Trapper, I got the following email yesterday... I do think you are on to something...
The War on Cancer has been a human disaster since the beginning. Though medical scientists set out to find, treat, and cure the disease they conveniently forgot to address most of the things known to cause cancer, including tobacco, the workplace, radiation, fluoride, pesticides, food additives , chlorinated water, air pollution and heavy metal toxicity. This has been no accident. The War on Cancer was run by leaders of industries that made cancer-causing products and by pharmaceutical companies who profited from drugs and technologies for finding and treating the disease.
We have been fighting the wrong war, with the wrong weapons, against the wrong enemies for forty years and the results are horrid. Our loved ones are dying like flies all around us and we wonder if we are next. The information you are about to read during the next week defines cancer in a completely different way. Cancer is difficult but when we recognize it for what it really is there is hope and there is escape from orthodox oncology that uses treatments that cause cancer to treat cancer.
I do not treat cancer, not when you define cancer the way orthodox oncologists do. I do not treat colonies of human cells whose DNA have short-circuited. I do not try to kill these imaginary cells with lethal radiation nor do I try to chemically bomb them out of existence with chemo-therapy. Nor do I own a scalpel thus there is no chance you will find me cutting out peoples tumors. I am not an oncologist!
There is something wrong with the way we have perceived cancer and that wrongness of perception leads people into a dark pit of despair - to great suffering and a bitter terminal end to life. For all who wish to ignore everything that follows and continue to believe what the oncologists and medical authorities want you to believe I extend the same empathy I always had for the long lists of Jews, Gypsies and Russians who were lined up to face the gas chambers and other medical horrors that the Nazis thought up to prove to the world how disgusting humans can be toward each other.
When it comes to that history we should never forget who built and ran one of the nastiest concentration camps of them all. So great did I.G. Farben regard the postwar potential of the Auschwitz project that it decided to make an unusual gamble on its future. Rather than let the German government finance the building of the installations, the I.G. directors voted to put up the funds to make I.G. Auschwitz a privately owned I.G. enterprise and to assume the entire risk and thus of course the entire responsibility.[i]
At the end of WWII the allies split up IG Farben into companies that are now the top pharmaceutical concerns on earth among them Bayer, Hoescht, BASF, the Agfa-Gevaert Group and Cassella AG. Many of Wall Streets favorite pharmaceutical/chemical companies behind the proliferation of genetically-altered foods, transgenic animals, human cloning, dangerous psychiatric drugs, deadly vaccines and pesticides-such as Aventis-are subsidiaries of these same companies.[ii]
It is impossible to understand the politics of medicine and the history of the war on cancer without acknowledging the pharmaceutical companies historic tendencies to treat people like cattle. Most people today resent any mention of the Nazi horrors and who financed and administrated them for they have made a new religion out of worshipping these same companies and their products.
Our worship of orthodox medicine, of vaccines and cancer
treatments is in reality the worship of the Fourth Reich.
Of the 24 directors of IG Farben indicted in the so-called IG Farben Trial (1947-1948) before a U.S. military tribunal at the subsequent Nuremberg Trials, 13 were sentenced to prison terms between one and eight years. Some of those indicted in the trial were subsequently made leaders of the post-war companies that split off from IG Farben, including those who were sentenced at Nuremburg.[iii]
Anyone who believes that these directors had a change of heart and reformed their ways deserves the treatments they get from the companies and doctors who are card carrying members of the orthodox medical establishment. They are in an incestuous relationship with the very profitable pharmaceutical industry and for this alone should not be trusted.
Orthodox allopathic medicine and the entire field of oncology are married to the worst elements of modern history. One has to understand what one is trusting when walking into an oncologists office of their own free will. The unfortunates in Europe had to be herded into the death camps at gun point but now people walk into hospitals of their own free will
I will now start communicating a new story that is based on the research and clinical experience of a long chain of medical scientists and doctors who have shrugged off the medical insanity and pharmaceutical Terrorism involved in the cancer field. To begin we have to first look at the field of microbiology and the process of pathogen differentiation that leads to ever worsening infectious processes. The following chapter is a primer for those that follow.
