Special Preventive Factors
“If we have no cure of cancer, su
rely it is not from lack of trying.”
“[In order to eliminate cancer] Auler (1937- 1941) recommended a non-sparing diet, rich in salt and spices, raw meat several times weekly, juices of vegetables and fruits and oils to replace animal fats . .
“Bruenings, Frankfurt a/Main (1930s) rec- ommended a diet poor in carbohydrates and rich in proteins, aided by insulin . .
“In Dietotherapy Clinical Application of Modern Nutrition [ed. by M.G. Wohl, M.D.; W.B. Saunders, Philadelphia 1946, 573], car- cinoma of the stomach is described as essen- tially a surgical problem. A [strict] post-op- erative diet is required only after subtotal or total gastrectomy. ‘Once the patient has sur- vived the operation and the convalescence has followed, the diet is very liberal and practi- cally without restrictions. Patients who have suffered partial resections [removal] of the stomach can manage practically the same diet as normal persons’ . .
“Nearly 100 years ago, Otto Voelker wrote: ‘The degree to which a disease is open to thera- peutic attack is inversely related to the num- ber of remedies that we possess’ [quoted in W.H. Woglom, Approach to Tumor Chem-
otherapy, 1947, 1]. Nowhere is this more true than in cancer, for which treatments have been advanced by the thousands.
“The older ones included: crab or crab soup; . . purgation; yeast treatment; different dietary regimes; hyperemia and its opposite; blood-letting; salves—first black, and if this proved ineffectual, red ones; caustic pastes; hot iron-burnings; pipe clay; blood-cleansing teas; silver and gold; mercury; copper; phos- phorous; arsenic—externally and internally; chemotherapy; acids; alkalies; diaphoresis; vegetable products of all sorts, including vio- let leaves and toads; auto-vaccine; polysaccha- ride; implanting of erysipelas streptococci, etc. The modern cancer remedies include: surgery, X-ray treatment; radium; ionized minerals (gold, phosphorous, iodine, cobalt); hor- mones; . . and the newest proposal of ‘cre- ation of cancer focci on the skin as cancer of one organ shields other organs’ . .
“As cancer author William H. Woglom writes, ‘If we have no cure of cancer, surely it is not from lack of trying.’ ”
