To the Editor:
“My Uncle had been on a regimen of many medicines for several years. Heart pills, blood pressure pills, gout medicine and other drugs for prevention or control of various disorders. When he developed stomach cancer, the primary disease well documented by the Faulkner Hospital in Boston, MA, I attributed it to the many drugs he was using. Doctors adamantly disagreed and put him on chemotherapy which they discontinued after my uncle suffered a heart attack within hours after his second treatment. The chemotherapy was discontinued; but my uncle was told to continue with his usual drug therapy that consisted of 9 pills a day.
“At this time, without the Doctor’s knowledge or consent, I convinced my uncle to embark on an alkaline diet. A diet consisting mainly of fruit and vegetables, and one that disallowed the use of any medicines. Within a few weeks an endoscopy showed that the cancer was completely gone.
“Months have gone by. My uncle still goes in for checkups. The cancer is gone. He has never returned to the pills that the doctors insist he could not do without. To this day the doctors assume he is still on his prescribed medications. We hesitate to tell them the truth since we still believe that some forms of medical treatment are beneficial and we would not want to alienate the doctors or the insurance provider.
“Years have gone by. My uncle, now at age 89, welcomes any investigation into this matter, and is living proof that the pills he was taking, as many as 270 a month, were not only unnecessary, but harmful, since his vital signs are now better than ever.
“In my opinion, this is a cancer breakthrough. Herein may lay the answer to the health care crisis. Herein may lay the answer to why a rich nation is made to grovel. Herein lies the question, Has the Medical Industry grown so powerful and self-centered as to become a danger to our society?”
