What happened to this knowledge?!?

In 1955 Dr. Warburg gave a lecture to the German Committee for Cancer Control. It was then published in “Science” in 1956. It was also translated from German to English for the U.S. Dep’t of Health, Education & Welfare, the American Public Health Service and the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD.

I have no idea what the American institutes did with this information, or what the German government did with it either. I can only conclude that neither government had any idea of the significance of Warburg’s cancer discoveries.

At that time, no practical preventive regimens or treatments using these discoveries had been developed, so it is somewhat understandable that the information would have been “shelved”. Unfortunately for millions of people, it was kept there.

Even by 1985 it still wasn’t brought back into the public domain for the American researchers to be made aware of. Americans at the NIH (National Institute of Health) translated Dr. Warburg’s paper, so there is no doubt that American scientists knew about this work.

In this presentation, Warburg clearly, and very systematically explained the “origin of cancer cells”. This is, in fact what his discussion/publication was entitled.

Just to briefly summarize his landmark discoveries, Warburg explained that:

1. Cancer cells obtain the majority of their energy through a completely different mechanism than a normal cell – a reversal of respiration energy and fermentation energy magnitudes.

2. All cancer cells have first suffered damaged respiration.

3. Damage to the respiration is irreversible; once created, a cancer cell can NEVER return to normal. It is a renegade forever and must be destroyed.

4. It is a simple deficiency of oxygen that destroys a cell’s respiration.

5. Without sufficient oxygen, cell structure vanishes.

6. Undeniably, no matter what the cause of oxygen deprivation, the result is the same – damage to cell respiration, causing cancer.

7. Oxygen deficiency over a 2.5 year period (even if only intermittent) as a cause of cancer was conclusively shown in 1953 in America.

8. Chronic intermittent oxygen deficiency plays a greater role in cancer development than chronic interruption of cell respiration by poisoning because poisoning kills the cell.

9. Frequent small doses of poisons or oxygen deficiency keep adding up until a threshold is reached and damage is beyond repair.

Don’t you wish this information was made known to the researchers way back in 1985 or sooner? Imagine how much further along we would be in the “war against cancer”!

The Ineffectiveness of Current Cancer Cures

February 27, 2011 Leave a comment

An article titled “Cancer Cure Search Detoured by Reality of Resilient Disease” appeared in the ‘Houston Chronicle’ in July, 2003. In it, writer Daniel G. Haney was courageous enough to state the actual state of affairs regarding the “War Against Cancer”. In it he brought out important, little-acknowledged facts concerning the current dismaying “prognosis” for a cure for cancer.

“Not long ago, the defeat of cancer seemed inevitable… no more chemotherapy, the thinking went. No more horrid side effects… Some now wonder whether malignancy will ever be reliably and predictably cured.

“The dearth of substantial impact so far suggests the fight against cancer wil continue to be a tedious slog, and victories will be scored in weeks or months of extra life, not years.

“… Several [drugs] have made it through testing, but despite their apparent bull’s-eye hits, lasting results are rare. Instead, these new drugs turn out to be about as effective – or as powerless – as old-line chemotherapy [ineffective long-term]. Aimed at the major forms of cancer, they work spectacularly for a lucky few and modestly for some. But for most? NOT AT ALL.

“… ‘It’s a much more complicated problem than anyone ever appreciated’, says Dr. Leonard Saltz, a colon cancer expert at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. ‘It will, unfortunately, be with us for a long time.’

“… scientists are even rethinking the goal of cancer research.

“”‘Society as a whole, and most of the medical profession, have a wrong understanding we’ll wake up one morning and find out cancer is cured. It won’t happen. The public should give it up,’ says Dr. Craig henderson, a breast cancer specialist at the University of California, San Francisco, and president of Access Oncology, a drug developer…’

This was reported back in 2003. Nothing has changed since then.

For those of you who subscribe to the Medscape Today newsletter or visit the website and read the medical news on a daily basis (which you can get at http://www.medscape.com/medscapetoday), you will know that even though nearly 10 years have passed since the above information was published, NOTHING HAS CHANGED. The FDA continues to allow Big Pharma to register their “blockbuster cancer drugs”, based on “potentially phenomenal results” (using weasel words like ‘may’, ‘possibly’, ‘have the potential to perhaps’, etc.), only to request further clinical trials due to ‘insufficient data’ showing the actual positive benefits compared to current cancer drugs already established in the market, or pull them all together due to their ineffectiveness.

