Does the Government have

a Cure for Cancer?

There are many forms of cancer, and they can touch the lives of the very young to the very old. They don’t discriminate when it comes to location, to gender, or even to the amount of money that someone makes. Cancer research has been in motion for a very long time. Money is dedicated to finding a cure and in the meantime, to offering care that can increase the chances of winning the battle. Does the Government have a Cure for Cancer?

There is a conspiracy theory though that the government actually already has the cure for cancer. It was found more than 50 years ago but kept very secret according to those that believe it has been hidden. If the conspiracy theory is right, the Mayo Clinic actually found the cure.

Many people are very uneasy at that very thought! Just about everyone out there had been affected by cancer in some way. It may have been them personally, a loved one, a co-worker, or even the significant other of a person they knew. Why would the government hide the cure for cancer is the big question?

The conspiracy theory activists believe the government wants to be able to make a significant amount of money from cancer treatments and medications. They also use cancer as a way of keeping the population at a controllable level. Some of the evidence they try to bring into the equation is that in 1934 at the University of Southern California a cancer clinic was created.

The doctors and bacteriologists were able to prove three things with their testing:

  • Cancer is caused by a micro organism

  • Those microorganisms can be destroyed without any pain to the patient

  • The effects of cancer can be reversed

The USA government is quick to remind people that there are many forms of cancer. There isn’t just an isolated type of microorganism. It can be different for people and so can the rate of it spreading. How a patient responds to medication is also different. There are more than 200 identified types of cancer and each of them can require a different strategy to cure it.

They also remind patients that approximately 70% of all children diagnosed with cancer are able to successfully beat it. For adults, chemotherapy is a very good source of treatment. The results are very high for those with the following types of cancer:

  • Hodgkin’s Disease

  • Leukemia

  • Testicular cancer

Most types of skin cancer respond very well to surgery. Radiation can be a good source of ending cancer for those that have it in the larynx or thyroid.

One of the cancer cure conspiracy theory leaders is David Zuvrick. In his writings, he shares his feelings that pharmaceutical companies are getting rich from cancer treatments. There are also lots of scientists in the areas of research and development. All of these people would lose a large sum of money if the cure for cancer was shared.

It makes those that believe this conspiracy theory very angry and upset. They may be suffering from cancer or someone very close to them is. Feeling helpless due to the thought that there may be a cure out there but it isn’t readily available can be very hard to deal with.

On the other hand, there are those that think this is why such a conspiracy theory exists. No one wants to feel like there is no hope for them to get better. They may find some solace in the idea that there is a way for them to get better but that they can blame someone for not sharing it. When a person is ill, the mind can play tricks on them.

However, there are many experts out there that would love the fame and fortune that would accompany the world knowing the cured cancer. It could mean their name in history with a never ending legacy. It would almost certainly mean winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

Let’s not forget many people in politics, celebrities, those in research, and even medical professionals have been affected by cancer. There is also the risk that their family or friends will be affected by it. If they had a cure for it that was hidden away, it is plausible to think that they would put everything aside to get it and save their life or the life of someone they care about.

The Science Based Medicine website has a great deal of information that shows both sides of this. They carefully and thoroughly explore the issue of the cure for cancer conspiracy theory. You can check it out at:
