Probably not, read the Emperor of all Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee. He's an oncologist and the book is basically a history on cancer, its really good. In some sense its hard to say what we'll be capable of in the future,and the leaps and bounds made in the history of cancer (it was absolute savagery treating cancer even a few decades ago) kind of make you feel like there's hope that treatment options will improve substantially to the point where people living somewhat normal lives with cancer will become way more common.

Royal Rife.

I suspect somatic cell theory of cancer is wrong in most if not all cases. Cancer is caused by micro-organisms, and one pleomorphic organism in particular that Rife and Arthur Kendall discovered, calling it "Bacillus X". The organism was later rediscovered by Virginia Livingston-Wheeler and called it P. cryptocides.

It can be destroyed by endogenous fungicides produced by fruit and vegetables, and various flavanoids. Rife's frequency generator ideally. At least 2 other prominent scientists of his era developed similar methods. One out of Harvard, another in France.

Yes, absolutely. Cancer is simply a configuration of physical material on a molecular level, locally, within biological organisms. Nanotechnological mastery, and in the biological regard, the ability to reorganize those cancer molecules in their locale, cures cancer.
So, a cure definitely exists, it's only a matter of finding the technique.

>Fasting
Why people dont talk about this literal miracle more?

Fasting helped me twice in my life. Used to be a fat hamplanet when I was younger but after years of keto, other meme diets and exercices, I managed to start looking like a normal human being. All good, but i had lots of lose skin and looked repulsive. Decided to try fasting, firstly for a small periods, then i did 30 days water fast. Not only my skin got better, its elasticity returned, but on top of that even most of the stretch marks started disappearing.
Aside for that, I had a pretty annoying case of psoriasis on my right palm for 3-4 years. Ive probably spent thousands of euros for different meme doctors, expensive creams and pills and even traditional medicine methods with literally zero success. Not a trace of psoriasis left after that 30 days fast.
Sorry for the blog, but more people should know about how good fasting actually is for you. Im a brainlet and know shit about biology so i dont know the exact science behind it, but damn if it worked wonders for me

Can you elaborate on this a bit? I fast chronically for various reasons, and occasionally find myself having barely eaten for ~2 days, but I often use cacao or yerba mate to enhance lipolysis and switch the body over to ketosis faster. At least, that's what I assume it's doing.

Never looked into water fasting, and would appreciate a brief summary.

Well, pretty much, only thing I consumed for 30 days was mineral or spring water. I didnt want to drink tap water since in the city I live in, i noticed how heavily fluoridided the the tap water is and I didnt know how this will play up with my starving body.
Altho, I do admit, I cheated a few times and mixed the juice of a squeezed lemon with my water cos I didnt want to go without any vitamins for a month.

"Cancer" is an umbrella term that covers many different progressions of disease, all with different characteristics, many with different sets of mutations. Some cancers are butt easy to treat. Others are nearly impossible unless we figure out a way to target cancerous cells in a highly specific manner.

Surgery is primitive and braindead, but profitable. Immunotherapy will always carry great risks. We need to tear down the medical chemical complex and start looking at what actually gets results.

My strategy at gathering leads about what might work is following sites like sciencebasedmedicine, skepticalscience, snopes, quackwatch, the CDC, the AMA, the american cancer society, and the FDA. If they're fast tracking something, that tells you a bit. If they're banning, debunking, or criticizing something, that tells you a lot. Timing is key.

Great way to keep track of the lies and the broader system.

What we really need to do is replicate Rife's frequency generator. Prevention is key however, and stuff like CYP1B1 are great leads on that front.

I have a feeling that's just the justification for spending 50 years and several trillion dollars chasing minute details and genes, with no results and trivial increase in survival rate or survival time of a given cancer.

Chemo and radiation therapy may be literally better than nothing if your only metric is survival, but there's a bigger picture here. It's crude and barbaric, and there's no incentive to progress. It's incredibly profitable.

