    Why has Dr. Sebi been mentioned. Sebi cured cancer, aids, sickle cell anemia and many more diseases with herbs. Case is sealed with the Supreme Court of New York, why was the case sealed? Sealed because Sebi cured diseases with herbs! There's no money to be made in herbs.

    There were numerous people out there that claim their cancer was "cured" by going Vegan Period, and that Medical industry is hiding it all to make money yada yada
    With watching this, I see some optimism and I really really hope tht someone comes up with a cure or treatments that can lengthen survival span.

    I thought I would lost my wife to cancer after battling for so long without any improvements or hope of recovery but never did I know it's best helpful to recover fast from this disease with natural herbs remedies. We tried different therapies which is known but non was helpful as the symptoms grew worse everyday from painful coughs with chest and body pains to difficulties in breathing especially at night and bad visible weight loss because she always refused to eat except being forced when she will take just a little. PENTOSIN formula from DR JUDE HERBAL HOME gave my wife her life back despite being in the last stage of this disease. We were very skeptical at first to order this medicine because when we saw this remedy we never believed it will help but we kept on seeing people talk about it and how it has helped them fight this disease in different Cancer forums on Facebook so we decided to contact this doctor with his contract and ordered the medicine. She only used the medicine for four weeks as prescribed by the man and all the symptoms and growth dried up and went away just like we were dreaming. I can now see the great importance of nature that everyone is neglecting

  16. Greg Dahlen says:

    I often wonder if the unusual diet I follow would alleviate cancer. For the last 15 years, I've been living between 92% and 100% on fluid dairy products. So every day, 92 to 100 percent of my calories come from some combination of skim milk, 1% milk, 2% milk, whole milk, half-and-half, and fluid whipping cream. In my case the diet alleviates pesky eye discomfort. But I think it will alleviate many diseases. So the mom's body makes milk and cream from food she has eaten and already broken up. And when the milk and cream go through your digestive system they get broken up again by your bile. Thus when the nutrients from the milk and cream reach the cells they've been broken up twice, versus solid food nutrients only broken up once, and hence milk/cream nutrients don't clog the cells as much as solid food nutrients, and thus the cells perform better. It's not really that the milk/cream nutrients fight cancer so much as they don't interfere with cell function as much as solid food nutrients, and hence the cells work better. I also think the mom's mammary gland chooses the elements from her own food to compose the milk/cream that are the softest and most easily handled by the baby's digestive system and whose nutrients are the least clogging to the cells, hence again the nutrients from milk/cream don't interfere as much with cell function as solid food nutrients.

    BTW we all appreciate very good and promising science !

  18. JunoNH says:

    People forget that its not just unlucky kids and life long smokers who get cancer

    It's also a real cause of death in adulthood and midlife, and even sadder is that in that period suicide is even higher.

    Terrible to think some people are fighting for their lives when others are throwing them away.

  20. Maninder says:

    प्रतिवर्ष हजारों लोगों का कैंसर से मारा जाना अध्यात्म के गिरते हुए स्तर को प्रदर्शित करता है। आज संत रामपाल जी महाराज से जुड़ने वाले कैंसर व अन्य गंभीर बीमारियों से ग्रस्त लोगों का ठीक होना साबित करता है कि सिर्फ उनका बताया आध्यात्मिक मार्ग सही है।

  21. Ridge Fernando says:

    I hope it's getting better everyday

  22. Rojin Bahari says:

    Even with 100 percent healthy lifestyle you cant f** kin guarantee.

  23. Shawn Debbad says:

    I did not know that even one in a million got cured of cancer using $$ money making modern medicine. When that one person gets cured, I guess it's worth telling the whole world about it. Isn't it? And BTW. donate to Cancer research 😀 Just in case you havent figured out that, "More people live off of cancer than die of it". (Dr. Deepak Chopra)

  24. Marina V says:

  26. Mia Li says:

    Directing immune system.. okay.

  27. Mia Li says:

    I don't think bio-engineerings have much to say about human health as the studies are quite different, not even pharmacists do.

    Je suis français.

    It is a wild question.
    All of us had à person sufering of this, or other, bad disease.

  29. Richard Jolley says:

    Modern Medicine is not the key, 3 cures for Cancer, Nutrition, B17, and Cannibus.

  30. Richard Jolley says:

    Proper Nutrition, Exercise, stay fit and lean, Sunlight, and certain Herbs. This is how Im beating Cancer. Chemotherapy is poison, doesnt work, it justs makes you have poor quality of life. In some cases Radiation works. Its been Two years since I was diagnosed with Metatastic Testicular Cancer, Healthier than a horse, ride my bicycle 10 to 20 miles a day in the sun with no sun screen to block out the Vitamin D levels, and workout at the gym 4 to 5 times a week.

  31. Simulation says:

    Great job Ted! Keep up the great work, we're all counting on you 🙂

  32. I got 5 on it says:

    I feel cancer is biologically in all of us it just shows itself earlier in life in some cases… because if you live long enough it seems like everybody gets cancer..

  34. rika says:

    Get treatment early? Sure. But we live in a country where a woman who almost had her leg ripped off by a subway train screamed out not to call an ambulance because she couldn't afford it, so.

    You know Damm well kimo kills . you guys only care about money. Your promoting poison

  41. Tony Nesta says:

    Meat, dairy, alcohol, smoking, definitely all cancerous.
    Would it be advantageous to donate my body instead of money to cancer research? (If I die of cancer of course).

  42. diego chevez says:

    I won't be the first neither the last one; I just came to complete the "Who live? Who dies? Who tells your story?"
