----------

Editor's note:
Bronchoalveolar carcinoma (BAC) comprises only a small percentage of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) adenocarcinomas, but its unique characteristics have enabled researchers to identify improved therapeutic strategies for BAC patients over the past few years. To gain some perspective on how these strategies have affected outcomes, Medscape spoke with Vincent A. Miller, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

Do yourself a huge favor and go to NetFlix or a video store and rent the movie called "Healing Cancer." You need to understand what is happening with this disease. The medical solutions are incredibly terrible. They are so terrible in fact, that the only disease that is defined as "CURED" as a five year survivability. No other disease is looked at that way. Ask yourself why? The answer is to make it look like modern medicine is succeeding with this disease, but it is miserably failing and for good reason. The chemotherapy helps only about 2-3% of people and according to medical research statistics, any drug that has less than a 30% success is considered no better than a placebo effect.

People who do not get treated medically statistically live longer than those that do. There are wonderful alternatives that are working and people are getting well. Don't be afraid of this disease, but do get proactive in searching the truth. Get the genetic testing, but don't fret the results and get educated, not indoctrinated.

good luck to you  (+ info)
