I want to offer sincere apologies to the 7,500 of our 14,500 or so subscribers who received a message today asking you to confirm your desire to be on the WantToKnow.info email list. That was a mistake. I am doing my best to rectify the situation. I will not have time to answer all the emails coming in about this. This message is meant to explain what's happening. The 7,000 subscribers who did not receive this confirmation email can ignore this message. I'm also including below the normal message that went out today to those 7,000, but did not go out to the others.
To understand why this happened, let me give a brief background. As too many of our emails were being filtered to spam, we chose to switch to a new email service provider. We first chose Constant Contact to be our provider about two months ago. Unfortunately, though very few messages were filtered to spam. there were problems with functionality there. We then switched to GetResponse about a month ago. Sadly, though they had great functionality, some emails were still being filtered to spam. So just yesterday I signed up for AWeber, which I hoped would provide both good functionality and high deliverability rates.
When I uploaded our database of subscribers to AWeber yesterday, initially they could only accept 7,000 of our 14,500 subscribers, as they monitor new users closely and understandably wanted to make sure our list of subscribers contained legitimate email addresses. They asked me to send a message out to the 7,000 accepted subscribers, so that they could verify the legitimacy of our readers. I was told that I would then be able to send this message out to the remainder of the list after verification. So I sent out a message on a great video about suppressed cancer treatments, which is now included below in this message for those who did not receive it.
I got approval today to upload the remaining 7,500 subscribers. Unfortunately, I must have done something that caused all 7,500 subscribers to receive the above-mentioned confirmation message, which did not go out to the first 7,000. As it is set up right now, I can't send a message out to any of those subscribers until they click the confirmation email. I'm working to change that, so that all 7,500 email addresses will be automatically uploaded. So you do not need to respond to that confirmation message, though there is no problem if you did. I'm sending this message out from GetResponse, rather than AWeber, so that I can reach all of you.
I am sorry that I have not yet been able fix this situation, but I hope to have it remedied by Monday, when our next email is due to go out. By then, I should be able to add all 7,500 subscribers without anyone needing to confirm with the link in that email. I ask your patience around this. In our news summary Monday, I plan to give an update of how this has worked out. I'm almost certain we will be back to normal service after that.
Once again, I apologize that I will not have time to answer the many emails coming in about this and I apologize for the inconvenience. Take care, and enjoy the weekend.
Note: For those who did not see it, below is the message that went out to some subscribers today.

"One of the great things about [potential cancer cure] DCA is that it's a simple compound, in the public domain, and could be produced for pennies a dose. But that's also a problem, because big drug companies are unlikely to spend a billion dollars or so on large-scale clinical trials for a compound they can't patent."
~~ Newsweek article on potential cancer cure DCA, 1/23/07
The alleged cancer cures presented in the excellent video documentary "Cancer: The Forbidden Cures" are well worth exploring. Though not yet proven under rigorous scientific protocols which are very expensive, there is no doubt that thousands of people doctors had sent home to die were cured after taking the cancer treatments presented in this engaging documentary. If you or someone you know is dealing with cancer, this essay and film provide a wealth of invaluable information on negotiating the daunting labyrinth of cancer treatment.
Regardless of the efficacy of the potential cancer cures presented in this documentary, the fact that top medical officials undeniably suppressed these treatments is enough to warrant attention. The fact that big money was offered to buy the rights to the some of these controversial cancer cures also attests to their value. And the fact that so many people sent home to die by the medical establishment now are alive and swear by these treatments also suggests at least some value.
A highly informative 20-minute version of "Cancer: The Forbidden Cures" is available at the link below. If you want to understand the complex world of alternative cancer treatments and be inspired with real hope for finding a cure, this is a must-watch video.
If you don't have time, at least watch the five-minute version at this link. And for those interested, click here for the entire 72-minute documentary. Though providing a much fuller story and some excellent information, the full version of "Cancer: The Forbidden Cures" has a tendency to paint allopathic medicine as all bad. Clearly Western medicine has its place. Yet there is ample evidence that it can be somewhat myopic in its views on alternative medicine. As there are so few good documentaries on this topic, the film's producers can be forgiven for their anti-allopathic sentiments.
