being “allopathic” attacking the pathogen yet he endorses RF generators UV blood irradiation Hyperthermia RIGVIR virus IV Ozone IV Hydrogen peroxide Laetrile Photo radiation therapy Metronomic chemotherapy and Signal transduction therapy all allopathic in principle He writes “patented medicines do not belong in human bodies” yet the last four treatments use patented synthetic drugs For example Laetrile is a patented synthetic plant drug absolutely no different from plant chemos like Taxol but he calls it “a vitamin” He criticizes the PSA test because of false positives yet he highly praises seven alternative urineblood tests which are prone to the exact same issue He criticizes surgery claiming that a healthy immune system can eliminate cancer yet he promotes the Latvian virotherapy RIGVIR saying that “cancer cells have a natural ability to hide from the immune system” What’s natural about “taking 143 different vitamins minerals enzymes a day or injecting sterilizing agents into your bloodstream or metronomic chemotherapy? He criticizes conventional medicine’s profit motive but ignores alternative medicine’s profit motiveHis “pathogen is nothing terrain is everything” mantra I think is highly influenced by what the FDA allows for health claims from supplement companies ie they can make claims about improving body function but not specifically about treating disease and its suspicious that this mantra goes away when he promotes treatments from other countriesThe book is very markety At times it feels like you’re reading an advertisement straight out of a brochure Here’s just one example“An analysis of over 800 ONCOblots covering 26 different types of clinically confirmed cancers showed a 993 percent accuracy rate at a cost of just 850 from the Cancer Center for Healing”There are a lot of these type of callouts including five to the author’s own supplement company I scanned the references section and found 20 30 external links to business selling cancer protocols diagnostic tests health products supplements water systems etc This is WAY too much promotion for an educational book IMOThe book is very divisive He ramps up suspicion toward oncologists he calls CAM workers “wolves in sheep’s clothing” he uses fearmongering to draw people away from conventional treatments and screenings ALL of them And within his conspiracy narrative it seems he would like nothing than for the current medical establishment to crumble to the ground and the FDA disappear with all of its regulations None of this is productive and I think it gives alternative medicine a bad name honestlyHis history of medicine is intentionally conspiratorial and freuently doesn’t agree with historians Like saying that Pasteur believed in spontaneous generation when he’s actually known for disproving it or that he recanted his life's work on his deathbed Or that Rockefeller’s financial interest in petroleum based pharmaceuticals was the basis for the Flexner medical reform in 1910 Or that the AMA government scientists historians and the media are all cooperative in a propaganda conspiracy to suppress cures More references to real historians would be niceHe says that mainstream medicine is incapable of studying anything natural or unprofitable since they are only profit driven However he doesn’t address public funding at all which is uite extensive in cancer and it all has to be explained For example the NCI gets 6 billion a year and they intentionally fund research that doesn’t repeat the work of industry and why wouldn’t governments across the world want to reduce their own healthcare costs? Then there’s 49 comprehensive cancer research centers in the US like Dana Farber and Sloan Kettering who’s largely funded by NCI and charity and they can study anything that shows promise Then there’s hundreds of charities and nonprofits that fund different types of cancer research and anyone can start one for any goal even the author could start one So there’s avenues to study really anything It’s true that certain things are harder to study like diet and lifestyle but plants and supplements are easy and they get studied when there is reason to do so Vincristene originates from folk medicine Folinic acid which is used to treat colon cancer is a vitamin Many chemos come from the NCI’s Natural Products Branch which has surveyed than 120000 plant and marine species for anti cancer properties Look up Taxol More recently CAM has studying a lot of the popular alternative therapies like right now there’s a double blind trial going on for IV vitamin C But if the author is going to point a finger about profit motive he’s got four pointing back at him as the alternative medicine industry is uite profitable and uite unregulated and nobody there is working from public funds Book authors online coaches and cancer clinics all make money not to mention the 30 billion supplement industry the author is a part of Alternative medicine doesn’t get a free pass just because they say they’re in the name of a causeThe author relies on testimonials to show that his treatments work While I’m happy that these patients got better he provides no evidence they got better because of HIS treatments as they generally received some conventional treatments as well They may have turned down chemo but they all received surgery and surgery cures a lot of people think of what’s responsible for the majority of the 103 million 5 year cancer survivors in the country He takes credit where ever he can Also he announces some patients “cured” when they’ve had recurrences since the book’s publishingI decided to dig into some of these testimonials and give my own take on them here Trina Hammack is said to have “stage IV” ovarian cancer but the diagnosis was done in Mexico and there’s only mention of a pelvic exam and a blood test no imaging And no mention of metastasis So I uestion the “stage IV” Her cancer may have been cured by her surgery instead of her sono photo treatments Pamela Kelsey was said to have beaten “liver cancer” with Hoxsey tonic but again the diagnosis was done in Mexico using a CT scan which isn’t an appropriate tool for diagnosing liver cancer and the “22 focal lesions” sounds like it could be fatty liver disease She’s also said to have beaten pancreatic cancer in the 70s also using Hoxsey tonic but there’s not much detail in her story and doesn’t even mention stage Allison Huish is said to have overcome brain cancer with frankincense oil but she didn’t technically have “cancer” she had a benign tumor pilocytic astrocytoma And from what I read spontaneous regression can happen after a partial resection in some patients Khrystyna Yakovenko is said to have “overcame stage lV melanoma” with RIGVIR and said “the disease is simply just over” but her journal published case report says something different she has “stable disease” Trevor Smith is said to have “cured” stage II bladder cancer with cannabis oil and diet however he was also receiving laser surgeries and BCG viral treatments which the book makes no mention of And he’s not “cured” either he had a recurrence in 2019 and he’s currently receiving BCG treatments Charles Daniel is said to beat stage IV bladder cancer at Hope4Cancer but his three tumors were cleanly removed with surgery and also treated with chemotherapy so there’s no evidence that anything happened at Hope4Cancer Yes stage IV is usually deadly but it still depends on the case and you can find survivors if you go looking for them For example there’s estimated than 100000 stage IV cancer survivors in the US living 5 years or longer The other testimonials in the book had cancers of lower stages and higher survival rates and all received surgery andor chemo in addition to their alternative therapyI find it slightly troublesome that all of his treatments are promoted eually they all work great but none better than others You would think that if there really were effective ones that they would at least draw attention than the least likely and nonsensical ones Alternative medicine as a whole is this same way its always expanding its treatment repertoire but never narrowing on anything Never advancing For me it’s a bad signI wish there were easy answers against cancer but this type of hype isnt getting us any closer to cures The author doesn’t address complicated concepts like tumor heterogeneity or clonal evolution he just calls a tumor a “bag of toxins” and his treatments are accordingly simple minded Its easy to say “your body has the innate ability to heal” but cancer has the innate ability to adapt and resist And resistance doesn’t just apply to drugs it applies to EVERYTHING including herbs diet and even your own immune system So how exactly do these natural treaments prevent adaptive clones from being selected out? If we just pretend we have answers then we’re not going to make progress against this deadly diseaseIt's a long review but I just think its important that cancer patients get accurate information from all sources and I think books like this can be very misleading for some people Ultimately this book is supposed to enable cancer patients to make informed choices but in reality it’s disinformative and will often lead to poorer choices I would recommend you get your information elsewhere
