Could a rocket fuel and weed killer REALLY help cancer patients?

By Lee Euler / April 14, 2013

Well, not the products themselves…

But it’s possible if you’re talking about one of their components, hydrazine sulfate—also called HZ. Let me explain. . .

The Amish Cancer Secret
How to cure just about any cancer the Amish way

    Is it possible to cure just about any cancer the Amish way? Is it true that many Amish people easily get rid of cancer in just three or four weeks? Are the Amish onto something BIG?

To find out, I interviewed Jakob and Fannie, a young Amish couple from southern Minnesota. Jakob and Fannie are just two out of roughly 800 Amish people each year who travel 2,000 miles by train to go to a little-known cancer clinic.

They told me an amazing, lifesaving tip that everyone should know. . .but almost nobody does.

Besides being ingredients in rocket fuel and weed killers, HZ compounds are also used to refine minerals… as a cleaning agent for soldering metals… and to perform blood tests…

And according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), one HZ compound has been used to treat Hodgkin’s disease, melanoma, and lung cancer since the 1960s!

Despite gaining notice from a mainstream medical organization, this inexpensive treatment has endured its share of bad press.

For example, some critics point to early studies that suggest HZ caused lung and liver carcinoma in rats. And others focus on supposed evidence that HZ produces hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in dogs and rabbits.

Joseph Gold, M.D., director of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute, has also developed HZ as an anticancer drug. Writing in the MedTruth blog, Dr. Gold exposed some of the tactics the cancer establishment has used in its smear campaign against HZ.

Dr. Gold is critical of NCI’s 2004 statement that HZ “has shown no anticancer activity in randomized clinical trials.” He says NCI failed to acknowledge the ten years of randomized clinical trials performed by Harbor-UCLA Medical Center from 1981-1990.

He further seeks to debunk claims that HZ may actually cause cancer. Dr. Gold acknowledged that HZ was shown to be carcinogenic in some mice that had ingested the drug in their drinking water since birth.

But he emphasized that there has “never been a case of human cancer reported as a result of HS therapy.”

This is something that providers of chemotherapy drugs could NEVER say about their products, which Dr. Gold points out can produce up to 26 percent of “second cancers!”

The case of HZ versus HZ

    Why are some folks convinced that HZ is a marvelous cancer treatment while others insist it should be avoided?

Well, here are a few things that the conventional cancer heavyweights would prefer you didn’t know about this remarkable compound…

  • HZ is a combination of hydrazine salt and sulfuric acid that helps clobber cachexia—the muscle and weight loss that many cancer patients experience…
  • Clinical trials conducted in the 1970s by the Petrov Research Institute of Oncology in St. Petersburg [then Leningrad], Russia found that some advanced cancer patients treated with HZ reported improved appetite, less weight loss, greater strength, or reduced pain. Some patients noticed that tumors either reduced in size or stopped growing…
  • In 1980, randomized, double-blind clinical studies at Harbor UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles showed hydrazine sulfate could increase or stabilize a cancer patient’s weight and lead to ‘statistically significant survival increase’ in patients with lung cancer.
  • Successful clinical trials conducted on hydrazine sulfate have been published in peer-reviewed medical journals worldwide…
  • Every controlled clinical trial of HZ performed according to internationally accepted standards of scientific conduct has indicated that it is both safe and effective!

In short, HZ isn’t a miracle cure for cancer, but it does appear to relieve some of the unpleasant symptoms, such as pain, weight loss and nausea, and in some patients it actually controls or reduces tumors. It can be used in conjunction with chemotherapy.

Dr. Gold pointed out that the only contrary study results came from NCI-sponsored trials of hydrazine sulfate where researchers used incompatible medications with the test drug! This sort of allegation against NCI is common. It seems the Institute has a habit of sabotaging trials of alternative remedies.

HZ is known to be a potent monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor, a type of drug used to treat depression. MAO inhibitors are known to have a potentially deadly interaction with other nervous system depressants such as alcohol, barbiturates and other tranquilizers.