Mark Sircus Ac., OMD
Director International Medical Veritas Association
As most doctors know different bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites are responsible for the infectious process.[iv] In the first week of agranulocytosis[v], aerobic gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, S. epidermis, streptococci, enterococci, enterobacteria and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) are more common. After the second and third week, fungi, especially Candida species (albicans, tropicalis, parapsilosis, krusei), and parasites such as Pneumocystis carinii, are more common.
Heavy metals lead to chronic infections by fungi, bacteria, mycoplasma
and viruses. It is a big mistake to treat these infections without
changing the millieu. In all chronic disease heavy metals plays a role.
Health advocate Tom McGregor wrote, We have a tendency to think the body as clean, and, except for the common cold or a virus, that the blood is sterile, but this is the furthest thing from the truth. After observing live blood using a dark-field microscope, I know that even a healthy person's blood is packed with microorganisms. The blood has nutrients, sugars and oxygen, and the perfect environment and temperature for growth of microorganisms. If you have ever seen pond water through a microscope, you will have a sense of what the blood looks like. There is a constant war going on within the body. If the immune system is healthy, parasites are kept in check. However, in this modern-day lifestyle, where people eat lots of White Sugar , white flour, processed oil and fewer nutrients, the microorganisms flourish. The microorganisms are not the problem; it is their excretions into the blood. Imagine a million microorganisms urinating into your bloodstream. The metabolic byproduct can devastate healthy tissue and open the door to disease.
In todays world of chronic illness it is impossible to separate heavy metals from the infections we find in our patients. We need to get used to the idea that all our patients are coming to us with elevated total body burdens of heavy metals, toxins and pathogens. Cancer is a prime example of how heavy metal toxicty, free radical damage, pathogen infection, mitochondria dysfunction, immune system depression, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, genetic and cell wall damage and oxidative stress all come together into an end stage life threatening condition. Cancer treatment can be approached in many ways but the best way would be to address all these problems simultaneously.
Why cant the doctors and highly learned
men of the world find a cure for cancer?
Most practitioners in the field of chelation hope to lower total body burden of by lowering the toxins and heavy metals through detoxification and chelation. However experienced doctors like Dr. Garry Gordon has said, Increasingly I am convinced that the pathogen burden may be the most significant issue in a majority of patients, as we become increasingly toxic. Thus we may have to first deal with the pathogen burden in order to offer serious long-term benefits to our patients. We now know that infected tissue can hold heavy metals so tightly that even IV chelation fails unless the pathogens are dealt with effectively.
If our immune systems fail to react properly to outside agents,
to viruses, bacterium or fungus, the result is an infection.
Knowing the difference between different forms of infection is the first steps in knowing how to deal with the exponentially growing problem of chronic infections. New strategies and alternatives to Antibiotics are crucial needs for as we will see Antibiotics are causing a medical holocaust in both young and old alike. One would think that by the 21st century the medical community would understand the most basic information about Antibiotics and stop using them against viral and fungi infections. In reality one of the principle reasons antibiotics are dramatically overused is because they are given without any idea of what kind of micro-organism is in fact attacking the patient.
The field of microbiology is important because most of the cells in our bodies are not our own. From the invisible strands of fungi waiting to sprout between our toes, to the kilogram of bacterial matter in our guts, we are best viewed as walking 'superorganisms,' highly complex conglomerations of human cells, bacteria, fungi and viruses. More than 500 different species of bacteria exist in our bodies, making up more than 100 trillion cells. Because our bodies are made of only some several trillion human cells, we are somewhat outnumbered.
A virus is smaller than one cell. It lives within a cell (intracellular) to survive and derives its ability to multiply from its host cell. It is not responsive to antibiotics. A virus is not a living thing so antibiotics, intended to kill living things, are not effective. A virus cannot multiply outside a living host cell. There is no pharmaceutical treatment for a virus but Iodine is a nutritional substance that is effectively used as is ozone. The body will fight off most viruses over the course of time especially if it is supported to do so and this can be done with re-mineralization and chelation of heavy metals.