"Cancer: The Forbidden Cures" presents Essiac, the Hoxsey treatment, Gerson therapy, laetrile, and shark cartilage as potential cancer cures. For more on these, click on the links provided. This film explains how it is virtually impossible for these inexpensive, natural treatments to receive government approval. The FDA requires extremely expensive clinical trials to demonstrate the efficacy of treatment, yet due to minimal profit in natural cures, trials will likely never be conducted, thus preventing approval of natural treatments, even if they do cure cancer.
The Medical Establishment Doesn't Want an Inexpensive Cancer Cure
Even more problematic are those within the medical industry who have a vested interest in preventing alternative treatments from even gaining publicity, let alone approval. Chemotherapy drugs net billions of dollars in profits every year, fattening the wallets of physicians and drug company officers and stockholders. The respected American Medical Association (AMA) also reaps major profits from cancer medication advertisements and promotions.
Few people are aware of the unsavory history of the AMA and its Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). This influential organization and its leaders became wealthy and powerful in the first half of the 20th century through selectively granting a seal of approval for untested drugs only to companies who would pay hefty fees to the AMA, and through major income from the tobacco industry for JAMA's promotions of cigarette smoking and its false claims about cigarette safety. For a brief essay describing these corrupt practices and more, click here.
"Cancer: The Forbidden Cures" reveals that the controversial man who was chief editor of the JAMA for 26 years, Morris Fishbein, worked tirelessly to prevent any potential cancer cure that was not under the control of the medical establishment from seeing the light of day. Fishbein, who was glowingly featured in a 1937 cover story of Time magazine, was actively involved in suppressing the alleged cancer cures in two of the five cases presented in this documentary, as well as many others not mentioned.
An article in Time only two years later describes how Fishbein and the AMA were indicted for profiteering through limiting a patient's choice of doctor and preventing competition among doctors. Fishbein was also the main force behind the AMA's promotion of smoking. After leaving the AMA, he became consultant to a tobacco company dedicated to minimizing any link between smoking and cancer. Quite the opposite of the New England Journal of Medicine's courageous chief editor Marcia Angell, who worked tirelessly to expose the blatant manipulations of the drug industry, Fishbein was seen by many as much more interested in making money than in protecting public health.
"Cancer: The Forbidden Cures" further shows how famous cancer institutes like the esteemed Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center prevented both studies and the publication of any information that might show that alternative treatments did, in fact, have significant cancer cure rates. Read what Sloan-Kettering's own assistant director of public affairs, Dr. Ralph Moss (now a top advocate of alternative cancer therapies), had to say about this in his essay at this link. Moss was fired simply for speaking the truth of what he saw. Many in the medical establishment clearly have a vested interest in suppressing any natural cancer cures.
The Good News
The exciting news is that thanks to the Internet and caring people like you, the truth is reaching ever greater numbers of people around the globe. Whereas in the past, top medical officials could manipulate the press and public opinion with their power and prestige, the Internet now allows any discerning citizen to explore what is really going on behind the scenes. Quality websites like WantToKnow.info are using reliable, verifiable information to educate the public and inspiring us to work together to build a brighter future for us all.
Read below key excerpts from recent major media articles showing fascinating potential cancer cures that are getting neither the funding nor the public attention they deserve. A few highly revealing articles like this have made news, yet what should have been exciting, front-page news is often reported only by one media source and then dropped. Thankfully, by compiling these key, isolated reports, we can show what is going on here and work together to bring these promising treatments the attention and funding they deserve.
The media's continuing lack of coverage on this vital topic is quite disappointing. For an excellent two-page summary showing how the media is controlled on key topics like this, click here. Yet now you can help to educate others and build the critical mass necessary by spreading this message. Once we reach critical mass, the media will be forced to report on these matters and the public will demand change. See the "What you can do" section at the end of this message for more.

Excerpts from Revealing Media Articles on Cancer Cures
A New Way to Fight Cancer?
