Hidden Carcinogens: Pharmaceutical Medications Cause Cancer?

By: Mike Robinson, Medicinal Cannabis Patient, Founder, Global Cannabinoid Research Center

Why are Prescription Drugs listed on California’s “Item’s known to the state to cause cancer” Proposition 65 list yet there are no warnings in pharmacies similar to those we see at gas stations? Why is Big Pharma allowed to sell carcinogens and Big Tobacco isn’t?

In our sometimes chaotic and busy lives often we’re, at times, warned about things that are known to cause cancer. In department stores some items have notices that quote laws such as California’s Proposition 65 which requires all items upon a state list to be labeled as such. Gas stations have big warning signs. Yet the only place we see this warning in the medical industry is near the X-ray department. One item just about every person will take at some point in life if not daily – prescription medications are in the spotlight and not in a good way once again. Never has a doctor warned me that one of the medications I take could cause cancer and is known to – yet they prescribe them anyway.

Since the 1986 passage of the voter approved proposition, just about everyone has seen the signs “Items known to the state of California to cause cancer” in just about every retail store imaginable as well as next to Gas pumps. When in Walgreen’s Pharmacy just days ago filling a prescription this subject was really troubling me. I was about to try some low dose aspirin since I quit Lipitor after finding out that it was the blame for a recent recurrence of a not yet specified Lymphoma – Likely Non Hodgkin’s once again. Since I had been reading up on carcinogenic effects of pharmaceuticals and had the Prop.65 watch list on my cell phone I pulled up Aspirin to see what the scientists within the states had to say – surely aspirin couldn’t be listed. The American Heart Association estimates over 60 million Americans use low dose aspirin – it’s gotta be safe. So away I went and did my due diligence searching and what did I find?https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/ – a website everyone across the globe should keep.

Wow, since 1990 the State of California has listed Aspirin as a known carcinogen – yes, that means it can and does cause cancer. Without the studies to prove this beyond any doubt, no item is ever listed due to liability alone. The state knows they can’t be sued because they know Aspirin causes cancer – “Female Reproductive Toxicity” and “Developmental Toxicity”. So, we’ve been down a path to give our infants and elders an over the counter drug known to cause cancer hidden behind a very deceiving label – especially for those with heart conditions that didn’t know they were picking between two evils.

But it got worse that day. As I waited for the one strong medicine I still take as a combo for PTSD, Seizure Control, and chronic anxiety – a medication I’ve taken since the 1995 life changing racing wreck. A benzodiazepine that’s been around for eons – Diazepam. We live in a world where stress is prevalent and anxiety runs a muck – the number of people on Benzodiazepines is estimated at over 68 million in the United States alone according to JAMA – the Journal of the American Medical Association. ‘Maybe there’s a problem with that too’ I thought to myself – so I looked. Not only did I find Diazepam by name, but shockingly this very progressive state’s scientists have declared ALL Benzo’s cause cancer. Take a look for yourself:

RxBenzo-169x300-169x300.png?resize=169%2C300&ssl=1

In the fight against Cancer that’s gone on personally for the last 2 years, the last thing I wanted to think was that one of the few medications I take would do this. Over 4 dozen pills per day have been discontinued for over 3 yrs. now – but those few I still take are indeed carcinogens. Thinking that the medication that supposedly ‘saves my life’ is no different than smoking 3 packs of cigarettes per day is sickening to say the least. The whole thought of cancer again is so absurd with Cannabis in oil and other forms used daily it seemed completely out of the question that I’d have another problem. Little did I know I was being prescribed not one, but 3 of the 4 medications I still take nowadays fell upon the list – could my doctor in California be violating the law and prescribing me cancer causing pills while I’m in remission? That seemed to be totally out of the question. A good doctor that’s very caring would never do this. But, in their busy schedules do they even know? I know I do.

High fevers came back with a vengeance about 8 months ago. A short while ago lymph nodes swelled globally. It’s been a couple months and they’re still swelling and releasing across the body. The only thing I could look at as a culprit was a statin cholesterol drug, so I thought. Since the labs have been good I saw no reason to continue. After 4 years of it so I stopped use and started researching. What I found is that many of us are consuming cancer causing items daily thinking it’s our medicine – never at all warned of this easy to access knowledge by doctors in charge of our healthcare, our future, our lives. The once popular family doctor has been replaced by a healthcare system that for the most place thrives on money, not our future but rather on their own. We no longer can go to the doctor to get the valuable information we need to survive – most of us that are ‘awake’ now research and network to gain the truth. (originally written in August, since then REMISSION declared again thanks to MCT Mix and Awesome Mike’s Medicine concentrate)

Why aren’t doctors required to inform patients of side effects? Why are patients expected to read pamphlets intended for those with medical educations to read? Why are doctors giving people drugs known to cause cancer and then profiting off of the cancer? Why are most doctors ignorant about cannabis and it’s benefits – that’s simple – if you’re well they make zero.

doc.jpg?resize=300%2C169&ssl=1

Some may question those of us that decide to choose cannabis as medicine for ourselves or our family members we care for. I believe those that have educated themselves on the Endocannabinoid System, which does not include the vast majority of doctors, are aware that pharmaceuticals dull in comparison for that reason alone. Those of us that want to go a step further and gain organic clean cannabis definitely understand that there’s no way to know what’s in a pill and with no doubt it’s one heck of a synthetic way to go. There’s absolutely nothing natural about a doctor writing a prescription for a drug. While understanding that some may need pharmaceutical medication for survival it’s also well understood over prescribing of medication is commonplace and is what caused a relapse of cancer for me – so without a doubt it’s a huge concern.

