Fawcett Another Cancer Victim as U.S. Withholds the Cure

Farrah Fawcett - One of Charlie's Angels

We sadly say Good-Bye to Farrah who passed on today. Rest in peace.

Farrah Fawcett has been hospitalized and is in bad shape, sources close to family and friends tell exclusively. She has been battling cancer for three years and recently returned from Germany, where she had experimental stem-cell treatment. Sources told that she is critical but stable in a Los Angeles-area hospital. They also say she is unconscious and has been hospitalized for days.

Long-time love Ryan O’Neal has been by Farrah’s bedside, as has troubled son Redmond, who bolted from rehab earlier this week. Farrah, 62, was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006 and later pronounced cancer free at a press conference. It is not known whether she will survive.



There IS a cure for cancer yet thousands of people die from this horrible disease every year. The United States government has known about a cure since 1974. Richard Nixon was furious at a young generation of activists that had turned America against him and who flaunted the use of marijuana in his face.

In 1974. wanting to find damaging evidence that marijuana is harmful, researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, were funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system. SURPRISE! They discovered instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice -- lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.

The DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further cannabis/tumor research, according to Jack Herer, in his book, "
The Emperor Wears No Clothes ." In 1976 President Gerald Ford who replaced the disgraced Nixon as president, put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out -- UNSUCCESSFULLY -- to develop synthetic forms of THC that would deliver all the medical benefits without the "high." The synthetic marinol simply doesn't work.

This was not the only medical research that has produced such exciting results.

In 2000 Dr. Manuel Guzman of Complutense University in Madrid Spain re-discovered that THC destroys tumors with no negative side effects whatsoever. His team also irrigated healthy rats brains with high doses of THC for seven days and again found no negative results. Cannabinoids kill cancer cells by cutting off their blood supply but not to the healthy cells. These results have since been duplicated around the globe with many other cancers as well.

In 2005 Dr. Xia Zhang of the University of Saskatchewan found that THC actually promotes the growth of brain cells bringing new hope for head trauma and stroke patients. The same year the Scripps Institute reported that THC was a superior inhibitor of the plaque that causes Alzheimers. Unfortunately we hear little of any of these findings.

In 2008 researchers in Italy and the U.K. found that cannabinoids have germ killing activity against MRSA and kill bacteria in a different way than current antibiotics, meaning they might bypass bacterial resistance. MRSA's are becoming more and more prevalent and new treatments are desperately needed.

Even now, more medical evidence continues to mount around the world as more tests are conducted that the main chemical in marijuana appears to aid in the destruction of brain cancer cells, offering hope for future anti-cancer therapies, researchers in Spain wrote in a study released Thursday.

The authors from the Complutense University in Madrid, working with scientists from other universities, found that the active component of marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), causes cancer cells to undergo a process called autophagy -- the breakdown that occurs when the cell essentially self-digests.

The research, which appears in the April edition of US-published Journal of Clinical Investigation, demonstrates that THC and related "cannabinoids" appear to be "a new family of potential antitumoral agent." The authors wrote that the chemical may prove useful in the development of future "antitumoral agents."

The scientists conducted their research on mice, first stimulating the growth of cancer in the lab animals, then injecting them with a daily dose of THC near the site of their tumors. The researchers also analyzed the tumors of two patients in an experimental trial looking at the effects of THC on a highly aggressive form of brain tumor, and saw findings "in line with the preclinical evidence" first observed in the laboratory mice.


Dr. Dean Ornish is a world renowned authority on fighting diseases with lifestyle and dietary changes. As clinical professor at University of California, San Francisco he has undeniable credentials and brain capacity to have his words taken seriously. Corrupted genes cause cancer.

According to Dr. Dean Ornish: “when you eat healthier, manage stress and exercise more, your brain gets more blood flow and more oxygen.”

Dr. Dean Ornish recommends following to increase brain cells:

  • Chocolate

  • Tea

  • Blueberries

  • Moderate intake of Alcohol

  • Stress management

  • Canabinoids (aka Marijuana)

  1. An icon among the fairer sex for most of us guys, perhaps greater than any of the many since Marilyn. What a shame...

    A very good friend of mine right here in Sedona died of anal cancer a few years ago, after she and her husband, who built Mission Viejo in Southern California, spent over two million dollars on treatments for her because "pre-existing conditions" prevented her from getting insurance. It's a sick society we live in...while the Berny Madoffs, Bushes, Roves and all the rest of them come out of the woodwork. And still people we love die off like flies.

    There is a reason and a purpose for it all, and we came here to be part of the change. It will be a quantum leap in human evolution, to be certain, and it WILL come in our lifetimes. You're part of it, and so am I...or we wouldn't be here, doing what we do.

  2. What about Bob Marley?
