[Article] Chemo Kills; Food Heals

Chemo-'therapy' Kills
Real Live Wild Raw Food Heals

Get your facts straight; do your research!

Testimonial For Raw Food
(and Markus Rothkranz's Book)

"My long time friend was on his deathbed. He walked out of the hospital 7 days later after I started bringing him food and telling the hospital to stop feeding him. This "miracle" if you can call it that is because of your [Markus Rothkranz's] book. Your book gave me the specifics I needed to be fully educated. Fully aware. My friend is alive and active as ever. Cancer is not a disease, it is a direct result of our toxic environment and poor nutrition. I know this now. Knowledge is power!

"Please allow me to sing your praises just one more time. I am a window washer by trade and am around the affluent and middle class in their homes all day every day. One lady was dying of cancer. She kicked it about 4 times prior due to western medicine's nuke treatments and chemicals. Gee, whattayaknow? It returned... again and again and again. She read your book cover to cover. 3 weeks later she cancelled her chemo appointment and prepared to hang up her wigs forever. She is now cancer free and has a new lease on life. She's got a cute little spiky haircut now and jokes to me when I do her windows. You know what still makes her upset though? Still makes her buckle at the knees in anger and tears? That her husband died 3 years ago of the same ailments.

"He'd probably be alive today if they'd have known."

-- Terry Kannedy, Terry's Window Washing Laguna Niguel, CA

What the FDA Calls Effective

"Effective cancer treatment is a matter of definition. The FDA defines an "effective" drug as one which achieves a 50% or more reduction in tumor size for 28 days. In the vast majority of cases there is absolutely no correlation between shrinking tumors for 28 days and the cure of the cancer or extension of life.

"When the cancer patient hears the doctor say "effective," he or she thinks, and logically so, that effective means it cures cancer. But all it means is temporary tumor shrinkage.

"Chemotherapy usually doesn't cure cancer or extend life, and it really does not improve the quality of the life either. Doctors frequently make this claim though. There are thousands of studies that were reviewed by Dr. Moss as part of the research for his book -- and there is not one single good study documenting this claim."

- Dr. Mercola

The Raw Diet

"Many books have been written on how raw foods (i.e. uncooked foods) deal with diseases such as cancer. Many fruits and vegetables have nutrients that kill cancer cells and/or stop the spread of cancer. It is key to understand that almost every cancer diet is a modification of the raw food diet! Even the laetrile diet is basically a raw food diet, modified for foods that contain laetrile." -Cancer Tutor

Chemotherapy Manslaughter

"A British woman, Anna McKenna, was being treated with chemotherapy in 2006. Due to a mistake by her pharmacist, she was given quadruple the dose of chemotherapy chemicals -- an error that continued for four treatment sessions and ultimately killed her (as chemotherapy is known to do).

"When an investigation was launched into why she had been given a fatal overdose of chemotherapy, the prescription paperwork mysteriously disappeared. The pharmacist who made the fatal error was never identified, and no criminal charges were brought up. Even now, there are no plans to hold the pharmacist responsible for this manslaughter death of an innocent patient."

It's especially telling that in a number of surveys most chemo-therapists have said they would not take chemotherapy themselves or recommend it for their families. Chemotherapy drugs are the most toxic substances ever put deliberately into the human body. They are known poisons, they are designed poisons. The whole thing began with experiments with "mustard gas," the horrible chemical-warfare agents from World War I.

Raw Carrots

"In a review of 206 human studies, carrots consistently emerged as one of the top cancer-fighting foods. The power of carrots lies in the group of pigments called carotenoids (beta-carotene is among this group), which give them their orange color."

"A long-time and highly reliable friend of mine (in fact, my wife and I had our wedding reception at her home more than 35 years ago), told me about her friend's father, who completely cured his throat cancer with carrot juice. In other words, he ate nothing and drank nothing but carrot juice and natural water.

