What is Cancer ?
Grace Gawler “It is important for patients and their families to understand the nature of cancer. This knowledge, we believe, underpins all future decisions that will be made to achieve health restoration – this is a part of Cancer Literacy.
Becoming cancer literate can also help you to discern when a treatment or supplement option is valid or bogus. It will help you think critically and make informed decisions about your health restoration plan.”
Cancer is a disease resulting from damage or changes to your genes and we each have about 24,000 genes.
Simplistically; cancer is unchecked cell growth that progresses toward limitless expansion – manifesting as a complex range of over 100 diseases.
This is caused by a wide range of genetic mutations. In other words; the transition from a normal cell to a malignant cancer is driven by changes to a cell’s DNA, also known as mutations.

Special Consumer Alert - Keytruda
Using Keytruda (an immunotherapy drug called pembrolizumab) can cause an incredible array of side effects.
While some of these side effects are relatively mild, many of them are quite deadly, and they may kill you much faster than cancer. ( Source – Consumer Alert – Dangerous Drugs)
The most common side effects of Keytruda include feeling tired, pain in muscles, bones or joints, decreased appetite, itching, diarrhoea, nausea, rash, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and constipation.
Because Keytruda boosts your immune system, it can also cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues in any area of your body and can affect the way they work. These problems can sometimes become serious or life-threatening and can lead to death. (Source)
