Herbs attacked by Western Medical Establishments.
Since about mid 2013, there seems to be a concerted attack by the various Medical Establishments in the USA and UK on the use of herbs to help prevent Bladder Cancer.
Why all of a sudden, they should start up their properly worded PC type of attacks against herbs strikes me as peculiar. Especially since they have chosen to ignore Bladder Cancer for many decades, and now it is getting some headlines.
Could it be that the amount of overwhelming information coming out of the research labs around the world has started to swing the pendulum towards the natural remedies solution rather than the burn and slash methods?
Nutrition therapy is increasingly playing a bigger role in cancer prevention and treatment. The literature points to genetic causes of cancer at only 5-10%, while environmental influence is attributable to a dramatic 90-95% of all cancers. Diet alone accounts for up to 35% of all environmental influencers, which surprisingly exceeds tobacco (30%).
So if diet is responsible for 35% of all cancers, then it makes sense that if we start controlling what we eat we reduce our chances of getting cancer.
The scary thing is that our environment causes 90-95% of all cancers. This can be changed, but only if the population at large has the will to make the changes. In my view, this is unlikely to happen as so many people are only concerned about themselves and refuse to acknowledge that they can make changes that benefit everyone.
When you look at these numbers you realise that “modern” medicine, as we know it, is just the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. The idea that we solve the “cancer problem” by cutting it out when we find it instead of fixing the causes is why there never will be a cure for cancer.
Is this the reason why the medical establishments are putting herbs under attack so strongly? Do they finally realise that they are so far out of touch with reality that they must destroy those who see that the Emperor wears no clothes?
