Apparently the cancer answer, in Reams' view, is to be sure the body has abundant minerals it needs to build fresh cells even as old dead cells are being flushed away with distilled water, augmented with the scouring power of lemon juice.
How simple...and how different from the drug-company mentality taking root in government offices. There is a push---driven by profit---to prescribe cancer drugs to you and I even though we are cancer-free.
What quaint thinking: are diabetes drugs on the agenda for people who are not diabetic? Should you and I pop penicillin tablets each morning to be sure we don't get an infection? Should young men sometimes embarrassed by inadvertent erection take Viagra to be sure an opposite embarrassment could never be possible? And---as the above headline spoofs---should we give daily, or hourly, aspirin tablets to all so as to guarantee no one ever has a headache?
Few people reading these words will not remember hearing of at least one person who had their breasts removed by doctor suggestion so that "they could never get breast cancer." Our current American diet and lifestyle leads millions to prostate cancer. Should we encourage men to have their prostate removed so that "they can never get prostate cancer"? Should we study hard to determine the best age to do this? Should we zero in on puberty?
Carey Reams focused on finding the cause of illness. He tended to generally ignore results. Drugs, he said, "do nothing." Actually, it appears that drugs do interfere with the body's efforts to signal us or compensate for violations of nature's laws. So, yes, the aspirin tablet does paralyze the pain signal meant to keep us away from harmful activity.
It may be best to stop without mention of brain cancer. Today's brain surgeon who removes diseased parts of brains never bothers to learn Reams' explanation that potassium deficiency leads to lesion and therefore he or she never focuses on cause. We can only hope that brain surgeons don't get ideas from breast surgeons who think prophylactically. Perhaps we should appreciate our headaches.