Side effects of pharmaceuticals seem bad enough from the TV Ads, but Cancer? I use cannabis to kill cancer cells without side effects that kill me. But my doctor failed to tell me about a drug that can? Yes, she did and yours may have as well so please read on. I don’t believe that ALL pharmaceuticals cause cancer – but I do believe the research that proves Rx medications were given to me, you, and our kids/parents/family/friends with full knowledge that it could cause cancer and much more – I’ve came to the conclusion that they’re all evil – just to what degree is the question. One thing for sure – after a couple decades my body is certainly addicted to items known to the state of California to cause cancer. Sadly my pharmacy doesn’t post the sign like gas stations and stores have to

rx9.gif?resize=300%2C203&ssl=1

I personally don’t watch much mainstream T.V. – for the most part because I’m busy with life. When I do make the decision to escape our current reality for the many non reality shows on television I’m amazed at the pharmaceutical ads. First comes the beautiful new natural life based on a synthetic product. The the dreaded list of side effects, and when they do present the possible adverse effects indirection is the tactic. Without a doubt I know that Prostate Cancer is caused by the use of Statin Drugs. Sadly I’m likely walking proof with that area of my body inflamed and lymph nodes swelled all about. Thanks doc, who also didn’t tell me risk for diabetes and Alzheimer’s triple with the use of those same ‘innocent’ drugs which dietary change and Coconut MCT or other healthy oils can replace for all but cardiac patients. So, let’s look at others.

Hormone replacement therapy, known as HRT, is the most controversial medications in this manner. Estrogen can promote uterine as well as breast cancer. Tens of millions of women have been directed to use HRT to ease symptoms of menopause. How many have developed cancer because of this treatment is unknown. The FDA does not report that number, only the following warning: “The FDA has asked that all labels on estrogen and estrogen-progestin replacement therapy be revised to carry a boxed warning, stating the increased risks for heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer – Jan 8, 2003″. Is this a conspiracy theory – of course not. It’s fact. Our government approves medications that they know will cause more illnesses – even death. Why? It’s profitable. I know – sickening to say the least. Targeting children and the elderly seems to be the name of the game. We all know that menopause is natural and will come no matter what to all women that live to that point in life – to give people carcinogens as a medicine to ‘ease the symptoms’ seems like more of a way to make sure there’s a future patient to me.

Nowhere does the F.D.A. require a doctor to tell a patient of this warning or any others on prescription drugs that are given. A given percentage of our population still fears cannabis but readily grasps at pill bottles without the basic knowledge that what they are taking is far more unknown than a plant with thousands of years of history as medicine. The first pill came about in the U.S. far after Cannabis grew here. In the Midwest the Cannabis plant is protected as ‘Native to the land’ and is illegal to pick along roadsides. There are no pills native to the land. But in the 1800’s the history of pills began here. Before pills Big Pharma made Cannabis Tinctures like the one show below that most have seen or have knowledge of. Big Pharma was Big Cannabis/Hemp before prohibition and are now looking to take that place again with synthetics.

lil-300x241.jpg?resize=300%2C241

Above is the work of Eli Lilly – how many people know the name but not the history? Quick lesson: Pfizer was founded in 1849 by two German immigrants who made a fortune on pain killers in the Civil War. A young cavalry commander named Colonel Eli Lilly was serving in Union Army who Pfizer was supplying. A trained pharmaceutical chemist, Lilly was an industrialist who after his military career set up a pharmaceutical business in 1876. There’s not many people in this country who don’t take medication from one of those two companies still today. Let’s look back to the very deceiving drugs that doctors don’t tell us about.

Let’s take a look at more statistics and information on prescription drugs we all should be very aware of. According to the FDA and Pub Med studies:

-Heartburn medicine omeprazole (Prilosec) causes abnormal cell growth and stomach tumors (carcinoids) in rats.

-Spironolactone (Aldactazide, Aldactone) is a blood pressure medicine that is sometimes prescribed for hormonal imbalances and facial hair growth in women. It causes tumors in rats.

-Parents of children with eczema have been worried by reports that the prescription topical skin treatments, Elidel cream and Protopic ointment, are associated with lymphoma and skin cancer. The FDA has warned against using these drugs in children under two years of age. It also states that, “The long term safety of Elidel and Protopic are unknown.”

– Rheumatoid arthritis injections Cimzia, Enbrel, Humira and Remicade. These very expensive bio-tech drugs have revolutionized the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease. Last summer the FDA announced that it was investigating an association between these medications and the development of lymphoma or other cancers.

-Another hugely controversial cancer connection has to do with cholesterol-lowering drugs. An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Jan. 3, 1996) warned over two decades ago that, “All members of the two most popular classes of lipid-lowering drugs (the fibrates and the statins) cause cancer in rodents, in some cases at levels of animal exposure close to those prescribed to humans.” Two years of fighting dual lymphoma’s only to find out that i was once again too ignorant and trusted a doctor.

-ARB’s or Blood Pressure medications primarily have also been a known culprit. A study reported a significantly increased risk of fatal cancers in patients receiving the ARB candesartan. Again, it’s people that already have serious medical issues that are being given medication that gives them more – at least most of the time. Others simply take aspirin to stop a headache and have no clue scientists had to list it almost 2 decades ago as a carcinogen yet the public is unaware.

Now let’s get informed! Why have so many changed to Cannabis?

