Your doctor won't like Healing Cancer from Inside Out, if he sits through it. In fact, he'll probably hate it. In this two-hour DVD documentary filmmaker Mike Anderson shows how the medical industry has focused on treating the symptoms of chronic diseases like cancer instead of concentrating on prevention.
Anderson has structured his film in two parts: Part 1 - Curing Cancer and Part 2 - Healing Cancer. Part 1 emphasizes how the medical profession has worked to prevent and even block alternative therapies and developed a standardized approach to treatments for medical conditions. Doctors who deviate from the accepted standard treatment can lose their licenses, even go to jail. Part 2 deals with diet and lifestyle as the real cancer fighters.
The standardized approach to medical treatment for cancer is focused on pharmaceuticals, chemotherapy, and radiation. Doctors pay scant attention to changes in diet and lifestyle as a treatment regimen. Anderson's father was a classic example of traditional medical treatment. A victim of Stage IV Melanoma, his father was diagnosed and sent home to die.
By contrast, Mary Harrington tells her story of being diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma. After seeking an alternative treatment that involved changing her diet and lifestyle, she is still alive to share her story. After ten months on her program, she was clear of cancer.
The film features a number of quotations that appear on screen. The one that summarizes the message of the documentary is a statement by Paul Stitt, Ph.D who says, "The cure for cancer will not be found under the microscope, it's on the dinner plate."
To those who feel that cancer has genetic causes, Anderson responds with a surprising statistic that says 2% of cancers can be traced to genetics. The real culprit in cancer is not bad genes but bad habits. Dr. John McDougall and Professor T. Colin Campbell appear on camera to say that diet and lifestyle are the real triggers for cancer. Both men espouse a vegan diet as a tool to prevent and treat chronic diseases.
Some amazing statistics show evolving dietary changes over mankind's history. For most of that history the diet was 95% whole plant foods. Today that has shrunk to 7%. The 5% animal food content has ballooned to 42% of the diet. At one point there were no refined foods, but today's diet contains 51%. As these changes occurred there were more cases of cancer.
Yet few medical authorities have come forward to promote dietary changes as either a cure or a preventive measure in the battle against cancer. In fact, Professor Barrie Cassileth, a spokesperson for the America Cancer Society, says, "No diet has ever been shown to cure cancer."
One memorable scene features Charlotte Gerson of the Gerson Institute who tells of a woman who compared conventional therapy with that offered by the Gerson Institute. The woman asked an oncologist to give her the names of 20 patients and learned that 18 were dead. Gerson gladly gave the woman the names of 20 patients at the Gerson Institute. Eighteen of them were still alive. Charlotte Gerson's husband Max Gerson, M.D. was hounded by the medical profession because he developed a natural treatment for degenerative diseases that featured organic vegetarian foods and juices, detoxification, and natural supplements.
Anderson concludes the film with this shocking dedication: "This film is dedicated to the millions of innocent people who put their blind faith in the cancer industry and unnecessarily suffered and died as a result."
Healing Cancer from Inside Out is a follow-up to Eating, Mike Anderson's pioneering production that showed the standard American diet as the "biggest cause of disease, disabilities, and death in the U.S. today." In this film he is highly critical of the medical profession and its arsenal of toxic chemical treatments for cancer that are doing more harm than good. All the while, doctors are ignoring and even suppressing alternative practices featuring diet and lifestyle changes that have benefited many people.
Sadly, changes will come slowly, if at all, because it is not financially rewarding for doctors to prescribe diet and lifestyle changes to cancer patients. So much money is invested in current chemical and surgical treatments that a large audience for this documentary would create a financial threat to the medical industry, the cancer industry, and the pharmaceutical companies. If people turned to dietary and lifestyle changes instead of the expensive treatments offered today, those industries would be devastated.
Mike Anderson deserves special kudos for his extensive research and his impressive packaging of information. In Healing Cancer from Inside Out he introduces ideas and information that are not welcome on mainstream media but MUST be presented to the American public. He has created an enlightening film that will benefit anyone who views it. This film NEEDS to be seen.
