Got cancer? Frankincense can help!
« on: August 02, 2014, 09:35:58 PM »
My mom has been reading up on essential oils lately as part of her voodoo magic bullshit she is brainwashing herself with. I passed by her computer earlier today and saw her watching this.



Because OBVIOUSLY getting rid of cancer is as simple as using ancient smelly oils.....  :anal: :wall:

EDIT: I put this in the "other religions" section because it's basically in line with spirituality and other moronic/potentially harmful beliefs

Not that it's relevant, but I just keep picturing an old lady in a wheel chair when you talk about your mom.

Even main stream medicine can't cure cancer without surgery, and even then it has to be found early enough, and can come back.  They can prolong the out come with drugs and radiation therapy, but not cure it, period. There are times when people spontaneously get cured, even without therapy, and this is what the quacks and alternative medicine doctors rely on to sell their nonsense. I had prostate cancer and have to be tested all the time to see if it comes back if it wasn't all removed. My genetic make up shows I will probably die from pancreatic cancer which my mother died from, or a stroke which I also had. I watched my dad die from strokes, and my mother from cancer, and after watching them die and my stroke, I'll choose cancer if I had the choice.  Now for the good news, even if your genetic make up precludes you to a disease, it can be avoided by healthful living up to the point of getting very old.  :eek:  Solitary

I have a friend part of an essential oils multilevel marketing scam. I really want to say something about that and a multitude of other things. But, I'll probably continue to steer conversations to other topics.

Yeah, cause cancer is a single disease and not a complex term for many mechanisms of cell mutations, disruptions in the mechanisms of cell reproduction and apoptosis. Nosiree. This is the stuff that pharma companies don't want us to know because they make money selling chemo drugs.

Right?

Yes. They can't let us know about it. There is no other possible way to make money.
