Childhood Cancer

Thursday, October 14, 2010
I have just received some very interesting reading material and thought I'd share with  you. Dr. George Georgiou, holistic medicine practitioner, researcher and author has published a fascinating book on the ever present topic of cancer. In his most recent newsletter, he conveyed some pretty compelling information, that I will now pass along.

Childhood cancer occurence has increased over the past half century. Science still has found no explanation for the phenomena. As we all know, cancer is a disease with many causal factors, many of which are not even looked at nor considered when research is undertaken. Research emphasis usually tends towards finding the genetic links of childhood cancers.

Even though some claim that childhood cancer is rare, statistics tell a different story. It is the second killer of children (US and UK). Bone and brain cancers now seem to be among the most common types in children, rising between 10 and 15% in recent history.

A growing body seems more vulnerable to a variety of environmental toxins, making children more sensitive to toxic overload. As more and more research and data becomes available, proof that there exists a link between pesticides exposure and childhood cancer is being ever more firmly established. Pesticide exposure is linked to leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, neuroblastoma and Wilms' tumours, as well as cancers of the brain, colorectum and testes. Pesticide use in the home as well as in the garden are to blame for the significant rise in childhood brain cancers.

Some concern has been raised concerning a potential link between vaccinations and cancers. If you consider that the organisms used to vaccinate are gathered from excrements or bodily fluids of infected hosts and then grown in toxic mediums (because they can't proliferate in what is considered healthy conditions for humans), that most have added toxins in them, including formaldehyde, aluminum, thimerosal (mercury derivative), and phenols (all known carcinogens) as well as antibiotics, is it a mystery how these could potentially suppress normal immune function?

Dr Georgiou mentions in his article :
In addition, viruses themselves may cause cancer, and the process by which viruses are ‘inactivated’ for use in vaccines is not infallible. A well-known example of this is the simian virus 40 (SV40) that contaminated the early Salk polio vaccine. SV40 was a carcinogenic virus growing on the monkey kidneys used to culture poliovirus. It was discovered only after hundreds of thousands of individuals had been injected with it. Not only was this virus responsible for cancer in the vaccine recipients, but it was associated with DNA damage passed on through sexual contact as well as to their unborn children. Evidence of SV40 is still being found in brain tumours today.

Maybe, just maybe, the increased incidence of childhood cancers due to their greater vulnerability to all types of environmental factors, will sound an alarm somewhere, for somebody. Maybe, just maybe, the world will wake up and start to consider them, our most precious and vulnerable resource, and the impact of regulatory agencies decisions' on the health of humanity's future (the children of the Earth).
