The Shocking Truth about Cancer Statistics

I've heard conspiracy theories about how health agencies and the medical associations skew the numbers on cancer.

If a person dies of multiple causes, they pick one that is not a cancer or a cancer treatment.

That may or may not be true. I don't have the time or resources to verify such a claim.

Cure the Incurable
Cure the Incurable

Mikhail Tombak, Ph.D. extensively studied Tibetan, Chinese and other Oriental alternative medicines to become one of the world's greatest authorities on health, longevity, and human body in general.


Certainly, there are entirely too many unsubstantiated conspiracy claims bouncing around the planet. Be that as it may, something sinister is certainly afoot.

What I was able to do, however, was to check one supposedly reputable website for their statistics.

I decided to live "dangerously" and check out the World Health Organization website dedicated to cancer research—

The following map was generated through their website. I have modified it to match the color scheme on another map showing the GDP.

International cancer map generated at International Agency for Research on Cancer website, Globocan 2008, and modified by colors.

And here is a similar map showing the GDP internationally. Notice the striking similarities between the two maps. Does this tell you something?

Nearly all countries heavily influenced by the West have high incidences of cancer. Why is that? Most of the very prosperous have far higher incidences of cancer. Of the exceptions to this apparent rule (those which are prosperous but low incidence of cancer), the majority of these are non-Western-aligned countries—for example, Libya and Saudi Arabia.

It seems also that poor countries with high incidence of cancer are heavily aligned with the West. For example, New Caledonia and French Polynesia are both French.

How could prosperity and alignment with the West cause more cancer? Or is this merely a case of tragic and gargantuan coincidence? Could the cancer rates be based upon what the majority of the population eats?

Perhaps it's no coincidence that ground zero for cancer seems to be the United States and those most heavily aligned with America. And perhaps it's no coincidence that every cancer cure has been outlawed in the United States.

Ever since the Rockefellers branched out from petroleum to petroleum food additives and other products for the body (cosmetics, sun tan lotion, etc.), the citizen health of Western-aligned countries has declined.

Granted, this is not a thorough, peer-reviewed research paper, but the alignment of Western wealth (and its associated food habits) with rates of cancer is compelling at first blush. Could there be another reason for this apparent alignment? I'm sure the pharmaceutical companies would love to come up with a few suggestions and to make them sound very convincing. To protect the bottom line, I'm sure they've become quite expert at it.

Big Pharma Greed

Would it come as a surprise to find out that a corporation had as its goal, profits? Would it surprise you to find out that a corporation would do anything to protect those profits? Including outlawing cures?

Think about it. If natural cures were to be made legal, the pharmaceutical giants would be out of business. And some of those cures have been proven to be quite effective. Would you trust the pharmaceutical companies and their FDA cronies to tell you the truth about those cures? With billions of dollars at stake, I think not.

The FDA was a good idea—protect the public. But the bad hats are good at creating a scare and then offering the prepackaged solution. It doesn't take much money to set up a charlatan, have them kill a few people with quack cures and then to pass a law against such things. The good is swept out with the bad, and the ones in power get to say what can be outlawed—based on economics, not health.

Kinda gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling about your nation's drug pushers—the medical doctors and the pharma corporations which fund medical schools and which give those doctors additional perks. And let's not forget all the contributing parties:

• Pharmaceutical corporations
• Medical doctors and AMA
• Rockefeller Foundation (they started the ball rolling in 1913)
• Petrochemical industry
• Food industry (and all those food additives)
• FDA (the agency which protects the industry; not the consumer)

They had better make the money while the getting is good. Some of the warning signs in Revelations have already been checked off. We're going to be in for a bumpy ride, thanks to these greedy beasts. Those who make it to the other side will have the Kingdom of God to look forward to. And the New World Order these guys are clamoring for? Ground into dust. Sort of poetic justice, if you think about it. But we mustn't forget to think kind thoughts and forgiveness for the poor, misguided greedies. They know not what they do.

      Thank you, MonkeyShine75 for your input. First of all, you misunderstood something in what I wrote about ego. I still have a huge ego. That you could get something so wrong only shows that you don't know everything and that you can misunderstand things. Same for me. I used to believe the official conspiracy theory of 9/11. I had misgivings about it, but until 4 years ago, had no reason to deny it.

