More On Bacteria In Stomach
Ulcers - And Why This
Relates To Cancer Bacteria
Yet To Be 'Discovered'
By The Cancer Industry

From Alan Cantwell MD
I am attaching a transcript about the Nobel Prize winners showing that such bacteria in ulcers could be seen MICROSCOPICALLY -- yet they were "missed" and ignored for a century -- and the finding put some drugs out of business. This all relates directly to "bacteria in cancer" and the "four women" -- and the refusal of the cancer establishment to look at this century-old research.
It is obvious to me that the recognition of bacteria in cancer, sarcoid, scleroderma, lupus, and certain other diseases of "unknown cause" would pose a THREAT to cancer 'treatment' and drug 'therapy' business.
In the meantime, millions of people continue to suffer and die of these diseases for which the medical establishment claims the "cause" is not known--- and yet the research showing bacteria in these diseases is IGNORED. For PROOF: Google: "cancer bacteria."

Nobel Prize winners join elite group of Australians
Reporter: Mick O'Donnell
MAXINE McKEW: A call from Stockholm last night to two close mates in Perth has placed them on the elite roll of internationally celebrated scientists. Robin Warren and Barry Marshall have won the 2005 Nobel Prize for Medicine. This places them among the very few Australians - only eight - to receive the prestigious award. They join famous names such as Peter Doherty, Howard Florey and McFarlane Burnett in being honoured for ground-breaking medical research. Professors Warren and Marshall revolutionised the treatment of stomach ulers with their research in the early '80s. And like all great science discovery tales, this one has the underdogs triumphing over a dominant orthodoxy. Mick O'Donnell reports.
MICK O'DONNELL: It's a long way from the lonely years in the lab to the limelight of the Nobel laureate.
BARRY MARSHALL, 2005 NOBEL PRIZE WINNER: It's not as if we sat down one day and said, "Ulcers, that's an important problem we should tackle." We just drifted into it.
MICK O'DONNELL: But today, 20 years after their quiet laboratory breakthrough, two Western Australian medical scientists stepped gracefully, even humbly, into the glare of world attention.
BARRY MARSHALL: If you've got a balanced life you're not really going to change.
MICK O'DONNELL: Barry Marshall at 54 is a professor of microbiologist at the University of Western Australia. Robin Warren is retired at 68 after a pathology career at the Royal Perth Hospital.
ROBIN WARREN, 2005 NOBEL PRIZE WINNER: When they rang me from Stockholm suddenly the blood ran from my head - I could feel it.
BARRY MARSHALL: You didn't look well, Robin.
MICK O'DONNELL: As of last night they're Australia's newest recipients of the Nobel prize for Medicine, the world's most prestigious, joining four other Australians over recent years. Peter Doherty, the microbiologist who won in '96, just wrote a book called 'A Beginners Guide to Winning the Nobel Prize'.
PETER DOHERTY, 1996 NOBEL PRIZE WINNER: It was fantastic to see Barry and Robin win this and a tremendous accolade for Australian science and for a really rather simple but very powerful discovery that's had enormous effort on human wellbeing.
MICK O'DONNELL: Behind the humble demeanour of the two Perth winners is a quiet confidence in the significance of their research. The discovery that a bacterium, bacterium helicobacter pilori, not stress, is the cause of stomach ulcers.
PROFESSOR TERRY BOLIN, GUT FOUNDATION: It was the most revolutionary discovery in gastroenterology in the last quarter of a century. Nothing else of that dramatic nature has exceeded it.
MICK O'DONNELL: At Royal Perth Hospital back in the early '80s Robin Warren noticed a strain of bacteria in a petri dish left for longer than usual over the Easter break.
ROBIN WARREN: Just by chance I saw this bacteria from a biopsy from the stomach. I tried to show them to my colleagues in the laboratory because they looked very interesting to me. I thought they looked very interesting and no-one would believe me.
MICK O'DONNELL: Dismissed as obsessive, Warren found a kindrid spirit in Barry Marshall. The two had to fight a prevailing orthodoxy to resist the idea that a bug caused ulcers.
BARRY MARSHALL: We said, "Let's look back a bit and look down the ordinary old microscope, and we can see these bugs everywhere". And they said, "No, you can't. It's just in Western Australia, there's something wrong with that place."
MICK O'DONNELL: They teamed up and examined dozens of stomach biopsies and convinced themselves that the stress theory was simply wrong.
BARRY MARSHALL: The paradox was that many people gave up this stressful lifestyle trying to protect themselves from ulcers, and they still had the ulcers.
ROBIN WARREN: Drug companies were making masses of money out of it, too.
MICK O'DONNELL: At the time major drug companies had introduced acid reducing drugs which were prescribed in a huge worldwide market. Marshall and Warren showed a simple course of antibiotics could stop 80- 90 per cent of ulcers.
BARRY MARSHALL: A pharmaceutical company want to sell you a drug that you take every day for the rest of your life, a cholesterol drug, a diabetes drug, they are great sellers. If they sell you a drug which cures you, you only need to take it once or for one week. So how can you make it generate as much profit?
MICK O'DONNELL: You've killed the market?
BARRY MARSHALL: That's right.
ROBIN WARREN: The drugs went out of business because we stopped the bacteria so they weren't needed anymore.
MICK O'DONNELL: Today, Barry Marshall was asked over and over to repeat the anecdote that he dosed himself with the bacteria in 1984, to prove the bug they nicknamed the helicopter was the culprit.
BARRY MARSHALL: Somebody had to do it, swallow the bacteria and develop the disease.
ROBIN WARREN: He sent a piece to me and it was a very nasty and inflamed stomach.
BARRY MARSHALL: I said to my wife, "We were right." And she said, "What?" "I took the bacteria, I've got the illness." She said, "You did what?! Here we are trying to manage with all of these little children and the chaos in our lives and in the middle of it you make yourself sick." I was then threatened with eviction.
PROFESSOR TERRY BOLIN, GUT FOUNDATION: Barry was quite courageous in swallowing this concoction that apparently contained the bacteria and got terrible gastro-intestinal problems afterwards, but then it was a long road of proving the association with ulcers, the bacteria and then eradicating the ulcers with antibiotic therapy.
MICK O'DONNELL: In 1990 an international medical committee held a news conference to endorse the Marshall-Warren research.
JOHN VERREN: I saw my father die from the same problem and I'm quite convinced that I was well on the way to following in his footsteps.
MICK O'DONNELL: Now millions around the world just like Perth man John Verron have had their gastric and peptic ulcers quickly cured, thanks to these two Perth researchers.
JOHN VERREN: This is a new world. There's no reason to suffer anymore.
PROFESSOR TERRY BOLIN: Ulcers are now disappearing in the West. They're still prevalent in developing countries.
PETER DOHERTY: They'll be feeing pretty happy about it and they'll be tired and they'll be maybe even thinking a little bit, are they sure they got the right guys? I think probably not in this case because it's been out there for such a long time and people realise it's so important for such a long time, it seems such an obvious Nobel prize really.
MICK O'DONNELL: Robin Warren is retired but returned to his workplace at Royal Melbourne today for a few pats on his back. The two seem unfazed by the prize money that comes with the Nobel - $750,000 each.
BARRY MARSHALL: It's monopoly money, just the numbers that you can't comprehend really.
ROBIN WARREN: My computer crashed last night and at the same time Barry has got about 100 emails from around the world. Perhaps it's a good time for my computer to crash. Perhaps I'll buy a big new computer (Laughs).
MAXINE MCKEW: Maybe he will. A couple of great new champions for science.