  • 63.6% of antidepressants are associated with carcinogenicity, specifically mirtazapine, sertraline, paroxetine, citalopram and escitalopram, duloxetine and bupropion.
  • 90% of antipsychotics agents are associated with carcinogenicity. All agents were associated with carcinogenicity except clozapine.
  • 70% of benzodiazepines/hypnotics are associated with carcinogenicity, specifically clonazepam, zolpidem, zaleplon, diazepam, eszopiclone, oxazepam and midazolam.
  • 25% amphetamines/stimulants are associated with carcinogenicity, with methylphenidate specifially associated.
  • 85.7% of anti-convulsants (also used as “mood stabilizers”) are associated with carcinogenicity. The only agent not associated with carcinogenicity was lamotrigine. Specific agents associated with carcinogenicity: valproate, carbamazepine, gabapentin, pregabalin, oxcarbazepine, topromate.
  • rx4.jpg?resize=300%2C148&ssl=1
  • Take this information for what it is – information that could change your life. It definitely is changing mine as I once again take up the warrior spirit to battle what I now know was brought on by my lack of attention. We all need to pay better attention to what’s going on and make sure on our own that our health is intact. No doctor will do this that I know of – even the best are pretty consumed in what they’re doing. All patients need to be their number one caregiver if at all possible. It’s on us to learn the most we can and apply that knowledge.

Cannabis Touches My Soul Deeply as it Beats Cancer Again

Having Severe Epilepsy control my life was brutal - for 18 years after a very brutal wreck on the Winston West/Nascar SW Tour I seized just about everywhere I went. It controlled my life even more than the nearly 50 pills a day I used to take for seizures. Today? I'll take 3 pills total for that. Before Cannabis it was 62 pills a day total prescribed for all of the different health issues I had, now it's 6. 91% Reduction over the past 5.5 years. Incredible simply isn't the word for how much this plant touches my soul and heals my body. Having Cancer again? I won't lie - it's scary. This time it's Multiple Myeloma - a blood cancer that's much like Leukemia, but rests in the marrow. I've entered a study for stem cell transplants in Kern County, Ca. (just in case).

Running a very extensive compassion program for years showed me how extracts and the actual plant itself will quickly change the lives of people suffering from so many ailments it's impossible to even list them all. One month I tracked over 450 patients that were treated with 100% Free compassion oils. Those days have disappeared as the recreational law in California prohibited the gifting of cannabis oil - trading the lives of the sick off for profits for the rich and taxes for the state. That does not touch my soul positively at all - it makes me question the values of people that vote without reading exactly what they're voting for. It makes me wonder what type of world we actually live in and what will be left for kids like our precious Genevieve when we're gone.

Will we move forward in the Cannabis Industry like all others? Will we see it transform from something new like what Henry Ford brought to the world in Automobiles or will we see this fast transformation into used car salesman personalities coming from those that were once part of a subculture of pure love. After all - the hippies started this movement. People like my biological mom who was deep in the streets back in the 60's talking it up about how Marijuana is medicine. She's gone and so are most of the values her people brought to the movement - now it's up to all of us.

Will we let the plant touch peoples souls or will we be the generation that turns the love of the plant into the love of money and forget the sick people? So far it doesn't look too good for the many that can't afford products so many are mass producing and NOT giving away - remember when you give the gift of life it will likely come back your way. Karma is something very real - build and create your own by touching someone's soul today.

Give it up - it's not that hard to give, it's actually a gift to yourself!

US Govt: Cannabinoids, THC & CBD Promote The Re-Emergence Of Apoptosis (the signal for a cell to die)

By: Mike Robinson
Medicinal Cannabis Patient and Director of Communications,
The American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine

(Reprinted with permission by Mike Robinson as we here at JADEO just loved it!)

Cancer patients around the globe are looking to the internet for the most up to date way to treat life altering illnesses that will effect every single one of us on the planet in one way or another. As we read of GW Pharmaceuticals 'Epidolex' being approved by the FDA to treat seizures (CBD) - there's so much more to talk about than it's efficacy, side effects, and contraindications. We all know, or should, that there are known contraindications to every pharmaceutical and Epidolex has some downright scary ones that can and have caused 'status epilepticus' at an alarming rate (over 10% of trial patients). So be it, it's made it's way through the channels and will now become an item on pharmacy shelves. 

But what about Cancer? We've seen the posts about US Patent 6630507 which enraged the world and lit a fire under the movement for legalization of the plant globally, but what about United States Patent Application # 20130059018   Assignee: GW Pharma? 

A government that states there's no medicinal value in a plant doling out a patent on it to themselves and then to pharmaceutical companies abroad seems ludicrous but it's the reality we live in. Control of all by a few thousand elected officials over hundreds of millions is the way of the world nowadays in nations across the globe. God Bless America I guess would be applicable as we need a blessing after doing this to our own citizens!

Why haven't we heard more about this in the media and why are doctors yearning for information when it already exists? 

Probably because it was withheld from them while they attended medical school. As much as people in general would like to blame doctors for lack of knowledge in the cannabinoid medicine field, the problem is not with the physician or specialist - it's with a very broken system that hoped the Endocannabinoid System discovery over 2 decades ago by Professor Raphael Mechoulam of Israel would stay hidden away forever - so why teach it in colleges? In my current position I see the continual desire for clinicians and specialists around the world to learn more. The best teacher? A very well informed patient. The physician isn't fighting for their life so they're not spending 24/7 researching and playing around with different concoction or 'stews ala cannabinoids' as I call them! So it only makes sense that a patient that has a ton of time can learn much more about treating themselves (and others) as we're in this to stay alive vs. add it to our medical practice or be part of a sub specialty.