      Would loving someone include letting them be destroyed by crooks and thieves? I'm sure you'd agree with me that love would include compassion and this means doing something about evil. Resisting it is not recommended, but waking up others about it is a good thing, I think. Especially if we keep compassion and love in mind. This is hard even for me.

      I discuss some of the 9/11 topic in,


      Let me ask you this: Has anyone ever conspired to do something wrong, evil, unethical or illegal? If you answered "yes," then you are on your way to understanding. Centers of power attract the unethical and the psychopathic. This has always been the case throughout history. The key ingredient is selfishness or self-concern.

      I'm well aware of Wikipedia's stance on "conspiracy theories." They and Corporate Party mainstream media treat even asking questions about 9/11 as "conspiracy theory." They treat facts as "conspiracy theory." That's lunacy. That is a soft form of censorship that doesn't look like censorship. Only the conspirators and those caught in strong Normalcy Bias would want people not to look into conspiracies.

      In a nutshell, proof that someone in America (not Al Qaeda) did 9/11 can be found in the perfect free fall of WTC7. That's one of thousands of items of fact. How is this proof?

      First of all, WTC7 was a highly secure building, as were all of the structures in the World Trade Center. WTC7 had many government agencies as residents, including the 2nd largest office of the CIA. "Incompetence" of government has been used too often in the discussion of 9/11 to mask something far more sinister. Was the CIA incompetent in not recognizing and stopping the planting of hundreds of pounds of explosives and thermitic cutter charges within their own building? Controlled demolition is the only way WTC7 could have collapsed at perfect free fall. Free fall means zero resistance. Solid steel (the heart of all the WTC buildings) never offers zero resistance. Could Al Qaeda have planted those explosives and thermitic cutter charges? Was security that incompetent?

      Iron microspheres and nano-thermite chips were found in the 9/11 dust. These prove thermitic reactions helped to bring down all 3 buildings. William Rodriguez experienced in the basement an explosion several seconds before the first airplane hit.

      Some of the so-called hijackers had been trained at US military bases. A CIA operation in Jedda, Saudi Arabia funneled terrorists into the US with a fast-track visa program that one consulate official refused to participate in. The 19 were not Muslim Fundamentalists, as they were portrayed, because they loved cocaine, alcohol and loose women. The best pilot amongst them could not fly a twin-engine Cessna well enough to rent one. The FBI agents investigating the 19 before 9/11 were told not to interfere with them. The best FBI expert on Al Qaeda left the FBI in protest and someone recommended he work as head of security at the WTC. He started work on the day before 9/11 and died on 9/11.

      The rules of engagement for hijacked airplanes were changed weeks before 9/11 to hamper our response time -- forcing decisions through the Defense Secretary who happened to make himself unavailable on the morning of 9/11. These same rules were changed back not long after 9/11.

      Mayor Giuliani committed a felony by allowing (or instructing) the destruction of crime scene evidence starting on the evening of 9/11. Crime scenes are supposed to be protected. The largest crime scene in American history was scrubbed clean months before the official investigation was started.

      There are many more facts of direct and indirect evidence which at least call into question the official "conspiracy theory" of 9/11. But some facts prove that someone else did 9/11. Free fall of WTC7 does this, for me, because I do not believe that the CIA and WTC security were all 3 Stooges incompetent.

      Treason is keeping yourself blind. Treason is not asking questions when the facts shout fraud. Treason is not protecting the Constitution as all presidents and military officers are supposed to do. But when President Obama said that of the prisoners at Gitmo, they should stay locked up indefinitely, even if found innocent, he showed his true colors. Obama, like Bush before him, is an enemy of the state.

      I'm sorry but America didn’t do 9/11, that's a conspiracy theory. Please give proof. My dad is a retired Airforce Chief Master Sergeant (CMSgt), and I've lived in several countries, and was very informed when it came to military issues. al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11, and to say any different is treason.

