ET Extra: Does Soda Cause Cancer? Apparently It Does

sugarcancer“As far as cancer is concerned, hormones produced by the body in response to sugar consumption also feed cancer cells. This means that every time you down a soda or eat a piece of cake, your body produces certain chemicals that tell cancer cells to not only start taking up sugar, but also to grow in size and spread.”
-from “New MRI research reveals cancer cells thrive on processed sugar” in The Watchers, 17 July 2013

Is diet soda any better? Apparently not. Please see “ET Extra: Does Diet Soda Cause Cancer?

ET EXTRA: Cancer Chemotherapy Causes Cancer

Here’s a summary of a recent study that helps explain why chemotherapy for cancer makes things worse: “Chemotherapy can backfire and boost cancer growth: study-AFP

This is nothing really new. Independent researchers have known for decades that chemotherapy doesn’t work. Many doctors know this and refuse to subject themselves to chemotherapy if they have cancer. Why does this treatment persist, despite decades of failure? Sadly, the reason appears to be because it makes a lot of money for the clinics that provide the treatment. For the same reason, if you’re receiving chemo don’t expect this study to trigger a phone call from your doctor with an apology, a refund, and a change in your regimen.

Cancer: How Bad Science Is Killing Us

“The failure to win “the war on cancer” has been blamed on many factors, from the use of mouse models that are irrelevant to human cancers to risk-averse funding agencies. But recently a new culprit has emerged: too many basic scientific discoveries, done in animals or cells growing in lab dishes and meant to show the way to a new drug, are wrong.”

ET Extra: Does Diet Soda Cause Cancer?

Click here to view an interesting study on the results of consuming aspartame, the “sugar free” ingredient in many diet sodas.

I have not seen independent confirmation of the results, but assuming that it’s not a hoax, it’s an impressive example of a good science investigation; i.e. a control population was established to minimize the effects of genetic variances, and all environmental variables were eliminated except for the consumption of aspartame.

ET applauds private citizens who take the time to apply good science to help answer important questions. (For another example, please see “McYukky Burgers“.)

ET EXTRA: Protecting Your Life: Zetia and Vytorin Probably Don’t Work, and May Cause Cancer

Engineering Thinking Extra Is A Short Review Of A Current Hot Topic

Drug Company Merck Gets The Shameful Behavior Label

“…Merck‘s clever marketers have spun straw into gold: Over the last seven years they have convinced doctors to prescribe $21 billion worth of Zetia and its sister drug, Vytorin … The drugs are on track to do $4 billion dollars in combined sales this year, despite multiple studies sugesting they fail to prevent clogged arteries.”

-Matthew Herper, “Zetia’s Miraculous Popularity,” 14 Dec 2009 issue of Forbes


“‘Based on the currently available information, FDA believes it is unlikely that Vytorin or Zetia increase the risk of cancer or cancer-related death, but at this time an association cannot be definitively ruled out,’ the agency said in a posting on its Web site Tuesday.

“The FDA’s views come after it finished a review of a clinical trial that shocked investors and the medical community when it showed an increased risk of cancer and deaths from cancer in patients taking Vytorin compared with those given a placebo.”

Engineering Thinking Extra Is A Short Review Of A Current Hot Topic

To this ardent student of the pathology of bad science, it has been become apparent that the mainstream approach to cancer — radiation and chemotherapy — has failed. The reasons for this failure will be explored later, but for now I urge you to read the following: “So Many Needless Cancer Deaths” by William Faloon.
