GERMAN CANCER BREAKTHROUGH another alternative to chemodeath & Marijuana as a neurotoxin!

GERMAN CANCER BREAKTHROUGH, by Andrew Scholberg, Online Publishing & Marketing, PO Box 1076, Lexington, VA, 2008

Most of you know that there is NO way I would consider ANY chemotherapy. I consider all so-called chemotherapy poison. Hopefully it will someday go the way of other ridiculous treatments that at one time were the mainstay of allopathic medicine, to list just a few:

Bloodletting
Leeches
Arsenic
Mercury
Silver-Mercury fillings
Antimony
Internal mammary ligation
Suturing the jugular vein to the carotid artery!

Indeed I predict that chemotherapy will someday join EXTRAORDINARY DELUSIONS AND THE MADNESS OF CROWDS, as one of the most fatal of all such delusions!? And of course it is used not only for cancer but for rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders.

The treatments reported in the book to be the most revolutionary from an American point of view, are:

Hyperthermia

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (actually is done by a few Americans physicians and does?? involve low doses of chemo) I personally would even reject this!? I do not like poison!

Mistletoe
Local hyperthermia

IV mega dosages of vitamin C (done by a few American physicians)

There are also a wide variety of supportive therapies, including spiritual counseling, etc.?

You may want to review my article CANCER IS A FUNGUS. Personally, if I had cancer, I would opt for the German (incidentally some are Austrian) approach first, especially hyperthermia, and if that failed I’d go on to Italy!? I would also consult with my recommended intuitives and healers for spiritual guidance. I am not allowed to list the clinics the author recommends but you may consult veramedica@aol.com for advice.

Regional brain abnormalities associated with long-term heavy cannabis use.

CONTEXT: Cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in the developed world. Despite this, there is a paucity of research examining its long-term effect on the human brain.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether long-term heavy cannabis use is associated with gross anatomical abnormalities in 2 cannabinoid receptor-rich regions of the brain, the hippocampus and the amygdala. DESIGN: Cross-sectional design using high-resolution (3-T) structural magnetic resonance imaging. SETTING: Participants were recruited from the general community and underwent imaging at a hospital research facility.

PARTICIPANTS: Fifteen carefully selected long-term (>10 years) and heavy (>5 joints daily) cannabis-using men (mean age, 39.8 years; mean duration of regular use, 19.7 years) with no history of polydrug abuse or neurologic/mental disorder and 16 matched nonusing control subjects (mean age, 36.4 years).

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Volumetric measures of the hippocampus and the amygdala combined with measures of cannabis use. Subthreshold psychotic symptoms and verbal learning ability were also measured.

RESULTS: Cannabis users had bilaterally reduced hippocampal and amygdala volumes (P = .001), with a relatively (and significantly [P = .02]) greater magnitude of reduction in the former (12.0% vs 7.1%). Left hemisphere hippocampal volume was inversely associated with cumulative exposure to cannabis during the previous 10 years (P = .01) and subthreshold positive psychotic symptoms (P < .001). Positive symptom scores were also associated with cumulative exposure to cannabis (P = .048). Although cannabis users performed significantly worse than controls on verbal learning (P < .001), this did not correlate with regional brain volumes in either group.

CONCLUSIONS: These results provide new evidence of exposure-related structural abnormalities in the hippocampus and amygdala in long-term heavy cannabis users and corroborate similar findings in the animal literature. These findings indicate that heavy daily cannabis use across protracted periods exerts harmful effects on brain tissue and mental health.
