Cancer and Cannabis Have your say...

25 September 2012, 10:50

I need to be dogmatic here regarding cancer and cannabis

It's not just because I have cancer, but because it does concern you.


Statistics say you will be affected

Because statistics say that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 woman get cancer, 1 in 2 of you who read this are obligated to voice your opinion on it and 100% should have a say as it's likely that 100% of you will know of someone that get's a disease (like cancer) that may be cured by a cannabis compound.


Not repeating myself

If you want to read what I wrote 2 days ago, locate it and read some points I made, but already since then some other valuable references have come to mind so:


South Africa is missing out on an opportunity 

Someone linked me to one of the few global pharmaceutical companies that are testing and developing cannabanoid medicines. This is a missed opportunity on South Africa's behalf to be active in finding medicines that could be patented and sold globally: http://www.gwpharm.com/

Fuel and textile industries

With fracking on the agenda, it's a good time to mention that cannabis can be used find fuel products and in our textile industry.


I can't debunk Rick Simpson's cure

Since I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, I have been formed of numerous scams. I work in IT and am more internet savy. The typical person just Google's whereas I don't. I have debunked several scams by combining them in searches with double quotation (to Google this means that the result returned must contain the entered word exactly as provided.

Some of the 'treatments' I heard of were Ozone therapy: https://www.google.com/search?q=ozone+therapy+scam&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Budwig Diet: https://www.google.com/search?q=budwig+diet+%22quackwatch%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

and Burzynski: https://www.google.com/search?q=burzynski+quackwatch&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

The fact that these scams exist are because people are skeptical of if everything in the health system (on a global scale ) is transparent. Facts are that healthcare is an industry and I have experienced first hand that money is the bigger factor as I am forced to live abroad to get treatment. There are plenty of fraudsters that exploit this lack of transparency in the form of scams online.

Rick Simpson cannabis oil

Last year I heard of RSO or Rick Simpson's cannabis oil. YouTube is rife with videos and testimony's on people that have used his oil. Unlike all the other scams that I have easily exposed, I have yet to expose his oil as a scam, even when using the same sites like http://quackwatch.org and just simply searching. It is interesting to note that Rick Simpson gives his oil for free and makes no money from it (unlike other scams).


People want to heal themselves!

Enough with this BS. I am forced to live as a refugee because I can't afford R30 000 pm for 6 months for toxic chemo that could give me further cancer. At least give those of us that want to try an alternative therapy a chance. Or we are going to accuse you (the government of a propaganda-lead conspiracy.


I trust doctors

But I am fully aware that radiotherapy and chemo are toxic for me and could give me further cancer. They could also fail in which case I am obligated to my family and wife to break stupid laws so that my wife can at least live (if anything happened to me) knowing that we did indeed try everything!


For those who have been brainwashed

Yesterday crime stats revealed on News24 stated that alcohol was to blame for the majority of murders. Yesterday I also located yet another article about breast cancer (1 in 10 woman get this) and cannabis: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2206056/Cannabis-compound-stop-breast-cancer-spreading.html


Bottom line

A law that denies every citizen from an opportunity to possibly find a cure for any disease (whether or not they can afford conventional medicine) is wrong and needs to be changed and if it is not, it needs to be contested by every person who opposed it, just like apartheid. A healthy and happy nation are more likely to pay taxes gladly!