Dr. Gérard V. Sunnen speaks almost poetically about viruses when he says, Viruses are far from being static entities. As quintessential intracellular parasites they have developed, through millions of years of cohabitation with their hosts, astoundingly sophisticated structures, survival, and propagation mechanisms. They have adapted, modified their biological strategies, and evolved impressive genetic diversity and mutational capacity to cope with the changing ecology of planetary life.
Laboratory studies have shown that cytomegalovirus CMV can disrupt cellular processes with the potential to promote malignant growth, particularly affecting colorectal cancer-cell development. Dr. Charles S. Cobbs comments: "Human cytomegalovirus nucleic acids and proteins can be found that specifically localise to neoplastic cells in human colorectal polyps and adenocarcinomas, and virus infection can induce important oncogenic pathways in colon-cancer cells.[vi]
Bacteria are living things. They can reproduce all by themselves and do not need a host to survive. They are single-celled and reproduce by duplicating themselves. Bacteria are responsive to antibiotics. Bacteria are micro organisms that lack internal cell membranes. They are the most common and ancient organisms on earth. Most bacteria are less than 1μm in length. Microbiologists classify bacteria according to their basic shapes. Spherical bacteria are called cocci, corkscrew-shaped are called spirilla or spirochetes, rod-shaped are called bacilli, and threadlike bacteria are called filamentous. Some bacteria, called pleiomorphic, take various forms depending on conditions.
Chronic bacterial infections may lead to neoplasia. From infrequent examples such as carcinomas that may follow typhoid carriage-induced scarring and chronic draining sinuses in patients with osteomyelitis, we now know that chronic H. pylori infection is important in the development of gastric adenocarcinomas and possibly lymphomas. Microbial carcinogenesis no longer need be considered the exclusive realm of virologists.[vii]
Fungus is a saprophytic organism that can live by itself and does not need a host to survive. A fungus can be sexual or asexual (vegetative). It can reproduce on its own, outside the host's body, but once it is inside the host (ingested, etc.) it turns to sexual reproduction and depends upon its host. Fungi do not respond to antibiotics they respond to fungicides.[viii] Each day we inhale a multitude of harmful fungi. Our body throws most of this fungus off. But, if our immune system has been compromised in some way by stress or other factors, we are much more susceptible.
There are the many fungal mold related infections, diseases and
immune responses when they invade human or animal tissue.
Dr. MJ Dvmanov
Fungi (plural for fungus) are different from both viruses and bacteria in many ways. They are larger, plant-like organisms that lack chlorophyll (the substance that makes plants green and converts sunlight into energy). Since fungi do not have chlorophyll to make food, they have to absorb food from whatever they are growing on. Fungi can be very helpful brewing beer, making bread rise, decomposing trash but they can also be harmful if they steal nutrients from another living organism. When most people think of fungi they picture the mushrooms that we eat.
The main identifying characteristic of fungi is the makeup of their cell walls. Many contain a nitrogenous substance known as "chitin," which is not found in the cell walls of plants, but can be found in the outer shells of some crabs and mollusks. Most fungi are multicellular (made up of many cells), with the exception of the yeasts. The cells make up a network of branching tubes known as "hyphae," and a mass of hyphae is called a "mycelium."
The insides of the cells look a little different than bacterial cells. First of all, the genetic material is gathered together and enclosed by a membrane in what is called the "nucleus." Also, there are other structures called "organelles" in the cell that help the cell to function, such as mitochondria (converts energy), endoplasmic reticulum (ER) (makes complex proteins), and other organelles. The Golgi apparatus forms many types of proteins and enzymes. Lysosomes contain enzymes and help digest nutrients. Centrioles are necessary for proper division of the cell. Both bacteria and fungi have ribosomes, but those of the bacteria are smaller in size and also reproduce differently.

Yeasts (fungi) are a family of organisms that occur everywhere in nature. Similar to all other fungi, yeasts thrive in warm and moist areas, which include the human intestines, and in all humans the yeast thrives normally in the intestinal tract, it spread and over population being checked by the immune system. When the immune system is impaired the fungus grows and multiplies out of bounds and hence candidiasis results. One of the reasons immune system function is impaired is by the improper use of Antibiotic drugs.
