How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Hi Clubcar, don't be surprised.
Unfortunately you will find on your wife's 'return to full health' journey that the doctors and specialist doctors in 'modern medicine' are very indoctrinated by drug companies to only offer the chemotherapy treatments supplied by those drug companies. All the research statistics they base their recommendations on are from trials and studies sponsored by drug companies and they are very 'blinkered' about any other methods of treatment. I would suggest to you and anyone dealing with a serious health challenge that you take ownership of your health and dont just do what the doctor says. Look further than what the doctors have to offer and take a multi faceted approach to your recovery. Unfortunately there are many 'sharks' out there that can exploit the unwell for profit but Salvestrols are not in that category and what I have seen happening in friends and family using Salvestrols for recovery from cancer is very exciting.Debcnz

I must just emphasize what DebCNZ has said here.
I listened to a very interesting live lecture last evening by Prof. Dan Burke. It is quite unbelievable to here the reports he receives from people out there who have used Salvestrol. I now also understand better the reason why this is not more widely published......he cannot afford to declare the exact typs of Salvestrols used, nor can he afford to pay the huge costs of clinical trials. There is NO doubt in my mind that he has hit onto something that will help destroy cancer cells. I believe that there may need to be a multifaceted approach, and that a number of personal factors do come into play when one wants to know how success this type of treatment will be for an individual. Factors such as dosage of Salvestrol, type of cancer, stage of cancer, diet, and so on all contribute to the result that may be expected.
I am personally very excited by this development and will personally make use of the product.
Best of luck.

The trouble is, that without clinical trials, Salvestrols have no validity.
The anectodal statistics are skewed, because people taking Salvestrols and still die, don't post any follow-up. Whereas those taking them and survive, either due to Salvestrols, or simply because some cancers go into remission on their own, they will post often.
As to not affording to declare the exact types - is that for the same reason as pharmaceutical companies have patents - to protect their investment?

"without clinical trials, Salvestrols have no validity"
Respectfully, this is the type of thinking that often leads to a person's demise, when dealing with C
There are many things that have great validity, that haven't undergone clinical trial
Gerson therapy is a prime example. High Dose vitamin D is another (look to the work of Dr Joe Prendergast, Stanford Univ )
Once you understand Biochemistry, you'll understand the 'Validity' of these so called 'unproven' therapies

I meant validity from an objective point of view. There are a lot of therapies out there that are untested, and Salvestrols are currently in the same category. I don't often enter into discussions of this nature, but I can't find any independent information about Salvestrols on the internet, except information disseminated by people associated with Profs Burke and Potter. This raises a bit of a red flag for me.
Personally, my husband is taking Salvestrols - I've read everything I can find about them, and the science does makes sense to me, and I do hope that he will start to improve rather than continuing to get gradually worse.

Is Salvestrol the only therapy you're using?
If so, maybe consider adding a few additional tools in the tool box
High dose Vit D
IV Vit C
Depending on your husband's form of C, DMSO could be a valuable therapy also, it works in similar fashion to Vit C, its an oxidative therapy

Thanks for the info - we're also using Abiraterone, which we're giving another 6 weeks to see if it's going to work. It's rather expensive.
If Abiraterone fails, then we may take a look at what other therapies are out there.

Dr Dean Ornish has a very successful program for prostate C
If you google his name and the word 'cancer' it should bring up articles/ videos

I'm just starting to research this for my wife, but this is one of the best sites I've seen so far. I wish you the best.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