Parent to Derivative EFA Ratios – The conversion is MUCH LESS than Everyone States

The major metabolic route of ALA (parent omega-3) in the body is beta-oxidation. This means that parent omega-3 is mainly burned for energy – not incorporated into cellular structure or used for derivatives – your body requires very little and will attempt to remove an excess if it can. ONLY VERY LITTLE PARENT OMEGA-3 IS REQUIRED FOR PROPER CELL MEMBRANE STRUCTURE. However, if you are “overdosing” from supplements, based on incorrect advice [which is MOST of the current advice on the market], the excess will be forced into the cell structure as the “Lipids 2000″ medical journal states:

“Linoleic acid (LA parent omega-6 FA) accumulates throughout the body of most mammals, whereas alpha-linolenic acid [ALA parent omega-3] is rarely found in those tissues to the same extent as LA”, “Increased alpha-linolenic acid [parent omega-3] intake increases tissue alpha-linolenic content [parent omega-3]” (Lipids 2000 Apr; 35(4):395-400.

This will NEGATIVELY IMPACT your cancer defense.

ALA accumultes in specific sites in the body of mammals, and only a small portion of dietary ALA is converted to DHA (Sinclair, A.J., et al., “What is the role of alpha-linolenic acid for mammals,” Lipids 2002 Dec;37(12):113-23).

The next piece of shocking information is from the “PUFA Newsletter”. “Alpha-Linolenic Acid Conversion Revisted” by Norman Salem et al., states,

“A recent article in the PUFA [Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid] Newsletter indicated that in adult men and women the ‘average estimated conversion of … alpha-linolenic acid to n-3-LC-PUFA metabolites and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA] was 17.3 +/- 12.8 and 3.6 +/- 3.8 percent, respectively (mean + SD)’. This is likely to be an OVERESTIMATE of the actual overall conversion rates for several reasons. We see even with this excessive estimate of the parent omega-3 derivative conersion that theoretically no more than 37% of them are converted to derivatives.”

The article makes the case that in reality only about 5% of the parent ALA [omega-]) is converted into derivatives. Pawlosky and others calculate that less than a mere 1% goes to derivatives. The article ends with, “The best estimates of alpha-linolenic acid conversion to n-3 LC-PUFA are much smaller than those claimed…”

Omega-6 conversion is also overstated:

“… Linking LA and AA in this way also implies a direct conversion of LA [parent omega-6] to AA [omega-6 derivative] which is not the case. In fact, a very high dietary LA will reduce membrane AA [the opposite effect!].” Note: This is why it was reported in the article by S. Bunting, s. Moncada, and J.R. Vane, titled “Prostacyclin – Thromboxane A2 Balance: Pathophysiological and Terapeutic Implications,” ‘British Medical Journal’, (1983)Vo.39, No.3, pages 271-276, that “AA in the phospholipids of Eskimo [consuming lots of parent omega-6] is approximately ONE-THIRD of that in Danes.”

The above quote was taken from Crawford, M.A., “Commentary on the workshop statement. Essentiality of and recommended dietary intakes for Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids,” in ‘Prostaglandins Leukot Essent Fatty acids 2000 Sep;63(3):131-4.

Here is the takehome to all the science above:

TOO MUCH OMEGA-3, OMEGA DERIVATIVES, OR DEFECTIVE EFAS RUIN THE CELL MEMBRANE STRUCTURE AND MINIMIZE YOUR LEVEL OF ANTICANCER PROTECTION.

Remember your goal is to MAXIMIZE the cell membrane structure so that the cells can remain fully oxygenated (cellular oxygenation), thus preventing a drop in cellular oxygenation of 30% which is the threshhold that Dr. Otto Warburg showed over and over again that healthy cells convert to cancer cells and cannot be reconverted.

So… when you are supplementing with Parent Essential Oils, PLEASE be sure you find a blend with the PROPER balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 (2.5:1 to 1:1) or you could inevitably be negatively affecting your health and cancer prevention.

“The Hidden Story of Cancer”, Renowned Physician Accolades

Here are some accolades related to my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”.

• “In the last ninety-three years, there have been only two monumental works that have succeeded in explaining the actual cause and treatment of cancer: No. 1 is the Nobel Prize-winning German physician and scientist, Otto Warburg, M.D., Ph.D. work, The Metabolism of Tumours, published in Germany in1910. No. 2 is Professor Brian Scott Peskin’s The Hidden Story of Cancer, which details a scientific breakthrough that explains Dr. Warburg’s research and introduces new science that will prevent cancer. This is undoubtedly a breakthrough of biblical proportions.”

—Bernardo C. Majalca, N.D. (Stage Four Cancer Researcher)

• “I had been taking high-dose fish oil for many years in an attempt to prevent C-V disease and retard inflammation. However, I noticed that my fasting blood sugars were always in the high range (100-115) and measurements of oxidative stress also reflected high levels. No one could explain it since my hemoglobin a1c always stayed low. Since switching to the parent EFAs (PEOs), as recommended in The Hidden Story of Cancer, my FBS came down to 84. My lipids also looked better than ever. I think many of our colleagues do not appreciate the dangers of high dose fish oil. Derivative EFAs like fish oil easily oxidize, and although some surrogate markers may improve, the final cost is still unknown. Thanks so very much for your book.”

