Verden brugte over $100 billion om året på kræft i 2015 i et år, hvor verdens højstbetalte CEO tjente et svimlende beløb på kræftpatienter. En stor del af dette bruges på kemoterapi, som er velkendt for at svække patienter, ofre deres immunsystem, og gøre dem modtagelige for følgeinfektioner, sygdomme og komplikationer.

Foruden disse bivirkninger, er det nu blevet opdaget, at mens kemoterapi virkelig dræber kræftceller, kan det også lede til udviklingen af mere aggressive kræftformer i lunger og andre vitale organer i kroppen. .

Et nyt forskningsstudie udført af Dr. George Karagiannis fra Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University i New York forklarer, hvordan det fungerer. Studiet bærer titlen Neoadjuvant chemotherapy induces breast cancer metastasis through a TMEM-mediated mechanism, Dr. Karagiannis' studie fokuserer på brystkræft, og ser på det i forhold til utilsigtede konsekvenser af kemoterapi.


Many are given chemotherapy before surgery, but the new research suggests that, although it shrinks tumours in the short term, it could trigger the spread of cancer cells around the body.

It is thought the toxic medication switches on a repair mechanism in the body which ultimately allows tumours to grow back stronger. It also increases the number of 'doorways' on blood vessels which allow cancer to spread throughout the body. [Source]
In short, chemotherapy is now shown to in some cases increase the likelihood that cancer will spread throughout the patient's body. The cancer cells are reacting to chemotherapy by dispersing throughout the body to look for new hosts.
By studying the process of intravasation or entry of cells into the vasculature, Karagiannis et al. discovered that, in addition to killing tumor cells, chemotherapy treatment can also increase intravasation. Groups of cells collectively known as tumor microenvironment of metastasis (TMEM) can serve as gateways for tumor cells entering the vasculature, and the authors discovered that several types of chemotherapy can increase the amounts of TMEM complexes and circulating tumor cells in the bloodstream.

Karagiannis discovered that mice exposed to chemotherapy saw an increase the number of cancer cells circulating throughout the body and lungs. This research finally offers a scientific explanation of why so many patients see their cancer spread into other parts of their bodies once chemo/radiation treatment begins.

Having isolated this effect in breast cancer cases only, the research opens the door to examine the possibility of this happening in patients with other types of cancer who choose chemotherapy.
In this study we only investigated chemotherapy-induced cancer cell dissemination in breast cancer. We are currently working on other types of cancer to see if similar effects are elicited. ~Dr. George Karagiannis
Final Thoughts

There are many approaches to treating cancer, and shockingly many of the natural approaches which require few if any drugs are actually illegal in our society. Furthermore, regarding breast cancer, mammograms are known to be dangerous, the number of false positive cancer test results is shockingly high, and in many cases women are being treated for cancer when they don't even have it.

The preferred mainstream cancer treatment has become a means of capitalizing on human suffering, and while it has long been suspected that chemo can do more harm than good, we now have research indicating that this is indeed the case. Dr. Karagiannis' study adds a very significant piece of the puzzle of why the contemporary model of cancer care should be abandoned in favor of natural treatments.
