You must include scientific support for your analysis. For example using information from expert sources (your textbook journal articles or from the American Cancer Society). You may not use news articles or Wikipedia as a source! Remember that some claims may be partially true and partially false (or opinion not based in fact). Discuss what is accurate and inaccurate in the claim. You must address the entire claim not a single portion of the claim. Be certain to include citations for the information you use. ======================================================================================== Text of the spam: CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS HOSPITAL US PLEASE READ 1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. 2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a persons lifetime. 3. When the persons immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors. 4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic environmental food and lifestyle factors. 5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. 6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow gastro-intestinal tract etc and can cause organ damage like liver kidneys heart lungs etc. 7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns scars and damages healthy cells tissues and organs. 8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction. 9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications. 10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites. 11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply. CANCER CELLS FEED ON: a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet EqualSpoonful etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Braggs aminos or sea salt. b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved. c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics growth hormones and parasites which are all harmful especially to people with cancer. d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice whole grains seeds nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C). e. Avoid coffee tea and chocolate which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water or filtered to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic avoid it. 12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup. 13. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6 Flor-ssence Essiac anti-oxidants vitamins minerals EFAs etc.) to enable the bodys own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis or programmed cell death the bodys normal method of disposing of damaged unwanted or unneeded cells. 14. Cancer is a disease of the mind body and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life. 15. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells. Show less
