Dying of Leukemia, With No Scientific Credentials, John Kanzius Invents an Exciting New Approach to Treating Cancer

CBS show 60 Minutes profiled John Kanzius–retired broadcast executive, dying leukemia patient, and self-taught inventor. Kanzius has invented a new approach to cancer therapy. In his Florida garage, he has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of his own money, to improve his focused RF thermal therapy for cancer.

In collaboration with surgical oncologist Steven Curley at MD Anderson Medical Center in Texas, Kanzius has worked against time–his own slow losing battle with leukemia–to develop a safe and effective therapy that could start saving lives.Kanzius suspected that nano-particles of metal might work particularly well for receiving the heat from the RF energy, and heating tumours. So oncologist Curley contacted nanotechnolgist Richard Smalley–Nobel Prize winning discoverer of the buckyball–to request a vial of Smalley’s nanoparticles to test Kanzius’ theory in mice. Although Smalley was highly skeptical of Kanzius’ intuition–he said the idea “wouldn’t work”–Curley and Kanzius proceeded to test Smalley’s nanoparticles in the mice. The RF + nanoparticle approach worked brilliantly.

So we have yet another example where experts are proven wrong by amateur scientists and inventors!

Richard Smalley initially thought that the radiowave to heat up metal nanoparticle technique to cook cancer tumors would not work. Richard’s scientific intuition was that this would completely fail. He was converted into being a believer when proven wrong with successful experimentation. __NextBigFuture

And sadly, Richard Smalley himself died of lymphoma not long after changing his mind about Kanzius RF cancer tx.

Kanzius himself expects no personal benefit to ever come to him from his hard work and years of toil on RF thermal cancer therapy. But he hopes to live long enough to see the first patient successfully treated by his device.

But if this one does work, it most likely won’t be developed in time to help the man who invented it. John Kanzius may have the option of a bone marrow transplant that could buy him more time, but after six years of chemo it would be another grueling ordeal.

“Did you ever say, ‘I’m not going to do this anymore. I’m not going to put myself through it,’?” Stahl asked.

“Yes. I said that-only about a year and a half ago,” Kanzius replied. “I changed my mind because I think with all the research that’s going on with the institutions, that maybe, I’d like to be around for the first patient to get treated and just have a smile.”

“Oh my God,” Stahl said.

“And then I don’t care anymore,” Kanzius replied. __60Minutes

Why is it that we are encouraged to drink milk?

Because of its calcium right?

Well, where do cows get their food from?

The grass!  The grass is green and it contains huge
amounts of calcium, as well as the other alkalizing

We have been brainwashed into believing that cow's
milk and dairy are essential for us to grow big and
strong.I don'tthink is right especially when you
consider the following...

Cow's milk provides 118 mg of calcium/100 g.
The daily recommended intake (depending on the authority)
is between 800 - 1200 mg of calcium per day.

Therefore, to meet daily requirements, and assuming that
dairy is a balanced source of calcium (which it is not),
you would need toconsume at minimum 0.88 - 1.22 liters
of 2% milk per day(considering 1 g of 2% milk = 1.1 ml)!
 That's four to five 250 ml cups
of milk per day.  That's insane!

Dairy is the most common food allergen in the world!
After the age of 2, our body no longer produces the
enzyme lactase to breakdown lactose (sugar in dairy).
This leads to a myriad ofproblems including bloating,
gas, indigestion, skin problems
(such as eczema), and excess mucus production.

There is an alternative to dairy however
(and it's not soy milk).

PARSLEY – Medicinal Uses

  • Tea may be used as an enema. Chinese and German herbologists recommend parsley tea to help control high blood pressure, and the Cherokees used it as a tonic to strengthen the bladder. It is also often used as an emmenagogue.
  • Parsley also appears to increase diuresis by inhibiting the Na+/K+-ATPase pump in the kidney, thereby enhancing sodium and water excretion while increasing potassium reabsorption. It is also valued as an aquaretic.
  • When crushed and rubbed on the skin, parsley can reduce itching in mosquito bites.
  • When chewed, parsley can freshen bad breath.

Health risks

  • Parsley should not be consumed as a drug or supplement by pregnant women. Parsley as an oil, root, leaf, or seed could lead to uterine stimulation and preterm labor
  • Parsley is high (1.70% by mass,  in oxalic acid, a compound involved in the formation of kidney stones and nutrient deficiencies.
  • Parsley oil contains furanocoumarins and psoralens which leads to extreme photosensitivity if used orally.
  • Parsley seeds contain a high level of oil and are a diuretic.
