Medicine or Chemical Warfare?
WARNING: Leukeran (chlorambucil) can severely suppress
bone marrow function. Chlorambucil is a carcinogen in humans.
Mustard gas causes internal and external bleeding and attacks the bronchial tubes, stripping off the mucous membrane. This is extremely painful and most soldiers had to be strapped to their beds. It usually took a person four or five weeks to die of mustard gas poisoning. On the effects of mustard gas, one nurse, Vera Brittain, wrote:
"Sometimes in the middle of the night we have to turn people out of bed and make them sleep on the floor to make room for the more seriously ill ones who have come down from the line. We have heaps of gassed cases at present: there are 10 in this ward alone. I wish those people who write so glibly about this being a holy war, and the orators who talk so much about going on, no matter how long the war lasts and what it may mean, could see a case - to say nothing of 10 cases of mustard gas in its early stages - could see the poor things all burnt and blistered all over with great suppurating blisters, with blind eyes - sometimes temporarily, sometimes permanently - all sticky and stuck together, and always fighting for breath, their voices a whisper, saying their throats are closing and they know they are going to choke."
The scientists were right; exposure to these gases did kill cancerous tissue, but, as Ralph Moss states in his book Questioning Chemotherapy:
"The amount of toxic chemicals needed to kill
every last cancer cell was found to kill the patient long before it eliminated
"Almost without exception, every drug developed for four decades that is active against cancer has produced side-effects that are reminiscent of the outgrowth of these agents from research on chemical warfare."
Ralph Moss again:
In an article entitled "Chemotherapy: Snake-Oil Remedy?" Dr Martin F Shapiro explained that while "…some oncologists inform their patients of the lack of evidence that treatments work, others may well be misled by scientific papers that express unwarranted optimism about chemotherapy. Still others respond to an economic incentive. Physicians can earn much more money running active chemotherapy practices than they can providing solace and relief to dying patients and their families."
WARNING: Alkeran (melphalan) should be administered under the supervision of a qualified physician experienced in the use of cancer chemotherapeutic agents. Severe bone marrow suppression with resulting infection or bleeding may occur. Melphalan is leukemogenic in humans. Melphalan produces chromosomal aberrations in vitro and in vivo and, therefore, should be considered potentially mutagenic in humans.
DESCRIPTION: ALKERAN (melphalan), also known as L-phenylalanine mustard, phenylalanine mustard, L-PAM, or L-sarcolysin, is a phenylalanine derivative of nitrogen mustard.…
And Glaxo's leukaemia drug Leukeran has the following label attached to the bottle:
WARNING: Leukeran (chlorambucil) can severely suppress bone marrow function. Chlorambucil is a carcinogen in humans.
Danger! Toxic spill!
Goggles can be reprocessed and are bagged separately in a zip-lock bag and sent to pharmacy with the chemo spill kit after they are removed. The chemo waste bags must be sealed securely and disposed of in the biohazard waste containers. A "Medication Incident Report" must be filled out after any chemotherapy spill.
If skin comes in to contact with the drug:
· Remove gloves and protective clothing.
This is what is pumped into the patient undergoing conventional chemotherapy treatment. We are reminded of Professor Charles Mathe, who stated:
"If I contracted cancer, I would never go to a standard cancer treatment centre. Cancer victims who live far from such centres have a chance."
Are these people really dying
"I got to see her in only the last stage of her illness when she kept getting repeated bronchitis. The steroids she was on not only lowered her immune system but collapsed her vertebrae so that her spine curved and her chin was on her chest and she could not breathe. She really died of respiratory failure due to her curvature of the spine, due to her steroid treatment, but I signed the death certificate myeloma. It made me wonder at the time how often the true cause of death is recorded, i.e. the treatment and not the underlying illness."
How much longer can we continue to sanction chemotherapy and similar toxic interventions as frontline cancer treatments? And why aren't we asking more questions of establishment medicine? In the face of such disastrous therapeutics, what keeps us in our current state of passivity? (c) Copyright 2003 Steven Ransom
