Conspiracy Theory...

One interesting thing about cancer is that many people outside the medical field without cancer treatment experience,  have very strong opinions about treatment, testing, medications, wigs,  and other related items.  I have no problem with people sharing their opinions because if I don't agree, I just tune them out and work on a mental grocery list or other very important items.  However, yesterday, someone who has never had breast cancer, shared her theory of cancer with me, and I was absolutely shocked!  I do not know from what planet she comes, but she was way, way, way off base. 

Let me set up the situation for the conversation...
Yesterday I walked around town for 6 hours, following up on letters I sent to local businesses about donating to the American Cancer Society via 50 SHADES OF PINK.  So far I have donations from 18 business in Manchester and Essex:  Allen's Pharmacy, Cala's, Christine's Coffee Cup, Costello Construction, Cross Towing,  Found Objects, Four Season's Cleaners, The Landing,  Logue Insurance, Mahri's, Manchester Electric, Manchester Hardware, Mimi, Nor'east Cleaners, Remco Corporation, Standley's Garage, The White Lilac, and Zak's.  In most cases, it was fun to stop and chat with different people.  In 6 hours, I only covered 23 of 70 business, and this was without a break.  As you can surmise, some stops entailed a serious volume of chat.

Naturally, at all the businesses I had a cancer-related conversation.  One woman I spoke to told me that she does not believe in mammograms because they are often the cause of cancer.  Logically, I though she was concerned about the radiation from the x-ray.  But when I asked about radiation concerns, she said no, that it was the pressure of the plates during the mammogram that can cause cancer.  What? - I thought  "Really, are you kidding?"  Then she drifted way beyond left field when she told me that some believe there is a conspiracy theory behind cancer, and that doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies are"in it" together.  What? What?? What???  She actually believes that cures for cancer have not been discovered because there is too much money involved.  What????  Inside I was thinking, "You are a total whack job!  Please don't spread these complete lies to others because someone even more crazy than your might actually believe your crap."  Outside I said, "I believe that my oncologist, radiation oncologist, and surgeons would be thrilled if they had fewer patients due to discoveries of cures."  Then I slowly backed away.  And, by the way, she did not donate to the American Cancer Society...probably because they are at the ring leader of this whole cancer conspiracy.

Whacky thought of the day...
What do you do when someone says something totally outrageous and crazy?  Do you challenge them, or do you realize that crazy people are just crazy, so you say nothing?

  1. Cancer researchers and their families get cancer too, so of course they'd want to find cures? Cancer is a wide collection of diseases that are all treated differently? Cancer is Big Business. Cancer is cured. But cancer researchers and pharmaceutical companies are keeping the cure a secret because they're making so much money. Big Pharma! The truth is that a large number of very prominent conspiracy theories have turned out to actually be true. Cancer researchers ignore iron-cancer information-1905-2014. Baba Vanga (Vangelia Dimitrova) was a blind Bulgarian mystic, clairvoyant and herbalist. Researchers claim that Vanga foretold the break-up of the Soviet Union, the Chernobyl disaster, the date of Stalin's death, the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk, and the September 11 attacks. In 1994, Vanga predicted: A day will come and cancer will be chained in iron! A cure, which shall cure people from this illness, must contain the iron, because this element is decreasing in the human organism. The Father of Oncology (Vadim Shapoval) says that a cell needs to have iron overload (when excess iron accumulates within cellular organelles) before it becomes cancerous. In inherited forms of cancer, parents give their sons and daughters abnormal iron metabolism within various organs. Iron disorders (sickle cell disease, thalassemia, hemochromatosis, etc.) are inherited and can be confirmed with genetic testing. Genes that maintain iron homeostasis may facilitate iron uptake, storage or egress, or the regulation of any of these processes. The spectrum of known disorders of iron metabolism has expanded dramatically over the past years. Any cancer is caused by iron-related genes (numerous genes directly/indirectly involved in iron metabolism / hereditary cancers) and iron-related events (when excess iron accumulates within the cells, tissues, and organs due to various carcinogenic lifestyle events / nutrition, tobacco use, physical activity, traumatic injuries, infections, etc. / sporadic cancers). According to the Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory (Theory from the Old Testament; Iron Conception), any human cell should be interpreted: 1) as a society of atoms and molecules; 2) as a society of organelles; 3) as a society of dia-, para-, superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles that have certain local magnetic contacts. Cancer occurs through excessive accumulation of superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles within cancerous cells. Intracellular molecules FeO;Fe2O3;Fe3O4 are the main creators of intracellular superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles that produce (magnetically) genomic rearrangements, chaotic chromosomal aberrations and chromothripsis within cancerous cells. Any cancer is a subtle iron disease; intracellular superpara-ferri-ferromagnetic 'infection'. Magnetism (a class of physical phenomena; the force of attraction or repulsion between nano-objects) causes cancer. Ceramic needles can suppress any tumors and large metastases; can quickly create harmless infiltrations (harmless necroses; deposits of cells that die; benign capsules); can enter solution [sulfur (2%) + olive oil (98%); 36.6C - 39.0C] to tumors and large metastases. Anti-iron slow blood loss (even 75%) [hemoglobin control], anti-iron goat’s milk diet and anti-iron drinking water containing hydrogen sulfide can neutralize any micro-metastases and isolated tumor cells.