—Ira L Goodman, M.D. Ophthalmic Surgeon (retired), Holistic Medicine

• “I’ve been studying Health & Nutrition for over 25 years. Your book, Brian, is knocking the socks off of me. It is indeed the greatest book on health & nutrition I have ever read. People won’t believe me when I say how can something as complicated as cancer and other degenerative diseases have such a simple solution. ‘Well, just read Brian Peskin’s book, The Hidden Story of Cancer and find out for yourself,’ is what I tell them. I can’t put it down – it is that interesting and informative!”

Desperately Seeking Simplified Theories

The following excerpts are from ‘Physics’ (“Notes on the Scientific method”) by Oscar M. Stewart (published by Ginn and Co., New York, N.Y., 1924, 1931, 1939, 1944). This insight seems to be lost on too many of the medical researchers in the field today.

“One should never accept a statement of facts unless he feels confident thatit is in agreement with experiment.”

“The habit of trying to explain things in terms of general principles is one of the most important attitudes of a good scientist.”

“… [T]he number of fundamental concepts and fundamental principles is small. This assumption is sometimes called the ‘law of parsimony’…”

“Any attempt to find a general law is an attempt to reduce the number of laws.”

***

What this means from a Life-Systems Engineering Science perspective, is that the SIMPLEST explanation is most likely to be right.

Now, think about this:

If a risk factor cannot be attributed to the majority of cases of a certain disease, then that factor is not the primary cause of the disease.

Let’s look at current cancer theories.

Most are too complicated and they do not fit this requirement. A risk factor may be a contributing actor to the disease or merely a concidental factor termend an “association”. In my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, I talk about how the current “risk factors”, “associated factors”, and theories linking cholestoerol, saturated fat and heart disease do NOT fit this requirement, either.

Unnecessary complication is NNOT required to find answers in science.

Dr. Warburg knew this a long long time ago.

So why don’t the researchers of today know this?

That is a mystery…

Brain Health

Did you know that your brain is 60% fat? Much of it is supposed to be EFA-based. With a potential EFA deficiency solved (and I talk about this in my books), your brain will run with maximum speed, better focus, better clarity and improved memory.

It is expected, although we have not proven, that Alzheimer’s occurrences would decrease if EFA deficiencies were eliminated.

ADD and ADHD have become rampant illnesses with no end in sight. A significent number of ADD children (40%) had significant deficiencies of EFAs as measured in their blood in studies*.

Children with attention issues have been seen to improve dramatically when their diets are supplemented with the correct blend of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids (2.5:1 to 1:1)

It makes good sense to have the correct combination of parent essential oils in your body as high as you possibly can for the best health in all respcts.

Warning: Surgery Can Cause Cancer Recurrence

The article, “Probing Surgery’s Link to Cancer Recurrence,” published in The Wall Street Journal [1], is enough to terrify any woman:

“Doctors have long noted that the rate of recurrence for women with breast cancer is highest during the first two years after surgery to remove the tumor. Now a group of researchers say they have found a reason why: the surgery itself…

“… They [researchers] say the cases recurred too early to be explained by another mechanism, so the researchers concluded that they were related to the women’s surgery…

“Dr. Retsky, lead investigator and lecturer in surgery at Children’s Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School, states ‘over half of all relapses in breast cancer are accelerated by surgery.’…”

Despite the best intentions, the surgical method to cure you of breast cancer can actually accelerate cancer’s destructive path. We don’t advocate rejecting surgery; it serves an often necessary purpose. But because breast surgery leads to increased relapse rates, the five-step protective measure plan I describe in my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, is vital to your long-term survival.

WARNING: Fish Oil Causes Brain Damage in Adults and Infants

April 28, 2010 2 comments

That’s right. Experiments performed between 1988 and 1992 conclusively showed abnormalities in brain tissue resulting from administration of fish oil. f anyone cared to look before issuing fish oil recommendations, here’s what the researchers reported in the article titled, “The Effects of Dietary n-3/n-6 Ratio on Brain Development in the Mouse: A Dose Response Study with Long-Chain n-3 Fatty Acids,” by P.E. Wainwright, et al., ‘Lipids’, Vol. 27, no 2 (19929, pages 98-103:

“Feeding of fish oil [omega-3 "derivatives"] to ADULT rats resulted in a rapid increase in levels of 22:5n-3 and 22:6n-3 as well as 20:5n-3 [omega 3 series] (which is usually present in brain tissue in only trace amounts) with corresponding decreases in 22:5n-6 as well as 20:4n-6 [omega 6 series], sugesting that THE BRAIN MAY BE VULNERABLE TO AN EXCESS OF long-chain n-3 PUFA [PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids].”