Review by Joan d'Arc
Four Women Against Cancer presents the early revolutionary microbe research of four great women scientists: physician Virginia Livingston, MD; microbiologist Eleanor Alexander-Jackson; cell cytologist Irene Diller; and biochemist Florence Seibert. Dr. Cantwell explores the "mysterious" microbial cause of various diseases and relates it to the origin of life. According to cancer researcher Vincent Gammill, "you won't find a better overview of the scientific justification for a bacterial etiology of cancer and the great lengths to which the medical establishment will go to suppress this research."
In his long career as a dermatologist, Dr. Cantwell specialized in Kaposi's Sarcoma, an AIDs-related skin cancer. He is the author of The Cancer Microbe (1990), AIDS and the Doctors of Death (1992), Queer Blood: Secret AIDS Genocide Plot (1993), and is a frequent contributor to Paranoia, including Back in the 1950s, he writes, four women discovered the "cancer germ" that continues to be denied by the cancer industry. This infectious agent had characteristics of both bacteria and virus, and produced a hormone that allowed continual reproduction and renewal. Not only does Dr. Cantwell discuss the bacterial etiology of cancer, but he tells the story of how similar microbes are related to other infectious diseases, such as AIDS-related cancer, leprosy and scleroderma.
Dr. Cantwell's chapter on scleroderma is most interesting. Scleroderma is a horrible disease that slowly encases the victim in hardened skin. In this chapter, Dr. Cantwell befriends Dr. Virginia Livingston, who had discovered that the etiology of scleroderma was similar to leprosy, which is known to have a bacterial cause. Dr. Cantwell ends up taking a trip to a morgue to obtain a skin specimen of a man who had recently died of scleroderma (and he finds the mortician quite amenable to his taking the specimen)! In fact, the bacterial etiology of scleroderma was what led Virginia to look for a microbe as the cause of cancer. By the time her report on scleroderma was published, she had discovered the bacterial etiology of cancer. According to Dr. Livingston, Progenitor cryptocides is the germ that allows life to reproduce, but is also the taker of life: the cause of aberrant cell reproduction.
In their suppressed clinical research of the 1950s, both Virginia and Eleanor had used "autogenous" vaccines, tailor made from the patient's own specific bacteria, to immunize their patients against cancer and other diseases. Virginia had proposed not only that all infants be immunized at birth against P. cryptocides, but that cattle and chickens be immunized in order to eliminate cancer from the food chain. Virginia's animal vaccines had been highly successful in decreasing cancer in animals, and her chicken cancer vaccine was licensed in 1986. This woman was clearly before her time: She advocated the immunization of family pets, and she promoted vegetarianism!
As Dr. Cantwell tells us, in 1990 the California Health Department ordered Dr. Livingston to cease and desist the use of autogenous vaccines to treat cancer. There had been no patient complaints against her clinic. She wrote optimistically, "I am confident that all my findings will be universally corroborated and that my treatment methods, or close variations thereof, will eventually become the prevalent treatment of cancer." Could it be the cancer industry didn't want to find a cure?
In the end, the cancer establishment never took these women's ideas seriously and never invested a dime into research to see whether they were on the right trail. As Dr. Cantwell writes, Virginia was expected to prove with her own finances to both the National Cancer Institute and the FDA that her vaccines were safe and effective against cancer. Her vaccines were labeled quackery and she endured vicious slander by the press.
In fact, this valid scientific research into the bacterial cause of cancer continues to be derided by the cancer establishment to this day, even though a bacterial cause for many diseases - from tonsilitis to peptic ulcers to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - is in the news practically every day! Indeed, a significant body of evidence exists for bacterial translocation (passage across the intestinal barrier) and multiple organ failure!
When viewed under the microscope, Four Women Against Cancer cracks open the case for a suppressed cancer cure and a capitalistic cancer 'industry' with more to gain by keeping us sick.