Because cancer patients frequently receive tranquilizers and similar compounds the NCI researchers were warned against using HZ in combination with any of these agents—a warning which they chose to ignore, according to Dr. Gold.

He says NCI researchers did use the anti-nausea agent Compazine and benzodiazepine tranquilizers in their animal studies.

Thus it’s no surprise that the group published a series of three negative study results in the June 1994 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

In some cases the rats that received both HZ and these incompatible chemicals became comatose. What’s more, some 50-60 percent of animals that received the forbidden chemical combinations actually DIED!

In a subsequent 1994 investigation conducted by the General Accountability Office (GAO), NCI vigorously refused to acknowledge that HZ was an MAO inhibitor. This denial came despite decades of pharmacology entries describing the compound as just that.

Dr. Gold points out that despite investigations into charges of flawed study procedures—the final GAO report of the NCI studies was entitled, “Contrary to Allegation, NIH Hydrazine Sulfate Studies Were Not Flawed.”

The choice is yours…

    The negative NCI studies might have been intended to put a nail in the coffin of an inexpensive cancer treatment.

Yet today, you can still find HZ marketed in the United States as a dietary supplement. It is also widely used as an anticancer treatment in other countries.

Hydrazine sulfate is typically administered three times a day in a small 60 mg pill. The only potential side effects noted were possible dizziness, drowsiness, mild numbness of fingers and toes, nausea and mild sensations of itching.

Remember to discuss HZ and any other cancer treatment options with your medical professionals.

There are no known compatibility issues with HZ and other cancer treatments or supplements. But because it is an MAO inhibitor, you should not use HZ while taking tranquilizers or alcohol.

With proper use, HZ could be an effective way to combat some sickening side effects of one of our greatest health enemies!

Meanwhile, some manufactures would like you to believe they’ve removed a deadly toxin from their packaging. Well, not quite. If you missed this news in the last issue, you can scroll down and catch it now.

Uh, Not Really. . .

    Many consumers have taken steps to curb their use of products containing the chemical bisphenol A, or BPA. Thanks to this newsletter and other voices, folks are learning that BPA poses health risks that far outweigh its benefits. This toxic substance is commonly used in all things plastic including baby bottles, plastic food storage containers and nearly all drink containers — soda, water, juice, you name it.

But if you’ve switched to “BPA-free” products, watch out! It turns out the plastic industry has merely substituted another dangerous chemical. Keep reading and I’ll explain. . .

Hidden killer picking off Baby Boomers in their prime

    Leg cramps that wake you up out of a sound sleep.

Fingers so cold you’re embarrassed to shake hands at church.

Unsightly circles under your eyes–no matter how much sleep you get.

Bruises that appear after the slightest bump…and take WEEKS to go away.

These aren’t just minor annoyances. They’re the first signs of the hidden epidemic picking off Baby Boomers like flies. So deadly, it claims another new victim every 30 seconds. And yet–most M.D.s are completely overlooking it.

Which is why it’s absolutely critical for you to watch this special presentation right now. It will tell you everything you need to know about this sweeping threat. Including the solution so stunningly simple, it puts modern medicine to shame. Please, don’t miss it.

Long-term exposure to BPA has been linked to a number of serious health concerns, including:

  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Impaired learning and memory
  • Low sperm count
  • Obesity

BPA in your body becomes a type of fake estrogen that can lead to hormonal imbalances. For additional details, see our reports in Issue #17 and Issue #196. Canada has totally banned BPA — that should give you a hint of how serious this is.

With the discovery of the long-term health-damaging effects of BPA exposure, many manufacturers responded to public concerns by removing the chemical from their products.

But this was nothing more than a magician’s sleight of hand!

What they didn’t tell us about items sporting the “BPA free” label is that they now contain BPA’s ugly cousin bisphenol S (BPS)—a chemical that may be even MORE toxic and dangerous to your health!