Let's take a look at what's been around for 5 years now - proof positive that Cannabis indeed will kill cancer cells and starve out tumors creating an impossibility for them to continue growing. Of course I could use scientific terms but those are a bit difficult for most to understand.

Federal Government Reports Marijuana Effective in Combatting Certain Cancers Reports ADSI (Global News wire Press Release 2013): LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The following is a statement by Advocates for the Disabled and Seriously Ill:

In a recent report, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the Federal government's National Institutes of Health (NIH), stated that marijuana "inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell lines." The same report showed marijuana slows or stops the growth of certain lung cancer cells and suggested that marijuana may provide "risk reduction and treatment of colorectal cancer."

Referring to the NCI report, Patient Rights attorney Matthew Pappas said, "The Federal government's continuing attack on people prescribed medical cannabis by their doctors is hypocritical considering the benefits reported by its own National Cancer Institute." Pappas represents patients in defending their right to reasonably obtain medical marijuana. The patients contend the Federal government and various municipalities are trying to prevent them from obtaining cannabis for medical purposes in direct contravention of state laws. "Cities that ban dispensaries are denying patients the ability to obtain a medicine the Federal government's National Institutes of Health says fights cancer and they're doing it with the Obama Administration's help." Recently, the City of Los Angeles repealed its ban of medical marijuana collectives after Bill Rosendahl, a member of its city council diagnosed with cancer and prescribed medical marijuana said to fellow council members about the ban, "You want to kill me? You want to throw me under the bus?"

The NCI report also examined whether patients who smoke marijuana rather than ingesting it orally are exposed to a higher risk of lung and certain digestive system cancers. According to the government, 19 studies "failed to demonstrate statistically significant associations between marijuana inhalation and lung cancer." The report also identified a separate study of 611 lung cancer patients that showed marijuana was "not associated with an increased risk of lung cancer or other upper aerodigestive tract cancers and found no positive associations with any cancer type." In the area of prostate cancer, the NCI report was inconclusive and suggested further research was necessary. In its report, the National Cancer Institute also identified a "study of intratumoral injection of delta-9-THC in patients with recurrent glioblastoma" that showed tumor reduction in the test participants.

Despite the Federal government sanctioned and authorized NCI report, Pappas said Congress and the Obama Administration have continued to thwart marijuana research. In an announced effort to displace state medical marijuana laws, the Office of National Drug Control Policy described "medical" marijuana as a "myth" fueling "troubling misconceptions" in documents found on its website. The Federal government appears to be focused on creating more chemical drugs, many of which are the subject of various attorney television commercials seeking out those adversely impacted by those drugs. Pappas said both the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Office of National Drug Control Policy continue to assert marijuana lacks any medicinal value despite the research showing cannabis reduces certain cancer risks and inhibits the growth of tumor cells. He also commented that the Federal government's anti-marijuana position contributes to and encourages prejudice and public misconception about the legitimate use of medical cannabis as treatment for seriously ill patients.

In addition to anti-cancer properties, separate research reported marijuana appears to have "profound nerve-protective and brain-enhancing properties that could potentially treat many neurodegenerative disorders." In its report, the National Cancer Institute stated cannabis effectively treats insomnia and referenced a placebo-controlled study in cancer patients showing increased quality of sleep and relaxation in those treated with tetrahydrocannabinol, an active component in marijuana.

Responding to a White House statement that only a small percentage of patients prescribed medical cannabis under state laws use it to treat cancer, Pappas said "marijuana isn't just for cancer or AIDS patients – it can also treat, for example, sleeplessness." Although generally not a life threatening condition, Pappas referred to insomnia as a health issue regularly treated with prescription drugs zolpidem (brand name Ambien) and eszopiclone (brand name Lunesta). According to their manufacturers' websites, zolpidem and eszopiclone have been shown to cause severe side effects including aggressiveness, hallucinations, confusion, or suicidal thoughts. Pappas noted that, unlike those drugs, studies on insomnia similar to those reported by the National Cancer Institute show medical marijuana effectively treats insomnia at a far lower cost and with fewer side effects. Marijuana has also been prescribed for glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and a variety of other physical and mental conditions.

Addressing the White House website statement that medical marijuana should remain criminally illegal under federal law, Pappas said that "with every drug, the doctor must consider the benefits versus any possible side effects. In its 3000-plus year history of medicinal use, there has never been a known, confirmed death caused by overdose of marijuana. To suggest that prescription drugs known to have severe negative side effects are alright and that marijuana can only be used for cancer or AIDS is nonsensical. It demonstrates how the Federal government's decision to usurp state sovereignty is harming people because burdening citizens with federal criminal records based on medical marijuana provided for under state law is simply wrong. To continue outlawing the use of a drug shown to have life-saving, anti-cancer benefits that has been used safely as a medication for thousands of years is irresponsible."

When we review this information it's beyond disturbing, but to stay disturbed would be a waste of time we literally do not have - especially if we're fighting cancer which half of us are or have already. Those numbers will only increase as the environment of harm we all live within changes by the day and not for the better. As plastic fills our oceans that are already flooded with waste from Nuclear Power and more we all know our time on this planet is limited. The type of crimes against humanity that are being perpetuated by the day across the globe by nations starving their citizens from a plant that heals are preposterous - but they are the reality. Lawsuits seem fruitless, even the WHO's demands regarding CBD are going unanswered in regards to the wish for 100% removal from all nations controlled substances list. Baby steps need to be leaps and bounds as we are destructing the most valuable resource known to mankind - people.