"Closer to home, I have seen a clear pattern in the people I have interviewed, and testimonials that I have read, that carrot juice was the core element of their raw food diet. While the day may come that some other vegetable, such as beetroots (i.e. red beets), may be shown to be even better, until that day comes it would be advisable to make sure that carrots are the core of your vegetable juice." -Cancer Tutor

Not Just A Cancer Miracle

"Up until the age of two, Jackson was developing at a completely normal pace. Then, he started losing the 20 words he knew. Next, all speech. Diagnosed as on the autistic spectrum, Jackson threw tantrums, was angry always, and his behavior deteriorated; he became unable to concentrate, and overwhelmed with frustration. Jackson's parents started with getting rid of all dairy and gluten-with immediate results. One day off dairy, Jackson was able to concentrate better. When all gluten was out of his system, his focus improved. He went through a detox, and cleared heavy metals from his system. Jackson rapidly became more alive, responsive, verbal and engaged. His parents called his progress unbelievable."

Pharmaceutical Murder: Yet To Be Prosecuted

Isn't it interesting that when victims are killed with pharmaceutical medicines, doctors and pharmacists are never held responsible for their roles in such deaths? If you run over someone with a car and kill them, you're held responsible. If you accidentally shoot your best friend in a hunting accident, you're held responsible (unless you're the U.S. Vice President, of course). If you have a swimming pool in your back yard, and a drunken neighbor drowns in your pool, you're also held responsible. But somehow, if you're a doctor or pharmacist, and you prescribe a fatal dose of toxic chemicals to a patient, you're off the hook!

Doctors and pharmacists have been getting away with murder for so long that no one even remembers what it's like to hold them responsible for their actions. Let's face it: They're in the business of dealing poisons. And doctors get paid for everything they prescribe you; they get paid to do not get paid to heal you!

Cancer Healing Raw Foods

The tip of the ice-berg in cancer-healing raw foods;
Raw pineapple (bromelain and pexoxidase),
Whole purple grapes with seeds and skins (more than a dozen),
Apricot seeds (laetrile),
Strawberries, red raspberries, black raspberries (laetrile and ellagic acid),
Blueberries (ellagic acid, anthrocyanins, OPC)

Grow It Yourself For Best Effects!

And if you grow your foods wild and eat them directly off the plant you'll get at least ten times the benefit of buying them from the store! It's cheaper, and it's healthier to grow your own plants.


Because the moment you pick something it begins to oxidize and die. If you look at all the other animals on the planet; they just go up to a bush and start munching on it; leaves and berries alike. They don't cook it, they don't steam it, they don't carefully pick out just the perfectly ripe berries. They also don't wait for it to come from the farm. It's often more than a week after it's picked that you eat it. Imagine how much was lost from the food you eat in that week! Try picking some flowers and set them somewhere and watch what happens to them in a week. That's what's happening to the life force (the enzymes) of the food you buy from a store.

Look at the most powerful animals on the planet; elephants for example. They eat greens and leaves (and some actually eat quite a bit of clay). They do not eat meats, or cooked foods. They eat raw growing plants!

If you want to be healthy, that's exactly what you need to do!

What makes you think you need to go spend all that money on processed junk when you could learn to identify what is edible in your own yard and add to it and grow things in pots? It costs so much less to heal yourself than to hurt yourself. Just like it takes so many less muscles to smile than to frown.

"Farming practices (which also indirectly affects both dairy and meat) have virtually eliminated trace minerals from our diet and have introduced many very bad things into our bodies. Our food is more acidic, fungus grows in foods it never used to grow in, etc. The nutrients in the foods of today are but a shadow of the nutrients in the same foods of 60 years ago. My father warned me, in the early 1960s, of this trend." -R. Webster Kehr

Chemothearpy Is Not Effective! People still die!

"What isn't generally known is that most chemotherapy drugs are Fluorouracil, fluorinated drug, as if we need any more what with all the antibiotics Cipro/ciprofloxacin, antidepresants Prozac, Paxil, Luvox, etc." -Anita Knight

Dr. Moss' position on chemotherapy is supported by many major students of the study of cancer treatment. Following are some examples: Dr. John Bailar is the chief of epidemiology at McGill University in Montreal and was formerly the editor of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. In 1986 the New England Journal of Medicine published an article by Dr. Bailer and Dr. Elaine Smith, a colleague from the University of Iowa. Bailer and Smith wrote: "Some 35 years of intense and growing efforts to improve the treatment of cancer have not had much overall effect on the most fundamental measure of clinical outcome - death. The effort to control cancer has failed so far to obtain its objectives.

