Generations of doctors have sworn the Hippocratic Oath: “With regard to healing the sick, I will advise and order for them the best diet, according to my judgment and means; and I will take care that they suffer no hurt or damage”.

The staff with the snake is used as an emblem of the medical profession. Your doctor promises to eliminate the snake - the disease. The pharmaceutical industry has made himself master of the staff and filled it with drugs to heal every facet of your illness. No patient leaves the office without a prescription.

Cancer has increased tremendously over the past century. In Germany the mortality for cancer was only 3,3% in 1900, and it climbed to over 20% in 1970. Today about half of all men and one-third of all women develop cancer and about 20% of all deaths are due to cancer. This is an impressive increase and seems to demonstrate that the increase in cancer prevalence is only a recent biological event. Cancer is now the most common cause of death in Western Europe, more frequent than Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Cardiovascular diseases and Diabetes (IHD). While COPD and IHD death rates decrease by improved health services, death rates from cancer have increased.  

Overall cancer rates are much lower in India than in western countries. U.S. men get 23 times more prostate cancer than men in India. Americans get between 8 and 14 times the rate of melanoma, 10 to 11 times more colorectal cancer, 9 times more endometrial cancer, 7 to 17 times more lung cancer, 7 to 8 times more bladder cancer, 5 times more breast cancer, and 9 to 12 times more kidney cancer. This is not mere 5, 10, or 20 percent more, but 5, 10, or 20 times more. Hundreds of percent more breast cancer, thousands of percent more prostate cancer—differences even greater than some of those found in the China Study.

Do you know that the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom for many years have the highest mortality from lung cancer in the world and that the mortality from breast cancer and prostate cancer also are very high compared to other countries? In 2012 cancer was the cause of 31% of all deaths in the Netherlands (Eurostat).