Hidden Carcinogens: Pharmaceutical Medications Cause Cancer?

By: Mike Robinson, Medicinal Cannabis Patient, Founder, Global Cannabinoid Research Center

Why are Prescription Drugs listed on California’s “Item’s known to the state to cause cancer” Proposition 65 list yet there are no warnings in pharmacies similar to those we see at gas stations? Why is Big Pharma allowed to sell carcinogens and Big Tobacco isn’t?

In our sometimes chaotic and busy lives often we’re, at times, warned about things that are known to cause cancer. In department stores some items have notices that quote laws such as California’s Proposition 65 which requires all items upon a state list to be labeled as such. Gas stations have big warning signs. Yet the only place we see this warning in the medical industry is near the X-ray department. One item just about every person will take at some point in life if not daily – prescription medications are in the spotlight and not in a good way once again. Never has a doctor warned me that one of the medications I take could cause cancer and is known to – yet they prescribe them anyway.

Since the 1986 passage of the voter approved proposition, just about everyone has seen the signs “Items known to the state of California to cause cancer” in just about every retail store imaginable as well as next to Gas pumps. When in Walgreen’s Pharmacy just days ago filling a prescription this subject was really troubling me. I was about to try some low dose aspirin since I quit Lipitor after finding out that it was the blame for a recent recurrence of a not yet specified Lymphoma – Likely Non Hodgkin’s once again. Since I had been reading up on carcinogenic effects of pharmaceuticals and had the Prop.65 watch list on my cell phone I pulled up Aspirin to see what the scientists within the states had to say – surely aspirin couldn’t be listed. The American Heart Association estimates over 60 million Americans use low dose aspirin – it’s gotta be safe. So away I went and did my due diligence searching and what did I find?https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/ – a website everyone across the globe should keep.

RxAspirin-169x300-169x300.png?resize=169%2C300&ssl=1

Wow, since 1990 the State of California has listed Aspirin as a known carcinogen – yes, that means it can and does cause cancer. Without the studies to prove this beyond any doubt, no item is ever listed due to liability alone. The state knows they can’t be sued because they know Aspirin causes cancer – “Female Reproductive Toxicity” and “Developmental Toxicity”. So, we’ve been down a path to give our infants and elders an over the counter drug known to cause cancer hidden behind a very deceiving label – especially for those with heart conditions that didn’t know they were picking between two evils.

But it got worse that day. As I waited for the one strong medicine I still take as a combo for PTSD, Seizure Control, and chronic anxiety – a medication I’ve taken since the 1995 life changing racing wreck. A benzodiazepine that’s been around for eons – Diazepam. We live in a world where stress is prevalent and anxiety runs a muck – the number of people on Benzodiazepines is estimated at over 68 million in the United States alone according to JAMA – the Journal of the American Medical Association. ‘Maybe there’s a problem with that too’ I thought to myself – so I looked. Not only did I find Diazepam by name, but shockingly this very progressive state’s scientists have declared ALL Benzo’s cause cancer. Take a look for yourself:

RxBenzo-169x300-169x300.png?resize=169%2C300&ssl=1

In the fight against Cancer that’s gone on personally for the last 2 years, the last thing I wanted to think was that one of the few medications I take would do this. Over 4 dozen pills per day have been discontinued for over 3 yrs. now – but those few I still take are indeed carcinogens. Thinking that the medication that supposedly ‘saves my life’ is no different than smoking 3 packs of cigarettes per day is sickening to say the least. The whole thought of cancer again is so absurd with Cannabis in oil and other forms used daily it seemed completely out of the question that I’d have another problem. Little did I know I was being prescribed not one, but 3 of the 4 medications I still take nowadays fell upon the list – could my doctor in California be violating the law and prescribing me cancer causing pills while I’m in remission? That seemed to be totally out of the question. A good doctor that’s very caring would never do this. But, in their busy schedules do they even know? I know I do.

High fevers came back with a vengeance about 8 months ago. A short while ago lymph nodes swelled globally. It’s been a couple months and they’re still swelling and releasing across the body. The only thing I could look at as a culprit was a statin cholesterol drug, so I thought. Since the labs have been good I saw no reason to continue. After 4 years of it so I stopped use and started researching. What I found is that many of us are consuming cancer causing items daily thinking it’s our medicine – never at all warned of this easy to access knowledge by doctors in charge of our healthcare, our future, our lives. The once popular family doctor has been replaced by a healthcare system that for the most place thrives on money, not our future but rather on their own. We no longer can go to the doctor to get the valuable information we need to survive – most of us that are ‘awake’ now research and network to gain the truth. (originally written in August, since then REMISSION declared again thanks to MCT Mix and Awesome Mike’s Medicine concentrate)

Why aren’t doctors required to inform patients of side effects? Why are patients expected to read pamphlets intended for those with medical educations to read? Why are doctors giving people drugs known to cause cancer and then profiting off of the cancer? Why are most doctors ignorant about cannabis and it’s benefits – that’s simple – if you’re well they make zero.

doc.jpg?resize=300%2C169&ssl=1

Some may question those of us that decide to choose cannabis as medicine for ourselves or our family members we care for. I believe those that have educated themselves on the Endocannabinoid System, which does not include the vast majority of doctors, are aware that pharmaceuticals dull in comparison for that reason alone. Those of us that want to go a step further and gain organic clean cannabis definitely understand that there’s no way to know what’s in a pill and with no doubt it’s one heck of a synthetic way to go. There’s absolutely nothing natural about a doctor writing a prescription for a drug. While understanding that some may need pharmaceutical medication for survival it’s also well understood over prescribing of medication is commonplace and is what caused a relapse of cancer for me – so without a doubt it’s a huge concern.