Dr. John Cairns, a professor of microbiology at Harvard, published his view in Scientific American in 1985, "that basically the war on cancer was a failure and that chemotherapy was not getting very far with the vast majority of cancers."

Sheeple Of America

"It's amazing to me with all of the knowledge out there that people still blindly trust their doctors and would rather submit themselves to this kind of treatment. I have two people in my life right now with cancer and neither one of them will listen to me." -Anne Hecht

In reply to the above statement by Anne;

"No Anne, they will never listen to the voice of reason, just their Quack. It doesn't matter how many friends they've watched die while taking chemo, they will still follow the conventional path. This sort of mentality is simply mind boggling. The mindless sheeple in this country simply can no longer think for themselves. It's much easier to go to the local, infallible Quack who 'knows all'. It never ceases to blow my mind that everyone in this country is so brainwashed as to believe that there is 1 and only 1 possible cure on all of mother earth to treat cancer. This sort of narrow-minded thinking continues to send many to an early grave. How arrogant and ignorant we are as a people. We continue to hold onto the belief that we are superior to all other nations in every way, even as we waddle our obese asses into the next restaurant to eat our filthy (factory farmed), greasy steak and fries. Just this week I saw no less than 5 articles on this very website that spoke about cancer cures that are being used worldwide to cure cancer. I do believe oncologists are crooks and murderers only because they maintain a closed mind even while declaring the patient has just days to live. Like the bastard who replied to my wife when she asked for vitamin C drip for her dying dad who replied with a dopey look on his stupid face, "there is no evidence that it works." Yes, doc (Quack) let's just let the patient die like all the others without even trying something else. And then they go home and sleep like babies knowing that they "did all they could do." God damn every last one of them for their ignorant arrogance." - Dr. Common Sense

"The way food is processed is an abomination. Numerous substances are added to food for appearance or flavor (e.g. trans-fatty acids, food dyes, etc.); enzymes are killed by cooking; salt is virtually always added; aspartame is added to drinks to make them sweet; MSG (which is hidden in more than 30 different food additives - virtually every processed food in America has MSG in it but you rarely see it on the label) - and numerous other chemicals, are added for a variety of reasons, etc., etc." -R. Webster Kehr

[Article] The Truth About Cellulite

Skin Products

It's really nuts how much money people (especially women) put into skin treatments; lotions, special creams, moisturizers, anti-aging specialized products, and so forth. It's waste of money, in many ways.

"Unfortunately, too many people still hang on to the idea of quick and easy fixes. Beware of cellulite cream makers, medical procedures like liposuction or cosmetic treatments like body wraps. They don’t work. No cream applied to the skin can penetrate the skin and rearrange the fat cells beneath the surface." - Ace Fitness

The women with the healthiest skin on the planet have such healthy skin because they eat raw food, detox regularly and get exercise. Just look at photos of people from third-world countries (before fast-food places came along in those areas.)


"Everybody has connective tissue that separates fat cells into compartments. While men tend to have horizontal or crisscross patterns to those compartments, womens' compartments have a honeycomb appearance, giving fat a greater chance to protrude or bulge, hence the cottage-cheese effect." - Ace Fitness

Raw Foods

When you eat raw foods you're getting 1000% more nutrition than you get from packaged cooked foods. When you eat raw foods directly off the plant and not from the store, you're getting 1000% times what you get from a store-bought raw food. Imagine what all that nutrition is going to do for your skin?

(1000% is an educated guess based on the vast difference between a fresh-picked plant and a plant that has been picked months ago and processed and transported multiple times, not to mention having poisons added to it at various stages.)


One of the major causes of unhealthy skin is toxins. You hear a lot about detoxing in advertisements and see banner-ads all over the internet for one fad pill or another. It raises the important question; Why are we so badly in need of detoxing in the first place? The most obvious answer is that the food we're eating is toxic!

Beyond the toxic packaged junk most people in America are eating, there is also the fact that we're all breathing in jet fuel at every moment. 100% of all human breast milk in America contains jet fuel. We all have it in us; all of us.