The most well known yeast is Candida albicans, a common inhabitant of the human intestinal tract, skin and vagina. Normally C.albicans is kept in balance by our so-called beneficial microflora. Alteration of this balance can result in the Candida proliferating out of control. This may result in the condition known as Candidiasis (moniliasis), also known as Thrush. There are many species of the genus Candida that cause disease. The infections caused by all species of Candida are called candidiasis.
Generally, either low temperature or pH
favors the development of a budding yeast.
Candida albicans is an endogenous organism. It can be found in 40-80% of human beings. It is present in the mouth, gut, and vagina. It may be present as a commensal or a pathogenic organism. Infections with Candida usually occur when a patient has some alteration in cellular immunity, normal flora or normal physiology. Patients with decreased cellular immunity have decreased resistance to fungal infections. Prolonged Antibiotic or steroid therapy destroys the balance of normal flora in the intestine allowing the endogenous Candida to overcome the host. Invasive procedures, such as cardiac surgery and indwelling catheters, produce alterations in host physiology and some of these patients develop Candida infections.
The harm done by Candida results from its waste product, acetaldehyde, which in turn can affect the neurological, endocrine and immune systems. Few chemicals can create as much havoc in the body as acetaldehydes. Acetaldehydes accumulate in the brain, spinal cord, joints, muscles and poison tissues.
Most microorganisms, including Candida, live on sugar. The more Sugar they get, the more they propagate. The problem is that everything turns to Sugar except protein, and even juice fasting supplies sugars to the blood. Water Fasting was thought to be the solution until oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini came along and started treating Candida with sodium bicarbonate. As we shall see in other chapters Dr. Simoncini defines cancer as a yeast/fungus infection and he speaks rather strongly about feeding Sugar to cancer patients first because the cells are starving for energy and secondly because the sugar will help the bicarbonate enter the cancer cells/tumors and kill them.
Yeast and other microscopic fungal organisms compose a normal part of the body's internal ecology. They are normally well tolerated by a healthy immunity. If they increase in number, however, they cause additional stress to the immune system. It is widely recognized that mold, including yeast and fungi, are among the most allergic of environmental exposures, reports Dr. Elmer M. Cranton. Many pharmacological, dietary, environmental and life-style factors encourage growth of yeast in bodies of people in industrialized countries. When yeast overgrowth becomes obvious, it is diagnosed as an infection and treated appropriately with anti-fungal medicines. More commonly, however, yeast colonization increases, especially in the large intestine, but is not adequate to diagnose as an infection. It is an ecological imbalance in the body that adds to total load on the immune system, continues Dr. Cranton.
Yeast is well recognized to cause vaginitis in women, diaper rash and thrush in infants. Yeast and fungus are also common causes of other skin infections including athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, paronychia, intertrigo, anal itching, Seborrhea (dandruff), tinea versicolor and onychomycosis (causing fingernail and toenail deformities). Those conditions are rarely considered serious, although many women troubled by persistent or recurrent vaginitis would state otherwise.
Fungal toxins are constantly being absorbed from toxin-producing fungi living in the host, particularly in the gut. An increased fungal growth/toxin production is caused by diets high in sugar, fruit, oils, fats, and fermented foods such as beer, wine, bread and cheese. A decreased fungal growth/toxin production is due to the anti-fungal action of fish/fish oils, garlic, onion, herbs, spices, soya, yogurt and green vegetables. Toxicity caused by mycotoxins is significantly reduced by increasing the amount of fiber in the diet, reports Dr. A.V. Costantini from the W.H.O.
It is not widely recognized that those conditions often occur in patients with previously weakened immune system, resulting in lowered resistance to yeast infection. The most common and overlooked site for yeast proliferation is the large intestine. Constipation is commonly caused by yeast. Yeast in the colon release large amounts of allergens, toxins and other hormonally active substances into the circulation, without raising a suspicion of where the problems are coming from.
Although it most frequently infects the skin and mucosae, Candida can cause pneumonia, septicemia or endocarditis in the immuno-compromised patient. The establishment of infection with Candida species appears to be a property of the host - not the organism. The more debilitated the host, the more invasive the disease.
