Alternative Cancer Remedies
bestrol during early pregnancy appears to have en- hanced the risk of vaginal adenocarcinoma developing years later in the offspring exposed.”
The birth control tablet, commonly known as the pill, contains estrogen. However, the main estrogen used in the pill is a synthetic chemical substance known as diethylstilbestrol (DES). In addition, two other estro- gens are also used in the pill.
Cancer-causing properties of estrogens have been known, at least, since 1936. Various researchers have clearly established that these hormones could cause adenomas or malignant growth.
It is estimated that, at the present time, there are about 75,000,000 women throughout the world on the pill.
It was stated, at the 1970 U.S. Senate hearings, that more than 50 dangerous side effects can result from taking birth control pills.
combat osteoporosis (calcium loss from the bones) and other conditions. But it has been found to stimulate cancer of the breast as well as other types of cancers. Fortunately, there are other safer ways to solve os- teoporosis than by taking estrogen.
Dr. Holman, eminent British bacteriologist, is a senior lecturer in bacteriology at the School of Medi- cine, University of Wales, and honorary consultant bac- teriologist at the United Cardiff Hospitals. He special- izes in bacteriological approaches to the study of can- cer. Dr. Holman maintains that the catalase-peroxide balance in the body is vital to life. Fluoride intake (in fluoride additives to drinking water) disturbs this bal- ance. Sodium fluoride (which is added to many public water supplies) is a potent destroyer of catalase.
Nitrites are added to meat to give it a pinkish color and also disguise rancidity, as well as slow bacterial action. The rancidity is not removed, but merely cov- ered over. It also permits the use of older, cheaper meat.
Nitrites are also known to cause cancer. After be- ing added to meat, the nitrites combine with the amines to form nitrosamines. A very large amount of nitrites is permitted (the 200 ppm level); but, in spite of pro- tests from cancer researchers, nothing is done to lower it. Keeping the meat from the appearance of spoiling is considered more important than protecting your body from the nitrosamines.
Norwegian researchers, in 1962, discovered that liver cancer in sheep was caused by nitrite ingestion which, in the liver, combined with amino acids to form nitrosamines. It is now known that nitrosamines are extremely potent cancer-causing agents—even at low levels of 5ppm (parts per million). They have been known to cause tumors in a wide range of organs and in every species of animal tested.
Saccharin is a chemical sweetener, and tends to build up in the bladder. In test animals, it has induced bladder cancer. According to a National Institutes of Health report, we are told:
“Significant concentrations of saccharin might ac- cumulate in the bladders of individuals who used this compound daily over an extended period of time . . Studies have shown that high concentrations of sac- charin may cause bladder carcinomas.”

Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. It en- ters the atmosphere from nuclear tests, and then falls to the earth in rainfall. It has been found in aquifers and water supplies in various parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Tritium is produced naturally in the at- mosphere by cosmic ray bombardment, but scientists have concluded that the buildup of it originated from hydrogen bomb tests conducted from 1962 onward.
Dr. Gordon Stewart, of the U.S. Geological Survey, has reported a “marked increase” in tritium in both coastal and inland waters. When it combines with oxy- gen, it can go anywhere regular water can go.
Dr. Dieudonne J. Mewissen, of the Pritzker School of Medicine, in a University of Chicago news release on March 23, 1971, noted that the tiny amounts of tri- tium, found in radioactive water, causes tumors in mice. It is believed that the upward trend in cancer, since the early 1960s, is at least partly due to tritium contami- nation of our drinking water.
To complicate the problem, controlled release of radioactive liquids has occurred at several Atomic En- ergy Commission centers in the U.S. For a number of years, it was even legal. Add to this the many acciden- tal leakages.
Tritium, like cesium-137, strontium 90, and other radioactive substances, is contaminating the planet. It is thought that such contaminates are sources of carci- noma.
Dr. Mewissen’s report reveals that tritium, in amounts at least 50 times less than the so-called “safe” level recommended by the AEC, increased the incidence of tumors in laboratory mice. His conclusions resulted from a seven-year study begun in Belgium, and con- cluded at the Chicago school.