"Lack of proper exercise causes poor lymphatic and blood circulation. In particular, poor lymph drainage. The lymphatic system is dependent on movement to keep the lymph flowing, meaning that the heart pumping does not keep it circulating through the body." - Vita Moor

Another cause of cellulite is lack of circulation to the area. You may notice that the areas you have cellulite are often colder than the rest of your body. I've noticed this in my experience; and it makes sense since lack of circulation can lead to a build up of toxins, thus having unhealthy fat tissues beneath the skin.

Some ways to increase circulation;

Cardiovascular exercise: get moving! Go running, do jumping-jacks, jump and leap into the air, grab a pair of three pound weights and lift your arms over your head while lifting up one leg and then do it again with the other leg.

A hot bath. I've noticed personally that my skin is more smooth and less likely to dimple right after a hot bath. This, for me, is a personal confirmation of needing more circulation.

Deep breathing. Take the time to breath fully into your chest, and fully into your belly. Then exhale slowly.


"Water encourages elimination of toxin and helps to smooth skin's tone," says an article from Glamor Edited.

So what do you do for a build up of toxins? Forget the fad pills and the fad diets! Drink more water, and give yourself a weekly enema. No kidding. If you're truly free of toxins then you won't smell when you have a bowel movement.


What does exercise have to do with having healthy skin? Good question! The more you sweat, the more toxins are released from your skin. One of the best things you can do for your skin is to sweat heavily and then take a hot bath with a little all-natural oil in the bath. (Olive Oil, or Jojoba oil are two possibilities.) After the long hot soak, have a cold shower to snap all the pores (that you just opened and cleaned) shut again.


Also, notice... Cellulite happens on fat. You don't see cellulite on top of muscle. If you're building muscle tone, then you're helping to rid yourself of cellulite. Muscles generate heat, and using them helps you sweat, which helps you rid yourself of toxins. You don't need a heavy weight set; try yoga, pilates, taking martial arts, or just good-form push-ups, squats, crunches and perhaps one single hand-set of three or five pound weights. You don't want to put on bulky muscles; you want to tone and shape your body.


Beware of anyone who tells you your cellulite or fat comes from a diet high in fat. These people are just tooting something that sounds logical because we call a certain component of food, "fat." That type of fat has nothing to do with the sort of fat you build on your body, and even less to do with building up cellulite in particular.

The biggest fat causers are poisons, such a sugar. That may sound crazy to you, but refined sugar is by no means natural, especially not in the insane quantities it's consumed today. If you don't believe me, check out massive amount of research that proves this point.

Anyone who says something like, "Oh, Avocados are not so good for you - they have too much fat," is being deceived by propaganda that food manufacturers (read: poison manufacturers) are constantly shoving down everyone's throats.


If you're eating home-grown plants, organic produce, and weeds, and eating little to no cooked foods, and packaged foods as well as doing regular enemas, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough exercise to sweat daily then you will get rid of your cellulite. No lotion is going to make it go away no matter how amazing the things they put in it. There is no miracle cure, no magic pill. The secret is being healthy.

The FDA can kiss it.

[Blog] Aches & Pains

This article has been updated and moved to - click here to check it out.

[Article] Yucca Schidigera & Joshua Tree

What's a Yucca Schidigera?

The Mojave yucca (Yucca schidigera), also known as the Spanish Dagger, is a flowering plant in the family Agavaceae. It is native to the Mojave Desert and Sonoran Desert of southeastern California, Baja California, southern Nevada and western Arizona.

Yucca Schidigera with Scarlet Globemallow at the base

What does it look like?

The Mojave yucca is a small evergreen tree growing to 5 m tall, with a dense crown of spirally arranged bayonet-like leaves on top of a conspicuous basal trunk. The bark is gray-brown, being covered with brown dead leaves near the top, becoming irregularly rough and scaly-to-ridged closer to the ground. The leaves are 30-150 cm long and 4-11 cm broad at the base, concavo-convex, thick, very rigid, and yellow-green to blue-green in color.

The flowers are white, sometimes having a purple tinge, bell-shaped, 3-5 cm long (rarely to 7.5 cm), produced in a compact, bulbous cluster 60-120 cm tall at the top of the stem. The fruit is fleshy and green, maturing into a leathery, dark brown six-celled capsule 5-11.5 cm long and 3-4 cm broad in late summer.

