How To Stop Cancer (The Email)

I got an email forward from my sister recently.  It’s one of those emails with lots of ‘>>>>’ in them.  The topic of the email was a cancer update from John Hopkins, the famous medical university in the US.

To be honest when I saw the email I had my doubts that it was real.  There are two reasons for my doubts.  But before I explain further, here’s the content of the email:

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumour size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumour destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like

NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.


1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.  Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap  and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Like I said, there were two reasons I was sceptical.  First, any email you get like this is likely to be false.  There are tons of emails like this floating on the internet.  The second reason is because the advice it contained was quite good!  I don’t know much about plastic containers in microwaves and freezers, but I know quite a bit about health and nutrition.  These are areas I have an active interest in, and of course I happened to be married to Bahrain’s leading nutritionist 🙂

You see, you could say there is this kind of war between the traditional western medicine practitioners and the alternative medicine fraternity.  Generally speaking, the traditional western medicine crowd scoff at alternative therapies, they believe in medicine, chemotherapy, radiation etc.  Basically, their view is “what can we do to, or inject into the body that will get rid of the disease or cancer?”  Whereas the alternative treatment group’s view is “how can we help the body heal itself?”

They come from fundamentally different view points.  Hence my surprise that John Hopkins would actually acknowledge things like stopping sugar, salt and dairy.  In the alternative world, these are essential steps in stopping the spread of cancer.

The rift goes much deeper actually.  But now we’re bordering on conspiracy theories and the like.  It is said – allegedly – that the cancer treatment fraternity does not want alternative cures to become popular because otherwise they would lose their jobs, not to mention millions (or rather billions) of dollars worth of revenue.  It’s amazing what greed can do.

There must be thousands of success stories of people being cured from cancer and other malignant diseases just from changing their diet and lifestyle.  It’s not often you hear doctors talking about this, do you?

Now please don’t misunderstand, I’m not suggesting that all doctors are evil or anything like that.  I think Humanity owes a a debt of gratitude to the field of medicine.  What I am saying is that some doctors go too far in dismissing alternative therapies that conflict with their own views.  And I think the field of traditional, western medicine has done a lot of harm in some cases by lobbying for and enabling laws that ban some successful forms of alternative medicine.

Let me tell you from observation, I’ve met a lot more healthy alternative practitioners that I have medical doctors.  Most of them are unhealthy, overweight and out of shape.  Not very good examples of wellness, right?  When you think about it, the field that doctors work in is called “medicine”.  It’s not called wellness, disease prevention or health… it’s called medicine.  That already tells you a lot about the mindset of that group.

Let me also add this however, the field of alternative medicine/therapies also has it’s faults.  The thing is there are a lot of quack practitioners out there that give the rest of the community a bad reputation.  Let me give you an example, I’ve heard that some people use magnets to heal the body.  Is this real or hocus-pocus? What about using energy crystals to heal the body?  Though I always try to keep an open mind, these therapies sound fake to me.

But what about healing cancer through good nutrition?  Is this real or hocus-pocus too?  I know for a fact that it’s real, and that it works.  But my point is where do you draw the line?  What’s legit and what’s mumbo-jumbo?  That’s the problem with the alternative medicine field – it’s hard to tell fact from fiction.  It’s a lot easier to recognise and understand the letters MD and PhD, than the ones many alternative practitioners have – if they have them at all.

Going back to the supposed John Hopkins email.  It turns out it’s a complete fake.  I did some research and found this myth busting site.  According to, “… the university said, ‘John Hopkins did not publish the email, entitled ‘Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins,’ nor do we endorse its contents.”  Of course they don’t 🙂

Anyway, if you want to look into this more, I suggest you look at the Gerson Institute.  Dr. Max Gerson developed his cancer treatment system in the 1940’s!

PS  Here’s an interesting video of Dr. Fred Bisci taken from the Renegade Health Show, by Kevin Gianni.  Dr. Bisci is almost 80 and he’s in perfect health.  Listen to what he has to say:

    what do u have to say to somebody whos got brain cancer level 4? as far as anything.

    Dear Mr. Gosaibi,

    It has come to my attention that there are a lot of malignant tumours multiplying in your brain producing loads of mucopurulent fibrinous exudate which comes up from your anus and directly out of your mouth …due to reverse peristalsis… it happens because like attracts like… so all the shit down there gets attracted to the shit in your cranial cavity… after which you spew it out to share with us all.
    The genetic cause for this seems to be the bullshit gene which got activated when you saw dollars in the charlatan enterprise…

    ps..ppl. we love you…if you want to save yourself keep away from this RETARD. Doing a bit of research will show you how dangerously misleading all this is. A bit of truth mixed in with a load of bullcrap.

    Dear Mr. Al Gosaibi,
    I think you’d better stick to the field you are competent about.
    Surely, there is nothing wrong with advising people to have a healthy diet – for their well-being, as a precautionary measure, or to support recovery. But: NEVER do it under the headline “how to stop cancer”. This is simply irresponsible!
    Whoever has cancer or even the slightest suspicion of having the disease should go to the doctor immediately. To the specialist, that is, not to a martial arts trainer who covers up his ignorance with a big mouth.
    You think doctors stick too much to medicine? I can’t see what’s your problem with that. “Medicine” comes from the Latin word for “healing”, and that’s exactly what a good doctor’s work is and should be about.
    I wish you will never have to deal with that problem in reality, about which you are ranting so carelessly.
    Sincerely yours
    PS.: If your accuse the doctors of being too much money minded – you know the old saying about throwing stones while sitting in a glass house … ?

    Dear Mr Gosaibi,

    I totally agree with aysha and anne marie
    the truth is you are just misguiding people here,specially people with cancer.I am a medical student and after reading your post i was just laughing out so loud till my stomach hurt.because all what you have said is bullshit! if you can talk a lot about cancer and you do not know what a neoplasm is then its very suprising how you can say you are very good in health and nutrition.
    could you give us proof of any studies that show cancer cells feed on sugar. alot of food contain sugar. from breads to healthy fruits and vegetable by saying this you are misguiding cancer patients.did you know that people with cancer anyways suffer from loss of appetite and you are asking them to cut down various foods.
    what i think you are doing is trying to advertise your “DREAM BODY” center in bahrain and try to push people towards your dream body you also know that cancer CANNNNOOOOOOT GROW WHERE THERE IS NO BLOOD SUPPLY?infact cancer cells release their own growth factors to build up more blood vessels around them so that they can spread to other parts of the body.
    its a pity how you have targeted the right set of people i suggest you remove this post off. people with cancer are desperate and upset they would belive anything they see and this is what you are trying to do.cancer can only be treated with surgery or chemotheraphy or radiotheraphy and still even after that a lot of cancers have a low 5 year survival rate…i think miss annmarie is right you should just stick to your speciality thats if u have any!