Side effects of pharmaceuticals seem bad enough from the TV Ads, but Cancer? I use cannabis to kill cancer cells without side effects that kill me. But my doctor failed to tell me about a drug that can? Yes, she did and yours may have as well so please read on. I don’t believe that ALL pharmaceuticals cause cancer – but I do believe the research that proves Rx medications were given to me, you, and our kids/parents/family/friends with full knowledge that it could cause cancer and much more – I’ve came to the conclusion that they’re all evil – just to what degree is the question. One thing for sure – after a couple decades my body is certainly addicted to items known to the state of California to cause cancer. Sadly my pharmacy doesn’t post the sign like gas stations and stores have to

rx9.gif?resize=300%2C203&ssl=1

I personally don’t watch much mainstream T.V. – for the most part because I’m busy with life. When I do make the decision to escape our current reality for the many non reality shows on television I’m amazed at the pharmaceutical ads. First comes the beautiful new natural life based on a synthetic product. The the dreaded list of side effects, and when they do present the possible adverse effects indirection is the tactic. Without a doubt I know that Prostate Cancer is caused by the use of Statin Drugs. Sadly I’m likely walking proof with that area of my body inflamed and lymph nodes swelled all about. Thanks doc, who also didn’t tell me risk for diabetes and Alzheimer’s triple with the use of those same ‘innocent’ drugs which dietary change and Coconut MCT or other healthy oils can replace for all but cardiac patients. So, let’s look at others.

Hormone replacement therapy, known as HRT, is the most controversial medications in this manner. Estrogen can promote uterine as well as breast cancer. Tens of millions of women have been directed to use HRT to ease symptoms of menopause. How many have developed cancer because of this treatment is unknown. The FDA does not report that number, only the following warning: “The FDA has asked that all labels on estrogen and estrogen-progestin replacement therapy be revised to carry a boxed warning, stating the increased risks for heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer – Jan 8, 2003″. Is this a conspiracy theory – of course not. It’s fact. Our government approves medications that they know will cause more illnesses – even death. Why? It’s profitable. I know – sickening to say the least. Targeting children and the elderly seems to be the name of the game. We all know that menopause is natural and will come no matter what to all women that live to that point in life – to give people carcinogens as a medicine to ‘ease the symptoms’ seems like more of a way to make sure there’s a future patient to me.

Nowhere does the F.D.A. require a doctor to tell a patient of this warning or any others on prescription drugs that are given. A given percentage of our population still fears cannabis but readily grasps at pill bottles without the basic knowledge that what they are taking is far more unknown than a plant with thousands of years of history as medicine. The first pill came about in the U.S. far after Cannabis grew here. In the Midwest the Cannabis plant is protected as ‘Native to the land’ and is illegal to pick along roadsides. There are no pills native to the land. But in the 1800’s the history of pills began here. Before pills Big Pharma made Cannabis Tinctures like the one show below that most have seen or have knowledge of. Big Pharma was Big Cannabis/Hemp before prohibition and are now looking to take that place again with synthetics.

Above is the work of Eli Lilly – how many people know the name but not the history? Quick lesson: Pfizer was founded in 1849 by two German immigrants who made a fortune on pain killers in the Civil War. A young cavalry commander named Colonel Eli Lilly was serving in Union Army who Pfizer was supplying. A trained pharmaceutical chemist, Lilly was an industrialist who after his military career set up a pharmaceutical business in 1876. There’s not many people in this country who don’t take medication from one of those two companies still today. Let’s look back to the very deceiving drugs that doctors don’t tell us about.

Let’s take a look at more statistics and information on prescription drugs we all should be very aware of. According to the FDA and Pub Med studies:

-Heartburn medicine omeprazole (Prilosec) causes abnormal cell growth and stomach tumors (carcinoids) in rats.

-Spironolactone (Aldactazide, Aldactone) is a blood pressure medicine that is sometimes prescribed for hormonal imbalances and facial hair growth in women. It causes tumors in rats.

-Parents of children with eczema have been worried by reports that the prescription topical skin treatments, Elidel cream and Protopic ointment, are associated with lymphoma and skin cancer. The FDA has warned against using these drugs in children under two years of age. It also states that, “The long term safety of Elidel and Protopic are unknown.”

– Rheumatoid arthritis injections Cimzia, Enbrel, Humira and Remicade. These very expensive bio-tech drugs have revolutionized the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease. Last summer the FDA announced that it was investigating an association between these medications and the development of lymphoma or other cancers.

-Another hugely controversial cancer connection has to do with cholesterol-lowering drugs. An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Jan. 3, 1996) warned over two decades ago that, “All members of the two most popular classes of lipid-lowering drugs (the fibrates and the statins) cause cancer in rodents, in some cases at levels of animal exposure close to those prescribed to humans.” Two years of fighting dual lymphoma’s only to find out that i was once again too ignorant and trusted a doctor.

-ARB’s or Blood Pressure medications primarily have also been a known culprit. A study reported a significantly increased risk of fatal cancers in patients receiving the ARB candesartan. Again, it’s people that already have serious medical issues that are being given medication that gives them more – at least most of the time. Others simply take aspirin to stop a headache and have no clue scientists had to list it almost 2 decades ago as a carcinogen yet the public is unaware.

Now let’s get informed! Why have so many changed to Cannabis?

