In the name of science

April 8, 2010

Everything’s true in the name of science, like ‘greens don’t work as cancer medicine’ which has been topping the headlines of mainstream media the last few days. But none of the reporters ask themselves why this study has been conducted and more importantly – who funded it? To make a thorough assessment of this so-called study I would like to know where the money comes from. Yes, it’s The National Cancer Institute in the US, but still? Who’s funding them? A not very wild guess is that the study has been designed and ordered by the cancer medicine industry. The study was lead by renowed cancer researcher Paolo Bofetta at the Tisch Cancer Institute in NY. Data have been collected from 400 000 test persons in Europe, which were said to have increased their average daily consumption of fruit, vegetables and greens with 200g during a 8 year period. In the study the test group showed a 3 % decrease of cancer risk. However, what I would like to know is if the test group consumed the (by WHO) recommended 500g/day of fresh fruit, vegetables and greens. (Some days I actually manage to do this myself; it’s easy if you start the day with a green barley grass shake and 2-3 fresh fruits.) I would also like to see a study of cancer risk with placebo groups and double blind studies, comparing test persons eating a diet of organic raw food with focus on fresh greens with test persons not eating any fruits, vegetables or greens. Or don’t you think the cancer medicine industry would like to pay for that?

In the different articles no journalist even mention the beneficial anti-disease or anti-ageing effects of fruit, vegetables and greens: antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, proteins, weight loss, alkalizing, PH-balance etc. No journalist mention the actual meaning of the 1931 Nobel prize winner Otto Heinrich Warburg “for his discovery of the nature and mode of action of the respiratory enzyme”, where he concludes that cancer cells thrive in acidic environments and don’t thrive in alkaline environments. When you hear of people having succeeded in reversing cancer and other chronic disease, this is most probably their formula. If you’re interested you can learn from Ann Wigmore, Victoria Boutenko and why not Brendan Brazier, professional triatlete and vegan.

    You´ll get the answers you want if you ask the “right” question. Money talks…. It´s sad but true.

      We live in a world of conspiracies… and guess who’s profits will grow if we stop eating vitamins… Hmm… Or take like the recent “scientific” report about the exaggerated carbon footprints of meat eating habits, delivered by “Progress in Industrial Ecology”. Uncritical media suddenly forget all previous studies about the environmental impacts, like water consumption, of raising livestock.

    I know! And it´s so “easy” for the Tv, newspapers etc. to buy what ever the medical companies, the meat industries or what ever says because they ARE good on convinsing people! All their nice titles and prefix, lobbying, advertising and money helps them.:-(
