Cancers 30X worse?
Radiation Therapy Can Make Cancers 30x More Malignant

A recent study confirms what many alternative cancer doctors already knew: “Radiation Treatment Generates Therapy Resistant Cancer Stem Cells From Aggressive Breast Cancer Cells,” published in the journal Cancer July 1st, 2012, researchers from the Department of Radiation Oncology at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center report that radiation treatment actually drives breast cancer cells into greater malignancy.
The common belief in conventional medicine had been that since the number of cancer cells was reduced after radiation, that the treatment was working. What this study found, however, is that the ratio of highly malignant to benign cells within that tumor increased, eventually leading to the iatrogenic (treatment-induced) death of the patient.
A related study published in the journal Stem Cells titled, “Radiation-induced reprogramming of breast cells,” found that ionizing radiation actually turned less malignant breast cancer cells into iBCSCs. This explains why conventional treatment actually enriches the tumor population with higher levels of treatment-resistant cells.
A growing body of research now indicts conventional cancer treatment with chemotherapy and radiation as a major contributing cause of cancer patient mortality. The primary reason for this is the fact that cancer stem cells, which are almost exclusively resistant to conventional treatment, are not being targeted, but to the contrary, are encouraged to thrive when exposed to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
What normally occurs is that chemotherapy and radiation selectively kills the less harmful populations of cells (daughter cells), increasing the ratio of CSCs to benign and/or less malignant cells. This is not unlike what happens when antibiotics are used to treat certain infections. The drug may wipe out 99.9% of the target bacteria, but .1% have or develop resistance to the agent, enabling the .1% to come back even stronger with time.
The antibiotic, also, kills the other beneficial bacteria that help the body fight infection naturally, in the same way that chemotherapy kills the patient’s immune system (white blood cells and bone marrow), ultimately supporting the underlying conditions making disease recurrence more likely.