  • 63.6% of antidepressants are associated with carcinogenicity, specifically mirtazapine, sertraline, paroxetine, citalopram and escitalopram, duloxetine and bupropion.
  • 90% of antipsychotics agents are associated with carcinogenicity. All agents were associated with carcinogenicity except clozapine.
  • 70% of benzodiazepines/hypnotics are associated with carcinogenicity, specifically clonazepam, zolpidem, zaleplon, diazepam, eszopiclone, oxazepam and midazolam.
  • 25% amphetamines/stimulants are associated with carcinogenicity, with methylphenidate specifially associated.
  • 85.7% of anti-convulsants (also used as “mood stabilizers”) are associated with carcinogenicity. The only agent not associated with carcinogenicity was lamotrigine. Specific agents associated with carcinogenicity: valproate, carbamazepine, gabapentin, pregabalin, oxcarbazepine, topromate.
  • rx4.jpg?resize=300%2C148&ssl=1
  • Take this information for what it is – information that could change your life. It definitely is changing mine as I once again take up the warrior spirit to battle what I now know was brought on by my lack of attention. We all need to pay better attention to what’s going on and make sure on our own that our health is intact. No doctor will do this that I know of – even the best are pretty consumed in what they’re doing. All patients need to be their number one caregiver if at all possible. It’s on us to learn the most we can and apply that knowledge.

Cannabis Touches My Soul Deeply as it Beats Cancer Again

Having Severe Epilepsy control my life was brutal - for 18 years after a very brutal wreck on the Winston West/Nascar SW Tour I seized just about everywhere I went. It controlled my life even more than the nearly 50 pills a day I used to take for seizures. Today? I'll take 3 pills total for that. Before Cannabis it was 62 pills a day total prescribed for all of the different health issues I had, now it's 6. 91% Reduction over the past 5.5 years. Incredible simply isn't the word for how much this plant touches my soul and heals my body. Having Cancer again? I won't lie - it's scary. This time it's Multiple Myeloma - a blood cancer that's much like Leukemia, but rests in the marrow. I've entered a study for stem cell transplants in Kern County, Ca. (just in case).

Running a very extensive compassion program for years showed me how extracts and the actual plant itself will quickly change the lives of people suffering from so many ailments it's impossible to even list them all. One month I tracked over 450 patients that were treated with 100% Free compassion oils. Those days have disappeared as the recreational law in California prohibited the gifting of cannabis oil - trading the lives of the sick off for profits for the rich and taxes for the state. That does not touch my soul positively at all - it makes me question the values of people that vote without reading exactly what they're voting for. It makes me wonder what type of world we actually live in and what will be left for kids like our precious Genevieve when we're gone.

Will we move forward in the Cannabis Industry like all others? Will we see it transform from something new like what Henry Ford brought to the world in Automobiles or will we see this fast transformation into used car salesman personalities coming from those that were once part of a subculture of pure love. After all - the hippies started this movement. People like my biological mom who was deep in the streets back in the 60's talking it up about how Marijuana is medicine. She's gone and so are most of the values her people brought to the movement - now it's up to all of us.

Will we let the plant touch peoples souls or will we be the generation that turns the love of the plant into the love of money and forget the sick people? So far it doesn't look too good for the many that can't afford products so many are mass producing and NOT giving away - remember when you give the gift of life it will likely come back your way. Karma is something very real - build and create your own by touching someone's soul today.

Give it up - it's not that hard to give, it's actually a gift to yourself!

US Govt: Cannabinoids, THC & CBD Promote The Re-Emergence Of Apoptosis (the signal for a cell to die)

By: Mike Robinson
Medicinal Cannabis Patient and Director of Communications,
The American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine

(Reprinted with permission by Mike Robinson as we here at JADEO just loved it!)

Cancer patients around the globe are looking to the internet for the most up to date way to treat life altering illnesses that will effect every single one of us on the planet in one way or another. As we read of GW Pharmaceuticals 'Epidolex' being approved by the FDA to treat seizures (CBD) - there's so much more to talk about than it's efficacy, side effects, and contraindications. We all know, or should, that there are known contraindications to every pharmaceutical and Epidolex has some downright scary ones that can and have caused 'status epilepticus' at an alarming rate (over 10% of trial patients). So be it, it's made it's way through the channels and will now become an item on pharmacy shelves. 

But what about Cancer? We've seen the posts about US Patent 6630507 which enraged the world and lit a fire under the movement for legalization of the plant globally, but what about United States Patent Application # 20130059018   Assignee: GW Pharma? 

A government that states there's no medicinal value in a plant doling out a patent on it to themselves and then to pharmaceutical companies abroad seems ludicrous but it's the reality we live in. Control of all by a few thousand elected officials over hundreds of millions is the way of the world nowadays in nations across the globe. God Bless America I guess would be applicable as we need a blessing after doing this to our own citizens!

Why haven't we heard more about this in the media and why are doctors yearning for information when it already exists? 

Probably because it was withheld from them while they attended medical school. As much as people in general would like to blame doctors for lack of knowledge in the cannabinoid medicine field, the problem is not with the physician or specialist - it's with a very broken system that hoped the Endocannabinoid System discovery over 2 decades ago by Professor Raphael Mechoulam of Israel would stay hidden away forever - so why teach it in colleges? In my current position I see the continual desire for clinicians and specialists around the world to learn more. The best teacher? A very well informed patient. The physician isn't fighting for their life so they're not spending 24/7 researching and playing around with different concoction or 'stews ala cannabinoids' as I call them! So it only makes sense that a patient that has a ton of time can learn much more about treating themselves (and others) as we're in this to stay alive vs. add it to our medical practice or be part of a sub specialty.

