Study Shows that Chemotherapy Increases Cancer Growth and Cancer Cell Resistance to Treatment

Shannon BreseJun 2, '153 comments

In 2012, a study published in the scientific journal Nature, found that chemotherapy encouraged both the growth and spread of cancer cells, by damaging the healthy tissue that surrounded tumors.  Additionally, the study found that chemotherapy causes cancer cells to develop a resistance to this treatment, enhancing their defenses against chemotherapy treatment in the future.

A team of researchers at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, were the ones behind the study, observing first hand the cancer-enhancing effect of chemotherapy.  By poisoning the body with chemotherapy, investigators witnessed damage to non-cancerous cells, causing them to produce molecules that went on to encourage the growth of more cancer cells.

My 7 year old went through nearly a year of chemo and then 2 months of radiation. Now she is having to do a “more aggressive” chemo and likely radiation again. I am just now finding this information and I don’t know what to do?

This is so sad for those of us who did chemo. Did it in 2010 now cancer free.

Of course chemo is ineffective at curing cancer. Dr. Morse said it best, treating acidosis(which is the cause of all degenerative conditions) with acid forming substances(Chemo and other drugs) is insanity. You want alkaline forming substances(raw ripe fruit and herbs).
