Does Chemotherapy & Radiation Actually Make Cancer More Malignant?

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in more developed countries. Yet, with the proliferation of conventional and non-conventional treatments, we act as if we are still in the Middle Ages. Specifically, when it comes to generating a cure for this disease.

Carcinogens in Conventional Cancer Treatments

There is a humongous failure of what they call conventional cancer treatments right now, particularly chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Why is this so? Because both are basically carcinogenic treatments.

The problem stems from the fact that both chemotherapy and radiotherapy are very effective in damaging the DNA within cells. Of course, the actual impact of these two treatments will focus on not just the cancerous cells but also the healthy ones as well.

Collateral damage posed by chemotherapy?

There will always be “collateral damage” to the patient when it comes to conventional treatments. The question now is “what is the acceptable level of harm” to the patient?

When it comes to chemotherapy or radiotherapy, there is NO SUCH THING as “acceptable level of harm”. Exposing yourself in dangerous chemicals of chemotherapy, you are actually inviting genotoxic agents in your body to create “collateral damage”. Is there a substance which can practice “selective cytotoxicity” which is the process of affecting drastically the “bad cancerous cells” and leaving the “good cells” still intact?

Yes, there are substances which target only bad cancerous cells and leave the good cells intact! These are inherent characteristics of NATURAL ANTI-CANCER COMPOUNDS and whole plant extracts. Fruit-derived compounds from the graviola plant (guyabano in Tagalog, guyabanana in South America, etc.) indicate that its fruit extract is 10,000 times more effective at killing cancer cells. Compared to the lethal anti-cancer drug Adriamycin, our graviola or guyabano is highly impactful and highly selective in picking out only cancerous cells to destroy, leaving the good, normal cells to thrive in the body.

Let’s take the case of the anti-cancer drug Tamoxifen. Classified by the World Health Organization as a human carcinogen. It is recognized to have over two dozen side effects to health. However, it is still being used as a first-line treatment for certain types of breast cancer. Now is there sense to this? Poisoning yourself back to health?

Tamoxifen and chemotherapy resistance are fast becoming problems for cancer treatment. Like some specific pathogenic bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics after some time, the body’s pathogens become resistant to chemo agents after a certain period of time, leading to less effectivity for killing cancerous cells in the long-term.

Radiotherapy – a one-way ticket to secondary cancers?

Radiotherapy has one particular fault, and that is it might induce secondary cancers along with other adverse effects. A woman who might have been irradiated for breast cancer might develop lung cancer as well.

This is attributed to the tumor, for instance, breast cancer tumors increase their ability to replicate and divide due to being exposed to radiation therapy. And although the radiation might kill the cancer cells initially, a radiation therapy treatment may make certain cells more radiation-resistant and even aggressive, leading to higher malignancy for the tumor cells.

So now we can understand how radiotherapy and chemotherapy may drive cancer cells into greater malignancy and compromise the person’s immune system (because of damage to the patient’s bone marrow and directly harming his/her immune cells). This is so apparent with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancers on the planet now

Because let’s face it – if you were exposed to a blast of chemicals and radiation, wouldn’t your cells flee and relocate somewhere else in your body to thrive? That is the case with metastasis of the cancer to other parts of the body, usually the lymph nodes.

With such conventional cancer treatments that fail to improve the quality of life of those who undergo it.  In fact, reducing the lifespan of the patient instead of lengthening it, cancer victims are on the lookout for safe, effective, affordable or inexpensive treatments.

Turmeric as a safe, all-natural, and effective cancer treatment

Even though U.S. law currently forbids the medicinal use of natural substances, we have turmeric being used as far back as thousands of years in India as part of Ayurvedic medicine. That includes its active ingredient which is curcumin. In fact, turmeric has been getting a lot of attention with 4,588 references to it on the National Library of Medicine’s database and studies performed on the effectivity of turmeric in addressing or curing cancer cases.

See the table below:


Studies indicate that curcumin has both “chemoprotective and chemosensitizing properties”. It has positive cancer-killing attributes( without dangerous side effects) plus it protects healthy cells without harming them unlike in chemotherapy.

So are you convinced that chemotherapy and radiation therapy promote rather than kill cancer-causing cells? Share your experience or information in the comments section below!
