Alternate Cancer Remedies
pally meat and fat intake.”—Dr. Gio B. Gori, speak- ing before Senator McGovern’s Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, 1972.
Testifying before that same committee, Dr. Arthur Upton declared that up to 50 percent of all cases of cancer are caused by diet. Add to that those caused by smoking and exposure to carcinogens, and we have nearly 80 percent. This means that most cancer cases could be prevented.
a vegetarian diet apparently alters the way tu- mor cells process fat—and thereby prevents the runaway growth that characterizes fatal cancers. This may partly explain why vegetarian diets help slow or stop the growth of established can- cers (Eduardo Siguel, Nutrition and Cancer 4(4):285-91, 1983).
Medical doctors advise their heart patients to change their diets; they need to tell their cancer patients to do it also.
From 1970 onward, there has been an increas- ing number of research studies which have con- cluded that a meat diet is a primary cause of can- cer. For example, in a study of Seventh-day Adventists, a group that is traditionally vegetar- ian, death rates were about one half of those seen in the general population (R.L. Phillips, “Role of Lifestyle and Dietary Habits in Risk of Cancer Among Seventh-day Adventists,” Cancer Research, 35(supp.):3513-22, 1975).
When Chinese women moved to America, their rate of breast cancers greatly increased. Men who eat milk, eggs, or dairy products daily, have a 3.6-times higher risk of fatal prostrate cancer. Populations around the world with the lowest meat consumption have low rates of co- lon cancer.
One study found that vegetarians obtain more essential nutrients from their diets and absorb those nutrients more efficiently than do non-vegetarians (P. Millet, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 50:718-27, 1989).
A massive study, called “the China Project,” was reported in 1990. Headed by T.C. Campbell of Cornell University, this research found that Chi- nese eat one third less protein than Americans (64 gm/day vs. 91 gm/day). But only 7 percent of the Chinese protein comes from animal sources, compared with 70 percent for Ameri- cans (4gm/day vs. 64 gm/day). The Chinese had far lower cancer rates. The research findings are contained in the book, J. Chen, T.C. Campbell, et. al., Diet, Lifestyle and Mortality in China: A Study of the Characteristics of 65 Countries,” 1990.
Here are other major findings of this study: Eating large amounts of fiber will protect against colon cancer. Childhood diets high in protein, fat, calories, and calcium promote early growth, but produce higher breast cancer rates later in life among women. Consuming high amounts of protein can lead to cancer and other degen- erative diseases.
Another study revealed that a vegetarian diet not only lowers the levels of known carcino- gens, like saturated fats and excess protein, but
____________________ HARRY M. HOXSE , N.D., 1920
Note to Researchers: Testing on the Hoxsey formula should be carried out. Surely, there must be some value here! It was used with apparent success on so many people.
Working Summary: The Hoxsey treatment consisted of nine herbs, plus potassium iodide. Fortunately, we know both the original and the modified formulas. A Hoxsey clinic exists today in Mexico.
Of all the alternative cancer specialists, there was no one like Hoxsey, absolutely no one. He was a natural showman, and he loved a good fight.
The story began in 1840, when a valuable horse (a Percheron) on a farm in Illinois became ill. Harry Hoxsey’s great-grandfather was very con- cerned. The veterinarian told him the animal had a hopeless cancer on its right hoof, and should be destroyed. Instead, John Hoxsey decided to turn it out into a large pasture so it could eat all the grass it wanted. He wanted the horse to die in peace. The pasture it was admitted to had lots of tall grass, plus lots of full-grown weeds of various kinds.
John watched his beloved horse,—and then noted that it went to one area of the pasture and ate certain weeds. Hoxsey became interested, walked over and watched this very closely. Soon the horse recovered completely and the tumor sloughed away.
So John ground up various combinations of the types of plants the horse had been eating, and began treating the farm animals. Eventually, from those weeds, he had an herbal remedy for can- cer.
With this in hand, he prepared a liquid, a salve, and a powder and began treating animals throughout the area. But he kept his formula a secret; and, before his death, Hoxsey entrusted the formula to his son, also named John, who be- came a “country doctor”—treating humans who had cancer. Whether he had it any degree is not known.
Of the twelve children in his family, only young Harry was interested in the cancer remedy. The father was thankful one of his sons wanted to carry
