| Bone cancer is not one disease
but a collection of related diseases. The two most common forms of primary bone
cancer, or bone cancer that originates in the bone, are multiple myeloma and
osteosarcoma. Secondary bone cancer is a cancer that originates elsewhere in the
body. Bone cancer's is of most notable symptom is pain. Multiple myeloma, the
most common type of bone cancer, normally affects older people. It attacks the
tissues that create immune system components known as B cells which create
antibodies that fight disease. The most likely cause of this disease is chronic
over-stimulation of the B cells. These cells are activated by petroleum products
and by chemicals used in farming, leatherworking, and woodworking. Since
multiple myeloma depletes the body's supply of B cells, one of the main problems
in managing the disease is reduced resistance to infection.
People with multiple and myeloma are particularly susceptible to
infections in the sings urinary tract, lungs, and sinuses. While radiation
therapy is used to reduce localized bone pain, chemotherapy is the main
treatment option for multiple myeloma. Normally steroid drugs, like
dexamethaefersone "Decadron" and prednisone "Deitasone", are
used. When used in combination, they may help lengthen remission time but they
can also destroy bone. They also depress the immune system, that is already
depressed by the disease. Chemotherapy may be combined with immuno-therapy, in
which interferon, one of the body's own immune agents, is used. Another option
is high-dose chemotherapy with a bone-marrow transplant. click

|Primary bone tumors / cancer -can be divided into benign
tumors and cancers. Common benign bone tumors may be neoplastic, developmental,
traumatic, infectious, or inflammatory in etiology. Examples of benign bone
tumors include: enchondroma, osteoma, osteoid osteoma, osteochondroma,
osteoblastoma, giant cell tumor of bone, aneurysmal bone cyst, and fibrous
dysplasia of bone.
The malignant primary bone tumors include these osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma,
Ewing's sarcoma, fibrosarcoma, and other cancer types.
While malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) - now generally called "pleomorphic
undifferentiated sarcoma" - primary in bone is known to occur
occasionally, current paradigms often consider MFH a
"wastebasket" diagnosis, and the current trend is toward using
specialized research studies to classify these undifferentiated tumors into
other tumor classes. Multiple myeloma is a hematologic cancer, originating in
the bone marrow, which also frequently presents as one or more bone lesions.
Germ cell tumors, including teratoma, often present and originate in the midline
of the sacrum, coccyx, or maybe both. These sacrococcygeal teratomas are often
relatively amenable to treatment.
Secondary bone tumors / cancer - by definition, benign bone
tumors do not metastasize, all secondary bone tumors are metastatic lesions
which have spread from other organs, most commonly carcinomas of the breast,
lung, and prostate. Valid and reliable statistics on the incidence, prevalence,
and mortality of malignant bone tumors are difficult to find, particularly in
those over 75 years old. Because carcinomas that are widely metastatic to bone
are rarely ever curable, biopsies to determine the origin of the tumor in cases
like this are rarely done in most cases.
Doctor's Comments about Drugs
"The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once
from the disease and once from the medicine." William Osler, M.D.
"The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs
physicians superstitiously give in order to effect a cure." Charles E.
"If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea,
it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity."
O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Medicine Harvard University)
"Every drug increases and complicates the patients
condition." Robert Henderson, M.D.
"In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By
taking drug - medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further
embarrassed and harder to cure." Elmer Lee, M.D.
"The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and
medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious
effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be
abandoned." Charles Armbruster, M.D.

"Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet
alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it
appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements." - JAMA

You would not think of exposing yourself to an Atomic Bomb fallout or
excessive X-rays. But not getting enough vitamins and minerals is just as
dangerous. Cells in your body not getting their vitamins and minerals suffer
both DNA and mitochondrial damage. These cells under a microscope look like they
have been hit with radiation. This type of damage may cause you to age faster
and can lead to Cancer
and other degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and others.
