Too much testing is dangerous: Prostate cancer screening does NOT save lives, puts men at risk according to groundbreaking study

(Natural News) Routine cancer screening is notorious for giving false positives, leading to unnecessary diagnoses for benign cancers. False diagnoses for prostate cancer are commonplace, and they devastate patients emotionally. When someone is told they have cancer they are often stricken with anxiety. The false diagnosis also leads to an aggressive, expensive, and many times deadly treatment protocol consisting of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Significant complications may result too, including incontinence and impotence. Those who survive the unnecessary treatment protocol are often told they are cancer-free, making the unnecessary testing and treatment protocol appear effective when it was really just an expensive scam.

Regular screening for prostate cancer for men over fifty years old may also miss the more serious cancers, leaving patients with a false sense of assurance in their own health. Too much testing is an emotional danger, either burdening patients with a false diagnosis or leading them on a course where nothing is done to improve their health even when there are real cancer conditions inside their body.

A study conducted by Cancer Research U.K. investigated the outcomes for all men over fifty who had undergone prostate specific antigen tests (PSA) and compared the outcomes to men who underwent no prostate cancer screening. The death rate for the regularly tested was no different than the death rate for those who didn’t get a prostate exam at all!

Traditional cancer treatments cause inflammation, promoting aggressive tumor growth, according to study

(Natural News) Independent media leaders like Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and editor of Natural News, have long been vilified by the mainstream media for daring to insist that chemotherapy actually causes cancer. Time and again, Natural News has published articles based on scientific studies that prove the inefficiency and downright danger of conventional cancer treatments. Now, yet another study has been published confirming that link.

The study, conducted by a research team from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, found that the dead and dying cancer cells created by chemotherapy trigger inflammation which in turn promotes “aggressive tumor growth.”

“In this study we demonstrate that chemotherapy-generated debris from dead and dying tumor cells can stimulate tumor growth, which has pivotal implications for the treatment of cancer patients,” said Dipak Panigrahy, MD, the study’s lead author and an assistant professor at BIDMC’s Department of Pathology. “Conventional cancer therapy designed to kill tumor cells is inherently a double-edged sword.” [Emphasis added]

News Wise notes that this research reinforces what the medical community has known since at least the 1950s, but it is the first study to try to determine the exact molecular mechanisms that cause this phenomenon.

Researchers have long understood that there is a distinct link between inflammation and cancer. A study published in the journal Nature in 2010, for example, noted:

Recent data have expanded the concept that inflammation is a critical component of tumour progression. Many cancers arise from sites of infection, chronic irritation and inflammation. It is now becoming clear that the tumour microenvironment [the infrastructure supporting the tumor], which is largely orchestrated by inflammatory cells, is an indispensable participant in the neoplastic process, fostering proliferation, survival and migration.
