oxygen and cancer

I am with dr weil on this quackery claim from brian clement


Can Oxygen Cure Cancer?
I have heard that disease cannot live in the presence of oxygen. What do you think of the claims that oxygen therapy can be used to treat cancer and other diseases?

– MARCH 18, 2014


The notion that oxygen might selectively destroy cancer cells goes back to the 1930s, when Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg, M.D., discovered that, compared to normal cells, cancer cells have a low respiration rate. He proposed that if cancer cells are adapted to survive and grow in low-oxygen environments, they would die off if exposed to higher levels of that element. While that may sound plausible, we now know that Dr. Warburg was wrong. Oxygen doesn’t slow cancer growth – in fact, tumors often grow rapidly in tissues well supplied with oxygenated blood. Nor does depriving tumors of oxygen stimulate their growth. Moreover, a study published in the Spring/Summer 1998 issue of Scientific Review of Alternative Medicine noted that since human tissues require 200 to 250 milliliters (ml) of oxygen per minute, the maximum additional amount that could be dissolved in all of the plasma of a normal weight adult would hardly be enough to make a difference in how much cancer cells would receive.

Despite these facts, you can readily find claims online and elsewhere that oxygen therapy using ozone or hydrogen peroxide can effectively treat cancer (as well as AIDS, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease). I’ve seen no credible evidence indicating that any of this is true. On its website, the American Cancer Society (ACS) notes that available scientific evidence does not support claims that increasing oxygen levels in the body will harm or kill cancer cells and explains that it is difficult to raise the oxygen level around the cancer cells in the middle of a tumor because the blood supply tends to be poor.

Nevertheless, these unproven therapies are in use at clinics in Mexico, the United States, and in Europe. Some involve introducing ozone gas under pressure into the rectum or vagina or injecting it into a muscle or under the skin. Another approach involves withdrawing blood from a patient, forcing ozone into it, and then returning it to the patient’s body.

Hydrogen peroxide treatment involves diluting this substance and then administering it orally, rectally, vaginally, or intravenously. This is particularly dangerous since large amounts can cause an arterial gas embolism, a condition that can lead to permanent lung damage and, sometimes, death. Indeed, in July 2006, the FDA warned consumers not to buy or use high-strength hydrogen peroxide products, including one sold as “35 Percent Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide,” for medicinal purposes because “they can cause serious harm or death when ingested.” The FDA noted that no evidence has been presented showing that hydrogen peroxide taken internally has any medical value and recommended that anyone using high-strength hydrogen peroxide stop immediately and consult their health care provider.

Bottom line: oxygen therapy is not a viable alternative to the proven treatments conventional medicine has to offer for cancer and other serious diseases.

Even when a vehicle (which is a pure mechanical thing )is not running properly, we don't just pour in more gas. There are many parts to consider.

Cancer cells have lost their intelligence, they attach each other. The body needs a cleansing and gradual rebuilding process for them to regain their natural state.

Oxygen and water are key elements in the normal and natural functioning of the cells.

Brian Clements is correct.

Oxygen in Food
By Brian Clement

Raw, vegan foods abound with oxygen in their cellular structure. This oxygen is derived through naturally occurring photosynthesis. Since animals exhaust this oxygen in the process of digestion and lactation, humans receive no residual oxygen in the consumption of meat and dairy food.

The cooking of even the healthiest vegan food eliminates all oxygen content (hence the reason our diets should largely consist of raw, vegan foods). Clinical research has revealed that oxygen within the living foods increase the ability of their nutrients to be synthesized by our cells. Additionally, from these studies we have concluded that the increased hemoglobin levels of formerly impaired patients increased, due in great part to their consumption of oxygen-rich foods.

Living food literally “breathes.” Anyone who has committed to a mostly raw diet for a significant length of time will recognize the difference between a cooked vegetable and a raw one, particularly if the vegetable is green: after eating an uncooked vegetable one feels clear-headed and buoyant.

The life force of a living food can be felt entering the body on cellular level. That is because the consumption of raw foods increases our body’s ability to deliver oxygen to our cells.

One of the first problems that is positively affected by a raw vegetable diet is anemia, the chronic lack of red blood cells. Often the common medical prescription is an increase in red meat, which it patently absurd. Ask why so many anemic people are still anemic after taking the doctor’s advice. It simply doesn’t work.

Actually, the idea is rather medieval, similar to the once-common belief that eating the blood of an animal would transfer the animal’s personality and good qualities to the person consuming it, or that injecting one’s self with animal blood would cure disease: eat the red meat of an animal, and your own red blood cells will increase. It’s simply absurd.

Anemia is caused by reduced oxygen delivery to the capillaries. Eating a food as dead and oxygen-depleted as meat will not help the situation. “Iron,” they say, “is what builds the blood.” This is a partially true statement; what they don’t realize is that only plant foods are rich in both oxygen and iron. For this combination, eat foods such as sprouted seeds and fresh deep-green vegetables.

Believe what you wish but no evidence exists to support Brian's claims and Nothing that you have said above supports Brian's claims.

It would take me all day to unpack the babbling pseudoscience packed into Brian's excerpt that you posted above.

He talks about medieval, then does the same thing by implying that we need to ingest oxygen to increase our oxygen. "Humans receive no residual oxygen"

Hes A dangerous quack who demonizes fruit then eats fruit and other foods containing fructose and glucose. And talks about fructose making us fat when people's eating fruit are lean. He's lost in his mind.
