Hello everyone, it’s been an interesting month for research, and I have some astonishing news to share..

New Cancer Theory

I've just learned about an Italian oncologist name Tullio Simoncini. He is from Rome, and he has written a book titled "Cancer is a Fungus."

In his book, Dr. Simoncini states his theory that cancers are actually forms of sack fungus, and that they can be killed by treating them with anti-fungal substances.

Dr. Simoncini writes that current and conventional cancer treatments are flawed and says that new treatments and research should be based on the model that cancers are actually fungal infections. He specifically names Candida albicans as the main culprit, and says that these fungal cancers can be treated with anti-fungal medicine.

The most powerful antifungal, as Dr Simoncini has discovered, is both inexpensive and unpatentable: sodium bicarbonate or plain old baking soda.

In addition, he has actually cured people of cancer by dousing the cancer itself with a solution of sodium bicarbonate. The theory, I believe is that fungi can rapidly adapt to anti-fungal drugs and keep proliferating. But they cannot stand up to a change in the pH of their environment.

This theory hit me like a lightning bolt when I heard it. It makes a great deal of sense to me because I've also been following the work of Dr. David Brownstein and other doctors who are successfully treating breast cancer with iodine. As you may know, iodine is also a powerful anti-fungal medication. Hmmm, coincidence?

The links to Dr. Simoncini’s site and more information are on this page under the heading of cancer.

The page also includes information about Dr. Brownstein’s use of iodine to treat fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer under Fibrocystic Breast Disease.


Drug Company Ties Exposed in Education..

The other story that I thought was interesting was an article in the New York Times by writer Duff Wilson. Here’s the first couple of paragraphs in case you havent’ seen it..

Harvard Medical School in Ethics Quandary

By DUFF WILSON

BOSTON — In a first-year pharmacology class at Harvard Medical School, Matt Zerden grew wary as the professor promoted the benefits of cholesterol drugs and seemed to belittle a student who asked about side effects.

Mr. Zerden later discovered something by searching online that he began sharing with his classmates. The professor was not only a full-time member of the Harvard Medical faculty, but a paid consultant to 10 drug companies, including five makers of cholesterol treatments.

I was thrilled to read this, because I believe the pharmaceutical companies have way too much influence over the decisions made on what treatments are given, and what subjects are researched within our health care system. If the newest generations of doctors are questioning the old school and their ties to the drug companies, maybe there’s hope for a health system that really cares about the health of the patient!


Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

Finally, there's a new bill on the floor of the House this week. It's called the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009. The summary says that the bill is "To establish the Food Safety Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the public health by preventing food-borne illness, ensuring the safety of food, improving research on contaminants leading to food-borne illness, and improving security of food from intentional contamination, and for other purposes."

These sweeping bills make me nervous, as they usually include an attack on our freedom to choose to eat and drink what we believe is healthy for us.

It's not encouraging that the bill defines the following specifically: (14) FOOD PRODUCTION FACILITY- The term ‘food production facility’ means any farm, ranch, orchard, vineyard, aquaculture facility, or confined animal-feeding operation.

Hopefully, this is not an attack on sustainable farming and ranching in disguise. Only time will tell.

You can read the full bill here.


Well, that’s it for this issue. I hope the month of March sees you happy and well!
