About the film
It takes an average of 17 years for research evidence to become clinical treatment. How many die in the meantime?
Scientists are only now discovering that the commonly accepted view of cancer is wrong and that treatment based on old dogma is ineffective. The field of cancer research has become institutionally entrenched in the genetic view of cancer, attempting to force the evidence to fit the preferred, well-funded theory rather than be guided by data.
This documentary surfaces evidence-based, peer-reviewed and published research shaping a new cancer treatment paradigm that can improve cancer outcomes now.
Despite funding challenges, new research is beginning to show astonishing evidence that cancer can be treated differently. Interest has grown dramatically in the past six years as experiments have yielded unquestionable results, generating a flurry of case studies and small human trials. The results of these trials are just beginning to be released offering previously unmatched hope for cancer treatment.
Sadly, without the ability to profit from these therapies, potential treatments are left to languish in medical journals as people who could benefit are left to suffer.
This film will throw a spotlight on the potential of these clinically-proven, safe, effective therapies that can be used in conjunction with conventional treatment to dramatically improve outcomes.
Discussions of cancer are notoriously fraught and this film will make no claims except to relate published research and no recommendations except that the viewer consult with their informed medical team.
One month after my 40th birthday I was diagnosed with terminal, stage 4 lung cancer that spread to my eye, liver, four tumors in my brain, and more than a dozen lymph nodes throughout my chest, neck and abdomen. My prognosis of six to eight months with conventional treatment seemed optimistic. My doctors were focused on making me comfortable. I was dying.
One year later I was cancer free.
In that intervening year I devoted myself to studying the metabolic theory of cancer and researching the cutting-edge, evidence-based therapies that are just now being published. I contacted the heads of promising studies and was a nagging voice in their email inbox. I attended scientific conferences and met with the doctors and scientists who are shifting the cancer paradigm. I’m proud to now consider them my friends and am deeply grateful for their participation in this film.
When I finally achieved no active disease, coloring my overwhelming joy was burning anger that so few people are aware of these published, life changing treatments — including most oncologists. It’s not their fault. Current metabolic therapies involve lifestyle treatments that can’t be patented and inexpensive, off-label drugs whose patents have already expired. There are no cute pharmaceutical reps to evangelize them to doctors or conglomerates paying for slick TV ads with terrifying disclaimers. Instead, there is study after study quietly published in journals some doctors probably haven’t read since medical school.
Clinicians who are aware of the research are unable to recommend therapies that aren’t FDA approved standard of care without risks to their practice. Therapies don’t become standard of care without hundreds of millions of dollars worth of trials. Trials and marketing campaigns aren’t done unless there’s a chance of recouping their cost.
I recognize that I am incredibly privileged to have the background, education and interest that allowed me to wade through oceans of research to find the science that works.
Survival shouldn’t only be for the privileged.