“The developing brain, because of its affinity for long-chain n-3, MAY BE PARTICULARLY SUCCEPTIBLE to such effects.”

“There is particular concern that the decreases in 20:4n-6 [omega 6 series] MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH ADVERSE EFFECTS.”

“Nevertheless, the findings may be of relevance to QUESTION THE CONCERNS regarding the provision of long-chain n-3 FA [from fish oil] IN HUMAN INFANT FEEDING.”

….

One must always exercise caution regarding animal studies’ application to humans. However, mice make good animal models in this respect since Lands et al. showed that EFA metabolism in rodents is similar to that in humans. (Lands WEM, Morris A, and Libelt B, “Quantitative effects of dietary polyunsaturated fats on the composition of fatty acids in rat tissues,” ‘Lipids’, Vol. 25, 1990, pages 505-51.)

Therefore overdosing on omega-3 can be hazardous to your brain and your health at any age.

Anyone could have found this information if they cared to look. I talk about all these technical terms in my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, in much more detail so that you can easily understand in “real life terms” what all this scientific jargon really means to YOU.

More shocking information (and I go into detail about this in my book) is that …

Glycemic (blood sugar) control WORSENS during fish oil administration. (see my book for details).

You don’t want a substance to increase blood glucose or insulin levels, negatively impact natural tumor killers, or compromise your immune system.

If you pick up a copy of my book, you can discover why fish is not protective agains theart disease; it is excessive in the wrong type of omega-3 and ives you an overdose of it, too.

Fish oil does the OPPOSITE of what is desired in five areas: brain damage, decreasing natural tumor cell killing ability, increasing harmful infection from bacteria, failing to stop arterial inflammation, and raising havoc with your blood glucose system (insulin resistance).

With five strikes against it – the fish oil myth is out!

Cancer is NOT Genetic

April 23, 2010 2 comments

“The myth of the all-powerful gene is based on flawed science that discounts the environmental context in which we and our genes exist.”

“The language that geneticists use often carries considerable ideological baggage. molecular biologists, as well as the press, use verbs like ‘control’, ‘plan’, or ‘determine’ when speaking about what genes or DNA do. These are all inappropriate because they assign far too active a role to DNA. The fact is that DNA DOESN’T DO ANYTHING; it is a remarkably inert molecule. It just sits in our cells and waits for other molecules to interact with it.”

“Relatively few diseases or disabilities are genetic; even fewer can be predicted, and most of the risks we and our families encounter are not biological at all.”

“I am belaboring this point [referring to hemoglobin synthesis] because it is usually ignored. When scientists talk about genes ‘for’ this or that molecule, trait, or disease they are being fanciful. At present [1993] there is little by way of theory by which they [biologists] could predict how, or whether, a certain mutation in a gene will affect a cell or oganism.”

In the above exerpts from Dr. Ruth Hubbard and Elijah Wald’s groundbreaking book, “Exploding the Gene Myth: How Genetic Information is Produced and Manipulated by Scientists, Physicians, Employers, Insurance Companies, Educators, and Law Enforcers”, published in 1993, Professor Hubbard makes it clear that DNA doesn’t directly ‘do’ anything. She tells us how relatively few diseases are genetically-based. She makes it clear that there is little predictive capability about the impact of genetic mutations on the cell and orgasm.

If you would like to read more exerpts from this amazingly informative book, as well as learn why the fear of “genetic tendency for cancer” is simply not true, please read Appendix I in my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”. You can get a copy from http://www.brianpeskin.com.

Oxygen & The Cells

Achieving peak oxygen-absorbing function of ALL the trillions of cells that make up the body is the goal, because doing so is to greatly minimize the cells’ susceptibility to forming cancer. I have talked about this extensively in my book “The Hidden Story of Cancer”.

In the course of his research, Dr. Warburg designed equipment to measure the oxygen level in the body. Dr. Warburg conclusively showed that if there is just a 35% oxygen compromise (decrease in the tissue), then cancer develops – automatically! You didn’t do anything “wrong”, and you wouldn’t even know that this oxygen reduction is happening because you wouldn’t feel it. Does it make sense to stay “close to the edge” of the cancer cutoff point and risk contracting cancer? No.

Once again, cancer medical journal articles published in 1996 and 1997 make the decreased oxygen – increased cancer connection and increased spreading of localized cancer cleaer:

“Tumor oxygenation predicts for the likelihood of distant metastases [cancer spreading] oin human soft tissue sarcoma.” [1]

“Tumor hypoxia [too little oxygen in the cell] adversely affects the prognosis of carcinoma of the head and neck.” [2]

How can we detect and remedy such an oxygen-deficient condition?