Infections diseases caused by the growth of fungi in or on the body are common. In most healthy people fungal infections are mild, involving only the skin, hair, nails, or other superficial sites, and they clear up spontaneously. They include the familiar ringworm and athlete's foot. In someone with an impaired immune system, however, such infections, called dermatophytoses, can persist for long periods. The organisms causing dermatophytoses belong to the genera Microsporum, Epidermophyton, and Trichophyton. This has been the classic view of fungi infections but it has changed dramatically as immune system dysfunction has become the norm not the exception. The big winners today in terms of destroyers of health are fungus and yeasts. They are taking up residence and are now a modern day plague infecting human pysiology in ways not clearly seen. The hugely blind mistake allopathic has made in ignoring fungus and yeast infections will bring up the iatrogenic death and disease statistics by a score or two.
Virsues, bacteria, fungus and yeast proliferate and
evolve in compromised biological environments.
Bacteria, primarily in the coccus-like form in microscopic
tissue sections, have also been found in various forms of cancer.
Mold can trigger an allergic reaction and asthma in sensitized individuals (repeated exposure to mold or mold spores sometimes causes previously non-sensitive individuals to become sensitized). About 15 million Americans are allergic to mold. The most common reactions are flu-like symptoms and asthma. Those with chronic lung or immune problems are at risk for more serious reactions like fever, lung infections and a pneumonia-like illness.
The famous Russian microbiologist N. A. Krasilnikov, in his seminal book, Soil Microorganisms and Higher Plants, remarks about the classification of bacteria, particularly the "actinomycetes" (the bacteria-like and fungal-like microbes. He writes: The classification of microorganisms is very unsatisfactory. There is no common principle of classification in microbiology. The classification of bacteria and actinomycetes is especially inadequate. This can be explained by the peculiarity of those organisms, the simplicity of their structure and growth and lack of external properties for differentiation.
In looking at live blood, you can clearly "see" that there are forms that
look like bacteria, microorganisms and parasites that not only are in
the blood, but that over time can grow and can change their shapes.
Dr. Robert Young asserts that microforms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi are all the same organism at various stages of their evolution.[ix] The first stage of its evolution, which is the primitive stage, is what medical Science calls a virus. Viruses are apathological. They are actually composed of a microzyme at the core that is protein encapsulated. As the biological environment becomes overly-acidified, the primitive stage evolves to the intermediate stage, and this is bacterial. This culminates in the final stage which includes the yeasts, fungi and moulds. These forms proliferate and evolve in a compromised biological environment such as acidified blood and tissues. Try a very simple experiment: what happens when you pull the plug on your refrigerator? What appears first? The bacterial forms, then the yeasts, funguses and moulds, and all of a sudden everything just decays, which is what occurs in these final anatomical phases.[x]
The idea that a proposed cancer germ could have more than
one form is a threat to doctors and some microbiologists.
Indeed the cancer germ has been described as having a
virus like and fungus-like, as well as mycoplasma-like phase.
Dr. Alan Cantwell
The Cancer Microbe
The concept of pleomorphism, the ability of microorganisms to change has led different medical scientists to describe the infectious aspect (cancer microbes) of cancer in different ways. Some people consider viruses to be of the most concern in provoking cancer, but others call cancer provoking microbes fungus or mold and others name the infectious agent as an acid-fast bacteria (which mutated into or from a fungus) or mycobacterium. According to Dr. Virginia Livingston cancer is caused by pleomorphic, cell wall deficient bacteria. The various forms of the organism range in size from submicroscopic virus-like forms, up to the size of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. In culture and in tissue the bacterial forms are variably 'acid-fast' (having a staining quality like TB bacteria).
Understanding pleomorphism is essential to the understanding
of cancer and its cure, and the cure of many other diseases.
