At the time I started research on July 25, 2013, my partner was in Nissei Hospital in Osaka, Japan, getting ready for breast cancer surgery. According to pre-surgery, it hadn't spread to other parts of her body but there was still the possibility.
Surgery was successful on July 29, 2013 and what was removed was sent to a lab; the result will come back in around two weeks. By then she should be out of the hospital and will stay at her sister's house and undergo radiation therapy before returning to the United States. Thus my interest is how to help her keep the problem from recurring.
Having now read "Pink Ribbon Blues," "Art.Rage.Us," and "Your Life in Your Hands" I fail to see how Western style medicine/surgery is going to keep the problem from recurring.
I spent quite some time reviewing "Your Life in Your Hands" which turned out to be more than 6,000 words so I'll only post my conclusion here:
P-121 "I have not had a day's serious illness since my treatment for cancer. Indeed, many irritating problems that had troubled me for years, such as cold sores, throat infections, thrush, candida, brittle nails which often had infections around their base, and recurrent cystitus, have all cleared up. Also, since I adopted the Plant Program, my rate of tooth decay has decreased markedly. I have given the diet to sixty-three woman, all of who remain cancer-free. These women range from the 70-year-old mother of a Canadian friend, with advanced breast cancer that had spread to her bones, to a young English woman whose breast cancer was diagnosed when she was breast feeding her first baby. The five women who refused to use it or "cheated" have all sadly had recurrences or have died."
Given my background, it looks to me that Plant was not in the best of health as witnessed by those "many irritating problems" that troubled her for years and once the dairy products were gone her body was able to take care of all of them including cancer. As for the sixty-three other people, who knows. Maybe they were in good enough health to deal with cancer and wouldn't have come down with it even though they ate dairy products, or perhaps they also had "many irritating problems" that had troubled them for years. As for the five women who refused to eat it, we know nothing more than that. Perhaps the dairy products were part of the problem, but maybe not. Altogether, her evidence doesn't convince me.
According to my experience, in general Western medicine is up to helping people deal with illness once it's in evidence, but fails to bring about good health such that illnesses don't appear. Part of this is because many westerners think they're in good health as long as they don't go to a doctor.
Again according to my experience, Traditional Chinese Medicine is more oriented toward maintaining good health because for who knows how many years you only went to your doctor when you're not sick. If you got sick, the doctor had failed.