      Those countries with high cancer rates that you are blaming on America has been in possession of Nuclear weapons, and radiation, among other things which could be the cause, otherwise it's merely coincidence

      My question is "why would you write something as though it's fact, when it isn't, to give other countries something else to hate us for. I'd be ashamed.

      I admit I didn’t read all of your hub, but according to you, you have done away with ego, and have only love. Are you sure? I don’t see love for your country, and government. Until you are able to really have, and show true love, you shouldn’t preach it

      Thank you, MonkeyShine75. I'm not sure what you're disagreeing with.

      You said, "So I don't understand how anyone can say the poor dies with cancer, and the rich person survives."

      Funny, I don't remember ever saying this. Perhaps you'd better re-read the article. This did not talk about paying for medical care. It talked about the causes of cancer being in the food and lifestyle produced in the West. We're living in a cesspool of cancer-causing agents. And the greedy pharmaceutical companies are eating it up. Profit is their motive -- not health care. Disease maintenance is their game plan, not health maintenance. They've outlawed cures and there are many cancer cures. The only reason they were outlawed is that they were not "approved." They didn't test the cures; they merely looked up the fact that they had not yet been approved. Dumb!

      I suggest you do a lot more research. This is only the tip of a very large and very ugly iceberg.

      I've also found out that the capital of leukemia in the world (World Health Organization statistics) resides in two countries -- Iraq and Afghanistan. What do these countries have in common? They've been attacked by the United States. Poisons, depleted uranium weapons and more. And America did 9/11; not Muslims.

      Also, your sense of economics is terribly distorted. Medical care in America is horrible and costs the most! Compared to care in other First World countries, America is not First in anything except cost. Check out this video on "Rockefeller Medicine:"

      Who pays the insurance companies? Who pays Medicare? You pay it all. Every taxpayer and insurance customer pays. And costs are becoming monstrous.

      What would you do if someone held a cure for a fatal disease you were suffering, but they said you couldn't have it at any cost?

      I have to say that this is simply untrue. My sister is a Certified Coder in a hospital. I’ve helped her when she brought her work home. She knew all the DRGs, CPT codes, Diagnosis codes, and she reads all the patient’s files. Chemotherapy ranges from $30,000.00 to $300.000.00 for treatment depending on the type of cancer, the endurance of treatment while in the hospital, and if it was radical chemo or not.

      The Elderly people usually have Medicare, and Medicare pays 80%. What they don't pay (20% + deductible) is the responsibility of the guarantor, any more charges not paid by Medicare, and the secondary insurance, or any insurance besides Medicare is written off as a contractual adjustment. (which is the rule of Medicare, and other commercial insurance)

      So I don't understand how anyone can say the poor dies with cancer, and the rich person survives

      If a person has no insurance the patient is responsible for the whole bill, that is true for every illness, and person, rich or poor

      Thanks, @visionandfocus. I hadn't looked at the exporting of such evil.

      It seems that soon the Corporations will no longer have to put up with the interference of pesky voters. The Corporate Party is squeezing out the 99% in favor of Corporate votes. When that happens, perhaps they won't have to export. They can merely do it to whomever they please, and it will become illegal to refuse. Cheery thought, that.

      And the fact that they own both major slates in America makes it a slam dunk for a win. No matter which party they vote for -- Republicrats or Demopublicans -- the Corporate Party always gets the win. And recently, both halves of the Corporate Party virtually eliminated the pretense of voting from their conventions. Roberts Rules of Order have become a lie so thin that everyone can see they are all ceremony and no meaning.

      The following ~5-minute videos broke my heart. America has now been fully swallowed by the Dark Side of Corporate greed.

      Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are abominations. People get better despite them and not because of them. I think the western diet as it is now has a lot to answer for. And certainly, as you pointed out so eloquently, Big Pharma is responsible for more deaths than anything else I can think of, not just in the West, but also in 3rd world countries, as they like nothing better than to do their drug trials where litigation is way less than in the US. How many more children have to die or be maimed from completely unnecessary vaccines like Gardasil just so they can rake in their profits?

      Very interesting maps indeed. Voted up!

      The western food-cancer association is no coincidence. In the west there is a lot of cured food and drinks, with additives and nitrosamine. Bologna, hamburger, etc. These produce a lot of free radicals that cause cancer. Conventional medicine, with coaching from big pharma, does note recognize free radicals as causes of disease like heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, arthritis, Parkinson' disease, hypertension, stroke, tumor, rheumatic heart, aging. Dr. Morton Walker has a longer list (Walker, M. MD. The Miracle Healing Power of Chelation Therapy. 1984).

      @suraj, thanks for visiting. I wish you had elaborated on your statement so we could understand. If you're referring to the entire article, then you need to re-check your facts. The cancer map comes directly from the World Health Organization. The correlation with GDP's is striking and compelling. It adds ammunition to what nutritionists and conspiracy theorists have been saying for decades. People in the West are being poisoned.

      Actually real 'snake oil' has been proven to have healing qualities, which is probably why local Doctors in the old West tried to discredit it!

      Rod Martin Jr

      @PMMitchell, thanks for the comment and I think you may have skimmed over the real problem. Some of the "snake oil salesmen" may have been hired by the real "snake oil salesmen" to kill a few people so they could have certain laws passed. The "real" snake oil salesmen? Big Pharma.

      In the last few years, they've been caught with their figurative pants down -- drugs which killed, but for which they hid certain data to the patients' detriment. The deeper you dig into this story, the more dirt you find. And the dirt is all over the pharmaceutical giants and the medical profession. Individual doctors are nice people, some of them. Some of them really care, but they don't know any better because big pharma controls their education. The Rockefellers made sure of that in 1913.

      This looks good on the surface, but it's an old ploy of sinister cleverness to give people what they think they want so you can enslave them. Hitler did it. His song was patriotism and protecting the Fatherland from Jewish bankers.

      Wow! Now look at that piece of wisdom. If we despise Jewish bankers (Rothschilds), then we must love Hitler. But I despise both the Rothschilds and Hitler. Both were extremely selfish. And the Rothschilds have been plotting a New World Order for the last 200+ years.

      Does chemotherapy and radiation work? Oh, it may kill cancer cells, but it kills the patient, too! And horribly! My sister-in-law (wife's sister) nearly died from chemo. She refused to take any more, against doctor recommendations, because it was so painful. They are the real "snake oil salesmen," and the tragedy is that we all bought it.

      Want some real cures? Check out the Cancer Report. I learned about this gem from AguaSilver (you should check out some of his hubs, too).


      One of those cures was produced by a scientist with real integrity: Dr. Linus Pauling -- who won 2 Nobel Prizes (unshared; i.e. full credit was his). The medical establishment decried his breakthrough in vitamin C research. Why would they do such a thing? Because the pharmaceutical companies couldn't make a billion dollars off of it. It would jeopardize their profit centers -- disease maintenance (never "cure").

      The Cancer Report video, above, gives several cancer cures. For each of them, the medical establishment never proved they were ineffective or harmful. They merely had them outlawed because they were not produced by a medical doctor or the pharmaceutical industry. I remember when armed marshals raided my local health food store in Los Angeles to arrest some poor, unsuspecting produce. The cure was so potent, Big Pharma was willing to go to radical extremes to have it quashed in the USA.

      So, who's the real "snake oil salesman?" Big Pharma may have a few good products ("good" not "great"), but they were never out to cure anything. Curing is against their credo. And their legal responsibility is to produce profits for their shareholders. Cures would be "illegal."

      I hope this answers your question.

      Hi John. Good point. What I had in mind were true "quack cures" perhaps some petroleum-based "snake oil" or similar. I remember reading about one law that was passed in the 1930s in the United States because of something like this. I wouldn't put it past the bad hats creating a fake cure, ensuring that someone died from it, just to have the law passed with its restrictions.

      The key strategy is one of,

      1) Creating a very specific problem

      2) Fanning the flames of social outrage

      3) Humbly offering a solution in the form of restrictive laws which forward their agenda.

      Pretty slick, but terribly sinister. Evil to the core.

      Hi Carl, my only comment:

      "It doesn't take much money to set up a charlatan, have them kill a few people with quack cures and then to pass a law against such things."

      I cannot think of anywhere near the number of deaths happening for natural cures by comparison with death by white coat medicines.
