- Total Media Blackout on the Biggest Cancer Story of the Decade: Millions of Diagnoses Were Wrong… NCI Finally Comes Clean

(NaturalNews) Ever since President Nixon declared the “war on cancer” in 1971, cancer rates have been continuously rising. The incredibly expensive cancer treatments which promised to save the world don’t seem to be able to give us a solution.
Over $100 billion a year is spent on toxic chemotherapy, and even more money goes into the chemical research to find new treatments. Whenever the pharmaceutical industry comes up with a new promising drug or technique, the media jumps on the news declaring that the end of the “war on cancer” may be in sight. However, one of the biggest cancer stories was kept quiet and didn’t even make the headlines.
Decades of wrongful cancer diagnoses and treatments
In 2013, a report commissioned by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) revealed how over 1.3 million people were wrongly misdiagnosed with cancer. For years, the focus has been on early diagnosis of cancer, resulting in millions of people being falsely treated for cancer with damaging surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, to cure a disease thatthey actually did not have.
The government study, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), reported both overdiagnosis and misdiagnosis of cancer as the two major causes of this growing epidemic.
This medical negligence has led to useless, harmful treatments for millions of healthy people. However, the media kept silent about it. No apologies to patients or their families were made, and nothing has changed in the conventional practice of cancer diagnosis, prevention or treatment.
