Father Romano Zago, a Franciscan Friar and scholar, wrote the book Cancer Can Be Cured to reveal to the world an all natural Brazilian Recipe that contains the juice made from the whole leaf plant of Aloe Arborescens and honey that has been shown to rapidly restore the body's health so it heals itself of all types of cancer. The book tells how it was while administering to the poor in the shantytown of Rio Grande dol Sul , Brazil that he and the provincial Father Arno Reckziegel, witnessed the healing of simple people of cancer who used this recipe. Later, when he had assignments in Israel and Italy where this aloe species grows naturally he continued to see great success in the chronically ill being cured when he recommended they use this recipe. This inspired for him to spend the next 20 years in researching the science behind this aloe species and the publication of that research in this book along with his numerous first hand anecdotes of cancer healing by those using the Brazilian juice recipe. Chapters include information on how to prepare the recipe using the three ingredients of whole leaf Aloe arborescens juice, honey and a small amount of distillate (1%); how to take the preparation; questions and answers on everything from how to pick the aloe leaves, why each of the three ingredients is important in the recipe, the types of cancer that have been cured using the recipe, other diseases and health problems the recipe has shown to be beneficial in helping the human body solve; the internationalization of the recipe on five continents; anecdotal stories of some body healings; the composition of Aloe; and Aloe and Aids. There has been much publicized scientific research and literature on the synergistic benefits of the 300 phytotherapeutic biochemical and nutrient constituents of Aloe vera to aid the body's defenses to enhance the immune system and protect against diseases. However, this is the first book to reveal the little known potency

Revised 5th Edition Praise for the first edition of Everyone's Guide to Cancer Therapy: How Cancer Is Diagnosed, Treated, and Managed Day to Day: A landmark book . . . So much of what the cancer patient must know to make informed decisions. --Publishers Weekly * A completely revised and accessible guide created by more than 100 esteemed oncologists for the millions of people whose lives are affected by cancer. The Centers for Disease Control reports that more than 20 million people in the U.S. are currently diagnosed with cancer, and 1.4 million people are expected to be diagnosed in the coming year. For the millions confronting cancer's many challenges, Everyone's Guide to Cancer Therapy: How Cancer Is Diagnosed, Treated, and Managed Day to Day relies on an esteemed panel of oncology specialists--more than 100 strong, and each experts in their fields-to completely update this definitive cancer resource. Equally informative and accessible, this comprehensive book navigates cancer patients and their caregivers through diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care. Every chapter has been methodically updated to include the latest medical breakthroughs and advice concerning cancer treatment, including: * Information on recently approved targeted therapies for various cancer types * The newest strategies in cancer diagnosis and prevention * Cancer biology: translating scientific discoveries into meaningful advances for patients * Supportive care and complementary approaches
At the time of the first edition of Principles of Cancer Biotherapy in 1987, this book represented the first comprehensive textbook on biological therapy. In 1991, when the second edition was published, there was still some doubt on the part of many oncologists and cancer researchers as to the therapeutic value of these new approaches. By 2003 and the fourth edition, it was generally agreed that biopharmaceuticals were producing major opportunities for new cancer therapies. Cancer biotherapy has now truly matured into the fourth modality of cancer treatment. This fifth revised edition describes the tremendous progress that has been made in recent years using biologicals in cancer treatment. This book summarizes an evolving science and a rapidly changing medical practice in biotherapy. In this new millennium, it is now possible to envision a much more diversified system of cancer research and treatment that will afford greater opportunities for a patient’s personalized cancer treatment. This was first envisioned in the 1987 initial edition of this textbook and is now a “new” and popular approach to cancer treatment. Some forms of cancer biotherapy use the strategy of tumor stabilization and control through continued biological therapy, akin to the use of insulin in the treatment of diabetes. This textbook illustrates new methods of thinking and new strategies for control of cancer. It is always difficult to move from past dogma to future opportunity, but this fifth edition of Principles of Cancer Biotherapy illustrates why it is so important to the patients for researchers and clinicians to explore and quickly apply these new opportunities in cancer biotherapy.
This best-selling volume provides a broad overview of cancer from the basic biology and causes of human cancer through detailed discussion of the major types of cancer. A concluding chapter summarizes progress and discusses current and future directions in cancer research and treatment.
This issue concentrates on the current evidence and the collected experience of pediatric oncologists who care for cancer patients. The individual articles will provide the general pediatrician with a comprehensive primer on diagnosing and managing various types of cancers in the child with cancer. A cancer diagnosis is no longer a death sentence, so management and monitoring is very important and covered in every article.
Lung cancer is primarily a disease of well-developed affluent countries. It is by far the most common cancer in men, and is poised to overtake breast cancer as the most common cancer in women. Yet, although it is common, preventable, and sometimes curable, very little information isavailable about what happens when you get it - which is when accessible information is most needed. In a clear, non-emotive style, this revised and updated new edition provides the answers to the questions patients with lung cancers or those involved with them are likely to ask. The first section describes the causes (and includes a chapter on stopping smoking), diagnosis, and progression of thedisease. There follows a section on the curative and symptomatic treatments available for the different types of lung cancer; and the third section, new for this edition, discusses the future prospects for the disease and its treatment. Also included are a glossary, a list of further reading, andan extensive list of addresses of organizations which can provide help and advice.
Cancer is one of the world's most dreaded diseases. Yet the past two decades have seen major revolutions in cancer therapy and steadily growing hopes for a cure. This book, written in easily understood language, provides an extensive look at the way medical professionals are treating the disease today. Chapters provide: Rationale and principles integral to disease management; Biological basis for different therapies; Explanations of the protocols behind radiation, chemotherapy, drug treatments, and surgery; Logic behind therapies chosen for such different kinds of cancer as leukemia, lymphoma, retinoblastoma, hepatoblastoma, germ-cell tumors, soft-tissue and bone sarcomas, among others; Information on the most current procedures; Further reading and resources for patients and families. Chapters on clinical practice discuss the differing approaches to cancer in adults and in children. The book closes with a survey of some of the most experimental therapies and the status of the search for a cure. Helen S. L. Chan, M.D., of Toronto, Canada, is a staff hematologist/oncologist and professor at the University of Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children.

At the midpoint of the 20th century, our knowledge of cancer was based on epide- ology and pathology, and treatment consisted of surgery and radiation therapy. At mid-century, Medawar and colleagues initiated the understanding of transplantation immunology, Farber described the first use of an antifolic drug to treat leukemia, and Jacobson and coworkers described the irradiation-protection effect of spleen cells. These observations opened the door to the development of chemotherapy and tra- plantation in the treatment of cancer. Despite the rapid development of these new disciplines, progress was usually based on empiric observations and clinical trials. The rapid advances in molecular biology at the end of the 20th century mark a new era in our knowledge of cancer. Molecular immunology, molecular genetics, mole- lar pharmacology, and the Human Genome Project are in the process of providing a level of understanding of cancer undreamed of in the past. Optimism is based on the firm belief that understanding at the molecular level will lead to better and earlier di- nosis, to new forms of treatment, and, most importantly, eventually to prevention of many types of cancer.
