  • If you REALLY want to help people with cancer, get into alternative cancer treatment. The Cancer Establishment treats people with mutilation, burns and poisons them with radioactivity, and poisons them with some of the deadliest chemicals known to man. No one emerges from conventional cancer treatment unharmed. The treatments themselves are carcinogenic. Many victims die of the treatment before they have a chance to die of cancer.