Let's take a look at what's been around for 5 years now - proof positive that Cannabis indeed will kill cancer cells and starve out tumors creating an impossibility for them to continue growing. Of course I could use scientific terms but those are a bit difficult for most to understand.

Federal Government Reports Marijuana Effective in Combatting Certain Cancers Reports ADSI (Global News wire Press Release 2013): LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The following is a statement by Advocates for the Disabled and Seriously Ill:

In a recent report, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the Federal government's National Institutes of Health (NIH), stated that marijuana "inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell lines." The same report showed marijuana slows or stops the growth of certain lung cancer cells and suggested that marijuana may provide "risk reduction and treatment of colorectal cancer."

Referring to the NCI report, Patient Rights attorney Matthew Pappas said, "The Federal government's continuing attack on people prescribed medical cannabis by their doctors is hypocritical considering the benefits reported by its own National Cancer Institute." Pappas represents patients in defending their right to reasonably obtain medical marijuana. The patients contend the Federal government and various municipalities are trying to prevent them from obtaining cannabis for medical purposes in direct contravention of state laws. "Cities that ban dispensaries are denying patients the ability to obtain a medicine the Federal government's National Institutes of Health says fights cancer and they're doing it with the Obama Administration's help." Recently, the City of Los Angeles repealed its ban of medical marijuana collectives after Bill Rosendahl, a member of its city council diagnosed with cancer and prescribed medical marijuana said to fellow council members about the ban, "You want to kill me? You want to throw me under the bus?"

The NCI report also examined whether patients who smoke marijuana rather than ingesting it orally are exposed to a higher risk of lung and certain digestive system cancers. According to the government, 19 studies "failed to demonstrate statistically significant associations between marijuana inhalation and lung cancer." The report also identified a separate study of 611 lung cancer patients that showed marijuana was "not associated with an increased risk of lung cancer or other upper aerodigestive tract cancers and found no positive associations with any cancer type." In the area of prostate cancer, the NCI report was inconclusive and suggested further research was necessary. In its report, the National Cancer Institute also identified a "study of intratumoral injection of delta-9-THC in patients with recurrent glioblastoma" that showed tumor reduction in the test participants.

Despite the Federal government sanctioned and authorized NCI report, Pappas said Congress and the Obama Administration have continued to thwart marijuana research. In an announced effort to displace state medical marijuana laws, the Office of National Drug Control Policy described "medical" marijuana as a "myth" fueling "troubling misconceptions" in documents found on its website. The Federal government appears to be focused on creating more chemical drugs, many of which are the subject of various attorney television commercials seeking out those adversely impacted by those drugs. Pappas said both the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Office of National Drug Control Policy continue to assert marijuana lacks any medicinal value despite the research showing cannabis reduces certain cancer risks and inhibits the growth of tumor cells. He also commented that the Federal government's anti-marijuana position contributes to and encourages prejudice and public misconception about the legitimate use of medical cannabis as treatment for seriously ill patients.

In addition to anti-cancer properties, separate research reported marijuana appears to have "profound nerve-protective and brain-enhancing properties that could potentially treat many neurodegenerative disorders." In its report, the National Cancer Institute stated cannabis effectively treats insomnia and referenced a placebo-controlled study in cancer patients showing increased quality of sleep and relaxation in those treated with tetrahydrocannabinol, an active component in marijuana.

Responding to a White House statement that only a small percentage of patients prescribed medical cannabis under state laws use it to treat cancer, Pappas said "marijuana isn't just for cancer or AIDS patients – it can also treat, for example, sleeplessness." Although generally not a life threatening condition, Pappas referred to insomnia as a health issue regularly treated with prescription drugs zolpidem (brand name Ambien) and eszopiclone (brand name Lunesta). According to their manufacturers' websites, zolpidem and eszopiclone have been shown to cause severe side effects including aggressiveness, hallucinations, confusion, or suicidal thoughts. Pappas noted that, unlike those drugs, studies on insomnia similar to those reported by the National Cancer Institute show medical marijuana effectively treats insomnia at a far lower cost and with fewer side effects. Marijuana has also been prescribed for glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and a variety of other physical and mental conditions.

Addressing the White House website statement that medical marijuana should remain criminally illegal under federal law, Pappas said that "with every drug, the doctor must consider the benefits versus any possible side effects. In its 3000-plus year history of medicinal use, there has never been a known, confirmed death caused by overdose of marijuana. To suggest that prescription drugs known to have severe negative side effects are alright and that marijuana can only be used for cancer or AIDS is nonsensical. It demonstrates how the Federal government's decision to usurp state sovereignty is harming people because burdening citizens with federal criminal records based on medical marijuana provided for under state law is simply wrong. To continue outlawing the use of a drug shown to have life-saving, anti-cancer benefits that has been used safely as a medication for thousands of years is irresponsible."

When we review this information it's beyond disturbing, but to stay disturbed would be a waste of time we literally do not have - especially if we're fighting cancer which half of us are or have already. Those numbers will only increase as the environment of harm we all live within changes by the day and not for the better. As plastic fills our oceans that are already flooded with waste from Nuclear Power and more we all know our time on this planet is limited. The type of crimes against humanity that are being perpetuated by the day across the globe by nations starving their citizens from a plant that heals are preposterous - but they are the reality. Lawsuits seem fruitless, even the WHO's demands regarding CBD are going unanswered in regards to the wish for 100% removal from all nations controlled substances list. Baby steps need to be leaps and bounds as we are destructing the most valuable resource known to mankind - people.