Kurunthachalam Kannan, a research scientist at the New York State Department of Health in Albany, led a team investigating the prevalence of BPS in the environment.

The investigators were surprised to find that your skin appears to absorb up to 19 times more BPS than its predecessor BPA.

And here’s one reason why your likelihood of coming in contact with the chemical is extremely high:

BPS is used on most of the paper receipts and paper
currency you handle for every purchase you make!

    What does ‘most’ mean? Well Kannan’s research team tested 16 types of paper from the U.S., Japan, Korea and Vietnam.

They found a whopping 87 percent of paper currency and 52 percent of recycled paper contained BPS.

What’s more, Kannan’s group also found that 81 percent of 315 urine samples taken from men and women in the United States and seven Asian countries contained BPS. Japan had the highest average concentrations followed by the U.S.

The hidden dangers of a hormone imbalance

    Have you ever noticed that some middle aged men seem to carry a spare tire around their middle? And that some even have ‘man boobs’ where their chest muscles used to be?

Chalk it up to estrogen overload!

As men get older, they produce less testosterone, which can lead to a buildup of estrogen. If you’re a man with rising estrogen levels—be aware that it can increase your risk of experiencing prostate problems, heart trouble and other serious health concerns.

In women, excess estrogen causes fluid retention… hot flashes… night sweats… increased blood fat levels… and mood swings…

Many women also complain about dry skin and dry eyes—and even an uncomfortable vaginal dryness that can make sexual relations painful.

In 2002, government scientists abruptly ended a large study of a type of a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that made use of estrogen and progestin.

The investigators determined that this treatment, prescribed to relieve the symptoms of menopause, significantly increased the risk of breast cancer, heart disease and strokes.

Unfortunately, this news came some 50 years after countless HRT prescriptions had been doled out to unsuspecting women. Thousands of women promptly stopped hormone replace therapy — and the rate of breast cancer in the United States plunged!

In other words, this commonly prescribed medical treatment was responsible for thousands of cases of breast cancer. But this gets worse. The evidence strongly indicates the real problem was that mainstream doctors used estrogen from horses, not human estrogen. (The HRT drug was called Premarin, extracted from mares’ urine.)

HRT that uses human estrogen is called bioidentical hormone therapy. Knowledgeable authorities say this type of HRT is safe, although the medical establishment insists the use of horse estrogen had nothing to do with the link to breast cancer.

I bring it up because BPA and BPS chemically mess with the hormone levels in both men and women. The famous HRT scandal points up how even small deviations from natural human estrogen can have disastrous consequences.

Is there a BPS/cancer connection?

    The research on health effects of BPS is still in its infant stages. But what scientists do know is that BPS has a similar chemical structure to BPA. This means that, like BPA, BPS is likely to be tied to abnormal cell growth leading to cancer.

In a study published in the International Journal of Clinical Oncology, Chinese researchers compared levels of BPA in about 500 adults to the rates of the brain cancer meningioma.

They found that adults with higher levels of BPA in their urine had a greater likelihood of developing that form of cancer than did folks with lower levels. This was true even after the researchers considered other factors such as family history and whether the person had received hormone replacement therapy.

In another study, University of Cincinnati scientists exposed human breast cancer cells to low levels of BPA. The group was surprised to find that BPA encouraged the production of proteins that prevent cancer cells from being killed by chemotherapy drugs.

So according to study results, not only does BPA contribute to cancer formation—it also neutralizes one of mainstream medicines favored treatment options!

So what’s a consumer to do? Well, clearly you can’t change the BPS levels in the products themselves. But you can minimize your exposure by opting for glass beverage and food containers versus plastic.

And you can avoid microwaving foods in plastic containers to avoid leaching the chemicals into your meal.

Also, try to wash your hands after handling receipts, money and other paper products that may be coated with BPS chemicals. As mentioned before, it appears these chemicals can be absorbed through the skin.

These simple steps could decrease your exposure to this dangerous copycat chemical that may prove to be a serious health threat.
