I’m only joking obviously. If you know someone with cancer and they want sponsoring for something, please sponsor them: there’s a good chance you won’t have to pay. Frankie Boyle, cited Utterly Outrageous X-Rated Comedy II: You Can’t Say That! Channel 5 2019
Then Steve Jobs learned he had cancer. Steve Jobs: iChanged the World, Channel 4 2011
In the last ten years a number of highly regarded doctors and scientists from both Europe and the United States have been publishing extremely encouraging data on the anti-cancer qualities of cannabinoids. (Cannabis & Cancer) Marijuana True History

Any alternative cancer cure is bogus by definition. There will never be an alternative cancer cure. Why? Because if something looked halfway promising, then mainstream oncology would scrutinize it, and if there is anything to it, it would become mainstream almost automatically and very quickly. All curative ‘alternative cancer cures’ are based on false claims, are bogus, and, I would say, even criminal. Edzard Ernst
I want to let you all know that a cure for cancer exists right now, as we sit here, as I’m speaking, as I’m drawing breath. Since the 1990s there’s been a researcher in the United State – he’s a Japanese researcher named Dr Yamamoto – who has cured each and every case of cancer he’s come across. And he’s done this in a very simple way with a once-weekly injection of a very natural substance ... GCMAF ... The conventional approach ends up killing a lot of people. Scott Tips, Health Freedom, The European Union and Codex Alimentarius
You have alternative therapies that are being suppressed. For Cancer, like I said before, there are only three legal ways to deal with it ... And that is cut, poison or burn. Radiation, chemotherapy or surgery. The competition is banned, but how do they do it? They don’t do it in the market place. They do it by using the government’s coercive powers. Using government agencies like the Food and Drug Administration to go in and force the monopoly. ibid.
The takeover of the medical industry was accomplished by the take-over of the medical schools. Well the people we’re talking about – Rockefeller and Carnegie in particular – came to the picture and said, We will put up money ... They skewed the whole thing in the direction of pharmaceutical drugs. G Edward Griffin, World Without Cancer
Anything that comes from Nature can’t be patented. G Edward Griffin
Henrietta Lacks’ body was taken back south to be buried. Dr Guy kept what he had done a secret from her family. He was worried they might sue him. He gave the cells a codename HeLa. And told everyone they came from a woman called Helen Lane. Henrietta Lack was forgotten by science. But her cells were about to become world famous. For the first time anything could be tested on living human cells. Adam Curtis, The Way of All Flesh, BBC 1997
By the 1970s those is charge of the war on cancer realised they were as far away as ever from understanding why cells became cancerous. Billions of dollars had been spent but they had found no virus. ibid.
But at this very moment of scientific despair a new theory of how to conquer cancer emerged. And yet again behind its rise to power was Henrietta Lacks and her cells. It came from a new generation of scientists who believed that cancer was not caused by a virus from outside: it came from inside. From the genes. ibid.
The new technology of gene mapping gave technologists a feeling of power and confidence. They became convinced that they would find the cause of cancer. They would open up the cells and isolate the cancer genes. ibid.
The bad news: it’s malignant; the good news: I’m going to save a few quid in haircuts. Rab C Nesbitt: Growth, BBC 1997
66,094. Cancer, eh? Actually draw A C Milan away that one. Once an alien force starts using your colon as a spicy beanburger, well it’s only a matter of time. ibid.
I know you’re meant to be brave and resilient and plucky up to the end – I cannot be arsed. Rab C Nesbitt: Semmitry, BBC 1997
After a decade of intensive research a new order of medicine is entering the final stage of trails. That of genetically targeted medicine. So-called personalised medicine. For cancer patients targeted drugs hold the promise of being more effective. Horizon: Miracle Cure? A Decade of the Human Genome, BBC 2010
There is one disease that touches all of our lives. A disease whose diagnosis can be devastating. More than one in three of us will get it in our lifetime. Cancer is one of the most complex diseases to treat because it is part of us. Horizon: Defeating Cancer, BBC 2012
Known as Cyberknife the robot will allow the team to use far higher doses of radiation per treatment session. ibid.
Cancer is so notoriously difficult to treat. ibid.
When cells go wrong the body has a particular way of dealing with them. The cells can kill themselves. It may sound strange but this is essential to keep us healthy. ibid.
Once the cells become cancerous the body can no longer control them. ibid.
A vast improvement in our understanding of what cancer is. Cancer occurs when our cells divide out of control. ibid.
In some cases faulty genes are inherited. ibid.
What’s it like to be young and find out you’ve got cancer? … What we can learn from them … Teenage bloodymindedness. Horizon: Teenagers v Cancer: A User’s Guide, BBC 2018

There are over 200 different types of cancer. Horizon: Are Health Tests Really a Good Idea? Michael Mosley, BBC 2015
Something remarkable is happening in the heart of two of our biggest cities. One of the most advanced and expensive cancer treatments in the world is being installed in Manchester and London. This is no ordinary medical cure. It will involve two nine-ton machines firing beams of radiation at two-thirds the speed of light. It will cost more than a quarter of billion pounds, but it will save thousands of lives. Until now, patients in need of this pioneering treatment have had to travel abroad … Proton Beam Therapy. Horizon: The 250 Million Pound Cancer Cure, BBC 2019
A crucial piece of technology that will sit within it – the Cyclotron. ibid.

If conventional therapy has such limited results, why isn’t the medical profession willing to investigate new approaches? ibid.
The Pharmaceutical industry first gained control of the teaching system. ibid.
Just like Rene, Hoxsey turned down the offer because he could not get the guarantee that the formula would be made available for free. ibid.
Surprisingly, Harry Hoxsey became the first man ever to win a judgment against Dr Fishbein and the AMA. ibid.
Dr Fishbein admitted in court that Hoxsey’s supposedly brutal pastes actually did cure external cancers. ibid.
Vitamin B-17 ... is an effective cure against many kinds of cancers. ibid.
In January last year I was diagnosed with cervical cancer … Are we making the right choices in how we deal with cancer … Is searching for cancer always a good idea? Horizon: Making Sense of Cancer, Hannah Fry reporting, BBC 2022
