Treatment for cancer will kill you a lot sooner than if, nothing were done at all, claims a prominent cancer researcher.
"My studies have proved conclusively that untreated cancer victims actually live up to four times longer than treated individuals," Dr. Hardin B. Jones told MIDNIGHT.
"For a typical type of cancer, people who refused treatment lived for an average of 12 1/2 years. Those who, accepted surgery and other kinds of treatment lived an average of only three years!
"Beyond a shadow of a doubt, radical surgery on cancer patients does more harm than good."
As for radiation treatment "Most of the time it makes not the slightest difference whether the machine is turned on or not."
Dr. Jones, a physiologist with the University of California Dept. of Medical Physics, has been studying cancer for more than 23 years.
He has traveled the world collecting data on the dreaded disease, and presented his findings to the American Cancer Society and medical schools.
Asked why 'the medical world has ignored his findings, he replied: "Frankly, I don't know the reasons. But they have probably become caught up in the tidal wave of individuals demanding treatment."
This has been shown especially in the type of bone cancer - osteogenic sarcoma - that affects the large knee joints, Dr. Jones said.
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's son, Ted Jr., suffered from that disease and his affected leg was amputated.
A surgeon is tempted to amputate, just for the relief of pain, Dr. Jones noted. "But, unfortunately, it seems to be only a question of time, usually, before the disease pops up again all over the body.
"I attribute this to the traumatic effect of surgery on the body's natural defense mechanisms," he said.
The body has a natural defense against every type of cancer, Dr. Jones maintained.
"Medical treatment seems to interfere with and mess up this natural resistance," he said.
"You see, it is not the cancer that kills the victim. It's the breakdown of the defense mechanism that eventually brings death."
Dr. Jones said he advocates less surgery and chemotherapy.
And he pooh-poohs what he said were claims by the medical profession of certain "cancer cures."
The fact remains, said Dr. Jones, that just as many people die today from cancer as they did in the year 1900. The mortality rate hasn't changed much.
"With every cancer patient who keeps in excellent physical shape and boosts his health to build up his natural resistance, there's a high chance the body will find its own defense against the cancer," he said.
"He may have many good years left in good health. He shouldn't squander them by being made into a hopeless invalid through radical medical intervention, which has zero chance of extending his life."
Dr. Jones agreed that lumps in the breasts should be checked out.
"But it's utter nonsense to claim that catching cancer symptoms early enough will increase the patient's chances of survival," he said.
"Not one medical scientist or study has proven that so in any way."
Furthermore, untreated breast cancer, cases show a life expectancy four times longer than treated ones, he averred.
"My wife and I have discussed what she would do if breast cancer was diagnosed in her," Dr. Jones continued.
"And we both agree she would do nothing as regards treatment, except to keep as healthy as possible.
"I guarantee she would live longer!
"For not only does radical surgery or chemotherapy do nothing to prolong a cancer victim's life, but that same victim will, in most cases, live a lot longer if he or she refuses, treatment."