In 1975, using the electron microscope, Parmley et al. showed "microorganism-like structures" in lymph nodes in some untreated patients with Hodgkin's disease. These round forms with "internal composition" were found within and outside of the cells and resembled mycoplasma and cell wall deficient bacteria, suggesting "subclinical infection."[xi] Swiss oncologist Christian Sauter and pathologist Michael Kurrer discovered "intercellular rods" and "spheres" in six Hodgkin's disease patients, by use of a special PAS stain, a traditional stain used to detect fungal infection of tissues.[xii]
When blood pH is shifted out of its narrow range, these tiny
microorganisms can no longer live. In order to survive, they change
to a form which can survive. It is these new forms that can become aggressive, parasitic and pathogenic agents within the blood.
Dr. MJ Dvmanov, a professor of medical mycology says, "Medical mycologists and physicians understand that yeasts such as the common Candidas are just a different form of the same fungi. There are many fungal molds that can turn into a yeast and some of these yeasts turn into a mold. We see this routinely in the laboratory. It is a phenomenon called dimorphism, some of these fungi will also take on additional forms and are known as pleomorphs. This has been observed for over a 100 years and we now fully understood how and why these various morphologies come into being. "
The job of Candida albicans is to recognize and destroy harmful bacteria: Without it, we would be defenseless against many pathogenic bacteria. If the number of friendly bacteria is decreased, the immune system is weakened, or other conditions for yeast proliferation occur (diet high in sugar, improper pH in the digestive system) Candida albicans will shift from yeast form to mycelial fungal form and start to invade the body. In the yeast state, Candida is a non-invasive, sugar-fermenting organism, while in fungal state it is invasive and can produce rhizoids, very long root-like structures. Rhizoids can penetrate mucosa or intestinal walls, leaving microscopic holes allowing toxins, undigested food particles and bacteria and yeast to enter the bloodstream. This condition is known as Leaky Gut Syndrome and that is an explanation for many food and environmental allergies.
Over the past 100 years there has been much research implicating a microbe as, not the initial cause, but as the final state of cancer. Final cause meaning tumors are not distinquishable from the infections that inhabit them. Dr. Royal Rife demonstrated that for some cases of cancer a virus was the initial cause of cancer because some types of viruses can penetrate and get inside the normal cells. Rife claimed that the microbe involved in cancer changed forms depending on the terrain it lived in. Pleomorphic means that a virus and bacteria may be different forms of the same microbe.
These microscopic invaders get their energy from blood sugars which
our bodies are supposed to be using, and they grow and multiply
by eating our bodies' proteins. Their needs can turn into our cravings.
These bacteria are ubiquitous and exist in the blood and tissues of all human beings, part of the basic fabric of life. Modern medicine refuses to acknowledge the obvious, that viruses, bacteria and fungus are omipresent[xiii] and are just waiting for the right conditions in which to begin rapid multiplication. We see this process universally with in death of tissues or in spoiled food. Rot is an underlying biological mechanism inherent in all earthly species being the natural process of biological decay. In terms of human physiology in the absence of a protective immune response, cell wall deficient bacteria may become pathogenic and foster the development of cancer and many other diseases of unknown etiology. Cancer cells with their defective cell physiology would certainly create fertile soil for the uncontrolled expansion of bacteria, fungi and viruses, drawing down upon themselves the full wrath of these infectious agents. How then can we separate the cancer from the infection when the process would be continuous? Certainly we know that cancer patients are highly prone to bacterial infection.
Microbiologists do not recognize or accept the various growth
forms and the bacterial 'life cycle' proposed by various cancer
microbe workers. Most bacteriologists do not accept the idea
of a bacterium changing from a coccus to a rod, or to a fungus.
Dr. Alan Cantwell
Under appropriate conditions, bacteria can lose their cell wall and become amorphous, smaller, highly pleomorphic cell-wall deficient forms. Under suitable conditions, mycoplasma can enlarge to giant-sized forms (Large bodies) resembling fungal and spore-like forms. It is vital to be aware of and to recognize such unusual and hard-to-detect forms in tissue microscopic sections because, in my experience, this mycoplasmal form is the form the cancer microbe takes inside the body in human disease. Due to their small size, Mycobacteria form a bridge between (larger) bacteria and smaller) viruses. Microbiologists love to separate (and classify) viruses, bacteria, mycoplasma, and fungi, as distinct entities. In fact, there is interplay between all of them. It is well-known that bacteria can be infected with viruses. Nevertheless, scientists cannot seem to understand how microbes can change into virus-like, mycoplasma-like and fungus-like infectious agents, says Dr. Cantwell.
