A New Hypothesis on Spontaneous Remission of Cancer

Part 4: Social and economic impact

The news of a real breakthrough in cancer treatment is going to be greeted with great joy and relief. Cancer is one of the most dreaded diseases in the world today. It is responsible for the deaths of millions of people worldwide. In the United States alone it kills 350,000 people annually. However once the general population realizes that the phenomenon of spontaneous remission of cancer has been occurring for hundreds of years they will be shocked by the fact that most cancer researchers had not given it the attention it deserves. The general public will also be informed of the incredible work of William Coley and how it was generally ignored despite some promising results. Most people will soon realize that this breakthrough should have occurred decades ago. Their jubilation will then be replaced anger. Anger due to the unnecessary pain and suffering endured by cancer patients as a result of the disease or the toxic treatments administered.

Most people will find it hard to believe that a treatment so simple could have eluded thousands of brilliant scientists working in the numerous cancer research institutes. But the fact of the matter is very few of these organizations are interested in researching spontaneous remission. Most of these organizations [especially those that are privately funded] have become like the pharmaceutical companies they depend on for financial support. They have become obsessed with the idea of discovering a new molecule that can treat various malignancies. This is mainly due to the perception that only novel molecules can be patented. Therefore most research being carried out today as far as new cancer treatments are concerned is geared towards potentially profitable new molecules. However publicly funded research institutes are supposed to approach cancer with a broader view. Such public institutes should seriously investigate alternative views of cancer treatment as well as apparently strange phenomenon as spontaneous regression. For example, does the National Cancer Institute have any theory regarding spontaneous remission? Does the NCI keep any statistics regarding spontaneous remission? These are the kind of questions that the NCI director might be asked, by a special congressional committee that will be investigating this issue in the near future.

The economic impact will be much more dramatic. The pharmaceutical companies specializing in cancer chemotherapies will be greatly affected by the losses that will definitely incur, as their products will certainly be declared obsolete. Drug regulatory agencies like the FDA will have no choice but to ban the use of most chemicals used in cancer therapy today.

Oncologists and cancer researchers will not be spared. Many researchers will find themselves jobless since most of their funding is obtained from pharmaceutical companies. Most individual donations will probably cease once the general public gets the perception that the war on cancer is finally over. Doctors involved in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer will notice a marked reduction in the demand for their services.


In conclusion, I believe that the metabolic therapies outlined above will form the basis of a new modality of cancer treatment. A new type of treatment that is exactly what health care providers and consumers had been hoping for, an effective and cheap method of eliminating cancer forever.

In future, the failure by cancer researchers to seriously study spontaneous remission will be regarded as the biggest error in the history of modern medicine. A mistake, that caused a lot of unnecessary suffering and loss of life.
