One Answer to Cancer
Answer to Cancer by Dr William Kelley. This book was first written in 1967
and has helped thousands of people overcome various cancers over many years. It
provided the basic concepts and several strategies for this web site based on
the critical relationship between pancreatin enzymes and cancer.~500kB.

the Topicalinfo web site maintains damaged stem cells rather than normal cells
Natural Killer Cells vs Mouse
Natural killer cells This 2002 paper helps establish
that natural killer cells are an effective way to kill the
trophoblast cells of pregnancy. The theory presented on the Topicalinfo web site links cancer with trophoblast-like cells arising from
damage to stem cells that are scattered throughout the body.

Fats and Skin Cancer
Polyunsaturated Oils and Cancer will make you think twice about
using margarine because studies show that common vegetable oils suppress the immune system and promote cancer growth. In this last century there has
been an unprecedented dietary change from saturated fats to polyunsaturated fats and oils – and cancer rates have soared.
Fats & Breast Cancer has implicating information about trans and polyunsaturated fats that should also apply to skin cancer.
Skin cancer studies on mice points at the combination of sunlight and polyunsaturated
fats being necessary for skin cancer. Also reports that a "grazing diet" is much worse than fixed meals with regards to
skin cancer incidence. Finally, PABA based sunscreens are not effective at
preventing skin cancer.