Besides inhalation, people can become exposed to mold
through skin contact and eating moldy food. Toxic molds
can produce several toxic chemicals called mycotoxins that
can damage your health. These chemicals are present on the
spores and small mold fragments that are released into the air.
Over a hundred years ago Dr. William Russell, a pathologist in the School of Medicine at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh, outlined his histopathologic findings of a characteristic organism of cancer that he observed microscopically in fuchsine-stained tissue sections from all forms of cancer that he examined, as well as in certain cases of tuberculosis, syphilis and skin infection. The parasite was seen within the tissue cells (intracellular) and outside the cells (extracellular). The size of Russells parasite ranged from barely visible, up to half again as large as a red blood corpuscle. The largest round forms were easily seen microscopically. The large size of some of these bodies suggested a fungal or yeast-like parasite.
My work is based on the conviction, supported by many
years of observations, comparisons and experiences, that
the necessary and sufficient cause of the tumour is to be
sought in the vast world of the fungi, the most adaptable,
aggressive and evolved micro-organisms known in nature.
Dr. Tullio Sumancini
Microbes are partially classified in microbiology according to size, continues Dr. Cantwell. Viruses are submicroscopic and cannot be visualized with an ordinary light microscope. Unlike bacteria, viruses can only replicate inside a cell. Bacteria can be seen microscopically, but smaller submicroscopic and filterable bacterial forms (now known as nanobacteria) are also known. Fungi and yeast forms are much larger than bacteria, and mold can obviously be seen with the naked eye. Larger Russell bodies are indeed similar in size to certain spore forms of fungi. However, what is generally not appreciated is that bacteria can grow into fungal-sized large bodies, depending on certain laboratory conditions.
Dr. Young states that all illness is but this one constitutional
disease, its result is mycotoxicoses - toxicity caused by
mycotic infection, or in other words, a yeast and fungus
infection - the great decomposers of living and dead bodies.
A German biologist, Ernest Haeckele (1834-1919), departing from the Linnaeian concept that makes for two great kingdoms of living things (vegetable and animal) denounced the difficulties of categorising all those microscopic organisms which, because of their characteristics and properties, could not be attributed to either the vegetable or animal kingdom. For these organisms, he proposed a third kingdom, called Protists.
"This vast and complex world includes a range of entities beginning with those that have sub-cellular structure -- existing at the limits of life -- such as viroids and viruses, moving through the mycoplasms, to finally, organisms of greater organisation: bacteria, actinomycetes, mixomycetes, fungi, protozoa, and perhaps even some microscopic algae."
Blood is under pH control. Ideally it has a pH in a narrow range around 7.3, which is slightly alkaline. A pH around 7.3 is the perfect environment where the normal pathogens in the blood live in harmony with the body. But when blood pH is disturbed and is shifted out of that narrow range, native microorganisms, in order to survive would change to a form which can survive. It is these new forms that become aggressive, parasitic and pathogenic agents within the blood. Dr. Guenther Enderlein, a German bacteriologist, contended there are thousands of forms and many of these are able to overcome the body's defense mechanisms, causing multiple disease situations. When our body's blood pH changes away from the ideal, it can become an environment for opportunistic microorganisms to grow and flourish, what could be simpler to understand.
Dr. Simoncini suggests, Fungi can well have their own kingdom because of the absence of photosynthetic pigmentation, the ability to be mono-cellular, and multi-cellular, and, finally, their possession of a distinct nucleus. Additionally, fungi possess a property that is strange when compared to all other micro-organisms: the ability to have a basic microscopic structure (hypha) with a simultaneous tendency to grow to remarkable dimensions (up to several kilograms), keeping unchanged the capacity to adapt and reproduce at any size. From this point of view, therefore, fungi cannot be considered true organisms, but cellular aggregates sui generis with an organismic behaviour, since each cell maintains its survival and reproductive potential intact regardless of the structure in which it exists.
