Raymond Francis’ thoughts on cancer
Low Oxygen Levels Drive Cancer Growth
. . . what this means to you In my 2011 breakthrough book, Never Fear Cancer Again, I identified a deficiency of oxygen metabolism inside of cells as the prime cause of cancer…
Now a new study in the Journal of Molecular Cell Biology has reached the same conclusion: low oxygen levels in cells is the primary cause of uncontrollable tumor growth. This runs counter to the widely accepted belief in conventional medicine that genetic mutations are responsible for cancer growth. Yet this gene theory has never been proven. It is not possible to explain the high rates of cancer around the world by chance genetic mutations alone. Numerous studies have found low oxygen levels in cells as a contributing factor in cancer development, but none concluded it was the driving force in cancer growth. What was proven in this study is what I concluded from my own research — low oxygen levels in cells is the primary cause of uncontrollable tumor growth.
So if hypoxia, or low oxygen levels, is a key driver of cancer, what does that mean to you?
First, it explains why conventional cancer treatments don’t work. Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery do nothing to improve oxygen metabolism in the cells, and in fact they decrease oxygen metabolism, making matters even worse. This is why most cancer patients die from their treatments and not from their cancer.
Second, it pinpoints a range of factors which need to be addressed in preventing or reversing cancer. Never Fear Cancer Again explains all of this, starting with diet: get off the Big Four — sugar, wheat, processed oils and dairy/excess animal protein. Then eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and get on a high-quality supplement program.
The bottom line is cancer is not a scary, uncontrollable monster. Cancer is a biochemical process that is now sufficiently understood so that almost all cancer can be prevented and reversed. Since almost half the American population is now projected to get cancer in their lifetime, everyone should read Never Fear Cancer Again to learn how to prevent and reverse this disease.

New Study Shows “Cancer is Preventable
. . . there is no need to fear cancer Cancer seems to strike innocent victims without rhyme or reason. But when you take a closer look, behind every cancer lie a number of factors which, together, made it inevitable. What’s encouraging is that knowing these factors puts us in control; it gives us the power to prevent cancer. “The biggest misconception about cancer prevention is that it’s ineffective,” says Dr. Patricia Bloom, of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, commenting on a new study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine. This study concluded that half of all the cancers could be prevented by applying what we already know about three primary factors in causing cancer: tobacco smoking, obesity and lack of physical activity.
This study is on the right track, but the truth is almost all cancer can be prevented. Never Fear Cancer Again provides an in-depth understanding of the cancer process and all of the factors that can contribute to creating it. With this knowledge, you can make it almost impossible for your body to develop cancer.
Although many cancers are reversible, don’t wait until you already have it. The American Cancer Society predicts that almost half of those living today will get cancer at some point during their lives — so everyone needs to understand how to prevent cancer.

No Matter What Form, Cancer is Cancer
. . and it’s prevented and reversed in the same way We get many questions about specific types of cancer — what to do for lung cancer, what to do for leukemia, what to do for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The answer will be the same no matter what your cancer diagnosis is.
Cancer is a process that expresses itself in different areas of the body, but all the different forms of cancer are caused by the same factors, and are prevented and reversed in the same ways. These causes and the steps to take for prevention and reversing any type of cancer are explained in Never Fear Cancer Again.
Fruits & Vegetables: What Is a Serving and How Many Servings a Day Should I Have?
. . . fresh fruit and vegetable consumption is one of the best ways to prevent disease The most important thing you can do to prevent cancer and many other diseases is to eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. As reported in Never Fear Cancer Again, people who eat the most fruits and vegetables suffer only half as much cancer as those who don’t. But how much is enough? Health benefits appear to start at 5 servings a day, but 10-12 servings would be best: 2-4 servings of fruit and 6-10 servings of vegetables.
How much is a serving? Generally, it’s 1/2 cup of raw or cooked produce. There are two exceptions to this: for the leafy greens, it’s a full cup raw (although 1/2 cup cooked), and for dried fruits, one serving equals 1/4 cup.
That’s not very much. It’s the equivalent of about 4 large strawberries;16 grapes;1 large stalk of celery;5 broccoli florets;1/4 of small cantaloupe;1 medium carrot;1 large plum, half of a large orange, banana, bell pepper or sweet potato; or half of a medium apple, grapefruit or pear.
Yet, if you don’t count potatoes (french fries are often considered a vegetable!), the Harvard School of Public Health reports that the average American gets just 3 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. They cite studies showing higher consumption of fruits and vegetables lowers the risk of getting cancer; cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure; and the eye diseases associated with aging — cataracts and macular degeneration.
(One easy way to integrate more fruits and vegetables into your diet is making delicious blended drinks in a VitaMix.)