There are no magic bullets in the fight against cancer: that's the first thing every responsible scientist mentions when discussing a possible new treatment, no matter how promising. If there were a magic bullet, though, it might be something like dichloroacetate, or DCA, a drug that kills cancer cells by exploiting a fundamental weakness found in a wide range of solid tumors. So far, though, it kills them just in test tubes and in rats infected with human cancer cells; it has never been tested against cancer in living human beings. DCA ... is an existing drug whose side effects are well-studied and relatively tolerable. Also, it's a small molecule that might be able to cross the blood-brain barrier to reach otherwise intractable brain tumors. Within days after a technical paper on DCA appeared in the journal Cancer Cell last week, the lead author, Dr. Evangelos Michelakis of the University of Alberta, was deluged with calls and e-mails from prospective patients–to whom he can say only, "Hang in there." DCA is a remarkably simple molecule. It acts in the body to promote the activity of the mitochondria. Researchers have assumed that the mitochondria in cancer cells were irreparably damaged. But Michelakis wondered if that was really true. With his colleagues he used DCA to turn back on the mitochondria in cancer cells–which promptly died. One of the great things about DCA is that it's a simple compound, in the public domain, and could be produced for pennies a dose. But that's also a problem, because big drug companies are unlikely to spend a billion dollars or so on large-scale clinical trials for a compound they can't patent.

Thank you Newsweek for publishing this important article. Why haven't any other mass media reported this major story? Why aren't millions of dollars being poured into research? Notice that even Newsweek acknowledges that the drug companies are not interested in finding a cancer cure if they can't make a profit from it. Some suspect the drug companies have often suppressed cancer cures found in the past. For one amazing example of this, click here. More on DCA available here.
Injected Cells Cure Tumors in Mice
2006-05-09, Los Angeles Times
White blood cells from mice that are naturally immune to cancer cured tumors in other mice and provided them with lifelong immunity to the disease, researchers reported Monday. The finding indicates the existence of a biological pathway previously unsuspected in any species. A small team of researchers is working to understand the genetic and immunological basis of the surprising phenomenon. Preliminary studies hint at the existence of a similar resistance in humans. Researchers hope that harnessing the biological process could lead to a new approach to treating cancer. But Dr. Zhen Cui of Wake Forest, whose team published the findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, said he expected rapid replication of the results because the findings were so clear-cut and easily observed. "This is a truly remarkable phenomenon -- and it really needs confirmation from other institutions," he said. The team took white blood cells from the immune mice ... and injected them into mice already carrying a variety of tumors, some of which were extremely aggressive. In every case, the cancers were destroyed, even if the cells were injected at a point distant from the tumor. Healthy tissues were not affected. The mice that received the cells, furthermore, were protected from new tumors for the rest of their lives. The researchers have no idea how the immunity continues.
Note: Why was this not in the headlines and not given a title like "Cancer Cure Found for Mice"? Most major papers didn't even report the story, and an article in the New York Times was simply titled "A Strain of Mice Appears Able to Resist Cancer Cells." Could it be that the power brokers in the medical industry know that a cancer cure would cause huge financial losses for them?

In Tests, Vitamin D Shrinks Breast Cancer Cells
2010-02-22, ABC News
Doctors have known that low levels of vitamin D are linked to certain kinds of cancers as well as to diabetes and asthma, but new research also shows that the vitamin can kill human cancer cells. The results fall short of an immediate cancer cure, but they are encouraging, medical professionals say. JoEllen Welsh, a researcher with the State University of New York at Albany, has studied the effects of vitamin D for 25 years. Part of her research involves taking human breast cancer cells and treating them with a potent form of vitamin D. Within a few days, half the cancer cells shriveled up and died. Welsh said the vitamin has the same effect as a drug used for breast cancer treatment. "Vitamin D enters the cells and triggers the cell death process," she [said]. "It's similar to what we see when we treat cells with Tamoxifen," a drug used to treat breast cancer. The vitamin's effects were even more dramatic on breast cancer cells injected into mice. After several weeks of treatment, the cancer tumors in the mice shrank by an average of more than 50 percent. Some tumors disappeared. Similar results have been achieved on colon and prostate cancer tumors in mice.
