Answer for Cancer

Healthcare is hell. The more we get, the worse we feel. Sadly, doctors don’t know that trusted toxins and addictions are common, covert causes of sickness. So healthcare is a vicious cycle of toxins, addictions, and sickness, in which doctors first overlook the toxic, addictive causes of sickness, and then prescribe toxic, addictive drugs. I call this pervasive vicious cycle the “Toxic Craving Cycle”, since craving reflects addiction. Sadly, healthcare makes us sick, by burying us under layers of trusted toxins (vaccines, antibiotics, statins, psychotropics, chemotherapy) and addictions (sugar, chocolate, vanilla, caffeine, cola). To quote GB Shaw, "Science never solves one problem without creating ten more."
