Study Accidentally Finds Chemotherapy Makes Cancer Far Worse

A team of researchers looking into why cancer cells are so resilient accidentally stumbled upon a far more important discovery. While conducting their research, the team discovered that chemotherapy actually heavily damages healthy cells and subsequently triggers them to release a protein that sustains and fuels tumor growth.



Beyond that, it even makes the tumor highly resistant to future treatment.



Reporting their findings in the journal Nature Medicine, the scientists report that the findings were completely unexpected. Finding evidence of significant DNA damage when examining the effects of chemotherapy on tissue derived from men with prostate cancer, the writings are a big slap in the face to mainstream medical organizations who have been pushing chemotherapy for years as the only option available to cancer patients.



The news comes after it was previously revealed by similarly breaking research that expensive cancer drugs not only fail to treat tumors, but actually make them far worse. The cancer drugs were found to make tumors metasize and grow massively in size after consumption. As a result, the drugs killed the patients more quickly.



Known as WNT16B, scientists who performed the research say that this protein created from chemo treatment boosts cancer cell survival and is the reason that chemotherapy actually ends lives more quickly.



Co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle explains:

WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumour cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy.


The team then complimented the statement with a word of their own:

Our results indicate that damage responses in benign cells may directly contribute to enhanced tumour growth kinetics.
Meanwhile, dirt cheap substances like turmeric and ginger have consistently been found to effectively shrink tumors and combat the spread of cancer. In a review of 11 studies, it was found that turmeric use reduced brain tumor size by a shocking 81%. Further research has also shown that turmeric is capable of halting cancer cell growth altogether. One woman recently hit the mainstream headlines by revealing her victory against cancer with the principal spice used being turmeric.



This accidental finding reached by scientists further shows the lack of real science behind many old paradigm treatments, despite what many health officials would like you to believe. The truth of the matter is that natural alternatives do not even receive nearly as much funding as pharmaceutical drugs and medical interventions because theres simply no room for profit. If everyone was using turmeric and vitamin D for cancer (better yet, cancer prevention), major drug companies would lose out.