Several antifungal agents are available to treat these infections, but from a pharmaceutical point of view it has been much more difficult for scientists to create successful antifungal drugs than antibacterial drugs because the cells of fungi are much closer in structure to the cells of animals than are bacteria. In the attempts to create pharmaceuticals it is hard to find an agent that will kill the fungal cells and leave the animal cells unharmed. The most successful drugs that have been created prevent the formation of chitin, and therefore prevent the fungus from creating new cell walls and spreading. The cell wall is the only structure that is not shared by the animal and fungal cells.
Other drugs bind to specific fungal proteins and prevent growth. Unfortunately, many of the drugs available are only fungistatic, meaning they can only prevent further growth rather than fungicidal, meaning to kill the fungus. Many of the drugs used for serious fungal infections have potentially toxic side effects. In the next chapters we will discover an exciting natural treatment for fungus and yeasts, sodium bicarbonate.
Chemotherapy and radiation can actually
enhance existing fungal and yeast infections.[xiv]
"Seaweeds (iodine) have exceptional value in the treatment of candida overgrowth. They contain selenium and (all the) other minerals necessary for rebuilding immunity; furthermore the rich Iodine content is used by enzymes in the body to produce iodine-charged free radicals which deactivate yeasts. Before the advent of anti-fungal drugs, Iodine was the standard medical treatment for yeasts. When candidiasis is complicated with tumours or cancers, then seaweed is of additional benefit. Salt should normally be restricted during candida overgrowth".[xv]
Sea greens help to stop vaginal infections: Iodine-rich sea plants are effective against a wide range of organisms like trichomonas, candida and Chlamydia. A douche solution with 1 tbsp dried sea plants to 1 qt water, used 2x daily for 7-14 days, is effective against most of these pathogens.
Povidone iodine effervescent tablet has marked germicidal efficacy
and is an ideal disinfectant. Povidone iodine solutions containing
different available iodine is efficient in killing staphylococcus
aureus, escherichia coli, and candida albicans, respectively.[xvi]

[v] Agranulocytosis is characterized by a greatly decreased number of circulating neutrophils. Severe neutropenia is the term usually applied to patients with fewer than 500 neutrophils per microliter (including bands). Agranulocytosis usually refers to patients with fewer than 100 neutrophils per microliter. The reduced number of neutrophils makes patients extremely vulnerable to infection. Cardinal symptoms include fever, sepsis, and other manifestations of infection. Causes can include drugs, chemicals, infective agents, ionizing radiation, immune mechanisms, and heritable genetic aberrations.

[viii] An agent that kills or inhibits fungi, or a compound that inhibits either a dermatomycosis like ringworm or athlete's foot, or one that inhibits Candida albicans either externally as a douche or internally as a systemic antifungal. Typical Examples: Nystatin, griseofulvin, Tabebuia.
[ix] In looking at live blood, you can clearly "see" that there are bacteria, microorganisms and parasites that are not only in the blood, but over time they grow, can change their shape, and research has proven, they can become pathogenic (disease producing). This ability of microorganisms to change is the concept of pleomorphism. Understanding this concept is also essential to the understanding of cancer and its cure, and the cure of many other diseases.

[xiii] Essentially, every person on earth has in their body many ultra small microbes that have been called by different names: "somatid" (per Gaston Naessens) or "microzyma" (per Antoine Béchamp and the term used by Robert O. Young) or "bion" (per Wilhelm Reich) or "protit" (per Gűnther Enderlein). These ultra small creatures can be thought of as a virus in hibernation. When the inner terrain of the body changes these ultra small microbes change forms. Gaston Naessens, who, like Royal Rife, invented a superb microscope, claimed there were 16 different stages these microbes go through from: virus to yeast to fungal to bacteria and others. While many somatids are already in the body of every human being, under ideal conditions the microbe is in hibernation and is not causing any problems. However, once the microbe, now in a different form because of changes in the inner terrain, gets inside of a normal cell, there are metabolism changes that take place inside the cell, leading to the end result of cancer. How this may happen will be described below. There are a wide, wide variety of factors (such as carcinogens), that allow this microbe, which is already in the body and is by then in the form of a yeast, fungus, mould or bacteria, to get inside of a normal cell.