>immunotherapy

What if you figured out that there were very few ways a cell can become cancerous while avoiding the apoptotic programming, and that it was actually the action of a virus that was inducing these changes and controlling surrounding cells with aberrant signalling, to support an environment where it can't proliferate freely and rapidly?

Why do such misbehaving cells taken out of the tumor environment and put near normal cells, cease to be cancerous? According to somatic cell theory of cancer, they're damaged. They're mechanically incapable of redifferentiating and behaving normally. And yet...

There are higher levels to the control structure than those panels though, which can bias the behavior of institutions and funding agencies. A number of approaches you simply would not get funding for, either because they've been rendered taboo or some other reasons. And in many cases, though I don't have proof, I suspect some of these entities are used as fronts for money laundering to other types of projects.

Regardless, there are general ways of controlling people and capturing maintaining key chokepoints of otherwise complex control networks, to maneuver a system in your favor and put pressure when needed. Many methods, I'm not sure which are at work or how it's all set up, but the overall behavior of some of these institutions suggests it's happening.

That's why I said most if not all. Rife was doing his work in a very different time, and found for his methods it was sufficient to just differentiate between sarcoma and carcinoma. To my knowledge it wasn't tested on brain tumors, however the only modern form of electromedicine that managed to get by the FDA, Novocure's devices (the modality of which has been dubbed tumor treating fields) uses a sinusoidal continuous wave field of 200 KHz, approved for glioblastoma multiforme. Rife said most organisms tolerated a minor error (if I recall +-5%), and working on memory the correct frequency was 147 KHz. So they're very close but outside that window, and apparently their version targets biophysical processes instead, interfering with mitotic spindle formation. Slows progression, sometimes shrinks tumors temporarily, but wrong target.

It's unknown whether that organism is capable of crossing the placenta, but it's possible.

Have a drug that targets specific markers so it goes straight to the cancer, and will activate the immune system only there, or deliver local radiation to burn the cancer only there. This is the dream, lads.
Only cancers this probably won't treat are the super dedifferentiated tumors, where the cells are basically just amorphous goop and barely human cells anymore.

Don't forget your electrolytes you madman. I can't conceive how you spent thid much time without salt or potassium. Both make you feel a lot better and a lack of them is a major reason why people feel horrible when fasting. Although people will tell you to dissolve the salts into the water you drink, it tastes like garbage if you do. What I personally do is put my required amounts inside gellules and take those throughout the day. Don't over do it on the electrolytes, potassium poisoning is a thing (but you need a lot of it).

Fasting puts your body into the ultimate survival mode. In the first two days your energy expenditure is increased by 10 to 20%. Then, the body goes back to its normal energy consumption but it also looks for ways to optimize the energy consumption which is often when people will tell you that your muscles will atrophy. This is true but not if you use your muscles during your fasting period, afterall, you need muscles if you hope to find food before your die. Your body won't just try to use muscle though, in addition to the obvious fat that is used, the body will go through a process called autophagy which will eliminate any source of nitrogen that is not useful to the body such as excess skin, cancerous tumours, build up of protein in the brain [alzheimer], etc. Another method of fasting that starts autophagy even faster is dry fasting. As the name implies, you do not drink any water for up to 4-5 days. (I would not recommend doing more than 2 days on your first try and unlike water fasting, this is actually dangerous if you are ignorant.) Dry fasting, like water fasting, forces your body to burn excess calories except that since it does not have any source of water, the body will also purge cells to gain access to the water within them.

Note that I am not a professional on the subject and would love to hear some opposing facts.

I also forgot another great part about fasting when you do it for 7+ days. You will decrease your tolerance to insulin, which is key to storing fat and you will also not have as many sugar craves as you did before. Sugar increases insulin resistance which makes you gain more weight as a whole. Although I am still skeptical about the whole "insulin sensitivity makes you put on less fat" because of my personal experience, there is evidence that type 2 diabetes is due to insulin and it is worth mentioning that body builders inject insulin to put on more mass and weight.