This yucca typically grows on rocky desert slopes and Creosote desert flats between 300-1200 m altitude, rarely up to 2500 m. They thrive in full sun and in soil with excellent drainage. It also needs no summer water. It is related to the Banana yucca (Y. baccata), which occurs in the same general area; hybrids between the two are sometimes found.

What's it good for? And what part do I use?

The Yucca Schidigera is good for intestinal inflammation. Can help stimulate hair growth.

The fibers of the leaves were used by Native Americans to make rope, sandals, and cloth. The flowers and fruit could be eaten and the black seeds were ground into a flour. The roots were used to make soap. Some reports claim that Native Americans washed their hair with yucca to fight dandruff and hair loss. Among the other maladies this yucca has been used to treat are headaches, bleeding, gonorrhea, arthritis and rheumatism. Also used as a natural deodorizer. Used in pet deodorizers.

The aerial root is the part that can be used most effectively (the part from the ground to the green crown; underneath the dead growth and outer bark). You need to get down the brown bark and slice it really thin to dry out. (If it doesn't fully dry out it rapidly gets moldy.)

The root is rich in saponin, although the green part also has some saponin as well. The flowers are perfectly edible, but not very tasty. The aerial root is the most useful part of this plant.

Note: It's important to note that Yucca Brevifolia has the same properties; more commonly known as a Joshua Tree.

What is Saponin?

Saponins are a diverse class of natural surfactants, or detergents, found in many plants, but they are most abundant in the desert plants Yucca and Quillaja. Extracts from these plants are commonly used as foaming agents for beverages such as root beer.

When consumed in the diet, several classes of phytochemical saponins exhibit a wide spectrum of biological activity as antifungal and antibacterial agents. Saponin-rich herbs contribute to the lowering blood cholesterol and inhibition of cancer cell growth. Recent studies have suggested that the low serum cholesterol levels of Masai tribes in East Africa -- who consume a diet very high in animal products, cholesterol, and saturated fat -- may be due to the consumption of saponin-rich herbs. Saponins act by binding with bile acids and cholesterol, so it is thought that these chemicals potentially have the ability to "clean" or purge these fatty compounds from the body, lowering the blood cholesterol levels.

An interesting note about Yuccas.

Yucca plants grow, flower, and then eventually die, and when they do the carcass they leave behind is very absorbent and rich. It makes the soil a much more habitable place for other plants to flourish. Great compost for your garden!

[Video Blog] The Beginning

Yesterday I got to meet Markus Rothkranz; an amazing speaker.

Raw Life Force; A Short Video by Markus

Less than a year ago I was introduced to the Raw Food lifestyle through the Buffalo Live Food Meetup Group. I attended a few potlucks and became very interested.

I have already been interested in keeping healthy for a long time. I started out by eliminating poisons from my diet; starting with refined sugars. I made a site about that called Real Poison. After eliminating refined sugar, breads, pastas, meats and dairies from my diet I lost thirty pounds in less than two months. I was so pleased with the increase in health that I kept it up.

I stopped getting sick all the time, but I still was weak and having issues putting on muscle. I was still having problems sleeping at night and having enough energy. Sure, the chronic issues like constant burping and painful constant stomach pains were gone, but there were still serious problems, so I started looking into healthy foods that I needed to add to my diet since I had gotten so far by getting rid of bad things. I created the complementary site to Real Poison called Real Food.

Adding more vegetables, salads and coconut water to my diet made another boost in energy and clarity of mind, but the sleeping issues remains. Sensitivity to sunlight beyond normalcy remains. I wear glasses and my prescription has gotten worse since I first got them when I was 18. I still don't have much of any muscle tone, although I'm not fat. But not being what people call "fat" doesn't mean I look fantastic in a swimsuit. My skin isn't terrifically unhealthy looking from a distance, but blackheads cover my nose and my thighs are quite dimpled.

And so, I've been looking for answers. What more can I do?

Quite a bit.

This is the beginning of my journey to becoming a raw foodist. I'm planning a Raw Food Potluck here at my apartment in Walnut Creek on June 6th, the full details are here.

So far, I've begun making raw food smoothies at least once a day. This morning for breakfast I put mache and other greens in the blender along with carrots, celery, broccoli as well as a kiwi, a banana and a handful of frozen blueberries.
